Our waiter was Glenn and he was amazing!!! He had tons of character; he was very prompt with our service and made our experience very enjoyable! The food was amazing. My steak was perfection and I was very happy the restaurant had au jou. I thoroughly enjoyed my lobster as well; it was super tender and very delicious. My mother had the short rib and she absolutely loved it! My dad had the bone in filet and he ate every speck on his plate. We definitely had a great experience. I do believe the ambiance could have been a little more upscale and more room in between tables... but the food and service overshadowed this by far

The food reviews were spot on. I had sea bass while my date had the boar chops. Both were very good. The service was excellent without complaint. If you are looking for romantic ambiance, this is not the place. It was extremely crowd. Fine dining without a romantic setting was slightly disappointing. Would I return, absolutely. I would probably go during the week instead of the day after Valentine’s Day.

Lived up to the hype. Filet was amazing. Cooked perfectly. Presentation was boring but taste made up for it. We thought it was over priced by about 10%. But with their reputation they can do that. Service was good but didn’t care for our seat which was in the front of the restaurant next to the door. Would repeat.

Ordered half and half calamari which was great with a little kick to it. It was nice to. E able to try both. Chilean sea bass could use a bit more flavor, but texture was amazing. My husband ordered the pork chops, we each took one bite of one and they were amazing! Only problem is that we decided to take them home and when they packed up our food they only packed one! What a waste, that one bite was great though.

Excellent service. Tables are very close, so it feels like you are dining with the person at the table next to you. Salad, soup, and side dishes were outstanding. My steak (16oz. NY Strip) would have been good for $20 at Outback, but it was just mediocre for $60 prime at Al Biernat’s. Very dry and no flavor. “I’ve had better” describes it best.

Our first experience at Al Biernat’s was divine! Except our waiter Chris, didn’t mention all of the cuisine features for that day, as he did with other people that he served. My husband and I quickly noticed it.

I enjoyed a seamless Valentine’s Day dinner at Al Biernat’s. Everything from valet, to service, to the food was excellent. I will be visiting again.

Sent back a $65 bone-in filet after eating 3 bites as it was cold and tough. I was not offered a new steak nor did I receive a reheated steak and I was charged in full. All the restaurant offered was a free dessert—VERY disappointing!

It was Valentines Day. My Seabass was greasy and over done. Bread was not fresh. Hubby Filet was not great!
Not a great start to our Val Day!!!

The service was very professional, yet friendly. The food was amazing but pricy—$280 for 2 with no alcohol. The only real down side that I felt was it was extremely loud and it wasn’t the music alone.

$640 evening with two couples. Tito was a perfect waiter. Drinks were weak, went to wine. Petite filet was smallest had anywhere (al Biernat before, Maguire’s a lot, Ruth Chris places) possibly at best 3” in circumference and well done... two of us asked for rare or medium, both dry and gray...and repeat for $50 very very small. Oak Lawn location is off our list.

It was almost a perfect dining experience. The service, food selection options, and food preparation were all pleasing. Tasty array of dessert options as well. Our bottle of wine which we shared at the table was exceptional. A single glass of house white ordered later in the meal did not match the high standards set by everything that preceded it. However, our waiter was solicitous and quickly replaced it. Will definitely return to this fine restaurant.

The customer service is what brings me back to this place. The food is outstanding and the coconut cream pie is truly worth every bite of that massive slice!
