Hal's - Buckhead

$50 and over
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.

Food was great, escargot was way to much garlic and butter and my filet was a little dry but everything else was on point. Service was fantastic the ambiance though is pretty loud, hot and very outdated with green carpet, lol. Doesn’t have anything to do with food and service just for a special occasion i think I would go somewhere a little more updated and modern and less crowded. They have tables very close so it’s hard to have a more intimate dinner but again, great for just a girls night!

Hal’s is always a wonderful dining experience, the food is amazing, and the service is outstanding! Our server, Ellis, made sure to recommend different items on the menu, and for the member in our party who has never dined with them before, it made it very easy to find something they would enjoy!

Amazing service and food; especially appetizer Lobster Labeaux and then filet for main course. We thought the 1st floor was a little dark. Also noise level along with music made it tough to have conversations.

The over all experience was awesome. The staff was very pleasant, the veal and steak was like butter in our mouths, and the atmosphere was nice. We will return soon.

Waited 20 minutes after reservation time to be seated. Host staff dismissive, service was inattentive, forgetful, and extremely delayed. I am very disappointed.

My Wife and I travel to Atlanta for a Hal’s experience as often as possible!!

We enjoy a nice drink at the bar. We enjoy moving to a high top table near the bar, when available, for dinner.

Food never disappoints.

The Best Date Night Restaurant we know of.

This is my second time dining at this restaurant and it was enjoyable. The only issue that I had was the size of the portions of the food. Other than that the service was great and the food was tasteful. I definitely will return.

We were led to a dirty table with an impatient waiter but after advising the dirty table we were led to a fresh table to a quieter section and more pleasant waiter.

You don’t go to Hal’s for fancy decor or a quiet conversation. You go there for fantastic food and overflowing drinks. And a great value.

Great food and atmosphere! Little on the louder side due to the space being somewhat compact but if that doesn’t bother you I would certainly recommend!

It was a fair well dinner for a friend moving to FL. This was our first time going that all the food that came to the table had to be sent back because it was so salty and I love salt but just had too much.
