Le Colonial NYC is a truly delightful culinary experience. Like stepping into French Colonial Southeast Asia, this two-story restaurant, designed by Greg Jordan, consists of a main dining room with louvered wall panels, colorful tile floors, and vintage photos of Vietnam. Upstairs is an elegant, but lively, lounge serving a full dinner or just appetizers and cocktails. The lounge serves as an ideal setting for private parties and business dinners. Le Colonial NYC serves an authentic Vietnamese menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables. .For a groups of 5 or more, Le Colonial reserves the right to charge $25 per cover for no show reservations.

Great to have a cocktail in the upstairs lounge and then go downstairs for fine dining.

This restaurant was a gem with a beautiful dining room, excellent service, an interesting and very fine menu, and quiet enough for conversation. I'm sure I'll be back.

Food was good but it is very dirty and needs a face lift. The booths have duct tape holding them together and my table cloth was filthy.

An easy location to get to since it's in Midtown East. The Red Snapper was tasty, but also $48.

The food at Le Colonial was very good. The service was OK (the waitress had difficulty understanding orders). The restaurant is very attractive. It is definitely a place to which I will return.

Ambience, food and service were all very good, and considerably higher than the Zagat rating suggested. Another UES Vietnamese restaurant has the same Zagat rating and there's no comparison to Le Colonial in any respect.

Amazing service from the moment one steps into the restaurant, from the hostess, Manager, waiters & all staff!
Wonderful & Pleasant ambiance!
Food is beautifully presented, visually appetizing, and delicious!
However, prices a bit too high.

Le Colonial used to be a favorite spot for delicious food and serene ambiance. Unfortunately, my last several visits have been disappointing. Service is still pleasant but the quality of the food has gone down hill. I hope this will change

We arrived at an early dinner weeknight hour - 6:00. It was quiet and we were seated at a quiet spot as we requested. Service was attentive and the food was very good. The restaurant filled up more as the evening wore on. We were celebrating and the management comped us with two glasses of champagne- a generous touch. We will return and recommend this restaurant to others.

The ambiance and service was great. But the food is pricey (roughly $35-$45 an entree) and the quality of dishes was not as good as compared to previous years when I have been there.

I used to love this place! The food has gotten progressively worse in the last ten years. Spring rolls are heavier than they used to be. Scallops were not good quality. Love the atmosphere. Too bad.

My husband and I have patronized Le Colonial since it opened. We dined with friends, family and we had several business dinners at the restaurant over the years.
Last evening it was the first time I was disappointed. I ordered one of my favorite dishes: duck, and it was definitely under par. The duck was old, cooked much earlier, tough and full of uncooked fat. I didn’t send it back, since we were entertaining a friend, but now I think I should have complained before we left.

A nice dinning experience that dropped off after the restaurant got busy. A good menu selection and excellent food. But around 8PM when more and more customers arrived the service started to lack and the food/drink was getting stingy. Eat early.

This place was very inconsistent. A few dishes were great, while others were quite bland and uninteresting or just mediocre. Our waiter was not at all attentive and repeatedly forgot about us, but the floor manager realized this and took efforts to help us out. The ambiance was nice at first and the decor was elegant and understated, but the acoustics are terrible--once it got crowded the noise level was hard to bear.

The upstairs bar area is really beautiful, and the jalapeno margaritas were absolutely fantastic! We had dinner in the first floor dining room, where the wait staff took excellent care of us. It was a very diverse menu, with small plates as well as entrees. Our meals were delicious!
