                                    I love the decor As well the food. The best way to experience the food is by doing family style- to enjoy more from the menu.

                                    We had a great meal at Le Colonial after a show at the Curran. The staff was polite and very accommodating to our group of 10. Dining in the greenhouse/atrium area was a unique experience and the food was all wonderfully well prepared and presented. We will definitely be back!

                                    This hopefully was a one-off but we made a dinner reservation for 8:30. At 10 we still hadn't received our main courses. They had said it was due to a 50 person party they had booked, but why offer reservations then? Several tables around us walked out.

                                    Die Reservierung über OpenTable lag trotz Bestätigung im Restaurant nicht vor. Der Tische war nicht bereit. Wir mussten an der Bar warten. Dort vergaß man uns und erst nach über einer Dreiviertel Stunde wurden wir zum Tische geführt. Danach dauerte es mit Bestellung noch bis zweieinhalb Stunden nach der gebuchten Zeit, bis wir das Essen bekamen.

                                    Have been here several times before and enjoyed it, but probably won’t be back. We sat for 15+ min with no sign of a server. Waited 45 min for our cocktails. Service all night was based upon us flagging the server down.

                                    Appetizers were great but the Lemongrass Chicken was throat searing dry, dry, dry and at $29 it was a big disappointment. Great atmosphere; very old time San Francisco (used to be Trader Vic's). Criticism: Wash the stairs. No excuses.

                                    My daughter and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner on the patio. Food and service were excellent - the Prawn Papaya salad was the best I’ve eaten. We’ll definitely be back!

                                    Excellent food, almost the entire menu is Gluten Free. The menu set up to share, portion sizes are generous. Wait staff were very accommodating with a friendly vibe. The outdoor dinning area was comfortable especially when the overhead heaters came on. Overall excellent experience. We plan to return.

                                    The cilantro and basil were old and wilted. Papaya salad was missing seafood’. Other greens were wilted and soggy. Leave it off if it is that bad. Not sure what pink sausage was on the wet noodle, but did not look appealing. Unfortunately not a good experience.

                                    We started with the mushroom pho and it was delicious. But that was it. The papaya salad, sea bass and brussel sprouts that followed were all underwhelming. Don't think the ambiance is worth the disappointing food and service.

                                    Food excellent … service even better! Nice varied menu with beautifully crafted sauces. Was very busy the weeknight we were there with several large parties. So noise level was relatively high. Upstairs bar was closed as only open Wed - Sun as I recall. Had great discussion with Chef and GM Jeff. Overall wonderful experience. Look forward to new menu items!

                                    Was shocked to have to wait 48 minutes for appetizers that we ordered only to have the order incorrect. It then took another 45 minutes after the appetizers arrived for our entrees to arrive. Would not go back as other locations had better food and service.

                                    Tonight’s meal was the most disappointing culinary experience I can recall. I was so excited about introducing my partner to Le Colonial for her birthday/Valentine’s Day. It has always been one of my favorites in SF. Tonight was tragic - 2 hours to get entrees, and a piece of beef we didn’t even think was good enough to take home to the dog. My partner was ready to leave after the mediocre first course. All of this for $255 (not including tip). They over-booked themselves and had inferior quality food. The staff was doing their absolute best, and the ambiance never disappoints. I’m embarrassed and crushed that I made such a poor choice in SF, that I spent $300, and that my long time favorite restaurant did not rise to the occasion when they had the opportunity.

                                    The food was excellent; service was very slow. It is all one big room and a group of women next to us were celebrating a birthday and were extremely noisy. Made it difficult for my party of 6 to hear each other. We went on a Saturday night. Next time we will try the middle of week when it may be not so crowded and noisy. The service was very slow probably because it was a full restaurant. This was the second time there. The first time was in the middle of the week when the noise level was still high but not as bad as Saturday; the service that time was excellent.

                                    Disappointed with new menu. It’s a place we love to dine when visiting San Francisco. Shaken Beef and Pork Rib’s were delicious but shaken tofu and noodles were an odd taste. Desserts were on point. Mach’s tiramisu and Panna Cotta melted in your mouth. Poppyseed cake on the dry side. Service from Saul was fantastic didn’t really see our server..

                                    Even better than I remember and I had fond memories. Our waiter steered us to excellent choices of food and drink. Loved the portobello mushroom steam rolls for a change and shaken beef as always. Can’t wait to come back!

                                    Very comfortable seating and of course a wonderful selection of interesting items on their menu, made for a wonderful evening with our friends from Los Angeles and London.

                                    This is one of our favorite restaurants in SF. The food is outstanding and the interior space is so inviting. We have a lot of food restrictions in our family (gluten, dairy), but this is one of the few restaurants in the City where that rarely interferes with what we want to order.

                                    New Year’s Eve fixed price menu was delicious. Service by Jose was perfect. Couldn’t ask for anything more from this lovely restaurant.

                                    Yummy dinner! The only negative it was freezing in the restaurant and not cozy.....I think they kept the doors open due to covid but man it was chilly. Still love LC and have been going there for many years.

                                    Always a treat to eat at LaColonial when we visit San Francisco. Great food and drinks. Only complaint was that we hadn't finished our appetizer and cocktails when our dinners were delivered. Will be back.

                                    Don't know if its the pandemic or what. Our last visit was Jan 2019 and was great. This time fewer menu offerings, out of some wine by the glass, garlic noodles were doughy, Mexican coffee was lukewarm and it took 25 minutes after being seated to even see a waiter or get a glass if water
