    We came in from Highland Park. We ordered ceaser salad and escargot as well as the fish special . We were served both at the same time. This is a no no. The special at $49.00 pricey for the portion and was salty. This was the first time we were disappointed dining here for 30 years.

Our server was wonderful she paced the evening perfectly. We all commented on the vibe and the quiet dining room. Mon Ami Gabi never disappoints! We will definitely go back!

    We always enjoy are meals at MAG. The service is professional and attentive. The food so fresh and tasty. The tables are a bit close, so expect people to be listening to your conversations and you can count on them hearing yours. Overall, still a special place to dine, but make your reservations early for they are very busy with a strong and loyal following.

    This restaurant is consistently excellent. The food is always fresh, expertly cooked and very tasty - from the delicious baguette, to the dessert. Every entree I've had there is perfect. The atmosphere is lovely. Elegant without being fussy. Some of the tables are a bit close together, making a private conversation difficult, but that is in keeping with the bistro atmosphere. Come here and you won't be disappointed.

    It was very warm in the restaurant last night and everyone at my table were sweating. No one wanted to say anything since we were there for my birthday dinner. I wished we would have told management and moved our table. The experience would have been more enjoyable.

    Patio dining is wonderful on a pleasant spring day. Manu includes seafood, chicken and steak options. One of us had the entree of mussels and could not finish it. The other person had steak bordelaise - the onion/wine sauce was wonderful. Finished off with creme brûlée, always a great choice here. Profiteroles are also a great choice.
