Lovely, classic French bistro decor. Pleasant patio (opens 3 pm in the summer) across from Lincoln Park Zoo with decent champagne by the glass. The salmon rillette is a bit uninspired, a bland sort of shredded salmon pate/salad with toasted baguette slices. Nice staff.

Summertime in Chicago can be idyllic. Eating out outside at classic country French style restaurant. Good well priced wines, great artisan bread and Bouillabaisse night. I will go back next summer and I will be sure it's Bouillabaisse night

This restaurant occupies one of the most charming spaces in Chicago. The ambience and service is excellent and the food offerings are quite good. The garden, weather permitting, is especially nice. Cocktails are not great here but wines (all French I recall) by the glass...More

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.
