We believe this j. Alexander's is quite inconsistent. We have had wine many times that was old and stale. Yuk. Sent back by the glass. Some lettuce that was brown. The steak was so tough and the sourdough bread you have to beg for and extra butter. No.

Even though the food is good and service is also good, but the place became a little expensive for middle class customers. The calamari app went from 10 to 16 in one year. I wish we can grow out income by 60% in one year :-) I like their salmon fish dish and their string fries.

We visited for dinner while vacationing/attending the World's Longest Yard Sale. There was an approximately 30 minute wait, so we ordered an app at the bar. The bartender introduced herself and her colleagues behind the bar. Before our app arrived, we were seated! Our server made sure we got our app, side plates, etc. and told us about the specials....

For a special evening or just a great meal, this is it. We used Trip Advisor and Open Table to make a 8 pm reservation. We were seated promptly and treated like special guests. The staff members were friendly, fast, efficient, and around just enough. The veggie plate was fabulous. Creme Brûlée was simply the best.

For me there are just a handful of "standout" restaurants in Chattanooga. J.Alexanders is one of them. It is fine dining, which means not-so-low prices. However I have never eaten here that I haven't felt like I got my money's worth, plus some. Everything I've ever had from the menu had a special, unique quality that made me feel as... More

I was part of a business team that consisted of 13 people. We had a reservation, however, the staff was not ready for us when we arrived. We waited in the bar area and the bartender was very nice. When they came to seat us, we were informed there was not a table to accommodate our party and we would... More

This was our first time visiting this establishment. What a wonderful surprise. The food and drinks were top shelf and worth every penny. I certainly don't mind paying a high price for great quality food every once in a while. The marinated rib-eye I had was phenomenal.

Made my reservation for 8PM and was seated within 10 minutes. It was busy with many waiting for tables, so I was pleased they honored this. It was fairly loud, but not overly so. Very good service as they came and took drink orders the moment we were seated. Table was clean. It was a team service event with 3... More
