Good food. Generous portions. Pricier than expected. Issue with smoke alarm and unnecessary 3% surcharge.

Group of five eating escargots, trout amandine and special of grouper provençale. So so delicious! Love Mon Ami Gabi for all occasions. Steak frites is also amazing as is the lamb shank when they have that on specials.

The food, ambiance and service are outstanding! The manager, Ulas, was so attentive to us and all of the diners and employees, and made sure we were all taken care of. Also one of the best happy hours I've been to. I can't wait to go back!

Of course, going on a winter Wednesday night, things are bound to be on the quiet side, compounded by COVID issues. But the restaurant was as great as I remember from previous visits, with a terrific menu and great food. Service was great and I look forward to another visit next month to celebrate a couple birthdays! The thing that always throws me off, and the main reason I do not go to RTC very often, is the confusing parking situation. Do you have to pay? Is it free? Load an app on my phone? What is that? So I stopped going to RTC for the most part as the parking situation is as confusing as it is frustrating (no reflection on the restaurant).

This annual event is awesome. New Years Day brunch is worth it. The menu has a great variety for whether you want breakfast or lunch items. Everything we had was delicious - i had quiche and my friend had eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. Shared a very nice bottle of French white wine.

Service provided by Billy and Elias was excellent. Great suggestions and very attentive.

And you get gift cards in the amount of your food and beverage!!! No better way to start the new year!

Despite being New Year's Day, the unlucky staff who were working in the morning to serve us brunch, did a wonderful job of making delicious food and being there when we needed them to be! The cream of mushroom soup was the best I've ever had. the steak sandwich was as good as I've come to expect there. My family enjoyed their meals as well and we walked away full and happy! And kudos to them for matching the cost of our food with gift cards we can use anytime just because I wore pjs. But so did others in tables around us - most of who had matching pjs. It was all very cute and we're looking forward to our next visits over the year and this tradition next New Years! THANK YOU, MON AMI GABI!!!

The food was good, however the waiter wasn't very attentive. We had our appetizers on the table before he asked about our main courses and never let us know about the specials.

We enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent. The mussels appetizer was good but there were about 6 mussels still closed. There wasn’t a piece of bread to sop up the broth nor a spoon.
The skate wing was delicious. The steak was on point but served with French fries not frites.

I was surprised at the food quality. The frites used to be shoestring French style but the ones served to us were over salted and tasted like fast food fries. Very disappointing for a steak snd frites dinner at over 30.00 for the meal.

Went with my husband, mom, and three friends. Super! We got to the area early, and it was cold, so the three of us got a table at happy hour and had a drink plus frites. I had a mini onion soup -- outstanding! At dinner, we had escargot and cheese plate as appetizers. Both super! Cheese plate had brie and Roquefort, plus toast rounds, marmalade and candied walnuts. My husband had trout almandine and raved about it. My mom had the vegetarian pasta. I had duck confit (my favorite there) and green beans. My friends had steak and frites. One friend said it was saltier than he had expected (the one with red wine and caramelized onions). We had desserts which were great. Service was phenomenal, as was atmosphere. Very nice evening!

I had the trout and it was extremely buttery. So much that the butter overwhelmed the fish and Butter is all I could taste.
Wine list is way way overpriced.

As always, our food was excellent. Typically the service is too, but our waiter was absent the entire time. Long periods of waiting for him to return. He never cleared our table, shared daily specials or anything. His service was disappointing. Further, my guest ordered a glass of wine. She didn't have her ID with her, but the waiter said no problem. 10 minutes passed and the manager came to our table to tell her he wouldn't serve her. It was embarrassing for all. We support no ID no drink, but not sure why the waiter elevated to the point where a manager came by. Beyond that, this was the only attention showed to our table. We ordered 4 courses and expected better service and more respect.

Terrible table in a corner . Waiters huddled by open wine selection loudly talking and laughing . Server very inattentive. Served a beer in a bottle that was broken glass . Food ok but the beef Wellington was supposed to be medium rare and was very rare , would have liked to send back but no server around .

I’ve been to Mon Ami Gabi a few times in the past, we go there because we love the food it’s always been amazing. But this time we felt that it wasn’t worth it. Could’ve been better as well as the service. The server greeted the table with a fake welcome and we saw very quickly but we didn’t let that ruin the night as we saw he had a few other tables. Towards the end the server’s attitude just added the cherry on top of the awful experience. Mon Ami Gabi might not be the first choice next time

Our waiter didn’t seem to be quite with it. We had to ask a second time for our bottle of wine and our food was served totally out of order. Not the usual service we are accustomed to.

First visit to this restaurant for everyone in our party. Everyone at our table chose from the steak frites menu. Steaks were pounded to a 1/4" but were cooked to order. There were enough fries (frites) on each plate for three people. The main course came before we were finished with our salads. One of the sides wasn't served until we were almost finished. The restaurant was packed and therefore very loud. We could barely hear each other.

If we go again, it won't be on a Friday or Saturday evening.
