The Caesar salad, fillet mignon, and au gratin potatoes were delicious while the waiter was terrific. I specially appreciated the waiter suggesting we order 1/2 Caesar salads, as the serving was very large. The steaks were cooked perfectly, and a cookie skillet desert was the perfect way to end a most enjoyable meal. Prices are very high, as would be expected at a Boston steakhouse. I'd definitely return, even though the restaurant no longer serves the delicious bread it did last summer. Instead a basket of ordinary bread offerings is served.

Waiter rushed us right from start. Lobster casserole was deplorable - Abe and Louie’s really?! Lobster was all chopped like dime size and dried up broiled breadcrumbs then fresh on top which was gross and then it was over broiled. I asked for an I getting butter in the side. My husband and son’s filets were fine. Lobster Mac and cheese made poorly with shreds of lobster and a half of claw on top. Cheese had no taste. Garlic mashed were whipped like someone who does not cook would serve. We had sautés mushrooms which were fine. We thought they would be olive oil and garlic and they came out in brown gravy? Also my son would have liked a sofa and the waiter never came back to check on our meals or whether we needed or wanted anything. We can be reached at 781-706-0989 for further comment. We all will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone. We have been there several times. I work at the local law office across the street. A shame. I feel badly that our 25 year old son paid $275 I think for a meal that was disgraceful.

We love Coach Grill, but Abe and Louie's is another story. Service was really slow. Took forever to get our check. The food was only so-so, expensive and luke-warm at best. No one wants cold eggs for brunch and for what you pay, you could have given us a little more steak on the filet mignon eggs benedict. We love Atlantic Fish Co. Love Coach Grill. See what you can do about raising the quality of food and service at A & L's. Can't rest on your laurels anymore. We crossed this once time favorite off the list. Don't think we'll be coming back for more luke-warm food, poor service, and over-pricing. The only good thing was the hand cut fries...I guess you can never go back.

Because it was Father's Day, they weren't serving their regular brunch menu.
Very disappointed! I love the ahi tuna burger and because they didn't have it, I ordered a tuna appetizer.
It was a very small portion and the taste was off- the tuna tasted - very chemical tasting and not fresh. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to spoil Father's Day.

Great food and staff! Decor is a bit outdated and a remodel would help this great restaurant. The one major issue I have is the size of the beverages. For one cocktail $14 the glass is extremely small. There is no perceived value. I know it’s Boston but, cmon guys bigger glasses! Once again food was a 10 out of 10! Cocktails were tasty. My server Yousef was extremely prompt and friendly.

The Steak was VERY good, but the sides were pretty bad. Our asparagus was pretty burnt. It was edible, but when you pay $12 for a side, you expect it to be prepared correctly. We had to ask for our wine to be poured 2-3 times. They never removed our empty cocktail glasses.

A&L is always our go to special occasion place. The steaks, salads and sides were great, as always. As was our waiter, however he was not very attentive as he was clearly busy taking care of A LOT of other tables. My drink (strawberry mojito) was the worst I have ever had and we were really sad that the delicious homemade rolls have been replaced by a run of the mill bread basket.

Not at this time. Food was unevenly cooked. Pork chop was way rare. One side forgotten, another au gratin potatoes, bland.
Got the drink wrong the first time
And my ever favorite brought lemons when lime was requested.
This was a bad night for us there. They comped us $50. I’ll try them once more to see.

We had to ask for menus, then had to ask for waters. Table behind us was vaping an electronic cigarette. My friend has a gluten allergy and asked if she could have a side salad instead of an English muffin, a very simple request, server hesitated and said he would see what he could do. I will say all bussers/food runners were kind, attentive and professional. Hostesses were also very helpful assisting us with our stroller and getting us a high chair. The food was ok but overall was definitely not the experience you’d expect.

Everything was great for we had an outdoor table for four on one of the best nights
of the year thus far. We had a minor gift card issue that was resolved by the manager
and did not take away from the great atmosphere, food and company that we had. We Highly
recommend Abe and Louie's for this place is the Best. Thanks again to all the staff they were

I have been to Abe he was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We started with onion soup and the A pretty much as good as these items get. I had the ribeye, my wife had the lobster casserole. It's hard to go wrong with ribeye no matter where you order it, but this was one of the best steaks I've had in years. Very tasty and perfectly cooked. The lobster casserole is mis-named. It's not lobster floating in a creamy sauce; it's chunks of lobster with a little breads crumbs and seasoning. Fantastic. We had the cauliflower steak and sautéed spinach sides. Both outstanding.

I knew we would have a very good dinner, but it turned out to be one of the best dinners we've had in months if not years. An all-around great experience.

We went for a birthday celebration and it was amazing as always! The french onion soup is a must try; the steaks melt in your mouth and you have to try the "hash brown potato". Great service and great food! Only recommendation would be to have a drink menu available
