    There are so many reasons to love this restaurant. The food, the service from our server, Mark M, the friendly ambience, and the lovely music that isn’t too loud! My sister and I have Celiac disease and must be gluten free. There is no problem finding numerous wonderful dishes. Very happy here.

    Horrible brunch, hot and humid. Could not get my money back because I used open table. A very rigid reservation system in place. You must pay for your reservation or lose your deposit even though there was no air conditioning. Hotter than the hot and humid outdoors. Appalled at wine list paid 56 for a 2019 Loumerlat Bordeaux that is 5 in France 12 in the the US. A markup on an average at best 2019 to 56 says it all. It will be lovely later, but not 56 lovely. This place was once my favorite and has become ridiculous. I love the wines of the Blayne but Loumerlat would be embarrassed to serve the 2019 for 56 right now. No apologies for broken air conditioning. Lies the kitchen is hot it will cool down after the lunch rush hour is over. A series of excuses and lies continued. Only the busboy was honest that air had been broken all day. Would have been fine simply with an offer to walk away with my reservation refunded. Instead a series of excuses and lies tarnished the once excellent reputation of this restaurant. I asked about the A/C before being seated and wanted to leave. Said it was only a temporary inability to keep up with a hot kitchen. Said it would cool quickly. Lying staff must feel terrible about themselves,their jobs and this new low for a once gem in my neighborhood. The Mussels were great but not under these unfortunate circumstances. The rest of the food and the service were well below average for Chicago. You had to pay to get a baguette. It was not included. Can you imagine any restaurant calling themselves a French Bistro and not serving a baguette with the Moules? We were so disgusted we did not order the baguette. No longer a French Bistro an odd and culturally irrelevant money making chain. Stay away. So many young French chefs arriving with authentic bistro fare. This is the place to go for those who prefer the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas over Paris. If you want authentic French it has disappeared

    Food and service was great. And they gave us a free dessert for my son's wedding proposal to his fiance. We sat right next to the kitchen door which practically came off its squeaky hinges as the staff took care of their customers.

    Don't let the fact there's multiple iterations of this restaurant in other states fool you. Amazing quality French especially the duck confit, escargot and mussels. I am less experienced but multiple foodie associates with me called the filet mignon top 10 steaks they have ever had. Service decent but not beyond spectacular as expected of such a restaurant.

    The food was excellent--tomato salad, frisee and bacon salad, skate wing (no sauce), and moules and frites, finished with outstanding profiteroles. The service was not as attentive as usual, but acceptable. The room is great and the people always interesting. Mon Ami Gabi is on our regular rota of Chicago restos.

    The staff at Mon Ami Gabi were very helpful when our party grew from four to seven last minute. As always, the service and food were stellar. As it was my son's 20th birthday, we celebrated here as we do for most important family events. We were not disappointed and know we can always count on Mon Ami Gabi for a wonderful experience.

    I always wanted to try brunch - but it was not near the dinner level. The food was very underwhelming, every thing fell our of a bag, even the drinks were ok. I had better brunch experience anywhere - not a recommended place for brunch - but it is great for dinner. It felt that i was in another restaurant not the one I go for dinner very often, I was shocked how bad it was -

    As always a pleasure to spend a summer afternoon on the patio at Mon Ami Gabi. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our server very attentive. The baguettes as always the best, so much so that as usual we needed to take dessert home. The mousse is too good to pass up.

    Mon Ami Gabi does not disappoint. Even under the shadow of two cranes from the adjacent road construction, the ambience on the patio was pleasant, as was the service. The food was outstanding. Perhaps the best confit of duck I have ever tasted anywhere, including many in France, and a fabulous berry crumble which, despite its size, I managed to eat all by myself, while my better half was busy enjoying her chocolate mousse. Both of us very happy.

    Our go to date night location. Our server was amazing. Unfortunately we do not recall her name. She was very knowledgeable and very encouraging of our decision to order a crème brûlée to start our meal. She also checked in with us enough to know we were cared for but not intrusively. The halibut was delicious with a perfectly truffled sauce. The roasted chicken was amazing to the point that my girlfriend cried when we realized her leftovers were in the car overnight.

    Just thinking about you guys and how a little eccentric it is there - nobody dresses up, waiters are not slick but very nice, mistress D was nice, and the place inside and out was filled up on a Tuesday by 5:00 p.m.! Always older folks like it, and some people from different ethnic groups. Yes, salad #1, creme brûlée #2, steak fine, chicken #1, onion soup #1!!! Next time filet. Wish there was a photo and free dessert for our 35th anniversary (as Capital Grill always does).

    It had been a while since we had been back, so we were so pleased to find that everything we had liked about this fine restaurant remained. Our guests at Sunday brunch were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, so our meal started with a delicious but not overly expensive champagne. The meals that followed - Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Steak Eggs Benedict and Moules Mueniere were perfectly prepared and tasty. The kitchen surprised the happy couple with a profiterole topped with a candle to honor the special occasion. Amanda, our server, made good recommendations and saw to our every need in a friendly and efficient manner. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We hosted a brunch to celebrate a friend's birthday--Everything was delightful as always at Mon Ami. The mimosas, smoked salmon plate, goat cheese quiche, frisee salad and desserts were all delicious. My advice would be to skip the eggs benedict however. The eggs and hollandaise perfect but even though served with a steak knife it was still impossible to cut through the hard as tack toast! Messy and a big disappointment. But all in all, a happy experience enjoyed by all.
