Autre Monde Ratings and Reviews
My wife is allergic to dairy and was almost served the wrong entree which had cheese in it. The waitress was very responsive though but someone else put the wrong dish on the table. The place was crowded and noisy on Valentine's night. We were conversationally challenged. The steak was very flavorful though, but the fries were nothing special. The hummus was good. The table we had was very small and they had to move a lot of stuff around to fit the plates. I've been here before in the summer for brunch in the patio, and that was a more enjoyable experience. I probably won't come here in the winter anymore.
Autre Monde is the kind of place I'm glad we can find in the western suburbs. Interesting takes on small dishes. Not everything was a home run, but the effort was appreciated. The pintxos were very good: duck breast, pork belly. The grilled octopus was tender and tasty, and the duck sausage flatbread worked well. The gnocchi was also interesting. The only real disappointment was the cassoulet. We enjoyed the flavor, but the beans were oddly undercooked (not velvety like a traditional cassoulet). We stuck to small plates given the smaller appetites of some in our party. It's definitely worth a return trip. Restaurants like Autre Monde need local support, and this one earns it.
As always, incredible food, warm atmosphere and great wine list. My only gripe was that during this particular visit many of the red wine by the glass offerings were not available and the substitutes were not on par. The Maryland Pinot was too sweet and thin. Even with that minor issue it’s still one of my favorite restaurants. Been 7 times and never one bad morsel of food. A true gem.
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.
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.
We had a group of seven and did the chef's tasting menu. Our past experience was good.
But the chef's menu was very overpriced and the food was not good.
Our server was great. The wine was good and we had a nice evening. However, the food was bad enough we won't go back.
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.
