One of Chicago’s finest dining experiences awaits you in this elegant town home setting that balances formality and friendliness. Your dinner may be paired with fine wines, as uncommon ingredients come together in perfect harmony. In operation since 1978, Les Nomades remains true to its distinctive character as an oasis of civilized tranquility amidst the bustling activity of its Streeterville location. Culinary creations delight the most discriminating palates. Savor Sautéed Foie Gras, or Lobster Ravioli with seared scallops; Roasted Breast and Confit Leg of Duck, or Duo of Roasted Partridge and Bison. Artisan cheeses are extraordinary and the pastries are sublime.

I took my two daughters to Les Nomades for their birthdays. It’s my favorite French restaurant and I take every occasion as an excuse to dine there. Mary Beth introduced herself to us and we had a lovely conversation. The service and food are the best in the city and northern suburbs. Thank goodness Les Nomade weathered the pandemic. I don’t know what I’d do without it.

My husband and I had the Dover sole and it was rubbery. Appetizers were good, the lobster salad was terrific and the desserts were fine, but we were very dissatisfied with the entree. We will not be going back.

Wonderful service. Could not have been better. Food amazing. BUT the place needs a refresh. Does not look or feel French. Feels like you're at your grandma's house. Didn't have any vibe to it. Worth a visit as a splurge for a special occasion

Service was outstanding and wine list was excellent….that’s where it ends. Food was extremely disappointing - oysters warm, Dover.Sole rubbery and inedible. Avoid this place

beautiful room with great food. Service was a delight. Not too much hovering, but always attentive. food was delicious and creative but not different for the sake of being different or having shock value.
The price is very fair.
A true delight

Les Nomades is an absolute jewel! We had such a wonderful time experiencing the fabulous French cuisine and the stellar continental service. Fine dining as it should be experienced! Josie's flawless table service and Jose's remarkable Sommalier service made for a truly memorable evening...all experienced in a wonderful old Chicago brownstone decorated meticulously. The gracious owner, Mary Beth, is on hand to greet and support the oafs that show up without a jacket. Don't forget your jacket! Truly a go-to destination for foodies in the Mag Mile area.

Les Nomades never disappoints. Every dish was so wonderfully good that it’s hard to pick a favorite. The soufflés alone are a reason to go there. Service was superb. MBL is a great hostess.

Exquisite French cuisine! My fiancé proposed at this restaurant a year and a half ago, and we came here for a special occasion. The food is of excellent quality and made with wonderful ingredients. But what's really amazing about Les Nomades is the service. The service is the best in the city - you feel very taken care of without feeling talked down or or made to feel small (relevant as a relatively young, petite female). Can't say enough about how incredible the experience is.

Waiter was attentive, well-informed, helpful and friendly, an excellent waiter . Support staff was extremely efficient.

Food was superb and presentation was stunning.

A bit pricy but not above expectations for such a superb restaurant.

A wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary.

Wine list was excellent, hard to choose from so many great choices.
