Everything was so good! About as close to authentic French cuisine you can get without having to fly to France! Tres bien! We went for brunch and I was SO impressed! We will be back!

Food was pretty good. I thought that if they would have used better pieces of chicken my dish would have been better. I will definitely go there again.

I loved the food but was annoyed they made you pay for refills of tea. Also, it’s very loud and ware house like, so not warm and cozy. The waiter also made me keep my fork after the appetizer and did not bring clean silverware for the dinner. For a 5 star restaurant I would train my servers better. After getting a headache from how loud it was I was ready to get out of there. I’d give it a 3 star experience. The room needs work too. The siding was falling off on the walls and it wasn’t very pretty. They should fix it up more.

Had a great time for my birthday! Our server was lovely. The sign outside said they closed at 9 however we were told they closed at 8 and had a 7:30 reservation for 8 people, which made us feel like we were probably a little unwanted there but everything else was great.

Love the European feel, with distance between tables. Room design lends to a higher decibel noise level.

Food is great, service has room for improvement. Short staffed is not an excuse for little care about giving people in the line some attention.

Maybe we missed something we went for breakfast but the crepes were not good at all and the French onion soup was burned . It was our first time there & we did like the atmosphere if we give it a second chance we will try the sandwiches.

Entrees were nothing special, but ok. Short rib dinner portion was unbelievably small (and I am not a big eater). Caesar salad was delicious. Eclairs were stale. Service was very good.

I had a great time with my girls at dinner! The menu had so many options and for all of my friend unique taste buds. We started with Mac & Cheese Croquettes. They were perfectly cooked, deliciously cheesy & was served with a complimenting tomato sauce. Our second order of these were better than the first!!! We also enjoyed the charcuterie board with elegant and tasteful cheeses (salmon too!!).

Our eyes were definitely bigger than our stomachs when we ordered the Crab Beignets. However, after eating just one, I needed more! Again, these were cooked to perfection and paired with a delightful sauce. For entrees, we all shared the Duck a l’Orange & lavender chicken. Both very tasty, served with rich mashed potatoes and veggies! ALSO, the truffle oil bruschetta was a great addition to this entree!

Overall, Mon Ami, did not disappoint. Whether you want to be adventurous or stick to your usual, they have just want your looking for. The server & cook met all of our requests and were accommodating to our needs. They offered recommendations to our liking for our wine choices and had plenty to choose from.

My fiends and I enjoyed being able to sit down, chat and actually be able to hear one another while enjoying a beautiful dinner. The atmosphere took us away from the rush of our daily lives & was relaxing.

I would 10/10 recommend for any occasion & any food craving. I almost forgot to mention.. I also ordered French fries, as I rarely go a meal without, and without fail they may have been the best I’ve had in Buffalo! If you give Mon Ami a try for no other reason, give it a try for the fries & wine🎉

Chose restaurant based on reviews- we arrived :10 early and ended up waiting over an hour for our very simple lunch order— French dip sandwiches, soup etc. Waiter apologized several time and brought the kids croissants. Apparently our order went in after a large of about 10. When we did finally get our lunch, there was a hair in a sandwich and the waffles were dried out and cold as if they’d been sitting a while. For $145 for 6 people lunch, we were disappointed.

We were in town for an event, the website looked great, but we found the Portions to be small compared to the price, and the food was under seasoned. The service was good. The dining area was very open, a bit loud. Was disappointed that they only served wine and 4 beers. No alcohol. Will not be returning.

Poor service, to the point where it felt like we were bothering our waitress when we needed something (like sugar or cream for the sour black coffee we were served, or a set of utensils). The coffee was questionable, food was okay. We were given the check without asking for it, although we had still planned to order more. In all, not the most welcoming or enjoyable experience. Aesthetically, the ambiance was nice.

Dinner before theater, so a bit time constraint. Appetizer came with dinner, would have appreciated if served before the meal. Alerted our waitress and the manager quickly addressed the delay.
Meal presented beautifully and all four dinners were delicious.

Pre-theatre dinner. Only one off-note: my husband had the duck: it was not rendered. A big layer of fat to cut away. Duck takes a long time - should be pre-prepped.
