Absolutely wonderful! All of our entrees and appetizers were wonderful - not a bad one in the bunch. The waiter made great suggestions - spot on! The host was also so very nice - gave me a complementary sparkling cocktail as it was my birthday. So very thoughtful! I’d return without hesitation.
Great experience overall. Service was a bit on the slow side (felt forgotten at times) but the food was good. Highly recommend the pho and also the salmon entree. I will come back again
We Absolutely Loved our time with you! Look forward to our Next Visit!
Belated Valentine’s Day dinner. Delicious in every way! Drinks are innovative and tasty. The food was delightful!
Always a special evening at Le Colonial! The Staff, food and ambience are always amazing
Great place to meet with friends or business associate for lunch or in the evening
The food was excellent, but the with the waiter I had, it was the most embarrassing experience in life. I went there for Valentine's Day, along with a special female I was dating. She said it was her fav place, so we went. Dinner was great in the beginning. It's the end of the night and I get the bill. It was for $173, a lil more than I expected, bc the waiter charged me for the 2 $75 plates (holiday special) when I clearly didn't ask for that. He insisted he did it that way bc he was saving me money, so I agreed. My date decided to be considerate and offer to pay the gratuity fee of $23, bc even she thought the bill was high. And she never pays. When the waiter came for the check, I clearly told him to charge $150 to my card and 23 to hers. 3 minutes later the waiter brings the check, this is when ish started hitting the fan! The waiter had split the check down the middle and charged us both $86.50. My date then had started to complain quietly to the waiter about the mistake. I told her to calm down, it was a simple error, and he would fix it. So he took the check back, and went to fix it. I looked at the corrected check he brought back, and everything looked fine. Then he says my card was debited fine, but her money won't be credited back on her card until 12am. That's when my date got furious, bc she thought they weren't going to credit her at 12am. Right after that, my date stormed out, left me, n took an Uber home. I'm not rich, so I rarely go to nice restaurants like this, unless it's special like her. I'm sure it didn't help that i was a black guy with a beautiful European woman. So the snobs that were being nosey in this restaurant probably automatically assumed the issue was that I couldn't afford the bill. Never have I ever felt so low of a man until that point. All bc one stupid mistake on the check. Luckily she is still dating me bc she realized she overreacted and I got her some nice things from Victoria Secret for the holiday, she said she loved it.
Overall we had a disappointing valentine’s day dinner here. I had been wanting to try the restaurant so made a reservation well in advance. However neither the website or the two people who called to confirm my reservation ever told me it was going to be a prix fixe meal. I don’t generally mind this on busy nights like valentine’s but the quality of the food just wasn’t worth it. The cost was $75 per person and the meal selections were mostly from the regular menu, at which I priced out our selections to be worth a maximum of $50. My fiancé enjoyed his calamari appetizer but I found my beef to be not of the best quality and then the curry I had as my main was quite bland and really nothing special. They also included an automatic gratuity so with a cheap bottle of wine our meal came out to $250 for the two of us. Service was good but the food was just not worth the expense.
Another incredible meal at our favorite restaurant. The Valentine’s Day prix fixe menu offered many sumptuous options. Le Colonial is a Chicago gem!
We were disappointed to find that the valentines dinner was a preset menu. We come here often and enjoy ordering a variety of menu items to share.
Our dinner on 2/14/18 was 75.00 person which is much more than we would have spent ordering off the regular menu. Overall this was our worst dining experience at Le Colonial.
