    We haven't been there for a few years and had forgotten how good the restaurant is. It does not have liquor, but an ample wine selection fairly priced fits this European/ French spot just fine to complement many delicious menu choices. We'll be back.

    They were having a wine party this evening and I think they forgot about their regular customers! We ordered, got our soup,and salads with some delay, had to ask for bread which came after we were finished with soup and salads. We waited over 1 hour before our main course came and every dish was lukewarm. At that point we just wanted to eat and leave. We will not recommend This restaurant or return.

    We we're hosting this dinner for company and we were overwhelmed by the service and excellent food. We sat inside but next time hopefully we'll sit outsiside. Alexander's patio was welcoming and the ambiance was beautiful. We wern't offered a second cup of coffee but otherwise no complaints..

    We particularly enjoy the outside as the tables are too close together in side and it is noisy, plus I can take my dog outside. It was cool , but we took sweaters and with the heaters we were fine. I would like to see more Italian Chianti Classicos on the wine list.

    Alexander's was recommended to us on Friday night and we couldn't wait to try it . We were very lucky to get in and were very, very pleased with the food, as they were. As a party of 4 we all had various dishes and each of us thought our meal was delicious. We had the lobster bisque and butternut squash soups as our starters. Our main dish choices were the scallops, tenderloin with peppercorn or blue cheese and the macadamian nut crusted grouper. All were fantastic! We will be sharing this hidden gem with more friends this season.

    The ambience when outdoor dining is available is quaint and romantic. A little off the beaten path makes it quiet and "conversation friendly". The chef continues to provide good taste with creative presentations. Service is usually very good, but this trip was somewhat less attentive than normal.

    WE ENJOYED THE FOOD AS ALWAYS BUT THIS VIST WAS MARED BY THE POOR SERVICE. OUR WAITER WAS FINE BUT THE KITCHEN ONLY HAD TWO CHIEFS FOR 140 DINER NIGHT AND IT TOOK A VERY LONG TIME TO GET OUR DINNERS. NO ONE CAME TO APPOLOGIZE OR OFFER A DRINK OR APPITIZER--INDEED THE MANAGEMENT DID NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR POOR SERVICE AT ALL. WE ARE DISAPPOINTED ENOUGH TO TAKE IT OFF OUR LIST.

    Alexander's always produces excellent food and renders very professional and attentive service. The menu is classic, and every dish I have had is excellent. We dined off the early dining menu (which changes weekly) on Saturday. While many early dining menus are pedestrian (and uninviting), I had cioppino which was flavored as well as any I can recall. The other choices also offered a flair in terms of sauce or offering. And, Jon provided an excellent level of service. Alexander's reconfirmed it position as one of my very favorite Naples restaurants for both lunch and dinner.

    I ordered veal medallions and the arrived way thicker than I thought -- and very tough -- did not enjoy my dinner -- but everyone in our party did. It was much too dark for my husband (he is slightly vision impaired) so we probably would book inside next time. But we are not rushing back....

    Bad surprise on May 31st: on their home page, it was stated that Alexander's is open until end of May and therefore I booked a table and got a confirmation that the reservation was OK. However, when we arrived at the Restaurant, it was closed and and an information said that they are closed for the summer, re-opening in September. Why did they not switch off the online reservation system?????

    Unfortunately we did not know it was their last night before closing for the season. They had a closing menu which did not have many of their usual dishes. Since it was our first time there and heard such good reviews I will give it another try in season. Food was very good but wine selection was limited and the first bottle they gave us was not good and too warm. Service was just ok and the AC was not working properly, very uncomfortable sitting in the dining room.

    Alexander's has been in the same location for years. If having dinner outside, remember it is cooler as the sun sets. The food is great, attitude of staff tremendous and I always have a good experience. Local people are aware of the restaurant but it is hidden behind some buildings so don't be surprised if you have a bit of difficulty finding it.

    Fantastic restaurant with a knowledgeable, attentive & friendly staff. We were not rushed and it was a very relaxing evening. It was great to find a restaurant where you can carry on a conversation without having to shout across the table. The food was fresh and the size of the portions were perfect. The wonderful menu made it very difficult to choose what to order and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. Can't wait to return!
