Utterly appalling customer service at Côte, which ended up with me paying $65 for the “privilege” of opening my bottle of wine and not having any food. Can’t recall an experience this bad in NYC, will not be back.
Wow, totally weird. I sure hope you didn’t pay at the bar for them to open up your bottle. Did you even get glasses and get to drink the wine at the bar? Or did you get charged to just open a bottle and have to leave?

I’ve never brought wine to Cote. Usually have had a set dinner course or some such that ends up being about 65–70/pp for food. And the grill is right on the table. The booth marble table is pretty big could fit 4-6 ppl and so much space, it’s not a tiny place like most nyc restaurants. Albeit I feel like they don’t have many tables
In the heart of flatiron, nomad. I’ve never had bad service here and I went on a weekend for dinner I think. That’s is pretty bad not to have been able to have the grilled steak with dinner and wine. Usually service is quick as you grill at the table. (After your note, I did look up the wine list. I may buy wine next time, they have some good bottles. I suspect they probably have/use good glasses too). I remember the plates being custom or matching the table setting last time.

Sorry you had that experience.
I opened one of our bottles and as we were waiting for our last party member (who was late), they cancelled our reservation, didn't tell us and informed me they didn't have another table for 1.5 hours. So.........effectively I paid $65 to open and drink the bottle. I was standing 5 feet from the host who didn't bother informing me of any of this. Their justification? But we sent a text to your 212 number! The equivalent of sending smoke signals to Mars.
As I was walking to another restaurant to get some food, got an email that my reservation at Cote was cancelled. LOL. I've eaten at Cote before, and the food is fine, but I'm definitely not returning. There are lots of options in NYC, especially in Flatiron.

sorry for the terrible cote experience. i went there maybe 2 years ago when they opened with all of that buzz. i was very unimpressed with the food. as we left our seats, i noticed that i had gum on my jeans thanks to the previous guests...and the staff didnt bother to clean the table completely. i was quite insulted and the staff just shrugged. i dont recall them doing anything to rectify the situation.

the food was just a hair above a korean bbq joint. ive forgotten about the place since my visit.

I was at Cote on Sunday night. It was our second time in the last six months, and everything was great.

Cote didn't do it for me, either. My very short note from 2+ years ago ...

Indian Accent $50
Food/flavors are very good, but by end of night felt a bit too heavy. We were more excited to return at beginning of the meal than the end. If was less pricey, would be more apt to return. Probably will return for a special occasion with others once. Despite a wide winelist, food can be spiced/spicy, so I personally would recommend a champagne etc. over the red burgundies etc. on offer. Cocktails are strong, but good, and I think my preferred route.
