La Cote D'Or
As usual, excellent food, service, and ambience! The Thanksgiving meal was a delight.
Was disappointed no vegetarian stuffing alternative dessert was good
Our waiter was very good
Food was excellent. Smaller tables were a little cramped for space with the dishes. Overall a great value. Will be back to try more options.
La Cote D'Or is reliably good - good food and good value. I have dined there periodically for years and always enjoy it. The number of entrees is limited and many are on the heavy side so if you are like me - avoiding red meat and heavier dishes - your selection is limited.
A winner on the local scene! Consistently good over the years.
Excellent and hard to find level
of service and sophistication at an affordable price.
Love the well priced fixed price 3 course menu for early diners. Made for a perfect pre-movie dinner. Love the coq au vin!
My friend and I both had the trout almondine , and we both found the dish good but very garlicky.
We very much enjoy this restaurant.. The staff are so welcoming and attentive. The Diver Sole is my favorite !
A delightful restaurant ambiance with excellent service, but the food is uneven. This night the beef bourguignon was overwined and under seasoned, wile the very expensive Dover sole was lacking in taste and served minus the lemon butter sauce. On other occasions, the food has ranged from excellent to average to mediocre. Nonetheless, I keep going back because I like the place.
The cassoulet was wonderful. They don't have it all the time, so when they do, I'm sure to go.
We always love La Cote D'Or! The cassoulet was excellent and Steak Frites is always terrific.
What can you add to something that is perfect? We are never disappointed. I always celebrate my birthday there. This year I missed Jacques. He was not there. I think that Jean Marc is wonderful Jacqueline
The quality of the food served was not above mediocre and I resent a waiter pushing you to order more food than what you want or can eat. If that continues I will not return .
this is the quintessential neighborhood bistro - good food and attentive service. Always have a lovely time.
it is a little loud at times, as tables are relatively close together.
Also, it would be nice to have a little more variety in the menu - perhaps adjust seasonally.
We enjoy going there but the basic menu doesn't offer enough interesting choices to warrant going more frequently. last time I had the fish, it was overdone, so I have stricken the fish choices off the list. With more variety, we would go more regularly.
Also, it is a lovely choice for lunch. Went there recently and the menu offered a lot of options.
La Cote D'Or is a favorite of my husband's for the last ~18 years, so our son (17 yo) and I were delighted to take him there for his "big 60" b'day Sat 2, 2019. Pluses: excellent service, very good food. Negatives: (1) we arrived at 7:00pm and, having made reservations, were given a very good table - the problem is that until almost 8:15 the room was very noisy, making quiet conversation between the 3 of us difficult and forcing us to hear more of the other diners' conversations than we were interested in, and (2) extremely limited options for a vegetarian (me). Lastly, young, seemingly new waiter got quite confused - although the reservation was in my name and made clear that birthday was my husband (male person), he brought the celebratory dessert while I was in the bathroom and got quite confused. Restaurant recouped nicely and compted us 2 of the 4 desserts - however, poor young man was mortified. We'll definitely go back for the next appropriate occasion.
A neighborhood gem, indeed. Keep up the wonderful job! :)
Allows charming and gracious with excellent French cuisine. A great neighborhood dining experience.
The food was fantastic. We caught the last night of restaurant week so we were able to get a three course meal for a great value. Service was friendly and timely. We will go back.
Very good food. We went during the Arlington restaurant week and this is one of the few restaurants that used their normal menu so the value was fantastic. We ordered escargots and a cheese plate for our appetizers, both of which were excellent; seafood crepes (which were served in a boat type dish which seemed odd but helped contain the sauce and such) and the Babette steak which was excellent; and the bread pudding and floating island for dessert - both of which were good but not great. Nice place with a few different types of rooms to eat in. The service was adequate but definitely not quick. Regardless, going during restaurant week made the whole evening totally worth it.
The only issue was when we were asked by the water boy if we wanted sparkling or tap water. My wife then asked if the sparkling water was free, and the water boy said yes. When we got the check it showed $6.99 cost for the San Pelegrino. We did not ask to have the check changed, but don't the staff servers know the difference between complimentary, free and cost?
We enjoyed discovering La Cote d'Or on Oct. 26, 2019. It was Arlington Restaurant Week. But besides the advantageous deal, we absolutely loved the food, prepared with such detail, care. Every course was absolutely delicious! (Haute Cuisine!) The wonderful friendly service (Christian was so attentive to all our needs and was very friendly and classy) was perfect ("grande classe"). Even the gentleman who served the water was so polite, and classy. The atmosphere was warm and intimate. Real French Cuisine! We highly recommend this lovely restaurant and we'll be back.
Fantastic food and service with Christian! Loved the restaurant week brunch menu.
Came here for Restaurant Week with a friend. Although the service was good, the food was just alright. Also thought the prices were a bit high for the quality we got.
We had a great Restaurant Week lunch at Côte d’Or. Our 4 guests from Maryland were so delighted that they are planning another visit. The lunch choices fit everyone’s palate. From appetizers to desserts, the culinary experience was wonderful.
The service was delightful — present but not intrusive on our romantic evening. Restaurant Week menu was an outstanding deal, but even the ordinary prices were acceptable. There was an excellent wine list. The only thing I could suggest is that a few half bottles of wine be added to the menu.
M son-in-law and daughter were visiting from Indiana. We had the best meal
I've had in the 45 years I've lived in Virginia. Regret is not finding this
terrific restaurant sooner.
Great food. Best value too. it was restaurant week and they offered the entire menu to choose from. Can’t wait to go back!
Great date night at La Cote D'Or. Will definitely be back soon
Always a great experience: food is superb, service very attentive without being overbearing.
We are regulars at La Cote d'Or. On this occasion we took two friends for lunch. The food and wait staff were wonderful. Language could have been a problem, but our server was multi-lingual. Hooray!
Always love La Cote d’Or. Food, ambience, service reminds of restaurants in France.
Great food. Great service. Quiet. Great setting and room.
Wonderful! Keep it up and doing the same fabulous job! :)
A 50th anniversary family celebration. We set up an early reservation, were seated promptly, and received outstanding service throughout the three courses of the meal. Escargot, French onion soup and roasted goat cheese salad were especially nice appetizers. The rack of lamb as main course was cooked exactly to the preference of each diner, the mussels, as always, were delicious, as were the sautéed sea scallops. Desserts were very good, as was the wine list. As aperitif, the raspberry Kir chambord was elegant and delicious. We were very happy we chose La Côte d'Or.
My friends and I at there often. It's easy to park, the food s god, the noise level tolerable. We often celebrate each other's birthays there amd I hope we will continue to do so.
The Sunday brunch was superb - everything about it and especially the quality of the food.
We have been going to La Cote D'or for years, and now more than ever before it offers great quality
for very reasonable prices. Quiet for good conversation and enjoyable. Highly recommend it.
It's a quaint restaurant, the servers are great and attentive. The food was okay - it was fresh but the taste was just 'eh'. It was a nice time/dinner.
