Excellent meal. We started with soft shell crab and the squash bisque. We split the Filet with Gorgonzola butter and the scallops. All very good.
Cocktails were excellent. Tuna and wife's filet were both outstanding. It was wife's birthday so they put a candle in the slice of cake we ordered.
The menu was good and food was excellent. Service was exceptional. Nice quant and quite restaurant for a evening meal with a special person.
Wonderful food and service! So much to choose from but loved the soft shelled crab and seared scallops. Also enjoyed the grouper special.
Food was excellent, service was really great too. Would definitely go back !
Alexander’s is one of the best if not the best in Roanoke. The food is outstanding, the service is superb, and the ambience excellent. It is our go-to restaurant for an outstanding dining experience. We always feel welcome there.
What a gem!
Incredible food and ambiance.. We’ll definitely return.
Very helpful server, loved the environment of the dining room and the food was satisfying, flavorful and perfectly portioned
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?
However, it was my first time INSIDE a restaurant since March. I chose Alexander’s for this special event!
The two of us enjoyed celebrating a birthday dinner at Alexander’s. Our meal was delicious, especially my crab cakes. Service was also excellent. The decor and furnishings is more attractive to an older generation but still elegant and clean.
Always a treasure! The combination of excellent food, service & smiles amkes for a lovely evening.
Fantastic fresh creative dishes! Excellent staff! We love it.
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!
Food and service was excellent as always. I have gone to every nice restaurant in Roanoke. Alexander's is always dependable and their food is always great.. We ordered several times to go during the Pandemic and we found they did the best job dealing with to go orders verses their competitors.
Always fabulous & fresh cuisine served by professional & courteous staff. Our favorite.
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
