What Insiders Are Saying
Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro in an upscale Lincoln Park residential building.
The food was great and our waitress was delightful!
It’s been on our list for years, and we weren’t disappointed! Everything we had was so good and the ambiance is very nice. Will definitely be going back. Another great restaurant from LEY
As always, très excellente
Mon Ami is just about the best restaurant in Chicago for skate wing, and each time I'm there I have a helluva hard time deciding between it and the steak/frites Bourdelaise.
Great service, great wines by the glass. Excellent service food.
Wonder brunch. We loved that they had everything from eggs, to salad, to burgers. Their French wines by the glass are always excellent.
Always a great place for brunch. Our favorite. We hosted my daughters bridal shower here back in 2009, and have been fans ever since.
My girlfriend had heard of Mon Ami Gabi and had wanted to go there and it was an absolute delectable time. Carrot salad, butter and warm rustic French baguette are brought directly to the table when you sit down and they are delicious. For sure recommend the French Onion Soup, but make sure to split it with another person or get a 1/2 order... it is huge! The duck confit was different than I was expecting, but not in a negative way. Rather than breast meat, they chose a drum stick which gave it a unique flavor reminiscent of moist Thanksgiving turkey. Finally we chose the Prime Steak Au Poivre medium-rare and it melted in your mouth like butter. I’m sure any other sauce selection there would have been just as delicious. I must also give a shout out to our waitress at the Chicago location Amanda who was bubbly, engaging, attentive and an absolute delight. My only negative feedback is that the lighting was a bit dark making reading the menu a bit more difficult, but other than that, well done!
Excellent location at Belden Stratford historic building
An amazing French Restaurant. The service is comparable to Morton’s, as is the quality of the food. If you visit, I would recommend you ask for John as your waiter. He’s one of a kind!
Loved the food and ambiance!
If you are looking for a hopping French Bistro, this is the place to go.
Excellent service from Don - he was very polite, knowledgeable and was attentive to our needs. Food had delicious taste and the atmosphere was lively and energetic.
This was the best restaurant for my birthday! Our sever was so patient with the kids and wonderful with our picky order. Everything we ordered was delicious. Best Caesar salad! The salmon was cooked perfectly! The steak frites just like being in France. We had a special and delicious meal.
Our favorite restaurant for anytime and any occasion. Love John as well as most servers and the efficient manager.
For the first time ever, we were not thrilled by our experience. Our server seemed so eager to have us leave as soon as we were seated (every stage of the meal was rushed even tho there were only a few tables seated) This was our first time with the newly offered brunch - the egg white omelette with peas and asparagus was only ok (maybe a little rubbery and the filling just rolled out with each bite.) That being said, it's a great atmosphere, and we have had dozens and dozens of great meals here, so we will be back to give brunch another go!
Spinach artichoke eggs Benedict are excellent as our the creme brûlée French toast.
The meat served was not good. Filet mignon was tough, frittes came out cold. Onion soup was very good however along with the endive salad. Wine selection was good. Overall not impressed.
We always have a great dining experience at Mon Ami Gabi Chicago. It is one of our favorite restaurants.
We love Mon Ami Gabi! Amazing experience and service every time. Thank you for making Natalie’s birthday special.
As always a great place for a great dinner.
Food is perfect and amazing service.
Favorite French restaurant.
Our experience was overall very good, but the service was not up to our expectations. Both the bartender, while cheerful and helpful, mentioned how busy he expected to be, and the waiter specifically mentioned how busy he was, as if that should be our problem. The waiter was very impatient, twice leaving the table after taking only part of our order saying he'd get one person's drink and then take the other person's order. He never described the specials - fortunately we had overheard them when we were at the bar. But the food was delicious and well-prepared as always, and we had a pleasant evening.
This place is incredible. Food is fantastic and the ambiance is even better! I’m coming back as often as I can! Thank you!
Mon Ami is one of our favorite Chicago restaurants and we had never had a bad meal until Sunday evening. There were two specials that were just not great. One was the beef Wellington--just ok. The other was the halibut that we actually thought was pretty bad. Would never order that special again.
But, I still recommend this restaurant because the food on the menu is always delicious and the service is terrific. We will be back. Just won't order those dishes.
It was the best dinner I've had in Chicago in quite a while. The steak frite and the escargot were unimaginably wonderful.
Fabulous food...great selection of wines...and ALWAYS delightful service!!!
I went back to Mon Ami Gabi after a poor meal. I had a gift certificate and took a friend to brunch. Unbelievable, it happened AGAIN. We both ordered eggs benedict. One of the them, the traditional eggs came out cold, seriously cold. The one with spinach was warm. They apologized and took back the cold one. By the time the new one came, my friend had finished his.
Had a delightful time!
Love Mon Ami Gabi! Went there with my husband and everything was great.
The steak frites, the Dover sole and the escargot were all excellent, (though my first steak was barely warm, they took it right back and brought me another done perfectly). Profiteroles also excellent and wine from the cart perfect.
Good friendly service and great food. Always accommodating.
As always, a delightful and delicious dinner. Great Service.
John was amazing as always Love the food and experience there!
En mi opinion el mejor lugar en su tipo ceno ahi dos veces por demana
Always wonderful neighborhood spot. Great food whether to graze of enjoy a full dinner. Great wine selection and as always, a stellar staff from host stand to server and runners/bussers. Our server Amanda, was charming, capable, cordial and hugely competent.
Ate outside and wind picked up. Should have gone inside but they turned up the heat lamps for us and food was good
We were there for Easter dinner. Our waitress had been there since 8:45 am. She was fabulous. Food was great. We sat in the back room. One of my favorite places.
Great food and patrons! An unforgettable experience....
We came for Easter Brunch with family of 11. We do Easter Brunch with you quite often and it is always enjoyable. Only suggestion is a better children’s menu. Gift for kids was so nice and they loved it. Overall very good.
