Enjoyed our experience, a perfect spot for a spontaneous outdoor late lunch on a warm fall day. The escargot and salad as well as the fish and veggies were certainly appealing though not extraordinary. On the whole, nothing to complain about. Service was OK.

Expected a great French meal, based on reviews. Was disappointed. Ordered the French onion soup for a starter and the mussels as a main. The soup, while generous in size, was under seasoned and lacked flavor. Nice presentation, just not what I had expected. The mussels were also generous in size, but had not been adequately rinsed and, therefore, had... More

I had a chicken sandwich with brie cheese and apple and my husband had egg benedict. The food was just at the average mark, not very impressive. However, the glasses for water was not fully cleaned. I saw lipstick marks on my cup and my husband cup had bread cromb. The bathroom was also very dirty and not well maintained.... More

We had a business dinner in one of the back rooms so the location was quiet and convenient. And staff was nice. But food was disappointing. Escargots were served too fat with much butter. Fish was overcooked and consequently dry. Creme brulee as dessert was OK nothing more. Plus a white Chardonnay tasteless.

The bistro is fairly typical - loud and bustling. Our group[ had starters and different versions of steak, all of which were very good. Overall a very good place for lunch and dinner. Highly recommend, especially for the steak.

The place has a charming interior. It is a little louder than I would wish, but tolerable. The entrees and side dishes were very good.

A very popular restaurant especially among the residents of Bethesda. Very crowded restaurant especially during the weekend. Food acceptable 7 out of 10. Good for a family's lunch or diner out.

This is a great restaurant, I like the hot freshly backed bread they bring as a starter with some butter and carrots salad. They have great items in their menu with very reasonable prices. The only shortcoming is that the menu is poor, there are few varieties on it compared to menus of other good restaurants have, but still, it... More

Mon Ami Gabi is a staple for an older crowd and upscale family dining in Bethesda. The food is expensive, but reliable. The wine also is expensive, with some house choices excellent and others not very good. I am afraid success is spoiling the place, however, It remains busy and crowded, but the service has become rushed, with wait staff... More
