A word from Cole's Greenwich Village
Inspired by the artistic scene of 1950’s Greenwich Village, Steven Gambrel designed the 94-seat space to evoke the decade that earned the neighborhood the romantic reputation it has to this day. Each one of the intimate rooms has its own distinct feel, incorporating retro and contemporary design elements. Burlap panels in the Dining Room are the backdrop for the art provided by charity partner ACRIA (AIDS Community Research Initiative of America) ranging from ’50s-era sketches to ’90s street art. The Café, situated between The Bottle Room and the Dining Room, is lined with wooden plank booths ideal for groups while The Bottle Room offers seating at the bar and high tables, and is lined with amber-toned panels reminiscent of the warm hues emanated from light hitting a whiskey bottle.Continued
Diner Reviews
  • "..at 9:00. We chose to eat in the bar area because the restaurant was so dead. Food was very disappointing."

  • "Good decor, buzzy atmosphere, popular and packed with positive people. No record of our booking though but table provided. Waiter as attentive as the number of diners allowed. Looked overworked and perhaps unsupported by his team in that I was offered a tumbler from which to drink my wine because wine glasses had run out! The menu is a little unclear and ambiguous. My choice, listed as squash spaghetti, was neither spaghetti squash vegetable as expected, nor contained visible squash, just plain wheat spaghetti with no sign of squash. Delicious though. My friends' choices of salmon and pork were well presented pieces of protein but could have benefitted from more accompanying vegetables. An enjoyable visit though. Recommended."

  • "I have eaten at Coles before a few times not long after it opened and loved the atmosphere, the convenience to my home, and the food wasn't bad at all. Now maybe there's a new chef or NO chef. The food was lackluster, under seasoned, and just generic. The mushroom risotto had absolutely no flavor AT ALL, the Brussels sprouts were tepid and dull, and the cheesecake, honestly my dog could make a better cheesecake. it was sweet. That's all one can say. If David Rabin is still the owner he needs to look at the kitchen. All his other enterprises are flawless so how is Coles slipping through the cracks?"

  • "It was a super brunch! Everyone was very happy with what they ordered. The staff were very accommodating to our little group. The waiters are true professionals in the way they pour the wine and make suggestions, as opposed to that all-too-familiar sweet bumbling type so often encountered at other Village restos. Big plus, no annoying loud music in the background so we were able to enjoy our conversation. The egg dishes are nicely done, and the fries are presented in the cute cups one finds in Belgian spots. Sunlight poured through the large windows and played beautiful colors over the amber bottle display. I mean, why this restaurant doesn't have a long line on the street baffles me. Coles is a true find in the West Village. Loved it! Go!"

  • "Went with 3 colleagues, the restaurant has so much character and charm. The service and food were first class. I would recommend this great find to anyone who loves a neighborhood restaurant with incredible character."

  • "...and enjoy your meal. This is a lovely restaurant with good food and a rare thing these days but a place where you can actually hear what your dining companion is saying. The main dining room is nicely decorated, cozy and intimate. The menu is straightforward and the food well prepared. I recommend Coles."

  • "Given the night the place was empty. It was therefore really quiet. The service was friendly and quick. The food was good but not great. The beet salad was made with lemon rather than vinegar, an excellent choice. The duck breast and the hamburger were good but not great."

  • "Our waiter disappeared and the restaurant was empty so no excuses. The french fries were soggy. There are many other neighborhood places that get it right."

  • "Based on the hype and this restaurant being on Urban Daddy's current hot list, we were disappointed with the flow of service and lack of organized timing. The table next to us had to practically beg for bread because their orders were taking too long to come out. Likewise, so did ours...our server was hard to track down because he was busy attending to other tables. He was nice, but didn't do a great job explaining several items on the menu, e.g., my "normal" size appetizer that he said would be fine as an entree was the opposite. For the prices, overall disappointing service. I doubt I will return."

  • "Noise level was normal and food was great. Good selection of brunch options and friendly staff. And a great Bloody Mary. I'd go back."

  • "Maybe they need better management? There is definitely a chance for this great location/decor restaurant but we were not happy with the horrible service and mediocre food. Sorry."

  • "Good food, though some items not served to temperature. Attentive, informative, friendly service. Nice ambience, but little contrived/sterile."

  • "I've been to this place before when it was packed and very noisy. But went on Monday night and it was very clam and much easier to have a conversation."
