  • AVOID THIS PLACE!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    Terrible terrible service! Waiter had at least 20 smoke breaks and reaked! We were one of five tables in the entire place and our food took about 45 minutes. Food was cold, overcooked and unrecognizable! Shrimp was so chewy you couldn't even eat it. The pasta with sausage and peppers was aweful. A simple dish of tomatoes and pasta tasted of bleach. Seriously people how did this place get such good reviews? The only person in tune with us was the support staff. Finally, after our "waiter" disappeared I couldn't take it anymore. I had to talk to the manager and fill her in on everything. She refused to let me pay the tab. That at least was nice. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME or GAS going downtown to this place. You will be disappointed.

    My husband and I absolutely love Alexi's for the atmosphere, service and the food. We only wish we lived closer, because we would definitely be a regular customer. Whenever we have an event to attend downtown, Alexi's is our first choice. We always get a great meal at a great price and are treated exceptionally well. We look forward to our next visit.

    The food is good, however, you have to like garlic as there is plenty of it in everything. The service is very prompt, almost too fast. Portions are generous. I would not call it fine dining but definitely good quality.

  • Great Place for A Business Lunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/18/2014
    Alexi's is definitely a good place for a business lunch. The food is very good, the ambiance is white table cloth, with excellent service. This is a perfect place for a business lunch especially for busy C-Level executives who have very little time but do need to take the time for lunch. The table are situated so that doing business is easy. The noise level at times might be a little elevated but it really does not interfere with a conversation and actually provides a bit more privacy to your conversation. I highly recommend Alexi's for a business lunch or just a friendly get together. You just can't go wrong with choosing Alexi's Grill.

    One of my favorite restaurants. Matt at the bar knows my name and what I like for lunch. I always order the fish special, which is fresh, tasty and comes in a short amount of time which fits my lunch schedule. I get the salmon, simply grilled, it is moist and flavorful.

    Our party of 5 came here for a special dinner. We were seated promptly as we arrived. We had requested a private area so we could talk freely. They seated us in an area that was just as we asked. Thomas, our server, did not rush us. He provided us with menus and a wine list and answered any questions we might have had. Thomas was excellent. There when you needed him and not hovering. He never questioned the occasion for the dinner until handing the check which was very nice. This was a very personal meeting of close friends and all had a wonderful time.

    Established restaurant, with staff that has been there almost since the beginning (a very good omen.) Interior is dated; could use some refreshing. Nothing daring or imaginative on the menu, but at least you know what you are getting. Rack of lamb special would have been better without a lemon-garlic sauce, perhaps blended spices??? But prepared to medium and very tender (albeit mine were a bit fatty). Bone-in veal chop was huge, served with same lemon-garlic sauce, cooked perfectly and extremely tender. Both entrees served with carrots, broccoli & baby potatoes (very unimaginative). Service was attentive. We didn't feel rushed at all. Lots of locals and repeat customers (another good omen.)

    My first visit (but not my last) to Alexi's was on Sat., May 10, to celebrate Mother's Day. I made a reservation a week in advance for 5:00 PM dinner with my husband and mother-in-law. We had never been to Alexi's before but the reviews were great, so we took Mom for her special day. We rode the light rail from Tempe and had a wonderful dinner, including cocktails, appetizers and dessert. Our waiter was efficient and very personable. The eggplant parmesan was wonderful (Mom's favorite) and the tortellini with vodka sauce and black beans was tender and tasty. Service was impeccable and ambience was delightful. We especially enjoyed the total absence of crying, screaming children!!! The food was great, the bill moderately priced.

    We were looking for a good restaurant, reasonably priced and with GOOD food, not too far from the Arizona Theatre. We found it. Alexi's Grill had a varied menu with some great specials and the prices were amazing. My husband ordered a premium vodka Martini...cost was $5.00! I had the duck special which arrived crispy, not greasy, and with a great orange sauce. My husband got the salmon and it was delicious as well. We will return regularly. What a pleasant surprise! We made the reservation on Open Table and we were thanked by the Maitre ' D for making it.

    This restaurant has good food and good service. The only thing is that the typical age group for this restaurant is a bit older than most young people would be willing to be surrounded by. It is no doubt good value price vs quality of food. However, just not a place for "hipster people" to go. I was not aware this place was like this. However, I'll return solely for the food. They definitely know how to cook here1 (only suggestion is go easy on the oil next time) :)

    The food was delicious, however the staff seemed harried and hurrying from place to place. Restaurant was packed, so I know they were busy, but I felt like I had to eat quickly then leave. Coffee at the end of the dinner was cold, however was replaced with hot coffee when requested. I've eaten here before and the ambiance and noise level is usually quite nice and much quieter.
