Exactly what I was looking for

We had a wonderful waiter, very personable. When we mentioned there was something on the seat, he immediately pull out a light and rag to clean it up (apparently the last person had eaten ribs and thoroughly enjoyed them). The food was very good; my steak was excellent. We liked the atmosphere and... read more

We had a wonderful waiter, very personable. When we mentioned there was something on the seat, he immediately pull out a light and rag to clean it up (apparently the last person had eaten ribs and thoroughly enjoyed them). The food was very good; my steak was excellent. We liked the atmosphere and got to watch a stunning sunset.

Always very good food and great service. If you plan to go for lunch, be prepared to wait a while. It's rare to get there and not have a line ahead of you.

We were met at the door of our car by a very nice dressed lady who opened the door for my wife. I knew this was going to be good. Everyone was nicely groomed and dressed. No unkept straggly haired and tattooed waitress or waiters observed, at least no tattoos observable. Our waitress was very familiar with the menu and... More

Received a gift certificate to eat here from a friend. The atmosphere was buzzing, the food was hot and delicious and the waitstaff was friendly. We enjoyed our time at this establishment and look forward to going back again when the opportunity arises.

I was very impressed with this restaurant as it caters to a bit of an upscale crowd. My business clients suggested this location for us to meet, and although it was a bit loud, we found it conducive to our meeting for the first time. The waitress allowed us to speak for a while and enjoy a beverage before ordering,... More

I don't like chain restaurants, instead strongly preferring to eat at small, local places run by families or the chef him/herself. But darn these folks. Everything I ever get here is great. Recently, their take on brussel sprouts and cauliflower blew me away. Everything is just so good and is complimented by prompt service people who smile and act like... More

The experience starts when you come in... The grant kitchen opens into different ambients, perfect for a business lunch or dinner, or a family's meal, patio and private rooms... I'm talking about everything! Then the food.... Many delicious salad options, enough for a big appetite... Meats, fish and chicken. Quality wines and cocktails. Come early or make a reservation, it's... More

This is a nice place, but we had heard so much hype that our dining experience was a bit of a disappointment. The food was very good, but it took forever! And even though it was good I thought it was a little pricey for the portions served. My husband got a steak which was served with no salad or... More

There are so many good dining options in Nashville now, but we keep returning to J Alexander's over and over. Why? Great food. Great service. Beautiful decor. Terrific staff. And I'll mention the food a second time. Their menu offers a wide range of selections, and everything is consistently good. Love the wood fired pizzas, and the steaks and seafood... More
