Mon Ami Gabi - Reston
Celebrating 34th anniversary of our first date
Food was okay, but not the quality of previous visits.
We enjoy dining at Mon Ami Reston as a family. We decided to take our friends Saturday evening. I made a reservation, but due to a thunderstorm that knocked out traffic lights, we were exactly 10 minutes late. Despite having a reservation, we were seated about 15 minutes after our arrival. The server did not look interested in doing her job, she was not friendly nor attentive. We ordered steaks cooked medium but they were well done. It was not a great experience with friends to say the least.
Eventhough we reserved and put request, our waiter really wasn't enthusiastic . We have been there before. We have to ask for things that normally comes with service like bread, spoon, source , plate and etc... I asked for red wine with my main meal, I have to ask another server to find my waiter to bring my win and by than I almost done with my food!!
It's just one case we had better waiter before.
Great service and bustling atmosphere of good food and people enjoy the experience. Escargot is amazing and the baguettes are delicious. Mussels a little over cooked, but great flavor. The service is attentive but not intrusive. Our server was patient and professional, as they always are. Can’t wait to go back.
Wonder experience! Enjoyed the food, like always & took advantage of the half price wine bottle!
One thing it took too long for seating out on the patio for 5. We had to wait 30 mins longer
I returned to Mon Ami Gabi after a not-so-good visit with some friends. The manager had read my comments and invited me to return. I went there for Sunday brunch this weekend with family and the food and service was what I was used to receiving here. Friendly service, good brunch options and a very nice chat with the general manager. He even did something really nice for my brother which was very much appreciated. Class act by the manager Joseph. Prices are reasonable. The only thing I didnt like and I know this will get me some eye-rolls, but we sat outside. I have been in healthcare for more than 30 years.....seeing a glass upside down on a table where I saw birds sitting on tables made me not want to drink any water out of that glass. Sorry! Ha...I know, I know, thats better than having something go into a glass that wasn't upside down on the table. Thats just me. So..I am back to Mon Ami Gabi being one of my go-to-places. Their steak frites with bernaise are awesome!!! And the profiteroles....sooo yummy!
We've been to other restaurants from the chain and always enjoyed the food and service. At Reston the service was not stellar, one of the dishes was not the quality expected and it was replaced. then the bill had mistakes and needed to be corrected. Not a big deal but we shouldn't have to call and wait twice to get things fixed.
This was our first time going and we had high hopes for a nice anniversary meal. Our waitress was bad, received dirty glasses twice and our soup came out after our steak which indicates the order was probably. All of that could’ve been overlooked if that food had actually tastes good. It did not. We will not be returning or recommending this place.
The red snapper, the Fresh fish of the day was excellent!
Wonderful service, excellent table outside with very good weather, and as always, wonderful dining, mussels and steak frites up to their usual quality.
As always, consistently excellent level of service and food.
One of our favorite restaurants in Reston - delicious food, friendly service and amazing atmosphere any time of the year! Join their customer loyalty program to get extra perks and promotions. Great for any occasion: weekday HH, business lunch or dinner, or family meals. Best Sunday brunch in town! Our family lives MAG!
Always wonderful. One of our favorite restaurants in the area.
Great food and service. We wanted a long slow dinner. Our waiter accommodated us and in no way rushedus.
Just a nice Sunday, Summer evening out with the family. Natalie and team provided great service. Food and drink were great as always.
We’ll be back soon!
Hanger steak was terrific - well flavored and gazpacho so light and refreshing. Best part of the evening was server Bobby. He was attentive, pleasant and professional and didn’t miss a beat! Was just a great experience - we will def be back!
Great dinner again at the Reston location. Fantastic fresh salad, and an incredible ribeye steak. Fresh berries for dessert kept our meal
Ordered medium well steak and it was past well-done. Server wasn’t engaged with the table at all
Everything was outstanding. Very knowledgeable staff. Paired the perfect wine with our perfect meal selection.
food was very nice. Service was disappointing. Took forever to get our drinks - we had to ask about the order and our server disappeared after our food was delivered.
Quick service on a late dinner....great food!
Our waiter was amazing which made the dinner!
Excellent French sidewalk cafe atmosphere with delicious food. Steak tartare was available at lunch though not on the menu. It was a birthday celebration, and they brought a profitrole with a candle. Very nice.
The overall experience didn’t meet our expectations. The french onion soup and escargot were mediocre. The chicken and mushroom crepe and profiterole were both pretty good. Still debating if we would return for a second try knowing there are many other restaurants out there to try.
We enjoyed the food and the ambiance very much. The waiter was very attentive.
The place is really nice and servers are great, but the food is very expensive and low quality.
Great service, especially for a busy Friday night. Outstanding food and great, lively atmosphere. Excellent overall experience as usual!
Laura (manager) and Muhammad were great. It's the little things that mean the most...they were aware of the little things.
I go there on a regular basis. I'm not a fan of the removal of the country-style pate...
Food is great, service is impeccable, I prefer to go there during the Fall or Winter, as the noise level makes it difficult to have a conversation (and it was too hot to stay outside).
Great service, food and drinks for a family get-together with people all ages
Probably one of the best meals ever, everything was perfect from the service, the mussels, the frisée salad and the ribeye steak. Our waitress even brought me a “healthy” dessert to celebrate my birthday ( after we turned down fries repeataly.
Picked the restaurant as we love the steak frites. Food did not disappoint. Fun Friday atmosphere. Kitchen and service was very slow.
Good meal. Great service! Muhammad was awesome!
Yes, but..... Worst bouillabasse ever! Who would put salmon, potatoes, & carrots instead of cod, ect into Bouillabasse?? No Spoon? Had to hunt down a waitress to obtain a Spoon..... Stick with the excellent baked Goat Cheese and Trout Almondine (BUT you might have to request extra Almondine Sauce.....) Ask for a table with the "Rattan Chairs" to avoid the hard, hot vinyl chairs.
Food is always good here, but the service is always spotty every time I visit. This time the waiter took my husband's drink order, but didn't ask anyone else at the table what they wanted. Finally we told him we were ready to order our drinks. He took our order, and brought two of three drinks, but I had to ask him after another 10 to 15 minutes where my drink was. I could see the bar from where we were sitting so there would have been plenty of time to make my drink, I just don't think he placed the drink order with the bar. Food was not hot when it came out, but only warm. They should put more hollandaise on their eggs benedict.
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.
