What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.1

Côte is a Korean barbecue place in Flatiron that looks kind of a like a nightclub and serves some high-quality beef. They also do a great prix fixe.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Not Michelin Star worthy.
It was all good (food and service) until they finished cooking and basically wanted us out of there. We had the butchers feast and for 4 people and it was very enjoyable during the cooking period.
I would have appreciated that the restaurant would just tell us they had another booking behind us or that there was a time limit. Rather than doing that, someone came over and just started clearing plates and took away my plate and utensils when I said I was still working on it. They came over once every 5min to ask to clear plates when there was still quite a bit of food on the table. Eventually we gave up and gave in. Then they gave us the bill and then took away the water.

Oh yeah, and don’t bother with the new bar downstairs unless you want to pay 20USD for a gin and tonic. Felt ripped off.

Be prepared to not be able to cook you meat on your own or maybe not how you like it. We were 3 ppl at our table and each of us like it cooked different ways. Our waitress got angry several times if we cooked it ourselves or moved it “without her permission”. If you are okay with that then this is the korean bbq for you. Otherwise good taste and value. You will definitely be very full after eating here.

the food was divine and the service was impeccable. loved the sommelier there as well. we had the steak omakase and it was worth every cent.
if I had one note for this place to consider, it would be the bathrooms -- they should be cleaned often or have an attendant there, as it's loaded with foot traffic and should be kept up!

It was a wonderful experience. We got the 125$ per person feast with the A5 Wagyu beef. I first thought that we were not going to have enough but it was plentiful. We had extra leftovers. There was 8 different kind of meats . Of course the A5 Wagyu was the best and tastiest of all . They saved the best for last . The cold noodle bowl was refreshing and tasty

Don’t know where the one Michelin star came from but it does not deserve it. There is no chef other than to make the salads. The waitress cooks for you and she burned our veggies. The meat was mediocre, not great. For the money, actually less, there are much better Korean BBQ places in NYC. Also, the table behind us was extremely intoxicated and rowdy and the establishment did nothing to ask them to quiet down, they just kept bringing them the Jack Daniels based drinks that they all ordered. One Michelin star restaurants are usually classier than this place. Go if you like but set the bar low for your experience.

First a steak house, then a Korean restaurant. The meat selection of Cote is by far the best out of any Korean barbecue restaurant- in fact, much better than most steak houses. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to suggest once they know your thoughts. Pricing is honest, yes the steaks are expensive but the side dishes are inclusive and so is water. Highly recommend.

bland food. cote is to korean food as benihana is to japanese. something that would make a person not interested in anything but unseasoned meat and a carb feel that they had an authentic foreign food experience.

Second visit. First timers probably get the Butchers Feast, but I recommend ordering a la carte. It is a little more expensive but you get the exact cuts you want and instead of unnecessary sides, you can splurge and get some A5 Wagyu.

I have been before to Cote and had a great meal but spent a fortune...this time we got the tasting menu for $58./person...the meat was very good but the sides were just ok that came with it...plus, I think the atmosphere is cold and extremely noisy and the entrance feels like you are going into a disco...sorry to say but I do not think I will return.. for the money spent with drinks etc., it still costs $100./person.

Could only get an 11:15 reservation days in advance and even then they made us wait 30 more minutes. Wouldn’t accommodate a seafood allergy and were overall rude. Food wasn’t the best, especially for the price but the aesthetic was nice.

Incredibly beautiful take on Korean barbecue. The meats were no doubt incredible quality. However, the side dishes were nothing extremely unique or to write home about with the exception of the egg souffle. Service was great but somewhat impersonal... the server didn't really even introduce each cut of meat.. which I'm assuming is the whole point of doing an omakase. Either way it was still a fantastic experience.

The staff made us feel welcomed the moment we walked in. We let the staff cook for us and everything came out perfect!

We felt bit rushed when the wine was served before our dinner and we barely had time to enjoy our cocktail.

Overall, it was a great dining experience and we plan to come back in a month with family visiting from out of town.

Ridiculously loud. Overpriced. I can’t believe they have a Michelin Star. Have been to mostly all of the best and above average spots in Manhattan and this ranks as one of the most underwhelming experiences. Very disappointing from ambiance, service, menu. Experience was like a converted pool hall turned overpriced Asian steakhouse. AVOID.

We're party of three. We went three women two adults, one child . We ordered two sets of steak and one cote steak , one beef tartare and a glass of wine. But it came out wrong, so it served 4. We left a lot of food and had to pay a lot of money.
And it wasn't impressive enough to get a Michelin One Star.
In Korea, restaurants of that level are common.
