Le Colonial is a celebration of the seductive spirit and vivid flavors reminiscent of Saigon in the 1920s, located in the heart of one of America’s largest and most diverse cities.
A lavish downstairs dining room is adorned with period photography, overhead fans and leather banquettes, and flanked by a Parisian-Style sidewalk café. A dramatic staircase leads to a second level lounge, where a large bar, mahogany millwork and plush seating create the perfect atmosphere for cocktails and light fare.

    I have been to Le Colonial many times–the food is excellent and always delivers. However this past Sunday we came in for a late lunch (around 3 pm) and the service was lacking at best. Kids' juices never arrived, the appetizer was incorrect, and drinks took long to be served. Plus I had to secure my reservation with a credit card (which I'm okay with). Upon arriving you're told you can't be sat down unless the whole party is available. So instead of comfortably waiting sitting down and sipping on a drink, we wait outside. Why? I'm clearly already there, you have my credit card, so why not allow me to enjoy the place a bit longer while the rest of my party gets there?

    Excellent food and very good service, but horrid ambiance. Extremely loud. Downstairs there are many large tables where the diners seem to shout to each other. Upstairs, dreadful loud "music" blares away.

    Really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. The design is - as the name suggest - Vietnamese - Malaysian colonial style. All the small plates were delicious. I was a little disappointed by the green papaya salad. Whenever I see green papaya on the menu, I order it. I love the sourness of green papaya, but this salad didn't have the fresh sourness flavor. More coconut flavored and a hint of bitter.
