The service has a lot room to improve compared to the food: our waitress took away the half-finished drink without asking, we also felt pressure to rush at the end of our course.

Celebrated the Mother’s Day here with my family for a party of 6 and I am very happy of the choice of restaurant. The ambiance was beautiful. Perfect for the occasion for sure! The food was amazing! All of what we ordered was delicious! Photos attached. From appetizers all the way to the desserts, we all loved them all! It was definitely Vietnamese cuisine with a nice modern twist on flavors! We had everything shared by family - family style, per our server’s suggestion and it was just perfect! They had a nice sized bar and ample of choices of drinks and cocktails. Service was good, in spite of the day being very busy because of the occasion. She was awesome when it came to knowledge of menu and drinks, and her suggestions were on par! Ambiance was great, with their beautiful wall papers all around! Parking was a bit difficult. There was a valet parking area but something was happening next to the restaurant ( apparently shooting a movie or video) that made the parking area super crowded and hard to get to. I’m sure it wasn’t the case on any other day. Overall, this restaurant was great and I would go back to it again for sure!

Been here a few times, the food is always the star of the show, the crab salad, whole fish and spike lemon are a must. Kiana is a rock star and takes great care of us, be back soon :)
