Went on a Tuesday night for a business meal. server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful but overall service was slow. Overall dinner was very lengthy. Appetizers and meals were very good and everyone at our party was pleased with the quality of their entrees. Prices we average for the location and quality. Would return again based on the quality.

This is maybe forgotten because it isn't on restaurant row in the Oak Brook Mall but if you are interested in a wide menu selection with reasonable prices give this place a try- It is busy so call ahead for reservations. We were there on a Saturday night- had the wedge salad, prime rib special, 2 prime ribs sandwiches and... More

This isn’t going to be a long review as it doesn’t have to be. I’ve returned many times to J Alexanders in Oak Brook and always find the food good, the staff good and the wine good. I’ve tried a range of food and wine of the menu and will be trying more. Whether it’s the burger, a steak, or... More

The service and management were outstanding. Had a dish that was not up to snuff. Management took it off the bill.

Thuis is a very nice restaurant with great staff, very skilled cooks, & great food. It is a higher end restaurant so expect to spend a decent amount of money but it is a great place for a special date or business dinner with a client.

Many meals here across 10yrs, and they still deliver great consistency. It's a "go to" dinner venue, albeit fairly expensive.

Go here for your grilled artichokes!! They are the best available in the area. They also have a great soup and salad offer for lunch.
