Beautiful place to spend an evening on the patio with lots of shade. Staff didn't make us feel rushed.

My husband's birthday is July 4 --- not a day when many of our favorite restaurants are open. As I was searching for a good restaurant that would be open that day, I happened across Bon Ami. We pass it every so often when we are driving on Alameda, and in fact had eaten there a couple of times when it was called Telegraph. We are so glad we decided to give Bon Ami a try! We enjoyed every bite. I had escargot and salmon; my husband had onion soup and steak frites. For dessert we had a berry crepe and chocolate mousse. Service was excellent and we do want to come back on a day when we can enjoy a meal on the dog-friendly patio. (It was pouring rain the evening of July 4). Our dog would jump at the chance to tag along as her people enjoyed a nice meal.

We, a party of four, arrived during happy hour and enjoyed wonderfully mixed drinks and also ordered a great bottle go Cabernet Franc for 50% of normal price. The food was delicious, we enjoyed the escargot for an aperitif, two of us enjoyed beautifully prepared crepes, and the other two enjoyed the pork main dish and the other the steak frites. Both were delicious according to the individuals who devoured them! For dessert we shared two crepe suzettes which were very good, and a great ending to the meal. Also served is some very fine coffee. Well done Bon Ami!

The delicious menu makes it difficult to decide what to order. I wish a smorgasbord was available every time that I dine here! There are many standby plates that please everyone. Yet, the specials offer equally delicious plates not found every day. The staff is friendly and accommodating, speeding up last minute additions to the order already placed. I recommend Bon Ami for any occasion!

The brunch crepes are loaded with cheese - too much cheese. And, my crab crepe was simply a crepe folder in 3 layers as the base of the dish. There was nothing inside the crepe, so it tasted bland. We were very disappointed with the brunch selection.

My new favorite restaurant in Denver. Alana has done a superb job creating a very European feel to the dining area. And the menu is terrific, a good variety of interesting dishes. Street parking isn't bad, not an issue.

Bon Ami has great food and we love it there, however the service has been extremely slow and lack luster the past few times we've been there. It really takes away from the experience when the service is poor, especially on holidays like Mother's Day and Father's Day. We had 4 kids with us so we shouldn't have to ask for kids menus, it shouldn't take 30 min to order and then 45 min for food to arrive. Things like silverware, syrup, water refills should all be prompt but they weren't. It's disappointing because we love the food and ambience but unfortunately the poor service has left a bad taste in our mouths.

A very nice meal at Bon Ami with a friend. The wait staff were very pleasant and helpful. After ordering wine, the waiter thoughtfully brought a couple of samples of wines for us to try, which certainly assisted with our decision. We both ordered the pork medallions, which were very good, as was the salad. Both the salad dressing and the sauce had a bit too much salt, but both were very tasty. We enjoyed the meal and the ambiance and will return for another meal.

Food wasn’t that great. My husband got a hamburger and noted it was the first time that he had not finished one. There is an extra $2 charge if you get ice in your cocktail. Waitress was pretty unfriendly. Won’t be going back as there are so many better places to dine in the area.

Bon Ami is really a gem! One of the best restaurants in the Wash Park area. Their back patio is really nice and relaxing in good weather. Their crepes are all amazing -- our group ordered 5 different ones and they were all really good! The beet salad is by far the best I've ever had. Also great cocktails. Love this place!

Open Table denied my reservation because we were 30 minutes late due to bringing a disabled person with us when it started to rain very hard. We finally arrived, the restaurant was almost empty, the three of us dined, and I was penalized as a "no show" by Open Table. Please straighten this out, Open Table. Thank you.

We had a very nice meal on the Monday after Mother's day. Four of us ordered Crepes and all said they were really good.

I have eaten at Bon Ami twice and had a different crepe dish each time. Both meals were very good. There are not many places to get good crepes in Denver and I would highly recommend Bon Ami.

Charming bistro with outdoor seating. Attentive service. It was Mother's Day and busy-however my daughter ordered medium rare steak and received a well done steak. It was replaced though. My entrée of crab shrimp crepe was somewhat disappointing. It had only two tiger shrimp on top and the crab filling was full of cheese mainly. The tomato garlic sauce had very little flavor. Being honest to help other diners. Would never order this entrée again. However a charming bistro with some parking problems.

What a wonderful way to spend Mother’s Day sitting on the outdoor patio at Bob Ami. Although it is a Creperia there were other options on the menu. The crepes we both ordered were wonderful, the coffee was plentiful and I especially enjoyed the fresh squeezed orange juice. We would definitely recommend this delightful restaurant.

My husband and I both were very pleased with our first experience at Bon Ami. We enjoyed everything—the cocktails, escargots, beet salad, onion soup, the fresh bread. He had a crepe entree, and I had the sole special. The chef’s vegetables were perfect—crisp-tender and delicious. Our service was very attentive, and the timing of food arrivals was perfect. Oh, and we loved the crepes Suzette and cafe-au-lait for dessert. We are eager to return!
