The server, Marco, was attentive, friendly and didn't try to rush me. The Caesar salad had very tasty croutons. The filet mignon was like butter. I sat at one of the outside tables. It was around 10 pm. The weather was perfect with a slight breeze. There was a jazzy trombone playing down the street. It was a great meal and a wonderful experience!

A and L's filled with fun energy. Every bit of the food was amazing from apps to salad, entrees and the best chocolate cake I have been served in a restaurant. The waitstaff was a huge part of our wonderful experience-attentive, professional and fun! A rare combination.

We arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated right away. Our waiter was incredibly pleasant, knowledgeable, and friendly without being overly attached. Service was amazing and perfectly timed. The food was incredible. I highly recommend the potatoes au gratin as a side dish. No one in our party had anything negative to say about the dinner. It's perfect for a night out or special occasion, but too pricey to eat at frequently. We've gone there to commemorate a few special occasions and it has become a favorite special place to go for my family. Thank you Abe and Louie's!

Went for father's day dinner so it was fairly busy. Most people had steak and they were all very happy. I had the special blackened halibut and it was excellent! There was an issue with the wine we ordered and it was taken back and a new bottle presented with no problems. Desserts were amazing, the chocolate cake was huge and the cheese cake was fresh and very tasty.

We made a special trip into Boston to visit this restaurant for Sunday Lunch/Brunch. We were seated right away and were quickly greeted. We both ordered brunch items, my Wife ordered the french toast which was described as having butter, pecans & maple-banana topping, I think I saw two tiny slivers of banana and maybe a sliver of pecan, but the serving included 6 half slices which was very tasty, even with the lack of toppings. I ordered the steak benedict . The hollandaise sauce had a bit of a bitter taste to it as is the case at some other restaurants that I've ordered this dish from, I assume it's due to the recipe they use for their sauce. I would prefer the less bitter/sour recipe of hollandaise sauce but I still enjoyed it. Perhaps I'll try something else during our next visit. Our server, John W., was top notch and very pleasant, he would be a great role model for others in his line of work. We will return.

We and my girlfriend went here for dinner this past Saturday . We Read the reviews and figured we would give it a shot. Bread was out of this world dinner and dessert were also amazing. Service was also a 10 food came out quick and were so nice. We highly recommend going here.

Excellent food and service. Noise level was louder than I tend to prefer, but the food and service is worth going back for. On a par with Smith & Wollensky, Grill 23, Morton's, and The Palm.

Abe & Louie's has great culture!
I returned to Abe & Louie's after the great experience I had visiting Boston a couple of years ago. Coming from Minneapolis which also has great restaurants, ambiance, and culture, I appreciated going back and seeing, Sonny the bartender, who has a fabulous demeanor. A & L also reminded me of some of the great steak joints in Chicago. We will go back again for sure!

Have been coming here for years, never disappoints
great food in general but not the mushrooms
We were able to sit outside. It was perfect temperature. Service was excellent. Everything was delicious (bread, salad, oyster, steak, sea bass). I was not impressed with the side mushroom dish. I have had much better. Otherwise everything else 5 stars.
Our table was ready, server very knowledgeable.
We had reservations for seven after my son's high school graduation. Our tatasble was ready, great view of the outside, our server was helpful and very knowledgeable of the menu and very attentive to our drink and dinner orders. Our drinks were brought to our table very quickly. The food didn't take a super long time and was absolutely delicious. Four of us had the special filet mignon with bone, my son had the Delmonico steak and I had scallop/shrimp dish with risotto. I had a bite of my husband's filet and it melted in my mouth. Our sides were delicious also! And the chef prepared a special dessert tray for our special occasion! The experience was fun, wonderful, delicious and very enjoyable!

We will be back. Excellent service and food. Totally enjoyable night.
My Favourite Boston eatery!
Abe and Louie's is a classic steak house but with excellent service, food and wine. The way I look at it is: "If you're going to have a steak you might as well go to the best place in town!"
came here for my wife's birthday on a recommendation from Harry the bartender at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel he was spot on service was great we both had the bone in rib eye cooked exactly as ordered nice size side orders complemented the beef the wedge salad had just the right amount of blue cheese and the house made bacon is to die for shared the peach cobbler for dessert it was more than enough for two had a pleasant conversation with the sommelier when he brought our wine to the table and shared some pictures of new wines we had recently tasted the decor is traditional steak house but warm and welcoming overall a very satisfying experience that we would encourage others to try at least once when visiting Boston

Was seated up stairs in between 3 very large parties. At times felt like we were forgotten a little bit by the wait staff.
Wonderful Anniversary Celebration!
Food and service were outstanding! Complimentary champagne for 4 was sent to the table after dinner!
Excellent as always
This place never disappoints. The food is top notch -- our steaks were cooked to perfection! Leave room for the Skillet Cookie, it was awesome but filling!

was disappointed that we weren't able to order off the dinner menu since we were there in the middle of the afternoon. i can't remember seeing times for lunch. also you should post that there is no valet parking in the afternoon. what with he parking situation that may be a consideration as what time to book reservations. all in all food was very good.
Jess and her team are wonderful!
Perfect night with friends in the best place to go in Boston!
Great steaks and service
We started with a soft shell crab appetizer served on sour dough. Delicate and flavorful. I had the filet 10 oz and my husband had the 16 oz bone in filet. I asked for medium rare, but my steak was really medium. It was still very good, but a tiny bit over cooked for me. My husbands steak was cook to a perfect medium rare. We shared a side of grilled asparagus. The sides are an excellent size for sharing. We then finished with butterscotch brioche bread pudding. It was very tasty. The service is excellent and our waiters recommendations were spot on.

Always enjoy the experience and the good at Abe and Louis. As a repeating customer I'm never disappointed.
Son's Graduation Dinner
Very good food with outstanding Service and Ambience. Always a must whenever in Boston.
This is a restaurant that caters to the client. If you want to feel like the most important person in the room, this is the place. Our waiter was fantastic, the food was perfect, and the drinks were great too! Very expensive, but worth a visit! Go hungry, share the sides and be prepared to be pampered! YUM!

We ordered our steaks medium rare and they were delivered medium well. We had to notify the waiter wo was reluctant to take them back. The food was disappointing. Much worse than on previous visits.
Superb service and food
I booked this restaurant for my wife's birthday. Management went out of their way to make it special; offered free champagne, candle in desert, free cake in addition to desserts we ordered. The service was smooth and seamless; Anthony did a great job of providing suggestions and making the timing between courses right. The entire service team went out of their way to say Happy Birthday. The steaks were top notch and the bacon appetizer was excellent; but the seared peppered tuna was also great.
Pricey, but GREAT for a Special Occasion
I must say - while this place was pricey (but reasonable, and expected for a place like this), it was great. Definitely not the kind of place I'm going to once a week, as it is out of my price range, but definitely on my list for Special Occasion restaurants. For this occasion, we were celebrating the wedding anniversary of my Father and his wife. My father is quite the foodie, and his wife is known to be rather picky, and they both could not stop RAVING about the food. Its unfortunate that this is the meal we began our weekend together with, as nothing else would compare from this point forward. Service was excellent, food was great, and everyone left happy. I made a note in our online reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary, and the restaurant provided us with prosecco to toast upon arrival, as well as the most decadent chocolate cake as a celebratory dessert, all on the house. Would highly recommend - whether you can afford it as a regular stop, or just once in a while for special occasions, you won't regret it.
