Abe and Louie's Boston Ratings and Reviews
I was very happy with the service and the historical ambiance of Abe and Louie. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I did feel that the steaks fell a bit short. Having eaten at other great steakhouses throughout the country, they were a bit shy of perfection. The seafood dishes were thoroughly enjoyed as were the sides and the desserts.
Everything was great except for the awful service! We felt as though we were imposing by asking the waiter if we could order our meals. We had to flag the waiter down to get him to come to our table. Our entire conversation that evening was about the awful service. We thought perhaps the poor service was the result of a waiter who was overwhelmed, but we observed our waiter chatting by the bathroom. I probably won't be returning!
Everything was great but the lady at the reservations desk. We had a 6:15 booking they wanted to give us a table upstairs but we wanted one downstairs and where told it would take 20 mins . When they had a few tables of 5 available so we agreed and when I checked back in 25 mins I was told we had to wait until the table paid there bill. We did not get sat until 7 and there was 3 tables for 5 still empty Really???
Celebrated Easter with brunch for 7 at a table just inside the open doors, on an unusually warm Easter Sunday. The setting could not have been better -- with views to the festive day before Boston Marathon crowds and soft music wafting in from a two piece street band. The service was excellent and the Eggs Benedict three ways (steak, lobster and crab) was outstanding. All in all a wonderful day.
It was very busy. Saturday evening on marathon weekend. We only had to wait a few minutes before being seated. Our server Bobby Dee was outstanding! Just the right amount of attention. His suggestions were spot on, and we really enjoyed our conversations with him. The meal was excellent. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly, and my date had the swordfish. Both meals along with side dishes were delicious. I also recommend the clam chowder. Even with the energetic ambiance, it was a very enjoyable and relaxing evening. 5 stars all around. We will definitely be back to experience it again.
We've been coming to Abe & Louie's for many years now and have loved it every time. After trying many steakhouses in the Boston area, we always come back to Abe's because it's been the best and most consistent. Our last visit was a bit disappointing. 8 of us (in our party of 9) ordered steaks and 4 of us ended up with overcooked steaks. My medium came out medium well, another friend's medium rare was medium plus... This is the first time we've experienced this at A&L's and were quite surprised by this. I had the filet mignon and in the past have enjoyed the way it's presented on a plate with its own juices. The way it was presented this time featured no juice whatsoever and looked overdone just by looking at it. We didn't voice any complaints to the waiter as she was great, but this experience definitely soured the perfect run we've enjoyed at A&L's over the years. The sides were good but also lacked a bit of the shine we've come to expect from this restaurant. The asparagus were dull in color and a bit on the limp side, without the snap we were expecting. Overall, our party had a good time and we enjoyed several aspects of the meal (drinks, desserts). But having half of our party's steaks not come out as ordered was a big letdown, especially with the cost of each steak (which we're happy to pay but expect them to be perfect). We'll try Abe & Louie's again because it's been our go-to Boston steakhouse for so long... but if we had another experience like the one we just had where the steaks were overcooked, we would move on to any of the other great steakhouses the city has to offer.
We were celebrating two birthdays in our party with no recognition from the staff. We were seated upstairs which is acceptable but not as great an ambiance as downstairs. My Boneless New York Sirloin Au Pouvre with Asparagus and Garlic Masshed were very good. I tried the Cheesecake for the first time this trip. It comes with just some pieces of fruit and no sauce. It could have used some sauce. It was a little bland
Abe and Louie's best steakhouse in Boston. The service was great and their martini presentation was neat with an ice bucket for the rest of the martini.
They had a filet mignon bone in special that was amazing. The mac and cheese is a little on the sweeter side, in case you were debating about that or the mashed potatoes. Perfect for date night!
Always a wonderful experience. One of our favorite places. We were at a table this time but I'm always blown away by the knowledge and helpfullness when we sit at the bar. Obviously sitting it's more private but they have an excellent waitstaff and the valets are always great too.
Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, he had never been to Abe and Louie's before, and now he can't wait to go back! Everything (service, food, atmosphere) was perfect. He had the NY Strip and I had the Rib Eye and we also had the potatoes gratin, everything was cooked to perfection. He could not stop gushing about how he'd just eaten the best steak in his life. I ate almost all of my huge portion of steak, it was just too good and I couldn't help myself!
On top of the delicious food, we experienced a very friendly and efficient staff. Our server Anthony was very warm and accommodating, and the service was seamless. Unfortunately we did not have any room for dessert, but hopefully next time we'll be able to enjoy something off their menu! I have been to Abe's on several occasions, and it never fails to impress. I'm glad I got to introduce my boyfriend to one of my favorite places in Boston. Can't wait to return!
Abe & Louie's is noted for it's fine steaks. My husband and I both had filet mignon club sandwiches. I thought mine was excellent and cooked just right (medium). My husband thought the same. Although I expect to pay a premium at this restaurant, the wine, at $19 for the large glass, seemed over priced. For desert we had key lime pie and cheesecake with seasonal berries, both of which were excellent. We both even enjoyed the coffee, which in many fine restaurants is too strong for our liking. This was just right. I highly recommend Abe & Louie's.
Abe & Louie's is a Boston Landmark for a great place for an excellent steak. The dining room is comfortable and the service is excellent without being pretentious. My companion and I had the steak - he had the strip steak and I had the Delmonico. Both were cooked exactly as we requested and since I like my steak rare and I don't usually get it the way I actually like it I was very pleased to see it was cooked rare and perfectly for me. We shared grilled asparagus also which was excellent. It can be pricy but when the food (especially steak) is done properly it's worth the cost.
