“The perfect dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Great service and food with excellent atmosphere
Great menu selection, we really enjoyed our meal. Although we should have ordered the lunch size desert to share - ours was a little too much
Perfect night dinning on wonderful food in a friendly atmosphere
We didn't book and was lucky because we went early, book ahead to be sure of a table

“The search for the best lamb chops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I love lamb when it is prepared correctly, and I usually order it when I'm traveling and going to nice restaurants. The best lamb EVER is at Alexander's in Roanoke, VA! The entire restaurant menu is palette-pleasing on every count, the ambience is perfect, and the staff gets a 5-star rating plus. The menu combines a mixture of old and new guaranteed to persuade any skeptic. The appetizers are always a taste delight. Kudos to my favorite restaurant.

“Never a disappointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

My wife and I chose Alexander's to celebrate her birthday and as always, we were not disappointed. The service was impeccable, the food outstanding, the atmosphere romantic, the little touches were very much welcomed, all in all an extraordinary evening for a special occasion.
We've made Alexander's our destination for any reason to celebrate no matter what the occasion.
We will return, sooner than later.

“Oh, so good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We dined at Alexander's as a Valentine treat because we had a gift certificate. The six courses were superb and each plate was beautiful. I do wish we could have dinner there more often, but it is too pricey for regular visits. Expect to pay over $100 per person...and we did not drink. Lunch on the other hand, is more affordable. Check for days they are open and the hours.

The good news is that you can order drinks and a 3-4 course dinner at Alexander's for $55.

Thank you for your lovely review and the positive reviews of our many customers. We are so happy that you enjoyed your dinner here for Valentine's Day. However, there seems to be a good intentioned misunderstanding that should be clarified. You caution future diners that it costs more than $100 per guest to eat at Alexander's and this is absolutely incorrect. You can order a cocktail or glass of wine and four courses for an average $50 per person excluding tip and tax. In fact the average per guest expenditure here is $55. We are pleased that you enjoyed the dinner but hope that in the future you will not discourage others who want to come here by exaggerating the price of dining at Alexander's.

On New Year's Eve and Valentines we offer a special prix fixe menu of multi courses including a glass of wine for $68 per person. Many of our customers enjoy the convenience of a first class celebration dinner without the inconvenience and expense of going to Washington DC and New York where prices are much higher. We are able to showcase new menu items and ingredients and "pull out the stops" for a very affordable price.

We want customers to know that our great food and service can be enjoyed at any price point. We welcome many weary travelers who are casually dressed and looking for a quality dining experience. Our delicious small plates average $10, our entrees including salad start at $23.75 and highly rated vintage wines are all under $9 per glass. We hope that you will be back soon to enjoy the experience. And thanks again to all who appreciate what we do.
