Delicious French food and authentic French bistro ambiance in a well-known site makes this little restaurant one of the most popular and sought after in downtown Bethesda. This was my second visit to Mon Ami Gabi during Happy Hour, which can't be beat with deliciously authentic French treats. I had the escargot (with the persillade butter) and French onion soup...

We use this place as our celebrations restaurant. New job? Engagement? Graduation? This is where our family goes. Great wait staff and dependable real French bread.

Twice a week they have a loud band playing in the bar, which makes it impossible to talk. We asked to sit inside, which was a challenge since we were a party of 6 and they had reserved an area close to the bar! No one told us that there is a band on Tuesday's and Thursday's when we made... More

When it opened many years ago, the food here was excellent t but my recent visits have found it very tired. The menu lacks variety and the meat is always tough. Even the French fries are disappointing. Bethesda deserves much better at these prices

We went to celebrate a birthday for grandma. The 2 and 1\2 year old needed a place she could be included, comfortable and have a food she liked. Mon Ami had it. The frites are superb. The steaks, well they beat what I had a week earlier at New York Prime in Boca. The birthday dessert was great. Our waiter... More

The ambience, inside and outside, is nice. The bread and wine is ok. All the other food varies from inedible to just bad. Amazed this place persists in competitive Bethesda. And it's pricey!

I absolutely love this place. The location is pretty convenient and the atmosphere is romantic for a date or meeting friends. I had the Gorgonzola steak and frites and a glass of wine. It was a fabulous diner and the service was good. I definitely recommend this place. Is one of my favorites restaurants in Bethesda.

It was a very good experience. I had crab cake in a delicious sauce with bowl of cooked spinach and a wonderful glass of wine Bordeaux Superior, dessert was raspberry tart with vanilla ice cream and double expresso. My husband had hanger steak with potatoes and glass of Champagne, dessert was creme brûlée with a double expresso. Total $120 including... More

The location: In the middle of the "new" Bethesda, it is within walking distance to parking lots, and there may even be street parking. The Restaurant: Similar in styling to other Mon Amis that I've visited, it is just bright enough to be friendly, just dark enough to feel special. There is also a lot of patio seating, so if...

I had beef, Rockefort the meat was very good but the side was french fries which degrades the excellent taste of the meat and its sauce. The patio in summer is excellent. A little bit pricey for a fries dish.
