Having just arrived in Richmond for the first time we were unsure where to eat. Having walked down Richmond Hill from our hotel this restaurant was the first to appeal to us. We were warmly welcomed & we were so pleased we arrived when we did as it started to fill up very quickly. Staff were attentive, food was excellent... More

This is a nice place for some french food and is reasonably priced. We were provided with a table as soon as we walked in on a Saturday afternoon and the service was good overall.

Fortunate enough to have eaten at a few Cote restaurants. Richmond experience was by far the worst. The queue to be checked in and taken to table was so long at first we waited outside the bistro. It was a 10 minute wait to get to table (despite booking for 6.45pm). We had been in the restaurant for 25 minutes... More

we had our anniversary dinner on Wednesday 8th Feb. We sat upstairs which was lovely - less crowded and less noisy! Food was delicious. However what made the evening so special was our exceptional waiter (I don't know his name) He was warm, considerate, generous and fun. We will be back for sure!

We like the Cote brand, have visited several venues and have always been completely satisfied with food, service and ambience. This latest visit was no exception, and to say that is a major compliment, as the occasion was Saturday lunch prior to a rugby international at Twickenham, so the restaurant was at absolutely full stretch, with plenty potential for standards...

We would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic meal or just a family or friends get together. The food,service and atmosphere were all very good. That and really great value for money. Parking can be a little difficult though.

As always nice food but this time we sat at the front of the restaurant near the entrance. The staff were totally oblivious to the customers sitting near the bar where they make coffee. Whacking the hell out of the gadget that has coffee grains can go right through you all evening. When I told the waitress she just thought... More

All Cote restaurants offer good food at reasonable prices, but the Richmond branch is a cut above the rest.

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.
