What Insiders Are Saying
Oriole is a fancy and expensive tasting menu restaurant that’s great for a special occasion.
Simply superb food, service, presentation, and ambiance.
Had a great second time here for my wife’s birthday ! Will certainly return.
We absolute enjoyed Oriole. Service was impeccable. The food was very good, and so were the pairings. We were able to nab a 7:30pm table for a Saturday night, 48 hrs before. It was simply meant to be! Highly recommend! Book it. You won’t regret it!
This was my 12th time here, and I simply don’t understand how Oriole keeps getting better. Just when you think the experience can’t be topped, they somehow do it yet again. Thank you again Noah, Cara, and the rest of your wonderful staff for a beautiful and delicious evening.
Simply amazing. This was our second visit and we were celebrating my birthday. My husband said he thinks it’s the best meal he’s ever experienced at a restaurant. Food was divine, service impeccable but friendly, perfect ambience with plenty of room between diners for privacy. Overall, wonderful birthday celebration....thank you! We love this restaurant and can’t wait to return!
Loved the ambiance and the service was superb! The food was delicious and beautiful. Also we’ve done a handful of wine pairings in the last few years and this was by far the best wine pairing we’ve experienced. Worked perfectly with every single plate and even enhanced some of the courses. Highly recommend this place!
Everything was above expectations. Food, service and the humble Chef Noah.
Absolutely the best food & reserve wine pairings to be found in Chicago today.
One of the best restaurants in Chicago, if not the best.
This is quiet beautifully done space that comforts the customer with amazing cuisine, knowlegeable staff
and tastes you won't be able to forgetor find anywhere else.
Absolutely superb and the pairings were the best food matches I have experienced. A very special treat and will be back
Hands down one of the greatest dining experiences I've ever had, and top 3 fine dining restaurants in Chicago. The staff's attention to detail is immaculate. The wine pairing is spectacular. Can't go wrong here.
Excellent dining experience. True gastronomy!
Stunning heavily Japanese influenced tasting menu, the staff are incredible - they work as such a cohesive unit, like they’re all extensions of the same limbs! They were so attentive but not over the top, knowledgable and affable. Overall such a treat and I would happily go back / recommend to all.
Oriole never disappoints!
This was my first time doing a tasting menu. It completely exceeded all of my expectations. I liked the ambience in a old commercial structure turned into a modern space, staff was superb, friendly, approachable, and the food was an experience. Worth its money. More seafood and Asian flavors then I expected, several classics with new twists including Foie gras, Truffle over pasta, Sushi, most tender beef, etc I shared wine paring with my husband, however for me the amount of wine was a bit too much.
It was amazing! Make your reservation today! I can't wait to go back!
Food was amazing. Time to wait between plates and wine pairings was a little too long
This was by far the most unique and delightful meal I've had in a long time. From presentation to taste, every dish was artfully created and wonderful. Service was impeccable from start to finish—We were greeted at the host station with a welcome cocktail, and each server was very knowledgable on the dishes and helped created a very pleasant atmosphere. Some highlights were the chef's unique twists on caviar, foie gras, and sea urchin. Absolutely worth the price tag and several month wait for a reservation.
This is a wonderful dining experience. Flavor profiles were well thought out and creative. Highly recommend the full wine pairing as it adds to the dining pleasure.
Excellent service, chic atmosphere, and amazing food. Expensive and well-worth it.
Unique environment and style. The service and foods are decent. However, the insufficient amount even compared with other 2 or 3 star restaurants. Yet the price $260 for 5 appetizers, 3 main courses, and 3 desserts is reasonable.
We were blown away from the moment we walked in. Complete hospitality in every way! We were greeted by the hostess and given a housemate cocktail, and she was so fun and friendly. The perfect start to an amazing evening. Our sommelier and server were wonderful. Always smiling, offered great conversation, they were so much fun, full of knowledge and went above and beyond for us! We shared with them that we will be moving next summer and we are making our way through all the Michelin restaurants (this one was by FAR our favorite!!) and one of the chefs and another server, who are from the area we are moving to, write down a list of restaurants for us to check out despite being busy with other customers. It was an outstanding experience, we already made a reservation for our anniversary. Worth every single penny!!
Best meal I had in Chicago. Service and food matched the 2 Michelin stars.
Every course was superb and the service was flawless. Expensive but worth every penny!
Exceeded all expectations. Perfection in every dish and detail. Best meal of our year and such a great birthday experience!
It’s the best
This was a magical evening and the food is spectacular. With the food we had the standard pairing, this was at a premium however the pairings were delicious and completely matched every course, even those that were less expected. The food is a wonderful journey and I think both of us came away with a dish we would never forget.
Outstanding food and presentation. Great service, well paced meals. The reserve wine paring was tremendous. Been to a lot of Michelin 2 and 3 star restaurants.
What made this special is the atmosphere was vibey vs a bit structured.
Well done and highly recommend to anyone looking for superb quality.
One of the best experiences I’ve ever had!
Incredible from start to finish. The hosts and servers do an amazing job making you feel welcome and sweeping aside the pretension. The are more than happy to discuss the dish or just leave you alone. Every course was a delight for the senses. My wife does not drink alcohol and had the spirit free pairing. It was incredibly well thought out and really complemented each course. The thoughtful and delicious menu and attentive staff are worth the cost - at least once.
Perfectly prepared, presented and served meal of intensely flavorful food; a delight for all the senses. Wonderful accompanying beverage course. A meal that will not be forgotten.
Best meal I’ve ever had, matched only by the sensational service, which was perfection without crossing over into pretentious. A creative, mind blowing experience from arrival to departure. Unexpected, exciting and delicious - this place is the complete package, and the attention to detail is astounding. This is an absolute MUST for foodies in search of the real deal.
Undoubtably worth the Michelin stars that it has. Outstanding creative tasting menu. Pricey, but what you get is exquisite. Quirky space in an old warehouse in a very out-of-the-way location. But the interior is cool. Staff is very approachable and helpful. No pretense at all. Excellent wine list with some high end choices, but also some very affordable bottles. We absolutely loved it
I can't imagine a dining experience could be any better. From the flavors and the texture of the multiple courses, to the perfect drink pairings and the quietly elegant atmosphere, it all made for a gastronomic evening to be remembered. A bonus was their pre-dining care to assure diet restrictions are accommodated. Superlative!
Literally the best meal of my life, every course better than the last, which is saying a lot.
This is a unique setting with food to match! By course 6 I was begging our server to stop bringing these delicious dishes. The explosion of flavors and textures were remarkable - truly a delightful experience.
