Must come back to try the cassoulet5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTres magnifique!What a fantastic find in Lincoln Park! The food was superb! Chef Dominique nailed the blood sausage and the ratatouille! Best I've ever had (including my French mother's version)-of course, that's between you and I. The mousse was excellent and was easily shared between the two of us. The atmosphere was lively yet still romantic.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat prix fixe menu. WineGreat prix fixe menu.

Best of luck to Chef Dominique with his new venture!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMService was a little slowService was a little slow and it seemed too crowded in the room, but once the food came, all our little complaints disappeared. The food was outstanding.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFeels Like My House Every Time!I go back to Chez Moi because I feel comfortable there--as though it is, indeed, My House. From the warm welcome at the front door to the chef's nightly round of the tables to insure all are enjoying themselves, I always fully relax--for I know I'm in for some delicious pampering. I also like how whether I'm there with business colleagues, friends, or family, and whether I'm in work clothes or my jeans, I fit in. Unlike other French bistros in the city, you don't ever feel intimidated about knowing/not knowing the food or the wine; it's a totally pretension-free place. You truly feel At Home--and glad you're not doing the cooking for a night!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a gem. I never went toWhat a gem. I never went to Cafe Bernard (the restaurant that was previously here), but I'm sure glad I visited Chez Moi. The food is fantastic, the service is impeccable and I can't wait to go back. We tried a bevy of menu items and were thrilled with all of them. Like I said, this was my first time, but if it's consistently like this, you really can't go wrong. I'm counting the days until my next dinner there.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. ServiceFood was excellent. Service was kind of odd. Asked to split a three course special (we don't a lot and the three courses was more than enough for the two of us) and the waiter had a complete deer in the headlights response. Then our soup and salad arrived at the same time. The main entree arrived before we were a quarter of the way into the soup and before we touched the salad. We had a table covered with food. We still enjoyed ourselves and the cassoulet and onion soup were outstanding. Get the Brittany cake and white cheese ice cream for desert. Wow.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMloved the place would goloved the place

Service is friendly. The bartender; great.
Can't wait to go back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal! Chef DominiqueExcellent meal!
Chef Dominique is an excellent ambassador to the Culinary Arts.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have visited a number ofWe have visited a number of first year restaurants recently. Some not doing so well. Chez Moi is the exception. On Saturday, it was thriving with 60% of the seats filled at 6 pm. By seven nary a seat to be had. Riesling is not always found in a French restaurant. There was no problem here. All though very busy, we did not feel rushed. Our waiter was on top of our care.
All in all a great meal and experience. If you are doing the North Halsted theater circuit, it is definitely a place to seek out.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTalk about a hidden gem! GreatTalk about a hidden gem! Great food and service in a cute Lincoln park locale.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pre fixe!We really enjoyed the pre fixe dinner after a matinee at Steppenwolf.

The service was absolutely wonderful as was the food. i would recommend the mussels and the brittany cake, as well as a pureed garlic spread (not sure how it is listed on the menu - someone in our group ordered it and we passed it around - it came with frites and was absolutely divine.) We will be back!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice that chef came out toNice that chef came out to greet us and ask how food was. It was a friendly atmosphere. Nice size and cozy restaurant.

Fish is perfectly prepared.
Mushroom side is something special.
A bit pricey to be on regular rotation of restaurants, but an excellent choice for a special occasion.
Valet parking or street parking is available.
Michael gives excellent service, request his station when making reservations.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the place!This was my 3rd visit to Chez Moi. What I love best about the place is that the staff are not constantly asking "how's everything" like every other place. The food,ambiance and location is just what I expect from a French Bistro.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss it - just go.The food was very, very good; the service was great and our waitress knew all about the menu. The place is just beautiful. Highly recommended.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will love the food.The food was amazing! I thought we needed to do something fun after working 12 hour days for a while. French bistro sounded delightful! We had the onion soup, escargot, cassoulet, scallops and chocolate mousse. Food and wine was amazing- everything was good! The baked cheese on the soup was delicious! Escargot with garlic - piping hot! (be sure that you like garlic). The casoulete - so rich and flavorful with a leg of duck, pieces of lamb and 2 pieces of some sort of sausage to die for! Scallops with bacon cream were delicate and really good with polenta. Chocolate mousse dessert - just perfect and cool with pieces of caramel. Person on the phone was delightful. Just go, relax and enjoy the food! We also met the chef - really cool.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit and the feedback is as pleasant as the first one. Delicious and friendly. Décor reminded us of a "Flemish renaissance painting" more than the traditional "US French bistro" so as a Belgian I felt quite at home! An enjoyable evening.
Paul M. Van Halteren3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food & service. Thegood food & service.

The cassoulet is the best I've ever had - here or in France! The ambiance is intimate & welcoming - this is not "stuffy French", this is truly "bistro French". Just lovely. Don't know why we waited so long to go & can't wait to return!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMChez Moi est EnchanteurWas our first experience at Chez Moi and we enjoyed very much!

MyOur meal was fantastic. My spouse had the fixed price 3 course dinner. He chose the onion soup, the pork chop and brittany cake. The soup was awesome and the pork chop was perfectly cooked. I had the salmon, which was just a little too seared, but otherwise good. THis may be our new favorite French place and we will come back.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect New Years Eve dinner!!Chose Chez Moi for New Years Eve and was thoroughly impressed!!! They gave each table and guest party hats and candy around 10:30... And the place was rockin with laughter and conversation!! Amazing duck confit and beef Wellington! Great ambiance and crowded but when we arrived for our reservation we were seated immediately! The kitchen sits between the two main dining rooms which is fun because the chef and other cooks were friendly and talkative and energetic which spread throughout the entire restaurant! Great date spot and I'd definitely go back and also recommend for holidays, special occasions and or any night out!! Such a great place !!12/31/2012 12:00:00 AM
