Let me start by saying it was a busy evening where staff may not have been able to keep up with demand; however, there are a few things that should be standard in any restaurant - basics of service - and this was lacking. First,- we ordered both the charcuterie and cheese plates to start. When they were placed at... More

Lobster mac and cheese.... Amazed!!! My tastebuds crave this almost weekly. Excellent service. The music was perfect. Great spot. Sad about lunch availability but I can live without it.

I was fortunate to get an invitation to this restaurant and to my surprise, the food was tremendous and the service was excellent. Definitely a place to take someone you want to take out for dinner.

The food was great you have to order a few plates as it as a tapas style restaurant. The service is really good and if you let him to the choices you can't go wrong. You should really try it

The Alex has never disappointed us! My husband and I have returned numerous times for a special night out full of flavour! Our favourites include the short rib, charcuterie board and whatever new meat dish is offered! The servers know their product and we have never been steered wrong when wanting suggestions of wine or dishes! Expect to spend some... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times and have never been disappointed. Most recent visit was with friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. The menu is all small plate, tapas style, and allows you to sample a wide variety of dishes. We started with the charcuterie and cheese board - nice selection of quality meats and cheeses. Best blue... More

One of the best meals we've had in Burlington! Besides the friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming service, the food was flavourful, thoughtfully presented and featured plenty of creative twists and turns on some classic combinations. Seared Flatiron Steak with Pomme Puree? Fish Tacos? Shrimp and Lobster Mac' n Cheese? Really? It doesn't get much more simple than that, but the guys... More

Although advertised as "closed" online and on their website, my boyfriend and I strolled down the street on our way to Eatalia, when we noticed The Alex was open. There was only one other couple inside, but we are already fans of Rapscallion and Two Black Sheep, so we felt we had to give it a try. It took a... More

This was truly a great meal! My husband and I went with another couple & we ordered a few plates & shared (love the tapas idea). We tried mango salad with shrimp, crab cakes (amazing sauce!), flank steak, fish tacos, calamari, lamb, beef short rib, & orange brulee (couldn't really taste the orange), & their take on the Twix bar...

had the occasion to have a lunch engagement at this delightful restaurant. Was pleasantly surprised initially by having a slight difficulty locating the restaurant, mainly because of the size of the front. Then I had difficulty gaining entrance because what would have normally been the front door was not. Had I paid attention initially I would have seen the small... More
