Diner Reviews
  • "Everyone knows that Abe & Louie's is great for dinner, but it is also great for brunch. Excellent brunch selections at reasonable prices. Brunch starts with a great bread/pastry basket. Excellent service."

  • "The waiter was an arrogant disgusting fellow, trying to make fun of customers"

  • "Tuna tartare and salad appetizer were excellent. One of the entree was ok, a Wagyu steak coming from Australia, juicy but flavorless. The other entree, a butterfly filet , was terrible, overcooked, burnt and extremely dry. The sides were good. After complaining we were offered a free dessert. Cream Brûlée , custom made (in practice they prepared the hard top crust). We appreciated the effort, but the result was disappointing, the dessert felt like a frozen greek yogurt with some artificial vanilla flavor. Also the wine, served as Sav. Blanc but most likely a Chardonnay, was disappointing. The experience was ok, but from this type of restaurant and at this level (>$100/each) of pricing, the experience should be impeccable."

  • "The overall experience at Abe & Louie's was terrific. My husband and I love steak , the steak we had was simply amazing. The clam chowder soup was exquisite . The ambiance was very romantic. We had a great time. We can't end this without saying how our server Chris was exceptional. He gave us and amazing service we thank him. I can't say anymore it was wonderful. Thanks."

    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Service was friendly and attentive. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious, especially the crab cake, bone-in ribeye and crispy smashed Yukon gold potatoes. Downstairs is very noisy, but upstairs is an entirely different atmosphere; quiet and charming when you sit next to the windows."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Maybe our expectations were too high. We were not impressed with our meals. The lobster Mac and cheese was really good though. The bone in ribeye was charred with a burnt taste. We won't go back but glad to say we tried it out."

  • "Bone in filet best I've had, so tender, cooked to perfection! Salads, ice cold & huge, the the whipped cauliflower-devine. We all felt our experience was flawless & our food delish. HOWEVER, we returned the next night, steaks were very good but the sides were not as good as the night before especially the baked potato, over baked or just left over and they over cooked the lobsters twice! Not sweet, chewy ($56) & that was our 2nd round, 1st was inedible,what a shame-at a restaurant of this caliber & in Boston, they couldn't serve a succulent sweet lobster! Although food disappointed, service was the real disappointment lack of attention, poor attitude along with the handling of the lobster issue is enough to rethink visiting again"

  • "Steaks both Filet and Rib Eye were cooked to perfection. We didn't have to worry otherwise in this restaurant."

  • "Atmosphere did not match high price of food. The steak came on a plain white plate without even a garnish. My food was cooked wrong and had to be sent back. I recommend finding another restaurant. Very disappointed."

  • "We spent our 38th Anniversary dinner at Abe & Louie's before Billy Joel. The wait staff was very attentive and not rushing us at all. The food was great and spread out so we were able to thoroughly enjoy the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there this week. We started at the bar for a drink until our reservation was ready. When out table was ready we sat right next to the bar in a spacious booth for two. We found at times difficult to hear each other over the restaurant noise level. The salted bread was amazing and the shrimp cocktail was fresh and delicious. My husband and I both got steak while my husbands was cooked to perfection mine was dry and over cooked. This was disappointing for a $48 steak:( we also shared asparagus which was blackened and not steamed. I think this would have been a better dinner if we were with friends or a large party not very romantic for anniversary which was disappointing."

  • "A classic Boston steakhouse experience. Lots of dark wood, cozy accommodations, and servers at the ready. Big, perfectly cooked cuts of meat, family style sides of amazing richness, hearty appetizers and great cocktails. Abe & Louie's is a pricey night out (>$100 per person easily) but every penny feels worth it. The service is impeccable without being overbearing and every request is handled with aplomb. Favorites from our table where the French Onion Soup (amazing), the bone-in Filet Mignon (more flavorful than any filet I've ever tasted but still amazingly tender). Not the kind of place 'regular' folk can go to frequently, but for a special occasion (graduation, anniversary, etc.) this is a great choice."

  • "We arrived at 9:15pm at this restaurant. After having placed our order there were only minutes until our appetizer was served. Both were cold dishes. Both were very good but we were surprised with how quickly they were brought out. Once the first plates were removed from our table our server told us that our main courses would be "right out". We were a bit surprised but did not really know what that meant. Within 5 minutes we had our main course on the table. The food was good, not great. Nothing wrong with it, just not a top notch steakhouse quality. Servers were very quick to offer to remove our plates and the overall experience felt rushed. We left the restaurant after 70 minutes, which was not the relaxed experience we were after."

  • "Went there with my daughter for her Bday. I read the comments here but did not request special seating and was placed upstairs in the corner. In itself was not bad but view isn't good there and much preferred outside on patio where the vibe of the street and pretty flowers would have been better. Waiter was good. Food was about average to below average for what you should expect from high end $50 steak. Clam chowder was disappointing, lacked any claims, all potatoes and sauce. Great location but lacked delivery so I will not be back."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The past part about the dining experience was the spectacular service. Our waiter was extremely accommodating and considerate to our needs. He made suggestions on the menu items so we ordered what he recommended. The prime rib was a huge disappointment though. It came out a bit overcooked but there wasn't any juice in it/on it so we barely touched it. My bone-in filet was over-charred on the sides but the inside was perfect. Some of the sides like the cauliflower steak and mushroom/spinach were extremely salty. It was our first time dining at Abe & Louie so we were extremely disappointed."

  • "It was my first time , we came as a party if five for a birthday and we all had a lovely time. I am sure I will be back ."

  • "Chopped salad was uninspired. Bone in filet was overly salted. Blue cheese mashed potatoes were not balanced correctly. Unfortunate evening given the cost."

  • "We recently relocated to the New England area after having lived in Dallas for the last 11 years. Our dining experiences have paled in comparison to what we had become accustomed to in Dallas, notably one of the premier dining areas in the nation. After lamenting the lack of good steakhouses in the area, on the recommendation of our Boston Segway tours guide, we came to Abe and Louie's. Hallelujah! As tender and mouth-watering as we had hoped. We each got a different cut of steak that was perfectly prepared and as tasty as only corn-fed beef can be. Service was lacking unfortunately--not nearly as attentive as you would expect considering the price of the meals, but the food was certainly on par with a good Texas steakhouse. Kudos!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The finest service the finest quality of cuisine , you could never beat their steaks and that is a comment from a someone who was involved in farm beef production back in Scotland . Our lady server was absolutely wonderful, her knowledge and intuitiveness was amazing. Well done Abe and Louie's consistently the best in Boston."

  • "Paul our waiter was great, i have celiac and he made sure i was taking care of. He was polte courteous and attentive. The food was great as well the steak melted in my mouth and the lobster wasjust as good. It was our tenth year anniversary and they gave us a complimentary choclate mouse which was to die for."

  • "Bar seats were reserved by bartender when I arrived for other guest. They didn't greet me. He scoled me and said you can't sit there. They didn't say can I get you a drink. They said those seats are reserved. (who knew I thought bars were open seating). I finally said - can I order a drink? Personally, I found the bartenders rude but I realize they have their locals that they cater to and folks like me - well - wait - and be thankful if they even acknowledge you. We had to ask for the serve to come to our table so many times that we just ordered everything we needed after asking for him 3x. However, despite the terrible service when the food arrived it was heavenly. Oh, and don't ask for a military discount - they laughed."

  • "This was our second time at Abe and Louie's. It is your typical upscale steak house -- great steaks, noisy and crowded, very expensive. The best part was the vodka martinis. I would go back just for one of those. :-) I had a signature cucumber martini that was amazing. I also had the swordfish which was nothing to write home about, but the others with me had steaks and they were very good. With all the other steak houses and restaurants in and around Boston I don't know that I would back but it wasn't because I didn't enjoy the food or the experience; it's just that there are too many other great places that have more interesting food and better ambiance."

  • "We loved the atmosphere in this location. The server was perfect. The food as well. One issue to improve is the noise, but that is something what I noticed in many US restaurants."
