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.
Excellent food and service!
Phenomenal experience. Menu builds perfectly and the pairings were spot on.
Birthday celebration was just perfect in every way!
Outstanding experience. Definitely worth a visit！
An excellent experience with both food and service! A perfect evening.
Incredible dinner. How it does not have a third star is honestly astonishing. Warm, polite yet also extremely attentive to detail and indicative of an excellent fine dining experience. The food is sumptuous and truly well constructed. Highly recommend
Amazing and incredibly thoughtful. The menu for the evening we went for our anniversary was perfect.
An exceptional culinary experience; courses, wine pairings, flavors, and presentation all well thought out; one need just sit back, relax, eat and drink with pleasure. Ambiance suits the food and style--understated, quiet and relaxing. It's not "cheap" (quite the opposite--very expensive), but worth the price for the food and experience. We'd go back!
Wonderful food - cuisine with so much attention to presentation as well as inventive flavor combinations. Although there a a number of courses, none was too large. We were satisfied but not stuffed at the end of our meal. We do return about once a year for a special occasion and nor is any course disappointing
Simply an outstanding meal. The service was very attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was intimate and cozy. The food was amazing - each course was delicious and elegant. A few bites left you wanting a whole plateful... but on to the next course with something more wonderful each time! We had the "non-alcoholic" beverage pairing with the meal. Really interesting concoctions of juices, teas, ciders, etc. that complemented the food without overpowering it. Bonus that we weren't too buzzed by the end to enjoy the later courses. Worth every penny!!
Best meal of my life. Oriole deserves a 3rd star!
All aspects of this restaurant are outstanding. The food is superb and creative, the staff is super pleasant and remember your quirks and preferences. Overall among the very top in the city!!
We had the pleasure to eat at the Oriole last Saturday and it was a real joy. I had the pleasure to eat in several Michelin starred restaurants all over the world and I have to say it was one of the best culinary experience of my live. Ambiance, service, food and wine pairing was outstanding. Especially the meat for the main course was probably the best ever. Unfortunately I am living to far away for a visit soon again.
Big thank you and compliment for the whole crew of the Oriole.

From the greeting at the door with a warm cocktail to the service which was attentive, but not smothering, everything was near perfection. The food was outstanding and the desire to accommodate special requests regarding shellfish and seafood was truly impressive. Worth every penny.
Best food experience of the last 5 years. In that time, I’ve dined at Alinea, Meadowood, Quince. Oriole’s offering surpassed those meals.
Very impressive experience.
The staff was wonderful, the food was delicious and that’s all you can ask for when going to a restaurant.
Returning from a wonderful trip cannot get better than with dinner at Oriole that serves new American cuisine. It is evident in the complete execution of all courses that they are aiming very high and should soon receive the accolades that come with it. It is my third time here, and it is fascinating to see how chef Sandoval is evolving with his cuisine. This time he delivered a translucent vision of cuisine a la America that genuinely absorbs the world via the melting pot, as the gastronomy embraces what tastes delectable. World-Class!
An amazing experience. Every bite was pure gold. This restaurant is a hidden gem with world class service. Bonus points for having a non-alcoholic beverage pairing.
Oriole has quickly become our favorite Chicago dining destination - the atmosphere is cozy and warm, the service is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient - and of course the food is absolutely spectacular!
A *MUST* for any fine dining fan!
Oriole was for us a fun once-in-a-lifetime dining experience. The food was incredible. The ambience was really wonderful. The service was stellar, except for this one faux pas: Apparently, there are two seatings, 6:30 and 9:30. Probably right around 9:00, we were about to order a couple of after-dinner drinks, and the
bill was rather abruptly presented to us, before we even had a chance to ask to see the after-dinner drink menu. This was not the best way to conclude this rather costly elegant meal. It felt like we were being pushed out the door, and, again, for what we paid for this meal, that didn't feel like a good way to end what otherwise could have been a phenomenal experience.
A spectacular meal at all levels. Everything from the text messaging before the meal down to the tea was perfect. Absolutely outstanding meal. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
My first time at a Michelin restaurant. Loved every single bite (and sip). Some dishes were familiar but excellently executed, some were completely unique flavor combinations that were a joy to experience, and some others were truly the best version of that particular food that I think I can image. Truly an amazing experience. I can't afford to do this on the regular, but I also wouldn't regret a bill like that every couple of years if it meant I got to enjoy a similar evening.
We were here in Chicago visiting our daughter and wanted to have a special night out!! It was awesome!!
One of the best restaurants in the United States. Incredible but you pay the price...
Amazing experience from beginning to end. Marilyn contacted me before our meal to make sure all things were taken care of. My husband and I have some food allergies and she made sure all of them were taken care of and notesd. Service was impeccable and staff didn't miss anu details. The food and wine pairings were spot on. A beautiful experience to celebrate my birthday. We will be back.
This quite possibly was the best overall meal my wife and I have ever had. Everything was spot on and flavors hit in the exact way you’d want them to. I cannot say enough about how fantastic this was.
Fantastic!! Best tasting menu restaurant ever... inventive and tasty!!! And the service was the best we had ever had... period.
This was such a special evening. From the moment we arrived to the end of the meal when we received our bag with cookies, menu, and recipe, we felt completely taken care of. Everything was just incredible, and I was particularly impressed with how serene the kitchen was. Tone is set at the top, and the ease with which everyone on staff handled everything reflected that. Thank you for a wonderful mini-vacation in our own town.
Oriole is the perfect fine dining restaurant - giving Alinea a run for its money as the best in Chicago.
This is my third visit to Oriole and this was by far one of my most favorite meals of all time! It was just perfect. The service, the food, the wine were just spot on. I can't wait to go back again!
Fantastic, memorable meal. From service to food - this place is a gem! A must try. Deserving of a 3rd star in my opinion...
Oriole is an outstanding experience that stays with you long after you’ve left and has you planning your next visit before the meal even ends.
Perfect dinner and I definitely have never said that before! Can’t recommend this highly enough.
