Looked forward to a fresh baguette and excellent food, was not disappointed. Tables are a little tight but at the same time we had a 7:30 pm open table reservation on a Friday night, arrived at 7:20 pm and were seated immediately. The prime steak and frites were wonderful and a good value.

After dining at Mon Ami Gabi for several years we were both disappointed in the food. We each had unacceptable steak/frites. The steaks were extremely thin and poorly cooked. The pate had little taste and the bread was not up to their previous standard. The waiter was quite good. Living 25 miles away with much traffic I don’t think we will be making that journey in the near future.

Three friends, who I haven't seen in a year, and I met for lunch. I was at the restaurant a few weeks ago with another friend so I recommended we meet there. Lunch was absolutely fabulous. Delicious food, great service and reasonable prices. Each of us was very happy with the restaurant and agreed that the next time we get together, it would be at Mon Ami Gabi.

For the prices the food should be very much better. It was bland, lukewarm...and the host/manager was so shabb looking on creased khakis and a plaid shirt, when the waiters are classic black and white. Disappointing.

Mon ami Gabi remains our favorite restaurant. We eat out frequently, but Mon ami is our go to place for special occassions. This trip we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The service is great and the ambiance is classic French. The steak and frites is a stand out dish that is available with a number of different preparation styles. The warm goat cheese appetizer is a must. The profiteroles for desert are to die for. Thanks Mon ami for making our anniversary special.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Mon Ami Gabi and really loved it. This was our first time dining there and we will definitely be back. Everything was wonderful and they really made our anniversary so special. Our server, Jessica was phenomenal! She was so helpful with recommendations and really created such a welcoming experience. My husband and I mentioned multiple times throughout the meal how kind and thoughtful she was.

The service was prompt and attentionate.

The soup of the day was very good (Gaspacho). Unfortunately, the main course were not as good.

I had the salmon served with mached peas and a beurre blanc. The peas were very good and felt very fresh the salmon and the Beurre blanc was a little watery and was lacking tasting. We also had the steak au Proivre and the steak was good as we’ll a show the s’amuse but the fries were over cooked.

The wine recommendation was very good but and the bread was served warm but not crisp out of the oven but felt more that it was heated up in the microwave.

At the end of the dinner, our anniversary was acknowledged by two lovely profiterole which was a lovey gesture and very much appreciated.

Overall service was great, genuine and personalized. As far as the food, I am confident that it was a one off experience as I have been there before and it was right on! But the gaspacho was exquisite!

We always go to Mon Ami Gabi for our anniversary, and this year was our 13th. As always, Mon Ami Gabi did not disappoint. Our server brought us each a complimentary glass of champagne to start the evening. For an appetizer, I decided to branch out and try the escargot (something I haven't had since a trip to France with a friend 15 years ago). They were delicious, especially the herbed garlic butter sauce they were floating in. My husband and I both had the house salad and the filet mignon au poivre, which were very solid. The server was good about making sure his steak did not come with the creme fraiche, since he has a dairy allergy. Desserts were complimentary as well! My husband enjoyed his sorbet, and the profiterole was chocolatey and delicious. Another lovely anniversary meal! :)

I could just order the chicken pate and be a happy camper. The best anywhere. I have even gone so far as to ask for the recipe but unfortunately no luck. They also got their MON AMI GABI fish back on the menu. WooHoo, was waiting for it to return. Our go to restaurant in the burbs. Always happy there!

I was disappointed in the onion soup; it wasn't as good as I've at other places. Also, the lack of an option for a small sandwich or something to go with the soup. I ordered a small salad with the soup, but it was definitely not worth an additional $9. Also, for a suburban location, I thought it was rather expensive. I live downtown, and maybe I'm wrong, but I thought the prices would be a little lower. A glass of wine, soup, and small salad cost over $30 plus tax and tip. I can go to Gibson's downtown for lunch and spend between $15-$20 and get a better experience.

The heat was almost enough to drive us out. The restaurant was having air conditioner issues on this very hot day. Some patrons didn't stay, but we choose to stick it out because we like the food and service. Strange that the manager didn't come around to apologize for the discomfort.
