We spent an afternoon at Reston Town Center and we heard about this resto from a colleague. The outside ambiance is nice and the although we went on a weekend, we were seated in the patio. The baguette was really good to start. We ordered the italian cheese with olives and my wife loves it. I ordered the steak sandwich... More

Entrees were Swordfish and bison rib eye, they were fantastic. Finished the meal with the a delicious souffle. The dress code says smart casual, but... More

I have it in my daughter's bridal shower at Mon Ami Gabi. The food was wonderful. The staff was great. They put up a coat rack--cold day--and a table for gifts. They worked with me before hand to set up a menu.Everything went perfectly!

You've been strolling around a high-end downtown, outdoor mall passing interesting burger joints, expensive chains, and conference-type eateries for large groups, and wondering whether there is any hope of a "special" meal. YES! Welcome to a a little corner of urban France, Mon Ami Gabs. Enter and enjoy the warm baguette as you decide on soup, charcuterie, or salad and... More

They have good vegetarian options here. The first time we were here we had just embarked on a month long vegetarian adventure so we were quite happy to see that they offered some excellent choices for this

By American French, I mean that the recipe is French based, but adjusted to the American taste. For instance, the onion soup will have one inch of cheese at the top and a large piece of bread, not leaving much space for the soup. In France, there is less cheese and less bread making it more like a soup than... More

Went here for a birthday celebration and could not be happier. The menu is true to what you would expect from a French style bistro - think steak frites, fish and a few traditional French dishes such as beef Bourgogne. Not a huge menu but se md to have something for most anyone. Note that the Saturday night tornado special... More
