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.
Amazing restaurant! Amazing food and service. As an added bonus, they know how to make good adult beverages!! FIVE YUMS!!!
Always enjoy good food & ambiance at
Le Colonial! Hoping it will continue once they move to their new venue on Oak St..
Birthday luncheon for my daughter!
Fantastic service and excellent service led to a great business meeting. This restaurant is top notch.
Good food and service convenient location
Got together with medical school classmates... our 8th annual at Le Colonial
Le Colonial is reliably very good in terms of food service and ambience. I have been here 3 times when we come in from out of town and have never been disappointed
Unfortunately I had to wait 1 hour to be seated. I had made my reservation several days in advance. Drinks was good and food was ok.
Loved the food and drinks however tables were way too close and it was hard to talk to each other, our table was also crooked which made it a little difficult to enjoy our experience as we were worried about knocking off food/drinks.
Wedding dress shopping !
Unique delicious cuisine! Highly recommend!
Excellent food, service & ambiance! Definitely will be back!!
The restaurant is one of the best in Chicago. We have always been treated extremely well. The service is the best.
The food is unique and always good. We had a wonderful evening there.
We very much enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and the delicious food.
Anniversaire très bien
We love the place!! Its one of our very favorite places in Chicago!! Love the ambiance and old style Asian colonial atmosphere. Hopefully the new location will be as good!!
Unfortunately the food was not even remotely good. Service was okay. Nothing to remember. I would never go back just due to how expensive it was
Absolutely incredible! One of my favorites in the world!! Top 10 list for sure!
One of the best restaurants in Chicago, never disappoints. Highly recommended
One of our favorite Chicago restaurants. Great food and ambiance. The Vietnamese coffee is a desert all by itself!
Good food, good service, too dark to read menu or see food when it was served.
Two women dining out are not given the same attention/service as two men or even a man with a woman.
Good food, great service, nice ambience ..... been going there for 25 years and counting ..... no regrets whatsoever
There are plenty of great places to dine in downtown Chicago but if you are looking for something really special this place is a gem. Le Colonial offers a perfect blend of French and Asian inspiration that will please the taste of the most discriminating foodie.
Delicious! Great business meal, appetizers to share were perfect (egg rolls, spring rolls, calamari) and I ordered the salmon served on rice noodles. Fantastic!
The restaurant smells heavenly the moment you walk in. Tables are intimately close together, which somehow adds to ambiance rather than feeling too tight. I had the trout with mushrooms, which was delicious.
3rd time to visit and I am always happy with the food and service
Excellent experience! We have eaten here for at least 5 years together and love the food, the ambience and the service every time. Recommend the upstairs for date nights and/or special occasions. It is our favorite restaurant
I had an amazing date with amazing with food.
Le Colonial has been and will also be my all time favorite restaurants. Great food! Great ambiance and bar scene.
Solid choice for a great lunch venue. Will happily return the next time I am in Chicago
This is one of our very favorite restaurants in Chicago. We make it a point to go there each time we're in town. We were seated on the second floor, on the front "balcony" as requested and as has always been our preference. I described the noise level as "energetic", which I guess is Open Table's way of saying it was over-the-top loud, to the point that we couldn't carry on a conversation at our table of 4. The food was excellent, as always and the service was reasonable, though not as good as in the past. Honestly, I understand that a restaurant has no way of controlling the volume of its' clientele...I just consider this a result of a booming economy!
Our server did not check on us after we got our food, the issue was that I have a food allergy that I communicated and the item was all over my main and side dish. We finally flagged someone down to fix it and we had to wait, one of us with food and another waiting.
They did nothing to address this issue. Won't go back.
excellent dining experience! The food was outstanding!
Nice restaurant with genuine colonial feeling.
Very good grilled trout with mushrooms & peanut curry sauce (+).
Its been a while since we have been to Le Colonial and it impressed us again. Great option if you are looking for something a little different to the steak houses etc.
Consistently the most professional and attentive staff and the most delicious food. I know that I could never perfect the oxtail broth for the pho.
We are not from Chicago, but whenever we visit, it’s one of our first food stops! Obviously, the waiter remembered us from months ago😊
The food was amazing as always. I highly recommend the red snapper and share! Gets a little crowded during busy hours so be prepared to wait a little if you don’t make reservation in advance. Service was also outstanding! I highly recommend this place for a group lunch/dinner and be adventurous with your order ;-)
