"The warm goat cheese in a tomato basil cream was delish."
"Scallop gratinees - they turned out to be too good to share."

My colleagues and I went here for Restaurant Week in the Spring of 2016 and had an excellent experience. It's a French restaurant in the heart of the new downtown Bethesda with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The staff is attentive and the food quality, delicious French food. Every table gets a paper bag of long baguettes and butter to nibble on as you order your food. I recommend the French Onion soup and the steak frites (with the mushroom creamed sauce)!

Went with my girlfriend to introduce her to my best friend and his wife. Lured by fond memories of soup loaded with cheese, what I got was a far cry from that. Fraction of the cheese (the surface wasn't even half way covered). Moving on to our halibut, it was dry. How do you dry out halibut? My only conclusion can be that it it was cooked at 5 and kept under a heat lamp until I ordered at 830. The dessert and single drink I had were fine. Then the bill came, $72 for this. What a joke.

An alumni dinner at Mon Ami Gabi was a nice consolation in making me momentarily forget and feel better about how much I owe in dental school debt. We were treated to a four course dinner where we were given a prefix menu with 3-4 selections for each course (except for salad course). My classmate and I decided to split each course to sample as many items as possible. We opted for warm Brie and scallop gratinees for appetizers, chicken pillard and mustard salmon for entrees, and profritoles and chocolate mousse for desserts. They started us off with warm, toasty house made French baguette with soften better. Carbs and I are inseparable - I especially appreciated that they spent the time and effort in heating them up! These baguettes were the perfect munch as they worked up our appetites on what were to come! Scallop gratinees - they turned out to be too good to share. I polished my plate clean before acknowledging "oh ya we were supposed to split". The cheesy, bubbly cream over the sweet, caramelized onion baked over meaty, whole scallop. Wished there were more than 3! Mustard salmon - moist, flavorful, made to perfection. Paired with citrus sauce over the buttery, creamy mashed potato - what a nice contrast! Chicken pillard - the chicken was a bit dry for my taste. However the baked kabocha squash and mushroom sides were beyond delicious! I would order this dish again just got the sides alone! Profitoles - puff pastries filled with giant scoops of vanilla ice cream and drenched in chocolate fudge sauce - what is there to not love? Pure scrumptious! Chocolate mousse - light, smooth, and airy - everything a chocolate mousse should be! Loved the extra crunch from the dark chocolate puffs and the additional creaminess from the whipped cream! Since I have a reputation of insatiable appetite, all leftovers were generously offered to me. I was able to sample the traditional steak and creme brûlée. Tbh I'm not a big red meat eater - the steak was a bit tough and I didn't think it was all that special. However, the dollop of herb butter over the steak was a nice touch!. The creme brûlée on the other hand was out of the world! Rich, decadent, so so so good. Already had eaten 6 courses worth of food, my stomach managed to expand further and finished everything. Overall, what a treat! Service was beyond attentive even in a private, large group setting. Price can be a bit steep but well worth it! Happy belly = happy alumni. Hope my school hosts all future alumni events at Mon Ami a Gabi! I will be sure to clear my schedule to attend!

Was here for a business trip and the restaurant was quite busy so I sat in the bar area. The meal was quite good, the onion soup was especially yummy. The service was great too. Upon leaving, the server offered me a free dessert as well! Very good French food overall.

The warm goat cheese in a tomato basil cream was delish. I also had the seafood crepe which was full of flavor. The prime steak sandwich was also impressive.

I came here with my mother for brunch. The place has a great ambiance. Excellent, strong coffee. I ordered the eggs benedict. My biggest pet peeve are brunch places that screw up the poached eggs, but this one came out well. My mother ordered an omelet and was similarly pleased.
