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 decor and savory authentic Vietnamese cuisine. 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, 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.
Some may wonder why spend so much money for Vietnamese food when you can just go to Argyle for cheap and authentic stuff. But dining at Le Colonial is more than just food. It is also about ambience. Walking through the doors you are immediately transported to Vietnam, to a time when the French still ruled the country. It reminds me of the plantation house in the movie 'Apocalypse Now'. There is seating on the second floor by the balcony, which is the best spot for a romantic occassion.
Was at Le Colonial for an evening dinner, wonderful time. This was the second time I ate here, the first time was upstairs. The upstairs experience was nice, but it was very dark and I really didn't get the same impression/experience as I did this time. On Saturday I ate downstairs, felt like a different place from my first time. At any rate, the service was great. They were running late on tables when I arrived but the free app's while we waited in the bar was a great touch. Even got another free app once we were seated! The food was fantastic, a very unique experience. I liked it again, will return soon.
I absolutely loved the restuarant! I was seated in the second floor. The place is classy, very intimate and food is excellent! Great ambient, elegant and stylish interior, lounge music is not too loud. Excellent service. Great place for a date! Loved it!
First timer. French-Vietnamese dishes were excellent and I am in the restaurant business so my expectations are always high. Ambiance is old French colonial and much like I find in Asia. The best thing, I simply stated it was a special occasion and if available, a nice table would be nice. The hostess on 23 Aug met my wish, checked in with us periodically, made us feel special. And gave us a small care package when we left. The wait staff was professioanl and attentive to every table. I will return and with friends.
