They consistently put out a good meal, with good service. Have eaten at J's in many locations and find it to be of the same high quality.

I love the salads at this place...they're huge. Deviled eggs, salmon, chicken soup...not the usual menu. All very good. Upscale, moderate to expensive.

I went for lunch for my birthday with friends. I had the salad with the sushi grade tuna and it was very good. My friends had other salads that were also tasty. Our service was on the slow side, but our waitress was very nice. Our table was next to the window and a bit drafty. We had a nice... More

We ventured out from our hotel in search of a good meal (we had had one bad one during our trip). We're familiar with J. Alexander's from our home turf. This one was true to what we've come to expect. Seat-To Eat time was about 15 min. Brittany was one of the best food servers we've had in awhile. The... More

Good food, wonderful service. We were a large crowd, there were no complaints. We all were served our food within 5-7 minutes of each other, therefore it was still hot.. very pleased

The front desk ladies sat us at 2 different tables, despite the fact that we gave them names and arrival times... after 15 minutes we texted each other, and we had, in fact, sat in pairs at 2 different tables within waving distance of each other. Once we got resettled,... More

Good to excellent food and service. very nice classy atmosphere. Not one meal went back , cooked perfectly ,a very good sign . Just hard to justify $150 for 4 meals with no extras and a tip. If this is the number 2 restaurant in West Bloomfield , maybe we have settled on just decent being the norm. I would... More

I have to admit that the Mac & Cheese, and the French fries are very good. The service was mediocre. The kitchen may not have a clue... Three of us ordered the "Steak Burger"... one medium rare and the other two medium. Delivered was, one medium and two well done. Any short order cook should be able to cook a... More
