    Brought my team to Hal's for dinner in the lounge. The bone in Filets were outstanding and the service provided by Skyler and Natasha was 10/10. They remembered all of our names and had great dispositions. Hal's never disappoints.

    Our party of five were seated in a quiet area, as requested. The serve was truly patient with us as we renewed near ancient friendships before placing a series of orders over courses. The appetizers, sides and desserts were so compelling we ordered several of each to share, sharing too our enjoyment of the flavors. Two of the guests were recognized and fine French chef. They we both very complimentary of the quality of ingredients, seasonings, and preparations, all of which came as a delightful surprise to me, as the host, as these chefs can be quite critical. Altogether all of us agreed it was a most memorable dinner, and that we would all recommend Hal's to friends and family and looked forward to dining there again often.

    Great service. The best ribeye I have had in a looong time! Its is VERY loud and smokey so the environment may not be for everyone. We had a great time celebrating a friends birthday. The sides were all excellent and they are mostly shareable portions (only the mashed potatoes were served in a small portion). The drinks were also very good. Our waiter was attentive and funny and knew the menu very well. Sneakers and jeans could be seen on many guests so the dress code is not that strict but one person in our party wore a hat and was asked to remove it. Most of the crowd seemed older and there was a nice mixture of guests culturally.

    Hal's is a tradition and staple for "Baby Boomers" and "Gen X" generations. It is ATL's quintessential high priced "meat/meet" market for those generations. Food is always good as is professional service. It is full of "players" and "wanna be" players; nothing subtle here. If you're in that kind of dining/drinking mood then Hal's is a place for you. Personally "The Club" at CHOPS (for members only) is of similar genre, but more sophisticated.

    This place Is great, yet crowded of course. Valet Parking but arrive a bit early cause you may have a small line for parking. Seating was fast but upstairs. The atmosphere Is very upbeat. Dinner date night: Lamb chops with mash potatoes and for the Mrs.. Lightly fried salmon with Asparagus was delicious. Definitely will return.

    The space was tight. A lot of bumping into servers etc but bc everyone is good spirited, it was no big deal. I can appreciate the “Cheers” feel I get with the piano player/magician. The food was delicious. My waiter was very accommodating and read the room well. He saw I was unhappy with sub and made it work in my favor. The oysters, 20 oz sirloin, and lobster Mac were so good. The chicken was very moist and tender. The desert platter was fun and tasty. The chef came to our table to rectify an issue that left the birthday girl more than happy. We will b going back for my birthday.

    We enjoyed it! I wish we had been seated inside instead of on the glassed in patio, because I like the feel inside more. However, it was great to be on the second floor away from the smoking section. The food and wine are wonderful, just be prepared that it's going to be an expensive night!

    Hal’s is an Atlanta staple. Friday nights are noisy and full, but the food and the ambience is always good. For example, the waiter forgot to fill the water for a while, but at the same time when we asked them to warm our babies food, they even ended up completing the food for the baby! Who does that? That is so awesome. I know it was busy so they did miss out on their classic things like telling us about the dessert options and specials but overall they saw how excited we were to be there and we had a really great experience. I wouldn’t trade it and will be coming back to Hal’s very soon. Overall strongly recommend! Four-star is only because it was a little noisy, but honestly excellent experience

    Steaks were perfect and the 'special' lobster appetizer tasted like heaven. Good pour on the Old Fashioned. The waiter, Ross, worked politely without being intrusive and although it was crowded (on a Wednesday?) the food came quickly. It was like the waiter had three back up people to make sure we were taken care of and served professionally. I've paid much more for much less in terms of quality of food and of service.

    Our table was tucked away in a corner but behind a party of 9. The table was so close the girl in the table beside us that when she would flick her hair it would brush our table. She had her to go bag on the ground beside her and our waiter stepped on her bag just trying to bring my drink refill. Honestly it was not worth the money we spent. The food was good but not better than our normal steak place.

    I had the ribeye, $78, cream spinach $11, very small bowl very small, it was just okay, the steak was really good but undercooked half of it was medium the other half was medium rare, I ate the half that was cooked medium and took the rest home instead of having them re-cook it, but it was very good it was like butter just melted in my mouth, very small and tight in there not a whole lot of room to move around, a little too close for me but the steak was very good, my sister had roasted chicken and it was very good, very tender and my friend she had muscles and some other stuff but she really enjoyed hers, overall the food was good just not above and beyond good, but it was good I will probably go back, but be prepared for a very small tight space

    The valet was pretty fast at retrieving your car. The food was delicious, from the fried lobster bites to the calamari to the oysters. They have a wine, beer, liquor and champagne list but no mixed drink menu. That's not a problem, but if you don't know a drink off the top of your head, it may be difficult to order something good. They did recommend basics though - lemon drop and cosmopolitan. Our server was outstanding. It was super dark, smoky downstairs, and VERY LOUD. I didn't expect for an upscale restaurant to be that loud and it caught me off guard. It was packed as well; like they shoved one too many tables in the areas it seemed congested. The vibe was more like a bar/lounge.

    Really great place to eat. The host was rude, and the bartender downstairs makes horrible drinks. We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation, and was instructed to wait at the bar until sitting started at 5pm. However the downstairs area is a smokers section, which I did not know before making reservations. I had to endure someone puffing cigar smoke into my face and the nostrils of my infant. The waiter was perfect he knew his ‘stuff’ and provided excellent fine dining service.
