“Steak au Poivre!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

My go-to place for steak when I get the craving. Excellent fries - and kids meals that are scarfed down quickly. Very nice interior - much like a French Bistro and very lively bar scene most nights. The Trout Almondine is also wonderful but the steak is best. They also have a great breakfast bar attached but its name escapes me.

“Delicious meal and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We ate at Mon Ami Gabi around 7:30pm on a Thursday. Our wait staff was very pleasant, efficient, and courteous. I had the caramelized sea scallops with pea puree, spring veggies, bacon and my husband had the steak classique. My scallops were quite good--tender--and the steak was cooked to my husband's specifications. We also had dessert--I went with the warm chocolate tart with salted caramel ice cream. It was quite good--not overly sweet at all. Husband had the bananas foster crepes, which were good but not quite as good as he was hoping it would be. Overall very happy with our experience.

“Great food and a fair price with excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Back again and this time I tried the Steak Classic, a real bargain I think for $21.95 and the fries are great!!!! Had a wonderful Frisee Salad before hand topped off with a nice Pinot Blanc and it was a delightful meal. The service was outstanding. If you care about noise request to be away from the bar noise, otherwise I highly recommend!

“consistently a good value for food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Note it is usually a good idea to call AHEAD TO FIND OUT THE SPECIALTY OF THE DAY , regardless the a la carte menu offers many options if it is a nice day ask about out door seating availability
