    I have been to Abe & Louie's several times, but last night was disappointing. There were 5 of us, and I will only speak of my entrée. I started out with a Caesar salad, which I will say was very fresh, crisp and delicious. I was not starving so I decided to order one Colossal Stone Crab, figuring that would be more than enough. Now mind you, I eat crabs often and usually order the colossal. When the plate arrived the crab on the plate which was cracked and served with the usual mustard sauce, was maybe the size of a medium to large stone crab. At the price of $55.00 per colossal crab, I was shocked. One other person at the table also ordered the same. I called the waiter over and the chef came out. He down graded it to a jumbo at $43.00 after I complained. I have now learned that when you order Stone Crabs, have them bring out the different types, which most restaurants do, so then I can see what I am paying for. Our other friends that ordered steak, & really enjoyed their meals. I really don't know if I will be running back so soon.

    A friend & I celebrate our birthdays annually because they are so close together & as we do each year, we choose another special restaurant to share together for the first time. We have both been to Abe & Louis in Boston on many occasions, but neither of us have ever dined at the Boca Raton location. We weren't disappointed. We experienced the same high quality food, service, & ambiance that we hoped we'd find. Even in Boston, Abe & Louis is a SPECIAL place & we'll keep it that way in Boca Raton as well.

    Flew in from Connecticut to visit family and chose restaurant based on Newspaper review we had seen weeks earlier. We had heard of the sister restaurant in Boston but had never been there. Went for a 9:00 p.m. reservation on a Thursday night. Restaurant was still busy but we were seated immediately. Observations- Service very attentive; Bread excellent but should have more than just 1 of each type and they should offer to bring more; Soup and salads were solid; After we ordered the waiter came back 5 minutes later as they realized they were out of Prime Rib. We both had ordered it. He apologized as they clearly should have known they were out. Had no idea how they ran out, especially on a Thursday night. The Porterhouse we ordered as replacement was excellent and their offer to cut off the bone and slice it in back reminded us of Carmine's Porterhouse in NYC; Sides were decent but unremarkable; Offered us a free dessert as apology for the Prime Rib mistake and then charged us for it. Overall was a good experience but the few hiccups were unexpected and avoidable.

    I came to the restaurant early with my wife and were the first to be seated in the empty restaurant. Shortly thereafter the restaurant started to fill and customers were quickly seated at tables adjacent to ours and the noise level grew rapidly where I could hear everyones conversations except ours. The food and service were exceptional but we could not wait to leave the restaurant quickly enough because of the noise.

    Just keeping it basic; the food & service were outstanding, though the service was slightly bordering on making us feel rushed. However, once the dessert list arrived our server told us to relax, take our time finishing our wine & he'd be back to talk to us. He held true to his word, giving us 7 - 10 minutes before he returned to take our dessert order. Do not even bother trying any other dessert other than the butterscotch bread pudding, which was like nothing we've ever had before. As for the entrees, I had the bone-in filet mignon & my wife had the veal chop, both of which were excellent. It was our first visit to Abe & Louie's but certainly won't be our last............................

    The restaurant is extremely popular, so much so that without reservations people were being turned away. That said, the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation with friends at dinner. But the food was outstanding. We did have a problem with the check, as we were charged for more wine than actually consumed and we were charged the wrong price.

    Our first experience at Abe and Louie's in Boca will definitely not be our last! Everything was superior, from the service to the food. We had such a pleasant and accommodating server (Charlie), the wine was delicious (as was the food) and the portions were enormous. Their house salad was a refreshing change from the norm and was just perfect. Everyone enjoyed their meals (steak and seafood dishes), right down to the bread selection. This place is a true gem!

  • Best Burger in South Florida

    Dined on 10/31/2014
    As in the past, this restaurant serves up one of the best burgers in South Florida, topped with a choice of cheeses, grilled onion, caramelized onion, and tomato. Declined the fries and ordered grilled asparagus instead. While it was tasty, it was rather tough and fibrous, especially the thick end, which probably should have been shaved.

    All the food was delicious and perfectly prepared. And I don't usually complain, but after perusing the menu ahead of time, I knew what to expect. However, when the check came, I'm glad I was sitting. Every a la carte item added up and the glasses of wine and cocktails just added up to a check that just seemed off the chart. Unlike other Boca Steakhouses that offer a combination of sides, salads and a main course, here at Abe and Louie's, buckle up. All of us enjoyed the meal, the service, the ambience, but after thinking about how much I spent, it affected my attitude about recommending this restaurant to anyone without preparing them for a wildly excessively priced meal. I probably will not be back.

    This was probably the best service I have ever received in a restaurant. The server and his team were just amazing. My steak was a bit overcooked and overall the prices were a bit high but that's to be expected for such fine dining. I would highly recommend Abe and Louies if you are in Boca.

    We were with family... so sharing was easy... the bone in ribeye was excellent but the veal chop was fantastic... Sea bass was good... could have been thicker to get more of the flakiness which is the signature of that fish... it was very plentiful and tasty but could have been better... Lobster Mac... nice idea great flavor... needed more lobster for $25.

    We planned our dinner well in advance, three plus weeks to take our daughter for dinner, while visiting Lynn University for Parents Weekend. Even with a standing reservation we were initially placed in the back room amongst a large noisy party and in the middle of the door way. After notifying the hostess we were moved to another table in the front section. Dinner went well, good feed and hopefully the evening was saved.

    The food was good; the prices were ridiculously high. I know it is a high-end restaurant but I was disappointed. There were high points, but not equal to the cost. The table was poorly placed at the entry way to a back dining room. We felt like we were in the way. The room was very loud most of the time. And there really was nothing outstanding about the main courses - except the prices. Two notable exceptions - the lobster mac and cheese and the chocolate chip cookie dessert. We went because we had a gift card ($75) and spent that plus and additional $100 cash. I'm sorry, but I won't be back. It wasn't horrible, but the experience didn't support the bill.

We were greeted very nicely when we went through the front door & our waiter Vincent provided us with outstanding service. Our appetizers (clams & king crab), steaks (prime rib & delmonico) & desert (peach crisp) were prepared very well & as ordered. We will be going back & I would highly recommend anybody looking for a steakhouse restaurant visit Abe & Louie's.

    Boca has no shortage of steak houses but this is always consistent. The service is always top notch, attentive and professional with Bob. The food is always well prepared and any special requests accommodated. The rib eye is fantastic and the bacon appetizer a favorite with my family. The bar is always friendly and welcoming and a great place to start the evening. We have been coming for years and we feel it is the best of the bunch in Boca. You simply cannot get much better.
