We enjoyed delicious meals here. Attentive service, nicely prepared and presented dishes. Wine was a bit expensive at 3x what I normally pay. What was really annoying were the floor joists (or lack of) in the back room on the way to the kitchen. My wife was against the wall, but I was seated about 5 feet away. Every waiter,... More

I have been there several times, most recently a couple of weeks ago. Service is impeccable. Our waiter knew everything we asked and was funny while answering. He even went the extra mile to pay my parking since I didn't have change. Food was great, had a steak, perfectly cooked. My guest had the fish and couldn't stop talking about... More

From the moment you walk in until you are walking out the door, you are treated like royalty. Every need was met.

This turned out to be a very nice enjoyable supper meal. The food and restaurant staff were much better than might be expected. Don't underestimate this place.

Dinner with friends. This is a superb restaurant in downtown Roanoke. The room is elegant, the service is professional and proper, and the food is divine. Recommended for that special someone, to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, as well as entertaining friends and business associates. Beautiful table setting, good wine list, helpful service and well prepared and presented food. A... More

Had a friend visiting so we took him here. As always the staff was wonderful and answered all his questions. Our meals were great. He and I had the sea bass and loved it. Hubby had steak which he said melted in his mouth. We shared a dessert of sinful chocolate mousse cake and licked the plate. We love going... More

Our group of four business colleagues dined at Alexander's on a weeknight, and enjoyed a nearly perfect dinner. The service was very attentive, food served hot and tasty, well-prepared. The wine list was nicely varied and had good selections at several price points. We particularly appreciated the lower noise level, and actually were able to enjoy a conversation over dinner....

Once again, Alexanders in Roanoke, has proven that consistency is one of their storing points, not to mention the food, the service, the ambience and above all the ongoing ability to make you feel welcome no matter what the occasion. My wife and I, along with our daughter, celebrated our 30th anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant,... More

We decided to stop in for dessert after having dinner nearby. We chose this based on the excellent reviews on TA but were very disappointed. The staff were very attentive but the food itself was some of the worst I have ever had. It is hard to mess up a chocolate torte but this was dry and tasteless. The whipped... More
