Côte Brasserie - Oxford
Cote is always a very reliable option and it didn't let us down this time. The warm welcome at the door, followed by the very professional way the staff work means that you feel very well looked after. The food was reasonably priced, very tasty and very nicely presented. A guaranteed experience every time.
After tried the 19.95 3-courses meal, we tried the 14.95 3-courses meal this time. It is a super deal for the quality with this price. The steak is okay but a bit over cook this time. My wife loves the cauliflower soup more than the onions soup last time. But still less salty would be better. Still no complaints on the dessert and the service is still great.
This is my first time dining at Côte. The service and food are good. Their early evening set up till 7pm, which is 1 hour later than some other restaurants. I found it is always a good try to take this for a first time visit.
Anyway, my wife and I have a great evening.
Some major items of the main menu were not available, seems they ran out, but the filet and related dishes were out, which is unusual
The Open Table booking did not work so, when we arrived, there was no booking. The manager at Cote was very good, however, and managed to find us a table despite the restaurant being busy. The service was excellent and the food very good indeed. Overall, a very pleasant dinner.
We get consistently good food at Cote in Oxford. There are a good variety of choices, from the good value set menus to a wide a la carte choice. Manager was very good at checking my wife's food allergy. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was served promptly, even though the restaurant was full. Very enjoyable.
