Intrigued by the fusion of Vietnamese/French cuisine and encouraged by the reviews, we headed out to Paris-Siagon restaurant. Would like to comment on several aspects of the restaurant and experience as follows:
Atmosphere - quaint, quiet, relaxed - a nice, completely indoor refuge from the busy street outside - we came in during a deluge and were pleased to enter through solid glass doors and sit in a cozy dining area
Menu - interesting selection of food that was either French or Vietnamese so we had our pick. I ordered from the French menu and my friend from both.
Drinks - try the Absinthe - very tasty and water poured over sugar cube.
Food - I ordered the Beef Bourguignon and while I was certainly not expecting Julia Child's recipe, I was surprised to receive a plate of what looked like Dinty Moore Beef Stew (minus the veggies and potatoes) on a bed of elbow macaroni. The meal was fulfilling and tasted fine...just not what I was expecting.
My friend ordered the Lamb Stew from the French Menu and received a fairly small portion of lamb with some potatoes and carrots. Seemed like a very small portion for an entree and tasted fine but not very juicy.
The Pho Beef soup she ordered from the Vietnamese menu was fine but not especially memorable.
Dessert - We ordered the blueberry tart and the Tiramisu. I am not certain but looks like the desserts were not made on site but perhaps ordered from another place? They were both fine but definitely not made recently.
All of the above is not to say that we did not enjoy our meal or the experience.The owner waited on us and he was very nice and helpful. The food was fine and the place was really very nice to hang out in. I just had a little higher expectations per the menu items and the price seemed a little high for what we had. I definitely think this place is worth one trip for some comfort type food but would not recommend it as offering authentic French cuisine.
