Super evening. Attentive but not over zealous service. Lovely atmosphere - as always. Enjoyed the upstairs experience. Think it was good value. 3 courses of the al a carte menu plus a bottle of wine for 2 was just over 100 including service charge. Happy with that.

Lovely food and efficient service chicken liver pate and the rib eye steak was lovely though we should have said medium rare not just medium though it was lush

Warmly welcomed on arrival and received excellent service throughout. We were a little slow choosing from the menu but this wasn't a problem and staff were happy to give us time despite it being a busy Friday night. Once ordered we didn't have to wait long for starters, 3 x crab mayonnaise and 1 x chicken pate. Were given a reasonable time between courses. All our meals were absolutely delicious and plentiful; only one of our party managed to finish his main and no one had room for pud. The restaurant was buzzing but there was an air of calm. Staff all seemed to get on well and were attentive without being intrusive. It was a cold and frosty night outside but the temperature and ambience inside were just right. Thanks for another enjoyable evening. Would recommend.

I was dining with a very elderly frail aunt, who sadly didn't like the lightly seared tuna nicoise, which I adore! She asked our delightful waiter if she could have it well cooked and he arranged for this. He was an extremely pleasant and accommodating waiter, and it is remiss of me to not have remembered his name- to be honest i was engrossed in trying to hear my aunts conversation, as it was very busy ( and she should have a hearing aid but refuses!). Overall I can highly commend Cote in Farnham for their excellent and receptive staff and being so very well catered for, for a Sunday lunch and on a particularly hot day! In fact in addition, we had a table outside which was lovely with canopy. Many thanks

The food was absolutely delicious- just wish we had a bigger capacity! We all had different starters, each tried by all and so we determined to return for them alone. Some of us had Escaloppe de veau and the other had the poussin with mushroom sauce - fabulous. Two squeezed in a pud - making the others jealous. The only thing that spoiled it was a table near us with a bunch of very loud, raucous rugby types - having a good time and not aggressive but we couldn't hear each other speak. It would have been kind if the maire d' had had a quiet word along the lines of 'glad you are having a great time but remember the other guests are not part of your party'. several tables around us had people grimacing when the noise got really burdensonme. however, we will go back.....

Restaurant was very busy being Mothers Day weekend and we had booked a table for 7, including two very elderly people... one having just had a hip replacement at 90 year old. The restaurant staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious as always, only slight hiccup was the delay in food arriving because of an issue in the kitchen. However, we were very quickly given an extra bottle of wine and the service charge removed from our bill for our 'longer than normal' wait. Note: we have been to this restaurant many times before and food ihas always delivered quickly so for us, this was a one off and handled with excellent customer care.

A friend and I had lunch at your restaurant today and had a very pleasant experience. We were both very happy to receive our free glass of Kir Royal as we both needed cheering up! Since we came just for a light lunch we both had a delicious starter each ie egg Benedict and artichokes in a delicious sauce. We felt embarrassed not to order a full meal, but since we were both entertaining guests in the evening, we didn't want to eat much. The staff said that was not at all a problem! Staff was nice, professional and efficient. We will be back! Mrs Jackson and friend

Cote is one of my favourite restaurants because the food is consistently good and the waiting staff are always so pleasant and efficient. I think Cote must invest heavily in its staff training and it makes all the difference to the customer experience. Normally I would object to a service charge being added to the bill but I never object to Cote doing this because their offering is so good. Today was no exception. I had pre-booked and we had a choice of tables as it wasn't too busy. Service was prompt and efficient and the food - from the £10.95 menu - was excellent. We'll be back.
