    The food was interesting and delicious. We especially enjoyed the braised cabbage, but for the price, ($47), we felt the whole Bronzino was pretty skimpy, a smaller fish than offered elsewhere for less.

    An open, minimalist, large main dining room with tables close to one another. The server was polite, but not very efficient. Service uneven. the grilled oysters and branzino rather insipid and bland (lacked flavor). The noodles too salty. The paté and seafood salad appetizers excellent. There are many other Vietnamese restaurants that are better in our area.

    The staff at NUE were really the standouts from our experience! Super nice, welcoming, knowledgeable about the menu, and everything else you’d want. They are reason alone to revisit the place. The food was also delicious and we are really looking forward to trying the other items on the menu. The small plates are really appetizers and packed a good quantity of stellar food on the plates. Thanks so much NUE for a lovely evening!

    Great restaurant, very fine food - the charred cabbage salad, the shrimp salad, the whole fish - OMG. each one deserves a prize on its own. Bar service can be a bit of a challenge, we waited for our drinks for 15 minutes when the place was 3/4 packed, and when arrived they were tasting a bit of melted ice. when fresh this place makes amazing cocktails, so sure it was not a bad bartender, just some prompt service could do good. We def will be back.

    This is an excessively expensive restaurant. We ordered the surf and turf for $120. We ordered medium but the steak was totally raw. If they put a non Vietnamese dish on the menue, particularly at an outrageous price, the chef better know how to cook it!

    The address on open table/Instagram is incorrect. However the food was excellent. I would stay away from the pho pate which was okay and the oysters (raw and grilled) were also okay.

    Fisrt time and we had a bad experience. We had to wait 45 minutes for our food, the service was ok, the food menu is very poor, there're not a lot of choices, the appetizer we ordered was good but my food tasted very bad, they charged you a mandatory 20% tip in your bill tho. We won't go back again

    We celebrated my birthday last night at NUE. It was one of the best restaurants we have been to in years. We started out with the Chili Oil Wontons and the grilled oysters. Both were amazing! We shared the Short Rib Pappardelle which we were glad because the portion size was more than enough for two. The server was outstanding! I highly recommend you try NUE for dinner.

    Our drink order took forever to arrived - after we had already received and consumed our appetizers. Crispy flounder was pretty dry and overcooked. Overall not worth the over $300 for 4 it cost. The flavors are good, but not better than dozens of other Vietnamese restaurants in the area.

    we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Nue and will be back! we sat at the bar, grateful we could make reservations for the bar as we typically prefer sitting where we can interact with the bartender and other guests. We were there early (4:45ish) so there weren't any guests - yet - to mix with - they did start arriving as we wrapped up. we ordered four happy hour items (some of which are not on the main menu, only HH) and loved each item. I was thrilled the 'wontons' were soft, dumplings as opposed to deep fried wontons. We loved the chicken wings (only available on HH menu) - they were flavorful, crisp, hot and cooked very well. we also really enjoyed the 'play with your food' - Seafood Cha Gio - a lovely mix of seafood and spices served in an open-faced crisp that you can wrap with lettuce and add fresh herbs to (mint, cilantro and thai basil). The last item we tried was the yellowtail hamachi crudo and it was, again, delicious. Tangy, fresh, lightly crisp yet delicate with the exact right sauce and fresh pea shoots for balance. we had a Tsing Tao beer, refreshing and very crisp and cold and a Đoá Hoa Blossom - which was a fun, tangy, and acidic way to enjoy bourbon and passion fruit! we will absolutely be back.
