For such a pricey dining establishment, our party was disappointed by the speed at which we were pushed through our (albeit delicious!) meal. Before we had even finished our salads, the steaks were on the table. Plates were cleared before everyone had finished eating. Fine dining establishments rarely present this type of rushed service, and we were very disappointed. While... More

We decided to go for steak at about 7:30pm so I called Al Biernat’s and they said they had an opening at 8pm. We valeted the car which was very quick and the only real option. We walked in and asked to wait just a couple of minutes. We were actually seated within a couple of minutes. We were seated... More

Go to Al's for great food and great service and you'll never be disappointed. Their steaks are very good and always cooked properly to temperature. I like mine medium, not medium-rare (which often comes out rare) and it comes out medium. A small thing perhaps, but I enjoy precision when I order a steak that good. The menu is not... More

We had a business dinner for a total of five guests. I usually avoid steak houses in the US as I have been usually disappointed with the way the meat is grilled. I find that they are often burned on the outside and raw inside and the meat doesn't taste as good as it should. This time, advised by one... More

Restaurant was great. Service, food and wine list are second to none. Little pricey but well worth it. Had the filet, smashed potatoes for dinner and a fantastic cream pie.

Second time to eat here and really loved it. I find the steaks to be really tender and come out exactly as ordered. The sides are big enough to share, which I like as well. Service was not as good as the first time - waiter had several tables - but the person who fills the water glasses, runs food,... More

Al Biernat's is awesome. I highly recommend. Great wine selection and like most places don't jack the price 4 or 5 times.

Had dinner last night with my husband. I like the dark ambience inside the restaurant, very elegant and romantic. Our dinner experience was very good as has been in other visits before. This time I ordered a Caesar Salad which came with a very distinctive herb flavor in the dressing which did not belong (I am pretty sure it was... More

Had not been there in 10 years, thought we'd try it again. Oysters were past prime, salad was o.k., prime rib was fatty with hard fat running through it, filet mignon was tough with hard fat running through it. Sides were boring. Restaurant was also crazy noisy. Service was excellent and they comped the entrees which we appreciated. We won't... More
