One of Bethesda's best. Often go there with my husband weekly. Wonderful service--way above the norm (Rubin is amazing; others outstanding). Fish--especially fish of the day--is always fresh & good. Some of the old French standards--cook all-day fall off the bone red meat consistently is wonderful as well. Veggies are great but wish there were a few steamed (less buttery) choices, as well. Mon Ami does like butter and cream, as do the French. However, it usually can be served on the side or left out if you ask. Restaurant is very accommodating about taste & dietary preferences.

Wow! I walked into Mon Ami Gabi just a little after 5PM on a weeknight and the place was packed. There's a small bar with bistro tables for happy hour and the specials can't be beat. I had the escargots and they were delicious. I will certainly return for a full meal next time I'm in Bethesda. 5 Stars!

Mon Ami is gross. What used to be a reliable standby has progressively slipped over the years, making it near inedible in recent years. Food is bland, tasteless, overcooked, and over seasoned. Kitchen execution is horrendous. Service is slow, disinterested, and fails to ask after your food or empty glass. Space is crowded and loud and showing its age. This is a chain that needs a serious overhaul.

Attractive place with good food, but on the expensive side for what it is.

We had a delicious meal. I really enjoyed the "Housemade Country Pâté". The "Caramelized Sea Scallops" entree was really good too. I have not had delightfully made "Crème Brûlée" in a very long time. We sat inside at a table for two with a nice window view. The atmosphere was very welcoming, a little high volume at times, but not annoying. Our overall experience was very good.

For those who do not know any better the food is acceptable. You would do better to just hop over to Le Pain Quotidien and grab a meal there and save your $$$.

When I take the Metro to work, I almost always stop at Mon Ami Gabi on the way home, one of my guilty pleasures. For a late lunch I love their Prime Beef Sandwich or Au Poivre Burger, always consistent and always great. For a dinner entree you won't be able to beat their Beef Bourginon or Steak Bernaise anywhere, including New York. The staff at this location is very personable, the service is absolutely first class, and while I am a big fan, I avoid the place on weekends because it can get too crowded and too noisy for my personal taste. In fact it seems more crowded than their Vegas location, also worth a visit, so I wish they would take reservations more seriously to mean fewer customers for a quiet and leisurely dining experience. That aside, Mon Ami Gabi is a real treat that you shouldn't miss if you love French cuisine.
