What Insiders Are Saying
Learn the meaning of "Asian fusion." Or just have a really good lunch.
Great place, but going for their 8th anniversary was a bad idea. Not enough tables, too many people. Didn't get much of their amazing food without waiting for a while. I would recommend to go on a normal night.
This evening was a celebration of ChoLon’s 8th Year and it was fantastic- the food and drinks served were wonderful and delicious and the new improvements to ChoLon’s look great!
This restaurant will always be my favorite-Chef Lon continues to delight us all with his culinary expertise and we delight in every visit!!!
Improvisations on traditional themes. So delicious & great cocktails.
Spectacular service and food. Shout out to Michael the Maitre D who scrambled at the last minute to add 3 to our party. Love this place. Food is to die for!
We had a great time for our special dinner! The food was amazing and staff was friendly. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary but they didn’t do anything special. We will still go back but didn’t really expect anything anyways. The toast, shrimp spring rolls, dumplings and calamari are to die for!
Amazing as usual! Must try the Pork Belly Honey Buns!
Outstanding, as always. Introduced two friends to your restaurant. They were blown away!
A friend who has a relative that works at the restaurant recommended this, so we went after the theater. The menu was creative, distinctive and offered many options for serving size and sharing. We chose the dumplings and tuna as appetizers, then each chose our own entrees. They recommend about four dishes overall, assuming some sharing. The presentation and flavor of the ahi was amazing...kind of like poke, but with amazing, unique fresh ingredients. The ahi serving size was ample. I had the mussels, and loved the addition of pork belly in the curry sauce. My husband had the scallops, which were perfection...but hey, you never get enough in a restaurant. The service was exceptional. Believe Dave was our main guy, but everyone seemed to cover for each other seamlessly. Love the atmosphere! My only “complaint” is that it is a little pricey, especially given that 2 people might share 4 dishes. But I also get it, because the ingredients were wonderful, and the dishes artfully created. We would likely not save this for a special day, but go more frequently and will walk from the theater again.
We had dinner there for a special occasion and it did not disappoint. The scallops with fennel purée were the highlight of the meal and I’d definitely get the doughnuts and coffee ice cream again for dessert. Yum! We also met Chef Lon while dining and he couldn’t have been more pleasant. Can’t wait to go back.
Brought my entire family for my girlfriend’s birthday dinner. Absolutely horrendous food, entire family was sick afterwards, mother sick over the weekend. Overpriced for the quality and quantity of food. Fusion food done WRONG.
Food was wack and not worth the price
Everything was delicious. Excellent menu much of which was new to us. There were four of us, and we were all in agreement that both the food and the service were outstanding
Wow, great and innovative menu. The food did impress.
The food was amazing! Enjoyed every bite. The servers were very attentive and explained everything that came out. My coworker and I tried a few different drinks and they were all tasty.
True to its description of modern Asian food. The menu is not large but it is diverse. Everything we tried was flavorful and fresh.
The dining experience was very pleasant. We ordered 5 different dishes and they were all great. Would definitely come back. Just note that the price is high for some of the dishes - e.g. lamb costs $48 for 4 pieces.
Nice food and nice service, we all like the food there
I ate here twice last week to celebrate my birthday. Once for lunch; once for dinner. Outstanding service and amazing food both times. Thank you.
Food and service is extremely sub-par. The environment is nice, but everything else about this restaurant is overrated. Would not recommend. Plenty of other Asian fusion restaurants getting it right to waste time/money here. Just meh.
Delicious food with attentive service and good pace of meal
Great experience !Delicious and creative food. Our waiter Daniel was so attentive.Super service
Highly recommend french onion soup dumplings. Heaven in one bite.
We've been to Cholon many times and it used to be delicious. Now it's only ordinary. The prices have increased while the quality decreased and we probably won't return again
Outstanding food and service, I would highly recommend!
Awesome restaurant...ask Amy for recommendations, she is awesome.
the service was outstanding from the moment we walked in till we sat down. We were delighted that everyone in the restaurant served us even though there was one particular server that made it his role to always ask us how things were going. the food was a total experience. Everything we tasted had a unique amazing taste. the wine selection was perfect. Overall we could not have asked for a better eating experience. thank you
Overall we had a great experience. The server was attentive and friendly. Our only criticism was that they explain their dining philosophy as family style with all plates to share. We couldn’t understand why some plates came with three pieces. Not convenient to split when using chopsticks. Everything was delicious though!
Great service and even better food!!! Soup Dumplings were UNREAL.
Some of the best service we've had at a restaurant in a while. Waiter knew the menu well, helped us make choices and kept us on schedule to make the 8:00 pm show.
Food was excellent.
As always, the food did not disappoint and the soup dumplings are always on point!
Loved the onion soup dumplings, pork belly buns and calamari. Wonderful flavors. Interesting wine list. Waiter recommended a Greek white that went great with the food. Very enjoyable evening.
I put a review on Yelp the day we went--and I never put reviews on Yelp. It was THAT good. Food flavors were extraordinary. Presentation was beautiful. We enjoyed multiple orders of soup dumplings. They were unlike anything I've ever had. FANTASTIC. I could make a meal of just these. Just go. You'll drop some cash, but it's 100% worth it!!!
After hearing so many great reviews, I was really disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. Perhaps they’ve become complacent. Time to refresh the menu and step up their game.
The dumplings were super delicious, as well as the first bite of steak that melts in your mouth! A little pricey but worth it, food and service were great
Wonderful atmosphere and a creative menu along with great service - we will be back!
Always a memorable experience!
Service was substandard. Three different servers tried to remove our plates while we were eating. I will not go back.
I was in Denver for business. The service was welcoming even though I was a party of 1. The food was intriguing and tasty. Though the menu is set up to share there was a side menu for smaller portions that allowed me to still sample several dishes. The server was knowledgeable and helpful. Loved it.
Relatively small menu with all dished designed to be shared. We had 3 dishes plus dessert between us. The low point was dessert, as we didn't care for the highly recommended feta cheese cake and coffee was so-so. But the 3 dishes we had for dinner would definitely bring us back.
This is a FANTASTIC restaurant. I am a complete FOOD SNOB. I lived in the city of Chicago for over 25 years and thus have tasted some of the finest chefs in the world. This rates up with the best in Chicago as well as restaurants I have eaten in New York, New Orleans, San Fran and Paris. From start to finish this was AMAZING. Our server, Daniel so helpful. Kyle and Jacob, two chefs, so entertaining and informative as we sat at the Chef's table . I can't wait to go again. Several days later still remembering with pleasure EVERY SINGLE BITE OF FOOD.
