What Insiders Are Saying
A formal French-Vietnamense restaurant in the Gold Coast that's not the coolest place in town but is quiet, well-run, and good.
Absolutely fantastic. The food was Veye tasty and the service was nice and professional.
We have eaten at Le Colonial previously. This time food was not 5 stars as before. Okay and unspectacular dishes Not every time can Resturant hit home run. Even this special restaurant can be average sometimes. We will be back
Waiter (Dmitri) was insincere and approaching unpleasant. Luckily other staff were helpful and pleasant. Food was excellent. Music was odd - Please no thumping backbeat while eating in this setting,
So noisy couldn’t have a conversation and tables crowded . Almost knocked over drinks at next table when try to squeeze in and out. Ribs were delicious but nothing else.
The best pho ever, anywhere. Even better than in Vietnam itself!
Missing some menu items like beignets and trout wrapped in banana leafs. Please, bring them back.
Wonderful flavors and ambiance. The scallop salad is fabulous!
The restaurant restroom needs attention.
Love the new location and valet parking option. Food was superb, as always.
The design of the restaurant sets you up for an elegant dining experience but the staff fails to deliver. I was very disappointed. The food is nothing special and the service is not gracious.
One entree was cold and the other entree was spicy when it requested to be mild.
The free dessert for the occasion was appreciated.
We were very excited for our visit to the new location. Upon arrival, we were greeted and sat immediately. The waiter approached our table and it seemed that he didn’t want to be there, was brusque and boarder-line rude. Our food was dropped off and we never saw the waiter again except to pay the bill.
The food was exceptional and we will absolutely give it another try, but we expect much better service and treatment!!
I have been going to Le Colonial for years. The new space is amazing.
I am missing some of our favorites off the old menu.
Biggest complaint is that it took close to 25 - 30 min maybe longer for our appetizers, it took the waiter a while to followup and figure out we hadn’t received them . The main course arrives rather swiftly after we ordered.
We enjoyed the scallop salad. We were disappointed to see the BBQ pork dish has been removed from the menu.
Food was wonderful our only negative was we felt rushed through our meal so they could turn over the table
The food was delicious and service very good. A bit loud for me and for a good conversation. We were seating in front area but I think the inside dining room was a bit quieter. Beautiful place. Definitely recommend
Amazing. Was not sure I would love it as much as the old one. It is spectacular!!!
Very nice food and atmosphere
favorite restaurant in chicago
Beautiful place, great good.
Excellent ambiance, food and service
Omg food is the best always
Wish the birthday desert was included and wait staff was not that friendly.
the ambiance of the new location is astounding. Food and service was on par with many years past experience. An excellent dining experience
We love this place, everything was excellent except there were quite a few large bones in the red snapper but they did warn us there might be. Been coming here for years and it never disappoints.
Always a wonderful experience. Excellent service, delicious food and drink, beautiful setting.
Quick lunch attending conference.
First time at this restaurant.
Awesome place! Great experience. Highly recommend!!!
We miss the
Loved! amazing food and ambiance.
The entre dishes were seriously sub par I think the menu has changed since moving locations - I had guests from Europe - one dish was so spicy my guest could only eat the shrimp- the duck entre was just plain duck with nothing else on the plate not even garnish - $$$ my dish had so many peppers & onions you couldn’t get a worse dish - my other guest ordered the filet it was so over cooked it was like leather - seriously how do you get away with i?? $350 later & not one thing was memorable stunningly disappointing! Its a pity it was my go to for out of town guest!
Like the new location, but loved the old one. Food was all fantastic
New location is very nice. Outside balcony seating, quiet inside seating plus a great bar area.
Superb food and view
Fantastic service and delicious food with sooooo many amazing choices. Pho was wonderful (and I’m comparing it to the Pho I had in Vietnam). Service was impeccable. I will definitely return to this restaurant next time I travel to Chicago.
We were rushed and the experience was definitely not worth the high price. Nice ambiance, however.
The new location is classy, light, bright and opulent...love it!!
Love this restaurant! We had the beef and duck dishes, both very good, but the beef was particularly amazing! Very tender and delicious flavor. From reception to wait staff, all were helpful and pleasant. Add that to the lovely ambience and you have a wonderful dining experience. My favorite Vietnamese restaurant!
The food was excellent. We ordered and received our food with minimal wait time. The service was phenomenal! We were checked upon multiple times throughout our dinner.
New location feels comfortable. Food quality and service remain high. Very enjoyable place for meeting and getting caught up with a friend
