    We dined last night for my husbands 50th birthday. The place was bustling! I made a reservation long in advance since it was for an important event. When they seated us at an end table in the noisy bar with music over head, my heart sunk. Not where I wanted to have his special birthday with our family. I asked if they had another table never expecting it could be accommodated being as busy as they were, but they did it - I was so happy. The food and service was amazing and they accommodated everything we needed. Made my husband's special birthday one to remember.

    Date night while visiting Boston. Classic steakhouse. Initially we were disappointed at being seated at tiny booth in bar area. (I did request booth but did not want to be in bar). Asked for restaurant seating, put us at small table which was fine. Aside from that everything was great. Our server Adam made great recommendations. Cup of clam chowder, lobster dumplings, whipped potatoes, asparagus, roasted mushrooms and bone in filet. Shared all. Ended with cookie and ice cream dessert which will no longer be on menu after today. Nice cab with dinner as well. Only really needed 1 or 2 sides but wanted to taste all. Everything was delicious! One of the best steaks ever (maybe the best?).

    Very nice but one side of the booth was so small and crowded because the booth next to it had moved in. So very uncomfortable to eat. The server said there was nothing to do. The seats move. Ugh !

    You will not be surprised to learn that we had another great night at A&L’s. Great atmosphere, engaging staff and great food and wine promptly served. Seated close to the bar, I find it a bit noisier than I might like, against that, further away would miss the buzz of the Bruins game behind the bar staff. I’ll be back!

    Great service. The servers are always very helpful here in choosing steak cuts. The food was also great. It can be a little noisy when crowded, but otherwise a nice ambiance. Be careful of the sizes of the side dishes as they can be a little generous for a single person. Be ready to spend, but I feel that it is worth it.

    Ordered filet, asked if medium meant pink, answer was yes, cut just the end when it came out, not the middle, and it was red/rare...no biggie but had to wait a long time for it to be taken back, then they put it in the nuclear oven because it came back charcoal outside, well done inside, by then the sides were cold and my guest's dinner was almost finished. For the money, a place with this level of experience has to get it right everytime. Yes, they took it off the bill but bottom line, the experience was just mid and with so many options out there, it will probably be a while before we return.

    We go every year for my husbands Birthday he gets the stuffed lobster. It’s no longer on the menu. My son got the $85 Bone-In Rib-Eye. Was horrible. They brought another out and it had no flavor and was chewy. Very disappointed but waiter was very good.

    Our waiter was not as friendly as we would have liked. Four of us dined and I know that the food came cold/not hot for two of us - likely all four, but we were too embarrased to ask our guests or send it back. We usually have found this to be a premium brunch experience, but this time the only thing premium was the bill. Lackluster food and service.

    Salad, scallops and apple tart all excellent. Two drinks arrived fast, one was forgotten and then proved not to be available. Replacement arrived quickly, but both were on the bill, though removed without trouble. As a Thanksgiving meal, price was understandably high. Would go back next year.

    It was a last minute date for a great early 5pm dinner before a 7pm Van Morrison concert at the Schubert Theatre. The host, waiter, sommelier, and manager were friendly and provided fantastic service. We were seated at a two person table by the fireplace so great ambience. The appetizers, salad, steak and sides were delicious. It was a great start to a wonderful night.
