What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

Such an interesting contrast: Fine food and excellent, attentive service in such a rustic and low-key setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our Restaurant Week meal. The appetizers were a good size and delicious. The entree - fried chicken in a butter sauce was so lightly fried it was like tempura and the sauce was perfectly spiced to add a real zing to the butter. The desserts were very good and, while not included, it was a great touch to have a smaller, lesser-priced dessert for Restaurant Week. What we loved the most was the decor and table presentation. The hand-made olive and salt dishes were beautiful and the wood decor made us feel at home.

We came here for dinner on a Sunday (holiday weekend). Wow the interior here is so unique! Awesome atmosphere with high ceilings.... and you can't beat the furniture displayed from ABC furniture. We way over ordered... 4 people and lots of plates, but sharing is the way to go.

As far as the menu goes, there is something for everyone. Indulgent fancied-up fried chicken to lightly seasoned tuna sashimi... I recommend it all. Highlight appetizer was the roasted kabocha squash toast, fresh ricotta and apple cider vinegar - so good. The mushrooms, parmesan,oregano and farm egg pizza was another must.

Will definitely be back!

Good food and service with one notable exception. The cabbage dish was overpowered with vinegar without an offset. When this was mentioned to our server the reaction was defensive and dismissive. Other dishes were excellent and we passed this on but her reaction to the dish that was off was also off.

The ambiance was really great! The service was very slow. It also took a very long time for them to get our beverages and food. I recommend the biscuits and jam! Otherwise, the rest of the food was just ok.

the acoustics of the restaurant are so bad that the noise level doesn't allow to have a conversation unless everybody joins in the borderline screaming. Even my teenage children commented on it.

We usually have excellent service, as we come here often. This time it was different. It was an 8 person dinner and I was excited to introduce everyone to the ABC Kitchen we love to experience; however our server did not deliver. He didn’t talk to us about the menu (or great seasonal ingredients/dishes), gave our group no guidance on how to order (everyone except for me was a first timer and we told him this). One of my favorite things about this restaurant was the fact the servers were all so knowledge about the menu, had great personalities, gave great recommendations, and this time was as if our server didn’t want to be there or be bothered with questions. The food was excellent, the service was disappointing

My friend and I explained that we needed to conclude our dining experience in a timely manner , as we were on a pre theater schedule. we informed our helpful hostess re: our needs and she informed our waiter. Although the food was DIVINE, it seemed that the waiter was some how miffed that we could not linger. He was downright RUDE when we asked him to prepare our unfinished bottle of wine for "take away." He explained in detail the steps he would have to take to ready our bottle for travel, to which we responded "Please do that." Our server was not thrilled, but he prepared the bottle. My companion said," well, I guess we won't be opening this bottle ( any time soon)......" our server overheard my companion's (incomplete) statement...and yelled at her from over twenty feet away,"NOT IN HERE, YOU WILL NOT!" we were horrified by his treatment, and although we enjoyed the food, Our server ruined what could have been a great dinner.

Ordered Bibb salad $18 and added salmon $13. The salmon was absolutely perfect. The salad was way overpriced .....Just lettuce leaves and a couple of avocado slices , radishes

Everything was delicious. Service was good

We made a reservation for 9, but we weren't seated until 9:25. The front desk doesn't seem to have a process with people checking in and then going to the bar to get a drink - they lose track and you have to stay close to the hostess stand. I had the fish and it wasn't very good - heavy skin and the sauce/topping didn't enhance the fish flavor, but rather added in a flavor that didn't match. I should have gotten a pasta dish - when I dined here previously I had a much better experience. The restaurant is beautiful.

We enjoyed our brunch at ABC kitchen but our main course was brought to the table while we were still eating our starter course. When we said we are still eating our starter, it made no difference, the waiter still shoved all our food on the little table! We ordered coffee to have with our dessert but had to ask twice for our coffee.......service was rushed maybe to turn the tables over quicker......which was a shame.

Went here for a date night and left very disappointed. The food was great but the service was really bad. The waitress was absent and after we placed our food orders, she never came back until the end. We hoped to order another round of drinks but we couldn't because we were forgotten/ignored. Super disappointed

We’re regulars of ABC kitchen, but we were very disappointed with the time it took to be seated, to have a server come to the table and give us menus, to receive our drink orders, and ultimately to receive the meal.

Our server rarely came to our table.

We’ve tried many items on this menu. The ravioli was by far the WORST it has been. It came out cold and the pasta was hard.

We know upon making a reservation at ABC kitchen, that we may have to wait a while to be seat. It’s a frequent occurrence. This time however, was at 2:30pm in the afternoon, visually not busy at this time, yet we stood and waited 20 minutes to be seated.

I love ABC, we go all the time. The food is outstanding and it has a fun farm to table city chic vibe. My recent experience was less than stellar on the service end, however. We were asked to have our 4 starter plates cleared while there was still plenty of food on each. We happily obliged because we assumed our entrees were ready. We proceeded to wait 30 minutes for our entrees without apology or explanation. Now that we were an hour and a half into our meal we were forced to race through our delicious main courses and then had a wait for the check again. Yet as I was signing and tipping the bill on my place mat another service person came by and asked to take the place mat from under me. Mind you they did not clear everything from the table. I think waiting 2 extra minutes to clear the table ( it was obvious we were trying to leave quickly as 2 in our party had already left to return to work) would have been appropriate. They say all good things come to an end. I hope that is not where one of my long time favorites is headed!

I have eaten at ABC Kitchen several times in the past an enjoyed it thoroughly, but this must have been an off night. We waited 40 minutes for our 8:30 reservation. Not once did any of the hosts come over to us with an update. We had to keep asking and kept being told "just a few more minutes". When we got to the table I asked our waiter if there was something going on that night with staffing so we could understand why the wait was so long, and he just said that the group at our table before us lingered a long time. He did bring us an appetizer compliments of the chef which was appreciated, but I feel the staff should have been more proactive about addressing the extended wait and offering alternatives (at one point there were bar seats available which we would have taken, but since we were being told "just a few minutes" we kept waiting). Or even a round of drinks after a half hour had passed would have been an appropriate gesture. I was also underwhelmed by the entree course. The fried chickent was overly breaded and while the menu indicated it was accompanied by a chili butter sauce, the sauce was way too spicy and overtook all of the other flavors. Disappointing experience.
