The food is amazing but we were distracted the whole meal bc sitting next to us was a family whose children were watching a movie on an ipad . The sound was on full blast so we couldn't carry on a conversation. We asked the waiter to ask them to use ear buds but we never saw him approach the table. It ruined our meal .

Wow! We frequent pho in Little Saigon but this menu knocked our socks off. The shaken beef was delicious- our waiter suggested it and it was incredible as was the wonton soup,Hanoi pork and garlic chicken noodles. It’s a cool rustic space with lots of large tables and was perfect for our group of 8. I can’t wait to go back again.

The quality of foods were not the same as once were. Minimal herb was used in the chicken salad; Vietnamese coriander is must for this disk. Will not come back again.

Excellent food and service. Went at lunch time and there were many families with children. Noise level was reflective the numbers of children in the restaurant. Very good overall experience.

Brodard chateau came highly recommended and the food did not disappoint, however the service was lacking and the food came our incredibly slow. We noticed tables next to us who ordered same or similar dishes receive their food before us even though they arrived much later than us.

It’s a great place with a variety of upscale Vietnamese food. I gave it a 4 because we didn’t eat one of the desserts because it was not good. The manager asked why didn’t we like it, we gave them our opinion and she didn’t take it off the bill. We didn’t ask for her to take it off but I think it would have been a kind gesture to do so.

The waiter forgot about our order and came back to ask us again what we ordered. Then we waited more than 40 minutes and the food came out lukewarm. We ordered hot bowls of pho and got 'cold pho' ~ who would like that? There's no apology from the waiter so we decided not to come back.

Service was good. I reserved for a party of 14. I even got a phone call the night before to confirm my reservations. The staff was very attentive and food was great. One thing that could have been better - I ordered the Chateau's Special Sampler as an appetizer. It came out last after everyone got their entrees. I was expecting it to come out first so we can eat it while we waited for our entrees. We did not really get to enjoy it since we were getting stuffed from our entrees so it was barely touched and was a waste of food and money.

I arrived shortly after the restaurant opened so it was pretty empty. The staff was very attentive and friendly. It was fairly dark which didn't work very well for me as I was alone and hoped to be able to
read the paper while I waited for my food. The food was very good, although the pork roll had sausage rather than grilled pork although it was described as grilled pork but not quite what I had hoped for. It was very tasty and I did enjoy it. Best to come back with several others because the food lends itself to sharing.

This was our first time visiting as my daughter wanted authentic Vietnamese food for her sweet 16th. The atmosphere the service the food we're all as recommended. We will definitely be back. Our waiter Andrew was sweet funny engaging accommodating he really made it special. One-might be that the menu had so many items we wanted much more than we ordered but everything we ordered was too much.

Service is good. Food quality is inconsistent from better to miss. The biggest miss was the beef stew having a whole lot of fatty chunks, which made it unpleasant. The portion for was also quite small. Others were ok to better.

We arrived at 7:25 for a 7:30 reservation. We were told they were waiting for a table to finish and would be a few minutes. After several minutes, I inquired and was told maybe 15-20 minutes. I was pretty surprised, unpleasantly. 10 minutes later, we saw a table open for 4 and asked if we could sit there, and just have a chair at one end. No, they said they had a nice table for 5 and we’re just waiting for the party to finish up. So we waited some more. At 7:59, they took us back to a table for 4 with a chair stuck at one end to accommodate 5. It was so tight that when seated, one chair would butt up against a nearby tables chair, thus blocking exit from the room for several other tables. We actually couldn’t sit because another large party was filing out and blocking the chair.

After eventually moving us to a booth, we enjoyed our meal. Our server was super nice and did a great job. We can’t fault him, but the 2 hostesses were valid and not helpful, almost disrespectful. It appeared they were not able to handle the large walk in demand that night. Reservations should always take precedence, IMHO.

We had small appetizers here. The Canadian escargot mango salad was delicious. We also has the famous spring rolls, I didnt expect the fried egg roll wrapper inside, but it was a nice surprise.

Calamari was good.

Overall everything was very good. Clean restaurant great for a date.
