The power went out in the kitchen earlier in the evening...and we were told the AC was trying to catch up. The entire time it was SOO hot we could not enjoy our meal and ended up quickly eating and leaving. It was extremely disspointed as I've been there many times and always enjoyed it.

Worst experience ever. Food quality has gone down. They do not care about restaurant week guests. Neither server nor manager on duty care that Porkchop was not edible. Replacement was not offered. Had to call the next day to work things out with manager.

This was my first time here and I am sure we will be back. The ambiance was great and the attention we received by our waiter was excellent. The meal we had was tops. The red snapper and other ingredients was tops and this is considered a top restaurant in the area!

Went for Restaurant Week. Full house, but always full when we go. A bit noisy. Service excellent as usual. Waiter excellent. Wife had osso bucco and loved it. I had ahi tuna as starter which was nice. Then had grilled pork chop that was moist and sauce excellent . Long standing Restaurant that I always recommend.

I can’t say enough excellent things about this restaurant. The food was amazing. The service was just incredible. Tito, our server was an absolute gem and never once steered us wrong on meal selections. It was our first time with coconut cream pie and let me tell you ... DELISH!!! The manager stopped by to say “hello” and see how we were doing.

Unfortunately, my Red Snapper was a bit fishy, one of the other ladies in my party also had the Snapper and hers was dry. I thoroughly enjoyed the crab and corn chowder. I'd return just for that. Our waiter was a bit inattentive for such a small crowd that was there at our 11:30am sitting. I let him know about my fish dish, and he never offered me an option. To top it ALL off, he broke a dish and the glass flew and hit my colleague's arm and shoulder. He never apologized and he continued to put the saucer in the plate of my other colleague's food that he was packaging "to go". For it to have been my first time at your restaurant, I wasn't pleased and have heard so much great stuff about Al Biernat's. I then thought maybe because we got the Restaurant Week options that made us less important and that was not very pleasing to see or experience. The crab and corn chowder was delicious!!!

Dinners were good. Sending a steak back which was ordered very rare and came through medium well put a downer on the meal and second came out rare not very rare as requested.
We were given great service as always at Al’s. It’s a favorite.

The appetizer could’ve been much better, the sauce was fantastic but not the pastry texture itself. The rest of the food was good but I had higher hopes. Impeccable service though absolutely no doubt!

There is no dress code. Men in short pants with hairy legs everywhere, not even casual, some cut off jeans. Waiter was loud and obnoxious, seems he needed a lot of attention. Service was slow and had to request coffee refill, no water served until after meal (and had to ask for it). Bread plate pulled from under me while I was chewing and had a piece of bread in my hand. Food was not anything you can't find anyplace else. It's not what it used to be and is just another much to do about nothing.

We reserved a table for Restaurant Week during the soft opening starting officially on August 13, 2018.
Al Biernat's has a great atmosphere, great service, but the food was bland. I had the Red Snapper. The fish was cooked perfectly but I guess to disguise the smaller portion for the Restaurant Week crowd they covered it in vegetables, chopped red something, chopped green something, it was just...ugh.
We have attempted Restaurant Weeks in the past where they just served a smaller portion from a dish on the menu. It seems the last 2-3 years, the restaurants are using Restaurant Week to make a sizeable profit, instead of providing a sample of their menu to entice diners back in the future.
It's a shame really. We will not be back to this location, as I felt the higher prices were really just to keep the riff raff out of this Highland Park hangout, and not allocated for the dining experience. Perhaps the alternate location is able to serve interesting, tasteful food, at the same price.

My husband and I went during brunch; however, my husband wanted a filet that wasn't on the brunch menu, but they made it clear there was no problem ordering. Everything was cooked perfectly. The waitstaff (Brian was our waiter and Abby was tending bar) were absolutely excellent. I ordered a dessert drink that I saw online, but Abby didn't have all the ingredients - she did make something comparable that I will definitely be going back for!
