I've been there before with friends and liked it.
This time, my friend and I arrived pre-theater on Saturday night and were delighted with Indochine when we first came in.
But within a few minutes, there was a very long table of screaming/screeching women right in the middle of the floor. And I mean they were screeching at each other.

It drowned out and destroyed what should have a been a wonderful dinner.

For this kind of event, you should be putting a group that size in a private room.

First of all, as soon as you walk in, it is quite beautiful, but then the aroma? For some it can be lovely but for our entire group, not so much. It smelt like a Florist Shop - HEAVY floral smell with way too many great flowers - overwhelming. But as gorgeous.

The food - some was great, like the apps, but the dinner not as great. The salmon did not taste quite right and we ate only a small portion of it and informed the server, but no reaction and to no avail.

Not going to be a repeat customer.

I went for restaurant week. The salmon entree was very average. Thebice-cream portion was tiny. The food is not as good as it used to be. I do not recommend.

After walking past it for decades , I finally visited Indochine for Restaurant Week 2018.
I am glad that I did. The food was delicious and satisfying, and the service was terrific! For appetizers, I had the tofu salad while my sister tried the lotus. Mine was tasty, but hers was better. For our mains, I selected the spicy chicken and she chose the salmon. Both were really good, but I liked her salmon (it had an amazing char) better. We both went with the sticky rice for our sides (which were included at no extra charge). We also selected the same desert, a delicious slice of lemon tart. It was the perfect size and really finished off the meal beautifully.
I cannot wait to return.

Consistently perfect. Incredibly prepared food, with a menu that is not daunting, but in fact, exhilarating. The decor and beautifully dressed waitresses transport you to colonial Vietnam, minus the political drama. Dimly lit and romantic is the scene here. Yes, there are larger tables for groups, but this is the place to impress your date. If you do not order the duck as an entree, you are doing something wrong in life.

The food was delicious, and the restaurant has a great feel. It's definitely going for a hip vibe and it achieves it. The staff is a little inattentive, and not really into the clientele, but they are perfectly nice once you engage them directly, but it's on you to ask for things. There are some really wonderful signature dishes, and I think this would be a great place to have your birthday. The value isn't bad either, and the cocktails were very good.

Good scene and similarly looking crowd as always. We asked to cancel a couple of dishes which they said they would, then the check came and they were still on, and we asked them to take them off, and assumed they did and we didn’t check, and they hadn’t. Otherwise a good dinner, experience and time.

Very tasty and creative Vietnamese food. Loved the fried rice with shrimp and scallions--it had both tiny dry shrimp and fresh shrimp. Nice lively atmosphere however I thought the noise level was too much and table were spaced too close. But I would come back just for the food.

Visiting New York from London for my sisters 30th birthday. Booked this restaurant as the menu looked lovely (reservations were easy to make) and there were quite good reviews with regards to the food but not the service. I can clarify that the service was APPAULING - most of the waitresses thought they were too good to be there and were not at all warm and welcoming. It is such a shame as the place has potential but the staff had let it down. The tables are also very close together with no room to get up without knocking into the table next to you. Our waitress in particular kept elbowing AND leaning on my sister when taking orders and serving the tables either side of us. The food was delicious, can't fault it at all.

Food was okay. the entrees were better than the starters. Initially the waitperson was not very pleasant and seemed very unhappy. Mid meal her attitude did improve. Hostess had zero personality and was put out that she had to retrieve our checked coats. The experience as a whole was disappointing.
