“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Very good food. Crowded and noisy on a Fri night. Service was only average. A little pricy for what you get.

“We've been here twice, have no true complaints, but have no plans to return.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Hi, We went here about a year ago and the service was confused, and the food was well prepared with quality ingredients but of typical taste which was a surprise given the pricing. Our first review, on the table reservation site, was a 4 star with mention of the incorrect beer and side dishes being served on a busy weekend day. This resulted in a call from the management providing us with $75 in gift certificates which we used last night. The restaurant was doing a light business, typical for a Monday evening, and the service was very good. We ordered the higher priced dishes of rib and steak, and a vegetable side dish. The rib was good but cooked more like a Chinese dish, yes we have eaten the same thing many times in China, and the New York Strip though tender was less tasty than Golden Corral's buffet steak which we sometimes eat on trips to save time. The steak was of good quality but the taste was just mediocre. Perhaps French seasoning isn't our cup of tea but we just think this place is overrated.

“Very good Steak Frites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We recently dined at Mon Ami Gabi in the Bethesda Row area of Washington DC, with favorable results. The Steak Frites was good, however the fries were served somewhat luke warm. The steak and sauce was quite good. My wife had the Scallops, which were very flavorful. Overall, it was a good experience, but I would not rank it as high as is currently the case.

“Greatest Mussels Ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This weekend I ate at Mon Ami Gabi. The warm bread they bring you is super. It comes in a bag, as though you had just purchased warm out of the oven at the bakery!
I had the half order of mussels, and a side of frites. My husband had the salad and the onion soup. The mussels were definitely among the best I,have ever had! They were served in light green wine and herbal sauce. We thought that the onion soup and the French Fries (served in a cone shaped container) gave us a bit of indigestion. Our entrees, Scallops and Vegetables, and Vegetables Frisse were good, but I was disappointed in three bland onions that accompanied my other vegetables. Dessert was Strawberry Briand, with sour cream ice cream. It was delightfully refreshing!!
I went back two days later with a friend, and found the mussels as special as ever!!!
