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.

Reservation was at 9:15, we didn’t get sat until 9:50. My only complaint. Once you sit down, the service, and quality of food is unmatched. It feels like family.

Happening spot!! Very delicious steak prepared perfect. Lots of large parties so it was a little on the loud side and dim dim lighting. But very very good with excellent service

The food and the service was great but it was noisy. I felt like I was screaming to talk to the people at my table. There were six of us and we were seated at a round table which made talking to each other easier

Absolutely one of Atlantas best steak house dining experiences. Servers know the always impressive menu forward and backward in detail to answer any questions, including the nightly specials.

Place is a home run every time!

Everything was outstanding except the table. The table was small and against the wall and we felt cramped.

Poor sitting. Waiters pouring over you. Hurried. Just worried about turning table when you can smell the waiters while they serve over your shoulder. Too many better places in Atlanta to get a steak.

We sat upstairs and Robert took excellent care of us. It was our first experience at Hal’s (long overdue) and it did not disappoint. We loved everything about our dinner. Robert was very attentive and his recommendations were on point. We had oysters, fried lobster, the bone in filet, sea bass, creamed spinach & crispy balsamic brussels sprouts. We rounded out dinner with bread pudding & crime brûlée... amazing. We can’t wait to go back!

This is a really good restaurant. Pro service, great food, lots of fun. Don't feel you have to eat beef, which they push. The veal and fish dishes are great!

As always, food and service was exceptional. While I realize that Hal’s is typically a little louder than most restaurants it was unbearable tonight. LSU fans that were there were obnoxious and out of control and nobody on the staff, to my knowledge, said a word to them.

Food was good as always but our server did not deliver the service that a $500+ meal for 2 couples that it commands. Also no corkage fee is very atypical for a restaurant of this caliber.

Steak was overdone and extremely fatty. Been to Hal’s a lot...very out of character for Hal’s. The rest of the food was great! Outstanding fried lobster appetizer. Service was lackluster this time as well. No food menus provided at seating—we eventually had to just ask for them. Hal’s is usually 5 star awesome, but they missed the mark this time.

Hal’s was so fabulous! The best meal ever in “Hotlanta” and a place we will definitely return to!! Our service was impeccable and every single dish (and we had many) was beyond delicious! Thanks Hal’s for a wonderful evening and Geaux Tigers!!

Hal's was Amazing!! It was my first time visiting Hal's. It's been on my list for awhile now. I live in NOLA and I'm use to excellent food. This place was New orleans style all the way. Heath our server was First Class all the way!! He did a fantastic job and had an Awesome personality. Bone in Ribeye was amazing, Sea Bass was fantastic, sister got the veal marsala which was delicious. Even got to meet Hal who was Awesome. Thank you Jay Glazer for the wonderful recommendation!! I will be back every time I visit my sister. Mac an cheese an creamy mash potatoes were great sides.

A pretty good scene for the Atlanta elite. Lived in Atlanta for 20 years and have received numerous recommendations, even as far as, “best steak in Atlanta”. I’ve had much better steak and MUCH better service at other local competitors. Price point was middle of the road for a high quality steak house.

Found the waiter to be a bit pushy. We have gone there for decades and as family traditions, this year the experience was lost in how the waiter and what might have been his excitement picked our drinks to what we should order. Maybe it’s time for a new tradition.
