    Arguably one of the best dining experiences of my life. The server was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. The vibe was subtle, romantic, smooth, and relaxing. Each course was the perfect combination of balancing flavors and textures. Cocktail was delicious. Really nothing bad to say at all. If I’m ever back in Augusta, Abel Brown is a must-return-to for me.

    I believe our server’s name was Nataly. She is top tier. She quietly listened, was very attentive and observant as she walked around and introduced herself to our table. She was quite strategic when introducing food recommendations but was very subtle. She was selling without selling. Impressive. Definitely standout services all around and the food was incredible.

    Caught an early reservation to celebrate my wife’s accomplishment at AU. Wonderful service, excellent food and menu (as always), and good ambiance. My only complaint is that there isn’t more Abel Browns around Evans! We will be back again!

    Several issues with the food service. Wrong appetizer brought. The dinner special was out of stock. 2 different liquors in the bar were out of stock. Issues with the lights being turned up and down all night. Long waits for food to be brought to table. Underwhelmed

    We had just been cancelled on at Cucina502 at the last minute and were feeling down and upset (9:00pm) looking for a spot to eat. Luckily we were able to book last minute at Abel Brown's last minute at 9:30pm. When we walked in the door at AB we were welcomed with a huge smile by their hostess, sat at a table... the restaurant was busy and lively with tons of laughter around us. Great vibes. Our waitress was in training and did an amazing job making us feel welcome and remembering all the amazing specials and features. Our drinks, apps (smoked salmon and pickled shrimp) and mains (shrimp and grits + roasted chicken) were delicious and perfectly cooked. Service was incredible, food tasty, vibes on point - we cannot wait to go back and will recommend to all our business colleagues visiting Augusta!
