Alexander's - Roanoke
Originally constructed as Roanoke's largest office supply company in the 1880s, our vintage building has been transformed into a retro chic, bohemian rendition of the classic urban restaurant of our great culinary cities. The art, furnishings, lighting, mirrors and fixtures are all found pieces of Roanoke's rich arts and architectural history. So relax and let's start making your memories at Alexander's.
Although it's a bit expensive, the top notch food and service make it worthwhile. The servers must have overheard my husband and me toasting to our anniversary, for they added candles to our desserts and wished us "Happy anniversary!" They made the evening even more special.
Absolutely love this restaurant. My girlfriend and I go every year for our anniversary. The food is phenomenal and the wait staff is second to none. Although you may have a waiter, it’s so awesome to see other wait staff taking care of everyone. They all pay close attention to all of the tables. I have never eaten anything here that wasn’t absolutely wonderful. I have some allergies and they pay close attention to that. I would always recommend Alexander’s to anyone!
Our 57th wedding anniversary could have been better if the restaurant had thought about putting folks next to a party of 10 people.
Service and food were very good.
Always a wonderful dining experience.....we love all the staff....thanks so much for such a great dinner....
Fantastic, as usual!
My partner and I were visiting Roanoke for Labor Day weekend and to celebrate an anniversary. After reading the reviews for Alexander's, we decided to check it out and reserved our table through OpenTable. Let me just say... this was one of the best meals I have ever had. Not only was the staff attentive and incredibly kind, but the food was to die for. I got the lamb and my partner ordered the duck, and WOW! If we are ever back in town, 100% going back to Alexander's. 12/10 would recommend for a great dinner and an amazing experience!
Service was great but food was just okay. I have had better tasting food in other restaurants.
This is arguably the best restaurant we have in Southwest Virginia. The food quality is outstanding, the menu's diversity excellent, and the service is outstanding. Alexander's is well worth a visit!
We eat at Open Table restaurants all over the US and Alexander's is exceptional. This was our second time here and it was excellent both times. Bjorn runs the house, knows the food and is very personable. The menu is creative both in preparation and presentation. Highly recommended.
I had been to Alexander’s with my wife once and we loved it. The night before dropping my daughter at Va Tech as a freshman engineer, I wanted to show her the best of Roanoke. We however had no business casual clothes - we’re her moving into a dorm after all!
The staff of Alexander’s was gracious and welcoming.
The food was fabulous just like our first visit. Creative and the highest of quality. I’m a frequent/adopted New Orleans visitor and the New Orleans tastes are outstanding.
Thank you for being so kind and so good at what you do!
Great place food and staff
Outstanding food and service as usual, good crowd so a little noisy but not bac.
Fabulous dinner! I hadn't been there for 12 years and the food and service were every bit as good as I had remembered--rare in the restaurant business. My friend was there for the first time--we will definitely be returning!
We enjoyed the blueberry margaritas! Best cocktails we have had in Roanoke!
My wife had the filet and I had the mixed grill, very good! Bjorn and his staff gave us excellent service from the time we arrived until we left.
Always outstanding, never disappoints. Best Restaurant in Virginia in our opinion.
We had clients in from California and dined at Alexander’s after an all-day meeting. What a great way to end the day. Boni and team did an amazing job, as usual. The food was exceptional and the service was perfect. The overall experience made an excellent impression on our out of town guests. Thanks so much!!
Outstanding, as usual!
You can never beat this place been going there for over 20 years it’s always wonderful
The food was very good (my wife's steak with pesto was truly excellent) and our server was very friendly, professional and welcoming.
Great food and service every single time. You can have great food but none any better.
Our go to place for special occasions. Superb meals, outstanding service and excellent ambiance. We’ve been coming to Alexander’s for over 20 years. Bonnie and Bjorn always provide a welcoming and friendly reception. Highly recommend!!
I love this restaurant. The food, the drinks, and the service... Awesome!
Quick weekend trip to Roanoke. Picked Alexander's based on reviews. They did not disappoint. Blueberry Margarita was excellent. Decent wine selection. Menu was diverse enough but easy to find something everyone liked. I had a mixed grill, delicious. Servers were very nice, but at times dinner moved slow. This is not a place if your in a hurry, but gives you time to enjoy a cool place with great food.
The entree was a true work of art. It delighted all of the senses.p
Alexander's was a great experience for my wife and I. Service was great, and food was excellent, we will definitely be coming back, even if for just the Blueberry Margaritas. Could hurt your wallet a bit, but with cuisine such as Alexander's, it is to be expected.........but seriously, I need more of those margaritas!
Keep up the good work, we will be back.
First time visiting Alexander’s and a wonderful experience. Have always heard such glowing reviews and they were true. Extensive menu was a pleasant surprise and our selections were delicious . Delicious desserts also. Will definitely return.
Always a treat getting to go to Alexander’s when I’m in Roanoke. The professionalism is impressive, the food is wonderful, and it’s always a lovely time.
We had not dined at this gem for several months. Our last minute reservation was worth it. We enjoyed duck and beef prepared in novel ways and we were not disappointed.
Going to Alexander's is always worth the 75 minute drive we now have to get there. Everything is perfect! Being warmly greeted and treated like old friends by Bjorn and Bonnie is an added pleasure.
Service was excellent, food was out quickly and very delicious. Will definitely dine again.
This was our (my friends and me) second visit to Alexander’s. It was just as spectacular as the first, and we will continue to make it one of our dinner spots each time we travel to Roanoke. We appreciate there is no rush to order, eat and leave. The food is second to none. The service is singularly spectacular. This is one place I would highly recommend to all living in or visiting Roanoke.
Our favorite restaurant in Roanoke. Whenever there is a birthday, and anniversary, a special occasion, or we just need a fantastic dinner, this is where we go. Nobody does it better .
We went for my Mom's 90th Birthday and that was acknowledged by the Server, which was nice. We ordered 4 different entrees and the only one that I didn't think was great was the pork chop. However, the Pecan encrusted Chicken was so flavorful. I would definitely go back as it was a great place to celebrate a Big Occasion and the service was spot on.
Alexander’s is our go-to place for birthday dinners. The food & service are always exceptional. We’ve never been disappointed.
You made our anniversary special!
Lovely dinner and location in downtown Roanoke! Attentive service and the filet was delicious and cooked perfectly.
I have never had a bad meal or experience at Alexander’s. Best restaurant in Roanoke.
Consistency is the true value of a successful restaurant and since we've been coming to Alexanders that has been the standard. we will definitely be back.
