    Skip the formal dining and head upstairs to the lounge. Comfortable seating with a full menu, excellent service, and live jazz. Try the braised brussel sprouts or anything with crab.

    The new menu will be taking shape over the next couple of months, but here's a hint: a mashup of Vietnamese pho and French pot-au-feu served tableside, and a spin on riz au lait. Read more

    One of my top ten favorite restaurants in the country. One bite of the Thit Kho Nuoc Dua (Coconut Water Braised Pork Shoulder) or the Bo Bit Tet (Grilled Ribeye) and you’ll know why!

    Came here to grab a drink because the place next door had a wait. Drinks are a decent price during happy hour and it can be fun if folks are dancing! Will have to come back for the food.

    Cool venue and tasty Vietnamese food to go with it. If you are with a group, the lamb cutlets are a must have.

    Upstairs is where it's at. And if you like tequila and spicy things, order a Pura Vida - You will not be disappointed. For food, the Brussels sprouts are killer. Favorite bartenders: Moses & Phil.

    Excellent little spotted tucked into an alley. Get a bunch of rolls and the appetizer sampler to share, the small bites were better than the mains

    Pork belly, excellent! Also very good green papaya salad, the filet mignon, which seems to be everyone favorite's, lacked of flavour. The best: brussel sprouts!

    The place is beautiful, the service is wonderful and the food is delicious! I felt like I was back in Hanoi at a colonial restaurant.

    Had the spring rolls, lamb chops and brussel sprouts. All were some of the best dishes I've had, anywhere. I highly recommend you try as much as you can.

    Everything we had was amazing, esp the brussel sprouts, duck spring rolls and fried rice. Really flavorful food and a unique ambience. Would go there again and again

    Seabass cooked in banana leaf was great, my friend got the pork shoulder which looked amazing too, skip the rolls and go straight for their entrees

    Don't forget to check out the lounge upstairs. Also avoid the filet mignon and the sea bass and go spicier stuff

    Banh Xeo, Bo Luc Lac, and seabass wrapped in banana leaf was delicious. Beautiful restaurant for a special occasion.

    Loved the spring rolls, papaya salad, and the crepe. If you've got room, I loved the lemon cake - not too tart, just very refreshing.

    Good food but the establishment is past its prime. It's only an echo of its once excellent and stylish self. Goodnight, Le Colonial.

    Bland and sugary Vietnamese. Shrimp fresh rolls had a thick casing $12. Skip sweet seafood stew $30 and caramelized brussel sprouts $9. Nice setting and service.

    No cover on Fridays before 11 pm. Great music on Friday and Saturday nights. Starts with mainstream hip-hop and Top 40 stuff and typically moves into the 80s after 12-12:30 am.

    Live gypsy jazz upstairs on Mondays from 7p to 10p. Not a Lindy Hop venue but the band and bartender really like dancers.
