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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Sunday brunch was just average, compared to the regular menu. Service is very good and cheerful, and the food is all well prepared and tasty, but uninspiring. I wish it were a bit more New Orleans, or a bit more French. This food I could have found here in Evanston and saved the trip.

Best ever tartare of salmon and a fine menu all round. Friendly and very helpful service without pomp, stunning rooms, great atmosphere, lively conversations not intruding on each other -- beautiful.
We'll be back at the first opportunity.

We were seated at table 54 and were very happy to learn that we had the same server and table as we did on our last visit to MonAmiGabi. She is an excellent server and we like the location of that table bc it is a round table in a corner, so not too noisy. Our food was delicious and we will definitely be back again soon.
