Vietnamese
Heralded as an escapist's paradise, Le Colonial is a celebration of the seductive spirit and vivid flavors of Vietnam. The restaurant opened on iconic Oak Street in March 2019, after moving from its location of over 20 years on Rush Street. Le Colonial features a dining room, an all-season terrace overlooking Oak Street, an evocative bar/lounge, and The Monkey Parlour (a private dining room with seating for up to 12 guests).

*Based on government orders, our restaurant is closed to dining-in services until further notice, due to COVID-19 restrictions & public health mandates. Our terrace will open soon, with limited seating & proper restrictions, pending guidance & directives from the authorities. Our main dining room and bar/lounge will remain closed in the meantime.

Waiters or back up waiters need to check when they take cutlery away to replace it before the food comes so that the food doesn’t sit on the table getting cold!

Our server was really nice and helpful in identifying vegan friendly dishes from the menu but the flavor of the food itself was a bit disappointing. I've eaten here several times and have had better meals.

This was a great experience. The food was delicious as always, service was perfect, and the experience felt safe overall. Our table was very far from others, which we really appreciated. The red snapper and seabass were both delicious.

Ordering a side of vermicelli noodles will cost you $11, a bit too high compared to a side of rice for $4. Saturday evening every table was filled, place was packed.
