My family went to the J. Alexander's Restaurant in West Bloomfield, Michigan 2 weeks ago and had a great experience. The upper end style restaurant is in a shopping center in West Bloomfield. Spencer Raymond one of the managers was so nice as he answered all of our questions about J. Alexander's. Being from California we had never even heard... More

J. Alexander's in West Bloomfield is a very up-to-date and comfortable upscale eatery. The menu has some reliable old favorites like best ever ribs that fall off the bone along with interesting pasta and fantastic crab cakes. Inventive new dishes are introduced on a regular basis. A very wide ranging wine and beer list with mixed drinks too. The staff... More

They always have great food no matter what you order. Their problem has been friendly wait staff. I went in July and they seated me in a closed section where I waited 30 minutes before I got somebody to recognize I was seated incorrectly. My trip in October the wait staff was much better so hope they have corrected that... More

One of the areas best chain type restaurant. The service is 5 star. The menus is somewhat limited but the food is consistent and very good. Prices are par for what you would expect.

They have the BEST calamari! I have tried it everywhere we go and have never found any better than here. Also, their portions of food are huge and pretty reasonably priced. We come to visit family and always go there for the calamari. In my opinion, can't be beat.

This is one of the nicer looking restaurants in the city. Lots of wood, dramatic layout and roomy booths. Good for larger parties. Broadly appealing menu items served for lunch and dinner. Most of the entrees are wood-grilled. Excellent chicken, fish, steaks, as well as sides. Full bar and wine list. A great place to meet business associates. A bit... More

We eat at JA every few months and they have yet to let us down. I don't even look at the menu as I know what I'm having... Steak tacos. These are the best tacos I've had anywhere and I'd highly recommend them. They have just enough spice to give them a nice but not overpowering kick. They also come... More

Good beer selection, though nothing on tap. Server was nice and courteous and gave recommendations. Burger very tasty. Big selection of sides, the broccoli was very good.

The food was good and the staff was friendly. I wouldn't of thought this was a chain. I'd suggest a reservation as the place had a lot of guest. It is pricey so be prepared for that.
