Beautiful decor.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was Great!! All 8 ofFood was Great!! All 8 of us enjoyed the food. Great service.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual lounge feel, good foodEnjoyed a great night out with the girls. I had the pizza bianco, a couple of glasses of Kung fu girl Riesling and a delicious raspberry tiramisu to finish things off. I'll certainly come here again and will be eager to see what the upstairs lounge area looks like.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new restaurantI went to Abby Lane the other night with my husband and another couple. We were going to a show at the Wilbur and decided to try this place as the menu online looked good and the prices looked reasonable. We arrived early and decided to sit at the bar for a bit. The cocktails were good and the bartender was chatty and funny. Our table was ready on time. Two of us had the lobster special, which was pricy, but looked like it was a good value and the quality was excellent. Another had the salmon, which she enjoyed greatly. I had a burger, which was very flavorful. The fries are like crack they are so good. The desserts are a little weird (if it's in a jar, I don't think it qualifies as a "pie"), but they were tasty. We will be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Fantastic!My friends & I went to a show at the Wilbur Theater directly across the street. The location was the primary reason we selected Abby Lane. The primary reason we will return is due to everything else...spot on service, incredible food, and great atmosphere. If you haven't been here yet, you are really missing out on a wonderful and memorable experience. A must try!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgood - better - bestAnother fine meal at Abbey Lane. Have been here several times and this was the best - each item interesting and well prepared under the watchful eye of Jason himself. The Arugula salad came with PERFECT asperagras, the samon spot on and the duck empenadas terrific. This place gets better with age.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed pre-theater dinnerI am so happy to find Abby Lane. What a greta venue before or after the theater. The servers are very aware of your time if you're going to the show. Very reasonable proces and good pub food. Enjoyed the whole experience.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMdinner and a showTwo of us had the lobster rolls which were deilicious, a good size and reasonably priced. The burgers were also very good. We went before a show and the location was perfect, close to all the theaters. Server was very attentive.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for pre-show eatingThe food and service were great. They had everything readily available to allow us enough time to enjoy it and still get to our show in a timely manner.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgoing to the theaterWe had a party of 8 and were late because of traffic getting into Boston. The staff was super nice and very accommodating. The food and drinks were very good and the staff got us in an out without feeling rushed.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, wonderfulDelicious food, wonderful service, such a lovely surprise for our trip!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNice new optionIf you are in that part of town - at Tufts Medical or the Theatre district it is a great option. Lunch choice were great food was fresh and service was excellent. Also it is all clean and new.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood before or after a showTried the lobster roll, which was very generous and tasty(some different seasonings than I've had before). It came with onion rings which were great! Also, had a nice red sangria and they gave us some B-B-Q chips and dip before the meal, which were yummy and great to munch on with our cocktails. Very convenient for the Wang, right across the street. Service was efficient, friendly and pleasant. Prices were reasonable.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMScrumptious Dinner!!!We were celebrating Graduation, and had a wonderful meal!!! The waitress was great, and her recommendations were spot on!! We could see the kitchen and head chef Jason checking our orders!!!! Nice touch!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTheatre District RestaurantThis is a great place to grab appetizers/dinner before the theatre.....directly across the street from the Wang Center......be sure to make reservations as it fills up with the "pre-theatre" crowd!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBachelorette partyWe were pleasantly surprised with the comfy seating upstairs for our party of 10. The wait staff was great besides a few little mistakes that were easily overlooked, but contributed to our four out of five overall rating.
I will definitely come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe certainly enjoyed it. TheWe certainly enjoyed it. The food was very high quality bar food. Interesting menu, good drinks. A little louder than I was comfortable with, but that was just because they were busy. Will return, probably just not at happy hour.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner before theatreWe had a very nice dinner before heading over to the Wang Theatre for a concert. It was extremely busy and somewhat noisy, but that is to be expected when everyone is looking for a quick bite in the Theatre District.
We had a personal pizza and a chicken sandwich. Dishes were good and plentiful.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!Great spot in the financial district, perfect setting for a business or casual lunch. The food and service is great with plenty of choices and a very impressive wine list!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and fantasticWe tried to get reservations a few times but it was booked. Knowing what I do now, the bar area is fabulous and I'd go and try to get in anytime. Very nice design.
We ended up with the day off and went in on an afternoon. It was around 2:00 so it was end of the lunch rush and was perfect. Obviously it was not the hopping atmosphere of a Friday night we intended but the music was great and the crafted cocktails were worth the trip. The only way to explain the food is, it was exactly what I wanted it to be and then, bumped up another notch. Fantastic
Boston Strong! See you again soon!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere of Abby LaneThe atmosphere of Abby Lane and the energy of our server added to our celebration!!! Our party came in two different waves and the waitress was able to balance the timing of the food very well !!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had theater tickets atWe had theater tickets at the Opera house and found the restaurant to be convenient, delicious, and excellent for a light pre-theater meal. It was my first time there so I am really not familiar enough to select special features.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect location for theaterPerfect location for theater goers - good value - the service was friendly and fast.
Definitely family friendly - little tight when it gets busy - but best value for location.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWang Center Dinner Gem!We were going to see Peter Pan at the Wang Center and this restaurant is right across the street! We sat upstairs in lounge chairs overlooking the vibrant theater scene and ate delicious food. The Caesar salad was fine except, what is with the fried whole egg? They really should have bread and butter for those who ask for it as opposed to being served chips, which were tasty but we wanted a nice crusty French roll or the like with the salad. The sliders were amazing! If you are calorie conscience, don't partake in these yummy burgers...there's a reason they are SO good. Their signature half roasted chicken was delicious...it is brined for 12 hours so it is moist and flavorful. Again, we would like some bread with this dish but, oh well!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly Staff, seated promptly,Friendly Staff, seated promptly, Excellent food.
It is nosiy a little, if you are looking for a quiet stop this is not it.
Waiter was just a little slow in getting us to desert and wrapping up the check,
otherwise a very nice meal and evening.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe delayed visit was well worth itI have been wanting to visit Abbey Lane ever since it opened in the fall of 2012 and was finally able to make the visit on Saturday 4/20. The wait was well worth it!! The restaurant has a great ambiance, it's dark and inviting. The food was absolutely phenomenal. The cocktail offerings were fun and delicious. We started with the appetizer special: a pasta dish with smoked mozzarella and meatballs with a cream sauce. We could have licked the dish clean. Our Entrees were the Pizza Bianco and the Grilled Rare Ahi Tuna both to die for.
I will definitely be returning, soon!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat has happened to good service ?When I was looking for a great Rst to go to before the theater, Abby Lane popped into view online. The menu looked great and diverse, filet to burgers to lobster rolls..priced very reasonable. I made the reservation online & typed in the section of special requests that it was my husbands birthday and to please honor that with something at dessert time. We were the only diners, yet our server was abrupt and condescending. I ordered my cocktail shaken as I prefer lots of foam. When I recd it and noticed it not shaken at all, I requested it be fixed and I was met with an eye roll and and a quick grab of the glass. This was the same when I asked for some au jus or gravy for my filet. He laughed at me, as if to say.."you're kidding, right"?4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining Option-Theater DistricHad a great dinner at Abbey Lane. Food was well prepared.

Nice presentation.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a pre-theater meal!My husband, my friend and I enjoyed a delicious early dinner at Abby Lane this past Saturday prior to attending the theater. We all appreciated the varied and well thought-out menu, the well prepared and beautifully presented food, the relaxed yet sophisticated ambiance, the pleasant and efficient service and the affordable prices, especially considering the portion size and the restaurant location.

Great job guys, keep up the good work.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around great place.Heard this place was great, and it didn't let me down. Didn't experience one issue during my visit.
