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 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!

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.
