Le Colonial is a celebration of the seductive spirit and vivid flavors reminiscent of Saigon in the 1920s, 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.

    Took my friend for her birthday. Service was a little slow, but the Houston restaurants week menu was delicious! The table was for two and uncomfortably small for the amount of food

    The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is very attentive. Although the ingredients, preparation, and presentation were very good, I was hoping for a more authentic and unique experience. I would dine here again, modifying my expectations now that I know it is a fusion restaurant.

    The food at Le Colonial never disappoints. I’ve never had a single item from the menu that wasn’t outstanding. We tried the whole fried fish this time and it was incredible. So much flavor. The best I’ve ever had!

    Very poor check in experience as it seemed the restaurant was overbooked. There was confusion regarding my reservation and where I requested to be sat. We were seated 15 minutes after the original reservation time. Beyond that, the service in the strange area my group was sat in was very slow and somewhat unfriendly. The area was very loud, and the tables were too close together; thus, disrupting private conversation at my table. And, unfortunately, the food was very mediocre. This experience was nothing like my previous experience at Le Colonial approximately 1.5 yrs ago. Last night, my reservation was for business dinner purposes, and - quite frankly - I am embarrassed by my decision to dine at Le Colonial.

    Overall good meal. Had the crispy vegetable rolls and the shrimp stir fry. Both were strong items. The service was horrible and impacted the overall experience. We had to flag down the waiter for anything we needed and had to ask multiple times for the same thing.

    We choose to go to Le Colonial to celebrate a birthday. Although we have been there before, we were not disappointed. The service was great, the food was outstanding, we got to try a wine we were unfamiliar with thanks to the sommelier. I’m a very good cook and enjoy it, but I love going to a place where we get to experience food unlike anything I prepare and to enjoy it is a wonderful atmosphere.

    At the lunch hour, Le Colonial is beautiful and serene. Unfortunately, at dinner time they fill the room with club music. The thumping drum beat forces you to yell at your table mate. The food is excellent, but I was disappointed to have to work so hard to hear and be heard. Part of the pleasure of going out to eat is the good conversation. Le Colonial makes it unnecessarily difficult to have one.

    If you want a more intimate dining experience, go for the first floor. If you want something more lively, go for the 2nd floor. The food is always good and so is the service. The menu has something for everyone.

    Service was great ! Very noisy, I blamed a very "happy" group just next to us. My two invited friends didn't enjoy the food. The BANH MI THIT NUONG • Vietnamese Pork Sandwich wasn't what they expected. I believe they had a higher "bar".

    La Colonial is my daughter’s favorite restaurant and it was delicious once again! The Sup Ga Cay, crispy shrimp and pork roll, and fried rice were amazing as usual. The crispy vegetable roll was good but we didn't really care for the soy type sauce that accompanied the dish. Our server did a great job and was very attentive. La Colonial a bit pricy as it was $144 with to for 3 small plates, fried rice, soup, 1 cocktail and 1 coffee, but the food is very good.
