My first impression of Abe & Louie's was poor, as the host couldn't seem to find the reservation I had called in two days earlier, and curtly told me to stand in the lobby and wait until the rest of my party arrived.
Dinner ran us about $92 each, including one drink, one steak, one side dish, and one dessert with coffee each, including tax and tip.
There has got to be better food in Boston for this price. My Caesar salad was dry and bland. The bread assortment was rather dry also, and included only dark breads. My $13 glass of wine was a rather frugal pour. The chocolate layer cake, advertised as being made with imported chocolate, was disapointing too. Plenty of cake, but nothing special about the chocolate -- and, you guessed it, pretty dry.
The steaks, mashed potatoes, and Abe & Louie's salad with apples and pistachios went over better. But not enough to get us to return.
Noise level was very high -- lots of heavy-drinking, loud-talking men at neighboring tables.
