Business meeting with colleagues. Very good Deviled Egg appetizer, followed by an excellent medium-rare Prime Rib. Great flavor, and very tender. Will definitely return next time in town.

He let them know if was our anniversary ahead of time, and they comped us glasses of champagne on the house! We thought it was a nice surprise. My boyfriend got... More

We ate at this restaurant twice while visiting Chicago, and each time the food and the service were very good. We didn't have a reservation, but they were very accommodating. The restaurant is warm and roomy; perfect for large parties. I didn't like the background music, which was always Jazz; I guess some people would enjoy it, but for me... More

This time, I got the ribs. Very good. But the beets side dish was even better. The wine was tasty. But the 45 minute wait for a table, wasn't that fun. But it was the holidays, so I understand.

We used to come to J. Alexander's before going to the theatre at Drury Lane and hadn't been in a long time. I always got the prime rib because it was the best I had ever had. This visit was like coming come - prime rib was still wonderful. So were the Pomegranate martinis. Great service, fabulous food. So glad... More

Our company had reservations during a very busy lunch time. We were 15 minutes late, and wait just 5 minutes for seats. The wait staff was vey helpful even though the place was quite hectic. The food was simply outstanding, both from the standard menu and the specials menu. The place was very noisy, not too noisy for a celebration... More

Visited this restaurant with friends. Had a reservation, but still had to wait 50 minutes past that time. We were so ticked. Manager apologized more than once, however he could not explain the delay. They overbooked. We were leaving and he offered to buy drinks, which we turned down. A table the opened up in the back corner of the... More

My first meal here would have been around 10yrs ago. Each time I come to Chicago on business I stay in the Hilton nearby, so often eating around the local restaurants. This place is full any night of the week, service is excellent, and the food has been consistently excellent in my experience eating here the past 10yrs. The only... More

I go here often and had not reviewed them. You are greeted quickly and seated. Servers are usually quick to arrive get an order and refill drinks. The club sandwich and roasted chicken are great. Sides are easy to select and like the broccoli over fries. Carrot cake is great and often to go. Nice clean atmosphere. I realized I... More

One of the best prime rib entrees that I have had. Went here with a group from work and all enjoyed the food and the service.
