I'm generally not one to be negative, but Al Biernat's has such a good reputation that the quality of the food magnified my sense of disappointment in the experience I had. The service and ambience were pleasant. But the food was a strike out on all counts. I had the 1) wild boar appetizer and the 2) chicken piccata with 3) wild mushrooms as a side for dinner. I was disappointed by all three. The wild boar appetizer was tuff and had has lots of fat, to the point that I had a hard time even chewing it. The chicken piccata tasted more like blue cheese chicken fettuccini than chicken piccata. Very little to no lemon flavor. Blue cheese as the dominant flavor in piccata? The mushroom side was the least of my issues, but they were just bland and I found myself wishing for salt or something to make them more flavorful. A disappointment all around. I would have expected much more from a restaurant with such a great reputation.

Antonio was great. We loved the Tomahawk, au gratin potatoes, and mac and cheese. The temperature was perfect inside the restaurant.

Not at all impressed. Seated at the time of our reservation and folks who seated us were friendly. That's a plus. Downhill from there. Staff was way slow in taking our drink order. (6 p.m. and definitely not full, so no excuse!) Never asked if we wanted to order an appetizer. Waiter was unusually hyper. Not "I'm glad you're here" over-the-top. Weird hyper. Cursed twice while telling a story to us. Keep in mind I was with my 14 yo daughter. She's heard the words before, of course, but stupid for a waiter to curse in front of a child. Food was average...at best. $249 (pre-tip) for two steaks, mac n cheese (no lobster), another side, two orders of shrimp cocktail (3 per order, and they weren't even cleaned properly), one beer and two half salads. No dessert, no other alcohol. Daughter had a Shirley Temple. I don't mind paying for a nice dinner, but the steaks were overcooked, the mac n cheese was tasteless and daughter's "salad" was one tomato wedge, one slice each of fresh mozzarella and one slice of avocodo. Seriously? Ambiance was terrible! Mismatch of tables, crappy sports memorabilia, and terrible art. Floors looked like concrete that once had tile over it, but the tile was removed and contractor didn't know what to do with it after that. For my money, Neighborhood Services beats this place IN EVERY WAY. We won't be back!

First time visit for me here. I travel a lot and try to find good dining experiences in various cities and have had several good ones in Dallas. Al Biernat’s is definitely going to be a repeat experience for me. It’s excellent!

Al’s never disappoints! From pulling up to the valet to the last bite of dessert, it is all delightful. Al and Brad run a class establishment and have proven to be adept at traversing this world we live in now.
My date and I shared a steak and lobster tail and, of course, coconut cream pie. One word- YUM. Prepared as expected and tastefully presented.
Keep it up guys- you ROCk!

We always celebrate our special occasions with Al and his fine establishment! The Oak Lawn is our “go to”, but hearing good things about the North Dallas location. Either way you will not be disappointed!
