    Mon Ami in Lincoln Park is a snapshot of a traditional French bistro venue. Everything is great: warm French baguette, New York strip and, of course, creme brûlée!! All is VERY good!

    Great eavesdropping at this cozy resto; while you're pretending not to be nosy, try an order of frites and escargot to start; fish dishes are really good, and the desserts are pretty solid.

    A twist on the classic French dish, the beef bourguignon benedict features an English muffin, poached egg, hollandaise, beef cheeks, celery, onion and carrot in a red wine sauce. Read more

    Awesome Value. Tuesdays they offer Duck L'Orange which is to die for. Their Fish & Frites is light & tasty and their Steak & Frites options are amazing. High quality meat :)

    The escargots were super disappointing - skip them. My friend had the Bordelaise steak, which I tried a bite of and highly recommend.

    If you like Mon Ami, you MUST go to the Lincoln Park location. The setting feels like you're in a classic movie!

    Went for brunch and was disappointed. Nothing was terrible but nothing all that memorable. Have heard dinner is better though.

    The filet with the merlot butter reduction is the best steak in the city. Seriously.

    Les escargots sont magnifiques avec du pain chaud. Like buttah. Or literally, as they're swimming in about two sticks' worth.
