They were very helpful to my large party & made sure the person in my party with severe allergies could safely eat!
We’ve been to the restaurant in Las Vegas and loved their breakfast, this is why we wanted to come for Easter brunch. We found the menu lacking and the food underwhelming. It definitely did not live up to our expectations.
Reserved for Easter Brunch with my wife and 2.5 year old son. Got seated at a nice corner booth, which helped contain our little one. The goat cheese burger we ordered was rare and leaving blood onto the plate, even though we ordered it medium. We also asked the server about the missing fries, which were part of the meal and he responded we did not order fries. He brought the fries, but we still had to ask one of the managers, who confirmed the burger included the fries. After returning he burger to the kitchen, we were brought one that was properly cooked.
We also ordered the salmon eggs Benedict, but these were not even lukewarm. Completely room temperature. By this time, we did not feel comfortable returning the second plate we ordered, so we just ate it as it came.
Quite the disappointing experience. I first at at Mon Ami nearly 13 years ago in Las Vegas and could not rave more about that experience. So much so, that I was thrilled to be eating there again for this occasion and shared my enthusiasm with my wife. The experience was below underwhelming and quite embarrassing after speaking so highly of the place. This experience brought me back to earth and, sorry to say, I am not sure I would venture to return.
Wonderful menu selection..something for everyone. Everything was temperature appropriate and cooked as requested. Attention from the server without being annoying and the pace made for a relaxed and enjoyable dinner.
We always can count on having a wonderful experience.
As usual, the food was great and we had a fabulous server.
I had dinner with three other people and everyone loved their meals. We shared 4 appetizers; the duck confit was tender and full of great flavors, the frisée,kale &warm bacon salad with poached egg is my favorite and always delicious, escargot with garlic herb butter filled the table with a great aroma and the house bread was just right to soak up all butter, the local tomatoes salad with feta was filled with flavor. Main courses of succulent rainbow trout, tender and tasty New York strip with house special frites that everyone enjoyed, and the Monk fish special with an amazing bean purée made everyone very happy! Topping off the night we shared a delicious creme brûlée, berry sorbet and the best of all the blueberry bread cobbler. The service was spot on, friendly,attentive and knowledgeable. High praise to everyone and looking forward to going back soon!
The hostess and waiter were outstanding.
The food was great as always and we had wonderful evening with friends. We will be back again soon
Great meal but pretty slow for their “express lunch” but server very lovely.
Great experience as always!
Great place for brunch with friends and the food was amazing!!
We recently celebrated a friend's 50th birthday and had a wonderful time. They allowed us to bring in a cake, created a fabulous presentation and ensured it was a special evening. Our waiter was fantastic and it made for a terrific celebration!
A wonderful evening with great food and drinks. The service was great!
one of our absolute favorite restaurants! been to the one in Vegas in the past but this was the first time we ate at one in the DC area and it was excellent as well. We had steak, monkfish, and lack of lamb and everyone thought theirs was excellent. and I'm still dreaming about the chocolate cake desert. Thanks for a fabulous meal!
Our server was a very kind person and friendly . The manger , I cannot remember but I think he was Turkish. He stopped by a few times and made sure we had everything thing we asked for. And he also tried to help the server . Great experience . Thanks
The food is always great 🙏🏻
It was my husband’s birthday. As always the food was amazing and the staff very kind.
We were very disappointed with our Mon Ami Gabi experience.
Service - Our waiter was very cold and unfriendly, and made several mistakes throughout the night. I generally like to get some feedback on what to order, what is good, etc., but good short, unhelpful responses. I will say that the busperson was very nice and cordial with us.
Food/drink - Food was ok. My wife got the salmon, and she found it bland and portions undercooked. I did enjoy my steak and the sauces, but nothing exceptional. Fries though - really good. I only got one drink, an old fashioned, and it was pretty bland. I did not order a second.
Value - overall, our experience was really thrown off by our waiter. We will not be dining at Mon Ami Gabi again.
Never a disappointment. Friends first visit was impressed with service, food and ambiance
Classic. Great service. Allowed us to take our time, with rushing us. Steak was delicious. My wife enjoyed the trout. Very enjoyable meal.
Got omelette Lorraine...not enough cheese or eggs, too much caramelized onions
The food was bland and uninspired, nothing special. Also inconsistent as of late. Higher prices with every menu change but the quality of food is diminished. The restaurant is getting old and dirty. Ladies bathroom is always a wreck - no one checks throughout the day. Purse hanger broken in the door for what seems like years. No maintenance or upkeep being done. Have been going to Gabi since opening. Now barely go twice a year as opposed to every week. This time was the last time. No more chances.
We always go back and are always happy to do that.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Reston.
This time the New York steak was not good and it was the priciest item on our order.
Expectations were not met this time
Good food, service could have been more attentive
Wonderful, as usual. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
Food was just ok service was terrible used to love the restaurant won't be going back
Thanks for asking wish I could have been more positive about experience.
Great service, great food. Our favorite restaurant.
The restaurant was nice and our waitress was kind and the owner was apologetic. However, we were served the wrong soup. They did realize it before we could let our waitress know and we had already tried it and realized it wasn’t what we ordered. In their defense, they were extremely busy that night, but our food took forever to come out and they came out to ask us what we ordered again. When the food did come out, it appeared to have been sitting as it was not hot but lukewarm. We didn’t even bother sending it back as we were already hungry. As far as the waitress and her tip, we tipped her because we felt it was a kitchen problem.
Initially we were seated at a round table for five; we were a party of four. The seats were far apart & the large table was not conducive to conversation. We requested to be moved to a smaller square table that was vacant near by. They were very accommodating and moved us quickly. The change made our evening so much more enjoyable and allowed us to really relax, chat and feel comfortable.
The food was prepared as ordered and delicious as always.
Nice night out with friends.
Great food! Everything was delicious from appetizer to dessert. Creative drinks to select from.
Fries were old
Always good French food. Being seated in the back near the window was perfect to allow us to talk. Waitress was outstanding and food was good as ever. Trout Almondine was good as ever and my colleagues both thought the scallops special was outstanding. Desert was great - we shared the vanilla bean creme brulee (good) and the salted caramel chocolate tart (amazing - go for it). A good experience as I've come to expect.
Outstanding service and the food was perfection! Very lovely evening.
Steak Frites very disappointing. Over cooked fries replaced cold soggy fries. Steak pre- marinated and texture was strange and tasted too salty. Won’t go back.
The server was very knowledgeable about our gluten free needs!
Excellent as usual. They provided a nice corner table for friends to talk. Good food, good ambience, good conversation.
It was excellent!!! Will attend brunch again soon!!
We had good service, nice food and a great wine. Overall no complaints.
