I used to love this place but they changed the way they do steak frites. Now it's a flat dray piece of meat. To serve it medium rare as I asked for would be impossible. The presentation of our meal highlighted the problem. The only thing on the plate was the meat. Very iHop. Mon Ami still very popular, so obviously others are not as fixated on that as I, though steak is 1/3 of the menu. I like the chicken live mousse appetizer. Still great with their delicious bread.

Good food. Service was also good but lacked something. Our server was attentive but seemed to have an attitude. We felt rushed.

Love the atmosphere.

Mon Ami always is a hit, whether it be for lunch, dinner or brunch. A friend and I were able to have a glass of wine and lunch outside, a very rare warm February day!

Great food and great service. On a busy Sunday, holiday weekend, dinner day, with son in tow, we were lucky to have a reservation. While the hostess was on the phone, a manager stepped in quickly to greet and seat us. I assumed the staff in business casual gear, not in uniforms, were managers. Dinner service was a little slow for some but we enjoyed the pace. And as busy as it was, We weren’t rushed and we received great service. Our first steak was over cooked but was quickly replaced. Everyone there was working hard to make our dining experience and enjoyable one. To me, this is how a restaurant should operate. Food was amazing too. Looking forward to going again.

Holiday weekend busy for a Sunday night. Our food took forever, and the two steaks were cold as was the sauce. Our daughters trout was perfect. Clearly the steaks had to wait on the fish. I was very disappointed. It has been a while since we were there and I was excited as it used to be our favorite. My husband won't go back anytime soon. I used to go for an early lunch on the weekend so perhaps it's better when they are not busy.

Our waiter got our order completely wrong which was frustrating. Once we explained the food delivered to the table was not what we asked for, it was approximately 10 minutes until the correct meals arrived. The food was delicious.

Food and service was good but who decided to seat a family with small kids next to the table reserved for people celebrating their anniversary? Lack of attention to detail. When I complained about it no-one cared or did anything. I didn't enjoy my anniversary dinner sitting next to shrieking kids.

We were a party of 4 and we all had a lovely time. All the staff members including host and waitress, and all servers were very nice and did a great job. The drinks were perfect and the food was delicious. We had a good time and definitely plan to go back soon.

Unfortunately, we were there to celebrate and we were disappointed with the evening. We special ordered appetizers - no love was put into it. We ordered steaks and they were over cooked. All and all, we feel as if the food and service has become inconsistent.
