Mon Ami Gabi - Reston
Please Note: Reservations are taken for indoor seating only. Outdoor seating is first-come/first-served.
Another terrific experience. The Prime Steak Sandwich and Caesar Salad were excellent.
Our waiter was excellent! The food was delicious! But the noise level really loud!
Food was pretty good although nothing spectacular. And our waiter was a bit abrupt and not very friendly. We did enjoy the outdoor seating.
We had a most delicious and enjoyable time at Mon Ami Gabi. The Bastille Day specials were delicious and our service was impeccable. Such a great selection of food and drinks.
Good menu with their classic staples, steak frites is their classic offering
The fries on the steak frites were over cooked and dry, the steaks were slathered with either the steak Oliver sauce or the classic sauce instead of being on the side.
Our waiter Nathan was excellent. Quiche and trout were delicious but my sister and I were so disappointed in the French bread loaf. We were told it is a different recipe. Please go back to the original one. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience. We even were given a complimentary birthday dessert!
The gazpacho was sweet. Having lived in Spain for 4 1/2 years, we know that gazpacho is NOT sweet. The pate and filet medallions were OK. The gin martini was VERY mediocre and my wife's French martini was knocked over by a server but the restaurant did replace it. BIG complaint. We went on Saturday and today (Tuesday) the bill is still "pending" on my credit card AND the "pending" bill is not correct. Fortunately, I kept the receipt so if it is not reconciled correctly I will have to make an unwanted trip to Moon Ami Gabi to have it corrected.
Great happy hour food and good value drinks
Food was good, not outstanding.
Service was borderline - coffee was cold (they replaced it when we asked. The wait staff was OK, but clearly wasn't paying attention to each table.
Mon Ami Gabi is that place that is always good, has staff who are always pleasant and professional, and has an atmosphere of a neighborhood place (unless you go during happy hour and sit near the bar...then it's too noisy and no fun at all). The gazpacho was terrific!
Perfect. Outdoor seating on a summer evening. Excellent food - escargot and trout were delicious - service, and ambiance.
Wonderful, friendly service and great food as always. This restaurant never fails to impress.
Great Sunday brunch!
We had a wonderful brunch at Mon Ami Gabi! The food was delicious and the service was attentive.
We felt rushed through the meal. Our main course was delivered as we had barely started the appetizers.
We sat outside and enjoyed people watching while eating. The meal started with a loaf of warm baguette which was a nice touch. The steak and frites are the specialty and did not disappoint. Our server was very attentive even though we were out on the patio (not always the case in RTC). The food isn't cheap, but still worth the price of admission. Will definitely return.
Gabi is in the league of its own. 1789 is the only other good restaurant in DC area. Everything else is pretty much Taco Bell.
Met friends and had a wonderful meal and dessert using the express lunch. Staff was outstanding!
Outstanding service and food as usual
From the time we stepped in the service was great! Food was also wonderful!
Corporate Mon Ami Gabi screwed up changing to the inferior "French Bread" now served compared with the excellent loaf of French Bread this MAG formerly served. Bring back the real French Bread loaf...PLEASE!!!
My omelette was not a creamy rolled French omelette as expected. The first one was rubbery and more like an egg pancake. The second replacement was still not a creamy like a traditional French omelette should be, but more like a country omelette. The waiter removed it from the check which was very nice but I would have really enjoyed a traditional French omelette.
Lovely food. Lovely service. Brunch is consistently good. Will return!
We sat outside on a beautiful summer evening and felt like we were in Paris. Baked goat cheese appetizer was superb!
Food was excellent. Service was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Server only came to our table twice the whole time we were there but was consistant at surrounding tables
We had a wonderful time food was excellent and service was attentive.
We thought the meals were expensive for the dinners that were offered. One party's steak frites was OK to start, but then became un-edible half way through the portion. Vegetables were indifferent, but the mac and cheese was good (sot of like Annies). The blueberry dessert was very good. The service was OK through to ordering food, but was lackluster toward the end of the meal.
Food was delicious and we all walk away content with full bellies every time. Since it was Father’s Day, we were given a complimentary brownie to our dad which was amazing.
Great, consistent restaurant with good food and a helpful waitstaff. Would feel comfortable recommending it to anyone.
Excellent food and service for Fathers Day Brunch! Our waiter was attentive and helpful, guiding our choices. My picky husband and son were completely satisfied with eggs benedict and steak frites. The andouille sausage on my benedict was spicy and delicious. We finished with deserts - chocolate mousse was a clear hit with my son, while my husband and I shared the blueberry bread cobbler. The visit reminded me of how much I enjoy Mon Ami Gabi and made me want to visit more frequently. My only concern was the noise level. It would have been more relaxing if the noise level could be reduced by a few notches.
Father’s Day breakfast.
Had an issue with eggs Benedict. Over poached. They were hard boiled.
Not just my plate, on another member of my party’s plate. She sent hers back and got new ones which one was over cooked and the other was undercook. I sent mine back and refused for another order. Didn’t want people at the table to wait and have their food get cold while I waited. So I sat there starving on Father’s Day.
We used to like coming here because you never behaved like a chain restaurant. Evidently, things have changed. We won’t be back.
It was OK, the food was very good and the service we could tell was trying very hard, but the ambient noise in the place is just rough. It gets so loud inside!
Service was spotty and food which is normally excellent (esp steak frites and mussels) was not up to standards this time . The steak in particular was tough although cooked to the right temp. An off nite I’m hoping or else something has changed with the kitchen - hoping the former. I kept the food quality rating at a four but that might have been a stretch this time around.
Enjoyed outdoor seating! Delicious!
What a special evening celebrating our 32nd anniversary. Our server brought two glasses of champagne for a toast. Thank you.
