The dining experience at Cole's
The dining experience at Cole's was better than I and my dinner companion had expected. Albeit a bit noisy and cramped at first, the food and its presentation were very satisfying. I would certainly return to Cole's and I have told other friends to book a table as soon as possible.

We had grilled squid, a delicate roasted vegetable salad, a chickpea "panisee" and the roasted chicken. Everything was good, but I wouldn't say it was particularly distinctive. We are spoiled in New York to find this level of food often. Its a lovely, intimate space, and there are also a few tables in the bar area.

The food was great, although
The food was great, although not quite perfect - that's the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. I had the salmon, which was perfectly cooked and crispy on the edges; however, the swiss chard underneath it was bland and the great northern beans were considerably under-done. The service was excellent; our server couldn't have done anything better. I think he refilled my water glass every single time I took a sip (but not in an annoying way). The decor and overall feel were great, but the tables were way too close together. They're clearly trying to maximize the revenue by squeezing as many people in the restaurant as possible, but it just wasn't comfortable.

Cole's has a warm, magnetic ambiance. It's got great light and luxe feeling booths (my favorite!) with the feel of an expensive restaurant but it won't break your bank. Perfect for a date, girls night, or a place to bring your parents.
Love love love. One of my new neighborhood gems!

My First Visit
The waiter was very helpful and enthusiastic with his suggestions with things to eat. Service was pleasant and efficient. The side dishes were particular good and interesting. While I love duck mine as a bit too done and a bit too salty.

First time here!
They were extremely accommodating to my diet needs. The service was very good and the steak was fabulous. So far so good. At this point I would definitely recommend them. I live in the neighborhood and am happy to find a new place that's so good. A pleasant surprise. I hope it continues to be this good!

Its terrific, worth a stop in
Everything about Cole's exceeded my expectations, not easily done after so many years living in NYC. The staff was very attentive, gave us a terrific table and the whole experience was a pleasure. Food was a home run the entire time. My sister is a vegetarian and there were many options, plus the waiter was very flexible to make sure she was happy. We did go on the early side and it fills up very fast and it gets a nice buzzy energy going, but its not too much of a scene, which I no longer am interested in. Its just a lively restaurant for people that enjoy good food and drink and want to kick back for a bit. Its simple, be nice to others and you will get that in return, not just at Cole's, in general.

Great addition to the neighborhood
Cole's has become my new go-to place for dinner to catch up with friends or just have a one-on-one.
Great bar scene and fantastic dining room designed by Steve Gambrel add up to a wonderful experience.

Fabulous menu; all the standards
Fabulous menu; all the standards [calamari, salmon, chicken, steak]; but done with a twist and certainly not the standard meal. Top notch

Beautiful decor on a quiet Sunday
We went there for Sunday brunch. The decor was beautiful and the food was delicious and the vibe was quiet. Would try it again for lunch or dinner.

Greater interval between meals
The food was really delicious. The only problem is that they didn't allow a 10 minutes break between the meals, they were all served in a row. I didn't even had the chance to finish my cocktail before the entree... That is not nice!

Cole has a cool hip vibe
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.

Sane Place with Great Food/Ambience
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.
