Service was poor. Food quality/presentation needs improvement. Ad was misleading.
I saw an ad for Mon Ami's Black Friday brunch. This restaurant's "brunch" was a handful of breakfast items on the menu. The advertised Bloody Mary bar was never offered. Low points: an hour until our "brunch" entrees arrived; the Nutella waffle came with a teeny dollop of Nutella; the bananas foster waffle came with a tiny glass dish of bananas and sauce (maybe 1/4 cup total); the crepes were thick not the delicate dish I am used to in French restaurants. The scallops in the seafood crepe went uneaten. The french onion soup was weak.
I thought the tab was pricey. We ordered waffles, crepes, and soups with no drinks.

Attended a rehearsal dinner for the bride and groom. Service and food were excellent. The room we had was private and cozy.

My wife and I were attempting to go to Cheese Cake Factory last Friday when we found that the wait was almost 2 hours. We decided to go across the parking lot to Mon Ami Gabi. We did not have reservations so we had to settle for open seating in the bar area. This was a fine choice since the wait was less than 5 minutes. I will have to say I was a bit skeptical since I have never seen a review for this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent in every way. The only issue we had was service and that was due to our server being over worked.

Mon Ami's wine selection is excellent. Try the Sancere which is served at just the right temperature. Their skate and Fish and Frites is outstanding. A great overall experience!

Have dined here a number of times over the last few years, but have never gotten around to submitting a review. Reservation was honored right on time; had very good service from our server. Large selection of wines by the glass, and reasonably priced. Cocktails were excellent, perhaps a touch pricey. Excellent warm baguette served; warm goat cheese appetizer was huge, enjoyed by all four of us. One of our group had the scallops - excellent preparation, but unfortunately one scallop was very sandy; three had various preparations of the steak frites. The frites were the only real disappointment of the meal - they are not classic frites as one would see them in France or Belgium - it's a bit difficult to describe them - they are fairly tasty but difficult to eat with a fork. The mashed potatoes were substituted at one person's request and were pronounced very good. Desserts were superb - two of us ordered chocolate souffles, another the pineapple bread pudding, and another the profiteroles. There was a mixup in the kitchen causing a significant delay in delivery of the souffles - the manager literally bent over backwards in apologizing for the error and also went above the call of duty and comp'd all the desserts at the table. The price of the meal was reasonable even before the adjustment for the kitchen mixup. Highly recommended.
