“Evokes fond memories of Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

It's not Paris, but a partial, convenient substitute if you're in need of a fix. Baguette and butter start that process. Onion soup. Crepes. Recommend seafood crepe at lunch. On this trip, fish and frites was sampled with good results. A bit unconventional prep, but a welcomed change. Crowded and noisy as usual. Like a bistro full of tourists!

“Incredible service above and beyond call of duty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

I had a business dinner, the wait staff was incredible and the food amazing. Fresh favors, wonderful wine and attentive staff. Then I realized my travel wallet was lost and hoped it fell out of my purse. I called the next morning and Willie answered the phone and took time out of a busy morning crowd to not only search for it but found it, physically brought it to me. Angel sent from heaven.

“Great ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

This is a great restaurant with wonderful ambience, extremely good service and above average food. Comparing it to the Chicago restaurant, I think this falls a little short but I would still recommend it enthusiastically. We had an absolute delightful waitress who had extraordinary posture employees.

“Great happy hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

We love their happy hour! Bottles of wine are $16 and their onion soup is absolutely delicious at $5...all during happy hour 4p to 7p on weekdays. Great service too.

“Great ambiance and delicious food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Mon Ami Gabi succeeds in having the perfect balance if sophisticated, European ambiance, delicious food, friendly and knowledgeable service all at a reasonable price. It's special enough for an anniversary dinner or special occasion yet comfortable, without that chain restaurant feeling. I had called ahead for a reservation and noted it was an anniversary and was pleasantly surprised with a pair of glasses with champagne. Nice touch.
