The Perfect Brunch
Always wanted to visit Abby Park and finally the opportunity presented itself. There are a huge number of items on the brunch menu, but what is there is done very well.
Wait staff were attentive and the restaurant is well finished.
Will definitely go there again.

Friendly, efficient service in an attractive setting helped make for a very enjoyable evening. All of the courses, appetizers, mains, and desserts were well-prepared, attractively presented, and delicious. Highly recommended.

It was my first time there
It was my first time there and I have to say I enjoyed the burger I got but I could hardly hear my husband. The noise level is too much. I wouldn't recommend it for a private night out with someone special. Also your #2 question should have a box for "other" with a space for a comment.

Good ambience. The tapas starter
Good ambience. The tapas starter was amazing, very tasty. The main course was lovely, very large portion though. The chef gave us complimentary sides as he thought we had a wait for the main course, which wasn' t even that long. Service very good.

I Love this Place!
This was not my first time at Abby Park. It really is a neighborhood gem. I have to force myself not to get the same thing over and over again but it seems that everything I try becomes my "new favorite entree". The tomato/burrata salad is to die for. Their wasabi flavored mashed potatoes are bad either. We definitely will keep coming back!

A Night at Abby Park
We recently went to Abby Park for my birthday and we weren't disappointed. Our server was friendly, helpful, and provided just the right amount of attention. I started off with a great Cosmo. We shared a delicious Caesar salad, that was more than enough for two. The white anchovies on top gave it some zing. The crab cake appetizer, also more than enough for two, was the hit of the evening. Stuffed with crab on a bed of sushi rice, and garnished with avocado, it provided a memorable dining moment. I was pretty full by the time the entree came, but the wasabi-crusted tuna was tasty, if not as outstanding as the appetizer. All in all a fine meal, at a lovely restaurant, with great service.

What a Gem!
I am not a salad person but this Caesar Salad was the best I have ever had. Perfectly prepared and so fresh.
The Steak Tips were cooked perfectly and placed on the Grilled Asparagus embedded in a mound of Garlic Mash. This was surrounded by a perfect reduction sauce and a huge surprise.
The desert of Macaroons was a suitable sweet ending to one of the best Restaurant Week meals we have.
I will return.

Great Summer Lunch
I love Abby Park in all seasons, but couldn't have enjoyed my Greek Salad with sliced flank steak any more than I did last Saturday. It was fresh, light, non-salty and non-acidic in its dressing: made me want to come again because whoever made this salad made it with subtlety -- and Greek Salads don't always come that way. The presentation was also lovely: would have been great for a special occasion! Excellent waiter also worked sensitively and creatively with my fellow diner who had some serious dietary restrictions. A lovely afternoon!

I went to Abby's Park to celebrate my birthday with my friends, I'm a foodie and what a great surprise this place was. Very flavorful food, I had risotto with lobster and scallops, WOW it was out of the world, I also recommend chocolate lava cake, delicious. Wine very good. Ken was taking care of us, very professional with a great sense of humor.

A friend and I went to Abbey Park for lunch during restaurant week. Everything we had was delicious. The caesar salad was great. The lettuce was crispy and not overdressed. I had the salmon with rice and veggies. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the rice/veggie combination, with a delicious ponzu sauce, was the perfect compliment. My friend had the steak tips which were cooked exactly as he ordered them. The accompanying mashed potatoes were flavorful and the restaurant graciously substituted mushrooms for asparagus. Dessert was lovely - macaroons with chocolate sauce and warm chocolate cake.
Abbey Park is a delightful restaurant right in Milton square. I will definitely return. The service was terrific also!

Food's good, service is fair
Abby Park has been pretty consistent since shortly after it opened. They worked out the kinks in the food portions, for example. But they've never bothered to make the service consistent. This last visit wasn't bad, by Abby Park standards. Our waitperson said that she would be right back with the basket of bread, then didn't return. We were able to get bread from an efficient busperson later. We asked to have the mashed potatoes replaced with brussels sprouts. When the same busperson brought the plates out with the mashed potatoes on them, we told him, he took them back, and did eventually bring out the right plates. The waitress later blamed that on the kitchen. Much later, as she barely checked in. Grateful for the busser.

Ken and Pam
They make us very comfortable and at home. I can not say enough about them.

I should have dined here sooner.
An easy find, right off the highway. Great spot to meet in between for north and south shore friends. The food was amazing. I had scallops with lobster risotto and all four diners were so happy with their meals. Beautiful atmosphere, class act in every way!

We really enjoyed our anniversary celebration at abby park. We were seated at just the right table which afforded privacy and the ability to enjoy quiet conversation even though the restaurant was bustling. The food was wonderful from appetizers to wine to
The entrees. Dishes were beautifully presented pleasant to look at and every bite a delicious blend of flavors. We will return and bring some friends!

Great Neighborhood restaurant
It was Sunday night around 6:30 p.m. and the place was hopping & noisy. My husband has difficulty hearing so we asked for a booth - nothing was available in the upper part of the restaurant so we where shown to a table in the downstairs dining room. It was wonder and quite since there was only another table occupied - it was like dining in a private space. Food and service was wonderful too. A great night out!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my husband
This is one of my husband and my favorite restaurants. They are a fantastic "city-chic" place to go when you don't feel like going to the city!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Charming, delicious, great service
My husband and I took my uncle, who was visiting from Tampa, here on Saturday night. We were seated down stairs in a little room, which was great because it was much more quiet the the upstairs, and we could have a normal conversation. We ordered Caesar salad that was yummy and our entrees: seafood fradiavlo, skinny salmon and short ribs, all of which were perfectly cook, presented well and DELICIOUS. The Malbec was tasty, and they had Shipyard Pumpkin head on tap! Our server was engaging and attentive and answered all of our questions. We will definitely be coming back and recommending it to others.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Something for everyone.
We met another couple at Abby Park for brunch. We had all been there previously for dinner. We arrived a little early for our 11:30 AM rez but there was no delay in seating us. Our waiter was friendly and gregarious. The menu included both hearty breakfast and luncheon choices. We always get the hummus appetizer plate. It never disappoints. Our choices included a tuna melt (It was so large that my husband couldn't finish it.); the salmon platter, cinnamon French Toast and the house omelet. Everyone was satisfied and no one was able to clean his/her plate. I would certainly return any time for a predictably good meal.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to meet friends and have a great meal. Parking can be tough but worth the hassle as the food is always great and the service is friendly and quick.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Abbey park is a great local restaurant for people! Food is great, service is very good and the room is lively yet booths can be cozy and more private . Great spot th hang with friends at the bar and get apps. Really like this place!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a reservation at 8pm. Arrived 10 minutes late and were seated right away.
Waiter arrived promptly and made an excellent wine recommendation. The meal was paced
perfectly. All of the food was amazing! We will defintely be back and have already raved about Abby Park
to our friends and family.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Do not leave without trying the lobster dip appetizer. Lamb was delicious as were the short ribs and miso salmon. We'll be back

Great anniversary night
As a busy couple with two small infants, we have zero time to go out to dinner. However, we had a relative in town to watch the kids briefly, and it was our anniversary night, so we decided to try going to our neighborhood gem, Abby Park.
I logged onto OpenTable.com at 7:45pm on a friday and made a reservation for 8:15. Not only were we able to get a table in this very busy restaurant, but they honored my request for a booth and even brought us a free dessert for our anniversary! What great service... this is why we keep going back, and I hold a lot of business dinners there as well.
Also, I had the rack of lamb for the first time -- it was fabulous!
Thanks for great service and a great evening on our anniversary, Abby Park.

Warm and inviting
The restaurant has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. This was my second time at this restaurant - I got the same meal as I did the first time (short ribs) ....not as good as the first time, however, the other people in our party enjoyed their mea!s very much. Dessert was awesome! Carrot cake with coconut and apple crisp, all delicious! Our waitress was great. I would recommend Abby Park - love the amiance.

Abby Park has a great menu
Abby Park has a great menu and the food was great as was the ambience. Unfortunately, our server was not as attentive as servers usually are. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The hostess was very friendly, however it was almost 10 minutes before the server even approached our table to take our drink order. She wasn't very friendly with us, however we did note that she was quite friendly to the folks at table next to us. The food runner was smiley and friendly.

Beet salad was the best I've
Beet salad was the best I've had ever. The short rib pizza with horseradish creme was amazing even leftover. I'll definitely go back. Try the shrimp and calamari app.

Great food, good quality, portions, and price. Service was outstanding and the waiter was quite informative. Our table was ready upon arrival with no wait. This restaurant is a hidden gem.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We keep coming back here
We love Abby Park! It's a great overall restaurant. It is as good as any of the Boston restaurants but without the hassle of going into town. Parking is easy. Food is great. Service is efficient. It is very busy on the weekends so make reservations early.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm a fan of Abby Park and just wish I lived closer so I could enjoy it more often. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. Great drinks and beer and wine selection. Pancetta-wrapped-scallops and Truffle fries are a must! They have the basics with a twist and a great selection.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable dinner
We were very pleased with the food. The service was very good.

I made reservations for 6 people and it was quickly confirmed and a phone call in addition...table ready when we arrived but staff moticed we were kind of crowded and offered the choice of a table on the lower level and let us choose which I appreciated..food and service very good...just high decible level as it was a busy Saturday night.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dining at Abbey Park was a great dining experience. The menu had a myriad of choices and one could choose a light bite or complete entree.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always a sure thing
Been many times with single guest and in large groups. Food is always terrific. Nice ambience as well.

Another Great Night at Abby Park!
My husband and I love to celebrate special occasions at Abby Park, and we were glad we did it once again last Friday. First of all, the hostess very genially made sure that we had a table that aligned with our special requests on Open Table. Second of all, our dinners were great: my pork tenderloin, my husband's meat loaf were both delicious and beautiful to look at. We also loved our chopped Caesar Salad, which we split as an appetizer. Third of all, our waiter was helpful and present without hovering overmuch. All in all, we felt attended to but not over-attended to, and not at all rushed. We'll gladly go again and again!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had been wanting to check this place out for some time and finally made it there for a girls night out. We were seated right away (make sure you have reservations!) at a great table... Our server was awesome, food and drinks were amazing. We will definitely be back!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very Good Food in a Nice Setting
We liked our meals at Abby Park a lot. The Miso Salmon was delicious, the Vegan medley was also excellent (if a bit greasy), our salads were incredibly fresh and tasty, and dessert (Coconut Carrot Cake) was a bit on the sweet side for our taste buds but we enjoyed it anyway (also, it was beautifully presented).
The place was busy on a weeknight -- clearly, people come here after work or just to hang out. The one down side is that it can be a bit noisy (though we were in a booth, and that was a bit quieter).
Overall, this was a great dining experience. We'd definitely go back here again.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good 1st experience
730 reservation, sat right away despite a 45 min wait. Good meals,
Would return in future.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place is what you'd expect for an upper scale american bistro in East Milton - dark lighting, ambient classical music, lively bar scene, and totally packed.
We sat in the front window and enjoyed both the food and conversation amongst ourselves - the dining area, while busy was not too loud to chat.
Our food was very good. Perfectly cooked, delicious.
The most notable thing was our waiter Ken. We've not had such great service in a long time. A+

Great Food in East Milton Square
My daughter and I had dinner here when she was in the area for business. It is convenient, just off the SE Expressway N exit. The restaurant ambiance is warm and inviting. We had a view from out table, of the open-kitchen. It was exciting to watch the chef preparing meals. The food was was great and we each enjoyed one of their signature cocktails. We would recommend this place to family and friends.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Romantic and Delicious
I made a reservation at Abby Park for our anniversary and couldn't have been more pleased. I requested a booth on-line realizing that they did not have many booths, and they saved one for us. The staff was very welcoming and Chris our waiter was very attentive without being pushy. He also knew the menu well and provided excellent guidance. The food was outstanding from appetizer to dessert and the wine list offers many reasonably priced fine wines. The kitchen creates unique preparations which is refreshing. The booth allowed for a little quieter experience lending itself to the romantic nature of our evening. I highly recommend Abby Park.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've been here a few times and each time the service gets better and we are never disappointed with our meal selections. I had the scallops and while on the small side, it made up for in taste! He had the rib eye on the specials menu and when he had the left overs for lunch it was still a great meal. Our server was great, no problem substituting certain sides which was a nice option. We saved room for dessert this time, had the chocolate truffle and added a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was a great finish to our meal. It does tend to get a bit noisy from time to time, so I would suggest trying to get a booth if you don't mind the dim (aka romantic) lighting in those seats.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice Brunch at Abby Park
I met a friend at Abby Park for brunch on a Sunday morning. Service was great, attentive but not excessive, and we didn't feel pressured to leave as soon as we finished our meal. Food was very good, not great, but I appreciated that they could make some meals gluten-free! Will be going back for dinner soon!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beet Salad and Linguine Bolognese
Abby Park's beet salad is sublime - a combination of roasted beets garnished with raw beet strings - on a small bed of greens. It was beautiful and delicious. A special, linguine bolognese, was a delight. A moderate, sane portion was rich in flavor. Their executive chef, Tony DeRienzo, makes the menu shine.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dependably good food!
Abby Park is a favorite restaurant of ours because we know that whatever we order will be good. We have our favorites like the crab cake appetizer, which is large enough to have for an entree, and the Abby Park burger, which my husband depends on. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgable and there are always nice wines to choose from. My mother-in-law always orders the ravioli and my daughter and sister-in-law favor the skinny salmon, beet salad and/or grilled asparagus salad. I recently had the kobe beef meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes and portabello mushrooms and gravy--yummy! And there was so much of it that I packed it up and had the rest for dinner the following evening.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Steak was done perfectly-au poirve a little spicy-- sides could have been hotter. excellent caesar salad. People waiting for seating-our table ready on arrival.
