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.

    We are regulars at LC but our experience yesterday was horrible. A table of VERY loud people who shouted constantly. Management would do nothing about it. The party should have been cut off from more alcohol and asked to leave the restaurant.

    We enjoy everything about this restaurant. The food is authentic Vietnamese in a high end setting with great service. Servicing dishes are cleared as soon as they are empty as are used plates. Jewel was our server and she did an incredible job at anticipating our needs while never interrupting our conversation or leaving us looking for help. A wonderful experience overall.

    Le Colonial was an outstanding restaurant There were five of us who went for dinner. Our waiter was knowledgeable and accommodated all of our different requests. The food was absolutely delicious. We shared lots of small plates so we could sample various dishes. All were excellent. Would love to go back again.

    Energetic? How about earsplittingly loud? Our ears were ringing after dinner. Our dinner was tasty but spending almost $200 for a modest amount of food and drink, and having to almost scream across a small table to be heard did not make us want to return.

    Love the place by the patio but the chair is uncomfortable, the table too small for 4, NO PLACE to lay a purse or hang otherwise because the chair shape is kind of circular. You have to put your purse on the floor or on your lap. They have to consider that all women carry a purse.
