What Insiders Are Saying
Oriole is a fancy and expensive tasting menu restaurant that’s great for a special occasion.
Outstanding creative food presented in a sublime fashion. This was our wedding celebration and the experience did not disappoint.
Exceeded all expectations. I don't typically walk away impressed with Prix fixe menus but I was blown away by Oriole.
This was truly one of the best meals I’ve had in Chicago. The service was thorough, prompt and elevated without feeling pretentious or stuffy. Every course was incredible and the wine pairings were perfectly curated. Dinner at Oriole was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary and I haven’t been able to stop talking about it.
The experience was perfect. Service was flawless. The food, as always was innovative and artfully presented. The flavors were complex and refreshing at the same time. For Summer it was a light and delicate menu that allowed you to experience of the ingredients at there perfect moment of ripeness. It was joyous to see such refinement.
We have been to Oriole on a number of occasions, but I think this was our best experience. Every course was delicious, with a very Japanese focus. The standard wine pairing was well executed with interesting wines and great pairings. Service is over the top and the chef came out to do our truffles for the pasta course. It was a memorable evening and we look forward to our next visit
My favorite tasting menu in Chicago! Beautiful contemporary space. Understated sophistication!
We came to Chicago for the weekend. We dined at a one Michelin star restaurant, a three Michelin star restaurant and another highly recommended restaurant, as well as at Oriole. Oriole was by far the best environment, best food and best service of all four restaurants.
Phenomenal inventive cuisine both gastronomically and esthetically. Service was 5 star throughout every phase of the evening from each and every individual who interacts with you. Very personalized experience without being unctious. Setting is cool, industrial, romantic with a touch of “James Bond” as well. No menu to contend with, all dietary restrictions, allergies, and preferences are taken into account prior to arriving. Dont miss the wine pairing as it elevates the entire evening to a level that not many restaurants can even come close to. They truly deserve their Michellin star ranking.
Outstanding as always!
A gastroorgasmic experience. Best part of my Chicago trip and there is a lot to love. Will certainly return. The staff is incredibly attentive, educated and caring. It’s is magic dining at Oriole.
This restaurant was wonderful! The food, wine, & service were stellar, & I would look forward to going back again!
Every thing about the experience was positive. The staff was engaging without being hovering. The pacing was about perfect. Just enough time between courses to talk over the dish and the wines.
Fabulous food and exceptional ambiance. Presentation is outstanding
One of the best meals and dining experiences I have ever had.
The entire experience was first class from beginning to end!
This is a Michelin starred restaurant for a reason. The food was simply incredible, once-in-a-lifetime kind kind of experience. Sure, it's $$$$ - but it was a memory I'll never forget. The hostess, waiters/waitresses, and chefs are warm, welcoming, and engaging. I wish I could go back and do it all over again.
Best food in the country right now! Amazingly creative yet truly satisfying and balanced.
Remarkable presentation, and wonderful range of
flavors and textures. The wines complemented the
foods well, but after ~13 courses a bit of blurring
may have transpired. Certainly a meal that will
never be forgotten, even if the memory becomes
Perfect post-engagement late night dinner
Hands down the most amazing food experience in my life. The service was just superb. They were friendly ,professional, and super observant. They noticed I was left handed and served me from the left. The food and wine were exceptional. Definitely with the money and wait !
Took my 19-year-old son for his first Michelin-starred dining experience. He loved the tasting menu, but it was even more fun for me to see his reaction to all the inventive non-alcoholic drink pairings. We enjoyed almost every dish. I wasn’t a fan of the English pea savory dessert, but the rest of the courses were amazing in taste and presentation.
The best restaurant in Chicago. Food and service are outstanding.
Unbelievable and delicious experience from beginning to end! Hats off to Chef Sandoval and his team!
Clearly has earned its two Michelin stars. Amazing meal, service, and experience. A must-do if you wish to eat at one of the best restaurants in the city. Loved it!
Outstanding tasting menu in a beautiful space with outstanding service. The wine pairings were perfect. Very expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Every single dish was delicious and we were especially impressed with the desserts, the pastry chef does a great job. Highly recommended, I would go back
service was great. Food was a bit salty IMO, but overall a good experience. Wine pairing was very good.
The staff at Oriole made our 18 yr anniversary so memorable with their amazing food, service, and thoughtfulness. Oriole is in the top 5 meals I have ever had in my life. It’s worth every penny for their set menu and they call you ahead of time to make sure they account for anything you dislike so you don’t have to worry about it.
Lives up to the hype, beautiful, thoughtful, and gracious hospitality. Definitely one of the best in Chicago.
This was a totally delightful experience. My family and I took Chicago on for a food journey Thursday thru Friday night. Without a doubt this was our high point. All the staff worked in perfect harmony with the greatest attention to details. Every morsel from the tasting menu was spectacular, it would be unfair to judge them against each other. Perfect sushi starter, a foie gras mouse with candied fresh blueberries was transcending. The langoustine followed by sable fish surpassed my hopes and expectations, they were insane. Then it continued. I had 2 wines picked for us and they were well priced and complimented the food admirably. This place is fantastic and greatly surpassed our meal at a very famous place the night before. Thanks guys, a magnificent show, we will be back as often as possible
Everything about Oriole was exceptional. The service was awesome - the staff are friendly and knowledgeable and not at all stuffy. We laughed with the servers repeatedly, they really make you feel comfortable and welcome. The food is absolutely incredible - we’ve eaten at 3-Michelin star restaurants and Oriole was as innovative and flawless as any of them. I would not be surprised if they got a third star soon. Oriole is less about the “show” like a lot of top spots, and instead focus on every last detail of their dishes. Absolutely phenomenal experience. Thank you for such a wonderful evening!
Absolutely worth every penny
Great atmosphere and service along with excellent food and wine.
Amazing experience with exceptional food!
For a truly superb culinary experience in Chicago, look no further. Oriole hits all the targets with respect to food, service, and ambiance. I have not had a finer meal anywhere else--for me, Oriole is at least tied with 3-4 other restaurants (like Joel Robuchon in Vegas, the now-defunct Grace in Chicago, and a couple others) for the best meal of all time. The uniqueness of the flavors was striking--this meal granted more new flavors than any other meal I've ever had. We had a non-alcoholic drink pairing, which was outstanding and complemented the meal beautifully without the taste-altering properties of alcohol. The service was phenomenal--quietly efficient, informative without being wordy, seamless, perhaps the best I've ever experienced.
About the only star I could remove would be for value--the meal was very expensive even without alcohol. Nevertheless, for a meal you'll probably have at most once a year, Oriole is still well worth the price.
A place full of wonderful surprises. From de entrance of the restaurant (the uber driver didn’t believe us when we told him there was a restaurant at this address), the welcome drink, to the attention to every little detail during our meal. The food was unbelievable and the experience even better.
Creative menu and superb service. Perfect for special occasions.
Nice atmosphere and amazing world-class food! They had 14 courses and there wasn't a single one of them that we didn't LOVE!
