I was very excited to get to dine here the other night. I was told good things about this place from my brother, so I had to go. Upon arrival, I was able to get a seat immediately. The staff and servers were very nice and went out of their way to make it a good night. We ordered drinks and two of the most expensive steaks and both of them came out wrong. The drinks were fixed and the steaks were undercooked by a lot, which made the steaks very hard to cut into and tough to eat. It was difficult to see how undercooked they were at the restaurant due to it being very dark inside and no lighting to help. I only found out that my medium to medium rare steak was very very rare. Fully red on the inside and wasn’t darkened even a little bit. I was very disappointed to have spent my night and quite a bit of money on food I couldn’t eat because it wasn’t cooked to the correct specifications. Due to this, I will not be in attendance to this restaurant again.

We have eaten at Al Beirnets Oak Lawn location many times and it’s always superb. Al always comes and greets us, having a great conversation about a mutual friend. We have taken many people here and it’s always the same response. The best!

Been here twice now. I would give 6 stars if I could. Complimentary valet. The several different types of complimentary bread they serve is unparalleled. Their prime rib is absolutely the best I have ever had. Service is considerate, fast and on point. And they hooked me up with some delicious free key lime pie for my birthday. The first time I ate here Apple CEO Tim Cook was dining two tables down. If it’s good enough for him its good enough for me

Came in to meet a friend for the Cowboys/ Giants game on Sunday. I am a huge LSU fan and my buddy wanted to have dinner at Al’s on Saturday evening. LSU playing Texas mind you. When we arrived we sat in the bar area for few to watch some of the game. The hostess noticed and made arrangements for us to have a booth in the bar area so I could watch my Tigers. We beat Texas BTW 😊

This was my first time at Al's at the recommendation of a new friend saying it was the best restaurant in Dallas. After eating there, I tend to agree...Al's was Excellent in every way! There service was great, the drinks were great and my filet was excellent - cooked perfectly medium rare! I will definitely go back to Al's next time I'm in Dallas!

Cowboy Cut Ribeye was delicious accompanied with peppercorn sauce and sweet potato puree and a delicious Bordeaux BTG, would recommend it as well as Cold Water Lobster Tail, Lobster Risotto and Brussels, all wonderful. Paired 20yr Tawny with Pecan Pie for dessert and loved it. Service was more than accomodating.

Service was confusing.. we were brought food menus when we sat and first time we were visited by our server, he asked if we had decided on anything. We asked for drink menus and he brought us the wine menu but no cocktail menu. Finally another server brought us a cocktail menu and then became our defacto server though we hardly saw him either. The original guy just wandered through the restaurant seemingly clueless and not visiting us. Went in fully expecting to spend $$$ on a great experience. Food was reasonable, not fantastic for the price but you’d expect to have some sort of service for that kind of experience. Way over rated... there are much better steak houses in Dallas, where you can get the type of service for the money you are spending. Food was much better than the service.

We really enjoyed our experience everything was very timely our waiters Joe and Forest where Witty and funny and very helpful service was great our food made it on time. My only complaint was my seating which was inside and it was very loud in the area I was sitting and couldn’t really have a conversation without yelling. I brought this to the attention of the hostess and asked her if she could move us to the patio and she graciously accommodated my request and the rest of the night was great we could hear eat drink and enjoy one another so thank you again for having such of A professional staff. Look forward to visiting again. Mr. Hawkins

We have eaten at the restaurant maybe six times and the steaks weren’t cooked properly this time. It could have been an off night for the cook. Overall it was still a good experience.

1 out of 4 of us had steak. The filet was perfect. The others had salmon,boiled shrimp, and pasta with chicken. All were excellent. Potatoes au gratin, sautéed spinach were great as sides and chocolate cake with chocolate chip Ice cream for dessert was the perfect ending.
Service was timely and friendly and the cocktails and wine were excellent.
Valet parking could not have been better. We’re looking forward to going back soon.

Visited last night to try the Restaurant Week Menu. It was super packed and the main dinning room had an essence of the chef's best. Our server, Kim, was the best!!! Her personality was refreshing and energy was so not expected. She kept a smile on out faces right up to the time we stood from the table She suggested the Watermelon Basil and Berry Martinis. Great ideaOur 3 course meal (which I "thought" wouldn't be enough for me) was quite fulfilling. No photos of 1st course BUT, the Crab I guess it was alright That salmon plate tho, let me tell you... It melted on my palette and made me feel all warm and cozy inside as Kim witnessed when I touched my chest and rolled my eyes I had to taste the dessert, but ended up having to take it to go. Great date nite to start an amazing weekend.

We have been to Al Biernat's many times over the years and this was, by far, the worst experience we have had. The service was really the most disappointing. We were there with another couple and, first of all, we didn't get water or our drinks for some time. Our water was not filled regularly as well. The server could have worked at any chain restaurant, but not Al Biernat's, where you go for quality service and an extremely knowledgeable wait staff. The food was good, but not worth the poor service. I'm hoping to hear things have changed for the better and then we'll come back and try it again.

I/we haven't been here in 14 years, but we couldn't figure out why, we'll definitely will be coming back sooner rather than later. Went for Restaurant Week, however, none of us was overly excited about what was on that menu, so we ordered off the regular menu and we were in for a treat. The crab corn chowder was OK, I've had better at other restaurants and on the east coast. But my filet Oscar was pretty darn delicious. At first it was under cooked......I sent it back and it came out absolutely perfect. Also my wife (and our friend) had the sea bass and she and our friend said it was the best they've had in the metroplex. And I'd have to agree. The fish was great and so was the lobster risotto that comes with it. Mattie (Maddy?) our server was excellent and we picked out the perfect wine. If I have any little nit-pick, and I know this makes me sound like some old 'get off my lawn' guy, but the website says the attire is business casual and there is a sign just inside the door that says elegant casual, however I saw several patrons there with flip-flops, shorts, and t-shirts (although most people were appropriately dressed). I know they're trying to serve a diverse crowd but when I drop several hundred dollars for a meal at a classy place like that I like to see places uphold their standards.
