Tuna poke was truly lackluster and over priced for what we got. Not up to standard by any means.

Overall this was a good experience. However, there were a couple of things that were not to our expectations. We sat outside and a fly landed in my friend’s drink. The server took the drink and brought her another drink but it didn’t appear to be a clean glass. Our thought was surely a restaurant of this caliber would not do this. Also, the to-go boxes did not have all of my friend’s food. I’m not sure if this was an off day for your restaurant but we were shocked at the level of service we experienced.

Unlike the chain steak houses, Al Biernat offers many more options, especially sides and desserts. The goat cheese salad was large enough to split and the sun dried tomato dressing was light but very tasty. The lobster was sweet and the steak was cooked to perfection. The mushroom risotto was a nice alternative side as well but a little more garlic than we prefer. The only opportunity was that by the time we left at 7, it was so loud that we could hardly hear one another.

Great service beginning with the Valet upon arrival. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice Texas fall weather. Nice selection of food items on the menu. You will not be disappointed.

I understood the fact that they were busy ,but to wait 15 minutes on a salad is ridiculous , waited 10 minutes after they sat us for the waiter to come to our table , got food 40 minutes after we ordered it and at that the food was warm not hot but warm!! Worst experience ever ..

Couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate my employees. We ordered a few appetizers and were delightfully pleased with the beef Wellington, crab cakes, and calamari. Surprisingly, none of us ordered steak from the lunch menu. Most of us ordered a seafood plate and were not disappointed! I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. Our server even asked the chef for a side dish of lobster risotto, to which he obliged, although it’s only on the dinner menu, not the lunch menu. We closed our meal with the chocolate cake, shared by all. It was perfect. Overall, a wonderful experience and will definitely return.

The place was jumping for Thursday night. We were checked in and seated quickly. Every staff member as we walked by and said hello. I’ll wait I had great knowledge of the menu. We had the sea bass and the short ribs. Both were delicious. I absolutely would recommend without reservation. I will certainly be back.

Consistently one of the best steakhouse restaurants in the world. The food is excellent but most importantly the service is first class. Every time I travel to Dallas I eat here and I’m never disappointed. Thank you once again for making our meal such a pleasure.

I finally found a wonderful steakhouse in Dallas! I’ve been looking for three years for something to replace my favorite in Nashville. We had such a great time, the place is so cute and felt good energy. Drinks and food were wonderful. Loved the prime rib and potatoes.

As a first-timer who dines frequently at nicer restaurants, I was disappointed with Al Biernats - mostly with the ambiance/facility, service level, and crowds. The restaurant itself looked really worn (especially the floors!), with a makeshift wooden deck outside…for the ratings, I would have expected a nicer, service-oriented restaurant. It was super-crowded, maybe overcrowded, and did not meet expectations for a business dinner. Food quality was pretty good, but I won’t be returning.

Dining room was very uncomfortable - extremely cold , not cool, cold.
Food was good however tuna was tepid and creamed corn was cold - corn was replaced once waiter was notified. Bread is substandard for restaurant of Al Biernat’s caliber.
My husband’s filet was perfect however compared to a Keane’s Steakhouse or Peter Luger’s overall experience was disappointing .

From the outset Al Biernat’s staff hit just right tone of full service and unobtrusive attentiveness that is so often missed at ‘nice’ restaurants. Everyone was knowledgeable and the food was perfect! Though the restaurant was crowded we felt as if we had our own little island of privacy. The service was well-paced and we never had to ask for anything. Overall an excellent experience and superb meal!

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.

It wasn’t the best night at Al Biernet’s, our favorite restaurant in Dallas. I usually get the 12oz filet because it’s so wonderful. This time it was extremely hard to cut. A real struggle between me and the steak. Usually, it cuts like butter and every bite is heavenly. It had a good taste, but I had to really chew every bite with everything I had to get through it. The sea bass was perfect and the sides and bread was delicious. The coconut cream pie was incredible as always. Also, the service was not friendly as it usually is. It was like the waiter had a chip on his shoulder. We had this same waiter on our engagement last year and again on our anniversary this year. Made us feel not welcome at all. He would be a great fit at Appleby’s (my wife remarked). We’ll come back to Al Biernet’s again because we love it, but we won’t be accepting this particular waiter for a third time.

After reading all the great reviews, we were looking forward to eating at Al Biernat's. However, it was an overpriced Capital Grille. I had the sea bass, which was good but the lobster risotto was subpar. My husband had the special (T-bone) and he thought it was good but not great. We shared the blacked prawns, which were good. We both had the lobster bisque, which did not have pieces of lobster in it, was over blended and could have been canned. We had the coconut cream pie and it was okay. The best part of the experience was the service.

Fabulous night with excellent service and great tasting food. The lobster thermidor special was beyond amazing, weighing in at 4 pounds. A 3 pound lobster that had the meat tossed in a parmesan buttermilk sauce and topped with blue crab meat then toasted under the broiler. The grilled pear salad was a nice size with ample manchego and lots of almonds. The cowboy rib eye was a smart choice for a beef eater. Would definitely spend another special occasion here.

Very elegant restaurant with great food. A good place to celebrate a milestone event. Expect to pay upscale prices but you will not leave hungry as the portion size is decent, which is not always the case with high-end restaurants. The place is very busy and a bit loud. All in all, it is a very good restaurant.
