    We always eat at J Alexanders at least once every trip to Palm Beach and are always happy with food and service . Entrees can be pricey if not careful with choice. Desserts are very limited and although very good, haven't been changed for years!

    J. Alexander's is a great restaurant, which we return to often. The food is excellent, as is the service. And, the ambience is also nice, as you can mostly see what's going on in the kitchen, and the decor is nicely and comfortably done. My only two tips for the restaurant are to change the menu a little more often, and ask the waitstaff to wait 5 minutes between courses.

    What a wonderful surprise....hidden away on PGA Blvd. Menu, service and food quality was very, very good. Prices were fair for the dining experience and the salads and sandwiches were some of the best I have had in years....similar to "Houstons" in its hey day! The clientele was mostly business, and it all had a wonderful sense of energy... (Loved the attire of the hosts....black dresses and pearls....would assume the same for the gentlemen hosts)

    Food is always good and fresh here and menu is creative. Love the salmon and tuna dishes. Desserts are fabulous particularly the carrot cake and chocolate lava with ice cream. We had a new server so service was not as prompt as usual but we were ok with it as we were not in a rush. This is one of our go-to restaurants and we would definitely bring new friends to try.

    Hospitable and consistently good. Service always excellent, while marinara sauce served with the calamari needs improvement. Menu could use a bit of improvement in the "special" area. Don't try to be too exotic. Simple is best. Fresh Fish, broiled, pan fried with oil, lemon, oregano, s & p is easy and great. Lobster tails, no waste, can substitute for shrimp once in a while. Love to go to your place.

    I ordered a filet and it was the worst steak I ever had. I ordered it Medium-Well and it came out burnt, dry and flavorless. I reordered it, but the new steak was just as bad as the previous one. Will never dine there again.

    The restaurant was very quite and the service was great and was really enjoyed the food as well! The people all around us seemed to be having a great time too! The hostess and the wait staff was very friendly and took our needs seriously and wanted nothing more than for us to have a great dining experience and for the restaurant to keep it's reputation outstanding and for all the people to enjoy. The bread was very good too! I found the wine cellar very interesting and find it awesome you chill your own wine there and stuff! This is my favorite restaurant and I would not trade the experiences I have had here at J.alexanders for anything because every time I have gone my party had always been entertained and been treated with the upmost res

    From the time this restaurant opened its doors several years ago, we continue to return frequently. In fact, the very 1st time I dined here (for lunch) I returned a 2nd time (for dinner) on that same day. It's that good. Many items are great, but nothing beats either their sliced prime rib on a yummy croissant or their regular prime rib. Their Alex salad with cilantro dressing is another favorite. Even their baked potatoes are great. Everything here makes it great every visit.

    This place always delivers a good meal at a fair price with good service. I can hardly finish the cypress salad it is so big. The staff works hard to keep your glass full and makes sure you leave happy. Great place to go for a quiet dinner with that special someone, and you can even carry on a conversation because it is quiet.

    We went for Fathers Day and my husbands birthday. Our server was fanatastic, very attentive. The scallops were mushy in a mushy risotto but the steak and chicken fingers were delicious. My expert grandchidren said J Alexander's has the best chickens tenders, bar none. Stick with the above mentioned and your dining experience will be satisfying.

    We have never had a bad experience at J Alexanders. We go there quite a bit. It would be nice if they mixed up the menu a bit, or had truly unique "specials" instead of featuring current menu items. The ambiance is nice, but can be loud at times.

    If you have ever ordered a Tangueray and tonic at a bar and gotten flat tonic, you will appreciate that at J. Alexander's bar they use bottled tonic! We were also very happy with our dinners. We ordered the garden burger (not like any other you've tried), fish tacos, ahi tuna salad and snapper with a mango/papaya salsa and couscous. If I had to find something to criticize it would be that the snapper was a tad dry. Service was perfect. We didn't feel rushed to leave. And we appreciated that. We'll be back.

    The service was ok, not great though and we waited quite a long time to see our wait staff once we were seated. Our filet and strip steak were overcooked, when they were ordered med rare and med, which just shouldn't happen. My wife's filet literally had charred edges that were inedible. New deviled eggs app was good but they don't tell you it is spicy. Like seriously spicy. The menu description or server should say that. We go here for date nightly be once every coils of months, it's ok to be in the rotation but by far not the best spot on the list anymore.

    I dined at J Alexander's the other night with a few business associates. We needed to catch up after a day of work. J. Alexander allowed us to enjoy attentive service, welcoming environment, and consistently good food. I enjoyed Steak Brazzo which was a well cooked Filet with a delicious mushroom sauce. My business associate enjoy the fall off the bone ribs, which are always great and the Carrot Cake with a warm frosting. Large portions, attentive service and friendly environment. I have always counted on J. Alexander for a consistent meal
