We arrived around 3:30 pm for a late lunch/snack. It was extremely chilly in this dimly-lit ambiance. The server was pleasant, the food was delicious (especially crème brulee and the Citron tea). Food was served quick and service on-point. Thanks J Alexander's!

We have been dining here every week for well over ten years. We like consistency with the freshest ingredients. They have fantastic salads, love the veggie burger, rattlesnake pasta and we enjoy getting salads and sharing a pizza as well. Our family has enjoyed many celebrations here as well. We haven been to many fine dining restaurants and still love... More

Three of us ordered Prime Rib which was good but not exceptional for the exorbitant price. All that came with the meal was some mashed potatoes. No bread, no salad, no veggie. You can get a better meal elsewhere at half their price.

The food here is awesome and you get MORE than enough to eat! Great atmosphere, service was good but could have been better, but I do understand as they were busy due to prom.

This place is always good. It is one of my favorite restaurants because of good service, and food that is consistently tasty. I've tried most of the items on the menu & I've never gotten anything that was bad. The salads are delicious. The wild rice orzo is one of my favorite sides. This is a great place for lunch... More

We are in Franklin for the weekend. J.Alexanders was highly recommended to us by friends. We called ahead to get on the wait list. We waited probably 15 minutes on a Friday night. The lighting is dim. The food was very good. My husband got the NY Strip. I had a bacon cheeseburger. It took a bit to get our... More

We had dinner with our friends and called in for advanced seating 1 hr prior. The hostess was very accommodating to our friend who had a broken foot and sat us in the perfect location for her to be able to get in and out of the table,

Plan two meals for your visit. This is the third time I've been here, and I'll keep coming back. I've had different food each time. Love the champaigne vinaigrette.

I've heard Miley Cyrus say J Alexander's is her favorite restaurant when she's home in Nashville. It is a local favorite as well. It has a dimly lit, urban warehouse atmosphere with exposed wooden beams and contemporary art back lit on the walls that make it as popular for a glass of wine as a family dinner. The house chicken... More

Waitstaff was snobbish and condescending so it didn't start out well. Food was okay, just okay and definitely not worth the price. Meat was tough and over cooked and when I sent it back they just brought me the same piece of meat only colder. I think it just sat on a counter in the kitchen until someone remembered to... More
