Not Great, but not Bad

We went to this place in a group and quite a few dishes were tried out. Most of them were good, a couple were slightly below standards, but none of them were simply great or fantastic. The ambiance is decent, but again nothing great. Same with the staff.

Terrible food and poor service!!!!!

The food and service did not meet my expectations. My well done steak was red on the inside and black on the outside. There was no seasoning on the steak, not even pepper. Very disappointed. We were served a side of what tasted like frozen vegetables, the bread was very cold, and the butter was frozen.

Our server rarely checked on us and we kept having to ask for more water and beverages.

My boyfriend and I ate here with another couple and neither one of us were happy with the food or service.

The owners of this restaurant should be embarrassed for serving such awful food at any price.

Awful! Awful! Awful!

It had been awhile

I had not been to Al's in well over 15 years. It was actually quite good for a Monday night. We sat by the window and I discovered later the cozy decor the other side of the bar. The service was friendly and the food was good. The sole was plentiful, the filet mignon was tasty, the rib steak seemed... more

Huge Disappointment
July 16, 2014

Went to Al's to celebrate a friend's engagement. Restaurant was not busy so we were seated immediately. Decided to order from the Summer Special Wine and Food menu. Wine was sold out so we had to order a more expensive one from the regular wine list. If it is advertised the restaurant should keep enough in stock. The table ordered... more

Great steakhouse in my neighbourhood
July 14, 2014

It seems that people often take for granted the restaurants in their own neighbourhood. Al's is a 2 minute walk across the park and around the corner from where I live. Definitly no need to worry about having a glass of wine and driving!
A steak house is not the first place I think of when deciding on a restaurant... more

Somewhat expensive, but the steaks have always been good (after 8-10 visits, Elgin) and the service is typical.

Selection of steak, chicken, and seafood dishes served in a classic steakhouse setting with chic, contemporary decor. Certified Angus beef from Al’s own butchery is used to control the aging process. Lighter meal options and lunch menu available. Reservations recommended.

Since opening in 1967, this restaurant on lively Elgin Street has played host to premiers, prime ministers and entertainers alike. The interior is relaxing with its lovely plants, cascading water, soft lighting and elegant oil paintings. The menu is a meat-lover's delight, with seafood, poultry and selection of charcoal-broiled dishes, including steaks up to 22 ounces. A second Al's Steakhouse... more
