This is one of my all time favorite restaurants. I cannot begin to describe how much I enjoyed my time here this evening . The chicken pasta is to die for , the NYO Mac & Cheese( Not Your Ordinary ) is superb each and every time I go here. Did I mention to save room for the best carrot... More

I was here for lunch with a group of 8 friends. We had reservations but likely would not have needed them. However, there are few very large tables available and they can be very busy during lunch with all of the nearby office buildings and many people to serve at lunch. Nearly half of us had the Redwood salad. It... More

Food was excellent, especially the roasted chicken and prime rib sandwich. Good noise level as we had a newborn with us. Waitress was excellent and we were not rushed. Good restaurant for any occasion.

My wife and I had dinner here recently and it was very good. We like their salads, my wife has the 'house' salad and I have either the Caesar or the wedge, this time I had the wedge.... we enjoyed both - each large enough to bring some home. For dinner my wife had the French Dip - one of... More

Had heard about this place from several friends so I thought that I would give it a try. I was not disappointed, the calamari appetizer and the Riesling was a great way to start my meal. The server Owen was very knowledgeable and his recommendations of the entrée convinced me to order the Cajun seasoned Trout served with Roasted Asparagus... More

My family and I used to dine here for dinner frequently. The normal experience turned out to be mediocre food at high prices and an average service experience. We make the decision to stop returning but my wife and I found ourselves there today without kids. Lunch for two- $75. Grilled artichokes which were fantastic. Fried cod sandwich which was... More

If you're looking for a restaurant that turns tables fast and serves the usual fare in the usual way to masses of people in a fairly dusty, out-of-date atmosphere then this is your place. Went here with a friend and since neither of us were accustomed to the area they chose this (a lesson in not trusting crowd sourced ratings... More

I went to J Alexander's for a business dinner. I've been here before, and it was consistently good. The food was very good, as was the service. I recommend the Steak Burger. It is fantastic!
