Call ahead for the Lobster Bisque...

They kept telling me about the lobster bisque, and I though it was a little silly for some soup. Then I tried it. WOW. All I can say is you have to try it. I'm not sure if it is on the menu, so you might have to call ahead to order it. The steak was incredible, too, as was... read more

Top quality steaks, excellent service, and a winning wine list make this an excellent choice for a business dinner. One of the best meals I've had in Dallas. Highly recommended.

Amazing dinner date spot to celebrate Valentine's Day. The ambiance, decor, service, entres and desserts were amazing. What a special place to spend time celebrating with the one you love. You can plan on spending $150-250 on dinner for two ... But oh is it worth it. Our mouths were tingling with the flavors from Als Salad, Chilean Seabass on... More

Had a business dinner here food and service were excellent, but as the restaurant got more crowded the noise level rose. At the end of the dinner it was so loud, I couldn't wait to leave.

One of the best steaks I have ever had. Dry aged NY strip. Prepared rare. Skillet potatoes and Sautéed onions. Fantastic!

We headed out to Oak Lawn for our 14th anniversary and made reservations at Al Biernat's. The staff was awesome, very polite and helpful. I would consider listening to the specials while looking over the as the prices are a bit lower for the specials. I ordered the Wagyu ribeye special and it was huge, cooked perfectly, very flavorful!

If you're in Dallas and you want to go to an upscale steak restaurant, go to this one. I had the best time! The service is excellent, as are the food and wine. Everything cooked to perfection. I would definitely go back!

High end steakhouse, high end prices, expected better steaks. When the steak is $50 & up I expect exceptional. Good service, good atmosphere, good food.

I have visted Al Biernat's many times and the food is delicious, the waitstaff is prompt and polite, and I have yet to have an order messed up. However, I would give this restaurant a 4.5 because it is so loud in there. At a table for 7, we could barely communicate without having to repeat everything or play telephone,... More

Loved Al Biernat's... atmosphere and food were exceptional. The chilean sea bass with lobster risotto was heavenly as was my husband's steak.
