Best Experience!Loved seeing Al at Mother's Day Brunch. What a special place to celebrate the day with my wonderful family!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExactly what we wantedA friend and I were visting dallas and I had done some research on steaks. I'd never heard of Al Biernats but between a good review and a great recommendation from a bartendar at our hotel, we ended up here. We both had their special ribeye whcih was locally grown, grass fed organic etc and it was hands down the best steak i've ever had. The seasoning they use is perfect as it enhances the flavor of the meat without covering it up. Also, our service was flawless and like everywhere else we went in Dallas, everyone was super friendly.
Don't pass up an opportunity to go hee.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHits all the buttonsMother's Day Sunday brunch we had 1:30 reservation, arrived at the restaurant a little early (1:10), parking lot abuzz, efficiently valeted, escorted inside, greeted warmly, got our table a little early(1:16), hostess very cordial, menus in hand, server with drink orders pronto, Al comes to the table for a greeting(attention to guests 5*). Today was Caesar salad (it's large, splitting one is good at lunch) and the absolutely luscious pot roast (favourite Sunday fare from when it was homemade), healthy succulent offering of an American staple. Service and food were at the usual high standard I've received every time I've been in. Al's is simply the best I've found in Dallas!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. WentWe had a great time. Went there for our anniversary. Food was great. Our wait staff was the best i've ever had.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time toThis was my first time to dine at Al Biernat's. We will be back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a special occassionSelected Al Biernats to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary and they definitely delivered:great vibe, outstanding service by our waiter, Forrest, and everyone's food was delicious. I had the 14oz filet cooked medium rare and it melted in my mouth. My father had the surf n turf, 3oz lobster tail with 8oz filet, and he loved it. I sampled the lobster tail with butter sauce and regreted not getting a tail myself. Our entire party of 7 had a very memorable time. All the staff made sure to congratulate my parents on their very special occasion. The night ended with us sharing the coconut cream pie. It lived up to the hype that a coworker of mine had given it. The service was top notch and definitely look forward to dining here again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a favoriteYou cannot go wrong with Al Biernats. I get something different every time and I am always incredibly pleased. Took my niece for the first time and she was astounded. We had steak, lobster, mac-n-cheese and a very well-priced bottle of wine. Fantastic!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Spot in DallasGreat management, great service, incredible food, great bar with some of the best bartenders in Dallas. Al is front and center making sure it remains that way.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable LunchWe had reservations for 5 & were promptly greeted, asked our seating preference (large booth or table). Our server Tito provided the perfect amount of attentiveness. All the entrees were amazing from the grilled salmon to the smoked sea bass and the pasta of the day.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAl's delivers as usual!I took my son and daughter ages 22 and 16 for the first time as a special treat. For my son's major accomplishment of graduating from Vanderbilt University on the dean's list all 4 years and for my daughter's fine job her sophomore year at Lakehill Prep of continuing to make straight A's and playing 3 sports too. We had a fabulous time and the food at Al's was amazing as it always is. Our collective favorite item from our dining experience was Al Biernats salad - delicious.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal! Noisy restaurant!The food and service were excellent. I suppose you could say we had privacy in that we could barely hear ourselves so no one else could, either. Al Biernat's is a very loud restaurant!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceMy wife and I visited on a Tuesday night to celebrate a special occasion and had a great time. The food was excellent and the service was attentive yet not overly intrusive. We have been to this restaurant twice and our only complaint had been the noise level. At times it can be difficult to carry on a conversation across the table. So if you're looking for a quiet, romantic date spot this probably isn't the place for you but if you want a great place to celebrate a special occasion give it a try.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to its reputation!Al Biernats is now one of my favorite steakhouses! We arrived about 5 minutes late for an 8:00 reservation and were seated immediately. Our server, Rock, certainly had a hand in turning a good experience into a great one. Though profressional, he was very friendly and full of suggestions. He even reccomended half-portions of certain items, which I appreciated. The bone-in, wagyu ribeye was amazing: so were the crm spinach and the mac-n-cheese.
The wine list was priced better than similar steakhouses. I liked that the sommelier himself came to tell us they were out of our first choice in wine. He suggested a wine that was priced 15% lower than the first bottle and it was fantastic!
I will definitely be back!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steaks in DallasThis restaurant may not have wine list like Pappa Bros, Three Forks and others but their Prime Steaks are supreme. You will not find any better in Dallas. I love the restaurant and service, very friendly and attentive staff. I gave 3 stars to service as our waitress this time could have been a little more attentive, we had to ask another Server and Server's Assistant for some items. The corn/crab chowder is amazing, best wedge salad I have ever had and the steaks melt in your mouth. Good here, I promise as a Foodie, you will not be disappointed. I have been going to this restaurant for 8 years and it is worth it.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went to Al'sMy husband and I went to Al's for Sunday Brunch and it was fantastic! The brunch menu can be pricey, but it is definately worth it! The brioche french toast was to die for and when we went they had Al's Special which was a salmon omelette, just wonderful~~ Hope to try Al's for dinner soon!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and Lobster some theSteak and Lobster some the best i ve had.

Truly a wonderful evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNormally we come on a dateNormally we come on a date here but since it was my oldest daughters 19th birthday we took the whole family which included a 13 yr old and 8 yr old. Although there is not a kid menu the waiter kindly said they could make spaghetti and chicken fingers which pleased the younger kids. They were not made to feel unwelcome and really enjoyed the evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome in every way....firstAwesome in every way....first visit there. Went for our anniversary and we were treated like family. Our server could not have been more helpful. Walked us through the menu and told us all the secrets. Food was amazing.

It was her first Al Biernats dining experience and it did not disappoint. From the valet, to hostess, to Lance (our FANTASTIC waiter), to the Manager coming to our table, it was 5 star service. Oh, did I mention the food was worth every penny spent? :-) My wife is already asking for a second trip...as Charlie Sheen says..."Winner".4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRobbie Clark, MckinneyIt was a great experience. I had Greek salad with two very large shrimp. The Greek was great and the shrimp cooked perfectly. A guest with us had Salmon with Spinich. It looked outstanding. I will try that the next time in. I live in Mckinney, but will definately bring my wife and friends back for an evening treat. This is a great venue for a business lunch.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTreated as if I owned the place!Very expensive dinner -- for my budget, a "special event" place. Absolutely superb service and quality food, especially the meats.
As a vegetarian, I thought some of the assorted vegetable "entree" preparations were undistinguished; the next time I'll order my vegetables a la carte -- especially the spinach and creamed corn!
Wonderful starters (baked goat cheese with portabella), salads and desserts (Grand Marnier creme brulee).
Again, the service was superb. We'll definitely return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but LOUDWe met a couple that we haven't seen in a year and looked forward to a great evening - which we did have with the impeccable service and outstanding food. The downside was that it was so loud, we could not carry on a conversation between the four of us.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe rib-eye was like butterMaybe the best steak I've had in a very long time, excellent wine list and superb service.We were a group of 5 and everyone had a superb evening.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was excellent.Our waiter was excellent.

My husband and I treated his mother and aunt, who were visiting from out of town, post opera. I LOVE Sunday night at Al Biernats.... haven't been a fan in the past, choosing other steakhouses in the area, because I've always felt it was too loud...never complained about the food though! Have to say our experience at 6pm on Sunday night was amazing....quiet but still energized...just a perfect atmosphere! Don't even have to comment on the food...again...always amazing!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWas a wonderful brunch. StaffWas a wonderful brunch. Staff was very attentive and food was devine. We were attending the opera afterwards and wanted a restaurant where we could not feel overdressed at lunch.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there on a doubleWe were there on a double date and had a great time.

They were extremely busy, crowded and noisy. However, the waiter Jesse and Al Biernat himself, did a fine job providing personal attention to our party and were very accommodating to our needs. Al was very visible and took time to stop by our table and personally tried to assist a unique drink request - they made it happen!
The food was excellent. Everyone in our party of 5 said their meal was very tasty and well prepared.
I would highly recommend the restaurant but be aware of how busy it may get during special occasions such as Easter or other special holidays.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchA fantastic, underrated brunch spot in Dallas. Delicious lobster scramble and pancakes...exceeded all expectations.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCherylBrunch was good. It was busy and loud as expected.
