I have dined around the globe (including in France), & this was one of the best meals ever, from start to finish. Great cocktails while we waited for a patio table, enchanting ambiance both in & out, the patio sparkled with lights among the trees & bushes. Onion strudel is a must have, mussels, sauteed greens, & gratin were fantastic. Great wine & beer list, attentive server, gracious management. Would return (from out of town) in a heartbeat!

What a wonderful French bistro. Their food is delicious, wine selection superb, and service impeccable. I loved the ambiance, and atmosphere contributed to a great dinner with friends.

My boyfriend and I celebrated the new year at this adorably quaint restaurant. It was our first visit and we could not have been more pleased. They were absolutely full during our entire visit (New Years Eve) but we still received wonderful service and attention. It is a small place which makes it feel warm and cozy. Both of us had exquisite meals and the wine AND beer list were awesome. Considering the quality of the food, and the service, we thought the prices were exceptional. We have spent MUCH more out in Chicago and have not received such delicious food or excellent service. We will be returning when the weather is warmer to enjoy another wonderful meal outside!!

Pros: value, service, ambience

We loved this place. Our server was French- not that it mattered, but it did add to the authenticity of the experience. The chicken was juicy and delicious. Wine list was not extensive, but they have a decent selection. Romantic atmosphere in a hot neighborhood!

Pros: Great atmosphere & food is solid

Cons: Can feel a bit cramped with a party of 4 or more

.

I thoroghly enjoyed the decor of Bistrot Compagne, and the layout of the menu seemed appealing. However, I felt the service was average to poor, and the food unimpressive. I ordered a ketel one and tonic, they were out of ketel one. We were the first table on a Saturday...mmmm. The leg of lamb came out warm on a plate of cold rice, and the rice was NOT supposed to be cold. The souffle took twenty minutes to come out and it was so unimpressive. Our tab for 4 was $151 with tip. I want to give them another chance, but there's no way I would pay this much for so little effort. This place should not be a 9+ rated restaurant. Go to Bistrot Zinc downtown instead.

Pros: Environment

Cons: Food, Price, Service

Wine selection, ambience, and quality of food is superior. This is place that knows how to treat any restaurant goer, whether it's a regular, a casual diner, or a special occasion crowd. Valet available but mostly not necessary.

PROS: Chicken is Out of the This World
CONS: None

Unremarkable restaurant serving heavy-handed interpretations of classic French bistro fare in an uninspired ambience. Desserts, despite French names appear to resemble those found at American casual chains like Applebee's or TGI Friday's. Signature chocolate souffle presentation was closer to lava cake -- with an unmelted chocolate center! I would not go out of my way to visit this restaurant again.

Dine on Friday 9/30/05, they don't take reservations, arrived around 8pm, didn't get seated until almost 10pm. Escargot and mussel soup were salty. Menu repertoire included lamb, rabit. I ordered Moulard duck and was advised that the chef would NOT cook it over medium. The redish pink fleshy duck breast over a dark fruity reduction came. Liked the more-cooked ends but the middle part was unbearable. I consider myself a hardcore eater-carpaccio, kobe beef, sushi/sashimi (sea urchins, natto) I've had a flesh of a flickering flounder at Heat...I love my steaks rare but I'm embarrassed to day I didn't finish my plate. We weren't having too much fun that we skipped dessert. If you're dining there on a Friday, arrive early.

Pros: Ambience, Exotic menu

Cons: Wait time during peak

I do not understand why this place has such a good review. It is horrible from the service to the food right down to the prices. Save your time and money and dine somewhere else.

Love the chicken dish but not very excited about the price. Overall the food was very good and the wine list rocked.

Pros: intimate, friendly staff

I went to dinner on a Wednesday night, no occasion to celebrate and the evening turned into one of the most memorable dinners I've had in recent years. The food was tremendous, basic bistro fare:goat cheese salad is the best. The wine recommendation was the perfect addition to our meal. The desert was perfect. The server was spectacular. We sat in the couryard area which is perfect in the summer. Perfection!

Pros: all of the staff, atmosphere, outstanding food

I'm afraid to write this review, that the place will be taken over. I had brunch there recently and it was amazing, even better than another favorite, Tre Kronor. Everyone at the table agreed the food quality was outstanding (the best quiche, and best bacon I have ever had, bar none). The tables are a bit close, but the multiple small rooms feel cozy. Service was ok, not outstanding, not bad. No wait at prime time on a Sunday, which was a bonus. A little more than you'd pay somewhere else, but worth it.

1/3 of my pork chop was served raw, while the rest cooked. They need to take the table away from the door because it was freezing. The wait was not 1 hour, but 20 minutes or less. Service was infrequent and poor. The restaurant manager was arrogant, probably because of the nice crowd and great reviews.

Completely perfect - this is the most exquisite brunch you will find in Chicago. The atmosphere is topped only by the food. Wait for a warm Sunday afternoon and sit on the terrace.

I had one of the most delicious pieces of chicken here and was slightly disappointed by the small cheese selection (they call it cheese selection and then you can hardly find the cheese amongst the tons of fruit, crackers, nuts and other paraphernalia). The dining room has suffered from the addition of the bar, although the selection of wines there is original. The garden remains great and is a definite selling point.

Editorial from

Campagne has stayed true to its original form over the years to remain a simple, organic bistro---not to mention a neighborhood favorite. Its cozy, woody decor and compact, mostly French menu wisely stays affordable---a fact that proves…
