The service was slow and terrible, even though the restaurant was empty. Our orders came out minutes apart, probably 10 minutes between the first and last entree. We specifically mentioned we had a birthday in the reservation and at the restaurant, but the server didn’t ask about desert.

Would definitely recommend this place! Food was great, ambiance was great (we went on a Monday at 6 and the place was empty!?). Our waiter was great - explained all the specials, even those on other days, and gave us a tour of their upper levels. We were celebrating a birthday, so they brought a great dessert with a candle. Only one little thing was he didn't offer the rest of us dessert, so not sure what else, if anything they had.

The food is tantalizing to your tastebuds! Will return and try other menu items. Shared Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and eggplant meatballs. Each dish was well seasoned and was delivered to the table quickly. The only downside was the noise level. Large tables of noisy people and loud music. Will dine outside next time!

Food and atmosphere is great. We had a fairly early reservation (6:15p) and it wasn't overly crowded when we arrived. Our drinks and 2 of the3 dishes we ordered came quickly. But once it became crowded a little later into our dinner, our 3rd dish never came out and our waiter disappeared. He apologized but I expect more from this place. A group of girls next to us actually got up and left because no one ever came by to take their orders! Need to get more servers after 7pm on a Saturday night...annoying.

Absolutely love this place. We order about 6 or 7 dishes to share and everything was delicious. Short rib soft and yummy, fantastic Asian noodle dish, skirt steak, cheese platter, Brussels, and salmon all outstanding. Lots of space between tables do you don’t feel crowded. Good music with fun atmosphere.

Great restaurant all around. Can’t believe it took me this long to find it. Nothing on the pier nearby comes close, and that’s before you go to the outdoor upper deck bar.

Enjoy the ambiance, the service and brews! The noise level was very, making it available to communicate easy! My meal was great. Others in party stated they enjoy their meals but after tasting others they stated that they wish to ordered something else that they had tasted. Appetizers were fantastic!

The place and music is very cool! The food wasn’t anything to rave about. The frittata was bland and the ‘special’ drinks were not very good.

I would go back for drinks and apps.

Beautiful space, delicious food and excellent service. Not cheap if you’re looking for value. Brussels sprouts were yummy and crispy. I loved the ground lamb special and my friend loved the eggplant burgers. Cocktails are different and delicious. Only complaint — and hate to say anything negative— was the staff filling water glasses incessantly and making conversation each time to the point where they were disturbing our conversation. The place was surprisingly empty so I guess we got all their attention

Abigaile is fantastic. The food was amazing, the drinks were great, ambiance was inviting and fun, and service was friendly and quick. The one area I regret is that they messed up our reservation, and told us we’d have to wait 30 minutes for a table. We ended up finding seats at the bar and enjoyed our time there

I have always loved this place. I have recommended it, been here on dates, and come just to enjoy it when I happen to be in Hermosa. This time was no different, aside from the long wait I had to endure even though I had a reservation at 8pm, was here on time, and many people who came after me with no reservation were seated promptly. The hostess was wonderful and it was not her fault, but it was a little cold out and I was hungry and wanted a drink and don't think I should have had to wait for that long considering I took the time to make the reservations. Aside from that, the service was great, the drinks were great, the ambiance was great, and everything else was on par with what I expect from your restaurant, so thank you.

We had a very nice dinner and experience at Abigail. The food was excellent. Everything we had was top notch. For us, though, ir was a little bit loud. It was tough to hear each other chat at the table. The service was good but a little spotty. We had drink and nachos at the bar before we sat at our table. The cocktail was excellent and my husband enjoyed a unique beer. We will definitely go back.

I came there for New Year’s Eve. It was $68 for buffet dinner but I certainly did not eat $68 worth of food , and our server was kind of rude. The only thing that was good tasting was the taco bar. A lot of food was running out every time I went to get something so I only had like one and a half plates.

This restaurant was gorgeous and the staff was extremely friendly. The food was just okay - nothing to write home about. We had the tempura green beans, grilled broccollini, salmon poke, walnut shrimp, and cauliflower wings. The shrimp was the best plate. Everything else was honestly a little bland, especially the poke.

One thing that is great about this place (and a bunch of other restaurants in that neighborhood) is that you can purchase wine at Uncorked across the street, and you won’t have to pay a corkage fee. It’s a really great deal since the wine at Abigaile is extremely pricy.

The restaurant serves tapas. The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. However, some of the dishes took overly long to prepare and the quality was inconsistent. The servers provided outstanding service. The wines were over priced.

Unfortunelty Abigaile has gone down hill compared to the last few years we’ve been. It was the Holidays, and not that we expect Holiday music but they were blaring the hip hop station like it was totally normal at 6pm on a Wednesday before Christmas. Additionally the prime rib was strangely prepared and covered up with greens on a very small severing plate. Over priced and not worth the money any more. Go to the pier instead!

I used to eat at Abigails a lot when it first opened. It was quite good, with some outstanding things on the menu. The last two times I have eaten here, the food was just not good. The last time I ate here the service was also terrible. It took forever to get a drink - we had to flag someone down finally - and same when we wanted to order food. There seemed to be enough staff and it was not that busy. The staff was still pleasant enough, and the cheese balls are always good, but I won't be eating here again.

When our large party didn't opt for the "Family Style" menu, the service level declined. We were only brought 3 food menus for a party of 10, and could feel the tension between us and the wait staff. The food is good and the atmosphere is fun, but I wish the service had been a little more friendly.
