Just like another reviewer, we stopped here on a whim for lunch too. Menu looked ok, so we asked to be seated. Took a while to get seated and then again for water. Had to ask for order to be taken. Took a while for our order to come out, then had to ask for eating utensils. Had a chicken... More

Order the Vermicelli Bowl, otherwise, what are you doing with your life? The service is always fantastic. The gentleman with the glasses, whom I fail to remember the name of, always takes care of us. If you have an appreciation for cultural cuisine, look no further.

My main quarrel with this place is, that they charged me for someone else's meal PLUS mine. The waitress was incompetent, and kept our party held up for almost 20 minutes, before coming over to admit her mistake. She couldn't figure out how to reverse the charge, and had to call the manager at home...at 10 PM at night. Someone... More

I ordered the Pho Bo with beef slices - The soup is rich and flavourful. Generous portion and I love how they bring out the various chili options. Cannot wait to return for another go at their incredible pho! My fiancé ordered the yellow curry and it came with sizeable French baguette which was freshly baked in the morning. They... More

We decided to try LA V after a visit to American Stage. We were not disappointed. The wing appetizer was crunchy and tasty, albeit only 3 wings for that price. The LA V bun was delicious as was the dish with rice. The pork in both dishes had a wonderful taste and the crab meat loaf slices were unique and... More

I had the lemongrass chicken bowl. The chicken is so tender and the spice on it was delicious! My friend had the spring tools and egg rolls. Really enjoyed them. My only concern was that she was not charged for her wine! We noticed after we left. So managers need to know this!

I arrived early for a lunch meeting and was quickly greeted by an employee. I explained I was meeting a few people and she invited me to have a seat until they arrived. 30 seconds later, the other parties arrived, but then the employee and several other employees (who were not at all busy) seemed to think we were invisible...

Visited La V twice in two weeks. First time I had the beef pho, which was excellent and a fairly large serving. The second time I ordered the La V vermicelli bowl. This entrée I thought was a bit small for the price. I don't like being hungry when I'm done dinner, and that's how I felt. It was good,... More
