We went to the Le Colonial a few days ago with great expectations. All in all, our high expectations were met; great atmosphere, great service, great flavors to the dishes we ordered, side dishes of vegetables cooked unbelievably well, but... One of the people at our table ordered the duck. The duck breast itself was tough. The sauce/sides were great,... More

A beautiful setting hidden away on a small street. Some outdoor seating on a patio, elegant decor inside. Quality Vietnamese food and excellent service made for a lovely dinner.The rolls and the fillet of beef cubes were delicious.

This place is on a side street so it's easily missed. The food is French/Vietnamese with a little Calif. cuisine mixed in. The food was outstanding... Great bar....great drinks! Good for that special night out. A can't miss SF RESTAURANT.

Several of us gathered for dinner having arrived on flights from around the country. The restaurant was very accommodating with lovely service in a period room. The Vietnamese cuisine was delicious and presented beautifully. The waitstaff were eager to please and contributed to a wonderful evening. They even arranged for separate checks for each of us which helps when you're... More

A unique menu, great service and a really cool setting makes for a great dining experience. It's like stepping back in time to a French colonial plantation in old Viet Nam. The food was delicious from appetizers to dessert, fresh, beautiful presentation and excellent service. On the pricey side but it is San Francisco near Union Square so no cheap... More

The atmosphere at Le Colonial is amazing. The amazing decor transports you back in time. Beautiful outdoor seating area, the inside is lovely too. There is also an upstairs bar area that hosts live music. The food is so perfect. I went there with a large party and shared a number of dishes and was lucky to have a taste... More

We went to the restaurant on the recommendation of the concierge of our hotel, expecting warm ambience and good food. What we found was a tired, three-quarters empty restaurant in need of renovation. And the food was mediocre at best. I would not recommend this place.

Le Colonial was on a list of recommended restaurants within walking distance of our hotel (the atmospheric Petite Auberg) so we ate there our first night in San Francisco. Immediately we were transported to colonial Saigon. Upon exiting the elevator, we were so captivated by the inviting outdoor eating area, a long walkway of wicker chairs and tables lined with...

Was there attending a whole commercial week and thru my Hotel`s concierge, reached Le Colonial and had the Pho Ga to start (so divine), then Vit Sot Me, one of the best ducks i ever tasted until now, paired with an amazing Pinot Noir. Do you need anything else after a full working day?
