La Cote D'Or is always a good experience. The food is good and well worth the price, the staff is always very pleasant and overall it is a great place.
Call ahead if you want to know their menu options As their website is not accurate. We went 2 days before Valentines on a Friday evening.
After checking online to see their specials and finding none, we were surprised that the only menu available was a prix fixed menu of $54 per person for Valentines weekend. We decided not to do that mainly because we were not hungry enough for all that food and were not going to be home to enjoy leftovers. Our past experiences have always been great food and service and we will be back ( it will call ahead).
A limited menu for Valentine’s Day but the selections available were very appealing. Together we had salad with mushroom en croute, rack of lamb, shrimp, a pear dessert and a white chocolate mousse with pistachio cream sauce. Outstanding. We will return regularly. We also purchased special cloth napkins to help out with a little Covid relief.
Me and my girlfriend went for restaurant week last week and it was amazing. The French onion soup was perfect and the waiter was super friendly. Would recommend to anyone, lemon tart and French onion soup were spectacular.
Have heard good reviews of this restaurant for years. Tried during restaurant week. Food was more than plentiful and very, very good. Cute place with indoor patio, where we sat. Service was very good. Highly recommend.
I came to the La Cote D'Or with my teenagers to share one of my old good memories. Their father and I had a romantic dinner at this restaurant about 20 years ago. My teenagers were impressed by its delicate taste and professional services that the restaurant could offered. Our choices were Escargots, Frog Legs, Belgium Endive Salad, Rainbow Trout with Crab meat stuffing, Rack of Lamb (medium-rare), Bouillabaisse, Cream Caramel, and Apple Almond Tarte. Each one of dishes was perfect. Passed forward a legacy to next generation, and hope this restaurant will continue running business.
We just love this place. It’s worth the drive from southwest DC for my friends and I. Tasty and a value. New server on my recent visit. Well trained and attentive. They deserve a big tip.
Phenomenal food, wine, service, and ambiance. Will definitely be returning.
The food and service was excellent. I felt like I had been transported back to France. The food was authentically French and delicious! I’ll be back tomorrow!
Went for brunch during Restaurant Week. Excellent Value as they let you order app, entree, and dessert from regular menu. Salad was tasty, seafood crepes were delicious, and floating island dessert fun to try (tartly available except in French restaurant s). Cute cafe ambiance, friendly staff, unexpectedly good, authentic French fare. A great discovery — iI will be back!
My French husband approves this restaurant! Truly a gem!
Food selection and preparation were excellent, service was very good
We will definitely return
This place was amazing in all aspects. The food and the service were awesome. Between my friend and I, we got the escargots, smoked salmon salad, salmon en croute and the veal. All were very very tasty. The bread pudding was a bit bland but we did take it to go.
We had been wanting to try this little bistro in East Falls Church for a while and finally had an opportunity to do so. It was outstanding. Small, cozy provincial atmosphere, tremendous value, and the food was excellent. In particular, the beef burgundy was exceptional, it just melted in your mouth exactly as it's supposed to. Some great green beans, too. Really fun, relaxed evening, I highly recommend it.
A classic. Perfect French food and drink. Pleasant atmosphere.
New Year’s Eve
Only had pre fixe menu when we went so that was a bit of a disappointment as the menu selections were sparse. However, what we had in appetizers, especially the escargot, was excellent. Main courses were very good for three out of four dishes, which was a bit disappointing since we expect at this price level that all dishes are excellent. And, dessert (only two options) were both not worth it. So, overall, somewhat inconsistent on food quality. Service was very good and attentive. But, at this price level, there are simply more satisfying restaurants.
Seafood crepe was good. And the warm bread with butter was perfect. The service was excellent.
Great food, excellent service, friendly, fun evening.
I cannot believe we waited so long before we went to La Cote D'Or! We made reservations for the Thanksgiving Day pre-fixe service and were blown away by the food and the hospitality. Everything from the drinks to the dessert was outstanding. We definitely will return very soon!
The ambiance and quite nature of La Cote D'or keeps it at the top of our date night list. Food is always good. Tons of choices. A 3-course menu that makes it a good value also.
It's a great experience that is very affordable prefix and had a trout was extremely fresh and tasty and fresh vegetables and a good apple tart I expect to be coming back soon
Good menu, adequate social distancing. Good service. Excellent food preparation -schnitzel and trout dinners.
Excellent French food. Smooth, friendly service. Nice visit from the chef. Good social distancing. The couscous was superb.
The French cuisine was authentic and had great flavor. Some of the cuts of meat could have been of higher quality but for the price point was a good value. The service was outstanding. Great experience, we will likely come again to try more of the menu.
Nice setting, very good service, excellent food, and a great dessert.
Menu was truly authentic French. I was impressed that 'Il flottante' was available; and it was just as I remember the dessert as made in France. My guests who ordered the Steak bavette with peppercorn sauce agreed it was one of the best beef dishes they have tasted. We are looking forward to future visits.
Always a dependable neighborhood restaurant for a very good dinner or lunch. You won't be disappointed!
The place was quiet, the staff was very attentive, and the food was amazing. Great experience overall
Great food and service!
Although we miss the previous look; we are so pleased that they are safely open and are providing excellent food and service again. We love that we can walk to one of our favorite restaurants and feel welcome.
It has the potential to be an awesome spot, but it needs major improvements in their design, ambience, and menu.
It was as always a great pleasure dining at La Cote d’Or! Fabulous food and good service.
They are doing an excellent job with separations in the Dining area during the pandemic, although some flowers on the tables would improve the ambiance
The fish soup was too salty for my taste and the bavette, ordered medium rare was well done.
I have been here many times before covid and enjoyed it very much.
Perhaps there was a different person in the kitchen.
On my wife’s birthday, for our first meal in a restaurant since the pandemic began in March, we returned to La Côte d’Or French restaurant in Falls Church. The food and service was even better than we had remembered from several visits before, and the staff was careful to ensure sanitary socially-distanced dining conditions. We ordered off the $45 three-course prix fixé menu, and every course was outstanding.
Very friendly and welcoming staff. Relaxing brunch.
Traditional French. Very pleasant! Great for dates!
Music ambience is soothing and low.
Food was delicious and the staff very helpful and attentive. Main course did not wait for us to finish our starter. There was a nice little wait so you could enjoy your drink and chat a little.
Excellent food, great value and good service. Able to sit on the porch with windows open as well as plexiglass dividers between the tables. Felt safe and enjoyed the evening.
