It was so nice to come back to Abe & Louie's. With the pandemic it has been over 20 months since we have been there. The service, the staff and the food was simply amazing as always.

Great special occasion steakhouse. Food was terrific. Lovely service. We were seated right next to a work station which was the only downside. But it was a delightful evening and we loved it.

Love Georgi our server, love the food. Outside hostess was a dream and so nice. Inside hostess was curt and rude and not helpful. Luckily everything else made up for it.

Lobster Savannah was excellent. Bone-in Ribeye, although cooked well, was bland and poor in value.

Our food delivery was staggered which is not the goal. The portions were very large and the fish was fresh and tasty. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and we were happy to sit on the terrace on a nice day.

Didn’t even make a point that it was my boyfriends birthday. Waiter didn’t even say happy birthday when I made sure to tell the hostess. Also the steak was way too salty and had too much pepper

Both the food and the service were terrific. I ordered a dry aged steak and my wife ordered sea bass. It was our anniversary and they surprised us with one of the best chocolate cakes we've ever had. The only reason I didn't give Abe & Louie's five stars is because their price points are about 20 percent too high for the terrific, but not mind blowing, overall quality. You could pay as much at Mistral or Grill 23 and have an even better experience.

Sadly I was hoping this was going to be a little treat of an experience for me during the marathon weekend. The service was slow and didn’t seem very knowledgeable, and forgot things a couple times. I was dining as a single female and got the feeling my experience would have been different as a single man. My bill was over $100 for an entree, salad, one side and one glass of wine. I’m into paying for a great meal and service but I think I will pass on this restaurant in the future.

Outstanding service by waiter Alain. Hands down the best service we have had at a restaurant, ever - and we have traveled the world. We have two small children and he was very patient and aware of the challenges that dining with children presents. He made sure to put in their food first so that we could feed them and later enjoy our meal. He made excellent recommendations on wines. Pleasant and professional. We enjoyed our experience and did not feel rushed despite the restaurant being full on a Friday night. Food was excellent, as it has been in our previous visits. Thank you Alain!
