What Insiders Are Saying
Oriole is a fancy and expensive tasting menu restaurant that’s great for a special occasion.
I don’t think any part of this experience could be improved
It was quite an experience. Not for the faint of heart. Food was well thought and well crafted. Service was excellent, BUT it was all very uptight. Instead of being excited between courses, I found myself nervous and a little afraid at times. It is a small space and the number of servers was a little daunting. It was nice to be able to see into the kitchen....all chefs working with tweezers. I will not go again, but if anyone is looking for a unique - expensive- food experience, this is your place!!
An absolute symphony....from the moment you arrive at the door, til the moment you leave the experience is a work of art. My best friend and I were in town for a wedding, and her being from a small town in Georgia, but the ultimate “foodie”, I wanted her to have a dining experience she would never forget....mission accomplished. It was our first Michelin star restaurant, and we did the tasting menu with standard wine pairing....unbelievable...Thank you, Noah and to every person there❤️.
Incredible meal.....If you haven’t eaten here...SHAME ON YOU! Don’t walk....RUN and get a reservation immediately. I’m totally serious
Outstanding cool vibe
Amazing service and the most amazing meal. It was her birthday and they really made her feel special. I honestly feel that we had a better meal and experience here than at some of the 3 Star Michelin restaurants that we have dined in the past.
From start to finish this place is impressive. From host greeting to the chef coming out and adding personal congratulatory touches to our experience (we were celebrating a new job) this was so much fun. The wine pairings were spot on recommended and the food was interesting at every turn. Was it pricey, sure but that’s bc you aren’t getting an experience like this anywhere else. Top 3 meals of my lifetime.
Eating at Oriole was an amazing experience and is well worth booking. I can’t even begin to describe how delicious each dish was. Highly recommended.
A fantastic experience from the very start. Really loved it.
Run, don't walk to Oriole. Brilliant. Genius. Stellar.
Where do I begin? From the moment we stepped foot into the restaurant to the moment they saw us into a cab, hands down the best service I've ever experienced at a fine dining restaurant. I would definitely go back when I'm in Chicago.
One of the best overall dining experiences I have ever known!! Fabulous ambiance, unbelievable service and amazing food. Worth the investment!!!!
Best dining experience to date! I loved the place, the service and most importantly, the Food! I can't wait to go back again!
Second time, and would return in an instant. Fabulous! Every need was taken care of. The food and the wine pairing were fabulous. The device de bourgone shuffle was one of the best things ever ever eaten, outstanding!
Absolutely fantastic! Deserving of the third Michelin star!!!
There aren’t enough stars to describe dinner here! Thank you for making my visit so special!!
Best restaurant in Chicago by a long long long shot
Our dining experience at Oriole was truly spectacular. The tasting menu dishes were very unique and presented beautifully. The flavors and quality was superb. Our primary server and sommelier provided excellent service.
My wife’s birthday
We came in to experience Oriole and were not disappointed
The idea of eating @ 9:30 seemed to be daunting, however, it was awesome!!!!
Service was perfect all night
The food was very exciting overall and, there were a number of standouts
A couple of the early dishes seemed a bit salt forward
Overall Food was well done
Lehua and Hannah were very happy with the attention they were shown
Mahalo for a Wonderful Memory
Excellent food. Tremendous service, unobtrusive but always immediate, anticipating needs.
Second time dining at Oriole. Superb, sublime, can’t say enough about Oriole! Every item on the menu was out of this world. Service was knowledgeable and impeccable. The take home bag of ingredients was a nice touch. When you dine at Oriole take the time to savor and appreciate each dish. I have seen so many patrons “wolf” down their meals and run out. How they can appreciate all the wonderful flavors in each dish I have no idea.
Phenomenal meal, staff, and atmosphere. Could not have been more impressed with the pace and variety of the courses. Highly recommend!
We came here for my girlfriends birthday and she couldn't have been happier. From start to finish they work hard to make it a special experience. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable and the food is indescribably good. They are very small bites but pack so much flavor and textures. It's how food like this should be done. They do a lot of little special touches that I won't share so as to not spoil the surprise.
Every single bite was delicious. The overall experience spectacular.
What an unbelievable meal. Truly one of the best I've ever had in Chicago.
Top of the line. Excellent experience.
Amazing meal. Attention to detail and impeccable service. One of the best meals I’ve eaten in my life!!
As always, the food was superior and the wait staff is incredibly good.
Hands down the best meal I ever had! As for service, here’s what I’ll say, I’m left handed, they noticed(!) and set all my courses left handed. I can’t tell you how much that speaks to me about top level service. This wasn’t french service it was personalized service! Lastly, the wine pairings on the “standard” list were exceptional and so finely selected.
Perhaps the best meal we have had this year; just a stellar all-around experience. Oriole is arguably Chicago's best restaurant and is just about perfection. Best service in town, elegant yet super comfortable, excellent beverage program and exquisite food from the opening bites through desserts. Well worth the splurge; am already eagerly anticipating a return visit.
Exquisite. Continues to be one of the best dinning experiences of my life. Chicago is lucky to have such an amazing establishment. I cannot wait to come back. I am Honoured and privileged.
Our night was a wonderful experience. I think the ambiance is just right and the food with wine pairings were excellent. If you are looking for a special night out/ dining experience, I highly recommend Oriole.
This was our second visit to Oriole and it did not disappoint. Although it is 13 courses, they pace it well and keep portions small, so you aren’t overly stuffed by the end. Servers are incredibly well informed regarding food and wine, but are not pretentious. Noah Sandoval circulates to every table and was in the kitchen all evening, clearly still very involved in menu. I have been to many of the top restaurants in the city, and this is our favorite. Highly recommend for a special occasion or business dinner.
Phantastic food and excellent service in an interesting ambiance in an old warehouse. The set 11course menu is perfectly composed and surprises with new and innovative culinary combinations.
Most incredible meal ever! I’d highly recommend it. Thank you to the Oriole team for a great experience!
An experience. Be prepared to be surprised by every course. Exceptional service from the world-class staff.
I ate here and Alinea in the same week - the food was better here. More traditional tasting menu cuisine and every dish was delicious. If you want a flashy experience, go to Alinea. If you want to delight the tastebuds, go here.
Only two words of warning - when I first arrived I was offered a welcome cocktail, so though I agreed to one nothing was ever provided. Also watch your toes if the server moves tables or chairs for you; one pushed the table onto my foot.
Despite those trivial mishaps, well worth the experience.
Wonderful. Worth all of the hype. Quite expensive (as expected), but may want to reserve only for special occasions. Highly suggest the non-spirit pairings (despite the expense).
The food and drinks were amazing! The service was very attentive without being pretentious. A perfect dining experience.
