If you love a lively place with excellent service and delicious culinary dishes, this is it! This is one of our favorite spots in Dallas. We have been here four times in the last two months. Sometimes for big celebrations like birthdays or holidays and sometimes just because we love it. The wine selection is outstanding (if you don't see... More

I took my partner here for his 24th birthday Jan. 1st. There was free valet parking. It was a bit crowded and tables were crammed, but besides that it was superb! The waiter was so nice and knowledgeable. I told him I wanted a sweet red wine and my partner wanted a white wine. He said, "I've got just the... More

From the experience in the bar, waiting for our table through the dinner, our experience was absolutely wonderful. The service was attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. The food was exceptional. The server offered oysters on the half shell as one of the appetizer specials and they were wonderful! My husband ordered the calf liver and I had the Fundy Bay Salmon....

Al Biernat's is one of the great "streak houses" of Dallas: beautiful, loud, electric and crowded, the rooms hum with energy and fun. Service is excellent, wait staff well trained and understand that you are there to have good time over a great meal. Osso Buco was sublime even to a food snob from Louisiana (and we are the worst).... More

The food was great and the people watching may have even been better! The cars and people that roll into this place are unreal! If you want a great steak in Texas this is a good place to head to.

Just popped in for Happy Hour with my wife on way to our hotel. Bar was full, but they seated us quickly in the bar area. Service was attentive and totally outstanding. Happy hour apptizers were generous and superb. Our waiter was quick enough to let us know Happy Hour was coming to a close and allowed us to order... More

Impeccable service and great food. Our favorite in the Oak Lawn area. Great filets and ribeye cooked to order. Onion rings are perfect. The house salad is great, and can be shared. We always return.

I eat here a lot! The tenderloin steak with foie gras is amazing. My favorite is Al's salad with a cup of crab and corn chowder. To die for!

We were glad to get a 10:30 pm dinner reservation to enjoy our anniversary. It's not a romantic restaurant, at least not on a Saturday. It was loud, with plenty of classy dressed people, celebrating birthdays and the holidays which we didn't mind at all. The food was excellent! Definitely worth the expense. We ordered broccoli, sauteed mushrooms, and lobster... More
