All around fabulous
The restaurant noise level is too high and it is difficult to carry on a conversation
Our server was wonderful. Loved sitting outside. Steak was a little flavorless. And I’d expect a better wine by the glass list at a French bistro. We do like the restaurant and will be back.
We are frequent guests of Mon Ami and have found the service and food excellent. However, on this past occasion for lunch, we were all disappointed with the service -- slow, inconsistent and wrong orders arrived. DISAPPOINTED!! Hope this is one off.
My friends and I meet regularly at Mon Ami Gabi in Bethesda and have always had lovely food and an enjoyable time. But on this occasion we found the dining room had new, stiff, and rather uncomfortable chairs. We still had an enjoyable time, but just shifted on our seats more than usual.
Disappointing meal this time
Slow service, food was good
Did I say very slow service
We go to Mon Ami on a regular basis as our children and I love the escargot.
The service and food is usually very good. I rated 4 stars as I ordered fillet Mignon au poivre it came with a bordelaise sauce by mistake. I attracted a server and they replaced the sauce but the time I received it the steak was cold and so was the sauce.
If you go on a Sunday and sit outside there is a street musician across the road. At first you hear his music and think it’s ok but to be honest when he plays the same thing fot 2 hours it can get quite painful. In my opinion Mon Ami is a little overpriced but they are usually pretty regular in good delivery and food.
Great meal, great service, good menu choices. A bit dark inside for my elderly Mother in Law to see food.
We truly enjoyed Mon Ami and the food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
Three friends met for lunch to talk and catch up on our lives. We had the back room to ourselves and were there for over 2 hours. Perfect afternoon! We lunch here often together.
Food was excellent service ambiance. I should have dined outside as it was a beautiful day
All good, sat outside with girlfriends Thursday for lunch.
We were seated in the back dining room, but asked to be moved before we ordered, as there was a young child screaming at one of the tables. The hostess said no problem and moved us (and several other tables) and we had a lovely dinner.
Great time celebrating a birthday
The steak was tough and over salted - we had requested a table in the main dining room and when we arrived there were several available but they insisted they were reserved so they stuck us in the back dingy back room - we could see the tables that they said were reserved and they remained unoccupied the whole time . Terrible experience with both food and atmosphere
Wonderful service, Gregory Smith was my waiter and he made the experience just amazing!
Mon Ami Gabi is consistently great. From the friendly and professional staff to the delicious food, it is one of my favorite places to go when I want to pamper myself.
We ate outside and it was beautiful. Food was delicious and waiter was on top of it. We had a much needed date night. Highly recommend.
Had escargot which were prepared the correct French way. Overall the hanger steak was good quality and well prepared. Service was very attentive - will definitely come back.
Fantastic brunch, I had Ahi tuna nicoise, friends had eggs Benedict, omelettes, all perfect. Sat outside on side patio, very nice! Everything you want in a basic French bistro.
Water was room temperature without ice. Took a while to get a drink. Food was very good.
This was our second time here. It’s clearly a beloved neighborhood restaurant. It was packed inside and outside. Service was slow but only because it was so crowded. I was pleased there was a gluten free menu. Trout almandine was delicious but a little oily. I ordered artichoke appetizer but wasn’t sure how to eat it. It wasn’t sliced. Everyone who got steak enjoyed — filet, ny strip, etc. but filet is a little pricey at $36. Kids were disappointed that dessert crepes listed on specials board were not available. Peach sorbet was just ok. Chocolate mousse was a little gritty. Overall food was good. It was too warm inside. Turn the air up please!
Good food a french bistro setting. The service is good but not cloying which is nice. There are some dusty bottles perched high in the restaurant that could use a good cleaning which would give this restaurant the refresh it deserves!
Great steak fries
Sent the steak back TWICE, asking them to cook the steak longer, and it still came back bleeding. Took forever. Not good experience overall, wouldn’t go back or recommend.
Outside is not as nice as inside, but inside was too noisy.
Either no service or rude service. french fries were bottom of the bushel and should not have been served. worst experience ever in many years of greatness. Definitely an off day. sad.
Steaks were very good. Drinks were good. Price, as expected for the area. Its a fairly loud place. The server could have been a bit more gracious when taking orders. For example, when walking to a table where the lady has just taken a bite of bread, she should order first, but cant. So, excuse and come back in a minute for the order.. sometimes its the little things. Definitely worth a meal when visiting
BD celebration. Wonderful evening.
My mother in law had fallen and hurt her arm and needed a pick me up and this did the trick! We had a table outside and the service was wonderful! We started with. Gazpacho soup and champagne 🥂 and then chicken and mushroom crepe which is consistently delicious ! So happy she enjoyed herself 😎
We notified the reception about the high chair being broken and unsafe - they said ok but proceeded to do nothing about it
We had a one-year old baby boy with us, so sat outside on a nice mild sunny day with a light breeze. Outside was perfect, and our waiter was also - polite, kind, attentive. The food was great, Sunday brunch. I had scrambled eggs with steak instead of bacon, easily substituted.
Service was excellent. Food was up to expectations. Sat outside. Was a very enjoyable evening.
Our first bad meal and service here. Our waiter, Ruben had an attitude right from the start. He brought my glass of wine in a dirty glass, ugh. My wife's steak was dry and the frites were old and just barely warm. Ruben was no where to be found, never checked on our meal, we were heading to a movie so no time to request replacements by the time Ruben did show his face we just asked for the check. Ten minutes later it showed up and another 3 minutes to get our credit card back.
Not my cup of tea. Small portions and nothing special. Service was great. Just not so good food portion wise and taste.
Dinner with friends. Honored table request. When dinner served, one dish was not what was ordered. Check on table was delayed. Replaced dish after the table was half way through our meal. No comp if coffee or dessert. Disappointing.
We've been here twice and the food was incredible both times. The servers were way above anything we've had in years. It was busy the second time we went and I could tell our server was swamped and there were a few long periods where we didn't see him. But when he came to the table he immediately Thanked us for our patience, and then gave us all the time in the world. Excellent recommendations. Just another great experience.
Huge improvement on our last visit, knowledgeable server, good service , good food , appropriately priced, minimalist menu done well
Two meals were overdone and not good. The menu has limited vegetarian options so I always have to get the caesar salad as my entree. Not a good choice.
Too bad. There are countless vegetarian entrees that Mon Ami Gabi could offer. It is very disappointing when the duck for one guest is overcooked and the steak for another was too tough to eat, and the French fries were mushy and had to be returned for a new batch.
All in all, a very bad dinner for four.
Wonderful all around with a touch of European ambiance!
