Alexander’s Restaurant is a hidden jewel in the heart of Naples. Chef Alexander Bernard has been serving his distinctive cuisine to Neapolitans and visitors from around the world for more than 23 years, and has an avid following. His innovative, farm to table organic dishes reflect his annual California sabbaticals and his traditional European training.
The Johnson & Wales graduate is known for menu favorites such phyllo-wrapped fried shrimp, macadamia nut crusted grouper, and seafood risotto with chunks of Maine lobster, scallops and shrimp. Classics such as crispy duck with lingon berries, veal tenderloin and Steak Au Poivre share the page with pasta and vegetarian dishes. Seasonal healthful menus and Chef Alex’s sell-out cooking classes enhance the culinary offerings. A European-style dining room and award-winning garden patio accommodate diners for lunch and dinner from September through May.

I had a special 6 course meal prepared for our anniversary, did that before. I have been there sevral times before. One comment the chef should have come out to visit our table, especially since I ordered an expensive meal.

We went for Valentine's lunch. The charming patio was reminiscent of California.

The menu was a little boring and nothing geared to Valentine.

Service was very accommodating.

We had a lovely lunch in their private garden surrounded by large trees, bushes and flowers. We’ve been there at night when everything is lit up and it is like a fairytale. Oops I almost forgot about the food-fabulous. We’ve been coming here for years and it never disappoints.

Sloppy service, the food runners surly, unkempt,and called out the entrees like a low class diner not a elegant restaurant . Seemed like no manager present. We were told on Tuesday no corkage fee and waiter said , corkage fee WAS charged because it was season. They could have compromised. Will not return or not recommend unless a n adequate response from management

Based on visiting this restaurant for the past 15 years, we were somewhat surprised at the changes that have been made recently. In summary:
Still Good: food, friendly staff, service
Poor: early-bird special eliminated, large increase in prices for drinks and food

Always a delightful experience. We sat outside in the peaceful patio as the weather was outstanding. The Grouper sandwich was fresh and very tasty. John was a delightful host /server and is always very attentive and professional. We were able to visit and relax , without being rushed,
It is a great place for lunch or an intimate dinner .

Although we had a reservation at 645, we were seated at 715. It was another 1/2 hr before we even were asked what we wanted to drink! Then another-wait, 15-20 minutes for menus. The waitress was overwhelmed .
. All of our friends recommended this place for food and ambiance- we will not be back.
So disappointed.

My wife and I went with friends who have been there several times and highly recommended. Our first time. After eating in all fine dining restaurants in Naples for two weeks, this was most disappointing. Restaurant was extremely hectic but it had just poured and outside seating was not available so understandable. However had incredible difficulty understanding our waiter's accent and often felt like we were speaking different languages. I ordered steak frittes ($40) medium. The meat was completely raw inside while cooked well on outside. By the time waiter came back to check on meals, everyone else was finished with entrees and I had eaten around edge of steak and left raw core (about 60%). At that time I pointed steak out and he asked if I wanted another one. At that point, of course not. He said he would tell the chef. That was the end of it. No follow up from any one. With about a $400 tab for four, TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.

Alexander’s remains one of our favorite places to dine in Naples. The ambiance outside is unbeatable, the staff are so attentive and the food is excellent.
At our last visit, we were outside and it started to rain...In moments we were whisked inside where we received our meal. It ended up being a memory rather than a disaster, thanks to the staff...
We eat there regularly and love it.

I love the food and peaceful ambiance. Sitting in the garden, listening to jazz, enjoying a delicious salad with fresh tuna, and finishing with an outstanding lemon tart--what's not to love? I bake and the lemon tart is the best I have ever had! Service is welcoming, but not intrusive. We are never disappointed.

We had dinner at Alexander's while on a visit to Naples. We were kindly accommodated with inside/bar seating when the weather went south the night we were booked. The bar was great, food wonderful, good conversation with bar tender and bar mates. Very enjoyable evening. Note... Alexander's does now have a full bar. Open Table shows only beer and wine.

Nice Naples restaurant. With Open Table reservations under comments I will specify OUTSIDE table, however often when I check in I am told that this is optional for the restaurant., and may not be honored. Gets frustrating and makes me look at other Naples dining options, where this is not the policy..
