We visited Chez Moi on Valentine's Day weekend after a matinee at the Steppenwolf and enjoyed it immensely. We started with the escargot pastry and split the French onion soup and both were delicious. Our main courses, Cassoulet Toulousain & Boef Bourguignon, were excellent and paired well with the Chateau St. Bernard Bourdeaux. Service was good. Our only issue was we felt a bit rushed at first but the server slowed things down upon our request.

I made reservations for Valentine’s Day. At first the hostess was very accommodating, but when we sat the waitstaff was not. We couldn’t put in our appetizer order unless we put in our entrees at the same time. They tried taking my over half full drink multiple times through out the night. Then gave us the check before we could see a dessert menu. I understand it’s a busy night and you have to turn tables, but I would have liked to sit down for more that 45 minutes to enjoy my night.

My wife and I went here for the first time in Saint Valentine’s Day. The place was really crowded and pretty hectic, but the wait staff handled everything pretty smoothly and we didn’t wait and in ordinate amount of time for anything.

She had skate and I had beef Bourguignon and they were both perfect. The place itself gives off the same vibe as many of the small restaurants have in Paris.

We both agree that we have found our new favorite place. Can’t wait to come back

From the moment I walked in the door to the moment Chad wished me a good night, the experience was warm and inviting, as if I was going over to someone’s home for dinner. They managed this even on a busy Friday night.

The food is outstanding. Well executed French classics. I expect nothing less from Chef Dominique. I cane for the Cassoulet but was talked into the Boeuf Bourgogne and was not disappointed.

I will be coming back, as often as possible.

What a great place and value for brunch. The only disappointment was the crème brûlée and gateau Breton in the dessert sampler. On the platter they had two teaspoons of what look like it was the crème brûlée, very strange presentation. It should have been in a small ramekin not on some teaspoons!!Hopefully we didn’t eat somebody’s leftover! Also the gateau Breton was very small, like one bite!

Food quality was outstanding and good value for money, especially the prix fixe menu for restaurant Week. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Great for pre-theater or post-theater for matinees. Have been there several times and would go back.

We were a part of 10 adults who were there Friday Feb 8. 3 of us ordered the restaurant week fixed price menu and the other 7 ordered first and second courses from the ala carte menu, cocktails and wines. The cocktails and appetizers arrived in a timely manor and were good. However our main courses arrived one hour after apps were cleared and 1 hour and 45 minutes after we sat down and half were barely warm. We figured it was a kitchen error since 2 tables of 6 who arrived after us , had their dinners finished before we had our mains. Ok, every restaurant had glitches but it is how they deal with them that shows their class. On leaving I asked to speak with the manager. Told him it was inexcusable it was 1 and a half hours after we sat down to get our mains and I felt the kitchen had lost our order. He belligerently denied The order was lost and said it was just a misplaced paper with the order for the mains ( what????) and what did we expect, a party of 10 on a Friday during restaurant week. He said we should have ordered the price fixed menu. No one told us that and gave us ala carte menus. I told him no problem since there were a million restaurants in Chicago snd we didn’t need this one. He snarkily corrected me that there were 3500 restaurants in Chicago. The conversation ended with me calling him a disgrace and him calling me one. A good restaurant had glitches and all we wanted was an acknowledgment and apology, what we got was an aggressive and arrogant put down . No problem since there are 3500 other restaurants in Chicago,

We went during restaurant week and had a great meal. the room is fine although nothing spectacular. But the regular menu had so many great French dishes. And our prix fixe meal was delicious, especially the beef wellington which is not on the regular menu. The creme caramel was also the perfect consistency and flavor. We can't wait to go back and try other dishes on the menu. The escargot en crout looked especially good.

Many visits always happy. Food is very good.
We usually split a desert but in Chez Moi each
of us gets his own, so good.

Take advantage of Restaurant Week as Chef Dominique is serving traditional beef Wellington. It is outstanding, and this is possibly the best French restaurant in the city. Independently owned. Support your local businesses. Note to Chef: please offer beef Wellington as a take home holiday meal/prep with all the trimmings for next Christmas!

We decided to try Chez Moi during restaurant week. Each course was outstanding. My husband had the lobster bisque and I had the beet salad as a first course. Very good. Next, we both chose the Beef Wellington as our main course and it was wonderful. The foie gras pate and mushroom duxelle surrounding the beef tenderloin was so delicious. For dessert I had the creme brulee which was served warm instead of cold like most places. It tasted as though it had just been prepared, and so delicious. I love that they serve it warm. My husband had the Gateau Breton which was to die for. I had never heard of this dessert, but now I can't stop thinking about it. It was absolutely incredible. Upon perusing the menu, I could see a host of other dishes I would love to try. I can't wait for a return visit.

I was not impressed with the time it took to receive service initially. It took a while to get a drink to the table (other than water). Towards the end of my meal, a large group of noisy individuals sat next to my table. There wasn’t any type of a buffer!

Cozy, friendly, service is good, the food was fantastic.

My only complaint is that the restaurant is crowded, the tables are very close together and that guy at the next table was very close to me.

I was with my daughter and decided to try the restaurant week menu. We were early for our reservation and they seated us immediately. My choices were lobster bisque, beef Wellington and creme brûlée. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. I would definitely go back.
