This is a good happy hour spot if you are looking for one. We generally end up here once a month. The happy hour deals are pretty good. I like the french onion soup. Sometimes it is hard to get a table.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised. He had escargot and I had the Kale and hot bacon salad. We sat at the bar. Very good food and service. Bread was great

My wife and I went here on a date night after I resisted it for many years. I'm not generally a fan of French food. I'm really glad she talked me into it. The service was exceptional for the price point and the food was...More

Go to Mon Ami Gabi occasionally, usually for happy hour. Excellent menu at a very reasonable price. Drinks are good. Service is attentive without being a pain. Dinner is good as well!

I wrote a review on this site more than a year or two back - and had not been here since. Came in last night with my daughter for her birthday dinner and everything was superb! Escargot still reigns supreme here paired with their Bordeaux...More
