George made me feel like the most beautiful bride at each fitting. He was so diligent and helpful and worked hard to make sure my dress details were all taken care of. I really valued his attention to every little thing (piece of tulle) and his expert feedback on my accessories. The overall team there is so kind and friendly. I enjoyed my experience here!

Hallak Cleaners are very responsive, that is all the positives I can give them. I was offered a deal where the preservation box for my wedding dress was free since I was going to clean my dress twice. My husband dropped it off and specifically told them where my concerns were. I even called and spoke to someone on the phone to confirm everything. I went and picked up my dress to find out the issue I had with the bottom bustle was not fixed, instead they added beads to the other bustles without even asking if that was okay. The other issue I had with my dress was a run at the bottom. The lady working there told me that if I "pressed" the dress, the dress will look good as new. I'm confused, didn't I just pay to have my dress cleaned? Did that not include having my dress pressed? For a company that is listed as being a part of the association of "Wedding Gown Specialists" they really had not issue touching my (already cleaned) wedding dress with their hands. Will NOT be coming back here for my second cleaning.

Hi Amy. Thank you for your honest review. I am a little concerned because your cleaning does include a press. I reviewed your invoice and didn't see any notes in our system about the issues mentioned in your review. If possible, I would like the opportunity to speak with you directly due to your disappointment. I hope you will be open to this. Please email donna@hallak.com or give me a call at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

I brought in a sample dress I got from another store for them to make some minor fixes to. They were very nice and knew what they were doing. It was a bit expensive but that might just be my small budget talking. I would definitely recommend them.

I wish I had read the poor reviews online about Hallak cleaners before I allowed them to clean my wedding dress before my wedding. Hallak removed the two stains after they first cleaned the dress, but they returned the dress to me with six new stains they added! I was upset about the new stains being added and after they spot cleaned the dress twice more the stains were still there but fainter. I cannot recommend their services at all and it was extremely distressing and upsetting experience. Do not use their dry cleaning services.

I understand your disappointment and frustration, which is why i reached out personally on the day you posted (and learning about these issues). This is not something that typically occurs as you can see since we have countless of positive reviews regarding our wedding services. This is no way takes away from your experience. I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me and look forward to finding some sort of resolution together. At this point, it is no longer about researching further into what exactly happened but rather making sure you are happy. Thank you again. You will be hearing from me again shortly.
