Please keep in mind that proper attire is required including a jacket for gentlemen.
May be the best restaurant in Chicago for a classic, elegant, and fantastic meal. Our personal favorite special-occasion restaurant.
Fantastic food however service was a bit rushed
One of our favorite restaurant in Chicago. The people are very professional, the food is excellent. The decor it's from an another time and maybe need to be update and more suitable to the outstanding food.
This was my first time to Les Nomades and it knocked my socks off. The ambiance, the food and the service was off the charts. I’ll definitely be back.
So delicious. Best seared foie gras in the city! Came here for our wedding anniversary and the restaurant staff was understated but warm. Very classy, old-world French restaurant.
Outstanding fine dining experience. A true special occasion restaurant.
Excellent french cuisine! Always perfect! Will keep coming back !
Unsurpassed at what they do
Superb all around.
Clearly the best restaurant in Chicago. Class act with dress code.
Les Nomades is a throw back to elegant French dining. Attentive service, great food and deserts a true gem. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The service was phenomenal. Portion sizes were perfect. Not too small at all. My wife cleaned every plate she had, which is how I could tell the food was amazing. We both left stuffed and wanting to go back.
The food was Iron Chef worthy and very delicious. Service was superb. Pay attention to their dress code. Men must wear a jacket. If you forget, they will loan you one. It was very high priced. Dinner for three, with wine and tip was $650.
The perfect intersection of old and new. Simply a fantastic restaurant.
Delightful. Sautéed foi gras incredible. Service superior, including recommendation on wine not at all pushing expensive choices. Wonderful experience second anniversary celebration in a row.
My wife and I view Les Nomade as the best restaurant in Chicago. Not cheapest, but the best, and very competitively priced among the best. If you have somebody from out-of-town that you want to impress, take them to Les Nomade. Reservations for weekends are at least a month in advance.
Wonderful service without being pretentious. Food was great. My wife and I consider Les Nomades to be one of the top restaurants in Chicago.
We went there for a special night for celebration, we wanted to find a good French restaurant, and really experience the cuisine in the most authentic way you can find in nearby cities, and this was a very good choice. The food is mid-high level pricy, but you pay for the delicate dishes and the ambiance, the service, and the experience. We absolutely loved it! Will recommend highly to anybody who wants to celebrate special occasions.
Birthday. This a a very special place for the ultimate in fine dining suited well for special occasions. Very dressy attire required as the atmosphere and caliber of service and cuisine calls for it! Be ready to be impressed!
Great atmosphere, great service, and great food. Very pricey but worth it for special occasions. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Les Nomades is wonderful in all respects. Welcoming, fun and knowledgeable staff. Wood fire in the fireplace. Great food.
I hosted a dear friend to her 80th birthday. My first trip to Les Nomades was for my 50th, 16 years ago. I have had many happy returns, pun intended, to this elegant restaurant. Imagine that you have been asked to dine in an exclusive private home. That is how you will feel at Les Nomades.
Food was exquisite and service outstanding. Thank you for a great evening.
Best French restaurant in the Midwest, bar none!! Service and food are outstanding. Wine list is impressive. I book this restaurant for special occasions or for important business meetings.
Really poor experience, had such a great hype. We waited over 45 minutes for reservation (8:15) got seated just after 9p. Took another 15-20 minutes to get menus and even water for that matter. Two groups with 830 reservations got seated before us. And each group did not respect the proper dress code, they were given jackets out of a back room. It was so obvious one was a critic, and the hostess went above and beyond for this slob while disregarding their other paying guests. Playing favorites in front of your guests will not result in a return for us!
Food was good. Although the shouting of orders from the upstairs kitchen was anything but romantic. Def can cross this one of the list and would NOT recommend to others. Snobby, pretentious, and not that great!
The service was beyond the realms of this world I honestly can’t even begin to describe they really rocked my world.
We have been to many 1 and 2 Star Michelin restaurants and this surpasses a few of them! Highly recommend for a nice romantic date night. The wine list from France is top notch as well! True fine dining fresh food.
An excellent place to eat BEST French food around Fabulous presentation Excellent service Its a must!@!
Exquisite! The room was nicely filled with quiet fellow diners and every detail of the food, wine and presentation was flawless. Can’t wait to return.
This is simply the best French restaurant in United States. In a league of its own. I have been coming here for years and it is clearly a lifelong affair. Merci!
Disappointing after our previous visit. Seems like they aren’t going to be in business long. Only two other tables during the two hours we were there. The service was impeccable however. Some of the food was great and some wasn’t cooked to the level the price on the menu dictated. Very sad, I hope they can modernize their menu and get back in the game.
Meal was superior as always. I usually do not eat four course meals, but at Les Nomades it is required. It would be nice to eliminate dessert.
I enjoyed my chocolate tart praline with chocolate sorbet my husband enjoyed his raspberry souffle . It was nice to get away from the kids noise and enjoy a romantic atmosphere with fine dining good cuisine relaxing atmosphere. This is not you all you can eat buffet ,family style, this is fine dining. And I truly wish there were more restaurants like this around. If you are looking for a restaurant to sit back relax and have good French cuisine fine dining this is the place for you. I didn't need brand new whatever things are coming out with now I was looking forward to something traditional yummy authentic to be spoiled and I was. You may find older people in this restaurant but I'm young and I enjoyed it very much. Yes this restaurant is a little pricey but it was worth it . And I drink soda with my meal because I do not drink wine or any alcohol . And I was not made to feel like I needed to have wine with my meal at all. The service was great from the minute I walked in to the minute I walked out.
The food is excellent. It’s not faddish and to me that’s a plus. Offerings include sweetbreads, breast of duck and inventively prepared fish. Mind-boggling desserts. To say the wine list is deep is an understatement.
This was our first time at this restaurant. It was FABULOUS! My wife and I had a romantic dinner taking time out of our busy lives to just relax. We tried some new foods: sweet breads (delicious) homemade pate (yum). We tried some premier wines for a treat. Our waiter was kind and helpful to us in choosing our courses. We finished our meal satisfied yet not overstuffed. We loved the intimate atmosphere and the choice of music : soft guitar. It was a perfect evening! Thanks to the staff who made it a wonderful experience!
If you want classic elegant dining, Les Nomades is probably the best in Chicago ... But the best in classic elegance doesn't come cheaply.
Romantic. Delicious. Enough said
After a hiatus of too many years, we returned after asking ourselves, “What was our best Chicago food experience?” Our memory did not fail us—Les Nomades is a treasure. Impeccable service presented flawlessly prepared classic dishes with Chef’s own modern flair. Escargots, sweetbreads, veal, menu standards, were paired with unexpected sauces and accompaniments. A good selection of half bottle wines affords opportunity for fish and flesh connoisseurs to be well-satisfied.
Les Nomades was recommended to us by friends in Indianapolis, and we said we would try it the next time we were in Chicago. WOW - it exceeded our expectations. Cozy setting with a wood-burning fireplace, exceptional food (asparagus risotto, king crab salad, short rib, flourless chocolate cake), outstanding wine pairings and fabulous service. We will definitely be back!
