    Whole staff was rude from hostess to waitress. Food was okay but expected more for the price we paid. Had a reservation for 6 and they tried to sit us at a table for 4. When I asked to move it seemed to put them out.

    The food was outstanding. We had the bone in filet mignon which was recommended by our waiter Tim. We also had the bacon and blue cheese appetizer which was amazing. We would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Boston. It is a little noisy but the food and service was fantastic.

    We have enjoyed excellent Sunday "brunches" at this old stand-by. However, this past Sunday, the service seemed slow, especially since it was not as crowded as on prior occasions. More of the problem was the food. My lobster omelette was so salty, I should have sent it back. However, I had waited so long for it, I did not want to wait any longer to eat. My wife was happy with her 3-ways eggs benedict.

    One of my favorite restaurants in Boston. Never a bad choice to go here. Only drawback is that the lobster always comes opened up already and therefore is sometimes not as hot as it could be. I prefer to open the lobster myself, I think at least that option should be available, especially at the premium price I would think it would be possible to customize an order in that way. Everything else is amazing though and I always recommend this restaurant to friends that come into town.

    Disappointing!! Waitress was unengaged. The assistant waitress was horrible. Person who brought the food said one of the steaks was a Delmonico. No one in our party of 6 ordered a Delmonico. She brought it back to the table she was serving the food from. Looked at it again and said it was a Ribeye. Not really sure what we got

    We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, I had requested a table in a remote area that didn't have a lot of foot traffic passing by. They held our reservation for 25 minutes, despite being very busy. Upon arrival we were escorted to our table on the second floor that was perfectly located in the corner overlooking Boylston st. Our waiter was personable, efficient and knowledgeable he went above and beyond by treating us to a complimentary dessert for our special occasion !! A lovely evening with great food, it is pricey but in my opinion worth the money.

    If you are looking for a great steak in Boston, Abe & Louie's is the place. Although there are a number of national steak chain restaurants in Boston, Abe & Louie's gives you the same quality with local flair. The menu is very similar to the national chains, but the food is as good if not better. Excellent service. Great atmosphere, centrally located. Reservations are a must.

    I requested a quiet table My wife ordered the Filet Mignon medium cooked perfectly I the Aged Prime NY Sirloin medium rare. Right on queue we were served the bottle of wine which was at the perfect temperature. Mine steak was a thing of beauty, 16 oz of 2 inch thick center cut perfection. We enjoyed our meals and never once felt rushed. Our waitress brought us over a “Skillet Cookie” which is a warm chocolate chip cookie, with chocolate sauce, candied pecans and vanilla ice cream. I never told her about our Anniversary, it was mentioned in the notes I left on Open Table. They obviously listened and took the time to make sure we had the quiet table and the dessert which was on the house. This place is a must for all to enjoy. Valet Park

    On the last day of our vacation, we looked for a good lunch spot before heading to the Airport. We enjoyed a nice pace to the service (not rushed) and very attentive staff, without being pushy. The food and wine were excellent. We both had seafood (clams/crab) as an appertizer and both had a steak as entrée. Steaks cooked to perfection and the sides were excellent. We felt the experience rounded off our vacation well and we would definitely go back again.

    The food at Abe and Louie's is the #1 reason to go, but once you get there, the experience is a close second. Sitting upstairs with a good view of Boylston st, the setting is perfect for a dinner with someone you care about. You can talk to each other without having to shout and though you are seated close to the people around you, it is not like you are sitting at the same table, which is the feel of some Boston restaurants. It is not a stuffy atmosphere like other high end places, and you feel like you can just relax and enjoy the top shelf menu and wine list without having to keep your nose high in the air and look snooty to fit in

    I am in Boston perhaps once a year and I always take time to have at least one meal at Abe & Louies. Great food, probably my favorite restaurant anywhere! My most recent trip I spent a week in Montreal after Boston and found the French onion soup at Abe & Louies unmatched by any restaurant in Montreal.

    Wow! We're from NY and thought we had the best steak there until Abe and Louis! It was my husband's 50th bday celebration with our two teenage sons. They ordered the rib eye and I ordered lamb chops. And for sides: spinach and mushrooms and French onion soup. We took home leftovers and didn't expect it to keep but wow! Double the pleasure. The only disappointment was the beef veg soup. Tasted like canned. The house salad was stupendous along with my lamb chops! Worth every penny!

    Abe and Louis has all I want in a restaurant. Making a reservation through Open table could not have been easier and the reminder 24 hours before always helps. And Newbury Street is always a pleasure to stroll down. A business friend and I started with a martini which is served in the ice on test tubes. The best way in the world to serve drinks that need to be chilled before serving. We both had tuna which was cooked as requested ( med-rare). The family sized sides were just right. The service was attentive and professional but we never felt rushed. If you want a top-of-the-line dining experience this restaurant needs to be on you list.

    The meals never disappoint, and Abe & Louie's has become our family "go to" restaurant for special celebrations. On Sunday night, we celebrated the 21st birthdays of both our son and his girlfriend. When we asked our waiter if we could add a candle to two of the desserts, he immediately asked why we didn't tell him sooner, and then proceeded to treat us with champagne to toast the new adults! Every dish was a delight, from the Caesar salad dressing to the au poivre filet and the cajun blackened swordfish to the vegetable side dishes. Can't wait for my birthday later this fall!
