Food was great but disappointed in the bread basket. They no longer serve the delicious rolls. Also no onion strings, something I would always order. Bring them back!!!

Best steakhouse in Boston. Perfect for a birthday. A few too many Chads but that's unavoidable in New England.

We had a fun time celebrating my son's birthday at Abe and Louie's. Having valet parking is awesome - makes it so much easier. Food and service was great - we had Bobby D. as a waiter and he was wonderful!
It is really noisy in the restaurant but very festive too so it didn't bother me as much as it usually would.

I was disappointed with the service, ambience and food. The food was "ok" high-end steak house fare, but not up to the standards of other high-end steak houses, and not nearly as good as my first visit to the restaurant 15 months ago. The restaurant was also overcrowded and very noisy - surprisingly so given our relatively early (6:30) reservation. And to make matters worse, we were seated next to a table of three very loud men, one of whom was dropping f-bombs every other word, it seems. I would not go back and instead would choose of their competitors - Capital Grille, Grill 23 or Ruth's Chris - if I wanted a better steak house experience.

Abe and Louie’s is an absolute favorite. Expensive, yes, but so worth it. Service is always great, and starting our dinner at the bar was great fun. Drinks and a couple of appetizers were excellent. Andrew made it fun too.
Love that we were treated to the best chocolate cake ever!

While the brunch food at Abe & Louie's remains strong, it is a MAJOR shame they have gotten rid of the baked buns with cinnamon & brown sugar. What they've replaced it with is so ho-hum and boring. If you're not interested in having beef, I'd say to somewhere else for brunch!

This was our second visit to Abe & Louie’s. Food was outstanding from appetizer (bacon), salad (Caesar) to dessert the food was excellent! We were seated upstairs which was good (quieter). Our server seemed overworked but overall we had a great meal and a great time.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner here. The wait staff was very accommodating in helping us to get just the right cocktail. The filet mignon and delmomico were delicious. The pork chop had a good flavor but was a bit dry. The best part of the meal, besides the attentive and responsive service was the caramel bread pudding. We had to get an order of it to go! We’ll be back again and again.

Little disappointed in some changes....Caesar salad didn’t need to change to huge stalks of romaine that need to be cut up. Kids were disappointed that the bread had changed, it was such a wonderful tradition, the fresh baked. Swordfish portion was too small for the price. Steaks were great as always

It's a great place. The steaks are fantastic. The service is very good. Unfortunately, the noisy restaurant trend seems to be working its way up to the higher priced restaurants too. I wish it were more quiet and people enjoyed participating in a more refined dining atmosphere.

I am a tough scorer; this review probably should be a solid five stars but I think that is perfection. Our visit exceeded expectations from start to finish from our greeting by the host to the door being held by the parking valet when we departed. Anthony, our server, was extremely attentive but not overbearing or pesky; just right and we wanted for nothing. My bone in rib eye was grilled to perfection as was my wife's salmon. Busy steakhouse with busy after work corporate crowd of diners. Busy but not chaotic. Loud but not noisy. This was out second visit and we will likely return whenever we visit Boston.
