    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.

    As always the place was loud but in previous visits we ignored that because the food and service was good. Man how far you have fallen Abigaile. Service sucked really bad and the food was marginal. That will be my last visit

  • No points! Many other better places

    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

    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 really enjoyed all of the food and the wine. My only drawback was it was incredibly loud - almost to the point where I was struggling to hear my friends speak who were right next to me. I hope next time I can sit outside so it's not so noisy.

    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!

    We were there for restaurant week and got the prix fix menu. Dinner took over 1.5 hours due to plates coming out very slowly. Maybe it was because of restaurant week, maybe it was the private party upstairs, who knows. Venue is WAY too loud, and some of the musical choices kinda suck. I get the fact that 30 years ago punk bands practiced hear, and in college I probably listened to many of them, but it doesnt mean I want to be blasted with lessor tracks while I'm trying to eat dinner and speak to my wife. The mix of fine food and punk is a questionable design choice. I would suggest a better alternative by the same restaurant group is Dia de Campo around the corner.

    Host staff and server were very accommodating; the authentic friendly beach community vibe was very cool. Coleen /Pauline? was perfect in her timing of courses; no overlap, no rush. Food was a delight with amazing flavors and over textures to experience on this chef's menu. Vietnamese Pho salad was an explosion of crisp flavors and the Scallops with slab bacon was indulgent.

    Pao de queijo: "cheezy poofs" with butter and spice honey, the highlight of the meal! 5/5 Rosemary & sage potato chips: so oily they weren't even crispy. inedible. 0/5 Foraged wild mushrooms with creamy polenta: tasty but very rich; I had enough after two bites. 3.5/5 Scallops & bacon with wild mushroom risotto: scallops were delicious, but the risotto was too salty. 3/5 Plancha baby octopus with sausage, quail egg and mojo verde: tender octopus on a skewer, nicely charred, well-seasoned, components went well together. 4/5 fried chicken: our server suggested this as our last dish. nothing special, good seasoning but the chicken was definitely dry. 3/5 Inconsistent food with highs and lows, but great ambiance, service and cocktails.

    I made a reservation for me and a friend for night 1 of Dine LA, and to state it simply, all other restaurants on the Dine LA roster will have a lot to live up to. Not only was the Dine LA offering incredibly filling, each and every item brought to the table was simply amazing. From the Brazilian Bread with butter and honey, to the foraged mushroom polenta, to the incredible scallops, each portion was unbelievably more tasty than the one before. Overall, it was one of the best meals I've had to date. I find that South Bay standards are typically sub-par when compared to the rest of LA, but this place does not disappoint. It's up there with Gjelina and Mozza in by book!
