Abby Lane Ratings and Reviews
We went here for a Valentine's dinner/pre show drinks. My wife couldn't eat her clam chowder because she was battling a stomach bug. Our server, Erin noticed and made her a magic concoction of soda water and bitters and it saved the night, and she was able to see blue man group instead if having to go home sick.
Stopped in for a quick bite with my wife before going to a show. Waiter was attentive and helpful with suggestions. She checked up on how we were doing at just the right times. Ordered your basic pub fare, nachos and cheeseburgers which were both well above pub average including well done fries. Their version of an Old Fashioned was delicious, and to top it off they played 80s music for a bit of high school nostalgia! Will definitely keep in mind when I find myself near the theater district.
Went there before seeing a show at the Wilbur Theater.
My only complaint is that they have high tables near the front, and the spacing between the tables is REALLY narrow. You need to be a size 0 to get inbetween the tables.
They have great drinks and I really enjoyed the cacciatore chicken over creamy polenta.
i am a BIG fan of jason santos - so this was especially disappointing. the service was really just OK by the server. the 3 hosts were disinterested - they would minimally engage if you initiated contact. my dinner was a terrible disappointment - lousy salad dressing - just a bunch of lettuce leaves coated with a creamy dressing (not my preferred or expected dressing for a caesar) - a few streak tips thrown along the side of the dish bb the lettuce (although they were cooked well) and a small serving of the advertised roasted brussels sprouts. very unappealing presentation....not great taste. our server never once asked how things were. this is our 2nd poor experience there - i tried it again bc i am such a jason santos fan. now i am done and will not ever recommend it.
This was a perfect place for seven of us to have dinner before a dance performance next door at the Shubert Theatre. Six of us are over 75 and one a high school senior. We all enjoyed our meals. The noise level was a bit of a problem for the older diners in our party, but overall the service was great and the food was delicious.
Went for late night dinner following show at the Schubert. Very pleasantly surprised! Food was delicious and somewhat creative for a gastro pub type restaurant. Excellent cocktails and good selection of wine and beer. Vibrant vibe. Will definitely go again next time we're in the theater district.
Service was a struggle. We went here prior to Blue Man Group Show and let our server know immediately that we going to show. It was a 7:30 show and we arrived at 5:30. There was a big crowd and not enough servers on staff. Food took a while to come out (over an hour) and we had trouble getting our server back so we could cash out.
Food was very good but do not go here if you have to be somewhere timely.
Food was delicious. Lots of great options on apps made it hard to choose! Could use an extra entree option, but they all looked delicious as well. Fun and rustic atmosphere. Food was delivered quickly - almost too quickly as mains came out literally within minutes of getting our apps.
We will definitely go back.
Although my meal was initially undercooked, the staff at Abby Lane handled the situation flawlessly. They cooked me an entirely new meal and gave me a basket of fries while I waited. The server was very attentive and everyone in the restaurant was friendly. Would definitely go back.
restaurant in the theatre district should be prepared for pre-theatre rush - they were not. made a reservation in advance for special lunch with mom - tried to seat us right at door on frigid day. not sure what happened to reservation request. mom's flatbread was burnt. took forever to get drinks. my avocado BLT was just ok. will try another place in theatre district next time!
The wife and I had dinner and a show. It was 5:45 so it’s crowded on a Friday night. The waitress was busy which wasn’t a problem. The only 2 things I didn’t care for was the the Entree came before the appetizers. We both had burgers for the main dish. I wanted well done and the wife medium well. They came out medium rare. As soon as you took a bite you knew it. I ate it anyway. I’d go back only if I’m at the theatre. Won’t go out of my way.
Reservation made for pre-theater dinner.
Arrived early but was offered a table right away next to the door- a cold windy evening made it less than desirable- was offered a table opposite the door/ not much different. I noticed a table 20 feet further away and asked for that. Was told in a very clipped voice that it was reserved. I thought I had a reservation too but accepted the table opposite the door.
The food(flatbreads) was very good as was the table service. After eating, I noticed the “reserved” table was still unoccupied. I guess I didn’t offer an incentive to the host who left his personality somewhere else.
Oh Yes, we passed on the only desert offering. DONUTS!
Great location for theater but little more to offer unless you like 18” wide tables.
The kind folks at Abby Lane went out of their way to find a great table for our expanding group. We had awesome appetizers - loved the nachos - and a wonderful table overlooking Tremont Street. This is a perfect spot when going to a show. Abby Lane our new go-to spot when heading to the theater district.
The food was very good. We tried the calamari which was pure perfection. The steaks tips are fantastic and a must try. The noise level is quite loud, however it's trendy and fun. Loved the convenience to dine prior to going to the theater. We will most definitely return the next time we are in the area.
The restaurant was very convenient for a pre-show lunch. There is a small kids menu and it was very nice. The front of the house hostess was rude when she sat us and the party that came in after us. The wait staff took better care of the patrons. I was disappointed by that.
The menu is different and there doesn't seem to be too much to choose from anymore. I remember going last year and it was much better. Hostesses weren't friendly and kind of snotty. Food was very mediocre and I left feeling disappointed and Unsatisifed. Probably won't be going back.
