We each look forward to welcoming you to Oriole.
What Insiders Are Saying
Oriole is a fancy and expensive tasting menu restaurant that’s great for a special occasion.
Oriole has become “destination dining” for my wife and me. We returned, for our wedding anniversary, to Chicago specifically to dine at Oriole. We were not let down. The food is amazing and is paired incredibly well, even with the more modestly priced “standard pairing”. Our service was similarly outstanding, which is what one would expect at this price point, however the individual care leaves a lasting impression.
The best restaurant in Chicago!!!
This place speaks for itself. Suffice it to say, best meal I’ve had all year.
Fabulous food. Desserts were not my favorites. The concept of wanting you to want a little more of each bite was true up until the dessert courses. Highly recommend the experience.
Oriole was a wonderful experience. We received the best and most personal service I have ever experienced at a restaurant. The food, drink, and ambiance were delectable. Expensive...and worth it!
Tops! None better in Chicago.
Amazing Experience , a Place to enjoy food
and All that a great Chef could offer to u
Impeccable service, impeccable food, impeccable evening at Oriole.
Knocked my socks off this experience just as well as they did the last time. Accommodated all my food allergies and preferences. Much appreciated! Only thing I would recommend different is asking on the front end and/or save space at Kumiko, should you want an after diner drink.
Oriole brought the two of us 'Ratatouille' moments- the taste, smell and mixtures of flavorings, spices, sauces and artisan cooking really and truly transported both of us like Anton Ego, to places we'd experienced fondly as kids! We've eaten at some of the finest restaurants on four continents and this is the place to experience an art form that will linger years after the fine food at the table has disappeared! Thank you. We shall return meal passports in hand!!
This was one of the best meals we have ever had. Rarely, even at the very best restaurants, does every single dish deliver on its promise: at Oriole, every dish was transcendent.
Best meal period !
Spectacular service and outstanding food. We have been to many amazing and highly rated restaurants around the world and Oriole is definitely among the top. The space is interesting and intimate. The servers are professional, knowledgeable and take incredible notice to details.
Oriole was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had! And the staff was so wonderful, they even all had a card signed by everyone and personalized menus prepared for us for our anniversary. Can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic evening top to bottom. Interesting and delicious food. Well selected drink pairings - both wine and non-alcoholic. Beautiful space to have this dinner in as well.
I will dedicate a post in my blog, dndcomer (blogspot) to explain how wonderfull it was.
Very good food progression, we did the standard wine pairing and all wines were well matched to the food. My wife has a visceral dislike of Riesling for some reason, and (with the exception of Port) does not care for dessert wines either. She also does not like sake, which was featured in our pairing. Oriole had no problem substituting those three wines with others, which she very much enjoyed. Two other Michelin-starred restaurants we recently visited gave us some grief over these types of substitutions, even when I "warned" them of this when making the reservation. So very pleased they rolled with those punches. If you go, say hi to Bun...
Amazing food and spectacular service! Highly recommended.
Amazing dinner!! Go here now!! Loved it
This is my second time eating at Oriole - each time has been a unique and pleasurable experience. Before my first time at the restaurant I’d had good food before, but this was truly a life changing experience.
Spectacular tasting menu and the service was really fine without hovering, but still always available and helpful. They noticed I was left handed and switched to placing drinks and tableware on the left. Wine steward knew his stuff and explained without going overboard. The king crab dumpling and Japanese milk bread with king crab dip was ti die for and the real Japanese Kobe Wagyu beef steak was melt in your mouth delicious. Nearly impossible to rank which were our favorites because they were all fabulous.
Everything about Oriole is stunning. This is a restaurant for Foodies without the gimmicks and pretenses. One of the best meals I’ve had; the caviar and scallop dish is now my “last supper” choice!
Took my girlfriend there for her birthday both this year and last. She says it was the two best meals she’s ever had.
Chef made accommodations for dietary restrictions and the result was amazing and delicious.
Delicious food with many new items to try, wonderful alcohol pairing menu, could use a little more on the non alcohol pairing side. Wonderful and friendly wait staff. Certainly will be back.
This was the 2nd time we dined at Oriole and it has quickly become our favorite 5-Star Restaurant in Chicago. The staff is attentive without hovering, the ambiance is peaceful and the food is sublime. This is a restaurant that is all about the food (bringing it to a different level and pairing great flavors) vs. the circuses (though their presentation is flawless), which is as it should be for this level of restaurant. We look forward to many dinners to come at Oriole!
Incredible food and impeccable service.
Everything it should be, service and food. Creative and delicious. Truffle pasta amazing!
I just had the pleasure of making it to Oriole for the second time. Those were the best two meals of my life. It's far from cheap, but a meal that you won't soon forget.
Unpretentious fine dining. Excellent all around
Another amazing dinner. The food keeps getting better and the service is top notch. Very adventurous food and each dish got better than the previous. The restaurant is welcoming and the service makes you feel like family. Thank you again for another special dinner...we are so excited we get to celebrate the anniversary of your open with you.
One of the best restaurants in the world.
The food and service was outstanding! We came here to celebrate a promotion and it was well worth it. I have a gluten allergy but you would never know. Would definitely come again.
If I could give 10 stars for service I would.
Truly one of the best restaurants in the city. If you enjoy Alinea or Next, put this on your list!
Hands down our favorite restaurant!!!! I miss the jamon "breadstick" however it's a necessary evolution to change menus and this one didn't disappoint at all. We don't all over the world and continuously hold every restaurant to the bar set by Oriole. Better than Alinea, etc. No gimmicky stuff..... Amazing food and overall experience every time!
Hands down the best restaurant in Chicago. While other restaurants may get more attention, Oriole is comfortable, cutting edge and beautiful with well thought out and innovative wine pairings that truly help the food shine.
Impeccable. This restaurant absolutely lives up to the hype.
This is an absolute beautiful experience in dining. From walking in the door to leaving, it’s perfection. Bravo to all the chef’s who make this possible.
