Great quality cooking with friendly prompt service at St pauls branch. I would recommend to visit. We also saw a new prestige menu which we didn't try this time however it had the dessert we like on it.

Attentive staff and very good choice of food from a number of different menus. Creme caramel is delicious. House wine is enjoyable and plentiful supply of tap water.

Received a Great, Warm welcome from the staff when I attended here for Lunch. The choice as usual is very difficult to choose from as all the food from Cote is very tempting and tasty . We decided on the Lamb chops Special which was amazing, however could do without the Roquefort butter in my opinion, which was too strong and overpowering that it masked the taste of the Perfectly cooked lamb chops. For dessert we had the Profiteroles which was filled with ice cream and was absolutely delicious and the Coupe Noir, our Cote favourite. We were served by members of the management team and our waitress, Nalia. Good service from all as usual, however Nalia, noticed that my guest dropped a napkin on the floor, and immediately replaced it with a fresh one, going beyond normal expectations. It was my first time at this branch and will definitely be returning for more.

Perfection from start to finish. Nice friendly welcome and given a choice of seats. We had Breton fish stew which was deemed absolutely gorgeous, filled with clams, mussels, squid, vegetables, with sea beam on the top and in a fabulous liquid, this dish was being raved over. We also had belly pork, which again was a very good choice, nice size portion on a bed of cabbage, vegetables and a calvados sauce, it also came with gratin potatoes Both dishes were bigger than we expected and much tastier than we thought they would be We shared a Chocolate fondant with ice cream for afters and it was a good choice The only thing we would have liked was draft Lager rather than just bottles The service throughout was excellent from the friendly professional staff All in all we enjoyed our visit very much and will return

French restaurants are pretty expensive in the USA so we have been visiting Cote for nearly 5 years whenever we have been in London. The food is consistently good. During our 2 weeks stay we went to this place 3 times, twice for dinner, once for lunch. we had the same waiter, a very nice guy. Everything worked perfectly, the staff was nice, we enjoyed the duck confit as well as the fish dishes. The free water would be standard in the USA but rare in the UK. At Cote we got unlimited chilled water. At one visit the staff even entertained our friend 3 year old daughter. We would be happy to return.

This was an on boarding lunch with a new recruit and it was a great place to have it. The food was excellent, the staff seated us in a booth which was relatively quiet and made it easy to talk. I advised the waiter we would need quick service which I got the impression he took a little bit of offence at, but it was not intended that way, I just knew I had to get my lunch companion back to the office by a certain time. That said, the service was superb and we even had time for a delicious fresh mint tea at the end. All in all a professional and congenial atmosphere, delicious food, great service. I will be back.

My brother and I went for a meal after going to a matinee on Thursday afternoon @ Wiltons music hall, knowing the restaurant would be busy because of the Christmas period we pre booked a table for 6.00pm. Despite the fact the restaurant was extremely busy, the waiting staff were extremely attentive, the food and service was up to the excellent standard I have come to expect from cote. As it is Christmas week we dined al a carte and pushed the boat out with a bottle of fizz as well a very pleasant end to a fabulous day

We had lunch in Cote. The manager Dan is very professional, customer focused and friendly as was our fabulous waiter. I had the Herb Roasted Chicken Supreme (herb roasted chicken supreme wrapped in French streaky bacon, served with Jerusalem artichokes and a creamy mustard sauce) and my colleagues both had the Fish Parmentier (Cod, haddock, prawn and salmon in a creamy white wine and leek sauce, topped with mash potato and Gruyère cheese) both meals were absolutely delicious and would highly recommend a visit to the St Paul's branch of Cote. 10/10 for both quality of food and service!
