Excellent!

A little pricey with everything ala carte, but an excellent meal served in a wonderful atmosphere. I've found the same true in their Livonia, West Bloomfield and Troy locations. Highly recommend!

I have been to J Alexander's two times and both times I was impressed by the quality of the food and the service provided! We had been to another well known restaurant with comparable prices a few days earlier and found J Alexander's to be far superior.

Food arrived hot and prepared to order. Cocktails were generous. There did seem to be quite a bit of "talking noise". If you were looking for a quiet dinner this may not be the place for you.

I've eaten here a few times. Once, for lunch and once for dinner. Both times were pleasant experiences with good service and good food. Wait staff is quite personable as well.

I had a business dinner in the middle of the week. The restaurant was full so easy to understand it is a popular place. Ordered the prime rib as that is supposed to be their specialty and loved it. Friendly staff and great service.

The Remoulade sauce served with this $14 burger was excellent and worth the money. service was good and the decor was very nice for a lunch or casual dinner. Located in the tony Somerset mall this is a fun place to eat and shop.

I like going here. That being said, it's usually a special occassion type visit only because, like many restaurants near the mall, it is a little pricey even at lunch. It is rather noisy (even at lunchtime) but they do have good food and the main reason I go here - their carrot cake! It is like nothing you've had... More
