I celebrated my birthday here with my son. The service was great, very attentive, made me feel special. The server was very nice and friendly. I always had a great experience with service whenever I come here. The food was delicious too, esp the porfiteroles!:-)

My wife and I dined at Mon Ami Gabi for a belated Valentines Day dinner. We were seated right away,our waiter was friendly and always available and the menu had lots of options that we both loved. The food was fantastic and the service was spectacular. They had something on the menu I always wanted to try called the beef Wellington and it was delicious. My wife had the hanger steak which I tasted and I will probably get next time I go. We shared the mussel appetizer and the goat cheese salad and we both got yummy desserts. I will definitely be back.

Expected a lovely Sunday brunch but service was excruciatingly long. We ordered quiche and a salad and it took about 45 minutes. Also we had to flag down the waiter to get them to check on the meal.

Food was just ok.

Great ambiance; good service; gourmet food; delicious bread; great dessert; however they serve ALMOST NO VEGETABLES WIT THE ENTREES; with my trout amandine I got a few pieces of green beans; of my two other friends who ordered salmon dishes, one got very few tasteless white beans (by the way green and white beans should be served with meat not fish), my other friend got no vegetables at all, he is a young man who had to eat a lot of bread to fill full....Very disappointing. Only the friend who ordered the seafood crepe was satisfied.

The entire staff in this restaurant is friendly and service-oriented. We had no trouble with our gluten- and dairy-free concerns; they really get it. And of course the food is always wonderful!

A great restaurant where we have dined many times and will return many times. We were tight on a movie reservation and they were totally responsive in moving the order and delivery. They were just the very best.

First experience was a good one. Definitely plan to return in the spring/summer to sit outside and enjoy great food and drink on the patio. Great bistro feel and flavor.

Have eaten at Mon Ami Gabi in Bethesda for many, many years. The ambiance is always great, and the french bread outstanding. And our server Rueben was fantastic! He's waited on us before, and once again he was extremely attentive throughout our meal, was very helpful with some choices, and truly helped to make our anniversary dinner special.

The only item that was a disappointment was my steak with Bordalaise sauce. In the past, the portion of this entree was more generous. I recall the steak used to be a somewhat larger serving, and it was covered with yummy caramelized onions, with the great frittes overflowing on the plate.

Like many other restaurants, they are cutting back on portions, and that was a disappointment. Nothing stays the same anymore. But we will return, as so many other aspects were great, and it is one of our favorite places!

Would definitely recommend
