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 décor 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.

"I took a business associate who used to live in Chicago to Le Colonial. She said that she had always wanted to try this restaurant, but for some reason never was able to dine here. Not only was she blown away with the food, she said that the ambience was one of the best in Chicago. This is a favorite restaurant of mine, so we both ended up very happy with our experience. Highly recommend Le Colonial to anyone who wants a unique dining experience!"

Three-star rated by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Magazine with TWO star prices. Restaurant Michael has private dining facilities for up to 100 guests. We can cater to many types of events be they business functions or any festive celebration.

"Food and wine was really good. Service was attentive and consistent. I thought the ambiance in the room with the fireplace was a little dated compared to the main room, but was a lot quieter. Really nice overall experience."
