Great Dinner

We were in the Easton area and wanted to have dinner so we stopped at the J. Alexander’s on 400 Stelzer Road. We did not have a reservation but it was a Tuesday night and we didn’t have to wait.

This restaurant is a long-time favorite in the Columbus area. They currently have two sites - one in the Easton area and the other in Worthington. I am yet to visit the newer location in Easton area. The wait staff is always cheerful and attentive. I would say 4 out of 5 meals have been quite good. Their wine list... More

Walking in was a bit busy- a Friday night. No reservations and was told it would be awhile. I had my heart set on dining there so I waited, my date was late, so the wait was no big deal. When he arrived, I had a table and wine. Ordered the Pork Tenderloin-delicious! Very polite and courteous staff. Water tasted... More

We visited the new location in Columbus at 4000 Stelzer Road at Easton Gateway. The restaurant is more modern with an open floor plan. You can walk in door and pretty much see everything (I don't normally like this for a high end nicer restaurant but it seems the way things are going) so this makes things a little noisier... More

I took my former boss here for dinner to celebrate her retirement. It was a weekday evening, so they were not crowded. It was my first time but my former boss had been here several times before in that it is close to her home. As I reviewed the menu, I noticed that the prices were on the higher side... More

Since this is a chain operation I can only assume they are all the same. Had dinner there tonight and while the food was average (wine was close to vinegar) the service could only be rated as poor. Poor in that we felt rushed from the minute we sat down. Now the place was half empty when we got there... More

My wife and I ate there last night for the first time. The atmosphere was nice, and the steak roll up appetizers were awesome. Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the dinner. We had a few issues that took the shine off the evening: 1) My water glass was dirty. It had something clinging to the side. 2) As the... More

This was my third visit here and it did not start well. They were extremely busy. I had a reservation for 8:45P and by the time we were seated it was already 9:15P. It reminded me of the famous Seinfeld reservation episode ;). Anyway, the manager came on his own to apologize, and even offered a free appetizer, which I... More

There are others in the Columbus area, but we went to a new one in the Easton, a shopping area in the Columbus area. The decor is different from others we've dined in. More modern and open, less wood and private feeling. Food was delicious. I had a special trio of filets each with a different topping. I'm not a... More
