Very few restaurants have the same ability as Côte Brasserie to establish themselves in consistently premium locations and offer genuinely affordable food, yet never look out of place. This, believe us, is not easy, but it certainly goes to show the calibre of Côte Brasserie as the most loved family of French restaurants in the UK. This particular Côte is in perhaps the most premium location of them all, sitting pretty on London’s Sloane Square – right on the boundaries of Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea – and offering all-day French dining that we simply just love. The food is varied, always fresh and always prepared with care.
Sloane Square. Côte Brasserie. French food. It’s all happening in London and we’re excited. Côte Brasserie, we’re sure you’re aware, is a name known across the UK and this great capital for casual, accessible French dining that still makes guests feel as though they’re dining in a restaurant far further up the price ladder. Whilst the food at this Sloane Square restaurant is of top quality and the surroundings are elegant, the team manage to make the whole experience feel tailored to you. Côte Brasserie in Chelsea is proof that a restaurant does not have to be independent to make you feel special.
All-day dining is the way at Côte Brasserie, hence this London restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whatever time of day there are traditional French classics as well region-specific dishes that will keep your buds in a pleasant state of anticipation, so begin your day perhaps with a complete French breakfast or croque monsieur or madame. For a light lunch, why not try salmon fishcakes with a baby spinach salad? Or for dinner, a classic beef Bourguignon or roasted belly of pork. A short walk from Sloane Square tube station in Chelsea, there’s little not to love about Côte.
Everything about this restaurant was excellent. The staff were helpful and attentive, the food was delicious, there was a great buzz about the restaurant and the price was amazing- £33 each for a 3 course meal with wine and coffee. Will definitely use again and recommend to friends.
Very busy, and very professional. It's loud and buzzy and the food is great. Our American friends loved it... could only be improved by martinis being available...
Consistently welcoming , warm , friendly and efficient service . Good check back on customer satisfaction and whether any additionals are required. Food is reliable and of decent quality with a menu which covers most tastes , backed up by willingness to substitute. If requested. Always an enjoyable and safe choice .
We had a lovely table right by the open window - service was impeccable, food delicious, gluten-free confidence foolproof. The restaurant is not peaceful - but where is anymore?!
Meal was absolutely delicious. The service speedy, attentive but unobtrusive. I go back time and time again because of this consistency. This Friday, I took guests for their first time and it didn’t fail. The value is good as well. I recommend the Crab Mayonnaise, the Fish Cakes, the current Sea Bass on the set menu, caramelised Carrots and the Dauphinois (ask them to ensure it is creamy), the Crepes, The Tartin and the Crete Caramel is the BEST around My long running issue with all Cote Brasserie restaurants is the continual HUM of based tone incomprehensible MUSAC. It is so intrusive to hear that THUMP THUMP THUMP continually in the background. It sounds as if the record is stuck. No discerning, identifiable tune or lyric can be heard other than this dim noise that really mars with what would otherwise be perfect experience. I mention this to every manager in every Cote as I dine there most days and they will reduce the volume but, in this day and age, it really is unnecessary. Please either provide something that is clear or nothing at all Other than this, it is the best value restaurant and I would highly recommend
The food and service were executed just right at the right price not always an easy task. For example, the poached egg in the egg Florentine should have been runny it was - thus cooked just right. Not always an easy task in a large and busy restaurant. The Chicken dish provided another good example as the Chicken breast was nice and moist and tender. The accompanied sautéed potatoes were crisp and not over-cooked. Again not always easy !! Finally the Apple crumble was presented in its own petite cast iron dish and delivered on flavour and texture. This was taken from the daily set menu thus was good value for money. Are you listening the more expensive eateries that don't always deliver !!!!!!! Having come to London to go to the Royal Court Theatre this was a great lunch rounded off by a great production. Is this replicated across the range of Cote I do not know but would be willing to find out and I would be happy take up the baton of a un-bias customer don't hesitate to ask - email@example.com I await your invitation !!
I arrived at 5.30 in the evening, feeling rather stressed, and waited 10 minutes for my young cousin to join me. By the time she arrived I felt far less stressed, mainly because of the pleasant atmosphere and the friendly welcome of the staff. We both enjoyed our dinner - spinach salad, mushroom risotto, thin steak [can't remember what it's called], and the chocolate pudding with creme fraiche. The Merlot was an excellent accompaniment. I am rather lame; so greatly appreciated two staff members opening the doors and seeing me to the lift so that I could go downstairs to the loo. The waiter who served us was unfailingly cheerful and helpful. Altogether full marks. The Cote is ideally located on the north side of Sloane Square. The food is great.
A pre-theatre dinner before 'Road' at the Royal Court (opposite) was exceptional in both the range of choice and the value offered at the price point (£13.95 for 3 courses). My companion and I ordered different choices and all six dishes came out in a timely fashion and were pleasingly good quality, as was the wine 'special of the month'. Presentation was clean and simple and wait staff attentive and helpful. The only complaint would be from my native Italian dining companion who pronounced his Espresso after the meal both overly large ("this is a Lungo, not an Espresso")and burnt. I would definitely return here as I don't drink coffee and my Earl Grey tea was just lovely, but I wouldn't be able to recommend it for coffee...
This restaurant is always busy. It operates to a formula with a fixed price menu according to whether 2 or 3 courses are chosen, and a wider menu from which individual dishes may be chosen. The menus change every month. The style is that of a traditional French restaurant (including proper napkins), and the dishes are selected, cooked and served appropriately by a multi-national staff (many Italians at this branch of the chain). The starters are often notably inventive for a low-priced menu, always including some soup or salad dish. Lately there has been a particularly successful crème Du Barry (cauliflower soup) on the fixed price menu. The Breton fish stew I had on Sunday from the wider menu was delicious and amazing value.
First time there and surpassed our expectations completely with lovely customer service and friendly staff who made us feel very much at home. The food was delicious with a very appetising menu to choose from and at such great value. Will return without any hesitation but remember to make a reservation because it was very busy and we noticed there had been some disapointed customers who tried to get a table on walking in, and despite the staff doing there best, it couldn't be helped and left people frustrated without a table to sit down too. Aside from that a very well run and lovely brasserie. Thank you again for giving my wife and I a day to remember.
