It is a pandemic so I will tread lightly on my comments. So many restaurants have figured out the cold weather issues w outdoor dining, however Mon Ami Gabi is an exception. It was too cold. Service was mediocre with only 4 other tables. The managers seemed clueless as to how cold the outdoor space was. The cappuccinos were awful. The food could have been better. I will chalk this one up to covid, but I certainly won’t go back until things normalize.

The window was cracked for airflow, but it was very windy and cold. Affected the wine taste and enjoyment, but still a phenomenal place.

Very good lunch! I ordered the Prime Steak with maître d’hôtel butter with fries and the profiteroles as a dessert. I am originally from French and this is the first time I almost felt in Paris in Chicago.

The food and service are always amazing. The ambience is the best it can be considering the much needed Covid 19 accommodations. We will continue to come to Mon Ami Gabi. It is my most favorite restaurant in Chicago.

I am a long time loyal LETTUCE person and Mon Ami frequenter. I made a reservation for an outside table - got there and was seated at an INDOOR table - within 8 ft of the door to the outside where at least 30 different people came in and out during the course of our meal. NOT OK.
The hostess was rather dismissive, as if the table she gave us WAS outdoors! Snarky..."well you can wait for an outdoor table but there is a table ahead of you...". TERRIBLE customer service.
I have NEVER had a bad experience here before - know most of the managers and waiters. You should do something about this.
I cannot recommend this dining situation - you misrepresent yourselves if you include indoor tables as outdoor dining.

We were celebrating an important family event during Covid and the staff went to great lengths to accomodate us Covid protocols notwithstanding. They had to keep the windows open on a very cold day, but they moved the table as far away as possible. As always, the food and service were fantastic and we had a wonderful experience. We will continue to come to Mon Ami Gabi for our family celebrations!

An absolute gem in the heart of Lincoln Park. Escape the noise of the city to this French restaurant nestled next to the park at no extra cost. The dishes and service go unmatched. A must try for all lovers of French cuisine.

I am sad to say that COVID has destroyed one of my favorite restaurants. The dining experience last night was painful.

There was inadequate and wanting service....the food was poor quality and the ambience was obvious of the restaurant's poor state.

I will not return. So so sad.

They didn’t do a good job with Covid set up. So make-shift, our table was right by the waiters’ station, wobbly tiny table we had to fix it 5 times during dinner, constant shuffling with to go orders, a few big group tables of 5 and more around us and the noise, as always with this restaurant, is so loud that it is shocking to me that in 25 years or so that I have been going to this restaurant it never occurred to them to do something about it. The food was good, as always, and the waiter as well. I think that the quality of management personnel is in question though.

We are regulars at Mon Ami Gabi, but I want to remind them how much we love them. COVID has sucked the life out of so many kinds of celebrations, but it didn't destroy our anniversary. We happily complied with mask requirements, but when it was time to eat the sea scallops were amazing. For dessert, I had a granny smith apple crumble and I can still conjure the delicate taste of the chantilly cream. John, our waiter, brightens any celebration. His combination of warmth and humor make every visit a special occasion.

The bar stocks drambuie, need I say more? OK, my husbands salmon and my steak frites were both great. The gem salad was good, especially if you took some of the delicious blue cheese and put it on the excellent french bread. The waiter was very helpful, recommending a red wine to go with the steak. The pace was very relaxed, so we had a pleasant evening.

You can't go wrong with the steak au poivre and frites. The steak is always wonderfully tender and the sauce is piquant and spicy. My husband enjoyed his steak with sauce bordelaise.
