Always outstanding service and exceptional food!
Great location, very nice restaurant and ambiance, good service and staff. Great food and awesome Vietnamese revisited dishes. Great to see something different with those standards in Houston!
Duck was chewy, not tender at all, crust should have been crispy. Salmon, as easy as it is, was burned on bottom and not medium as requested. Chicken was disappointing, when you charge that much, at least give pasture-raised chicken. No worries, many will not know the difference. After all you don't go there for the " food ". Waiters VERY nice but not professional.
Unfortunately eating outside in Houston heat with the kitchen out of tuna tartare made for a lesson than pleasant experience at one of our favorite restaurants.
Le Colonial has been a favorite for a long time. Great food, great cocktails, great ambiance! Last nights meal was my least favorite. Too much salt, things overcooked, not tasting great, and really slow food prep and service
Best option for a spicy East Asian food place, with a touch of French perfection. Superb!!!
Amazing i love this place. They never disappoint.
We have missed dining at LC and it was a treat to return! Thank you for helping us celebrate our anniversary! Outstanding service and excellent food. We will be back!
Friends birthday, Tres bon.
Had a great time!
Excellent food and service. I wish they wouldn’t block cell phone service as we have a small child and need to be kept aware of any emergencies.
Excellent food...atmosphere and service! Lively and good value.
Very nice in every way. Background noise main indoor dining area was very loud. Difficult to hear each other. Thanks for asking.
The food was delicious and priced well for the River Oaks District. The meat was tender for the bo luc lac. The egg rolls were cooked well and brought out at the right temperature. We liked that they had vegan options. We were a party of 6 and only 5 sets of silverware were laid out. When I requested an additional set after the small plates had been brought out, I was brought the silverware piece by piece sans napkin. The cocktail menu was delightful too for the summer season and humidity of Houston. About as close to Saigon as I’ll get right now.
Charming atmosphere with imaginative dishes. Attentive service. I’ll be back!
It was good & fun but we waited a long time to get service for drinks and food throughout the meal. I really love your restaurant but this was not the normal experience
Excellent food together with a relaxing ambiance. Recommend
Amazing and Jenny rocks! The bar area is a lot of fun! The food will blow you away!
Absolutely outstanding experience. Great service, spectacular food.
Great food as always. The service was fast even with a busy lunch crowd. The hostess was very accommodating and welcoming.
While taking about 10 minutes to get us seated, once we were seated, we were immediately offered beverages by a friendly member of a waitstaff. This prompt and attentive service persisted throughout the meal with our waiter being very attentive to our table. The food was outstanding and had a great depth of flavors and offered unique dishes that not only could not be found at other establishments, but provided an eye opening cultural experience.
Hicimos la reserva de último minuto y todo fue buenísimo. L comida espectacular y un buen ambiente del lugar.
Great service and great food!
Very loud table next to us.
Couple next to us were arguing the whole time we were there. ☹️
Food and service were very good!
Nice place, the food excellent, I'll recommend the restaurant without thinking
Always A+ food and service!!!
Our waiter was really nice, the food was great but the rest of the team was not very Accommodating
Never disappoints ! Such a wide variety of choices and all delicious!
Had to wait about 15-20 mins. for table, but worth the wait!
What a unique and wonderful restaurant; dishes are not only fresh and flavorful but ones you can't get anywhere else. The cocktails are terrific too, and I'm not usually a cocktails person. Had the specialty snapper last time...OMG! But we love the green curry shrimp too, and quite frankly have never had a bad anything there.
The ambiance is sexy, classy, beautiful, an escape. The service is impeccable. Can be a special occasion restaurant or just a good place to have a phenomenal, casual meal. Bar area rocks as well. So if you just bring back your french fries (best I've ever had), you'll be PERFECT. We'll be back!
The service was below average, we had to ask several times for things, they didn’t pick up the empty plates.
We ordered coffee and tea for desert and they came cold.
A great atmosphere
My absolute favorite Houston restaurant!!! It was delicious, as always.
We’ve have enjoyed eating Vietnamese food for 30 years. Of course we have our hole in the wall places however Ke Colonial is a fantastic upgrade with a feeling of being in Vietnam enjoying exquisite cuisine. Our waiter, Juan the as excellent and very attentive. This is our go to when we want to enjoy high quality ingredients matched with exquisite entree’s.
Excellent as usual!
Food is excellent, but the service is lacking. Our waiter forgot about us and I had to ask the busboys for help.
It was a good place to celebrate my husband birthday, delicious food, beautiful local and great experience. Thank you
Everything was wonderful! Love the food and the staff is so welcoming and friendly.
