Love this place, frequent visitor. The steak is seasoned so we'll, no sauce needed. The burger is excellent as well. As for the halal menu if desired, it's a special place.

Their food was prepared exceptionally.
Wine was wonderful and service was extraordinary. The only down side is the small bar/table waiting area. They need more room for guests waiting to get their tables.

The steak is the best, would highly recommend it! We also have the shrimp cocktail which came with extra large shrimp. The clam chowder soup and the creme brûlée were extra tasty!! Our server was very attentive, always there when we needed something.

Tables are close together. It is very loud so your neighbors will hear you conversation because you will need to speak over the noise. We sat behind the bar as a result there was a lot of foot traffic, and we turned our table sideways to avoid having waitstaff bumping into my husbands chair. The food here is very good. The wine selection remarkable. Mousse pate is great but we preferred the country pate which is no longer on the menu. Also the bread pudding (menu staples) are no longer on the menu. Salmon with creamed spinach delicious perfectly prepared. I will definitely try the mussels next time as recommended by our server. Every table around us had the mussels and seemed to really enjoy the sauce!

We had a terrific waiter... they have such power to make or break a dining experience. The food was great... timed well ; we didn’t feel rushed despite it being Valentine’s Day. Lovely meal.

The croque monsieur was very tasty with a bechamel sauce. The steak frites was delicious and our arugula salads were fresh. A great lunch.

When I made the reservation I had requested a quiet booth as we were celebrating Valentines Day early. I was extremely happy when I saw they gave us a corner booth. It happened to be “restaurant week” and our waiter Steve gave us a quick overview before offering us drinks. When he came back he asked if we had any questions and answered ours succinctly. It was the start of impeccable service.
We ordered the baked goat cheese appetizer and it was magnificent. When we were done, Steve asked if we wanted our entrees put in, he had previously learned that we were not in a hurry and was very accommodating to our wish. He was more interested in our experience then in “turning the table”.
When we were having our post dinner wine he informed us that we were getting desert as a way to help us celebrate. The perfect end to a great night.

The service was much too fast for a fine dining venue. I hadn't even finished my $14.00 appetizer and they were putting the main course on the table. We felt we were in an eating contest racing to the finish line.

I’ve been a fan of Mon Ami Gabi for about 8 years. I’ve been to France many times and enjoy having a little piece of France when I visit this restaurant. In fact, once, a few years ago, we brought our friends who are from France. They loved it and endorsed it as an authentic piece of their home country! Our waiter that day even spoke French! Win win! Since then I’ve enjoyed many lunches and dinners there with consistently excellent food and service. Now, fast forward to Saturday, February 8th, and we have a different story to tell. The restaurant was loud, waitstaff cool and indifferent. We had a reservation at 1:30. We arrived at 1:10 knowing we were early and prepared to sit at the bar. Service was slow and indifferent. We were later seated and my husband ordered the steak and frites. I asked for the vegetarian menu. Not much selection. I ordered the vegetarian plate. Essentially a bunch of vegetables drenched in oil and put in the microwave. Awful! And pricey! My husband did love his steak and that it was tender and good flavor. We had the rose champagne by the glass and rounded out the meal with sorbet for dessert (pear and pineapple) odd flavor mix. All in all good friendly service from waitress at our table. Overall, not worth the drive from from Naperville to Oakbrook. I’d go back and hope that maybe they will step up their game with vegetables because in France, fresh unique ways to serve vegetables is king. Mom Ami Gabi, you can do better. Quit resting on your laurels and improve your menu and quality of vegetables to be worth the price.

Celebrating my birthday with a couple of friends. Great menu choices. Great service. Noise level was outrageous! Not conversation friendly. Also, seating accommodations were cramped. Enjoyable meal, nonetheless with ample portions.

We went to Saturday brunch. It was very busy. It was difficult to hear the people that were in our party. Service was prompt. Food was delicious. I will go here again, just at a different time.

The food and the service was very good. one of the things that is missing from Mon Ami is the frittes that years ago made it distinct form other restaurants. instead they served soogy french fries! The help had no answer as to why they discontinued this delicacy. It's still a good place but it was better with the frittes.

Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful food, great service. MAG provides a nice classical French experience throughout this small-ish chain, and this location is one to be proud of.
