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!
This was our first time here, and we will return!
Quiet, comfortable atmosphere, and the service staff absolutely fantastic.
Food was great.
Incredible food and superb service.
Remains one of Chicago’s finest . The food and service are simply excellent. The service is attentive but not pretentious. It is pricey but worth it if you desire a dining experience rather than simply a meal.
This traditional French restaurant is a welcome relief from the abundance of trendy small plate places. Over the decades Les Nomades has maintained high standards of food and service in a quiet, sophisticated setting. Please consider giving them your business.
Food, service, and ambiance were superb. We had a very nice time. We hope to visit again in the future.
What a terrific dinner. The service was only eclipsed by the quality of the food. From the amuse bouche clear through to the souflet for dessert, it all was wonderful. Even the per course wine pairings chosen for us were excellent selections that matched up perfectly to our tastes and the food selections.
