    Every time I come to Boston from out of town, I dine at Abe and Louise’s. It is a favorite! The feeling of being in an old time style steakhouse brings back great childhood memories. New York strip, garlic mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts, tuna steak, and French onion soup all scrumptiously perfect! We ditched the kids and had a great night!!!

    As always Abe & Louis has the best steaks in Boston. We had a piece of filet mignon that we could cut with a fork. So delicious! Great service and great atmosphere! I don’t go anywhere else for steaks. Plus it’s not it chain like every other steakhouse in town.

    The service and food was great. Although they didn’t bring out 2 salads we ordered they offered to buy our deserts which was a very nice gesture. We were eating outside so the communication may have been off. The food was spectacular and our waiter and other staff was amazing. Would definitely recommend treating yourself to a wonderful dining experience.

    The fish (sea bass) was terrible and the tuna appetizer was worse -- tasteless, too crunchy, and low-quality tuna.

    So wonderful to celebrate my birthday and this great restaurant. From the beautiful ambiance once you enter, to the attentive yet respectful service, it was an experience I will not forget. I haven’t even mentioned the food yet. I am a steak person and every bite of my 10oz filet was perfection. My friend raced about the swordfish risotto . Drinks were exceptional. Lastly, the seven layer chocolate cake was Devine. So happy with this visit. Thank-you Abe and Louie’s!

    I was warmly greeted by Marian who was a most personable and professional bartender and server. My colleague and I shared the rib steak, lobster casserole, mashed potato, green beans, and key lime pie. The steak was tender, perfectly seasoned and cooked exactly to temperature. The shelled lobster was delicious and included just the right amount of butter and cracker crumbs. Side dishes were generous and delicious as well. The pie as packed to go as we were absolutely stuffed! This was an amazing experience and as a steakhouse lover and regular visitor to Boston…Abe and Louie’s is not to be missed!!!!

    I loved Abe and Louis last night it was horrible from server to the food . Two of us spent $350 and both said we’re in no hurry to go back. It use to be my favorite before last night . Good dry cold and no taste lobster casserole was awful. Bass was dry and no taste . Sorry I don’t complain but I was very dissatisfied

We also met the new Manager, Pamela, from Chicago who was gracious to spend a small bit of time to see how we were enjoying our evening. Kudos to all!!

    Our tuna, pork chop and creamed spinach were quite tasty. The service left a bit to be desired. I did not receive a sharp knife for my pork chop and we had to wait a while to catch someone’s attention for salt and pepper. It finally arrived in diner like shakers. The table across from us had a salt mill - and no fresh pepper was offered.

    This was my favorite steakhouse in the U.S. Recent visit was disappointing. Steak for two was overcooked (rare came back medium/medium rare). They quickly replaced it, with one that was too rare. Not usually a problem, but steak was not up to it's normall quality - more fat than usual. Peter Luger's is now back to my favorite. Will give Abe & Louie's another chance next visit to Boston.
