We have eaten twice in this 12th floor restaurant located in the Old Quarter. Staff is friendly, service is efficient, presentation of the food is creative and the quality is good. My only disappointment was with the rabbit stew which was long in potatoes and short in rabbit meat...although it tasted excellent.

Can't praise this restaurant enough. The food was fresh and delicious, service attentive and friendly and the views are stunning over Hanoi. There was a large selection of dishes and a good selection of gluten free options. If I am ever in Hanoi again I will be going back here. After leaving feedback after my meal I received a lovely email thanking me for my comments. Great touch to a fantastic eatery.

On the 12th floor of the Elegance Diamond Hotel it offers great city views. The staff is polite, quick, accommodating in everything from wine, happy hour, food to room temperature. It is a very comfortable and slightly elegant spot. 

I had the beef pho and my husband had chicken with lemongrass and chili. Both were really good. The night view is a chance to see the city from above. 

Take the time.

This restaurant was upscale but very reasonably priced. Staff was helpful with gluten free menu navigation. Buy one get one free happy hour drinks!! 

This was a great place to go to escape the hustle and bustle and noise of the night market. Great view of the city and the bridge.

Went to the Gourmet Corner Restaurant after reading all the positive reviews about it. It really lived up to the expectations. The restaurant itself is situated on the top floor of a hotel overlooking Hanoi. You really get to see a lot of the city at night. The food and cocktails are great. It's a particularly good choice if you're a vegetarian- I had the avocado crepes which were delicious. Don't go without trying the desserts! The staff were also the best I've seen in a long time - really friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend.

Reviews said to go here so we did. Right across the street from our hotel, actually walked past it several times before asking OUR hotel where it was. Very small sign and restaurant is in a hotel. Anyway, great food, special service, great view beautiful restaurant. Highly recommend.

This restaurant is on the 12th floor offering an amazing view over old Hanoi. Received a warm welcome and excellent friendly service. Thoughtful menu offering Western and Vietnamese cuisine. Marvellous moorish mains. Delicious desserts. Recommend for higher end dining in Hanoi.

We really got surprised at the first time here. Although the restaurant is small, it's located on the rooftop floor of the hotel but what if offers to your meal is quite the best!
Cozy and lovely as the feature I've known.of the Elegance hotel group.
We enjoyed sitting both inside and outside on the balcony to get the view of Hoan Kiem Lake.
Foods were so great and fresh with the best service!
It's one of our first choices for dinner together in Hanoi now and then...:-)

It is soooo nice to get to a place here in SEA where you can get across so well!
I first sat at the bar, lovely gin and tonic, the barman speaks FLUENT. English, and offers extraordinary service! A mile extra.
I then went to their restaurant which is located on the 12th floor!!!! Fantastic! Great view, and again the staff spoke perfect English!!

I ordered shrimp with sweet, spicey and sour sauce! I loved it.

I would love to go back!

We ate here a couple of evenings ago. It wasn't just the best meal we have had in Vietnam but the best meal of our trip and we have been travelling since September.
The food is beautifully presented and delicious. They will ask you how spicy you want it. We described how hot we wanted it and they got it just right. It's absolutely not bland. 
Service is exemplary. Views are great too. What's really impressive is how determined they are to learn from customer feedback and get things right. 
It's not expensive either. We had fresh spring rolls and then two main meals and two beers and the bill was less than £24. For the quality, that's incredible value. Next time we visit, we'll be back.
