Great venue for small group dining...especially couples. Great food with appropriate portion sizes - quality not quantity.

Waiter forgot our appetizers, but made up for it with complimentary desserts. We were celebrating a 65th birthday. Waiter also forgot to bring a Diet Coke twice. Eventually he brought one. Other staff was great.

We thought the food was great for value
We got the lunch special. The only thing was we were near air conditioning which led to the good getting cold. Air was blowing right on our table. None the less we had a nice time.

Food was great. We had the halibut and the hangar steak. Both were delicious. Unfortunately we were not too hungry so we didn’t have dessert or appetizers. Also Sunday special was beef Wellington which we didn’t have a chance to try.

Saturday night was hopping, and we chose to sit in the bar area to soak in the French Bistro ambiance. Noise level was lively, but we did not have to yell to hear ourselves talk - just lean in a bit. We made a meal out of appetizers, all flavorful and generously portioned - our favorite was the steak tartare, layered with fresh chives. Service was EXCELLENT - our server sought answers to our food questions from the kitchen, and provided small tastes of a few wines by the glass that allowed us to each pick our favorite pairing! (From a previous visit also recommend sitting AT the bar. The young tall bartender - soccer player - recommends perfect pairings and puts guests at ease). This is our favorite spot in OC.

The service is always good at Mon Ami. The staff is cordial and knowledgeable. The food is good and a good value generally with few exceptions. The noise level is a little loud but conversation is possible.

This bistro favorite never disappoints. Always a warm greeting at the door and a delicious menu of classics that you can order from without fail. I'm working my way through the menu trying not to get the delicious steak frites every time! Their creme brulee is my go-to for dessert and the bartender always makes a good stiff vodka martini with extra olives. Can't wait till my next visit!

This is our new favorite splurge (we call it "2-hour vacation") place to go. The lamb special was the best quality and preparation we have eaten. My eight-year-old devoured a bowl of the special pea soup. The classics are delicious (steak, fries, trout, onion soup). We highly recommend.

The place was busy & noisy. The food was good. The drinks were served in smaller martini glasses & a martini cost $12. I'd go again. They do have a happy hour where drinks & Hors d'oeuvres are 1/2 price. I think it is from 4-7 in the bar area. I'd probably try that next time.

Wonderful place for excellent food and beverages. Excellent service from servers who are very knowledgeable about the various items on the extensive menu. Ambiance is very much like a French bistro in France. We have enjoyed this Oak Brook location since it opened many years ago and still consider our favorite for special occasions.

We were celebrating my cousin’s birthday. It was our first time eating lunch at Mon Ami Gabi. We’ve been there for dinner twice, but it was my cousin’s first time. We all had the pre-fixe lunch special and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. We will definitely be making Mon Ami Gabi a regular luncheon option.

As we left Mon Ami Gabi after a wonderful dinner, I said to my husband, "Isn't that just exactly what you want in a dinner out? Great food, fabulous service, a comfortable room. Although the steaks are always superb, we both tried something different this time -- I had the fish special, a halibut steak that was tremendous, and my husband had the trout almondine from the regular menu that was just as good. One of our favorite spots!

Great experience for out of towers. A true French Bistro with no California wines!
Mark, our waiter, was fabulous. Very attentive to our requests and got us out of the restaurant in time for our theater booking. At 6:30 the restaurant was full and busy, and yet it had an intimate feel.
