A Must Go

They have an upscale atmosphere without the stuffy attitudes. You will feel comfortable wearing anything from a suite to shorts, your not treated or looked at any different unlike some places on the plaza. Interior is beautiful, food portions are Huge and everything on the menu is great. They also... read more

Food and service were great, one little problem with our order but they fixed it. This is a fine dining restaurant but the prices are not to high so I would definately recommend this restaurant.

We just had dinner at J Alexander's and what a nice experience! We decided to eat in the bar area. Spencer was over the top with excellent service and the food and drinks were perfect! Granted, you have to arrive early or be faced with a long wait because reservations are not excepted. If you like salmon, and I usually... More

This popular bistro doesn't take reservations so dinner, even early, usually requires a wait. Since that isn't my husband's favorite thing our visits aren't as frequent as we'd like. However, their rattlesnake pasta, chicken really with a southwest flavor, and their excellent prime rib beckoned us back recently but for lunch. If you arrive early, they open at 11 am,... More

I visited for early dinner on a Thursday evening. There were more wait staff than customers. My server continually came by to fill my water and make sure all was well. This place does show great attentiveness. I had the Rattlesnake Pasta and J Alexander's salad with a glass of Sam Adam's Octoberfest. It says something when the drink menus... More

Although I have lived in Kansas City area for years, this was my first time to dine here. I went for lunch with a friend and couldn't believe how busy it was. Once I ate there, I knew why. I had the Alex Salad. Very good and very fresh. Our server Michaela was excellent. I will be back!

My husband and I were in the area for a Royals weekend and enjoyed a delicious lunch here on Saturday afternoon. Our server was a young man named Brian and there isn't one thing he could have done to improve the service he provided. We each had a salad, my husband had the City Club and I had Alex's, and...

Great food, great service. Go there! You will not be disappointed. Great menu selection, nice atmosphere. Great for lunch or dinner! I had not been there for over 10 years and it's still as wonderful as I had remembered it to be.

My husband and I used to go to J. Alexander's frequently, but we simply got into other restaurants after awhile, so it's probably been 5 years since our last visit. We just tried it again and I was so pleased and surprised to see that some of my favorite dishes were still on the menu. Two of them were the... More

My husband and I were in town on vacation and we're not familiar with the area. We stopped here on a whim. The inside of the restaurant is decorated beautifully. We were happy with the food and the price was to be expected. The patrons were dressed more casually than the wait staff, this was a bit strange to us.... More
