A haven of quiet elegance near the Navy Pier and Lake Michigan. Within walking distance of many hotels, from Marriott to Starwood to Hyatt to Hilton.

Champagne offered on arrival

Extensive wine list. Small portions with concentrated flavors. Fresh garnishes with flavor complement main ingredients

Staff attentive while encouraging a leisurely experience. Early seating allows a 3 rather than 4/5 course experience.

Wild mushroom soup and fresh halibut were complemented with fresh fruit plate as dessert.

A classic venue coming back after a few years of less attentive management

We made reservations here on the advice of a friend. I was reluctant because of the price. But the flavors were out of this world. The Mushroom Soup was incredible. The tenderloin beef was so tender and delicious, my friend swears you don't even need teeth to chew it! Don was our server with great recommendations. A meal to remember for a long time to come.

A delightful French restaurant featuring haute cuisine with modern twists. Fresh ingredients and excellent vegetable pairings. Wagyu short ribs and soufflé selection are MUST orders. Service is personable and unobtrusive. They punch way above their weight class. Pricey, but far less pretentious than many of its Chicago competitors. It’s all about the diner here, with one of the owners in the front of the house to welcome you as if you’re a guest in her home. Highly recommend.

Loved Les Nomades ( pronounced Lee Nomaade, meaning The Nomads ) in every aspect.The service was impeccable, The server was very attentive, yet not intrusive and asked us if we wanted to change the seat as we had noisy neighbors but we were fine. He helped us chose the various options from the set menu and his recommendations were perfect. The slow roasted veal and lamb duo were amazing as were the duck while the souffles are among the best. They have a good collection of Chablis and other French Wine. Would love to go here again!!!
