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.

This was my third time dining at Le Viet and it never fails to impress. I love the varied menu, the specialty cocktails and the attentive service. Everyone is great here.
Try Le Viet; you won’t be disappointed.

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.

Overall, experience was good. Food was a little bland (non-spicy) for Vietnamese... but adding a little hot sauce fixed that. Parking was tricky.

The portions are small, the food was fair -chicken and beef both fatty, and the kitchen service was awful. Each entree was delivered one at a time, with long pauses between each. We had to beg for water, repeatedly.

Menu was a typical Vietnamese menu. Food was good and prepared quickly. Atmosphere was much more upscale then most Vietnamese restaurants. We were there at 5PM on a Sunday so there were not many others eating while we were there. I would go back if the opportunity presented itself.
