    Food was good. A few dishes were rather tasty. Service was excellent. Overall, it was a good experience. Definitely not worth the money that they charge for it. 4/5 stars is what I would give this place.

    This was my second opportunity to dine at Les Nomades (I live on the other side of the country but visit Chicago at least once a year) and it lived up to everything I loved about it the first time around. Everything about this elegant but intimate spot serving classically prepared French cuisine is executed at the highest standard. Impeccable service, an impressive wine list and absolutely outstanding food. Don't be deterred by the prix fixe approach - the offerings within each course are varied enough to please everyone, the portions are perfectly sized (you won't finish feeling stuffed) and it's all served at an unhurried pace that allows one to savor the meal, the evening and the company equally. I gave 4 stars on "value" not because the experience isn't worth every penny, but because it seems out of step to describe the attendant cost - which is admittedly high - as being "outstanding". Extraordinary might be a better term as, in the most literal sense, the cost is "outside the ordinary" to be sure. But then again, so is everything about Les Nomades; it is a special place not easily forgotten once enjoyed and I will return again and again.

    Our dinner at Les Nomades was perfect. Exquisite food and wine, great and friendly service, a lovely venue - all round a really great experience. The fois gras and caviar, salmon appetizers were off the charts great! The duck was top notch and the grand mariner soufflé was the best I’ve ever had. Last night was the first service following Chef Roland’s retirement. Sous Chef Jeff Brocar’s service was world class! Thank you!

    Hardly you will find a quality of cuisine better than this in Chicago. The service is one of the best ever. We love the place.

    The cuisine was outstanding as usual. Sadly, the wine service was “off” a bit the night we visited. In fact, we ended up pouring our own wine most of the evening.
