Great Boston restaurant now coming out of Covid restrictions. The waiter was a little tired like everyone else wearing a mask.

I was running a bit behind, and Abe and Louie's staff assured me they would hold my reservation. I even requested to sit by the fire place, and it made the date with my boyfriend even MORE intimate! Highly recommended seating. Abe and Louie's became our new favorite restaurant. We got the Porter House steak for two, creamed spinach with pork belly and onion strings, and Abe's Lobster Mac and Cheese. We polished off every single dish! We are still RAVING about the clam chowder. Hands down probably the best I've ever had - and I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life! Thank you so much for the amazing experience. We will be back for sure!

We visited this restaurant for Easter brunch. The service was impeccable but the food left much to be desired. We had Two orders of chicken and waffles one eggs Benedict and one beer. The price was relatively high at $130.
The restaurant was very nicely decorated and clean and appeared to be following Covid mandates.

Very accommodating.

Water, drinks, bread and anything else you want is addressed right away. And they don’t forget when you ask for something. Service was 5 stars.

I had my rib eye boneless. It was amazing. Garlic mashed potatoes, escargot, tuna tartare and Bloody Mary were all great.

Can’t say enough about the service from Victor and Jon S.

Our server Alain was great and very attentive. Ordered our Filets medium rare and they were over cooked to borderline medium-well. Our sides of creamed spinach, grilled asparagus, broccoli and mashed potatoes for our group of 6 were underwhelming and needed salt. One of the bussers spilled mignonette from the oysters all over my son and didn’t say a word. When we asked them what it was they said it was just “water”. Infuriating. The manager did try to make amends and was very apologetic. Overall, I would not come back to receive such subpar quality food.
