Had a lovely lunch here on Thursday. Pate was excellent. Friends raved about the potage. Coq au vin was deliciously rich. Mussels were big and plump. I would have preferred a wine rather than wine/cream sauce but quality of mussels was very high. All in all a great time
Always a great choice for catching up with friends!
I was surprised at how small this Bistro was and how extremely limited parking was. The small dining room lent itself to the higher noise level from patrons having conversations amongst their friends and family. The chairs were extremely uncomfortable for me and my wife as they were very narrow with arms that afforded little room to relax when seated. My wife and I tried the two different beef dishes on offer. My wife's steak, while good tasting, was extremely tough and chewy. My dish was well prepared but the beef was also rather tough despite the braising. Perhaps the butchering could have been done to where the beef cubes were smaller. I was surprised to see several drop ceiling tiles completely out of their places. Something easily repaired given a little attention to detail. We also ordered a side to share. It was the creamed spinach. The spinach was fresh but it was overly salty to the point where my wife would not eat it. Seasoning vegetables requires a delicate balance. This was clearly unbalanced. Although I did tell the waiter, he made note of it but offered no remedy and went about his business. If I were in his place, I would have offered to replace the dish with another preparation.
I've been to La Cote d'Or several times with friends but encouraged my husband to celebrate our anniversary there. The restaurant is intimate with nice tablecloths and fresh flowers, and we can actually converse with out struggling to be heard. The food was delicious as always--both my husband's steak and my trout, as well as our appetizers and desserts.
Place has gone way downhill from recently changed old ownership. Place is dingy, chairs are uncomfortable, service is spotty at best. Go on a busy night and you’re going to want to pull your hair out waiting for your food. Once it arrives, the food is just ok. I hate leaving bad reviews—I never do—but this place needs a wake up call.
An authentic French gem. Warm, quiet, professional service, substantial entrees. One of the few restaurants where I would trust the Carl's liver ( excellent). You can hear others across the table without shouting or straining. Lovely room.
We were old friends meeting, the table we were given was perfect for a group of 7. My dinner was excellent. Someone said the coq au vin was tough. Our waiter was very attentive and polite.
This restaurant is one of our favorites in this area. The servers are professional and the food is delicious.
We returned to an old favorite & it was delightful as always. Attentive service, good food and charming atmosphere.
Aspects of meal were tasty- frog legs were cooked perfectly. However, everything needed salt.... Profiteroles were ordered for this special occasion and if one wishes to splurge on dessert, they should have been filled with real ice cream- tasted like ice milk product. Really wanted to love this "authentic" french restaurant.
La Cote D'Or is always great. The food is very authentic, the service attentive, reasonably priced for what you get and for this area. We've never had a bad experience there.
Best service ever!!
Great waiter and made recommendations that definitely provided a more enjoyable experience and chance to experience the better food on the menu for that evening. Always a great experience at this local favorite. Kudos!
After a too long hiatus, I went back for lunch. The shrimp salad, French bread and wine were all top notch. The service was impeccable. La Cote D’or hasn’t lost a step.
Love this place - for lunch or dinner! Food is fresh, atmosphere is quiet enough to have a conversation, service is great.
Excellent service and advice on how to have the best food and wine. No rush. Very attentive.
Our 1 hr, 20 min. wait for our entrees was outrageous. We shared our bottle of wine and 2 orders of escargot (which were not very good) while we awaited dinner. The 4 entrees were very good and well priced. If I lived in the neighborhood, I would give it another try but it is a 30 min. trip which I would not do again.
La Cote D'Or is always reliable for fine dining at a reasonable price in a warm and relaxing environment. Highly recommended for a classic French meal and dining experience. Chef Jacques has done an excellent job of maintaining the traditions while introducing some new options to the menu.
My husband & I have always loved La Côte d’Or, because of their food, service & ambiance. We still love it for the service & ambience, but since the new chef has arrived, we have found the food disappointing.
I was always fond of their steak frites, tender steak, a little salad of non bitter lettuce, on the dish with a light dressing & the fries in a cone on the side, crispy & hot. Now, the steak & fries are on the same plate & the juice from the steak makes the fries soggy & their is no little salad of just lettuce on the plate.
Had the Sole Menuier the other night. I was very disappointed. The fish had a jelly like look & feeling to the tongue. It did not have that flaky & moist look , that a fresh fish has.
I am disappointed in their salad choices. Not everyone likes the new bitter lettuces that are out now. A salad with Boston, romaine it iceberg would be nice . They used to have a delicious one with Boston lettuce in a cucumber cup with warm goat cheese. Would love to see that back on the menu.
We still plan on going to La Cote d Or, because we like the good service & ambience & it is convenient to where we live.
Dinner with a friend. A slow night so the downchecks from other reviews about noise or slow service do not apply.
Staff very attentive, the appetizers and entrees perfectly cooked and served.
Would recommend highly
We had a great brunch here a couple of weeks ago, food was fantastic. Came a week ago for dinner with an equally great dining experience. Bread was great, I had the mussels, the actual mussels themselves were great quality, the broth was almost tasteless, needed either more salt or garlic or something, I am not a very picky eater. My son had the beef bavette steak, the meat was a bit chewy with little flavor, the peppercorn cream sauce was lacking in any flavor. Wife Daughter and Mother in law had Beef Bourguignon which they said was OUTSTANDING, and a great bottle of wine from the waiter's recommendation. Will I go back? Yes, I will ask the waiter to recommend a dish, the ambiance there is great, very comfortable and great service.
We had a fantastic time at the Cote D'Or! The food was excellent and the hosts and waitstaff were so attentive from start to finish. One of us went with the prix-fixe with boeuf bourguignon as the main, the other had seafood crepes. Both were fantastic. We also had an appetizer of frog legs (never had, wanted to try, probably will pass from now on) and a cheese platter. We are fairly experienced with fine cheese, and the cheese platter was incredible. They served fresh bread that was amazing as well. We shared a bottle of lovely Cote du Rhone for a nice price. My Creme Caramel was mediocre, to be honest, but my wife's mousse cake was such a great way to finish the meal. For the most part the noise level and ambiance were good--it was loud when most of the tables were full, but it tapered off. We will certainly keep it on our list of places to go for a special romantic meal.
Great night out. Definitely save room for the Tarte Tatin!
As always, we were not disappointed dining at La Côte d’Or. We decided to choose from the “ new classic”menu and were most satisfied with this decision. The potage appetizers were tasty, and the fish dishes and cassoulet were noteworthy. A bottle of Burgundy and mousse and éclairs rounded out the meal. We are looking forward to our next visit!
Excellent French food, simply prepared, is the byword at this lovely restaurant. Try the celery root "coleslaw" or the perfect crepes or the Boston lettuce salad with just a hint of dressing. All of their salads and classic French menu items are the best versions. Just wonderful food. And relatively inexpensive. Unusual menu items as well as the classic standards. How many times do you see floating island on a dessert menu? This is a wonderful restaurant, with expert waiters and consistently good specials. A gem.
We were given a gift certificate for Christmas and decided to use it for a Valentine’s Day dinner. The food was very good, although it was a little slow coming out. The chef latter came out and explained that everyone came in at once. We really did not mind the delay. It just extended a wonderful evening.
If you can get there and order by 6:30, they gave a special pre fixed menu that looks like an amazing value!
We have been to La Cote d'Or numerous times and it is always excellent. Just good French food.
My husband and I came here to celebrate his birthday. The server was attentive, friendly, and gave good suggestions when we asked him about what pre-dinner cocktails he recommended. The ambiance was lovely. The food was perfectly cooked, and the portions were generous. I cannot say enough good things about this place. We had a wonderful time.
I’ve been many times. Everything was quite good as always!
Superb food, lovely interior and service. They create a special experience.
I have been dining here for many years. Great, unique location. Food fun, and service nonintrusive.
A family birthday dinner was rewarded by excellent food and professional service during restaurant week. We had heard favorable reviews from friends, and they were justified. Our party of 5 sampled a wide range of the menu and everyone was pleased. I wish that I could make a sauce like their beef bourguignon.
Food and service were excellent - given it was Restaurant Week, the value was even better. Crepes were delicious and the French bread absolutely outstanding. Easy to get to right off of I66.
Worst service ever, our reservation was at 8:30 we got our table on time but our appetizer came at 9:30. We asked to change the table they did not answer and they table we wanted nobody seat there all night. The food was ok. We had to ask for refill 10 times. Worst restaurant ever.
Went on Friday of Restaurant Week, so it was very busy. Took longer than usual for everything, and our server commented several times about how busy he was. They could’ve used another server on the floor. We weren’t in a hurry, so decided to make the best of it, although almost an hour before being served the appetizer course is served is a little ridiculous. Food was good, though perhaps a notch off their usual. The onions in my onion soup were not caramelized, and the broth tasted more like chicken stock than a hearty beef stock. My husband enjoyed the escargot, as well as his main course of butterflied rainbow trout. I had the seafood crepes-loaded with shrimp, scallops and mussels and a tasty sauce. The crepes were a little over browned and thicker than what I’d expect. We both enjoyed the dark chocolate mousse.
I would like to give special mention of the manager who went above and beyond for us, first recommending a nice bottle of wine, and then sorting out the Open Table award certificate we had been issued. It wasn’t possible for him to scan the QR code, and I hadn’t printed it out. He ended up taking my phone and either printed it or somehow entered enough info to apply the $50 to our bill. On a busy night, it would’ve been much easier not to deal with that, and it would be nice for Open Table to make the process of using awards easier both for the patron and the business. Be forewarned: you have to make a special reservation to cash in your award. You can’t just show up at a participating restaurant and expect the award to be honored.
The meal was outstanding!
The appetizer's and entree's were excellent. The only issue was the dessert, the ice cream was crystallized.
