- From appetizer hell to steak heavenOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/13/2014Artichoke queso and Cheesesteak rolls were horrible. Then we received our filets. OUTSTANDING. We could not believe a kitchen that delivered such mediocre appetizers could plate such outstanding steaks.
- So so experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/12/2014Food was just OK. For the price I expected the food to be better. We had a server in training which probably didn't help things. The ambiance of the place was pretty nice.
- Great Food and ServiceQualityFoodDined on 8/24/2014Great food, service and atmosphere. Great price on wine by the bottles.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice surprise.MetallDined on 8/21/2014I've seen this restaurant for years and always wanted to try it. Hubby and I were entertaining my mom and a friend so we decided to give it a go. What a nice surprise! The service was outstanding and the food was wonderful. Portions were generous. We will definitely be going back to J. Alexanders.Special Features:
- Very good in all pahses.JAlexisgreatDined on 8/19/2014We started with the calamari and it was cooked to perfection. I had the Ahi tuna and my wife the shrimp. Each entree was very good with minor flaws (a little under salted, the tuna was closer to medium). In all, you have to search for deficiencies. Service was excellent. The key lime pie was excellent although a large portion (fit for sharing). This is a top-tier restaurant and I'd recommend it for people in the Houston area.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always Good!gracieDined on 8/15/2014As always, food and service are great. Prime rib always a winner and grilled redfish was delicious. Our server made a great wine suggestion. Will definitely be back.Special Features:

- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/12/2014J Alexander's is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the food. Really wish there was a restaurant in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. One thing I would like to recommend is complimentary bread or chips and salsa when dining in.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GoodOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 6/28/2014This was my first time dining at this location and I felt there were some points that could use improvement however the staff went out of their way to accommodate a request to provide a dish not on the menu that night but I would not have requested that dish if the hostest (Laurie - I spoke with her via phone earlier in the week) had not specifically told me the item would be on the menu for Saturday night. I called since I was coming from out of town and wanted that particular item.Special Features:
- Always good.HTX77077Dined on 6/27/2014J. Alexander's is always a great place to go to get good drinks and great ribs. This one time the service was a bit slow, but it will definitely not keep us from going back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dining at J. Alexander'sLovetoeatDined on 6/15/2014I really love the atmosphere when dining at J. Alexander's. The service is always outstanding and the food is to die for.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/26/2014We had reservations for 6:45 p.m. on a rainy Monday night for our party of three. I arrived first and was very pleasantly greeted from the moment I stepped in the door. Our waiter, Ray, was perfect. We all ordered the red snapper which arrived in generous portions and cooked to perfection. J. Alexanders had been recommended to me by a friend who takes company customers there for business lunches. She had told me that "You can't go wrong with J. Alexander's." She was right!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food.....BUT...TheDiningQueenDined on 5/21/2014My family and I dined at the facility for a birthday celebration. The waiter (Ray) was very nice, but when the food came out unfortunately 2 plate entrees had hair in the food. The manager that was on duty 5/21/14 was nice nasty with us. He took the entree off the ticket when it was time to pay and we appreciated that but I just believe in the respect factor. Maybe that was his tonation and how he talks but it came off nice nasty. So would I dine there again? Absolutely but, the hair in the food in 2 dinner plates just made the experience lack.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- 2014goodfoodDined on 5/17/2014The food is good and the service is good except for the constant interruptions. I think if I hear "it's my pleasure" one more time I'm going to get violently ill. I am not sure who coined that expression, but it's overused and after the first 2 times annoying at best. If it's your pleasure to do something you might want to inform your face. But I digress. There was a misunderstanding about an appetizer and whom I am guessing was the manager (she didn't introduce herself) comped it. Well, that was after they mistakenly added it to the wrong bill. Overall, with the exceptions of the constant interruptions, the meal was good as well as the service.Special Features:
- Great place to eatCookieDined on 5/11/2014Had a great Mother's Day here ! Jazz music was playing friendly staff manager actually does his job and come and check on everyone !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- So GoodLindaAndBobReviewDined on 5/9/2014It's turned into our close special place. We love the ambiance, the good service and the food. We ate there the first night we moved into our home seven years ago after a long day of unloading and unpacking and were hooked.Special Features:
- Original RequestTwentyFiveDined on 5/7/2014I asked for a table out of a high traffic area as this was a business luncheon as I explained . I was given a booth by the bar with business men having some drinks. Thanks; I was not going to have that conversation with my client in hearing distance. Thats why I thought I took care of this before hand. A booth and the bar area ...That sound like an out of the way low traffic area to you?Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday DinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/5/2014We had our own private space which was a very nice surprise. The service and food were wonderful. Our only complaint is that the restaurant was very cold. The staff tried to accommodate us but it really never warmed up. Other than that, it was a very nice family dinner for my son's birthday.Special Features:
- SmittyDined on 4/29/2014Great spot for a business dinner or lunch and good for a romantic night ,the food is very good reasonable price for a steak and the wine was at a fair price .

- Terrible Service - Good FoodAndrewDined on 4/25/2014Had dinner at this restaurant this past Friday. The service was miserable. There were 4 in our party. From taking forever to take our order to waiting forever to fill our glass of water & then trying to rush us out of our table. Also, running out of food. This is a Friday night at 7:00 pm & no calamari. The crab cakes & salmon were very good. The restaurant was half full. I can know see why. It is a shame!

- OutstandingTasteeDined on 4/18/2014In my opinion, as someone who eats at a variety of restaurants in different markets because of extensive travel, I've yet to find a restaurant that rivals the ambience of J. Alexander. From service to food quality and selection they are top notch. For the diner that expects more or a romantic get away J. Alexander should be right at the top of the list; I've yet to be disappointed. By the way, I would like to see risotto added to the menu!Special Features:
- Enjoyable night with the FamilyDMillerDined on 4/16/2014There are just enough options on the menu that everyone can find something without being an overwhelming menu. The service makes up he best of the rest--Thank you for a great family night out.Special Features:
- Love the prime rib!MartinoDined on 3/29/2014The food is very good, especially the prime rib. Yumm! What keeps us coming back, besides the food, is the great service. Every time we have been there the manager drops by. In my opinion, that shows that they are serious about making your dining experience a positive one. Parking is easy and the location is great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
