The food was delicious. The restaurant is too loud making it difficult to carry on a conversation. Our table was crammed into a corner and all the food came out st once! There was no room on the small table. It was very crowded and the service was not up to par.
Consistently great food and service. A real dining experience. One of our top three favorites. With fairly close seating for some tables you can’t expect intimacy but the food far outweighs that critique
This was the second time my family dined at Autre Monde. I felt the portions of the small plates were too small for their price. Some of the flavors seemed poorly executed for example the Scallops anise butter was too strong and the tartar sauce had no acid and tasted like capers and mayonnaise.
Great find! Food and service were excellent would definitely go back extensive wine and cocktails list
Cozy spot for an early dinner. Great to have this level of dining in the neighborhood.
Everything about Autre Monde was great. Service, food, decor... if I could eat there all the time it would be worth the extra weight! ;)
Ever disappoints! I love this place! Great food and drink!
Always a great meal with terrific drinks and top level service. Reasonably priced and you get a wide range of menu options. It never disappoints!
The food was excellant. Service was perfect, enough at the right times and not obtrusive. A little cold when the door opens even with the airlock.
We love this place so much. It's always wonderful. The menu is always changing and we can't wait to get back there every time! Yum yum yum. Perfect.
As always, the food was delicious. We were encouraged to order everything at once, which we did. We hadn’t finished our salads when the lasagna arrived. We had literally taken the first cut into the lasagna pan when the steak arrived. The coursing of the food was lightening fast, forcing us to put aside cold dishes in order to enjoy hot ones, and cramming our table so full we were constantly juggling dishes around. We asked our waiter twice to slow it down. He finally announced things would slow down AFTER our last dish arrived. Hmmm....we sort of figured that out ourselves. Feeling rushed has never been part of our experience here and it did diminish what we hoped would be a relaxing meal, catching up with friends.
I love this little neighborhood gem. Second time I have been there in a month and have tried a variety of things, all of which were delicious. A great place to sit at the bar and have a bite, which is very enjoyable. Nice bartenders who mix a mean drink and make great recommendations from the menu. I'll be back again very soon!
We came here for dinner before a show at Fitzgerald's with our adult children. Everyone was very impressed with the food and cocktails, even willing to come back from the where they live in the West Loop to dine here. Not an overwhelming tapas menu. Just enough to please all. I think we may have ordered everything on the menu and although not everything was for everyone, there was not a dish that was a disappointment. Don't skip dessert!
Excellent waiter too!
The food was very fresh and light with a wonderful variety of flavors.
Delicious small and large plates meant for sharing. Fresh and well-seasoned Mediterranean inspired fare. Excellent cocktails and wine list.
Delicious as always. Our best neighborhood restaurant.
Pork chop was amazing!
We have been trying to get into Autre Monde for a while but always went on the weekend when it was crowded. This time, we went on a Tuesday, when it was quieter. The food was inventive and tasty. And the service, from the lovely and outgoing Denise, was excellent. Had a great time.
Great meal!!! Everything was delicious. Service was prompt and helpful. We shared all of the plates and it was great to have a taste of so many different, flavorful dishes!!
Great experience. The food was delicious and the wine list impressive. Our server was on top of it, and knew the menu well.
Would definitely recommend this gem.
This was a disappointing experience.
Very crowded and very difficult to have a conversation let alone hear what our waitress was saying. Tables are tight. We felt rushed through our meal. For the price one would expect to have a relaxed intimate dining experience. So not the case.
Tres chic! Great food. Hard to have a conversation with anyone other than neighbors. But the food, service and wine was par excellent!
It was our first time here. We loved the small plate options, we ordered two entrees definitely enough to share. Desserts were excellent. We will be back.
Great food, amazing service, wonderful wine list. We have been going to Autre Monde since it opened more than 8 years ago and it remains one of our most favorite restaurants!
Poor lighting and indifferent waitress. Little explanation of prix fixe menu. Uncomfortable chairs.
Food and cocktails are delicious.
First time and it was delicious. We will be back. Waitress was so nice and informative on our servings.
It smelled way fishy when we first got there and almost left, but glad we didn’t; the food was amazing and the staff was superb!!
Friendly staff but pretty loud and ambience-free. Waiter was knowledgeable but bar service was very slow. Tasty octopus & grilled items.
Never disappointed when I go here. Good is thoughtfully prepared and presented and always outstanding! One of my favorite restaurants in the chicgoland area. Hands down!
We had read reviews and were looking forward to the ambiance and meal. We made a reservation and they could not find our reservation. And, the hostess who seated us (the only one in the restaurant) was the one to call and confirm our reservation. The outdoor seating was casual and nice. When we asked our server about certain dishes, he would respond with answers like, “it’s xyz dish as it’s served in Spain.” We stopped asking about dishes as he was flippant. Not a good start to a great restaurant experience on our date night. But, we forged ahead. We had the hummus and pita which was amazing. Great flavors with a little spice. And, the meatball was melt in your mouth good. Our server recommended the octopus which is supposed to be one of their signature dishes. We would say skip it. Grilled but, not much flavor. We didn’t finish much of it and threw out our leftover. And the last item we had was pasta in a pea sauce with 2 small scallops and 2 shrimp. The pea sauce did not appeal to either of us. Overall, we would say skip Autre Monde as you are not missing a great dining experience.
Tonights dinner was just ok. It seemed to lack the uniqueness that we usually encounter when we dine here. I hope it was just an off night.
Food was cooked beautifully. I would have preferred to have the dishes served together instead of one at a time.
This is my fourth visit to Autre Monde and it's been a while since I've last visited. The food is still amazing and great for sharing. The flatbread, corn risotto, meatball were all amazing. Plenty of food to share between 2 people. Nice outdoor patio that I wasn't aware of. Will definitely return. Worth the trip if you're not in the area.
Delicious and unique options. Service was excellent. A little pricey, but would return.
Service was stuffy, hurried, and not very friendly. Food did not impress us as much as it has in the past. Lots of restaurants in the area to choose from and will choose someplace else next time we dine out.
Sat on the patio and enjoyed delicious dishes on one of the last warm summer nights. The pork belly, the corn risotto and the blood orange gimlet! Yum!
Autre Monde is a energetic, casual, and fun place to dine if you don't mind the noise level. The service was friendly and spaced the dinner nicely. Of the small plates we tried, the gnocchi, the hummus (2 flavors), and the prawns were stand-outs.
Love the food and service. Need a fan on patio on warm summer nights
