This is my wife's favorite place for Beef Wellington, so I come here when it's on the menu. Not much room here, so be prepared to be in tight quarters. Good food at not bad prices.

Small but mighty. Having dined at many French restaurants over the years (including a now departed 5 Star restaurant in Wheeling, Le Perroquet, Les Nomads before Jovan left as well as numerous more humble bistros) I found Chez Moi to be a perfect casual venue with well prepared, traditional culinary offerings, drinkable wines and creative non-alcoholic cocktails (always a sign that someone is considering guest comfort and needs). It was my first time but I will go back.

Birthday Brunch! For my daughter, a French Major! Was fabulous on all accounts, food exceptional, service terrific, atmosphere was perfect and fun! Salmon was the best I’ve had in a long time, simple but tasty. Escargot amazing, glad we shared. Croque Madam exceptional, and of course profiteroles.... yum! Wine choices very good!!

We had an 8:15 reservation that we were early for so we had a drink at the bar, both were delicious and our table was ready quickly. Dinner was amazing, many great menu options, reasonably priced for what you get. Service was also excellent and our waitress was very helpful with my allergy.

We visited Chez Moi to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The food is classic, authentic French bistro fare, prepared elegantly and with attention to detail. The wine list is remarkably moderately priced. Can't wait to go back!

We had an early dinner for a date. We had the pick of the house for seating, which is plentiful, but not too busily spaced, throughout the restaurant. The server was most attentive - giving suggestions, informing us of the specials of the day, and in general was well informed on the menu and items. We ordered the foie gras and steak tartare for starters - both very delicious and in generous amounts. For entrees we ordered the lamb shank - which was unusually very salty, served atop couscous and and the orange duck, which was delicious and quite well made. We opted not to send the lamb shank back due to timing, and forgot to mention it to the server after the meal. For the side we ordered the creamed spinach and were happy that it was full leaves, sauteed, and served in a nice, light cream. The wine recommendations were spot on. Overall, a great experience. I would go back to try other items, though there are plenty of French restaurants in the city to explore. The ambiance were lively, and the lights were nicely dimmed for an intimate experience - it did get a little loud throughout the night, from the chatter, though it was not hard to hear someone, especially if you opted to sit next to each other.

We had a lovely time and a delicious meal. However, the ambient noise was so loud, I would have preferred a different spot in the restaurant, so I could actually hear anyone other than the person on my either side. If you can, opt for the front room.

Wow! Chez moi blew us away! Not only was the food fantastic, the service was top notch. We split the French toast as an appetizer (we like our dessert first). My mom said it was the best French toast she has ever had. Then we had the French onion soup which was INCREDIBLE. For entrees we had the steak frites, quiche, frittata, and croque monsieur. All were fantastic. We finished with the apple tarts- exquisite! Finally the mimosas were so delicious as they are made with a French liqueur. Omgosh good! Thank you for making my moms birthday one for the books!

We had a wonderful birthday celebration for my sons 25th birthday, total of 6. Had a great table in the back room which was just perfect. Food was excellent as was the atmosphere. I loved the French Onion soup to start and my wife enjoyed the beet salad. Range of dishes for dinner with folks ranging from vegetarian dishes to beef bourgeon. The highlight was the desserts although we were really too full to enjoy them as we should have. Would highly recommend.

Since Bistro Zinc’s closing this is probably my favorite bistro
All of our mains were very good and it’s a fun place
The mussels were tiny, shriveled and just not good. Even the broth was borderline bad
Sort of a big misstep for a French bistro

Chez Moi was everything I wanted and more. It was reminiscent of my time in Paris. The ambiance feels like classic Europe. The service is phenomenal, attentive yet not overbearing. I enjoyed pan-seared scallops, which were made to perfection and drizzled with lobster bisque. My sister loved the mussels special with the classic mussel fixings and the Spanish-style. I’ll definitely be back!

I love french restaurants for the frites. They are supposed to be super thin and crispy and served with a mayo based sauce. Unfortunately this was not the case at Chez Moi. Aside from this lack of authenticity, it was a cute place that I enjoyed with my friends!

It was a girls' weekend and I made reservations at Chez Moi because of a Check Please review. The restaurant did not disappoint. Our party of four each chose a different entrée. Each of us had a taste of all four and all were wonderful. Service was attentive, but not hovering. The restaurant manager stopped by to ask if we had concerns. All in all, it was a wonderful evening. I will return with my husband.

Nice spot and the chef/owner does a fabulous job with seasonal ingredients in a special and creative way. The restaurant itself is typically more quiet than others in the neighborhood, a good draw for us, and still reasonable in cost. You can enjoy a great meal, wonderful service, an innovative menu in a typically bustling neighborhood. It is even great post theater. Enjoy !!

What a pleasant experience we had last Sunday night at Chez moi :-) great service, friendly staff, nice ambience, close proximity to the Steppenwolf, but most importantly the food was absolutely delicious! Each of the four of us had something different and everyone raved about their food. The portions were very generous and we all left very satisfied. Our group recommends the duck, the skate wing, the trout and the salmon. My friend enjoyed his mussels as an appetizer and I enjoyed my beet salad. We had the bread pudding for dessert and it is definitely enough for two or three people to share. We will definitely be back

We are "regulars" at this wonderful neighborhood gem. We will continue to be. The service was unusually slow on 9/21. The server attributed this to the mussel special slowing down the kitchen.

I went for the mussels fest which is a yearly event. We started off our meal with escargot which had an interesting presentation.

For entrees I had the lobster and Spanish mussels which were both excellent. Laura had the vegetarian cassoulet which was exceptional.

Chez Moi is definitely on top of their game.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary and had a pretty good experience. The restaurant is cozy and I loved the French chateau decor (at least that's what it felt like to me). We enjoyed the escargot, which was different because it had puff pastry on top (all the better to soak up the garlic sauce). My husband loved his Chilean sea bass. I don't think the coq au vin I had was the best I've ever had but it was still very good. Our server was very efficient, but she did not acknowledge our anniversary even though I mentioned it in our reservation. We had a very nice dinner but it just lacked that special spark we've had at other special occasion dinners.
