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.

The speed is extremely slow and we had dinner for almost 3h! The small plates are good but the big plates are just mediocre. The chicken curry has eggplants, mango etc, which is weird to me. The dessert is not as tasty as I imagined. The prices are overall expensive. Not recommend.

We were initially seated in the bar area. It was quite loud. We were moved to the front porch room and it was wonderful! The service was great and the food was outstanding. We ordered three appetizers and split an entree. Everything was perfect.

Outstanding restaurant, one of the finest Asian restaurants' in Chicago!
The dining rooms are embraced with ceiling-high real plants feeling like a true tropical paradise. All the food is fresh and tasteful in every way, especially the Spring Roll starter, the best! Everything from the décor, wait-staff, and especially the food deserves a full 10+ rating!!!

I came here with my fiancé and friend. We shared three small plates and the snapper and Brussel sprouts, and dessert. Loved the feel inside of the restaurant and al of the food was amazing! We all loved everything and agreed that we would definitely be back to dine.

Nice wait staff and interior decor. Food was excellent. Only room for improvement would’ve been the drinks IMO. Other than that, it was a great dining experience!
