It’s without any wonder that Côte Brasserie has become the huge success it is today. With a reputation that’s known both in London and throughout the UK, Côte Brasserie has consistently earned the highest marks in presentation, taste and service since the restaurant’s establishment back in 2007.

The offerings at Côte Brasserie on Covent Garden’s St Martin’s Lane are classically French, ranging from hearty favourites like beef bourguignon to seafood specialities including mussels with white wine sauce. We recommend beginning with Côte Brasserie’s tuna carpaccio before diving into mains like the seasonal rump of lamb with Jersey Royal potatoes, English asparagus and mint Hollandaise. If you like a good cut of beef, you can’t go wrong with their 30-day aged 10oz rib-eye cooked to perfection with a side of bearnaise sauce or roquefort butter. Open for breakfast every day of the week and also offering a variety of fantastic desserts, Côte Brasserie sets the stage for any occasion – let yourself be whisked away from London to France at this charming Covent Garden brasserie.
This is our go to restaurant when visiting London theatres. We had the set three course meal which, as always, was well presented and with plenty of choice at a very good price for London. The staff are welcoming and attentive without being obtrusive and a lovely buzz in the restaurant makes for a very pleasant meal. I would recommend that you book for pre and after theatre as it is very busy and we saw many people turned away who did not have a reservation. Highly recommended - you will not be disappointed.
Lovely food, good atmosphere and centrally located for West End theatres. Staff were friendly and helpful and as we had theatre tickets were quick to serve us. The only complaint is that when I went to the toilet on 2 occasions, the first being when we arrived, 2 toilets had no toilet paper. I informed a staff member there was no toilet paper and she said she would deal with this. I went to the toilet just before we left over an hour later and there was still no toilet paper in the 2 toilets. I informed the same staff member there was still no toilet paper and she apologised for this.
Quick lunch to catch up with an old friend. Pretty standard brasserie menu, but I knew that, and it was fine. Lunch special good value. Strtaer of Frisée aux lardons small (but perfectly formed) and the poached egg was just right, so had been done to order not kept hanging around. Steak billed as 'pink' and it was . Service mostly attentive (Had to ask twice for mustard). WIne list ok for both range and price (at the bottom end). It was quite busy thus somewhat noisy and the tables are quite close. Maybe not the venue for a quiet lunch or a business conversation. Or you just pick a better time.
