At first that sat a party of 3 at a table for 6. After speaking with management then moved us to a more appropriate table downstairs. After that our experience was much better - Food, service and ambiance much better downstairs.

Abe & Louie's is becoming our "go-to" in Boston. Great location near our favorite hotel and you just can't beat the steak tartare and great service, plus a list of "sides" that nearly beats out a filet.

They were so rude. There’s no sign at all and I wasn’t even asked while entering. But almost when I was about to eat my meal I was transgressed by the hostess who asked me to take my hat off.

I visited the restaurant twice during my time in Boston last weekend (9/13-9/15). Both meals and the serious was fabulous. On the first visit I ordered the Bone in Rib Eye which was so tender, filling and juicy . I took the left overs to the hotel for my wife. On Sat I had the Blackend Salmon which was good but not fabulous because the blackening was a bit heavy and somewhat salty. My wife had the salmon on a piece of Salmon and she said it was incredible. I will plan to return there for dinner when I come back to Boston!

The only problem with A&L is the portions are to big, I ended up by giving my steak to homeless guy on Boylston Avenue. Next time I will ask for half a portion and hope that will be ok.

I would have rated it higher, but the noise level was quite high. It was difficult to hear what the others were saying. If you don't care to have conversation, then the restaurant is very good.

I'm never disappointed coming here. The priciness keeps it from being a regular dinner spot, but every once in a while it is worth saving some extra for a nice night out with my wife. The steak is the best in Boston and I always get it when I come here. The atmosphere is everything I'd want in a romantic night on the town. From appetizers to entree's, the food is all around outstanding.

Excellent appetizers (crab meat cocktail, tuna tartare), excellent steaks and sides. Wait staff is very attentive, mixed drinks were tasty.

Only thing is that the restaurant started quiet around 5:45PM on a Tuesday, and became extremely loud and boisterous within an hour. Couldn't hear my dining partner anymore. Not related to the restaurant, just the general ambiance, so I wouldn't go here for a quiet romantic dinner.

Been many many times before and will continue. It’s our high end fallback for lunch in the city. But this time I didn’t like the waiter’s table help bringing the courses. He aggressively even borderline rudely moved plates and glasses around, even said to my d-in-law when she tried to make room not to do that, I’ll do it. And he left my wife’s filet there even though she was barely through her chopped salad. But our waiter was very good, attentive, and your bartender was great before we sat down in the dining room. He topped off my Allagash after I bravely asked him what the 30-year old MacCallan went for. Yikes.

First class from top to bottom! This was a business meeting that needed to impress and they delivered. I cant imagine the work and detail that goes into plating 15 different pieces of meat all cooked differently at the same time and right on target. Amazing.
