I have been here a few times for lunch and each time I am impressed with the quality of the food, and the friendliness of the staff. The Prix Fix menu is a very good buy. The Lunch menu is extensive from sandwiches to salads to full meals. My friends have sampled so many items and we have never been... More

This restaurant has been a long-term favorite for rendezvous with my family, friends and business colleagues. It was so sad when Monsieur Campet passed away: he was always beautifully dressed and welcomed people with warmth and his exquisite manners. Also a long-term favorite, but with a very different feel, was La Mediterranee in Great Falls headed by Chef Jacques Imperato.... More

This traditional French restaurant has been in its present location for more than 30 years, with one ownership change, but the quality seems consistent. The service seemed a bit inexperienced on our recent visit but a small issue was resolved quickly and quite satisfactorily by the manager. Our table sampled everything from the steak tartar to the bouillabaisse to the... More

My wife and I went to celebrate the birth of a grandchild Saturday evening and it was busy. La Cote D'Or isn't huge but it has always delivered well. You can imagine being in a small village in the Loire Valley or the Left Bank. From the first flute of champagne to the last cup of fresh coffee, the food... More

We've been long time diners at all of Chef Jacques Imperato's restaurants he's owned over the years here in Arlington and Great Falls, Virginia. Our best Christmas present for 2016 was Chef Jacques becoming the new owner of Cote d'Or in Feb '16 ... (after the sad and far-too-premature passing of the previous owner, Raymond Campet). With Cote d'Or's nearby... More

Ample street paid parking and lots of cute local stores to wander through Staff is authentically French as is the decor, food and wines Service is impeccable. White table... More

We went to Coq D'or for a romantic Valentine's dinner last night and was SO impressed! We've been there several times in the past, but last night was exceptional - especially the meats. Wonderful veal chop, perfectly cooked. Of course, the desserts were delicious, too. Add great service and the evening was perfect. Thanks!!

We had a hankering for French cuisine, and coincidentally came here for the Restaurant Week special celebration. Well worth this visit! The restaurant offered a special fixed price menu of extremely good value, and a superb introduction to the wider a la carte menu.

A nice place to celebrate without breaking the bank. Food was excellent, service attentive and the wine list was very reasonably priced. The pate was very, very good and was perfect to share as a first course. Steak au poivre (black pepper corns and cream reduction) outstanding. A hearty stew (very bistro) was perfect for this cold evening. Try the... More
