Steak & Frites
butcher's cut, bordeaux butter
Mini Onion Soup au Gratin
Getting together with friends or a date is awesome.
Superb food served by Steve, a highly skilled and professional waiter. Mon ami Gabi is one of our all time favorite restaurants. If you haven’t eaten there, give it a try; you’ll be glad you did.
Everything was lovely, the waitstaff were very attentive and friendly. It was a bit loud, but not obnoxiously so.
The duck confit was excellent. Escargots burgogne were tender and fresh (i.e., not oily). Frites were very good, crisp with a tender inside. Truite almondine was a bit underseasoned. Steak classique and steak au poivre were done well. Overall a good experience.
Steak was so good it melted in my mouth!
Anniversary dinner and so happy to have an outside dining experience right now. Our server went out of her way to make us feel special!
Good food and very tasty. Service was a little slow but very friendly.
waiting more than 40 minutes and no one come to check to us, food came but forgot my soup, then forgot my spoon,..... food was good, but service need to be improved.
The best cocktails I'm town! This place can make some mean martini's and the food is just fantastic, love this place
Fantastic service and wonderful food. Our table all had steaks and frites. The steaks were cooked just like we ordered and were so flavorful (and hot.) The frites were outstanding! We'll be back.
Incredible steak frites.
Overall our visit was disappointing. While the salad was good, soup was cold. Fish was good, side items were lukewarm. The filet medalionms were excellent, but the frites were awful. The firites were of McDonalds quality cut and overly brined. Service was marginal. The entree arrived and the salad plate had not been cleared. The server that brought the entree did not seem to know what to do with the salad plate.
Wonderful place for brunch and lunch; a local favorite visited often.
I had the gabitini- great martini! Steak for dinner and omg best steak I’ve ever had in a restaurant! The waiter was super nice and made great recommendations. Can’t wait to return!
Great time. Good food. Wait service was excellent.
Disappointed at lack of real vegetarian options on menu. Effectively salad was only option. No vegetarian specific dish offered for entree. All fish, chicken or beef.
This is a great bistro in a charming location with outdoor seating on a plaza, but the food is not always top rate. Good service and ambiance make it worthwhile.
Delicious brunch. Our server came to the table and took drink order than disappeared for a long time. We had to ask the manager to send us a waiter to take our order. Food came and was very good. Our waitress showed up after food was delivered with our drink order. We had already received drinks from the waiter who took our order.
nice seemed like the waiters were fitting over the table.. unprofessional
The food was pretty good but the service was terrible. The host seated us at a dirty table on the patio and brushed food off the table onto the chair I was supposed to sit in. We sat there for a few minutes before someone showed up to clean the table. Our first waiter was not bad but at some point she said she was getting my friend a steak knife and we never saw her again. Another waiter said he would bring our dessert menu but never came back. We eventually found another waiter and asked for the check, and he brought the dessert menu.
We had to wait 20 mins to have someone wait on us at our table. People coming after us got waited on first. The place was very empty. Then the butter was contaminated. Ugh
Disappointing. You try to support your local restaurants : you would think they would make it a wonderful experience. It was disappointing.
Bread is too hard & chewy. I don't know why being charged for bread?
Food and service are good although sometimes they act like they are doing you a personal favor getting you some bread and butter. Which you now pay for so it’s not a favor. Prices seem to have crept higher but that seems to be going around. Food is good but sometimes I with their menu had a little more choice. Outdoor seating great in any weather.
Had a great early dinner! Will be back
Great night out. Great service, food, cocktails and atmosphere. Hostess, wait staff and Managers were all friendly and helpful. We’ll definitely be back!
Formerly solid restaurant now disappointing post COVID
Great food and service as always.
Love it always. My favorite place!!
Lovely to sit outside under the fans and eat delicious food
Very nice food, as usual.
Service was less than par. Salmon was over cooked when the temperature was requested med rare.
We went there tonight to celebrate my father’s Birthday. We really liked the ambiance, but the quality of food and the service were really bad. We ordered a burger, steak and some seafood. Overall the quality of seafood was acceptable, but the burger and the steak were really bad. The burger came burnet outside and completely rare inside, even though we asked for a medium-we’ll burger. We had to wait for 15 minutes for our server to come and check our table to change the burger. Then we waited for another 20 minutes for the new burger. That being said, one guest at the table had to wait for about 40 minutes, for the burger, while everyone else was working with their food. The steak came super cold and chewy, and not the even close to the quality of steak that you would expect from a good restaurant. Overall we did not enjoy our visit, and we will not come back again for sure.
Overall, the food was good but way over priced. The last time we were there, the price for a steak was $19.99 now it's over $28.00. The biggest disappointment was the fries served with the steak. The potato fries used to be shoestring and now they are servicing regular fries. Not as crispy and not as good. Also, they used to give you free bread, now you have to pay for it. The value for the meal is not what it used to be.
It’s tough to find restaraunt employees now. My service expectations reflect this fact. 45 minutes after sitting we got our soup and salad. Both literally takes a minute to prepare. Apparently the kitchen lost our “food ticket.” This is not a lack of employee problem but a server and kitchen staff process issue.
Then the kitchen rushed the entrees. 1/3 of the mussels we ordered had not opened which is because they were undercooked. The kitchen staff has to look at the food before it leaves the kitchen.
The staff apologized and adjusted the bill. That was appreciated. Much better if you screwup, don’t compound it.
We were disappointed in the Brie crepes as it did not indicate that they were literally smothered in sauce. The other crepes were also not terribly hot. Overall though, a good meal and a beautiful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Excellent as always. The manager works his tail off to make sure all guests are tended to and satisfied.
Food is delicious and service spot on !
This used to be one of favorite restaurants during the last 10 years in Reston —but oh my, has the quality gone down! The service was very poor. The wait staff meant well- but seemed very amateur on how to serve and attend a table. Dirty plates were left on the table as we began a new course. The food was not good. The halibut was very expensive and very dry. We will not be returning here
Nice food, nice service and overall good time.
The food was decent but the beef Wellington could have used more seasoning. The fact that it was a specialty meal made it more disappointing that it wasn’t as flavorful as expected. I do recommend the escargot!
