Chez Moi Ratings and Reviews
The food was not very good. Everyone at our table had a fish entree, the salmon had an extreme fishy flavor and the skate wing did not taste fresh. The food was too heavy and did not exhibit a lot of skill. Appetizers and desserts were not much better. Everyone was very nice, it's a very cute spot, but unfortunately the food was not good at all. There are much better places to eat in that area.
Classic French Bistro in the truest sense. The kind of place you find in Paris and return to every evening of every trip. From the crusty bread to the fabulous last bite of perfectly prepared brunch Benedict (my husband had classic, I had crab) the meal was divine.
A Lincoln Park gem and totally worth the trek from The Loop. Can't wait to go back for dinner.
Authentic French bistro in Lincoln Park. Good for families as well as date night and friends' get togethers. Wide ranging French wine list by the glass and bottle. Attentive service, and chef/owner also can be seen in the dining room visiting with guests. Street parking available as well as valet
Chicago for Thanksgiving, we wanted to try something new rather than old favorites. Chez Moi took over the old Cafe Bernard space (sadly, never ate at that former Lincoln Park classic) and offered a great prix fixe deal that was hard to resist. My companion had French Onion Soup, Turkey and creme brulee while I opted for the quiche entree, Cassoulet Toulousain and chocolate mousse. Everything was excellent but the cassoulet exceeded most that I have had in Toulouse ... the sauce was a lighter olive oil and tomato, rather than heavier creamy gravy, and the meat (duck, sausage, lamb) was excellent quality in reasonable proportions. Neither of us were overfull and enjoyed our desserts with coffees. Next to us, one of that party had the steak frites and recommended it highly, so that will definitely be something to try on our next visit!
We’ve eaten our Thanksgiving dinner here for the past 4 years. Along with a choice of appetizers you get a traditional turkey dinner plus a delicious dessert. The French Onion Soup is the best I’ve ever had, and the Chocolate Mousse was delicious. Service was excellent and for $42.00 each, the meal is a good value. We’ ll be back next Thanksgiving for #5.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal at Chez Moi - the food was excellent although the desserts felt a little like they had come out of the freezer, not totally unexpected since they were very busy! I would definitely recommend the place - easy to talk and great service.
This was prix fixe Thanksgiving—there were enough other choices or you could just do the turkey special. Large portions; very good food value. We had to ask for bread and the desserts never came with forks, but otherwise service was very good. Dine in now to get $15 off coupons to use at a Xmas Eve or New Year’s Eve dinner!
I always like to go to Chez Moi for special occasions. It is very good food at a correct price point. Taking about basic bistro food, but often with a nice spin. The wine list is very good. The ambience is nice. Whenever I go there I am asking myself why I don’t go there more often.
We were attending a lecture at nearby Floating World Gallery and with an early reservation we enjoyed a warm welcome, good wine and excellent authentic French cooking. The ambiance is chic, clean and warm with lovely art and French music. Lighting perfect!
We started with wine to take the chill off a rainy, miserable night. The Crabcake in lobster bisque pool starter was magnifique! The pris fixe meal offering at $45 was perfect. It afforded choice of salad or soup, choice of entree, dessert choice and generous glass of Beaujolais!
That evening the entree we chose was coq au vin; every morsel and drop was tasty! The rustic bread also on table sopped up every trace!
This was a highly recommended spot (Yelp)that we were lucky to discover. Reservations would be a good idea!

Wonderful French Food. The best French Onion soup in the city. We both had the Steak Frites and the sauce on the steaks was remarkable. Nice tender steaks, frites were nice and thick, cooked right, loved the seasoning. Friendly service. A hidden gem in this city.
Good food undermined by poor service. The wait staff disappeared for 7-15 minutes at a time. We were drinking a superior bottle of Bordeaux and found ourselves pouring it as our glasses emptied, we had long waits between courses, got completely forgotten about after our meal and finally had the host bring us dessert menus and ask if we wanted coffee. The wait staff spent an inordinate amount of time chatting among themselves. Disappointing.
Lastly, when they would clear the table between courses they did not wipe it down...they would set the next plates down in the debris on the table. Unprofessional.
There was an extraordinary long wait between first course and our entree. When my food arrived it was slightly different than my sister's dish which was the same order. The menu said the chicken came with vegetables and mashed potatoes. I had no mashed potatoes at all on my plate. She had potatoes. Though our server was nice, he seemed to be doing too many things at once. I ordered a rose wine. He brought a red. Again he was nice and corrected it but seemed to be overloaded with things he was doing.
Dominique always comes through on the food, mussels, onion soup, and short ribs for us. Very cozy atmosphere with just the right amount of buzz. And now there's a very cool speakeasy in the back, Ooh La La. Ring the doorbell on Dickens for entrance and get transported back in time. Chez Moi is a true neighborhood gem.
