The trout was uninspired. The steak frites was excellent. French onion soup is the best ever had. The Caesar salad had too much cheese on top and the croutons were weird shaved pieces of old bread. The outdoor option has no ambiance. They should shut it down or work on making it more cozy.

Food was excellent. Our server, John Lester was super attentive. It was crowded which made it a little loud but I think that was part of the ambience.

Overall good food, service, etc. but will never atain sit outdoors in their tent in cold weather. Before making reservation, I inquired regarding the tent and heating, and was assured it was comfortable, possibly needing a light sweater. Was not my experience.

You really needed to dine in your coat. The heating was simply not sufficient for the somewhat colder and very windy night. 1 star for ambience of the tent.

Luckily the excellent food and good service negated much of the cold.

Our party was seated in the outdoor enclosure and found the ambience and heat just fine. We observed mask wearing by staff and patrons upon entry. At some point, our entire order ticket got lost in the kitchen but the manager apologized and comp'd us dessert (which like the dinner, was delicious).

I graded low on "food" because my steak was so awful that I ate one bite and then said I was full from appetizers and would take the rest home. In reality, I didn't want to cause any disruption in what otherwise have been a perfect night, so I tossed the leftovers in a garbage on the way to the car (street parking, yea!). This has been my favorite restaurant since Une Grande Cafe days. My husband's steak and our friends' meals were perfect. I drew the short straw. Going back Dec. 20 for dinner. I might get the salmon.

Greeter at the door didn't offer a chance to sit at the bar when a member of our party had clear issues with standing. Minimal seating in lobby was all taken. All it would take was to bring an additional chair out...would that be so hard? I found his treatment off-putting.

The service was horrible. The appetizer was cold and unappealing in presentation. The lardons on my salad frisee about broke my teeth. Left before dessert ...because no one came to our table for 40 minutes after we'd finished our course.

Always a good resturant but a little disappointed in the fish selections. I was disappointed in what I think was farm raised salmon, nothing special about it.

Celebrated a birthday brunch with friends. Good food choices and everything was very tasty. Surprised they are charging for bread now- thought that was not a good addition. Server was very attentive and checked in with us several times. I wanted a cappuccino and was surprised and disappointed that they did not offer any alternative milk options, as I have a problem with dairy. Lettuce usually is very accommodating about things like this. I feel they should add it to the kitchen offerings. Additionally, they don't take Apple Pay or mobile pay, which I was surprised. This would also be a good option for them to offer.

We were seated on the porch which I have never liked as much as the inside. Other than that, we had a pleasant evening.

Usually we love this restaurant. I asked for lite dressing on my Caesar salad and it was as if they loaded it with extra dressing. The pomme frites we ordered with dinner arrived ten minutes after our entrees arrived with no apologies. Clearly the server forgot. The best part of the meal was dessert.

I wish I could remember our server gal’s name, but she was an absolute DELIGHT!!! She was attentive and super kind the entire evening.
Food came out super fast. All three of us had some form of steak frites - it was good. The broth that the mussels were in was delicious however the mussels themselves weren’t good. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience and love all of the lettuce entertain you concepts.

The acoustics at our table by the door were a little weird. We could hear the table behind us clearly but not each other.

Food was EXCELLENT. GET DESSERT.

Steak frites was absolutely immaculate. The wine selection was exquisite. The baked goat cheese was everything. Service was excellent and everyone was friendly. It’s casual enough to wear almost anything and go for a casual good dinner, or fancy enough to celebrate something. It’s a super comfortable environment with dim lighting and well spaced out seating. Love mon ami gabi!

Amazing food and fantastic service. I chose Mon Ami Gabi for my boyfriends birthday dinner because of the reviews and was not disappointed in the slightest. From the ambience and decor to the amazing food.

They even brought out a birthday dessert with a candle because i selected birthday in Open Table. It was an awesome surprise for the both of us, because booking the reservation I had no clue they were going to do that!

I plan to be back!

I've been going here regularly for years. But, with the pandemic, this was my first visit to a restaurant (any restaurant) in 18 months. It was like getting together with an old friend again. Nothing has changed. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Las Vegas and when we realized there was one in Chicago we had to book a table. Food is always great (order the baguette for the table) and love the steak frite varieties. One of us is French and also loves the food. Save room for profiteroles or crème brûlée!
