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
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 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!
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 brought my friend here for a birthday celebration during restaurant week. We had the signature chicken dish and the boeuf bourguignon. Both were excellent! The onion soup was delicious as was the creme Brûlée. We enjoyed the evening!
The service was excellent!
This is a charming little place in Lincoln Square with the municipal lot right across the street. They hve a lovely outdoor seating area in the summer. Inside the decors is warmly lit and conducive to conversation. The food is simple country French done REALLY well.
terrible service....waiters/waitresses are too busy talking to each other rather than paying attention to their customers...bussboy was the only one paying attention to us. Food was really below average and not properly seasoned...someone forgot to use salt on the steak and quiche but dumpped all of that salt on the salad. the ambience was very dull...not even playing classic french music ( the norm for classic french restaurants) but some old general music. would not recommend at all....go to Le Bouchon instead.
The service was exceptional. Our waitress was really attentive and very good. The ambiance was great. It was my boyfriend's birthday, and they wished him a happy birthday, brought him a mini dessert after dinner, etc. The duck was really good, and the mushroom ragout was great. The chicken was not. The seasoning was off. It tasted like way too much vegeta seasoning. We returned it.... the beet appetizer was good. The mushroom side was good but nothing spectacular. I'm sure there were other decent entrees...but the menu is pretty limited, and the expectation would be that each single dish would be good to exceptional when the average entree is 25 to 32 dollars.
