It’s always a spectacular dinner at Abe and Louie’s. Exceptional beverage program and the wine program operates at the highest level. Come for for a special bottle, Bennie will oblige you. Furthermore don’t miss Wine Wednesdays for amazing food and wine pairings!

From the kitchen Chef Danny and his team execute time and time again. Elevated steakhouse fair and local seafood.

Ask for John, he is one of our favorite servers and is a true professional. The entire staff works likes clockwork Highly recommend!

Great steak house, very high end. Got the porterhouse with mushrooms, asparagus, and the lobster Mac n cheese. Everything was top notch and cooked to perfection, especially the steak. The steak just melted in your mouth, it was so perfectly seasoned also! The only thing we were not the biggest fan of was the lobster mac; it had plenty of lobster, just wish the cheese flavor was stronger and it needed a lot of salt bc it was just a tad bit bland. Besides that though, it was the perfect experience, service was excellent, and they had a great wine selection as well. We will definitely be back next time we’re in Boston! Thanks again you guys!

Birthday lunch on a quiet afternoon. Difficult to hear the waiter through the multiple masks, but the food came quickly and tasted very good. A little pricey for what it was, and I hate soft drinks served from 10oz bottle... no refills and silly expensive.

Great fine dining steak house. Had a reservation. Was seated within 20 min. Food was excellent as was the martini and the wine. The staff were seasoned staff and didn't miss a beat!
I was surprised that there isn't more of a dress code for such a fine dining experience. I would not think that faded baggy jeans, Adidas sneakers t-shirts and yoga pants would be appropriate attire in a classy and elegant restaurant place where a steaks can average 50$ and a meal for two can easily cost $200 without dessert. I'm glad we were seated upstairs because downstairs was a bit too noisy.... again... some people not only don't know how to dress for such a place... but also do not know how to use their inside voice... goes with the dress code I'm afraid. I would easily go back next time in Boston. I will definitely ask to be seated upstairs in a more quiet part of the restaurant.

Birthday celebration - the host and dining staff were very hospitable and went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Appreciate that! The sides are larger than expected, so will order to share in the future and the steaks were great!

Came for a birthday. I specifically asked for a good table but we were sat near the cash register even though it wasn’t busy. The staff could’ve been more professional especially at this price point and the steak was good but most of the food seemed pretty bland

We had the best experience. Our server was more then wonderful. He gave great suggestions and offered us a tour of the two private rooms so we can plan a birthday dinner over the summer.

The food was amazing and the drinks were the best.

This was our first indoor dining in over a year to celebrate a special occasion at one of our favorite places. Service, food, and our comfort did not disappoint.
It was nice to have the bread basket back and somewhat similar to the original.

This was probably one of the best dining experiences at A&L
Brie and Michelle at the bar made me feel beyond welcome and their energy and service where outstanding! The food was delicious as always, ordered 1/2 the wedge, a filet mignon and 2 half sides...everything was incredible. Thank you for the amazing dining, I will be back, time and time again.
