We had a colorful, attentive awesome waiter who made a point to add character to the experience. Loved him. The steaks were all universally enjoyed by our table of 5. Nice job! Mine was a bit saltier than I prefer, but that is typical for me so not a reflection on the restaurant. The desserts, however, were just ok. The... More

We went this past weekend for a family celebration for members finishing graduate school and my wife's birthday. I've had several friends give high praises for Hal's, so we had high expectations. Hal's didn't disappoint. The restaurant was quite cool. They had live music on the first level of the building with a guy playing a piano and singing. The... More

Great martinis, wine, and steak. Great service. Had a team dinner of 15 people. Not the easiest party for a good restaurant experience. We had a great waiter, food was delivered on time and and was great.

Though a bit dark and noisy - the atmosphere was that of a NY high end Steak establishment. So I felt right at home. The mater de's and waite staff were professional, atractive and very accommodating ! We were there for a business meeting and they sat us in a quiet corner. The waiter was unobtrusive yet very attentive. The... More

Great place for a drink and a cigar - inside! Yes, inside out of the elements. Then a great steak afterwards...food, drinks and a great place to mingle! Try it, you'll love it!

By far one of the best steaks in Atlanta. Seafood is a average but its a steakhouse so this should be expeced. The noise level is a little high and the parking situation is bad. This being said the food makes up for the minor negative points. We will definatly be back.

Hal's on Old Ivy in Atlanta lived up to its promise of great food. My filet was PERFECT (medium rare) and the sides I chose to accompany were delicious- grilled asparagus, white truffle mac & cheese. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and well versed with the menu and met all of our requests- some a little demanding. A fantastic dirty... More

The food was very good. The restaurant is extremely noisy. I went durning the week and was seated promptly. My husband ordered Filet Oscar. I couldn't believe when the bill came that they charged extra for the sauce, asparagus and crab. I think that the dish was misrepresented on the menu. It was like charging separately for the chocolate sauce,... More
