I spent a couple weeks in February and a couple weeks in June and had the good fortune of partaking of this restaurant's dedication to the art of the perfect steak. I was there for lunch and dinner about 6 times overall and each time the experience was superb. The location is fantastic, and we sat outside in the afternoon... More

Abe and Louie's is a steak house with dark woods as a back drop. I love the service at this restaurant! Attentive but unobtrusive....the steaks are really good , but they have good seafood options for the "non steak house" crowd. The desserts are big enough to share and the wine list is good. The bar was lively with the... More

We heard so much about this place that we decided to try it out. We sat outside (yes in October) the service was great, the sides were to die for but the main dish of lobster was mediocre. The steak was good, but not worth the price!

There are two floors and we were seated on the top floor with a view of boylston. Service was attentive without being overwhelming. Good place for large groups of people. I had a ribeye which was very tasty. Fish is available too. Wine list is good with lots of choice. A little on the expensive side though at $90 a... More

We enjoyed our food at Abe & Louie's, especially the New England Clamp Chowder, but I found it too expensive. I guess things are expensive in Boston, but not sure if it was worth the money.

Steaks here were fantastic. Would recommend booking a table as very busy. Not cheap but definitely worth it as neither service or food could be faulted. Would definitely come again if in Boston

I had not been to Abe and Louie's for about 6 months but had the pleasure of going there yesterday with my wife. Oh my God, it was superb. I had forgotten just how great it was. The atmosphere is always good. The drinks are great and the food is the best. I continue to believe that this is the... More

The perfect lunching place for that all-important lunch off-campus. Excellent steak, sides and dessert for the boy who needs a break from the food court; a full brunch menu for the diet-conscious adult. Helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere.

A recent team meal at Abe and Louie's confirmed it's place as my go-to spot for a Steak in Boston. The lively atmosphere makes it hard to do serious business, but not many places get the the service of steak so right.
