The food and service were extraordinary! Every course was delicious. Service was superb.
Food and service were amazing. A very special place!
Food was outstanding and excellent service right from start to end of the dining experience
This is an elegant and superb French restaurant of which there are very few in Chicago. The price reflects this but everything is well worth it. An intimate setting helps make it a very special event destination. While we celebrate special occasions, this time we simply celebrated "it's Friday".
Les Nomades is fine dining at it's best. Period! It's a culinary journey for the most discriminating palate.
As always, the ambiance, service and food were perfect. A quiet, pleasant evening and I look forward to returning.
Excellent food, exquisite deserts, outstanding service. You will not be disappointed!
Is Les Nomades the finest restaurant in the US not to have a Michelin star ? This is the question I was asking myself when dining there last Saturday evening. Everything was flawless - from the friendly greeting, to the expert advice on menu and wine list, to the dinner service itself - tables spaced sufficiently apart, ambience of the room, food quality & presentation, and so on. One touch which I have never seen before anywhere - we ordered a half bottle of white and a half bottle of red. The red came in a mini decanter designed for a half bottle, and the white had its own mini ice bucket - such a thoughtful touch.
This is a jewel of a place and we will return soon. Bravo to the owners and staff for such a magnificent performance.
Great food, great wine and great service! What else can be said?
Wonderful food and service. Great for a special occasion.
Les Nomades is definitely a special occasion restaurant, and we went for my birthday. The service is always excellent, as is the food. I had their meat special, venison, and it was fabulous. Really my only criticism is that the tables are quite close together and even though people don't talk loudly, it's fairly easy to hear other conversations. Otherwise it's great for a lovely evening out.
Great ambiance, service and food.
What a great bday dinner. Good food, good company and good service! Enjoyed not being rushed and savoring my dinner and family. Thank you, and worth every penny
Always a wonderful experience.
We had an amazing dinner last Wednesday. Everything was perfect, The ambience, the chef’s skills of the taste and presentation of each course.
Definitely Michelin star!!!
Of the 150 restaurants in Chicago I have visited over the years, Les Nomades is probably my favorite. The cuisine, wines, ambiance, clientele and service are all excellent. Reminds one of French dining, the old fashioned way. I will be back.
It’s always a treat to dine here. The food presentation is lovely and just adds to the dining experience. We drive approximately 1.75 hours but it’s a special occasion to celebrate my husband’s birthday and worth the time! Will definitely be back for another memorable evening as soon as possible!
Great food and service. Pleasant atmosphere and quiet. Quite pricy.
Our favorite French restaurant in Chicago. A quiet atmosphere, impeccable service and classic French food. The 4 course prix fixe menu is a great bargain. We were there for my 66th birthday. The service was well paced. We could see the fireplace from our table. Started with oysters. Outstanding. The venison special was absolutely perfect. Flourless chocolate cake was fantastic. Coffee souffle' was very good. We try to dine at Les Nomades every time we are in Chicago.
There is nothing like Les Nomades in Chicago! Always a delight!
Los Nomades is a true dining experience. Your are treated as though you are the only guests,
Except coffee not hot enough
Les Nomades never fails. The food is perfectly prepared. The variety of the menu means there is something for everyone. Service is excellent. One of our favorite places to eat in Chicago.
We went to Les Nomades for the first time to celebrate a very special birthday for my husband. We heard it was an excellent restaurant and we love French food. We did not expect the level of food, service and quality we received. They made us feel like royalty!! Every course was delicious beyond our expectations. The wine list was expansive and offered 1/2 bottles of wine. We left feeling spoiled. The next day, we kept talking about our great experience at Les Nomades!
I'm from the era when classic French restaurants dominated the Chicago dining scene. I so fondly remember Jovan, Le Perroquet, L'Escargot, and Le Frances in Wheeling. These and many others are all gone now. Thankfully Les Nomades is not. Going to Les Nomades is a delightful trip into a time machine. It maintains the elegance, style, and fine dining experience of days gone by. It also remains the only classic French restaurant of its kind in the city anymore. I'll probably post a much more detailed of a description of our experience in a blog, but suffice it to say if you want a very special evening out that few, if any, current Chicago restaurants can provide, this is where you want to go.
Best French restaurant in Chicago. Deserves a Michelin star.
Classic French food at its best. Every detail is perfect. Service is impeccable We look forward to next time!!
Always reliable and beyond excellent. Exceptional service
Elegant surroundings, impeccable yet friendly service, exquisite food and wine. We are already planning our next visit! The four course menu is satisfying but not too much. We loved it.
Great meal great service excellent
For the first time ever, after going to Les Nomades about once per year over the last 6-8 years, I cannot give the restaurant 5 stars across the board. While Les Nomades has always been expensive, the quality of the food, service and atmosphere has been so exceptional that it was worth every penny. This time, however, while the service was again exceptional, including every one of the 4 or 5 individuals with whom I interacted. And the atmosphere is wonderful, particularly around the holidays. But the food this time was not as outstanding as it has always been in my experience. The cheese and dessert plates were exceptionally scrumptious, and the fois gras appetizer was perfectly divine. But every other plate (5 other plates between the two of us in a 4-course meal) ranged from mediocre to just good, and that fact made me cringe just a little at the final bill. I will still recommend Les Nomades and I'm sure I'll be back, but I do hope that our disappointment with the food quality was a one-off fluke, and if not, that the kitchen steps it up a bit.
Amazing French restaurant. The food is outstanding and the service is impeccable. So many wonderful choices, including soufflés that are just perfection. We highly recommend Les Nomades.
Easily one of the finest dining experiences for me. Great ambiance, great staff and great food.
Great ambiance, food and service ... enjoyed the experience. Bring your Brinks truck.
