Abe and Louie's Boston Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I have enjoyed numerous summer lunches at Abe & Louie's over the years and have always ranked them from 4 to 5 on the 5 scale. So we decided to celebrate earlier this week with a party of six for a business dinner. We reserved a 630pm OpenTable several days in advance. When we arrived for our reservation the hostess, after stalling for at least 5 minutes, led us to the dark, dingy, vacant basement. We told her this was unacceptable, we weren't going to spend $1,000 on dinner for 6 in a basement. The blonde hostess was not friendly, not accommodating, and gave us really bad attitude like we were putting her out. We asked for a table on the main floor and after another 5 minutes were told that all the good vacant tables had been requested (we didn't know we needed to request a good table) and we were led to a noisy half-booth and half-chairs table near the bar. But the worst was to come: the food and wine. The house cabernet is expensive (and very warm by the way) for the poor quality. We upgraded to glasses of Meomi and Treana for about $25 per 9-oz glass. The house rolls were overcooked and dry and we had to ask for replacements. The Caesar salad was decent but not great. The seafood tower was very good but costly. The bone-in ribeye at about $50 looked and tasted like the all-u-can-eat steaks at Golden Corral. It was thin, overcooked (we requested medium rare and it was on the far side of medium), unmarbled, and not very tasty. The worst were the sides: the asparagus and the mushroom sides were very overcooked: the mushrooms were reduced to a soupy stew and the thin asparagus very olive drab in color and tough. We have had many superior evening meals out in the Boston area for less than one-half the cost and with gracious service. This formerly very good restaurant has developed an arrogance and has become complacent.
Have dined there for many years typically excellent, unfortunately two of the 4 steaks were significantly overcooked. The replacements still overcooked while not as much still not what they should have been. They did the right think by not charging the mark of a high class operation. Service was very good
Everything about Abe and Louie's is great. For some reason, the only thing that can be tricky is telling the front desk that you will be waiting for your party at the bar. When the rest of the party arrived, they were told that I wasn't there yet! Other than that, everything was great.
Abe and Louie's is known for steak. Interestingly absent from the list above. The salads and sides are substantial and substantive. They will half most of them for you, variety at such a restaurant is a treat. The Brussels sprouts were a bit of a disappointment. But everything else was delightful from cocktails to dessert. Service was timely and amiable, good advice available when requested. What else do you want? Cheap prices....not here. You get what you pay for.
We got a last min 9pm reservation and were able to dine upstairs at our favorite table overlooking the street. We had a wonderful server whom was filling in for our usual server, Heather. Martha was AMAZING. Her personality and timing were delightful. We never have a bad meal or cocktail at Abe & Louis. The lobster Savannah is TO DIE FOR each and every time. Thank you for being consistent in your delivery of great service, great food and excellent atmosphere.
We had a lunch meeting at Abe & Louie's. Just drinks and burgers. All in all, very pleasant. I especially liked the vodka martini, which was ice cold and huge. The beef burgers were fine, although I personally prefer double patties rather than one huge patty as served at A&L. The meat overwhelms the bun. One of our party had a tuna burger, which he said was good.
Fabulous meal for my son's homecoming from the Army. Five years ago before he shipped out we ate there and vowed to come back when he got out. We were so excited to go back a few days ago. We were treated like royalty. Abe & Louie's is a very special place for our family. Thank you.
Excellent food. My steak was cooked perfectly. My husbands was a little overdone and the server noticed and replaced it immediately. Service was terrific. Chocolate cake was awesome. Also they do have food for children even though it's not listed on the menu.
Horrible. (Have frequent diner card). Was very specific with waiter that I have food restrictions. No added salt or sugar. Repeated it many times. Lamb chops arrived with salt. I said no salt on baked potato it was baked in salt. Everyone finished their meal while I waited then they had to wait for me. Made it very unpleasant
Been going to Abe and Louis for years since they opened
In Boston. Very disappointed
No apologies from staff. Usually a manager comes by. No manager I didn't ask for one to complain
This is our recommended splurge when in Boston. The seafood tower is a must! The lamb chops were cooked perfectly and they had mint jelly! A family favorite for me although I understand horrific for the uninitiated. The wine list was very nice at normal reasonable prices. Valet parking was very helpful!
