THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Cordiale Restaurant Review

: Loyal locals fill the dining room, where polished wood tables and striped banquettes provide a conservative sense of style that complements the handsome stone-topped bar. Starters on the extensive menu range from fried calamari steak strips with tartar sauce to chicken satay with spicy Indonesian dipping sauce. Salads and sandwiches satisfy as entrées, though traditional large plate options include grilled orange roughy with lemon butter, a baby rack of lamb accompanied by minted port wine, and the linguine Cordiale, tossed with spinach, green onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. Desserts resemble those found in most French bistros, with a hazelnut caramel torte, dark and white chocolate mousse, and bread pudding with raisins, apricot and vanilla sauce. A small wine list is dominated by recognizable California producers.
