Oriole
Oriole

$$$$
Contemporary American | West Loop, Chicago

Wow! Oriole is a special place. Best meal that our family had in any restaurant in 2019. All of us agreed that every dish served was amazing. Since it's a tasting menu, it's at a pretty high price point, so we'll only go there on special occasions... but our family will definitely be back. Thank you to all the staff for making my wife's birthday memorable for years to come. More

Mediterranean | West Loop, Chicago

This has quickly become my FAVORITE restaurant in Chicago and maybe my favorite restaurant ever. The menu is constantly updating to meet the seasonal palate but not in a way that's so obvious and overpowering to the natural flavor of the food. The staff is incredible. INCREDIBLE. They are helpful with the menu, they take great care of their guests, and they are truly thoughtful. Even down to the napkin placement (I left to use the restroom and I came back and had a fresh linen napkin waiting for me), the table wiping (they clean if you spill or ask), and the plate replacement - the staff ANTICIPATES your needs. They are ON IT. This last time, we dined with Jess - she paid attention to our needs, provided excellent recommendations, and really made our last date night before our baby arrives something to remember. I'm so lucky to live just a few blocks away and I can't wait to visit again soon! More

A gastronomic feast! I had the Tasting Menu with the wine pairing while my friend had the Vegetarian Tasting Menu (which is a nice option). Both were incredibly well prepared, with just the right blend of flavors. Each course was beautifully presented as well. The wine pairings were excellent, not too heavy and perfect for each corse. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. I must say that the food, service, and pairings were equal to or better than those of a 3 Star restaurant which we recently attended in Chicago. Eden is definitely one of my top picks for restaurants. More

We were going to a concert and decided to try something new! So happy that we did, this little gem was amazing! We had the nicest waiter who was very knowledgeable and attentive and the GM even stopped by our table to say hello and welcomed us. We loved the extra little shots of limoncello and the cannolis too! The pizzas were so yummy coming out of the oven and the salad was super fresh and it had the perfect amount of dressing. This restaurant should not be missed!! Thank you for the wonderful evening! More

So sad this place is closing—what an indictment of the more generic restaurant scene around it. The West Loop/Fulton Market área continues to get less and less interesting, and the loss of La Sirena to high rents is a shame. More

I loved this restaurant. The flavors of all the dishes were amazing. The "small plates" weren't too small for the two of us. We ordered 5 or 6 things and felt the prices were moderate. We did have several drinks (it was my birthday!) so the price went up. But this was one of the best restaurants we've been to. More

Saigon Sisters was a great dining experience. Appetizers, Main courses and desserts are all authentic and made with fresh ingredients. Service makes you feel at home and so welcomed. I'd particularly recommend the fish(deboned and served in a great broth/sauce) and the beef dishes. The homemade desserts, especially the bread pudding(sauce out of this world) was A+. Overall, highly recommended....we'll be back. Plenty of reasonable on street parking ,at the lake Street location, used with our Parking app. More

Ricardo’s is the best Italian, if not the the best food overall in the west loop. Ricardo’s has several restaurants in Chicago — all are fabulous gourmet quality & authentic. The ravioli made with sage butter and ricotta/spinach is exceptional. The pastas are homemade. The appetizer of calamari was delicate and yummy. The rice balls fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner. Make reservations. More

Food was exquisite, wait staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere was something out of a 1950's Hollywood glamour film. I had the Cacio e pepe which was divine, better than some of the authentic dishes I tried in Italy. My friend got the salmon and it was delicious as well. Wednesday's they do seafood towers for $75! For those white sweet wine drinkers out there, we tried a bottle of Cascinetta Vietti moscato and it was out of this world. Our waiter was kind enough to bring out this insanely delicious waffle with caramelized bananas and ice cream for dessert. It was just simply divine. Absolutely recommend. More

Wonderful experience. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. We ordered steaks. They took a while to come out. We were not upset about it but they were. They brought out homemade bread and butter and said they were sorry it was taking so long. When the steaks arrived they brought us potatoes, but we had ordered the Brussel sprouts. Again they apologized and 5 minutes later they appeared. They didn’t charge us for either. This is a restaurant that cares about its customers and reputation. Great food, great service and a very attractive space. What more could you want. More
