Our food and wine were spectacular. The ambiance was great and top it all off our server Lucy was an absolute pleasure. We received such a high level of service. Big thanks to Lucy!

Last night we went to the symphony hall for the first concert of the season. It was a wonderful experience after two years of absence. As usual we went to cote afterwards having checked that it would be open. We felt unwelcome, the service was exceptionally poor, the food disappointingly mediocre and expensive, and then the bill was wrong. For the first time ever we removed the 'optional' service charge of 12.5% which we thought was inappropriate and excessive. Cote is living on its past reputation but will lose its clientele if it does not improve.

Went there for breakfast and it was pretty awful. Overcooked sausage and poached egg, no beans, very dry. I definitely wouldn’t bother going here for a breakfast, I can’t comment on their dinner menu.

Unfortunately had a poor experience at Cote Birmingham. We were celebrating our anniversary, the main issue was the starter arrived a few mins after we ordered and before we'd taken a bite the mains arrived.
We sent them back, also had to remind the staff about drinks order and side plates for starter.
The staff member took the mains back but did inform us they would keep them heated up, would expect them to be made again.
If we had accepted the mains we probably would have finished our meal within 30 mins of ordering, not what you want on a saturday evening.
Usually a fan of cote but won't be attending Birmingham again.

I love Cote as a brand, has such a lovely breakfast and then dinner later that day, lovely wine, generous portions and beautifully served. Booking essential in the evenings, it gets very busy.
