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.
Cote Sloane Square is consistently good. The menu in particular is suited to everyone, everyone's available time for dining (ie pre-theatre set menu) and tastes or requirements. I go there at least once a month for one of the usual meal times and am rarely disappointed. If you are going to a show at 7:30 at the nearby Cadogan Hall or the Theatre, it is advisable to book in advance as the restaurant is very busy, and the staff always try to please. They are amazing.
Good value for good food. Service was excellent and attentive. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. Cote in Sloane Square is very convenient when shopping in King’s Road.
Nice food, very friendly people, especially the lady serving us! Love Cote, always plenty choice on menu and theatre menu. Vegetarian options could be better though.
A lovely meal and experience at Cote tonight. Great Service and great atmosphere. I booked a table for 7pm. There was plenty of time and space to enjoy a lovely evening with my daughter.
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 !!
Casual dinner on Saturday night I booked Cote for dinner after a show at Cadogan Hall around the corner. Service was good; our table was prepared when we arrived and staff were attentive taking our drinks order and providing table water. Two in our group ordered the daily menu special which came with a glass of champagne each and this was slow to arrive though. Food was above my expectations. I had mussels which were as good as if I had been at the seaside. The salad was a generous size portion, which is always good to find. Other people in my party enjoyed their mains too (steak, duck, pork belly) and the desserts that followed were of the same standard. I'm not giving this the full 6 stars because our table was near the door and also the passage leading to the WC - this door was very noisy each time it was opened and closed. In addition somewhere in the restaurant a metal tray was dropped a couple of times during dinner which created a very noisy clang - normally would be fine but when a member of your group has slight hearing problems these things do make a difference. Would revisit again and booking was very easy via the website.
We arrived early and as usual the restaurant was buzzing with business. We were asked whether we minded waiting next door in the Sloane Hotel reception. Warmth and comfort: why would we mind!? We were fetched five minutes or so later. The service and the meal were, as usual, perfect for all of us (6) and the variety of dishes all arrived on time and hot. Thank you to all the staff. The only thing that does miff me is the quandoo site that does not allow for editing one's reservation. The only choice is cancellation; please update your site and become more user friendly so that at least a customer can alter the numbers in the party without disturbing the already busy staff by 'phoning them. Thank you.
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.
