I have very fond memories of past Bon Ami Gabi. It was a beautiful evening of delicious food, great service, and lovely place to share a Special meal with Friends who are newlyweds.
They were delighted with everything.I will visit again, soon, because to go to Mon Ami Gabi at this particular time in my life this is very special and so heartwarming. Thank you Mon Ami Gabi for living up to my expectations.👍☺️

Great atmosphere, great food and wine menu. Service was a bit slow but fine overall. Probably mostly driven by how busy the place was. Would definitely recommend

Amazing steaks with fantastic sauces, and easily one of the best Old Fashioneds I've ever tasted. Great service and outstanding value to boot. Awesome place for a classier date.

This favorite appears to be on a downward slope since reopening after pandemic-related closing. It's still good, but inconsistent, and the menu has let go of certain favorites (oysters, salmon tartare among others). The service has also become inconsistent-- especially the hostess who seems to ignore preferences and arbitrarily assign whomever she decides to the various tables, even when the requested ones are available. Instead of the friendly welcome previous hosts and hostesses would always show, the current crew (or at least the one on duty on this last visit) seemed totally uncaring, and dismissive. I used to go at least twice a month to MAG, but I probably will not be going back anytime soon.

This is one of those places that never disappoints - even with a shortened menu. Would have liked a little more wine knowledge (by the bottle) but "the popular one" of our potentials was nice. We were a little early and two other tables were dawdling - so our table was by the work station - not ideal - but we were outside in October so that was OK! 3 steaks frites cooked (differently) and perfectly. Nice portion size on frites. The Gem salad was so fresh and bright - the perfect complement to the steak.

Pre fixe dinner was superb. Amazing salad of endive, radicchio, apple and toasted pecans was HUGE. Thought I’d eat half. But no. It’s gone!
Bread outstanding.
Pasta had tons of wild mushrooms. Very delicious. Dessert was bug but the waiter suggested taking one home.
We will return.

Everything was wonderful. The waiter very attentive (Mica) as the hostess I couldn’t have been happier. My guests loved their choices and we ordered every dessert and loved them all. The apple pie was not as good as the others but still good

We had a lovely birthday celebration dinner at Mon Ami Gabi last night in Lincoln Park. We loved the escargot appetizer, and our salads and main courses (Dover Sole, and gigantic bone in Rib Eye) were delicious! Profiteroles and chocolate mousse for our desserts were all delicious as well. Our server was very good!

The menu is limited...if you are into the French type of 'entrecôte' they have it..and they are generous sizes. French onion soup was short on onions and big on bread. The duck confit was good. the apple desert was wonderful with a Carmel sauce and vanilla ice cream.

Been there previously many years ago - when Ambria was still around. Still has the great atmosphere and the bistro standards. The service was a bit uneven - the server got some of our order wrong - didn't really specify which cocktail was which and put them in front of the wrong people. Food was good - very tasty mussels and a soft steak - the frites were a bit dry. I'd still visit for the ambiance and the wonderful building (the Belden-Stratford) in which it is located.

Fabulous ambiance! French bread, carrot spread and butter was delicious. Endive Radicchio salad and Duck confit were great starters. My companion had a well executed tasty Dover Sole fish(make sure to order 24hrs before your dinner time). The Sancerre white wine was a great pairing for our meal choices. However, I was disappointed with my Moules Mariniere(steamed mussels), they were too small and some looked dehydrated and tasted rubbery. I realized that living in a city that is not surrounded by the Ocean you hardly get good quality seafood. The Dinner menu has other appealing exciting options I will order next time I visit. Our female server was Superb!

Fantastic experience! The roast chicken is honestly the best thing I've ever had in my life. Fireworks-in-the-eyes-at-the-first-bite level good. The service was wonderful, and the outdoor dining is perfect. Overlooking park views as the sun set, enjoying good food - who could ask for more?

Bibb salads, steak and frites, mussels and frites, Brie burger and frites and trout. All great, only the trout had too much butter to our taste. Great service.

Thank you Thank you Thank you!

You made my daughter feel very special for her 11th birthday and she was in awe that everyone “remembered” her and that so many of you were aware of her birthday.

It was a small request in the reservation process and you all nailed it!

Please remember that what you do is special. And noticed. And truly appreciated!! You made a difference for a little girls birthday and we cant wait for next year.

True hospitality! Thank you.

We were sitting outside. Good heating lamps. All of the staff were so helpful. I can't walk stairs and they were so helpful with that, though the bathroom still requires stairs but thankfully it wasn't an issue. I had a terrific tomato salad and the trout which I love. Their baguette they bring to every table is terrific. I had a pretty healthy meal so I could have dessert. They have terrific profiteroles which have three pieces. I only ate one but literally it's plenty for three. Before Covid I used to eat inside which is nice too. Grubhub also delivers them but no profiteroles.
