£25 and under
French
The inspiration for the fuss-free French food and the stylish interior comes from the traditional bistros of Paris. The emphasis is on simply, reasonably priced dishes and the menu includes familiar Gallic favourites like moules marinières, steak frites with skinny frites, duck confit and the Côte dessert speciality, crème caramel. Côte is ideal for a quick business lunch, mid-week dinners with friends, and pre-theatre meals. We guarantee you’ll come back time after time.

    Service was prompt and friendly and we were given a good table upstairs The steak frites was tasty but could have done with a bit more garnish but was also good value

    Disappointed the set menu wasn’t available, this wasn’t obvious on your website. Service was polite but slow. Main meal arrived without full side dishes and we had to chase up. Waiter did not explain or apologise for delay. One of the meals was Luke warm. Food was nice but expected better standard of service for the money.

    Brilliant restaurant with utterly delicious food and bustling atmosphere. Staff are professional, friendly and work in an extremely timely and accommodating manner. Further, the wine selection is extensive, reasonably priced (as is the food), and, also, delicious. I would recommend Côte to anyone and will definitely be back!

    Pre booked and was warmly welcomed by Nicola. She was really excellent, I was on my own and she made me feel very comfortable. Service was super efficient from her with good warmth. I had the tuna which was absolutely beautiful. The only reason for the lower star was the last part where I asked the manager (my server was busy) for the bill. He was quite brusque in comparison to the team members. It was a fairly functional ending to what had been very good to that point. I felt like I had inconvenienced him.

    Steak tough and too peppery. Not as I remember from previous occasions. Coffee good. The sound of bottles crashing into bin drowned out our conversation at times especially the ones that shattered on the steps. Waitress untidy and unkempt looking Will not return.

    It was good, the food is always great and good value. Except the saucisson, they seem to believe the stuff is priced at roughly the equivalent of gold and give you 8 wafer thin slices for 4 pounds. Other than that, brilliant!

    Food was very good, good service also. The only downside to our experience was the restaurant itself was incredibly cold. So cold that my partner sat with a jacket on until starters arrived.

    Our meal was let down by some really poor service. Firstly it was a really cold day and we had to keep shutting the main door behind leavers as our table was right near the door. When our mains arrived I noticed that my partners main was wrong and it had been brought to the table whilst she was at the restroom. Her meal was taken away and mine left at the table. When I had asked for mine to go back also as we are eating together. I have doubt that my steak sat under a heat lamp for the 6minutes to cook my partners steak was being made. The overall service was poor at no point was I asked how my meal was throughout our 3 courses and it was the service that let down this lunch. I have visited many cote Brasseries in Glasgow and London so I was expecting much better service as I have received in the past at other locations. Further more the Bill arrived and I was really disappointed to see that an automatic service charge was applied to our meal which makes sense why the staff are not attentive as they are already receiving service charge and not having to work for the Tip.

    It's a very pleasant building at the quiet end of Frederick Street. The staff are considerate and helpful. The food is good: I particularly liked the sourdough bread and the meat (pork tenderloin for me and chicken for my companion) was tasty and well cooked.
