We each look forward to welcoming you to Oriole.
From the moment we entered absolutely everything was perfection. Service was warm and friendly. The sommelier was knowledgeable and caring. One person in my party had the nonalcoholic tea pairing which was creative, combining interesting flavors and teas. The premier wine pairings were exceptional. The tasting menu was extraordinary, every morsel was delicious a feast for the senses. it is a must for anyone who appreciates thoughtful and beautifully prepared cuisine.
Oriole was exquisite- from the welcome drink to start the evening through every one of the 15 courses the emphasis was on the exceptional food. The caviar, fois gras, wagyu and delice de Bourgogne soufflé were particular favorites. The standard wine pairing was delicious (the sake and cocktail additions a standout) and the innovative non-alcoholic pairing menu was brilliant with as much emphasis and detail paid to each drink in both taste and presentation as was offered with the wines! Service was attentive, educational and thoughtful - and dare I say it with a flourish of humor! A very much enjoyed treat worth saving up for!
It was lovely!
Excellent food and service!!!
We will be back!!
Our dinner was one of, if not the best meals we have ever had!
Best food and wine pairing I've had. If I compare it to Alinea or Grace, i thought the wine was much better and more varied. Food was excellent though presentation was not as good as Alinea (which doesn't matter to me). I loved this place.
Food just flat out incredible. Other than the uni which was probably b+ and the chocolate dessert which was meh everything was A+.
Service was outstanding.
The only difference that we noticed from say mich 2 and mich 3 places and Oriole was that they often wasn’t very descriptive about cooking and prep that goes into making these delectable bites of joy. A bit more story telling about the dish would be a game changer.
The most important aspect of this restaurant that I found was the number of women inside the kitchen cooking. Very welcome sight often under represented in major restaurants!
We will be back!
Simply put....it was amazing!!
The Best restaurant in Illinois..no contest..maybe the country...possibly the world
Love. Love. Love. A+ on all levels. Most memorable.
Oriole has a fabulous staff, with excellent service and attention to detail. We had a wonderful experience and look forward to our next visit!
Definitely the best restaurant in Chi, way better than Alinea. I have faith that this restaurant will be a three star soon.
Incredible. The best dining experience we've ever had. The service was phenomenal and every course was tastier than the last.
Truly exceptional!!! Wonderful dining experience!!!
The most amazing evening with the most exceptional service and food.
Oriole did not live up to the hype. While you can expect the portions to be tiny, it is not good to have the menu be a “surprise”. There would have been substitutions made as I did not enjoy certain dishes and since the portion is small, there isn’t much to eat. Service was overly attentive and stuffy which was annoying. Felt I was being stalked the entire meal. Ended up only enjoying a handful of dishes (if that) so not worth the money.
Oriole lived up to and exceeded all of our expectations! I was in town for a short while and my wife love to enjoy a good meal. Being from NYC we’ve been to a few good restaurants but this place has an incredible staff, food and ambiance. Highly recommend. They made our special date night one to remember.
In one word Fabulous from beginning to end! An amazing experience
Amazing experience. Oriole has thought of everything!
Sensational experience that is "special occasion" fare and price!
One of the best restaurants I've been to. Amazing food. Better than most 3 michelin star restaurants.
Wanted to go for the longest time. It was great to celebrate our anniversary there. It was exactly like what we expected- food art made possible by precise execution of tweezers. A few sauces were a bit salty for my taste. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience.
This was our second time dining at Oriole and it has blown us away both times. The ambiance is fantastic, we've never had better service at a fine dining establishment, and the menu has been perfect on both occasions.
Amazing team food and service was off the charts. the SOM when out of his way to help the evening along.
Perfect food and drink pairings. Amazing experience overall
I don’t think any part of this experience could be improved
It was quite an experience. Not for the faint of heart. Food was well thought and well crafted. Service was excellent, BUT it was all very uptight. Instead of being excited between courses, I found myself nervous and a little afraid at times. It is a small space and the number of servers was a little daunting. It was nice to be able to see into the kitchen....all chefs working with tweezers. I will not go again, but if anyone is looking for a unique - expensive- food experience, this is your place!!
An absolute symphony....from the moment you arrive at the door, til the moment you leave the experience is a work of art. My best friend and I were in town for a wedding, and her being from a small town in Georgia, but the ultimate “foodie”, I wanted her to have a dining experience she would never forget....mission accomplished. It was our first Michelin star restaurant, and we did the tasting menu with standard wine pairing....unbelievable...Thank you, Noah and to every person there❤️.
Incredible meal.....If you haven’t eaten here...SHAME ON YOU! Don’t walk....RUN and get a reservation immediately. I’m totally serious
Outstanding cool vibe
Amazing service and the most amazing meal. It was her birthday and they really made her feel special. I honestly feel that we had a better meal and experience here than at some of the 3 Star Michelin restaurants that we have dined in the past.
From start to finish this place is impressive. From host greeting to the chef coming out and adding personal congratulatory touches to our experience (we were celebrating a new job) this was so much fun. The wine pairings were spot on recommended and the food was interesting at every turn. Was it pricey, sure but that’s bc you aren’t getting an experience like this anywhere else. Top 3 meals of my lifetime.
Eating at Oriole was an amazing experience and is well worth booking. I can’t even begin to describe how delicious each dish was. Highly recommended.
A fantastic experience from the very start. Really loved it.
Run, don't walk to Oriole. Brilliant. Genius. Stellar.
Where do I begin? From the moment we stepped foot into the restaurant to the moment they saw us into a cab, hands down the best service I've ever experienced at a fine dining restaurant. I would definitely go back when I'm in Chicago.
One of the best overall dining experiences I have ever known!! Fabulous ambiance, unbelievable service and amazing food. Worth the investment!!!!
Best dining experience to date! I loved the place, the service and most importantly, the Food! I can't wait to go back again!
Second time, and would return in an instant. Fabulous! Every need was taken care of. The food and the wine pairing were fabulous. The device de bourgone shuffle was one of the best things ever ever eaten, outstanding!
Absolutely fantastic! Deserving of the third Michelin star!!!
