Abacus Ratings and Reviews
I loved Abacus. We went for my husband's birthday and had a lovely time. The wait staff is friendly and very professional. They kept the water and wine glasses full all evening. The food is amazing. I had the lobster shooters - excellent. The sushi is fresh and flavorful. Main course was prepared perfectly and the dessert was wonderful. Bar service was quick and they know how to make a perfect martini.
I rarely write reviews, even though I should more often. However, I was so underwhelmed by my final Abacus experience that I am compelled to say something.
The lobster shooters were amazing as always. Bread is great as well. Beyond that the entire meal was simply disappointing. Wanting to eat light before a local concert, we opted to choose from the sushi and small plate section of the menu.
I ordered the Picasso roll. I eat sushi at least twice weekly and have never had it served with diced onions. The roll was absolutely covered in them. I tried to brush them off, however at that point the roll was saturated with the flavor of onions. What a shameful waste of fresh fish.
My date chose the Cheese Tray . It came with 3 tiny pieces of cheese and a small dollop of soft cheese along with 4 crackers that looked and tasted to be made of some peculiar mix with the consistency of a composite material. Then sprinkled on the plate were a few apricot bites and nuts that literally looked and tasted like trail mix from Costco. Not only was the quality very poor, the $28 price was out of line. For comparison, I’d refer to cheese tray at Rise as an excellent value and tasty choice.
Although the staff were welcoming and are always gracious, I would save your hard earned money. Instead spend it at one of the many other amazing culinary treasures we have here in Dallas.
We went for Valentine's Day and they had a pre-purposed menu 4-course dining experience. It was perfect! Timing of the courses was spot on and the food and drinks were spot on. Great place for special occasions. Ambiance and decor was very relaxing and romantic. Pricey but worth it!
Outstanding menu with almost every choice being highly desirable.
The execution was extremely good. Great balance of flavors, beautifully presented, and great service.
We knew we were presenting the kitchen with a challenge given the dietary restrictions, yet the server made the whole experience his problem, and it all was super easy.
They even produced a dessert that was not on the menu without us asking, simply to accommodate the dietary restrictions. It is very rare that it is ever this easy.
Just fantastic food and impeccable service. There are plenty of Dallas restaurants with great food, but the entire staff was so impressive. Valet, front desk, coat check, and especially our waiter. This is as close to perfect restaurant service I have experienced since Gary Danko's in the SFO Bay Area.
I have visited Abacus numerous times and have always been very happy that I did. The service is always most attentive but not intrusive and the food is exceptional. The Lobster shooters are a must to begin with and I have tried many other entrees and all were beautifully presented and awesome to taste. I had the buffalo this last visit and it was unbelievably tender and delicious.
I have been here many times over the years and this time the food was back to being 5 star and was top knotch. The service on the other hand was just okay. When we are waiting for 15-20 minutes to get the first drinks that is way to long. The waiter would just disappear on us when we wanted more drinks. I love the food so I will be back but service needs to improve.
Just a note we had 5 business dinners this week and service was bad at 4 out of 5. I know know what was up with Dallas this trip.
Lobster shooters always on point! We had scallops & buffalo filet - cooked to perfection & all flavors on point & well balanced. We usually visit here for special occasions but decided this year to make it a regular monthly standby ..... January check! Here comes February:)
In town for business and this was recommended. Staff was extremely attentive to every detail. We tried the 5 course tasting menu so that the chef could surprise us and he did not disappoint. Extensive wine list and creative cocktails - something for everyone. The entire experience was a total delight.
Excellent experience as usual. The dishes are a work of art an taste just as good as they look. I had the duck breast and it was magnificent. My wife had the Cornish game hen and it had an amazing flavor. One of our favorite places to visit when we are in Dallas.
My experience at Abacus was absolutely phenomenal! The ambiance & atmosphere was excellent, the food was outstanding, and the wait staff was very polite and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place for a romantic date, special occasion such as a birthday/anniversary, or for a classy and exquisite meal. I cannot recommend the red velvet dessert enough!
Our waiter was awkward and confused. His descriptions of the entree’s were not appealing. We could have overlooked that had the food been good. Scallops and pork belly was nothing special as our app. We made ourselves eat it because we were starving and everything on the menu was WAY overpriced for the quality and flavor! The pumpkin ravioli was terrible...and we typically love pumpkin ravioli. The fish had no flavor..the beef had no flavor...the scallops had no flavor! Seriously!...we tried to help these dishes out with salt and pepper but they were still bland! The side of risotto was okay and the side of Brussels sprouts were swimming in soy sauce. We left most of our food on the plates. The best part of the meal was the bread basket. $400 later we were very disappointed!:(
It was our Christmas dinner. The food was excellent as it always is. Unfortunately, our server was either too busy or distracted. It was obvious that the larger table took priority. Drinks, food were late. My wife didn’t get her wine until the middle of the main course.
I'm a fan of Abacus and have been for years.
Under the guidance of Chef Chris Patrick the restaurant continues to maintain a tradition of excellence.
We came to begin our holiday celebrations with a wonderful meal, and did not leave disappointed.
The tasting menu was superb, the appetizers were spot on, the desserts were just the right touch.
I look forward to returning soon.
