“There is no signage for LSXO—you can spot the entrance of it tucked into a section inside Bluegold, but you’ll have to know it’s there. While Bluegold is light, bright, and airy, LSXO is its darker, edgier little sister,” says Vuong. “Both restaurants operate out of the same kitchen, though the menus are completely different. LSXO offers straight-up, honest, home-style Vietnamese cuisine—the type of food I grew up eating with my grandparents in the San Gabriel Valley

One of our favs in HB, never disappoints! Great ambiance and great food!
Amazing food, all fresh and unique. and amazing flavors
We had a wonderful evening, and the service was great!
this is the third time i have been to this restaurant (the first two PRE COVID) and this last time. It was a surprise birthday lunch for my spouse and our waitress (i think it started with an M) was an absolute delight. the seabass and octopus salad were superb as well as the cocktails. the space itself is absolutely gorgeous ; with views of the pier and beyond. thanks for having us.
Seriously one the best places to eat in OC. Shaky Shaky beef is amazing. shrimp spring rolls are great.
Excellent service and fine food.
Sloppy service. Servers look Sloppy and untrained. Server was shaking and unaware of the dinning experience. Food was not as tasty as it’s been in the past. Not worth the cost. Very unimpressed.
Great food, service and the location and view are outstanding.
Best Father’s Day lunch! So glad they’ve reopened. Love the food ambiance and service!
We had asked to sit at a table with the ocean view when we were making our reservations; we did not get that even though there were open tables. We thought the tables were intentionally left open for social distancing, but we saw other people get seated at their tables later. Also, once the other tables left (there are 6 tables in total and 4 were used), we (party of 2) were the only ones there for about twenty minutes before other parties came in. When we were the only party, all of the wait staff were loudly conversing as if no one was there. We are people fo color and the previous parties that were present were not people of color; because of how the wait staff’s (also Caucasian people) actions and behaviors differed while there were Caucasian guests present and not present, my boyfriend and I felt really uncomfortable. It made us feel like we were getting looked down on. Also, booking was difficult. It was not specify that I had to reserve specifically for Afternoon Tea; it only said what time would afternoon tea be served and I booked during that time. The host that called me about my reservation was not clear either about the time slots and did not know what the current tea menu was. Besides that, the food was great and the prices were affordable. The view would’ve been amazing if they had accommodated to our requests.
We had an amazing evening! We will definitely be going back.
Amazing food, as always! Anthony took very good care of us!
We love this place!! So delicious!! Try the shaky shaky beef and grilled pork spring rolls!!
Such a fantastic experience, the ambiance is like an elite club in New York and the food is out of this world delicious! A must try!
Only negative was the increase in the corkage charge to $35.
Timmy our server was amazing! Very attentive when needed and reserved when not. Great sense of humor and truly an asset to LSXO. We have been frequenting this location since it’s opened. My girlfriend works in the service industry and I am a partner in a chain of restaurants. We both agreed he was a shining example of great service and personality to match. LSXO is one of our favorite places to dine in HB. Hope to get him again. Thanks Timmy! - Eric & Celia
We waited 30 min to be seated or our reso then over an hour for our food...
LSXO is the bomb. Where else can you listen to 2pac and Biggie with great cocktails and amazing cuisine.
One of our favorites in all of SoCal. Consistent, fun, delicious.
The food is wonderful, the service great and the atmosphere lively and unexpected. We had to restrain ourselves from having our own dance party! Favorite restaurant in OC!
Fantastic as always! Couldn’t wait to get out of quarantine so we could come back to our favorite restaurant!
Amazing!!! Thank you guys SO much for opening! We’re so thankful we were able to join LSXO for your opening night!!! You guys are amazing! Best food! Best service! Best ambiance!
Always our 100% favorite restaurant!!!
A true hidden gem.
So try to keep it a secret.
Food is good and service is great. The place is beautifully decorated as well. The cocktails are great. But the prices are a little high.
We had a great experience...food and services was excellent! Will definitely come back. Already reserved my husband birthday dinner.
Food always fresh and tasteful .. beautiful view of HB
One of the best restaurant ever
Cozy and nice
Food are awesome and big
Amazing and lovely
Awesome experience!! Will definitely go back!! Great food and great drinks!
Heard raves about it. Grabbed an opportunity to celebrate a birthday there. Just an al around great time and food. Treat yourself to this hidden gem!
Something fun to do for a special occasion. I thought $17 for a mixed drink was a bit expensive. The Shake shake beef was good but for $33 the meat should have been a bit more tender. Would I go there if it wasn’t a bday or anniversary, probably no.
Great little spot for lovers of Vietnamese food, especially if you're not afraid of cuisine.
I have dined at LSXO many times and always enjoy my experience. However, this time I was extremely disappointed in the service. There was nothing warm, hospitable or welcoming about the service. I am not so sure I will be back.
Wasn’t seated until 30mins past reservation time. Food also took nearly an hour to come out.
I went wirh a friend who has dined there before and it seems that the normal chef went on vacation. Dishes were ok but not o point at all
Amazing food. Great service. Lovely spot with a great view of the ocean.
Authentic, delicious Vietnamese flavors paired with updated and creative dishes in a stylish, romantic, intimate, upbeat setting
Food was outstanding everything from presentation to the overall taste. The cocktails were great too. The only negative would be the rap music was a little tiring after an hour.
I can’t tell you how amazing the food was. Ambiance was amazing. Already want to go back...
