Mon Ami Gabi Review

This French bistro and steak house that first earned acclaim in Chicago has become much beloved here in Vegas. It's the rare restaurant with sidewalk dining on the Strip. For those who prefer a lower traffic environment, a glassed-in conservatory just off the street conveys an outdoor feel, and still-quieter dining rooms are inside, adorned with chandeliers dramatically suspended three stories above. The specialty of the house is steak frites, offered ten ways, including classic, au poivre, bordelaise, and Roquefort. The skate with garlic fries and caper-lemon butter is also excellent, and the prices are, on the whole, quite reasonable for first-rate French fare on the Strip. This place is a favorite for Sunday brunch.

    Mon Ami Gabi Review

    Mon Ami is one of the few restaurants on the strip that Vegas locals admit going to. As such, it does a brisk business, especially at peak dining times. There are three distinct areas of seating, an outdoor patio that emulates the sidewalk cafes of France, a glass covered indoor section with equally great views but also air conditioning on those over 100 degree days, and a rather dark windowless section as you first enter. The staff doing the seating rarely ask your preference and tend to assume most people want the outdoor area so here's a tip if you want to shorten your wait and don't care. Telling them you want to sit indoors, especially the back darker section can often get you in quicker. And here's another tip, the windowless area also offers more intimate dining than the bustle at the front of the place.

    But seating alone doesn't drive all the popularity at this restaurant. It actually does French style comfort cusine quite well and with some very nice touches. One is the fresh baguette that is served in its own paper bag to each table. Burgers and steak frites seem to lead as popular choices although the Trout Grenobloise may challenge them. Most selections are at surprisingly reasonable prices too. That may speak to why Mon Ami has recently added breakfast hours while other Vegas establishments have scaled back.

    And with prices in mind, here's another tip. Mon Ami is a great place to save on dinner. Most of the selections offered for lunch are also on the dinner menu at the same price. So you can enjoy a nice evening at luncheon prices.

    Dining with a View

    I had a great night out with my dad here. My food was great, and I enjoyed the Parisian bistro atmosphere inside along with the lovely view of the Bellagio Fountains outside. However, my dad's seared scallops just didn't work out for him. So consider yourself warned & stick to the steakhouse faves at this steakhouse.

    great view

    The first table wasn't to our liking and they readily changed it. OK food. Nothing spectacular...but worth the lingering if you can snare a table and watch the Bellagio fountain

    Excellent Birthday Dinner!

    Food and Service were outstanding! Highly recommend the Crock of Onion soup. Special of Prime Rib was fork tender! Only drawback to the atmosphere was an especially loud group of diners near our table. All in all I highly recommend, and will return.

    great food

    We ate lunch there. The food is very good.
    I've had seafood crepes and my husband had chicken crepes. I tasted both and they very wonderful.
    The desert I was not so crasy about.
