We were able to walk to Alexander's from our hotel. We were greeted promptly and taken to our table. The tables are arranged perfectly to maintain social distancing requirements. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about all dishes on the menu. She helped us make our dining decisions for the night. The food was amazing. Crab cake appetizer was my favorite but I love crab cakes and this one had zero fillers. The steak with gorgonzola was my entree and my wife ordered the pecan encrusted chicken. Both were delectable. We shared all night.
There was great conversation between tables, good wine and great food. I am so glad we dined at Alexander's.

We have been dining at Alexander’s going on a quarter of a century. They have perfected everything possible to create a lovely dining experience. There is no other Restaurant quite like Alexander’s in Roanoke Virginia. I’ve been to the finest restaurants in New York, Washington DC and San Francisco and the staff at Alexander’s is as superb as any I’ve ever seen. When visiting family in Roanoke we never miss having dinner at Alexander’s.

Food was excellent. But had an experience when before food was served a waitress knocked over full water glass onto table and my lap. We offered to change tables but owner doubled a tablecloth and placed over soaked end of table and provided napkins to dry off my pants. Waitress did offer her apologies. If you were owner/manager what would you do?

Dinner was delicious! BBQ Shrimp appetizer is so good that we used all the bread to soak up the butter sauce. Our entrees were cooked perfectly and I can't wait to have the scallops again. Their desserts are fantastic! As if that is not enough the service is impeccable! Their team makes you feel so special and pampered, like a guest in their own home. We look forward to returning!

This was our second time dining at Alexander’s. It definitely a place to go for special occasions or when you’d like a more formal dining experience. The restaurant is elegant and quiet. Easy to have dinner conversation. The waitstaff works as a team and attend to every need before you even ask. The food was outstanding and nice selection of wines. We had the crab cake appetizer and hands down best crab cake my husband or I have even had! I also felt COVID precautions were executed well and taken seriously. We ate inside but tables were well spaced.

We cannot rave too highly about every aspect of this restaurant. The food was amazing, service impeccable, and the dining beautifully decorated and soothing. From the crab cake to the complimentary salad to our entrees of chicken and shrimp with corn and tomatoes, we loved everything about our meal. Last, but certainly not least, was the very interesting wine list. We've been searching for Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc and were thrilled to see it on the menu. We only wish we lived closer.

I'm saddened that I cannot give this restaurant only a 5 star. That measure alone puts this restaurant in the same class as others, when it is clearly better food than any other establishment in Roanoke.
