Steak
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.

BEST STEAKS EVER!!!
If I was told I could eat only 1 more steak the rest of my life, I would chose Hal’s as my choice!

Steaks were good, but in the past they have always been excellent!! Tonight, the steaks were way too salty. And the Mac and cheese was very salty. Still a great meal and we had a great time.

Waiter Robert Haddad was OUTSTANDING! Despite a jam packed restaurant full of holiday celebrations, his attentiveness, professionalism and excellent guidance on both the menu and wine list were as good as we have ever experienced (and we eat out a lot). Great restaurant, great ambiance and great service are a winning combination. We will return often!

We had a 7pm reservation and were not seated until 7:35pm. We were celebrating a birthday, asked for a quiet table and got seated in the middle of the room, right between two large parties, one of which was pretty rowdy. My fried oyster appetizer was very tasty. Our waiter was wonderful. My steak was very salty. There were also smokers at the bar, which I thought was not allowed in restaurants....? I'm not planning to return.

Service has gone down a bit. We didn't receive any bread. We only received one of the two sides our entrees came with. My steak was luke warm at best, but my wife's was hot. We both ordered medium rare. Would go back as we love Hal's, but it's not the same as it once was.

Fantastic as always!

The food is delicious! Cooked to order perfectly. The lobster morsels are to die for and the lobster truffle Mac & cheese is a favorite!

Andre is the BEST server. He goes above and beyond to make any dining experience at Hal’s exceptional! He’s the best- ask for him on your next visit!

Hal's is THE place to go in Atlanta! The food was outstanding and so was the service. It was packed the night we went and even though we had to wait for our table, the staff and management were very accommodating!

Hal's - always top-notch. Always loud. Always the best ambiance in an Atlanta steakhouse.

Hal's brings it with the appetizers, mains, desserts, and cocktails. It's reliably terrific. We had a delay in seating for an 8:30 p.m. reservation, however the wait was shorter than expected, and the balance of the evening was perfect.

Energetic, exciting, enthusiastic. That's Hal's.

Hal’s...it had been a while for me. I must say, the service was on point. I think Jamal was the name of our service. He didn’t skip a beat. The food is always consistently good and you can typically count on a lively environment.

Excellent experience. I even accidentally clicked the wrong # to cancel the reservation based on their automated text but they still honored the reservation day of.

Good food but way too many tables crowded into the rooms and the noise level is ridiculously loud. We couldn’t even carry on a conversation.

Hal's has great food. But the noise level is beyond the level I am comfortable with. Even the waiter had to yell or pass around the table and speak directly into each guest's ear to be heard. If you are looking for an evening out to have a great dinner and conversation or talk business you need to go somewhere else. If you want excellent food and service and noise doesn't bother you, Hal's provides that in spades. Additionally, there is cigar smoking in a special area near the bar. It is supposed to be isolated but you do get a whiff of cigar smoke at times.

Way overpriced. Servers tried to deliver wrong food to our table twice. The fillet medallions were overcooked and had very little taste. Rack of lamb was absolutely covered in rosemary, I guess to hide the fact that it had very little taste. Used to be a favorite. Wont be going back. Bill $350 for 4 people.

Food and service were very good but it was very loud and for the price it left like a pub- lots of people hanging out at the bar watching football not an upscale fine dinning experience. Would not go back as a result.

Unbelievably bad 2nd visit. Ordered steak medium. Came out completely rare. Had to find someone to ask to have it sent back...and I never send stuff back. It came back and was still raw in the middle - still cold. My husband and I swapped as his was slightly less raw. But then the steak was an absolute salt BOMB! Service was non-existent. So disappointed. I will not be going back, especially when there are so many other great steakhouses in the city.

The restaurant had a piano player for entertainment. We were seated right away to our table, no waiting. The food was excellent. Everything was quite tasty including their desserts. I was there to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter was attentive as well as other wait staff. I do plan to visit the restaurant again. I really, really enjoyed my experience.

Great food. Recommend going early if you want a quieter dinner with less risk of cigar smoke exposure. Things start to get loud at 7 on Saturday.
