Abe and Louie's Boston
Great night outMy wife and I had a wonderful time with some friends visiting from DC. They gave us a great table which allowed for views of the restaurant and the sidewalk scene. A terrific wine list. And the food was excellent. It has been too long since we went to Abe & Louis and we will have to go back again soon.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAbe & Louie's Still OutstandingYet another dinner at A & L's in Boston. I can't share enough positives at this point. Arrived early to have a drink in the bar before dinner. I could have stayed there all night, but I had bigger plans and wanted room to spread out a bit with a steak and a bottle of Cabernet. Service was excellent. Great table, terrific waiters, and the service was attentive and not hovering. A question about the wine selection didn't merely produce an answer, it produced the sommelier who explained the different wine specials that night and the values to be had. I chose a small vineyard Cab that went perfectly with the steaks and sides we ordered. A great night overall. Can't wait to return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Special PlaceGreat food and atmosphere. Exceptional attention by wait staff, manager and wine steward.
Is there such a thing as "too fast" service? Hardly had we ordered and just beginning to converse and enjoy our cocktails, when our salads arrived! Perhaps a little breathing room between cocktail delivery and salad?5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and wait staff areThe food and wait staff are always outstanding. I have never had a bad meal there. I love the Bar scene and the Bar tenders are very friendly, they make an awesome Expresso Martini.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant & Wonderful FoodWe've been here before and love the food and the decor. The restaurant was a bit noisy for our taste. We sat across from each other at a rather small table and it was a bit difficult to hear each other. Not the best for a romantic dinner but would be absolutely perfect for going out with a group or with a few friends.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Boston SteakhouseConsistently one of the best. Food is well prepared and the sides are plentiful and delicious. Service spot on- With a city full of choices if you are looking for outstanding food and service every time you need to make a reservation.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteakWe decided to split a Porterhouse and the woodfired shrimp. The steak was excellent, the shrimp very average. Sad really.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but hate the a la carteWe went to Abe & Louie's for a business lunch the other day to offer post-marathon bombing support to this Boylston Street business. The ambience, service and quality of the food was all very good, but I hate the a la carte system of ordering. At the prices they charge, you should at least get a vegetable with your fish. Also, I don't like the way they say "Market Price" but don't tell you the price when taking your order. Pretty basic but high quality food. The tuna nicoise salad was delicious.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeFood was outstanding (fillet mignon); service was really wonderful. Waiter attentive - great sense of humor. Place was buzzing. Very expensive but worth the price.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fav steak house in the country....and I have been to a few- all the big names. This place is a must stop whenever in Boston. Food perfect consistently. Filet melts in mouth, sweet potato fries, creamed spinach, warm cookies, chocolate cake...all exceptional.
Ben our water was top notch. Cant wait to get back there! Thank you!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak in BostonI have gone to Abe & Louie's 4 times in the past few years on my business trips there. Abe & Louie's is always on the list for dinner. Great steaks! Kenny is the best to have as a server there. He takes care of you and has a good story for you. Nothing is rushed and the food is fresh and well prepared. The steak melts in your mouth!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, excellent serviceGreat steak restaurant, nice classic decor and good ambience.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak in BostonAbe & Louie's is a Boston favorite. Well-known and adored by everyone. You'll have difficulty finding something that doesn't taste good on the menu. Everything is delicious. The lamb, the filet mignon, creamed spinach, baked potato, doesn't matter. Expensive, but worth every penny.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, whether youExcellent food, whether you order red meat or not. Service attentive, with the right amount of personality to make lunch there a fun, albeit expensive experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak/Great serviceWent here for my birthday dinner with the family and it was great. We knew it would be a bit pricey, but it was a special occasion and felt like splurging. The waiter was relatively well informed when it came to the menu items and was very friendly and personable. He was also not hesitant to call the sommelier over to assist us with the wine selection. The sommelier wasn't as helpful as I would have expected, but he did help us with our decision simply by ensuring our selection wasn't a bad one.. The food was great, but I'm not a big fan of the separate side dishes, which I suppose you'd find at this type of restaurant. I prefer a dish to myself with the sides of my choosing as opposed to shared separate dishes, but what are ya gonna do...5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSentimental favoriteI wanted to eat here even before the Marathon bombings. The food was excellent. We started with shrimp cocktail and oysters. Unfortunately, the next course ( soup) arrived while my companion was still eating his oysters, but the waiter quickly recognized the problem and offered to bring back the soup. (We politely declined, but appreciated the gesture.) He was very attentive for the rest of the evening and did not miss a beat. He warned me that the swordfish steak Asian style had both admirers and detractors, but I had it anyway. I am glad that I did, even though the glaze was salty. Overall, a lovely and sentimental experience! I would go again. My only criticism was that the tables for two were very small. No room for a seafood tower!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a memorable experience!Brought clients this week (Apr 30th), as a "last minute" reservation. It's always my first choice for planned dinner meetings - but I felt very lucky to find a table at Abe & Louis during "prime time" dining! My clients loved it, they were very impressed with our city, and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Even more thrilled with their meals, the service and terrific wine choice! I'm never disappointed.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best steaks in BostonThis is definitely one of the top steakhouses in Boston, and I've tried most of them. They know how to cook a steak. I recommend the bone-in filet.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPost Marathon AttackThe location is yards away from the marathon bombing attacks. We sat outside and the service was fantastic. The food is top notch although they were out of Prime Rib by 645 on a Sunday night. I have been here many times but post marathon Monday 2013 the place was that much better.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBased on the events of theBased on the events of the last few weeks in Boston, and what Abe and Louie's had to do to get ready for Saturday night, it was amazing and exceptional. The food was the best ever, the service with Sam, our waiter was incredible. He was always ready, willing and able. It must have been hard to be back working in a space that was a war zone just a week earlier, but all the staff was on their game, smiling and making everyone feel at home. Good job! We will return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I celebrated ourMy wife and I celebrated our 23rd weding Anniversary there on 4/27. Kenny was our waiter and was outstanding. I beleive it was their first night open since the Marathon bombing. A & L also picked up our food bill which was a shock and a surprise.
We had a wonderful meal!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought my boyfriend hereI brought my boyfriend here for his birthday Saturday night. We had a nice cozy booth for 2 and everything was wonderful. Great wine, good service and of course the food, wow! We shared carpaccio to start, I had a boneless filet and he had the ribeye. Everything was cooked perfectly, sides of brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes were a perfect accompaniment to our steaks. Can't wait to go back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic place...there areFantastic place...there are several high end steakhouses in Boston but Abe and Louie's has always been and continues to be my favorite!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMone of Boston's bestAbe and Louie's never disappoints.

The steaks were glorious, the other food (pork chank and shrimp risotto) delicious.

We will come again!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI always go back to Abe &I always go back to Abe & Louie's. the food is outstanding.

I was there for lunch on 3/15 @ 2pm with a friend and words can't describe both the food and service, but I'll try. Apps - my friend had and AMAZING bowl of French Onion Soup covered in cheese with the most flavorful broth. I had pristine oysters on the half-shell with choice of sauces - EXQUISITE. For entrees, my friend had their cheeseburger and, aside from not being able to finish it from its size, she said the flavor was totally on spot. I had the Filet Mignon done medium and it melted in my mouth. The service was friendly, efficient and completely unobtrusive which was a welcome relief from SO many restaurants. If I could I would eat there 24/7!! PS - LEAVE THE KIDS AT HOME!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
