We showed up for dinner despite current COVID-19 concerns for a birthday. Party of two, safe as can be. I was pleasantly surprised to see the precautions they’ve taken (paper recyclable menus, hand sanitizer, great social distance of the staff and customers).

Now, the food. As a first time diner, we were comparing this experience to our favorite Dallas steakhouses: Fearing’s, Bob’s, Double Eagle. The steak was right on par but with a nice elevated flavor (I don’t know what seasoning they used, but man, I’d like to get me some of that). We had calamari - my boyfriend gets calamari quite literally everywhere and said it was probably some of the best he’s at period, not just in Dallas. The sides were excellent too. Only thing lacking in comparison was the bread selection to start the meal. It’s served cold, on purpose, with some fantastic salted butter. Comparing that to one of Bob’s giant warm rolls is not the right thing to do here. The french bread and sourdough were fantastic.

Let’s get to the best part. This cheesecake. Dear lord. I travel to New York frequently for business and I haven’t been able to find cheesecake this great anywhere else. I suppose that’s why they fly it in. The texture and flavor are in a league of their own.

Service was a little slow, but that’s part of them allowing you to enjoy your meal. I really don’t understand the negative comments in here, because they do just fine. You shouldn’t want to rush to get out of this place anyway. Ambiance is excellent. Wine selection. Fantastic.

We look forward to dining here again once it’s safe to be out and about. For now, I’m seriously hoping they do takeout because if you’re needing a steak and every single grocery store in a 50 mile radius has sold out, this is the place to go.

Well done.

This is our second trip to Al Biernat's North. This service was outstanding both times. Our waiter (Edwin) and waitress (Bonnie) were amazing. Very attentive and knowledgable. The cocktails and appetizers were very tasty and satisfying. I ordered the Sea Bass which was outstanding both times. My husband ordered the 8 oz. Filet both times and the second go-round was not as good as the first. All the sides were outstanding and highly recommend the brussel sprouts. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and Bonnie made the occasion special. Thank you for special memories and a wonderful meal.

Mr. Biernat has done it again in North Dallas. Like Oak Lawn, there is not a better place to dine than Biernat's, for great service and great food.....all the time!!! I commend the consistent excellence that is their hallmark, and which is unusual to find these days. If you simply want the best food in town with a wide range of food choices, a great wine list and 5 star service, at a fair price, do not pass up Biernats!!!

Shrimp and Scallops were overcooked.
Chilean Sea Bass plate poor presentation....all white? Overall flavorless
Asparagus cooked well, no seasoning/flavor
Brussel Sprouts significantly Under cooked. Hard,
New York Cheesecake gritty not smooth. Flavorless
Overall very poor for the exorbitant prices.
Very Very Loud. Certainly not a place to have a conversation or a romantic evening.
Will not return or recommend.

We go there for date night or special occasions. We love our server Rafael. They are so quick to accommodate special requests or alternatives to the menu. Fun to sit in a booth in the bR for people watching. If you want it quieter, then the dining room or booth in dining room should be requested. Great happy hour, too. Only valet parking is offered, so we usually do one of the ride shares. Enjoy!

Outstanding service (Mark was our waiter); waiter was very attentive but not overly so. He seemed to appear just at the right moment, was helpful when asked but not intrusive. Quickly gathered more information when requested.
Food was generally outstanding: tuna appetizer, Al's salad, steak, and the best halibut we have enjoyed. The coconut cream pie was not a slam dunk. Overall great experience, highly recommended, but extremely pricey if you are on a budget.

Disappointing experience. After booking a table a week prior, we were taken upstairs to a small room behind the bar (not the upstairs dining room). Our servers appeared to be the the bartenders, and we received typical bar service (no wine menu, no dinner recommendations). Tempura prawn appetizer and salad were mediocre, both soggy, but steaks were not bad. On our way out, I asked the hostess why we weren’t offered a regular table. She rolled her eyes dismissively and said “if you wanted to be in the dining room you should have said something”. There are too many great restaurants in Dallas, will not make the mistake of booking here again.

What a great evening. Part Valentine’s, part Birthday and we had a great time. The arugula salad was fantastic-but way too big not to share. The Caesar dressing was authentic and fishy. The steak tartar and quail egg is better than you’ll find anywhere else. The steaks were fantastic and cooked perfectly-medium rare. One person got the calves liver and loved it! The Brussels and steak fries were awesome sides and more than enough for 4 to share. Bonnie took great care of us.

I thought this place would be a nice place for a romantic dinner. But the people to the right of my table were literally yelling at one another, the people to the left of my table were also yelling at one another. My waitress, was more focused on sharing a glass of red wine with a group of men then serving me and my girlfriend drinks, refills, food, or a check. She would continuously disappear for 15 minutes at a time. My night was littered with “what did you say” or “oh my gosh it’s loud in here”, And to top it off my waitress could not figure out to work a simple debt card. She brought it back saying it wouldn’t work, which is simply the most embarrassing thing on a valentines date. But instead of working on the problem she simply wouldn’t try anything else. She continually kept swiping the card instead of using the chip. I usually love Dallas dining but this was truly the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant.

They sat our server with fare too many tables at once. She couldn’t serve everyone effectively. We also waited a long time to get our food. If this had been my first visit it would be my last. Noise level was insane. You couldn’t hear across a 4 top table. Disappointed at best. I eat out most weekends and always book open. This ranks as one of those sorry I spent the money experiences. Manager never walked through to check tables or on the servers.

Went here for Valentines dinner. Food was great, server was a little out there. He needed to be a little more refined. I wanted the sides to go and this guy scraped the crumbs from the table into my leftovers.
He wasn’t what I expected from one of the best steak places in Dallas. Also, didn’t explain that the surf and turf the lobster was some mash up of break crumbs and fishy sauce. Would have been nice to know had he explained it.

We went here for Valentine’s Day dinner. Service was poor. I asked for butter 3 times before getting some. Our steaks arrived and we asked for bernaise sauce for our steak. The sauce arrived after we finished eating our meal!! Our drinks sat empty! We will not be returning to this restuarant. Choose Perry’s or Chanberlains for better experience.

Service was fine initially but a little slow towards the end, which might be expected on Valentines day but for the price not very impressive. The food was good but we have had better at other places for less. (Steak wise Knife is a better bet, Hudson House has better seafood, etc.) Overall I just expected more from Al Biernat’s reputation.

Al Biernats never disappoints. This was our first visit to Al Biernats North and we were pleased with our visit. The ambience was set perfectly. The noise level was not a factor. Our waiter, Jeff, was great. He was very friendly, charismatic, and well-versed in the menu. He made great suggestions for me and my wife. The food was ready in record time and came out perfect to our expectations. We will definitely be recommending Al Biernats North to friends and family. The hardest choice for next time is deciding which location to visit.
