Great service and good food. I have been there several times and each time the food is "stable" meaning good quality and I can count on not being disappointed.

I had a wonderful third wedding anniversary lunch here with my husband and we both enjoyed the food. I had a delicious halibut entree, and my husband enjoyed his steak a'poivre.

6/16 1pm party of 7 seated promptly. Friendly front staff, restaurant was crowded. Good food and service. Unfortunately the runner dropped the entire tray of entree’s. The Mgr came over to apologize and bought several drinks. When the meals finally arrived all the sides were missing. We’ve eaten here numerous times but this was a disappointing experience.

My family always enjoys eating here. Steak Frites and cocktails are the highlights. Service is good - although the waitress we had wasn't up to Lettuce Entertain You Standards (maybe new?).

Mon Ami Gabi was not what it used to be. The French Onion soup was both overly sweet and had a bitter aftertaste. It was not umami, that is for sure. The Bordelaise was overly sweet. Just not great.

Perhaps we were there on the wrong day. We had read great reviews. The escargot was 5 or 6 s nails. Half were delicious, the other half were tough. When our entrees came one was hot...the other cold. The waiter refilled our alcoholic drinks, but never our ice tea. We skipped dessert because our service was so slow and we didn’t want to stay there any longer. If you want to spend a leisurely lunch....this is the place.

We go here a lot. The food is generally very good, as is the service. For whatever reason today, the greeter was in a bad mood and pretty rude. She should be swapped out for someone who enjoys greeting and seating customers. Not a great way to start a meal with family.

After many visits (this one was for lunch) Mon Ami Gabi is still one of my very favorite restaurants. The staff is very attentive and very very good at explaining dishes and making recommendations. I consistently like what I pick and the warm, fresh baked baguette to start is always looked forward to!

Overall, a good place to share an evening with friends. This evening, we opted to sit in the bar area, for drinks and appetizers. It is a feel good time. Our friends live NW and we live SW. Easy to get to for both.

Had another five star meal at Mon Ami! For appetizer, I had the Duck Confit. It is an amazing combination of sweet fruit and savory duck flavor, I highly recommend it for newcomers. The red cabbage and sun dried cherries have a nice hearty flavor reminiscent of Thanksgiving dinner. For my main course I had the Atlantic salmon, with its new corn salad and veloute base. Out of all the variations of the salmon, this is my favorite, the corn is filled with citrusy flavor and it blends well with the perfectly cooked salmon. For dessert I had the Blueberry Bread Cobbler. It was a great dessert, a nice light dessert to end the meal, the blueberry base blends easy with the bread pieces. A great sweet dessert. If your in the area looking for a great meal, Mon Ami is the best restaurant around!

We had the crepes. Brought my mom in for a special day out. They were presented and appeared to be over done My mom mentioned this to the waitress who did say she would let the kitchen know. My mom only ate the inside contents. This was a disappointment. We love dinning here.

The Mon Ami Gabi menu listed the ingredients for a French Manhattan and the list did NOT get include bitters. On the basis of that advertisement I ordered one.

The bartender did not follow the menu recipe and instead added bitters. Bitters make Manhattan’s both by-the-rule-book and undrinkable. That drink was a huge disappointment to me. Were it not for this, I would have listed this place as 5 stars.

Food was outstanding, but the tables were so close together that our table neighbor’s not very considerately placed hand bag took part of my friend‘s sitting space on the bench - have waiters friendly advise guests that shared space is just that.

We have eaten at Mon Ami Gabi several times before, this is the first time we were extremely disappointed. We went there for my husbands birthday and 3 of our 5 meals were poor quality. The Cesar salad was slimy and a small portion. They brought me more and just dumped the "good" salad on top of the slime. My son's steak was 50% gristle. My daughter's large french onion soup had 8 bay leaves in it. My last few experiences at Lettuce Entertain You restaurants have gone down hill and no one at the restaurant cares.

Because of “triple points”, Mon Ami Oakbrook was crowded and the sound level did increase as more diners were seated, but never to the point where one could not communicate comfortably. The salmon and spinach salad was delicious, as well as the Gazpacho we enjoyed as a first course. All paired with Mon Ami’s house pinot - a great way to continue the holiday weekend celebration.

We dine here often for special occasions and the PJ Brunches. However, we decided to have dinner on a random Tuesday night and it was the best experience we have ever had. Our server, Keith was exceptional! It was less noisy than usual. The food (smoked Salmon, steak Roquefort and frites, Filet and frites) was perfect. We will definitely be going back for non- special occasions.
