Great Local Restaurant!

You will not be disappointed having dinner at this great downtown establishment! We have eaten here for years and have NEVER had a bad meal. The food and service is fabulous. Request the seat by the window!

If you are looking for New Orleans style dishes... Don't eat here. They have other nice selections that ive not tried, but their "Louisiana style " dishes miss the mark. Not to mention over priced. Staff is friendly. Might one day try this place again but try other things. Good atmosphere

We had a 5 star experience in the Star City. We live in Covington and are on "staycation". We decided to do some shopping and picked Alexander's based on TripAdvisor reviews using our app. Our son, who is 10, is always interested trying somewhere new. We were not really dressed for the occasion but you could not tell it on... More

We had a great dinner. The cheese souffle appetizer was fabulous and innovative. We had the rack of lamb and the duck breast, both were great; the sauces were great. For dessert we had the strawberry crumble and the Italian cream chocolate cake. Excellent. The service was impeccable and friendly at the same time!

The experience held up to the reviews. Creative preparation of local ingredients. Friendly, professional service. Nice wine list. Don't miss the crab cake.

Having read multiple laudatory reviews, our group was eagerly anticipating a great dining experience, but were disappointed. Service was slow and no bread was presented, until specifically requested, as we waited over 1 1/2 hours for our meals. The salads with a house vinaigrette dressing was okay but nothing unusual. The scallops were good but not great. The rack of... More
