Abacus: "Five Star Fabulousness!!!" Dallas Restaurant Tip by brwgrl

Dallas Restaurants: 252 reviews and 234 photos

Abacus is billed as contemporary global cuisine and might be considered neuvo American. The feel when you walk in the door is a modern feel that, when you look more closely, could reflect more of the clean lines and muted colours of the modern Arts and Crafts period. The dining room is open yet cozy in the way the booths and tables are arranged. For most of the evening I didn't know there was anyone else in the restaurant even though we were not the only table it sure felt intimate and comfortable.

Our service was fabulous and our server did a great job at coming to the table at just the right time. She was knowledeable and allowed us to pick and choose whatever we wanted.

Favorite Dish: The food at Abacus was incredible. I have to rate it one of the top 3 meals I've had in my life. Recognize that this includes some pre-Katrina New Orleans meals at places like Nola's, Gautreau's, Galatoire's, & Brennan's. Everything was spot-on and had great flavour, presentation and concepts.
