“Marvellous lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I was looking forward to visiting Cote in Wokingham as I had already had a good dining experience at their restaurant in Windsor. I was not disappointed.
I dined with five others for a midweek lunch and we all chose from the 'fixed price' menu. The food was excellent...well cooked, and of a high standard for quality. One the party chose the minute steak (always slightly risky) and he commented on its tenderness. The portions are adequate but not huge and we happily went ahead and had a dessert each...the rich chocolate pot with creme fraiche being a firm favourite. The three course meal cost £13.90 each - a very reasonable price for such a good meal.
The service was very good; the staff being unhurried but not sluggish and attentive without being intrusive.
The room at the front of the building was rather noisy and I would recommend a table further back inside the restaurant.
Well done Cote...I look forward to visiting again

“Great atmospere fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

The staff were amazing there when you needed them but kept a discreet distance so weren't crowded.
We went in a big group and the food was amazing and added to our night.
The price is also very reasonable.
Highly recommend for any occasion as the way the restaurant is set up its suitable for big groups or romantic evenings.
Well done to all the staff and I look forward to my next visit.

“Very dissapointed - won't be returning...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Was very excited about trying the new Cote restaurant, however our 1st visit was very dissapointing!! We were approached by a female waitress, who was quite abrupt & not welcoming at all...seemed annoyed that we hadnt booked, even though it had just gone 5:30pm!! The same unhappy waitress then took my food order down wrong, even though she had actually repeated it back to me?!?! We were served by 3 different members of staff (we were only in there an hour) Food was very dissapointing... Mine incorrect, my colleagues' crepes overcooked & tasteless, where was the cheese? If you want a nice start to your weekend, don't go to Cote...

“Good for a business lunch ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

This is the second time this month I've been to lunch at Côte, both for business purposes, honest!
The building is huge and really spacious so even when it's busy you don't feel crammed in like you do at some of the other Wokingham restaurants! We were really impressed the 1st time we went but we went again this week for the 2nd time and although the starter of calamari I had was excellent and a huge portion the fish pie was watery and didn't taste anywhere near as nice as it has done a few weeks before when my colleague had it!
I don't like the added service charge, but it seems to be something a lot of restaurants are doing!!!
