We all had different fish dinners, and each was wonderful. We sat on the outside side patio where it was quiet.
Great for special occasion and everyday dining. The food are excellent and the service is outstanding. We will definitely coming back to try more in the menu.
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.
As good as always.
It was much too noisy and the food had too much butter .
Very nice selection on the menu. Particularly friendly service.
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.
Great wait staff. Yummy food. A little loud. A little pricey. Would go back.
I always enjoy the ambience at Mon Ami Gabi - it feels cozy and French! The service was impeccable. Our waiter was Gregory Smith - he is terrific. Very professional and enthusiastic and you will enjoy your meal.
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 food and service (my wife commented it was best French onion soup ever). And the small Mother’s Day gift cake was an unexpected surprise. And a very nice touch.
Really nice Mother’s Day dinner.
The Trout was delicious, i will be crack and order it again.
We had a wonderful experience on Mother's Day for an early dinner. Our server (Jessica) was fantastic and answered all of our questions. She had a very warm personality and made us feel welcome. Plus, the food was absolutely delicious. Thanks for such an awesome experience! We will be back!
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.
It is usually very crowded, but once one gets a spot, the food is consistently good and varied.
Always a favorite but some incomplete requests between wait staff and kitchen. Flavors seemed a bit off or weak on some dishes this time including spinach and artichoke benedict
Good. I accidentally booked for SaturdayPM instead of Sunday AM. They found us a table anyway- it’s Mother’s day! Crisis averted. Thank you Mon Ami Gabi!!
Another excellent meal post movies at the Landmark Bethesda. Great food, lovely outdoor seating, professional service.
As usual, excellent meal at Mon Ami's! Love their happy hour. This time went for dinner and food and service is consistently excellent!
Excellent service, waiter was very friendly, accommodating and efficient. We especially enjoyed the goat cheese appetizer and the trout amandine.
I have been to Mon Ami Gabi many times and have never been disappointed. Excellent food and service.
LOVED everything about this! Oh my gosh the food was incredible. I'll be back.
Excellent Service and an outside experience to end a very long week ... and a successful kickoff for some enterprise ventures!
You define Awesomeness!
Authentic French cuisine served by a superb staff with great knowledge of their menu. A treasure of a restaurant.
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.
Always order the trout at dinner. This time for lunch I ordered the quiche. The crust was burned. The dish was dry. Very disappointing.
Construction next door was too loud and dusty for us to sit outside. Not the restaurants fault. Inside dining is always good.
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 were celebrating a couple of birthdays in our group, and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and ambience. Food was delicious! The restaurant was quite crowded yet the service was prompt and pleasant. Would go there again
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
This was for a party of 8 and the food was delicious. I have been at this location several times and it’s always very good.
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!
Always wonderful. A rainy night so onion soup hit the spot. Our group of four all enjoyed the steaks and fish dishes. And then I made everyone have profiteroles and so now they love me even more! See you soon Mon Ami
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.
Always have a good meal there, however we were called one hour prior to the reservation that the restaurant was closed due to an emergency. Had to find a different restaurant spur of the moment.
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 :(
Jessica, our server, was amazing. She new exactly how to please!! I can't say enough about her professionalism and pleasant demeanor. Thank you Jessica!
The food was wonderful too! Great place for Brunch!
Always full and has good and delicious food. The bread is delicious
Our waiter was rude and our service overall was unpleasant. The bus boy was much more attentive than our server. Food was not appetizing.
Waiter was great. Friendly, answered all questions and provided the best service. Made sure our 5 year Anniversary was amazing.
