    Abigaile had very good food and an interesting menu selection for brunch, but the staff didn't seem to have it together. Although we had a reservation, we waited close to 15 minutes for a table before conceding to sitting at a communal high top. Hostess seemed overwhelmed with all of the parties. In terms of food, took a long time for drinks to come out and they were staggered. With our food, some of it came out right away while one person was left waiting for his for an additional 15 minutes at least. During that time it estas difficult to track down waitress to ask about it. She also disappeared when we wanted check.

    Food was YUMMY and our server Skai was AMAZING! She pointed us in all the right directions and our tastebuds and tummies were thankful for every single suggestion! You have to get the biscuits to start. And the scallops & bacon. And everything else. Perfect service and great food. :)

    We live on the East side of Los Angeles and searched online for a glowing recommendation for Hermosa Beach dining. We were so impressed with the service, the cocktails, the food, and general friendliness and ambiance -not to mention the view. We especially LOVED the cheesey puffs! But all food (and two of us are vegetarian) was so tasty and filling and the way it was served family style was perfect for sharing the yumminess. I would come back to dine at Abigaile again and again.

    This was my second time at Abigail's and it was just as good as the first time. Loved all of our dishes especially the cheesy, gooey bites, tin tin noodles, arugula salad, lomo saltado, curried short rib and to finish the mascarpone pumpkin cake. Would return anytime.

    Can't stop thinking about the papaya salad. I'm normally not a fan, but it was so fresh and aromatic! I want more! Hamachi yum...short ribs...yum...cheezy poofs yum...brussel sprouts yum...mussels yum...pork loin yum...rib eye...very tender but was missing something. I will definitely be back to explore more dishes. :)

    It was fun friday night at Abigaile restaurant. There were a lot of menus to choose from(from asian to american, very different styles), service was great although food came a little late, and nice music and ambiance overall. Would like to visit on a daytime to see the ocean view too.

    Pig pop tarts were delicious as always. The pao extremely tasty. Terrific beers and drinks. Seirvice is always friendly and pretty quick. My one complaint this time was that the Brussels sprouts had way too much red pepper. I love spicy food but the brussels sprouts were over-the-top. We bailed on them halfway through. I always recommend the red curry short rib and the chipotle meatballs. Pretty much everything they have is great. Terrific restaurant.

    The wife & I went to Abigaile for my birthday and were amazed at how great this place is. From the “cheesy poof” appetizer through the (free!) “Snickers bar” dessert, every dish was packed with deliciousness. The manager stopped by our table several times and made us feel like we were getting special treatment. Oh, and great beer too! I will be going back to this restaurant very, very soon.

    I love coming to brunch here. Food is fresh, delicious and just the right portion size. Whilst not your usual fixings on any menu in an Americano restaurant.. these guys do a tasty spin on brunch. Staff are professional, friendly and helpful. Never been disappointed. Sometimes wise to make a reservation.

    Apparently, I received no Open Table points. In a related story, I can't give the restaurant many points, either. The noise level was crazy and, although the interior is OK, there are TV screens playing "the game." Glorified sports bar. *It was my birthday* and I took a chance booking my party there based on the menu and some reviews. SO sad! Not the celebration I'd hoped for. Food was meh. The only redeeming factor was the waiter who brought us a dessert on the house. He was SO sweet!! That really meant a lot. (When we walked in, we said it was my bday. The girl at the podium said they'd put a candle in it if we ordered dessert). Food, atmosphere and Open Table points lacking - sadly, I don't want to go back, and can't recommend it.

    South Bay seems to be full of small plate/family style restaurants... This is another one, but once again the food is great. Really loved the house brewed beers, delish! My only problem with this type of restaurant is that everything sounds (and tastes) so good that we always over order! The scallops were perfect, and the mushroom risotto it comes with was so rich and comforting. Meatballs were just ok, wish the sauce was spicier, but the polenta they came with was amazing! Mussels were unique and tasty, not your typical wine sauce, so good! And the PIG pop tart was yummy. Overall a great night out

    Being a Hermosa resident, this place has become my "go to!" Food is always great and creative and is your quintessential "gastropub" with equally delicious, hand-crafted cocktails. Service is probably the best in Hermosa. Love the ocean view from the windows and the patio is great to sit in both day and night! Highly recommend the brunch on Sundays which include their "Forever Mimosas!" If you live here you've most likely been to Abigaile. If you are visiting or looking for something new you must definitely try!

    Made a reservation for 11:30, though most of us were seated around 11:15/11:20. By 11:45 no one had even been by to take drink orders-- not sure how long it would have been if 2 of us hadn't gone to talk to the manager. We've been here multiple times and usually have a good experience... Though the hostess did apologize, they did nothing else to make up for the error. my food still arrived 10 minutes later than the rest of the party and my friend's poached eggs on the Benedict was just about hard boiled.

    Did not live up to it's hype. We ordered the kale salad, brussel sprouts, tuna tartare, and thai red curry short ribs. The short ribs were so hot that the underlying flavors didn't come through. And being from New Orleans, we like hot food but this was painfully hot. I've had much better tuna tartare at a few other places. Neither salad wowed. The noise level was annoying but it was manageable.

    I found out about Abigailes a few weeks ago - I love small plates and it was listed as one of the top 10 in L.A. It's hard to find great food in the South Bay, but this is a gem. I've been back twice since my first visit to try all the things on the menu that look so good and everything I've had has been amazing.

    I am a big fan of Tin Voung's other restaurants, Little Sister and Dia de Campo. This one seems a little neglected. The menu ideas are all great but the execution is not up to the ideas. Salads were overdressed, sauces didn't always fit, etc, etc. Then, at 10pm on a Saturday night, the place becomes a big, loud bar for out-of-towners -- you can tell because they smoke and wear weird clothes.

    Been to Abigaile a half dozen times and always enjoy it. Kale and date salad always tasty. The pao another favorite. Spicy lamb meatballs and pig pop tarts were delicious. Try the red curry short rib. Service always good. I was a little disappointed by the lack of a good IPA on tap, but their Belgian was a nice substitute. Our whole party enjoyed the dinner very much.

    Brought the family (kids ages 15,19,21) and wife (not disclosing age!) on a Friday night. Had reservations for 9:00pm and received a call around 5:00pm from the restaurant to verify if we were coming in. I said yes and asked if they could move our reservation to an earlier time (around 7:00pm). They said yes! Food was great, service was great, drinks were great. Would definitely go back!
