Considering this crazy time, Mon Ami did a great job with keeping a social distance while serving delicious food. We sat on the outdoor patio which is beautiful. Amazing Caesar salad. Salmon, steak and frites and terrific dessert. It was my daughter's 10th birthday and they made her feel special. We love this restaurant and we will keep coming back.

Love love love the food, the ambiance and the service. Only issue is that you cannot make a reservation for outside. If you have a reservation you can ask for outside, but it could be a significant wait. They really need to come up with a system for outdoor tables.

Food was cold when served. Seated right next to the front door, not particular comfortable since everyone walked by us as we were having dinner. Service is alright.

The outdoor dining is lovely, but when rain threatens, more strategically placed umbrellas should be considered. Also, when lake breezes are prevalent, diners shouldn't have to ask for the heaters to be turned on. We expected the food to be a bit pricey, especially being in Lincoln Park. The food was good, cooked to order with no problems, meat tender, but no one had a "Wow!" moment for the price. Service was good, we just didn't like that the water choices offered were convoluted, so we got hit with a $7 charge for a bottle of Evian when we said still vs. sparkling. We just happened to notice the regular "house water" in bottles at other tables and changed options. Overall, lovely place for a special occasion. I will go back to try the roasted chicken and their burger.

Went for My Big Birthday a week after reopening and they have been very professional regarding social distancing and using masks and gloves.
Food was great and they offered my dessert for my Birthday.

Excellent service. They allowed us to dine inside but with the French doors open which made it chilly but safe. The tables did not have flowers or a candle which made it less attractive. Food was good but the menu was limited -not their full menu.

Unfortunately I was given my companion's medium hamburger instead of my medium rare one, and the one I was given was very dry. Plus Mon Ami Gabi is now charging for bread, and in exceptionally tiny print the menu said that it was adding a covid-related charge. And it was not made obvious that there was no valet service

Food was delicious, you cannot choose wrong here. Our server was funny and attentive. Patio seating (mandatory) was chilly despite the heaters. But it was a terrific choice for a family graduation celebration.

Nice time in the fringe phase of returning to in person dining as the COVID crisis ramps down. We were celebrating what was supposed to be our wedding night. Our server was really friendly and caring and he hooked us up with a free glass of champagne. The patio was a little chilly but they had heat lamps scattered around the tables that were all distanced appropriately. We’d go back for sure.

Everything about the dining experience at Mon Ami Gabi was excellent. The ambience is not quite as plush as some other restaurants, but the food and service are outstanding from the wine to the dessert. The experience is always extremely pleasing.

Started off with the artichoke. For entrees we had the trout and skate. For dessert my wife had a nice chocolate cake with whip cream.
