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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had breakfast today. Ordered salmon and eggs with a side order of spinach. Eggs were scrambled and fine. Sourdough toast (unbuttered) also okay. The smoked salmon was horrible. Very salty, scrappy slimy bits which looked and tasted as though they had been defrosted, re-frosted and...defrosted several times.the spinach was interesting: half cooked, by which I mean half of the serving was cooked and the other half raw. If you like spinach salad, fine. Otherwise, rather off-putting. The coffee was okay. I think in future I’ll stick to Oliver’s in Belsize Lane - consistently good and better value for money.More

Perfect meal, fair prices and very attentive and interested service. Cannot fault the meals - they are very fairly priced with what seems to ve the same level of overhead as places double the cost.

Visited for a birthday brunch on a Sunday and the service was poor from start to finish. Completely disorganised staffing - we were served by a different staff member for every interaction, clearly no sectioning meaning staff were running around panicked trying to manage every...single table. Male manager/supervisor was rude to both staff and customers. Drinks (tea and coffee) took 20 minutes to arrive, and only arrived when we prompted a member of staff once we saw them waiting on the bar. We ended up asking 3 different members of staff for tap water before we received any. A lady on a table nearby received a full English instead of a vegetarian breakfast and had to physically stand up and wave to get anybody's attention to fix the issue. Food itself was lovely but the fried eggs came basically raw, so we had to request them to be redone. Manager decided to come over and apologise once we'd already paid and were ready to leave, and offered a meagre excuse that "they were busy" - I counted 12 tables including ours and at least 5 servers on shift, which in my experience is overstaffed if anything.More

Artur and his team at Cote Hampstead looked after our group of 25 retired nurses with great kindness and efficiency. It was our 50 year reunion and small details really mattered. The staff were friendly and thoughtful and we were able to arrive early and...set the tables with our own flowers, table napkins and name badges, plus lay out old photos and memorabilia. Everyone said their food was delicious, and there was no problem with people having 1, 2 or 3 courses. 18 of us left for a walk after 2.5 hours, the others stayed and were made very welcome for another 1.5 hours. Great service, great value, we will definitely go back. Thank you, Artur and team.More

First visit back to this branch in 4 years after a bad meal. Food not even as good as before, wasn't impressed at all. Had an £80 Cote voucher from the visit 4 years ago which was not honoured. Yes it was expired but what...with Covid and we had lost the voucher I would have thought Cote Head Office would be cooperative. Sadly they were not helpful so we won't be going back again. How not to treat returning customers.More

The welcome was good - the service average. The bread served which is not complimentary, was too hard and not served warm. The Calamari was tasty and the mains portion of Chicken plentiful. One of the mains out of 3 was brought to the table...half way through starter. We waited a long time to order our dessert. 80% of the staff seemed to be more wrapped up in flirting and joking with each other rather than seeming attentive to customers. It was not rush hour dinner service at this point so perhaps they wanted to have fun before the rush! Although it was very obvious the 20% of staff did not want to be tarnished with the same brush unfortunately couldn’t carry off an overall good service. I would not return here for dinner, but would come back for an unplanned lunch! Thank you.More

Our first time at Cote in Hampstead. We booked lunch with the offer of a bottle of free wine - we opted for the white which was excellent. We both ordered from the Xmas menu - plenty of choices.
