Abe and Louie's Boston Ratings and Reviews

Steaks were outstanding, my wife had the Filet and I had the NY Strip. The grilled cauliflower was excellent and recommended by our waiter. We ordered a bottle of wine and they brought out a different year then what was on the wine list. I questioned it and they said that they ran out of the specific year listed. I am not a wine expert, by any stretch, but i thought this wasn't acceptable at a high end steak house. Overall, the wait staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. Portions were large an overall great experience.

Our dinner this weekend was out standing as always. It was a speeial birthday for my mom. All the staff came to wish her a wonderful evening. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious! We were close to Symphony Hall, our next stop in the evening. The restaurant is charming and elegant and worth the 2. Hour drive to get there. We will be back!!

Family member birthday dinner. Seated at a round table which was great for our party of 6--made for easy conversation. Served warm buttery soft pretzel like rolls pre-dinner. Nice wine list--our waiter was very knowedgeable on the food and wine. House salad and tomato salads were very good for starters. We all had different cuts of steak - all delish. The only part that didn't work out so well was that we had valet parked. We were told to give our waiter the parking stub 15 minutes prior to departming, which we did at dessert time. The car never came after nearly an hour--the valet had not gotten the stub from the waiter (or lost it). Finally, we spoke to the valet directly and the car came within 15 minutes. Dinner was on the pricey side includung the tip was nearly $800. Although we all enjoyed ourselves, cost to value was high.

Food is very good, and I like the ambiance, but I'm always annoyed at places who won't let you sit before your full party is there. I had a reservation for two people, and my boyfriend was running 10 minutes late. I was drenched from getting caught in the rain. My feet were sore from walking in heels. The bar was completely full, and I really just wanted to sit down. Instead they made me stand in this awkward waiting area with no chairs while my empty table was just sitting there. They were polite about it, but it just started the night off on a bad note.

They need to stop letting people who are waiting for tables crowd into the dining area. It was an appalling clog. On a Sunday night! Waiting people were blocking waters and practically hanging over our table waiting for us to be finished. This was not inexpensive.

Successfully made my reservation through Open Table. Then was contacted by the restaurant to confirm the number of my group. I was roped into a contract which there was a 5% admin fee and service charges equaling $250 additional! Not even a private space. Ridiculous! The food was fantastic and I got rave reviews from my guests. Unfortunately we were put on the second floor right next to the bar which was extremely loud. It was difficult to hold a conversation or hear the waiter without shouting. This was very frustrating. Some patrons were needing to rent a room and appears there is no dress code either. If you're looking to host an upscale business dinner, I would recommend having it downstairs.

Came to the restaurant at my designated rez time and was asked to go upstairs. We approached the hostess upstairs and she asked how many in my party. I responded two and she quickly said we only have high top tables. When I said I'm not eating a $50 steak on a tiny hightop table she said that's all we have right now. I stated we had a reservation and she replied OH.... We were eventually placed at a regular table but this all could have been avoided
if she asked if we had a reservation INITIALLY ! She should know better and not assume we were walk ins !!!!

We had an excellent experience at Abe & Louie's. The food was absolutely fantastic. Both of us had French Onion Soup, split the bacon appetizer, and each got a phenomenal steak (NY strip and bone in filet) with a shared side of roasted broccoli, and ended the evening with a skillet cookie for dessert and coffees. We had a gorgeous table for two upstairs in the corner window. Our server was knowledgable and personable. The only concern was when we wrapped up our leftovers they disappeared for quite some time but the server ultimately found them and we went home very happy. This dinner was for a special occasion but we will happily go back for other outings.

Been going here for years, just a great steak house. Very well known, make reservations for any meal, any time, and always ask for a booth! Wine list is a bit pricey, but quite good. Petit sirloin steak of choice. Their espresso's very good, too. It's served hot! Like it should be.

First time there for me. Won't be the last...food was wonderful as was the service. It goes without saying that this is one of the better steakhouses. All the details were attended to: the sidecar of my martini was served in a cute little ice bucket, ensuring it stayed cold and not watered down. The menu offers standard fare for a steak house, but food quality is anything but standard. Our salad arrived on chilled plates, large portions. Rolls were hot out of the oven as well. The steak was cooked perfectly and oh so tender. Sides were delicious, piping hot and generously sized portions. The service was perfect...attentive without being overbearing. We'll be back!

First time eating at this restaurant. We were visiting Boston and wanted a mid to high end establishment. We also wanted one that was not decorated in modern manner nor had a cold atmosphere. Abe & Louie's was dark wood with nice bar, cozy booths and an open table area as well as an upstairs facility. We were provided a two seater booth which was great. Our server Kenny was extremely efficient, personable, very engaging, extremely helpful and humorous. His attention made the night special. The food was excellent and prepared just the way we ordered it. They had an extensive side order selection which was impressive. We had the mushrooms and asparagus. My wife had their filet mignon and I had the bone in rib eye, both absolutely scrumptious. They had a comprehensive wine list which fortuitously had a number of wines we enjoyed. Then there was dessert which we shared. A skillet Cookie, warm chocolate chip cookie, chocolate sauce, candied pecans, vanilla ice cream. Just to die for. It was a most enjoyable dining experience which we highly recommend.

I just spent 10 days in Boston and New York City and Abe and Louie's was, by far, the best all around experience we endured for food, service, ambiance, and overall satisfaction. Great location. Lovely restaurant and impeccable service. Next time we are in Boston, Abe and Louie's will definitely be on our checklist. Highly recommend!

Really enjoyed our first visit to Abe & Louie's Boston with a multigenerational family group - great menu options, brunch and full grill menu. Huge portions, quality beef and seafood. Exceptional service. The restaurant feels like quality and tradition. Would highly recommend.
