Sunday late lunch for three, about $80 without alcohol. CLASSIC French bistro offerings, and we could have imagined being somewhere in the 6th. The menu is a bit confusing, with specials, then breakfast, then brunch, then lunch specials, then ala carte possibilities. I'm almost a...More

When walking into La Cote D'Or you are transported to France! The atmosphere is genteel; and the furnishings, from tables decorated beautifully to the handsome bar and desk just inside restaurant door, are resplendent. The food, raison d'être, is sumptuous. My husband, sister and I...More

I found the waiter pushing us to order more than we needed. As a result we had food and wine left at a considerable cost. Very heaving handed treatment of the soft shelled crabs masked the subtlety of this dish. Too bad ! Negative experience...More

No dress code; the men in our party were not wearing ties or jackets and we women were casually dressed (jeans), not out of place. The clientele seems a bit older and the atmosphere a bit stuffy, if you don't mind that.
