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.

Maxwell DeMille has a lot of improvements to make.

This place needs a lot improvement. Where do I start? 1. Poor singers/bands who can't carry a tune who screech and wail into the poorly hooked up sound system 2. Maxwell DeMille who is arrogant and cold;he couldn't be bothered to speak to anyone. 3. The general deadness of the place. Instead of another act coming on during the band break, DeMille puts on maudlin recorded music on a loop 5. Maxwell DeMille's annoying nasally voice. 6. The announcer's annoying voice 7. The fact that no new ever comes to the club to preform. 8. The fact that Maxwell DeMille needs to announce that they are broadcasting through the world on a webcam (how is this vintage?) 8. Slow service at the restaurant 9. Pricey cocktails.
