Dining out alone was delightful as I sat in the window area to people watch. Tables are close together giving diners an easy opportunity to chat with fellow diners!

“Excellent customer service”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

My husband and I are big fans of the Cote restaurant chain and the Oxford restaurant did not disappoint. I ordered the fillet steak medium rare (which I know is usually cooked exactly right) however, on this occasion it came well done. The staff handled this extremely professionally but I did have to wait for another to be cooked, which when it arrived was perfect! Making what could have been a dining disaster into a very pleasurable experience.

They made a generous gesture on our bill to make up for the error and inconvenience, which was totally unexpected. Again, another example of the level of professionalism and customer service by the restaurant management and staff, you expect this from Michelin starred restaurants but not necessarily in a chain. Full marks to the way Cote train their staff and to the staff themselves.

“First Class Food”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We had an excellent dinner at Cote Brasserie In Oxford. The food was delicious and presented well. The staff were friendly and efficient and, overall, it was a very good experience! We will definitely go there again. It may be a chain but it performs at a higher standard.

“A great lunch and supper”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

During a recent visit to Oxford our task was to find a good restaurant for a group. As a result we had lunch and supper there. Both where very satisfactory. This is a smaller place than the big restaurants right in the centre of the city. However it is only about two or three blocks away and close to several theatres. Service was good as was the food. As it turned out one of our group had asked a local for a recommendation for supper and you guessed it, this was the place they recommended.

“Very good food”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Both the food (although a bit pricey) and the service are consistently very good. Last time we went there was to celebrate a graduation and they even gave us complimentary prosecco :)
Also, the lunch menu is affordable and very tasty.
