    I had a fantastic first-ish date with my partner. It was a very elegant dining experience in which the staff suited our requests to better serve us and improve our experience. Food was Top-Notch, service was excellent, and the experience was unforgettable/

    Dessert and drinks probably saved the night. My partner and I ordered French onion soup and the crab maison for starters - both of which lacked flavour. We then ordered the lamb for mains, slightly underdone and the confit pork belly which was fairly chewy. However, the pear and frangipane tart was the star of the show and saved our dinner. Unfortunately, we came out the next morning with upset stomachs, very likely from our dinner. Glad we tried it, but wouldn’t rush back.

    Appreciate restaurant was busy with Christmas parties, but the food was sub standard, could tell the soup was reheated in a microwave as had thick skin around the edges and the side of vegetables were dry and withered. The beef bourgignon was luke warm and a very small portion. The person who brought the food to the table literally threw it at us. Not the service that I have previously experienced at other branches of Cote. Very disappointing.

    Even though I had rung ahead to book a table just for coffee at 11.30 and to ask that my 90 year old mother would need a table rather than a bar stool , there was dispute . I received a lecture from the front desk even though I explained I had been given permission to have a table on the grounds of old age! Very embarrassing and not at all necessary

    Impeccable service, seated immediately, served quickly, food cooked exactly as expected and tasted divine. Restaurant was immaculate, toilets akin to a hotel.perfect set up to a wonderful evening. Just keen to know how the outdoor wall of plants is constructed as we want to recreate it in our garden. Any ideas??

    We booked a table for 6pm on Friday 5th May, restaurant was not overly busy. Waiting staff were friendly and the location lovely. However although our food order was taken quickly our starters did not arrive for an hour and then it was another 25 minutes before our main course arrived, sadly no time for dessert as we were off to a concert. When the food did arrive it was nicely presented and delicious. I'm not sure if there was a problem in the kitchen, but would suggest the restaurant cut down on the number of menu options (we were given 3 different menus!) if they can't get food out in a timely manner! Sadly we won't return in a hurry.

    A lovely position in the mailbox, by the canalside. A warm welcome, lovely ambiance and exceptional service, especially Petra, Noa and Laura. The food was delicious and as I am gluten intolerant I found the choices for gf excellent. The kitchen is also nut free, so for nut allergy sufferers thus is a winner. All in all a lovely dining experience.

    We have been visiting Cote around the country for years and always liked the place and the food. The last 2 times though we felt the price had gone up and the quality down. The Birmingham staff are always excellent! Last time though the Bretton chicken was dry and small. The tiny pot of chips mean and the extra charge mushroom sauce very poor. We will leave it a while before returning.
