One of the best french meals I have had in a long time. The atmosphere was very nice and the layout makes you feel that you are in another country. Started out with French Onion soup / Housemade country Pate / Warm triple cream cheese --- all three were amazing.... Moved on to the Steak and Frites, a must for... More

On a weekend night reservations are pretty much required of you don't want to sit in the bar. The food was quite well done, although the frites were served cold. At the beginning of the meal service was attentive but leisurely. Many in the group took advantage of a three course prix fix deal. Within minutes of plates being cleared... More

Mon Ami Gabi simply has worked out the right formula for making its customers happy. There is always an upbeat atmosphere (although sometimes the noise level is high), and the food is consistently above par. A Saturday night at the neighboring independent film theater and dinner at Mon Ami is a perfect combination. Service is excellent, and if something goes... More

This is our real go to restaurant for a great meal. Their steak and pomme frites are all great choices. The pomme frites are a meal in themselves. For lunch, their onion soup and crepes can't be beat. Great ambience, but a little noisy.

We are regulars at this place, often going for the best happy-hour deal is the area and then going to the nearby movie. The happy-hour menu is short but very nice. The French Onion soup is spectacular.

Three couples met at Mon Ami Gabi for brunch. Have been there before also. The food is consistently good and the service is attentive. The only down side is the noise level when it's full. Then you have to crane your neck to hear well. Otherwise, you can't go wrong.

I dined at Mon Ami Gabi with a friend two weeks ago, continuing a tradition of dining there at least 4 times a year, for the past several years. Our dinner entre selections, whether fish or beef, are always prepared well and delicious, and do change with the seasons. I especially love the salmon. The appetizers and desserts are delicious,...

Excellent dinner seated outside at a cafe table. We had leek and potata soup as our appetizer, the Steak & Frites for our entree, followed by a great flourless chocolate cake for dessert... all accompanied by a very nice wibe selected by our waiter. Wonderful repast on an unseasonably warm March evening.

Mon Ami Gabi is a good choice when compared to other restaurants in downtown Bethesda. The food is quite good (but not excellent) and the prices are better than many other restaurants in the area. However, although Mon Ami Gabi advertises itself as a "French" restaurant, this is somewhat of a stretch. Some of the food is French (e.g., steak... More

Went with friends for lunch. Been here many times over the years. Even a member of Lettuce Entertain You. I ordered escargot. It was terrible. Tasted like oil was used instead of butter. First bite I took was terrible. They hadn't cleaned the snail so it had a clump of fatty stuff! My friend ordered the Quiche. She cut me... More
