“Excellent service and food options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This place is classy for lunch, dinner, business or pleasure. The service is great and the french press coffee is a nice touch.

“Great Dinner Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

My sister has raved on and on about this restaurant.. When I came in from Dallas, on my first night into town we had dinner here... I was pleasantly surprised by the decor... the staff was very helpful in my menu choices especially learning that I was a newbie... I ended going with a pizza and it was very tasty... the drinks were pretty good as well.. strong, lol.. but very good...

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I had the Artistian pizza .... it was to die for very good tasting food and the atmosphere was very comforting very inviting and the staff all have uniform color scheme clothing makes you feel like they know how to treat you but also make you feel like a special guest.

“Outstanding meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This was a nice restaurant just down the street from our hotel and had the most amazing food. I had the pork tenderloin with a Thai sweet chili glaze. Tender and delicious. My wife had a very delicious salmon fillet. A very nice wine list to accompany our meal. Service was swift and polite, but friendly.

“Wow, new ownership makes not so good changes?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

One of our favorite restaurants dropped the ball last night. We were seated promptly then someone came & took drink orders. We order waters, iced tea and 1 Guinness. We received the waters and tea, then were told our server would be with us shortly. Well, shortly turned into 10 or more minutes. I don;t know whether our server was given too many new tables at one time (poor hostessing?) but we received absolutely no acknowledgement such as "I'll be with you as soon as possible" or even a glance in our direction. We flagged down a hostess just as our server finally appoached. We asked about the Guinness and the server told us they had none as they were changing their beer menu. The person who took our drink order should have known that originally. A martini was ordered when no Guinness was available. It took about another 10 minutes for it to arrive at our table. We ordered our food an it basically was good as usual, but we had to ask for several condiments a second time as they did not arrive with our order as requested. Our server was unfriendly, unappreciative and pretty much a dud. One of J. Alexander's strong points in the past has been how well they train their staff. Not so much now.
We were at the White Bridge Road location. By the way, friends told us they had the same "No Guinness" scenario at the West End locaton but were not told beer menu was being revamped, just that it wasn't available. Also, West End has the popular Tai Kai salad on the printed menu, but White Bridge Rd. doesn't anymore. Yet, WBR has the Prime Rib sandwich on their menu and West End doesn't. Why? Weird. We'll return, but not quickly....certainly not untl we know they've instituted their supposed new beer menu. And, if stuck with the same server, we'll request another one.
