Good as always- Steve our waiter was very good as always
Sat 5:30pm reservations, friendly front staff seated immediately. Wife’s favorite place to eat. Great food & service. Our waiter James was most attentive. Enjoyed Restaurant week special. Wonderful dining experience
Our group went to enjoy the restaurant week offers and had a wonderful time. The restaurant week menu was a great deal and allowed us to try multiple different appetizers and entrees without an extraordinary bill. The service was truly impeccable! Our server stopped by multiple times to check in on us, check to see if we needed drinks, and see how the food was. Truly a great experience.
The service and food was excellent!
I asked to be seated away from any wait stations, where did you seat us? Next to a wait station! I asked to be moved to one of many open tables in the middle of the room, that seated four people. You told me those OPEN tables were reserved. For who? I was there first and made a reservation.
So where do you sit us? In a dark corner, around the back side Rolf the bar where waiters were running back a forth, bumping into my chair at each pass. Was almost impossible to see the menu and felt like we were ushered off to the side where we were left with no view of the room.
I made this reservation to celebrate my birthday with my wife and friends. I wanted this to be a nice evening for us but instead I felt like I had to bargain for a nice table, there were plenty free at 5:00 PM and was left feeling like we were not valued as customers.
This was our 4th time at this location and this time I felt like there was not much effort on your part, to make this experience as pleasant as possible. The food was ok and our waiter was excellent. The front of the house staff could use a lesson on making your guests feel welcome and valued. Them seemed unhappy and uninterested.
My favorite restaurant - very happy with it as usual
Went for restaurant week brunch. Food was really good and ambiance at the restaurant was wonderful!
Great food and terrific service.
We haven’t been to Mon Ami Gabi in years, don’t know why! We’re always in the area. We were excited about having dinner at Mon Ami Gabi, especially since it was our daughter’s first time there. Our server wasn’t very friendly & we got the impression he wasn’t very happy with us preferring to order from the Restarant Week menu. I don’t think all three of us are wrong! Besides that, we enjoyed ourselves & our dinners. We’re planning on returning but hopefully we won’t get the same servicer!
I was there for the start of restaurant week and was not disappointed. Great food and service!
Wonderful Friday evening for birthday celebration. Wait staff excellent. Cocktails delicious. Dover sold outstanding. Lovely experience. Highly recommended. Have been here several times never disappointed.
Incredible service and outstanding food.
Great food and service. Will definitely go back.
Our party of 3 enjoyed the Prix Fixe menu enormously. Our waiter was very attentive. Only negatives was, what was that leafy green in the salmon? (not spinach), and the waiter kept asking for a drink order when he was told that we had to return to work after lunch.
It’s one of our favorites and enjoyed a birthday celebration there! Service & food always wonderful !
My guest and I enjoyed our meal very much. They kept our coffee filled and our water glass filled with us having to ask for more.
A great consistent spot for dining.
Great food and service! We will definitely return.
Went early for happy hour before our dinner rez. Bartender was great with suggestions for drinks and appetizers which were 1/2 off. Salmon, escargot and baked brie. All great. Evening special was dover sole the bartender held 3 for our table. Dinners were great steak frites for some done perfectly. Soles were perfect and so was everything else
As usual, food and service was outstanding
Tom was an excellent server. We had a wonderful evening. The specials were delicious tonight
The filet with Béarnaise sauce was excellent, as was the salmon with baby spinach salad. But the best part of the dining experience was the superb service of Asa. He was very efficient and friendly all at the same time. He took exceptional care of me because I have a garlic allergy. He also laughed at my corny jokes! I had mentioned how good he was to the man who had seated us, and he said that Asa was a relatively new employee. I hope the management there know just how lucky they are to have such a gem taking care of their guests.
We were in Paris and the north of France for two weeks in September and we never had a lunch as good as the one two of us couples had together this week. First, the ambiance is very nice, not overly French in decor but enough to give it enough French flair. There is a good sized dining room to the right of the entrance, a nice bar and some smaller cafe tables for eating and drinking in the bar area, then behind the bar there are some other tables and a private banquet room. Very nice facility.
You get a good selection of French lunch fare, from sandwiches to salads to crepes and fish and steaks, a la carte; or for $19.55 a couple of us got the three-course Prix Fixe lunch which was an excellent value. There is French baguette bread in a bag on the table with butter to get you started. My first course was a tureen of the best French onion soup I ever had, great flavor, hot, onions and cheese .. delicious! My second course was grilled salmon on spinach and it was outstanding. While on the smaller side, after the bread and soup and with dessert still to come it was plenty, and very delicious. There were 3 dessert choices on the fixed price menu: chocolate mousse, pineapple sorbet, and a profiterole which I had and it was a great finish to the meal. The others had various lunches including fish sandwich and the classic French sandwich croque monsieur.
Good variety of wine choices mostly in the $8 - $12, I started with a red Cotes du Rhone (to take the chill off the 20 degree winter weather outside) and a white Pouilly Fuisse before coffee to end the meal. My wife and I with two wines each had a bill of $97 plus tip.
The only thing missing is that the staff we've always met in our 5 - 6 visits there, very competent and service-oriented, have always been American. I wouldn't mind having an Antoine or a Francoise with a nice French accent taking care of us. Anyway, we had a delicious and delightful meal, and look forward to our next return visit.
Wednesday's special is beef short ribs. This was the first time I had it. It was absolutely wonderful. I want to go back every Wednesday and order this. It comes in an Urn that has Puff pastry on top. The presentation was great and the taste was 1000 times greater. By far one of my favorites at Mon Ami Gabi. The Trout is also great. I almost ordered that. But after seeing the Beef Short rib presentation. I switched. They have a limited amount available. Make sure you get your order in.
Normally we have a great experience here but last night was off. A very inattentive waiter (who did apologize for being inattentive), my two dining companions would have liked a second glass of wine but as he never came to check on us, they did not have the opportunity to order. Also, an overzealous busboy drove us crazy - he kept asking to take away our plates when there was still food on them and we were still eating. Made us feel very rushed. I wish all restaurants would stop clearing plates until everybody at the table was finished!
We enjoyed everything! Our waiter and food selections and food was OUTSTANDING. Valet parking was terrific. We recommend Moni AmI Gabi to everyone looking for a fabulous dining experience. Thank you!
Exceptional customer care!
Two week ago, we had a disappointing experience at this restaurant. On our visit this week, the manager and the entire team went above and beyond to make sure our visit was great this time. And they did it. From the great food to the attentive service.
This restaurant knows how to care and provide a wonderful experience.
Delicious as Always!
One of my favorite restaurants.
Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Service was sloooooow. Kitchen was very slow to turn out the food. The whole meal took far too long.
Mon Ami is always reliable and we always eat too much. Our waiter was excellent The food was good. The bread crust was a little soft...not as crispy as usual or as we like it. We will be back frequently.
Good was excellent!
My table was crowded by guests behind me to the point I had to move my seat over to allow for the guest behind me to spread out. That table was quite loud and made for difficulty hearing my table mates.
Everything was excellent. The service, the food, the atmosphere -all were wonderful. We will be back!
It was a great experience. Great room, service was overall good - though a little slow getting our initial drink order. Food was absolutely fantastic; I had a sea bass that was cooked perfectly, and my son had a perfectly cooked butt steak. Just fabulous food experience. Disappointed that I hadn't been there in so long, as each experience has been great.
We love this place and the food is always comforting. A great feel of a French bistro... but this time our waiter was rude. She served a corked bottle of wine and told us that we did not know what we are talking about. Very rude as we have a lot of knowledge about wine and this one was terribly wrong.
Been coming here for years, this time I wasn't wowed. I had the duck, I won't again. Everything else was fine.
