Went with colleagues for a work dinner. Doesn't look special from the outside but step inside and it's beautiful. Staff were fantastic and flavours were amazing. Certainly worth trying the appetiser platter and the 48 hour lamb was good to. Sauce for the seafood curry was so good you could just drink it.

4 of us had dinner earlier in August 2016, and it was wonderful. My wife and I had the lamb shank, which was among the best we've ever had. The wine was great, and the service attentive and impressive. We are from out of town and would love to return.

We accidentally found this restaurant 20 meters from Post St. I've been to many restaurants around the world, and this restaurant made my top 3. Every dish from the ribs and tuna tar tar appetizers to the coconut rice, the steak cubes and fresh halibut - each dish was delicious. Even the cocktails and wine selections were masterfully created. The... More

Off the beaten path and in a jewel box of a building, it's a lovely setting for a group gathering. We all met for drinks in the upstairs bar where there was a good band performing. Dinner was slow to start because they couldn't seat us at our reservation time. The group at the table for 6 that they wanted... More

5 stars in a tucked away spot! Happened up in this jewel purely by accident. What a FANTASTIC surprise!!! This is a French/Asian combination of AMAZING quality of food and atmosphere! LOVED everything about it; the wine, the food, the atmosphere and even the price was not tooooooo pricey (certainly not for the quality). Will return!!!

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
