Mon Ami Gabi
Book your next event with us
Food very good as usual.
Excellent location for an extended family get-together. We lived in France for 2 1/2 years and although the menu is not strictly French it brought back wonderful culinary memories. The nostalgia started with the Kir Royale and continued through the Poisson du Jour and was topped off by the fabulous Tarte Tatin. Wonderful!
Celebrated our one year anniversary there and we were first time diners. The food was incredible and the service was spot on.
Family get tkgether
Our server Janet was amazing and food was spectacular as always!
My favorite restaurant in my neighborhood ❤️. Best Caesar salad. Too
One of my favorites. Been here so many times that it feels like home. When I want to feel like I'm in Europe I head over to Mon Ami Gabi.
Very satisfied with experience
The food and service were excellent. The food came out in a timely manner, and the atmosphere was very comfortable.
Not only is this restaurant routinely fantastic, they handled our special occasion (anniversary) beautifully with champagne, dessert and a romantic table. Cant recommend enough!
When on their game Mon Ami Gabi is superb. Once in a while when off their game it is an indifferent experience. We live 2 minutes away and drop in often.
The off hand lack of welcome tonight - when a reservation is not available better could be done the sending guests outside a closed door to wait in an open area with mismatched (and dirty) chairs and no sense of apology or urgency. Likely would have been better if one of the more experienced hosts were at the front desk who either do a good job recognizing return guests or bother to notice on the system and welcome us back.
This was followed by lack luster table service (the beer was warm, the glass a water glass from the warm drawer, the staff kept clearing plates before the table was finished, the bread plate was dirty....), and a general sense of everyone being harassed it was not the best of experiences.
Fortunately we know and have experienced Mon Ami at their best. So will be back.
Glad we did not bring any first time friends or clients with us. It would have been a let down!
Very good menu and good food.
Our favorite restaurant in Chicago.
Always great service and great food..
Just very crowded and noisy. We’ll take the noise to have the great food!!!
We always love going to Mon Ami Gabi for the delectable food and cozy atmosphere. Our server was very nice about splitting the Dover Sole for us (delicious) but I did feel a little rushed. It was a Friday night, but I didn't feel particularly encouraged to savor the experience.
Everything was perfect. Thanks for the great experience !!! Keep it up
Love mom ami. Ultimate cold weather comfort food. They are so fast and everything on menu is great.
This is our neighborhood gem and New Year's dinner was made special with the staffs friendly attitude, helpfulness, and the added bonus of party favors and champagne passed out to everyone in the restaurant minutes before midnight! The special of the night was melt in your mouth amazing; salmon and wild rice wrapped in a light pastry. A great way to bring in 2020!!
Great service and food. We loved everything!
Food was excellent. Ambience is wonderful. I felt like I was in Paris. Service is always outstanding.
We have eaten at Mon Ami Gabi for years, and our New Years experience was superb.
We had a great dining experience and definitely will go back!! The service was great, food even better and overall really enjoyed ourselves!
Wonderful, as always!
5/5 stars. This place is incredible!
Our favorite French bistro in Lincoln Park never disappoints. We had all our more traditional favorites this trip: the crusty baguette, cheesy onion soup/lobster bisque, and buttery tender steaks with crisp frites. Oh, and legit cocktails and glasses of wine. Room for creme brûlée? Why not. Foodie or Francophile, trust you’ll enjoy it all.
Excellent food and excellent service with great wines. The salmon in puff pastry was excellent. The salmon was cooked through but still very moist with spinach and other veggies. My husband's steak was also excellent. We had a lovely table, was not crunched together and were able to carry on a good conversation. A lovely evening.
We really love this spot. Great ambiance. Great staff. This was our second visit. The first visit, everything was over the top great. Our recent return visit was really good, but the food this time didn't hit it out of the park. I think we ordered different items, and they were not quite up to the awesome level we had experienced before. We are planning to return. Really love the space, menu and staff.
Our waiter(Ryan, I believe) and Henry were terrific!!
Food as good as always.
Went for brunch....as good as always! The omelets and hash browns are super..flavorful and
nicely presented. Great bread. Just very good, classic French cuisine.
We went to Mon Ami Gabi recently for a family brunch on a Sunday. At 11am the restaurant was busy but not crowded and we were seated promptly in a nice corner table. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive and our initial drinks were delivered in good time. One dietary request from our party was met with positivity and our request well taken care of. The food was very good indeed - the classic eggs benedict was excellent and a salmon equivalent very tasty. The sides were memorable. The bill represented real value for money in my opinion. We will be back!
Took a friend here for her birthday. The food was delicious and the service was just perfect. After our meal the server brought out a profiterole with a candle in it and my friend was impressed. Will definitely be coming back.
Delicious! We had two specials- salmon Wellington and beef tenderloin medallions with melt in your mouth gnocchis. The server was a blast. The setting was intimate. We were celebrating a birthday. It was perfect.
Best French bistro in Chicago. A tour of the Lincoln Park Zoo lights followed by dinner at Mon Ami Gabi is a holiday must!
Love the food and the atmosphere. Plus, excellent service.
We were so excited to go for Christmas Eve dinner. The room was cozy and seating a bit tight. Food and service was great though.
Nice family tradition over the holidays.
It's been too long since I have returned, but won't be again. The overall experience was sublime: a perfectly situated table, amazing service, outstanding food, and the overall ambiance energetic and delightful. Don't rush, just enjoy...
Restaurant and food were great. Valet was very busy and misplaced our keys so we waited over an hour for our car only to be told they couldn’t find the keys. They were able to find them and get our car to us later that night but that ruined our night.
