The menu at Aba incorporates a lighter style of cooking with influences from the Mediterranean, including Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, and Greece.

For guests choosing to dine in at the restaurant, there’s an indoor dining room, a multi-level outdoor patio, and a terrace that accommodates up to 130 and lives under the canopy of a 100+-year-old native Heritage Oak.
