This is a great restaurant for a date night or a special occasion. The food was amazing and I would absolutely go back just for that. The service was attentive but not overly obnoxious like some places can get when they pester you too much. We were sitting next to a couple that said that both of their beef was over cooked, but that was after both of them finished their entire plates. So, I don't know how much weight that actually holds. The two of us were both very pleased with our meals. I would absolutely recommend to others looking for a quaint place that serves french cuisine.

Food was great, the beef bourguignon/braised short ribs was excellent. The staff was wonderful, everyone was super friendly. Nice and cozy place! We did enjoy the taste of our cocktails (the Ooh La La was great!), but for a really small cocktail glass that was maaaaaybe almost halfway full, it was REALLY expensive ($14) for what you get - a few sips. But overall, we did enjoy our experience there and would go back.

Food was excellent, however, our waiter had an attitude. Tried to rush us thru ordering even though we told him we didn’t want to be rushed. No less than 6 times did he interrupt us in the middle of a conversation we were trying to have with our group . After taking our order he came back confused as to what we ordered. This happened because he rushed us while taking our order. Have been to Chez Moi numerous times and never had this problem. In fact, our previous waiters were extremely enjoyable. Hopefully if there is a next time we won’t get the same service person.

An outstanding experience. The server steered us to the right bottle of wine . The onion tart (looks like a flatbread pizza, tastes like an onion tart) was very good. The warm lentil salad with grilled foie gras was amazing. The cassoulet, with a perfectly cooked chicken thigh in the center, surrounded by scrumptious beans, sausage and other proteins, is must-try. Finished off the meal with raisin bread pudding that we'd recommend. Friendly and attentive service.

It was Valentines. My husband and I arrived on time. According to open table our reservation was from 5:30 to 7:30. We understand that this is a very book evening. We had know intention of spending two hours dinning. We we sat down we were given our menus. It was about 5 minutes we were asked what we wanted to have for cocktails and are you ready to order. We ordered our drinks. I felt rushed and mentioned that our reservation stated two hours. With that being said, well we are booked tonight and have over 200+reservation. I explained that our reservation stated we had two hours and would appreciate not being rushed. So my husband order the French onion soup. It literally came in 3 minutes flat. My husband wait for me to be served my lobster bisque soup. It was 14 minutes and I might add luke warm at best. If. Of course we did not return our food to the kitchen. I once again made the statement we are not in a rush. We were told “we put the order in and go by what the chief says”. So ate our meal. We were very please with the taste of the food. However, thought they were small portions. About 8 minutes into our meal the table boy asked to clear our table. I said “No” we will let you know when we want our plates cleared. We were no way finished with our main course. From there we ordered a second drink. I then said I will let you know when we will order desert. We ordered ate paid our bill. Dinner was 150 + 20% tip. We get it and don’t want minimum wage servers to suffer. I was very disappointed, the owner/waiter avoided the tables that were being treated by the same waiter and was so gracious with other table.
It doesn’t take much to be pleasant to all guest. Shame on her and shame on the restaurant for having you employees fell they need to explain that the restaurant has over two reservation. Everyone know that this is a big night for restaurants. We just want a few minutes to relax.

We were the second couple in the restaurant. They tried seating us next to the only other couple in the place. The room was filled with tables that were two inches apart. When I asked to move, we had to stand awkwardly for four or five minutes by the other dining couple as the boy went to ask the manager if we could have another table in the empty restaurant. The table they moved us to was wobbly, so I folded up my napkin and shoved it under a leg. Valentine's Day menu was not on the website; so when I viewed the menu online a few hours before to familiarize myself with it I was looking at the regular menu. I had my heart set on a dish that the server told me the kitchen had, but would not serve me. I only got what I wanted after I threatened to order the $8 house salad instead of the $25 item I wanted. Other parties being seated near us asked to change tables because they couldn't pull the chair out from the adjacent table.

Duck burger was dry. Lobster appetizer was spectacular. Empty restaurant on a Saturday night; although this shouldn’t be a determining factor, it was indicative of a somewhat sad situation.

Everything about our visit to Chez Moi was amazing. I was a little nervous because my husband and I don’t eat French food often, but the food was unreal - the flavor was so good, and the ingredients so fresh. It is clear the chef loves what he does. Our server was great as well, the perfect balance between attentive and giving us space. Will definitely return.

The lobster bisque was fantastic, and the best part of the meal! The lamb shank was good, but didn't have much flavor to it. Our server was kind, but not very attentive to our table. We would definitely go back just for the lobster bisque.

We got a last minute reservation for Restaurant Week & they did NOT disappoint! My date said it was the best lobster bisque she'd ever had. My beet salad & braised lamb shank were both wonderful. The scallops were also wonderful, as was the molten chocolate cake. But I could write about the Gateau Brenton Salidou for days. It was the best dessert I have ever had. The cake had a shortbread flavor, the texture was dense & it wasn't too sweet. It was appropriately rich for the wonderful French ambiance. I will definitely return for that!
