    We decided to stop in Roanoke in the middle of a long road trip. Alexander’s ended up being a top highlight of our entire trip! From the service to the food, everything was top notch. The ambiance is sophisticated and relaxing with staff working as a team to make sure you enjoy every aspect of your visit. Every bite we took was delicious and you could tell was prepared with a high level of skill and passion. If you are in Roanoke, dinner at Alexander’s is a must!

    Best restaurant in Roanoke! A nice variety of food offerings and it’s all out-of-this-world delicious. I have tried the shrimp with cream truffle sauce, Etouffee, and fillet of beef with Gorgonzola butter and they are all served to perfection. The chocolate glaze and lemon tart are my favorites desserts. All the staff are extremely kind and attentive. We are lucky to have such a fine restaurant in Roanoke.

    Very disappointed! We have been in the past for special occasions & loved it but this time maybe because it was Restaurant week & we got the special, well nothing was special.! The Va crab soup had no flavor, it was thin & watery. The reconstructed beef Wellington was ok but they need to figure our the pastry puff as it was hard in the top & soggy on the bottom & i kid you not we got ONE tablespoon of mashed potatoes & ONE sliver of a carrot & ONE green bean. The only thing good was the desert. Our waiter who was getting 22% tip from the get go, acted like he could have cared less if we were there. So no we will not be going back nor will we recommend to anyone else & we will share our experience with others. $206.00 may not be much in there eyes for a meal & i don't mind paying good money for a delicious meal & service but they missed the boat on this one.

Alexander"s is one of the premiere catering operations in the Roanoke/SW Virginia region, offering full service for cocktail parties, private dinners, receptions and similar events in our private Gallery Dining Room. We are also a very popular choice for guests and groups staying at Hotel Roanoke who seek an off-site location for receptions and dinners for business functions, reunions and wedding rehearsal dinners. We can provide auditorium style seating for meetings and seminars. In addition, Alexander's is the go-to place for top quality carry-out cuisine for office and home entertaining.
