A restaurant that triumphs in taste over trend, Hal's is not the typical highbrow restaurant so often equated with food of this quality. It is a place of white table cloths, flowers, warm brick, & candlelight.

    It was my birthday, which was acknowledged when we entered, but that was it. Maybe I was expecting a little fan fare. Maybe a candle on a dessert or something lol. Oh well. And, my date didn't like her sea bass and only took a couple of bites. When asked "how the meal is"? She said she didn't care for the bass. She might as well had been talking to the wall. The server never offered a replacement and the seem to speak to every manager about her displeasure. 15 to 20 minutes later i had to ask him to take it away and another 20 minutes later if they were going to take it off the check. Ive been frequenting Hal's for over 10yrs. Thx

    It was my partner and her twin sisters birthday celebrations, party of eight. Hal’s staff (Jimmy/Jim) and support were extremely accommodating. We had an assortment of different dishes, including the sea bass, 22oz ribeye, 12oz fillet, etc. All were flawless. The first time I’ve ever ordered seafood at Hal’s after many years, and I would again. Thanks for making the night a memorable one!

    Took my girlfriend here for a belated Mother’s Day Dinner. Everything was exceptional. Service, ambiance, and the food. We went with a bottle of Pinot noir, calamari, seafood gumbo, the filet and the filet au poivre, a side of asparagus, a side of lobster Mac, and the tiramisu. Every dish was AMAZING. While it might take some time for my wallet to recover, it was definitely worth the price of the experience. Highly recommend Hal’s if you’re looking for a steakhouse for a special occasion night out in Buckhead.

    The waiter gave us a canned speech regarding the menu. While the information was helpful he came across as going through the motions versus explaining the food choices. Other than that it was a great evening.

    Reserved for small party of 6 but an extra person should up and the staff was very accommodating. There were more entree offerings than just steak that makes Hal’s a perfect choice for people that want a different entree than steak. The food was fantastic! I look forward to another outing where I try a different entree.

    Absolutely amazing!! It was a special evening for us celebrating our 40th anniversary and Hal’s made the evening even more special. From the moment we were greeted by the host we knew the evening was going to be great. Both the host and the girl who seated us were very professional and polite. Our server Porter was the absolute best. He said he was honored to serve us on such a special occasion as he knew we could’ve chosen many other places. The meal was fantastic. We started with Hal’s signature lobster crabmeat appetizer and it was wonderful. The lobster was lightly fried accompanied by the crabmeat in a butter sauce was delicious. We then shared a bone in Filet and the Chilean Sea Bass. Both were done to perfection. We finished the dinner with Tiramisu that was a great combination of sweetness and texture. Thank you Hal’s and especially Porter for making our evening the best it could’ve been!!!

    Hal’s was way too crowded!!!! Not the atmosphere I was looking for. The dress code was not enforced. Could hardly move around. Never got to order or experience the food. I was looking forward to that. That’s the reason for the poor ratings on the food and price I had to choose something. May give it a try again I’m not quite sure yet.

    Hal’s is a classic restaurant that has refused to succumb to the changes in the restaurant business. It is as good as it was in the 90’s and every time I go it’s very nostalgic. Piano bar, dark but inviting environment, great food, excellent bar and good service. If you want a one-off fantastic experience in dining, go!
