What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

The service is friendly but they make it very obvious that they want you to eat quickly AND leave quickly. The crab toast is everything people say it is. Wonderful. The fish sandwich is completely unseasoned and beyond bland. Embarrassingly so. Fries were also meh. If I ever came back, I would try the pizzas and pasta. The room and table settings are gorgeous. For the price, I expected the food to be a bit better and the service to be less aggressive about getting you in and out in an hour. I have worked in restaurants. I understand that tables need to turn but NOT EVERY SINGLE TABLE is going to eat and leave in 60 minutes so please back off and learn to read the table. We had apps, entrees, sides, wine, dessert and coffee. It was not a business lunch. It was friends from out of town catching up. We spent plenty of money so maybe chill with trying to turn our table.

The food was good but the staff was not accommodating or friendly- despite previous phone calls and in person requests for the evening to be special for a close friend’s birthday. The hostesses were apathetic toward my requests and the waiters were lackadaisical throughout the meal.

I don't know if it is for creating a romantic atmosphere, but it is so dark that we cannot read the menu comfily. Food is just ok. Considering the price, I won't recommend it to others.

Service was terrible. Took 25 minutes to get soup and beet appetizer. Another 15 to get entree. We ordered to price fixed meal which includes dessert. I had to go find the hostess to get the check. We still had not gotten our dessert that we paid for. I asked if we could substitute the cookie dessert for the one we ordered because I had to leave. They then charged me an extra ten dollars for the cookies. That took another ten minutes to sort out. The cookies were all broken when I opened the box. Terrible experience.

The portion of my meal I received was shockingly small. I mentioned this to the waitress, someone else came over and said she would talk to the chef. I waited, she came back, chef said pieces were there but it was clear the portion was way small. I was not immediately offered a new dish with a solid portion. It was very strange. I was waiting and was just so frustrated I just ate my tiny (but tasty) portion, wondering what it would have been like to have a true $34 portion. They did take the dish off the bill, and they gave me a glass of wine. So money wise, not out anything. Just did not feel the manager did her job in making me feel like me leaving full and content was a priority. I think turning the table was the priority.

Tables for 2 were on top of each other. The couple next to us were not loud but we could hear them clearly throughout our entire meal. There was enough free space for our tables to be separated by at least three feet.
Most importantly however... everything we ordered was delicious!

The food is fantastic! You can definitely taste the farm-to-table freshness with every bite!

We had:
crab toast with lemon aioli: absolutely amazing, a MUST-try!

roast carrot and avocado salad: very fresh and delicious

Whole wheat pizza with mushrooms, parmesan,oreganoand farm egg: an interesting take on pizza. The flavors all come together nicely.

black sea bass with chilies and herbs, baby market potatoes and spinach: very flavorful and light. An excellent entree if you plan to go heavy on the appetizers/dessert.

blueberry pie with goat milk ice cream, lavender: delicious! My favorite dessert of the evening! It goes perfectly with the goats milk ice cream's tartness.

chocolate cake (malted chocolate ganache, toasted marshmallow icing): a good option for those that don't like overly sweet things. Not overly "chocolatey" either.

salted caramel ice cream sundae (candied peanuts & popcorn, whipped cream,
hot fudge): It was very good, but not special. I'm sure you can find a variation somewhere else just as good.

The ambiance was excellent! It's a little dark, so keep that in mind. I would describe the decore as "rustic farmhouse meets urban metropolis".

The attention to detail and service from the staff was excellent. We were very well-taken care of. I highly recommend ABC Kitchen!

Another great experience. While i found the salad quite small for $16, the sea bass and salmon were outstanding. The ambiance is great with dim lighting, candles and great R&b music. Service was excellent. Dessert was bomb-the caramel popcorn hot fudge sundae is a MUST. Will go back again and again. One of my fav places to eat!

I always want to eat excellent food, but when I go out, the total experience counts. The food was very good. That I prefer that my choices truly are hot vs warmish, is relatively minor. When I'm ready for the check, I don't want to have to search for the waiter. We should have warned him that we had tickets to a concert. For the size of the space and its apparent popularity, the noise level was better than expected. I'll be back.

ABC is beautiful and I appreciate the locally driven menu, but with high expectations for the food at its price, my husband and I were underwhelmed as a whole. The carrots, and sourdough bread and desserts were fantastic, and service was sufficient, though likely would not venture there again for a full meal.

I ordered a plate for my 8 year old son with restriction on gluten and lactose. They made the adjustment as requested, however the meal came with lots of pepper. Unbelievable how they could serve such a child. In turn, I ordered a pizza for my daughter who was burned, showing poor quality in the elaboration. Exaggerated delay to serve drinks. Exchanges of waiters during the service. Anyway, I do not recommend it.
