Elegant ambiance & great food

It is an elegant restaurant with very good food. My teenage grandsons love the place, especially the steak. ALL of our dishes were very good to excellent. I loved the porterhouse steak with its wonderfully seasoned crust. Very good wine list. The service was impeccable. While known for steaks we... read more

Much to my surprise, I received a phone call from Al Biernat the other day. He apologized for the way the incident (see earlier review) was handled when we were at his restaurant. He was out of town the night we were there. He assured me that his restaurant would be taken care of. He sent me a check for... More

Got here to celebrate my wife's birthday, and we had a great evening. The place is pretty crowded and probably not the most romantic setting, but for bigger groups and business it is ideal. The server was very professional, fun and not invasive. He knew when to step in and when to stay quiet. The food was top notch. I... More

Al Bernaits has a long standing history of wonderful food and service. However on a recent Sunday brunch visit the food was wonderful but our waiter was too much. He was incredibly loud and overbearing. It was very disappointing.

My son and daughter in law gave us a gift certificate to Al Bernat's for a Christmas present which we used to celebrate our 44th Anniversary recently. It was not a perfect evening. We were just given our entrees when a roach crawled across the wall next to the booth we were sitting in. The waiter noticed and quickly grabbed... More

While Al Biernat's is a very elegant restaurant, it is still fun and festive. Drinks were great! Service was impeccable. Strip steak was melt in your mouth delicious! Call ahead for reservations on the weekend.

There are many choices when it comes to "steak houses" and high end restaurants, but Al Biernat's is always at the top of my list. Beyond the excellent service, the food is perfectly prepared across the table -- appetizers, entrees, sides, and desserts. Flawless.

We are regulars, to some degree, and returned just a few days ago. Nothing has changed, still as excellent as ever. The service is perfect and the food outstanding. Excellent salad, great filet and osso bucco, with a side of rings. Also, a very good and extensive wine list. We will return soon.
