I had my first date with my fiancé at this restaurant during one of their club nights, and it was an amazing ambiance! We came back tonight, for a work function, and everything was amazing. It's very quiet on non-club nights. The building is stunning, and all of our meals were wonderful.

Drinks are reasonably priced

Great place for a drink with a date, a few friends, or even a small party. Nice atmosphere, something a little different than most places in the city. Drinks are reasonably priced.

A fun evening in downtown Los Angeles Art Deco Treasure

I went to the Sunday night show at the Cicada Club to see Richard Halpern's Roaring Twenties Revue. First, the food. I recommend the scallop and risotto appetizer. It was a wonderful combination of flavors and textures. For the entree I enjoyed the lamp chops. Cooked just right -- juicy and and delicious. Second, the entertainment. This night featured Halpern's 1920's era band with a fantastic dance number by special guest Chester Whitmore (one of the top tap dancers in the country). Later the Cicada Club's elevator boy Kid Watson performed a surprisingly good dance routine. Quite a few people were dressed in 1920's attire that added to the atmosphere. You really have to see this for yourself. Nothing like it. Great fun.

The worst show ever.

Last night was hands down the worst Cicada club event I think I have ever been to. There were problems aplenty. First off, the singers were both horrible, Ginger pretending to be Betty Boop, each song was more annoying then before, not a big fan of the male singer Johnny something or other. Where does Maxwell DeMille find these people? Karaoke bars? Was he drunk when he hired them? I hope the restaurant didn't have to pay too much to hire them. I don't have any real thoughts about Maxwell DeMille unlike the other posters, but I can understand their feelings against him. The man never speaks to anyone and spends most of the event in hiding in dark corners. Why run a night club when you have a fear of being social? If had to pay, I would have wanted my money back. The restaurant which used to be great on service is also slipping. Our waiter was as clueless as it gets, not professional at all. The two stars goes for Cicada's management which is always professional.

Mediocre vintage nights

Cicada club used to be great, Maxwell De Mille simply does not care to greet his customers, the ones that are paying his salary. He is very aloof and almost antisocial. His last big band night was a HUGE disappointment. He needs to hire more professional acts. All of the singers and bands that have come in really had me and my friends yawning. I think Maxwell has tried to liven things up a new announcer, but all of his efforts really have bombed. Last week was particularly bad with the always boring Jennifer Keith ( I thought another singer was going to be singing but I guess she canceled), and the screechy blonde Christine. The 1920's nights are all the same, not worth going to anymore.
