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.

    Had the pleasure of dining last night and even though we had a reservation with a lovely table awaiting, we were having such an enjoyable experience sitting at the bar we decided to simply dine at the bar. Mel was tending bar last night and we let her order our entire meal from appetizers to entree's. We literally had no idea what we were going to have until it was placed in front of us and let's just say everything was unique & utterly delicious, and of course Mel was an absolute delight...Cannot wait to return!

    Come here for food, especially the fantastic red snapper fry. While their cuisine shows dependable quality(always) and unforgettable taste(often), service and ambiance are something very unique and pleasant in this restaurant. I can trust I would have a good meal and an excellent hospitality whenever I visit here.

    Several years back, Le Colonial became our favorite spot to celebrate our anniversary or other special occasions. Our server made perfect recommendations where we asked for them, and she knew the menu intimately; thus, we enjoyed everything we had, from the mushroom ravioli appetizer to a lemon panna cotta for a dessert. My wife had a spicy shrimp curry with ideal heat, and my spicy chicken stir fry did likewise. Over the years, we have never been disappointed with any dish that we chose or a server recommended. For a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was full, testament to the following this place has. Had our daughter not had a destination wedding, we would have had a rehearsal dinner or wedding reception there.

    We hadn't been to Le Colonial in years and decided to go there for Father's Day. It was so much fun and the food was really top notch. The service was great and we arrived wearing masks, so the staff seated us away from others and gave us a masked server. That was really very considerate and made us feel comfortable and safe during yet another covid surge.

    Service was slow and inattentive. We had to send the chicken curry back since it was bland. The mushroom ravioli appetizer had no taste of mushroom. The ambience was nice but the service and food were not up to our standards.
