Cafe' Cordiale has closed. It's was a great place for dining and then around 9:00, with the press of a button, a wall would move and voila, a stage appeared. It will be missed :(

All these years, all those performances and now the end is near. With about a month left Cafe' Cordiale closes it's doors as the long time owners are ready to relax and move on with their lives. For me this has been a great local venue with above average food to enjoy with the entertainment. My all time favorite show... More

I celebrated my birthday at Cafe Cordiale. This was my first visit and it won't be the last. The food and the service was great. After dinner, we listened to Masta and The Edge of Soul. The night was quite entertaining. People of all ages were dancing and have a great time. I definitely would recommend Cafe Cordial for a... More

Every trip to CC is a special occassion because you always get treated like you are their special guests. The food & service is always excellent. The setting is elegant. They never rush you so you can make a party out of every meal. The prices are very fair. Make a reservation if you don't want to be disappointed. They... More

The room is quite small and the setting nothing special ... Small bar and just a room filled with tables and chairs , some Christmas decor around . The menu seems simple enough with a smattering of favorites ...at very reasonable pricing ... And this is the third time I have been there in years , but every time they... More

I go to Cafe Cordiale when I visit LA because they consistently have good live music most nights of the week with no cover charge. The food is good too, although I usually go for drinks since the music starts at 9-10 pm. Would be great if the had a dance floor because sometimes people just stand up in from... More

I was introduced to Cafe Cordiale about 4 years ago and I am addicted. The best live music in town. Blues, jazz and up to date music with a twist. Packed house all the time. Malta and Mystique are a house staple and will never always be entertained with their music. A must see on any Friday or Saturday night.... More

The owner is a wonderful woman who takes a personnal interst in her customers and you always feel welcome there. The food is "clean" using all fresh ingredients, wonderful fish dishes, superb meats and delicious appetizers. The bartenders know how to... More

A wonderful restaurant to enjoy sandwiches to full course meals. The service is very friendly and the ambiance is warm. The prices are reasonable. There is live entertainment on the weekends to add to a nice evening out.

Horrible experience in this restaurant. Had a large party for a birthday at 9:30 so my wife and I already ate like normal people in America around 7 and planned to sit down for some drinks and late night appetizers. Sat down to find out we will be charged regardless of whether we eat or not. And if we decided... More
