I met a friend here yesterday for lunch and though I felt a little out of place with my workout attire, I was treated with the upmost respect and kindness throughout our meal. We were greeted with smiles and our server was kind enough to explain any questions we had. I loved the fact I had a real vegetarian pho... More

A friend who lives nearby wanted to dine here. The restaurant was comfortable and about half full for a 7:00 dinner reservation. The waiter (Timmy) was quite attentive and helped us with a few of the dishes. Three of us are worldly travelers and certainly enjoy Vietnamese food, especially where we can share dishes. I had egg drop soup and... More

A friend and I stopped for lunch yesterday. The weather is cool and rainy and we each ordered a bowl of Vietnamese noodle soup with beef. It was good and the spring roll was good and delightfully presented. Service was attentive, but not overbearing.

Amazing customer service and food. The spring rolls are the best I have had and the lemongrass chicken with tomato rice was delicious. Be aware that the fried banana dessert is enough for four people!

Vietopia has been around for years, always the go-to place for upscale Vietnamese food in a beautiful French Colonial setting. Maybe it's the competition; Vietnamese is way more available than it used to be. Maybe it's the difficulty parking. But I believe the place has become fossilized, with a menu that never changes. Example: clay pot used to be a... More

This place is awesome for close to authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Great place to grab a great meal during your lunch hour. Excellent and tasty dishes, lots of options for carnivores and vegetarians...in and out in a hour or so. Noice level is reasonable which allows you time to have a working lunch meeting.

I joined a friend for lunch here recently and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and service. I had not eaten here for many years, as my memory was of a very average and overpriced menu. Fortunately, the meals we had were very good and high quality. My friend had the daily Pho special and I had a combination grilled... More

If you are looking for precooked overpriced food...this is your place. We knew we were in trouble when the restaurant was mostly empty for dinner, entrees came out 3 minutes after we ordered them, and when we asked if everything was cooked to order as the entrees came out the waiter said yes. As an example of how bad it... More

Took my teenage kids to experience this restaurant. They ordered the pho one seafood the other chicken, I ordered the lettuce chicken wrap grounded. Not much chicken in my dish, phos were good I was told. A bit expensive for vietnamese phos in my opinion.
