 Brasserie Monte Carlo
Brasserie Monte Carlo
If you are looking for a unique place to go for brunch, lunch, or dinner, Brasserie Monte Carlo is the place to go. Stepping into the restaurant, one can not help but notice the beautiful mural (designed by Dianne Hoppman) that takes up the whole right wall, and the rustic decor that helps add warmth to the room. Sonny Abraham owner/chef of Brasserie Monte Carlo has been in the restaurant business since 1985. Sonny has done a wonderful job of staffing his restaurant with only the best. He personally completed his culinary training in Lausanne, Switzerland and his matre d' worked at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC. It is truly a team effort at Brasserie Monte Carlo, at times you may even see Sonny waiting on a table to help his staff out, or helping in the kitchen or even providing wine service. Sonny's goal is to bring the taste of Washington's well known restaurants to downtown Bethesda but for a fraction of the cost maintaining quality, value and service.

"I'd be delighted to hear what went wrong on Saturday evening. My reservation was for 4 people at 7:30 PM. I've eaten at B.M.C several times and have brought guests there. This time I was embarrassed that I brought my daughter and husband there. Really 2 rolls for 4 people. That seems elementary to get that right (no butter either) and the fact that we had to ask 2 times for them. They should have been brought automatically. Also reaching in front of us and asking us to pass our plates. I'm sorry this is unacceptable. Not to mention the table snafu especially after I called to confirm that we had a table in front of a window.
This experience is not up to past experiences. The only saving grace was the food tasted good and arrived hot."
