Further Information

French culinary paradise can of course be found on Paradise Street at Liverpool One, where the Liverpool branch of Côte Bistro serves classics of the French kitchen. It’s fair to say that this Côte Bistro is slightly more contemporary in terms of decor than its brothers and sister up and down the UK, but you can still expect French elegance in abundance. As well as food that’s prepared using fine, locally sourced ingredients, of course, all inspired by the unmistakeable Bistros of Paris.

Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Côte Bistro will never skimp on authenticity. If dining from the a la carte menu then consider starting with warm beetroot salad or some traditional French onion soup. For a light main, the butternut squash risotto and the spinach and mushroom crepes are a treat. If you’ve more of an appetite, however, then the classic French beef bourguignon is a must try. As is the roast duck breast with potato gratin and the fish parmentier. All will leave a smile on your face. As we have said, for French cuisine in the heart of Liverpool, Côte Bistro is the go-to.

We have been to Cote Bistro in London and York so decided to go to Cote Bistro Liverpool as we have enjoyed our experiences at the other restaurants. This is as good as the others, the staff were all very attentive and always on hand to answer any questions, the food was perfect and the atmosphere was great. We were in a group of six and our table was booked for 6:00 pm but the place was lively and looked full so I would say it looks like you would have to book a table otherwise you would be turned away. Overall we couldn't find fault with anything and we all left happy after having an enjoyable evening.

The restaurant was very relaxing and had a lovely outside seating area, sadly too cold to make use of. The restaurant was able to accommodate us 30 minutes earlier than booked and we were very pleased with our visit. The menu was amazing and the midweek special deal was an absolute bargain for such quality food. All starters and main meals were cooked beautifully and all tasted amazing, which generally never happens when we go out, so this was a huge relief. The deserts too were so very tasty. The waiters were efficient and very polite and we will most definitely visit again with no hesitation to sample the A la carte menu when we next visit Liverpool.

This branch of code is located in Liverpool one very close to the Albert dock, the layout of the restaurant is delightful and well appointed as it was an exceptionally hot day we were able to dine outside and it was very reminiscent of dining in Paris. We were attending a conference in Liverpool so I booked a table for lunch. We chose to set menu. July’s set menu once again at is absolutely fantastic, we will welcomed and the staff were very friendly and helpful, and has always the food exceptionally well presented and really delicious. There is no doubt about it the site luncheon menu and early evening menu offers exceptional value for money.

We were given a warm welcome. Our soup arrived eventually but was barely warm. This was swapped and the staff were apologetic. I am a vegetarian who does not eat cheese and once I was given the vegetarian menu was able to choose the puy lentil dish (without egg) which I really enjoyed. My partner had steak and fries. This could have looked more appetising with some garnish. The staff were really pleasant and adjusted the bill so that we were charged for 2 specials. We were seated near the door. At a few points during our meal it was difficult to hear each other due to the clattering in the coffee prep area.

We went on st paddys day before a theatre show, was a lovely meal (good value as had from special fixed priced menu) and staff were very helpful. As the was only two of us we were sat near the back of resturant, the only complaint was the back door is used by staff so the was bit of draft and a loud noise when this is closed. I think the is only two tables effected by it so would just ask to be sat at the front of the resturant next time

Very disappointed with my visit, my friend and I had the daily menu, she opted for a salad which had to be changed, soaked in dressing. I chose calamari, very dry, but I accepted it without comment. The real disappointment was the main course, breast of chicken, I have had better on a BBQ, totally dried up as were the accompanying potatoes. We asked for a short break between courses, I suspect they were prepared and held until we told the waiter we were ready as these arrived almost immediately, certainly not sufficient time for them to be freshly cooked. Staff as usual were all very pleasant, but we went to eat , I will think twice about returning.

Staff are always welcoming and helpful. Daily / Evening menu , starters are all very good, I have difficulty making a choice, however the main course is very dull, I chose sea bream, very tasty, more tapas size, this was served on some kind of beans, reminded me of butter beans, no flavour and looked like a squashy mass, quite inedible . My friend chose the chicken dish, tasty, but why coat in breadcrumbs,though it did make it a more filling dish. Need to have a more robust dish as a main course.

We really enjoyed our meal, It was delicious and the staff are both friendly and helpful, despite being very busy. The one and only negative thing I can say - and it is a very minor thing - the Frozen Berry dessert , which we love, is a huge amount better when served on a warm plate. They did use warm plates a while ago, but they seem to have gone back to using cold plates.

This branch of Cote is located very close to the Albert dock and the shopping precinct in Liverpool one. I was in Liverpool with friends for a meeting and we dined there for an early evening meal, we chose the set menu as there was something suitable for everybody. The service was excellent and the quality of the food first class and delicious apart from the Liverpool weather that day we had an excellent evening.

Lovely evening as always. Fabulous food - friendly & attentive staff, without being too overbearing. My friend and I were having a very long overdue catch up and as such took ages to order (too busy chatting!) and this wasn't a problem. We were assured you were in no rush for the table so we stayed all evening! ( there was A LOT of wine.....) Thank you so much. A total delight.

Our party of 4 were welcomed and offered a choice of table. We chose a well positioned booth. The staff were able to accommodate gluten free dishes for one of our party without problem. All of us greatly enjoyed our meals and the Lagarde house wine was excellent as always. It was the first visit for two of our party and they will certainly return. A most enjoyable meal.

I honestly could not fault anything about Cote, the food was delicious and great value for money, it arrived in very good time, tasted amazing and was overall very impressive! The staff were lovely and could not help enough and the restaurant itself is extremely welcoming and a pleasure to be in! This was my second visit to Cote bistro and I will most certainly be going back!

Amazing service, amazing food, amazing ambience and amazing price! It was my mother in laws birthday and as a surprise, they had taken the effort to place a birthday helium ballon on the table when we arrived and a hand written card from all the team at cote! It made her day! Thank you. Stunning service. One of our favourite places in the whole of Liverpool.

We booked online on the recommendation of a friend while we were visiting Liverpool. It was a good choice. Friendly staff showed us to our table and took our order. Great choice of French cuisine style dishes and plenty of gluten free options which is important for us. Fine food served by efficient staff. We will look out for the Côte franchise again.

When we arrived we were given a choice of tables. I had recently joined the Cote reward scheme which entitled us to a few bottle of wine and I was pleased to find thatcH didn't even have to ask about it because it was immediately offered to us. The food was excellent, portions were just the right size to be satisfying but not too much. Service was efficient but unobtrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

excellent staff food and wine . The greeting was pleasant and was seating where we wanted, the choice of foods where variable and the portion sizes were adequate. they were hot , tasty and most enjoyable . My hubby had the calamari started and I had the pate both plentiful and tasty. I then had the chicken grille and my husband had the burger very moist and tasty. overall an excellent experience.
