    Both steaks were undercooked. One had to be sent back. Kitchen made a mistake and brought ribeye when a filet was ordered. Brought wrong side. Manager offered a free shrimp cocktail. No discount in bill. Server never apologized and rarely checked on us. Food was as good as any chain restaurant.

    Our favorite Steak House in Boston, we went to Celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary, we had our reception at Abe and Louies the year before. Steak was incredible, sides - delicious as always. We did not like the change in the style of Crab Cake they have made as well as changing the Abe & Louies salad. To us the original styles were the best. We were seated at one of the tables for two in the bar along the walkway to the kitchen and since it was game 7 of the Celtics Playoffs the bar was loud, not our favorite spot to sit. Waitress was very attentive, felt awful that they did not tell her it was our Anniversary and was very apologetic and gave us an absolutely delicious piece of chocolate cake and ice cream to take home, Manager came over and apologized as well and has a glass of champagne brought over. All unexpected and very nice.

    Food and service were wonderful. It tends to be a little noisy but no more than expected. Great overall experience. Worth the price and I’d dine with them again.

    We’ve been to Abe & Louie’s many times, and we can always count on a superior dining experience. The entrees are well prepared and the ingredients are high quality. The service is efficient and friendly and the atmosphere and location is ideal for enjoying an afternoon in town. Abe & Louie’s continues to exceed expectations. We’ll be back!

    Early lunch celebrating my son's graduation. The service was excellent! The appetizers were very good and 3 of the 6 meals were good. The 3 who ordered salads were OK. Mine was drenched in dressing and I had to send it back. The lobster on the salad was good, the olives were from a can. I couldn't justify going back again for a $600 lunch.

    The seafood was very fresh and the portions were quite adequate. The prices on wine were competitive with other establishments that I’m familiar with in New York. The location in Boston was very convenient. The Food prices were also reasonable. There is a vibrant bar and The atmosphere, overall, was rather pleasant.

    What a wonderful evening at Abe and Louie’s! Everything from start to finish was pure perfection!! The waiter was amazing!! He truly took care of us in every way - making great recommendations and providing fantastic service! One of the best Cosmos ever! Steaks were perfectly cooked, sides were amazing! It was our first time there celebrating my husband’s 60 birthday with our girls and their fiancés. It definitely will not be our last! Thank you for making our evening so special.

    From the time we walked in we immediate the service is top level. From the Valet, Host Staff, Server, and several assistants, to the manager that stopped by our table. The food is an absolute, but when coupled with five star service, that's magic. We had an 8 top table and although it was a little crammed, we originally asked for a 7 top and they accommodated us at the last minute to add 1. So being a little crammed was no big deal at all. Again, great service outweighs most minor negatives in any dinning experience

    A wonderful dining experience! Our server was attentive and there was no lag time between courses. Not only were the sides and appetizer (oysters Rockefeller, lobster mac and cheese, and creamed spinach) absolutely delicious - much better than comparable steakhouses, but our steaks were cooked PERFECTLY!! We were celebrating our anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The complimentary dessert was just the icing on the cake!

    This my first time dining at Abe & Louie’s. I’ve heard great things about the restaurant and was excited to celebrate Mother’s Day at the restaurant. I was disappointed with how my steak was cooked. I ordered a tomahawk steak medium 40oz. What was brought to the table was not 40oz and the temperature was incorrect. Looked more like 20oz and it was cooked medium rare instead of medium. To top it off the 20oz steak was mostly fat.

    Second time here and it was outstanding again. A+ service and such a great vibe. Celebrated Mother’s Day with our two college kids and everyone loved what they ordered! The lobster dumplings are unique and delicious, and the hash brown and green bean sides are so good. We had the Australian Wagyu and the prime filets-all perfect - as was the pork chop our son ordered. And the skillet cookie was a huge hit for dessert. We can’t wait to dine here again!

    Have not been in a while. Service was excellent as always, food was good but way way over priced. $135.00 for 12oz bone in Filet Mignon???? Now I can understand why the place was not packed on Mother’s Day. Will go else where next time.

    Our server Alain was miserable and ruined our night when we were celebrating our son’s 4th birthday. Our Caesar salad app took WAY too long to come out and when it did, it wasn’t even cut up, it was huge pieces of romaine lettuce leaves w some dressing, cheese and croutons on top. We e eaten here hundreds of times and always get the Caesar salad. It’s NEVER served this way. We didn’t even get the chocolate cake for our 4 year olds birthday (that we have gotten on every single other celebratory visit) Alain had a bad attitude and didn’t attempt to hide it. Didn’t even give us the specials. We’ll never return.
