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.

Fantastic! We all enjoyed our meals. The chicken plate is worth a return (seriously...this was my second time and I only came for the chicken)

The service was excellent--attentive without being pushy on a very busy night. And the food, very French, was outstanding.

We really enjoyed our meal. Everything was delicious, and the warm baguette served with the meal was a nice touch. I expected better service, but overall the service was adequate.

Small restaurant that reminds us of Paris. Great cocktails and french food, small tables, creative takes on French favorites. Friendly wait staff and parking lot across the street. If you've been to Paris, this restaurant will remind you a bit of that amazing city.

Great time. Food was delicious, and I had a great wine too. Chairs could have been more comfortable, that’s my only complaint.

Great service, fun atmosphere (tho music was way too loud for such a small space).
Good wine, good beet appetizer. Wonderful dessert tart.
The steak frites dish was tough and almost indigestible.
My friend's beef bourguignon was just ok. Maybe it was the real cook's night off or maybe
it's not a place for beef dishes (or entrees). Shoulda ordered the fish.
Sorry for the bluntness, but there it is...

Two friends and I made a reservation at Bistro Campagne for the last night of their Restaurant Week prix fixe menu. Everything was absolutely delicious. From the soupe a l'oignon to our main courses - the chicken, the trout, and the boeuf bourguignon - and our desserts - pot de creme, creme brulee, and a fig bread pudding - everything was on point. Our waiter suggested a beautiful bottle of wine to go along with our meal. A snowstorm had just begun to hit Chicago, and we felt like we had entered a cozy French hideaway. Can't wait to come back and try brunch on the patio this summer!

We stopped in for Restaurant Week and were blown away by the food! It was so so good; I can't stop thinking about it. We'll definitely be back for more. I can't wait to return in the summer to check out the gorgeous patio!

Everything was wonderful, as usual. The food, however, was consistently cold. Perhaps the food had been pre-prepared & then was heated before serving. This did effect the food quality.

Fourth year for restaurant week and the quality and selection have really diminished. Beef bourginon was so salty it was inedible. Waitress was negligent and inattentive. Would not recommend much less revisit.

We loved the ambiance, from the decor to the French music playing (not too loud), to the friendly service. Unpretentious but upscale. Overall, a lovely brunch on a snowy day - and we can't wait to go back and try the patio when it's nice out.

Came for Chicago Restaurant Week. Was impressed by the flexibility of substituting items from the regular menu into the pre-fixe menu. Food was outstanding! Noise from adjacent tables was unusually loud, though it subsided when those parties left the dining room. We will be back!

We were lucky enough to snag a reservation during Restaurant Week that I'm certain was a last-minute cancellation. I had the pan fried trout with smoked trout risotto and spinach salad. It was so delicious, the word 'delicious' doesn't really do it justice. The service was spectacular with our waitress checking on us a perfect amount -- not too little, not too much. The food is amazing and the fact that this is neighborhood spot and independently owned makes it even better. We'll be back.

I've been enjoying BC for many years and have always had exceptional experiences. Therefore, I do not say this cavalierly; the food and service this evening was mediocre. I hope it was just one bad night.

Took advantage of restaurant week with a 3-course selection of terrific selections in each course. Service was superb and our waiter’s wine suggestion was spot one. Bistro Campagne rarely disappoints and delivers on food, service and atmosphere.
