    I have been a fan of Alexi's for awhile now. Their specials are always great (featuring rack of lamb, Alaskan halibut and roast duck my last tiem there) and while the quality of food is great, they don't charge the high prices you expect to find with food of this quality. I definitely hope more people discover Alexi's as, unfortunately, it was almost barren on Sat. night when I went there.

    Outstanding food & service, as always. You can't go wrong with their veal chop or the Chardonnay mussels. Great pastas, too. Handy for the office lunch crowd. I do wish, however, that they'd get some of the pedestrian plonk off their wine list and put on a few of the lesser-known gems. If done right, it won't move their pricing structure much.

    Alexi's never disappoints us. This trip we tried two specials: bowtie pasta with mixed seafood for my date, swordfish in a lemon-cilantro sauce for me. Both were excellent. Swordfish has a tendency to be dry, but this rendition was moist and delicious. Tasty appetizers and desserts, combined with top-notch service, rounded out the evening. The only puzzler: where was everybody? At no point in the evening was the place more than one-quarter full.

    The server we had was terrible, made it obvious she didn't want to be there. The food was a far stretch on creativity with the southwest twist on Italian; the flavors did not pair together well at all. The one bright spot was the classic Calamari which was very good.

    Fabulous food, as always, and great service. Great for a pre-event meal, as parking is easy and free and service is responsive to your timetable. The Halibut Athena is always the best choice.

    Our experience was tremendous. The wait staff was attentive yet not obtrusive. The food was superb. I had the bone in veal chop that was simply outstanding, my wife had the halibut which was prepared perfectly, the accompanying vegetables and pasta's were excellent, crisp, clean and plentiful. Our friends had three appetizer plates that split between them and they raved about the calamari and the mussels. The steak salad looked absolutely extraordinary. We all agreed a great place, excellent food, and wonderful for theater, shows or events downtown.

    The lamb was marvelous, and the halibut outstanding. The wine list had enough variety for me to easily pair my meal. And the spumoni was excellent. Will definitely return in the future when in the area.

    Price was fair. Food was good, as long you are happy with what ever the waitor brings, not what you order. Service could of been much better, I was giving wrong salad and my wife was giving wrong entree. When the waitor realized it he just said "well are you ok with what you got"? No big deal for him.... Also there were only about eight tables occupied but we were put at only table right next kitchen door, with a plant on the ground that every time a waitor, waitress, bus boy walked in and out of the kitchen the were walking into the fake plant.

    We were more than surprised at the experience. This was an early Valentine's Day celebration and included my wife and father in law. It was the best food we have had in several years of dining! The flavors were robust throughout! The service was exceptional! Five star food, five star service and two star prices. I have already strongly recommended Alexi's Grill to all my friends and contacts. We are definitely scheduling another reservation very soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/7/2011
    Alexi's has been part of our dinner rotation for years. This visit featured the squid steak and the desert cannelloni. The former comes in two styles: capers/tomatoes/olives or with a lemon sauce; this time I went with the former and it was excellent. My date was likewise pleased with the cannelloni (veal & spinach filling, jalapeno tomato sauce on top). If the veal chop is offered as a special (which it frequently is), it's a good bet. So is the duck with Grand Marnier sauce. Given its north-downtown location, we also like Alexi's for a nice getaway lunch when the office workload permits.
