The best meal I've had in Chicago. Every course was delicious and the pairings were perfect. The service was thoughtful and relaxed. Even the bathrooms were refreshed after every use. The atmosphere is understated and beautiful. I hope to go again for the new Spring menu!
Unbelievable experience. Every dish was simply amazing. Its very expensive but definitely worth it!
Unbelievable, superb execution of eco ic ingredients,!flawless services perfect dining experience
One of the finest meals I have ever had. Everything was perfect. Stunning restaurant.
Our experience with the food pairing and wine was amazing and the service was exceptional
Among my favorite restaurants in Chicago. This is the benchmark for every Michelin star rated restaurant that I visit.
i went to celebrate my my sons birthday since he wanted to eat there .probably he heard a lot of hype about this place .When you spent close to 1400 dollars for 4 people in an old building with a dilapidated old elevator as an entrance , naturally i expected a birthday candle with a wish for my son with a small cake at least . I have tasted better food than this food before . some of the waiters were great I ate at EL ideas last month and their food was phenomenal and service was great . I would definitely think twice before booking places like this
Phenomenal experience! Every dish was awesome and desserts were amazing
Amazing attentive service. Staff extremely well trained and educated. Every detail was spot on! Even down to writing a happy Birthday salutation to me on our menu.
Best meal I’ve had in Chicago! ...probably best meal and dinning experience I’ve ever had, come to think of it. I will definitely be back. All staff was genuine, humble, and welcoming. The Chef presences was outstanding! Four of our courses were introduced by either Chef Noah, Genie and the Sous Chef - very nice touch!
Amazing food and service. Worth every penny. We had a lovely anniversary dinner and each person made us feel very special.
Food was excellent! However, since I am a food blogger, I love to take photos of food, but the light was very dim and when I decided to use flash to take photos I was told not to. But other than that, the service, food, and ambiance was great! By far, favorite meal in Chicago
Absolutely phenomenal experience. From the moment we entered, we were greeted with impeccable service coupled with an unmatched combination of culinary feats and well paired drinks. Oriole is a must for special occasions; we expected great food and service and not only were our expectations met and exceeded, but we were also blown away by the top notch attention to detail during each aspect of the evening. Bravo Oriole, bravo. Truly deserving of all accolades.
OMG phenomenal experience all around...food, beverage pairings, service, ambience. Absolutely loved our dinner and can’t wait to return!
Fabulous dining experience and excellent service.
Excellent service, great tasting food, can see the kitchen from every seat.
A wonderful 14 course tasting menu with perfectly paired wines and cocktails.
The ambience was ideal for the experience - quiet, warm and inviting.
The service was exceptional and kind.
Each course was unique with flavor and texture that made you savor each bite.
The wines and cocktails accentuated the taste of each course in a way that seemed amazing.
Very unique presentations for each course added to the visual appeal.
Highly recommended, but be prepared for the cost - $$
We will very much look forward to dining here again.
An amazing experience. Outstanding service. Was not sure what to expect but I truly enjoyed my dinner at Oriole. Food was great. I'm not a fan of two hour dinners but Oriole pulled it off. It was slightly difficult to find but parking was easy. I would definitely come back.
Get ready for your mind to be blown. This place is amazing. Though a pricey tasting menu with wine pairing option, it is worth the experience. We tried to compare this to when we dined at Alinea, but you can't - they offer two unique experiences and both have terrific food. I went to Oriole while pregnant and the substitutions they made for me were outstanding. I opted for the 'zero-proof' beverage pairing and it was a great call. How they made teas taste so good is beyond me. The best part of the meal was probably the dessert courses. Genie is the bomb. Hope you enjoy it as much as my husband and I did!
Amazing meal. One of the best we have had in the past few years.
Amazing evening. Great food, service and wine pairings. So happy to have had the opportunity to visit. Worth any wait to get a reservation! Solid A meal and highly recommended!
Everything was outstanding. The service, the menu, the presentation, all were exceptional down the last detail.
Oriole was phenomenal. The food was one delicious bite after another, with everything perfect. A truly amazing experience. I will be back.
Amazing. Certainly the best meal I’ve had recently and one of the best I’ve ever had
Incredible service, presentation, and quality. Best meal so far.
Enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner at this classy, casual restaurant. They adjusted the tasting menu to avoid foie gras, which neither of us enjoy and all the courses served were excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. One of the best restaurants we've visited among many in Chicago.
Amazing. - can't say enough positive things. There are many fine dining restaurants in Chicago, but this ranks up there as one of the best.
The food got better and better with each course. Service was excellent. It was professional, but also personable.
There was a cool vibe in the restaurant. It lacked the pretentiousness of all of the other restaurants of this caliber, which is a major bonus in my book.
From start to finish, every plate was well executed and meticulously prepared. The presentation was colorful and well thought out. The wine and cocktail pairings were spot on. I enjoyed every plate and pairing.
Outstanding in every way. It is fancy without being pretentious. The food is exceptional.
Oriole just keeps getting better. It may be the best restaurant in the US now- definitely 3 star Michelin- if you aren't put off by the speakeasy entrance in an alley. Loved the foie gras, all the seafood bites, the pasta, and the wagyu. The wine pairing seems to have good quality for the price, or you can just get a few glasses.
Outstanding service all around and the food was excellent
Amazing experience. Best restaurant in Chicago.
Exquisite food, presentation, and service. There is no menu but the meal is served as a series of beautifully presented plates, all thoughtfully prepared and just the right amounts. (The restaurant contacts you beforehand to inquire about dietary restrictions.) The service is friendly, professional and welcoming. The dining room is intimate, warm and just the right amount of formality without too much. It was a pleasure to speak with Chef Noah at our table. I love this hidden gem for special occasions.
This is a fantastic and special experience. food and presentaton - fabulous; staff - superb, informative and friendly/approachable; owners young and very attentive and visit each table. Small (24 seating/tables at a time ). Expensive but well worth a splurge. Best restaurant of any 2 or 3 star Michelin spots. Each course (15 course no menu or choice) a work or art and palate pleaser. Been there twice and hope to go every year at least. Ask for Alexander and Aaron (the wine one)
This was one of the best meals I have ever had. Every single dish was delicious, my husband and I were sad when it was time to go. I would highly recommend this for a special occasion or even just a date night.
Superb gourmet restaurant. Worth of its Michelin awards.
Beyond being one of the finest dining experiences in Chicago...it rivals all but the absolutely elite experiences in world cuisine. Outstanding.
Probably the finest dining experience I and my wife have ever had. For us it was a special event.
We loved the 14 course tasting menu, and the wine/cocktail pairing was fantastic! The non-alcoholic tasting looked VERY interesting, as well. It was well worth the $$. It’s perfect for a special occasion.
Five star experience , best restaurant in Chicago , staff and chef are fabulous ! You will love this dining experience .
We went to Oriole for my wife's birthday. It was the best meal I've had in Chicago in five years, and this includes meals at TRU, Alinea, Next, Spiaggia, MK, etc. This was a truly remarkable meal. Also, we had someone at the table with a dietary restriction that they gracefully accommodated in a world where many chefs will not accommodate menu modifications on chef's menus. The warm welcome cocktail on a chilly Chicago night was a treat and a great way to begin the experience. The price, though expensive, was a great value - I've paid $500 a person for dinners that were not nearly of this quality. Presentation and service was nonpareil, including inventive platings and a very nice dessert presentation; nothing felt overdone or staged. I would highly recommend Oriole to others. Worth every minute and penny.
