Came here for Galentine’s day. Great ambiance - very Parisian with low lights, cozy atmosphere. Staff are friendly. I had the cassoulet and the meat was falling off the bone and delicious! My friend had a pasta dish and the sauce was very rich and the noodles perfectly aldente! Large selection of European wines that can be a bit overwhelming but our server was very knowledgeable. I would definitely come back!

We love this restaurant and the staff. Our 7 year old daughter constantly asks to go here. It is not easy to find a place that we all feel comfortable at and enjoy so much. 5 stars without hesitation!

We just love this place, and have gone back repeatedly -- first, the great staff is welcoming, helpful and go out of their way to help on wine selections and food. Then there's the ambiance -- the back patio is wonderful in summer, the inside is lovely and you can actually hear conversations! And the food: the idea is to order dishes, and share with the whole table, and they also offer wine flights, which are really creative. Great variety -- awesome flatbreads with toppings, mussels are amazing, flat iron steak, and excellent range of choices, vegetarian and otherwise. And great wine selections. All around, a favorite, especially if you have a group of friends or family to share those dishes with..

A friend and I dined at A Cote on SuperBowl Sunday, as our husbands have a long-standing tradition of a gentlemen's gathering.

The cocktails were delicious, as was the wine. The salt cod fritters were wonderful, and I enjoyed my flat iron stake greatly. My friend didn't know the pork tenderloin was in a batter, and would have preferred that be noted on the menu, but enjoyed her meal.

We had only one issue -- with the dark walls and early sunset time, it was very difficult to see our food -- and we nearly started a fire with the candle when trying to read the bill! That said, we're in our 70s! Next time I dine at A Cote, I'll go during daylight savings time and the darkness will be a non-issue.

The food was delicious and our server was very accommodating. A friend in our group is Vegan and while there are many vegetarian options on the menu, it was challenging to find anything Vegan. However, our server worked with the kitchen to change a dish by substituting a vegan pasta.

The food was delicious. Our waiter's recommendations for wines were right on. She sort of forgot about us for a while, she recognized it and she comped a glass of wine. Overall, we were very happy.
