I went there with some colleagues, the setting is a bit formal but in a nice building. We shared a few dishes as appetizers and main. Appetizers were a bit disappointing. We had the prawns and papaya salad. But main filet mignon and sea bass were really nicely spiced, however the lemongrass chicken was a bit bland and dry. We... More

Nice restaurant setting, and friendly service. My wife and I visited, and we both ordered seafood. The quality was good, though not extraordinary. We had fond memories of great and well-seasoned Vietnamese food from our travels in South east Asia. The food here was ok, but bland by comparison.

My Colleagues and I had a wonderful dinner Le Colonial. The food was excellent and the service was terrific. They bring to life the flavors of Vietnam and blend them well with the French influence. Loved it and looking forward to another dinner there in the near future.

I used to bring ladies here and Ive made out many times on that dance floor with a drink in my hand. This place is for party, not so much food.

Menu was interesting but the the appetizers and sides were the real stars for us. Ordered the chef's choice appetizer plate for two. Five of their best - papaya salad, veggies rolls, bbq ribs, fried wonton, viet spring rolls lettuce wraps. Each was better than the next as we worked our way from one end to the other of a... More

This place was a great find off the beaten path and super beautiful. We had dinner and even better was they have a band upstairs most nights. The staff was superb from the hostess to the servers. The food was very good - I recommend sticking with the house specials. Overall very friendly, good and accommodating.

It is a bit hidden away, but a very serene atmosphere for both indoor and outdoor eating. Service was excellent as was the food. I particularly liked the sea bass cooked in banana leaves for entrée. The crab cakes were also excellent appetizers while the spring rolls were a bit disappointing . The wine list is also very good and... More

First off, I wish Tripadvisor would offer a rating between "average" and "very good;" perhaps "good." This restaurant is better than average, but doesn't merit very good. The atmosphere is lovely, very serene. Service was professional. Our cocktails were disappointing, as were our entrees. Appetizers were very good. We've been to the Le Colonials in NYC and Chicago, and we... More

Hosted a large party in there lower floor and was impressed with the food and service. The staff were very attentive and respectful to our needs. The food was delicious, which is not often the case when you are catering to a large group of almost 100 people. The menu was decided in advance, and it was fairly priced. I... More
