  • Lychee Mojito is a winner!
  • head upstairs
  • We've been coming here for 20 years and it's still one of my favorite NYC restaurants!
  • The quiet, low-lit second-floor lounge is the perfect choice for a romantic rendez-vous or a drink with the girls. Try the eponymous Le Colonial, with Tanqueray, cassis and raspberry puree.
  • Definitely try the Ginger martini
  • The namesake pho with foie gras broth is awesome
  • The bun trio is amazing!
  • Met here for lunch. Do have a nice lunch express option, at this restaurant been back a couple of times, The entrees are definitely french inspired, and small traditional french serving sizes.
  • Endangered chilean sea bass from argentina on the menu :(
  • Pork buns, seafood salad, wine, service
  • Pretty restaurant w/a colonial feel downstairs&a sexy, loungy, clubby feel bar upstairs. Vietnamese fusion - cod: moist&light, duck: tender, a touch dry, but still good. Service was attentive&good.
  • Vegetarian options are limited. They won't make anything that's not on the menu. What they do have is decent but not spectacular.
  • I'm not one for Vietnamese food but this place is so good it makes it hard to hate! Fillet minion was cooked to the right extent making it juicy and tender. A hidden local NY gem.
  • Very good food! Try it, you won't regret! Definitely ask to be seated on the second floor, it's more authentic.
  • Loved the lounge seating .. The wine selection was great . Loved the cod and king prawns..
  • I love this place, one of my favorites.
  • Shrimp summer rolls with hoisin & peanut sauce $11, grilled shrimp and scallop vermicelli salad $25, whole crispy snapper special & Chocolate sriracha peanut tart $11. Great setting & service.
  • Owned by my first NY friend Jean Goutal, Le Colonial opened 20 years ago at the same time as Daniel. Old New York vibes and tasty Vietnamese cuisine. Get the delicious and fresh Goi Cuon to start.
  • Delicious duck rolls. Perfectly cooked red snapper with a super crispy outside. *Some of my leftovers were not packaged up as requested.
  • Get the Apollo!
