We had a great meal at Alexanders. The service was great and the food was wonderful
Very nice intimate feeling - Highly recommend
What a gem in downtown Roanoke. Everything about Alexander's was pure class. The veal and the quail were out of this world. Extensive fine winelist and an awesome champagne cocktail rounded out our meal. Can't wait to travel to Roanoke again just so I can return there.
Great find in Roanoke. The rack of lamb and filet mignon were outstanding. We will definitely be back.
Couldn't have asked for better service and more delicious food. Everything was just beyond our expectations. Manager knew our dining companions very well from previous visits. We'll be back ... hopefully soon.
This restaurant ALWAYS has top rate service an food.
ALWAYS fabulous food! Crab cake appetizer was outstanding -- please start serving them on the weekends regularly -- they are incredible!
Service is gracious, educated, timely, and professional.
Alexander's is the best in the Roanoke Valley area!
Best food in Roanoke. Best service in Roanoke. What more is there to say.
Wonderful food & great service! Quaint, locally owned restaurant makes you feel like a VIP & serves some of the best food I have ever eaten.
We had a nice time. This was our first experience with this restaurant. The food was good. It is expensive dining...definitely more of special occasion dining. The service was good too however it was a little on the slow side. We would certainly eat here again but for an anniversary or something along those lines.
Alexander's is the ultimate dining experience.....our favorite restaurant by far!!
Excellent food and service. Waiter's recommendations were on target
Food is amazing. Seriously amazing. Will definitely go back for the food and service. The only thing lacking is the ambiance. They could spend some energy modernizing the decor. Other than that, great place, will be back.
Alexander’s never disappoints . Consistently
delicious, fresh food that is beautifully presented. We compare other area restaurants to Alexander’s but there is no comparison. The atmosphere is elegant and yet comfortable and the staff is excellent. It really is a gem and we’re fortunate to
have it here in Roanoke.
Another marvelous evening at the best place to eat in Roanoke. Attentive service, spectacular cuisine, in the most perfect of settings. A true gem every time we walk through the door.
The food and service were absolutely outstanding!!! We look forward to going there again.
Love this restaurant. Staff is excellent, food fantastic.
As always, Alexander's hit the mark. The food was wonderful, the service excellent and wine selection is reasonably priced with some nice bottles as well as per glass selections.
Passing through Roanoke and found this place. A little Parisian bistro in feel. Excellent staff and service. Food was good although portions were on the small side given the price. Duck breast was a little chewy but I ordered med rare so...Excellent desserts .
We have eaten here for special occasions over the years. It is an outstanding restaurant.
I've been in Roanoke for four years and this was "hands down" the best dining experience I've had. My way of expressing my restaurant experiences usually is "I was there once". In this case my response is " I definitely will return".
The food was delicious, the atmosphere is calm, and relaxed, and the service was attentive but leisurely. We had a wonderful evening.
Great steak and service. Food was delivered hot and just enough. Service was exceptional and never had to request anything.
We always have the best meals and outstanding service at Alexander’s. They do a great job every time.
Great menu and best service in Roanoke!
Excellent choice for white table cloth restaurant in down town Roanoke. Staff was very attentive but not intrusive. Meal was perfectly prepared and served hot. Great gin and tonic and expansive wine list. Good value for more formal dinning. Food was well presented and very tasty. We will visit again.
Everything you want when you go out to dinner. Great service, excellent food and nice atmosphere
Simply one of THE finest restaurants in Virginia
After reading so many positive reviews, I was looking forward to eating here. Unfortunately, Alexander's turned out to be quite a disappointment. I ordered the duck breast, which was advertised to come with an Asian style glaze and pickled shiitake mushrooms. The duck was to be prepared to medium temperature but came out so overdone, it resembled pork. The "glaze" was more of a gelatinous sauce. It was served with a side of lumpy mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables covered with oregano. I just don't understand any of this.
We went out for my wife's birthday. I had read reviews that their steaks were great but we had always had seafood. Both of us agreed that we had the best steak that we had had in years. The service was outstanding!!! When we want a nice meal this is top of our list in Roanoke!
The food was excellent and the service was very good! A bit pricey but a very good experience.
Superb. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable. The prices were as expected. The serving sizes were just right and everything was delicious. I highly recommend the filet marichand de vin. Très magnifique!
This restaurant is one of the best! My husband have eaten at many 5 star restaurants, particularly recently, while traveling to Miami and then back to Pennsylvania. The salad at the beginning of the meal was light and refreshing with just the right amount of dressing. The entrees were exceptional. My husband chose the Lamb Ragu, and I enjoyed the Shrimp Perez. My husband had the banana tart for dessert, and I devoured the poached pear with delight. My husband and I will have to think of a reason to return to Roanoke so we can dine at this restaurant again.
Great food, great experience, had a wonderful meal.
Alexander's never fails. Always superb menu, food, and service. Priced a bit higher than many Roanoke restaurants, but in this case, you get what you pay for!
A first class experience in every respect! Great food, great atmosphere, GREAT staff! Highly recommended.
Service was very slow. Reservation was at 6:30, we arrived on time. We had an extra person (unexpected guest) and they were rude about adding a chair to our table.
The server dropped off dessert menus but didn’t come back to see if anyone wanted anything for 25-30 minutes-the urge for dessert had passed-everyone was ready to leave. Then we had to wait for the check!
I have lived in Richmond, New York, and Philadelphia and been fortunate enough to have had some excellent meals in these cities over the years. Overall, this gem in Roanoke holds its own with my favorites in each of these towns. But none surpasses its service staff. Friendly, professional, and charming! May Alexander’s keep its kitchen going for many years to come.
Alexander's never fails to please. Excellent service, always. Food creative and delicious.
We felt the service could have been much more attentive.
