"The food had no flavor the the spicy garlic fries had so much salt on them."
"$5 French dip sliders during happy hour is a deal."

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.

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.

Great place to relax. Weak on the big screen tvs for sports is a big drawback for me. I went there to watch the Dodger game and was disapointed. Great beer like the 805 on tap. Seating outside for smoking is adjacent to the bar, so convenient.

Ended up here for happy hour today! Great deals. French Dip Trio (turkey, pastrami, and roast beef) not salty, very simple, bread just the right thickness, not doughy or lots and lots of bread. Not greasy. Came with a side of tots or fries. Both are scrumptious. $8 Drinks: go with the Eastside $8 originally $11. Had two! Very refreshing and smooth. For those who like cucumber collins. Minty too!

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.

I've never actually had the food here but I love coming to the bar. The bartenders are always awesome, and the company is usually very cheerful. You can feel the history in here.
