I came to Le Colonial with a group of 10 coworkers for a team dinner. We absolutely loved the place Pros: - We got a round table, which most restaurants don't have (and it's so perfect for large groups, so everyone can see each others' faces). - Food was DELICIOUS (especially the Brussels Sprouts) - The restaurant was beautifully decorated,...

Recommended by a family member, Le Colonial was a gem of a dinner experience. The setting, on a small side street off Union Square, took us back to colonial Asia. A beautiful fore-court that would be perfect for warm weather dining, and a gracious, beautifully decorated main dining. It also has a very nice bar upstairs with a jazz combo... More

When we are so fortunate as to be able to visit San Francisco, we always make it a point to get to Le Colonial. We eat in this good restaurant which is not at all run-of-the-mill, with dishes easy to share with all at your table. Then it's off to upstairs to dance to great swing bands in a fun... More

We had a great three course dinner, no wine, just beer and cocktails for $142 plus service for two people. Really different taste combinations of French and Asian. Vietnamese chocolate cake desert has to be tried! Highly recommended. Fast and good service, nice busy atmosphere.

The restaurant is designed in a French colonial style. It has a lovely atmosphere of a larger restaurant. The food is fusion and absolutely delicious. Price is reasonable with about $28 for a main course.

This French-Vietnamese restaurant offers a great place to take business colleagues or a romantic date. The food and experience is unforgettable. We had the lamp chops, sea food, salads and they were all fantastic. We loved it and will come back!

We certainly enjoyed the food and the service but when the bill arrived we were in for a shock. This place certainly recreates an old french colonial bistro but it comes at a price. The menu is interesting, variety OK but just beware of the exaggerated prices.

I had a very delicious meat dish which was served with a salad bed. Athmosphere was very good at Le Colonial! Service was also very good so I really can recommend this place to everyone

The restaurant is hidden away down a side alley with an unprepossessing entrance topped with the name in script neon ala Rick's Cafe Americain. The building magically expands as you walk up then through an open air tropical plant lined glass ceiling protected walkway which leads into a large elegant dining area with slowly revolving fans hanging from pressed tin...
