My wife and I celebrated Valentines Day here last night. It was a perfect evening. The served a limited menu for the holiday and the choices and combinations were remarkable. Service was very good and the servers knowledgable. Cocktails are always a strong point and they make a Sidecar better than any New York bar I've ever been to...and that's... More

My husband and I had an incredible dinner for our anniversary. The staff/ servers were so attentive. Top notch service all the way. My husband had the filet and shrimp. It was cooked perfectly. I had the salmon and it was very good. Our favorite was the shrimp and grits appetizer. The grits were so creamy. Yum! I would recommend... More

Alexander's, an elegant staple in downtown Roanoke, has always been a consistently good place for a special meal. However, this visit probably took them off my list of possibilities. There's no denying the service and atmosphere are impeccable, but a change in the menu and pricing structure has made it a very poor choice for many. Small plates have become... More

Took customers visiting from Japan and had a wonderful meal. The filet was very popular and for a good reason. Fabulous meal and service. Only downside is the price especially when the drinks are flowing freely.

Called early in the week to make a reservation for Saturday evening. They were booked during the times we were looking for. They suggested Friday and suggested early since it was the Dickens of a Christmas parade Night. It worked for us. We arrived and were promptly seated. We ordered wine and decided on the veal entre. We were served... More

We wanted to have a nice dinner while we were stopping overnight on our way to Knoxville. I found Alexanders on TripAdvisor and I was able to make a reservation. What a find. The restaurant has a nice cozy atmosphere. The food was delicious. I had the filet and shrimp which had a Cajun twist to it and was delicious.... More

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
