Fodor's Review

Although there are now satellite restaurants in the Chicago suburbs and across the country, the original Mon Ami Gabi has not lost its charm. This little piece of Paris re-creates a classic bistro with views of Lincoln Park that could pass—with the help of a couple of glasses of vin from the wine cart—for the Tuileries. Park-front windows let in ample natural light, warming the wood-trimmed interior. Best bites include several versions of steak frites, as well

as bistro essentials such as steamed mussels and skate with crispy garlic chips. The menu features a rotating list of specials, such as cassoulet and pan-seared sea bass.

Great Pommes Frittes !!!

A friend recommended "Mon Ami" and I thought what a cool name but the food is tremendous, the bar has great drinks and the steak and pomme frittes are the best. Service is great and we have made some great memories at this lil bistro. Go today... you will love it..

What a disappointment

We had visited the Mon Ami Gabi in Vegas for lunch and really enjoyed it. The Chicago version is WAY overpriced, has abysmal service, and adequate food. Go to Brasserie Jo instead.
