Brodard Chateau Ratings and Reviews
Yes, I went to Brodard Chateau mainly because it was the closest place I hadn't been to on Jonathan Gold's best list. Not being a regular eater of Vietnamese food, my review comes from the perspective of one perhaps not familiar with nuance regarding this cuisine. But I'm still an obsessive enjoyer of good food, and that's just what I found Brodard Chateau to have. Solidly good food all around, with some pleasant surprises.
The restaurant: It may be a converted Victorian home, but it's still a pretty casual place. Jeans and T-shirts were the norm, and no pretention from the waiter, although service was on the more formal side. When we arrived at 4 pm it was mostly empty, and very quiet. No music? That seemed odd, until the place starting filling up shortly thereafter, and the chatter filled that audio-void. The whole seating layout is pretty broken up, as you might expect, with the full bar front and center. Wherever you sit, it doesn't seem crowded, which was nice.
Shaken beef: Excellent, and the favorite item we ordered for five in my party. If we weren't so full, we would've had another order. Tender beef, crunchy onion, barely cooked mushroom.
Hanoi style pork noodle: My favorite. Strips of tasty grilled pork sitting in a gravy boat full of fish sauce. Served with thin noodles and leafy greens. It's more of a salad, with a light acidity. I just loved the pork.
Chicken Curry: Curry in a Vietnamese place? Yup, and very good. My wife's favorite dish.
House fried rice: Everyone enjoyed this. The rice had a nice chew, and the little meat cubes were delicious. This version reminded me of the first fried rice I ever had about 45 years ago. They hit that same taste.
Overall a very good meal. All nine of us were happy with the food and the service. Drinks were generous and fairly priced. For nine of us, including tax and tip, the bill came to around $320. Not bad, considering there were eight martini drinks on the bill.
My wife had the wonton noodle soup and it was very good. I had the crispy noodle seafood dish and it was not very good. The noodles looked like potato or rice cakes. Very little seafood (one scallop, 3 shrimp and bits of squid). Usually, their food is very good. However, this one should be avoided. Other food is good. Next time, I will try something else.
In one word DISAPPOINTING. In every way...so sad. Went to the place with high expectations because of all the great reviews. The food was just so so, service meh. I think the place is too overrated. I'll be going back to my fav viet place for the next few days to make up for this super bad experience.
As much as I love Pho, there is much more to Vietnamese food than the Pho Shops. If you want to explore Vietnamese beyond Pho, this is the place to go. The hardest part of the meal was deciding which dishes we were going to get. Our waiter was extremely helpful by walking us through the menu and giving us recommendations. I was impressed with the waiters familiarity with the menu and his willingness to help us.
I am not sure what this house/restaurant used to be but it definitely looks like it is medieval. It has a very nice upscale ambience, not what I would typically expect. It was a nice surprise.
The food was wonderfully presented and it all tasted great. My favorite was the Hanoi Noodles along with the sausage spring rolls (Nem Nuong) and the Banh khot. The best part was when I got the check, it didn't cost a fortune. Next time I am in the area, this is at the top of my list.
we did not get to eat from the banquet menu but we took the suggestion from the waiter to order the dishes separately and it was worth it. This was my first time to eat here and I will be back if I am in the area. I love the crunchy spring rolls and the beef salad. I would recommend this restaurant to others. The service was good and the overall ambience was really nice.
The appetizers were very good as well as the green mung bean drink (đậu xanh lá dứa). Unfortunately the duck and bamboo shoot soup (bún măng vịt) was not. The broth didn't have the flavor of that kind of soup. It tasted like the broth from another soup (riêu cua)
This is our "go to" place for Vietnamese food with a French influence. We have tried so may menu items and have never been disappointed. The price and overall value is hard to beat. We plan on going there frequently whenever we are in the mood for Asian food. Excellent drinks as well.
We were short in time and there were 8 of us. Reading the reviews that it can be slow in between courses I was honest and told our server we needed to be out by 7. The server told us which dishes would be good for family style which made ordering easy. All the food was fresh and delicious. We were out of there by 7 with full stomachs. The server suggested the right amount of food.
