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.

All aspects of the dining experience were great! However, several of our guests commented on the “unfriendly door man” who left a miserable first impression of Hal’s. Also a smoky reception as well until we arrived upstairs...
I’m sure we will return but just wanted to provide some feedback for this otherwise impressive restaurant!

Absolutely no social distancing. My chair was touching the strangers behind and next to me. Our server Jim was great. Just overcrowded and not great for a date night, couldn’t hear my husband over the noise

Ambiance was wonderful. Jim, our server was top rate. But, the best part was the amazing filet. The best filet I’ve ever had. The escargot appetizer, salad and sides (mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and brussel sprouts were delicious. If you want an amazing steak, with top-rate service, Hal’s is your place. Can’t wait to go back.

As first time diners at Hal's, my husband and I both were really impressed! From the appetizer to the dessert, every thing was absolutely delicious! Our server, Allen, was simply the best! I was slightly uncomfortable with the closeness of the tables given the current pandemic, but otherwise, no complaints. I was glad we had early reservations so we could avoid the crowd, but there were still plenty of diners for the tables to have been as close as they were. While I would dine at Hal's again, I may have to wait until the pandemic is over.

Hands down this is one of, if not the top steakhouse in Atlanta! The food, service and ambiance was spectacular! I’d I could I’d eat their filet and the lobster/crab special four times a week!

I can’t wait to go back!

I hate to say it, but this place is awesome. The reason I hate to say it is because I don’t need more people competing for tables here.

Hal’s is no secret. Everyone knows the food is great.

My favorite part is the way you are treated. From the time you drop your car to the time you get back in the car you are treated as if you are a special guest.

Obviously, I’ll be back.

We had a great dinner. That server Hakan is so sexy. If you come to Hal’s, ask for him. He will make your experience by far the best. Definitely will be coming back!

We went to Hal’s to have dinner on my birthday and from beginning to end the whole experience was exceptional . The waiter (who’s name I can’t remember 😩 but he’s from Fort Walton , FL ) provided us with outstanding customer service, you could tell that he took pride in ensuring ALL of his customers were versed on the menu and provided with exceptional, timely service. The food was amazing! I recommend Hal’s Steakhouse, thank you for hiring exceptional staff !

Holy COVID non-compliance. We were put at a table within 3 feet of 3 other tables - so close that the next table had to move slightly to make room for us. We asked to be moved to the bar, which they did accommodate. The place was packed shoulder-to-shoulder, with lots of people standing. Very few masks. Won't go back until after things normalize a bit.

Food was amazing. It’s very dark inside and they still allow smoking so that wasn’t a highlight at all. Our server was great. All in all I wasn’t disappointed.

I took my girlfriend here for our 1 year anniversary. The experience was perfect. I had a florist deliver flowers, and the hosts at Hal’s had the bouquet waiting for us at the table upon arrival. The service was outstanding and everything we ate was really delicious. I will definitely be returning for another great experience.

Took my mother here for her birthday, just the 2 of us. Key points:
*We waited quite sometime at valet parking for service.
*We had a reservation and was seated immediately.
*There was no social distancing. No hand sanitizer offered. Tables were not spaced apart and the restaurant was full. If you are stringent on pandemic rules then this is not the place to dine.
*The service was very good. Server was very knowledgeable about the specials and wine pairings.
*My mom was gifted with a dessert of choice which I thought was rather thoughtful and sincerely appreciated.
*Valet service needs some improvements.

But overall, the food was great and service was very good! I disliked the set up, no social distancing or other pandemic practices in place, and ambience of the restaurant was rather dim and a tad noisy. A try for good food in ATL but I rather other steakhouses in ATL.

My family and I had such an amazing experience at Hal’s. First recommended to us by an employee at another restaurant, we made the decision to head here to celebrate two birthday dinners in one. As expected, this place did not disappoint. At first, the menu seemed somewhat restrictive, however their specials were fantastic additions to the nightly menu. Our server, Michael, made it a highly enjoyable evening thanks to his perfection ate service, and knowledge regarding all aspects of the menu we had questions about. The food was exceptional beginning with the fried lobster tail and ending with the tiramisu and mango bread pudding. Of course, the steak was fantastic. Overall, we will likely be come back here. While it may not be priced right for weekly visits, Hal’s has certainly earned our business for at least another few visits.
