Our server last night was very friendly, helpful and attentive and either the owner or chef was out to check on us. . . . more than once. I've been here 6 or 7 times now, and what strikes me is that they have been...consistently consistent. It doesn't matter if it's lunch or dinner, crowded or not. The service and food have been excellent. When I'm in the mood for Vietnamese food , , , this is my go-to!More

Phenomenal Pho with friends. Staff was super friendly, and the food was fresh and delicious. We had the shrimp and pork rolls wrapped in fresh lettuce with awesome dipping sauce. Get the Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk. We got ours to go.

A very pleasant surprise. This was our first experience with "Pho" and we were pleasantly surprised. Ws only went there because it was within walking distance from the hotel. The place was very neat,clean,and cozy. The staff was over the top in welcome us and...explains the choices on the menu and how to eat them. Our food arrived hot and everything tasted like it was freshly prepared. We will definitely stop there again on the way back. It will be a pleasure to treat our tastebuds and learn more about this very interesting cuisine!More

What is it about strip mall restaurants that leave some with the sense they can't be that good. Well, True Foodies know better. And, I was reminded of this after lunch at Pho 99. I can only speak for the Seafood Rice Noodles, but it...was outstanding. Now, I will admit to loving Vietnamese food in general and the broth soups in particular, but I've had many and this was Good! The ambiance was mall-like, but that's true of many great restaurants in places that are new and growing. But, Pho 99 was a bit nicer than that...a clean look with nice seating, but with a bar that was pretty cool. Service was fast, knowledgeable and accent-less. But, unlike many asian restaurants, their bathroom was big, well decorated, well stocked and clean. áo ngực! (hope Google translate got that right)More

I like a nice big bowl of soup and noodles especially on a rainy day here in Florida. I can't even tell you the name in Vietnamese but thankfully we are regulars and the just ask if we want the usual. The Peach iced tea...is my drink of choice with dinner. They have a full bar for your drink requirements. A Nice menu with lots of choices. Family run great service.More

We wanted appetizers for a light meal to go. When I arrived 15 minutes prior to closing, I felt very welcomed into the restaurant. After I ordered spring rolls and egg rolls, the manager showed me how to assemble my meal, as well as telling...me about the sauces involved. I was most impressed when I saw the manager seat a couple for lunch right at closing time. As he unlocked the door for me to leave, he invited another couple (going back to their car because the restaurant door was locked) to enter AFTER closing time. The food was delicious, and Pho 99 has impeccable customer service!More

I have been to Pho 99 three times now. Twice I had the shrimp spring roll appetizer which is fantastic; they don't get much better than that. The peanut sauce that goes with the spring rolls is almost addictive it's so good. For entrees I...have had two different beef dishes with broken rice which were both truly excellent. The flavors and attention to how the food is cooked are remarkable. I also really enjoyed the vegetable and tofu entree with broken rice. All three dishes I would get again and recommend to anyone. The only other thing I can say about the beef is that I wish it were a bit higher quality, but it is still quite good, and I am very picky. This is one of my favorite restaurants. If you like this type of Vietnamese cuisine, you should really enjoy Pho 99. I have not tried the Pho, or the other noodle dishes yet, but I would like to! They have quite a large selection of beverages, beyond alcohol and soda, which is quite nice. The service is good and, the servers are very pleasant. It has an understated contemporary atmosphere that is casual, comfortable and appealing.More
