For years, Alexander's has been our family's go-to place for fine dining whether for a special event or just because we wanted the luxurious experience of exquisite food, graciously served in a welcoming setting right in downtown Roanoke. The offerings on the regular menu are complemented each night by several specials. Every meal includes a perfect salad. The cocktail and... More

We were well served by Rachel on our first visit to Alexander's. Overall, we really enjoyed our meals of locally sourced ingredients. Everything was well-prepared, with inventive sauces and beautiful presentation. We especially enjoyed our appetizer of shrimp over a cake of corn pudding, garnished with locally grown jalapeno slices and a sauce made with hints of the pickling liquid... More

While it is a limited menu it is a menu tailored to the seasons and locally sourced foods. The scents and aromas will tantalize the most sophisticated palates from first to last bite. It is so refreshing to see that Alexander's has only gotten better in the last 14+ years.

Long my favorite Virginia restaurant, my wife and I celebrated our anniversary there Saturday night. Everything was perfect. We had requested a specific table and it was held for us. The atmosphere was perfect, the attentive staff rivals any of the great restaurants anywhere, and the food delish and very well presented. We began our evening with Sidecar cocktails, a... More

Alexander's did not disappoint. To the contrary, it surpassed our already high expectation. My wife had the pan seared maple leaf farms duck breast andd it was exquisite. I had... More

Friday night birthday dinner at our "go to" dining establishment. Had a reservation. Favorite table was next to a party of eight who were enjoying themselves. We asked to be moved to a table away from the group and were immediately moved. I had the mixed grill which was excellent. Wife had the scallops which were also excellent. Bread, croissants... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant as we thought they were part of the chain of Alexander's which we enjoy. Once we saw the menu we realized they were not part of this chain. My husband had the special striped bass almandine last night which was very good but overpriced and very small portion and there were no almonds... More
