The cheese board and evening specials were delicious- braised sea bass and a stuffed ravioli in a red sauce.

We enjoyed hearing the specials and suggestions from Mike and I hope to visit again.

Due to inflation and the increased costs of shipping and perishables it makes sense why the meal was a little pricey.

We had the best French food that we have had anywhere in Denver for a very long time. Great menu. Wonderful wine list.

Great spot in Denver for an intimate date with excellent food. I think you can’t go wrong ordering classics - we did the mussels, cheese plate, french onion soup, and steak frites. Everything was delicious. We were seated in the very back which made for a cozy and private-seeming experience. Good wine and good service. I would definitely come here again for a date or for the happy hour with friends just to show off what good taste I have.

This was my second time at Bon Ami and it was just as wonderful as the first. All the food has been fantastic - the crispy chicken topped with fine herb butter is amazing! But so is the salmon gravaux... The service has been attentive and helpful both times as well. Highly recommend!

Overall our experience at Bon Ami was mixed.

We had a reservation, but we weren’t greeted and seated for several minutes. Once our order was taken it took 20 minutes or longer for our appetizer to be served.

As for the food, the appetizer was good, but the main course was a little less than to be expected. We had the filet mignon and it wasn’t as tender as it should have been, and the vegetables looked and tasted thrown together. I ordered wine with the appetizer, and would have liked a second glass with my entree but was never asked if I wanted one.

I want to preface this review with the note that we have always had great experiences with Bon Ami and believe this was an off evening. It was restaurant week and we should have avoided, they were trying to accommodate the regulars and also make room for the new folks here for restaurant week. We ordered off of the regular menu and both our dinner entrees were noticeably different than we are accustomed. The Paris chicken was more like a schnitzel -without much of the usual sauce or delicious flavor. My husband's Bœuf Bourgignon was overwhelmed with mash potatoes and served without the usual amount of beef and sauce. The waiter was attentive but overwhelmed dealing with a loud and possibly intoxicated belligerent customer that was disrupting the entire front of the restaurant for over 30 minutes. The evening was less than pleasant but I do not believe it was representative of the usual Bon Ami. We will return when it is not restaurant week.

The food and ambiance were really delicious. If you love eggs benedict I recommend asking the server for a soft poach on the egg if you get the benedict crepes during brunch. Looking forward to going back to try dinner next time.

Indoor seating was loud so we were seating in a tight corner. Service was slow considering most of the clientele was finishing their food when my wife and I arrived. I found it strange the servers only spoke to my wife and ignored me. Food was a bit overrated.

as always , the quiet atmosphere is very nice to have a conversation. the food was outstanding -- i would order from the main menu rather than the restaurant week specials - better selection in my opinion. if you are looking for fine french food in a nice small cozy out-of-the way place -- this is it! My wife spent several years in France and this is her favorite.

Our family of five dined at Bon Ami on April 25th during restaurant week. What a charming restaurant! I love old buildings and felt like I was in France. The four course dinner was delicious! We all had the mussels with the garlic sauce for an appetizer, the French Onion Soup and Salad Maison were fabulous, and three entrees were ordered: Almond-crusted trout, which my son loved, Chicken Croquettes, reported as very tasty, and three of us had the Beef Bourguignon, which was tender, with a flavorful sauce, enjoyed by all. Chocolate Mousse and Creme Brulee for dessert were parfait!! Service was outstanding!! Polite, attentive, but not intrusive. We dined inside, which was lovely and comfortable, but plan to return in the future for a brunch on Bon Ami's lovely patio. Merci, Bon Ami!!

The food was horrible. Worst crepes I’ve ever had in my life. Fishy, chlorinated-tasting crab, over-poached eggs, tomatoe sauce that may as well be campbells condensed soup, all drenched over a soggy, thick crepe, that is smothered in luke-warm cheese.

Absolutely terrible all the way around. My mother is French and would be absolutely appalled that this is even called French food.

Don’t even get me started about the rude hostess and the constant musical chairs of dragging heavy patio umbrellas around my table. The hostess didn’t seem to notice the fact that she kept moving the umbrella, effectively blinding my wife, so I had to get up and move the umbrellas myself multiple times. They were setting up umbrellas for a party that hadn’t even showed up yet. I mean come one, at least take care of your existing patrons. Worst place I’ve dined in Denver so far.
