Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro in an upscale Lincoln Park residential building.
Waiter was very rude and disinterested. Ambiance disappointing. Very very noisy. Good food not great. Disappointed because we’ve been in Intro Ambria. In Grand Cafe. Lobby is pretty. This space is like a coffee shop
Very solid classic French cooking in an authentic bistro atmosphere. The setting across from Lincoln Park Zoo in a historic building is perfect.
Had a wonderful meal and was very well executed by the restaurant staff. The group of 6 of us all enjoyed our entrees and starters. My steak was the perfect medium rare. We had 3 starters..oysters, escargot and baked goat cheese and were all yummy. The baked goat cheese was a recommendation and very glad we ordered it. Most of us had steak and every like their preparation. The sea trout was great too.
The food is fantastic, and the service is always above and beyond. I always have a great experience dining here.
Excellent food and service.
Celebrated our five year wedding anniversary and loved everything we ordered!
Shrimp cocktail, oysters, steak, asparagus, and fries! :)
We've been to Mon Ami Gabi several times. Each time, the entire dining experience has been memorable. From the initial greetings by the host, being seated where you want, instead of the staff's choice, the patience with our order as well as delivery of our meal, it was truly enjoyable in all aspects. Our waitperson was knowledgeable and patient, our meal wasn't rushed in any degree, and the food preparation was perfection.
Very nice meal on the patio; great service, wonderful food and exceptional ambiance.
Always a great meal. Our server was just OK. Great atmosphere and delicious food!
The food was great, beautiful restaurant on parkway across from Lincoln Park Conservatory and Zoo. Excellent service, we had a very good meal with family. There are seafood and vegetarian options
Always enjoy a meal at Mon Ami Gabi. Drinks are excellent, food choices varied, and service is excellent. We love going here when we are in town.
Typical Lettuce Entertain You restaurant with great food and service.
Good food at a reasonable price including excellent wine list. Our young waiter was an excellent server and very enjoyable.
As always good food, good service and lovely wines. Everyone enjoyed their salads, entree's and desserts. The steaks were excellent as was the sauces.
Recommend dinning here.
Superb service from Barman and butler
Great environment , feels like you are in Paris !!!
Exactly what a bistro should be. You will not be disappointed in the French onion soup, the bread and the steak frites. Nice wine selections.
Excellent overall experience.
We had a terrific server! Our wine was fantastic. The Caesar salad was perfect. The salmon was amazing and the chocolate Carmel tart was one of the best desserts I have ever had!
Tables very close together and easier to follow conversations from neighboring tables than your own
The restaurant provided the perfect atmosphere for a Sunday brunch. The food was delicious and the service excellent. As we were celebrating a birthday, we wanted a quiet, relaxed meal which is exactly what we got. I am looking forward to returning to sample other items on the menu.
We absolutely loved this place. Terrific location, amazing food, carefully curated wine selection and a vey attentive staff. I would highly recommend.
Have been frequenting Mon Ami for years! Used to live in the building. Would recommend the French Blonde cocktail!
We had a birthday brunch planned. Upon arrival we were greeted promptly and friendly; we were seated outside per our request, but the tabletop was extremely hot in the sun (we were the only group without an umbrella). The waitstaff was friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent, as always, as were the cocktails. This is an old fave, and I would highly recommend for brunch!
Love the gluten free options, so accommodating! The gluten free toast is amazing and my favorite benny in the city is definitely the smoked salmon on top of hashbrowns with extra Hollandaise :)
This is a Chicago gem! Great food which is exceeded only by great service!
11 stars out of 10
Excellent food and service as usual
We had delectable hamburgers, prepared perfectly as ordered. Ditto for profiteroles, thoughtfully divided into individual portions. It’s just hard resisting that outstanding warm bread that comes while you’re waiting.
Fabulous birthday dinner. Great service and beautiful ambiance. Will definitely be coming back!
Our server was outstanding! So was the bus "boy"!
Authentic French bistrot. Love the mussles and the trout almondine. House wines rock!
Best staff of people working there !
We had a wonderful dinner. We sat on the patio which is beautiful and much less noisy than the inside. The food was prepared perfectly and the service was excellent.
Mon Ami is in my neighborhood. I go there often. It is the best place in the area.
Have been going her for special occasions for years. Yet somehow they continue to outdo themselves in ambiance, quality and all the reasons you go out to dine for. Long live Mon Ami!!
I was rather disappointed. The service was terrible. We had David. He was nice enough but took long to get water and then bread. We ordered drinks and were done with them and he never came back for us to order another one. So we just had one and probably would have had three. One of us was drinking coffee and had to continually ask for refills. We did linger because we hadn't seen each other and David just went home and didn't even tell us and another lady came over and said David left and did we need anything but she too was leaving. This doesn't inspire me to suggest this place or go back. This is a shame, cause the food was amazing and it is such a great space and location.
Love this restaurant! Amazing Caesar salad! Terrific service. Delicious wine! We all had either the salmon or halibut special and everyone loved their meal. The fries are worth it too! Definitely coming back!
Came here for our anniversary - we had the pate and steaks Roquefort with profiteroles for dessert. Everything was delicious.
