J. Alexander's - Scottsdale reviews from OpenTable diners
  • One of our favorite restaurants.

    One of our favorite restaurants. The food was always excellent as was their service. It was hard to beat. Unfortunately this ended up being the last meal we will get from them since they closed for good after we were served. Very unfortunate.

    The food at J. Alexander's is consistently very good - - the carrot cake is the best desert anywhere. The service, usually, very good would have to be downgraded to 'good' on this occasion. But, all-in-all it was a delightful lunch!

    Our requested indoor booth away from the main entrance and bar areas was ready upon our arrival at noon, Our server happily provided refills of diet coke and iced tea without asking. The food was presented in an attractive manner and it was tasty. Overall, we enjoy dining at J. Alexander's; the food and service are consistently very good.

    It was a busy Saturday night during Spring Training and we were seated immediately. The service was so fast--we almost weren't ready yet for our appetizer!! We both had salads which were very good but didn't try any entree. The prime rib sounds excellent so we will go back to try that. The carrot cake was served warm and could feed 4 people. We're going back for sure.

    Dined on 3/9/2013
    Your reservation service was GREAT and we were able to be seated immediately on a Saturday night. The food was very good. The music was a bit loud for easy conversation among a group of 4. The waiter was fairly non-interactive and gave us the impression we had out-stayed our welcome. We were visiting with good friends from out of town who we see once a year. There were other tables open, so we didn't think we were limiting the restaurants service. The waiter stopped offering refills and made no comments when leaving or picking up the check. He was a drastic change from the extremely personable waiter we had had earlier in the week at Mangioni's. Food = Great Service = so-so

    I love the oriental salad though there were fewer peanuts this time. The match stick fries were divine. The roasted rib eye was done to perfection. Even though it was quite full it was not loud which made it pleasant as we actually could hear each other. Found the deserts unremarkable, hardly worth the calories.

    pleasant greeting when entering, seated on time of reservation. routine menu with n selections luring the diner over and above normal fare. Food was brought courteously and well explained by pleasant server. Food was OK but not spectacular. Had chicken but nothing out of the ordinary. Noise level was livable but for one noisy table. A well located restaurant that will serve as a decent but ordinary meal when that is what is required.

WE HAD RESERVATIONS AND PASSED A LONG LINE OF PEOPLE WAITING FOR A TABLE. WOULD CERTAINLY BE WORTH THE WAIT THO. SPENT 6 WEEKS IN SCOTTSDALE, ATE OUT AT LEAST 5 NITES A WEEK AND THIS IS ONE OF OUR FAVORITES!

    this this upscale restaurant provides the perfect atmosphere for almost any occasion, except a romantic , quiet setting. The almost excellently prepared food is brought out hot, and with a beautiful presentation to rival any of it's competition. The only thing lacking in our experience as a family group of nine was our waitress. She was a little less than friendly and rushed us through our dinner. I kindly asked her to wait to offer us dessert until we had finished our main course. If you are fortunate enough to have one of their better servers, then this restaurant and it's delicious food is worth the experience!

    Valentine's Day. First time at J. Alexander's. Great place. Got there early for drinks which were very good. Table ready right on time. Service very good and food was great (though my filet mignon was a bit overdone). Considering the Scottsdale location I expected the price to be much higher but it was very reasonable. This is a great place to dine with friends. We traveled quite a distance to get there (about 30 miles)but we enjoyed it and had a leisurely drive home afterwards. I wish there was a J. Alexander's in Glendale.

    Every J Alrxanders I have attended had great, attentive service. This'd cation in Scottsdale disappointed us. We were ignored by our waiter after he took our order. His entire attention was with a table of 10 or 22. Our fool was late, not cooked to order and lacked additions we requested. Other waitresses noticed and 3 others stepped in to help. A little communication between staff and us could have alleviated this poor experience.

    Filet mignon w/bearnaise was very good but prime rib did not have much flavor even with the au jus. Our main server did not seem knowledgable about the menu and not very interested in ensuring a pleasant dining experience. All other servers, and there were several because all the main server did was take our order and bring the bill, were pleasant and attentive.

    Have been to restaurant several times and has been wonderful this time not so much...I brought a friend after raving about food and service and kinda fell short..our server was great, he only has so much control so was upsetting when our entree came when we had just started our salad..the only recourse from the food runner was to put up under heat lamps until ready...we decided to have then so not to ruin meal...so we laughed through that and then ordered a carrot cake to share and one to take home to my husband...they boxed both to go...instead of taking back and plating he just just plopped on plate cold(was to be served with warm cream cheese frosting). Server took one off the bill but really was disappointed for my friend.
