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.

The service was lousy and the server made too many mistakes - eg. bring us wine that was not ordered instead of champagne which we did request, we had to ask for everything, like a fresh cup with the tea, a knife for the fish, etc. Even the hostess who sat us was argumentative and when I asked to attribute the mistake to a misunderstanding - she just kept on trying to prove that she was correct. The menu was not at all what we expected and had few vegetarian choices and the fish(the red snapper was tasteless and dry) All in all, very poor and we will think twice before reserving again.

It is located literally around the corner. The service was flawless. The food was exquisite. We enjoyed the fried rice, the garlic noodles, and the sea bass in banana leaf. As well, the sampler appetizer course was generous and a delightful way to sample many of the menu items. Although quite full and satiated, we shared the green tea crepe. Again, the perfect ending to our experience - a many-layered cake, not too sweet, and presented beautifully. We enjoyed everything!

The restaurant is elegant and quiet giving it an old-world, upscale feel. The service was exceptionally good and attentive without being intrusive, servers remembering that one of our party wanted his espresso with his dessert and the other after dessert and bringing them accordingly. We were impressed that they asked when to bring them, and then didn't forget. The food was tasty and well prepared. The restaurant prices are appropriate for the quality of the food and the experience.

The pre-fixe selections were decent and entrees nicely flavored. We oredered the shrimp salad roll and lotus root salad for appetizers which were excellent. One of my companions had the garlic noodles, the other the chicken while I had the turmeric monkfish.

It was quite extreme and very disruptive to the meal.
