Great concept for a restaurant: beer centric fine dining. My wife and I both got the tasting menu with the beer pairings. The cicerone personally explained everything. The only problem was that it was like there were two chefs in the kitchen: one who prepared delicious, tasty and well paired dishes, and the other who doused them with salt behind his back. Holy jeez, I've never had such over salted food.

I love tasting menus. They have an ala carte and tasting menu. I went with the tasting menu and beer pairing, which was a nice change from wine pairings. They have an extensive beer list. I want to go back and sample some more from that list. Everything we were served was excellent. The service was outstanding. We had someone bring out each course and describe what it was, followed closely by someone else bringing our beer pairing to describe it and why it was chosen to pair with that particular dish. The menu changes every day, so it gives you a reason to visit often.

Twice now that we have gone here, and twice that we have loved it! My wife and I love beer, so this place really is a shoe in on the beer alone, though what really gels this place for us is really great quality food and preparation, as well as an amazing desert! This is the kind of place where you want to let your server suggest some parings, they have nailed it both time for us. The scallops on the risotto appetizer is truly genius, what a perfectly balanced plate! The fish my wife has was perfectly cooked, and had well seasoned. My lamb was a perfect medium rare, and had a great sauce to go along with it. What has me just go nutty for this place is the Sticky toffee desert! I am not a huge fan of deserts usually, but this once is off the charts for me. I could eat 2 of these all by myself. Simply its a must have!

I have been frequenting Abbot's Cellar since it opened. I've come here with dates, friends, business colleagues, and family - it's an all around great choice for any occasion. The extensive beer list and hipster-ish vibe keep it from feeling stuffy, but oh my, the food. The food is as good as anything you'd experience at a once-a-year, 5-star prixe fixe spot. The beers are from draft, cask, or bottle, and the servers are more than knowledgeable enough to help you select just the right pairing with your meal. My standout menu items include the beet salad, sunchoke soup, steelhead and petrale sole (sans prosciutto), while my carnivorous friends rave about the pork loin.

First time there I was impressed by the service and beer and thought the food was good. Second time I got the paired menu and was blown away by the food and beer. Be sure to ask the chef how to eat each dish...might sound weird, but the recommendations I got from him heightened the overall experience. It's expensive, but the real cost can be in the price of your glass of beer(s). I love the rawness of the interior and as a female always love a place with unlabeled bathrooms and a communal sink area (which by the way is a great custom piece).

My first bone marrow. Kind of weird but tasty. I liked the vibe of the place. The menus hidden in the tables were a nice touch.
