Upscale lunch in Hanoi

Set in the diplomatic area of Hanoi, this French restaurant makes one feel like they could be part of a spy novel. The food and service were very good. After having other meals in the Old Quarter at very local Vietnamese restaurants, this was a refined French meal. There were 6 of us and enjoyed... read more

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

While in Hanoi I had dinner with my wife at La Verticale, restaurant run by Chef Didier Corlou. The restaurant is in a great setting, you can stop by the spice bar on the main level and smell some of the Chef's concoctions (including Halong Curry). Dinner is served on the first floor (parties can stay downstairs) with a Michelin... More

French style of food with nice decoration and wonderful taste! The Atlantic cod and tuna are two dishes that we had in La Verticale and the experience got from these are the fresh taste of the fish in the mixture of ginger and green tea.

I have to say this is close to the worse alleged fine dining experience I have ever had in my life. We opted for the six course menu and it went down hill from the on set. It seemed the french waiter was doing the cooking as he kept disappearing out to the kitchen for long periods of time and... More

We had the 'Summer' menu. Incredibly fussy presentation, but flavour combinations did not work. Completely over ambitious. Was the chef here in the kitchen and having a bad day or were the kitchen staff interpreting instructions poorly? We had a table in the upstairs room. It had no ambience - if you are going to have strange hanging light fittings,... More

This place really is totally overrated. Atmosphere and food is not terrible but the price we payed here is at no means justified. We have tried out other high class places in Vietnam but nowhere else we found such a discrepancy between price and total performance offered. Try out something else - honestly there are better places in town and... More
