Standout Vietnamese fare for reasonable prices along a busy Richmond District strip. – In Short
Simple, clean decor with Asian instruments hanging on the walls sets a classy, low-key tone. The kitchen turns out a roster of predictable but solid favorites, including minced shrimp on sugarcane, pan-fried noodle dishes, clay pot cuisine and fondue beef that diners cook themselves in an aromatic vinegar broth of lemongrass and ginger. Vegetarian options go well beyond a mixed veggies plate with options like sautéed eggplant simmered in coconut milk and curry sauce.
Love this place! – I was so happy to come upon this restaurant recently. Hands down the best Vietnamese I've come across in the City so far. Slanted Door's ridiculously overbooked status set me out on a search - and I'm now extremely happy to have found a better alternative! The service is amazing, there's no wait and the decor is simple, clean with amazingly fresh and delicious food. My only complaint is the lack of more variety in the dessert menu (as I'm not a big fan of fried bananas). However, I'm sure those are good too!
This place definitely comes in first on my list.
One of the best! – This plain little restaurant puts out some the best Vietnamese food we have ever had. We truly enjoyed the whitefish in black beans, the nest was wonderful and the service was so friendly and helpful. This plae is a must go to. Enjoy it is well worth the parking hell.
woooooooooooooowwwwww – I love the food- it's always fresh and light. The waiters are so friendly and also helpful to guide me to real Vietnamese Authenic cuisine. Comfortable,relax atmosphere surrounds the resturant that makes me feel like home. The wide range between vegetarian and meat-lover are endless. My glass was never empty because the waiter promptly fill it up. Do I have to say more, the La Vie Crab, was roasted with booming flavor that every single crab meat, just melts in my mouth.
Vietnamese Delight! – Depending on where you live in SF, it may be a trek to get out to La Vie, but well worth it. We loved every dish we ordered, especially the Crab.
This place can be addicting - throughout the day you'll find yourself thinking about the food! Ask for Daisy and Sylvia, you'll be in good hands. They're friendly and warm to their customers and make sure you're dining experience is the best.
told as it is – La Vie has great food and i love the the i would tell everyone the try the ph'o (nobble and beef ball) or the crab but one thing that i love how they put the decoration of Vietnames insterment a picters carved in a type of wood.
My personal favorite! – I've been going to La Vie for over 3 years, since I read it's original review in sidewalk.com - now Citysearch. The sea bass is delectable, the spring rolls fresh and always perfect, the staff is so wonderful, I love this restaurant! My husband and I joke that we should get a meal plan here.
