I ordered the small - they were smaller than my pinky Nail - should not have been served-
Fries are now a separate up charge . Bread is now an additional charge of $1.95. Everything about
Mon Ami Gabi is disappointing and sad— but the mussels were the most sad. I had loved this restaurant and probably will not return— I guess another loss due to Covid. But, restaurants that do make it- is because of continued good food and fair price— this restaurant does not offer either.

Interesting menu but food is less than spectacular. While my companion enjoyed his lunch quiche, my steak au poivre was beaten to a thin pulp which was disguised by a decent pepper sauce. Fries yummy, wine not so yummy. Overall, ok but certainly far from really good French food.

Salmon with smashed peas was delish as was the gazpacho. The white wine did not taste like a Sauvignon Blanc - more like a Chardonnay.

There was nothing special to comment on, in either direction. The baked goat cheese with baguette was interesting. The frites with the steak were luke warm and resembled what is left at the bottom of the serving dish.

Our waiter, Nathan, was helpful.

I ordered a filet and so did my friend. Both of us felt it was a very tough fillet, not enjoyable. Also the fries were small pieces, not a good food presentation at all. We both walked out unimpressed and disappointed with our meal. This was not our first time going there, but we were not thrilled with the food experience.

The wait staff was fantastic, they are the only reason for the stars on this review.

However, the food leaves much to be desired. Texas Roadhouse would kill this place in a head to head competition... and it’s half the price. Pretty interesting if you ask me. Mon Ami Gabi (Reston) is overhyped and draws positive reviews mostly from overpricing their food and delivering on a well thought out ambiance. The steak is tough.. and in the case of the bone in ribeye; overpowered by peppercorn. Although, it does a nice job of hiding a subpar cut of meat. The filet mignon with Bordeaux butter sounds amazing but it misses the mark. I wanted to like this place but the overall execution of their food is lacking. I do not think this is a one-off thing either... there is just so much missing on a tradecraft level that it’s not like I hit it on a bad night.

—Don’t take my word for it, try it yourself!

The Server was horrible she had no knowledge of anything about the menu or what was available and was very rude and unprofessional and was using profanity in her responses of not knowing the menu, then was charged some surcharge that is illegal against county of fairfax procedures for food establishments that had been brought to their attention today and is currently under investigation with them. I have always loved this place and the food and the service has always been amazing this experience was not expected at all.

Went with friends and ate outside to social distance. Meal was excellent as always.
Our waiter wasn’t their best. He just wasn’t sensitive to the guests in regard to timing of the courses.
The manager on duty was very slow in providing just a little ice from the bar, so that we could take home leftover fish for a 1 hour drive.
You could tell he just didn’t want to help. Disappointing since it wasn’t that busy on Thursday evening.

We love Mon Ami Gabi restaurant, and keep going there. Except for a few minor problems with the service during the earlier visits, we always had a good meal and time there. This time everything was very good, including the service. I wish the Nutty Russian drink would come back on the menu too. It was really good!

First time there: atmosphere did not feel special in any way - just so so .
French Onion soup was sweet - did not realize that when we ordered. No description of using sweet onions.

Trout - greasy.

Dessert was excellent - chocolate brownie

wont be back

Our waiter was awesome and also there was a lovely person who cleaned tables who allowed us to move out of the sun to another table in the shade. And the server had a kir made for me that wasn’t on menu and at a great price when I didn’t ask beforehand. I thought the food prices were high. Wine was great and priced right for the most part. I appreciated the Covid precautions.
