    Server had no idea of food on menu. Told us one dish was spicy when it wasnt. Told us about another side and the kitchen was out of it. Ripped vinyl seating taped up. Special short ribs was good. Decor beautiful. Too bad the service was so bad.

    A Super Restaurant!

    So we decided to go to Le Colonial one fine evening. All dressed up and ready to experience what they have to offer. The place is very pleasing to the eye. The service is Fantastic (couldn't be better) not snobbish at all but friendly & professional. The food was tasty… try the red snapper, one of their signature dish… delicious! The atmosphere is like being back to the 20’s in Saigon. A little expensive but you can see it is a high class restaurant.

    Past its prime

    Restaurant week visit was our last. The food was obviously pre-made and served fresh out of the refrigerator and/or microwave. Poor quality food and very poor value meal. Ok for a drink upstairs, but that's it....

    Food is no better here (maybe less inspiring/tasty?) than your neighborhood Vietnamese place. Restaurant Week dinner menu was very boring - though not sure if it is good that they used things off of their regular menu or not... -portions tiny (entree same size as appetizer). Though there were two dessert choices on the menu we weren't given a choice - just thrown a tired bowl of sorbet. Creative? Definitely no. Waste of $35 - won't be back.

    Definitely Not What It Use To Be!

    I just came from having dinner with some friends from out of town. I was looking forward to the meal because in the past it had always been excellent. Unfortunately, this place is not what it use to be! Two of us ordered shrimp dishes and they were both sub par. My yellow coconut curry dish was supposed to be mildly spicy...not only was it not spicy... it didn't have any flavor at all! It was lukewarm, there was hardly any sauce and the sticky rice did not have even a hint of coconut sweetness that I love. I was so disappointed and a little embarrassed for having raved about it to my friends.The only reason I didn't give the food one star was because the lemongrass organic chicken was the only dish that had flavor. But, it just comes with dipping sauce...no rice...no vegetables. Anyway, it really was not worth the trip to the east side from Harlem! Such a shame this once great restaurant has sunk so low.

    Phenomenal and Completely Worth It

    I can only simply say it was one of the best restaurants I have been to in NYC. The atmosphere was posh and the prices appropriate for the surroundings. The service was impeccable. I would come here time and time again. I had the Colonial 28 and the waiter offered to mix it, but I wanted to taste each crumb :) When I mixed it myself after tasting every single item, I felt a sensational taste in my mouth! I would recommend to anyone looking for a sophisticated atmosphere and exotic tasting experience.
