"this restaurant is not a high end eatery.
it is good if you are going to the theater and do not want to spend a lot of time at a restaurant. and/or just enjoying the company AND the food.
staff very friendly and knowledgeable.

"Went to Abby Lane pre-theater - had seen chef Jason Santos on TV - was wondering if the rep was deserved - it ABSOLUTELY is. Loved the vibe in the place, our server was attentive without being pushy and knew the menu well. MUST HAVES - the salmon with avocado-bacon salsa on poblano risotto - and OMG the pan roasted cod - the mussel broth was one of the tastiest ever - the memory of the mussels will stay with me for a long time. We started with the poutine - which was also great - and finished by sharing an order of the doughnuts. We were very impressed also with the prices - very reasonable and a great value given the quality of the meals (even the coffee and cappuccino were reasonably priced). Definitely one to put on the repertoire."

"Went there for a girls night out and we all shared a bottle of wine and appetizers. Food was wonderful - definitely try the truffle mac and cheese. It's out of this world! Kobe sliders are also amazing, as are the brussels sprouts, and onion rings. Nachos could have used a little more cheese but they come on a huge plate and are very crunchy. The place was very crowded and looked like a popular date spot. Atmosphere was lively and service was great."

"This was my second visit to Abby Lane. Both times were in conjunction with a visit to the Wilbur Theater across the street. Wish I could say it was even better than the first, but I'd be lying. Had lipstick on my glass that was not my own and our waitress was not as expedient as she could have been(waited 20 minutes to get the check while she gabbed with fellow employees). Hoping third time will be the charm."

"We had a reservation for 2 and they sat us upstairs next to a very large group. We could not carry on a conversation. The downstairs was empty so I am not sure why they put us upstairs."

"We went prior to Blue Man Group & our server Dylan assured us that we had time. He did an excellent job on timing for us.
Food was pretty good... I had General Gau's Rice Bowl & it was very tasty. Tons of big pieces of fried chicken 'Nuggets' seasoned w a tangy chile/sesame sauce. Could only finish 1/3 of it!
My friends had a Margherita Pizza (loved it), bowl of chowder (devoured) & the Diablo Burger, which I tried... It was delicious.
For a casual, pre-dinner meal, this is a great place to go. A little pricey, but it's Boston!!!

"Abby Lane is a great central location in proximity to downtown and the theatre district, however for a Friday night they were extremely understaffed. Our waitress was visibly frustrated with the high demand and our party (of 6) witnessed her frustration with the quality of service."

"Abby Lane is our favorite pre-theater dinner spot. The service is incredibly fast and friendly, and the portions are generous. Their version of Caesar salad is DIVINE - the best I've had anywhere! (it's got lots of "stuff" in it - roasted Brussels sprouts, chickpeas, coddled eggs, sun-dried tomatoes - which I love) My daughter goes wild for the homemade donuts. And the cocktail menu is eclectic and fun; I thoroughly enjoyed the Copperless Mule. We love Abby Lane!"
