    open address book, file->Import->Text File

    If you exported as vCards then you want to use Import->VCard

    So you should just be able to do File->Import->Text File, select the CSV file and they'll be imported

    Yeah, click ok

    Edit, you can match up the column headings in your file to the appropriate headings in address book.
