Wonderful Father's Day BrunchThe crab Benedict was amazing and not heavy at all.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!This is the second time we've eaten here. Both times it has been outstanding. Every wait staff person who waited on us or encountered us told my husband Happy Birthday. It was truly special. Our only problem was, that I ordered a coffee drink and it was served lukewarm. We told a waitperson and it was immediately whisked away and another one, freshly hot, was delivered in its place. We can wait to go back and take our friends!! We also had to change our reservation from 4 to 2 and it was not a problem. They were even very nice when we arrived late due to Dallas traffic (we live an hour away).6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent!We love to dine at a neighborhood place that is also one of the best steak and seafood spots in town. The service from our conversational waiter to additional waitstaff were attentive. It also fun to a few friends or acquaintances every time we dine. I received a big slice of chocolate cake as a birthday surprise and the carrot cake was also great. My family loved the sweet potato fries and choice of gins and vodkas!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest filet in DFWAlways a hit! The filet never fails to meet every expectation you can imagine. Wonderful!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceOur meal and the service we received were excellent. If you are going for a steak, which we were, all three of us walked away delighted with our filets. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and knew just the right times to appear at the table.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMthe flowers ordered at thethe flowers ordered at the time I made the reservations were beautiful, the service impeccable, the food incredible, and the wine delicious. Best Birthday celebration ever!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DestinationWe love to go to Al Biernat's for special occasions......anniversaries, b'days, Mother's and Father's Day. The food isi delicious, the servers are so attentive, and everyone makes you feel special!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, Al Biernats wasAs usual, Al Biernats was absolutely wonderful. My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary and it was a perfect dinner from beginning to end. We will be back again for sure. Thank you6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for any occasion!Wonderful food and great service! If you need a place for guarantied great food to impress!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDining in DallasWe enjoyed our time at Al Biernats and had excellent service. My only disappointment was my table in that there was too much traffic with wait staff. I only regret that I didn't request a different table once they seated us not there would have been one available. It is a very popular place.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA long time Dallas gemI've been eating at Al Biernat's for years and the food, service, and ambience has stood the test of time. This is a great place to take your spouse or significant other...they will thank you for sure. It's not inexpensive but you get all you pay for and more. Try it out, you will not be disappointed.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!I love Al's! Best filet in town and always accommodating. Service is top notch and while I have never actually met Al (like everyone says they have), I keep going back for the food and the experience! Brie is fantastic, goat cheese salad was good, both mushroom and lobster risotto are fabulous, and I highly recommend the coconut cream pie with a glass of Taylor Fladgate tawny port (go for the 20 year!)6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperior food and serviceSuperior food and service . Excellent wine list and best martinis in Dallas!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Shelf DinnerYou drive up, Valets guys are great, walk inside and you greeted by three or four people, often including Al. You are seated promptly and the service just builds up from there. Impeccable service, food is outstanding and the visit is just perfect. We've never had better service or food in the state of Texas. Our waiter knows what we want so we seldom even look at the menu. If you are looking for a perfect dinner for guests, business associates or just a romantic dinner I don't think you could find a better establishment. Most of the big steak houses seem to rely on bringing in hundreds of people and getting them in and out. Al's place is a joy to visit and my wife and I are amazed every time we go by their perfection.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimeOverall I truly enjoyed my dining experience. The noise level was far too high, but it allowed conversation to flow and those dining to not have to be too mindful of themselves and be able to enjoy their dining experience. It was very difficult to understand specials and other special notes from the waiter because of the noise level but the overall atmosphere is very enjoyable. Smiling faces, people enjoying themselves, EXTREMELY hospitable staff (all very courteous and respectful). Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful evening for myself and my girlfriend on our one year anniversary.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss This in DallasA Dallas icon. Wonderful service with fabulous food and a spectacular wine list. Easy to hear normal conversation across the table. Perfect pace and attentiveness. If you are in Dallas and love a great steak house, this is the one.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably excellentThe level of service, food and ambiance are unparalleled. Outstanding, always. Reliably excellent. I love this place!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh Energy Vibrant Steak HouseUpon arriving @ 7:45 for our 8 o'clock reservation we were greeted warmly and reassured our table will be ready shortly, we had a glass of champagne in the crowded energetic bar area by an equally energetic bartender. Upon being seated at our table we were greeted by our friendly waitress Debbie. We ordered appetizers, salads, entrees, and dessert! Everything tasted great except the Osso Bucco was dry instead of moist, the risotto was half cooked, the creme brûlée was too runny, and the blue cheese dressings was watery. My oysters were great, my wife's tomato and mozzarella salad was good, her scallops and prawns tasted great and her key lime was good. Service was PERFECT and the atmosphere very energetic !!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMRon and KimThe food was incredible, this is an incredible restaurant.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect anniversary spotMe and my wife went here for our anniversary and we had a great time. Be ready to spend a pretty penny but it's definitely worth it.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful in every wayMy steak and my wife's seafood were excellent. The wine--a pinot noir recommended by our waiter---was young but, after breathing awhile, acquired a delightful body. The food, the service, the ambience: everything contributed to an excellent evening. I could never ask for a better experience!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak I've had in a whileWe ordered the 14 oz filet minion to split and It honestly was the best cooked piece of meat I have had in ages. The drinks were cold and the bread basket was delicious. The wedge salad
Was perfectly chilled and the sides were hot and delicious.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA special place for a special dayMy family and I enjoyed a wonderful brunch at Al Biernats. From the moment we walked in, we were treated by enthusiastic and happy employees. We felt they were waiting for us to arrive. Service was exceptional, menu was perfect for brunch and the food was fantastic. Cheese grits were amazing.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing...Took some work colleagues here and found the service, food and wine list outstanding. Escargot was the best I've ever had and steak was delicious.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAl and Brad are the best!The gracious service from Al, Brad and the entire staff is what sets Al Biernats apart from other fine dining restaurants in Dallas. The food is always excellent, but what we remember the most is how well we are treated.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service!My family was visiting from out of town and I wanted to treat them to a special dinner at Al Biernats. The service was outstanding as usual but I have mixed feelings about the steak preparation. I ordered the Waygu 20 oz bone in ribeye to be cooked medium-rare and the cut was prepared close to medium-well. Even our server made mention of it. At close to $70 per cut, I was hesitant to send it back. At that price though, I expect my steak to be cooked perfectly though so I asked our server to refire the entree. 15 minutes later, I receive a steak that is cooked rare. I settled on it figuring that's about the closest to medium rare I was going to get. My sister had a similar issue but to a lesser extent. Still a great place to go though!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile this restaurant is thoughtWhile this restaurant is thought of primairly as a steak house, the menue is much broader and includes a variety of seafood dishes and specialty items not normally found in the best steak houses. Great food, excellent service and warm friendly atomsphere. One of our faverites.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!I love Al Biernats!! Everything was delicious and the staff is super friendly.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOff the charts!Flawless in every respect. Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent wine list. Excellent atmosphere.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBRILLIANT!!!!!My partner and I were visiting his family in Dallas for his birthday and was recommended s Al Biernat's for a special birthday dinner. When we arrived, the maître d immediately wished my partner, as most of the staff did, a very happy birthday. The care and attention they gave was unsurpassed. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonferful ExperienceMy wife and I came in for the first time to celeberate our 1 year anniversary. From the moment we came to the houstess stand to the time we left all of our expectations were met. Our server Jesus was wonderful, food was excellent and Al him self was very nice and responsive to all customers.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHIgh end place with no lowsAl Bernait's is always a fine dining experience. The staff was superb, as usual, and Al's kind, and mild temperament is always a pleasant added attraction.
You can't miss at Al Bernait's!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently delicious!We brought out of town guests to Al's and they loved it as much as we always do. Because Al's is usually there overseeing, the restaurant stays consistently great!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM"The" PlaceIt's always the best In food, service, atmosphere and all the things that make for a great dining experience at Al's.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must on your Bucket ListThis place is just outstanding, the Service and food...wedge salad, appetizers and Steaks. Better than Pappas, Three Forks, Bob's Chop & Steakhouse, Ruth Chris, Chamberlians and etc.... Nicole gave us great service with a smile and healthy dose of personality. Try it and you will see what I call it my favorite as a Foodie.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest 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 AMOld favorite disappointsWent to Al Biernat's for Mother's Day brunch. While I realize this is a challenging day for restaurants, never the less the service was very disappointing. When we arrived, departing customers were complaining about the valet parking and grabbing keys out of storage in frustration. An appetizer of Calamari was served stone cold. After a long wait ,the waiter agreed to replace the calamari and bring drinks. Neither arrived for over 15 minutes. Finally hot calamari was delivered but no drinks. This pattern of disinterested service continued throughout the lunch. I expect better out of this old favorite place. We will give Al's another shot I am sure but,there are too many great choices in Dallas to put up with this.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 AM
