The restaurant has some French character thanks to the decor and style. The service was good. The mussels and pate were excellent. The steak frites was very good. The cheese board was a little disappointing.

Overrated. The "house red wine" is a cheap Beaujolais. The osso buco was rubbery. It took about 20 minutes for us to see anyone who wanted to take our order. It felt understaffed and busy, but in a way that's disorganized rather than just bustling. Disappointing. Might be worth another try, but suggest they help wait staff more or hire more. Even when taking orders, our waitress was holding dishes coming and going.

If you haven’t been to Bon Ami, put it on your “must list”. We consider ourselves “foodies” and very much love French food. Forget your manners is you get the tenderloin crepe because soaking up the bread in the sauce is delectable. The atmosphere is awesome and the patio is perfect. Truly a lovely neighborhood spot. If there is a down side it’s only the parking. You’ll have to park on the neighborhood streets and walk a couple blocks-but a great way to wear off the calories! Magnifique’

I would recommend for a nice meal and beautiful ambiance. I came for a steak and creme brûlée and thoroughly enjoyed both, and loved the atmosphere. I would not recommend for good service. I work in fine dining and completely understand that restaurants may be struggling to find staff, but I also know how well servers can do financially, and honestly I've been to a Chili's with more interactive, fun, and knowledgeable service than this. Our server was nice enough, but for the bill we received this is the bare minimum. We never knew her name, and she made my boyfriend and friend feel so rushed and anxious to order (we knew our order needed to be in by around 9pm, we had a late reservation and I understand the kitchen wants to go home!) that we skipped over apps completely, apps we would have bought had we not felt so rushed. More food=higher bill=bigger tip. Maybe they don't care about tips and that's fine, but for a nice night out I really expect more. I didn't even get a chance to read the menu. None of us did. It's in french, please give people a minute. Even an average server would read the room and know this on instinct. My only complaint about the food is my boyfriend ordered medium rare and received it way overcooked, but everything else, including my steak and creme brûlée, were perfect. If you want to figure the menu out for yourself and be left alone to eat good food in a nice setting, this is your place. If you want an all around exceptional experience, including service (hard to find these days), go somewhere else.

Pros: Traditional French offerings for the American pallet, location, smelled wonderful the entire visit truly intoxicating smells, decent ambiance lighting and seating, food was flavorful and fresh. Support staff was wonderful

Cons: extremely hot indoors would never sit indoors again, under salted food, POOR SERVER (honestly couldn’t be bothered) would consider reassessment in that department.

Takeaway: will return for french flavors on a crisp fall day and request a pleasant server.

The crepes were a disappointment. They were tasteless and were more like a round magic eraser. Not nice and delicate. There was no Gruyrer cheese flavor just a bland bachemel sauce. Ham was tasty.
Onion soup was also sad because it wasn’t a rich onion broth but more like caned beef bullion with onions with cheese melted over it.
All three of us were very disappointed. We will try again because COVID has made things a bit strange.
Hope they get back to being French.

As always, an excellent meal and great service. Consistently top shelf meals; I have now tried every crepe and have never been disappointed. Great wine list, as well. The patio is the perfect place for dinner, just lovely all around.

We love this place! The food is delicious -- our favorites are the Merise crepe and the Seafood crepe. Lovely ambience. A little noisy if you're seated right next to the kitchen, though that's to be expected. We'll keep coming back.

In the past, we have had excellent experiences at Bon Ami. After suggesting it to friends, they decided to try it with us. Unfortunately, although the food was very good, the experience was spoiled by inattentive service, when our attempts to hail our waitress went unnoticed, our requests for pepper and more bread went unheeded, and then we felt we were rushed towards the end of our meal. Our reservation was for 7:30. At 9, the floor next to our table was being swept, which we found very unappetizing.
