Mon Ami Gabi - Oakbrook, IL Restaurant Review
Mon Ami Gabi in Oakbrook is one of my favorite restaurants to dine at in all of Illinois. The food is fantastic and the entire staff, including management, is always top-notch every single visit I make to this establishment.
I could be called a regular at this restaurant for how often my wife and I have eaten here. Pre-Covid, I would come to this restaurant at least once a week or more with my wife. I befriended the waitstaff and the management and missed the warm welcome and good food that I could always depend on.
It had been about a year and I made my first visit back to dine in and enjoy the good food and relaxing atmosphere. As soon as I walked through the door, the manager Dan Diaz welcomed my wife and I in a warm old friend manner. He asked us how we have been doing and said that it had been a long time since we had last dined in. The restaurant was packed and I had no reservation. Dan immediately told us that it was not a problem and that we could have a table prepared for us in the back room. Dan was not the only one who made me feel special while dining in the restaurant. The waitstaff, busboys, and food runners all welcomed us and made us feel like we were visiting a friend’s home.
The food here is fantastic and very consistent with quality and taste. The steak is delicious and always prepared to my preference. The appetizers are amazing. My wife and I started with the caesar salad. The lettuce was perfectly crisp and the dressing was very flavorful and delicious. I absolutely love their French baguette that always pairs well with our appetizers.
For our main course, my wife and I always order the steak and frites. I personally love the
Bordelaise. The steak is cooked with caramelized onions in red wine sauce served with frites. My wife ordered the Roquefort. This steak comes in a creamy blue cheese sauce with frites. We ordered an additional side dish of Macaroni Gratin. This dish was creamy and delicious with the perfect amount of cheese.
Mon Ami Gabi is definitely a top-notch restaurant. The food is always consistent and the staff treats the customers like family. I will definitely be back and I give this restaurant a rating of 10 out of 10.
