Great Service. This was our second time here and overall it was a very good experience. There were five or us and we decided as a table to do the chef's tasting. It was a lot of food, and it was all very good. My only reason for not going five stars was that we all thought a few dishes were a bit over salted. Other than that, a great place with very good service and attention. We will be back.

This was our second visit to Autre Monde. We really enjoyed the flatbreads on our first visit and were looking forward to them again, especially the duck sausage. However, this time the edges of the flatbread were a little too burnt. We didn't complain at the time, because we had a show to get to and couldn't wait for a redo. The taste of the main parts of the flatbreads were still delicious. We just had to break off the burnt edges. We will still go back again, and this time make sure the edges aren't overdone. On a side note, our waiter was a little lax, but it looked like he had a lot of tables to attend to so it was only a minor flaw.

The food was excellent but the selections were limited. There weren't any soups and the only non-alcoholic drinks were Coke and Diet Coke. Most restaurants have a nonalcoholic beer and all have a caffeine free drink like Sprite. They had a number of small plates but only about 5 entrees.
We enjoyed the hummus accompanied by excellent homemade pita, the fresh fish , the Amish chicken and the delicious apple crisp dessert.
The service was good.

The wine list was highly overpriced. My entree was cold when I received it. We had it sent back to the kitchen only to have part of it preheated and the fish not reheated so it "wouldn't be overcooked". The sauce for the octopus appetizer was enjoyable. The octopus a little overdone--almost tasted like chicken. We asked for bread and after a 10 minute wait we were given 2 pieces of toasted bread. My husband ordered a 8oz strip steak which was at best 6 oz. The frites that accompanied it were good and crisp though. There were 10 diners including us in the restaurant and service was so slow our dinner lasted 90 minutes. It seemed as if everyone was ordering flatbreads because they were getting served with regularity. Perhaps they should focus more on flatbreads and forget the main entrees all together.

Incredibly salty food. Steak was overdone. Tuna pâté texture was rather mealy and overall was disappointing. Pita with the hummus was very good. Wine pours were minimal. And service was snippy: you are asked to place orders all at once, "that's how the chef prefers". If so, then there's no excuse for the two only entrees to be served almost ten minutes apart. Had to actually ask where the second entree was. Would not go back and will not recommend. Oh, and watch out for the upselling; very irritating.

My third trip here, the kitchen seemed overwhelmed, sauces and dressings were sparse. Dishes were slow to arrive, waiter was hard to track down. Not sure it was worth the price ($10 tiny salad). It's been better in the past.

Used to go there after they opened every week and the food was always amazing. I hadn't been there in a couple of years since we moved out of the area and unfortunately the quality of the food has gone down and the prices up. I rather go to the city to much better restaurants for that price. Hope they can one day match the quality with the price.

But the chef's menu was very overpriced and the food was not good.

The tasting menu was spectacular and I considered it a very good value. An small appetizer, 5 small plates to share and dessert is well worth the value. We struggled to finish but everything was so good, we didn't want to miss a bite.

Wait service lacking: server did not return to ask if everything was “fine”. Flatware missing was not noted. Only observation was “do you want a second cocktail”? This may be vague but service seemed rushed. One of 4 orders had a major error.

I’ve been wanting to go here forever! It was worth the wait! My friends and I did the chefs tasting menu. We like to share food and this was even better as we had the opportunity to sample more than 10 dishes off the regular and seasonal menu plus a few extras the chef was trying and multiple desserts! I Loved all but one dish and it was good, just not as good as the others. We sat on the lovely patio and we had excellent service! I’ll be eager to return!

Special shout out about the seasonal items! Our favorites all involved squash!

I was pretty excited to visit Autre Monde, but for what I paid, I have to say I was not bowled over. The new Autumn winter-squash-based menu items were ok (we tried the Harvest Moon cocktail... very sweet and too heavy with the cinnamon; the risotto was pretty good; the gelato was smooth though one dimensional); but the half chicken was billed as being served with "artichokes." Instead, I got two little pickled 'choke hearts that I'm willing to bet came out of a jar from Costco. This was quite a departure from the expectation... the chicken was beautiful and deserved an accompaniment that matched. A mezcal-based cocktail came out tasting like an old bandaid. The service was pleasant but one of the servers appeared to be chewing gum. So... nothing fatal or awful, but no real reason for me to return, either.

Autre Monde is a restaurant one should experience if you live in the suburbs or the city. Never had a bad meal. The chef, I understand, came from Spiaggia, and his deft hand with the Mediterranean cuisine shows. The menu changes often and is fresh and seasonal. We live in the western suburbs and most of the time the drive to AM is at least 45 minutes or more. Frankly, it's worth it. Tonight we had the duck sausage flat bread, (not to be missed! I dream about it!) roasted pork belly, stuffed pequillo peppers with smoked tomato sauce, mussels with chorizo and white wine, veal Marsala (not the traditional, but so much better) and a roasted chicken with artichokes. Tooo stuffed for dessert. My only complaint with AM is they are stingy with the wine pours👎

The food is always excellent. Our favorites are the beet salad, the tuna pate, the flatbreads, and all of the pastas. This last visit there was a terrific mushroom risotto, and a very good pesto gnocchi. The service is always spot on: ever helpful but not cloying. It's nice to have such a fine restaurant close by.

Our dinner at Autre Monde on Sept. 16 was a real disappointment from the very start.
The restaurant is really tight quarters and we were being shown to a table that looked very cramped and
was really close to another one. The host was talking animatedly to the folks sitting at that other table and actually had
his backside resting on the table we were being shown to! We asked for another table and were seated elsewhere.

The waiter greeted us and said he had been told a couple were celebrating an anniversary and they would have a special
dessert for them. WE NEVER GOT A THING!

The water we were served was tepid and I when I asked for a glass of cold water the waiter added ice to my glass.
He was not very attentive, though while we were chatting he interrupted one of us mid-sentence to discuss the menu.
A real no-no for waiters, in my experience.

The food was just OK. Why was there paper in the pita? It was tough and hard to cut and very messy to eat. The table was never really cleaned up after the plate was taken away. The staff seemed surprised when I asked for a clean plate. I am accustomed to being given a clean plate after a course, especially when it is very messy.

Beets with goat cheese? A very cliched offering.

The dessert, apple crumble, was not remarkable and seemed to have been burned.

TWO of the wines by the glass on the menu were unavailable.
The choices of gin and bourbon were quite limited.

The host came by, asked how things were and left before we could answer!! Yet he was having great animated conversations with the patrons at the next table.

We will not be back.

Waiter(Eric I think) was non-existent. Thank goodness we ordered the tasting menu and bottle of wine so that we didn't have to rely only on him.
20 minutes after ordering we received 1st course but still no wine. We sat there another 5 minutes looking at our plates. Last 45 minutes and last two courses we had nothing to drink. No wine , no water. Just wanted out of there at that point. Too bad ...rest of staff was great.
