Steakhouse
COTE, the carnivorous vision of proprietor Simon Kim, blends the dining experience of Korean barbeque together with the hallmarks of a classic American steakhouse. The result is a unique, convivial and interactive atmosphere, accompanied by the highest quality USDA Prime beef, an impeccable 1200+ label wine list, and a suite of classic-but-creative cocktails.

Beginning August 16, 2021, COTE will require all customers dining indoors to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination during the check-in process in order to proceed with their experience per NYC’s vaccination guidelines. We will accept the following forms of vaccination proof:

Please note, reservations are not indoor/outdoor specific. If you have a preference, you may note it in the reservation, and we will do our best to accommodate. We also accept reservations through Sevenrooms and Resy. Thank you, and we look forward to serving you!

After a very snarky concierge checkin who insisted 3 of a party of 4 couldn't be seated until the last arrived, then told we had to order immediately for the 4th if we were seated, I was ready to go to one of the myriad other great restaurants nearby. Luckily we didn't, and after we ordered food and waited 30 minutes before asking if someone could take our drink order, the meat feast arrived and was a hit. Don't know how the service and attitude merits a Michelin star but my guests loved it and we would all return.

We paid over $100 per person to get ridiculed. First, when we were sitting, someone from the table behind us threw a glass of wine on me, they were super drunk and they immediately got up and escaped (laughing). No one stopped them. I was soaking wet and it even got to our coats. Then, a tattooed waitress with glasses came and asked for our ids (we are all over 21) and laughed at us and said “I can’t accept these ids” and told us they were fake. She then went next to her friends and they all caused a scene, analyzing us, trying to figure out whether we are underage or not. Her manager came after a while and said the ids were real and offered us drinks in return of me showering in wine and sitting there soaking wet. NEVER AGAIN THIS WAS HORRIBLE.

We loved everything about Cote!! Tried to get in here the last time I was in NYC but could not get a reso. Now I know why. I’m gluten free and they accommodated without issue. Come here! It’s worth it! If you have time after or before your meal venture downstairs for a drink. Equipped with living walls and chill vibe. Trust me, just do it!

Our first visit to Cote was a memorable one. The Korean barbecue style of cooking on the grill at our table was really fun. Our servers were so great, personable and knowledgeable about all of the interesting dishes. The four of us had the butchers feast, which included several types of steak, cooked perfectly by our servers. The Korean side dishes and sauces accompanying the steak were so delicious. Cote really is a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

Butcher's feast was great. More than enough food. The Wagyu melted in my mouth. Server highly recommended/pressured us into appetizers but we definitely did not need it! The wedge salad was decadent and a little too heavy for us (three women).

What a great dinner!
Good quality meat, attentive service and nice ambience.
We opt for the Steak Omakase (include filet mignon, ribeye, ribeyecap, hanger-steak, 150 days aged ribeye, american wagyu, A5 Japanese wagyu and galbi) and it was well worth it!
Meat cooked to your liking in front of you. We like medium rare and each piece was perfectly cooked, tasty, tender and juicy. The meal comes with side dishes (accompaniments) and dessert.
Highly recommend if you like meat.

Food was great. Only negative was people at next table needed to “get a room” and made it somewhat uncomfortable for those on the side of the table facing them. Wish staff had asked them to cool it and be a bit more discreet.

Third time to this restaurant. It never disappoints! The meats are incredible and you don’t smell like BBQ’ed steaks afterwards. The ventilation system has been well thought out. The waitress who cook the meats for you at your table is putting on a show. The wine list is great. Nothing not to like except how long it takes to get a reservation. So much more fun than a traditional steak house. Sampling the different cuts make you appreciate the texture and the taste.

Not Michelin Star worthy.
It was all good (food and service) until they finished cooking and basically wanted us out of there. We had the butchers feast and for 4 people and it was very enjoyable during the cooking period.
I would have appreciated that the restaurant would just tell us they had another booking behind us or that there was a time limit. Rather than doing that, someone came over and just started clearing plates and took away my plate and utensils when I said I was still working on it. They came over once every 5min to ask to clear plates when there was still quite a bit of food on the table. Eventually we gave up and gave in. Then they gave us the bill and then took away the water.

Oh yeah, and don’t bother with the new bar downstairs unless you want to pay 20USD for a gin and tonic. Felt ripped off.

Liked the food. Loved the service. Had an awesome experience with the wait staff - they were very nice and attentive. The food pairings was unusual - some were better than others. And the menu pricing was a bit high. But the quality was there, the service was there, and had a great time. The space was modern looking and not too comfortable (bench like seating with large table for large parties).

Be prepared to not be able to cook you meat on your own or maybe not how you like it. We were 3 ppl at our table and each of us like it cooked different ways. Our waitress got angry several times if we cooked it ourselves or moved it “without her permission”. If you are okay with that then this is the korean bbq for you. Otherwise good taste and value. You will definitely be very full after eating here.
