While I'm not one to typically write reviews of restaurants, I feel compelled to provide negative review of one of what I once considered one of the top Steakhouses in Atlanta - no more. 2-12 oz filets ordered medium rare plus and medium were delivered to table cool. Apparently, they sat for quite while before being brought to the table.... More

This is a place i used to go to all the time, by far my favorite steakhouse in Atlanta. I went there last week for a birthday dinner, and it just wasn't the same as i remember. The food was very good, i don't think you can go wrong with any choice. The service however, seems to have slipped a... More

This is by far the best steak house in Atlanta. From the wood paneled walls and cigar smoking at the bar, this is everything you want from a classic steak house. (The restaurant is not smoky!) I've been here with just 2 people to as many as 20 and the service is top notch every time. I love the oysters... More

Place was suggested by business partner. We were early and did have a wait for what seemed like staff getting ready. Bar was nice while we waited but I felt we waited a little long considering the reservation and a mostly empty dinning room. Once seated the food did not disappoint. Service was very good and portions were ample. Had... More

Galatoire's Restaurant is the best of New Orleans. Hal's on Old Ivy is the Galatoire's of Atlanta. Period. Paragraph.

We had reservations for 9 PM, but we're not seated until 9:25 PM. Apparently if you know someone there it helps to get a table - several we're sat as soon as they walked even though tables were open. There was musical entertanment - if you like lounge lizard style music - but it did not fit the atmosphere of... More

There are many very good high end steak houses in Atlanta but Hal's signature filet has withstood the test of time and remains the best.Service and lively atmosphere just add to the experience.

The food was delicious. Steaks cooked perfectly. Escargot yummy. Service was very good. But...we had a reservation and were not seated until almost 1 hour after our reservation. Just not acceptable. There are a lot of other restaurants in Atlanta with outstanding food and impeccable service that will seat you when you have a reservation. Just not worth the excessive... More
