We had a delicious meal and drinks at Xanh. They had nice drink options, delicious appetizers and main dishes. We ordered quite a few appetizers and wanted to wait to order dinner until after we had received our appetizers, this seemed to confuse our waitress, she offered to hold our order until we were ready for dinner, but we repeated that we wanted to wait on the dinner order until we had our appetizers because we didn't know how hungry we would be after the appetizers. When we were ready to order the main dishes we ordered quite a few. My sister said she thought we over ordered, as the quantity is quite large per dish. We ended up canceling one of the dishes. Thank goodness we did as we would have had WAY too much food. After finishing our meal and asking for boxes our waitress bought us our check. No asking if we wanted anything else, dessert, coffee. Everything and everyone else was lovely, but the waitress kind of put a damper on the whole experience.

Delicious food, and wonderful service. So many options, very quickly presented. Excellent cocktails. Very attentive server, not intrusive at all. One of my very favorite restaurants.

The all-you-can-eat lunch buffet suffers from two major issues:
1. Three of the dishes are labeled with "basa fish", "catfish", and "fish." In reality, they are all the exact same: basa fish. Unfortunately, basa fish is the cheapest and most toxic fish on the market. It is imported from the Mekong delta in Viet Nam, and comes from massive farms which are the most polluted in the world. Basa fish should not be consumed.
2. Service has deteriorated to the point that you get ZERO service nowadays. If you want a glass of water, you have to go to the next room and fill your glass yourself. Nonetheless, when the check comes, they offer three choices for your tip, "18%, 20%, and 22%." Really???

We remain regulars because Xanh earns our loyalty. Attentive service. A wide variety of shared dishes disappointed none of the six of us.

Xanh has great food, but we went there on a weekday around 6:00, and the noise was stratospheric. I sat across the table from someone I absolutely could not hear. When we exited the restaurant, a fire engine with a siren went by, and it was quieter outside than in. I'll never go there again. My throat was sore from yelling in conversation.

Very nice up scale Vietnamese eatery. Serving traditional Vietnamese dishes, plus a nice compliment of fusion interpretations on the region. Sophisticated & modern decor that is in keeping with the higher price points. Service was a bit spotty by the people are all very friendly.

We had dinner with friends before going to a play; we informed the server of this and she exceeded all of our expectations. We shared a salad, one appetizer, and two entrees. Everything was excellent and the presentation was superb. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
