We have visited Cote many times, sometimes for a light lunch and also for some very tasty dinners there too including a lovely candlelit Valentine's meal. The food is great and the decor is warm and welcoming.

Visited as a Mother's Day treat with the kids, there were a number of families in and the staff were welcoming of all. Found it excellent value for the 4 of us with good sized portions. We were left to enjoy the meal at a leisurely pace, food was delicious, particularly the poached eggs on sourdough bread. My one tiny... More

Booked online easily. Welcomed and ushered to our table with a nice smile. The service and attention of the staff were superb. The food was excellent with south France influence. The only problem was the cold draft at our table. Did not complain maybe should have. Nevertheless an excellent restaurant to have in our lovely St Albans.

Came here for dinner with a friend a few days ago and had a lovely meal. The restaurant itself was bright, clean and well laid out. All the servers were friendly, polite, attentive and professional. The menu had a good selection on offer and there were also specials available. We decided to skip the starters (lovely as they looked) in... More

Attended a leaving do, 20 plus people last week. Arrived 18.30 hours left after 22.15 hours. Appalling service, slow and disorganised but when the food arrived it was hot and delicious. The early menu is good value for money. However, I urge that they get more staff! Cecilia and Steve.

The food here was fine - nothing particularly special really. Just handy for a meal before a show at the Arena. What we were struck by tho was how cold it felt. Not just in temperature but in atmosphere too. I don't think I'd go back as there are other places to eat nearby.

Our inspiration for the food and design of Cote is a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros of Paris. Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities.
Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly
