Abacus Ratings and Reviews
We went here for my fiancé’s birthday. The food was outstanding, but the waiter was hardly around. We wanted to order a bottle of wine and another cocktail but couldn’t ever get the waiter’s attention. He seemed to realize near the end that he neglected us and gave us a free glass of wine. However it is a shame to go to this nice of a restaurant and feel neglected due to your age. (We are 25 and 23 but probably look a little younger).
As always Abacus brought the best of the best for gourmet fare! We had a fantastic time, great drinks, superb dining and great staff.
We only wish the Chef's sampler menu tonight had less fish dishes. All in all we will always come back and bring friends to enjoy the experience with us
I appreciate the manager admitting that our ticket was lost by the kitchen (after we waited over 40 minutes between our appetizer and dinner courses and had to cancel after dinner plans), but I wasn’t thrilled at the resolution of giving us a free dessert that we didn’t even get to select. When you are paying over $400 for dinner and your order is forgotten, you expect a slightly grander accommodation for the inconvenience.
First time here on a busy Saturday night. The service was much slower than usual and food came out less than warm. My dish was not cooked as I had asked, and they brought it back promptly.
Not their best effort, but will still come back on less busy nights because I like the food.
i used to love this restaurant...it has been one of my favorites for years. the menu has really changed alot and there is much more focus on sushi vs the innovative entrees that i have grown to love over the years (i think i have been going for over 15 years!). the menu style now is seems to be more shock and awe...you will be shocked at what Abacus wants to charge for some things. just my 2cents on one of my former faves
My husband and I chose this restaurant for our anniversary and chose the tasting menu without looking at the menu. We were very pleased with the service and most of all the food. I would recommend to anyone and we will visit again very soon. We chose the wine pairing as well which was a lot of wine so keep that in mind for driving purposes.
I really enjoyed it. The experience felt like a dream. The service was very nice and hospitable. The food was amazing and different from anything I have had before. The noise level was medium and the only negative thing I could even say is that it was a little bit too dark in the room.
I have been a fan of Abacus for many years. I thought the food and ambiance was outstanding. My husband and I celebrated many occasions there. I was disappointed on this visit. I didn't think the food was up to par. We were a party of six and only a few of us liked the meal. I hope they improve and reach the former to level of excellence.
What a wonderful evening at the Abacus. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and looking for something special. They certainly delivered a memorable meal and evening. First, the service was fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable without being intrusive. Our server helped with the wine selections and I was so pleased with his suggestions. The food was in a class of its own. I would say it's what most high-end chefs hope to achieve, but rarely do. Of course we had to start with the lobster shooters. It's been about 10-years since I last tried them and they were as delicious as I remembered. I loved the Caesar salad with the salty bits of anchovies filets. I thought the addition of small ringlets of butternut squash was genius as it added a complementary sweet contrast to the salty fish. My hubby had the citrus salmon and said it was the best salmon he had ever tasted. I had the lamb loin and it was simply delicious. It was served on a bed of cauliflower purée that was deliciously velvety and smooth. Unfortunately, we were too full to try desserts, but the offerings on the menu sounded amazing. I am so often disappointed with the hype about some new restaurant or chef, but this place delivers. No wonder they have been in business almost 20-years and still pack the house. If you can't tell, I loved this place.
Wow! That’s all I can say! 2nd time this month and going back soon! What an amazing experience! All the food was incredible! Took a large group ! Everyone was blown away by service and food! Thanks Abacus! We will be back soon!
Don’t miss this place if you in Dallas and want a incredible dining experience!
Loved the ambiance and decor of Abacus. Upscale, cool vibe but not stuffy. Bacon flight came recommended but was not really worth it. Bacon was average and nothing special, but calling it a flight made it more enticing. Waiter was great, treated us to a lobster shooter and anniversary dessert on the house. The buffalo tenderloin was very good and the laughing bird shrimp dish had interesting flavors but was a bit chintsy since the shrimp was chopped into little pieces like popcorn shrimp. Breads were delicious!
There are so many fabulous restaurants in Dallas, I would not recommend Abacus. However, if you go, then I highly recommend the lobster shooters and the bacon wrap pork. Both we're excellent! Service was slow and the opah was way over cooked and over seasoned.
Abacus remains one of the better dining options in Dallas. The food is creatively prepared and is very good. Sushi is very good; choices between fish, steaks, buffalo and other choices. Wine list is outstanding, but very very pricey. Great for a special night out, celebrating a special event or business dinner.
With Ken, our waiter, providing the service, and Chris Patrick in the kitchen, the celebratory evening was superb. Started with the signature shooters and a cocktail. Being less ravenous tonight we shared a Caesar salad and succulent venison over greens and celeriac. The Pomerol wine from SaintAnne was a delightful fragrant Bordeaux accompanying the coffee basted venison. Not to be missed, we enjoyed a blood orange ice and Thai Tea ice cream
