Mom Ami Gabi (MAG) has been a Bethesda favorite for several years now. It's location (across from a bookstore and next to a movie theater) is hard to beat. Food is reliably well done, although not outstanding, and service is fairly fast. Prices are decent. To my taste, MAG is slightly too pretentious--some more finger food options, beer on tap,...

We went here with our cousin. The service was excellent. We ate salmon with lentils it was delicious! The desert was creme brûlé so fantastic!!

Reminds me of Paris or New Orleans French Quarter. I've only had their salads (I'm a vegetarian) but everyone I know says the food is good. Very popular, so make reservations for lunch or dinner. Valet parking available.

Mon Ami is like stepping into a Paris restaurant with its decor and food. As you come in there is a bar with a few tables and then you go into a larger dining room. We all had the Dover sole meunière. Excellent! I had a delicious Caesar salad. The service was very good. I will come again.

We love this place - it has become very very popular - it hard to get in on a Friday or Saturday night. Great Service; great food; great wine selection - wonderful place especially considering its a chain

We have been dining at Mon Ami Gabi for many years and have always enjoyed everything we ordered. However, recently the quality of the food has been spotty. The bread, the profiteroles, and the onion soup are still terrific. The trout almondine has no flavor. The frisee salad has been changed to have almost no frisee and mostly thinly grated... More

This is a very popular French restaurant in Bethesda. I have been there a number of times over the years but I think the food is just ok and expensive for the quality. I would not recommend it.

Nice restaurant atmosphere with wonderful bread provided by attentive table staff. However, the server took 40 minutes to take our order and never came back to ask anyone if they were enjoying their meals. One member of our table alerted the host that we had not been able to place our orders. Still took another 10 minutes. Had the crab... More
