“Lovely evening”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We visited Le Colonial during San Francisco's "Dine About Town" event. Half of our party stayed with the special deal menu and half sampled other fare. All of the dishes were very good! In particular, we liked the vegetarian spring rolls, Bo Bia Chay, and the Alaskan black cod, Chao Ca. Afterwards, we went upstairs to enjoy the live music on Monday nights, "Le Jazz Hot". Try not to miss it! Great musicians and talented dancers provide a lively setting for after dinner drinks! The music ends rather early though - 10pm....

Reviewed October 19, 2012

Beautifull building with great decoration. French colonial style. Very warm atmoshere. Staff is very professional but warm and friendly. The food is great and has some really orignal dishes. Its great to share asian starters.
A fixed item during every trip to San Fransisco!

“Stop in for Drinks”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

In a gorgeous little building, the former Trader Vic's redone to be French Indonesian. Sitting out on a sheltered balcony with tasty appetisers and very nice drinks is a nice way to start an evening on the town.

Beautiful restaurant that provides very good services and food. Wine list is stocked with nice selection but is over priced. Food is artfully prepared with nice sized portions and quality ingredients. Service is top notch. The upstairs bar was very nice and has live music. Would highly recommend this restaurant to any one.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We visited Le Colonial for drinks and snacks and was pleasantly surprised at the great food and service, the cocktails and wine where very good and with the food we ordered more because it was so good. Live music is a must to watch along with the dancing.
