The special was a perfectly cooked halibut with hazlenuts, lentils and asparagus, very nice. Lots of outdoor shaded tables. Good attention to social distancing and nice atmosphere.

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!

Just wanted to recommend our server Nathan to your management.
He was so solicitous to our table of four. Even with the zig zagging the way the tables are spaced now ....he was so courteous and always stopping by to check our table and needs without interrupting our conversation....very professional. You have a gem there in him.

Mon Ami Gabi is just a hit or miss. And Father's Day it was a miss. Every dish except for the caesar salad was inedible.

This was the first time we’d been at a restaurant since early March and we wanted to have a nice Father’s Day celebration. Mon
Ami Gabi is a favorite for steak frites and it didn’t disappoint. So glad to be able to enjoy it again.

Mon Ami Gabi Reston was ok. Nothing great. Their menu was trimmed down quite a bit and our server didn't seem as familiar with the menu. Also, they are now charging a 4% COVID surcharge and also charging for the baguette where a baguette used to be free. I can understand the situation but when you want to order escargots or mussels you really need bread to go along with it.

Also, for the restaurant not being opened I would have thought it would be super clean but it seemed dirty and didn't seem like any up keep had taken place. This used to be our favorite place in RTC but I was disappointed. They may be still trying to work things out so hopefully they will get back to normal soon.

Limited menu but enough to choose from. Two of us had the mussels - which were very good - and one had steak frites - also good. The fries and bread/butter are excellent. It was nice to be able to dine inside on a rainy night with good social distancing between tables.

Considering all the COVID-19 turmoil, Mon Ami (one of our favorite restaurants) did very nicely. The wider spacing of tables knocked a little buzz off the ambience, and we surely would have liked cloth tablecloths, but that can't be helped. The trout was a little buttery, but overall the food was excellent as usual.

It was a great meal out after not being able to properly dine out for the last few months. Everyone was masked and the dining room was quiet albeit stark with no table cloths or condiments and digital menus that you scan from your phone. The food was fantastic as it always is and the service was great as well.

Lost outdoor seating reservation even though called to confirm. Adding a 4% COVID charge to the bill is just wrong. Everyone is hurting and their prices are too high already. Limited menu seems unreasonable too. Trying to support the return, but they didn’t make it easy.

This was the first night of indoor dining (Phase 2 of reopening), so we kept our expectations in check. Service was a bit slow, but our server was both friendly and professional. The restaurant appeared to be upholding all guidelines, with employees wearing masks and gloves, and tables set 6 feet apart. Unfortunately, a person at the table next to us (who was not dining) set his chair a few feet from us in order to physically distance himself from his companion! I think the restaurant should not have allowed that.
The food was quite good as always. We were disappointed that they did not have our favorite Bearnaise sauce - hope that is temporary! So glad our favorite restaurant in RTC is open again.

The food, as usual at Mon Ami Gabi, was very good but the service was rushed. The servers couldn't wait to take our order and there was no discussion about what the food or drinks would be like. We look forward to being able to eat inside when perhaps the servers will be more relaxed.

Both entrees of filet mignon were overcooked, poor cuts and tasted only of cracked peppercorn. I couldn’t taste the truffle oil that was supposed to be on the steak due to the overpowering pepper. We never received a side that we ordered. The server was very nice and gave us a dessert for a special occasion but the Crème brûlée was cold and lumpy. For a $100+ date at a French steakhouse I would’ve expected more. Normally I don’t have such strong opinions and I don’t mean to be rude but if you’re looking for a good steak, look elsewhere.
