Higher end dining at a mid range price. I love the prime rib. That's about all I can say. I didn't even like prime rib until I had Alexander's. Every time I go there and I don't get prime rib, I regret it. Not because whatever I ordered was not good, only because the prime rib ruined me. Trust me.... More

This is considered one of the best in Toledo and I thought I would try in Columbus. I am never satisfied and the prices is high The next night I went to J Gilberts and had the most wonderful steak. JAlexander's is an average restaurant with a great facility but the food is always so so.

We went for my wife's birthday and had a terrific time. The staff was very helpful, friendly, truthful and the food was served promptly, decoratively and tasted great. The portions were generous, not silly, and anything we wanted changed was changed almost immediately. Food for most budgets and whatever the price, it was good. We went home very happy, it... More

J Alexanders has always been one of my favorite restaurants, but now it is even better. The food and service has always been tops, but over the last couple of years they have really gotten "classy!" Lovely wine glasses, white table cloths, attractive candles on the tables...............but best of all.....they lowered their wine prices!

This restaurant is so amazingly delicious. Everything from the wine to the salmon dip to the prime rib to the key lime pie was superb. The wait staff (we had Adam) was very knowledgeable and professional. I will definitely go back for special occasions.

Some of the best quality prime rib I have eaten. Aged, seasoned, and prepared properly. This can be eaten rare because of the quality. Salads, sides, rolls, and desserts are all incredible. I have never had a mediocre meal there.

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. It is a wonderful facility, with subdued lighting in the dining areas, and bright lights for the Kitchen Chefs in an opened area. The service staff is exemplary, and all are professionals at their work. They not only attend to your dining experience, they make sure the dining area is properly... More

I went to J. Alexander's for a friend's birthday dinner. We were immediately seated at a table of 6 with no wait. Most of us ordered steaks, and they were amazing. The house salad was also great and different than other places! It's a great splurge for a special occassion.
