Mon Ami Gabi
Great service and delicious foodService started out on the right foot with the hostess and manager quickly taking care of me and my party when I realized I made my Open Table reservation on the wrong day. The manager insisted that I make a new reservation for that night so I wouldn't lose out on my points.
The food is delicious and decadent. Come to Mon Ami only if you plan on indulging.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper French bistroI wish this place was in my building! Love the food and atmosphere.

I have been coming to Chicago at least 2-3 times a year for the past 23 year and rarely ventured off of Michigan Ave and the neigboring Restaurants. The Lincoln Park area is beautifual and Mon Ami Gabi is fantastic. It was like being in a true French Bistro in Paris! I listed the Nise Level as "Energetic" as it was very busy and numerous conversations were flying around the restaurant... but that is what you find in Paris! The food was very well prepared and delicious, and the staff was fabulous! I will definately make Mon Ami Gabi one of my new favorites.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasant evening...We've been to Mon Ami Gabi many times and it never disappoints. Reasonably authentic French bistro atmosphere, excellent service and delightful food. Part of the "French" atmosphere is sitting next to folks one doesn't know and who may be a tad "interesting" - but that can add some spice to the meal, as well. Definitely recommended.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful French eveningWe had a delightful dinner at this French restaurant. Went there after an early play in the area and it was just what one would expect from an excellent French bistro. They split the onion soup we were sharing for us so there was enough cheese for all. The steak frite was excellent and the creme brule delicious. The service was prompt and friendly. It was a memorable evening for our special weekend in Chicago.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently PerfectI have been going to this restaurant for 15+ years and have never been disappointed.

They offer delicious, well prepared and presented French bistro cuisine in a warm, busy atmosphere. Winter or summer, indoors or on the patio, Mon Ami Gabi can be counted on to please.

It is our "go-to" for Sunday early dinner when friends are visiting (they open at 5pm). The skate wing is delicious, the oysters are always wonderful, the caesar salad is divine, but it is the Beef Wellington (often on the specials menu) that surpasses them all!!!! C'est magnifique!
The atmosphere is cosy with lots of dark wood in a Paris brasserie style and they have a lovely outdoor area in the summer months. Formidable!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love dining at MonI always love dining at Mon Ami Gabi. Everything from the service, to the food, to the atmosphere is always wonderful. My recent visit to Mon Ami Gabi did not disappoint either - I was with a friend to celebrate her birthday and we both had wonderful dinners and shared a great bottle of wine (fabulous recommendation from our server, since neither of us are great with French wines) and because it was my friend's birthday we were comped to an AMAZING array of desserts!
