Although I've never had their straight-ahead Vietnamese cuisine, I have dined there 3 times (twice with my sweetie, and once with her and my two kids and their SOs) and thoroughly enjoyed it each time (as did we all!). Terrific small plates to share (kudos to their "Vietnamese tacos"), and creative, fun cocktails like saketinis, sake-based other cocktails, plus standard... More

The broad range of Scotch was a surprise (including Cragganmore, which is rarely found), the options for appetizers, main course, and even dessert were imaginative, healthy, and prepared exceptionally well. The service was also quite good, although there were a couple of times when members of our large (9-person) party had items delayed or mistakes made. They were addressed as... More

We slipped into Xanh on a Friday afternoon, during a stroll down Castro Street. "Do you have a reservation" asked the hostess. (no) "No problem" she said, and then she led us to just the right table! The buffet offers a wide variety of dishes, which are all wonderfully delicious! (the Lucky Charms jingle is rattling through my head) Naturally,... More

I've been at Xanh a few times, and keep getting disappointed with the food. (why do I come back? because someone else made the reservation ;) For example: A tuna tartar is served in a high-glass vase filled with dry-ice smoke. Looks very impressive. But every dish we ordered was either poorly done, or just badly planned. I cannot think... More

The atmosphere at Xanh is nice: a big waterfall on one side of the restaurant, stylish interior und good service. They have a really good Happy Hour from 4:30 - 6:30 very day for food and beverages under 10 $.

We often go there for the lunch buffet. Lots of options, very tasty food. Not very expensive. I like their spicy curries. The atmosphere is also very good.

Xanh has a great happy hour. With unique drinks and lite bites. We love going here. The atmosphere is great and the service is always good. I love the Lychee kiss martini and the Basil lemon drop martini.. And you have to try the Crispy potstickers! Yummy John is the best bartender! His drinks are always perfect.

Xanh is my #1 choice for intimate, casual or group dining. I've done all of the above. Food is delicious and service is excellent. Whenever someone from work needs a local rec, Xanh is my pick.

My family had dinner here on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was cool and hip - and loud - and the service was friendly. However, we chose Xanh because we really wanted good, authentic Vietnamese food. They offer more of a fusion menu, which caught us by surprise. A lot of the Vietnamese flavors and spices were missing from our... More
