La Cote D'Or
Great food, great service. Though, for a French restaurant, the dessert options are limited and not very French in nature.
Everything inside the Restaurant is perfect. Only the outside parking is limited.
Having passed by this little place for years, we finally visited and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. If you need a fix of good French food, try Code D'Or. Though not exquisite in the French sense, it was completely enjoyable. Looking forward to returning.
Overall this was a very nice dinner and enjoyed it very much. My only problem, is I remember the food as being outstanding, although this was a few years ago since I had dined.
Great place to take a date or your parents as food is always, dependably good and a good value.
Lovely way to celebrate my birthday. Great service, not rushed, delicious food. It was steak night, and several of our party enjoyed that. Tasty mussels and loved the beet salad.
Everyone loved their meals.
The chef is very talented. After changing ownership I find some different menu items and miss others. He is talented, but he sometimes misses the mark for a more American take on French cuisine.
I had forgotten what a gem this restaurant is. The food was excellent and the service is expert. It's such a pleasure to experience a well run restaurant.
Birthday lunch with friend.
Service was slow and food just okay. Disappointed as I usually thoroughly enjoy La Côte d’Or. hope next time is a big improvement!
La Cote D'Or is one of those 'go to' places for a fabulous meal and service. Not only is the service excellent, but the food compares. Our group of six began with a bottle of French Rose and the cheese plate, yum. The we moved on to mussels, soft shell crabs, hanger steak, more Rose and chocolate moose and raspberries in caramel sauce. I have to say the raspberries in caramel sauce is the best dessert ever! After reading a recent article by Frank Bruni, NYTimes former food critic, about how where he likes to dine has changed since he turned 50, I agree with him and La Cote D'Or is exactly the kind of place he describes. They act like they know you even if you haven't been there in five years. So, my note to myself, go more often. Bon Appetite!
The restaurant is always reliable and quiet enough that you can have a conversation at your table and not get hoarse. Service is attentive.
My wife and her friends wish this place would open for afternoon tea 1-4 pm at least one Saturday a month.
The food was good but somewhat bland. The desserts were amazing
Excellent food as always. The smails are delicious, drenched in garlic. The pork schnitzel tasty and perfectly cooked. All the little things are just right- even the bread is the best bagette in the area.
Good value during Falls Church Restaurant week, pricey otherwise.
I clumsily knocked over my almost-finished glass of wine, breaking the glass into many shards. The staff quickly swept up all the pieces and I was then, to my surprise, served a full glass of wine , gratis.
We took advantage of Restaurant Week by ordering the $35 three-course dinners. My chickpea crepe with grilled vegetables and chunks of codfish on top was excellent and the best of the three courses.
This place tries hard to be a French bistro but it's not quite there, although much better than it used to be. The pate and caesar salad were excellent. My husband's bavette was tough, and my pork schnitzel overcooked and too thin. The desserts were very good, and the wine list extensive and well priced, especially by the glass. (Not too many places have a white Cote du Rhone!) All in all, this is great value for money, especially the menus. However, the service although professional is slow, perhaps because the kitchen is overburdened. There was a long time between courses. But in Arlington there is a dearth of neighborhood restaurants that aren't noisy and totally millennial, and La Cote d'Or is a find, in that sense.
Always a lovely experience. Food delicious! Susie, waitress - the best!
Everything was perfect, as I had expected. One cannot go wrong dining at La Cote D'Or.
Everything was good, as usual, but I was a little disappointed in my Apple Pie dessert.....looked to be a packaged pie (or at least not made-from scratch by La Cote D'Or people). My husband enjoyed the lamb stew very much.
Coffee could have been hotter, but as usual, overall we were very pleased and will be back soon.
We've driven by for over a decade and decided to eat at La Cote D'Or. So glad we finally ate here. Service was attentive, noise level was good for having a conversation. Food was excellent. Wine list, while not large, has good variety and price points. Menu has good variety and something for everyone. The cassoulet was outstanding. Beat salad was also very good. Only complaint was our table was close to a swinging door that wait staff used regularly, so it wasn't a great table location. Tables closer to window would be better. Overall we really enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back.
Enjoyed the new menu. Service was great, friendly, and efficient.
Great food, reasonable prices, service is always excellent. We’ll be back again!
Cote D'Or serves traditional French cuisine in a pleasant environment. Traditional dishes like Bouillabaisse and Cassoulet are excellent. Shad roe was OK, but a bit overcooked. Great salads and soups.
The foieGras Pate was tasty, as was the Caesar salad, I appreciated the large shavings of parmesan cheese. I had the catfish, which was very good. My partner tried the pork weiner schnitzel. The selected wines were $25 a bottle on Sundays. The profiteroles were a bit better than the creek brûlée’. Overall a under appreciated gem of a French restaurant in falls church. They offer $35 and $45 prix fix three course meals.
Rack lamb very thin..mix of pink and well done.
Good salad....fries too salty
Very good place if you want French food at a reasonable price. The 3 course lunch menu is wonderful and a great deal.
Can only remark as before! This venue is always perfect and outstanding! The service is exemplary and very attentive ... makes you feel like you are dining in a friend's home! Our favorite restaurant on the same level as Chez Napolean in NYC!
Excellent service and food. Will definitely return
Always a very good meal at a fair price. Parking can be a bit tricky, but the shared parking lot with The hotel next door helps.
This is a terrific neighborhood spot with excellent, mostly simple French food. You can count on it's being quiet enough for conversation and never disappoints.
Love La Cote D'Or and seek to go at every opportunity!
La Cote d'Or is a classic French restaurant, one of the few in the area to focus on the classic French cuisine and many standard favorites, which were all well prepared along classic lines. The decor is very attractive and at a Sunday brunch it was very quiet even though mostly full. The prix fixe menu is very attractively priced for a nice 3-course meal. We will definitely return.
Excellent place for date night. Cozy and great atmosphere. Looking forward to another visit!
I had the Dijon crusted lamb chops cooked as the chef choosed. They were tender and delicious!
Excellent food and service! They kindly took care of my wife and her bad leg while I parked. We have never been disappointed by them.
It's the perfect place for a special occasion, the servers know what they are recommending and are very professional. The attention is just right and not overwhelming/too much. It has a old-world European flair, with an almost intimate ambiance which is welcome for a small group. Love it, we have eaten there about 5 times in recent years.
A special place, with just the right 'ambiance française'.
Great food, great restaurant.
Easy Open Table reservation. Can be very limited parking (may need to park on controlled side streets). Warm and gracious welcome. Excellent service from professional wait help. Wizards in kitchen create and deliver wondrously tasty and overall fantastic food and drink. Can be a little noisy when all tables are used (may need slightly raised voice). Overall very satisfied when it was time to go, wanting to let others know how great this dining experience was (on every visit).
