My wife and I took our daughter for a birthday lunch at Le Colonial on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed! We ordered the Houston Restaurant Week Lunch. It was fantastic! We definitely will be returning!
Le Colonial serves delicious food with tasty spices and it was a wonderful place to celebrate my birthday with my sister!
Fun and delicious!
Outstanding service! Waitstaff was very attentive. Due to COVID-19, the bar is not fully stocked, but my girlfriends and I enjoyed the Martinis. Lovely girls night out.
Birthday lunch for a close friend. The manager was extremely nice and brought a dessert and festive candle.
We've been to this restaurant so many times and they never failed us. Thanks!
Creative cuisine and attentive and informed staff. We really like this restaurant!
The food was AMAZING. The service was great and fast. I will definitely be returning soon. Thank you for everything!
Great food. Excellent service !
I usually love this place but on Sunday I had the worst service and food and drinks were not up to its normal standard. I was quite disappointed.
Good Afternoon, I am so sorry that you didn't experience the top notch service that we strive to offer. When you have time would you mind please providing the name on your reservation so that I can investigate and coach the team so that this doesn't happen again? I really appreciate your feedback as it allows us to refocus on our service expectations and get better. Regards, Martin
The best part of Le Colonial is the consistency. The checkin process is always quick and easy. The waitstaff/service is always excellent. The food is always spot on.
Great outdoor seating option. The food was great but did not have an authentic taste to it in comparison to other places in Houston.
We had to wait for our table so we went upstairs for a drink. The hostess was very confused as to where to seat us. We were told to sit on a loveseat and the another person told us to get up right away as the table was for someone else. This was handled in a very rude manner by saying “why are you here? This is not for you”. We were not offered another table. Communication with the hostesses was horrible. One did not know what the other was doing. Then we stood around but were not allowed to order a drink. Finally the hostess placed us at another bar table but warned us we needed to leave by a certain time. This was not a pleasant situation. We understand operations are different during Covid but I don’t think it is that hard to manage the circumstances with operational adjustments. Most of all, there is no reason to make a customer feel bad for trying to be a customer. We were seated at our table outside as per our reservation and the service was flawless.
Good Afternoon, Please accept my sincerest apologies for the series of service mis steps you experienced while waiting for your table. Yes covid has certainly made it interesting when trying to provide an area for guests to wait as we cannot allow service for those who are standing due to the mandate. I apologize that you were moved around and this is unacceptable. I will be sure to coach the team so that this is avoided in the future. Thank you so much for your patronage...we appreciate it!
I always enjoy myself thoroughly at Le Colonial.. they stopped having the DJ on weekends so that’s kind of a bummer.. but the food is always a hit. Never disappointed.
Valet parking available.. .Seated outside patio, attentative service, lovely presentation, generous portions, flavorful combinations, all delicious. Wine Director Trevor has out together a top notch wine list that does not ignore Europe. He knows his stuff. The cocktail selection is quite nice as well. Recommend this restaurant.
Had a great time as always. The cuisine is unique and they not only have great food but also amazing drinks and dessert. Especially good for houston restaurant week. Highly recommended!
My parents gave this place a stellar review, so I was excited to give it a try with my fiance and another couple. The ambiance was perfect and I loved the styling of the restaurant. Everything was increasing the expectations.
My fiance and I started with the ceviche and shrimp rolls. The Ceviche looked spectacular, but tasted like nothing. Literally like water. The shrimp rolls were shrimp rolls, I don't know what i was expecting, but i was expecting more than a plain shrimp roll.
My Bon Mi main course was really flavorful, but too much sauce on the pork. Had some beef soup as a side course, nothing special. My fiance had the tofu curry, she really enjoyed it.
I can deal with okay food at a talked up restaurant (I travel 30 weeks a year and get to eat at $100/head restaurants frequently) but our service was atrocious. The server was a young female about the same age as our group and she was short and had a notable attitude that wasn't 'masked' by the mask on her face. Left her a good tip, in case the attitude was brought on by the thought of a young group leaving bad tips, but we won't be back.
Great food, great service!
We love to dine here the food is always good and the ambiance and decor make you feel transported to a more tropical place which is so nice now during the pandemic. They are also doing a good job of making their guest feel protected!
Attentive service, delicious food and nice ambiance. Enjoyed the outdoor seating.
The place and the food are beautiful. It's like taking a little vacay to tropical Vietnam.
Restaurant Week menu outstanding, fun to try new things. Excellent service, beautiful space, felt like the most “normal” dining experience we’ve had in months.
Great food, lovely decor but somewhat poor service. In all fairness my drink did stay full but the waiter was gone for long periods of time.
Thanks to our server Yevgeniy for great service. Great
The flavor of the food was very good but the meat was bad. My husband ordered filet mignon medium rare but the meat wasn't filet mignon. It was hard and chewy and I've had plenty of filets to know this isn't one. The dumplings and crispy rolls were very good but I'm not sure I care to return.
Food was great but service was rushed and unfriendly. How about saying hello and welcoming us before just asking to take our order? How about asking if we’d like dessert before bringing our bill? It was my birthday but no one even asked if we were celebrating anything special. Just kind of cold.
Food and service was fantastic! My friend and I dined at Le Colonial on a Saturday evening, and it didn’t disappoint.
We had several small plates to share. The chicken dumplings, which were good and flavorful, but I’m weird about texture so it was a little off for me. The tuna tartare was excellent, and the taro chips were perfect. Our favorite dish was the shrimp curry. We shared and couldn’t finish it. An abundance of large shrimp, a little bit of spice, amazing flavors.
The people watching was fantastic! We sat on the patio so we got to see everything going on. But the reason I deducted a star for ambiance is that while we were sitting there enjoying our dinner and wine, deep in conversation, when a bunch of motorcycles (maybe more like dirt bikes) came by, obviously wanting to cause a scene. Huh?? They were doing wheelies and revving their engines. I guess that could be some good people watching, but wasn’t expected at all, and slightly annoying.
It was fine aside from our waiter that made now effort and seemed like he didn’t want to be there or waiting on us. It was our friends first time and honestly, the waiter was so bad it really ruined the place for them and us.
The food is tasty and fresh. Professional waiters with white table cloth service.
Delicious menu, great service and perfect location!
Food was wonderful. Recommend the cocktails and just trying something different.
It was a birthday celebration for a good friend during lunch. We chose to sit outside and loved it. There are several plants and flowers which make the area inviting. The wait staff was very attentive yet not obtrusive. Food was brought out promptly and was cooked to perfection. We had the crispy shrimp and pork rolls, the crunchy salad and the spicy chicken stir fry. The waiter added a substantial sparkler along with the delicious créme brûlée we ordered for dessert. All personnel wore masks. Guests are expected to wear a mask upon entering the restaurant. The valet was polite and efficient. Will definitely return soon.
Incredible food! Our server was the absolute best.
Get place to have lunch!

innovative menu and nice outdoor seating area for a quiet, relaxed meal
Food and ambiance were very good, as usual. However, the table service during this visit was not up to our expectations from recent experiences. It took over 15 minutes for anyone to attend to our table. We really like this restaurant, so we're hopeful this was a single situation.
