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.

    Ha! My special occasion was my daughter’s graduation from Vanderbilt’s Nurse practitioner program but not a peep from the staff. When I arrived the 3 young women at the desk could not find my reservation for a long while. We were finally seated at the worst possible table between a hard walk of wine bottles, the service station and hall from which the food was brought out of the kitchen. Lastly, the champagne, not the least expensive glass I may add, was room temperature. When I asked the server she took it to the bartender who told her it came from the fridge like that… and asked would I like a few ice cubes. Not one mention of a special occasion nor a good table. I was very disappointed. The food however was delicious but that cannot be the only reason I return.

    Great ambiance and service. Food was mixed. Liked most of the small plates we tried. Monk fish was spicy but not all that special. Duck was uninspired. We were rushed at first with the small plates coming at overwhelming speed. So we slowed our pace considerably and at the end the service was actually too slow. No reason to come back anytime soon

    While at a new location, the cuisine and service is just as fantastic as ever. The small plates are spectacular and really all you need. The ambiance isn't as cool as their Rush St. location, but the bar area maintains a cozy, tropical vibe. Highly recommend as a special occasion place.

    It was a beautiful night in Chicago. Cool and breezy and the expandable windows were all open to the incredible fashion icon stores below. Service was impeccable. Food was tremendous as usual. We consider Le Colonial that "special occasion" spot to treat ourselves and our out of town guests when they come to visit. It's one of the delightful ways to introduce someone to the food offerings of Chicago .... and to simply say "this is our City." Couldn't be easier to get to the restaurant on time than with their valet service. All in all, just a big appreciation for such a wonderful experience.

We had shrimp spring rolls. Pho. Chicken curry. Monkfish appetizer. Shrimp on a sugar cane stick. Banana pudding dessert. Could not have been better.

    After so many wonderful years, the luster of Le Colonial seems to be fading to an inconsistent glow- and the rhythm of the experience just seems off. Appetizers moved very fast to the table which was great. So fast that they arrived the same time as our drinks. Yet, we waited quite some time on the main dishes - and my chicken curry had only two small pieces of chicken in it - it was mostly sweet potato curry. Our waiter was wonderful and so nice. And staff is kind and friendly. But longing for the 20+ experience we have consistently come back for time and again.

    We were celebrating our one month anniversary. My wife had the Signature Snapper and I had the duck. Both were good, not great. Our waiter spilled about a half of glass of water on our table. He came back to fill the glass but never wiped up the water, so we had “dinner by the river”. This was our first time at Le Colonial. Not sure we’d go back
