The worse restaurant I have been to in the last 4 decades. Awful food, awful service, greatly over priced, even if the food was good, which it is not! I had Asian crispy chicken appetizer for $15. took 2 bites and left the rest. I next had a $28 hamburger, allegedly rare. Left 3 quarters. McDonalds is much better. I don't happen to be Jewish let lone Kosher so I have no way to compare it, but there has to be much better Kosher restaurants in New York. On top of everything my friend sent back the flounder as inedible and requested any other fish. She got Salmon, which was edible. She checked the bill and of course I got charged for both dishes. We called the manager who agreed to remove the Salmon charge. Now I have 2 charges from the restaurant. One for $287 and another one for $292. I can't call them because I can't control myself. Stay away.

The menu for lunch is a nice collection of high-end economical selections. The atmosphere is conductive to a professional environment. It appears the menu has been updated, yet traditional choices remain as well.

I went to this place for lunch with my staff. For the price, the food was just okay, the selection was okay, and the ambiance was marginal. I probably will never go back to this place again unless it was my only option in the area.

Took my wife there for her 40th birthday and had a great time. The food arrived quickly, both the appetizers and the entree were delicious, water was re-filled frequently, and even though we were too full for a real dessert, the waiter gave us a small brownie with a candle in it at no charge. Will return as often as we can justify the expense.

It's been pointed out to me that kosher establishments tend to turn a deaf ear to customer requests/complaints... the reason attributed to the demanding clientele.

I was told that our party couldn't switch to a certain table - because it was a VIP table. That comment didn't make me feel welcome or wanted. Suggested the employee not say that - because it hurt my feelings.

I would have liked to feel appreciated as a customer - instead felt like a number in a bakery line.... NEXT.

It was my wifes birthday and we did a show and Abigails! As I live in Israel, this was my first time there (recommended by family) and we were so pleased with everything. The ambiance was romantic and elegant, the waiter, Richard was professional, knowledgeable, very helpful and doted over us making us feel spoiled! The food was excellent, and we have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world. My wife had the rib steak which was grilled to perfection and I savoured the smoked short ribs, something I have not had the pleasure of eating in quite a while. Our greatest surprise was eating the Creme Brule that was Pareve (no dairy)! it was based on coconut milk and it was absolutely delicious. Aside from a very slight hint of coconut, you would never know that this creme brule was not made with heavy cream.

Diverse menu; from sushi to deli to mains. Kosher restaurant in the heart of the garment district has been doing it right for many years. While the decor shows the years, the waiters are friendly and competent. They will let you dine or get you out on time for your show. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. Even with such diversity in choice the food is very good.

The food is always solid--i love the chili, popcorn chicken, pastrami on whole wheat, burger, jack daniels steak and anything they ever do with duck. But...service is usually pretty poor and if you dont order by 1215, you're in store for a long wait

I brought some Kosher-eating colleagues from Israel. Had they not had a dietary restriction, I would have gone to one of NYC's amazing restaurants, but Kosher and location were priorities. The servers tried hard, but seemed not to be well trained by management. The food itself was underwhelming at the prices charged. I suppose they're taking advantage of the kosher thing in NYC.

Location is right near Times Square, the heart of Manhattan. Even with high energy Times Square, you can escape the noise and energy for a quiet meal in a sedate, quiet spot. Noise level is low so intimate conversations are allowed -or if a part go ahead and sing Happy Birthday. The menu selection (meat) is diverse. Meals come out in timely fashion and are good.

This is a great place to have a meal for any occassion but be prepared to pay a premium price.

Not the best kosher food around but solid and a good value. We had the Jack Daniels steak which was cooked to perfection, the 32 oz rib eye that was huge and delicious to the last bite. Appetizers--popcorn chicken, veggie soup and chili wer all great. Dessert was a little blah--ice cream was crystalline like it has been frozen and re-frozen over and over. Service was very slow but when the waiter was overmatched, the maitre'd and biz manager took over. Solid meal, very good value. Menu's probably a little too extensive with different types of cuisine.

My husband and I have been going to Abigael's for years. Despite all the new, trendy restaurants that have opened over the years, we stayed loyal because the food was good, the service was good and it was a quiet place to enjoy a nice night out. But over the last 6-9 months, things have been changing. The menu quality has been cheapened, but the prices have gone up. The food is simply not up to the impeccable standard that we have come to expect. What a shame.

We were very pleased with our celebration at Abigail's. We chose Abigail's because of a kosher menu that included both meat and fish and because of its midtown location. We celebrated a college graduation and a birthday. We even ordered a birthday cake. The food really surpassed our expectations. I loved the cauliflower soup. My son said his salmon was the best he has eaten. The service was wonderful.
The restaurant was downstairs, but an elevator was available.
No complaints.

This is an excellent place for kosher dining just south of Times Square, with great quality food whether you eat kosher or not. Prices are comparable to other fine restaurants. There is a less formal dining area on the street level with views of passersby on Broadway, but we prefer the more formal dining downstairs with no view at all. Service is always impeccible. Advice: Join their birthday club to get an (almost) free entree within a week of your birthday.
