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.

Service was excellent
Food was excellent
We were seated at a very small table barely big enough for our plates and worse yet the table was tucked under the stairwell leading upstairs
Also the table was in the service area so our view was of all the wait staff hovering around.....

Monday night wasn’t as busy as usual and, therefore, we were able to have a fairly quiet dinner upstairs. Delicious as always!

Good was great. Service was more of an order take than a fine dining waiter.

Magic show was cool.

Mac and cheese w/ truffle was excellent.

Bone in Filet was superb

The recommendation from our server for the lobster app was a great recommendation very tasty. We have had the carpaccio in the past and was excellent. The meat componant this time was good but was overpowered by the additional parm and drizzle. I was eating more cheese then meat
I enjoy veal and asked if the veal was sliced or sliced and pounded. Told pounded. The mouth feel was tough the meat tasted as if it were frozen and was not tender, if it had been pounded it would have broken down the bonds.
Have been to Hals in the past and completely enjoying the experiance, I knew seating is tight. My experiance this time had the guest behind me ramming his chair into mine the entire dining experiance. When I asked him for some room he looked at me and made a smart comment. That did not help to set the tone for the dining experiance.
However, with all that said I would go back to Hals but stick to the Filet which is excellent.

The food and service at Hal's is always wonderful! There are so many great choices it is hard
to choose! I wish the two person tables were a little larger and there was a little more light,
but love the service and the food!

Steak was over cooked and scorched, not one of their better efforts. Everything else was okay.

Best Pittsburgh style filet in Atlanta. Consistently excellent. Service was impeccable, attentive without being intrusive. My wife had the Chilean sea bass and proclaimed it the best she ever had. And she has eaten a lot of sea bass over the years.

I’ve been dining at Hal’s before it was Hal’s on Old Ivy, since 1996. Love it love it love it. Nothing has changed except the pricing and it’s just right.

We live in the neighborhood and Hal’s has always been top in our list of special restaurants. I specifically ask to be down stairs but in a quieter corner or porch. We were with friends for a special occasion. They seated us upstairs and it was so loud that we could not hear a word. I told hostess that I had them note when I called. She said if we did not go upstairs that it would be a very long wait. The couple at the table next to ours chewed the table next to them out for being so loud. Energetic is one thing. Loud so you can not enjoy your dinner and company is another. Very disappointing to have a special restaurant become a place you do not want to go or take guests to.

The Hal’s special bone-in ribeye is probably the best steak in Atlanta.

Other than the smoking downstairs, we hate smoking and the damage it does to lungs, we moved upstairs and although it’s very dark and old design, our food and server was fabulous! The only other big issues was that the valet parking guy pulled our car up, got out while it was in reverse not park. As my husband was about to walk behind the car he noticed it was moving back. Valet jumped back in to get It Into PARK. So dangerous !!!!!

We brought a very nice bottle of wine to have with our steak and were prepared to pay corkage, but our waiter notified us that Hal’s does not allow it. We were shocked. This is the only restaurant in Atlanta that has denied us this privilege. We collect wine from around the world and enjoy opening it over a fine meal outside of our home - and we never argue with a corkage fee. This is very unfortunate. Furthermore, the steak was over-cooked and the restaurant was smoky from the bar. We though Atlanta banned smoking in restaurants. Despite being repeat patrons over recent years, we will NEVER go back to Hals. And we will share our experience with others.
