Alexandra's dining room is beautiful, a three story ceiling and floor to ceiling windows. There are about 15 tables on the main floor. Of these tables, about 6 are "high tops" or bar height tables furthest away from the windows. In addition there is a small bar. Next to the bar, in the "lounge area" which is more of a brightly lit service area than a dining room. Even though there were many empty tables on the main floor, the maitre d' Bonnie, would not allow me to sit there. She said, "all those tables have reservations." So I got the lounge, along with the staff who were punching in their orders, picking up their drinks, and watching TV.
My salad and dessert were good, the Kobe sliders were very good. I arrived at 6PM and happy hour until 7 meant great prices on appetizers. I really enjoyed the mulled wine with spiced rum and a cinnamon sugar rim. The acoustic guitar player performed a nice mix of pop songs and instrumental pieces. My server Nabeel was very friendly and efficient.
When I left at 8:15, all those empty tables were still empty. And most other tables on the main floor were now also empty. So I wasn't allowed to sit in the main dining room with all those empty tables, and that still stings. Because I was dining alone? or what?
I'd like to support our local businesses, the venue is beautiful, the food was good and happy hour prices are a bargain. I would like to return, but I don't want to cause a scene just to get a table in the dining room if I'm by myself.
