The best part about this place is that it's next to The Association Bar. There are often transients that stride back and forth on the side walk, but security does a fair job of keeping them off the customers. There's a full bar and plenty of indoor seating, but I'm typically a fan of eating on the patio regardless, even if it is a sidewalk. I stopped by here to throw back a few beers to start a night of bar hopping. -=- Pastrami French Dip -=- It was smaller than I thought, but then again I need to get The Hat out of my mind, because the amount you get there is just outrageous. Exhale. Ok. Switching gears. Visiting Cole's, I had actually hoped for more flavorful pastrami. Dipping it in the au jus gave it the flavor I was looking for but to the soft baked bread. I was just unimpressed at this item as a whole. -=- Garlic Fries -=- I'm a fan of garlic fries wherever I go. The more garlicky the better and this place packed it on. It was more clovey garlic than buttery garlic, but I was ok with that. I can't have drenchy butter with everything I eat, so this was a good departure into the lighter side of garlic fries. The next time I am around, I will be trying the bacon mac & cheese. It will probably be soon, because The Association is calling my name again.

Cole's is ok... I had low exceptions for this place because I heard it's meh. The drinks aren't disappointing. It's the food that's not that impressive. The table I sat at wasn't that great either. I was there for my friends going away party and the table they were at had only one way to come in and out. So if someone at the end wanted to go to the bathroom then everyone in that row had to move.

today is VETERANS DAY 2013 after a appointment tried the restaurant usually go to other beef deep up the streer y we tried COLES. The place was not to crowded but got busier. we set in a booth for over 15 mintues until we were told to order at the bar. placed our order and stayed at the bar. since it was not busy we told bartender we usually go to san Francisco and that irish coffee is made great at Buena Vista and we tried Coles it was ok. It was Happy Hour so we got the special sandwich and fries and some of the drinks special prices it was all ok. You have to get a token for the restroom which was ok but my husband came out so mad!!! NO TOILET PAPER OR PAPER TOWELS in mens room and he was upset that he had to tell someone. A girl manager said l I don't use mens room so I don't know its out of paper. That was not the problem who checks on this??? If someone in either bathroom is out this is a bad way to leave a restaurant after having spent good money so this can happen any place but they should check it out more often to keep patrons supplied

Cole's is a throwback to how you imagine DTLA as it was in its heyday. There aren't many places in America these days where you can get a genuine Sazerac. Cole's has it and it's fantastic. Coles claims to have invented the French dip sandwich. I believe it. It' is SO tasty. You should also try their grilled cheese, the bacon mashed potatoes, and Cole's Slaw (get it?). The food is great. Drinks are stiff and tasty. I went here at least twice a month when I lived downtown, and I love Cole's.

We came to Cole's and found out they offer happy hour all night Tuesday. The kitchen was closed by the time we got there, but they still served fries and tots. Did I mention they're $1 during HH?! I got my usual Old Fashioned for $6! That is the cheapest in downtown LA that I've seen. Our bartender was super cool! Draft beers, Manhattans, and well are $5 Cheers! Cheers!

They took much time to make deep sandwich. Different from Phillips original. I paid sandwich but didn't take. It must be my wrong but too much time and not enough service. In this time Phillips wins.
