French cuisine with Vietnamese ingredients sounds promising, there is room for creativity and new tastes! The first Mises en Bouche seemed quite bizarre with a glass of fish sauce diluted with water and seasoned with lemon and sugar. Actually it s how the Vietnamse use it as a sauce, but definitely not to be drunk out of a glass! Imagine... More

We were very excited about going to this restaurant for New Years Eve - it had a degustation menu. We then read more reviews on Trip Advisor the afternoon before going. It was good we did so because it lowered our expectations. First thing - it is an overpriced experience, not just for Hanoi, but for any western city as... More

We came here for lunch and it was super quiet, almost no other diners. The food didn't blow us away, but it was elegant and tasty and a nice change from the grimey street food we'd been eating for days. The desserts were scrumptious! Wonderful ambiance and good service. Beautiful restaurant on a quaint street. It's good food - you... More

dear Schen056, thank you for your feedback. in fact, the menu for the lunch is more simple than our A la Carte for the evening. i invite you to come back for an evening, wich will, i'm sure, give you a better impression in term of flavors and ambiance in the room. looking forward to see you again.

This was by far the best meal we had in Vietnam. The service was attentive and the food sublime! Chef Didier Corlou has done an amazing job marrying Vietnamese and French cuisine into what is a Michelin star equivalent experience. His innovative ways of incorporating spices into every dish was really impressive and delicious!

I am sorry to say that all the bad reviews are true. Was very disappointed with the food and I can't believe an ex-chef from Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel helms this kitchen and several others. After this, we decided to not to visit Madam Hien. The food seemed very sloppily put together, and the flavours didn't gel at all! My... More

We had the set lunch at Verticale. The food was good and good value for money at around $45 US for the 2 of us for 3 courses and a glass of wine each. Service was not speedy but I think this is a Vietnamese thing rather than particularly this restaurant. The ambience was pleasant as the restaurant is located... More

My girlfriend had previously eaten dinner at the restaurant some years prior and had raved incessantly about how fabulous the service and food was. Unfortunately, our lunch at La Verticale was a total disappointment. We opted for the lunch (set menu); we went with the crab entree, beef main and the floating island for dessert. The food was bland and... More
