Cote - Islington
Good restaurant for a quick lunchI work close by and Cote is the perfect place for my lunch break. i sat by the window so i could see Islington green just steps away. Their Set menu is very good value for money, 2 courses for £9.95!! The manager pointed out that the set menu changes every two weeks so i guess i won't get bored coming here on a regular base. The service is attentive and friendly and the food is good. thanks Cote!10/04/2013 00:00:00Our second meal at Cote IslingtonOur second meal at Cote Islington was almost as excellent as our first one had been a few months ago. There were 3 instead of 4 this time. I had the most delicious mussels, done with a cream sauce, and they were the best I have ever had at a Cote restaurant but my salad nicoise was not up to the usual standard. My companions had calamari which was too much as a starter so one took half home in a doggy bag; their steak and frites main course was average. Creme brulee was up to standard as was the wine, tea and coffee. Service was excellent as usual as was ambience.06/04/2013 00:00:00The service was superb asThe service was superb as was the food. The atmosphere was relaxed and was a great venue for a leisurely lunch.29/03/2013 00:00:00I always enjoy eating here.I always enjoy eating here. The food is fresh with a great deal of choice, service is polite and attentive and their restaurants are always very clean. I've taken both friends and family here and they always enjoy themselves.
Thank you once again Cote.26/03/2013 00:00:00Valentines nightBooked the restaraunt through top table , I had a duck board for starter with beef bourguignon both were lovely , my girlfriend had crab mayonnaise with duck cassoulet , again both we're very good , would definately recommend this restaraunt . I'm sure we will be returning and making this our French restaraunt of choice14/02/2013 00:00:00Yum yumI took my 2 children to Cote in London. I had cassoulet and they chose a meal from the kids menu. Service was attentive and the bill reasonable.26/01/2013 00:00:00Thank you Cote!Having been here many times, we were disappointed to discover that the wonderful toptable deal is no longer (please bring it back!) however the staff kindly gave is a great deal when we asked. We both had the steak which was gorgeous, the moules as ever a speciality here, and the hazelnut crepe rich enough for two to share. Cote is a favourite.21/01/2013 16:00:00Quick, convenient, good value foodQuick, convenient, good value food. Service friendly20/01/2013 16:00:00Yum yumWe ate at Cote in Islington. I had calamari followed by salmon. My son had chicken. The food was great and the service attentive. The bill came to around £35 which we thought was reasonable.11/01/2013 00:00:00Cote did it again!A regular haunt for me. Unfortunately the fabulous toptable deal is no more, let's hope they bring it back. Delicious cooking, perfect location on Islington Green, my favourite butterfy chicken in white wine and mushroom sauce, and wonderful crepes. Thank you Cote!07/12/2012 16:00:00Yum yumWe had a great meal at Cote in London. I chose the fish cakes and my son had fish fingers and chips. It was great value at £20 for the two of us. Service was attentive too.24/11/2012 00:00:00Cote IslingtonOnly really booked because they were on TopTable, I do use my nearest Cote in Richmond but wish they were on here would use them more.
As you expect from this chain, great value and reliable end pleasant food experience, staff always very efficient, nice location. Pre theatre meal always leaves us with time to spare. They are always busy which tells you everything!!27/10/2012 00:00:00Good Restaurant - good foodGood Restaurant - good food and service. Very friendly staff and would recommend.26/10/2012 16:00:00Great chainHaving first discovered Cote outside central London It was good to discover other branches more locally. It is difficult to get into Cote without a prior booking and apparently remains so. The turn around time for tables is amazingly fast, no doubt due to the careful service which was much appreciated. Probably the most striking feature of this good food is its value for money. Single Malt whiskey aperitifs were large and saw us through the meal togrther with a bottle of water. Starters of soup and slightly over salty crab were big enough to make us skip puddings. The steaks, Sirloin and Fillet were truly melt in the mouth, happily followed by a reasonble bill.26/10/2012 00:00:00Cote never fails to disappoint.Cote never fails to disappoint. Excellent value for money and the best fillet steak in town.21/10/2012 00:00:00Great value when booking onGreat value when booking on the top table deal. Food was very good and service was great as well.16/10/2012 00:00:00Too many childrenAmazing restaurant with very attentive service. However, we will not be returning at lunchtime! The restaurant was full of kids and it kind of ruined our experience. I can imagine the place being quite lovely in the evening though- nice interior, good and reasonably priced food and lovely waiting staff.13/10/2012 00:00:00Yummy breakfastI have been numerous times for the delicious breakfasts on offer at Cote. Sitting on a Sunday morning with newspaper to hand and a delectable Croque Madame is just pure bliss. A must!!!07/10/2012 00:00:00Excellent dining experienceWe took advantage of the Top Table special offer of 50% off the a la carte menu, and this was excellent value. The service was superb, efficient, friendly and not overbearing. The cuisine is authentically provincial French, with a wide-ranging menu and comprehensive wine list. Highly recommended.28/09/2012 00:00:00Cote just keeps better! TheCote just keeps better! The consistency of this establishment never ceases to impress. The mussels are excellent quality, the steaks velvety and the service is just the right amount of attention without hovering over you. Have been on the toptable deal a few times now and it represents great value. Only one thing - can we have some differntdesserts please? Would appreciate some more variety! Many thanks again21/09/2012 16:00:00I love Cote! This was a spurI love Cote! This was a spur of the moment booking, as we were just meeting for coffee, and lingered here so long we decided to book a table. Cote still gave us the toptable deal right there and then which was kind. My companion loved her soup and I had the chicken which I have wanted to try for a long time - comforting and delicious! Her main course unfortunately had to be returned as it was inadequately cooked - however they wiped the cost and provided desserts for free. Definitely took out comments seriously and proves how rarely they have problems with their food. Will definitely return as the consistency of their quality is first class and I have been many times.15/09/2012 16:00:00Nice FoodVery good food but we used a 50% voiucher and this made it cheap15/09/2012 00:00:00Superb valueThe 50% deal makess this place pretty unbeatable for value in the area.14/09/2012 16:00:00Good value, good serviceNice for dinner or lunch with friends. Good location, good service and a simple menu which is cooked well and gives you waht it says on the tin. Good value with or without a deal.13/09/2012 16:00:00Summer evening in Islington GreenWhat a beautiful evening and a superb meal at Cote! After a long Olympic season of overindulgence and expensive tickets, we wanted to keep things under control and still unwind after a long working week. The toptable deal at Cote was just the ticket, we could enjoy superb mussels, duck breast and dark chocolate mousse, washed down with Kir Royale, for around £16! Incredible value, we sat by the open window and watched all of Islington go by, and the sun go down, while enjoying a private conversation yet feeling we were in the thick of it all. Thank you Cote.06/09/2012 16:00:00second visit. Loved it evensecond visit. Loved it even more. The service is really something. Informed smart waiters and waitresses, not too pushy but there when you need them. And our food delicious. For a chain they really seem to have got it right and the Too Table discount makes it very attractive indeed. One word though. When I went to the one in Camden Town I found the food a little less impressive. Not sure if each chef makes a difference. But we will go back to Islington again certainly .05/09/2012 00:00:00Cote Islington - Very Good PlaceCote Islington was a very good overall restaurant.02/09/2012 00:00:00Patience is a virtue.We thouroughly enjoyed our lunch at Cote restaurant. We started with a generous Kir Royale and our shared starter of salmon was a delight. The mains were also up to the same standard and extremely good value with the Toptable half price offer. Above all, the patience of the staff who helped us was infinite as we were not the most decisive of customers!29/08/2012 16:00:00a real discoveryFirst time to this new little chain and very impressed. The menu was big and varied, the service was fantastic - attentive friendly and really on t he ball and given the special offer we made a mental note to come back soon. Recommended.24/08/2012 00:00:00Surprisingly good with theSurprisingly good with the 50% discount offer. The qaulity of food and service is excellent. I was pleasantly surprised and as it is down the road from me I shall certainly be going more often.21/08/2012 00:00:00BrilliantWe came here on Sat night on the 50% off deal and it was excellent. Pissaladiere between us for entree and then rib eye for my girlfriend and I had the breton half chicken. both perfect. excellent service and the french cider is great !!! highly recommend this place even without the discount but incredible value using it. looking forward to going back soon.17/08/2012 16:00:00Cote is fantasticI've always had fantastic food and service at every Cote we've been to. My fillet steak was amazing - and the half price food offer incredible. The crab salad was delicious.
The service is excellent - and it's always a good sign to see the waiters smiling and laughing among themselves. This Angel restaurant is run very very well run.
One point - give your waiter the tip in CASH. If you put it on your card they don't apparently get it.07/08/2012 00:00:00
