About

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.

Food was creatively presented with very good flavor. We had the special lobster crepe with carrot and ginger sauce for an appetizer, my wife had Monica’s Portobello as an entree while I had the black grouper special.

Our server was John Z and he was fantastic.

For the first time in the many years we have been eating at Alexander's we were unhappy. My daughter ordered the night special-eggplant risotto with shrimp. There was hardly any eggplant and no flavor but the shrimp were excellent. The waiter offered a replacement which for some reason was turned down by my daughter. It will not stop us from rating Alexander's as one of our favorite Naples restaurants.

One of the best dining e.xperiences we've had in SWFL since relocating from CA. Service, cuisine and ambiance all top notch. Chef Alex and his team hit a home run the night we were there. Will have to go back and sit on the patio next time. It looked very inviting.
Thanks!

We all (9) enjoyed a perfect luncheon and a perfect weather day on the outdoor patio. The chicken salad got top honors! We will look forward to coming again. The seating was awkward with two round tables pushed together. A large round table would have been so much better for conversation.

We tried Alexander's for the first time. There were four of us. They have beautiful outside seating but,it has to be requested at the time of the reservation. Inside was nice but, we would have preferred outside. Everyone's meal was very good. We had one problem. I ordered the sole but requested they just grill it not bread it with flower. The chef agreed to do it but, when he completed he set it aside so they would know it was a special order. when they brought the order mine did not come. After 10-15 mins when everyone was nearly done eating their dinner I finally found the waitress who went and located it. It was excellent although lukewarm. Fish lukewarm is not the best. The flavor was really good and I did not want to send it back when everyone else was done. We will definitely give them another chance

Me and my husband dine at Alexander’s quite often. The food is absolutely wonderful and simply delicious.
We have brought many of our friends there for their first time dining experience.

I can not say enough about Alexander’s it is truly one of our favorite Resturant’s.

The waitstaff is absolutely wonderful and well trained. We like to take our time and have a leisurely dinner and the staff does not rush you.

We booked this dinner reservation on Open Table and were told Open Table booked an inside table only. Fortunately the hostess managed to seat us at a table outside which was lovely. We had previously dined for lunch here and food was good. Dinner however was just ok. Food didn’t have much taste. So we were disappointed. Also for the quality of the food a bit pricey.

As always, Alexander's delivers a solid menu and dining experience. Our party of 4 dined here on Easter and although busy, our reserved table was ready upon arrival. We ordered two of the Easter special entrees and two regular menu items. All in our party enjoyed our entree selections. Thanks again Al and staff for a wonderful meal.

Alexander’s never disappoints!!! Always great food and great service. Went Good Friday as a party of 4. We had a torrential rain earlier and despite the fact they had to scramble to make accommodations for the outside tables, the service was still wonderful even with the indoors being pretty tightly packed. Food is always beautifully prepared and exactly as hoped for. Lovely place. One of our continued favorites!

Food portions to small ... vegetable medley means one only of each micro vegetable ... curley, long-haired waiter was overworked, did not come back when we asked to take our order, nor was he there to pour our $70 bottle of wine so we did it ourselves

We had a lovely meal, however, our group was one of the first seated for lunch, and an hour later we still did not have our food. Every other table was served before we were. We asked our waiter why, but he had no answer for us. No one ordered anything unusual, or that was not on the menu.

First time at Alexander's, but not the last. We were a group of 10 - all enjoyed our food. We were seated near the bar so it was almost like a private room. Conversation was easy. The menu is varied and the food is very good. Excellent service. We will return.

Alexanders is a quiet -somewhat overlooked-lovely casual restaurant in Naples. Inside or outside are both good choices for seating. The food never disappoints and there are gluten-free and/or vegetarian choices.
