A word from Abigaile Restaurant
Abigaile is about sharing and exploring food without boundaries, gimmicks or pretense. Our dishes are always evolving based on the availability of quality market ingredients, and often, a creative whim. We believe one of life’s greatest sources of joy is what happens when people come together to share a meal.

So gather. Trust us. Step just a little outside your comfort zone. And enjoy food without order or rules.

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a wonderful dining experience and the food was outstanding. Chef Jorge also came out of the kitchen to serve and present some of his specialities and this was a wonderful experience. Everything we tasted was fresh, unique and savory and the food was plentiful to share. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys gourmet food. Excellent choice for dinner and we cannot wait to go back!"

  • "Amazing food but really loud. Not ideal for a romantic date."

  • "We ate here on a Friday night. Very good, creative food and pleasant service. Most dishes are to be shared. Very trendy place which means it can be noisy, but this place is way over the top. Architecture amplifies background noise and they had music playing at a loud level. Result is that you cannot talk to anyone even sitting next to you without shouting. Even the waitress could not hear our order. I have a noise meter on my cell phone and this place registered over 90 db which is actually considered dangerous to your hearing after 2 hours. Do not go here if you value your hearing or if you have any interest in talking to any of your friends. The four of us are never coming back."

  • "Made an 830 reservation, we were not told until after we sat and ordered a drink that the kitchen would be making "last call" at 850. Drink ordering was almost comical; this is a brewery and yet, we couldn't get many if the beers we wanted. How does a brew pub run out of beer? Then we were rushed into ordering dinner at which time, our server started crossing off the items that were no longer available. Needless to say, almost everything we wanted we couldn't get, leaving us to order mostly all fried foods of one sort or another. They were greasy and unappetizing. Definitely not a repeat visit."

  • "We went there for dinner, then tried to come back later for a drink but weren't allowed back in because my husband was wearing shorts. Really?? This is really stupid for a beach community! Hoity-toity at it's best!"

  • "SUCH good food- this was a really unexpected surprise! Recommended to us by a stranger and my husband and I stopped in at the last minute. SO glad that we did! Excellent, inventive menu- great service and will DEFINITELY be returning with friends."

  • "Had a great time and it is fun to share with friends. As the evening wore on the noise got louder and louder, and this was on a Tuesday. My understanding is by 10 PM it is really noisy. Food was really good, although not particularly healthful for the most part. Could have had the whole meal off the appetizer menu. The Brazilian cheese rolls were very authentic and delicious. Will go back for sure."

  • "We arrived very early for our reservation, so the hosts gave us a high top table near the bar. This made for an uncomfortable dinner, as we ordered many tapas that came out in stages, and then our server disappeared. The food was delicious, particularly the burrata, Brazilian cheese puffs with honey, asparagus with poached egg, and duck french dip. Then, we waited at least 15 minutes for the dessert menu, which we eventually had to ask our busser to bring, then awhile longer for the check, which we eventually asked a manager for. He brought it and explained she must have gotten distracted with tables in another section, offered a dessert when we told him how long it had been, but we were already full and done with sitting at bar stools."

  • "Overall, going to Abigaile was like having a gourmet Asian-fusion meal in a gastropub setting. The food was absolutely amazing! We had the tempura green beans to start, Lomo Saltado (Steak), tin tin noodles and the best thing was the thai curry shortrib. It had incredible flavor and was super tender. The Simon18 is a great cocktail choice for those whole enjoy a Moscow mule. We were there early, and had very friendly and prompt service (5ish). It was pretty quiet too, but I'm sure it gets loud when it's packed. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We had never heard of the restaurant before, but it was my husband's birthday and we decided to go someplace new. The two of us and another couple went there for dinner on Wednesday night. We loved it! The food was excellent and perfect for sharing. Our waitress did a lovely job at keeping us happy. The interior space was a little loud (hockey game was on tv) so we sat outside - although it was a little chilly outside, the walls and the outdoor heaters kept us comfortable. We look forward to our next visit!"

  • "Unique menu and all the dishes we had were tasty. This is a nice place with a low snob coefficient, which makes it pretty unique. I will be back to try more of their menu, probably on a date I'd like to tone down to casual while maintaining a little pizzazz. Try the scallops and the P.I.G. meaty, doughy wrap thingy. Yum!"

    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Place is kind of funky looking and my parents definitely wondered what they were in for, especially since the music & TV was pretty loud (should be toned down a bit for brunch). However, menu is innovative and has a wide range of offerings. Everything we had was really good. The Brazilian cheese puffs served with Maple syrup and butter were awesome. The frittata, the salmon blt and the heirloom tomato salad (could use a few more tomatoes) were all excellent, so was the pain perdu which one of our party had (I didn't taste). Food is surprisingly good and not what you might expect from the decor. Restaurant is also a brewery and has a great selection of beers and a vast wine list. Definitely worth returning to."

  • "I planned a last minute get together for my team and Abigaile was able to get a table for our party of 10 the day of! (a difficult feat in Hermosa) All of the wine and beer was top quality and the food was delightful. We had a little bit of everything on the menu and nothing disappointed. I highly recommend Abigaile for any dinner whether you're entertaining a date or a group. If you really want to impress your guests checkout the website to get the history of this location."

  • "Delicious brunch. Cheesy rolls are amazing. So are the lemon ricotta pancakes. Fancy foodie type food without the annoying attitude that tends to come with it at other foodie places in the area. Enjoy! "

  • "Second time here food was amazing both times. Service much better this time around, food and drinks on time, waitress was excellent. Chipotle meatballs were my choice (again!) wife had the lamb, both were delicious. Shared the asparagus with our friends, next time will not share! Highly recommend Abigaile. "

  • "Probably the best Moscow Mule ever (and I've had plenty!). Great, friendly service - from the hostess, bartender and servers. Came with a girlfriend who was visiting from out of town. We split the "Pop Tart" (perfection!), the toast with burrata cheese and cherries, and of course the gooey cheese puffs. Great atmosphere - cannot wait to return! "

  • "The menu is filled with a wonderful variety of creative dishes. Our group of six sampled a dozen dishes and found each and every one to be absolutely delicious. The service was excellent. The drinks and brews were fun to try and also tasty. We had a great meal and a fun evening. We're telling everyone to go to Abigaile."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Been there a bunch of times now. Never had anything I didn't enjoy. This time our party of four shared the famous pao biscuits (X2), kale salad with prosciutto wrapped dates, the salmon BLT, roasted brussels sprouts, brewery burger, and finished with the snicker bar. The Altered State IPAs were very good. Service a tad slow this time, but there were a couple of large parties. Very noisy, like lots of places these days -- makes it a little hard to have conversations. All in all a great place. "

  • "A very open space (hence, 'see and be seen'). Nice patio area which can be reserved for only you and your party. A lot of items to choose from. 5 of us shared many plates; all tasty. Small plates and while not overpriced ~ compared to other similar restaurants ~ some of the plates were a bit scant, for the price point. (Skip the calamari for this very reason.) Staff were all friendly/helpful when talking to them. However service seemed slow, the entire time we were there. Drinks slow to arrive and we were there from 6p - 7:20p. Not peak time! Loud inside and this is fine ~ just don't be expecting quiet. I will return for the tasty food, good-to-great cocktails, and nice vibe."

  • "Abigaile's is hidden from all the HB Pier hustle & bustle. You probably wouldn't find it if you weren't looking for it. But what a treasure! Ocean views, outdoor patio, friendly staff, incredible food & drink. I've been there twice now, once for dinner & now for brunch. At the brunch, it had endless Mimosas...which made for a relaxing, enjoyable time sipping while enjoying the view. We started with pao de queijo, chewy cheesy little bread poofs served with butter topped with fresh rosemary & maple syrup. Then we had the corned beef hash & huevos rancheros...both made with excellent/delicious twists on the recipes. Dinner was just as excellent. Parking is under the building, making it easy to wander and find your car after all the mimosas!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "An unusual place for Mother's Day Brunch, since it is essentially a gastropub, but they have excellent mixed drinks, bottomless mimosas, and interesting menu of dishes. No conventional American breakfast dish to be found here, although they do their version of a McMuffin. I could make a mean of the pao de queijo (cheesy puffs) with maple butter alone. I will be sure to return to test their house-brewed craft beer."

  • "We had a group of 19 girls and I coordinated with Kyle in advance and even sent him my menu. Upon arrival we were seated with less than half our party present which was nice since typically restaurants make you wait for at least half if not the whole party. We were seated on the outdoor covered patio and the heat lamps kept us nice and toasty even though we were in dresses and it was in the 60s. Our amazing server took it from there and paced the courses so incredibly well. It seemed every time we finished a dish a new one came out and we would simply exchange the empty for a new item! She handled our large group effortlessly and it almost felt like we were her only table even though that was not the case. I was very impressed!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Food came out very slow & 1 entree at a time over a 30 min. period of time. I think the last dish (fried chicken) must have gotten messed up & had to restart it. Every other time we've been here the food has NEVER been this slow. Will definitely return for another brunch!"
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Abigaile is a great restaurant. Cool and hip but not pretentious. The decor is interesting and unique but relaxed, the hostess and staff are excellent. The food was a solid 4-4.5 stars, we had a group of 4 and ordered a nice selection of dishes. All were excellent and above average but the squid. I thought it was overwhelmed by the sauce and offered a meager portion for the $. Otherwise portion size is perfect for the $. he cocktails were interesting and nicely prepared. Presentation was very nice as well. A tad bit loud for dates perhaps but they do have quieter outdoor seating. "

  • "Our waitress forgot about us for half an hour. The food was hit and miss. The squid appetizer was amazingly delicious. We also ordered salt and pepper prawns. The prawns were very good, though not enough salt (and none on the table), the veggie dish it was served on top of, was blend and excessively oily. 'Budda's belly' (veggie dish with eggplant and tofu) was extremely spicy (like if you would order 'very spicy' in Thai restaruant) and also sweet (there was no mention on the menu of how spicy it will be) I usually love spicy food, but this was way too much - I couldn't eat it. When I mentioned it to the waitress she just smiled. Also the rice it was served on was swimming in oil, literally. My husband's pork dish had the same oily rice. "

  • "Dinner with a large group in there open roof top bar area. The wind can make it chilly. Some headlamps and a fireplace makes it very inviting. Food was superb. Some mix up with the orders but it was very busy. Negative is lack of available free parking. There is Valet. Not much of any views. Bar, beer and specially drinks are 5 stars. "
