    Great oysters, the steak was amazing. You’ll pay a hefty price tag for your steak but the portion is generous and my daughter and I split one (NY strip) and it was plenty. Nice ambiance. Staff was excellent.

    They have reduced their menu significantly and removed some of our favorites, specifically the lobster casserole and the hash browns. The replacement for the hash browns , the crispy potatoes Rosti did not compare. Very disappointed.

    Always a solid steak. Sides have shrunk and the hash browns are no longer the same. Tomato and onion salad was uninspiring with chopped onions. Service was very good but enough with the steakhouse sales job. Been here dozens of times. We know the menu and don’t need to be sold on extra sauces or cuts.

    The waiter was fantastic but the medium well steak that arrived even though I ordered medium rare came served with a side of attitude from the manager who brought back the new steak and decided to dress me down. Actually stood there arguing telling me that temperature and color are subjective. He was a massive jerk. The waiter was kind and apologetic for the managers behavior. He should be running the restaurant! Gratin was very tasty, the very expensive steak $61 or a 10oz filet was just ok….

    All employees were friendly and all about service. It was my daughter's birthday and everyone made a point to say happy birthday. The service was excellent. The appetizers were really good, but the main courses and sides were too salty. When my wife says its too salty that is saying something.

    It was extremely loud, couldn’t even hear my partner. I didn’t expect for there to be a bar at a nice restaurant like this. Our waiter was in a rush. She didn’t know how to pour a glass of wine. She spilled it all over my purse & the table. It was a mess. She didn’t even apologize. We ordered our steak medium & it came well done. It was extremely tough to eat. We order the Tomahawk for two & it wasn’t even a full tomahawk. They should atleast give us a full tomahawk, especially if it’s $150. It’s not cheap so we were extremely disappointed because of that. It was supposed to be a nice dinner for my boyfriends birthday & I’m so mad we spent it there. Horrible experience, would never go there again. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone either.

    We have been dinning at Abe & Louie’s for many years. In the past we always felt that it was a top notch restaurant with great food and service. Just not the same. Food was barely warm. Nothing special for the increased price. I had two bottles of San Pelegríno that were both flat (no bubbles).

    As a self proclaimed foodie, I cannot stop praising Abe & Louie's for providing spectacular service. I am new to the Boston area and take myself on solo dates as I explore the city. My server, Victoria, provided excellent service and made me feel right at home. The food nearly melted in my mouth, it was soooo good. The atomsphere is one that is fit for a Queen. I highly recommend Abe & Louie's.

    Top notch restaurant and amazing food. Would definitely go back for the prime filet again! All our steaks were ordered at different temps and they came out perfectly! Our waiter Michael was very accommodating and let us sample a few wines and drafts before purchasing. His presentation skills were so enticing we even ordered desserts although we rarely do. Delicious!!

    We are returning customers. Not every experience has been the best for different reasons but the food/steak, and atmosphere keep us coming back. We love it there. This time service was not the best. Had to ask more than twice for butter, lots of stuff left on table after eating that was not the norm, service was not an A+ this visit. But, we love it there and will be back.

    The food and the service were amazing. Matthew our server and the bussers were attentive, friendly, and Had good recommendations on the food choices. I gave the ambiance a 4-star because it was a little loud considering it was upscale steakhouse, it was difficult to have a conversation cause it was loud in the downstairs dining area. Try the Wagyu Filet and New York steak they both were very delicious, along with the asparagus and whipped potatoes. Don’t forget their chocolate cake with Icecream on the side it was to die for, coming from someone who prefers vanilla cake. This was a great place for steak, highly recommend it.

Called ahead for a special table for a birthday, and they brought out a piece of cake and a candle. Perfect for any occasion or any day Victor is the best waiter.
