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.

I return again and again with different friends for lunch mainly and we indulge in every superb preparation they make. In all the dishes we've tried, there has NEVER been the slightest disappointment. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is costly but worth every penny. Subtle, refined, beautifully presented, fine ingredients.

The place was very nice. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The noise level and rudeness of multiple customers put a damper on dinner.

We were told we could not reserve a window table. When we arrived, two were open, the hostess said she could not seat us there as she had reserved them???? She sat us at a not so comfortable table by the door.

Will definitely come back for the food. Our server seemed a little distracted and didn't check on us/took a while to bring things out. We got the wrong drink and it took 10/15 minutes before she came back around for us to inform them that we needed a correction.
Overall it was good food and i'd give it another chance.

We have been loyal patrons of Le Colonial for many years— at the old location and now at the Oak Street location. We have patronized the restaurant by taking food out all through the pandemic. After being vaccinated, we decided that it was ok to eat in again. Dinner was delicious, and our server very good BUT the restaurant is not observing the 50% capacity regulation. There were a lot of people there on Saturday night, and I felt uncomfortable about it. I just think other diners should be aware.

It is a lovely restaurant however there was a lot of people
Being very loud in the front part where we were sitting.
It was very hard to have a conversation with my friend right across from me. I wished the staff would have told them that there are other patrons here.

The food was delicious! We ate the spicy chicken stir fry and the red snapper with sides of noodles, veggies and rice. The service was great, our waitress was very helpful and extremely fast! They cut the fish right at the table. Dessert was amazing too along with the Vietnamese coffee. Definitely will be going back!

Beautiful dining room overlooking Oak Street with gorgeous big open windows. The staff was very friendly and our server was attentive, always made sure we were good for drinks. Food was good, we had the spring rolls and ba sate but it could’ve stood to be just a little more flavorful and perhaps a few bucks cheaper, but overall we were satisfied. Drinks were fantastic, we had gin cosmopolitans (heavy pour). Seems like it would be a great spot for multiple occasions, we were there for a catch up but there were also parties there working and grabbing a bite to eat, and I would think it’d be a gorgeous date spot in the evening time as well. Overall a fantastic spot that I would definitely visit again and recommend to friends!

First, it was a Beautiful spring day so the front windows were open. We actually had a window table to enjoy the view and weather. Our Waiter was so helpful to us with the menu and everything he suggested was wonderful. This was the second time we were there for dinner and look forward to our next.

Like being in colonial Vietnam, French decadence served up with one the best cuisines in the world! My out of town guests love it, so I'm a repeat l patron. Another plus, Le Colonial has been in business for decades!
