Exceptional service and food in a friendly and warm atmosphere!
It was a lovely evening
We had a party of seven and enjoyed our experience! The food was great and so was the service. Would definitely return!
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 always receive excellent service and a fine dining experience. May be a little pricey but the entrees are outstanding! Highly recommended!
First time with a larger party. The service was excellent and accommodating. The food was exactly what we've come to expect at Alexander's: superb!
It was a great experience.
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.
Great dining experience as always. Had cocktails, salad, the superb scallops and chocolate glacé s. Great ambiance, great service, great dining.
We went to Alexanders to celebrate a birthday and had a very nice time. We had the blueberry margaritas to start, always a treat. My wife had the soft shelled crab, which we have not had in a long time, and I had the grouper. Both were very good. The tables were spaced apart and the wait staff all had masks on.
Excellent food and service. This place has been here for decades and never disappoints.
Always phenomenal service and the food is the best in Roanoke. Even when we try other restaurants, we always find ourselves back at Alexander's.
First evening out over Covid issues. Table spacing was changed, servers wore masks and gloves. I was very comfortable with all aspects of the efforts made by owner and staff!
This has always been one of our very favorite destinations for special events! They are doing very well with the extreme pressures to be in business now! We support them 100%
Beautiful plates that were absolutely delicious!!!
Never Disappoints! Always a wonderful place to dine and the people are awesome!
Fabulous restaurant made all the better for the long standing, experienced, knowledgeable and caring staff. A true pleasure!
Took my folks for dinner - a great spot to ease back into going out since Covid19 hit. They are doing it smartly and safely! But the food and service are the stars of the night...simply the best soft shell crabs in the region!
Such a wonderful restaurant. Great staff and food. Especially thoughtful about my gluten allergy. Would return in a heart beat!
They took care of our group of 8 perfectly! Exceptional food and service, as usual. Everyone enjoyed their meal and praised the food, including a person in our group who runs their own restaurant. A good time was had by all. Great job!
Excellent food and lots of options on the menu. Filling meal.
Great food and service
A little more noise than usual and so the soft ambience was not there as usual
Best restaurant in town
Alexander’s has been one of our favorite spots for 8 years. We have celebrated countless occasions in their quaint dining room with delicious food and amazing service.
Delicious food and drink. Very attentive staff. Try to get the table by the front window!
Always a wonderful place to eat. Very good wait staff. Among the very best anywhere and we’ve seen many in our travels. Menu is a bit limited, but good selections and always nicely prepared.
Fantastic place to celebrate a wedding & birthday! So much love & great environment to share these festive events. We shall return!
Alexander's was wonderful. The food and service were fantastic, and Nikki and I will be back! We even received great hiking suggestions here!
Our favorite nice restaurant in the Roanoke area. This was the 3rd time we have dined at Alexander's. My wife had the Maine lobster bisque appetizer which she described as fantastic. We both ordered the Grouper special. I like the fact that a dinner salad is included with the entrees at Alexander's unlike a few of the other fine dining establishments in Roanoke. The salad included their own vinaigrette dressing. The grouper was cooked perfectly and was served on a type of corn pudding that was very tasty along with a fresh vegetable. Fresh bread was also served. The dessert mousse was yummy and perfect for two people. The wait staff are attentive, professional, and pleasant with several that have worked there for many years. Never a bad meal and you cannot go wrong when choosing Alexander's.
There was a prix fix menu at $80/person
Not mentioned on the website or when making the reservations. Food was good, not innovative. Portions were small. Not worth the price.
Alexander’s is amazing! My husband and I go on special occasions and date nights. Food, service, ambiance is subperb!
My wife and I had dinner on a Saturday evening. The meal was delicious, the waitress kept the flow from appetizer to salad to dinner to dessert going at an absolutely perfect pace. Highly recommend Alexander's
The Best in Roanoke....fabulous food and fabulous staff. Never less than great!!!
Delicious as usual. I had the veal scallopini which was prepared to perfect satisfaction. Tasty Brussels sprouts to accompany along with excellent service and wine pairing. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Our favorite Roanoke restaurant Great meal and service! Jim
Wonderful staff; cheerful and helpful. My starter and my entree, as well as the baguette were excellent. The dessert was disappointing, as it was dry cake.
Our dinner at Alexander's was the absolute highlight of Roanoke Restaurant Week. Our party explored all of the special offerings - The Mushroom Bread Pudding was delicious- real comfort food, the Squash Bisque was smooth and flavorful and the salad is always great with Alexander's signature vinaigrette. The Shrimp and Grits were yummy and the collards were a huge hit. The Tuscan Beef and Risotto was a super hearty dish, perfect for a cold night. The Pan Seared Tuna was beautiful and tasted as good as it looked. Both desserts were great - but the Lemon Mascarpone Cheesecake got top ranking. Service - as usual - was perfect. You always feel right at home at Alexander's.
Taking advantage of the Downtown Roanoke Restaurant Week. Dinner was amazing.
I thought it was presumptuous of the waiter to add an automatic 20% gratuity to the bill. There were times when we sat there waiting for our food to come out but they were pretty busy that night.
