    Even my husband who is American likes and enjoys the food here. So does my sister who visits the place for the first time from Glendale, California. I particularly relish on the spring rolls and the delicious Cha Gio and Won Ton Soup and especially the "Banh Cuon". Brandon was awesome, taking care of the four of us. Thanks Very Much, Brandon.

    if you go on a friday or saturday night it is a wonderful experience. they have a piano player and the food is very good. especially if you like vietnamese food kicked up a notch in class. going on a weeknight is not so great. less experienced staff, fewer dinners, and when we went the service was horrible. they had two young waiters who while not unpleasant humans were rude in their behaviors. rather than letting us alone to enjoy talk in peace , they approaced us constantly about what we wanted. rather than waiting till someone finished a thought they interrupted an ongoing enthusiatic conversation. and they rushed us because they obviously wanted to get us and another table out of there. it was a miserable experience.

    Jazz trio playing in the corner, a bit loud for me. A large family group was annoying playing with ipads and smart phones watching videos without earphones, boy with group running around yelling. Ceviche app was amazing, thinly slice halibut in a mild tasty lime/sliced onion mixture. Vietnamese egg rolls were great tasting. Shared entree of filet mignon and large shrimp. Cooked perfectly med rare with 2 shrimp on top. Potato cubes were ok, brocollini cooked just right in sauce. Great mix of American/Viet foods and flavors. Service was perfect, young lady was very cheerful and attentive. Entree didn't come out until we had eaten both apps so perfect timing. Overall a great place for nice quality meal at reasonable price ($65).

    We have been going to S for many years. The owner, Stephanie, is always accommodating and her staff is well trained, cordial, and helpful. The menu changes, adding new items, as well as continuing to offer a variety of favorites. Nice to see the addition of gluten free items. From a quick snack at the bar to weekday lunchtime specials, to an elegant special occasion dinner for large groups, one is always pleasantly appreciative and can expect excellent food well served.

    Wow! What a find! Located on the edge of Westminster Mall this place is fabulous! It really is upscale vietnamese food. We started with the appetizer sampler which gives you tastes of 5 different dishes, it's great for your first visit. I had the seabass in a coconut curry sauce--to die for!! My husband had the soft shell crab and loved it. Can't wait to go back and try the shaken beef and the seabass in black bean sauce. The place was fairly quiet but lunch is their busiest time. The lunch menu looks awesome and is very different from the dinner menu. I liked it because the tables are set far apart so you can actually have a nice conversation without talking over your neighbor. GO GO GO!! You will love this place.

I had the Halibut as an entree' it was good but not great, my date had the baked salmon it was a little dry. The beer that was offered to us was also just ok. Lastly was the desert which was the gem of the entire dinner carmalized fried bananas along with vanilla ice cream now that was great

    We've been to S Vietnamese several times. Food is always excellent -- unusual, well prepared, beautifully presented, delicious. Service is attentive. This time the kitchen was a little slow, but our waiter was apologetic, and we got lots and lots of water refills. Lovely interior design. The piano was a nice touch, but a little loud for conversation.

    ArizonanVIP

    A unique place. The food is Vietnamese so if you are a foodie who likes Vietnamese food, this is a great place to go. The traditional dishes are very good; the crossovers are fine but not exceptional. If you get the beef lucluc be sure to order rare; Asian restaurants tend to overcook beef which, in this case when they use fillet, is especially egregious. Also don't overlook the frangipane tart desert; it is outstanding. Also beware, this is a restaurant that does large events like weddings so check to make sure they are open for other customers and, if there is a wedding, be prepared to be put in the "back room" which lacks any ambiance. If the food is the thing, you won't really care.

    S Vietnamese Restaurant has long been one of my favorites. It is not your typical Vietnamese restaurant, but more French Fusion, I suppose. The menu has new items every time we go, but there a old favorites. The shaken beef is always terrific. The last two visits included escargot which are quite different from what is normally served. These were in a garlic icrceam sauce. Very rich but great. Deserts are wonderful especially the berry frangipani. We had tirimasu which was spectacular and large enough for sharing. Still y favorite restaurant.
