Lovely meal in lovely settings. Only minor issue was very quick service with no break between courses.

The concierge at our hotel recommended the restaurant. The atmosphere is French colonial during their time in Vietnam. The restaurant is lovely and the food delicious. Flavors are a combination of both groups and all is well done. A special diner.

Certainly a stunning place when you see it from the outside it is nothing really but inside a real colonial feel mixed with an old style gentlemen's club. The ribs and pork belly starters were excellent. The mains received mixed reviews whilst the flavour was strong and bold the content of some of the dishes were on somewhat surprising and... More

Went to Le Colonial for a friends birthday. Everything was wonderful. Unique and delicious food in a beautiful setting, with top notch service. Perfect for a special occasion or when you want a different culinary experience.

This is a French vietnamese food restaurant with an entrance with glass ceiling and trees that reminds just of what nice Vietnamese places looked during French colonial times. The indoor restaurant is also beautiful. People had dressed up for the place that was crowded. Everyone's meal looked fantastic. We tried the two Pho's (vietnamese soup), Pho Ga and Pho Bo,... More

I've been to this place 3 times. They have great vegatarian options and a great place to share appetizers. I've always had great service and don't let the alley deter you....it is safe and the place is really good. Good for business dinners and personal times.

Very expensive, mediocre service and poor quality food killed this experience for me. I went to Subway afterwards to wash down my disgust with a standard old sandwich. The appetizer platter at $28 was doable, but the main course ( a huge slab of overcooked pork, 2 cooked eggs without anything else to it - i.e. some rice, veggies etc)... More

Loved the secluded locale...if you didn't know where you were going and what you were looking for, you'd miss it! Great decor, simple elegance, drinks were great, entrees excellent, and coconut/macadamia nut gelato was hmmmmmmmm. Relaxing setting, ambience quiet, secluded, yet great wait staff. Food was perfect!

We were staying near Le Colonial and not terribly hungry so we went just for appetizers and drinks. Delicious and nice selection. The entrance is in an alley but it is quite safe.

Trying to think of a place in SF that was nice, not TOO expensive and would be able to accomodate a colleague who is vegetarian. I had been hear before, both in SF and Chicago, and knew that I liked it. My colleagues liked it too, maybe especially the rather ecclectic cocktails. We ordered an appetizer platter that included one... More
