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 Adam Grandt 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.

Everything was absolutely perfection! The chicken is phenomenal, as always. Bistro Campagne has turned into our favorite French food in the city. Also, the noise level is conducive to having conversation unlike many of the Chicago hot spots!

We had not been to Bistro Campagne for awhile and we were delighted at the service, food and atmosphere! It is a lovely neighborhood restaurant that is excellent, comparable in quality to popular/touristy restaurants, but so much nicer in its ambiance. A Chicago gem.

Best French Bistro in the city and has been for quite some time. Right there with Le Bouchon.
Meals are executed superbly making it obvious the kitchen has a high level of competency.
Every time I dine there I notice a subtle menu addition/change and always for the better.
Waitstaff is knowledgeable regarding the menu. Always enjoy the staff there.
My only wish is the wine list had a little more volume.
Overall, Bistro Campagne is my favorite dining spot in the city. Their outdoor area is as good a setting as there is.
For very good French fare in as quaint and comfortable a setting as you’ll find in Chicago, Bistro Campagne is a must.

We are regulars since the opening. Worst meal we ever had. Chef changed the meat cut of the steak frites - awful and fatty. Salmon quality tasted frozen served with mushy potato galette. Might need to reconsider as our fave neighborhood spot. Really saf

Very good food. My friend had the chicken and I had the white fish, we were both very happy with our meals. Our scallop appetizer was very tasty also. Too bad it was raining, I would have liked to have eaten in their lovely garden.

The food is always perfect there. Sitting outside in the adorable patio in back is so relaxing. The server was very nice and friendly. The only problem was it took a very very long time to get our entrees.

Bistro Campagne is in one of the most beautiful spaces of any restaurants I’ve been to. We especially love the courtyard, but the indoor seating areas also have a nice atmosphere. We were there most recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and were greeted with glasses of champagne, which was a lovely touch. Every course of our meal was delicious, and the service was at exactly the right level of attentiveness.

We loved our visit to Bistro Campagne. The outdoor garden looks lovely, I hope we can get a table out there some time in this great weather. We loved the hot bread, which came to the table only after we ordered appetizers, so we didn't get to eat much of it because our beet salad had arrived and it was terrific. The whitefish on pea puree was heavenly. I love steak frites, but didn't pay enough attention to the menu and it came smothered in a sauce, which I would've preferred it not had. That said, it was perfectly done and the fries were great. Only real downside was our server. She took our initial cocktail order at the outset, taking a lot of care to help us understand each fabulous ingredient, then once they were delivered, we never saw her again the rest of the meal. Wonderful spot, though, charming, cozy and always good food.

I reserve a table every year for my girlfriend and I. It’s been a three year tradition for our anniversary. We’ve never been disappointed. The food is excellent. The ambiance is great for romantic dinners. The service is great and the staff is kind.

Tried this local restaurant and found it to be excellent. Food is on a caliber with much more expensive venues. Outdoor patio is busy - we opted for an inside table and were rewarded with a quiet dinner.

We were seated outside, but because we could smell garbage from alley, we ask to move to different seat. The food was tasty, however my friends quail was not baked enough. She asked for making it better, but eventually she took it home to cook it more.

The food was good however the service was terrible. It took an hour to get the first course. We cancelled sides after they didn’t arrive with the main course or 15 minutes later despite us asking for the status (it was macaroni and cheese).

Only the busboy came by to fill our water. The waitress never returned to check on us.

They brought us the wrong check.

Can't say enough great things about Bistro Campagne - you can tell the staff loves working there, they know and are proud of what they serve and do. The food is phenomenal - beautifully orchestrated 'French Bistro" food - you feel like you have been transported to someone's home in France -- no stuffy pretentiousness - just a cozy, intimate environment with a joie de vivre. A true gem.

We were blown away by the cocktails and pre fixe menu last Wednesday! The decor was lovely and atmospheric and the wait staff attentive and professional. Seldom does one get full portions as well as a variety of starters with wine pairings for $52 !?! The Mussel starter was huge & superb and my entree was the Best Chicken dish I’ve EVER tasted. We will definitely be regulars!

A very comfortable setting that could almost pass as a country bistro. The food is excellent (try the croquettes, and then the confit de canard, or perhaps the steak frites), and the service helpful and cheerful. The wine list is a bit problematic: the offerings could be increased and the prices decreased. Overall, however, good food and good value.

My husband and I came here for his birthday. We sat on the back patio, had a few cocktails, an app, and two entrees; we loved everything! It was a bit pricey but you pay for what you get. The patio was beautiful. We would return and recommend this to others.

We have been there many times and will never return because:

1 - $9 salad had such minimal dressing we couldn't taste it and asked for more
2 - They forgot one order which was then ordered when the other 5 entries arrived
3 - The foie gras was cold
4 - The duck was supposed to have a cherry sauce, but only had cherries thrown into a sauce
5 - Mussels were overcooked and were lukewarm when served. 1/3 would not open and were edible

Other than that, the fries, deserts and steak were well prepared.

Having eaten here before, he anticipated a standard that we were accustomed too, only to find out that something was terribly wrong in the kitchen.
