Very nice. Will go there again.
Great food & service every visit!
I decided to try this place after seeing other raving reviews, and I had never been to a french bistro/restaurant before!
We went at brunch on a Sunday (12:30pm)
The food was absolutely delightful - I ordered the Creme Brulee french toast and my (now) fiancee ordered the Salmon & eggs Benedict. We had the Mango-Passion fruit sorbet for dessert.
The french toast was HOT on the plate, which was amazing. I don't think I've ever been served actual HOT french toast before! Usually it is lukewarm at best so this was instantly a plus. The toast was crisped perfectly on the exterior and soft inside, and the blackberry glaze and fresh whipped cream on top was incredibly delicious and well-balanced. 10/10
My fiancee's eggs Benedict had pefectly poached eggs, and the salmon portion was seasoned perfectly, cooked perfectly, and there were a generous amount of capers (usually restaurants skimp on those in fear of overpowering the dish), this was perfect. Her only complaint was that there wasn't MORE food. 10/10.
The Mango-Passionfruit sorbet was sweet and tart and light and brilliant. 10/10
Now, it was busy in the place so I don't fault our server for taking a little extra time to check in on us, but she did forget a few items. We both ordered cocktails, and she asked my fiancee if she wanted another - she said yes. It was never brought to our table. I also ordered a side of bacon with my french toast. I had to ask her to bring it out a second time, and didn't get it to my table until i had about 2 bites left of my toast. It happens, I understand.
Overall this place is amazing! They even have a really great deal for $20 off of your first visit of $40 or more if you join their email club. We got 2 entrees, 2 drinks, a side of bacon and dessert -- with the coupon it was less than $35 (pre-tax, of course).
Will definitely return for dinner service in the future! Compliments to the chef and terrific value for the quality.
Always wonderful! This has been a favorite for at least twenty years. Solid French fare.
Food was very flavorful and delicious. The perfect portion for an entree. Atmosphere was lovely. Perfect for a date night but can also accommodate a larger group.
Excellent food and service !!
It was great. Good food and glad to have found a separate menu for vegan/vegetarian.
We have been going to Mon Ami Gabi for 20 years and have always loved the Steak Frites and pretty much everything else they serve. Recently, we decided to switch to a plant-based diet, so we were a little nervous about going back to the restaurant and facing disappointment. While it wasn’t the same experience (different food, obviously), it was still very good. The vegan onion soup with lentils was delicious. I had the Cauliflower Steak Frites— the cauliflower was really nicely roasted and seasoned, and the olive tapenade on top added a nice touch. Our server was wonderful. She was familiar with the vegan/vegetarian menu and made suggestions, which we appreciated. The menu wasn’t extensive — it would be nice to see more items added to that menu, and perhaps a second option for dessert, like something creamy or chocolatey (we had a lovely sorbet, but this was the only choice). Overall a great experience, thank you!
Mon ami Gabi is my favorite restaurant of all time and never disappoints
First time to Mon Ami Gabi. Great atmosphere: think French bistro. Dark woods, white tile floor, high ceilings. Very good service, Helpful bartenders, servers, hosts, etc. My disappointment was the food . Specifically my filet. It was well-seasoned and well-prepared, It was just not a good piece of meat. The price was not outrageous, so I don't feel cheated - just disappointed. Very good drinks. Very good pomme puree. Outstanding peppercorn sauce (This ALMOST made up for the poor quality of meat). I like this place. I like the staff. But based on my initial visit here, there are a LOT of better restaurants in Chicago.
Great service, excellent food, and lovely overall experience!
Good food and great service. Steaks were not the best in Chicago but one of the best values and overall a great dining experience.
Dependably chic, warm, delicious and professional.
Mon Ami Gabi is wonderful and I am always thankful for the times I spend there. My recent meal was a delight. I enjoyed a steak/frites while my friend was very pleased with the salmon special. Mark was amazing as our wait staff and could not have been more professional. This really is a site I cannot recommend highly enough.
Always consistent neighborhood gem
Mon Ambi Gabi is my absolute favorite restaurant. My husband and I have been going there for years and it is always consistent - great food, great waiters and love the atmosphere. Favorite dish - Steak Frites
Mon ami Gabi is always a reliable choice: great food, excellent service and generous portions. Their drinks are expertly mixed and never watered down.
Tuesday Night is Burger Night. Always a great dinner option at our favorite restaurant.
Always above and beyond!!! Service and food were exceptional!
Our waitress was wonderful and made the experience even better!
Love Mon Ami Gabi. Great food, excellent service and lovely ambience. What more could I ask for.
We went for Sunday Brunch the food was excellent. It is a true little bistro very busy place. Enjoyed it all except for the loud girl next to us, who talked incessantly to her friend she was with! Heard everything she said! When the tables are close together like in a bistro, show some restraint and keep your voice down. Writing this for who go there, speak softly not ruin the experience for everyone else!
Valentine’s Day - amazing
Great food, service, and atmosphere. Love this place!! One of our favorites!!
Good beverages and steak frites. Service was fine. Busier Weekends and felt a bit cramped. A bit loud. Nice place to dine for almost any occasion to celebrate.
Wonderful. An institution for traditional French Cuisine in the heart of Lincoln Park. Been going for 20 years and expect to go for 20+ more...
Great food, attentive waiter, fair prices, and they remembered our anniversary! We’d definitely return.
Table was in a crowded and noisy location and we were seated there while there were better and more comfortable tables at which we could have been seated. Service was slow. Drinks were fine, wine suggestion fine, steaks arrived lukewarm and fries arrived cold. Dessert was fine. I am assuming it was a bad night. I will give them one more chance one day.
The food was terrific and everything else was very good. My only complaint is that the tables are a little close together and it feels a bit cramped. Waitress was a little slow, but overall very good. We had 3 different types of steak - each was excellent. Wine prices seems a little high, but we had an excellent recommendation from our waitress, Highly recommend this restaurant. :-)
Everything was SO YUMMY! Such a great deal, we came for Restaurant Week 2020 and were hit with so much amazing, tasty food. Would definitely suggest everything we ordered time and time again.
We loved our waitress Rebecca - so kind and full of energy. She provided wonderful service that truly made our experience at the restaurant ideal. We look forward to coming back!!
Love the Steaks, the service was overall good but they forgot we ordered bread, it didn't bother us that much since we were full, but that's something they need to check.
Delicious food and great gluten-free options! Very kid-friendly as well. Our whole family enjoyed brunch there.
Food was D-Lish and the service was friendly and timely
The meal, service and ambiance were great! Very pleasant dining experience.
Very cramped space, felt like I was dining with the parties seated on either side of us, hard not to overhear conversation. The salmon tartare was amazing (10/10 would recommend), the rest of the meal satisfactory for the price, nothing exceptional.
The environment is always fun and the service is good. The food is tasty, but the steak was very thin.
Went for restaurant week— menu was incredible and the service, impeccable. Will be back for sure!
Will be back! Loved the desserts and of course champagne.
Excellent and attentive service. Noise level tolerable as restaurant was not full. Noise level somewhat disruptive as the restaurant filled up.
We have a great time every time. The food and service are excellent.
