Dining at La Cote D'Or with friends on a recent Friday evening was a a wonderful experience!!! We were promptly greeted at the door & escorted to our table by a waiter with a big smile. The attention to detail was outstanding. The restaurant has character, warmth and charm that diners typically don't experience in many other area restaurants. We... More

First time visit and I will definitely return. The food and service was superb and server Manuel was outstanding. I noticed the location in Falls Church French Café La Cote D'or (6876 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA 22213) is the same location as Westmoreland St.. The place was neat and clean with upscale service. Everything is close corners but comfortable in... More

Been here many times over the years - my second favorite french bistro. It is still very good but may have slipped just a little because of expanded business from the many hi-rise condos around it. Nevertheless still well worth a visit however!

The food and service is excellent. The food is prepared fresh daily. The menu is simple. You cannot go wrong with the 3 course meal. Be sure to order ahead of time.

The three-course fixed price meal is served from 5 PM to 6:30 PM. Orders must be placed by 6:30 PM. Essentially, it is a two-course meal (appetizer and main course) at full price with a free dessert. The bread basket had a wonderful crusty bread. We had the marinated asparagus and the avocado salad -- both well done. We each... More

Lot's of menu choices covering price range from moderate to expensive. Has a good variety of price-fixe dinners before 6:30PM (you MUST order before 6:30). Price-fixe includes some items off the main menu, as well as some that are unique.Has a small parking lot and nearby garage. Excellent service, excellent food. We had a party of 7 on this visit...

It is unassuming but great! Each dish was better than the next and not as pricey as many quality competing French restaurants.

We had been to this restaurant many years ago. But moved out of the area. A friend took us there to celebrate our 43rd Anniversary. French based cuisine. Amazing that the restaurant has not been taken out by all the condo builders, but so glad it is still there. Three of us each having something different. My spouse and I... More

La Cote D'Or Cafe is an excellent little French restaurant hidden in an unassuming little building on the unattractive intersection jumble of I-66, US-29 Lee Hwy and Washington Blvd on the very border of Arlington and Falls Church. The food is simply excellent and very French. The appetizer salads and soups were ok. De pepper steak was deliciously succulent, the... More
