Please keep in mind that proper attire is required including a jacket for gentlemen.
One can always count on Les Nomades to deliver a superb meal with flowers, exquisite service - all in an atmosphere where one doesn't have to hear about the diner next door's 3rd divorce from the same person!
I will say that a couple two tables away had their cell phones on the table and were texting and showing each other their phones during their entire dining experience. This should not be tolerated at such a special spot where understated elegance is so valued. Might they consider a discreet sign somewhere that forbids cell phones any where but on the sidewalk outside? It was very distracting to say the least.
A gem of Chicago!!!
Amazing customization of food to our preferences and dietary restrictions
Our third time here, was good but not the charm. The ambiance was lovely. The waitstaff was attentive. The wine was delicious. However, the food did not rise to the level of our first two visits. Moreover, there was an inexplicably long delay between a couple of the courses. We would go back, however, we will not be rushing back.
Fabulous Traditional French. Every dish/course was excellent including the two amuse-bouches. The soufflé for dessert was perfection. Very few can make a good soufflé. Service was excellent; well done, well timed, friendly and non-intrusive. The townhouse setting is charming but upstairs is much nicer for dinning, in my opinion and experience.
The food, wine & service were excellent.
Stepping into Les Nomades is like stepping off of a plane and being in Paris. It’s an intimate little jewel of a place, super elegant and the food is classic with a twist, but ever so divine. We’ve been celebrating special occasions there for many years. Love that it’s a quiet atmosphere with no cell phone conversations permitted. One of Chicago’s best kept secret places. Always love being there! Exceptional service!
Amazing ! The minimum text requirement is dumb
Amazing! Highly recommend.
Very disappointed with everything about the meal. We were in town for the night. Thought I’d found someplace for a nice dinner. The food was marginal. There were no other diners in the restaurant which was really bizarre. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Our food and wine pairings were excellent. Wait staff were very knowledgeable and professional. One of the best of the best for french dining.
Les Nomades is old-school, but not old fashioned. Updated French cuisine, beautifully prepared, with impeccable service and a nice wine list. This is a restaurant for grown-ups. Expensive, but worth it.
This place is amazing 😍🥂🎉
Outstanding meal and service!!
Our new favorite spot in the city for a nice meal and special occasion dinner! A hidden gem in Streeterville. Every course was wonderful but the soufflé is not to be missed! We are already looking forward to going back
Amazing food! Wonderful, calm, beautiful ambiance, and excellent service.
Truly amazing across the board!!
Was seated downstairs in the back, which was ok but, was next to a table where three individuals were very loud - spoiled what was suppose to be a special dinner. Disappointed that the waiter or someone on staff did not ask that they lower their voice. Should not be my job to tell another table that they are to loud.
Amazing food and beautiful space, excellent service!
An absolutely wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting superb food and ambiance.
Absolutely delicious dinner with lovely service. It’s a bit of Paris in Chicago.
This restaurant is a throwback to fine-dining that is hard to find today. Food and service were impeccable.
Food was amazing (mushroom soup, fois gras, souffle, and loup de mer are all some our favorites). Service makes you feel like you're the only one in the room. Carlos keeps the service light but formal and keeps us smiling. Extensive wine list and there's a real woodburning fireplace on each floor that creates a warmth and aroma like you're at home for the holidays. I would eat here once a week if I could afford it!
As always, exceptional!
Great dining experience.
Excellent, excellent, excellent! Amazing food, outstanding wine list and exceptional service. The restaurant is expensive, yes, but it’s white-glove service all the way. This is a great spot for a romantic special occasion (especially if you can request a table on the intimate second floor).
Great food and service.
Sublime! I was treating a friend who recently completed her degree in nursing and passed the exam. It was a lovely experience, with wonderful food and a perfect roaring fire on a cold evening.
Service was exquisite and the entire experience could not have been improved in any way. Despite the formal look and feel of the place, everyone was extremely friendly and I highly recommend this lovely restaurant.
Exquisite service. Thrilling options on the menu. Traditional favorites and executed flawlessly.
My wife and I loved this place. It was beyond our expectation. Thank you.
We went to Les Nomades Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary (our third visit). The restaurant is lovely and has a calming vibe, which I prefer at a fine dining establishment, despite every table being occupied. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was outstanding, and the wine list is extensive. If you have a chance, go check it out. Just be sure you have plenty of room on your card LOL!
Perfect start to finish!!!
We are regulars at Les Nomades. This visit, we were there for restaurant week. The menu was excellent and, though it was specially priced well below their standard prix fixe menu, we received the same fine service and attention to detail.
I think we have a new favorite restaurant in Chicago. Everything was perfect and I am still thinking about my meal days later.
Les Nomades is the most authentic French restaurant in Chicago. First of all, the room isn't slick corporate interior architecture by the designer of the moment. Everything from it's historic townhome building through the art on the walls is an expression of the owner's vision of the proper setting in which to enjoy the experience. The dining rooms are cozy but with ample space and distance from your fellow diners. The service is upbeat, sincere, informed, instantly available when needed without being cloyingly familiar.....simply impeccable. Les Nomades interpretation of French cuisine results in the essence of flavors without the heaviness that can sometimes be found in traditional preparations. Don't miss it!!
We had been away from Les Nomades for some time and were eager to return during Chicago Restaurant Week. Nothing has changed: the same warm greeting from Mary Beth, the same astonishing cuisine of Roland, the same impeccable, attentive yet unobtrusive service, the same knowledgeable yet un-stuffy advice, the same warmly elegant atmosphere and the perfect setting for a memorable date-night experience. Our only regret: not being able to enjoy the experience more frequently!
Superb meal. A traditional French fine dining experience. Meticulous service. The dishes are perfectly executed. The wine list is well curated. The prix fixe menu is an excellent value. Makes one realize the joy's of progressing through a five course traditional meal.
Spectacular experience. One of the last of the grand French restaurants. Extensive menu, well trained and unobtrusive servers and all around civilized dining experience.
Les Nomades is one of the best restaurants in the city for a romantic/quiet dinner. The food is awesome with a wide range of choices of outstanding quality from new inventive and tasty presentations to flawless delivery of old favorites such as desert soufflé's.
The only aspect better than the menu is the service. Attentive, informed and friendly staff enhanced the dining experience.
Exceptional service! Excellent food, well presented.
