Ordered the six course tasting menu so we could sample as much as possible from the restaurant, and we were continually disappointed. We skipped one of the courses simply because we wanted the meal to end sooner. While the dishes seem designed around complexity (many ingredients) and innovative techniques (eg. gels, infusions), but none of them delivered on taste. Moreover,... More

Let me put it this way- When one bravely enters an expensive restaurant to try out a new cuisine and expects food that is different and high on taste and finds none of it,What does one do?With the hard truth hovering at the back of your mind that there's going to be a huge hole in your pocket by the...

We had a good time, but while that is always nice, a restaurant that advertises itself as fine dining and tries to be edgy just cannot afford to be so far off the mark. The amuse bouche kicked off with a black pepper sorbet that was lumpy, grey and anything but inventive. And so it continued, nothing being outright bad,... More

Located on a fairly quiet side street in central Hanoi, not far from the Metropole and Hoan Kiem Lake, Verticale is so far the best all around French-Vietnamese colonial dining experience I have had in a year and a half of living in Hanoi. The decor is thoughtfully presented and maintained, service is friendly and efficient, prices are very reasonable,... More

The title says it all. Had the best duck I have ever had by miles and incredibly interesting meal all around with French techniques and recipes but applied with local, northern Vietnamese ingredients.

Had read a lot about this restaurant - from the architecture to gastronomy. On arrival, the restaurant was empty looking but very pretty in a colonial way. Went upstairs, not much atmosphere. Empty except 4 other diners. Food was lukewarm and not that tasty. Our daughters didn't eat much. Had to ask for an explanation what the amuse bouches were.... More

Entering the building looks charming from outside however very disappointing entering a dull room upstairs, outdated with pale yellow walls and morone coloured napkins. A very outdated atmosphere, The food menu looked OK. The wine menu very expensive. The chef complimentary courses were uninspiring , cold and wondered what they were trying to achieve when we had ordered starters, main... More

This is my second time in La Verticale (first time was for business, this one with my wife), and I never was disappointed. The food is one of the best we can find in Asia (and maybe in the world). The cuisine is perfect, inventive, with tastes that we cannot find elsewhere. This time we had the sixth-course menu which... More

One of the best culinary moment I had in Asia. Food is amazing, this is like a defilé of plates, each of them is cook with local products and beautiful to look at, this is tasty and original. Little sorbets between the main dishes, hmmmmm. The place is very comfy, merci chef!
