This is a lovely, unpretentious spot where it's possible to show up in jeans and get a really fine French meal. Hubby and I went to celebrate his birthday before a concert at the Athenaeum. We went early, at 5 p on a Sunday night, which probably helps with the noise level. Service was attentive without being intrusive. We had the best time, and we will be back!

We loved our meal and the whole experience! We had the special Beef Wellington and the Steak au Poivre. Both were cooked to perfection mined came out perfectly medium rare), with rich layered tastes! The server was knowledgeable and friendly and timed the meal perfectly. The whole ambiance was casual but elegant and happy. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Delicious French cuisine. Had the beet salad, lamb and chocolate mousse. The beets could've been a little sweeter, but otherwise they were fine. The lamb was delicious and tender. I dreamt about the chocolate mousse for days after. My husband had the onion tart, scallops and bread pudding. He thoroughly enjoyed everything he ate. I would definitely love to go back here and try more of the menu.

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.

I was very disappointed by the food.
No flavor, not enough salt and food cold when coming to the table. The lack of flavor really disappointed me and this restaurant should have better quality. It used to...
We did however like the crème brûlée. BUT it does not need extra sugar on top!! I am French and have expectations. It seems the food was better in the past. Did you change chefs?
I will not go back except for dessert only!

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.
