Nice environment, top notch service and an awsome wine list. Try the salads and the appetizers. You see the clean kitchen from everywhere.

OK, J Alex's serves good food. Not great, but consistently good. It's pricey for what you get. OK so what? So this, when the price meets quality and quantity there had better be some reality. A glass of wine for 8 bucks needs to be generous not skimpy. A minimum of 4 oz. not 3. I've eaten is some decent... More

I think the average family can go into this venue and have a decent meal is it going to be a great meal probably not are you going to be full when you leave yes but you're going to have to get over the stinky carpet and the noise level and the oversalted and overpriced food. This used to be... More

two chopped salad appetizers ordered. one came missing the dressing. our entrees of very salty prime ribs came while we were half-way through our salads. we asked to please keep them warm while we finish our salads, and were greeted with an annoyed look from the "runner". offered (by our server), we accepted two raw horseradish servings, one came creamy....

I don't go often but I should. They have a several great items but the one that has struck me the most of the salad with chicken. I'm not a salad person per se but I really enjoyed this salad. They were nice enough to do some minor modifications and I really enjoyed it. Never had a bad meal there.... More

My husband and I went to J. Alexander's for the first time on Thursday. We went right after work, and got there around 6pm. I was surprised how busy it was so early! We were able to be seated right away, but wanted to enjoy a drink at the bar first, so we just put our name on the list... More

This place got me form the get-go. Entering to this restaurant was like visiting another place. The decoration resembles a Mediterranean place and its food is just way to good to be able to describe it. Nothing is the menu is alike you have ever tried, I didn't eat all, I base the comment in the description provided in the... More
