The price for set lunch was reasonable given the choices of starter, main course, dessert which was great opportunity for people like us who are not sure but want to give it a try. The ambiance of the restaurant was classy, quiet and furnished with antique furniture. Since we have 4 people, we decided to order everything on the menu... More

Great for a night cap. A nice selection of cocktails, wines and Champagnes. Outdoor patio, DJ music inside. It was a very enjoyable evening. Fairly priced.

A great spot for a drink and a snack: we arrived late on the afternoon for a business talk and it lasted until the crowd started gathering for a refined drink as the sun set on the terrace higher floor. Very pleasant with good service and nice drinks.

Had lunch with a group of seventeen; the Press Club staff handled our group with ease, wonderful food, and great service. Totally recommend. The Pho as a starter is highly recommended. The entrees were just the correct size and not jumbo - a welcome relief to those who feel that Americans must be fed in great quantities. Highly recommend for... More

Rebuilt in 1997 with further redevelopment in 2015 the Press Club is famous as the base for many Vietnamese journalists and foreign correspondents during the ‘anti American war’ (as the Vietnamese call it). Impeccable service in fabulous rooms. Expect western prices. Superb for evening cocktails and bragging rights.

perfectly appointed, quiet, great views and great staff. Loved the Pho drink by Pihn. great escape when you need to think or need to chat with someone. setting is gorgeous and the A/C is bumpin'. Prices are just right. Don't listen to americans saying things like, "too expensive" or "nothing special at those prices", they are idiots. the prices are... More

Very special for light lunch, food so good. Wine was perfect.Camomile tea pot enough for 3,4 people after the lunch. The staff was friendly and care for detail of service. It's very nice view to see outside from our table! Everything's fantasy.

We were staying in the hotel across the road and came to Press Club for a cocktail. They were excellent, the mixologists prepared the cocktails in front of us and were really friendly. This is a really cool place to hang out for a drink or two in the evening. We didn't stay for dinner but we given some small... More

Visited in a group of 8 and from the moment we steped in, everything was miraculous. From the interior finishing( Hermes wall paper and fresh flowers daily) to the food, true top class. Definitely must check out the Pho coctail - signature coctail here taste like you are drinking the real Pho broth but cold. Obviously high end food comes... More

Description
A favourite with discerning visitors, residents and food critics alike, The Restaurant is one of Hanoi’s premier fine dining experiences. Located on the third floor, The Restaurant’s understated colonial ambience of sleek wood floors and furniture, crisp white linen and warm red and green hues, combined with impeccable service, permeates both discreetness and refinement. With a classically trained, European Executive Chef at the helm of an award-winning team of chefs, cuisine is classical French, with a contemporary twist and subtle Asian influences. Dishes are light and simple, yet with an innovative depth of flavours. Only the finest, freshest ingredients are used. Enjoy lunch and dinner from the a la carte or set lunch menus, or regular culinary promotions and special events. Two private rooms seating four or twelve are superb for intimate dining and entertaining, be it business or social occasions. The extensive choice of old and new world wines showcased in temperature-controlled glass cabinets have been endorsed by prestigious US wine magazine Wine Spectator, with an “Award of Excellence” for one of the finest wine lists in the world. The adjoining Restaurant Bar is a mellow spot to relax, whatever the occasion - especially when it’s Happy Hour. Plump sofas, rattan bar stools and low lights afford a cozy informality. Kick back and enjoy the great choice of beverages - including award-winning wines - or perhaps an after-dinner cognac or port to accompany the finest Cuban cigars, kept in mint condition in dehumidifier cabinets. The Terrace affords great views of the French Quarter beyond the potted palm plants. This open-air, third floor terraced area is where anything can happen – and very often does; host to a multitude of public or private events, be it Christmas and New Year celebrations, wedding receptions and anniversaries, corporate dinners, sporting events and themed party nights. With in-house sound equipment, large stage and informal seating facilities, this is Hanoi’s happening al fresco venue, whatever the occasion, whoever the crowd!
