Beautiful upscale trendy and yet NOT Manhattan pretentious!!My boyfriend and I have been here several times alone and with friends and we consider it to be our perfect NY dining out experience. Creative cocktails, tasty dishes, great atmosphere...can't say enough...highly recommended...
Very average food for too high prices.Very disappointing. I went for Restaurant Week with my girlfriend and our meal wasn't great. The food is dull and uninspired; it tastes and is presented like your average corner place, but is far more expensive. I won't be back, though the ambience and service are pleasant.
Not My Grandma's PhoI love this place...I have consistently frequented the upstairs lounge for at least 6 years and have never been disappointed. Though I swear by my mother's fish sauce, and the pho at Nha Trang (Chinatown on Baxter) is a bit better at 1/3 of the price...I do think it's worth it (sometimes) to enjoy Vietnamese in "luxury". The decor is perfectly authentic..down to the bathroom tile. This place makes me feel like Im walking into my grandmother's ancient colonial house in Hue...and the food...well, I dare say is rather authentically upper-class Vietnamese. Most people have never really had the pleasure to truly taste the broad spectrum of Vietnamese cuisine...this place actually serves authentic upper-class home cooking...which is to say that it's very different from the usual chinatown selections of Pho and spring-rolls (god forbid should anyone make a comparison to the Chinese-imitation so named Saigon Grill).
Unfortunate DeclineThe food was terrible, relatively expensive (spent 200 for 3), and the service slow. I dont know if its the economy or a change in management and the chef but you want to take your money somewhere else.
Was a waste of my moneyWe were looking for a restaurant near the 59E59 Theatre before our show. I love Vietnamese food so chose this when given the nearby options. By chance it was also Restaurant Week. The RW menu of appetizer, main course and a mixed sorbet dessert was $35. Ordering an app and main course w/no dessert from the regular menu was basically the same price. Hmmm, I thought.
Cold Food, Bad Service... for $140Want to read a horror story...
Great Restaurant!!The food and Drinks were Delicious. I went here after getting my hair done. I am glad they recommended Le Colonial. We met some great people and had so much fun!
Good food! Highly recommendedThis is a very special place for me. I love the food and the people. Never been disappointed.
Very DisappointingWe had gone to Le Colonial in San Francisco and enjoyed both the food and atmosphere. The New York location sounded perfect for my birthday celebration but I am sorry to say that the food left a lot to be desired. I ordered the duck which was dry and tasteless. The mango sundae was the best part of the meal. Would definitely not go back.
