If you’d like to treat yourself to an enchanting meal at Côte Brasserie, be sure to reserve your table well in advance.
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.
We usually enjoy visiting the St. Martin's Lane branch of Côte and this occasion was no exception. We were earlier than usual and, therefore, able to take advantage of the excellent pre-theatre menu which offers a good selection of starters, mains and desserts for £13.95. Our food was all cooked to perfection and washed down with a good value Bordeaux red wine. Service was excellent and we couldn't fault anything during the evening.
Nice restaurant and the food was amazing although service was a little slow before the cooking times for a steak was explained to us by the waiter,some fraught lager or larger bottles which were actually cold would also be nice. We had a lot of confusion over which restaurant we had booked as 2 within 2 minutes of each other, both state “covent Garden” in the description - an over all pleasant visit
Great food and great service. We both had something from the Specials menu: my hubby had the Lamb with roasted fennel and I the Duck Confit. He asked for the lamb to be rare and it was beautifully tender. My confit was up to French standards...although the salardaise potatoes could have done with a bit more garlic, but that might just be my preference. Will definitely try other branches around the country now.
