Steakhouse

Al's has defined fine-dining in St. Louis for 94 years; a beloved landmark which has earned its reputation as one of the top restaurants in the U.S. Featuring award-winning steaks, lobster, seafood and pasta, Al's creates the total dining experience. Fresh menu presentation, elegant tableside service, beautiful ambiance, generous portions and excellent wine list are the standard. Traditional offerings found at no other steakhouse include Chateaubriand, and our signature dish, "Beef Romano". Try Bananas Foster flambé for a sweet after dinner indulgence, or perhaps one of our coffee specialties. Third and fourth generations of the Barroni family invite you to join us for a nightly celebration of outstanding food, wine and ambiance.

Steak Romano and Al’s pasta are to kill for. The escargot is to die for. Portions are large so the prices seem high but they aren’t really. New diners beware, there are no menus. You do not know how much anything costs. If you have to ask you shouldn’t go. I’ve been going to Al’s since 1976 and there’s a reason for that. Al’s is the best!

Then our server came over and we were immediately like “phew”, she made us feel so comfortable and answered all our silly questions. The whole experience was incredible but my favorite part was when the manager (??) came to our table after our main course and told us the story about Al’s and it’s history. We were mesmerized; the whole atmosphere has this vibe (I don’t know any way other to describe it) that is so infatuating. The food was… there are no words that are appropriate for a review to describe how good it was. But the service??? The service was absolutely out of this world and we will never be able to thank Al’s for serving us and staying open past closing time just so we could still get dessert and hang out. 10000000/10 stars. If you’re in STL, you HAVE to go.

This gem will take you back in time with its old school style service, rustic dining setting and some of the best table side service once could ever ask for. And the food…well it will leave you with out words! Escargot, Filet Oscar, Al’s Pasta, Twice Baked Potato are my personal faves but the lobster Thermidor was remarkable as well! Enjoy!!

Showed up 45 min before reservation thinking we would sit at the bar and have a drink, bar was closed. The host/waiter seemed annoyed we had showed up early, did not make us feel welcome, and should have trusted our gut and left, but the place has clearly fallen on hard times, so wanted to follow through with our patronage. He said he could seat us but we would have to wait till he could get to us. Surveying the dining room of a 4 top and a 2 top we said sure as we were not in a hurry. Our drink order and drinks were timely, but we nearly finished the bottle of wine we ordered "with dinner" before the waiter told us the apps (no menus, no pricing) MORE THAN AN HR after we sat down. I mentioned to him wanting to order apps as we have almost finished the bottle of wine and had no food, and his response was a bit rude "you were early so that is what you get". We both ordered cocktail shrimp. Picked up first shrimp and it was warm, like it had just been cooked. Plate was chilled, checked out other shrimp which were less warm, but not cold, def not chilled. Even though the shrimps were warm on the outside, they were not fully cooked on the inside. We immediately put down the food and asked for the check. After spending close to 2 hours in the restaurant and spending over $300 on wine and shrimp we didn't eat, we left without eating dinner so that we could find a restaurant that was capable of serving us within the next hours as it was 9pm and we were hungry. The restaurant also marked our reservation likely to deter from leaving a bad review. I am sure this place was "the place" back in the day, but it has not kept with current times in terms of service level and quality of food. Strongly do not recommend.

I could have made a meal on the special appetizer -- consisting of a bit of barbecue, shrimp and toasted ravioli -- but room had to be left for the cold, crisp salad, perfectly done and savory filet, zesty Al's potatoes and asparagus with a rich, creamy hollandaise sauce to die for. Cream cheese butter was an added treat for the fresh bread and all topped by a most pleasant margaux and French vanilla ice cream for dessert. The waiter was, for the most part, excellent. The only negative was that a promised sorbet before the main course failed to appear because of a flop in the kitchen. My friend, who had an equally wonderful steak/lobster combo over asparagus, said it made for a truly memorable birthday. Of course, this had better be a special occasion. With wine and 20 percent tip, the bill came out to just north of $500. (The only questionable practice is that menus are given orally at the table and prices are never mentioned -- unless you ask. I suppose it's like the old maxim -- if you have to ask, you can't afford it.) But it was a truly pleasant and memorable experience. We were told it was a favorite place of Sinatra and we sat at Michael Landon's table although they don't do anything so gauche as hang pictures of the countless celebs who have eaten there.

From the escargot, to the perfectly cooked fillet and the amazing twice baked potato like you haven’t experienced in years. The service was outstanding in a very intimate setting. We were celebrating our son‘s 25th birthday and he chose the restaurant. My husband and I had not been there in literally 30 years and we will definitely return!

It is old school in every conceivable way. The menu is limited, but everything we had was close to perfect. It is expensive. But it is an experience and one that is singularly unique in StL, if not the whole of Missouri.

By far the best meal I have had in my life! The food was incredible. We went to celebrate our anniversary during COVID-19, but they took such great measures that I felt safe while there. By the time dinner was over I felt like we we were part of the Al's family, because they took such great care of us. It was wonderful. A must for a special occassion.

First, they are taking every precaution to provide a safe and ultra clean environment for all. My husband and I both ordered the filet Oscar for our entrees- the obvious choice!! Gary and James offered truly top notch service and made the entire experience a fantastic one. My husband and I have both traveled extensively and eaten at many fine dining establishments around the world and Al’s rates at the top of the list. We love this St. Louis institution. It was our first night out in quite some time, and we are so happy that we chose to go to Al’s.

We sat at the sweetest corner table - The Sinatra Table. Frank actually ate at this table and there are autographed photos of Ole Blue Eyes on the wall. During COVID-19 the place was a bit empty, but the owners husband waited on us and mixed our cocktails. He gave us the history of the restaurant. Memorabile evening in St. Louis!

The presentation and service by our server and his assistant James was outstanding. The background and history of Al's always lend an element to the experience that can't be found anywhere else. Al's always has been, and still is one of the greats.

Instead of menus, the server describes the meats with preparation options and ala carte sides. No prices are mentioned although they do ask up front who is paying the bill which is odd. Expect $100+ per person for a full meal. Servers are very attentive refilling water and wine, but not iced tea, and very slow to bring additional bread we requested. Plates are assembled tableside for presentation. Unfortunately, when serving much difficulty was had serving dishes to the correct person. We ordered filets of various sizes and temperatures. The first gentleman served cut right in and shared bites with others waiting for their meals. Only after other dishes were finally served was it obvious the wrong steak had been served to him initially. This resulting in leaving only half a filet for the person it should have gone to originally (offer was made to share however was too raw for his tastes). The $19 side of asparagus consisted of 6 bland stalks, the carrots were a better value but were still raw, the potatoes were okay, one side dish was missing. The next day, it was discovered a lobster (which we had not ordered nor received) had been added to our bill. My initial call went unreturned however they called my husband back immediately.

Her service was quick and she knew everything off the top of her head. The entire staff was far and above being helpful and accommodating. Everyone was regularly checking in and helping each other out. The food was out of this world. Makes me wish this was back home in Pittsburgh. Cant wait to come back again on the next visit to STL for work or play. Seriously an amazing experience.!

It is my favorite restaurant in the world. At least I rate it better than any restaurant I’ve ever been to. Bob, our server, is the best! He’s been at Al’s for 35 years and knows everything. Food is second to none. Thank you Al’s for another special Valentines dinner!

The table that was seated about 20 minutes after us, we were served with throughout the dinner including dessert, so they became the lead to our evening. Our food arrived modestly cool and the steaks were prepared wrong. It was easily noticeable the steaks waited for the attention of our server (Brenton). Why do they have a coffee maker in the dining room that has not worked for over 15 years, (informed by staff), I thought was bizarre. Dinner for 2 at $315 before tip would have been priceless, if the evening was executed as promoted by Al's. Al's is the last of the Laclede Landing River front and will soon turn its lights off.
