    The sriracha wings were PHENOMENAL and so were the drinks. My girlfriend and I enjoyed them, and we picked them solely off of their names. Like, mom jeans, I thought that was highkey funny. The brie was also good, def needed more toast than was provided for it. It was really dead in there though, it was a Monday night so it's understandable.

    The apps and drinks were great. The service was fantastic and more than accommodating. But the entrees were a little disappointing. I’ll definitely be back for the roasted Brie and tartare.

    The food was exceptional, well prepared and delivered piping hot! We both had the Fillet Tips and they were on point. I had the Tuna Tartare for an appetizer and found it to be a bit unique with the addition of the grilled jalapeno and very tasty. My only concern was the service was a little slow. As with most restaurants during this pandemic, they appeared to be under staffed. That being said, the effort of the wait staff was significant, they were doing the best they could under the circumstance. We'll definitely be back on our next trip to Boston!

    Fantastic venue with solid food options and an exciting drink menu. Service was on point, we had a reservation and were quickly seated. Never had to wait on drinks. Steak tips were melt in your mouth and our server was knowledgeable and helpful with gluten free options.

    We were there on Saturday the 19th. We asked the server what was the sweetest drink on the menu and she recommended one but was not sweet at all. We asked for an appetizer and waited almost 20 minutes then she came back to ask again what was the appetizer that we wanted. We asked for 2 burgers but when we got them they were cold. We left really disappointed.

    My colleague and I really enjoyed our visit to Abby Lane. This was our first visit since the re-open. We were impressed with the safe set up. The food was great as always, been here many times. Excellent service our waiter and bartender Ran was pleasant and didn’t miss a beat. There is something for everyone and we were really happy to see the menu hasn’t been limited as in other restaurants. The QR code app was quick and accurate on the first try. Thanks for a great experience.

    The first restaurant we have eaten at since the shutdown so it was a very enjoyable experience. The restaurant opens up to the outside and there are a number of tables outside so we felt very comfortable. The menu is diverse and the food was good. Great drink selection as well. Highly recommended!

    Pre-theater dinner experience was fantastic. The timing of the service was excellent. We never had to wait for anything and were never rushed. With easy parking nearby and a quick walk to everywhere in the Theater District, we will dine here again and recommend Abby Lane to friends heading into Boston to see a show.

    The quality of food has gone way down. The food is very bland, even the fries were not good. Raised to our server who apologized and brought it to the manager, which we witnessed. He did not care....had the server to run the card and went back to his phone. Explains a lot... There are much better restaurants in the area, will not return.

    This was a disappointing visit - the service was pleasant albeit pretty absent - the food wasn’t hot and two of us ordered that same thing and the portions were vastly different. We’ll try it again someday, but not in the near future, so that we have enough time to forget this night.
