Great steakhouse

Everything was perfect. Service, wine and steak. Breads and sides were excellent too. We had sirloin, filet and rib eye !! All three were excellent. The sirloin was probably the best of the three.

After several recommendations we dined at Al's. The place was packed and the service was wonderful. We started with the blackened shrimp (delicious), baked Brie cheese (divine), and tomato mozzarella salad (wonderful). We all had the filet that came with an amazing purée of mashed sweet potato and delectable lobster risotto and fried potatoes. The filet was moist, perfectly cooked,... More

The place is extremly noisy. Service is slow. Their Rissotto is not done the correct way, and its not tasty. Food is way below compared to other restaurants of this category in other major cities. I asked for a martini with Grey Goose, and they gave other cheap vodka. And all of the above mentioned, was $320.00 dlls.

Good place for business meetings. Steak was good. Lobster Risoto and Sea Bass are awesome. I highly recommend coconut cream pie in dessert. The place is high end and expensive but offers good ambience and experience.

Very nice atmosphere with great service and lovely people all around. It's noisy a bit so come here if you like the crowd. Meat was great and the side dishes were also tasty. It's pretty expensive, expect to pay at least $60 per person for a nice meal.

We went here on a Saturday night in early November - not our first time here, and certainly a restaurant that we wanted to eat at again...and again...and again. Pulling into the valet parking area, you notice all the high end cars in the lot. You know that this is someplace special. The same feeling is had when walking into... More

I had heard this was the best steakhouse in Dallas so I had very high expectations. My expectations were not quite met. We were greeted by very friendly staff and a knowledgeable friendly waiter. There is a great choice of sides. Our group of 4 had several and they were very good. I especially liked the lobster risotto. What should... More

Wow what a fun restaurant, it was our first night in Dallas and my very first visited the city. The concierge at the Ritz Carlton recommended Al Biernats, and I'm so glad he did. This is a wonderful restaurant, the decor is sports memorabilia, the food typical of a great American Steakhouse. My petit fillet was cooked to perfection, the... More
