We each look forward to welcoming you to Oriole.
Absolutely the best, this restaurant is a gem, very creative and delicious food, I really think the chef is a genius.
It is expensive so it is best for special occasions.
I was a little frustrated that they allow use of cell phones (voice) in the dining room. Table next to us took no less than 4 calls.
Oriole is one of the finest dining experiences I have had. The overall ambience, service, and menu were all up to a 5-star caliber. I have eaten at a couple of different multi-course, prix fixe menu restaurants, and this one reigns supreme over the others. It definitely earns its two Michelin stars—with a pairing of flavors and culinary surprises you may not expect to cohesively deliver a tasteful dish. I don’t want to spoil their current menu too much for those wanting to go in blind; so, I will just state I liked every single dish they brought forward.
Aside from the food, they also gave my partner and I a signed card and additional favors to make our anniversary particularly special. They seemed to really care how the diners felt about their restaurant and that type of thing definitely should not go unnoticed. I can’t wait until my next trip to Chicago as I have already booked a table well in advance for my return!
Unbelieveable. The experience, the food, the service, the ambience. Michelin has it wrong giving this place 2 stars. It should be 3. All of the food was hot. Drinks were extremely well balanced. Just unreal

Our evening at Oriole was very special and one that we will remember and cherish for years to come. Our server, Eryka was amazing, friendly, very knowledgeable, and absolutely darling. The staff worked seamlessly together, and we felt at home from the moment we walked in. It’s hard for us to pick just one favorite dish, as they were all incredible, but the mushroom really blew us away. They were also very accommodating to my allergies!
The staff at Oriole made Jeff’s birthday very special and we are very grateful for everyone that was a part of it. We look forward to returning!
One of the best dining experiences and the best choice for my sister's birthday. The food was delicious and they accommodated our dietary needs. The service was impeccable and they made it a special evening all around. It was a beautiful space that was comfortable with a Chicago feel.
Totally recommended. My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary here and the staff made us feel so special from beginning to end. Every single course was delicious and the wine pairing absolutely worth it. Amazing and unforgettable experience.
4th time. just keeps getting better & better. maybe the best restaurant in the US currently.
We were excited to dine at Oriole for our 38th anniversary. Our dinner more than lived up to our expectations. Each course was beautifully presented, very well explained, and most importantly delicious to eat. The standard wine pairing was tasty, presented a broad range of wines (including sake and pear cider), and informative descriptions from either wait staff or the sommelier. As to the staff, they were extremely attentive, yet unobtrusive and there was absolutely no sense that we were being rushed (in fact, at the conclusion of our evening I was surprised to see that 2 1/2 hours had passed). A final delightful touch was the goody bag, including chocolate chip cookies (including a recipe sheet), a printed menu that included our names and anniversary wishes, and a detailed menu of the wine pairing selections.
Amazing food and experience. Easily the best in Chicago
Overall an abundance of effort put into the food. Considering the 2.5 hour long meal, it is an experience rather than just a meal. However, the food was saltier than I would prefer.
It’s was all so beautiful.
The food is divine. It is a true dining “experience”.
Wow!!! Amazing experience- all around
Perhaps the best table service I've ever had. Like a well choreographed dance every step was perfect. While the dishes were very good, I didn't find them to be so delicious that I swooned over them and frankly, at this level I want to swoon! May be just my personal taste but my dining partner felt pretty much the same way. For perspective, I've dined at many fine restaurants over the years including Paul Bocuse Restaurant, Alinea and the French Laundry.
Wow! Amazing! I can’t wait for the menu to change to visit again. The staff is incredible.....& the culinary experience is 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Treat yourself to the premium beverage experience & you won’t be disappointed. My only comment is that they should ask guests to refrain from wearing perfume or cologne....as it interferes with other guests experience.
Best meal I've had in the US
Fabulous experience, the ambience, service was impeccable and every detail thought through. The food was exceptional, with every dish providing an incredible taste, texture and flavour. Would highly recommended.
Amazing food. Flavors and textures I’ve never experienced before. We shared the standard wine pairing which was plenty and definitely added to the overall dining experience. A full one would have been too much. Service was professional and courteous. The most expensive meal I’ve ever had. It’s was terrific but $650 for dinner for two and a split pairing (before) tip was a kick in the pants.
incredible in every way!
Excellent food and service. Very nice. Romantic, business, does not matter. Very good.
Beyond this incredible! Hands down better than Aliena.
Greatest dinner ever an experience of a lifetime
Favorite restaurant on Earth!
Phenomenal , One of the best meals I’ve ever had.
An incredible experience. The sommelier was brilliant. The food was extraordinarily. The entry is unique and exciting, an experience unto itself. They treated us beautifully for our anniversary.
Easily one of the best three meals I've ever had. Only one of a few restaurants where EVERY course in the tasting menu was superlative.
One of the top restaurants in the city. Ate there a year ago, and while the ingredients were similar, it was completely new presentations of their classic dishes. That shows skill and creativity. The staff is the kindest and most intelligent in the city. Everyone who eats at Oriole recognizes it as the top.
My cab was 10 minutes late and she called me from Oriole wondering why. She told me they needed my table later that night and since I was ten minutes behind that I had better “keep up with the kitchen “. When google maps got us there we could not find the entrance. I was delayed ten more minutes looking for the entrance. Beware, you must “keep up with the kitchen “ and don’t let traffic delay you from servicing the diners coming after you!
Very elegant restaurant. Service was very good. Would have liked it better if all the servers explained about the dishes in a way that I could hear about them better. Some did a very fine job, while others were kind of whispering maybe because they are trying not to disrupt the ambience of the place. The dishes were unique, thoughtful, and very delicious. Specially enjoyed the sablefish course, as well as the rind and uni dish. The wagyu beef was phenomenal. The amount of dishes were just enough for the 2 1/2 hours experience. The cookie and the cookie recipe that were given as to go gifts were a nice touch.
Absolutely amazing! Can’t wait to go back. The food was sublime. The pairing was perfect. Service was excellent.
Amazing food, fantastic service. I would imagine it takes tremendous talent and dedication to create this experience. Try the reserve wine pairing, it just might be the best wine pairing in the world!
Had a great experience, service is one of a kind, and the food was amazing!!
After 35 years of special occasions at restaurants, this is in the top two and perhaps number one all time. Incredibly creative and delicious items, paired perfectly with wine, sake and other libations, with servers who are friendly and fastidious without pretension. An amazing experience.
Amazing food, experience Would definitely come back again
Great great great great
An unforgettable experience, in all the best ways. The service is the best I’ve ever had at any restaurant and the food was equally outstanding. I would highly recommend this experience.
Best meal of my life! Everything mas perfect and delicious!
Food was delicious and original, service is the best I’ve seen in the city.
