Our lunch at Mon Ami did not live up to the reviews or our friend's recommendations. I had the onion soup and mussels, both disappointing. My wife had trout almandine which could have been much better. First, a good onion soup is dark and rich; cheese covers a dried or toasted slide of bread. While the cheese was plentiful, the... More

Mon Ami Gabi was a great surprise, especially when you see it's located in a mall with chain restaurants. The French bistro is very good - excellent service and atmosphere. You have to try the French onion soup!!

I traveled from Columbus, Ohio to have lunch at Mon Ami Gabi with my girlfriends before our trip to France. This was my first time in a Mon Ami Gabi restaurant and I had a hard time deciding what to order because the menu had a great selection. We enjoyed some lovely cocktails and wine and everyone seemed to enjoy... More

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
