Diner Reviews
  • "Food was excellent - while recognizable everything had a unique aspect to it that was a surprise. Fried artichokes, corn risotto, pork belly wrapped in pork shoulder, all familiar but pleasantly different and super fresh. This is small plate mediterranean food. All the plates we ordered were perfect for splitting among 4 people. The bill came to about $55 per person. We ordered 6 or 7 dishes, several cocktails each, and dessert. We were all comfortably full and pleasantly buzzed. And we left every plate totally clean. The patio is lovely and complete with a greenhouse. The husband and wife chef team source most of their produce from their own farm!"

  • "Have never had a less than terrific meal at Autre Monde, and the service is always equal to the food. A go to spot if you're in the western suburbs and not up for the trek downtown--every bit as good as it's West Loop counterparts."

  • "Outdoor patio is quiet and laid back. Great small plates to share"

  • "Autre Monde is a favorite of ours, but had never been there for brunch. Eating outside is what we prefer to do and even on a warm day the shade provided by trellises and greenery keeps it cool and there is often a breeze. The service is always outstanding with prompt service and personable and friendly wait staff that know how to be attentive without being intrusive. Brunch itself was also very good with a number of different options. There were four of us and we each had a different dish with a variety of flavors and rich qualities. The trouble is deciding which option to select. While excellent, we still prefer dinner at Autre Monde because of the combined ambience at night and terrific food options. Nonetheless, two thumbs up!"

  • "Autre Monde is consistently interesting and excellent with locally sourced ingredients and attentive service. The combination of small and large plates makes it easy to taste interesting seasonal creations of the Chef. The outdoor (but covered) patio in the back of the building is a welcome escape even in rainy or somewhat chilly weather. Autre Monde has become a "go to" spot -- a real gem in the western suburbs."

  • "This is the second time we have dined at Autre Monde since we moved here 10 days ago. We love the unusual and delicious Mediterranean selections and the mixologist makes incredible classic and modern cocktails."

  • "My friend and I came across Autre Monde by chance, during a Google search of restaurants in the neighborhod of Fitzgerald's in Berwyn. I have written only a few reviews in my life, but am happy to write one for this place. We shared five different small plates, each better than the last. Honestly, one of the most delicious, inventive menus I've ever seen. The drink list was excellent, and everything about this restaurant, from decor, to service, and most especially the food, were top notch. We went on a Tuesday night, so it wasn't crowded and street parking was a breeze. This place is special. Do not hesitate to try it. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We've been to Autre Monde a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is fabulous, fresh and creatively prepared. We were with a few other couples and shared several small and large plates. Everyone raved about each dish. Allie waited on us and was very attentive and knew a lot about the wine list! We were seated in the patio which provided a great place for us to be able to talk and hear each other. Highly recommend this for a special occasion, or any time where really good Mediterranean food & wine is desired."

  • "Since no one in our party spoke French, deciphering the menu was tricky. We had to ask a couple of questions about the menu and the waitress answered politely, but we wished the menu had better descriptions of each item so we could fully understand the menu without monopolizing the waitress' time. We didn't have to wait long for our food and everything was served hot and perfectly cooked. My son ordered the side of bacon steak which comes in 3 extra thick slices, steak is a better description for the size and the flavor was pure bacon. All of the items we ordered were amazing in their own way. We ordered 4 different selections and they were all perfectly prepared. I don't think you can go wrong on the brunch menu."

  • "Dining out is one of my favorite activities and Autre Monde is one of the most delicious restaurants in Chicagoland. The menu changes based on the seasons -They don't buy it if it isn't fresh. The selections are so varied-Even the choosiest diner will find they have just eaten the best meal they have ever had-I know, because I brought my pickiest friend and she can't wait to go back. The service is the best anywhere. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet hip. You feel very cool and with it just being in the place. I don't know how they do it, but I never want them to stop."

  • "3rd visit. 1st toooooo noisy, I think they fixed that in the front dining room. 2nd adorable outdoor, uncomfotable seating, food good, split trout. Most recent with my son, so excellent companion. Sweet server, Liz .....food, not good. Lamb kabob, passable, mussels, scrawny, unappealable sauce, not a broth. Gnocchi only thing good, snapper disgusting, inedible. Pricey, won't go back....over rated"

  • "The chicken and pancakes were an excellent combination that was almost ruined by the lack of service at Autre Monde. There was only one waitress for the entire place, but the place was pretty empty. The brunch fare we ordered is pretty standard, so it really should not take 40-45 minutes to make pancakes or French toast (either have more staff available or get your act together, especially since I know the quality of food is there)."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The meals are definitely served "tapa-esque" with everyone sharing. Food is made to order, so while you have to wait a little while, the wait is definitely worth it. The special for the day included an heirloom tomato & mozzarella cheese salad that was to die for, as was the hummus and the spicy shrimp served on a skewer. Homemade pasta with seafood was another winner. The four of us shared a blueberry cobbler dessert which was a perfect end to the meal. $60 per person, including two drinks each, which was not bad for a Saturday evening. My only complaint is that the seats were uncomfortable. Service was excellent, and though we were there on a Saturday night, we never felt rushed. I would definitely recommend Autre Monde."

  • "Great time on the patio and sampling the new menu items --duck sausage gnocchi and scallop tagliatelle! Grilled octopus is always the bomb!!! Thanks for another great meal"

  • "My wife and I found Autre Monde when it first opened. Since then we have returned with new friends each time. It's a chic, small plate restaurant that you would expect to find in the city (not Berwyn). They recently opened a patio, and since it was a perfect summer evening, we asked to sit there this time - nice addition. The food was still as great as ever. We look forward to returning periodically with new friends."

  • "Best meal I've had in a year: locally produced (just down the block) heirloom tomato and nasturtium salad w/Manchego; Idaho brook trout w/Marcona almonds in bearnaise sauce."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Autre Monde is one of our favorite restaurants in Chicagoland and it is so nice to have a restaurant of this caliber in our neighborhood! The menu is local, generally sustainable, and always delicious. The menu also changes regularly with good specials and so that's why we can go back every week! John and Christine run a tight ship and the service is wonderful with a great and friendly staff. Highly recommend Autre Monde. The only caveat is that the indoor dining room can get loud when busy."

  • "Great place for foodies. There was never a dish we were disappointed with. Menu changes so even though we come there a few times a year we find it always interesting to try new dishes."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I've enjoyed many meals here, but this was my 1st brunch and it did not disappoint! I tried everyone's dish and each was great. The only bummer was we sat outside and as it started to warm up we grew very uncomfortable. There is no air circulation outside as it is covered and there are no openings or windows and several little gnats swarmed the table. Wish the outside was more airy gazebo than closed tent. Otherwise it was lovely. The food, coffee, drinks, and service left us excited to come back!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We had a groupon for brunch, so at least we didn't pay full price. The food was fine, but not spectacular for what the prices on the menu were. The ambience is lacking...the restaurant is very bare and not very romantic. We were seated in between two big groups of people, so we had lots of talking on both sides. I've heard people say it's a must, especially for foodies, which I guess it is, but maybe not for brunch. It didn't seem that original."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Wonderful venue, great menu, fantastic service (thank you, Liz!). Enjoyed ourselves immensely. Blood orange gimlets are a knockout. Don't be "scared" of the gin; the OJ makes it a sweet experience. We used a Groupon and were not shunned or ignored because of that, which sometimes happens. The breakfast meat pie was savory and delicious, the french toast brioche amazing. I had the chicken and chestnut pancakes with homemade syrup: awesome. Thank you, Autre Monde."

  • "The wait staff was super friendly, relaxed and helpful. This is where you want to go for really good food without the pretension that comes with a lot of higher end places. The food was superb."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We love Autre Monde for a rendezvous with our friends living in the wester suburbs but winter or summer, the restaurant needs to fix the temperature control. Every time we dine we are HOT! There is no air circulation - the only fan is over the bar. Please add some ceiling fans to improve air movement in the restaurant. We arrived at 7 and the temperature was OK, but by 8 when the room is filled with people it is just too warm and makes dining really unpleasant."

  • "I had a great experience at dinner and enjoyed sharing the small plates. They create food that is simple but enhances the natural flavor and freshness of each ingredient. I'm a vegetarian and there was plenty to choose from and enjoy. The cocktail list was creative and delisious."

  • "Inventive cuisine and well executed dishes and drinks. Great indoor decor and vibe. Outdoor space is lacking both, however. Choose indoors when making your reservations."

  • "We loved everything about the food and drinks we had at Autre Monde. The Med Mule and Blood Orange Gimlet were amazing. Highly recommend the octopus, hummus and homemade pita and the blue fish special. The only thing that did suit us was the restaurant set-up. The tables are very close together and the noise level is very high, so high that sometimes it is almost impossible to hear. Think it would be better if we were with larger group at table vs on bench of small tables along wall. I still highly recommend Autre Monde, just be prepared for that will not be intimate conversation filled dinner."

  • "We were not impressed with this restaurant. Went there for Sunday brunch, and although the food was good, it was not exceptional as we had expected. The cocktails were overpriced and the service was mediocre. When you spend $75 for brunch for 2, you expect a little more."

  • "I've now been there twice with my sweetheart, who had been raving about it. The food is exquisite....truly a gem that stands out in this town."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Mediterranean, lebanese-influenced delicious food. Small plates are particularly spectacular. The grilled octopus and piri-piri mussles are fantastic. All pintxo choices are winners. When ordering, you should stagger 2 plates at a time for better timing. The wine list is ample, Balkan and Lebanese wines are available, affordable and good choices."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Food was good as usual, but we had an early reservation and they sat us right next to another couple, when 90% of the rest of the restaurant was empty. So it was very quiet and a bit uncomfortable."

  • "I don't tire off this place! We had the fontina flatbread, veg a la plan cha and pork belly accompanied by the ravioli. I couldn't fin anything to critize. The drinks were superb as well and we tried a new gin - nil let's that was great! Another great evening. I just wish the noise level was more manageable."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I love the food - I've never had a bad meal there. It is noisy so be prepared for that. Also, the drinks are a little on the pricy side and you will not get the desired pour in your glass of wine or mixed drink. It has always been like this and I hope one day it will change."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Autre Monde never disappoints. Outstanding Mediterreanean cuisine! This time I had the wood grilled octopus and it was perfectly cooked. I also had the Iowa Rainbow Trout and it was excellent. My wife had the Walleye and it was perfect. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. You never feel rushed. I would absolutely recommend Autre Monde."

  • "If you are in the area and are looking for a unique and delicious dining experience, Autre Monde is the place to go. They have a well crafted menu filled with bold flavors and beautiful presentations. The back patio is a great place to enjoy the weather and relax while being served some of the best food in the area. The drink menu is expertly curated and whether you are in the mood for an alcoholic drink or not, you can be assured that whatever you choose will be amazing. The service is pleasant and helpful without being in your face. You can tell that the employees want their customers to enjoy themselves. Every detail of the meal is accounted for and it doesn't stop wowing you from start to finish. If you haven't been...go now!"
