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.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend. SO HAPPY he did. Exquisite unexpected treasure. Ged our waiter was attentive informative yet unobtrusive. We ordered the mixed appetisers which were all delicious. I ate the sea bass to share which was simply the best fish i have eaten in years. My partner ate the steak which he thoroughly enjoyed.

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

We went here on a date night, and were pleasantly surprised. Probably due for a renovation (there's actually a real live pay phone on the wall, and the upholstery on the chairs is a bit worn, etc.), but the food really was good and the desserts were amazing (yes, we ordered more than two...and you should, too--pretty much anything with...

This was our second visit to Le Colonial, and a second delightful dining experience there, and I have to say that this restaurant has become one of my favorites in the city. The ambiance is delightful, with upscale old-world charm befitting its colonial name. The service is outstanding. And the food is truly exceptional; Vietnamese classics beautifully presented and perfectly... More
