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.

We had a great evening at Hal's. Our server was Abi, he did a great job and had an answer to every question we had. My girlfriend and I will be talking about this night for a while.

I am a self admitted steak snob. I entertain for a living. This is one of the best Filet's I have ever had. Can't wait to go back!

Good service but the food was overcooked, chewy and tasteless. Not what I remember from years ago. Unfortunate..

A/c and fan combo chilly, but it was super hot outside so get that’s better than hot. I did asked for veggies in olive oil instead of butter and got just steamed so not much flavor, but steak very good. They did throw away my left overs I left on the bar when I went to valet too, but I’m trying to forget about the $35 worth of filet left overs I missed out on. ;)

Amazing food and service. We made reservations and arrived on time to be seated immediately. My date and I shared two appetizers which were both amazing. My date had the rack of Lamb and I had the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly. The food there is always consistent and that's why I love Hals.

Overall very nice restaurant. Took my boyfriend out for birthday dinner. He is a steak man baby!
Unfortunately his steak seem to taste a lot a gas grill. He gave up these grills several years ago and purchased a great egg which he loves.

No problem now he knows what questions to ask when preparing his next steak entrée!

Then he ordered a 12 ounce filet and asked for it blackened. I had the blackened filet medallions. They were amazing!

Unfortunately it was over seasoned and very salty. Not to worry though I had so much left over we shared my dinner.

I’m willing to give Hal’s another chance. Their waitstaff is amazing and general manager fabulous. He couldn’t apologize enough and offered additional dishes at no cost and comped the steak.

Cocktails were wonderful, side dishes outstanding, bread and wine to boot.

I highly recommend you try house. With that being said be very specific how you like your steak cooked.
Hal’s team prides itself on the flavor of their steaks!!!

Our meal and server were outstanding, the only issue was the amount of salt that the chef put on our bone in filet and our other filet ordered. I have been going to Hal's for over 15 years and this was my first experience with the chef oversalting our steaks...

Probably wouldn’t go back. Food was average and what I remember most is the noise and the cigarette smell.
Restaurant was full but to me there are better places out there.

For years we have gone to Hals when we are in town. Friday night was a disappointment. My fillet was cold when it was brought to the table. The barbant potatoes were cold as well. I sent them back for some hot ones. My wife got a raw oyster appetizer. There was so much garlic in them she could not eat them. I saw why my fillet was cold when I went to the bathroom. It appears they cook a bunch of fillets and sit them to the side of the grill on a large pan. I guess they reheat them a little before they bring them to the table. I don't think we will return for a while.

The food was fantastic but, we had HORRIBLE SERVICE. We waited 10 after being seated before our waited greeted us — no water prior. When our food arrived, the food runner had mixed up our steak temperature so he literally changed everyone’s plates around three times. Once we cut into the steaks, we had to exchange plates again. Our waited left while this musical plate experience was going on. We got us to find him to help resolve. We he came back over, he said he new it was wrong... no help. It would take forever for more drink rounds. Overall, this was not the service you would expect when you are paying $60 for a steak.

Excellent service from Andre. Our table on the second floor in dining room by window was great- kept noise level minimized.
My fiance requested her steak with slight bit of pink and it was charred and over seasoned. The lobster bite appetizer was great.

It was a nice place to go for good food, but not to celebrate an anniversary. Noise level really loud and not a cozy atmosphere.

Birthday dinner and everything was great. We had requested a cozy table and that was what we got. However, the noise level was still difficult, but I suppose that’s what you get with a super popular chance lace of this caliber! Worth enduring for the quality of the food. Probably the best filet and swordfish steak ever!

I’ve been going to Hal’s for 20 years and always love food and service. Last night, I ordered a ribeye steak low sodium, cooked medium temperature, but came out well done and salty. Bartender had them made a new one. The temperature was perfect, but the steak was saltier than the first one. I didn’t eat but two bites and paid for it. I don’t think it was acceptable for a steakhouse that caliber to mess up a steak twice! Was disappointing.

Saturday night in the upstairs dining room is not a good location for having meaningful conversations. Very difficult to hear yourself talk, much less others at the table. Hal's food is always excellent. Disappointed with the service level-server was way too busy to properly serve us.

Brian, our server, went above and beyond throughout our night. All of the serves made sure that our table stayed clean, removed any empty dishes and always provided amazing service for our colleague away dinner.

The food was so good that I forgot to take pictures lol I was to caught up in the ambiance and my guest.

My steak came out raw. By the time my new steak arrived..about 20 minutes later...my wife had finished her dinner. This is the first time in about 15 visits to this restaurant that this happened. Really did not enjoy my meal.
