Six of us for Sunday lunch. Restaurant busy but service impeccable. All food fresh and delicious. Prices fair. What's not to like?

We visited Cote for a Saturday morning breakfast in February. It wasn't too busy and we were able to choose from a few tables as to where we wanted to sit. Servers offered us the breakfast menu and immediately took drinks orders. They allowed for small changes / replacements to food items you did not want, without any hesitation. Food... More

I find it hard to criticize this place. Sure it's not "fine dining", indeed it's almost the opposite - solid enjoyable brasserie food served in a no nonsense style. The food is simple and always done well, with robust flavours in true French style. It's not expensive, and the set menu for early diners is great. The service treads the... More

We visited the Cote in St Albans. There were four of us for a lunch time meal we had two courses for under £11 which was good value for money. The staff were very friendly and the sorroundings were good too

Visited for my mums 60th birthday, Cote really went the extra mile for us. They arranged for a larger table out of the way for 8 of us, including three children, catered to all our needs. Staff bought out the cake we had arranged earlier and sang happy birthday to my mum, she felt really special. Food was quick, piping... More

We have visited here on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. Food again was amazing, especially the fish pie which seemed to have endless delicious flavours. Vegetables were cooked to perfection. Unusually for Cote the service wasn't as friendly and efficient as expected. The waiter lacked the personality needed to help make our evening special. Although this didn't... More

Came here in a group of four and we all enjoyed our starters. The calimari, fougasse bread and charcuterie board were all well received. Then the main course. Two of us ordered the roast duck, one beef bourgignon and one rib-eye steak. The steak was hot but the other three dishes were all served cold and we had to send... More

Our inspiration for the food and design of Cote is a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros of Paris. Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities.
Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly
