Le Colonial is a celebration of the seductive spirit and vivid flavors of 1920’s French Colonial Southeast Asia, located in the heart of one of America’s largest and most diverse cities.

A lavish downstairs dining room is adorned with period photography, overhead fans and leather banquettes, and flanked by a Parisian-Style sidewalk café. A dramatic staircase leads to a second level lounge, where a large bar, mahogany millwork and plush seating create the perfect atmosphere for cocktails and light fare. Custom louvered shutters surround the west veranda, while an additional terrace on the north side is fully enclosed and features additional dining tables. The Lotus Room, anchored by a mural created by Swedish muralist Jonas Wickman rendered in gentle tropical tones, seats up to 14 for private dinners and wine tastings.
Dress code is business casual.
Gratuity will be added to parties of 6 or more. We only allow a maximum of 4 for splitting checks.

The ambiance was lovely and with weather nice - sitting on the patio was a treat in what would typically be a warm Houston evening. Our waiter was attentive and prompt. The food was very good. We ordered the spring rolls, cabbage/grapefruit salad & pho then split the bo luc lac. Delicious meat and pho was excellent. We probably should have gotten something other than spring rolls because those were nothing extraordinary. They were good but should have gone with something we couldn't get some where else.

Great effort at providing the "distancing" and at the same time, the introduction of the plants between tables made for an attractive interior that did not seem weird or empty. Music plays a role too. Great job.

Our first time eating out since the shutdown. It was so much fun! The entire outdoors of the River Oaks Shopping District was teeming with people eating in outdoor areas of restaurants or just out walking. Le Colonial was very busy, inside and out, while complying with table distancing requirements. The employees were masked. We sat outside out of an abundance of caution, and it felt perfectly fine. As usual, the food and service were excellent. I would like to see a wider by the glass wine selection though.

Waiter did not make sure the order for an allergy was taken correctly. My daughter got sick even after asking several times about order. You must speak to someone knowledgeable when someone dining has a specific allergy.

Service was weak at first. Believe they forgot about us. After speaking with the host and manager, we got our orders in and they took care of us.

After the slow start, service was good and food is amazing. Great drinks too.

Many people think it may be too early for restaurants to open. Today is the first day in Houston and if restaurants follow the protocol this one did, we will be fine. Excellent food, service and extreme anti viral cleanliness.
