Having lived in Bethesda in the early 90s, it was a pleasant shock to see how much it's changed, including "Restaurant Row" where Mon Ami Gabi stands at one end of a long line of restaurants. I've been to the one in Vegas, so was hoping the service/food would be the same quality, and it definitely was. Atmosphere was quiet in the early evening when we sat down, but ramped up as the evening progressed, waiters were attentive and gave good recommendations,and the food was done well and priced accordingly. Out of three nights there we actually went twice, because we knew it would be consistent service, and we weren't feeling the rest of the choices on the block at the time. Living in the NYC/Northern NJ area, I wish they'd open up somewhere by us, because the consistency and charm would save me from mediocre/overpriced/inconsistent french bistro food up here!
