    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

    Tim was a fantastic server! With humor and best intentions he suggested dishes and serving sizes for our family. I have specifically asked for him the next time we eat there. 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.

    Service was poor. Other tables seemed more important. Requested a drink that we ordered there in the past. Per our waiter they couldn’t make . I even tried to explain what was in tge drink which are bassic liquera . He couldn’t even listen was not interested. Poor service. Have extensive experience in hospitality service and this was one of the worst.

    Abe & Louie’s As high-end steakhouses go, it’s OK, the overall experience wasn’t all that impressive. The steak was good and prepared perfectly. But everything else was lacking. I would explain but OpenTable only allows 2000 characters and an explanation would take much more than that.

    Overall, the meal was fine, it just didn’t live up to my expectations of past meals. The clam chowder, filet mignon and bearnaise were the best part of the meal. The sides though were disappointing (Brussels sprouts were undercooked and the lobster macaroni and cheese had a weird smoked, almost burnt, taste).
