The best. Had shrimp cocktail which was delicious nNY strip that was succulent and cooked perfectly hash browns were spectacular. And the cocktails I had Johnnie Walker on rocks and was given a very generous pour. So how would I rate this restaurant two thumbs up. We are from NYC and travel to Boston every December for a few days and always book Abe & Louies. Wish they were in N Y

The service was outstanding but the food was meh! I had the Eggs Benedict Trio. Unfortunately, the lobster was shredded and tasteless and the filet mignon was dry and overcooked. I thought the lobster Bennie would be just as good as the one Atlantic Fish (which was absolutely amazing and included tail meat) but it was a huge disappointment. The Bloody Mary was delish! All in all, I would come back to Abe & Louie's for a good steak and will visit Atlantic Fish if I ever have a taste for a Lobster Bennie.

Had lunch there prior to Christmas pops - our server was outstanding. The food was served timely but not rushed and was delicious. They had a small "jazz band" there as well - it really added to the atmoshpere.
Definitely part of our Christmas/Holiday traditions.

The upstairs room was very cold, probably intentionally so to make sure the huge party next to us would drink themselves into a stupor, which they did. They turned up the heat after they left. Too noisy, and the service, though nice, is not what you would expect from a top-rated restaurant. The food was OK, nothing spectacular. The wine list also not as extensive as a top-rated restaurant, like other steakhouses in the area. I find it hard to recommend this place.

We went to Boston for a weekend, and since there aren't many good Streak houses on Cape Cod, we were looking forward to our dinners. Our waitress was wonderful, her recommendations of wine and side dishes were perfect. My husband didn't like his Rib Eye steak, it was gristly, fatty and tough. My filet was delicious, but a little cold. We had lovely seats upstairs at the windows. When we were seated there was a serving tray on my chair, which was uncomfortable. The seating was freezing! The people at the table next to us had on their winter coats, and I would have as well if I hadn't checked my coat. Thankfully I kept my scarf and was able to wrap that around me. The wine recommendation was a lifesaver!

This is my favorite restaurant in Boston. My husband and I last ate here in May. I was disappointed last night that my favorite, the prime rib, was taken off the menu. Last night we both had Delmonico steaks and potatoes au gratin - they were wonderful. I also missed the pretzel bread, that is also gone. The bread basket was very good last night, but did miss the pretzel bread. Also used to serve martinis with big "test tubes" of extra drink - those are also gone. All-in-all, still a fabulous dining experience with delicious food!

Picked this restaurant because it had good ratings on TripAdvisor. We probably would have a better review if we had been seated in lower dining area. It was my husband’s birthday dinner and we were in town for the weekend. Waitstaff was excellent- my fillet wasn’t the greatest, it was really loud and we didn’t enjoy it. We didn’t realize there was another seating area. When I booked with Open Table I did type in that it was for a birthday- overall not impressed with this restaurant.

Abe & Louie’s is our go-to restaurant if we know we want exceptional service, food, and ambiance. The bay scallop appetizer was outrageously good and both our meals were cooked to perfection. Our server, Anthony, was a seasoned professional who gave us five star service. I am not someone who likes steak, but I’m always impressed by their non-steak options (swordfish if my personal favorite). Every time we leave Abe & Louie’s we reaffirm that there is no better restaurant in Boston.

Always enjoy the Abe and Louis experience but were disappointed that the legendary bread was no longer served. Really hope they bring it back as it is part of this institution and honestly is one of the reasons we choose it over other steakhouses. Would be willing to pay if they put it back on the menu as an option.
