Excellent as always! Steak Frites Bordelaise, tomato, red onion and feta salad. The food is consistently good! I’ve been coming here for years and I’m never disappointed. They have adjusted well to all of the necessary changes during Covid-29. 5 stars all the way!

Mon Ami Gabi is now offering outdoor dining. The menu is more limited than in the past. Prices have increased considerably and it is no longer a good value.

This was our first outing to a restaurant since COVID. We ate outside and since they closed part of Woodmont Ave., it was very relaxing as we could watch people walking by. There were no menus and we ordered off the online menu. Food was delicious (Steak au Poivre!), service was stellar and was an overall fabulous dinner. Then we strolled over to Jeni's Ice Cream for dessert. Yum!

Spacing was nicely done felt safe & comfortable. Went back to my favorites- gazpacho, escargot & steak au poivre. All were great as before the closure. French martini was the best. Chocolate mousse was okay nothing special. Overall a satisfying my first out of home meal.

Never disappoints! Have been going here for years, and my latest experience, yesterday, was just as good. This is admirable because so many restaurants seem great for awhile and then start to deteriorate. Love the food, especially the mussels and french bread. Wonderful staff. Highly recommend.

I used to love the food here but the last time I went the food and appetizer were literally ready within 3 minutes of us ordering, before our drinks even hit the table. It was such a disappointing experience. Obviously the food was already prepared and put under heat lamps. The waiter was good but the hostess couldn’t even offer a “hello” upon our arrival. I will not be returning.

Our first visit to a restaurant in more than 3 months was a great experience. We started with wine and mussels under an umbrella on the sidewalk cafe and when the skies opened up, our waiter, Federico, hustled us inside and got us seated immediately. The steak frites, mussels, profiteroles and Sancerre were just what the doctor ordered. Couldnt be more pleased with the food and service. Thanks for taking such good care of us, Federico!

Very disorganized during the COVID ph2 reopening. Website made it seem as though we were reserving an outdoor patio table, but on arrival inside was only available which we declined for obvious reasons and had to find somewhere else to eat.

How do you discontinue béarnaise in a French Resturant? Bad move, steak frites is not the same with out it. And a 4% service fee come on. Increase your prices if you must but no service fee.

Some bad Decisions and will cost me returning.

Father’s Day lunch. Outdoor tables were covered with big, red umbrellas to protect from occasional raindrops. Excellent server very detail oriented and friendly. Steaks Were prepared just as we like them and the French frites
were hot and crispy!

Service was slow. Had to ask 3 times for bread that was ordered with entrees. I was told the mussels were large. Turned out the shells were large but the mussels were small.

GREGORY SMITH! I will always remember that name. Wonderful service. He was engaging, prompt and professional. Because of COVID we had to eat outside. We are all getting used to the new normal, yet it was not the new normal it felt the same. Dinner with a good friend I had not seen in months. I actually hugged her tight. It was a beautiful moment and end to a stressful few months.

Mon Ami Gabi was fully prepared for the times. The outdoor tables were distanced from one another. The food was excellent as was the service. Open Table was a big problem, but the restaurant more than made up for any lapses in Open Table's deficiencies.

Food, service, outdoor ambiance were all wonderful. Only issue was our 9 o'clock reservation was accepted and confirmed and when we arrived we were told kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. We managed, but a 9 o'clock reservation should never have been accepted.

No lunch menu on weekend so price for lunch is a little high. We settled for cheese burgers which were OK but overpriced as are most if not all Bethesda burgers. A side of garlic spinach was tasty but not exactly a culinary challenge. Mostly an enjoyable experience eating outside except for a family at the next table that had a bit of a problem keeping one of their children's noise level down. Fortunately, once the child's food arrived the Db level subsided. The service was excellent from a very courteous and capable waiter. The wine by the glass was actually not bad for the price. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience; you have to take what you can get when dining out in Bethesda, it's always a balancing act between quality and cost.

Was very happy to try out the Patio seating at Mon Ami Gabi. Food was great. The street has been closed off for additional seating, making it feel like sitting down in Europe. Enjoyed the experience will be back

We were so excited that the restaurant and outdoor seating was available for us to celebrate our 20 year Annie when we could’ve travel to France. The food was excellent. Due to COVID, we sat outside but we’re fortunate to be under the awning against the building. A thunderstorm came through and we were protected while some under the tables with regular umbrellas were not as lucky.

The food was delicious. The outside patio was loud only because construction was going on nearby. Otherwise, our lunch was enjoyable.
