The service was very efficient.
Mimosas were really good, finally one with real champagne in them!
My shrimp salad was delicious.
My friends ordered a few side dishes - tomatoes ripened, macaronni & cheese- all very good.
The ahi tuna salad was superb.
We would recommend it to anybody and the Plantation location is way more relaxed than others we have tired in Palm Beach county.

Same menu for lunch and dinner. Very good selections on the menu and a few specials daily. We had the Veggie Burger and Club Sandwich. The Club sandwich was great. Good selection of salads and sandwiches as well as some good appetizers. Easy free parking and great location.

After ordering, one of the servers from another table bought out 2 dishes and threw them on the table without even pausing at the table.

Basically she threw the food at us and one of the dishes was barely on the table and almost was in my lap.

As she didn't even stop at the table while throwing the food at us she had no idea whose dish belonged to who.

This is ridiculous service for a so called high class restaurant and the manager did not really care.

Food rating

Fries
The fries that comes with many of the dishes was terrible with no flavor at all

French dip
Neither the roast beef, sauce or fries had any taste

Grilled chicken
Had absolutely no flavor at all

Spinach dip
Very good

Steak burger
Was good

Cypress salad
Was OK

There are many much better restaurant options with better tasting food and excellent service at the same price point.

We tipped our server well as she was not the one that throw the food at us.

But it is truly terrible how they threw the food at us and the manager did not even care.

While in Plantation on family business after a very stressful day we were directed to a "nice place to eat" by a total stranger as we were not familiar with the area. What a pleasant surprise to find this" Oasis".
The décor was very modern , the menu was quite inviting and the drinks were poured with a heavy hand. The service was outstanding the food was really good and I was happy to learn that another location was much
closer to my home in Boca Raton. I can`t wait to return.

I really like J. Alexanders chain. Been to the FLL location many occasions. First time to Plantation, Florida locale. Easy to get to, easy to park, nice enough hostesses. The food was great. Nice going kitchen staff. Now on to the total PROBLEM. We arrived for a birthday and you'd think it was a funeral for them. No smiles, no "happy birthday", no acknowledgement at all. I do realize they see LOTS of birthdays but here is where we chose to celebrate so we were in a great frame of mind. We asked the bartender if there was any seating opening soon at the bar and we were dismissed quickly with the answer… "everyone's just sat, nothing opening anytime soon". OK… we'll stand and wait for the call buzzer to go off. Not but 10 mins later, 6+ couples got up and left. OK… "anytime soon" is apparently 10 mins. We sit down and you might have thought we crashed at her house without an invitation. Another b'tender was cordial but they were a united front. Then the barage of food happened. We were opening a present and the waiters just shoved the apps in front of us. I like quick service, but it was seconds from ordering! Then just as we set the forks down from the apps, the dinner was SHOVED in front of us. No time to digest. Yes, believe it or not, they used the dinner plates to push the appetizer plates closer to the edge of the bar because the b'tenders didn't bother to clear the plates. And of course there must be an unwritten rule that the waiters don't bus, ONLY deliver regardless of whether there is room to present or not. We felt caught between the self-appointed "efficient wait staff" and the "I don't care bartenders" battle. It was the most un-friendly experience for a major chain. Sensitivity training needed asap! Won't be going back to Plantation!
