High quality establishment. Beautifully cooked steak (Filet Mignon) with tasty accompaniments. Great wine selection from reasonable to expensive prices.
Service was very good and the waiter knowledgeable.
On the pricey side but that was in relation to a conversion from USD to GBP.
Overall, a very good restaurant with a lovely atmosphere.

Our annual family Christmas dinner is almost always here. Food and atmosphere are terrific. Wine prices are high but that seems to be true across most steakhouses.

This place is always delicious. Through no fault of the restaurant, Sunday brunch brings out lots of families with screaming children which is not a plus when dining at a more expensive restaurant. Add to that parents who need to walk their children up and down the aisles while the servers are bringing out hot plates and moving. Will probably opt for the later dining times in the future to avoid the irresponsible parents.

Felt a little put off by the hostess but the server was fantastic. We went for brunch and had the trio of Egg Benedict (steak, crab & lobster). The lobster could have been slightly warmer and the eggs also for my tastes, but otherwise the flavor was outstanding.

The service was excellent as Matt, the waiter, was very attentive and helpful. My girlfriend’s ahi tuna was excellent and a good portion (as it should’ve been) for a $40 entree but mine, a 16 oz NY sirloin was smaller than it should’ve been for $53.00. Overall, the total experience was very good and while a larger steak would have been nice, we were satisfied with it.

Our Food, a porterhouse steak for 2 , was not a “wow “ thing. I have had better tasting. Food was very over salted.Also, kind of disappointed that beef is corn fed . They Should look in to offering organically raised and grass fed . Service was good, but our table for 2 was crowded and my chair was basically in the middle a very busy corridor to the kitchen.

I have been to this restaurant several times. It is always a place that we seek out for the steaks but the prices are high , maybe too high and they do not have modestly priced wines. It is also loud and unless you are on the sides it is too hard to have a conversation.

Wonderful experience for my wife’s 50th Birthday. Food and service were impeccable as usual. Clam Chowder is incredibly smooth and creamy. Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked with a nice hint of seasoning. Au Gratin potatoes were a great side. At the end, our server brought over a very large complimentary slice of chocolate cake with a birthday candle and vanilla ice cream. The cake was incredibly thick and rich. Abe & Louie’s continues to be our family’s favorite place for special occasions

Everytime I go ti Boston I go for the roasted cauliflower which is my favorite, however this time was not as always, maybe to buttery. Lunch is extremely expensive, it is kind of the same price we would pay for dinner. But definitely a Boston fave

Atmosphere was perfect for a date, seating was comfortable. The food was not cooked as ordered. And due to the volume of customers being served, there was minimal attention paid to our individual needs. It wasn't until over 30 minutes had passed that we were able to report the under cooked meat.

Had a great time. Drinks made right, staff were friendly and despite being busy were considerate and great sense of humor. We had steaks that were spot on accurate for temperatures and great flavor.
Can’t wait to go again.

My daughter and I had a wonderful diner there after seeing a play at the nearby Lyric Stage. We both had clam chowder and she had filet mignon, while I ordered lamb. Everything was cooked to perfection and delicious, and the service was friendly but not overbearing.

The restaurant was busy at 5:40 on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, with a comfortable atmosphere, upscale but not stuffy.

Good place for a great meal on a special occasion.

We had a phenomenal experience at Abe & Louis this time. For cocktails I had a strawberry gin cocktail and hubby had a gin & tonic - both were well-balanced and very tasty. For an appetizer, we chose the special which was shrimp & scallops wrapped in bacon with a cauliflower puree - heaven!

For dinner, we each had fillet -- I had the 8oz, hubby had the 10oz - both were perfect medium rare plus and so flavorful, with mashed potato and grilled asparagus. Delicious with a Rodney Strong cabernet.

Our server, Anthony, was great - he let us pace the meal, was attentive but not too much, we never felt rushed even though it was a busy Friday night.

Overall, a perfect night out -- we hadn't tried Abe & Louis for a while, it is definitely back in the Back Bay rotation of restaurants!

I've had better steaks (and service) at local sports bars. Food quality was nowhere near comparable to Capital Grille, Strega or other local premier options. Very disappointing, will not return.

We truly enjoyed our recent Thanksgiving dinner! The food was superb & the staff was welcoming. I appreciated that it was a very traditional Thanksgiving menu & not some "clever spin" on a meal that's worked for generations. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Even so, my dining companion broke tradition & had a perfectly cooked steak...he was glad he did. I'll be back just for the creamed corn!
