This was my s/o's favorite restaurant so we came here on her birthday. It took over 30 minutes to get an order in and was sitting around waiting for our waitress to come take our order. She got our drinks initially wrong and also spilled my drink all over when I received my food (However, she did get me a new glass). I tried multiple times to try and talk to her discretely to have something special done for the birthday but she was "too busy" and so I had to ask in front of her when the dessert menu came. The receipt was also printed wrong charging us more than $30 of what we actually had which had to be fixed. I was extremely shocked by the service coming here, the food however was great.
One of our frequent/weekly dining choices in Reston! Foods are always delicious & delightful with attentive services! Strongly Recommend It!

Although I have dined here many times this evening was a disaster. Moving to Chicago I came back to town to finish last few items of business before leaving for good. On my last night I thought I would treat myself to a pleasant goodbye. I was treated like the relative you did not ever want to see again.
I was put in a table in the middle of traffic with which I was continually bumped by both customers and staff. My soup was only slightly hot and my steak raw. Although I sent the steak back, it came back but it was overdone on the outside and passable in the inside. I know I could have complained but I came there to relax and not battle over dinner.
Like I said, my wife and I have frequented this restaurant, as well as other locations by this parent company (Big Bowl and others) and have usually been pleased. Since I will now be living in Chicago, the home of this company I hope to see a better evening.
I requested a dessert with a candle for my best friend, celebrating a BIG birthday. The hostess said happy birthday when we entered. The waiter was nice but clueless. I ordered a dessert. He brought the dessert without a candle. I told him about the birthday.. he still did nothing. We waited and waited for something. We got nothing. Embarrassing and upsetting.
Seated promptly, server was courteous and attentive. Food was excellent.
Mon Ami Gabi is one of my favorite restaurants. Don't be afraid of the parking garage situation. It's well worth it to have a meal at this fabulous restaurants. It's my go-to place for meeting friends for lunch as their daily lunch special is a great value, and the food is absolutely delicious.
Food was good, service was bad. After an hour and food order was not taken and had to ask manager to get order taken. Table next to us turned over 4 times before we were served and got check. Had to rush to pick up people at airport at 9:15 after arriving for 6:00 appointment.
Went to Mon Ami for a little birthday celebration and the staff was wonderful! They even brought out a special dessert with "Happy Birthday". written on the plate. They made it a very special night for the birthday boy! Thanks Mon Ami!
Good food, excellent wine, and the waitress was truly exceptional. My dining companion wa delayed because of rain, but the staff seated me right away. I appreciated having a glass of wine and some very good bread while waiting.
Lovely evening and great food!
Very poor service this time
Celebrating the homecoming for my boyfriend who has been deployed overseas for the last year!
We barely saw the waiter. I couldn’t flag him down for a second glass of wine. My wife’s mashed potatoes were cool and her steak had a bitter flavor. The sauce on my hanger steak was overdone, watery and flavorless.
Update: I was very happy that Joseph from Mon Ami contacted me directly after my review and apologized for our experience. My wife and I look forward to trying another meal at Mon Ami.
Mon Ami is our family and friend “go-to” restaurant and the meal and service never fails our expectations. Would recommend to anyone.
One of our all time favorite restaurants. We are never disappointed!
Wonderful dinner for two
The service and food was very good.
Several times have brought professional colleagues. Always a great meal.
Everything was great! Had a wonderful time
Great ribeye steak, sauce, and salmon tartare. After dinner, stretch your legs by walking in Reston. Great if you are dressed up and want a nice meal without breaking the bank.
It's been a few months since we've gone to any Mon Ami Gabi. The food was amazing but we noticed the portion sizes were much smaller. The food was great, regardless. The service was good, not as great as it normally is, but we went during a busy Friday night. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves.
Expensive and not great quality. Very limited menu. I had Gabi’s Fish and Frites which was awful. Fries were cold and soggy! Bread was the best part!
We always feel so welcome here. The staff is very nice, knowledgeable and ready to help if there is anything specific you need. The food is prepared expertly and always quite tasty. This is one of our favorite spots. My husband particularly appreciates the wonderful wines that pair so nicely with his meals.
The food wasn’t as good as usual. The pate was a bit bland; the oysters were tasteless. But the steak and the salmon tartare were superb.
Salad included interesting vegetables beyond the norm which made the salad very good. Deserts were unique also.
Service and ambiance were very good. However, we had ordered filets and both were lacking. Mine was way underdone and I had to send it back. My wife's was not melt in your mouth like it was the last time we were here. Attentive staff took care of me efficiently and apologized. My wife ate hers but did not let her disappointment be known until later. It was a pleasant evening, but we'll have to wait awhile before returning. The excellent service was what salvaged the rating, otherwise it would have been an overall 2.
We were excited about the daily special, beef Wellington, but even though we had an early dinner reservation, they ran out after only 10 orders. So then we ordered other steaks off the menu and all the sides came out cold, and the steaks were not cooked to the temperature anyone ordered. It all had to be redone.
Overall a great experience. I think the waiter and the menu could either or both do a better job of explaining what is on the menu. Specials were not on the menu -- but often could be printed to be easier to review. Drinks were okay, but not 5 star -- perhaps 3. Overall a good experience and I'd go again, but my feeling was that it was 1 star below Morton's or DC Prime which I'd recommend above Mon Ami Gabi.
Love the steak frites
Excellent service from start to finish. We were placed in a cozy, quiet corner booth which was very nice. The server Billy was attentive, knowledgable, and polite. The duck confit, cocktails/wine, and bone in Ribeye were all fantastic. We will definitely be dining at the Reston location again soon!
Been a while since I've been to Mon Ami. Thought the food was good this time around, but honestly, a little disappointed. The $21 salmon and kale salad was a few leaves of lettuce, a couple of pecans and a small piece of fish. Not worth the price.
The food was delicious but, when you sit outside, the service isn’t as good as inside it appeared. Will definitely come back but, won’t sit outside again.
Busy Wednesday night dinner and it was crowded. Not as attentive service as times before perhaps because it was so busy. They ran out of my entree and the delay in telling me meant my companions got their food before me. Food was excellent though. Disappointing that you could not get happy hour specials at your table only in the bar. They used to have a bar cart come to your table as well and that didn't happen either. Will go again and hope the service is different.
Ask for Doug...the best waiter in Reston. The restaurant is always friendly and professional...couldn't ask for more.
Brunch with an old friend. Waiter was very accommodating and patient with our gabbing. Excellent salad with real anchovies on request and salmon eggs Benedict. Yum
Too much noise service was good no special occasion just Sunday brunch
We've been there numerous times and enjoy our meals.
Steve our waiter and the host and waitstaff were all very attentive, professional, and responsive. Unfortunately this time, the kitchen was a bit off - the rice pilaf was "crunchy" - ie undercooked, and the mussels were seriously oversalted.
I was really sorry to have to point it out to Steve, who immediately offered to serve something else (I had worked around the pilaf and so didn't need another entree and declined) - and both Steve and the host stopped by to apologize and compensate for the lapse in food quality.
The errors were things that the kitchen should not have missed - I have alot of sympathy for the waitstaff in situations like that. Steve and the host both told us that they had reported the issues back to the kitchen - and they did everything in their power to help make it right.
We will return... hopefully the kitchen mess up was a one time situation.
This location has gone down hill significantly. They didn’t know how to prepare Trout Almondine, a former favorite. They cut almonds in half and put them next to the sautéed trout.
The waiter told us the fish special was a Wild Caught, Hybrid Chilean Sea Bass. Hybrid & Wild Caught?
He couldn’t tell us anymore about it.
Wonderful food and great service! The craft cocktails where wonderful and the food was great!
Good restaurant in Reston. Service and food very good.
