Mom Ami is the perfect place for meeting friends who are visiting from out of town. We had cocktails and by-passed the appetizers. Went right to the entrees. One friend was delighted to be able to order her favorite hangar steak, which, by the way, she ate in its entirety. The other friend opted for steak frites with Borderlaise sauce. I had it with Bernaise sauce. My husband chose the trio of filets. Seems everyone but me finished their plates. We also had mushrooms and sautéed spinach to share. Again, we declined dessert, but certainly did not feel cheated since we relished all that we had.

Have loved Mon Ami Gabi ever since it opened. While there are so many tasty items on the menu, I always default to Steak and Pommes Frites. We also, this time, had the Halibut special which was spectacular, and an appetizer of pate, which was equally good.
Our waitress was awesome, so friendly, and efficient - we had a great time talking with her.
It was noisier than usual, but it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was full. Didn't matter to us - we had a great time!

Always a delicious meal and consistent experience at Mon Ami Gabi! I do wish that the happy hour prices for drinks could be used in the dining room in addition to the bar area. Doesn't quite seem fair. Maybe they can reconsider this practice!

We had a wonderful dining experience. Our server was exceptional in his attention to us and his knowledge of the menu items. Mon Ami Gabi is an excellent dining experience but our server set the tone from the start by pacing himself as we got settled, reviewed the menu and had questions.

We love Mon Ami Gabi - it's absolutely our "go to" restaurant for any celebration. I was a bit disappointed this year for our Mother's Day visit. We had a 7:30pm reservation and they were out of several menu items. One was the hanger steak which it what I always order. I had the prime rib and while it was good, it wasn't what I wanted.

Our waiter was brilliant and so much fun. He made our experience better, even with the lack of menu items.

I love the food and ambiance but we had a 6:45 p.m. reservation and were not seated until 7:10. My elderly parents found this bothersome. This is the second time this has happened to us here.

Liked the smiling faces of every one even the valet at the front to the waiters, noise level is somewhat high but that’s a good thing as I can also be talking in my normal tone .

Food is good though I think the halal menu can be increased, I eat there often and have recommended it to my friends already

The food was ok but not impressive. It was more of a steak and seafood restaurant then French in my opinion. Not really any good wine by the glass options but dessert was very good. I was looking forward to a classic French meal so I left a bit disappointed.

Mon Ami Gabi was the perfect choice for a recent small group birthday celebration on a Thursday evening. The room we were seated in was comfortable and quiet away from the bar and large boisterous bistro room and therefore conversation friendly despite other diners at tables near by. The service was gracious, knowledgeable and perfectly timed. The waiter and the service assistant would have received instant verbal commendation had there been anyone working the front desk when we departed. Their professionalism and kindness simply took the meal to the next level. We shared the duck appetizer and then each had a perfectly prepared fish dish...which went beautifully with the wines we had chosen. A trio of profiteroles was the perfect end to a wonderful meal. We will be back.

Our entrees we’re stake frites. Perfectly cooked with delicious sauces. Desserts were profiteroles, Creme brûlée and tart tatin. Will definitely be returning. Out waitress, Tammy, was perfect.

The food and service are always consistently good but the prices keep escalating. Also, I think the frites have changed. They used to be crispier and now they were closer to French fry consistency.

Great server and very knowledgeable.
I believe his name was Keith.
Maybe a little noisy atmosphere, but the food was great.
The Pinot Gris was too pricy.
