It’s without any wonder that Côte Brasserie has become the huge success it is today.

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.
Very successful and everyone enjoyed their food.. only problem was the bill. I had asked if we could pay separately but when the bill came it was for all 10. Each worked our what they owed (but some items were very strange on the bill.. i.e. £1.+ for puddings whereas several were on the two course meal so should not be charged extra).... and we had each put in a tip, but the total money collected only came to the bill total. Presume the service charge had already been added. The waitress was brilliant.
We booked for a table of 8 of us to have lunch today, and although the restaurant was very busy, we had brilliant service from all the staff : ) Food was served hot and tasted delicious. Only drawbacks were that we had to pre-order (didn't realise this when we first booked) and that the vegetarian options on the Christmas menu were so limited - so some of us arranged to pre-order from the vegetarian menu instead. Great crackers with some useable novelties inside and vouchers for a free bottle of wine in January!
The reception and service were very good. The menu choice was fine. Speed was right. The food served was very good. I should be happy to return and also to recommend the restuarant. However I must comment that the room was very noisy and if that number of diners is to be accommodated decently the low ceiling needs to be treated to absorb noise. One expects a happy buzz in a decent restaurant but one does not expect to have difficulty in hearing people at the same table because of the general noise level.
