Family run restaurant with outstanding food. We ate there twice. Potstickers, egg rolls, Panko breaded tofu, Asian style beef stew, pho and the coconut curry are excellent. Heard the Banh Mi is also very good. For dessert, the banana spring rolls are yummy.

Outdoor/courtyard seating only due to Covid. Order at the window once a table is ready, or take food to go. We arrived around 6:15pm and all the tables were already taken so we waited 15 minutes. It did take around 45-50 minutes to get our...food after we ordered. They appeared pretty slammed based on many to-go orders. Once the food came it was worth the wait and the staff were super friendly. My kids ate well too. Will definitely return the next time we are in town.More

Such delicious and unique flavors. Food travels well in Take Out. Such a great alternative to a chain restaurant. Nice open air seating on the patio. Good for take-out, a quick bite, or hanging out at a table to catch up with a friend.

Although the selection is smaller than some Vietnamese restaurants visited in the area, everything we ordered was very flavorful and well presented. The staff was pleasant and helpful in explaining each dish. Definitely a must go for us.

The food is delicious and the lovely garden area is perfect and quiet. Quiet is hard to come by these days in most restaurants so if you want to have a conversation over some great food, head to Alesia.

A local friend recommended this restaurant and it was EXCELLENT. At first glance, I wasn't sure how Vietnamese and French food would pair together on a menu. But it works! I had the Pho Ga, which was EXCELLENT. Others had Cream of Pea Soup, Croque...Madam, Chocolate Mousse and Chocolate Eclairs. All made on site. Have I said this food was EXCELLENT? It is. Try it. Parking is limited in their small lot, but street parking is readily available.More

We found this restaurant while visiting Treasure Island and have gone back at least twice a week for either lunch and dinner. Their pho soup is my favorite but we have also tried and loved their summer rolls, Bok choy dish and several of their...other soups and dishes. Great tasting and healthy food choices. Such a nice change from the typical bar food by the beach. We also met one of their exceptional servers, Jill, who was warm, friendly and provided us with great direction on our food choices. After speaking with her, we realized that we knew her from one of other favorite restaurants in Leland, Michigan... the Cove. What a fun surprise to see her again! I can highly recommend the dining venue, the service and the food. This is definitely one of our new favorite restaurants! Exceptional place to dine, for sure.More

It's really that good! There are some inconsistancies. The pour for the wine varies and overall is rather short. The Bahn mi sandwich was not very good. But we will return for the Duck Soup!

Lovely evening, so we opted to dine on the large, outdoor patio, which had been thoughtfully decorated with plenty of greenery, & lots of twinkle lights. We started with the pot stickers, which were incredible, & obviously must be homemade sausage. There were 5 to...an order, & they didn't last long. I had the beef stew, which was like a cross between a french stew & beef pho, in that it was swimming in broth & aromatics, with noodles, generous chunks of carrots & tender stew meat - so good. This also was served with a chunk of crusty bread. My husband enjoyed the pork bahn mi, but was still hungry, so he had the chicken pho as well, which unfortunately did not come with bread. I got a chocolate croissant to go, which was the only meh note (small, not much filling & just okay - but I learned these aren't made in house, so maybe they just need a better vendor). Dinner with tip was only $50 (Btw, Trip Advisor's menu is dated). We look forward to returning again.More

Alesia is an attractive but laid-back dining venue in far west St. Petersburg just east of the causeway to Treasure Island. The menu prices are quite reasonable when compared to "fusion" places downtown. I went with three other people. Following summer rolls that all of...us agreed were superb, two of us who had noodle soups were absolutely delighted with the fresh noodles, lightly aromatic broth that reminded me of tropical southeast Asia, and the pot stickers. My less venturesome dinner companions went for the comfort food of back ribs which they said melted in their mouths. One of my companions had French onion soup (there is a French element to the Vietnamese cuisine here) that he reported was also excellent. They have an attractive desert menu but we had no room left for that. Yes, parking is an issue. Their small parking lot was filled but I let my companions off at the front door and then parked on a residential street a block away. Friendly service and laid-back atmosphere. I think Alesia is a wonderful alternative to the tourist filled places of Treasure Island just a couple of miles to the west or the newer, noisy, more expensive fusion places in downtown St. Pete. Also has very nice outdoor space for al fresco diningMore
