    We made reservations at Al Biernat's for our 44th wedding anniversary brunch. The lady at the reception desk noted our anniversary, which was very nice and unexpected. We arrived 25 minutes early but were seated practically immediately. We made our selections from the Restaurant Week menus. Several times during our meal our server stopped to ask if everything was Ok and commented on our anniversary. The food was superb. The service was exceptional. The restaurant is, however, noisy and not conducive to quiet conversation. We had a booth by the kitchen which mitigated the sound. So if you need a quieter setting, ask for one of those booths. Adding to our wonderful experience, we were given an anniversary dessert, which was wonderful!

    We had an outstanding Restaurant Week dinner. The food was excellent and the wait staff was very good. The only complaint we had was the noise level. We were only able to hear the people on either side of us when eight of us were seated at a round table. The room was packed and the tables were very close together.

    Food was excellent! For a party of 6 we had a nice table location as we had a couple of elderly ladies in our group it was important to have a table with all chairs. Service was exceptional, friendly and most helpful. The only thing we did not like is the noise level, it was difficult to carry on a conversation. We will go back in the future. Thank you for making our evening very enjoyable

    I didn't expect to go to an exclusive restaurant such as Al Biernats and.....feel out of place. But I did. From the host & hostess team to our server I was never made to feel warm comfortable. The bus staff was cordial but they also also possessed the we work for al biernats' air. Food was nice. Wait time was very nice...Not long wait to be seated or food served.

    Al Biernats is one of my favourite places for dinner and/or lunch. The Sea Bass is the best in town and actually I rate any other Sea Bass against this one. The crab corn chowder is to die for but be aware, it is extremely filling. Portions are very generous. The only thing I would recommend is to not sit in the middle if you have a romantic date. Your neighbours are close and you can hear each others conversation.

    My husband and I love Al Biernats, so it was an obvious choice for his birthday celebration. What we did not count on however, was that we would be visiting during Restaurant Week and every other person in Dallas had the same idea. I chose to eat off of the restaurant week menu and my husband ate off of the regular dinner menu - both meals were fabulous! Service was amazing, as always. My only complaint would be the amount of people/noise level during restaurant week; We frequent this restaurant and the typical ambience is quiet and romantic. All in all, I would say it is worth every penny (as long as you avoid Restaurant Week)!

    It was our first time here, but our family is frequent customers. Food was amazing, but the whole experience could of been better given how much we spent. Reservation was at 8, but ended up getting seated at 8:30. Our table was in the very back corner, looked like they added the table in at the last minute because I could hear the guy at the next table chewing his food. We were so close to the tables around us and it was uncomfortable at times. I would go back for sure though because the filet oscar was outstanding! Maybe I will go on a weekday night...

    I made a short notice dinner reservation and was pleased to get a time that worked for our schedule. Arrival found the table as requested and the entire staff from top to bottom was very helpful and courteous. Our waitress was especially attentive without being in the way of the conversations or the dinner. Great dinner.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    In my opinion, Dallas is the best city in the world for steak and Al Biernat's is one of the top places for a perfect steak in Dallas. The service is professional and not rushed, allowing time for a leisurely cocktail before ordering. We had filets that were perfectly cooked, along with mushroom risotto. I had the chopped salad and my husband had Al's salad. The risotto was excellent, with a slight nuttiness cooked to just the right doneness, and both salads were delicious. Highly recommend.

    A friend and I came here for restaurant week, but I have been several times before. I was actually a little disappointed on some aspects, but others were great. The RW menu at Al's is always great, they are good about giving you a ton of choices. My friend and I both started with the Ahi Tuna Poke, which was amazing. Then I had the beef tenderloin for the entrée, and I was rather disappointed. There was very little meat vs the plethora of potatoes and green beans. The tenderloin had good flavor, but it was over cooked and dry. I asked for medium rare, and it was definitely closer to well done. On the other side, my friend got the sliced Waygu beef medium rare and it was absolutely delicious. The desserts were great, as was the wine.

    My wife & I have enjoyed Al Biernat's for well over 10 years - and we do not get as often now - but the food, the service, and the fast paced high energy seems to still stay at the top of fine dining places. The drinks, appetizers, steaks (one was Bison), and deserts were just as we imagined they would be - and our server was a great addition - we look forward to celebrating at Al's again!!

    The restaurant was very crowded. Of course, it was Restaurant Week. The food was very good and prepared very nice. However, the noise level was really bad. If you are going out with friends and want to talk, this is not the place for you. They really need to work on trying to tone down the noise level.

    Three of us get together every year for Restaurant Week and this year we picked Al B's. On Oak Lawn with only valet parking. We were taken to a table that was in the back where it was so quiet. Very nice table. I ordered the Crab & Corn Chowder (Outstanding), the Sliced Wagyu Sirloin, Kale Salad with Beets, Parsnips, Grilled Asparagus, Artichoke, and Habanero Lime Vinaigrette and the famous Coconut Pie. The whole thing was steller and the service was most excellent. My friends got the Tenderloin and chocolate cake, which they said was also excellent. Being my first time, I will definitely go again with the husband.

    From beginning to end, this was a great dining experience. We went for Restaurant Week, so glad they chose to be a part, and it did not disappoint. First of all, many restaurants offer you two to three choices on their Restaurant Week Menu. But here? It was amazing, there were so many wonderful choices. Of note - appetizer Beef Wellington Bites were a great find; main course - the Snapper was the best I've had in a while (and I live on the coast). The Tenderloin was so tender and full of amazing tastes, the Wagyu also tender and succulent. And dessert choices? So hard to choose but we went with the Key Lime Pie (perfect taste of tart and sweet with the raspberry accompaniment), and the Ice Cream Sandwich was genius. Great service!!
