We have eaten at Alexandra
We have eaten at Alexandra several times, and have always been thoroughly delighted with the food, the atmosphere, and the service. We typically have the calamari as an appetizer, and the gnocchi and scallops for the entree. They've always been perfect!

A wonderful authentic neighborhood
A wonderful authentic neighborhood spot with attentive service and excellent food. My only complaint is that selection of wine by the glass is not great. Should be better to match the quality of food

Cozy and intimate - the best
Cozy and intimate - the best type of NYC neighborhood-y place. Great menu, strong wine list and incredibly nice/personable staff. After a long day at work, Alexandra is the best type of place to go for a relaxing dinner.

Lovely Girls Dinner
My friend and I dined here after not having seen each other for months. It was the perfect venue for our catch up discussions and we were there for three hours. Mia, our server, was perfect in regards to one, knowing the food but two, knowing that we wanted to catch up and chat and she gave us space to do that. The food was very good, as is the wine. The bartender was also a star making sure we got the perfect table after the current occupants were finished. All in all - a great night with an old friend, terrific food and wonderful service! I will be back and I highly recommend.

lovely lunch during a midday lull.
arrived to completely empty space at noon. Food was excellent, had tender, delicious calamari, better than average coffee (though no free refills) and scrumptious pineapple rum cake. Sat with my girlfriend for 2 hours and laughed a lot. Comfortable and easy seating, though if it had been full, those tables are very close to each other...

A sweet spot
This is an unassuming restaurant that takes care to deliver an enjoyable experience. No pretensions and very relaxed.

Excellent, fresh, quality
Excellent, fresh, quality ingredients, great chef, organic grass fed hamburgers, perfectly seared scallops. Friendly relaxed atmosphere, although sophisticated with a touch of romance. Went first with my husband which was romantic. Went second time with 8 girlfriends and we all had delicious food and were all very happy there. We came 1/2 early for our reservation AND added 3 people to our original reservation and the wait staff was accommodating and handled the whole thing with grace. Love this place. Please don't tell anyone!!

A Perfect Meal
This place is a small hole in the wall in the Village, but go ahead and set your expectations high. Their food and menu acumen immediately impress. A butternut squash and coconut soup was to die for. The pork chop was amazing. I tried a bite of my friend's calamari and want to return to enjoy it for myself. Dessert tasted homemade and simply delicious. Also, the restaurant was empty when I arrived, but nonetheless, I noticed the manager turn away several walk-up customers just after I arrived . Sure enough, shortly thereafter, the restaurant was packed with a full house of reservations. Smartly, management kept the restaurant just a few seats shy of capacity and clearly knew how to honor reservations and manage a full house. All good!
