Le Ono serves French Polynesian cuisine and great cocktails in O’Fallon, Illinois

The menu at this upscale French Polynesian restaurant rotates frequently, but we’re confident you’ll find something you love. 

Start your meal with a craft cocktail such as the Le Ono Mai Tai, a delightful tipple made with Don Q Gold rum, orgeat, Aperol, pineapple and lemon juices, topped with a heavy dollop of mango foam. 

The Le Ono pork bao is an ideal small plate, with a fluffy, housemade bao bun, a spicy-sweet, gochujang-based Korean sauce, ginger-scallion oil and pickled onion. The Valbreso and tomato confit was divine, with a rich and creamy whipped French feta redolent of burrata served alongside grilled baguette slices and tomato-garlic confit drizzled with herb oil. The pan-roasted chicken breast was also delicious, served with mashed potatoes, baby carrots, jus, chive oil and herbs.
