                                      Horrible service. Waited 15 min to get attention from the staff finally the asked the host to take our order. All of the food we ordered came out in 10 min. No explanation for the dishes, no one asked if we needed anything. Waited another 10 min for someone to clear the table and get a check. Finally, gave my credit card to the host and he gave me an attitude back. They were over staffed compared to most restaurants in the city but everyone just stood around as if they did not have a leader. Marc would not be proud of the man standing behind the host stand.

                                      I ate here before, during restaurant and the food was excellent, unique. This time the menu was limited but the dishes weren't so interesting. It was quite because we had a table at the front, but it wasn't a spectacular setting and the food, while good, was nothing special. It was disappointing but that was probably my fault. The restaurant week specials were delicious but this time they weren't so special. Still, the food was good, something from the tons of Chinese and Italian restaurants, so if you are looking for a different flavor, try it.

                                      Food and service was really good! The waiter was super friendly, the food tasty and fresh. I was dining alone and ordered a starter and an entree, but both dishes came at the same time. The atmosphere in the restaurant was vibrant, but the sound level was extremely high. Overall a good experience

                                      Went to celebrate Laos New Year, we were quickly seated when we arrived. Chose the Laos New Year menu, which included a big array of traditional dishes, all were superb and came out quick and piping hot. Ambiance and decor was very modern and clean. Chef and his mother came to check on us and made us feel like we were at home. Would highly recommend and will for sure be returning in the near future ☺️

                                      The restaurant was packed, and as we walked in, we all remarked on the delicious smells of the food. We were not disappointed; the meal was terrific (our first taste of Laotian food) and service was outstanding.

                                      We totally enjoyed the food and the service was wonderful. The appetizer quail and spring rolls were fresh and very tasty. We had for are main course the yellowfin tuna tartare was delicious . And finished with terrific home made ice cream. We can't wait to go back. The place is very noisy so for people who want a quiet dinner not the place for you.

                                      A shout out to the outstanding staff at Khe-yo! Both times we were here over the last month, we found the staff really attentive. We attended with a large group of 12, and they didn't miss a beat with drinks, appetizers, entrees, clean up. We can back for a birthday with 4 guests, and the service was the same. Sharing is really easy with their generous portions and varied items (fish/shrimp, chicken, or pork). Will definitely be going back again!

                                      The staff were great, the restaurant/bar looks cool, the drinks were good, but the food was underwhelming especially for the price point. The food wasn't bad, I mean, it was cooked well, it just seemed like average, overpriced Vietnamese food. Perhaps I was wrong, but I was expecting Laotian food. Maybe I ordered the wrong dishes? I don't know, I was confused.

                                      was quiet bc we were outside. The main room seemed to be bustling. We’ll be back.

                                      The wine selection at Khe-Yo is amazing -- very good and not too pricey. The menu choices were rather limited but what we tried was pretty good. A problem was that, when we needed to take home some left-overs, we were just given boxes we had to fill ourselves, which seemed odd for this restaurant. And the place was quite packed and quite noisy. But very cheery atmosphere. So some good and some could be better.

                                      The food was alright but not great. Definitely not worth the price it was. The drinks are good but I wouldn’t go back.

                                      The tables are too close to each other. We sat just next to the corner table and we had to move every time they were ordering/ being served. The small plates are too small and large plates are too large. We ended up ordering more than we could eat. I wish we were informed about the quantities when we ordered. The cocktails are good.
