The steaks and all the food is simply excellent and the service is excellent as well. My only complaint is that it is excessively noisy.

Not sure where to begin. There is so much good to talk about. First, this is a restaurant that is 2 full levels of cigar smoke, with bumper to bumper suits n dresses. It's loud and rambunctious, and every table is covered with "beef n booze"... Other than that, it's just a normal prime steakhouse, with excellent steaks, sides, desserts... More

The first thing that's notable about Hal's is that it's tucked into its own little niche, but still in the thick of things, with a small arc of a valet driveway right up front. Once inside, especially if you walk in from a bright day, be prepared to let your eyes adjust. Once they do, you'll find a dining room... More

High energy NYC steakhouse. The steaks are awesome and the atmosphere adds to the experience- you never know what you'll see. The waiters are all experienced and definitely add to the occasion.

Great food, ambiance and service are what you crave and Hal's delivers on all three! It had been years since my wife and I have eaten there and we are now asking what took so long? My wife ordered off of the menu and I was traditional and ordered Hal's ribeye. Our waiter was outstanding as well and help make... More

Every time I go I have to order the steak, this time I thought I'd deviate and ordered the Sea Bass-it was scrumptious but I have to admit that I am going back to the filet. The atmosphere is dark and perfect for when the boss is in town and there is a need to talk business. Great cocktails-classic martini... More

My daughter and I treated ourselves to a night out and Hal's was perfect for us. We had a couple of drinks at the bar before dinner and then we both had the best steak we have EVER toasted! Unbelievably tender and delicious! We had macaroni and cheese and we can't fault a single thing with this fabulous restaurant. The... More

The meal was delicious! Reservations were a bit difficult to come by, but the concierge at the hotel got my husband and I in no problem.

Superior drinks, appetizers, steaks, veal, and service. After 8-10 visits over the last 3-4 years, there IS NO BETTER PLACE THAN THIS!!! Be prepared to wait without a reservation. It IS worth the wait. Many thanks Hal......!!!!

Very crowded and very loud. Good food and service but very expensive. Better restaurants in Atlanta for the cost at Hals. Old nostalgic Buckhead place but I think its been way outdone. Wouldn't recommend.

Thank bobfei
