We had a delicious and intimate dinner at Bon Ami and we cannot wait to go back again on another date as well as bring family there when they come visit!

The first time I ate at Bon Ami, it was fabulous, other than a few members of our party had to sit in a window seat and it was freezing. The next time, most everything was good.
One complaint is , I arrived at 5:00 for a 5:00 reservation and the hostess made sure to tell me they were fully booked and that my table had another reservation at 7:30.... I was the only customer in the restaurant when I arrived. Poor etiquette.

Great food and good value. I have been a patron of La Merise for years; a restaurant under common ownership with Bob Ami. This place holds the same high standards.

We have dined a number of times at Bon Ami. We are never disappointed. The Parisien chicken was delicious. The beet salad was outstanding. The steaks were excellent. The restaurant easily made adaptations for our party due to dietary restrictions. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Denver.

I felt much younger than most patrons of Bon Ami as my girlfriend and I were seated, but not out of place. Neat cocktail menu, not too long nor too short. Our server was less personable than a Denny’s waitress at 1 AM on a Monday morning, that’s my only complaint. She Probably thought young folks wouldn’t tip her or something? Not sure. The food and crêpes are fantastic though.

Our second try for Bon Ami. Last year we had reservations for New Years but due to the low temps that night (2 degrees) we had to cancel. We tried again this year and were not disappointed! My husband got the Beef Bourguignon which was very hardy and rich; full of beefy flavor! I got the New Year's special of scallops and risotto. Super yummy! I decided against the mussels for an appetizer; we had passed a table that had a HUGE bowl of mussels! I'll get those the next time; maybe for dinner (sadly, my husband has developed a shell fish allergy). Berry Crepe for desert was light, yummy and just right after a large meal! My husband said the coffee he had w/desert was very good; a true sign of a good restaurant! A little pricey but perfect for a special date night!

Most of the food for our big party was really good. The herbs on the escargot were too heavy and the vegetarian dish was too heavy with cream. Otherwise great food.
We waited a long time for our food.
Great place and we will return again but probably only with 2-4 people.

Enjoyed everything about the experience. Our waiter was exceptional and friendly. Nice to be able to have a conversation without having to scream.
Only food down side was the Crispy Chicken was covered with a sauce which took away the Crispy.
Very laid back and enjoyable

Bon Ami is our go-to for a great neighborhood spot serving wonderful French cuisine in a very quaint atmosphere offering very friendly, casual service! Their sister restaurant, La Merise in Cherry Creek North is just as great! We have recommended both to friends and have received rave reviews!

Delicious! We're veteran France travelers and have spent nearly five months in Paris in the past four years and Bon Ami brings us as close to Paris as we're going to get here in Denver. We had entree and dessert crepes that were just top notch, right along with excellent wines. It was our first visit, but we'll be back!

Early to arrive, we got to enjoy a very French corner of the restaurant...warm lamps, an intimate space for conversation. The escargot were perfect...just enough parsley, butter, and garlic on warm bread for my friend. (I'd love GF bread for me.;-) The Beef Bourguignon is outstanding!--full of flavor, lots of GF sauce, large, tender chunks of meat, and divine mashed potatoes, with a crisp, tasty salad to accompany. It was the perfect winter meal!

The menu is fantastic - this is our favorite "French" restaurant. They have so many things to select from on the menu it will take awhile to try the many delicious sounding dishes. This was our second visit and we hope to have many, many more. Jaymus took excellent care of us and we will definitely ask for him next time we go. Go try for yourself! It's wonderful.

So delicious! Attention to detail was outstanding. Food was amazing and very complex and presented well with outstanding flavors. From the Escargot to Beet Salad to Sea Bass to Bananas Foster and lovely French Kiss...this is my new favorite French restaurant. So many other great choices on the menu...can’t wait to come back! A neighborhood gem is an understatement!

Overall this restaurant was excellent. The server was very kind and we never felt rushed yet always tended to. The food was delicious. Although the French onion soup wasn’t my favorite of all times, it’s certainly worth eating. The crepes were also really good. Stopped myself from licking the sauce off the plate!
