La Cote D'Or Ratings and Reviews
Lovely experience and ambiance for a Saturday brunch with family. Menu options varied and each guest enjoyed their choices. However, one guest asked for "no cheese" when placing his order and received cheese in his dish. Another requested and addition to her salad and did not receive it. The waiter indicated he had not heard the request/s and was appropriately apologetic. We will return though will be clearer with wait staff when requesting alternatives when ordering.
We met with some friends who were visiting from Delaware. They are partial to French food; so we settled on this restaurant for dinner. The food was wonderful and the service was perfect. There was a parking garage which helped, as the traffic at 6:45 pm was awful.
This was our first outing to LaCoteD'Or since the new owner took over. We knew the original owners and had several special occasion family events at the restaurant. We were saddened when we learned of Ramon's death and did not know what to expect with the turnover. However, we were delighted to see that high standards and delectable food continue to dominate. We definitely will make LaCoteD'Or a special occasion place in the future.
Nice to rediscover Chef Jacques of previous owner of Mediterranee Restaurant (Great Falls). We loved visiting Mediterranee and missed it, when it was closed. It was great pleasure to dine at La Côte d'Or Café and enjoy wonderful food. Everything on menu is great and you will not go wrong. The ambience and service is just like good old Mediterranee Restaurant . Friendly and welcoming staff with visits from the chef. It is like visiting a friend for dinner.
Must visit and enjoy!
La Cote D'or consistently delivers on a terrific dining experience. We shared a chacuterie platter, and it was just the right amount of appetizer food. The lamb was amazing as a main course as was the scallops and risotto. Service is terrific, the presentation is what you would expect. Thank you La Cote D'or for another great dining experience!
One of our favorite places! Waiter suggested a wine by the glass that I hadn't tried, and was kind enough to bring a taste first, which allowed me to try it, but then order something I liked better. Pea soup was wonderful - light and smooth with great taste. Scallops were delicious. Hubby liked his plentiful salad and the halibut dish. The raspberries caramel were just that -- warm raspberries, placed artistically stem-side down to fill the shallow dish, in warm caramel sauce (not creme caramel).
Although a little pricy because of the small portions, the food was very good. A nice selection of wines and a kitchen that was very accommodating to my date who has a few allergies. The only drawback was the noise level...it was very loud and I found that I had to ask my date several times to repeat herself. Having said all that, I'd definitely go here again.
This was our first visit to La Cote D'Or. we happened to be in Arlington and was looking for an interesting restaurant to try.
The food was delicious! We had the sandwich of the day that had a combination of meats and additional item which gave it an interesting and unique flavor. It was very good! The other entre was Quiche Loraine with a side salad. The quiche crust was reminiscent of puff pastry and the filling was delicious with a lot of ham chunks. The only slight downfall it is was just a tad over baked. It could have be a little less brown in the top. But, that didn't detract from the quiche. The accompanying salad was plain but had a wonderful creamy and gently seasoned salad dressing. The salad was garnished with a lightly marinated carrot shavings. Our soup was a vegetable with broth soup with plenty of vegetables with a slight anise touch. Finally, the bread was fresh with a crispy crust and soft, flavorful bread.
We will definitely visit La Côte d'Or again for a lighter meal and dessert! Haven't had Floating Island in over 30 years! We would recommend it to friends also.
We took advantage of the Early Bird Prix Fixe menu and had the DR to ourselves for a while early on Saturday. It filled up as our meal progressed, but noise level stayed very comfortable since most tables were 2 or 4. Delicious French food, and attentive, capable service, but not pretentious. French vocal music is a nice, unobtrusive background. Their special deals are making this our "go-to" nice place when cooking at home is too much. And they are very creative in how they wrap up food you take home!
Though I would never have guessed from the outside that looks like a diner, once we entered we found a lovely small restaurant, European cuisine that is nicely prepared. Interesting menu with different meals than the standard American fare. Presentation of the food was well done Service was excellent and they were very attentive to any requests.
Can't wait to return - there were many dishes that I want to try
We had a lovely Restaurant Week Brunch on a Sunday afternoon. There were quite a few options to choose from. The dining room was decorated very nicely with fresh flowers and was busy but not too loud or uncomfortable.
We had a vegetable soup and house salad, fresh bread and entrees of Quiche Lorraine with a side salad and Rainbow Trout sautéed with an almond butter sauce. All very good.
There was barely room for dessert, but we had a few bites of an apple tart and creme brûlée which were both yummy. We had fresh coffee, served in our own mini pot accompanied with a chilled pewter creamer decanter. Cute!
Service was good and we enjoyed our meal without feeling rushed. We definitely will be back.
