    They Overcooked the $80 bone-in ribeye. Limited knowledge of the wines on the menu by myself and the waiter resulted in a $100 bottle of wine that I “lived with”.

    We have enjoyed Abe’s many times. Last night was not great. Loud. Way too busy food was decent. Service was average. Usually its 10 stars last night 2 stars. Table we had was wedged in. Not a great. Night.

    We were a party of 3 celebrating a friend's birthday. We made a reservation and we made a note stating that it is for a birthday. Abe & Louie's gave us a surprise birthday slice of their chocolate cake plus a candle. The waiter even sang happy birthday and we sang along too. It wasn't too loud so it wasn't embarrassing for our birthday friend. We were treated like VIPs throughout our entire meal. Service was great as was the food and the ambience. Highly recommend especially for special occasions. Love love love the staff at this restaurant. They are the best.

    I visited Abe & Louie’s twice in one trip for the Boston Marathon in 2024. I truly appreciate the level of service and quality at this wonderful steakhouse. My server’s name was Jored (pronounced your-red). Be sure to ask for him. He’s one of the best — very attentive and personable.

    The dining room was covered in dark wood and leather and art tastefully placed. The wait staff looked prepared and ready to serve, kind, friendly and attentive. The food was GREAT! The Abe's Seafood Tower was stuffed with seafood well worth it! the Thick-Cut Nueske's Bacon was off the CHAIN! delicious! OMG! my Pear & Goat Cheese Salad was a delightful sweet & salty combination and so fresh. My Atlantic Swordfish, Provençale style was really good, meaty and succulent. Now the Lobster Macaroni & Cheese really met my expectations. I didn’t need to search for the lobster in fact it was very noticeable and abundant. The Mascarpone Cheesecake berry compote was so rich, I, (the lover of sweets) couldn’t even finish it. We were so engaged in conversation and the food that I failed to get any pics. I know, shame on me! But the ones here are from Opentable, except for the cheesecake pics. 😊 Click the link below for the full review! https://youtu.be/UeRF_014Aas

    I gave service 2 stars instead of 1 because our server seemed to be very friendly and attentive to other tables, but was essentially absentee for our table. This was to the extent that we didn’t bother telling the server of issues because we didn’t want to wait even longer for more mediocre service, especially considering the price point of this restaurant. The food had great flavors, but none of the steaks were cooked to the specified temperatures. We normally would send back incorrectly prepared meals, but as said we didn’t want to wait even longer. Overall, we found Abe & Louie’s to be overrated and overpriced for what we got.

    Food and location was great. I was disappointed that we specified birthday... when we walked in, the hostess asked - whose birthday. The server mentioned nothing and did nothing for the birthday. Server was a bit abrupt and dismissive at times so i didn't even feel comfortable asking.

    The place was great. Really old school, all male servers, dark paneling. The service was fabulous, servers were always available and attentive. I was however, very disappointed with my ribeye steak. It was very thin, about an inch maybe, and there was NO sear on it. I have never had a good quality steak that did not have a crusty sear on it. Also, for a ribeye it may have been marbled but it had lot of big globs of fat that were not trimmed off. It was very dark and hard to see the meat without a flashlight, which I did not do. I probably should have sent it back but I did not want to embarrass my daughter. The broccoli was REALLY al dente, which was fine but the garlic was raw which I find distasteful. For a steak restaurant I would not rate this $$$$.
