“Best scargots au parnesan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

French, a mix in between nouveaux and traditional cousine. Great scargots, good champagne, ask for a great filet mignon. Desserts are not as good as the rest of its food. Prize is ok. It is in a middle of a great neighborhood, the one with the most number of Masters, PHD and Md in the world. Yes, in the world. Need to make a reservation if you want to go at night. No formal. It's a relaxed environment. One of my favorites in DC area.

“The French Say What?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We have been to "Mon Ami Gabi" before and it is the closest to a Parisian bistro that I have found in the U.S. An important point is that it is easy to over order. We had a cold potato/leek soup that had a little too much cream but was overall good. A very good chicken liver pate and savory crepes that were good but a little too thick. The brunch was a prelude to a movie about the French revolution. Next.

“Our favorite spot - a French Bistro.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The bartenders in this place - Shawn, Gabrielle and Mark - fabulous service. Great vine selection, food and prizing. The happy hour is a great deal, bu sure to be there before 5 PM! We come about once a week.

“Relaxing atmosphere, down to earth service, good food”

It's crowded, yet once you're seated it's easy to forget the crowd and just enjoy an excellent meal.

“French wannabe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

It has a pretty nice atmosphere, nice Paris style tables outside in warm weather. The food is decent but not anything like real French food.
