Everything was great except for the table next to us. They were very loud talkers but that’s something the restaurant can’t control.

Dave Johnson, the manager has a great memory and is very gracious.
My wife screwed up the reservation. It should have been made for 3 people, she made it for 2 and requested a booth.
Dave came in and took care of us, made everything great.
Thanks very much Dave.
Also a big thanks to Greg, the bartender. He has been at the restaurant since it opened and is always fun to talk with.

Dover sole was perfection. As usual, I had too many “frites”. My dining partners had the burger. It came a little undercooked so the Mgr took it off the check.
Mon Ami never fails to be outstanding!!

The food, service and dining room setting were excellent. We showed-up a little early to have a drink while we waited for our table. We found the bar area to be crowded with limited sitting and mobility with constant contact with people entering and leaving the dining room. We weren't able to really relax and get comfortable until we were seated.

The bartender was very slow and not friendly but we moved on to our table quickly. Our server was good but the couple beside us was arguing and we couldn’t carry in a conversation until they left.

Valentine Dinner in one of the smaller rooms in the rear provided a much quieter experience. The meal was wonderful. The staff was great. I unfortunately spilled white wine on the table, napkin and floor. The assigned waiter kindly brought another glass of wine with his compliments, but the busboy was outstanding. He took care of everything very quickly and quietly. We dine here often and will continue to do so. Each experience is delicious and terrific.

Love the place! But the food was not good. I had Lobster Bisque. It was not lobstery and lacked any flavor. I tried some salt which did not help.
I had a chicken salad with figs and arugula that was saturated with dressing. Not good. The best part was the third course which was chocolate mousse.
All in all, very disappointing.

I contacted restaurant via email. My beef dish had beef chunks that were all griddle. Had to ask waitress for anything and given incorrect check. Lucky I looked because I would have paid 40.00 more. Waitress stated she hit wrong key.. I won’t go back

Pasta and the wine was not a hit with the wife but the Salmon Tare Tare, the French Onion soup, and Streak Frites w the maitre dhotel butter were really good. Combined with the great customer service, it is definitely a place we would recommend.

I thought this would be a pleasant date night out for my husband and me but it really felt like I was at a "mall restaurant" (which I was). Our table for two was sitting practically in the middle of the room between a family with small children and another large party. The Chicago Restaurant Week menu was underwhelming and obviously cheap (omelette for a main course). The French Onion soup was honestly the worst I ever had. The service was okay but it didn't feel like a nice restaurant even once.

At 3pm for a birthday party with 9 people we were disappointed that the food came out after a
long wait and when it came out it came in 3 waves? The last person was served their meal 10 minutes after the first person, and it was a salad....food was ok? or was it the stress around the service?

Typically, we love Mon Ami Gabi Oakbrook; however, this visit fell short. We went for brunch and had to wait 15 minutes even though we had a reservation. It took a long time for our food to arrive. When it did my husbands steak eggs Benedict was hot while my smoked salmon Benedict was barely warm. I didn’t mention it to the waitress as I didn’t want to wait again and I didn’t want to ruin my husband’s meal.

We were pretty disappointed. First, we were seated at a broken table. We were moved to a better spot. The food was mediocre at best. The only thing this place has going for it is a nice wine by the bottle list. Otherwise, do not bother.

Everything was really good. Had a reservation and waited less than 5 minutes for our table. We both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly. Wasn't real thrilled with the valet service. Thought it would be free but it's $8. Then they wanted an online payment and I couldn't get it to go through, they did take cash fortunately. Next time I'll park it myself in the garage which is free and only 300 feet away.

Had a 5:30 reservation on a Saturday night when the area is very crowded. We called to tell them we would be late and when we arrived at 6:30 they had a table waiting. Our server, Eileen, was just great. The food was excellent and everything arrived at the table on a timely basis.
