We absolutely loved Oriole! The food was so tasty & the staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Ask ahead a few days for the vegetarian menu, you won't be disjointed!
I dined at Oriole in 2016 - the year they opened - with a friend. We knew then that they'd receive a Michelin star. Surprise, they have 2! Anyway, I finally returned a few nights ago to celebrate getting married. I did a pescetarian menu, though I am aware that the Wagyu dish is life-altering. Everything about the journey is perfect - from when you arrive, to the recommendations, to the food itself. We thank the staff of Oriole for a memorable evening. And also a huge thank you to the wonderful table next to us, who we found had left the best gift ever, when the bill arrived! Still a top 5 dining experience.
Food was 9.5+. A bit small on portion but really exceptional
Wine paring was a 10
Service was a 10
It was our first time. Really great for a special occasion.
As good an experience as we have had in any restaurant, in any city, in any country
Great inventive menu and wonderful service. Good for small numbers and foodies. Menu and wine is expensive, but on par for their status.
Outstanding as always. Cannot wait to return and see what magic Chef Noah and Team can create.
The most unique Restaurant I have lately been!!!
Intriguing entrance, ambiance- on point, team- is TEAM :)
Menu :) OMG admired every course like exhibit in art museum at first and only then turned into Ratatouille to indulge the unique combination of flavors and imagination!
thank you for being there and don't ever loose your imagination and passion!!!
Had a fabulous experience. Loved almost everything that we ate.
Simply amazing way to celebrate a 20 year wedding anniversary. We were taken on an effortless food journey paired with amazing wines.
A truly beautiful culinary experience! The staff was passionate and knowledge, and they welcomed our questions. The food was by far the highest quality and best prepared we've ever had, and the beverage pairings were perfect. Thanks to everyone at Oriole for an unforgettable evening!
I had never experienced better service than we received at Oriole. Will definitely return. Everyone was amazing from Marylin to the entire staff. At times it almost seemed that I was watching an amazingly choreographed ballet. Extraordinary experience far beyond what was expected even for a Michelin Star restaurant
The best meal of my life! Also the best service! Highly recommended. Plus it’s byob ;)
Oriole is a very special place and a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion. The food presentation could be in the art Institute. Thank you for the great experience.
Amazing! Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. And tremendous service!! Perfect night.
Perhaps the best meal I have ever eaten
Great place for a night out with someone that is extremely special to you!!
Wonderful experience. We celebrated our anniversary with our son.
Very expensive but very delicious. A wonderful birthday night dining experience.
The most amazing and delicious dining experience. Their food is art and carefully crafted to bring flavors and textures together for the perfect bites. The service and stellar and you feel welcomed from the moment you walk into their cool, low key side alley. It almost feels like a secret club. Worth it!
The best meal in Chicago and the US! Worth every penny
It was a singular dining experience. Easily the best meal of my life. The service showed minute attention to detail. Each course was well timed and a perfect amount to enjoy. Thank you so much for a memorable evening.
The food was delicious. The customer service was outstanding. I would definitely recommended. Parking was easy to find also.
Wonderful. Everything was delicious! The only negative thing worth mentioning is that they priced the vegetarian tasting menu at the same rate as the omnivore tasting which I feel isn’t comparable cost wise. The vegetarian tasting menu should be less expensive. As an example, during one of the courses my husband had A5 wagyu steak and I had a beet...not nearly the same price, yet paid the same? Other than that, the ambiance was lovely and the staff was very friendly and attentive.
Outstanding service, delicious food, beautiful presentation. Absolutely worth the money!
Oriole is one of the top restaurants in my mind. We spended a wonderful Valentine's Day here. Excellent food and drinks. I highly recommend to have the non-alcoholic beverage pairing, which are perfectly matching with the food. I will definitely visit there again in the future.
Súper recomendable. Todo riquísimo y la atención excelente. Volveremos a nuestra siguiente visita a Chicago sin duda
Without a doubt the most expensive meal I've ever had...but the waitstaff was something to behold and the foold was sublime. Worth the splurge.
The food is really good as I expected. The dish with foie gras is fantastic and delicious. Great environment with professional and friendly service!
Very attentive service and nice ambiance. There were surprises with every course.
This was my 17th time there, so I’m running out of ways to say how fabulous Oriole is (and I like to think I have an expansive vocabulary). Incredible, as always. Cannot wait to return.
The best service I have ever had at a restaurant. It was an amazing experience.
Food is so bad as a Michelin 2 stars
Wow, wow,wow !!!! From beginning till the end everything was delicious, rick in flavor. Service wow, cocktails wow, atmosphere wow!!! Highly recommend!!! Words can not describe, you have to taste it, hear the story of each dish and feel its deep flavors of very interesting ingredients.Its 12 dishes course and Hope in future they will have options to choose menu with extra courses 14 or 16 dishes.Art of food experience was amazing , looking forward to eat there again soon!!!! Very soon!!!!!! Especially when they adding new dishes and changing menu seasonly,cant wait to try new stuff there !!!!!
Amazing food and service. Had the reserve wine pairing which was delightful.
Extraordinarily good food, genuinely nice and engaging staff, wine pairing spot on. Will return.
Impeccable and exquisite. An absolute delight. Chef Sandoval and his wife Cara have created magic. Can’t wait to visit again soon!
This was simply one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed, and I select that verb since in high end restaurants, quality doesn't always come with such enjoyment. The amount of food and wine was just right; we had eaten enough and were not drunk, even with the wine pairing (standard). It is impossible to say any dish was inferior to any other; all seemed perfect (and were presented on beautiful dishes too). The service was attentive but not intrusive. The space was elegant and comfortable and we scarcely noticed anyone else. Oriole equals Alinea in quality but is a very different experience, not theatrical, not startling, but full of pleasing surprises. I hope to find an excuse (and the means) to return – we're truly fortunate to have such a restaurant in Chicago.
Incredible food and outstanding service. Pricey but it’s worth it for a special occasion.
Excellent food and service!
