We are continuing to try every dish on the menu; tonight did not disappoint. The bisque was delicious and the house salad with goat cheese was exceptional. We went on to have the pork chop special as well as the vegetable special, which were both wonderful. A bottle of Cotes du Rhône, and chocolate tarts completed the evening. Another wonderful experience!

We find this to be a genuine country French eating experience - the cuisine choices, the wines, the service and (for one of us) the setting. The main floor space is small (perhaps 10 tables?) but nicely spaced and not noisy (which, of course, may be due to a more elderly and sedate clientele!). Highly recommended.

Wonderful experience from beginning to end. The French onion soup was delicious, filet mignon was cooked to perfection, and the Coq au vin was the best we ever had. We enjoyed a bottle of Cotes du Rhône per our server’s recommendation, which paired perfectly with our meal. The flourless chocolate cake and profiteroles were a delicious ending to the meal. Excellent!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
