Diner Reviews
  • "J Alexander's is great for foodies. My husband and I had the pecan crusted trout. It was plentiful and delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and high spirited, which added to the dining experience. I try to stay away from chains when looking forward to a nice dinner out. However, J Alexander's offer a dining experience and atmosphere that is very pleasant. "

  • "Made reservations for 4 people for 7:30 two days ahead of time. I knew we in for a challenging experience when they tried to seat us at the kitchen doorway with a half empty restaurant. I demanded a better booth and was accomodated. Wateress took drink orders dissapeared for 20 minutes. Returned with wrong drinks. Etc. etc. etc. when food did arrive the steaks were very good. With so so many restaurants to choose from in the area id rather go some where with attentive service where they welcome you and make you feel appreciated for choosing to dine with them."

  • "The restaurant was very classy, had polite staff, and outstanding food. I ordered the Filet Mignon with a baked potato. Absolutely incredible. The staff was friendly polite, and prompt. The one thing that was strange was their lack of coasters, straws, and even a check bifold. I'm not sure if it's a cost cutting measure, or something else but it resulted in the liquid condensation from outside the glass to find it's way all over the table as well as provide me with a soaked receipt due to the lack of anything protecting it. Other than these things, it was outstanding."

  • "We didn't stay to eat. Reservations were made for 12:15. We arrived at 12:12PM - We ended up leaving at 12:45 as there were still 2 other tables that had reservations ahead of us. What is the point of making a reservation if you cannot get seated in a timely manner?"

  • "My husband and I had a great time at the restaurant. There was a very short wait time, everyone was polite and our waiter, Cody was a great help and was very familiar with the menu. He made some really great recommendations!!! I would definitely revisit the restaurant again."

  • "Still had to wait 15 mins despite having a reservation. The service was much slower than usual and my food came out cold. Had to send it back. I told then to just heat it up in the microwave for 1 minute. They didn't bring my food back to the table for another 10 minutes. Urrrrr. This was annoying bc we had already waited a long time for our food. The food was good once I got it hot. This place is usually great, but this last time was just average. The waiter seemed new and inexperienced. They had a huge lunch crowd so think they were overwhelmed. We won't be back for awhile."

  • "I love this place. It's the second time we've visited in a month. Each time was wonderful. The food was great, the service was great, and I would recommend it to anyone. I had the filet mignon with béarnaise. It was very flavorful, and juicy. I order my steaks medium well, and even cooking it at that temperature doesn't make the filet tough. It almost melts in your mouth, even without the béarnaise."

  • "Meal was delightful and the service was fantastic. The prime rib I had was great as always, and my wife loved the baby back ribs. The Alex's salad to start the meal and the carrot cake we took home were also wonderful. The meal was paced nicely, and Jeff the manager made sure to drop by and see that everyone was enjoying their meal. Will definitely return soon for the great service and food."

  • "The open table reservation was great! Didn't have to wait long to be seated. Our waitress had trouble managing her assigned tables. Could have been the Valentine Day rush. Food was tastefully done with large portions."

  • "Food used to be better. Poor selection for appetizers. If Houstons took reservations, we would have gone there instead. Also, the traffic on Ashford Dunwoody road is insane."

  • "I booked a reservation for my wife and I for Valentine's Day. When we walked in, we were greeted with smiles and felt very welcome. Our waitress was superb. She was incredibly friendly, happily answered all of our questions (and we had a lot of them due to food allergies), and was quick to make sure we had everything we needed/wanted. The food was delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked, and they had the best creme brulee that we had ever tasted. We will definitely be dining here again."

  • "Our first visit. Food was excellent! My crab cakes were possibly the best I've had, and my husband's filet was perfectly prepared. Much attention to detail. Only negative: my husband and I made reservation so we wouldn't have to wait, but took 25 minutes to be seated, and hostess was vaguely apologetic."
