    The best wine list dollar for dollar in that part of Boston! The carpaccio is not as described on the menu, it is a meal in itself, and finely prepared. Probably the best I have ever had; crab cake was not far behind. Portions are generous, so one needs not to over order!

    Being from Houston, after a time living here you begin to know what a good steak is. My dinner at Abe and Louie's changed all that. I had the bone in rib eye and ordered it medium rare. It came with a beautiful crust on the outside, a lovely shade of brown you only get with a good sear. The inside was cooked perfectly with a warm red center. I believe this is the first steak I've ever ordered in a restaurant that did not come out like it was still mooing. A perfect meal included the creamed spinach, which was quite good. I will definitely go there the next time in Boston. Now if I could only convince them to open in Houston....

    We went there for our 35th wedding anniversary. I mentioned this when I made our reservation. Everyone who served us were friendly and gracious. A few of them mentioned our anniversary. After we finished a truly delicious dinner (one of the best steaks ever!), one of the waiters delivered a cake with a lighted candle. The evening could not have been better. As a former bartender, I can appreciate excellent service. This restaurant did not disappoint!!

    Went here to celebrate our friends birthday, our server, Paul, was spectacular! The Chef came over because a friend at the table had a special food need. That does not happen often. He assures her that he would do everything to accommodate her needs. The two managers, Zeke and Yasmine also came to the table, WOW! The food was delicious!! Everything was perfect! They also sent out a gigantic piece of chocolate cake with a candle in it for my friends birthday! We all left there extremely happy!! We will definately be back!! Thanks to the people who made our experience GREAT!!! That kind of service is hard to get, and these people did it effortlessly!! A+

    Outstanding spot, great outdoor seating. Wonderful helpful hosts, impressive menu, nice indoor decor. From there, everything else was average to slightly over priced based solely upon the food and table service. The waiter team went missing from time to time and of course always when we want to request something. Compared to other high end steak houses, Abe and Louies didn't compare. I found my RibEye to be thin and gristly. They said it was prime, I beg to differ. We sat in a round both and needed a place to lay our jackets as the staff never offered to check them for us. The ledge behind the booth was covered in dust so placing our coats in our laps was the next best option. Been there, done that, sorry - not coming back.

    Had a wonderful brunch that led into dinner. Service was attentive and food especially the crab cakes, lump crab and my favorite Abe & Louie's salad were delicious. Grilled salmon and sweet potato are amazing. My friends who had the steaks and burgers were prepared to the exact requested temperature. Sonny and Nick are the incredible bartenders and made us feel like VIPs.

    After all the hype and after watching all the serving carts roll by with great-looking steaks on them as we waited for our table (seated at 9 for our 8:30 reservation) we were let down by the actual meals. My husband's bone-in filet was overdone, which for him is difficult to do, and my ribeye was great on flavor but very heavy on fat. My kids' prime rib was the best - a huge portion shared between two and perfectly cooked. We ordered brussels sprouts, sweet potato fries and sauted spinach as sides; the first two were great, but the spinach was so salty it was inedible and we sent it back. Overall a spotty performance - when paying those prices I expect more. Service was good, also at the bar, but the food could have been better.

    Second time we dine here, lunch, was excellent, dinner... Good overall. The food, although decent is no worth the price, $40 for 4 shrimp a 4 scallops and salty risotto. Steakes were prepared correctly, slapped on a dish, bland presentation at almost $50... Dinner for 3, one drink, no dessert, $250, a bit steep.

    Came here with my husband because a friend gave us a gift card as a wedding gift (great idea!). We felt a little cramped in our small table upstairs but not uncomfortably so. Food was amazing. Wagyu steak was to die for and recommend you splurge on the lobster mac n cheese side--so much lobster! Service was a little slow/disinterested, but it was a very busy Friday night.

    My daughter & I were looking forward to having lunch there during restaurant week. ..Very disappointing.Ordered from the pre fix menu.Ordered the filet medium and received rare..Only about five sliced of meat with a plate of tomatoes..Not a good value at all.. Felt very rushed..A eighty dollar lunch for two for what we had was ridiculous..Perhaps another restaurant living on it's reputation.

    Service was good but good was poor. We went during Restaurant week. The lettuce on the Ceasar salad was browning and dressed too heavily. The sole was full of bones. My friend almost choked on them. The filet was tender but lacked flavour. The chicken was dry. The creme brûlée was mealy, cold and the sugar on top was not crisp. Not a good start if they are looking to get us back to the restaurant . A huge disappointment .

Mouth watering delicious on a plate loaded with lip smacking French fries. Abe and Louie's is a must go to restaurant when in Boston.

    Before my youngest and I attended a Red Sox game, he had wanted to eat "somewhere fancy". Arrived more than 10 minutes early for reservation, but it was not busy and we were promptly seated. Mauricio, our server, was a bit coy to start, but provided excellent service and attention. Prices are up there, but food was very well prepared and presented. 1/2 Caesar Salad (Mauricio suggested the half) was good size and one of the best I have ever eaten. Chowder Bowl was very good, and youngest said the French Onion Cup was tasty. We both had Lobster Mac & Cheese. Portion was adequate sized, but could have had a few more Lobster chunks for the $25 price tag. Beer (Sam Seasonal) was reasonably priced ($6) as was the Lemonade.

    Abe and Louie's staff was plentiful and welcoming...professional yet friendly. The food was tremendous. I felt comfortable. High end restaurants can often have an aura of arrogance but every level of service here felt genuine and relaxed. The valet, maitre d', the bartenders, bus and waitstaff were all kind and efficient. For a 6pm reservation, on a night the Red Sox were out of town, traffic was light and valet made the process stress-free. I will come again.

    I chose Abe and Louie's based on previous posts on Open Table and it's nearness to my hotel. The decision was a good one. A colleague and I arrived early for our reservation but were quickly seated with no fuss. Our waiter was very attentive. We chose to share a large porterhouse, and each of us feel it was one of the best steaks we've ever tasted. The sides were just as tasty, and the evening was highly enjoyable. I'll be going there next time I'm in Beantown.

    I booked the event via open table and requested a window seat and mentioned we were celebrating an anniversary. When we arrived, they placed us on the 2nd floor next to the window, and gave us a complimentary dessert for our celebration! It was a nice surprise. The waiter was great, fun and funny and made the dining experience very enjoyable. The food was very good too, we ordered the crab cocktail for an appetizer then the Boca chopped salad. Both were good portions and delicious. Our steaks for dinner had a very good crust, the one mishap was they were slightly overcooked (I asked for medium and it was definitely medium-well). However, it was still juicy so I did not care. Great experience!

    Boston has many great restaurants, mostly Seafood and Italian. Unfortunately their Steakhouses just don't seem to measure up. With that being said, Abe and Louie's has the best steaks around. Treat yourself if you're in the mood for a very good steak and don't mind paying top dollar for the experience.
