Best meal of the trip

Large group of 16. Pre booked and ordered off a set menu prior to going there as we had a few vegetarians with us and wanted to ensure they were catered for. Luckily went to find the restaurant during the day as it's quite difficult to find down an alley way. Nice decor if a little tired. When we... read more

Was looking at another SF restaurant for our anniversary dinner when a colleague at work suggested Le Colonial instead. Started the evening on the patio at the upstairs bar. Peaceful and pleasant. The servers at dinner were helpful and efficient. We began with the khit kho chien (pork belly complemented with quail eggs and pears) and the bo bia they... More

Excellent service, excellent food and very lovely setting. If you can try to eat in the courtyard, but the lounge is equally as nice!

When my wife and I booked a trip to San Francisco, we wanted to try a unique dining experience, something a little different. After doing many online searches Le Colonial was selected. It did not disappoint. Wow this was an impressive restaurant. The décor of the entrance and the inside was striking. The food was amazing. We started with the... More

Such an authentic athmosphere, great service and delicious food! I had the sea bass in banana leaf which was cooked to perfection, and for desert one of the best chocolate cakes I ever had. Will definitly recommend to all my friends and will come back during my next visit to san francisco.

First off, take a cab here or you may never find it as it is kind of hidden in plain sight. I went with a group who ordered family style and got to try most of the entrees. Not a bad one in the bunch. Service was excellent, ambience was great (sit inside) and I will be back!

We are reviewing Le Colonial for the bar and dancing scene, not the restaurant. However, we had so much fun and loved the vibe so we will definitely be back to try the food. We went on a Wednesday to hear the swing band. They were absolutely spectacular. The dance floor is huge and the drinks were fairly priced given... More

Restaurant is centrally located, just a couple of blocks off Union Square and offers valet parking. Unique building with a grand entrance leads up to the restaurant which offers some outside but mainly inside seating. Food is to die for, simply some of the best Vietnamese cuisine available. Nice ambiance, great menu and wine list as well. Service could be... More

Very very tasty and good food. The best I eat in a vietnamese restaurant for years. The location is really hidden an alley but it worth to discover this place. I liked also the decor of an old colonial place.
