What makes good food taste great? Great service. Côte Brasserie has both. We, without a booking, were squeezed in for a birthday meal. Treated so warmly and got our food in more than enough time to enjoy it. Their two and three course menus are a bargain.
This restaurant exemplifies the French style and grace that is looking to portray. Being part of a chain, the decor of Côte Brasserie is in line with the other branches, but it is modern, sleek and fairly roomy inside. The smaller tables for two can be a bit too close together, but the larger booth like tables for 4 provide more privacy.
The service is exceptional with patient and courteous staff that is there to support your dining experience. The front of house greets guest warmly and is always surveying the restaurant to ensure everyone is happy.
The food is of good quality, in particular, the ribeye steak is exceptional. The portions are on the small side. However, when combined as a full meal is sufficient to meet your hunger. The a la carte menu provides a good choice of lighter and more substantial Bistro style meals. It does try to represent the regional French food via a few quirky dishes like Pissaladière and duck with cherry sauce.
We had calamari to start which was cooked perfectly. I had the ribeye steak with fries, my fiancée had the duck confit. We also had apple tarts for dessert. Everything was so tasty and the staff were excellent with us.
The selection of wine covers a number of regions of France and provides a good variety. There are various specials and offers to help support most budgets.
We had a lovely meal here, and were impressed by the food quality and the speed of service. I am looking forward to going back sometime in the near future. I would wholeheartedly recommend it anyone who is looking for a nice dinner out.
