Excellent service, food and atmosphere

Met friends here for lunch. We were very pleased with the whole experience. Everything that we ordered was great. My significant other and I both had salmon and the other couple had burgers.

What a good time to pick up the bill.. The happy hour was a great value. The drinks were good. The food was good. I would go back ( and bring your friends).

Prices are not cheap. Salads just got a lot smaller. Lots of better choices in the area. Service was fair. After getting our meals the server didn't come back until we were done. Could have used a drink refill.

This isn't based on just a visit. I've been coming here for years. I have never had a bad meal or disappointing experience here. Beyond that, J. Alexander's has squadrons of attractive, energetic, well-trained people who take care of you as much as you need. As I think about it, I can't think of another restaurant at any price or... More

First off it's very elegant and the wait staff is perfect. Everyone works together it's wonderful. I'm sorry to say and I usually avoid it cause I find it ridiculous to put deviled eggs on the menu but they were so very good!! Everything was. If you like Mac and Cheese please try theirs it's beyond words. Even their croutons... More

I grew back repeatedly for the vegetarian burger here. Service is fast and friendly, though they do constantly try to upsell.

J. Alexander's always has good food and service. The restaurant is attractive. Be prepared to wait. It's almost always busy. There's a nice bar to get a drink while you wait. The restaurant is a bit noisy, but the good points override that.

Fun presentation of food and very generous portions. I've been for dinner many times but this was the first time for lunch, what a pleasant experience. The server was new and made a mistake or two but with time and familiarity she will be the best server they have.

I've been there 3 times now. The service is strictly mediocre and so is the food. I don't know why so many people flock there. Perhaps because it's a nice restaurant in a great location? With so many other choices, I really cannot recommend it.

Today was my second time eating at J Alexander's in West Bloomfield. I stopped there for lunch about 1:30PM. Service was top notch. Hostess very pleasant, waiter did an outstanding job. As I was seating at my booth, I couldn't help to notice how nice & professional wait staff was. This is not a cheap place, but I still consider... More
