My partner’s scallops were delicious as was the soup and our appetizer. My pork tenderloin, however, was terrible. It was extremely dry and the potatoes were lukewarm. The waiter never made it by to check in on how our meal was, so I did not have a chance to share my displeasure. Therefore, he did not have a chance to make it right. I left feeling dissatisfied after spending $150. One should never feel dissatisfied after spending that much money on a meal—that is a week’s worth of groceries. Not sure Chez Moi will be on my list again.

Adorable spot with amazingly attentive service. Outdoor seating must be lovely in nice weather. Nice wine list, cute bar and pleasant background music. Food was good- we ordered pretty pedestrian starters,entrees and desserts, but there were tastier sounding options to try on next visit.

Their back room is dreadful. Uncomfortable, packed and entirely way too bright. For the food, I could’ve made a better onion tart, their fries were soggy, and the vegetarian casoulet was flavorless and unimaginative. Our server was lovely though.

Anniversary dinner. Shared the Duck entree, the escargot and garlic bulb appetizers, the special beet and truffle salad, and the creme brûlée and chocolate mousse for dessert. French 75s were excellent. Great meal, and good service.

Because hubby loves cassoulet, we decided to try Chez Moi. It was definitely worth it. The cassoulet was AMAZING. I had the Boeuf Bourguignon. It also was mouth-watering.
Since this was the day after Valentine's Day, they had some of their specials still available, like their Foie Gras Terrine was one of the best we ever had.
It is a fun place where people enjoy themselves. If you are expecting a small quiet intimate romantic restaurant, skip this. If you want to enjoy the atmosphere, the food and service, you must try this.

Went in for Chicago restaurant week and the ambiance was great, I loved it! I had the salmon tart with arugula which was a bigger portion than i expected which was pleasantly surprising and then I had the trout as the main course which was buttery, garlic goodness! For dessert I had creme brûlée which was great but my friend had the other dessert, it was a cake and it was fantastic!

Service was not good. We sat for 15 mins before being attended to. Food was hit and miss. Two of the dishes were good, two were not The duck sandwich tasted like the duck was old-- like they were trying to get rid of it by covering it in sauce.

We went to the restaurant after a matinee play so we were there early.
We found the food and the drinks to be excellent. I had the stuffed pork chop which I will certainly have again. My wife and fish and loved it.
The restaurant is a nice size and the noise level is perfect for conversation.
Highly recommend this place.

The night started out with no valet parking during a snow storm and so perhaps are experience was tainted by that. Food was bland. I had mussels and risotto both of which were lacking flavor. Our waiter recommended the mussels and they fell short . My husband had the duck which he greatly enjoyed.

Ate tonight.the meal started off strange. We felt like we were being rushed but we slowed it down. The server seemed nervous but provided top notch service. We started off with soup. Wife had the French onion which was excellent I had the lobster bisque which was excellent as well. Oh and the Martinis were great.This is where things changed. I ordered the steak special she ordered the salmon dish. It seemed like we ordered from two different restaraunts. The Salmon was some of the best I have ever tasted. The steak was some of the worst. It was cooked to med rare which I like but was very fatty with no seasoning. A little salt would have helped but not saved the terrible piece of meat. I was expecting Bistro 110 quality of Steak and Frites for a steak and Frites special. It wasn't. I was shocked at the sizzler quality of the steak special. I didn't finish it. Back to the Salmon. That dish was phenomal. I wish the steak was that good

Everything was outstanding the only thing that was a bit questionable was the size of the onion tart, I believe it used to be much bigger. It’s always my favorite part of my meal there-needless to say it was still incredible as was my skate fish entree! The Brittany Cake with fromage ice cream and caramel sauce-second to none!!! My favorite French Restaurant In the city!

Great food and good service. Had a little trouble with gluten free options—it took too long to offer a gf version of risotto, and when it arrived it was undercooked, not creamy. The rest of the meal was good, though my son contended with a lot of bones in his fish. We’ll definitely return.

I wish we would have tried Chez Moi sooner!!! The food was outstanding and we’ll definitely be back! The only disappointment was the Bistro 110 roasted garlic, which is nothing like it was at Bistro 110. But now we know and won’t order it again!

I was most excited about the appetizers when I looked at the menu. They were average at best for me. I expected deep, savory flavors and got somewhat watery, acidic results on virtually every one. The entrees, however, exceeded expectations and were excellent. The desserts were even better. Excellent value priced wine lists. I will be back.
