Everything was fantastic, although as this being my first time here (my date is a long time customer), it was much noisier than I expected. That is the ONLY negative aspect of my experience.

Came here on Friday to celebrate me and my girlfriend's anniversary. Amid the virus, servers were funny, prompt, and the food was great as usual. As were drinks, espresso, and dessert.

May I please get a redo soon!

Can’t swear to it but i think they’ve lowered most wine prices. We had two great ones that were a real value. The food - as always - was truly fantastic as was the service. Looking forward to the next time.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Al Biernats never disappoints. The food is consistent and outstanding. The service is first class and makes you feel special. Miguel is one of the most knowledgeable and attentive servers. Landon provided a warm welcome and came by to check on our table at multiple points in the evening as well. Whether you're having a casual dinner or celebrating a special occasion, you can't go wrong with Al Biernats!

Father Daughter (5) date, and the staff at Al’s May it really enjoyable for both us. I eat there regularly, but having a child in at 6:30 did not change the quality of the service at all.

Al’s is our go to spot. Always incredible food, exceptional service, warm hospitality, good value, and my favorite place to eat in Dallas. Do yourself a favor and dine at Al Biernat’s...you’ll understand.

Our experience at Al’s was perfect A caveat though was that we had outdoor seating which was in a sheltered patio area and very pleasant. We were so glad we didn’t have seating inside the restaurant itself as it was deafeningly noisy.

The food was amazing and the wine list was even better. We had a great time with friends. Party of 8 and our waitress knew just how to take care of us. She never seemed rushed or overwhelmed with the larger party size. We will definitely be returning.

Al Biernat's is always good, but food and service were a little off from their usual performance. As it was Tuesday night, we expected busy, but not overly so. Service was a bit slow (they are usually incredibly fast), and there was some confusion on the orders. Two of the steaks were overcooked, which was surprising as they are some of the best in Dallas. I'm sure this was a one-time thing, but Al Biernat's has trained us to expect perfection EVERY time. Not to worry, we'll be back again..

Great evening with good food and attentive service from Sean. I've forgotten what a diverse menu, something for everyone and a huge selection of the world's best wines. Food preparation was excellent and presentation very artistic! Great execution and we will be back soon, thanks! Well done!

The food and the atmosphere was great, this was our first time here. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday, we went on a Sunday so we got to experience the brunch menu. We will definitely be back for brunch again soon and we also want to have dinner here. If the dinner is as good as brunch I’m sure we won’t be disappointed.

Was frankly disappointed with our experience. I was taking my son and his fiancé out for an engagement celebration. I had not been there before - but the reputation amongst the community made me select this restaurant.

First of all - if you are going for a quiet, elegant evening - this is not for you. But if you are looking for "a scene" then I would suggest this would fit your needs - but make sure to bring your hearing iAds.

Secondly - the service was honestly like a Chili's - rushing you in an out to obviously turn the table. Our server spent absolutely no time establishing any rapport with us - and didn't have 10 words of conversation outside of "are you ready to order". It was absolutely insulting.

Thirdly - the food quality was the largest disappointment. The shrimp cocktail and crab cake appetizers were quite nice - but my filet oscar-style was bland, no flavor and the steak quality was just a total train wreck. I will compliment the mashed potatoes as being the best part of my meal - and I don't care for mashed potatoes normally.

I frequent high-end dining establishments with some regularity. This was just so sad.

OH - but the wine list was pretty darn good and the prices were not out of line. Unlike our food :(

We went Saturday evening to celebrate our engagement. We were treated like royalty. The champagne and desert were very nice touches and really made our evening special. Of course the service was excellent as was the food. We will definitely be back.

Took my college son to an early dinner here. It was beautiful so we chose outdoor seating. Inside was a bit of a scene while the patio was more serene. Great food. Highly recommend.

First class environment and lots of energy. Fantastic food from appetizers to the steaks and lobster every dish at the our table was really delicious. Our service was good- a few things were forgotten- but not a problem. Overall I look forward to going again !

Wonderful place wonderful service from Al himself as well as staff. We came as a family of 9 with kids and my father in law had a walker and trouble walking ; as Al saw us come he told his staff to assign the table closer keeping the elderly in mind. Never mind that the food has never disappointed us here! I highly recommend Oaklawn location to experience wonderful staff and wonderful food.

This is a great place for a small group dinner! It is quite loud, so I don't recommend it for a ate night, but the energy will make for a fun birthday or guys/girls night out!

The food is delicious every time, and the service in on point! This is a Dallas staple and for good reason!

My fiancé and I love Al’s; the ambience is really the best part. This time, however, I felt that the food came out very quickly, and it almost seemed like they had been pre-cooking steaks and various meals. I feel that it has happened once before as well. It is definitely noticeable, and it makes me want to look around more at the other options in Dallas.

Food was great as expected but was very disappointed in the lack of attention to our celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. Told them in advance what we were celebrating and all we got was a "happy anniversary" from our server. To pay their prices and get nothing to signify our anniversary was a slap in the face. I've been there for the last time!

The food was good but not exceptional. For the cost, not that great. There was confusion in the beginning, not knowing who my waiter was, because there were two asking what we wanted and then got something different than we thought we had ordered. I like Nick and Sams better.
