My review follows the theme of others— food is good, service is terrible. Not bad, terrible. We went in Mother’s Day for dinner. Tall male waiter seemed angry to be at work, barely spoke to us, and basically ignored us. Table next to us never got their second entree.

Management needs to read these reviews and do something about it!!

I had made a reservation for and outside table. We were seated in the darkest part of the restaurant inside away from everybody totally excluded from the rest of the customers. I mentioned it to my waiter I had made my reservation for outside. So she moved us outside directly into the sun while everyone else that was seated outside has umbrella. There was plenty of tables that had an umbrella that we could have been seated at.

It was Mother’s Day Brunch. We chose Abigaile’s (as 2 mom’s) for Mother’s Day because we have been for brunch before. Today was a buffet that felt like they got all the food from Costco.... a random selection of rock hard bagels, pinwheel sandwich’s, fatty limp bacon and fired rice. Nothing says Mother’s Day like fried rice? We were very disappointed and barley ate a thing. We should have left, but i had to leave a credit card on the reservation and didn’t want to get charged. Seems Abigail’s just wanted to make a fast buck any way it could.

Mother’s Day Fail.

We found the restaurant on line, and were visiting the area for the evening. We were ready for a treat of dinner and specialty drinks. I am a pescatarian and enjoy vegetarian menus, and my husband is an omnivore. The wide range of menu was perfect. Also my husband is now very enamored with the Revenge of the Samaurai drink. He had to have two. The eggplant meatball dish made me happy and my husband especially liked the shrimp and grits. He wasn't as happy with skirt steak. We had mussels too, but the beer used added some bitterness to the broth. The Goody Goody watermelon drink didn't show the watermelon flavors, but that Samaurai drink and the overall experience of dining and adventurous choices will bring us back!

Abigaile is a great place to bring a picky friend! There is something for everyone as they have cuisine from all over. Our food took a little while to come out (it was Saturday night after all) and they brought us some apps on the house! Great service and excellent food. Highly recommend.

Went to Abigaile’s to celebrate a birthday with a party of ten. The server recommended ordering the family style brunch offer that served about 8 different items on multiple small plates. This was more than enough food, and all of it was fantastic. Would definitely go again!

Visiting LA, couldn’t have been happier. Sat at the bar. A Saturday night, there should have been 2 bartenders, it was busy. But the Bartender did a great job, and we felt well taken care of. We’ll be back - food and drinks were delicious !

We went on Easter so they were serving a buffet instead of their regular menu. The selection and quality were great! But being only 2 people, I was a little surprised when the bill had a 20% tip already added in...with room to put more. I know that adding in a tip is normal for larger parties, but never expected it for a party of 2. If you are going to presume a tip, make it the standard 15% and allow me to decide if 20 or more is deserved.

Fun place for beer lovers or a big group. Really loud, so not great for a date. Menu stays similar from year to year. Bold flavors, multiple vegan options, and good cocktails make this an o.k. choice if you're in the neighborhood.

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.

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!

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.
