A restaurant that triumphs in taste over trend, Hal's is not the typical highbrow restaurant so often equated with food of this quality. It is a place of white table cloths, flowers, warm brick, & candlelight.

The noise level took a minute to adjust to and it didn’t help that we were sat less than arms length away from a very noisy table. Not sure why we were so close to another group when there were other tables available. The cigar smoke at the bar can be a little overwhelming especially if you’re a person who doesn’t like the smell so keep that in mind. The food was pretty good although it wasn’t a experience I would rave about. The service was great but when I’m looking for a amazing steak this wouldn’t be my first thought.

The experience was great there. The atmosphere was so lively. It was a little loud at times, but I think that’s what the place is all about. There was live music in the corner that was just loud enough to hear. The servers were awesome along with the the guys who helped clean up. I finished plate was not in the table long, which I appreciate. Everyone at the table has something different to eat and we all really enjoyed it.

very loud here but if you dont mind having an amazing meal over live music and lots of people then this is the place to be. The food was amazing and the service was second to none. Great waiter but I cannot remember his name.

I love the place but it was my first time at a table for two. Entirely too small for the plate sizes and 3-4 course meals. Increases the risk of tipped wine glasses while maneuvering items brought to the table.

Great food and great service. We had a reservation and the table was ready for us when we arrived. We love the lobster poppers (not on the menu but just ask for them).

The food is delicious, bone-in ribeye and filet both were spectacular. The included sides were ok but the other available sides, Mac and cheese and mushrooms were very good. We sat at the bar on a Saturday night, VERY loud but the live music was great. The only negative of the night is that smoking is allowed at the bar.

Asparagus was absolutely horrible. Big does not actually mean better and they need to cut the ends so I don’t end up chewing on a stalk like it’s a sugar cane. Potatoes Lyonnaise were soggy and onions were overdone to a cream. Mussels did not smell or taste fresh…they were VERY fishy. Overall, the side dishes were of poor quality. Sticking to their Escargot and Brussels in the future.

Hals never disappoints. The food is always so delicious, the service is always great and the vibe is always excellent. The mussels, oysters and carpaccio are our favorite appetizers, all of their cuts of steaks melt in your mouth, which I recommend you pair with their creamed spinach which is the best I have ever had. I have been going to Hals for serval years and every time it seems its better than the last. 10 out of 10 recommend.

The overall experience was great! When you have service that’s as good as the food it makes it all worthwhile. Will definitely return.
