Wonderful dining experience. Our brunch was delightful and a unique step from the norm.
The hash brown cake was a notable item. As well as the Bechamel Sauce, Merise Crêpe- and Crab Crêpe

Great outdoor patio..... I wish the food could live up to it. My dining partner had the beef bourguignon and I had the onion soup and stroganoff crêpe. The portions were hearty but everything was salty. The soup was filled with croutons of bread under a nice layer of cheese. But it didn't taste like a good onion soup.... something about the broth that was salty and off-putting. The crepe came in the middle of my eating the soup, so I had to set it aside and let it grow cold while I eat the crepe. The beef was tender and plentiful but the crepe was either soggy or undercooked.... not very appetizing. The vegetable glaze over the crepe was salty. My partner though the bourguignon was good but again it was salty.
We had the chocolate mousse for dessert and it was the best part of dinner. The mousse was dark, rich and creamy.
Service was average. Our server seemed only present when taking an order or bringing something to the table.

Would highly recommend. We sat outside with our dog and had a delicious meal. We shared the mussels - a very generous portion and each had a crepe - mine with salmon and his with tenderloin. We were both thrilled with our choices. Desserts choices looked amazing but we were full. We will go back one evening for just a drink and dessert.

I was thrilled to find Bon Ami! I feel like so many Denver restaurants are all the same these days...small plates. I wanted something for my birthday celebration with friends that is unique! The crepes are just that. I had the Beef Stroganoff crepe. (It was tough to decide which one, as there are lots of great choices!) I'm not normally a big, beef eater...but again, it was totally different, which was what I was going for. I was the "dude" at my table that night. Everyone else had white wine, but I went with the Cote Du Rhone, which was amazing! Their pours are extremely generous. My friend and I both got the chocolate mouse, which we lapped up...very good, very chocolatey, maybe a tiny bit heavier that a lot of chocolate mouse, but it was delicious! I'll be back!

This is our second visit to Bon Ami, and once again we had a lovely time. The outdoor patio in the evening was just right after a hot day. The service was excellent. I had the salmon but the Fisherman's Soup (aka Bouillabaisse) is still my favorite.

Love Bon Ami! We usually sit inside, but last night was gorgeous so we sat outside. Cozy, shady and quiet. Weather permitting, it is a great alternative. Food was seasonal and delicious. I had mussels and my husband had Fisherman's stew. The wait staff always does a great job.

The waiter was great and we loved sitting on the patio. The cold beet soup was an incredible hot pink color that was quite fun. And while the food was a tad over salted for our taste, the textures and flavors were great.

Food is always outstanding! Limited menu. Service varies from poor to very good. We waited 15 minutes to just get a menu and a glass of water. We have been there several times. We like the food and ambiance, so are willing to deal with the service issues.

We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary at Bon Ami and couldn’t have been more pleased! Everything from start to finish was top notch! I had requested a booth which was provided and drinks were served within minutes of our arrival. The oysters were small but succulent, the Heirloom tomato caprese salad was generous and so very tasty. My husband had the beef bourguinon and was not disappointed and I had the Seafood crepe which was beyond delicious. We finished the evening with a banana, chocolate, almond crepe which was a perfect way to end the meal. We had house wine which was very complimentary to the meals we were enjoying. Our servers were attentive but did not hover. We will be coming back often and referring this gem repeatedly! Well done!!!

We are big fans and frequent diners of La Merise in Cherry Creek North and were thrilled to find this small, quiet bistro pop up in our neighborhood by the same owners. We LOVE the menu and will be going back to try each of the crepes. I have to be gluten free and most of the menu can be made GF without compromising the quality of the dishes...including Beef Bourguignon! The patio is perfect for summer nights - and happy hour as it is well-shaded and protected from the elements. Inside seating is quaint and the perfect atmosphere for quiet conversation. We just love Bon Ami!

My husband and I have been frequent customers of La Merise over the many years it has been in business. We love this new addition at least as much--and we've been there at least a half dozen times since trying it out a couple months ago! The food is always excellent, the crepe entrees add a wonderful array of options, the service is fabulous, and it is just a warm and wonderful place to spend an evening with friends!

Bon Ami is a casual neighborhood eatery with French inspired cuisine. Good cocktails and oysters, and a great selection of wines by the bottle. Try the fried artichokes!

Second visit to this restaurant this month. Food was exceptional - I had the mercies crepe with filet mignon - excellent choice. My other guests had the 2 chicken entrees which were equally great. The chardonnay was the best I've had based on recommendation. Creme brûlée was divine and couldn't finish it - will definitely go back. This place is a true gem

I really enjoyed this restaurant. We were not able to sit outside as anticipated as the only seats left available were in the direct sun, so we opted to sit inside. The only frustration was the lack of places to park. Parking was tricky and the traffic in the area was of no help to the cause. Since it was Sunday, we found street parking in a neighborhood that typically requires a residential permit on normal days (M-Sat). Other than the parking, the food and service were good.

Outstanding food and service. Best French food in Denver. Patio is romantic and perfect for a first date. They have everything from beef dishes to vegetarian. Exquisitely repaired. Best wine value as well, during happy hour for half priced bottles of wine. Although their pours are most generous and selection divine.

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!
