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.

    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 lunch with the kids for my birthday. The weather was beautiful outside so all the windows were open. The Restaurant was full and hopping. Service was great. Food was great. 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

    It was a disappointing experience that my food was not cooked through. I ordered half roasted duck and it was under cooked, the meat was all pink and cannot be bite through. It is quite dangerous if duck is not cooked through. The staff offered to recook/ bring a brand new dish. Turned out the new dish is small in quantity, and overcooked. I can no longer trust the food quality at this place, not even mentioning the price tag is very high.

    We had an amazing dinner in the bar in a wonderful banquet!! Now my favorite place to sit. Everything about our dining experience was perfect. Our waiter was wonderful and helped us choose some of your interesting cocktails. We ate and shared many appetizers and entrees. We can never leave without desserts so again shared several. Le Colonial is definitely a must dining experience when anyone visits Chicago!! Thank you so much !
