It is our "go-to" for Sunday early dinner when friends are visiting (they open at 5pm). The skate wing is delicious, the oysters are always wonderful, the caesar salad is divine, but it is the Beef Wellington (often on the specials menu) that surpasses them all!!!! C'est magnifique!
The atmosphere is cosy with lots of dark wood in a Paris brasserie style and they have a lovely outdoor area in the summer months. Formidable!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love dining at MonI always love dining at Mon Ami Gabi. Everything from the service, to the food, to the atmosphere is always wonderful. My recent visit to Mon Ami Gabi did not disappoint either - I was with a friend to celebrate her birthday and we both had wonderful dinners and shared a great bottle of wine (fabulous recommendation from our server, since neither of us are great with French wines) and because it was my friend's birthday we were comped to an AMAZING array of desserts!

The service was excellent, with the staff providing helpful information and suggestions regarding menu choices. The dining rooms are very nice with sufficient spacing of tables. The menu had a good variety, without being overwhelming. The children's menu also had healthy options - my 8-year old daughter highly recommends the chicken and frites. The quality of the food was excellent and portion size was just right. Cocktails were well done and the wine list offered some reasonably priced options. My only negative was I was in the mood for a good beer and 2 out 3 of my top choices from the list were unavailable. Would highly recommend.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent French bistro food,Excellent French bistro food, steaks, fish, wine. Great gluten-free menu. Outstanding service.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.
