The waiter forgot about us. And the menu had no seafood and that’s what we wanted.

We had a wonderful time at Mon Ami. We were able to do the HHR which was awesome and it felt like old times. So much fun and great to see our favorite bartenders and waiters.

Excellent meal and service. The restaurant was quiet due to social distancing and COVID-19 safety requirements. We had a lovely time, didn't feel rushed as we lingered over our meal and dessert.

Overall it was ok, which is disappointing because we LOVE Mon Ami Gabi. We know there are changes in service due to COVID, but it's just not the same anymore. Our server was sloppy, his shirt was hanging out of his pants and that grossed me out. There were limited options on appetizers, which is too bad because our favorite is the pate and it was not being served :(. I did not like my Croque Madame at all, it was cold. And was most disappointing is that I noted on our Open Table reservation that we were celebrating my husband's birthday, and there was nothing done like no candle (I did not expect singing) or writing Happy Birthday on his dessert (we ordered carrot cake, which was dry ...). I guess Mon Ami Gabi is longer our favorite restaurant., very sad.

This was a great, quiet, safely distanced outing for a birthday celebration during strange times. Our server was attentive, and everyone was polite and professional despite the unusual situation in which we find ourselves.

Dining as it should be, elegant but humble, and simple yet detailed precisely to allow diners to feel the leisure of 4 star dining. I cant speak better about the food. I will be celebrating here again soon

Went for Sunday brunch. Food was very good. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We will definitely go back again. My MIL has already requested to celebrate her next birthday there. Our table was distanced from others inside by a good amount (was too hot to eat outside). All staff wore masks. Some wore gloves, including all busing staff.

The server was polite but for some reason, he did not bring out one of our appetizers. The cocktails were delightful but the frog legs were nothing special. We ordered the roast chicken and it was so bad I couldn't finish it. The chicken was just so dry. The mashed potato and the mushrooms were pretty good, but nothing special. I was looking forward to the escargot, which never came out, and I was hoping the chicken could have been at least better than what I can cook at home. They did take good safety precautions for all its worth. I will try to find some other french restaurants in the future.

We’ve come here often for years. Over a decade. Meals are predictable, but good. But last night was so bad we may not go again. With COVID on, we are patient and grateful diners. It takes a lot to upset us, but Mon Ami Gabi managed to. French onion soup? Not cooked, watery, cheese white and soupy, not broiled. No baguette and a 4% COVID surcharge? The fish and chips? Raw cod with white panko that hadn’t been fried. The mussels had been boiled down to the size of a pea and still had their beards. Things you can see without having to try the food, though we did and just couldn’t eat them. We haven’t been going out lately, but it was my husband’s birthday, and the waitress knew it. Did she care that our food was inedible? Yep. She cared. She was angry. At us. Openly. The whole experience was beyond disappointing at a trusted, reliable restaurant and we will be thinking hard about this before heading back. Wish Willy had been around to talk to about this. Joann was certainly not helpful.

No music or ambiance. Eat your food and flip the table for the next guests. That was the vibe.

The service was very slow, food was extremely salty and no real flavor. We ordered a Sauvignon Blanc and got charged for a Sancerre ($20), we caught that cause we ordered one more glass of Sauvignon Blanc and again got charged for a Sancerre. They gave us dessert on the house ( so so). All in all We will not be coming back or recommending it.

We had 2 reservations and were lucky enough to get our two parties combined. But having the two tables combined we figured we would have more than 1 server but we only had one. This did result in a few mixups and the waiter looked overwhelmed and service was a bit slower than usual. Usually when we have larger parties go out which is often we would have more than 1 waiter.

This wasn't our first visit. They're coming back from the pandemic and well worth a visit. Many restaurants are not going to survive unless we support them.

This has been a neighborhood go-to for dinner since we moved to the area. Consistently good. It met our expectations. Brunch is a wholly different matter. My husband and I both ordered the Croque Monsieur expecting it to be delicious...this is a “French” restaurant. It was awful. Some sliced deli ham and Gruyere slapped between two pieces of white bread (think Wonderbread) toasted no. Lightly grilled hardly. Pale as driven snow. Topped with a fairly good sauce but it couldn’t make up for the other failures. And, why is everything served with fries? Some side fruit or a small salad would be much more appealing. We might return for dinner but NEVER again for brunch.

Had a lovely brunch outside on their patio. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. All staff wore masks and servers wore gloves. I appreciated the fact that one of my favorite places went the extra mile to care for their clients. To anyone reading this review please support this restaurant by dining with them. It’s a special place much like Reston. I’ll be back soon!
