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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
