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

Prix Fixe Menu was full of good choices and a great value, including a glass of wine, champagne, or beer. The food was prepared perfectly and the service was quick. Fun party favors for the table. Our only complaint was our waitperson seemed to be a little overwhelmed and didn't know the beverage offerings and at the end of the... More

I just clicked the option to say this was not one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant....but I must say it is close! We had dinner there on a Friday evening; arrived early but they moved us on in as they had already prepared our table. I ate with three others. We had a shrimp... More

My extended family, age range 12-82, recently enjoyed another fine meal and dining experience at Alexanders. This place, which my wife and I had only visited before on special occasions, has now moved to the top of our list for any occasion. The service, setting, food quality has been consistent and very, very high. It is on the pricey side... More

As a local, I would highly recommend this restaurant, for visitors traveling through the area of downtown, Roanoke, Virginia. This restaurant is one to remember for years to come, with the flavor, quality and presentation of the food. The ambience, and the service was exquisite.
