Cool little bar, is a grab place to grab some food and chill out within a busy bar. Also a good place to start the night.

I love the simplicity and cool atmosphere of this spot.
Great sandwich choices, full bar which I can't wait to try some evening.
Great friendly service. Recommend highly.

We've been to Coles once visiting LA and had a great experience. It's an old fashioned style place with a very warm atmosphere. All wood and old style decor inside makes you feel very comfortable even if the restaurant is crowded. To avoid the long line (it is definitely better to book your table) we sat at the bar and enjoyed the very pleasant conversation with the bartender.
The french dip sandwiches (we had the pork ones) were delicious and the spicy sweet potato fries crispy and tasteful.
Both food and experience thanks to the atmosphere are perfect!

I had the pastrami French Dip and it was very very good. They were clueless on how to make an Old Fashioned. Varnish (bar attached to restaurant) made their Old Fashioned different, but again clueless on how to make it. The drinks are so potent they will knock your socks off. Famous bar so fun to visit. No, did not see Don Draper.
