It was a good expiriense, just a bit overpriced after all.
We were treated by our brother to this fabulous restaurant since it was our 29th wedding anniversary. We were seated right away by the patio. What a lovely place, with great service and food. I would recommend eating here to anyone willing to try it.

Favorite Dish: We were served onion & cheese baked soup, baked macaroni with chicken, and fresh baked bread loaves. Then we shared ice cream with chocolate topping. Excellent!
I had heard raving reviews about the steak here at this restaurant. We stopped for lunch one fall afternoon and sat on the patio. The location and ambiance is top notch! You can sit out on the patio and see the water dance at the Bellagio. I am not a big steak eater, but was willing to try it for my sister, who really wanted to go. The steak was in a delicious red wine sauce, but was tough and full of gristle.
Favorite Dish: no favorite...
It can be a challenge to find a place with quiet, cozy charm while in Vegas but this place has it. My husband I became hooked on this spot about 3 years ago and we make it a point to have at least one meal here each time we are in town. Reservations are a must for weekend dinner. You can choose to sit on the outdoor patio in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower and across the street from the dancing fountains of Bellagio.
Favorite Dish: A fabulous appetizer is the garlic toast with baked tomato and cheese. I've had the quiche twice now, The bloody mary bar is probably my husband's favorite, I prefer the champagne cart!
We ate at Mon Ami Gabi for our anniversary dinner. And let me tell you, I am SO glad we did! Our meals were beyond great! I had a wonderful Lemon Chicken Breasts with fresh green beans and almonds and the husband had the Steak Classique with Frites. Both meals were cooked very quickly and tasted like they cooked all day! We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the Fountains show at the Bellagio. Our server gave us great service. He was a little snobby, but hey, its all about the atmosphere right!? Our bill was LESS that $50 and we thought it was worth twice that amount! We HIGHLY suggest Mon Ami Gabi to anyone!
Favorite Dish: The Lemon Chicken Breasts with fresh green beans and almonds.
What could be more romantic than having dinner directly under the Eiffel Tower while watching a choreographed fountain display on the neighbouring Italian Lake? Eh? Okay, I’m not in Paris. I am, of course, in Vegas!
Mon Ami Gabi is a bistro style restaurant in the Paris Las Vegas Hotel with views – and a terrace – overlooking the Strip and the Bellagio fountains across from it. Although quite a large restaurant it manages to retain an intimate feel, helped by subdued lighting and that most romantic of radiance, candlelight. The inner room is furnished in dark wood and has the feel of an exclusive members only club, the conservatory is airy and light with large windows overlooking the terrace and the Strip – we were lucky enough to get a table by one of the windows and had a great view – the terrace itself looked like a great place for people watching and, on a warm evening, a wonderful spot for watching dusk fall and Vegas light up.
Service was excellent, understated yet pleasant and efficient but without making you feel that you were being rushed. Most importantly the food – French influenced steak and seafood - was delicious.
Favorite Dish: We had
Shrimp Gabi – thick meaty prawns in an oil and garlic sauce
Sea Scallop Gartinee – scallops in a mouth-watering cream, garlic and mushroom sauce
Steak Roquefort and Frites - excellent
Parmesan Crusted Fish and Frites – like very posh fish and chips, fabulous. The frites were so thinly sliced they were like delicate and tasty crisps
Banana Crepe with Ice-Cream and Syrup – Yum!
Crème Brulee – Yum, Yum!
Bottle of white wine, 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of dessert wine
Total cost for two with tip – 180 dollars
Quite expensive but worth every penny!
I love this place .... I can eat alone on the patio and still receive great service :) I watch other folks walking the LV strip, and if my timing is right, I can enjoy the Bellagio water show across the street .. all while eating crispy crusted bread, wonderful escargot, and well, everything!!!!
Addendum: April 2006
My views of this restaurant have changed radically after my latest visit. The service was horrid! We had to ask multiple times for water, coffees, bread, etcetera. Though our waiter was nice, our table was so far off the beaten track neither he nor the busboys remembered we, or the neighboring tables, were even there! Add to this bad experience the discovery of a parasite in one of our table-mates fish dinner! Of course, the staff and manager removed this entree from our bill. But with everything else I experienced this visit - I won't be coming back. I don't mind splurging on GOOD food and service ... but a $200 bill for 5 adults after this experience left a terrible taste in my mouth.
Favorite Dish: I love their escargot .... their crepes .... soups .... and especially their bread! I can go there and have a cheaper meal of soup, bread, etc .... or a bigger meal of a crepe.
Their entree servings are huge, and big enough to share ......
BUT DON'T GET THE FISH!
What we loved about Mon Ami Gabi when we had lunch there was their opaque-roofed dining room. Between the indoor tables and the outdoor tables, there was a lovely, light-filled but cool section that was perfect on a hot Las Vegas day.
Favorite Dish: I had a butter lettuce salad with gruyere and walnuts -- it was exactly what I needed after an all-morning airplane flight and a walk in the Nevada heat. Each table also gets a yummy, crusty loaf of French bread.
One of my favorite moments in Las Vegas came the evening we ate dinner in the Paris Hotel/Casino at the Mon Ami Gabi French Restaurant. It was a lovely evening with high temperatures for the Month of January in Vegas; our waitress was topnotch; the food was excellent [for the most part]; and the light/water show across the street [See Photo #5] at the Bellagio was extraordinary. We sat out on the large patio [See Photo#3] with a perfect view of that show which exists about every half an hour.
Even though it was quite crowded, we were seated within ten minutes, and our waitress was quite efficient and oh, so friendly. Yes, the prices were high as most food prices are in Vegas, but the quality of what was served was worthy of the price.
Favorite Dish: On this memorable evening at Mon Ami Gabi, we were seated outdoors on the very large patio overlooking the strip with the beautiful Bellagio Hotel across from us. Of course, the Water/Light/Music show entertained us every 30 minutes. Our terrific waitress served the hot bread and butter first. Both Mickey and I felt this bread was just remarkable with its crusty outside layer and its warm, soft middle. None of it went to waste.
Because of our small appetites, we decided to share our meal. We agreed that we were in the mood for meat; thus, we selected the Filet of beef, French Style with delicious Blue Cheese for its topping. We were quite surprised when it arrived because it was so thin, and we are used to a thick portion in the Chicago area. However, we were not disappointed. It was as long as the plate and ever so flat. Remarkably tender, it melted in your mouth. The Blue Cheese was so fine that we made verbal sounds as we relished the experience! Along the steak, they had placed crispy French fries [See Photo #1]. Now those of you who have read my restaurant reviews are aware that I do not eat potatoes. Nevertheless, I tried these and loved them. We also thought that it would be wise [since we were at a French restaurant] to order French Onion Soup.[ See Photo #2] Now that decision was somewhat disappointing because the soup was too sweet for our tastes. However, the cheese topping for it was excellent cheese.
To end the evening, we ordered coffee drinks; I enjoyed a wonderful Cappuccino, and Mickey was surprised by the small size of her coffee drink. [See photo #4] All in all, it was a delightful dinner.
Well to start, just because it is French inspired does not mean it does not have casual food or food for any taste. My wife is very picky and we found some food she loves. With that said the food is EXCELLENT, we have not had a bad meal there. We love to stop there late and night and have some appetisers or sides with a drink. If you can get on the rail outside in front you have a nice view of the Bellagio Fountains, great people watching and see some nice cars at night. We have been here 3 times now. The first was Halloween, that was a blast. We always try to sit and the railing. The food is priced to meet the ambience and the view. We don't mind paying a little more for that, but it is not over priced to say the least. The drinks are little pricey, so we stick with Beer and we are not wine drinkers, but they have a very impressive selection. This is a great place to visit at least once, especially at night if you can sit out side.
Favorite Dish: There are two dishes we love, the Garlic Fries and the Macaroni and Cheese. Both are unique and both are very very tasty with a tasty price too...
This place is actually a French bistro but their lunch menu is heavily tilted to contemporary American so I'm going to select 'modern American' as the category for this restaurant.
Very good. This restaurant is famous for its blue cheese burger, and it surely did not disappoint.
Burger was juicy, cheese was sublime and the thin cut crispy fries were great.
Including alcoholic drinks it was about $20 per person for lunch. Not a shabby price for what I consider to be quite a posh restaurant.
Very good. It's a posh restaurant (white linen on the table) but yet casual enough (I was wearing shorts and flip-flops) for lunch. On a good day you can sit outside in the patio.

I am a local and this is probably one of the restaurants I go back to again and again. I love bringing visitors here because this probably has one of the best locations on the strip. The food is very good also. If the weather is nice, request a table on the patio. The patio literally sits on the strip, slightly elevated. You will be rewarded with a great view of the Bellagio Fountains across the street. In addition, you get to see another show. That would be all the people going up and down the strip. This can be quite interesting in and of itself. The food is very good. This is not what I think of as fancy french. This is simply good food. The wine list is well done and interesting. The wait staff is knowledgeable. I had one waiter who was a UNLV student majoring in Restaurant Management. He was very helpful in choosing wines. Another waiter was from Turkey and interesting to talk to. Reservations during busy times would be a good idea, however, we have never waited more than 30 minutes for a table.
Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed the potatoe soup with a slice of brie. The pate is excellent. There are a number of steaks and chicken dishes. The "pommes frites" served with many dishes is a cross between french fries and potato chips.
I'd read a bit about Mon Ami Gabi before I went to Vegas. From what I can gather it is the only outdoor eating place on the strip. We had lunch on the patio one afternoon and were sitting there long enough to see the fountain show at the Bellagio. The fountain show across the street and the alfresco dining is what makes Mon Ami Gabi that little bit more... talked about.
Favorite Dish: Sitting outside and being very hot I chose to have a salad, which was actually tastier than it sounds. My boyfriend had a sandwich with crisps (potato chips) which was fairly huge by my standards. We were also given a baguette to share before our meal which came in a paper bag, as it was in a bag I thought we could take it with us when we left but the waiter took it away before we had chance to ask for it. Oh well.
I had heard some not very complimentary things about this branch of Mon Ami Gabi on various travel boards but I was tired of walking and it was extremely hot outside so I stopped here anyways for lunch. Mon Ami Gabi is one of my favorite places to eat in Chicago when I have a taste for French bistro food and I thought this location was comparable to the one in Chicago.
Even though it was about 100 degrees outside some people were still eating on the patio, I grabbed a table inside which had a view of the patio.
The service was quick, pleasant and efficient.
Favorite Dish: I usually go for dinner to the one in Chicago and order steak frites, since it was lunch I ordered a steak sandwich with carmelized onions and frites and I thought it was pretty good and very filling and reasonably priced. I really wanted to order dessert but I just didn't have enough room.
Mon Ami Gabi
I highly recommend this restaurant in the Paris Las Vegas Casino. They have several options for dining rooms, including a dark all wood room, a lighter room with wicker and outside dining right on the strip. It is authentically and beautifully decorated in heavy drapes, bistro chairs, bench seating and stained glass.
The feel of the Mon Ami Gabi is pure Parisian Bistro and it accompanies a menu, which is as close to Parisian Bistro as I’ve seen in America.
Hot rustic bread with sweet butter was served immediately. The bread was in a bag and nice and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
My husband and I both had the special of the day, Creamed Tomato soup and it was very good. Then I had a filet mignon with merlot butter, which was extraordinary. It came with the most unusual fries I’ve ever eaten. (This meal is called Steak Frites in France.) The fries were super thin pieces and had the taste and feel of onion rings but were definitely potatoes. Now that I am back home I fantasize about them.
I had a glass of Grenache and my husband Beaujolais, both from France and both excellent. My husband had the Macaroni and Cheese in Mornay sauce that was also wonderful, filled with chunks of ham and several cheeses.
We were too full for dessert.
Mon Ami Gabi, with the white table clothes, heavy silver service and dark room was a great restaurant, with attentive staff and a nice quiet cool atmosphere. I can’t wait to return and try more of the extensive menu including crepes, quiche and omelettes. They are open for lunch and dinner.
Favorite Dish: Filet Mignon with Merlot Butter
