Great service great food highly recommend it. The only downside was the noise from so many people. The food choices were excellent and well presented.

Attended a business function for my first visit to Al's. The Sea Bass / Lobster Risotto combo was excellent, as were the sides and cream brûlée. Service was friendly and efficient. My only complaint would be that it is very noisy and difficult to carry out a conversation.

We've enjoyed this restaurant several times over the past 4yrs. We've enjoyed everything we've ordered! "Al's Salad" (w/shrimp & crab), Chilean Sea Bass and the Bay of Fundy Salmon are a few of our very favorites! A great overall dining experience with impeccable service, delicious menu items and a great place to "people watch"! Always a trendy, up-scale Dallas crowd!

It was Sunday and I was looking for a place to take a client and his wife for brunch. We thought the place was closed, but it turned out it as open and what a wonderful find. The food was great. We sat at a booth in the bar area and ordered every single appetizer on the menu and shared... More

In town for a concert and chose this restaurant since it was reasonably nearby. We were seated right away and the service is spot on. We did not have to wait for anyone to notice or serve us. The food is very good and they cooked my husband's steak to order. There are only two problems though they will not... More

My wife and I ate here for our wedding anniversary and I couldn't be more pleased with the level of service we received. Laura was her name and she went out of her way to make sure we were well taken care of. The food was beyond perfect and I wish I could have eaten more, but I was stuffed!... More

My wife and I brought an out of town guest here on a Tuesday night. The place was packed, but the service was generally attentive. The dining room is very noisy, making it difficult to carry on a conversation without shouting across the table. I often run into this issue in what are supposed to be upscale Dallas restaurants, though,... More

We just had our executive team here for Christmas dinner and it was amazing. From the appetizers, the sides, the steaks and dessert was truly amazing. The staff and the manager James is also wonderful! Thank you James for responding to all my 1000 emails! They made our event so memorable!

We were so looking forward to a nice relaxing evening at one of the better restaurants in Dallas, it didn't happen. Our first clue should have been when we say two party buses out front. The place was packed on a Friday night, which is ok, except the tables were too close together, us and the wait staff were having... More
