Please keep in mind that proper attire is required including a jacket for gentlemen.
Spectacular experience. One of the last of the grand French restaurants. Extensive menu, well trained and unobtrusive servers and all around civilized dining experience.
Les Nomades is one of the best restaurants in the city for a romantic/quiet dinner. The food is awesome with a wide range of choices of outstanding quality from new inventive and tasty presentations to flawless delivery of old favorites such as desert soufflé's.
The only aspect better than the menu is the service. Attentive, informed and friendly staff enhanced the dining experience.
Exceptional service! Excellent food, well presented.
We have been going to Les Nomades for years and it is still fabulous! This meal may have been our best experience yet. It is certainly for special nights only as the price tag is hefty--but so worth it!
Exquisite food. It is pricey but well worth it to enjoy the creative courses. Prix fixe or order separate as I did, too much food if you don’t eat a lot. Modern menu. Ambiance was quiet and intimate for our date night
A great restaurant. Excellent food. The four course pre fixe menu is actually a bargain given the quality and quantity of the food. Service is impeccable. The meal was perfectly paced. This my wife's favorite Chicago restaurant.
Food was excellent, great service. We loved it.
The food and service was amazing. The pace of the meal is important to my wife and I. If we are going to spend $500 on dinner it should be an longer experience and they were perfect. Cute wood burning fire place. Staff was friendly and charming but not over the top. If in Chicago again I would go back!
Les Nomades has long been one of our favourite restaurants to celebrate special occasions. The food is exquisite, the service impeccable, the atmosphere elegant. It is expensive, but justifiably so. We love it and will return.
Timeless elegance and graciousness permeate the atmosphere at Les Nomades. From the warm greeting to the expert service to the impressive menu and exquisite preparations, this restaurant delivers on its promise. The wine list is especially noteworthy. Priced for special occasions, or those with large expense accounts, Les Nomades is nonetheless a true jewel and well worth it.
The food is superb, with a marvelous wine list, making Les Nomades the destination each year for our anniversary. A little slice of Paris in Chicago. Unfortunately the service and ambiance have deteriorated to the point where we will consider other options next year.
We had such a special evening. The restaurant was elegant with beautiful flower arrangements. The waitstaff was perfect. Very importantly, we could talk to each other and hear what was being said. The food was especially delicious as were the choices. It was elegant in every way and a real treat to be there.
Outstanding, as always and in all respects. Another great reason to visit Chicago.
great food and service — my favorites were the wild mushroom soup and tenderloin special. we’ll be back!
One of the best restaurants in Chicago. Located in a previous house, Les Nomades is a real gem. You don't feel like being in a restaurant, rather in a dining room. The set menu offers multiple choices for everybody. Delicate prepared French dishes, modern style. Impressive winelist
Fantastic birthday meal. We love this special place in the heart of the city
The best in Chicago... Exquisite menu, fabulous food, romantic rooms, charming hospitality accessible and FUN. There are good reasons this has been an institution for decades!
Food and service was great
Unfourtanetly there was a table with very loud people and made the experience very negative
I had forgotten how much I missed French cuisine. Absolutely stunning on all fronts.
Wonderful night. Perfect for celebrating or an intimate date.
Delicious, creative courses.
Truly an exceptional experience. We were on a business trip for our company and chose the restaurant for its location and reviews. What a find!!!! From the moment we entered we were greeted as special clients , we felt so welcome. The decor was perfect and food was outstanding. Their wine choices were brilliant and they helped us pair with our food impeccably. We look forward to traveling to Chicago again to make another trip here.
Every time we travel to Chicago, we a point to dine at this wonderful restaurant
Wonderful old school and very elegant French dining. Prices are high but worth the cost.
38th wedding Anniversary came on October 25, 2018
They returned again because of not just good, but great space and overwhelming great food for their palate.
Rochelle L has a 4 course dining experience, and Leonard E. added an additional course.
Each course left both of them wanting that to be a full meal... Yes, keep that course coming..
Hawaiian Ahi tuna tart, parmesan za’atar sable, confit tomato, zucchini, green beans, saffron sauce.
The favors were transferred with each bit. The Hawaiian Ali Tuna melted in your mouth, asking for one more piece.
Rochelle's Escargots, yellow tomato coulis, Roquefort cheese was enjoyed one snail at a time. The sauce the was surrounding the snails was supped up one by one, sometime accompanied by a crust of french bread.
The size of Rochelle Grilled Scottish Salmon, wild rice, cucumber and beet salad, eggless béarnaise was much larger then
Leonard's salmon in the previous course..
Leonard's Roasted duck breast and confit duck leg, Savoy cabbage, truffle corn purée, sauce Rouennaise.... make you him want more and just more ......
Grilled romaine, warm goat cheese salad, pomegranate, Honeycrisp apple, balsamic Caesar dressing was Leonard's 5th course.
One salad was teaser. They has to move on.
The service was well appointed for the evening and water glasses were never empty until the end....
Rochelle L. was well please with the selection for their anniversary....
Leonard E commented doing and after dining for 3-1/2 hours, they had not a care in the world.
The most classy, authentic French restaurant in Chicago. In an old townhouse in Streeterville. A Chicago gem for 40 years! Gentlemen must wear coats, although most choose a very nice suit. You will see absolutely no cell phones, or digital devices out on the tables. An oasis in a sea of loud restaurants.
The excellent food is matched with an exceptional wine list. Creative and competent cooking without any science experiments. A great escape from the ordinary, seems to be one of the last civilized restaurants around.
A dining experience
This is a poor choice if you are a vegetarian or pescetarian, as the menu is a $130 prix fixe, there are no veg entrées, and some of the fish options also contain meat. My boyfriend ordered the duck, which he said was the best duck entrée he had ever had, so I was sad to admit that I was barely choking down my Dover sole with brown butter and capers. The delicate fish had been accompanied by two meaty asparagus spears and a sauce that tasted like beef bullion cubes mixed with capers and soy sauce on top of a little pile of quinoa. The saltiness was overwhelming and the sauce was odorous. I lost my appetite for the dessert, an excellent lemon soufflé. Any type of water you choose there is bottled, and results in a $10 charge. The ambiance is lovely, but a party of six was having very loud conversation in that room, completely overpowering our dinner date for two.
Les Nomades exceeded our expectations of a culinary masterpiece! Brought me back to La Francais and Charlie Trotters in terms of meticulous attention to detail. The prix fix dinner at $145 was a great value, and the service was 5 star in every way. Highly recommend!!
The evening at this restaurant was truly transporting. It compared well in every way to world-class restaurants in Europe. Ambience was quiet, reserved, and elegant. Service was attentive and professional. The menu was innovative and beautifully presented, with ample portion sizes. Wine list offered a good range of choices. Finally, although all tasting menus at gastronomic restaurants tend to be expensive, this one was not over the top and was well worth the price.
Wonderful as always
This restaurant offers a magnificent dining experience like no other in the Midwest. Worth the drive and the wait to reserve a table. Call ahead for special requests.
