As always a great place to dine but in these difficult times of COVID-19, the team was even more focused on making sure that we felt safe and served with the best standards.
Too bad restaurants are close for a few weeks. We will be back as soon as the closures are lifted.

Great food and service. I had the Dover Sole-yum!
My friend had the steak frites that she loved.
We visited last Saturday night and appreciated all the Covid-19 measures they were taking.

A surreal experience a couple of nights before the place closed for the Covid-19 virus.

Selected to dine here because they offer L’escargot as an appetizer. It was good. Rib-eye steak was excellent. Overall experience was average. Not what one expects from an “upscale” French restaurant.

I made our reservations almost a month in advance and yet we were seated in the back room with zero ambiance. Our wait server was very slow.

Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Our waiter knew the menu and when we alerted him to the time table for our play tickets at Drury Lane he made sure we were out in time to make the show.

Great meal, great service, great ambience - all at a reasonable price. 5 PM on a Sunday was just before the crowd arrives, so go early to avoid waiting - and arrive early to find a parking place. Oakbrook Mall has heavy traffic, but always space in the parking garage if you don't mind a bit of a walk to the restaurant.

I had an entree (steak and frites) but will go back to my french onion soup next time. Frites were only warm, and in a pile like they had sat somewhere for awhile before getting to me. The steak was good tho.

We went to Sunday brunch for my fathers 80th birthday.
Front of the house staff are gracious and friendly.
The server was slow and inattentive. The French onion soup for which they are known came out luke warm.
Our dishes were not cleared and there was a lag of about 25 minutes between starter course and entree. I am Disappointed !

Saturday @6:30pm reservations, friendly front staff seated promptly. One of my wife’s fav places. Relaxing atmosphere. With that said, Service was slow, lacked attention. Trout was good but steak was stuff and fries were cold. Disappointing dining experience.

Honestly, we came for the vegan menu and at 6pm when our reservation was, they were out of their main vegan dish.

The food was excellent, though very rich. As someone with a sensitive stomach, I was not able to eat my entire meal due to how rich it was, but the food was of excellent quality and very tasty. I would have enjoyed the atmosphere a bit more if the staff had not tried to place so many tables in one small space, and the atmosphere was very cramped overall. However, I did enjoy myself very much and I would definitely recommend this place to others.

We have long enjoyed our visits to Mon Ami Gabi, and have celebrated our last 6 or 7 anniversaries there. The food is always good, often exceptional. I had the Saturday Special. The petite filets were excellent, the tater tots, a first for me, were not. In my opinion, they should be replaced with your excellent pommes frites.

The room was quiet for a restaurant which was nice. The fresh, warm bread and spread were great. The rest of the food was fair. I had salmon on the spinach salad with lentils. The lentils were flavorless. I told the waitress and she did nothing. The salmon and spinach were ok once I drenched them in lemon. My husband had filet but couldn't have the sauces because of dietary restrictions. The filet itself was a mediocre piece of meat without the sauce. The waitress couldn't or wouldn't accommodate his request for a garlic and olive oil prep instead of the sauces they offer which contain dairy and gluten. The cappuccino was good.

Lovely French inspired restaurant. Great salmon appetizer. Hot bread and onion soup.
Three-petite filets with Bearnaise and Roquefort sauce terrific tender meat and divine sauce. All items good with Bearnaise sauce. Nice cocktails. Great deserts.
Good happy hour drinks and appetizers during the week. Special wine dinners once a month.
Weekend Brunch
Everything in house is made from scratch and very good.

Was great to see Quiche Lorraine on the Saturday brunch menu. Happy to see Mon Ami signature bread served as usual. Did think the bacon and cheese omelette was somewhat small; however, it was tasty.

I love Mon Ami Gabi! The only reason I deducted a star was because when I searched for reservations I searched the main Chicago area, but was given a location in Oak Brook. I was unaware that there was more than one location and when I arrived I discovered I had mistakenly made the reservation at the Oak Brook location rather than Lincoln Park location in which, I had intended. The staff was very accommodating and sat us at a table within a few minutes despite being quite busy. They said this happens at least ONCE A WEEK. The manager said they have reached out to OpenTable to help combat this issue but have not gotten a response. So hopefully this will help the restaurant or another consumer to avoid this mistake!

Steve is a great waiter! He owns the place and can manages the room. He listens to the needs of the diner and paces the dinner to their needs! We always felt well cared for. Steve is Amazing! Food is spectacular as well! Steak is always delicious the Bearnaise sauce never disappoints! The scallops with farro and cauliflower was so well balanced I could not put it down! We love this place!
