Always exceptional! It’s comforting to have something consistently wonderful in these crazy times! I love the wines by the glass and the shrimp and lobster omelette at lunch. Also, they are very careful with and gracious about food allergies. The patio is awesome.

Hoping for a nice anniversary dinner last Saturday but instead got poor service, cold food, and obscenely overpriced steak. One of the “specials” was the Tomahawk steak. Of course they don’t tell you the price on specials, but $140 for a steak? Are you serious? It was undercooked and the béarnaise sauce and broccoli were cold. This steak was big... any good waiter would’ve told me that the steak was meant for two people. Look, I don’t mind paying big money on good, high quality food but $140??? So pretentious!! Shame on that establishment. Way too many good steak houses out there to waste my time on that one.

Service was excellent! Food was phenomenal as were the cocktails! Wish there were outdoor speakers for bkground music, there was a table near us that played bkground music on their phone and we enjoyed it. It was our 22nd anniversary and Abe’s staff made it really special! They wrote us a little card. They were really sweet! We go every year and it’s always the best!

We had a fantastic dinner at Abe & Louie’s! We arrived early and were seated at the table of our choice. We had reserved a table outside but changed our minds and sat at a great table near the open window. We split all of our dishes which included a clams casino appetizer, a salad, a baked potato, and a New York sirloin. The waitstaff very willingly split the food for us without our asking. The waiter was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The dining experience couldn’t have been better.

The food was excellent once again although the service was a little slow this time. It's been a year since my last visit and it seems like the prices went up especially on the house wine; $19.00 and $24.00 per glass. I will be back; this is still one of the best restaurants in Boston.
