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.

I love Bon Ami and am there often. Especially love the patio. My dish was disappointing and so over salted I could not finish.

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!

The most important thing to me in enjoying a dinner out is if the seating is comfortable and the table height is not too high. Everything here was exceptional and tasty. The portions were such that I was not stuffed when I left but feeling sated. The crepe I had "Nice Crepe" was perfect. Escargot excellent. My partner and I engaged in conversation which was not at all interrupted multiple times like in some restaurants where the waitron comes up and says, "Are you still working on that?" No, here it is calm and yet timely. We were able to make our next destination in plenty of time without feeling rushed. And we didn't have to "work" on our food; we simply ate and enjoyed.

Delicious food, reasonably priced bottomless mimosas, lovely patio. The only sour note was our unfriendly server, whose sullen responses and generally unfriendly and smug attitude made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. Her facial expressions were just short of an eye roll when taking our (uncomplicated) order and she barely said a word to us. When you’re spending time and money at an establishment it’s nice to be made to feel as if you’re wanted and valued, and confusing when an employee to treats you like you an imposition and a nuisance from the moment you sit down.

This restaurant is hands down one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. The beet and lentil salad was fresh and and lightly tossed with an excellent dressing. The French onion soup came in a large bowl loaded with carmelized onions in a rich broth. Worth the visit. You won’t be disappointed.

The cocktails are beautiful. The special Brussels sprouts are a must if they are on the menu. Typical French bistro food but done so well. Try the mussels (white) if you are not afraid of garlic and the steak/frites is classicly rendered.

Our meal was great, and the prices are reasonable. The place is very cute, and the staff was kind. However the service was incredibly slow - so much so that we wondered whether it is supposed to be “an experience” of unhurried European dining. App took a long time, food took a long time, and the dessert took the longest. The server wasn’t completely MIA between courses, but certainly not around enough to feel attentive either.

I would absolutely go back, but not if i had time constraints. And if that is to be part of the restaurant’s charm and appeal (as it is of many French eateries) they need to make that clear.

I discovered this little neighborhood gem during restaurant week & this was my second time back! The food is delicious & service was fine, the only issue was a nearby table who were quite loud. It won’t deter me from going back. I can’t wait to go this summer & try their outdoor patio.

It was my first visit to Bon Ami and it will not be my last. I live in the area and I will be back. I was celebrating my birthday. We were greeted by hostess and seated promptly. She recognized it was my birthday. We arrived at 8:30pm and restaurant was very busy which is unusual for Monday night's in this area and I knew we have come to Bon Ami for a great meal and experience. Mussels and warm bread was our treat to start. I had Ratatouille crepe and my boyfriend had Parisian chicken. Both dishes were delicious and served on a hot plates. Chocolate mousse was light and delicious.

While the food was fine (OK), the service was so poor that I didn't leave any tip, which is extraordinarily unusual for me. It took a long time to be seated (although the restaurant wasn't full), and our server was incredibly inattentive. She also got my wife's order wrong, which was important because of a shellfish allergy. Then she served me my order and it took forever to get my wife's corrected order, to the extent that I eventually had to pull it off the pass-through myself and serve it to my wife without any intervention by the server (who had disappeared into the kitchen even after seeing the dish sitting there ready to go). Just a terrible service experience and we will never return.

This is our “go to” place every time we get home from work too tired to cook.
Unlike most restaurants in Denver, this place never varies in quality. The food is delicious, prepared with high quality ingredients every time.
We love the rustic pate, the crispy chicken frittes and the crab avocado salad in the summer time.
Baiba and Elena run a tight boat!
Congrats to them!

Good menu choices without being overwhelming or contrived. A friend had a crepe - we had chicken and steak frites. All dishes were really good. Just a bit too heavy on the salt for me but that's my thing. The service was very good. The Creme Brulee was great.

Overall this is a nice place. Clean and comfortable with a trendy vibe, if that's what you're in to. I can't say I loved the food, but it was good. I think the prices for what it is were fine.
My review is based on my experience with French cuisine...the seafood crepes weren't bad, but surprisingly fishy tasting. In the future if I'm craving French food I'd probably go in the evening to try the dinner menu rather than brunch fare.

As a French person, I was disappointed a bit by the food. I was expecting more of a french style crepe like the one I have had in France specially in Bretagne . Here they were covered with too much sauce, downing in it. The small crepe disappeared under the sauce. IE: the caramel on the crepe suzette, one could not taste the orange liquor that was supposed to be there?
But it is a nice neighborhood corner place. I might come back if it was open for lunch .
Also you have no parking which makes it difficult of access. You might want to ask to share your 3 neighbor business parking. On Sunday they were almost all empty yet not permitted to use if going to your place.
Thanks .
