Le Colonial - Chicago

Le Colonial transports guests to another time and place, vividly recapturing the beauty, romance and spirit of 1920's French-Colonial Southeast Asia. Le Colonial invigorates the senses with exquisite décor and savory authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Le Colonial offers two unique dining options: The first floor dining room is adorned with louvered shutters, woven rattan chairs, potted palms, slow-moving ceiling fans and nostalgic black and white photos of turn-of-the century life in Saigon. The upstairs lounge includes a spacious, fully stocked mahogany bar, plush couches for enjoying light fare, dining tables and a veranda, for keeping warm in winter and cool in summer. Complete with unique, delicately prepared Vietnamese cuisine, Le Colonial is the perfect setting for an after-work social or a romantic evening for two.

"The restaurant was crowded and loud to a fault. Uncomfortably loud (my wife and I couldn't have a conversation without practically yelling), and tables so tightly placed together, the servers are unable to move.
Service was slow, and unresponsive. While the food was good, it was honestly nothing to get excited over. There are far better dining experiences in Chicago."

"Always a classic. I've been dining here for twenty years. However, on our recent visit, we found the service to be lacking. We had a slow, inattentive waiter who provided little to no insight to the menu. Furthermore, when my wife expressed disappointment in her entree, he demonstrated no interest or concern. In summary, he displayed a lack of professionalism that one would expect at this establishment."

"We ate here during Chef's week. I had heard good things about it from family members who have been here. I was very pleased with the atmosphere, as we were looking for a nice quiet place for a little romance. The waiter was very personable and you could tell they got to know their regulars very well. He suggested a nice wine to pair with our dinner and we were pleased with his knowledge of the wine list. They food was very good, French style cuisine with Thia touches and ingredients. I would definitely go back and will recommend this to others as well. I'm a tour guide in the city and am always looking for good places to recommend. Not everyone meets my expectations and Le Colonial more than exceeded them."

"Always enjoy the food and service at this restaurant. We did run into an issue with the chef's menu. Since the person I was with had shrimp, lobster, cashew and pistachios allergies, there were only 4 out of 10 items that they could eat. Guess I would like to more attention to ingredients used or more options on the special menu. Or at least allow them to substitute if necessary."

"This is the first time in over two years that I have eating at Le Colonial. The ambiance and the service is quite good. Seems to be a very popular place.
The featured drinks were so-so, nothing spectacular. Although they did shake and pour at the table which was a nice touch.
Most disappointingly was the quality of the food. It was nothing special. He components and presentation was good but the food was bland and lacked characteristic freshness and flavor of quality Vietnamese food.
Maybe it was my food choices -- duck, shrimp and BBQ pork. The latter was dry and flavorless. The duck was bland to the pint of almost tasting like chicken. The shrimp was the best.
The restaurant used to be quite good. They need to step up their game."

"Le Colonial is one of our favorite places in Chicago. Food is exceptional along with the service. Whenever I am in the Windy City, I make time to enjoy a meal there !"

"This is my second time over there (Chef Week is the usually the only time we make it there) but my partner has been there several times and this is his favorite Chicago restaurant (and he manages a restaurant himself so I trust his judgement). What can I say except Bravo! these guys have perfected the art of dining and I can keep coming here over and over and I am sure I will love it everytime. First the tastefully done decor, the lighting and wall art and indoor plants et al. just gorgeous, and romantic and so visually inviting and classy! The food: so tasty! and I always think the portion sizes will be too small but not at all! they are just right! The wine: exquisite, the service: fabulous! The downside: we always end up spending way more than we want to but every penny is worth it! Only one small word of advice: when we were seated, there was a good long period of time when we just kept waiting and waiting to be waited on even though the restaurant was half empty and I felt there is some room for improvement in that area of service, otherwise no complaints!"

"Quaint, lovely and a special place.
The menu is very good and what you order is exactly what you get. Fresh herbs, delicate spices and good, but not overwhelming portions.
We ordered the shrimp nests, wrapped over sugar cane...yum!! Beef spring rolls...delicate and delicious! Bouillabaisse was lovely, saffron, spice and ample fish, lobster, shrimp & mussels.
Only complaint may be the pork dish had very little pork, mostly cabbage. That did not deter our experience. We will return. Our waiter was accommodating, enthusiastic and helpful.
The drinks are excellent as well!

"The boullabaise and the crispy red snapper in sweet chili sauce, as well as the appetizers were excellent.
The service and ambiance, give it 5 stars.
The seafood offered is very fresh.
We have been going back to this restaurant for the past 15 years and always had great meals
