    We have been going to Le Colonial for our Wedding Anniversary celebration dinner for several years until COVID-19. This is our first time back and also in Le Colonial’s newest location on Oak Street. We had a wonderful meal, excellent service, and met a wonderful young couple seated next to us who were celebrating a 30 birthday. We look forward to returning again soon.

    What a wonderful experience from the greeting to dessert. We started with Aperol Spritz’s which were delish. First course was a chicken, cabbage slaw salad with heat - huge and wonderful. Chicken and pork egg rolls were tremendous. The dipping sauce added to them Next garlic noodles which were buttery and tasty. We finished with chocolate lava cake flambés with rum and coffee. We had a great waiter that timed everything and gave us good advice about food. This is a foodie’s delight

    El lugar muy bonito y ambiente agradable. Buena comida pero deben advertir el nivel de picante de la comida en el menú antes de ordenar porque habemos muchas personas que no podemos comer picante…Mejoraría en la atención que fue un poco demorada y despistada, mucha demora entre la entrada y el plato fuerte y también nos dejaron los platos sucios mucho tiempo después de comer hasta que hice varios intentos en llamar a alguien que los recogiera vino alguien.

    9.5/10! The hosts were wonderful and very accommodating. The food was outstanding per usual. My only complaint would be our waiter, he wasn’t very attentive and this was frustrating as we wanted to order more. The rest of the experience made up from the service but as always a wonderful dining experience.

    While the food is pretty great, the staff needs desperate training. Most servers kept talking to each other in between tables about personal matters, we didn’t get any recommendations from the server or even an introduction. We waited for a while to get our order taken and when we did it was only a smidge nicer than “you ready?”. It’s my third time here and it was such a bummer in comparison to other times.

    I hosted a luncheon for six at Le Colonial and everything about the experience was exceptional, as it was for my guests. Everyone was gracious and attentive. The menu is exquisite, the food was amazing, the service was superb and the attention to detail - from the staging of the table to the timing and presentation of the selections - was perfect. Rave reviews and comments from everyone in our party. We extend our appreciation to all at Le Colonial - front and backstage - who each contributed to our delight and fond memories.
