Went here today for a birthday dinner, and to my surprise I wasn't disappointed. A friend at Mannup magazine introduced us and off we went, 11 of us, by the end we were so full we couldn't move. I highly reccommended the hamburger, the lamb and the mushroom soup. The gin and tonic was smooth. We... read more

If you have seen my other reviews - I was a bit disappointed last visit. This time was different and I wasn't paying the bill - work was!

I was at the French Grill on Nov 26, 2014 for a business dinner. There were 8 of us. The ambience was warm and cozy. We were in the private room that showcased their wine reserves. It felt special. I had the cold meat platter to begin which wasn't quite French but a hearty starter. Followed by a thick onion... More

Although it's far from the Old Quarter, which makes it actually a pleasant taxi trip to explore more of the city, this place is situated in the future business center of Hanoi. The JW marriot is a beautiful piece of architecture and I'd recommend going there just for a cup of coffee if not enticed by their restaurants. However, they... More

Of course there is tons of amazing local food in Hanoi - BUT if you stay long enough and want a break from strictly Asian flavors, then this is an excellent choice. Go after rush hour for dinner, and it is just 10 or 15 minutes in a cheap taxi from the main touristy Old Quarter. My favorite bite of... More

We really wanted to love the French Grill. The setting is beautiful and the service was excellent, but we honestly felt the meal was overpriced for what we got. The mushroom veloute soup was excellent but the French onion soup had almost no broth in it. The chef sent over a complimentary Alsatian flatbread which was very nice except that... More

We were looking forward to a special treat here but it was really outclassed by many other meals we had in Hanoi. The staff were very friendly, spoke excellent English and we were excited about how the great food would be! We started with the special appetiser which was really good. We followed the recommended seafood mains that arrived with... More

For a top end steak house, you cant go wrong here. I went twice in a week, the first for my wife's birthday the second time I took 15 of my team as I was staying at the hotel for meetings. Both times were excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a great meal.
