While we always enjoy the food here - it the folks that keep us coming back! The staff at Mon Ami are super welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. We always know we'll have a nice time here.

Too many interruptions from service staff. Server was pushing booze during a work lunch, and making silly jokes that were disruptive and uncomfortable.

Food was okay. Kitchen mixed up one of the orders, and it delayed the entire order. Hence fries can to the table stone cold. Very disappointing.

I don’t know why I would go anywhere else for lunch with a friend, when the food at Mon Ami Gabi is so outstanding, as is the value. Their express lunch (no feeling of being rushed at all) offers 3 courses, with choices to please everyone. It’s my new favorite place to have lunch!

The mussels and crepe were the same as they've been on prior visits -- excellent. The crab cake benedict special was good, but just not on par with the rest of the meal (although the potatoes were very tasty). Our server was pleasant and very attentive. Although the restaurant was not packed, it seemed noisier than it has been on prior visits. Maybe where we were seated.

The food was very good as usual. Our table location was less than ideal, in a very busy location that felt wedged in and it got cold drafts from the door. Our waiter wasn’t very attentive and we had to ask several times for things - a forgotten side dish, coffee refill, iced tea. We waited a long time for dessert and my soup was lukewarm. It just wasn’t our usual pleasant experience. Some was the fault of the waiter, some of the kitchen and some maybe because it was a busy Saturday night.

Came out for anniversary. The staff asked us several times about the occasion. It seemed like they were fact checking or double check if it really was our anniversary. They did give us a free glass of wine which was nice. Meal was good.

I dine at the restaurant often. The kitchen staff does not pay attention to detail. While the stuff is warned about the food allergies the food has to be returned back to the kitchen every time. I did not love our waiter this time . Had better service in the past.

Always very good food, and polite service. The environment is both fun, tasteful and comfortable. The bar is separate so eating in the table area is not too loud. A restaurant we always want to go back to.

We've been to their location on the Vegas Strip. It's our favorite restaurant there. This was a first time at this location. Other than missing the Bellagio fountains, the service and quality of food did not disappoint. Our entrees, Seared Salmon and Beef Borguignon, were delicious. The salmon was perfectly prepared and the beurre blanc sauce was amazing. Creme Brulee and Banana Bread Pudding closed out our meals.

It was Friday night, so the restaurant was crowded, but we didn't notice any significant slowdown in the service.

Will definitely go back and can't wait for warmer weather so we can sit outside.

Way too noisy and servers are rushing customers so they can sit more people right away. Not the type of ambience you expect of a French restaurant.

I patronize Mon Ami Gabi 2 to 3 times a year.... have always enjoyed the meals and the service . This time brunch was a little bit off. It didn’t help that the table next to us was a group of seven or eight very loud people but that is not the restaurants fault… They were so loud we actually had trouble hearing each other at our table. I normally get the steak Benedict which has been very good but this time the steak had an odd taste to it and I didn’t eat it. And the food was barely warm when we got it. I had a gift card so I didn’t make a big deal out of it but this was not up to par for this restaurant.
