Nice place to have a drink. They need to sort out the inside though as it instantly smells of toilets when you walk in! Quite off putting.

This is it while in DTLA! It has survived and is great! To me it is all about the bar! Get Leandro to make your drinks Friends are in at least once a week for outstanding drinks! Get the beef dip with the atomic pickles! Don't miss out! Parking is at the corner!

I never knew that I could fall in love with a sandwich. Well, I did. I fell in love with the beef and blue cheese. The place is the best! I paired my sandwich with the mac & cheese. Super tasty! My friend got the garlic fries and they were to die for!!! Just a heads up, the fries are... More

Ate here on our first (and only) night in LA on the recommendation of the Rough Guide. Funky place - allegedly the home/inventor of the French dip sandwich which we tried - wonderful. Excellent selection of craft beers.

I went to this restaurant in downtown LA with my husband and daughters, for suggestion of my daughters who lives in the city. She was right... the place is charming and it has great sandwiches which are to be accompanied by a French dip and what they call the atomic mustard. The mustard is called like that because it' suppose... More

I came to Cole's with friends on a visit to LA. The interior is dark but the decor is very interesting. We had a booth at the side of the restaurant with a view of the 'secret bar'. Service was good at times but at points it was hard to get the attention of the waitress as she chatted to... More

Stumbled upon Coles by accident. We had hoped to eat at another nearby place but it was closed. Coles was a less than suitable substitute. The decor is the nicest part of this restaurant. The host was preoccupied with his cell phone and only looked up to seat us when it became obvious we weren't going to leave. I guess... More

Just shame they don't have a good reason... More

Cole's has a great friendly atmosphere. The sandwiches were great and if hot mustard is your thing Cole's has got a winner! The garlic fries were very tasty. I tried the Bourbon Pecan Pie and it was delicious.

Best old fashioned cocktail I've ever had.... And I've had a lot! Garlic fries to die for. I've since recommended the place to at least 5 visitors
