We were celebrating our 52th Wedding Anniversary with another couple. The food was outstanding . We did not receive the usual desert for the celebration. The server did not acknowledge about celebration.

Food was very good and our server was excellent. I would like to give it 5 stars but our server had no one to assist him and had many tables. He had to bring bread, to serve, clean away dishes etc etc. it seems to me that the restaurant is understaffed. We had to wait for everything since there weren’t enough staff. Otherwise an outstanding evening.

We arrived on time and were told the party at our table still had dessert coming. We were offered a table in the bar, which was noisy, or outside, where it had been raining a short time before.
We agreed to the outside table. A few minutes later an inside table became available and needed only a few minutes to be cleaned. We took this option. So the first 15 minutes waiting was a bit confusing.

Food and service were wonderful.

Was very good, calm, and service was amazing. The waiter was outgoing and clear. The food was phenomenal, and very well priced for what we had (escargot for starters, then we both had filet mignons, and shared crème brûlée after).

Best service. We had our three year old granddaughter with. She was treated like a young lady. The bus boys got her more water and catsup when she asked. They were polite to her.
Food wonderful as usual!!

It was our first time dining at Mon Ami Gabi and it was just fabulous all around! From the hostess greeting and seating us, to our server, Keith, who was excellent and most attentive and then the food was just superb! We will definitely be back!

We went for my MIL’s birthday, with a larger group. Service was prompt, but not obtrusive. Kids meals came out in a cute, cafeteria style plate that kept each item separate which my kids always appreciate. Overall it was a very pleasant meal and experience. It’s been ages since we’ve been, but I am now thinking about adding it back into the rotation.

All food was excellent as was ambiance. Asked server Eileen for extra bernaise sauce for my left-overs and she said no problem. When I got home, no extra bernaise sauce. This is the second time this happened at thus location. Didn't think I needed to, but from now on will check the bag to make sure I got what I asked for. LOVED the gluten free menu and bread!

Had a great meal with my wife after not having been out in quite some time. Great ambiance and food was on point as usual. Love that they have a separate halal menu.

From the start to the finish, our server Steve made the dinner a wonderful experience. We will always request him and hope that we can fit in his schedule as a server. He made our little celebration something special. Thank you Steve for raising the bar for our special night!

We had a fine early dinner with friends, and had a difficult time deciding what each of us would order. Our server was quite helpful in describing the particulars of each dish and the portion sizes.

Mussels were overcooked to tiny rubber nuggets, some had their shells closed. The saving grace was the cooking broth, rich and tasty soaked up with the warm baguette .

We usually eat at least twice a month at Mon Ami Gabi. We enjoy the Salmon salad quiche benedicts and different soup offered. Our waitress was wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable. Our only complaint would be both this summer and last, besides the onion soup the only other option seems to be the tomato gazpacho. We miss the variety that used to be offered. The cold beet soup was outstanding as well as most other options. Please go back to alternating with other options.
