Diner Reviews
  • "You took our reservation and when we arrived, the place was closed!!!! Not impressed!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The January night we visited the heat had been off all day and the place was freezing. Although the food was okay the temperature in the room made it hard to concentrate on our meal and all we could think of of was getting finished and out before frost bite set in. When we first arrived ... around 6 pm the place was deserted ... something that always worries me. It did eventually start to fill up but it seemed most people were there for a drink and not a meal. Maybe it's more of a neighbourhood bar rather than a restaurant."

  • "Found this little neighborhood spot on Yelp. It's a small place with very friendly, cheerful staff. We ordered a few appetizers/sides to share for our dinner: steak tartare (heavy on the mustard), poutine (perfect amount of heavy), brussel sprouts (just wish there were more) and mac 'n cheese (creamy and comforting). All of them were very tasty. I'd definitely come back to try their entrees."

  • "I took an old friend here for dinner before she left for college in the US. Quiet enough to have a intimate conversation, but not uncomfortably quiet (where you feel like everyone can hear you). Food was excellent, the waitress was attentive without being intrusive, and the music selection was on point. The food was delivered in good time. I highly recommend the Mousse dessert, just awesome. I've been to far more expensive places that have had inferior food and atmosphere, so I'd recommend going here in a heartbeat. Just don't come with a rowdy group of friends, this is a 4 person max. Any more and you'll lose the ambiance. For reference, I'm a 21 year old guy."

  • "My husband and I went to Abigail's Party for an early weeknight dinner. It was nice weather so we sat on the patio which was pleasant. The pork lettuce wraps were pretty good to start. We ordered the duck confit cassoulet as an entree and I was disappointed. The taste was just OK and the way it was served made it just too darn hot to enjoy. I have heard that the brunch is good and would be willing to give that a try another time but I'm not sure I'd return for dinner again."

  • "Mussels are phenomenal and you gotta try the Duck Cassoulet"

  • "Hi, came to Abail's Party in a party of 4. Had been there about 5 years ago 5 or 6 times for dinner and or just drinks and appys. it was awesome in the past so that's why i wanted to return. My Halibut was GREAT! 2 of our 2 steaks at the table were over done. We only told our server about 1 of them being cooked incorrect (he just wanted to eat). She was polite and prompt to get the steak redone and it was done without disappointment the 2nd time:) the appys were tasty, drinks were good too. Ambiance was good. Gets hard to hear when its full in there only due to all the hard surfaces and thats its a small space. I love the lighting and the bar tucked away around the corner:) All in all a good time.See you again.Thanks!"

  • "Service was really poor, our server acted put out to do her job, food over priced, and so loud I couldn't hear a word my girlfriend said. Avoid this over rated hole in the wall. Was sadly disappointed, not a place for a romantic dinner. It has aditude for all the reasons."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great gastro bar with excellent food and delicious cocktails. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I'm celiac and dairy intolerant so eating out can be a challenge for me at times. Abigail's Party made me feel very confident that I would be eating food that my stomach could handle because, after I listed my allergies on the comment section for my reservation, the chef actually CALLED ME to ask about my dietary restrictions and discuss menu options. My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary dinner and loved it all!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "It still is our favorite restaurant and it never disappoints. It is cozy and fun, whether we order split meals or a full on courses, everyone makes us feel special. We love introducing it to friends and will continue to go there."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Six of us were on the hunt for a social dinner before going to see Beggar's Opera in Jericho. It was a first time visit for all, and we were not disappointed. Great ambiance in this neat neighborhood restaurant. Lots of savory options for us carnivores as well as enough of a suitable selection to satisfy our lone vegetarian. Service was very good, and when had lost track of time and told them we had to leave for a show in 20 mins they rushed us our desert and bills. We will be returning."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This is one of our favourite places to go for a little light celebrating. It's special without being overly formal or fancy. The menu changes seasonally and is always delicious, and the cocktail menu is really special. We often have very warm, friendly service here, so it was noticeable tonight that it was a bit more reserved, but still quick and pleasant. Lovely atmosphere - great spot for a romantic evening out."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I went for dinner the food was good but the restaurant was so cold I has to keep my coat on. The people next to us also had their coats. Just paid the heat bill.it is a small restaurant they shouldn't have any problem keep it warm."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We've been to Abigail's Party a few times. I'm always a little underwhelmed by the food selection - there just aren't a lot of choices. BUT, the food is tasty and well prepared, the drinks menu is great, the ambience is intimate and in general it's a nice night out. The service is nothing outstanding but nothing wrong with it. Last time we were there it was early so not too noisy but it does get a bit loud when it's full. Overall I'd recommend it. Probably not good for a group over 4 people...much better for a date night."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Had a great dinner date here. The food was spectacular! The environment was great. It's really small, warm, and comfortable. The service was good, the waitress we had was absolutely lovely. We're goin back to try Abigail's brunch!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Only the first course was really good, the rest was average"
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Drinks and apps were GREAT! Main courses were ok. Service and ambiance were also great. I am definitely going back."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The place has a fun buzz and a fairly intimate feel. It is quite loud though, so not ideal for a relaxing intimate meal. The food is all good, but doesn't stand out (I've tried two mains so far). Good drink list. A little bit more expensive than is justified by the food quality - I feel like you're paying for the buzz. The service is friendly and effective, but again, doesn't stand out."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The food was good, love the ambience and has a really great wine and cocktail list."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Never knew about this restaurant, and the name didn't portray the cozy, yet upbeat feel. Delicious meal (had the duck) and fast, friendly service. Would definitely go again!"
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "I did a Dine-out here and I was disappointed. I love this restaurant for brunch and the neighborhood location but this dine-out menu was disappointing. Their fish was bland, no flavor just overly garlicky. My husbands steak was also bland and the frites were actually the best part of the meal. I guess they're good at the comfort food there (my friends fried chicken was good) but I think they tried to get too fancy with some of their dinner items. I could have done a better job with the fish and steak at home. Their service is good though and staff is friendly. The dessert that came with the course was also lacking the punch you'd expect from good restaurants. I'd still go back but would never pay $28 for a dinner there again. Not worth it."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "It is a very small space, but the ambiance is nice. We had reservations at 8:15pm, but unfortunately we waited about 15 min to be seated. The waitress was very nice and we each received a glass of wine or cocktail on the house for our patience. The food was good, however it was a lot heavier than I expected. Everyone enjoyed their food, I just would rather eat food that isn't that rich."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "My friend and I were excited about this restaurant, but after they forgot our main dish, we were disappointed. Our meals should of been free and not just a glass of wine. The servers were too busy socializing."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "My wife and I don't have "date night" very often anymore now that we have three kids, but the Dine Out Vancouver festival was a perfect opportunity to try out a new restaurant. Abigail's was fun, cozy, and had delicious food. The portion sizes were on the small side, but as part of the three course meal were perfect. The service was good, though, the attitude of our server could have been a bit more cheerful. Overall, I would go there again and would recommend it to friends."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "We ordered the chicken and it came over cooked. Burnt actually. We ate some of the dinner before we decided to send it back. When it returned the left over food on the plate, potatoes etc were gone. They only brought back the new chicken!?"

  • "A wee little restaurant, so cosy with neighbour tables.... Good food, attentive service...."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "My partner and I visited this restaurant for Dine Out Vancouver and had an amazing dinner. The cocktails are very creative and really good. The salad was fresh and zesty, the bruschetta original and cheesy, and the cheese plate delectable! We would both go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat."

  • "If your older & disabled this restaurant is not for you .even though the week before we made it clear we need a regular ( not high top table for our older aunt who due to a hip replacement can't hoist her self into a high top type table seat . ) it went in noted .we even saw the same hostess & reminded her of the conversation ,her response was "well noting was noted on your your reservation" my response don't you think that was your job ? No response . They did bring a part from there dish washer to use as a foot step to help get her up to the seat. The food was good ,I had the celeriac soup which was very good,buttermilk fried chicken was bland ,chocolate mousse very good."

  • "This is the way you do the Dine Out Vancouver celebration. There was no chintzing on the dishes, the selection was great and it does what it is intended - it brings you back. We were at the restaurant on a Tuesday evening and the place was hopping. They accommodated a change that I needed in the seating very well and made sure that my party was suitably happy. Wine is served both by the glass and by the bottle so perfect for a weekday evening. Dinner was a hit for everyone and definitely inspired to go back and try their regular menus and maybe grab a seat on the patio."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Abigail's Party was really wonderful. It is a small, cozy intimate venue with great food. It was a bit louder than usual the night I was there (Dine Out Vancouver). They have a daily selection of about 6 reds and 6 whites to chose from both from the bottle and the glass. This is where we found one of our favorite table wines for home. It's not a huge menu and seems to be mostly 'comfort type foods' which is great. The Brushcetta has lovely caramelized onions and garlic and is to die for."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "My friend and I very much enjoyed our Dining Out meal at Abigail's party. The food was absolutely delicious with a lovely presentation and abundant portions (unlike a lot of places which I won't mention). The wine was excellent and the server made good recommendations. Our only one complaint is that it was a bit noisy and the music volume went up in a way that it got difficult to talk. But otherwise, it was a very enjoyable evening -- and we will be back!"

  • "I have been out of town for 3 years and the last time I did dine out was here, so I suggested to my friends we go here again and it did not disappoint. the brushetta dish is amazing, the sweet honey drizzle makes it taste so good. I also got the fried chicken, and I live for chicken and it was juicy and crispy! as for the dessert; I tried the crumble it was quite dry and not very sweet. my friend has the chocolate mousse and that was surprisingly good; it was very rich and ended off we a surprising spicy effect in your mouth. overall, it great thus place is open till 2am so no one rushed us to get out of the restaurant."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "Haven't been here for a while, came back for Dine Out as the menu was intriguing. Not disappointed!! The "tower" of breaded eggplant was done perfectly, with the layers providing great taste / colour / texture accompaniment. Cheese plate for dessert was a treat. My spouse's caramel bread pudding was "one of the best they've found", which makes it pretty good for this city (given the number they've tried!!). Wine list as always is short, entertaining, and spot on for the menu. You really should start with a house cocktail though, some tasty combinations on the list."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Had heard good things from work colleagues so finally tried Abigail's Party as part of Dine Out Vancouver and loved it! The fixed menu was a great intro to the restaurant as most of the dishes are regularly available on their menu. The soup was light and fresh, and the trout was sublime. Tried a few cocktails too, and enjoyed them. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Abigail's Party was delicious and had great service! My partner and I literally scraped our plates. The Steelhead Trout was fantastic, as were the cocktails."

  • "Food was good and tasty but seating very uncomfortable. We arrived at 5:40 for a 6pm reservation and the restaurant was fairly empty. They gave us a bar height table close to the door (very cold) when we asked if we could have a regular table with regular height seats, they told us they were all reserved - even though there plenty of empty tables. They did offer us a worse table that was just as high, with stools, not chairs and not enough room to comfortably feed 4 people. They specified that we should have made a special note when we made the reservation. Since we had never been to the restaruant before, this seemed to be unfair. Since two of us were 4 ft 8 tall and 5 foot tall, it was very uncomfortable. The hostess- rude unco-operative"

  • "First of all AP is primarily a neighborhood resto as parking is impossible. We walked 10 mins from our eventual spot. Waitress was dismissive at first but other staff made up for her. I found their soup to be bland (although my husband quite liked the taste) my char dish was over sauced and the apple crumble desert only so-so. My husband quite liked his steak (tender and well prepared) as well as his starter salad. Overall not bad value, but not outstanding enuf an experience to search AP out. Maybe brunch in summer."
