A Thursday evening, my prime rib was as expected: good. Both of my guests ordered the Dover sole, both, almost simultaneously curled up their respective noses and complained of the smell and bad taste of the fish. We sent the fish back and ordered 2 filets, by the time the filets came out, my prime rib had grown cold, my wife ended up putting her filet and baked potato in a doggy bag to take home and our guest only ate part of hers. All in all it was a disjointed and unpleasant eating experience. The ordering waiter was loud and hurried and he made an unpleasant dinner for 3 even more unpleasant. The man did not deserve the 20% tip, but we did tip that amount because the waiters and busters don’t cook the food or manage the restaurant. This is, by far, the most wasted $300+ I have ever spent at any restaurant.

I’ve been to this restaurant many times, this is the first time I have come away so disappointed.

Definitely wasn’t expecting large portions for the starters but the Chicken Wing “Lollypops” and the Mini Beef Wellingtons were delicious. Lobster Mac and Cheese is the best I’ve ever had. The best part about the meal was the key lime pie with the blood orange sorbet. I will go just for that combo.

The staff is definitely the epitome of customer service. I wish I remembered our waitress’s name because she was great while we ate one of the best meals we’ve ever had!

We have eaten at Al Biernat’s countless times and have always has an excellent dining experience. Unfortunately, this time left much to be desired. We had Easter brunch and while the food was delicious our server, Taylor, made us feel as though we were at a fast food drive thru. He completely rushed us and ruined our lunch. I even told him “ I feel as though you are ready to get us out of here.” He never asked if we were ready for another cocktail or dessert/coffee. Very poor service. I understand they were very busy for Easter, but that should not take away from our time.

We are in search of the best steak in the DFW area and bust a different restaurant each month - “The Great Steak-out of 2019.” We loved the experience at Al Biernat’s in Oak Lawn. The food was wonderful, the menu varied and ambiance welcoming.

We went in for my wife’s 35th birthday. Jesus, our waiter, help made the experience unforgettable. The attention to detail really surprised us as it’s not often we experience something like that.

The food, out of this world. Tried the A5 Kobe beef and it literally melted in your mouth! We will definitely be back.

Thanks Al!!

We were celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary on Friday evening. We had been there a few years ago. We don't go very often because of the expense, but I would recommend it for special celebrations. The steaks were excellent !

Outstanding in a crowd of good grill restaurants.

Dallas is known for outstanding restaurants. Al Biernat’s stands out amongst the crowd of really good steak and grill restaurants in the Uptown neighborhood. Service was consistently on point from the initial gracious welcome and confirming if the table is suitable for the evening to the final “Is there anything else I may get for you?”

Al Biernat’s is known for outstanding steaks and lobster. We ordered a New York Strip and Ribeye “medium rare plus” which we expected served hot with a warm red center. When the steaks were served the waiter asked us to cut into the center to check that the steak was prepared to our liking. They booth had a cool red center so they took them back and within minutes returned with both perfectly grilled to our liking. Salads and sides were all delicious!

The Al Biernat difference is clearly experienced throughout the whole meal. When salads and entrees are served fresh ground pepper is immediately offered. The waiter offers to serve side items to each person at the table. Beverage glasses are unobtrusively watched through out the evening and replenished without asking. The five star service is consistently on point because the two managers work the entire restaurant and graciously ask each table how they are enjoying their dinner and is there anything else they can do for them.

Weekend reservations at prime dining times need to be booked early in the week. Enjoy!

Decided to get the 1/2 lb of King Crab legs for an entree and was very disappointed. 2 skinny legs that were watery. Sides were excellent but for $40 entree was overpriced and under delivered. Rare from my past experience at Al’s

The first time we visited Al Biernats, the experience was pleasant. This second time, it was really poor. The server came to our table with a handful of dirty dishes to take our drink order, despite not having provided us drink menus. She eventually got us a drink menu and then took our drink order, which took more than 15 minutes. She then asked us if we were ready to order dinner, despite never having brought us food menus. So we finally got food menus and ordered an appetizer. The appetizer came and went while the dinner menus sat crowded on our too small table, and we never did get asked for our dinner order, so we requested the check and left. We then went and had dinner at Eddie V’s down the street, where the service was excellent.

We were visiting from California and decided to try this well known steak house . They have valet which makes it easy especially since it was a Saturday night so it was very busy at 7 pm. We had a reservation so we were greeted and sat immediately . Our waiter was attentive along with other table servers. We had great martinis and appetizers - escargot. Salads were good. Our entrees were fabulous . We had the lobster and the tomahawk . The sides were ok - not great ( mashed potatoes and corn). Overall this was a great restaurant , but it is very loud in the dining room.
