Abe and Louie's Boston Ratings and Reviews

Abe & Louie's is a Boston classic. Look is clubby and atmosphere energetic. Bread to start is heavenly, steaks were great, brussel sprouts are a favorite, and everyone loved the creme brulee. Sea bass was cooked perfectly, but the tomato "salsa" was more like a chunky artichoke and olive tapenade and very strong for a mild fish. Lamb was seasoned well and sweet potato fries and mac n cheese fine. Doneness was a bit uneven - steaks ordered medium and med-rare came out identical and two of three lamb chop were perfect but third overdone. Portions are significant - we've learned to hold back on appetizers to be able to enjoy dinner. Wine list by the glass is extensive. Service is impeccable and warm for such an upscale place. Dress is not too formal either - midweek we saw jeans (on women, with nice tops and shoes), plenty of collared shirts without ties on men, and even a guy sitting and eating in his baseball cap.

We decided last minute to go to Abe & Louie's, since Atlantic Fish Co. was unable to handle our group size. The apps and salads were very good, as was the clam chowder. We got the haddock special that night. It was very dry, and unenjoyable to eat. Our server was attentive and helped us to enjoy our dining, even though the main course was disappointing.

I had not been to A&L for a while and wondered why I had not after this past dining experience. Food and service was very good. Our waiter was attentive nws his serving several tables. Price was in line with other restaurants with similar quality. The decor does not feel plastic like some of the newer higher priced places in the area. The only negative is that we were seated upstairs near two large groups which made it a little noisy but it did not seem to affect our service. I will definitely go back a lot sooner than before.

Outstanding dinner at Abe & Louie's! The food was very good - we got the crab cakes, bacon, tuna tartare, filet mignon, garlic mashed potatoes, lobster mac & cheese, brussel sprouts, mushrooms. All spectacular. We also received a complimentary dessert platter, which made the whole experience that much better. Would definitely recommend!

Superb beef eating location. Plan to spend some money but you will receive very good value for the expenditure. Service was excellent and attentive. The food from appetizers to dessert was superb. Upstairs larger group location was noisy but the bar was near and, as stated, the service was excellent. Would return for dining without hesitation.

I enjoyed a quiet lunch with my son at Abe and Louie's Boston. Our waiter, Drew was very pleasant and personable. He suggested things on the menu and worked very hard to ensure that we were satisfied with our meal.

My recent dining experience with three friends was terrific (7/8/16). We met at the bar for drinks before dinner and the two bartenders who served us were very welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. When we were seated for dinner, Jeffrey, our server, took over providing excellent service -- professional, friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, and unobtrusive. Couldn't have been better. The bone-in rib eyes, as usual, were outstanding. A follow-up email correspondence on a minor point with the general manager, Nick, proved just as satisfying. His gracious, prompt response confirmed my conviction that Abe & Louie's is one of the finest establishments and best run restaurants in Boston.

We had a reservation for 8:45, but didn't get seated until almost 9:30. Why allow reservations if this is the case? Walk ins were seated in the same amount of time. Waiter was kind and helpful with selections. Pizza was good

Marco was great. Very attentive and prompt but not intrusive. Steak was perfectly prepared. Pittsburgh style rare. Nice wine list fairly priced. Tables very close together no private convo possible and neighbors were pretty loud. I'm sure regulars get the best tables as in all high end places

My husband and I have been a few times to Abe & Louies and our last visit was a disappointing experience. We ordered two 8 oz filet mignon and not only are they served on a very small plate (which may be designed to make the steak look bigger) but these were very small steaks. Standards have slipped, 8 oz appeared more like 6 oz and seemed like poor value for the money, and gain was a disappointing experience.

The steaks for everyone in our party were cooked to the specifications of each, and they were delicious. The sides are large and can be shared. The wine and cocktail selection was very good. Service was absolutely terrific. Overall, a very good experience.

Maybe an off day for the kitchen, but both main courses (Swordfish and Lobster Casserole) were underwhelming and the side of Brussels Sprouts copious but under-cooked. We will stick to the steaks next time...should we return.

Abe & Louie's in one of my all time favorite Boston restaurants. The quality of the food and the service are second to none. The service runs like a well-oiled machine. No shoddy service, ever.
The rolls they serve when you arrive at out of this world.
linen tablecloth service, but not so much so that it's not relaxed and informal to dine. Dark wood abounds, but it's not dreary.
All in all, it strikes me as a place to go for dinner, not lunch, and it is more a fall/spring/winter place as opposed to summertime. That said, we did lunch there the other day and they had the retracted front walls up, so it was al fresco dining onto Boylston Street.
Abe & Louie's rocks. It's simply the best.

Menu was thoughtful and full of options. Wait staff was very professional and warm, but very sharp and efficient. The cocktails were expertly done as well. The food was very creatively done and plentiful -- Rich and elegant. Overall, outstanding.

We had eaten at Abe and Louie's in Boca Raton but this was our first time in Boston. It was a wonderful meal. My husband loved his chop salad. We both thought the T-bone steak for two was perfect- very tender and delicious. The French fries and the hash browns were great. Regarding the wine list, it is extensive and pricey. However, we were able to find a delicious wine with some age that was more moderately priced thanks to the excellent advice of the sommelier. A wonderful meal. We will definitely return the next time we are in Boston. Also the maitre d' graciously left the restaurant and accompanied us to the street to find a taxi.

We ordered filets and they were over cooked and the sweet potatoe fries were cold. The waiter was wonderful and that is why we did not complain. Very expensive for what we were served. Used to be one of my favorite restaurant but.......

Exceptional experience from beginning to end. Was there to celebrate a big promotion for my sister and so glad we choose Abe & Louie's. We had a beautiful table right by the opening to the patio. Service was excellent, food was delicious. Was there with a large party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. When I arrived with a present in hand the host asked if it was a special occasion and they ended up giving us a large dessert plate for the table complimentary. The perfect end to a perfect visit.

I ordered flowers through open table. They were there. I gave not gone via k and checked my charge to see if the charge went thru. Put a damper on a very special Wedding Anniversary. The restaurant was great though.

One of the best steakhouses in Boston. Though the noise can become distracting the food and service are outstanding making this an amazing dining spot. Onion soup is exceptional as is the wedge (enough for two) and the steak tartare. Lots of beef options at competitive steakhouse pricing. Side are for sharing. One of the best cream corns I have ever tasted and the bacon makes it exceptional. the skillet chocolate cookie is great for sharing and arrives hot and gooey. This is one of my must dine at when I am in Boston.
