Ate on 18 August and could not fault service, quality of food, wine menu, nothing. I am on a special diet and my meal was better than perfect. There are many instances at other restaurants when simple instructions are ignored but not at Alexander's.

Alexanders has had a make over since my last visit probably about 10 years ago. Gone are the heavy plush curtains and dark decor and in its place is a light bright restaurant. It isn't huge, basically two good-sized rooms with tables discreetly apart from...More

Our voucher entitled is to two entree, usually about 19$, two mains, usually about 35$, and two drinks, about 7$ each. Pretty good value for $69. Service was excellent, attentive and prompt. Meals were beautifully presented, although somewhat meagre. I'd be feeling underwhelmed had I...More
