Wonderful as usual from the gracious hosts to the amazing food and wine! We will of course be back again.
Love this place. Very authentic and a real hidden gem.
Excellent food and an enjoyable ambiance.
I flew down to Venice, FL from New York for a football game on Friday evening, 8/23, and had lunch with a friend at Cote France at his recommendation. This was my first time visiting the restaurant and it was a memorable experience. I started with French Onion Soup, and then had a special Parisian sandwich for my main course. I finished with the Nutella Creme Brûlée, and it proved to be the perfect end to our meal. My wife & I will be back in December to spend the winter in Venice, and we plan to make many more visits to Cote France during our stay.
Outstanding restaurant! A real gem in downtown Venice! Good , presentation and excellent service! Highly recommend !
Overall, it was a very good meal. The onion soup was excellent, as was the wine (I had the Cote de Rhone). The beef bourguignon, was tasty, but some of the meat was somewhat dry.
Thank you for your great review, hope to see you soon again. Thomas
Great food. Nice ambiance. Attentive service. Dining room was a little warm. I can’t wait to return.
Thank you verry much David for your wonderfull review, see you soon again ! Thomas
When we have Sunday matinee tickets at the Venice Theatre, we often chose this place for lunch because it’s within easy walking distance of both parking and the theatre. Lunch is tasty and reasonably priced. The service gets us served and finished easily in time. So, yes, our tradition will continue through this theatre season.
Hello Dan thank you for your beautifull review, see you soon again before your play or other specials occasion! Thomas
We were a little disappointed by the summer menu it was limited and as always small portions but still plenty for us as we love French food. I was hoping for something cozier it is very bright but the staff was very friendly and it was tasty.
Hello Devon, sorry for the small summer menu but we try to offer an authentic and frech cuisine so its hard to have a full menu on the slow season ( is the first time Coté France stay open all the summer..) Hope to see you soon in high season with the full menu. Thank you for you helping review Thomas
Great food and experience. Lovely place. We had a great time twice with family and friends.

A cozy and authentic French bistro with wonderful wine and lovely food.
Thank you so much for your great review! Thomas
Excellent food and service. It’s a shame that the construction in Venice is affecting business. We had a 6:30 reservation and had no trouble parking. Try Cote France you won’t be disappointed!
Hi Sandra ! Thank you verry much for your beautifull review !! Hope to see you soon ! Thomas
I highly recommend this restaurant. The service was excellent, the food superb, the price was $$-$$$. The restaurant is small so I recommend reservations if you are scheduling in the winter season. I ordered the snapper with vegetables and French onion soup......EXCELLENT!
Thank you Donna for your wonderfull review !! Thomas
Really amazing food. Ordered the escargot. They make their own butter and infuse it with garlic. Its truly unbelievable. The wine menu is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. They have a brunch on Sat and Sun that I cannot wait to try. Really excellent experience!
Hello Donna, Thank you very much for your awsome review ! See you soon for the Wine pairing Dinner And why not for a brunch! Have a wonderfull day Thomas
Great place for a quick lunch. The food is really good. Nice service. Feels like a true French cafe. My wife and I really enjoyed it.
Thank you for your beautifull review ! Hope to see you soon again, why not for dinner to continue an authentic french experience ? Thomas
We attended the wine pairing dinner and not only was the dinner fantastic, the sommelier presented us with four wines. The presentation was informative and fun. All of the wines were great - we bought all four! I would definitely recommend Cote France for a 4 star dining experience. Tomas, the owner, is a young and friendly restauranteur working his heart out to make sure you have a wonderful experience. GO!
Thank you Cheryl for your beautifull review! We are realy happy to welcome you again soon! Thank you again have a wonderfull day. Thomas
Fresh, well-prepared, traditional French cuisine. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
Went for Mother's Day brunch with my sister. Restaurant is very small but efficiently utilized. Food was exactly what you would expect from a French bistro. Pate was awesome! Crepes lovely. Service on point. A definite go to place. Make reservations!
Hi, Thank you for your realy good review! I'm glad at you have a good Mother's day ! Hope to see you soon ! Thomas
This is my third time at Cote France. We do not mind driving the hour to and from our house in Punta Gorda. We were surprised when we heard of the new ownership. However, the food remains
fantastic. Our meal is enhanced by our being able to bring in our own wine. We will be back.
Thank you so much for your very good review! It was a pleasure to meet you and share our wine ! See you soon Have a realy good day Thomas
One of the best meals at a French restaurant! Authentic preparation and staff. Will return when we take our annual trip to Sarasota area.
Thank you for you beautifull review !! Thomas
This was our first visit to this restaurant and we loved the small, intimate space with a European feel. It is located in a quieter location off the main drag of touristi West Venice Ave. in the former San Marco Hotel. The food was excellent. A limited menu, but I always feel this is a good thing so to prepare every dish well. My sister and I had the duck, my husband the stuffed chicken. Everything was cooked to perfection, not too much sauce or butter but beautifully seasoned. Desserts were yummy and also they had a nice wine list. We will definately be back. This might become our new regular dining place.
Hello Heidi Thank you very much for your wonderfull review! See you soon again ! Thomas
Thank you for the 4 star !! Thomas
We have been there several times and have never been disappointed. Not a fancy place but food is excellent and beautifully presented. If your going to the Venice Theater, it is right next door. Not a large restaurant so, in season, you should book at least a week ahead. Bon Appetite!
Hi Jimbo thank you for your realy good review it's a pleasure to welcome you before your play in the beautifull Venice Theater! See you again soon Thomas
Recent home buyer in Venice and first visit to Cote France. My wife and I will certainly return. Very authentic and delicious French bistro cuisine. Service was prompt and attentive. Decent wine selection. Prices were consistent with value received.

Lovely time as always. Great, authentic French cuisine by wonderful people. A true gem in Venice.
This time we had brunch, which was excellent.
Thank you for your very nice review ! Hope to see you soon Have a great day Thomas
Excellent restaurant under new ownership for the past 3 months. Real french food and the wine recommendations are excellent. Our experience having been to most of the restaurants on Venice Blvd and the side streets is that THIS IS THE ONE NOT TO MISS.
Thank you David for your really good review ! Hope to see you soon Thomas
