    I'll start of by saying that our waitress was exemplary. That was the best part of our evening, we started off by having appetizers which for the most part were okay, we then selected soup and mentioned to our waitress that the last time we have it the soup was cold and to please warm up the plates, which she did. With that said we ordered the Prime Rib, the meal was delivered in COLD PLATES, which I blame the back of the house (they apparently do not care about the customer experience at all), I spoke to the manager about this and he said something about he would relay the message back....did not hear a word back regarding this!

    My wife and I dined with Alexander's prior to attending a concert at DTE. We arrived at 3:30pm for the early dinner crowd. We were promptly seated in one of their raised half circle booths, which we really enjoy, since our first dinner date ever included just such seating arrangements. Decor and lighting were what I would describe as throwback with a modern slant. Very tastefully done and well thought out in my humble opinion. Our waitress, Jenna, could not have given us any better service. As she navigated us through the menu it became very apparent that she knew these waters from personal experience. Appetizer: Bruschetta Soup: Clam chowder Main dish: Baseball Sirloin and Alexander's Special. Dessert: Creme Brulee. Overall excellent!

    My date and I sat for almost 15 minutes before being offered a drink and we were about to leave even though we made a reservation and the place wasn't busy at all. Took another 10-15 minutes for the wine bottle to show up. Beyond that, the food came out hot and was great. Prices were in line with other upper scale restaurants. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.

    We had a surprise birthday party here, and the servers and host couldn't of been nicer or more accomodating. The food was very good too. I was looking forward to having the prime rib, but I must say, it used to be my favorite, but it's drier now. It's not bad, just not melt-in-your-mouth amazing like before. Also, the lobster bisque my 2 friends ordered was a strange color (brownish, instead of the usual coralish color). Overall, though, everyone was so pleased, especially with the service.

    This was my second time at Alexander's. The ambiance is nice and the service is good. The food is good, as well, but it is very overpriced. I remember when Alexander's was Brighton House. Although Alexander's has some higher-end items than Brighton House, like escargot and lobster, the food is no better than Brighton House's, which was delicious and was a great value. I don't want to discourage anyone from going to Alexander's-rather, go, enjoy, and decide for yourself.

    Positives first. Our waitress was a total sweetheart who was very professional & attentive. The dining area was clean and comfortable. The food however, was average at best. Ceasar salads arrived with sardines instead of anchovies as ordered, asparagus was way over-cooked (actually black / charred), as where the two scallops that I paid an extra $10 for. The steak was good, however the potatoes felt like they had been cooked long ago and were re-heated before serving as they were very chewy. My wife ordered grilled white fish and said she thought it was previously frozen and came in a box.

    We took our good friends out for an anniversary dinner. Could not have been better! Great service and excellent food! I had the scallops and Parmesan risotto and it was wonderful. the hubby had the perch and said it was very good. Friend had the prime rib and said it was great and her hubby had the swordfish and was equally pleased. Ended this wonderful dinner with the creme brûlée' -- yum!!! This was our third visit to Alexander's and we have not been disappointed yet. Highly recommend, not cheap but well worth the cost. Sorry that I don't remember our server's name because she was terrific!

    The second time was as good as the first. My brother and I had the Alexanders special, Chilean Sea Bass and Scallops and the dinner was outstanding. Both my brother and I raved about it. My wife had prime rib, and while it wasn't the best she had it was good. Our ceasar salads were top notch as well. We recommend it.

    The king crab legs were done to perfection. They were easy to open because of prior preparation in the kitchen. The service was prompt and friendly. The lettuce wedge we ordered was crisp and the vegetables were not overcooked. I was pleasantly surprised to see duck on the menu.

    Getting a reservation here gets you one of the worst tables in the place, between two large parties. We couldn't even carry on a conversation. Not sure why they would give you this table, they had others available. Also the hostess cared less if you had reservation, it was not like they saved a table for you. I asked if we could have a booth and she said it was saved for someone else, no one sat there the whole time we were there. The food was nothing out of the ordinary and sorta of bland. Service was fine. I do not mind paying well for good food and a table where I can talk to the people dining with me, this place had neither.

    We are not picky and love trying new restaurants, but this was the worst restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food was overpriced for the portion size, may have overlooked that if I hadn't received 4 small, super salty, almost not edible, scallops with only three asparagus strips that were very woody, and undercooked, yet mushy risotto. My husband had steak (practically rare and he ordered medium/well, but the outside was so burnt he didn't want them to burn it more to cook the inside), his potatoes and brussel sprouts were also half burned. The poor review would have happened even without the fact that the waitress dumped half a pitcher of water on me too. Super disappointing. Would not go back or recommend this restaurant.

    Our 5th or 6th visit on July 23. I had a party of 9. I only heard complains about our server. I also heard gripes about the size of the servings...and the quality was so-so! I hope that this is NOT the beginning of the end for Alexander's - since we had all 5 stars for our last 4 or 5 visits!

    JENNA IS AMAZING! We had two waitresses and they were both great, but Jenna is a definite Keeper! The food was terrific! Lobster Bisque, Crab Cakes, Key Lime Pie, Shrimp Scampi with pasta and sun dried tomatoes - it was all very delicious. Can't wait to go back to Brighton and eat there again. We had a wonderful night and they have a beautiful outdoor deck for dining. It was the perfect place to have my mom's surprise birthday party.

    The food at Alexanders is always satisfying and the staff is very knowledgable about the food and wine pairings. The perch and seabass dishes are exceptional. The lobster bisque is very good as well. The only downside is the somewhat odd smell that greets you at the door.

    We have eaten at Alexanders several times and each time is a new experience. The last time it was the experience with the waiter, Jeff, who was very friendly and did not know what grappa was. After he found out he brought me a free glass. We also like the idea that the fish comes fro Foley's Fish Market in Boston. Another visit on Wednesday allowed me to order the surf & turf for $15 and it was very good.

    I made an online reservation for July 4th at 6:00 for 4 people. Received my reservation confirmation. We met our guests there Only to find out they were closed. There was no mention on the sign out front that they were closed and they should have updated the online reservation system not to except a reservation if not open. We ended up at Stillwater and had a nice dinner.

    The clam chowder was delish!!!! My husband and I both ordered Alexander's Signature, which came with (a very small piece of) sea bass and 2 scallops. It also came with asparagus and risotto (risotto was amazing). For $29 I kind of expected a little more but oh well. The scallops were really good but the sea bass was kind of fishy - my husband said the same thing. I LOVE sea bass and rarely order it bc it's so expensive, so that was disappointing. Overall it was good, but I would never order the sea bass ever again.

    Alexander's is our go to restaurant because the food is exceptional, the wait staff friendly and engaging and it's close to our home. We made a reservation for Saturday night and brought guests with us. One of our guests ordered the pork chops and my husband order the prime rib, which is his meal of choice here. Neither entrees were available! How can a restaurant of this caliber, who is known for their prime rib, run out so early in the evening? We make reservations because we like the dining experience and the food. I must say, our waiter did give us 2 desserts on the house, which was very kind but, we don't go out to eat for the dessert. We will continue to patronize Alexander's and hope that we don't have this experience again.

    After raving about my previous lunch experience, my husband was anxious to eat here. We brought guests, and my husband had the perch, which he said was the best he had in years! My friend's wife and I had the special baseball steak and lobster tail, which was very small, and appropriate for the price, however it was as tasteless as it looked, dry. The steak was tough. My dog loved it. Our friend had a beef dish and I notice he left a good portion. When I asked, he said it was tough and gristly. That was so disappointing and embarrassing. I prefer not to have staff come up and ask ," is everything wonderful?" or something like that as I'm not going to complain in front of our guests. I will try again, but only for the fish.

    Omg. This is a great restaurant. We joined friends there Saturday night. This used to be the old Brighton House. But with top to bottom re-do this place has a great updated ambiance and the food is wonderful. My eye caught were the medallion size scallops as the were delivered to another guest. I had to have them. They were perfectly prepared. My friend had the crab cakes and said they were awesome. My husband had the prime rib and said it was great. Service was a little slow. We sat outside on the patio which looks onto the parking lot. Inside is designed beautifully. You will enjoy your experience.
