It had been a couple years since I'd been there, but I had remembered it being very good. It still is. Was pleasantly surprised by the reasonableness of the prices, and service was excellent as well. Thought the desserts could be a little more exciting, but a small nitpick on an otherwise great meal.

This is one of the best restaurants in the area and has great service and terrific food. My mom's salmon and pomme puree could not have been better. The grilled shrimp and my salad were delicious. Fresh hot bread is a great start and the creme brulee is outstanding. Our server was courteous and on top of things from start to finish, even sensing that I wanted an extra cup of coffee.

6:30pm reservations arrived early, most accommodating, friendly front staff. Restaurant was busy. One of our fav go to places. With that said, tonight’s experience was not up to par. Our soup and appetizers came out together. Felt rushed. The entree’s, trout almondine was overcooked and beef bourguignon was soup. Reached out to Mgr, apologized invited us back.

My wife’s birthday, and we were seated promptly, even though they were very busy. Service was friendly and competent, and food was great. The whole experience was very satisfying. The bonus profiterole served as desert was thoughtful and will assure our return. Thanks for a great evening.

Food was excellent, but service was extremely slow - everyone pitched in to help, but we had long waits for food, dessert, and then the check.

Service was not as attentive as it used to be. Perhaps our server was over-committed. We miss the seafood crepes....

It seems that the busy time meant a longer wait time. WE often visit Mon Ami but this time it was less than optimal - overall.

My experience at Mon Ami is always good. On this night I was disappointed in my arrival. It was raining and the valet told me I was on my own to park the car. My server informed the manager of the situation and he did apologize. He would look into it.

I enjoyed my meal at Mon Ami Gabi, although it just did not seem quite as superb as my past visits dining at the restaurant. I'm not quite sure why. It may have just been my mood that night. Nonetheless, it is a good all-around dining choice. I will definitely go back to it in the future.

Overall a good experience. However, I ordered a small Caesar Salad as an appetizer and it was covered with Chile oil. It was so hot It ruined the rest of my meal as that is all I could taste. Nowhere on the menu did it say “hot” Caesar Salad. I have a very sensitive stomach and the spiciness of the salad caused digestive issues for the entire following day. I was disappointed that there is no warning on the menu about the high level of spice.

We enjoyed a wonderful 40th anniversary dinner with attentive and personalized service in a comfortable and upscale setting. Cocktails, wine and food were excellent - the NY strip steak and steak & frites were perfectly done. From baguette to dessert profiteroles, we greatly enjoyed the experience!

Mon Ami Gabi never disappoints. Food consistent, wait staff inconsistent. I requested a gluten-free menu which was provided quickly. Usually receive a slice of kind of ok gluten free bread and olives. They could do better with the gluten free bread. I asked to have the butter served on the side for the trout dish and the server said, sure, no problem. I also know not to ask the kitchen for special requests, knowing how busy they can be. Anyway, my gluten free bread and olives never arrived, and you guessed it, the trout was l literally swimming in butter. So not being one of those patrons, I ate the trout anyway, which was very good but honestly way too much butter. Waiter never came by the check on us. When he did come by to ask about dessert I quietly told him about not receiving the bread. His answer was "it's probably sitting in the kitchen somewhere!" And the butter on the side, no answer. To his credit he did comp us each our glass of house wine. I reminded him that it's the little details that keep customers coming back. He agreed. So maybe his next table will have more consistent service

Was not a fan
Best part of meal was baguette on the table... The escargot was chewy and overpowered by the garlic butter. The chicken in the chop salad was dry, the lettuce starting to brown (though perhaps that was just dressing seeping into the dry stalks) only had 5 tiny peices of avacado (dime size). My guest only ate 2 bites of his soup. Said he was expecting some spice ( from a jalapeno corn chowder) but was "underwhelming"

Waiter/service was good

Overall bad experience

went to a "lady's lunch. Everything was perfect. Wine suggested by server was excellent, did not rush. Checked on us at just the right times. It was a very pleasant lunch with lady friends.
