We all had different fish dinners, and each was wonderful. We sat on the outside side patio where it was quiet.

I have a gluten allergy and ordered the onion soup from the gluten-free menu. I was served the regular onion soup. The bartender noticed and took it away and got me the right one. Yeah!

My food was brought long before my companion’s and my duck when I was just starting the soup. A manager, I believe, came by and noticed my duck getting cold. She offered a different one. Even at that, my companion had to wait a very long time for her food.

Food was very good. Initial service was problematic but in both cases, someone was observant and helped. No excuse for very late service to my friend.

The reservation system worked very well. We requested a change of seat location to be more comfortable and it was done without any objection. We had the plat du jour, the Dover sole, and it was fantastic, a big menu in itself. The expresso coffee with the lemon rind was smooth and delicious. Going early in the evening made it a more quiet and comfortable experience, as Mon Ami Gabi tends to get very full. Excellent choice before or after a movie at the Bethesda Row Cinema.

Birthday once again at my favorite restaurant in Bethesda. As always best frisée salad with poached egg, others ordered the salmon salad and all loved it.
Thank you Mon Ami Gabi for the lovely birthday profiteroles!

Excellent management under the friendly and superb Adam shows throughout the restaurant staff which created a memorable Mother's Day brunch. Mon Ami Gabi is reliable unlike so many other dining experiences around DC- sometimes good; sometimes not. Here there are always well trained and gracious servers, never rushed but prompt arrival of courses, and very good food at a great price. Even on packed days like ours, everything was lovely.

The restaurant has definitely gone down a great deal over the years. We sat outside on a beautiful evening, which was nice, but the waiter was terrible. He never filled water, he got the order wrong and it took over an hour to just get a simple steak frites.

I finally flagged him down to pay and he started to apologize but I think it was mainly to try and save his tip. It didn't.

The feelings were somewhat mixed at our table. One diner had been to Mon Ami Gabi many times and loves it. He ordered a salmon entree which looked delish and reportedly was quite tasty. A few of us had the steak frites. While the frites were really very good, the steak was disappointing - it was a very thin cut of meat and, even with a sauce, had no flavor at all. Seriously, no flavor. Another diner at our table had the Beef Wellington (a Sunday special), which was a much nicer/thicker cut of filet. Biggest all-around complaint was our service. Waitress had little personality, and rarely circled back to check on our table. When she finally came back 10 minutes after runners delivered the entrees, I asked for the spinach side which had been ordered but not delivered. She said she'd check on it but then wandered around the dining room a bit more, returning 5 minutes later to refill water but still no spinach. At that point, I was ¾ done with my entree, so said I didn't need/want the spinach anymore. No apology, no sense that she cared. I think the restaurant overall is fine, but it's an unfortunate reality that a poor server can color one's feelings about a restaurant, so I won't be back since there are so many other places one can go dine.

We watched the Kentucky Derby and the bartender made a drink for us. We came back for dinner after a movie. The waiter was very kind and brought me an extra glass of wine and a dessert because the entree came out too quickly. We always like the warm atmosphere at this restaurant

We’ve fined at Mon Ami Gabi several times and we love the escargots and filet in particular. The waitstaff was very attentive despite it being a very busy Saturday night. The restaurant was lively but not overly loud which made the ambience fun and enjoyable. Highly recommend for consistent high quality food!

I have been here quite a few times over the years. I reserved a table for six for my birthday. I was disappointed in the delay of service. Too many tables in the back. Because of the tile floor the noise level was high. The waiter was hustling to try to please everyone. The ceasar salad's dressing was tasteless. The Classique prime steak was only 1/2" thick and covered with too much sauce. The frites were cold. The berry bread pudding was tasteless. I did love the birthday classic profiteroles.

I normally love Mon Ami, for their amazing steaks and service, however, it was a mistake to visit during Bethesda Restaurant Week. We went for a deal but all we received was a steamed, flattened steak with cold fries and horrible service. Not good :(
