“Better than expected”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This turned out to be a very nice enjoyable supper meal. The food and restaurant staff were much better than might be expected. Don't underestimate this place.

“Special Occasion Dining”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Dinner with friends. This is a superb restaurant in downtown Roanoke. The room is elegant, the service is professional and proper, and the food is divine. Recommended for that special someone, to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, as well as entertaining friends and business associates. Beautiful table setting, good wine list, helpful service and well prepared and presented food. A little pricey, but not extravagant. Quiet enough for private conversation without disturbing nearby dinners. Highly recommended.

“Another Wonderful Meal”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Had a friend visiting so we took him here. As always the staff was wonderful and answered all his questions. Our meals were great. He and I had the sea bass and loved it. Hubby had steak which he said melted in his mouth. We shared a dessert of sinful chocolate mousse cake and licked the plate. We love going here and try to get there at least once a month. The staff as well as food is 5 star!!

“Elegant Dinner, Perfect Ambiance”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Our group of four business colleagues dined at Alexander's on a weeknight, and enjoyed a nearly perfect dinner. The service was very attentive, food served hot and tasty, well-prepared. The wine list was nicely varied and had good selections at several price points. We particularly appreciated the lower noise level, and actually were able to enjoy a conversation over dinner. I definitely recommend Alexander's for a business dinner, romantic dinner, or small gathering. We'll be back!

“Consistency.”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Once again, Alexanders in Roanoke, has proven that consistency is one of their storing points, not to mention the food, the service, the ambience and above all the ongoing ability to make you feel welcome no matter what the occasion. My wife and I, along with our daughter, celebrated our 30th anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant, everything was perfect from beginning to end and we will remember this evening for a long time. As always, we will return.
Till the next time.
