Mon Ami Gabi - Bethesda
Book your next event with us
Perfect for the birthday celebration for the senior.
We had a reservation and were seated right away. The service and food was perfect. The location is nice too.
Tasty fare but Too pricey: $20 for grilled veggies & about the same for eggs???
Neh don wanna
Restaurant was highly recommended and the food and service were excellent. Unfortunately, in spite of reserving a table almost three weeks in advance, we were placed at a table for 4 right behind the host/hostess desk right in front of the exterior door. Since it was a cold night, cold air blew in on the table and the two sitting nearest to the door had to wear their coats while eating dinner. No one was overly concerned about our situation. Recommend that the restaurant purchase a screen to place in front of exterior door. It was my first time at the restaurant and when I went back to use the restroom, I saw it was quite large. It is a shame no one offered to relocate us.
Vegan onion soup was more like a lentil onion soup. Recommend using a cashew type vegan cheese and skip so much lentil
We were and starte with sharing a liver pate. I order a sea bass special for entree and our friend ordered the Dover sole. The sea bass was not as described by the waiter and he brought out some of what was missing but it was still not as described and I should have sent it back. The sole was disappointing as well.
MAG is consistently good with a fun vibe, good food, and a well-trained waitstaff. Always a good experience.
Great food, personal service, friendly staff, and good location all make this a great place to celebrate milestones, or just enjoy time with friends and family.
Fun, lively and an overall great experince
As always enjoyed it! I did however feel a bit rushed which was strange because it was not crowed.
Celebrated my Dad’s service in the Marine Corps for Veterans Day and the team made it very special.
Went for my birthday dinner. The restaurant seems a bit darker than the last time I visited. The filet was excellent, cooked well and the service is as usual excellent.
food at sunday brunch was very good. service was attentive and quick.
Food and service was great. Loved the ambiance and the quality of the food.
Our food came out to us very quickly, and the food was wonderful.
Terrific NY strip, with perfectly prepared fries and broccoli on the side. Combine that with a generous drink and well-made piece of salmon for my wife with a glass of Sancerre, you have a real nice Friday night. See you again soon.
The food and service is always great! We have been regulars for almost 20 years...
It's a true bistro and a reliable place to go for a good meal.
We have been for Sunday brunch and found the menu quite limited. We liked the onion soup, the steak was rather good, but it is being served with French fries only, no veggies substitution. The crepe with chicken and mushrooms was not the best, sorry. Wine was good, service was attentive. And we do like the ambience. Overall, a bit disappointed.
We heading for Mon Ami Gabi Saturday night after a bad experience at another local restaurant. Mon Ami Gabi restored our faith in humanity. Great food (escargot, artichoke heart, duck confit, chocolate mousse) , well crafted drinks, and above and beyond service from Tim.
Greg Smith, our waiter was outstanding, and we all enjoyed our dinner.
We usually enjoy Mon Ami, but this time the wait staff were practically non-existent, one dish was good but not great and the other was middling.
Excellent, thoughtful (I am deaf and 89 years old) service; great lunch for my friend's birthday.
We plan to return for ALL birthdays!
The service and the food were outstanding. I definitely recommend this place
Would have liked the Vacqueras glass I ordered to be in stock. Plan better for Friday night, guys! Also, consider some ambient music in background. Not very lively at 8p on a Friday night
Waiter smelled like cigarette smoke and seemed in a rush while waiting on my table. Wasn’t the most enjoyable. The frites has changed to larger fries. The dessert was not good. The banana foster is discontinued. I’ve been eating here and the Las Vegas location for years. Not the same.
Still one of our favorites. We split a Prime Steak entree; the kitchen sliced it horizontally and still managed to keep a warm pink center. Excellent table service. Kudos to the staff.
Our server Rueben was awesome. Very good experience and will look for additional opportunities at other locations of this small chain.
A truly charming place with exquisite menu and impeccable service
Best Hanger steak I've ever had. We were seated promptly (per our reservation) and the service was prompt as well
Our waiter was amazing, his recommendations and service. The food was delicious. We had brunch, started with escargot and was so good, dip your bread to get all the sauce. I had chicken and mushroom crepe and couldn't finish, large portion. One friend had steak and frites medium, I will have to get next time. Another got the 3 eggs w sausage and potatoes. We ended with 2 scoops sorbet, Concord grape and peach. Very refreshing.
Nice, reliable eatery. However, noise level is high and makes it difficult to have a decent conversation. Too bad most restaurants in the area do not consider ambience as a critical part of a meal.
There are no bad choices here. Very knowledgeable staff and excellent service.
always a delight!!
This place has been a standard for us for years after a movie at Bethesda Row. However, tonight’s meal was a disappointment. Ordered the $37 halibut with sun chokes very disappointing.
First time patron and it was lovelier than I had even expected. The service was exemplary and the food was delicious with ample portions. Just a lovely restaurant which, judging by the filled spaces, is a very popular venue, and I look forward to my next visit.
I have enjoyed multiple meals at Mon Ami Gabi over the years -- and the service has always been outstanding! Therefore I was surprised, disappointed, and embarrassed when my guests and I had such a terrible experience yesterday. The server was careless -- maybe inexperienced? We asked him to replace the bread -- which was HARD -- and although he took away the hard loaf, and said he'd replace it, he didn't. He didn't refill the coffee. At one point, he did offer me coffee, and when I asked for decaf, he didn't bring it. It took forever for the food to appear which may have been a kitchen problem. It also took forever to get the check. It was a bad experience. Maybe you have better servers at dinner?
Good food reasonably priced along with great service. A Bethesda staple.
We go to Mon Ami Gabi frequently and always value the service and food.
