One of my favorite places in LA, both for eating and for the bar scene. Always lively with great service. I recommend anyone who hasn't been there to check it out.

This place was pretty cool although the drinks were expensive compared to the other numerous bars that were in the 2 block radius. The music was good and fun to dance to. I went during the night time when it was packed with people.

Had a late lunch here, beautiful restaurant with a great menu we had Cesar salad (split it with my daughter) then had appetizers the meatballs and steak quesadillas. I had the watermelon martini and my daughter tried the virgin monitor both really good and refreshing. Our waiter Jose was excellent. I would highly recommend this quaint restaurant

We always stop by the Abbey for a meal when we are in West Hollywood. Located on Robertson, just off Santa Monica Boulevard, this is a great place to eat or just sit and have a few drinks and people watch. We had breakfast there this trip and we both enjoyed our meal. Generous portions, great service. Love this place.

ok spot for lunch (not budget friendly what so ever, ordered water with my meal and they brought me a $6 bottle, i was expecting a free glass). Expensive food ($14 for a wrap with no sides). Cool atmosphere tho. I would recommend coming here more for a night spot, hang with friends and get some drinks. It's food and... More

This place is so much nicer in the daytime. The food is great value and tastes delicious. The staff can't help but make things good. They are friendly and welcoming making the meal a relaxed unhurried time. The vibe is relaxed and less full on than at night. If you need a good value relaxed meal in a cool place... More

I'd never heard of The Abbey, but it had been recommended to my friend so we decided to add it to our list of things to do in LA. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are super friendly. We decided to grab a bite to eat and the food and drinks were great.

Popped into the Abbey for lunch. The service was prompt and friendly in a very relaxed environment. We both chose salads which were very tasty and well priced - USD14. The TMZ tour bus stops in at the Abbey which is interesting and you feel a bit on display but I think that may only be during the day. I... More

We went there for cocktails and ended ordering appetizers which were okay. The ambiance is very friendly if you don't mind being around LGBT people (I didn't, that's why we went there).

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
