Dessert was SPECTACULAR!!

(Dessert ONLY review)A friend of mine was giving me a tour of restaurants that she appreciates around her home. We stopped in for dessert & sidecars. My said the regular bartender was not there, but we tried the sidecar & it was BLAH. The dessert we picked was Strawberry panzanella. It had candied brioche, olive oil custard, w/ micro basil & saba. The strawberries were sweet! The combo of flavors was brilliant! My friends said they pride themself on fresh ingredients. From watching ...view morewhat was set out on other tables, it looked intriguing. The restaurant was dark & quiet, but full of what I am guessing were locals. It was midweek so, I believe that says alot about a place!view less

Share small plates with a fine glass of wine from around the world on the heated patio in the back! The food is excellent, the service personalized and the atmosphere feels very European. Make sure you save room for the Gianduja Creme Caramel for dessert - it's delightful.

Disrepectful Manager. Terrible Service!

i was overcharged by $428.00 and the restaurant mgr. whose name is Jeff told me that it was my problem and that I had to take it up with my bank myself. then he accused me of slander for saying that the restaurant had overcharged me. i sent him my bank statement to prove that there was in fact an overcharge of $428 but he did not care and hung up the phone on me. i cant believe that someone in hospitality would behave in this ill and disrespectful manner.

TERRIBLE time at A Cote

We went to A Cote last night hoping to celebrate my wife's promotion in style. Instead, we were treated to a never-ending disaster. To begin with, we had to ask for water three times before our waitress bothered to bring us some. We asked for a full, rich red wine to go with our food, and the wine she recommended was about as light as red wines come, and I had to fish out a small piece of cork floating in my glass. The pace of the meal was downright bizarre, with a half-hour plus g...view moreap between two of our appetizers. Several things we ordered never arrived at all, though our waitress seemed indifferent to this, shrugging and smiling. The quality of the food was generally good, but many items were not described correctly. All in all, a terrible and disappointing experience. If you want small plates, go to Cesar on Piedmont or Pizzaiolo instead!!view less

Overpriced, overseasoned, overhyped.

I've been to A Cote a few times, and have desperately hoped for a better experience each time, but frankly I just give up. The cocktails and atmosphere are nice (the cucumber cocktail is heavenly), and the curtained back patio has the potential to be a romantic summertime treat, but this in no way makes up for the neglectful service, mediocre to below-average plates, and inflated Rockridge price tag attached to the whole experience.

attentive, knowledgable service, wonderful flatbread, perfect carrot soup and moroccan meatballs

This french tapas restaurant is fantastic--great food, great service, interesting and confusing wine list, a bit noisy, but amazing food, especially the mussels with pernod and shallots

To be honest, not really that great

Pros: The atmosphere is nice, place looks hip but that is pretty much it. \r
Cons: Service. The waitress and staff want you out of there so they can serve the next round of diners. Price. This place is also pricey for the amount of food they serve you. \r
Overall, for a nice looking restaurant, there is definitely room for improvement.

Worst service I've ever encountered

My boyfriend and I wanted to have a drink at A Cote last Saturday. We arrived at about 10:45. We watched various staff members walk back and forth without making any eye contact with us, and after 5 minutes or so the hostess appeared and told us it would be a few minutes. A group of 4 came in soon thereafter, and we all stood in the doorway watching the staff bustle around empty tables. We could see open tables for one big and 2 small parties. Again, no staff members would look at...view more us- they were so busy doing whatever it was that they were doing, which was clearly not serving customers. After about 10 more minutes, my boyfriend stopped a passing waitress and she curtly said, ""The hostess will be with you shortly."" At that point we left. \r
I will NEVER go here again and whole-heartedly disrecommend it.
