Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mon Ami Gabi. You’ve done the world some good today.

Nice ambiance,,,average food..lousy service

Serving us was a chore to our waitress. Everything was an effort. Her attitude dampened our whole experience and the food, while some items were very good, were not good enough to offset the poor service. French Onion Soup was bland and lacked any depth. Probably the worst we ever had. Halibut and scallops were cooked well.\r Don't think we'll visit this place again.

Vaguely disappointing

This wasn't our first visit -- and I truly don't know why we returned. I guess we forget -- it's a pretty popular place, so we keep thinking it'll be wonderful. Except it's not. Nice wine list -- but $15 Kir Royales left us feeling cheated. The pommes frites are just plain awful -- the traditional French version are delightful, and these are tiny and hard and disappointing. The pork shank was too much bone and fat, a... view more

Great French for a great price! Delicious overall!

This is one of the best places to go in Chicago for affordable, quintessential French food without the heavy price tag, or the snooty staff. Very friendly and personable staff. Neighborhood feel. The onion soup has it's good and iffy days, but always melts in your mouth. My only problem is that the menu is very limited. Mostly meat and some sort of potato, there are some good fish options. Generous portions; I love h... view more

Regrettably disappointing...sigh

For more than 20 years we've gone to Mon Ami Gabi and its predecessor in the same location Un Grand Cafe. Our most recent visit was more than disappointing (i) two steaks ordered were clearly of an inferior cut or grade of beef - were not done as ordered and frankly on the tough and chewy side (ii) coffee delivered with caffeine rather than without (iii) a New York strip, usually highly reliable - was done correctl... view more

Very Romantic

IT can be very romantic especailly if you sit in the back room. I went on a friday night and i was plesently suprised that the noise level was down the whole time i was there. The food is delicious as well as the wine. My one problem is that we arrived on time for a 9:30 reservation but waited untill ten to be seated. After that the service was great. It is a little bit of paris in chicago.

Don't Forget Paris.

Mon Ami Gabi has a very special place in my heart by combining the essence of my two favorite cities, Paris and Chicago. After spending 4 months in France, I became accustomed to the typical Parisian bistro fare, and Mon Ami Gabi captures it with complete authenticty and grace. Combine the quality of the food with the quaint bistro decor and the ambiance of Lincoln Park, and you've got a formula for a tasty and eup... view more

Good, but not outstanding

I took my girlfriend here for her b-day. The waitress helped us select a very good bottle of wine, althought the ""wine cart"" I heard so much about was never used. The escargots and patte were excellent. The lobster bisque was less than exciting for $9 (I've had better at soups and scoops). The steak was good, but nothing that I'd order again. The big suprise was the service. The waitress was fine, but I had to... view more

We went here last night and sat outside. The weather was perfect and it only added to the already great dining experience! The food was excellent, service was very attentive and efficient, and the desserts were incredible! I highly recommend this restaurant!

French Wonderland

I have been to Mon Ami Gabi three times. Each time I get the same thing, STEAK ROQUEFORT, what a delicious meal. Steak is made to order, with a roquefort butter sauce, that is to die for..... Presentation is wonderful. Stacked with french style fries, mmmmm. A must for steak lovers.....

We showed up early for 8pm reservations, and were ushered to the over-priced bar for what turned out to be a too long wait. The staff was nice, however, and once we were finally seated things went smoothly. The food, while not incredible, was quite good and well worth the wait. We were a bit disappointed to learn Mon Ami Gabi is part of a chain as we were hoping for a Chicago original. Overall, pretty good but not gr... view more
