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).

Effective January 3rd 2022, the City of Chicago requires all patrons age 5 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and weak a mask to visit this location.

    Ella was great! Thanks for a lovely experience. The shrimp-wrapped sugar cane, short ribs, and pork egg rolls were delicious! So were the curries. We will be back.

    Wonderful ambience, but when our food was served, one item was not what we ordered. The server removed it, but we found it included on our bill. Luckily we studied the bill and found it. When we told the server, she immediately removed it.

    Had a great dinner with my wife and one of her best girlfriends. Just an opportunity to enjoy a delightful time. Service, as usual was very efficient, friendly and informative. It was nice to see your staff were busy, but very subtle and informed in their service. Great to see staff and several who recognized us even though they weren’t serving our table. If you’ve never been to Le Colonial, we certainly recommend it as it’s a Chicago classic. Looking forward to seeing your crew again soon! Kind regards, Jake and Elwood Chicago!

    Great, historic place at the Gold Coast. This place always has a good ambiance ( Any day of the week). Interesting cuisine , interesting aesthetic. Food is cozy except for a chilled and exceptional lychee martini ( the best in town). Service is usually very attentive.

    The service and atmosphere were great. The food was lackluster. This place was overhyped, but underwhelming. The monkfish was flavorless and texture less. The pho was bland and lacked depth. The half duck… man, that should not be on the menu, it was gummy, lacked flavor, and the rice that came with it was anemic. The chicken cabbage salad was the best dish, it was crunchy and delicious. And the ice cream was good!

    Five of us were out to dinner and across the board each and every person really liked but more often loved the food they ordered. I personally loved everything I had from the spareribs, to their rice noodle chicken and mushroom ravioli, the pho soup, and a yellow curry chicken. Staff was extremely courteous, always prompt and pleasant.

    The food is fresh and light, with many fresh herbs. The beef is of the highest quality. The prices are on the higher side, but it is a treat to enjoy this delicious food in a lovely sun room with lots of windows. The service is always outstanding.

    I chose Le Colonial to celebrate my daughter in-law’s birthday. I remembered the ambiance as being stunning and the food outstanding. We were a party of four seated on the patio which is among the most beautiful settings in Chicago. The table was tight and better suited for a two top. There was barely room on the table for our shared plates. The service was adequate but did not enhance our dining experience. She took our orders and when we didn’t want more cocktails, she disappeared. The shareable dishes were excellent however our entrees were good, not outstanding. Overall, I wanted a special evening and it was fine but not exceptional. At this price point, I expected more. Disappointed.

    Food and cocktails were outstanding!! The sizzling beef and crispy vegetable rolls were my favorite. The lychee martini was sweet but strong and not overwhelming. Celebrating a birthday and it was okay place for celebration but would definitely return for everyday dining again. Service was alright but the service assistant was very attentive saving the day. Thank you again!!! :)

    The server spilled our red wine over two of our guests. We had to ask for towels and club soda. The server brought us a bottle of wine as a replacement charged us for it and then comp’ed us for the cheapest glass of red wine. When I commented on my experience to the manager he said what should I do fire the person? Actually he could have comp’ed the wine! Our dry cleaning bill is more than the cost of one glass of wine. This was embarrassing as the host of our party. I would expect more from a restaurant that has a dress code policy.
