Our waitress was excellent. We were interested in having their pate which was not on the current lunch menu. She was able to get the appetizer for us. The Express Lunch was an excellent value and delicious.

First, we ordered the duck special. It was out, which we were told 5 minutes later. Service was perfunctory. No passion and no real attention to detail. Split the snails. One fork served with the fish and no share plates. Scallops were very meh. Like they were not the freshest. Really nothing we had was a wow. It was not an awful experience but I really don’t think anyone cared. Check backs were late and irrelevant. The chair I sat on was shaky. The wine ( a bottle I ordered ) was good, but over poured like the server was pushing a second bottle. It’s been 10 years since I have been to Mon Ami. It might be another 10 before I go back. I eat out 4 to 5 nights a week. Too many better choices in the neighborhood, let alone downtown. I live in oak Park so either direction is convenient. This restaurant needs real direction and someone with some passion. Come on, Gabino. You are WAY better than this.

Mon Ami remains one of my favorite places. This time, however, the special I chose was a little disappointing (under seasoned and a bit tough), and the escargot seemed ever so slightly off fresh. Service, wine recommendation, salad and dessert were top notch!

My wife, myself & daughter dined here on a Friday night. We made reservations. I got there early and I had a martini at the bar. They have a happy hour with 1/2 priced drinks from 4-7pm. The food was good. My wife ordered a steak that had a lot of gristle and the manager took the item off the bill. He apologized for the entrée not being up to their standards. My scallop entrée was excellent. They have a gluten free menu which my daughter ordered off. I'd go back again.

As always, MonAmi was outstanding! We enjoyed the scallops and the flounder - both delicious, well proportioned and enhanced with tasty vegetables on the side. We also added an order of Brussel sprouts - so good and a must try. The service was terrific- attentive but we were left alone as needed for lots of conversation. A great place for dining in OakBrook!

Mon Ami Gabi is good. Strangely, the delicious, outstanding cheeseburger (Jarlsburg or blue are both great) is one of the best lunch options, especially on the weekends, as their brunch menu has taken over (as it has at too many places if you ask me). Except for a few mundane salads which are characteristically small for the price, steak frites for $24, a few sandwiches, quiche, crepes and a special that's a fish dish, the remaining options are breakfast, ho hum or way, way too sweet and not particularly French, if you ask me. For around 50 bucks for 2 to dine at lunch, Mon Ami Gabi is good, but not great. My friends and I dine here for the ambiance more than the food, and it's nice when (if you allow texts), they offer free items, such as a Caesar salad, which normally sells for $10.95.

I ordered duck special and was assured it was available. The waiter confirmed the last piece was being prepared for me. Then, the manager came and told me the tragic news, there was no more duck. I guess the bird escaped the butcher’s knife.
Very disappointing.
However, they did everything to make up for it. I got another dish without charge plus wine and desert.
Only reputable restaurant would do that.
I was pleased since this was my second time eating here this week and I would not expect anything less.

Attentive knowledgeable service. Really good tarter served with bread right as we sat down.
Our waitress and buss service was outstanding. We had scallops, trout and a side of really good frites. Good cocktails and soup.

Better than the much more crowded Maggiano's next store.

Love this bistro. Friday nights means they are serving Dover Sole. It's expensive but such a treat. However it used to be served with a lemon Beurre Blanc sauce that puts the current lemon butter sauce to shame. Come on Mon Ami Gabi, doesn't anyone have the skill necessary to make this sauce again? Bruce Williams, what say you?

The pear salad was delicious. The hamburger was ordered medium rare but served well done and the french fries were cold. The butter had no flavor at all. Our server was professional but not friendly. Overall, a below average experience.

While the server was very accommodating (after a fiasco of seating me at a different table from a friend), the food (skate wing) was not superb as it used to be. The cauliflower side didn’t seem fresh either.
I love this restaurant, but this outing was not the greatest.

We ordered and told the staff I had food allergies to all seafood and mushrooms. I was particularly wary of the frites being cooked in common oil with seafood. I was assured allergies are taken seriously. I received my steak and pomme frites, with no pomme frites but rather a heaping plate of mushrooms! It was quickly replaced. I feared the replacement platter would not have the same attention to allergies, but I did not get ill. I admit I would think twice before returning.
