Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro style restaurant located at street level in the Paris casino at Las Vegas. They specialize in Classic Bistro Fare including crepes and quiches. “Mon Ami” means “My Friend” in French and “Gabi” is for renown Chef and Owner Gabino Sotelino. We dined at lunch time.
Decor, Vibe – French bistro brassiere decor with beautiful large dining rooms and walls of wine inside and a big street side patio outside. Lots of tourists were dining. Lots of people watching outside.

Onion Soup ($8.95) au Gratin baked with gruyere cheese was good with a thick cheese crust. Very strong oniony broth. Not as good as the best versions of this classic though.
Steak Sandwich & Frites caramelized onions ($13.95) was a very good sandwich. The sweet onions help mask the ‘beef’ flavor and make this more of a French dish. Not a lot of thinly cut steak but enough for lunch. Good fries.
Mushroom Crêpe with small frisee salad ($10.95) was very simple but cooked well. Very thin and light with the mushrooms.
Smoked Salmon ($11.95) had some thinly sliced, well smoked salmon with toast. A nice combination with some onions and capers.
Kids Fish Fingers & Frites ($6.95) had some good fish and big pieces of it. Nice tasty fries.
Kids Macaroni & Cheese ($4.95) was pretty average.
Mon Ami Gabi had marginal service. We had to pull teeth to get refills, were never asked how food was, etc. A nice touch was the hot baugette. Prices were reasonable for this level of food on the Strip especially at lunch. Comparison’s with Bouchon come to mind, with Bouchon clearly outclassing this restaurant in terms of food and service. Kids menu available.
Mon Ami Gabi has locations in Chicago, Oak Brook, Bethesda, and Reston.
