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.

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.

We spent a beautiful sunny afternoon on the patio. The many menu choices were wonderful. Two of us chose the "famous chicken salad". It absolutely lives up to its reputation. Our meal was leisurely and service was unobtrusive. It made a memorable celebration of friendships for us.

Absolutely superb! Have been going to Alexanders for 17 years and have never been disappointed. This time went for lunch and while they have sandwiches we opted to share grilled Calamari for starters after which we both had the Peppercorn Crusted Tuna which was amazing. Must go there for lunch more often!

Everyone at our table of three was dining at Alexander's for the first time. The restaurant had been recommended to me by a fellow diner when I was at a restaurant in Pennsylvania. We chose to dine outside and loved the ambiance. The menu was varied enough to appeal to everyone's tastes, and we enjoyed our entrees. The only glitch was that person who removed our dishes did not understand my request for a "doggie bag." Alexander's was generous in comping the price of my entree, which was more than I requested or expected. I am sure that we will return.

The ambience on the patio is amazing!! We had five different entrees and the presentation along with each dish was delicious. The sea bass, filet mignon and parpadelle dish along with the lamb shank were great! Go with a group so you can all share the experience of tasting different things. The wine list was a nice variety.

Always superb cuisine, excellent service and lovely surroundings! The price you pay for the level of the cuisine is certainly worth it.Meals such as these could easily cost much more because the quality of the ingredients and the creativity of the chef are both outstanding. We have been there several times in the last two years and each visit we have been served an exceptional meal!Alexander’s is a gem of a restaurant in every way!

Important to know: Booking Alexander's on OpenTable means that, by default, you are assigned to a table indoors.
The Number One reason to enjoy this very fine restaurant is to dine on their beautiful outdoor courtyard, which represents about 2/3 of the restaurant's seating, (by my guess).
So make sure you contact the restaurant directly well in advance if you want to sit outdoors.
It's well worth it. Excellent food and service. Fairly priced for the quality of cuisine and service.

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. There were 4 of us and we each got something different. All were fine, not great, with the exception of the salmon which was not. The sides given with each meal were very small quantities. We took my son and his wife for a celebration dinner and were a bit disappointed in the value for what we got. I’m not sure we would return.

I had a terrible start to my evening at Alexander’s . When we came in, albeit it was a late reservation as my friends were daring me from somewhere and raves about Alexander’s , the girls at the front desk said we could not have an outside table, nor could not seat us in the main dining room. We were seated in the bar, in a corner table (blocking’s an exit door - was that even legal ?) next to 12 people celebrating a birthday . When I asked to have another table one girl said -“well you did make a late reservation!! Ii did make a request for an outside table and do understand first come however she was a bit rude.Our server was so sweet and pleasant as was the bartender who was very personable but the party was noisy ( rightfully so as the honoree was 80) but we were sandwiched in. The servers even had a hard time getting by. So if t you name a late reservation does that mean one has to sit in a corner in the bar???? Disappointed to say the least. (Food and service excellent- don’t want yo take away from the chef and servers-!!!
