    This is the third time that I have dined at Abby Park--and I have always gone there on a Sunday. The first time I visited the restaurant, I was provided with the option of ordering from the lunch menu or the brunch menu. I ordered a dish from the lunch menu that was delicious. The second time I visited, I was only given the brunch menu; I asked if I could order the dish from the lunch menu and they graciously fulfilled my request. The third time I visited (this past Sunday), I was again only given the brunch menu. When I asked if I could order the dish from the lunch menu, I was told no. A staff member (who told me that his prime duty was to make sure that customers are happy), asked the chef if he could make the dish, but the chef said no.

    let me start the same way our evening did, with our waiter Manny. He was superb! So upbeat, very engaging and funny! We all enjoyed his personality as well as his knowledge of the menu. I have been here many times, but it was a central meeting place for my dear friends form California staying in Cambridge, as well her her local relatives who had never been to AP before. It was perfect! Delicious food, great atmosphere, and outstanding service. We had a variety of apps, mostly seafood entrees, and my crazy friend form Cali ordered 1 of every dessert on the menu. I recommend that, for the sheer fun of it! The food was served in a perfect amount of time, and everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly!

    Pretty space, great food, great location. Unfortunately VERY noisy. If in a small group, sit upstairs as the small and cozy downstairs usually has three large groups and you feel as if you are eating at someone else's party. Upstairs is also loud but less so and not so awkward.

    This was our first time at Abby Park and we were very impressed. The serviced was attentive but not overbearing. We ordered burgers and flat bread pizzas, both of which were delicious and perfectly prepared. It is a good idea to make a reservation as this place gets crowded quickly, even during off hours. There is a small parking loot, which was full, but we were lucky enough to find a space on the street (not always easy in east Milton)

    Abby park is becoming a favorite! Although the noise level makes it difficult to carry on a conversation the hostess did offer to seat us downstairs. Our waiter, Manny, was great making wonderful suggestions and not rushing us. The salmon, panko and skinny, was outstanding as were the scallops. Definitely will return.

    Enjoyed our date night at Abby Park! Our waitress was very personable and let us pace our meal slowly, wine then app then dinner, we didn't feel rushed in the least! The wine was amazing, the tuna app was super delicious and our entrees were cooked to perfection! Overall just the night out we needed.

    Dirty glasses. Water splashed over us and big pond left on floor. Food terrible. Go to the Marketplace Cafe just around the corner - far superior in every way. Anyone who knows anything about good restaurants should not enter this place. I can't believe that it passed the standards of certain food and travel organizations. It is frightening to think how low the American standards are. Appalling!

    Had a family birthday dinner and the food was excellent. Service was terrific and the food was served hot and all at the same time. There were 8 people at the table and there was room to add a couple more people. The dining room is around the bar. It was a Sunday so the bar was quiet. Overall it was a nice experience!

    As my ratings indicate, this is a good restaurant. No real complaints but nothing to write home about. Server was curt and gave the attitude of impatience yet did her job. Calamari and lobster dip appetizers were delicious. Wine and Cocktail lists are creative (especially Abby-tini) and reasonable. The Salmon entree was (as in sushi) undercooked but the server did offer to return it to the kitchen. Meanwhile, the chicken was a bit overcooked yet sauces and the sides were good. The atmosphere is upbeat, the portions are adequate and the prices are good. The location is great and there is usually space in their parking lot in the rear or on the street. So, I will definitely return.

    Cocktails which were delicious, smaller than in most restaurants. We split crab cakes for an app - very good, but nothing extraordinary. I ordered panko crusted salmon, available in a gluten-free option. It arrived with no panko crust (silly me, I assumed they would use the gluten-free panko bread crumbs available at any major grocery store). The salmon was perfectly cooked and flavorful but the aioli was overwhelming. Veggies and potatoes were a bit overcooked. Husband had filet mignon which was good, exactly what you'd expect. Each dish had a dominant flavor that didn't allow the subtle interplay I usually expect in a nicer restaurant. Busboy wasn't sure whether to clear silverware with app plates, waiter never offered dessert menu.

    The menu has some nice items but its all priced as if the restaurant were in downtown boston and not in E Milton Sq. Chicken saltemboca was good but chicken was dry. Risotto was the star of the dish. It was topped with a salad which didnt quite understand. Salad became wilted from the heat from the chicken.

    We had a great dinner at Abby Park. Parking was a pain, since we were not familar with the area, we did not know we could park in the lot behind building. The beet salad as really good, and large enough for us to share. We both enjoyed our entrees...I had teh seared scallops, and my companion had the skinny salmon. Both were very well prepared. Service was fine, if not a little too attentive, as it was a quiet weeknight. We did have to ask if there were specials.

    Local neighborhood spot, easy access and plenty of available parking. Decor as you walk in is pleasant and inviting. Menu had variety between simple , casual meals or entree's. I had a well made cocktail, my partner a nice glass of wine (& a "good pour"). Scallop entree for my sweetie and chicken saltamboca for me...pleasantly surprised by the different layers of flavors in both dishes. Only suggestion would be to time the meal better between drinks and dinner. Otherwise we were very satisfied and will return. Looks like a great place for a casual bar meal as well. A highlight was the ability of my sweetie and I to have a conversation without shouting over the loud din in most restaurants these days. Had a perfect "buzz" for us.
