Recommend: Hanger Steak Scallops Gnocchi If you go with a date or another person it is wise to get 3-4 dishes and split them. I personally am not a big gnocchi fan but the other person in my party loved it and said it was delicious. The hanger steak and scallops are packed with flavor. Keep in mind these are... More

Abigail Street is one of the great new restaurants in trendy Over-the-Rhine just north of Cincinnati. It makes great use of the lovely old architecture contrasting it with modern design. We started with a good sparkling rose and ricotta with local honey and rosemary on fantastic local grilled bread. Must have! We followed with shared gnocchi with asparagus and mushrooms... More

I've been here before, but took three colleagues who are in town for work this week and scored big points with all of them. The menu is mostly "small dishes", ideal for sharing, and creative. The four of us shared six dishes and it was a great meal, served with a variety of wines by the glass, including several offered... More

This tiny restaurant was crowded and loud. We were immediately seated at the bar and the service was good. The food changes seasonally. The food we ate (plates featuring steak, potatoes, beets and scallops) were delicious. I would not return to this restaurant simply because I do not care for Mediterranean food. The upscale scene this restaurant provided is not... More

Hubby and I went for an early dinner. First tapa was the octopus with garbanzo beans. This was our favorite dish and was a very tender and flavorful rendition of a tricky seafood. Next was the flat iron steak with roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. This was a smokey and tender cut of meat with a generous portion of veggies.... More

It's no secret that OTR is booming lately in downtown Cincinnati. There are a lot of great, innovative restaurants, but Abigail Street stands out as one of the best. It has many small plates that you can share with others and has a great, cozy atmosphere. The local ricotta and honey was AMAZING. My husband loved their lamb burgers and... More

Really enjoyed our meal at Abigail Street this weekend. We were there on a night they were serving Paella and I have to say it is one of the best I've had. In addition to the Paella the other small plate options were all wonderful. The setting is great. Our group of four sat at the bar height tables and... More
