I do enjoy this restaurant. They have an excellent wine selection, try the Sancere it's outstanding! Management made a decision that has disappointed me. They have removed the outstanding fish and frites. One of my absolute favorites. Please bring it back. I know I won't be going back to often with out this dish on the regular menu.

You just can’t go wrong with Mon Ami Gabi. I know it is a chain (four around the country) and part of a larger chain (Lettuce Entertain You). Yet it still keeps me wanting to come back for more. Fabulous service. Excellent food. Outstanding wine list. Great ambiance. And grab a seat outside if you can. Took my parents here... More

What comes from the kitchen at Mon Ami Gabi is the results of true artists at work, patiently assembling all the materials of their craft, just as a painter squeezes oil colors onto his palette to create a masterpiece. The food at Mon Ami Gabi looks beautiful, tastes exquisite, smells wonderful, makes you feel good, inspires romantic feelings...

Because France was playing Germany in the quarter finals, we thought we would pretend we were in Paris and came to the Oak Brook location near our home. Icy oysters, refreshing Badoit, and their two wonderful cheese sandwiches (the grilled cheese special and the croque monsieur) served with frites were perfect! Too bad France lost!

Stop in for a bite with wife and kids. Love the goat cheese...need to control myself to leave room for the rest. Caramelized onion-scallops are delicious, just not enough of them.... My steak was average, but I don't consider it a steakhouse. The fries soaking in the butter sauce always pleases though. I wish they had chocolate soufflé available more... More

I was really looking forward to Mon Ami. I read they specialized in Steak Frites. I have had Steak Friets all over including Paris. We were disappointed. The steak was less than ½ thick. I would have preferred a smaller length and thicker. Much more flavor. Also the friets were not fully cooked. I prefer my friets crispy. If I... More

Last year, for our 25th wedding anniversary, we were in France. This year, we dined at a french restaurant. My husband & I decided that we were coming back before we had even been served our meal. The ambience was very nice, our server Keith was knowledgable, patient and kind and the manager, Matt, was attentive & generous as well!... More

The food, when we got it, was pretty good. I had the Hangar Steak, which was excellent. The service was very slow, however. Wine was not that great. All in all, I thought the place was overpriced for what was served, and the service. It was ok, but there are too many other places I would rather go, after visiting... More

While shopping at the oakbrook mall, we stopped to grab a quick lunch. The service was only okay, the food was very good though, and the outdoor dining was nice. Nothing really too exciting to rave about, but its nice because of the distance from the mall. We waited a very long time to have our order taken, and then... More

Have had one or two good experiences, but one bad experience when of the two lamb chops served, one was cold and undercooked and the other over cooked. The restaurant is a cute idea, small European in feeling and the outdoor seating is nice in our warmer weather. You can take a chance here, but our preference is to head... More
