Everything was perfect as always.

We planned ahead of time and made a reservation since we have our 80 year old grandmother with us. When we arrived, we were told that we would have to wait another 10 mins, 10 mins later another 10 mins. 45 mins and we are still waiting...

Instead of apologizing for there delay, the front staff told us "you can either wait outside or grab a drink at the bar, but you cannot sit by the table (pointing at he table closest to the window)". Mind you, my grandmother is 80 years old, there was no regard whatsoever that there was no way she'd be able to climb onto a barstool.

While we waited, no water was offered to us. No check in. This is the kind of establishment you don't want to come if you want to eat when expected and want to be treated like a patron.

I was celebrating my birthday with family and friends. Everything was perfect. We sat outside- the weather was really warm but there was heat lamps too. One of my favorite movies was playing while we were eating too. Everyone enjoyed their food too and the service was spot on.

We have dined at Alexanders many times and each time has been great. The Italian menu selections are expansive and every dish we have tried has been wonderful. This time out we were celebrating our adult son's birthday with his brother. My lasagne was perfect and the birthday boy's lobster ravioli was delicious. We have eaten both inside and on the patio and have never been disappointed. We highly recommend Alexanders for both a casual meal as well as a special occasion.

We went for an anniversary celebration. Each of us started with a glass of wine and he the wedge salad, me the baked feta. He doesn't like garlic (or rather garlic doesn't like him) so the waitress graciously brought him plain bread, and me the scrumptious house made garlic bread. For entree, he had the spinach lasagna, and I had my favorite, the White Room pizza. His plate was clean, and as usual, I had a good deal of pizza left. This pizza is incredible. The mixture of flavors - wow. Never, ever disappoints, which is why I always end up ordering it. We were (thank you) seated near the window in a table that was semi-private, vs the ones along the long booth, where you're just a few inches from the table next to you. The evening was made even more special by being placed in Kelly's section. She was fantastic, sweet, attentive, pleasant, exuded happiness while working. We will certainly ask for her next time we visit Alexander's. I'd be remiss in not mentioning the rest of the staff there. Everyone works as a team, and that way the diner never feels neglected. Great evening, as usual.

The evening was excellent in almost every way. The menu provided a wide variety of offerings, which was then enhanced by two specials of the day. The restaurant was very busy on on Monday evening, but staffing levels seemed to be able to meet the needs of the diners. Our meal came rather quickly, all arrived at the same time and all were good and hot. Very pleased with the entire experience.

For making the reservations the same day, the accommodations were perfect. Understanding that other people had made the reservations days before and we still got in in a timely manner was worth the wait. The hostess went above and beyond to make our dining experience worth coming back. My partner had been there once and this was my first time and I was elated by the atmosphere and the service. We got two glasses of wine for free and Tiramisu for defending the hostess while a rowdy customer was trying to be seated with her child.

We met friends here for a Saturday night dinner. We had reservations and we were seated immediately. The positive points to the restaurant was a friendly waitress and fairly good food.
On the negative side, the noise level was huge and we had very aggressive bus boys who hovered practically over the table and wanted to take your plates as soon as you had your
last bite (in one case they actually grabbed a plate before my spouse was finished!). I am guessing it was because of the crowd that had formed out the door and they wanted us to
give up our table as soon as possible. So for those reasons, I cannot recommend this place for a relaxing meal out with family and/or friends.

After a bad experience I took the time to email the manager directly. I did not want to write a negative review. It’s been 3 days and I have not received any message back. I do not believe that they care about their bad service.

We have gone to Alexander's before and have never been disappointed. It was a very cold night and we were hoping to get a table inside, which we requested when we walked in and were immediately given.
We love the ambiance of the place, it is very pretty and romantic and the food is rich and flavorful.

Arrived on time and we were seated promptly. Our server, Kelly, was nice. She introduced herself and told us to take our time on looking over the menu. When she came back, she told us the specials and we proceeded to order. Food took a while but we weren't in a hurry. I actually appreciated the fact that everyone around us were having actual conversations and not on their phones. It seems like time slowed down at Alexanders. People were really enjoying themselves. As for the food, my wife ordered the Tuscan Seafood pasta. It was delicious. I could taste the sea with every bite that she shared with me. As for me, I love pizza, so I ordered the ? I actually forgot the name! It was ok, nothing to rave about but for me, the best part was the whole cloves of garlic that was on top of the pizza. It was different, but really stood out. Would love to come back here again and try a different kind of pasta!
