    We had a waitress we had never had before....very hurried, not an appropriate service person for a restaurant of this caliber. More at home in a diner! Very disappointing as we usually have great, friendly service and especially love the French waiters.

    We had a lettuce entertainment giftcard. Generally we are not impressed with these restaurants so we decide to branch out and try one we had not been to. We had very low expectations. We figured it would be high prices, small portions and average food. We were so very surprised! The food was outstanding, the service was perfectly timed and executed and we were shocked how low our bill was considering the amount of food we received. We will be back even without the giftcard :)

    Fabulous service, great choices. I always order the salmon salad on spinach with blueberries and walnuts. Can't be beat. My friend always selects different items and is never disappointed. She had an egg dish and took half home, as the portion was substantial. We celebrated her birthday with delicious profiteroles. Yum.

    One of my favorite restaurants in the Oakbrook Mall. Our steak frites with Dijon butter sauce and French green beans was melt in your mouth. The French bread is beyond delicious and there is a nice selection of wines. Great service - special kudos to Debbie who is par excellence! From the time you walk in at Reception and are warmly greeted, this is a wonderful experience.

    I have been to this restaurant several times, and have always enjoyed the service and the food. The trout in brown butter is excellent, it never fails to impress. My dining partner had the New York Strip, and it was one of the best steaks he had ever eaten. It is not cheap to eat here, but it is definitely worth the price.

    French onion soup is always very tasty, generous, and if sharing, they split the soup into two separate containers, each with it's own cheese. This is the first time I got the steak-frits (one of the most popular items on the menu) The frits were great and the steak was flavored well (albeit a bit chewy & tough, but after all , it is NOT a filet) My partner's (Sunday special) beef wellington was delicious. Our server was available, and helpful.

    My favorite restaurant is no more; corporate decisions have turned a previously French oriented menu to one that's not even ordinary. Fish paillard is no more, skate wing has a really odd presentation, starters are few (where did that good tapenade go?), and the "Grand Profitterole" is not just sacrelegious; it is appalling (several diners at nearby tables just scraped the ice cream out of the shell (?) and left it on the plate.) Wish the corporate chef would visit a real French bistro and take some lessons and return Mon Ami to its previous form so that I would want to return. We are long time diners here.

    Dined on 9/8/2014
    I arrived promptly but was ignored (staff mtg.). A waiter told me they were still setting up and it would take a few minutes. Then another gentleman seated the three reservations behind me. We sat outside at a small table but moved to a larger table due to the sun. The waiter voiced his displeasure that we took a larger table even though there was plenty of seating at the time. It took apx. 15 minutes for a waiter to take our order. I ordered a salad. The seared tuna and greens were very fresh but it tasted boring. I ordered a dessert to split and the waiter probably didn't hear me and brought two desserts. The dessert was incredible (bananas foster)! Before I left, I noticed parties of 2 at other larger tables outside.

    Fortunately this was not our first time here as there were problems with the air conditioning, water leaking through ceiling tiles, open doors due to the problem (despite the heat), and half of the restaurant not available for seating. The food was fine, we had the lamb special, but we've had better cuisine there and it was quite pricy for the size of the main course which was bony and disappointing. It was a hot night and you could see the stress on the employees--they should have closed and not subjected anyone to the existing condition.
