Diner Reviews
  • "Mon Ami Gabi is one of my most favorite restaurants in the area. I go there as often as I can. This time it was for my birthday. The staff is always cordial and so accommodating. The food is excellent!"

  • "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."

  • "We've been here for bridal showers (awesome); small dinners and lunch. Food is excellent, service engaging and wines delightful. It's always a go-to place when entertaining out of town guests in the 'burbs."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I've been to this restaurant many times and have always loved the food.The food was not the issue for this visit. 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."

  • "We always like Mon Ami Gabi - we have been to several in Chicago, Bethesda, etc. The food is consistent, the service good, the ambience appealing."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "Had the mussels appetizer & skate wing here before, but they were never as good as this time. Sat outside on a beautiful night with a great bottle of Graves. Our server was outstanding. It was just what I was looking for."

  • "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."

  • "Very nice and they pay attention to what you ask for in your reservation. Accomodated us earlier when we called which was also considerate. Staff is very good, attention to both everyday stuff like keeping water filled as well as making sure we were happy with our food. Also checked on all aspects of our experience. Knowledgeable wait staff who were also friendly."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Honestly I have only ever gone here for brunch since we love the baguette and preserves they serve in the morning. I have heard their steaks are out of this world and with reviewing their specials I would really like to try one day."

  • "Went out for a much needed date night away from the kids. Booked reservations online and was seated the moment we arrived. Staff was inviting and took great care of us. Food was excellent. It is a great spot if you are looking to enjoy yourself and your company."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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 :)"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Had a great meal with great service. The entrees were excellent and the sides were outstanding! The mashed potatoes and pasta & cheese were way beyond good! Beware, the blueberry crepe was excellent but huge! I highly recommend this place!"

  • "food was bery good, however I was little disappointed with the desert which is always excellent. I was expecting mo blueberries in blueberry crepe. Maybe a bad choice. nevertheless, it is our favored place."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Our server was pleasant but he must have had too many tables. We were seated for over 1/2 hour before he took our wine order and over an hour before we received our soup. Our entrees were mediocre and very expensive for what we got -wayyyy overpriced! Very loud place also. Our friends told us it was pricey and loud-wish we had listened. We won't go ago-there are too many excellent places to fine for $25-$30/person to get mediocre steak and burnt French fries."

  • "This was our first time to Mon Ami Gabi and I expected a typical Lettuce experience. It was a Saturday night, however the restaurant was not crowded. Our server took our order, delivered our food & drinks and then disappeared. It took a really long time to get our food, and we probably waited for almost 30 minutes to finally see our server to get our check (and a box for leftovers) so we could leave! A table was seated next to us-they arrived when we got our drinks. The ordered drinks, appetizers, a meal and dessert and they still were done before we were. Normally we are pretty easy to please but my husband was annoyed-and reflected it in the tip (along with a note to the server)."

  • "Throughout the years, Mon Ami Gabi has never disappointed. The food is excellent, the fish is fresh and the ambiance makes for a relaxed environment and good conversation. It is our "go to" spot when we want a central location for dinner with friends. We are constantly trying new restaurants, however, Mon Ami Gabi is our "old reliable.""
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We've been here several times and have never been disappointed by the food. The french onion soup is our go-back must-have. Rich and flavorful with the perfect balance of onions + broth + cheese. My steak Roquefort was cooked perfectly with a pungent blue cheese. My wife's trout was seared delicately and presented in a plate filling pallet of culinary mastery along with green beans. Now the service.... could have been improved IF the bussers and wait staff would have taken the time to actually look at the table and make sure everything was proper. A missing place setting, missing salt & pepper and generally a feeling of having shlepped the last guest out of the seat to get us in. We had to flag down others to ask for these things."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Mon Ami Gabi was wonderful! The food was excellent, the wine was great, and desert was succulent. I really enjoyed the onion soup and the scallops, while my husband found their steak to be delicious. They really made our anniversary special, giving us champagne and desert on the house. I would definitely go back because the food was so good. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends."
