We had a lovely birthday dinner at this restaurant. The service was attentive and informative, the food was full of subtle, fresh flavors, and the booths were quiet enough to have good conversation. Would definitely go back!

The summer spring rolls were a delicious surprise. The crispy eggplant paired with the creamy avocado was delightful. The ginger honey tea was also very tasty, as was the Vermicelli & Lemon Grass Beef. The beef was tender and delicious, and cooked perfectly. I'll definitely be back to try other menu items!

I brought first time guests
I brought first time guests and they were very impressed with the food, the freshness of the food, presentation, friendly and prompt service. The appetizers were great for initiating the new ones to taste the different varieties. Vietnamese food is still foreign to many people, so I was very happy to show them how to eat some of the great food there. Perhaps, as a suggestion, the restaurant could voluntarily offer as a service to "novices" some tips on which sauce goes with which food, how to wrap the vegetables with the rolls, etc. so that they may enjoy the food to the fullest. I know they appreciate it.

Love, Love this Spot!
We had an outstanding server. He's one of the best I had ever had. We ended up trying the Duck Spring Roll, Banh Khot(Moon Cake), and Bo Luc Lac (Shaken Beef) on top of our usual Grilled Pork Spring Roll and Fresh Shrimp Roll. It just hit the spot. =P

Excellent Vietnamese cuisine
The restaurant is deceptively large on the inside, but it gets pretty crowded on weekends. If you're looking for pho or bun, this is not the place for you, really. That would be a waste. If you're looking for creative and amazing spring rolls, salads that mix sweet and savory and fresh and spicy with seamless flair, and delicately prepared and spiced seafood dishes? This is an excellent place.

Shrimp & Pork Rolls
The rolls are a must! It is their specialty and I always make a point to get them whenever I'm in SoCal. I haven't found anyone else that makes this style of spring roll- it is addictive! The shaking beef was also very good- moist and beefy with a really good caramelized sauce.....drool....
The service was excellent as well, prompt, friendly, and helpful. The chateau is the sister restaurant to the original Brodard and has a more modern decor. Both are good-I came to the chateau b/c the orig is closed on Tuesdays and I wanted to avoid the line of spring roll seekers with a reservation (which only the Chateau takes).
A must to visit and get ur fix when in SoCal!

The ladies at Chateau Brodard have created a beautiful dining experience coupled with delicious fresh food. We love the Sizzling sole but our favorite is the Shaken Beef. The staff is attentive and very helpful with a cuisine that I know enough about to be dangerous. Service is quick and attentive. Truly great food at a reasonable price.

The food is always wonderful. Very nice service. Reasonably priced. I would dine here everyday if I could. My favorite Vietnamese restaurant.

Not our best experience
Soft-shell crab spring rolls, Tofu salad and Vietnamese crepe were excellent! Shaken Beef not so much - too fatty. No food/appetizer deals for Happy Hour - $2 off drinks only. Were told by hostess that they did not have Happy Hour. Mainstream wine list but at least they had a good selection of categories (incl sparklings & champagnes) that pair well with their cuisine. Overall my main complaint is to management - need better training of service staff, too much chit-chat amongst line/prep staff behind bar in customer view.

Good but pricey
The food is very good. It is a nice restaurant with good ambience. The food is a little too expensive.

Go for the food
Quite honestly, if we weren't able to book online (I hate to wait) & the food wasn't good the first time we went, we would've never gone back since service that time was horrible even though it was quiet. Since then, we've been back a couple of times and found a server (Long) that's actually helpful & attentive. Some dishes have been inconsistent (chicken curry on one day was excellent, next time was tough) but the spring rolls are always good.
