If I'm looking to spend a couple hundered bucks on a good meal (especially steak), good service and a great all-around experience I usually go to either Mistral or Davio's. Both never disappoint. But tonight I went to Abe + Louie's which I rarely ever go to and never will again. I sat at the bar with a friend and it I couldn't wait to leave. The place is filled with loud-mouth knuckleheads. The bartenders are yelling at the customers, the customers are screaming at each other like their 80 years old and hard of hearing while others are fighting with the bartenders over who's going to get the next open seat while launching more f-bombs than you'll ever hear at a Sox-Yankees game. Really. I couldn't believe it. I spent $150 and while the food was OK, it was hardly worth the pain of sitting in this hell-hole of a restaurant. Honestly, from the staff to clientel this is one of the lowest class places in town. If I expletive-filled bar room I'll go to Southie or Somerville, not a high-priced steakhouse in the Back Bay. Yes, I know it rakes in tons of dough but so does McDonanlds. So if you're coming in from out of town my recommendation is to check-out Mistral, Davios, or a host of other restuarants where you will thoroughly enjoy the food AND a fun night on the town. But Abe + Louie's? Fuhgeddaboutit!
So, with this title, this is probably a little bit promotional. A&Lis better for cougar hunting than it is for steaks and good service. This may appear to be a classy steak house. But, in reality, it’s a cougar house. There are better places to bring the family. The steaks were fair at best and not worth what we paid. Thumbs down for me. You should hire smarter people. The service was awful while, as I said before, the steaks were just fair. Not a fan.
