The "Happy Hour" as stated on their website fails to mention that to get the drink special you must also buy an appetizer. Other that that slight misunderstanding, the spring rolls and Sizzling Beef I had were excellent! Glad to have found a new place to dine, though I miss Medi quite a bit.
Always a treat to have Pho here. We spent Easter dinner here and had a great experience!
Wide selection of appetizers & entrees; pho was excellent but was only one of many creative options. Service was attentive - and patient with Vietnamese food novices. Great value.
Being 2 p.m., There were only 2 other diners besides the staff eating. When we were greeted, I told the waitress that I made a reservation for 2 under my name. She acknowledged me but I doubted that she was going to confirm that I kept my reservation with OpenTable. The only reason I chose this restaurant was because I was able to make a reservation through OpenTable. I included a note that I didn't like cilantro and didn't want it in anything I ordered. I ordered the spring rolls to share. They were VERY greasy. I also ordered the Pho #1. I asked if it had cilantro in it. I was told it did but it can be left off. When my order came, there was cilantro on top. When I asked about it, the waitress that took the order came over, apologized and took it away. I told my husband that I hope they don't skim off the cilantro but instead remake it. The Pho came back quickly. As I started to eat it I saw a cilantro leaf. Then I started fishing out more pieces of cilantro. The waitress came back and I showed her what I fished out. She apologized and took the Pho away a 2nd time. When she brought me another bowl, it was freshly made with the veggies on another plate. By now I didn't have time to eat it. My husband had finished eating his stir fry. I gulped down about half the Pho, we paid and left. Didn't enjoy my lunch at all. No part of my lunch experience was above average. I've had much better. As a result 3 stars was a generous rating for average meal. It should be 2.5 stars.
This was our first time at this place - chose it b/c we were seeing Titanic at Signature. Food was good, but the service was slow and varied.
Dinner at Lotus was wonderful! Food was excellent and our waiter was great! Enjoyed the whole evening!! Great from start to finish!
I love that there are so many vegetarian options. I enjoyed the lemongrass tofu. Restaurant was quiet, and I wondered why it wasn't more crowded.
Dinner was good solid Vietnamese food. More expensive than most Vietnamese, but that makes sense because of the Shirlington location. This is a class act, not the usual bare table soup restaurant. So you expect it to cost a little more. It is still lower price than the others in the area. The food, on the other hand, and the service, exceed the quality of other nearby spots.
Very good Vietnamese food. I go here often and cannot figure out why more people don't. Love the crunchy spring rolls and noodles and wider selection of beers. Forget the cocktails.
Unfortunately, distracted wait staff could not get our order right.
