    The food is fantastic, the wine selection is great but you get sit so close to others specially in back room that it's hard to carry a conversation if you have to speak louder than the 6inch apart next table. God special occasion you get a mini dessert, but to my surprise I was charge for it. If I knew that I would order something I like instead. Lots of parking.

    We were seated in a back room next to a table with noisy children. the table was against a wall off windows. i was going to sit with my right arm to the wall since my husband and i are both right handed but he wanted to face out, does not like facing a wall. the host pulled the table out a bit to give him more room. That little touch was appreciated and diffused a uncomfortable start to our meal. I also appreciate the gluten free menu and getting to enjoy bread with my meal. We both enjoyed our meals.

    For our group the menu was limited plus you were out of your tenderloin medallions, the special of the day and that is what my granddaughter wanted. She wound up with an average house salad and onion soup which she did not care for. Two of us had salmon which was ok, the bread was fabulous.

    No joy in this place- cold and/or non existent welcome which continued with waiter. Food nothing that could not be done at home. Wine list overpriced more than normal and corkage is $25. why not make it $100 - same result. I have been going to Lettuce restaurants for 40 years and this is the worst. Will never return.

A party was going on in the private room and because of this our server was almost non-existent.Took awhile to order a beverage.Took awhile to place our order.Lunch came, brought by someone else.Server never came by to check on us.Difficult to get iced tea refills.Server appeared,brought dessert menu and then disappeared again.Finally, he returned, we didn't opt for dessert and asked for the check.That took awhile.We understood that a special event was going on, but the regular customers should not have been ignored.

    Always walked by, and never stopped in - so I am kicking myself for not trying this sooner. Enjoyed a lovely dinner, wine, and even desert. The service was very friendly and helpful...brought me a sample of wine she thought I'd like so I could taste "side by side" with the one I ordered. My only complaint is that the tables (near a window) were rather close together - had to keep "scooting" for the waitstaff to get by. All in all, we very much enjoyed the experience and plan to return!

    I often meet people for business lunch in Oak Brook and this is one of my regular spots. In this case, my guest cancelled at the last minute but I stayed on for lunch. The red pepper & cucumber gazpacho was superb. With a salad and the great baguette, a perfect lunch. The server was attentive too. What a nice lunch!

    My wife and I dined here post theatre and had an enjoyable meal. We were offered an amuse of fennel salad which I enjoyed and some delicious crust french bread. I had a Kale salad and my wife a standard salad and both were tasty. My wife's vegetarian plate was good, but some of the items were 86'd which the wait staff informed us beforehand, so no biggie. I had salmon which was cooked almost perfectly. They side veg with two kinds of asparagus and (I think) thyme was intriguing. We shared a blueberry crepe with mint... terrific. We appreciated the free valet parking, too. Overall, a nice meal which met expectations.

    Booked a reservation at Mon Ami Gabi to celebrate my wife's birthday. We'd eaten at Mon Ami Gabi in the D.C. area on several occasions and my wife loves their skate wing. The hour drive from our home to the Oak Brook center location proved well worth it. The meal was excellent and lived up to all our expectations.

  • BEST outdoor dining in Oak Brook!!
    BdinesVIP

    Mon Ami Gabi's outdoor cafe trumps all the others! It's like a cafe within a Parisian bistro, and that can only be described as spectacular. There's nowhere else to relax and enjoy company and one's meal without seeing a single automobile, as Mon Ami Gabi has their outdoor area surrounded by bushes and greenery. Every table was taken on Saturday, yet the vibe was lively, uncluttered and our server was attentive and helpful. What's best about the food is the freshness of the vegetables and the presentation of the dishes. The lobster roll is delish and the new strawberry cake is delightful. They have THE best warm baguettes served west of France. Munching on a baguette with butter & fresh jam while awaiting ones entree is just wonderful!

    I went to the Mon Ami Gabi in Oakbrook, IL for lunch with a friend. I had been there before, but it had been quite a while. The food and service were excellent. I had the macaroni and it was delicious. One of the best. The waiter was very attentive. It was my friend's birthday, and I thought they might do someythng special for it, but they did not. The parking is atrocious as it is flanked by Maggiano's on one side and another restaurant on the other. There is valet parking for $4.00 which is almost a necessity as even though I have a handicap sticker, there was no place to park. I now remember why I do not come here very often.

    Enough offerings on the menu to provide you with a great meal, whether you like seafood, fish or meat, but not too much on the vegetarian side. Good wine offerings, but my choice, at $13 a glass, should have been a more generous pour vs. what looked like 5.5 oz. Service is always very good, and servers are all friendly. Not bad for a French place :)

    Had a very good experience this past Friday. Had a 6:30 reservation, arrived 15 minutes early but were seated right away. Christoff(sp) our server was very attentive to our needs and even as the restaurant filled up with diners, he made his way to our table on a regular basis. The salmon special was excellently prepared, the Roquefort steak was cooked to perfection. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience.
