Me and my boyfriend enjoy trying new restaurant, so I did a little research on the web and see if there is any new tapas restaurant opened around the lower mainland. And I found a few reviews about Abigail's Party and the pictures on their website is so tempting, so I decided to give it a try.
Me and my boyfriend went there for on his bday. The atmosphere and the server were incredible. The drinks are fine. But the food, is not what I expected..
Drinks, we had the Leeloo and Glamorama. Then we tried the "Curried Scallop Salad", Mussel Hot Pot, spicy prawn and the "Rosemary-Scented Grilled Lamb Sirloin". I had to say, I never had any Lamb Sirloin in my life that is that burnt. Not only it was overly cooked, me n my bf have to slice the burnt meat to be able to eat it (or chew it like gum). We didn't finish the dish 'coz we can't stand the burnt. The Hot Pot, seems to me it was just a bowl of instant rice noodle w/ seafood, I don't think the soup was as said lobster broth base. The most favorable dish was the spicy prawn, cooked perfectly and the sauce is so good, i almost dip myself into it. No comment on the salad, 'coz wasn't something very memorable, it was just a "salad".
My overall experience is that I won't recommend my friends to go there to eat. I think it's a fine place to chill and have a couple of drinks w/ friends. Also, in my opinion, all the reviews are overly rated about this restaurant. I feel so bad that I brough my bf there for bday.
