Al Biernat's - Oak Lawn
Decided to get the 1/2 lb of King Crab legs for an entree and was very disappointed. 2 skinny legs that were watery. Sides were excellent but for $40 entree was overpriced and under delivered. Rare from my past experience at Al’s
The Grilled Salmon with Spinach is very fresh. Our table also ordered Steak Salad which was delicious. Service is always excellent!
Overall great experience! We had the crab cakes, warm goat cheese salad, filet, strip, brussel sprouts, mac and cheese and cocktails. Everything was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Service was a tad slow, but not enough to take away a star. Highly recommend!
The staff is always wonderful here, making for a special, intimate experience.
Excellent although it was very loud in the restaurant
The first time we visited Al Biernats, the experience was pleasant. This second time, it was really poor. The server came to our table with a handful of dirty dishes to take our drink order, despite not having provided us drink menus. She eventually got us a drink menu and then took our drink order, which took more than 15 minutes. She then asked us if we were ready to order dinner, despite never having brought us food menus. So we finally got food menus and ordered an appetizer. The appetizer came and went while the dinner menus sat crowded on our too small table, and we never did get asked for our dinner order, so we requested the check and left. We then went and had dinner at Eddie V’s down the street, where the service was excellent.
From the moment we drove into the parking lot, then were greeted at the door, then shown to a fantastic table and finally, served great food- the experience was everything we expected.
Great food, great service. Everything you could ask for in a good dinner out.
It was the best steak, grilled perfectly. Service is top-notch. And the staff remembers you.
Great food and service!
Al Biernats NEVER disappoints. DFW favorite with the best steaks.
Our server was busy and we were not happy with his responsiveness.
Think I have said it many times before. #1 choice for drinks, meals and entertaining in town. Everybody should know it by now.
Consistently the best. Always a great experience.
It’s nice to have a reliable go-to restaurant for celebrating special occasions or just giving yourself a treat. This is Al Biernat’s for us. Never disappoints. Well prepared steaks, attentive, but not overbearing service, fun somewhat raucous atmosphere.
The food and the service were exceptional. The only downside is how loud the restaurant is.
Outstabding service, great steaks, and a complete wine list in a lively setting.
Great food, great service and excellent atmosphere.
Was a little noisy but the food is so amazing that you don’t care
Great experience. Would go back.
The hostess and staff were not friendly nor accommodating even with reservations. The wait staff was excellent. A bit pricey for decent tasting food. I’m not totally enamored with this place other than it is a place to see and be seen. One visit is enough for me.
We were visiting from California and decided to try this well known steak house . They have valet which makes it easy especially since it was a Saturday night so it was very busy at 7 pm. We had a reservation so we were greeted and sat immediately . Our waiter was attentive along with other table servers. We had great martinis and appetizers - escargot. Salads were good. Our entrees were fabulous . We had the lobster and the tomahawk . The sides were ok - not great ( mashed potatoes and corn). Overall this was a great restaurant , but it is very loud in the dining room.
Best service of any restaurant in Dallas. Only to be exceeded by the fantastic food. Everything about the place is first class. Great for intimate dinners or celebrations.
The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.
Always a great experience! Great food and service!
I frequently meet there for business lunches. The food and the service are always first class.
Excellent food and very attentive wait staff. Great for a special occasion.
Overall was great. Food wasn't as hot as it should have been and there were a few hiccups. (Missing items, mistake on order) Will definitely come again just not when its so busy. I think the busy crowd may have been the cause of the issues we had. My previous visits here were phenomenal.
We had a great brunch and awesome service. It was my first visit and we were celebrating!
Could not of been better, the service was great, from the young lady that seated us, to the valet.
Will be back!
The vegan menu is excellent! All 4 of us ordered from the vegan menu and we all loved our meals.
Excellent food and good service. It was very crowded, not much privacy, and too loud for a special occasion.
Be careful and ask always for price of the recommendation
The food was service and food was great. Value of the wine was reasonable. Dessert was also great! My only negative, but not much one, was the outside seating. We sat in an outdoor area by the valet area. It’s not terrible but it’s not nice either. Exposed electrical stuff, fumes from cars and busy area. I would eat there again after saying all of that.
Great overall dining experience. Bone-in filet and sea bass entrees were the best ever. Service exceptional. Atmosphere timeless!
Al Biernat"s is always excellent. Great food with fine service in a lovely setting. While their lunch menu is very appealing and quite diverse, I settled on a simple turkey sandwich. Even that was prepared to a very high standard. Warm, fresh ciabatta roll, great roast turkey, swiss cheese, a fresh and tasty tomato slice, lettuce and chipotle mayonnaise. Simple yet perfectly constructed. Everything on the menu is excellent. It is our favorite Dallas restaurant.
We just spent a very nice evening here to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Sean F was our outstanding waiter- we were lucky to be at one of his tables. He was professional and personable. Our dinners were great- Caesar salad, grilled salmon, augratin potatoes and asparagus, and birthday cheesecake. Delicious food with great service!
We will be back- and will ask for Sean F.
Been here several times and have yet to be let down. Nothing less than perfect every time.
