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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We hadn’t been for quite a while because of the noise level but will definitely now go back and either sit outside or go very early because the food is definitely worth it. Especially wonderful was the house special salad of baby arugula, toasted hazelnuts, reggiano and balsamic.

Attentive staff, exceptional food, stellar wine and cocktail offerings. We sat on the patio, which was delightfully uncluttered and inviting. When it's cooler out, we'll sit at the bar inside, which oozed slinky, fun, relaxed cool. Great neighborhood gem.
Also: they knew it was our anniversary and gave us complimentary champagne--great touch!

Been meaning to make it here for a long time. Glad we made it. Very quiet for a Saturday night. We were the only table in the dining room but then kept seeing others come from the back. Terrace? Wasn’t given that option upon arrival.
Food was very tasty. Enjoyed the hummus and pork belly the best. Service was good at beginning and end but the middle experience felt like we were forgotten. We will be back!

This is a hidden gem in the Berwyn area! The food and atmosphere makes you feel like you are dining in the city, but knowing you are closer to home (in the suburbs) is a plus! The food was exquisite. We did the chefs tasting menu as it was our first time, and let's just say each plate was just as delicious as the previous. The spices and flavors of each dish was unique and great on the palate. For dessert would HIGHLY recommend the chocolate nutella mousse... WOW!
The service was just as wonderful, our waiter Ian was great at providing recommendations and being attentive to our dining experience! Thank you for such a wonderful evening!

Autre Monde is our favorite restaurant since moving to Oak Park in 2011. Top notch all around and on par with the best hotspots in the city, minus the pretention. The wine and spirits list is creative and carefully curated. Culinary execution is on point and service is lights out. The octopus, guanciale flat bread and chocolate hazelnut pot de creme are showstoppers! Our friends were floored.

Food was terriffic as always. Noise level, as you call it-energetic, high but we're used to it. Service marginal. Our waiter had a ton of tables and he was as good as he could be with that kind of 'caseload'. We had great wait staff experiences in previous visits.
