Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely restaurant that was full on a Sunday evening. The staff were friendly and efficient. The cheese souffle starter was delicious. My beef bourguignon was served with lovely soft mashed potato. The only downside was the French bean side dish. It was send back...uneaten with the comment that I would not pay for it. The beans were undercooked. I am aware that they should have bite and texture, but these had only been dipped in hot water! A silly mistake that has cost them the full 5 star rating.More

We always enjoy a visit to Cote restaurants and this one did not disappoint. It was our first of 3 nights in Cirencester and we had a lovely evening. We were made welcome immediately we entered the restaurant. Had requested a cosy corner and they...had kept a perfect table for us. A complimentary glass of sparkling wine was enjoyed while we were browsing the menu. Food and house wine were good and can highly recommend the creme caramel to round off the meal.More

We had an excellent evening meal earlier this week. Good greeting and service from the start to the end of the meal. I had chicken and my husband had pork belly after a soup starter. Both meals were beautiful. Although it was a Monday evening...it was quite busy and had a good atmosphere. When we return to Cirencester we will definitely revisit!More

Food overall was pretty good, not outstanding but good. The service, however, was poor. We were greeted by a young guy who clearly didn't want to be there. Drinks just dumped on the table, and no interest in talking or going through the menu, nothing....Everytine we looked up he was on his mobile phone. Order for food consequently went through to the kitchen wrong and one of the dishes arrived incorrect. They did put this right, but only after us chasing for the replacement. They were more interested in giving us the bill and going home. Would not return due to the poor service here. There are many other options around.More

This has been my Mother’s favourite place to eat in Cirencester for many years and she and my father have been many times, often with friends too. She chose to have a family lunch there to celebrate her 90th birthday. I mentioned this on the...online reservation form (since they specifically ask you if you’re celebrating a particular occasion). However, on the day, no member of staff said a word about it. We were not expecting anything special but a “happy birthday” would have gone a long way to make a very elderly lady extra happy on her special day. She now feels that her business over many years is totally unappreciated. I expect they will just say they were too busy but that really isn’t good enough. Oh and after the lunch, I had a “how did we do”? email from Côte, on which I mentioned the above. No response, of course.More

We ate here as a group of 7, everyone ordered from the fixed menu but I ordered a sirloin steak from the a la carte menu, I have eaten here on numerous occasions since they first opened and often have the sirloin steak, was very...disappointed and mentioned to the waiter serving us I thought it was a minute steak rather than a sirloin but he did nothing about it, the sirloins are usually pretty thick and for £22.95 this was pretty poor, our bill was over £300.
