“For a special night out....very French....it must be La Signature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

La Signature is special. It is located in an old French colonial building that has been restored on a small side street behind Vat Ongteu in the heritage section of Vientiane.

The food is very good and well presented. It never disappoints. The atmosphere is minimalist but colonial Indochinese.

The good food and warm ambiance notwithstanding, the service needs some attention. The servers provide service to diners on both the ground and first floors and sometimes cannot be found at all. But, such is Indochina. Be patient and someone will appear.

La Signature is definitely a cut above other restaurants in Vientiane and is for that special night out.

“Food looks nice but is full of salt and looks tired”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

I was travelling solo so chose not to go out to restaurants on my own. I ate the food from this restaurant frequently and it was overpowered with salt which ruined any other flavour it might have had.

“Food good, service disappoints”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Both times I have been there I have really enjoyed the atmosphere. It's a beautiful hotel with a romantic setting for the restaurant. The food is really quite nice on the whole and if the service could be better it would be a very special experience. Service is lacking and I'm not sure if it's motivation or training or what, but there is a very molasses-like quality to attending to people sitting at tables and it feels like time stands still for a really long long time. Long long time. There are lots of other options in Vientiane for good food with better service.

“Smoke and Mirrors”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

Looks like it will be nice but fails to deliver on service and standard. Staff stare at you rather than come over to serve you. Food is over priced and lacks taste. Our desert tasted microwaved.

I wouldn't recommend it

“Excellent location and fab food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Situated just off the main high street La Signature is located in the lovely Ansara Hotel. Beautifully manicured gardens and modern furniture make the garden a haven of peace in a busy city.
Went to have dinner on the eve of the 4 day Pii Mai Lao (Lao New Year) holidays and we weren't disappointed. Super food with a modern contempary twist on goats cheese with pesto excellent and a smoked duck breast salad. The rum baba dessert was to die for and the a lovely selection of good French wines. The waiter and waitress who looked after us were so kind and unabtrusive. Lovely ambience the only slight negative and it is in no way a criticism of the restaurant and the marveous staff but the gorgeous tropical blooms though beautiful seemed to attract dozens of pesky mosquitos which were annoying. The staff were super and despite a very awkward and some would say very rude fallang (foreigner) on another table the staff kept their composure. We would happily go back for another meal.
