In the new (well newish) location DR is much larger than before. There are still queues and sometimes the wait is long. But always worth it, and seating at the bar with a glass of wine is a pleasant way to wait. The food has always been excellent, a little pricey if you step out for the specialities such as... More

Came in early for dinner with a large party which they were able to accommodate on patio. Nice location overlooking water and Park St bridge in the East Bay. Food was solid with good sized portions. Service was a little scattered. I was glad to be in patio because restaurant itself could use a little refreshing. Waitstaff was nice and... More

I had spring rolls and mango salad. Shrimp spring rolls were fresh and tasty. Dipping sauces were very good. They offer a clear, sweet fish-based sauce and the typical peanut sauce. Mango salad was good, but not a meal. It would have worked as an appetizer. All of the contents are shredded and dry, but the salad did taste fresh.... More

This lovely restaurant on the water in Alameda has excellentVietnamese food and is very popular for both lunch (get an outside table) and dinner (inside the large glass windows for Bay Area evening chill). The contest winner is the Pineapple and shrimp in crisp Noodle nest, served in a pineapple half. The BBQ lemongrass grilled dishes and the very garlicky... More

I love this place, start with the Saigon Martini, (coconut, lemon = yummy) next a appetizer (we like the calamari) and then for the main course so many good things to choose. (garlic basil noodles with shrimp or the pork chop). Dragon Rouge is right on the water so great location, you can't go wrong!

if you're a fan of garlic and the lingering taste/smell of garlic breath then this is the place for you! They rely heavily on garlic as their main flavor, we had order about 6 different dishes and none of them had any spice or herb flavors, all garlic. So much so that you really couldn't taste the food.

Love it for lunch, love it for dinner! Love the garlic noodles, scrimp rolls, clay pots, etc. Really like that it is an Alameda family restaurant.

Love this place, priced right for fresh ingredients. Get the mango salad, garlic noodles & can't pass up not the bouncing beef dish. So much to select and also have gluten free dishes.

Oct. 24, 2013: A Thursday Night 5:30p - 7:30p Arrived early evening (usually packed on Fri-Sat says my dinner companion who lives in Alameda). No problems parking tonight. Tonight it was not full even when we left. Asked the smiling & friendly hostess to sit us away from main area on a 4-top (even though we were only two)…No hesitation... More

We came here for my BF's mom's birthday. We had a party of 8. Arriving here around 6:30pm, the parking situation is a mess. Tight spots that were available farther away. We were at bit late, so we just passed up trying to find a hostess and just walked in and looked for our seated party. Found them no prob.... More
