"Very sorry to see that the restaurant is going to change, but I am certain that the new concept will be fabulous. Chef Li is changing the direction of the restaurant away from French/Vietnamese and going strictly Vietnamese. Her grilled shrimp and beef with vermicelli noodle dish is truly fantastic! A must try! Looking forward to when Chef Li reopens and trying the new food! Plan on being back as soon as she reopens!"

"Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. We had escargot and fresh rolls for appetizers. Escargot was very good. Entrees were Filet de Beouf and Duck L'Orange. Both were amazing. Duck was cooked just right. Completing the meal we had for dessert Banana Fosters and Profiteroles."

"The soup and the mussels were spectacular. The beef dish and fries were tasty, but average-fries tasted like they'd sat a couple of minutes before serving. Service all evening seemed slower than usual. Maybe a new waiter still getting the hang of things. Overall a pleasant evening, but not quit as good as this restaurant usually does it. We will be back, since this seemed like a slightly off night vs a real miss."

"We just discovered a French/Vietnamese restaurant right around the corner and we are glad we did! The food was delicious and the service was great. I had the salmon from the French side and my husband had a beef bowl from the Vietnamese side. We were both pleased. The pear pudding for dessert was wonderful."

"This was a truly delightful experience. Outside, just another restaurant in a row building. Inside is nicely appointed. Small but cozy and the waiters (2) were really hustling to serve. Overall great food experience and reasonably priced. Try it, you'll like it!"

"My husband and I and two friends had dinner there on a Sat night. The place was crowded, with patrons leaving yet soon to be filled by new comers. The staff was great, always polite and wearing a smile. Good was delicious. Perhaps the only thing that bothered us a bit was the noise level. No one was shouting but for some reason, the overall noise level made it hard to listen to people talking at the same table. In any event, we all enjoyed the evening."

"White Shallot is a tiny place in an otherwise unpromising-looking shopping center, but once you enter the service is serenely adroit, the food is divine,-- imaginative, well prepared, and quickly served. Despite the tiny space the staff accommodated our party of ten people with ease, and the menu was perfection: Asian delights for the adventurous, French classics with lots of meat for the guys, but enticing vegetarian and vegan options for those who don't eat meat. We asked to see the chef, small lady whose name I missed, who creates miracles in a miniscule kitchen. I cannot think of a better dinner I've had in this area. Every bit as good as Arcadia or Papillon, but less expensive, and with a bit more panache..."

"The menu is split in half with a French half and a Vietnamese half. We had samples from both. French food you kind of expect to be good if done at all well, and the dishes we tried were very well executed. But the Vietnamese dishes we tried were what was special about White Shallot, as these were remarkable (when compared to usual Vietnamese fare). The ambiance was OK but not high end. I was impressed that there were multiple children present (OK for us). Our waiter was on the inexperienced side, very attentive in the early stages when the restaurant was less crowded, less so as the place filled up. There was a mix up in the desert course which was irritating but was rectified."

"This place is no-nonsense delicious; it hasn't been renovated like some super-trendy fusion place in the Mission but seriously everything I've tried here has been simply fantastic. I can't recommend it enough. One of the better (if not _the_ stealthiest) restaurants in the South Bay. It doesn't try too hard either: it's just straightforward and tasty food."

"Terrible place. The food is below average, service is terribly slow. The place is also small, if you are tall you may not have enough space to sit comfortably at the table either."

"White Shallot is always wonderful. The food here is fresh and flavorful. This restaurant is a hidden gem and one that we always recommend to our friends. Chef Li is very talented and we try to patronize this restaurant as often as possible. Try the incredible ice creams!"

"From the reviews we knew not to expect a fancy place. The restaurant is in a very uninspiring strip mall. But it's perfectly fine as long as you're not expecting romantic ambience. We sat in a booth and it felt quite private. The food was excellent. I had the vegan spring rolls and the vegan lemongrass tofu. They had multiple vegetarian and vegan options, although more in the Vietnamese section than the French. (OpenTable menu mentioned gratin but they don't have it anymore. Ratatouille instead) The lemongrass had a lovely and spicy flavor. My husband had Vietnamese soup and bouillabase. The soup was fine but he absolutely loved the bouillabase. We got the profitoroles for dessert. They were tasty. Will definitely be going back and am looking forward to trying more dishes. Probably better than half the restaurants in Santana Row and quite reasonable prices."
