Alexander's remains my favorite for a special dinner out. It is a dining experience best enjoyed with people you want to share a fun evening with. Waitstaff are attentive but never intrusive or pretentious.

I read they can accommodate gluten free but was very disappointed in their selection. We got stuck with salads and the one salad came with gluten bread even thought we had lengthy conversation about gluten free options with staff. The salad was good.

Thank you for taking the time to review us but it would be even better if you had taken a few minutes to actually talk to us about how we care for the needs of our many gluten free customers! We are not a gluten free restaurant, but we care about all of the dietary needs of all customers- not... More

My wife and I agree that their scallops were some of the best we ever had. The corn pudding was more like a soufflé, super delicious. The bowl of tasty squash and smoked salmon soup was served hot, though not a large portion. Overall, the chef's selection of spices made the favors subtle and not overpowering. Overall, a most enjoyable... More

The family has enjoyed Alexander's for years now, and the most recent experience reinforces the superb dining experience which is on evident here. We visited on a blustery Friday evening, and found the restaurant warm and inviting. While there was some drama with some folks on the street, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Seared scallops, filet of beef, tuna were... More

My wife and I went with my parents for there 52 wedding anniversary. We requested the window table and got it. Best seat in the house. Food was excellent. I had the fillet and my wife had the chicken. Both cooked perfect.

If you want to get away from the home style food and go out for a special evening of dining then this is the place. The plating is beautiful and the food is great. I had the duck breast and it was cooked perfectly. I went with my office co-workers and the place is small but I believe there are... More

The server was very polite and attentive. An ice relaxing atmosphere. While the food is not bad, it is bland. Really no flavor or character in the dishes. Considering the price I expect something. If you have some that wants a plain meal and nonadventureous...this is your place. Again a great place to take mom and dad!! May least make... More

A professionally run operation with excellent food. Your host offers to take your coats and at the end delivers the correct garments as you are preparing to leave. No chits, just intelligent service. The food is served in a synchronized fashion. If there are six at the table there are three servers to deliver two plates each so that everyone's... More

The weather couldn't have been worse, so it could have been an awful night. We arrived and were warmly greeted. We were offered a great window table. Our servers were lovely. Well prepared cocktails, delicious food, attentive -- without being overly so-- service. For an ugly night, it was a lovely experience! Highly recommend!
