A real class act from the service to the food you won't be disappointed if you pay a visit to this restaurant on Boyslton Street in Boston's Back Bay area as we did to celebrate an anniversary. On a bitterly cold November evening we were greeted warmly and shown to a great table overlooking the busy street. We were served... More

Abe & Louie's is big-time expensive, but the steaks and seafood are first tier, and the lively bar was a hoot! I was in Boston for a work trip on a weeknight, and sat at the bar. Michelle, the bartender, was friendly and efficient. I had the 'small' filet mignon (8 oz -- the smallest beef dish on the menu),... More

Breakfast, Salad, Burgers, or fine Steaks - their brunch menu covers whatever you're in the mood for. Superior quality, fresh food that you can taste in every bite. Impeccable service. No valet on the weekends and parking is a challenge, but worth it.

My girlfriend and I came here for our 2 year anniversary and enjoyed ourselves. Our server was extremely professional, knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. I ordered the cup of clam chowder, which was good, but I felt it was a bit watery. The rolls however, are amazing! I think we went through 3 baskets of... More

Sam, our server, was excellent. He was extremely attentive to our 2 year old daughter. His proactive approach to what she needed helped my wife and I enjoy our dinner. The porterhouse and asparagus were cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back. Thanks again, Sam!

Was really looking forward to A&L, but came away disappointed.seating was on the main floor, crowded and noisey. Bar crowd standing nearby, and patron and staff's passage kept bumping my chair. Steak was average, but NE clam chowder was excellent.

Abe & Louie's has a retro steak house atmosphere with dark wood; big furniture; bigger drinks and knowledgeable waitstaff. The oysters are great. The rib eye was so flavorful...but I could barely eat half! The halibut was perfectly cooked - not dry at all. The wine list is varied and our server recommended a white and a red that complemented... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
