My favorite restaurant in San Francisco.
Whenever I'm in San Francisco I go there at least once. I went there for the first time 5 years ago and I keep coming back.
It's always just fantastic. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything. I've always had a wonderful experience each time I went. The food is always amazing, they have some pretty cool cocktails and one of the best wine lists I've seen around.
They always have a tasting menu of some kind and they're always the best deal, but everything on the menu is just fantastic. It's heavy on seafood, but non-seafood eaters can also find wonderful items on the menu.
They can't do anything wrong for me. I'm in love with this place.
Ask for Hoang as your waiter and you'll be in good hands!
Love Love Love this Place. This is a great restaurant to experience a night in a far away land. The food is over the top tasty. The drinks are superb. Attentive wait staff. Large tables, little away spots for groups and large places for events.
Horrible service!. Watch out diners! The waiter added on extra portions of appitizers, (not informing us of course.) And when we questioned the check, he said "well you ate it!" then stormed off and slammed the check book on my chair. The manager was worse. We let him know that the waiter insisted we try the appitizers, although some of our group are vegetarians. In this place patrons are NOT first. The food was not even close to good. The banana boat desert was bitter, pork chop was dry, lobster was dry. At the end our 40.00 appitizers turned out to be 200.00, and the manager only took off 50.00. If you insist on going here, please watch your check!
Go here!. I?ve been here before and each time, I have had a very pleasant dining experience. On top of that, did you know this restaurant is teaming up with StreetSmart4kids? It?s actually really cool what they?re doing. I just heard about how SS4K is a nonprofit organization that helps underprivileged teens stay healthy. They are running their ?Dine Out and Donate? campaign here (as well as approx. 70 other restaurants in SF) during October and early November. After having a fabulous dining experience, just fill out the donation form when paying the check (minimum donation $3). This is perfect for people like me, who love to eat out all the time and also like to give back to the community. Check it out for yourself on the StreetSmart4Kids website!
Fabulous Wedding Venue. I got married and had my reception here a couple of years ago and the service and food were fabulous. The ambience is spectacular and the food is mouth watering especially the appetizers. I will be forever grateful to the management and staff for creating such a beautiful memory.
tasty food, great price.
very nice place, and the food was tasty and unique. wasn't as upscale as people are making it out to be, i felt it was a nice date place, or a nice evening out. upscale but not upscale enough where you warrant stuffiness. i think between me and my girl the bill was like $150 (drinks, appetizers, main and deserts) so very reasonably priced...lots of people claim it's overpriced/expensive, but it's what' i'd expect for a 5-star type of place. i'd definitely go back for special dinners or if i'm just in the mood for a nice meal. they had a jazz band playing too, which was a classy added touch. nice bar upstairs, separated from the main dining room visually.
whine whine whine. the service was fine...in fact any place of this type of caliber is going to have good service. that's the standard at restaurants like this. i find that when people go a nice place, they expect servers to jump around and dance for them or something. no the service wasn't like a ciprianni or gordon ramsey restaurant, but it wasn't a TGIF.
Very SNOBBY service!!!!
Even worse if you don't order drinks or spend much on drinks when your there.
Man, the service was horrible!! I hope the managment reads this and either fires their waiters now and replace the or give them customer service classes!!!!
Super Romantic place. Kind of dressy place but the ambience is super romantic that worths dressing up for. Food is great too. The combination of Vietnamese and French are blended very well. Wine selections is good too.
Beautiful Food, Beautiful Place. The restaurant itself is stunning. The decor is very elegant, as is the food (vietnamese fusion). But, it's a bit overpriced. And I had a shrimp dish that was really lovely, but really underdone. There's a certain attitude that comes with poshness, which I don't find very welcoming. I would recommend this place for a special occasion.
Cool vibe, crummy food. Very cool lounge to grab a drink and possibly an appetizer - good vibe, very relaxing atmosphere. The signature drinks are interesting but I wouldn't order any of those we tried - the signature martini tasted a lot like wheatgrass from a health food store. Their signature spring rolls were good, but slightly overfried. Dinner itself was unfortunate - the special shrimp in the sugar/chili sauce was a meager portion of only 4 small shrimp and they were tough and had a very strong fish taste - nearly inedible. The bass in miso-honey glaze was extremely dry and nearly lacking flavor all together. Both arrived luke warm at best. I was insulted to pay over $20 an entree for food that was truly unappetizing and would never return for a meal. Lastly, the service here was what I could only describe as "cranky".
