Always a great dining experience!
It's very nice restaurant starting with warm bread. We enjoyed French bistro type dishes to be very happy in the Sunday brunch. We will visit there again.
We had a great meal. The service was real good. We really had a nice evening and experience.
This is one of my favorite French restaurants in Chicago.
Their plates, service, ambiance are outstanding.
It's a wonderful, cozy french bistro. Menu isn't very extensive (most prominent are steaks, but a few fish options etc. are there as well), staff is nice and helpful, and ambiance is wonderful. It's the kind of place you'd like scattered all around the city!
Mon Ami Gabi was great. We sat outside. The service was delightful and the food was a delight.
Have always loved dining at Mon Ami Gabi. Since the Pandemic we have not dined there. We were pleased the restaurant is still the same with great menu choices.
Excellent, consistent French bistro fare in a charming setting.
Mon Ami Gabi has been our go-to French place post Covid! They are always welcoming and the food is delish!!
Food was fabulous! Was disappointed that scallops weren’t on the menu, but the rib eye made up for it. Good time was had by all !
Came here with my friends for a nice dinner and we were blown away at how good everything was. It’s a bit pricey for a casual dinner but so worth it!
Mon Ami Gabi in Chicago never disappoints...it's a crowd pleaser!
We had an amazing dinner at Mon Ami Gabi to celebrate a birthday. The food, the service and the outdoor seating was all fabulous. We will definitely be back soon!
We were neglected. Had to ask to be served. It’s a shame they are typically better than this.
We came here for brunch on a Sunday at 11 am. It was a lovely experience. The outdoor space was perfect for dining during covid. Our waitress was very attentive. The food was excellent. My daughter Quiche was beautifully plated and well prepared. My husband's salmon hollandaise was great. In short, a lovely experience
As expected based on prior visits, Mon Ami Gabi was excellent. Thanks for a nice evening.
F A B U L O U S! Every single course, cocktail, and bite of food was sensational. Brava!
We got major attitude from the hostess when we checked in - we were supposed to be seated outside on the patio & she sat us inside. She was very defensive.
Waitress was delightful - ever so pleasant - she was the highlight of the evening.
My friend & I both ordered different appetizers and entree's - meh. @ best mediocre - we agreed that nothing had a lot of taste.
This place is not worth the price for so-so food and attitude from one staff member.
Excellent food and service as usual! Classic French good at its finest.
Great dining experience. All 3 of us loved it. Definitely get proffita rolls for dessert!
The service was more than excellent,our server (RYAN) was very professional and very attentive to us.
The food was delicious
Usually, we like the food here. Last night, two of our party had salmon and it was uneatably overcooked. My husband's filet was tough, although tasty.
Outstanding service from Eric. Foot delicious. Wonderful evening.
Always a treat. Good food. Great service. Comfortable.
It was a holiday dinner and was delicious! Our server was outstanding.
The food was exquisite; the atmosphere was convivial; the service was delightful and appropriately attentive. Could not be happier with this dining experience!
Wonderful as always
Lovely restaurant, great vibe like you are really in France. Excellent ambiance, food and service. Not too noisy. Mostly adult clientele, but children can be accommodated. Gluten Free options. Don't miss it, just go.
Absolutely outstanding. Friendly, wonderful service, exceptional food, beautiful ambience, not rushed, long and leisurely relaxed dinner. Everyone was so pleased, of all ages.
This restaurant is located in one of the neighborhoods - in an old building. It is a bit cramped inside - lots of tables close together - and has a noise level. The French bread loaf was poor at the beginning of the meal. OK, now. Forget all that. You came here for the food and the food is sensational. In a word, sensational.
Eric our professional waiter lead us to amazing choices. My dover sole, the monthly special was perfection. (Reserve your dover sole early as we were told that it sells out.) We each had a Greek salad -again perfection. Huge chunk of feta. Huge. My wife's steak was superb, perfectly med-rare. Hat's off to Eric. Hats off to the chefs.
This restaurant deserves its wonderful reputation.
Our server was excellent. He was very personable and made us feel welcome. Unfortunately, the restaurant did not have a glass of sweeter wine I liked. So, our server made sure I liked the cocktail I ordered. He even changed the cocktail to something more to my liking. He was very accommodating. He recommended a couple of the steak and frites he thought were really tasty. One of the steaks he recommended was the Steak Roquefort. The steak was cooked perfectly, medium rare, and the frites were good. We shared a Caesar salad which was still a big portion but very good. And, for dessert, the profiteroles were to die for. He even gave us more chocolate fudge for the profiteroles. A very nice evening at Mon Ami Gabi.
Excellent food and service
We loved the expanded outdoor seating, but thought the walk around the side and through the building could have been eliminated with a hostess stand outside. It seemed unnecessary, especially for those seated outdoors. Our server was terrific. She was very attentive, checking on us frequently and also allowing us time to decide. Service seemed much quicker than pre-covid dining. Our table of four dined on the Beef Wellington (be sure to pre-order 24 hours in advance), Steak Roquefort and Trout Almondine, along with Frisee & Warm Thick-Cut Bacon Salad, Onion Soup Au Gratin, Chocolate Mousse, Classic Profiteroles and Strawberries Briand. Everything was delicious, cooked and seasoned perfectly and enjoyed on a delightfully beautiful evening in Lincoln Park. I look forward to enjoying the Prix Fixe menu option in the near future.
We dined outdoors and it was a very windy day. We suggested the staff to open the plastic coverings but I guess
it was too late by then.
My wife's Soup got very cold fast,.
Overall experience was great!
Would definitely go back there again.
Loved our server and our food was fantastic!
we didn’t get a birthday candle on our dessert which I requested but no big deal.
Despite the wind on the sidewalk patio - hard to do anything about that - we enjoyed our experience at Mon Ami Gabi, as we have before. The service and ambience were fine. But the cuisine, which honestly has never been outstanding, only seems to have declined: flavorless steak, gloppy bearnaise sauce, tasteless green beans. Only the frites were up to par. I think of Mon Ami Gabi, at its best, as an almost magical place. Please rescue the food!
Had a lovely night out with my parents. I’ve had the steak frites every time I go and it never disappoints. The steak is tender and tasty and the fries are perfect with it. We had a really sweet waitress and just couldn’t ask for a more lovely night.
Great service AND food. Drinks are also well made and delicious. One of my favorite local Chicago restaurants. Our server Amy was fantastic - attentive and nice. Get there early for the best roasted chicken you’ll ever eat! I highly recommend this restaurant.
We never get tired of dining @ MAG. It's like dining at a close friend's home from the moment we arrive at.
