Where do I even begin? You guys all need to try them out during Happy Hour! They have various selections in regards to chili oil tots to their yummy french dips. The decor is definitely a blast from the past, but that's not a bad thing. Definitely a great place to eat during HH. But please be safe cause skid row is around the corner.

If you search for 30s jazz, old school style and are a fool for flavor this place won't disappoint. The place is dark, cool, and stylish. The drinks are fantastic. The food.... well, bar food from the 20s. But everything screams escape. If you are from out of town, this is an experience.

There are two French dip go to spots in LA... Cole's and Phillipe's. Personally, I like Cole's better, that's just me. Go on a Tuesday, they have happy hour all day on food and drinks, best way to try a little bit of everything there.

Cole's should not be missed. Excellent old-style cocktails, and ridiculously good comfort food. The ambiance here is not to be beaten, if you like wood, dim lighting and booths. Gotta say though... I think I prefer the sandwiches at Philippe's. But Mickey Cohen and Charles Bukowski can't be wrong.

This place really took me back. Weird thing about me is that I inner transfer from the past to present not very frequently but last time this power took me to 1908 to the opening of coles. I saw Cole, himself cutting the ribbon, he looked very elegant. Everybody was excited for this new sandwich dip from France. Nobody's ever tried it. But I met someone special to me and her name was Martha. Classy lady and I fell in love with her. I went up to tell her and the rest was history. Coles sandwiches are the best. The atmosphere is delightful and the apps holy cow.

Never disappointed when I visit. Everything on the menu is prepared very well. No frills, nothing fancy, just good, simple and flavorful food. My recommendations are the lamb dip, the spicy garlic fries and the creamed spinach. The pies are also delicious. If you drink alcohol, their cocktails are absolutely divine. Very old school, prepared expertly and with great flair. Parking can be challenging, but there are public parking garages on the surrounding blocks. Enjoy! Come hungry, leave satiated.

The good is very good. Service is excellent. I'm highly satisfied. I go there especially for the drink called "old fashioned". Nobody else comes close to making them like Coles.

Wow! It was my last night in LA and we were trying to visit at least one legendary LA restaurant everyday. So it's Sunday night and we were headed down to Olvera St. and Phillipe's for a French dip. After taking a look into the window, I turned to my friend and said let's try this other place Cole's instead. Turned out to be a genius move, as Cole's impressed us at every turn. From the historical plaques of the notorious celebrities who used the urinal before you to the comfortable dark booths, and our friendly server in a crisp white button-up and black tie named John, we felt like we were in a different era. The old school bartender who expertly prepared our Bloody Mary(with atomic pickle) and Old Fashioned, probably would shutter at being referred to as a mixologist, mixed the best drinks of our trip. The prime rib and pastrami dips were awesome. The horseradish mustard opened up my sinuses that had been bugging me all week. There were some amazing sounding pies, but we didn't have room. Our stellar server John invited us to the speakeasy in the back for a nightcap, but we had to be up early to fly back to Chicago. He was kind enough to give me a Cole's casino chip good for a free Beef Dip on my next visit to LA. I will absolutely be back, and on my first night next time, not the last.
