Diner Reviews
  • "Our small women's group meets here regularly as it is quiet and we can talk and catch up with each other."

  • "Went here for Father's Day about 1:30pm. The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived and at first my thoughts were, Oh Boy! To our surprise the service was top notch and the food was superb. We will be going again."

  • "This our favorite Restaurant in the area. A wide variety of French-Vietnamese dishes. Try the escargot in a cream sauce. Wonderful. We go here often."

  • "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."

  • "S Vietnamese is still one of our favorites. This time I actually got by the shaken beef and tried the black cod. Delicious. also had the escargo which was wonderful. It is served in a coconut sauce and is quite pleasantly different. Topped off the meal with the Tiramisou."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "You can always get a great meal here. One of my standby favorites. I have tried nearly everything on the menu. This time I tried the Filet with Prawns. Extremely tender and great peppercorn sauce. The Chilean Sea bass is the best too (Ca Ri Ca)."

  • "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."

  • "just a very nice reliable place for upscale Vietnamese (albeit a bit more modern than traditional South Vietbamese dining), Good presentation and every dish was impecaccably prepared,"
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "This is a hidden gem - although located in the parking lot of Westminster Mall - this is an upscale and I do mean upscale venue for fusions Vietnamese dishes! Food is excellent and the service is great!"

  • "It is a classy and chick restaurant that I am proud to bring my friend there. The price is reasonable. When the owner Stephanie does the cooking, the food is fantastic when it is left to the staff , t is just plain."
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "The food is excelent and leans more toward the French influence in Vietnamese cuisine. We had three for dinner and each ordered an entree that we shared. Every meal looked and tasted great. This was our first time to this restaurant and we will return."
    Dined on 7/14/2013
  • "I enjoy the food tremendously with my family at S. Food plating was well executed. The Ca Hap Tuong Hot (Chilean sea bass steamed with black bean sauce) was amazingly delicious. We also ordered the “S” Favorite Sampler for Two which you get to samples a variety of Vietnamese cuisine appetizers. The egg-rolls and spring-rolls were done to perfection!"

  • "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."

    Dined on 2/21/2013
  • "We are a group of 7 persons having a reunio lunch at the S. restaurant. We ordered many dishes and they are all good except one (chicken and lemon grass), which is quite blend and tasteless. The best dish is cha gio, bun cha, pho ap chao."

  • "I liked it food was not great but it was good. The service was very good. My date and I shared an appetizer carmalized chicken. 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"
    Dined on 9/7/2012
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/25/2012
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/18/2012
  • "S is our favorite local restaurant. Besides the old standards on the menu, e.g., shaken beef, Stephanie adds new items frequently. It is always fun to try the new selections. Another favorite is the escargot in a cream curry sauce. Delicious. I will turn soon."
    Dined on 7/24/2012
  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants. At lunchtime, it is perfect with the kids. At nighttime, it becomes a romantic date spot. The menu is creative and unique, and the staff are friendly and very helpful. They bend over backwards to accomodate food allergies, and they seem to care deeply that we have a good experience."

  • "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."

  • ""S" is outstanding. The food, service and ambiance are excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who enjoys a nice quiet romantic atmosphere. Our waiter was attentive without interfering. He has worked there since the restaurant opened, and was quite informative."
