    First, we were hardly given time to look at the menue to make our choices. When we did, food almost all came at once that it was hard to find a place to put things on the table. Following that, our waitress disappeared. I needed a fork and it took about 10 minutes to get the attention of another waitress and then another 10 minutes for her to get the fork. Yes, she wasn't our waitress and yes she apologized for the delay but, 20 minutes to get a fork?!! It's like all at once or nothing. The food, though was good

    We like Vietnamese food and have tried several restaurants in the area. Hue has always been the trendy place for Vietnamese food but we decided to try it for our anniversary dinner. The bartender was very interesting to talk to since he had traveled all over Asia. We ordered something other than the Pho- a traditional noodle soup. Our dishes were very tasty and the prices were very fair. I would highly recommend Hue for your next night out!

    I have been to Hue several times, and the overall theme is that their food and service is very consistent. I usually have a nice dinner, service is somewhat timely, I don't feel rushed through my meal, and the meal quality is good. Their appetizer sampler is wonderful as a starter. The chicken curry is very good as well.

    The menu was small but seemed traditional but the food was underwhelming and under seasoned, not chefy and not old world. The waitress was odd and pretentious. She took our appetizer order and then walked away without getting our friend's order. The food was boring.

    Hue is simply decorated, with clean lines and a light atmosphere. It goes well with the hustle of the bar energy and the sharing of food plates at the dining tables. the menu is large. wait staff helpful in explaining, and questioning, so you don't have regrets once you make a choice. food is fresh and delivered artfully. I had enough for lunch the next day (lucky me!). the noise level may make larger groups difficult to hear across the table, but we will give it a go with another group of 6 for sure, so we can taste more of the menu!

    Made a reservation for Valentine's Day. They had our table ready right away. Service was quick, food came even quicker. Our waitress was friendly , laid back yet knowledgable, and cool. Everything was delicious. The table near the window was a bit cold but the pho warmed us enough that it didn't matter much.

    Far from your run of the mill food. Hue offers authentic Vietnamese food at a very reasonable price. Unlike may Vietnamese restaurants in Milwaukee, Hue is stylish, clean, and stocked with a full bar. It is defiantly one of Bay View's most popular restaurants and for good reason. Everything is great and the staff can help you navigate the menu if you are unfamiliar with the cuisine.

    My fiancé and I decided we wanted to try a restaurant we had not yet tried and decided on Hue. I was extremely impressed. This was our first time trying Vietnamese food so we can not compare it to any other restaurants. The service was outstanding and our food came out very quickly. We ordered two delicious drinks. I recommend the Basil Smash. Our food was great as well! We ordered the Spicy Crab Rangoon for an appetizer. So yummy! For our entrees we had the Mì Xào and the Vegetable Curry. We both loved our dishes. They had the perfect amount of spice to them and the vegetables were done amazingly. You get plenty of food, so look forward to bring some home for leftovers! We will definitely be back!

    I love Hue's crispy noodles with beef. In fact I ordered the shrimp version once, and even though I am not a beef person, there is something about theirs that I just love even better that shrimp. I've tried other menu items, but this is my favorite. The crispy noodle and all of the veggies are so good. I also love the spring roll with meat substitute. I also like the fact that the prices are very reasonable. It was suggested to me by a friend and I have turned many of my other friends onto it.
