“Convenient to Bethesda Row Theatres, Gabi Will be Votre Ami, Too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Across the street from the Bethesda Barnes & Noble....right near the Bethesda Row theatres, Mon Ami Gabi is the perfect place for an after-movie or late weekend brunch. The food is delightful; we shared a baked goat cheese appetizer (exciting & comfort food all at once) and the pan-seared Rock Fish special: simple, elegant, perfectly sized and very tasty. The back room is a bit less noisy & crowded than the front, at least early on in the evening, so head there if you can.

“Delicious Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I love the ambience of Mon Ami Gabi. I feel like I'm in Paris. I had the seafood crepe and the bananas foster crepe. The seafood crepe was wonderful and so was the dessert crepe. Our waiter was attentive and good-humoured. All in all, a great dining experience!

“Gluten Free Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

My doctor recently put me on a gluten free diet and I thought eating out would never be the same, but then I found Mon Ami Gabi. They have a large GF menu that offers so many different choices- it was hard to choose! They served GF bread pior to the meal which is so unusual in restaurants and was very appreciated. The onion soup was amazing, though way too big! After eating the soup, I was only able to eat a few bites of my entree. Their GF deserts were also amazing. Ive already gone back once and plan to go again. For a Fri or Sat night, reservations are recommended.

“bad onion soup”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Happy hour is a good deal but very crowded, only 3 tables and 6 bar stools. Onion soup was horrible! They had cooked onions with sugar instead of salt.

“Authentic and a good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We arrived at 8 pm without reservations, on a whim after a movie just around the corner. It was packed for a Sunday night! The maitre d' took our phone number and called as we browsed at Barnes & Noble across the street which we chose over waiting at the bar. The decor and ambiance brought back fond memories of Paris, and the food did not disappoint. I had a flank steak in merlot sauce with a huge pile of frites - I will enjoy the half I could not eat for lunch tomorrow! We started with smoked salmon, nicely arrayed with chive, onion, sour cream, capers and toast points (more than enough for two, with the baguette, butter and carrot salad presented to all). Steaks ranged from $19 on up; some other entrees were even lower. Our half bottle of Medoc was a bit pricey @ $34, but they also offer nice wines by the glass, served from a roving trolley. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Overall, a lovely dinner - we will go again!
