Description: Our restaurant offers contemporary Mediterranean cuisine, with a fusion of the great cuisine of the area: French cuisine, Italian cuisine, Spanish cuisine, with hints also of Africa and the Middle East. Our chefs have created a menu that draws inspiration from the tradition of the countries bathed by the Mediterranean, adding the creativity of today's habits, with an eye for attention to those who live in Miami and its surroundings.

Since our last visit to Cote Gourmet, ownership has just recently changed, but the experience has remained a most positive one.
Despite some unexpected snafus (which were handled beautifully), the meal that was presented was amazing. From looking at the fixed price menu we assumed we would be making choices from each category. Instead, we were presented with beautifully prepared small plates of each: poached egg on a fondue "bed," real foie gras with embellishments, real truffled pasta, and a special "good luck" dish for the new year. In addition there were elegant portions of three housemade desserts, ending with a perfect, light ice cream with a fruit coulis.
The service was warm and friendly without being intrusive and the staff was obviously anxious that we should enjoy both the food and the experience.
If this is any indication of the quality of the experience we will certain continue our regular attendance.

Great French food, intimate setting in and even better location. Can't miss in Miami Shores. Quiet and private in the middle of the village setting. Eat inside or out.

This IS Miami's hidden gem! Very romantic typical French restaurant. I only wish I ate here more often. Everything is is well done and the service is great because there is nowhere for a lazy wit staff to hide. I don't know how they stay in business because Miami Shores City Hall is such a horrific group of Natzis when it comes down to small businesses. That's another story. But I don't know how they stay in business because the place is hidden, very quiet, and they seldom advertise. But go when you can and forget your life for a few hours.

I'm here for lunch with a friend of mine. I was not disappointed at all. The food was not only delicious but beautifully presented. That Miss fear was very elegant and the prices, quite reasonable. If you are interested in a true French style dining in an elegant environment at an affordable price, this is a place for you

This was a second trip to Cote having been there three or four years ago with family. Maybe we were too early. We made a reservation at 6 pm and were alone until an hour later when others showed up. Some of the food items weren't ready and the staff was setting up tables during most of our visit. The food was very tasty and the pricing was reasonable but I would not go there early again. It was strange that a French restaurant has no wine list. Remember to take your on bottle.
