I had a Caesar salad that was delicious--the cheese was very finely shaved and had a great taste. If you like mussels, this is the place to get them. My husband had the steak special and it was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Even though it is a "hotel restaurant," once inside, you would never know.... More

A return visit after being away, same warm comfortable atmosphere, one could almost imagine Paris other than the lack of French speakers. Chicken was outstanding, trout rated flavorful, steaks, quite a few to select from, were delicious. We shared some ice cream with fudge sauce...delightful ending.

This restaunt is French restaurant. The Restaurant's interior is classic. Good seafood and meat! このレストランはホテル内にあるとてもクラシックで雰囲気の良いフレンチレストランでした。 シーフードもステーキもどれも美味しかったです シーフードプラッターは$60しなかったと思います、ステーキは高いもので$40位でした。 オニオンスープ$9は一押しなので頼みましたが、これだけでお腹いっぱいになりそうでした。 ステーキタルタルは$17位する割には今一つでしたが… 街から離れていますが平日でもたくさんの人ではいれない可能性高いので要予約です。

We came on a Sunday with a reservation for five. We were seated a few minutes ahead of our reservation time. Our waitress came right over to introduce herself & took our drink orders. We all collectively had Bloody Mary's, which were good but had slightly too much pepper flavor. Our waitress throughout the meal, even despite a slight backup... More

This place is amazing! I highly suggest making a reservation. We arrived at our reservation time, but our table wasn't ready. The manager gave us a complimentary Handmade Burrata Cheese appetizer for our wait. I didn't really care for it. We also ordered the Jumbo Crab Cake. It was so good! I had the Filet Mignon Au Poivre and my... More

Tripsters- Our friends visited us last weekend from OKC and I wanted to take them somewhere elegant and fun for brunch. I had been to Mon Ami Gabi once before and liked it so I made us a reservation.

It was our first time dining at this French Bistro in Chicago, and a very enjoyable one. Excellent selection of wines, and the bartender makes the perfect Vesper and martinis. Food and service are excellent as well; no parking in the neighborhood, but there is valet parking.

We have gone to Mon Ami Gabi several times and every time it's a winner. There is a casual atmosphere much like a French Bistro. The staff is all very professional and accommodating. The food is always great and there is a nice wine list. I would highly recommend Mon Ami Gabi. I would also highly suggest the other two... More

Description
Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro and steakhouse. While the favorites are all here in abundance, there is always something new to try from the ever-evolving menu. The traditional menu features classics such as the warm Onion Soup Au Gratin, Frisee & Bacon Salad with a soft-poached egg and croutons, Roast Chicken grand-mere style with mushrooms, bacon and pearl onions, as well as the trademark Steak Frites. To complement the cuisine, an extensive selection of over 80 boutique French wine varietals are served by the glass or bottle from our signature rolling wine cart. Guests will enjoy the airy interior with our large French windows opening out onto the Lincoln Park Conservatory, or in the summer months, the lovely outdoor garden. Please Note: Reservations are taken for indoor seating only. Outdoor patio seating is available on first-come, first-serve bases.
