Always got very poor service, put in worst place to sit. If you are not a big spender or celebrity you will treated poorly.. Very expensive. Good food but you pay the price.

Al Biernat's is a wonderful restaurant. If it is your first visit, then you need to know that the entrance is behind the restaurant, as is the valet. I'm giving this four stars rather than five because my calamari looked a little anemic and I prefer mine a little more golden. The crab cakes were delicious. My "steak frites" order... More

Went to Al Biernat's last night for my anniversary and was very impressed. I've been there many times and I'm continued to be blown away. Michael was our server and was extremely personable and very knowledgeable. We certainly did not just feel like another table. The GM was just as welcoming and genuinely kind. Prime rib special was the best... More

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
