My wife & I had another great experience at Cote France. This was the first time that we had dinner there, and the appetizers, entrees, desserts and wine were excellent. Alex & Thomas always take great care of us and we will return soon.
Lovely restaurant good food enjoyed by all seven of us. Would go again
Very good food and service
Authentically French cuisine, prepared and served by an authentically French staff. Delicious pate, duck breast, and scallops. The best profiteroles I've had in along time.
A lovely intimate restaurant with delightful French based food and wonderful service
Thanks to Open Table we found this lovely restaurant on a recent overnight stay in Venice, Florida. What a delightful experience!
Excellent service. Food was first class. We will certainly return and recommend to our friends. Thanks for a great dining experience.
The food and service was awesome!
Our second visit to this lovely little restaurant. Wonderful, friendly service and fabulous food.
Lobster bisque was watery, onion soup no flavor. No plates for bread. Over all will not be back!
What a disappointing experience. We were seated upstairs above the main dining room, in a space with no ambiance. My husband had the escargot and filet mignon, which he said were okay but nothing special. I had the mushroom bisque and scallops. The bisque was too hot to eat when it arrived, as if it had been simmering on the stove for hours. When I was finally able to eat it, it was lumpy and tasteless. The scallops were good, not outstanding, but the rice and spinach they were served over were soggy and unappealing. We skipped dessert.
We had a special Christmas Eve dinner. All 4 meals were great.(onion soup was fantastic) The service was excellent.The French champagne and wines were a treat.
Wonderful food, terrific atmosphere, very attentive staff. We will definitely return!
I used to eat here frequently but had not returned after a bad experience. Choose it for dinner before the theater! It was OUTSTANDING! The food was exquisite, great service, and good wine. We will return again soon.
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.

Thank you so much for you beautifull review !! Thomas
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
