Memorable dinner in Hanoi

Setting for La Verticale is quiet and cool, away from street noise. We dined upstairs, formal, white linen setting and very attentive wait staff. Water took a while to come - being so hot in Hanoi, it would be nice if you were offered sooner rather then waiting for other drink/food selection. We... read more

I'm not usually a fuzzy eater, but this place is very under my expectation. We ordered 6-course meal and it was bland. Most of the food were warm as well. Ambience and service are not memorable. Would not recommend this place to anyone

Restaurant interior is a combination of old colonial style and this place needs an update. Setting is for sure not spectacular. Food is overall good with great surprises and innovative combinations of flavors. Mainly local staff and a French head waiter. Good restaurant for a nice dinner evening out with a group of people. Service is good. Wine list has... More

We chose this restaurant based on great reviews on Trip Advisor. We had a nice evening overall, working our way through the 6 course degustation. The food is good, some of it great (the cod, for example, was 'melt in the mouth' and the chocolate pudding dessert absolutely fabulous). However, it was a Tuesday evening and it felt a little...

I tried the summer menu and it was amazaing. I was looking for this kind of cuisine. So related to the local product but with a creative twist. The restaurant is beautiful, the service very good, so creative and crazy but perfect and classy at the same time. Best restaurant in Vietnam until now and one of my best dinners... More

Flavours that challenge traditions but has worked very well in my opinion. It has not disappointed anyone I have introduced to the restaurant and I make it a point to visit it at least once per visit to Hanoi. Highly recommended!!

Every 3-6 months we delight in having a big dinner at La Verticale. Once again it was superb, and a new menu. We chose three different sets and shared, so effectively tasting about 20 dishes! The winners were the seafood starters, including a large scallop to die for. The food is haute cuisine, but with a twist of Vietnam: fish... More
