We love Alex's (okay, Fraschetti's)! We have dined there many times, as a couple, with family groups, and with friends. The service has always been friendly and helpful, the pace unrushed, and the food, well, how does outstanding sound? Chef Alex always comes by to say hello and to make sure we are pleased with our meals. Additionally, he provides entertainment for the whole dining room as he prepares Caesar Salad, Steak Diane, or Lobster Chantilly at table side. One evening he noticed me watching intently as he prepared the Caesar Salad at a neighboring table...imagine my surprise when he gave us a small bowl of the salad as a complimentary bonus...delicious.
My wife tends to order veal dishes here and I prefer pasta dishes. Neither of us has ever been disappointed. The food is always prepared perfectly and presented well. All seafood dishes use local, fresh seafood. I don't think you can go wrong here but I heartily recommend a reservation, especially during the summer.
