After a lot of difficulties, we found Le Cheval. Good combo,excellent soup, plentiful service.
The price are very sensible.
Busy, but so large you don't have to wait.
The kitchen closes at 9.30, early for European people.

We have been Le Cheval on numerous occasions. The food is ALWAYS OUTSTANDING and served quickly. However, what was so distinctive about this last visit is that we were allowed to stay there way beyond closing as they tended to cleaning and closing processes. We were in the midst of a wonderful night with another couple, which started at 7:30. We were talking away. Before we realized it, it was almost 11:30. Even though the restaurant closed at 9pm, they kept bringing us water and iced tea. The could have easily asked us to leave, but instead just let us finish. We were able to finish without being rushed and we got to enjoy great music that they were streaming after hours. (This is the kind of hospitality that normally you only find in other countries that understand how important friends and social gatherings are, and won't even bring the check until you ask.) It was so wonderful, we had to leave an extra $20 tip. I don't know that they normally let folks hang around so long, but in case you are running late for dinner, this may be the perfect place!

We asked a few people in a nearby hotel for dinner recommendations and they said if your looking for a flavor explosion we should go to Le Cheval. It was delicious and so flavorful! We will go back next time we are in the area.

You'll need a reservation, because this is not a secret, they've have a wonderful reputation and delicious food. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Love the coconut rice though and you must end with the banana flambé because dessert with fire = awesome!

If you are visiting Oakland, make this a stop on your dining list and make a reservation. The place is packed, especially on Friday/Saturday when they also have al live band most weekends.

This is a great Vietnamese Restaurant, with very delicious food. This picture shows deep-fried foods that are NOT the predominant items on the menu. Look for the delicate seafood dishes that have wonderful sauces and very attractive presentation. Definitely worth trying.
