They ran out of food for nearly all items on the menu. It was quite unfortunate and ruined the night.

They were out of several staples like baguettes, chicken and French onion soup. This was extremely disappointing. The food was good but not great.

We had a fantastic dinner and cannot give enough praise to Mon Ami Gabi and Lettuce Entertain You for the fantastic job they did. We both commented how challenging the constant flux must be right now but the restaurant did great with the food and our waiter was fantastic. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough for a special night out.

It was great. No problems waiter was great. Got exactly what we wanted and I loved the feel. It didn’t have the negative connotations associated with the pandemic. It was there but it felt natural almost as close to normal as possible.

Unfriendly waiter regarding mask requirements. We went to numerous other restaurants over the weekend who approached the same mask issues in friendlier manner. The funny thing is after being told to mask up we saw rolled flatware fall to the floor, refilled and placed with the clean ones??

We have been fans since before it was Mon Ami Gabi (it was Un Gran Cafe)!
It had been a while since we dined there. And we picked a snowy Monday evening to celebrate our son's birthday.

It was excellent! Great service, excellent food (mussels, trout, salmon, steak frites), and Covid protocol to keep us safe.

We will be back soon!

The food was excellent. The onion soup, escargot, steak and profiteroles – all of which we’ve had many times elsewhere — were as good as we’ve ever had. The service was very good – pleasant and unintrusive. Covid-19 protocols seemed excellent.

They have construction going on in a part of the restaurant. Food was ok but nothing special. I had higher expectations and would like to come back over summer and try it one more time. This time it was disappointing.
