About Bistro Campagne
Bistro Campagne is a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant in the tradition of a true French bistro. From the beginning, Bistro Campagne has strived to capture and express that ephemeral quality found in favorite small neighborhood bistros in Paris and rural France: the sense of welcome, ease, fun conversation & and of course excellent food. The setting is a charming blend of prairie-inspired decor and lively Gallic spirit. It is the food, however, that is at the heart of a great bistro, and Chef Michael Altenberg offers a seasonally changing menu of classic bistro fare that is based on the best ingredients he can find. His commitment to organic agriculture leads him to seek products from local organic farmers throughout our Midwestern growing season, and even from organic farms on the west coast throughout the winter. Bistro Campagne is committed to the use of organic food products and strongly supports the sustainable, low impact agriculture movement.

Bistro Campagne Ratings and Reviews
Dinner was lovely as always. Wish they would expand their dessert menu and perhaps add a simple sandwich or salad that is a bit less rich - maybe with chicken instead of beef. I love the restaurant - but sometimes want something a little smaller - and less rich.
We've had brunch here in the past, which is fabulous; this was our first time having dinner. The atmosphere is so nice & cozy; tables are close together, but spread out among rooms so that it felt very intimate. The service and food were outstanding. We especially loved the mussels and the onion strudel appetizers. Very memorable experience in a fun neighborhood.
Second time here. The food is very good, as is the service. It is a very cozy place. We were seated near the front door and it was a very cold night so it was annoying every time someone came in the door. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed this place. The French Onion soup and Steak Frittes are amazing!
My husband and I went to Bistro Campagne for a casual anniversary dinner at the end of December. The atmosphere was very intimate and cozy, enhanced by their holiday decor. Our waitress was very nice and incredibly enthusiastic. The food was a bit on the pricey side but very delicious and everything we had hoped for. We had the Fromage for our appetizer, Steak Frites & Croque Madame. They were also able to make an Aperol spritz at my request and per my husband "the best" gin and tonic he has ever had. I would highly recommend for a cozy date night or intimate celebration. We cannot wait to go back when their gorgeous patio is open!
I have worked in the industry for years, it's hard to go out and not have a criticism either about the food, service or even noise level. Their brunch
was an exceptional treat! It was quiet, food was good, service was good. Cannot wait to come back for dinner.
A friend and I went for a last minute dinner n the neighborhood and stumbled upon a review or Bistro Campagne. We started with drinks, which were reasonably priced although I should add I’m used to downtown prices, they didn't have the vodka I wanted (Grey Goose) for my martini but the server was knowledgeable and pointed me to a great substitute (North Shore). We had a house salad and a fondue, more like a dip, to start. The fondue/dip was very tasty while the salad was just ok. There was a bit of sand in the lettuce. For the main course we had a cheese and charcuterie platter and the steak frites made with hangar steak. The fries were ok but the steak was absolutely perfect. The perfect temperature and a generous serving size. It really hit the spot. The reduction served along with it was quite tasty and rich but I could see it being interpreted as too salty, cloying and a tad greasy on an off night. It came ever so close to crossing that line. The cheese and charcuterie platter was quite good as well. Someone really knows their cheese. For dessert we had a Pain Perdue which was good but very sweet and a tad dry and a great sorbet. All in all it was a very nice meal and we will be back. Next time I plan on trying the roast chicken and mushrooms.
This was our first visit, and it will not be our last. The food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. The restaurant is divided into smaller rooms that are warm and eye-catching. We loved our table for two, tucked into a nook by the entrance to another room. It was a romantic celebration, and we dined. We were not rushed from one plate to the next, but instead, the whole night was a dining experience.
Sat me near the door and by the window. I was cold. I asked for another table. The restaurant said there was one table in the aisle where people would be walking by me all the time. What was disheartening is that they really didn't show concern regarding my dining experience.
I've been here many times for dinner and the food is always delicious. When it's nice outside there is a very nice courtyard to sit and eat in. This was the first time I went for brunch and it was fantastic. One of the best brunches I've eaten. We had the quiche with a side salad and the french toast. I will be back!
The food was good but not exceptional but the service was top notch. The Salad Lyonnaise
was quite good but the pork chop and the steak frites could have been better. The steak was smothered with Bordelaise sauce which overpowered the meat. This aside, the maitre'd was very accommodating even though we were an hour late for our reservation. I will give Bistro Campagne another shot on my next visit.
Bistro Campagne is now officially my favorite spot when I visit family in Chicago. It is intimate with an authentic neighborhood feeling. But, huzzah, the food - and drink - are also fabulous! House chicken is a classic. And my fish special for the night - their sophisticated take on "fish and chips" - was outstanding. Wine and cheese course also excellent.
