Ambiance Matchmaking of Chicago

Professional Matchmaking for Chicago Singles

Ambiance Matchmaking is a nationally recognized yet personal matchmaking agency with over 16 years of professional experience. Founder Leslie Wardman is one of the most experienced matchmakers in the industry. After a 20 year career in ESPN production and advertising, she was hired to run an international matchmaking company in the 1990's. However, she envisioned a more personal, hands-on matchmaking experience. She then founded Ambiance Matchmaking in 2002 and has been working with singles across the United States in accomplishing their relationship and marriage goals. 

We cater to a very diverse group of Chicago singles varying in age, career paths and life passions, yet all seeking someone with whom to share their life. Our clients come from word-of-mouth, our private matchmaking network, social events, Ambiance recruiters, and employing our very own digital search expert. All are accomplished and highly educated, with 99% having college degrees and 70% having advanced degrees. We are extremely proud of our members!

We are also proud of our partners. We work with our Chicago partner restaurants to ensure you have a great first date (and dining!) experience. All of our restaurants are chosen based on quality, friendliness, atmosphere, and location.

Year after year, Ambiance has been recognized as one of the top matchmaking agencies in the industry, earning editorials in major publications and appearances on many news channels, including ABC, KFOR, Slice Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune.
