The food was very spicy, even though we asked specifically for it not to be. The appetizers were great, but the food left much to be desired. I am glad that I got to experience ethiopian food, but I would not go back.

The food was AWESOME. We absolutely loved it! We devoured everything!!! So good. Can't believe we'd never been before. Definitely coming back. The food was very fresh and very flavorful. I ordered the veggie combo and there wasn't anything on there that I didn't love. You have to go!

We ordered the chicken sambusa pastry, doro wat and yesega wot be-denish. All the food was tasty, especially the doro wat sauce, though the meats were tough. We were disappointed with the service. The waitress was generally complacent and sat reading at the end of the bar most of the time. I told her we were new to this cuisine, but she seemed disinterested in engaging with us. The website describes ritual handwashing before and after the meal, which I had experienced at the one other Ethiopian restaurant I'd been to - hot towels were offered. None of this was provided, tho we did find wet naps in a dish next to the wall after our meal when we were desperate to clean our fingers.

Very nice food, but we're disappointed with the server's lack of enthusiasm for our interest in trying your restaurant. We told her we'd driven a long way, but she didn't seem to care - just do a job and be left to read. Your nice website describing the "experience" is misleading given our experience. We did not feel welcomed.

Keep up the good work. It would be nice if you could serve lunch as well, particularly on Saturdays and Sundays.

Please pay attention when there is a Groupon to reducing the bill accordingly as we didn't receive our discount. (We are not expecting that this can be straightened out at this point,)

About Abyssinian Ethiopian Restaurant

From alongside steaming ceramic coffee pots, gluten-free Ethiopian and Eritrean dishes at Abyssinian Ethiopian Restaurant radiate imported spices. In the golden glow of wall sconces, sautéed beef and chicken morsels marinate in butter, cardamom, and fresh ginger. Patrons sop up savory remnants with warm injera, an East African flatbread made from high-protein teff flour that lets fingers grab food, unlike trying to grab a frustratingly realistic painting of fruit. Meals flanked by complimentary portions of collards parade to tables, and caterers cruise past with brimming portions for meetings and shindigs.
