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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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.
