A rainy day and my hankering for pho landed us at the White Shallot. Their service set up is a little strange. You order at a window and it is brought to your table quite promptly, You need to self serve utensils, napkins, water and condiments of plentiful fresh herbs, bean sprouts, hot pepper discs; the regular pho fare. I... More

You can enjoy Pho with your own. There are lots of options (thickness of noodles, soup, type of soups, add-on dishes). Also, there is grill menu and you can add filet or rice and another menu for Vege. One of big advantages is that restaurant is very near to Westfield Valley Fair so, you can have it after shopping. You... More

Was here for the "re-opening" of White Shallot; I guess they changed the menu. Now its a choice of pho or grilled meats on top of rice or salad. Complicated if its your first time here where you sit down, the server has to explain how to order with a pencil and pad. For pho, you choose the type of... More

It is a charming little place in a strip mall. Definitely a surprise. Food is tasty, the night I was there, it was quiet. Given the small size of the place, i estimated about 12 tables, the quietness was a surprise. Most of the clientele carried on conversation in low voices as if not wanting to disturb the next table.... More

Shallot is located in an unassuming strip mall. The dining room is pleasant if simple with comfortable booths. The menu has 2 sections, classic French & classic Vietnamese. We ordered one entree from each section. They were both excellent. From the French, we ordered the short ribs in red wine sauce. From the Viet duck curry. We were served both... More

This is far and away my favorite place to go for French food in the south bay area. The restaurant is a combination of French and Vietnamese cuisine. I've been going to this place for years and have yet to be disappointed. The chef here really specializes in orienting her dishes on those things that she can find fresh in... More

we were intrigued by the combination of french and vietnamese, it is a nice restaurant, food is a very good average, big portions, and extremely reasonable. We had a three courses diner with house wine (quite nice), for 100$, yep, pretty unusual in this area, the service is very good, pleasant, and when we made our second reservation, they were... More

Half of the menu is French food, the other Vietnamese. We have tried about 20 things on both sides of the menu and have been pleased with everything. Ask for soy sauce for the vietnamese soups....they need a bit. Fairly new place, everything is new and clean. The staff is on the young side and one had a hard time... More
