Our waiter Evan was fabulous from beginning to end. Everything was hot and delicious. Visiting from New York, and we were very happy with our choice.

Main dish was fine, asparagus side dish undercooked, espresso coffee was cold when it got to the table, bread was never delivered to the table, overall a mediocre experience

I have been coming here for years. But the last 4 times, the food is just average. The size of the portions are huge, but the attention to detail is missing. I asked for crispy bacon with my lobster BLT and it came out hardly cooked - soggy and fatty.

Salads lack creativity and flavor. And even though our waiter was trying hard, the wait time was over 30 minutes for lunch.

Not sure I will be back.

When I lived in Boston I would go to Abe & Louie's at least once a week, mainly to eat their wonderful Prime Rib. Even after I left Boston in 2000 I would find reasons to go back, again mainly to enjoy the Prime Rib. On this, my most recent visit, I was dismayed to find that Prime Rib is no longer on the menu! The other entree's were good, but no outstanding. There are now many steakhouses in Boston and there is nothing on the menu that distinguishes this restaurant from all its competitors. Add to that the annoyingly loud background and the closeness of the tables, I"m afraid there is no longer a good reason to go back to Abe & Louie's.

Food is all ways very good. The best steak is bone in filet. One person in our party ordered her steak med- rear and it came out medium. Manger came over and took it off the check. Kudos to her!

I’m from the Chicago area and this was very reminiscent of a Gibson’s atmosphere, but cozier and livelier. The staff were incredibly attentive and kind. The food was excellent - I had gotten a cup of the clam chowder (a must) and the halibut on special - both mine and my friend’s meals were excellent, I only wish I had more room in my stomach to keep on eating. We sat in Kevin’s section, he was fun and had the classic Boston charm. The restaurant is pretty noisy, but that sort of thing doesn’t bother me. If I’m ever back in the area I’ll be back, and I’ll certainly recommend it to other friends and family!

Went with my husband and another couple to celebrate my husband's birthday, and we couldn't have had a better time. The staff was great, very accommodating and friendly, but especially our waiter Bobby... he was the best!!!!! Food was outstanding. We will most-definitely return. Highly recommend.

Me and my GF order filet mignon, one for each, and the mac and cheese and everything was amazing! The meat was super delicious and the waiter was amazingly nice to us at all times. Definitely coming back to try more of their plates.

We had tickets to a late afternoon concert at the BSO and opted for Abe it was cooked to perfect medium rare and was buttery and delicious. At the end of the meal, we were surprised and delighted when our server brought us a complimentary dessert in celebration of our anniversary, a large slice of intensely chocolate cake with a side of vanilla ice cream. Heavenly! Aside from a very minor hiccup (we had to ask for our bread basket), service was excellent and very professional. We love the vibe, the well-prepared unpretentious food, the service and the ambiance. We’ll be back!

This was our second time here and it was fabulous. The service is impeccable and the food was outstanding. My husband and I make a yearly overnight trip to Boston every October and we will definitely be dining at Abe & Louie’s again next year.

Abe & Louie's never disappoints. Steaks are done to perfection. Sides are large and excellent. Server was everything I hope for...friendly, there when I want him and not there when I don't. Sure, I'd like the check to be a little cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

Dinner at Abe and Louie's with friends in from out of town. Never disappoints. Food was fantastic. Bacon with blue cheese, crab cakes, and carpaccio to start. All great choices and recommended by our waiter Blady, who was a total rock star! Had been a while since our last visit and glad we chose to come back. Better than ever and great choice if you are looking for a great experience in the Back Bay.

All went well except for the fish I ordered was served as steak. It was quickly resolved and the dinner ended without any further issues.

We enjoyed the evening.

The clam chowder was outstanding maybe best ever and the cream corn was delicious.
We eat steaks all across the country from A5 wagyu to regular and the Australian wagyu we had there was 1 out of 5.
There other steaks maybe outstanding but that one was not. To be fair it is really thick and always harder cooking those ones.
