Because it was Father's Day, they weren't serving their regular brunch menu.
Very disappointed! I love the ahi tuna burger and because they didn't have it, I ordered a tuna appetizer.
It was a very small portion and the taste was off- the tuna tasted - very chemical tasting and not fresh. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to spoil Father's Day.

Father’s Day. Brunch. Two in our party ordered steaks, unfortunately they were dry and tasteless. French toast was terrific! Service is always pretty good.

The food was excellent but a little pricey. I get the name is renowned but I've had delicious food that wasn't as costly. I took my husband for Father's day, not saying anything bad I would only visit on special occasion. Sorry

Great food and staff! Decor is a bit outdated and a remodel would help this great restaurant. The one major issue I have is the size of the beverages. For one cocktail $14 the glass is extremely small. There is no perceived value. I know it’s Boston but, cmon guys bigger glasses! Once again food was a 10 out of 10! Cocktails were tasty. My server Yousef was extremely prompt and friendly.

The Steak was VERY good, but the sides were pretty bad. Our asparagus was pretty burnt. It was edible, but when you pay $12 for a side, you expect it to be prepared correctly. We had to ask for our wine to be poured 2-3 times. They never removed our empty cocktail glasses.

A&L is always our go to special occasion place. The steaks, salads and sides were great, as always. As was our waiter, however he was not very attentive as he was clearly busy taking care of A LOT of other tables. My drink (strawberry mojito) was the worst I have ever had and we were really sad that the delicious homemade rolls have been replaced by a run of the mill bread basket.

Not at this time. Food was unevenly cooked. Pork chop was way rare. One side forgotten, another au gratin potatoes, bland.
Got the drink wrong the first time
And my ever favorite brought lemons when lime was requested.
This was a bad night for us there. They comped us $50. I’ll try them once more to see.

My swordfish was over cooked but I did not have the opportunity to tell the server as I was in an intense business discussion.
The noice level was high which also made it difficult to talk business.

We had to ask for menus, then had to ask for waters. Table behind us was vaping an electronic cigarette. My friend has a gluten allergy and asked if she could have a side salad instead of an English muffin, a very simple request, server hesitated and said he would see what he could do. I will say all bussers/food runners were kind, attentive and professional. Hostesses were also very helpful assisting us with our stroller and getting us a high chair. The food was ok but overall was definitely not the experience you’d expect.

Everything was great for we had an outdoor table for four on one of the best nights
of the year thus far. We had a minor gift card issue that was resolved by the manager
and did not take away from the great atmosphere, food and company that we had. We Highly
recommend Abe and Louie's for this place is the Best. Thanks again to all the staff they were
awesome.

I have been to Abe he was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We started with onion soup and the A pretty much as good as these items get. I had the ribeye, my wife had the lobster casserole. It's hard to go wrong with ribeye no matter where you order it, but this was one of the best steaks I've had in years. Very tasty and perfectly cooked. The lobster casserole is mis-named. It's not lobster floating in a creamy sauce; it's chunks of lobster with a little breads crumbs and seasoning. Fantastic. We had the cauliflower steak and sautéed spinach sides. Both outstanding.

I knew we would have a very good dinner, but it turned out to be one of the best dinners we've had in months if not years. An all-around great experience.

We went for a birthday celebration and it was amazing as always! The french onion soup is a must try; the steaks melt in your mouth and you have to try the "hash brown potato". Great service and great food! Only recommendation would be to have a drink menu available

We took our family to celebrate our son’s college graduation. We are 58/59 year old business people who have dined many places. The service we received was the best we’ve ever had, in any restaurant. I regret to say that I do not remember our waiter’s name, but deep thanks for serving our family on this big occasion. Our family of all boys thinks this is the best steak house in Boston and we have been to all of them.

I have been coming here for 20 years. No, I am not a steak person. Ever since the previous owner sold, the food quality has been going down the drain. Poor quality meat, and no one knows how to cook. Medium rare to well done, and they charged me for that crappy piece of meat. Never again. You have became a tourist trap, very sad.

1. Poor table location. Asked to move and was accommodated to a slightly better table.

2. Unable to get the wine we wanted. Said they were out for months even though the place next door had it 2 days prior.

3. Ordered a seafood tower and they did not want to bring us the tower for some reason. They wanted to do it on plates for some reason. We insisted the tower come.

The weather itself made it a perfect for outside dining. The food was good, however the service and overall experience with staff left much to be desired. It took forever to get water.. food or a server to even look at us. I think this place has gone through a major staff change because it was NOTHING like it used to be.
