Pros: The service was 5 star. The overall service compares to any high end restaurant. I had the crap salad for appetizer and they give you a lot of crab meat for the salad. The steaks are spot on as far as temperature, seasoning, and presentation. The cheesy mashed potatoes were very good. Cons: The atmosphere up stairs is very... More

There are clearly so many great places to eat steak when on holiday in any US city. After several recommendations from locals it came down to a choice of two restaurants and it was Hal's that won. A great choice. Quite possibly the finest tasting steak I have ever had. We also had the truffle macaroni side dish which I... More

Hal's on old Ivy continues to deliver quality service, food, and ambiance. Like an old glove, Hal's fits with servers who really "serve", terrific steaks, appetizers, and desserts, and an atmosphere reminiscent of the old New York steakhouses. Hal's is pricey, to be sure, so it's not an everyday occurrence when we visit. But it's a treat every time we... More

It was our first trip to Hals and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and service sound. It had an old school feel resulting in a comfortable ambiance. We enjoyed the magician who came to our table.

When staying at the Ritz, the concierge recommended Hal's to us and set up a reservation. We each got an 8 oz filet with mashed potatoes, we tried the side of spinach, and for dessert we got a creme brûlée as well as a bread pudding. ALL DELISH! We knew we would come back the next time we were in... More

On a Saturday night it's almost impossible to find a table here. Were were lucky to get a reservation for 20:45 The place was recommended to us by a local meat lover and our expectations were high. On arrival we had to wait for 10 minute before our table was ready. The place packed. The tables are small and fitted... More

Having a filet Mignon stand out is a rare feat, no pun intended. But some how Hal's makes this fat, juicy piece of meat dance with flavor and literally challenge you to eat it all. It has a slight char to it and just the perfect amount of spices to enhance the flavor and not detract from the greats flavor... More
