Mon Ami Gabi - Oakbrook
Great experienceOur dinner was wonderful for an early Father's Day celebration on Sat night - we requested a corner table and got it in the main dining area - the meal was really good but the icing on the cake was the blueberry souffle...what a treat! Our server was nice and attentive as well (can't recall his name though)....but as usual Mon Ami Gabi is always a nice place to dine.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDating spotI very much enjoyed Mon Ami Gabi. My date and I each order a different fish dish; I ordered the salmon, and she ordered the Grouper. They were both done well, and the sauces with which they came were well flavored without dominating. We also ordered the escargot as an appetizer, along with the hot fresh breadroll, which was a delicious combination, as the escargot was heavily flavored with a green pestoish sauce. The service was attentive without being overbearing, helpful, and courteous. I would recommend this place for a casual dinner as well as for a tasty meal.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat nightwe always enjoy an evening at mon ami gabi.
everything was great.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWine CartThe food is always very good but I confess to coming for the wine cart. It's great to share a glass of wine with every course with a friend from their great offerings. I don't eat oysters in months without R, but Mon Ami Gabi Oak Brook's oysters are always the perfect temperature for years now, I don't know how they do that.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryIt was our anniversary and we were treated royally!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerThey gave us a very romantic corner booth, the baked goat cheese appetizer was heavenly, the chicken grand mere was excellent w/ crispy skin and wonderful mashed potatos. The bananas foster was the perfect dessert. I recommend this restaurant whole heartedly, great food at reasonable prices.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good!We had an excellent meal at Mon Ami Gabi, as always. My only complaint was that I ordered the fish special, which was excellent, but was $33.00, and was not told the price when ordering, so a bit surprised when I saw that on our bill.
I never order dessert, but had the crepe bananas foster that night, and it was out of this world.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday Dinner.Went here for my 41st birthday with my wife and 5 kids, wonderful time.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the Steak Frites!I was hunting for decent Steak Frites in the suburbs and this was the first place we tried. I see no reason to look any further.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellentI've been there for lunch...I've been there for dinner, and it is always good. Very consistent in food and service. The Lettuce Entertain You group rarely slips up. Not inexpensive, however.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTres bienI've been going to Mon Ami Gabi for years. The food and service are always wonderful, the drinks are great, and the overall ambience is delightful.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMService rated low becauseService rated low because took a very long time to get our meals. Presume it was because two large parties were occurring at the same time; however, not really a valid excuse. Otherwise, food great!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite restaurantWe love Mon Ami Gabi - the food is outstanding, service friendly and professional without being stuffy. And it's got a great vibe - Chicago laid-back - French classy.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience again. ThanksGreat experience again. Thanks for a memorable Anniversary gift...6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSatisfied as always!The menu selection and service are unsurpassed. Try the skatewing, if you haven't had it before. One of our favorite dishes, at one of our favorite places. The selection of French wines is also very broad, and you are offered a taste first.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE ONLY THING BETTER THANTHE ONLY THING BETTER THAN THE WONDERFUL FOOD, WAS BONNIE'S FABULOUS SERVICE! SHE ALWAYS SEEMS TO SENSE WHEN I NEED A DRINK REFILL OR AM READY FOR MY NEXT COURSE. I AM A VERY SLOW EATER, & THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW RESTAURANTS THAT NEVER RUSH ME.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday Night @ Mon Ami GabiOur dinner experience was a pleasant one with the food well prepared. Our waiter, friendly and informative, was helpful in suggesting a wine that went well with my wife's fish dish and my entrée which was one of their specials that evening, three beef medallions wrapped in bacon and served with fried potatoes and served with green beans. Although he encouraged us to take our time, he seemed to be interested in taking our order. We also ordered the three cheese selection appetizer which was very good. We arrived early for our reservation and planned to sit at the bar, but it is very small so seats are at a premium. However, the Blackhawks and the Red Wings were playing Game 5 of their playoff series, so that is understandable.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench BistroWith Edith Piaf singing it was like being in Paris. Not a huge room but just perfect with tablecloths and plenty of room between tables. The bread is a small loaf put on table in paper crusty and delish. Eat with the best onion soup I've ever had. Try the blue cheese salad with roasted pear and if you feel hungery enough try the appetizer smoked salmon. Prices are good. Enjoy a quiet lunch or dinner. Bon Appetite5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat baguettes!Staff very accommodating due to late guest at business lunch. Salad delicious. Best bread in town!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the new Monday specialEnjoyed the new Monday special of pork shoulder. Corn &mushroom that topped it was excellent. Almost which there was more corn.service was very good once again.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, although myFood was good, although my white fish was a bit too lemony. Others in our party enjoyed their meals and the deserts!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBit Of France in Oak BrookWine was excellent as was the service from the waitstaff. Definitely try the crepes and the prime rib sandwich.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a saveWe were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time, which had NEVER happened to us at this restaurant before. The manager more than made up for and our service once we sat down was amazing. The food was excellent -- as always -- especially the soup.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSensational Mother's Day BrunchDespite overflowing crowd on Mother's Day the food and service were excellent. Looking forward to our next visit!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchService was very good, meal was good, noise level was higher than normal as it was Mothers Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day - Close to GreatTook my partner and my folks out for Mothers Day dinner with a 6:45 reservation. Finally we're seated at about 7:15 and the waiter was right there to get drink and appetizer orders from our hungry crowd. Before he finished, the GM was there paying for our apps because of the wait. Smoked salmon and steamed mussels dispensed with -- both were very nice -- we moved on to soups and salads. My small Caesar salad would fit in the palm of my hand! Entrees were good not great. First choice of roasted chicken was 86-ed right before we ordered. Dad's hangar steak was tough cooked med-well. Mom's scallops were perfect, partner's trout was very good and my end cut prime rib was most excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMlively and lovelyOnce again great food, great service, great ambiance. The only reason its not 5 stars because of having to wait past our reservation time. But, it was Mothers Day and they were packed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale, city dining in OakbrookMy wife and I went here for our anniversary and found it to be charming - with a true, european feel to both the restaurant and the food. We both had variations on the steak, which was cooked perfectly. We had a wonderful corner table and while the restaurant was packed, the noise level was such that you could still carry on a conversation.The wine list and choices were exceptional
I would note that you will want reservations as the wait without would have been around 2.5 hours on Saturday at 6:30
Overall, a fun and unique experience that we will definately repeat.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very well prepared.The food was very well prepared. I would come back to try different dishes. The waiter was attentive but not hovering. In addition he was knowledgeable about the menu. This was the first time I've been there and I chose it because of the information online. I will be back and I will recommend Mon Ami Gabi.
There was only thing that was off putting. I was running late so I called ahead, gave my ETA and asked if there would be a problem. She was very polite and reassuring. When I arrived my first face to face contact with your staff was a young man standing at the podium by the front door who told me I was late after he finished his personal phone call. He said nothing else as he seated us. His manner was unprofessional.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Mini Trip to FranceMon Ami Gabi is a true friend: reliable, comforting and full of good times for every season. From classic dishes to a tasty amuse and specials for every day of the week there is something for every palate.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunchAs always, quality food, great atmosphere and good service.

Everything was wonderful starting with the valet attendents, to the hostess and to Bonnie our server. She was very frinedly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the atmosphere very pleasing.
We deifinately will be back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly negative is Mon Ami GabiOnly negative is Mon Ami Gabi has got back the size of the cauliflower puree. It used to be a healthy portion. On Friday night it was meager.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversay dinnerThe restaurant is beautiful and has a wonderful ambiance perfect for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant was recommend by a friend and I have already recommended this restaurant to many other friends. The service was great, the food was outstanding and the dessert was scrumptious. We loved this restaurant and we hope to return soon.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThis was my first time at the restaurant. The food was wonderful and the service was beyond excellent.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want good food andIf you want good food and great sevice this is the place.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Dover Sole MuenierWe had the Dover Sole Muenier and it was fantastic. Our server, Jim, was very knowledgeable of all aspects of the menu and wine list. We had the chicken liver mousse as an appetizer and it was delicious. The Chocolate Souffle was the best we ever had. It was not to sweet as many desserts tend to be.
We were disappointed in the serving of the bread. While the bread was warm, crusty and delicious, a knife and cutting board would have been nice. Also, the souffle was just placed on the table for us to serve ourselves. Most restaurants of this caliber would have served us.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a special eveningAlways a very comfortable and cozy feeling during the dining experience. The food items are most delicious and small changes are noticed and welcomed on the menu. A long-time standout in the neighborhood!!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great service, consistanI really love the consistency, good food, great service and overall wonderful-ness of Mon Ami Gabi. Yes, it is in a mall which stinks, but it is in Oak Brook so you will either be in a mall, a stripe mall or alone mall like building. Although parking is annoying, the valet is a measly $4.00. Fast and efficient. The service her is great, the wine list is very good for being relatively small, the food consistently good, and the prices more than acceptable.
Overall we go, we go pretty often and we walk away happy, full and satiated.
Also, they are good with kids and highchairs if you call ahead and you have well behaved munchkins.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBe more consistent.This is one of my go to restaurants. The food is usually very good, very good. The wait staff on the other hand just isn't consistent. They can be abrupt and rushed, not return to follow up on an item that's been served, refills on water are always good, but refills for iced/hot tea, coffee, and soft drinks are usually missed....anyway, service is hit or miss. Mon Ami Gabi, teach your staff to be professionals4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways impressiveWe have never been disappointed when we dine at Mon Ami Gabi. From start to finish, their service is impeccable; their food is delicious; and the price is affordable. On this visit, we celebrated a family member's Birthday and everyone in our party was impressed with our choice of restaurant. A good time was had by all!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a reservation for 7:30,I had a reservation for 7:30, arrived on time and was told by the hostess our table was ready and we would be seated momentarily. Based on this, we did not go enjoy a drink at the bar, but waited to be seated. 25 minutes later (and several inquiries about the "ready" table) we were seated. Had she simply told me our table was not ready, I would've gladly enjoyed a drink or two at the bar. But she kept insisting we would be seated "momentarily", so we stood waiting patiently.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, we had a great experienceAs usual, we had a great experience at Mon Ami Gabi. the staff was attentive and helpful. The Steak Peppercorn was done to perfection. We were not rushed even though the restaurant was busy and people kept coming in well after we were done with our meal and enjoying conversation over coffee.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food. We hadOutstanding food. We had a group of six and were seated at a nice round table so we could visit easily. Great place. Would recommend it highly.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMvery good but not authenticeverything we ordered was terrific and our waiter was extremely attentive throughout the meal, without being intrusive! as this rather high level of service was in stark contrast to what we've experienced in numerous Paris bistros, for greater authenticity, we suggest that MAG wait staff learn to display complete indifference and require a search party to be found after each order is placed. :-)4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat server.
