Amazing and extremely unique! Art deco everything all original from when the place 1st was build. Sundays you will find Maxwell DeMille's vintage night with live band and entertainment to the jazz Era years. The food although is a bit expensive is well worth to have! Be sure to make reservations or call ahead in case they are closed for private event the they host from private, corporate or film Hoots as well. Most memorable scene that comes to mind is on the "Pretty Woman" film dinner scene. Beside the it can be seen on numerous other films. Bruce all mighty, and several music videos and commercials as well.

The place is huge, the cram tourists in from organized tours, party events and try to get them out as fast as possible. Nothing of what came to the table was good. Everything (except the bread) was greasy

I went to have dinner and the food was very poor. Service is not that good. No Parking only valet parking - and good luck, it appeared our vehicle was not safe to leave alone in their unsecured lot. Downtown Los Angeles is creepy. I would not recommend this to a friend.

The closest Gatsby-esque moment I've experienced. Stunning ladies in their flapper attire being twirled around by gents sporting a bow-tie on a Sunday night. Live 20s band singing, playing the piano, dancing, etc. That feeling that you're in another era was priceless. Right when you walk in you wouldn't believe that this is in downtown LA. You don't have to pay for dinner to enjoy this. Sunday nights (with cover) they'll have live music and a lounge upstairs in the back to rest your feet after hours of swing dancing. DINNER: we got a great seat with an amazing server. It's a one table per night seating (so the table is all yours that whole night). Food was decent, the risotto was my favorite. Alcohol was ok. You're paying for the experience and the great service. Evertime we stood up to explore/take pics/dance, we saw the server refold our napkin. I've only seen people do that at club33 and CUT. If you still want to enjoy the 20s after dinner, I recommend walking over to Varnish. They have live 1920s music as well. R.Gadget suggested this place to my bf. Thanks Gadget!!!

When you go downtown LA and you see all the old buildings, you wonder what it must have been like in the old days. I understand for you Easterners and Europeans, 80 years ago isn't all that long ago. But here in SoCal that was a while ago. When you walk into Cicada you are taken back to the 20s or 30s and you see what what intricate workmanship looks like. It's a delight to be there. The food was good and the service terrific. You have to stop by sometime to enjoy a complete experience of yester-year. Oh and the music is often incredible and from the old days also.

Went to the Cicada Club for Valentine's Day. Live music was great! Food was delicious. Service was, well- horrible, but it was a really busy night and I'll definitely be returning to give them another chance since everything else was wonderful.
