Great atmosphere, nice food also offer gluten free menu and very friendly staff.
Yummy cuisine, talented chef, competitive price and nice service.
Great value brunch menu, with good selection of french recipes
Came for breakfast and were served quickly. Great to have a gluten free menu and to know that Cote has coeliac accreditation. Unfortunately the food was hit and miss: good salmon and scrambled eggs but overcooked poached eggs and spinach served with way too much garlic, especially for breakfast food. When we told the waitress she didn’t seem to care.
Friday 9/7/21 at 8pm. The food was exceptional. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere was great.I booked this restaurant for my girlfriend’s birthday as a suprise, we were not disappointed.The restaurant customer service was top notch, from when I rang to book the table, until we left. We both left the restaurant talking and feeling like we had gone out for a nice meal. Now I know this sounds silly, but I’ve paid a lot of money to eat out in restaurants and they’ve been dirty, run down, cheap looking etc… not this place.I ordered the Devon Crab Maison for starter…. I didn’t want it to end!!! My girlfriend asked me why I was taking such small mouthfuls? My answer was it tastes so Good! My main was the Brittany fish stew, sea bass, prawns, squid, mussels, chilli and white wine, every mouthful was a different flavour. Delicious.When I phoned to book the table during this difficult time with Covid-19, I said to the person on the phone that it was my girlfriend’s birthday, and they said to leave it in their hands… When we sat down the waitress complimented my girlfriend’s dress and then bought out two glasses of champagne and wished her a happy birthday. The ambience was perfect, it felt like a date night. As customers, the staff made us feel comfortable and happy. The service was perfect, I couldn’t fault it.The bill… I’ve paid over triple the price for very average food. The whole experience was one of the best I’ve had… We had Olives, 2 glasses of French white wine, 2 starters, 2 mains for £70… We both are looking forward to going back.
Wasn’t impressed this time. We have been coming to Cote for many years and even had my 50th party here, but unfortunately I was disappointed when I went last week. The service was very good as usual, but I found the prices had risen considerably. I can understand this but when the crab costs £9.95 and tastes like tuna mayonnaise Im not happy. I’ve had fish stew many times, usually 2 pieces sea bass in a tasty stew. This time however was completely overcooked with 1 piece of sea bass, hard prawns, and new potatoes? So disappointed, I wouldn’t have left a tip but its automatically added. Sorry Cote there are many restaurants in St Albans so after ten years my custom will be going elsewhere. Maybe you have a new chef but whatever has changed, it is not good.
