    The Abbey is an excellent "nice" gathering place for friends convening from disparate parts of the city, and the experience is lovely. The food is very good; we had French toast, a frittata, and the shrimp and grits (which I had seen on the web site and had to ask about, as it wasn't on the printed brunch menu). The coffee was excellent, the service wonderful and friendly.

    Such a neat space! Best salad I’ve had in awhile. Plenty of shrimp added for the cost. Mimosa was made perfectly (didn’t skimp on the champagne added). I do wish they had gluten free bread so I could have had their French toast but other than that everything was lovely.

    We had such a lovely dinner for New Years Eve. Our server was the bar tender - she was attentive and super friendly. The Vesper room was great for a romantic date, but would also be fun for a nice dinner with friends. We will definitely be back.

    Great experience!! Everything was top-notch, from our drinks, to the mussels and frites appetizer, to the scallop special, and the lamb pappardelle. We were seated in the indoor patio, which was comfortable, and great for our early New Year's Eve date night. Our server was very attentive and sweet, as well. Will definitely dine here again!!

    Great atmosphere, but mediocre food. Lunch for 4 without any alcohol totaled $147.00. 2 shared apps, 2 house salad with baked chicken and 2 French dips. Not worth the $

    The food was good as per usual. Service was great. Unfortunately, the menu was limited. They removed the salmon from the menu. No fresh fish as an option. The meatballs and polenta were very tasty. The edamame hummus is a winner.

    We had a very nice brunch in the Parlour Bar. Our waiter, David, was excellent--neither too inattentive or attentive, just right. Our food and drinks were delicious. It was a cold, windy day and the only complaint was that we were a little chilly as we were catching a draft from the room next to our's which abutted the outside. Very cool place--lots of repurposed history. We will definitely return!

    An unexpectedly good place for a Sunday brunch. The food selections were great, and the ambiance (even with a 2 year old granddaughter) was very nice. Even though it was a bar / tavern it felt very comfortable for a family brunch. We saw on the website that high chairs are not available, so bring a booster seat.

    I’ve always enjoyed Abbey. This time was the worst experience I’ve had. Poor communication between the kitchen and wait staff… consistent broken promises of “your food is up next”. We never got our food after 1.5 hours ! Server not at fault. Manager unnecessarily rude. Won’t return due to manager’s behavior.

    My wife and our adult son enjoyed a nice meal. (Patty and I are 63, Jared, 26, so you get a nice generational range here.) Good drinks; the dinners of mac & cheese with bacon, burger with apple butter and bacon (among other things, on a brioche bun) and meatballs with cheese (no bacon) all got thumbs up. Its a real interesting place, with the restaurant area probably being the least intriguing as the other two: a separate main bar area and a good size, comfy seats coffee bar area. That's not meant as a put down; the other two areas are just that intriguing/interesting. A third bar is part of the restaurant piece.

    Great pierogis features! I’ve had meatballs before, but these were AMAZING, artisan meatballs! Loved the pierogies with the duck confit, which was a true test since I typically prefer classic church-lady style with my pierogies. Also, the fig cake was to die for!
