Party of eight on a surprisingly crowded Tuesday night. Quite loud and hard to hear the waitress list the specials. But service was superb, from the valet to the bartender to the tableside waitstaff. Appropriately attentive, without being intrusive. Seemed to know their stuff and enjoy their jobs, even during this busy holiday season. Food was good, not great....at least... More

Being from a small town, where dinner at a restaurant with an expected tab of $50.00 per person + is a weekend thing most of the time , I was amazed that by 7 pm there were very few tables empty and the bar was full. It appeared, from an outsider's point of view, that most of the clients were... More

We recently had the opportunity to visit this old Dallas restaurant on recommendation of the Insider at W and it was nothing short of fantastic. Let's start with the little things like a charger at the desk for my dead I phone, coat rack for our coats, and seating immediately upon arrival. From here the ambiance made us warm and... More

We went there for my 60th birthday dinner. The service, atmosphere, food were all top notch. Pricey but worth it for special occasions.

Last year we were in Dallas and my review said the sides were excellent but my porterhouse only average. We returned last night and the sides were still excellent and I had an exceptional bone in strip steak

I had high expectations going in and they didn't live up to the hype. The steak was good but I've had better. The service was just ok. It's REALLY loud in the restaurant which was a big negative. The sides were just ok. I rather go to other steak houses in Dallas. And it's not cheap by any means.

I was in town for business and was told to go here. We loved this place so much we ended up going back the next night. The food is over the top good and service was great too. The steak & seafood selections are excellent. It's pricey, but well worth it.

The restaurant is above par for any steak and seafood restaurant in the area! Al's has been around a long time, with a staff that surpasses all, incredible food...and Al, always coming around to meet and greet his guests. A phenomenal dining experience!

We made a reservation but got there 30 minutes earl. They got us a table immediately. The service was excellent, from the valet- no charge-just tips- who was nice enough to carry the cake in, find our server and even walked us to our table. The water is filtered and they have a great wine selection. The steaks were cooked... More

I love this s place!!! The staff is so professional and friendly. I have not had one dish that was not simply amazing. The prices are a little on the high end but worth every cent. I love the atmosphere. Parking maybe the only issue.
