It's a beautiful setting and the service is extremely friendly. However the food is quite mediocre.. Such a shame. We had a bunch of dishes. Even the banh mih was not that great. Meat was overcooked or cooked too many times, same with a steak dish.

Food was excellent. Ambiance was very good, the service was just ok though. ( Service is also one of those things that can change easily from night to night.) Look forward to going back.

The restaurant appeared to be classy. The hostess was the waitress also. She appeared to be a young teen. There were several small children running around and screaming. I think they were all relatives of the restaurant owner. The music was loud. For the classy look of the restaurant I expected a more professional staff. The restaurant was not busy but service was slow.

The wait staff was dressed very casual which was odd considering most people dining in the restaurant were dressed business casual. It also took a long time for a drink, I had to ask on 3 separate occasions for the cocktail and it finally came when my food did.

Other than that, the food was spectacular!

Always delicious and authentic. Food is clean, crunchy, fresh. Can't go wrong with ordering anything. Especially accommodating. Service is fine and the restaurant is lovely. The sweet and sour soup brims with shrimp and fresh, clean vegetables. The do it your self, grilled shrimp and vegetable dish is delicious. Can't say enough good things about the place and its staff.

I'm a Vietnamese and I'm ashamed that I haven't been here sooner. Such a great find when it comes to delicious authentic Vietnamese food, calming ambience, and amazing customer service. The price is also very affordable for the quality of food that they serve. Overall, definitely my favorite and I will come here often!

Everything is always fresh and delicious at Le Viet. Love the food as it is filling without being heavy. The clean fresh tastes of the food leave one happy and elated. The sweet and sour soup is brimming with fresh vegetable and shrimp. The summer rolls are such a treat, I sometimes get 4 just for me.One diner had a beef dish that he said was delicious. I had a do it yourself frajita style shrimp dish with large rice (almost taco) discs to wet and wrap. Only down side is no place to park. Wait staff is knowledgeable and polite. Love this place.

The food here is so fresh and flavorful. The shrimp sliders contain the most delicious shrimp I’ve ever eaten. Amongst our group, we tried several of their speciality cocktails and all were well balanced and tasty (and strong FYI). The service, however, was pretty abhorrent. We had a 7 pm reservation and informed the hostess we would hang at the bar while we waited for our party to arrive, as we knew some friends would be arriving late and the restaurant was not even 1/3 full. She never checked back to see if we wished to be seated. At 7:30, I casually mentioned to her we could be seated at her discretion. Nothing. I told the bartender we’d like to sit down, which we finally did at 7:45. Our food did not arrive until close to an hour after that. They did bring all the appetizers and main courses at the same time, so at least we weren’t waiting beyond that, but why the wait was so insanely long on a Saturday night with a restaurant that was never beyond 1/3 full is beyond me. I’d hate to see how slow it is when it’s very busy. The food is truly spectacular, but I don’t know if I can get past the slow service to ever return.

Outstanding food. I especially love the Cha Ca La Vong - it's a dish that is not often found on Vietnamese restaurant menus and it is a special treat. It's a large portion though, worth sharing if you don't have a hefty appetite. Be aware that you have to wrap your own rolls with this, but it's worth the extra work. The Singapore Noodles and Beef Chow Fun are also fantastic.

We had a lovely meal here. Delicious quail, baby clams for appetizers. Soft shell crabs were delicious, as were the other entrees . The servers are very nice. This is a bit more than the homey Vietnamese restaurants nearby , but totally worth it.

The food was great, the service was even better our waitress helped us work through the menu as it is rather extensive. It was really quiet which is surprising since the food is really good as are the prices. They could of dimmed the lights a bit but that is me nit picking. I would definitely go again.

The dinner was planned for an organization to have a meeting. The service was very accommodating in both setting up and with grouping the check into 3 different bills. The food was enjoy by all and other visits were planned to try more of the extensive menu. Some of the highlights were an edible bowl holding the fried rice, a family soup with intriguing flavors, make your own rice paper spring rolls and a variety of Pho.

Inexpensive food and good service, but not the best Vietnamese food I’ve had. It lacked flavor and the calamari we got was very very chewy.

Completely disorganized. Bad service. Bad kitchen process. Zero response to reasonable requests. Entrees for a party of four were brought to the table up to 20 minutes apart. In fact, two people in our party received their entrees, then the table next to us received theirs, then we continued to wait. The response to the question about this was "some plates take longer to prepare." This is not a new thing only known by Le Viet. And good restaurants know how to deliver to a party of four at the same time. Our waiter (from whom we did not deduct anything from his tip) said he talked to the manager. Upon my request as to what the manager said -- he told us that he hadn't really talked to the manager. Thumbs up for the secondary honesty. But I will not be going back. Nor will I recommend this to anyone.

This place does not disappoint. Every dish that they right out was delicious. My entire family ate everything on their plates. We will definitely be back. Don't skip the pork sliders as an app. Our table had 5 orders of them and we wanted more. Then our entrees came out and they were even better!!

While it had been a few years since I was at le Viet, realizing that it was within walking distance of where I live, I knew I had to go back for a return visit. It was as good this time as I remember it from before. I was quite pleased with the roll your own shrimp rolls. Good selection of cocktails, although it seemed too early to run out of lemons.
