Le Colonial - Chicago
Book your next event with us
The staff is amazing. I love the flavors, light, not overly complex, and decadent.
Second time there in new location
First time service was an A+
This time unimpressed by service all around !
Amazing dining experience + service and atmosphere top shelf!
We were among the earliest arrivals of the evening but were given the worst table in the restaurant. Center of the service walkway, in the walkway to the bar, front door and other rooms. My chair was bumped at least 30 times by both patrons and service people. Between two large party tables of screeching people. When we told the manager he could have offered us a better table and he did not. Food was as fabulous as it’s been for the 25 years we have loved this restaurant. We spent nearly $400 for 2 of us. We will NEVER return.
Service was good. Ambience is top notch. Food was very good until I had my lunch entree which was the salad with chicken. It
Good food, amazing ambience! The food at Slanted Door in SF is much better but this was very good. Gorgeous bar area!
Great experience! Will be back!
It is a great experience
From the moment you step into Le Colonial, you are transported off the busy Chicago streets into another world. Aptly decorated with an exceptional bar and breezy dining room, Le Colonial matches excellence in ambiance with an excellent dining experience. The food was delicious, appropriately portioned for sharing, and full of the flavor of the South Pacific with the refinement of French cooking. I absolutely would recommend Le Colonial for any occasion.
Love this place! The new Le Colonial has all of the great things of the original in a beautiful new space. The front room is bright and sunny! The bar is cosy and wonderful. Food is always terrific and they are great at making modifications!
This was my second time but first time at the new location. Food and service were tremendous.
Beautiful ambience and real vietnamese/ south east asia food.
Fabulous food and atmosphere!
The oxtail soup while very tasty was not hot. The shrimp dish was only so so. The chicken curry dish was outstanding.
The new space is wonderful and the food was awesome.
Charming space, great service. Food good but some dishes were lacking in flavor.
We loved everything! The food was delicious and the services was great even thought the restaurant was very busy
Very good service and lively sophisticated atmosphere.
Would definitely recommend.
Great food, service and atmosphere
Excellent food. Red Snapper and filet were excellent as were baby back ribs and potsticker appetizers. Service was also VERY good; valet service very slow. Will return again
A wonderful time with family enjoying delicious food.
No recognition of our anniversary even though it was on our reservation and confirmed when the reservation was confirmed.
Great atmosphere. Had a drink in the lounge before dinner. I had the lychee martini and it was fabulous-light and not too sweet. My husband had an Old Fashioned that was very good. We had dinner in the room overlooking the street by the window. Great view and festive lively vibe in the room. I had the shrimp green curry. We also had the chicken pot stickers for an appetizer. All the food was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back.
The venue is beautiful. Service was excellent. Try shrimp and pork egg rolls. Beef and thick rice noodles were delicious!
Very nice as usual but since the Oak Street location open there is a tendency for show over practicable. For instance the lettuce leaves look but are to small to use and you deleted the bbq entree that menu since the Chicago opening. We have been going to Le Colonial since its Chicago opening and still like it but not as much.
Just simply amazing... new location... same staff ... we have been going for 20+ years. Took kids this time... they loved it as well.
Somehow the food always exceeds my expectations. This time we brought the kids and they also enjoyed the food. Wine list is very solid—something to find for any connoisseur.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Unfortunately, our server was not attentive. We had to flag him down several times to get service.
A wonderful New Year's Eve dinner. Love the new location, the food is excellent, the staff is fabulous, did not feel rushed, the wait for our table was short and we were taken care of in the bar while waiting. Can't wait to go back.
It was our New Year’s Eve dinner. The Food and wines were excellent!
Wonderful evening! Food and wait staff was fantastic!
We have found Le Colonial to be the most consistently excellent cuisine in Chicago. A delightful experience.
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time! Wonderful food and ambience!
Le Colonial consistently performs 5 Star service, food, and ambience on every visit. This was our 2nd New Years Eve celebration and the service and relaxed care on a busy evening made for a wonderful experience. Cannot wait to visit for another fine dining and enjoyable meal.
For anyone who likes Thai food, Le Colonial is an excellent choice. The tables for two are all banquette style
so you are very close to fellow diners. The waiters were very accommodating in explaining dishes and making suggestions.
Great restaurant as always!
What a beautiful restaurant to enjoy a lovely meal. Go early and have a seat at the bar/lounge if you can. The bar and restaurant are both beautiful and make you think of a time gone by. The food is excellent and there are many really nice options for a vegetarian or a meat eater. The staff is friendly, helpful with menu questions and overall excellent. Ask the server for their recommendation. Our table really enjoyed the crispy vegetable rolls and loved that the server gave us some advise on one dishes that could easily work for a vegetarian with simple modifications. Delightful evening and excellent food.
New location is awesome. Fantastic food. Terrific service.
Extremely disappointing - not loyal to regular customers. I made a reservation 91 days out (which I made that notation in the comment section) so i could get the table we enjoy sitting at for our anniversary. I even returned the call to confirm our reservation and made sure they were aware of my request which she said they were. When we arrived EARLY, they had given our table away then lied abut what happened. To top things off, the manager did not care. He didn’t even try to get us another table. We had to wait an hour. The manger in the bar was rude too. The worst thing is we really enjoyed going to this restaurant and dine here monthly. At this point, not sure I’ll ever return especially since i make all our reservations.
We sat on the lively porch area.
Our server was very hospitable and our only complaint was that our entrees came much too quickly after our appetizers.
We were not rushed to leave our table but the”too quick” service of entrees made us feel rushed nonetheless.
I hosted this dinner for my son and his dear girlfriend as a very special night out for us.
My gulf shrimp curry was delicious as were the rib appetizer, chicken dumplings . The crispy shrimp/ pork rolls were a bit too garlicky.
The setting is delightful.
