We have been eating at Al Biernats on Oak Lawn for a long time. This is the place to take clients and family when they come to town. Al always comes to visit with us when we are there. It's a great place for lunch or dinner. Always fun. See you soon.

Al Biernat's is always a fine dining experience. I have been a patron for a number of years and have never had a bad experience. The wait staff have always been both courteous and knowledgeable and the steaks and seafood cooked to perfection. I always recommend Al Biernat's to friends and family.

Too loud. Waiter has to yell to hear. Too many tables I think make it chaotic for wait staff. I would not recommend for a romantic or date night with the wife. There are better options (True Luck or Nick and Sams). For a restaurant like this, there is a service and ambiance expected. Just did not deliver. Good Chilean sea bass. Medium Steak came out medium well but they replaced. Also they accidentally spilled stuff on my wife and table, and did not comp anything (not even a coffee). I think issue is too many packed in tables

The food and service are excellent. Al's is a noisier establishment due to the fact that the place inspires energetic conversation. If you want quiet, this is not your restaurant. But, if you are looking for value and true dining experience, you are at the right spot. Kudos to Al's for all they do!

Had reservations for two month in advance and still had to wait 50 minutes. Other people came in well after us and were seated rite away. I am a leg amputee and after 30 minutes they offered me a chair in the hallway going to the restrooms which I declined. We have been going to Dallas and dinning at Al Biernat's every January for the last 7 years but sure if we will go there again.

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.

My wife and I were in town for business and heard this was one of the hot spots to hit up so, we did. Service was great to start, even offered a drink from the bar while waiting for our table without actually visiting the bar, so that was nice. Got seated after a 10 minute wait, but then service got a little wishy washy. Server came and took our drink order but then we waited for about 10 minutes and he never came back, stopped someone in management and they found our missing server very quickly. Appetizers were great, had the steak tartare and the baked goat cheese, both were fantastic. I ordered the Wagyu Filet with a 9oz lobster tail. She ordered the Ahi Tuna dish. We split a side of the wild mushrooms, cauliflower, and the whipped sweet potatoes. She had a blue cheese martini, I had a Blantons and glass of pinot noir with my steak. Everything was great, except the mushrooms, we didn't much care for those. But they took those off our bill so that was a nice gesture. I was disappointing however, in the $96 adder for the lobster tail. Never had a lobster tail adder cost more than the steak... I live on the coast of NC so maybe I am biased, but thought that was a little steep for a lobster tail. Overall, great atmosphere, great food, pretty good service in the end. Would go back again.

Its was a very busy night. We ordered bone in fillets and they were overcooked. Had to wait 20 minutes for a refire of 2 steaks and they were still not done correctly. ITS A STEAK HOUSE!!!! You would think 4 tries at a $70.00 steak they would get one of the right. Waitress was apologetic and willing to refire again . The service was very good.

I'm an Al Biernat's regular and will always recommend it as the BEST of Dallas when asked whats a good steakhouse in the area. Their service, food and ambiance is second to none. We don't always make special requests but when we do they deliver. We were there to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary and they pulled out all stops! Love the place and will always go back there when I need a steak dinner.

Brought out octopus dish with very little meat. When asked waitress promptly took back to kitchen. When she returned she said they were out of octopus and she should not have given out the plate. Very disappointed in service. At expensive restaurant we should not have to questions dish served. They did comp dessert as well as octopus dish however should never have happened in first place.

The brunch breads weren’t fresh today. This isn’t typical for Al Biernat’s. Other than that, the food was delicious.

Steve Diamond the Maitre'D was one of the best M's I have ever encountered. Engaging, generous, funny and attentive. For his service alone I'd go back. Our server was also amazing but her name escapes me.

It was New Years' Eve and the restaurant was buzzing! Decorated wonderfully with balloons and other decorations to set the mood. The food was amazing: filet and sea bass. The mushroom risotto was delicious! Wedge salad was great! Our regular waiter Forrest did a fantastic job taking care of us. He recognized our special occasion and couldn't have done a better job! If you haven't been to Al Biernats, you owe it to yourself to go! Five star all the way! Can't wait to go back!

Rushed in and out, service was fair and less Attentive. Food quality was fair , compared to Perry's, Nick and Sam, Truluck, this restaurant could not match their quality of service and food.

My wife and I are regulars. We were there just two weeks ago. Last January, we had 50 guests at this same location. New Year's dinner was actually terrible. The shrimp sauces were exceedingly spicy hot. I am convinced my steak was pre-cooked and warmed up. Sent it back because it was rare and was not not hot. My wife's chicken parm was also cold and came out 10 minutes after order was placed. We have been going to Al Biernets' for four out of 5 last New Year's. Debbi loves the caviar service. Why did it go up $50? I could care less about taking time for our table but it was not fair to also be rushed during dinner. Barry Rothschild

This was the best restaurant I have been to in years. The food was delicious and came out in about 10 minutes. Honestly thought it wouldn’t be great tasting cause of how quickly it came out but was proved wrong with the first bite. Waitress was very attentive and friendly. The noise level was high but it was NYE so I’m not sure if it’s like that every night. Will be back for sure
