    I’d originally booked an outdoor table, but with the rain, I called to ask what they plan for when it rains. The man who answered said he would move us inside. When we got there they still had us listed as seated outside and when I told the hostess about the earlier phone call, she was able to find us a table inside. We waited a little longer, but I appreciated them working with me to find ideal seating!

    Beware of sitting inside, especially in the gallery, it can get incredibly loud and you may not be able to hear the person sitting directly across from you! Otherwise delicious Vietnamese fare with some French touches here and there, and very nice staff. I recommend the beignets!

    Nice date night out, food was generally good, though pricey for what we got ($14 for Shrimp Spring Rolls is more than 2x what we pay from our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, though I realize this was better quality). The Redfish in Szechuan Chili Oil was delicious (though if you don't like raw peppercorns, watch out or pick them out). My wife's Pork Bun (vermicelli bowl), which is her go-to Vietnamese dish, was not near as good or as flavorful as our go-to Vietnamese take-out and was priced about 1/3 higher. I would say we probably won't be back, though the atmosphere does warrant an upcharge because it's a nice place.

    This is my favorite restaurant to visit when I’m in Austin. Everything is so delicious. We had six different appetizers today and they were all amazing. It was my birthday. The staff all signed a card for me (really loved the pisces season 🐟 comment). That was so sweet and unexpected. They also brought me coconut sorbet that will now be a regular on my order!
