I eat here frequently for dinner and it is always great. This brunch was terrible, crepe was burnt. Ordered juice it never came. Waiter could not be understood and was not helpful.

As usual, very good meal and dining experience. Only regret is the current lack of chocolate souffle as a dessert option that will hopefully return eventually.

Another good evening at Mon Ami Gabi. I like that they're taking advantage of outdoor dining for distancing - and that the wait staff was excellent. The food was great as usual.

We were celebrating our recent wedding. Service was subpar and slow. Soup we ordered was cold and did not taste good. Drinks took a long time to get to the table. Mussels were delicious. The skate entree and steak frites classique were subpar. Our entrees were delivered literally one minute after our appetizer. We were really underwhelmed by the experience.

Last Sat Nov 07 - My friend & I had an early dinner @ Mon Ami Abi in Reston.

We loved the French cuisine & the ambiance but the service truly was disappointing.

We had to ask 3 different waiters at least 2-3 times for everything otherwise we would just wait for awhile...simply- we get no service!

It was not that busy Sat. We sat outdoor. Anyhow- I would have given a 5 stars but I could only give a 3 to service! Chef deserves 5-STARS!!

Thank you!

I have been coming to Mon Ami for years and have always enjoyed my experience but this last visit I did. It. My server was not attentive at all. I had to request what the specials were and he really did not seem interested in assisting me. I ordered the filet with Bordeaux butter, one of my favorites and it wasn’t great. It seems as if management has changed as well but I hope this was a one time occurrence and not the new normal.

This is a great restaurant and they have been in business for years. The service was excellent. The food was very good although the menu is rather limited. The drinks were outstanding, made as order and definitely not diluted. Caesar salad and bone in ribeye were prepared to perfection.

We came for an anniversary dinner. We requested outdoor seating and all the waitstaff did their best . Food was nicely prepared and served. I realize that all of the outside schlepping is a lot more work than inside. We enjoy the escargot and get them whenever we come.

We sat in bar during happy hour and it felt much like old times other than it was less crowded. Love their happy hour bar food and we enjoyed the escargot, French onion soup and salad plus cocktails.

This is my favorite restaurant and have only had excellent service prior to this meal. I made our reservation for a special birthday dinner well in advance. We were held up in traffic and I called to let the restaurant know and they were very cool about it saying to take my time and be safe. He did not state that we would lose our reservation or have to be seated at a different table. When we arrived, they set us in the side of the restaurant which is usually used for private events. I am all about location location. Sitting the birthday girl in a side room and not in the main restaurant was extremely disappointing. The restaurant didn’t even look very full so I’m not sure why we were not seated in the main dining area especially since we were there for a celebration. Not one single person said Happy Birthday to me. I say this because I have been spending my birthday at this restaurant since 2010 and have always been greeted with a Happy Birthday and a birthday dessert on the house. We also celebrate many anniversaries and special events such as Mother’s Day at this place. On Saturday, the manager walked around and greeted guests and changed the tv station to a college football game but not once did he come to our table. Our niece was a GM of a sister location and when we’ve dined before, they have gone out of their way to greet us. Our waiter never asked to fill our drinks and we felt ignored most of the evening. Our meal was just so so this night which is also very disappointing because it is usually absolutely amazing. Overall, we were very underwhelmed with our dining experience.

My boyfriend and I had the best experience at Mon Ami Gabi! Our server, Johanna, was so kind, attentive, and just helped make our experience. Not to mention, the food was absolutely spectacular — as always! I also definitely felt safe dining inside with temperature checks about arrival and far distanced tables. 5/5 stars! We’ll definitely be back :)

We have been to Mon Ami Gabi many times before tonight. We go there each year to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Given the current environment we are all trying to navigate through, we were especially excited as we try to limit the amount of places we go. With that being said, we were underwhelmed to say the least.

To begin, when I had made this reservation, I had requested a specific table. When we arrived, I had noticed it was occupied. Ok, fine. It was a nice night so we opted to dine outside. Onto our server - completely and utterly disappointing. After he finally took our order, we had to wait for at least 30-40 minutes for a Caesar salad to come out. He passed by our table numerous times with not so much as a “let me go check on your salad.” Once our meals came out, thankfully they were everything we had expected (the food never disappoints). As we had finished up our meal, all we got was a casual passing by and “dessert?” Not even like a full stop to check in and see how our dinners were and then the offering of a dessert menu. Just super disappointing. If our server had paid just a bit more attention, we more than likely would have ordered another bottle of wine, dessert and would have tipped a bit better like we usually do. Hopefully our next experience is way better than what we had tonight.

We sat in an outside table that was comfortable and safe. The precautions taken for health protection are visible and very good. The waiter was attentive but the food took a while to arrive. Seemingly there was some confusion in the kitchen and things slowed down a lot, so the waiters were frustrated even if they tried hard to apologize, they were nervous and a bit erratic.

I've been dining at MAG-Reston for over 10 years, perhaps 2-3 times a year. I think it's a Covid-thing, but this particular evening just fell flat. It was the LEY chain's restaurant week. The quality of the hangar steak was okay, but not as good as in the past. Other items were quite good though. The service started as rushed then ended quite slowly and to us not as good as in the past, but again with restrictions, etc., these days it's hard to come down on restaurants trying to navigate the new [and hopefully shorter term] normal. The next time I try MAG, perhaps I'll give the brunch a try.

We went to this restaurant to take advantage of the special Restaurant week prices. The food was excellent and the service was equally good. Pricing was extremely good for the large volume of food ordered. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great ambiance and outdoor seating is readily available. All precautions were taken prior to entering the establishment by taking our temperature prior to entry. Great idea in today's day and age

The food was ok but not hot once it was served. We were outside which was nice because the weather was beautiful. This was the first time we’ve had dinner at Gabi. I prefer the lunch menu. Service very good. It’s quite expensive.

Formerly one of my favorite restaurants seemed tired! Food was “heated” rather than prepared, salad wilted. So sad to see it go down hill during the Covid reopening
