I met a girlfriend after work on night just to catch up on our lives. We had dinner and drinks. The food was really good and the service was excellent. We were there on a slower night.

I am going to preface this review by saying we like John Alexander's, will continue to eat there, and you should too. Our most recent visit was for Valentines Day. We like the atmosphere there very much. We were seated promptly. There was a fixed menu with a few choices for entrees and desserts. Nice choices. We both had the... More

With business colleagues, we went for lunch. The food was good enough, but nothing special. The prices were a bit high for the quantity and quality. Service was acceptable, but drink refills could definitely have been improved. Together, JA's is an average lunch eatery.

I have only been here once and had the most expensive egg sandwich in my life. Ok the sandwich was one slice of toasted bread, lettuce, provolone (which was forgot) and one poached egg. Really not worth the price!!!

Restaurant was very busy (full). We didn't have a reservation, just dropped in, spur of the moment. They went out of their way to accommodate us. Would highly recommend.

Good food and fun place to grab a drink and hang out with friends. A little pricey but it gives you that downtown in a big city atmosphere
