Vietnamese
V-Cafe serves traditional Vietnamese food in the heart of TriBeCa, NYC. The cuisine has been, for thousands of years, oriented for balance and nutrition.

It uses an abundance of fresh herbs and vegetables for texture and color, marinated meats in spices rather than relying on excess oil for cooking or for enhancement of flavor. We feature authentic dishes from the North, South and Central Viet Nam. The foods of Viet Nam are prepared with both French and Chinese influences that date back some 2,000 years and one can see this reflected in the dishes served at V Cafe (VietCafe).

To start, try our Pho Ga Herbed Chicken Soup, Pho Bo Herbed Beef Soup or Ginger-Lime Lemonade and vegetarian entrees.

    À "Vietnamese restaurant" ruled by Mexican. Don't go there if you're looking for Vietnamese specialities... their food is boring, often frozen as the spring rolls... service is great, the server was very nice.

    An attractive, comfortable place with nice service. But... it would be hard to find blander, more boring Vietnamese food. The Applebee's of Vietnamese food. There were certainly no Vietnamese eating there when we went. Avoid.

    VCafe is an excellent choice for Vietnamese food. The flavors were wonderful, very large portions, very shareable - took mine home for lunch the next day and it was equally as good if not better, having aged a bit! We ate quite early so it was not crowded. The service was good and the waitstaff very pleasant. It is not in my neighborhood, but would go back there any time.

    The food is always very good and the staff super friendly, however they are not too attentive after the food is served. You will have to chase someone down for anything from extra napkins to the check. If that changes, it would make the dining experience so much better.

    we had to be in the area for an event and thought we'd get a bite of Vietnamese. We often eat Vietnamese food at a local place near our home. VCafe was no where near as good - the food was boring, bland and expensive. The place is lovely and people were nice, but we won't be going back.

    Large, boisterous groups plus loud music make for unbearable noise. Add to that lemongrass curry that was over salted, and ugly, unappealing looking dishes (chili calamari and chili tofu: what are those wilted green clumps that overtake the plates?) and you get the idea. The only thing worth eating were the vegetable rolls. We won't return.

    used open table for reservation, and it was easy...when we got there our table was ready, despite a reasonably crowded restaurant...we were pleased since Tribeca can be very busy, on any given night. The service was very attentive, the food was delicious, and we had a great table for 5 near the front of the restaurant; overall highly recommended

    The restaurant was closed for the weekend and we had to scramble on a Saturday night to find something else in the area. We had an out of town guest and the experience was embarrassing, to say the least and very disappointing. I would like my points credited for this most unpleasant event.

    The food was excellent at this restaurant. I had duck for my main dish and it was very tasty. We were a group of 7 and we all sampled each others main courses and everything was fantastic. The restaurant probably does more business with their takeout/delivery, than with actual diners in the restaurant - we couldn't believe how much food was being prepared for takeout! The service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry, so it was okay. I would highly recommend this restaurant :-)
