We went there recently for dinner before a show. We were the only people in the restaurant. The music was so loud we couldn't talk. The owner/bartender refused to lower the music. We won't be going back.

Had reservations for dinner 4:30. Got a call the night before confirming reservations as we were told they were a small restaurant and wanted to make sure we were coming. When we got there we were the only party there. Was kinda cool being that it was Valentines Day!! That being said, great food and service. Bartender / waiter was very accommodating. Great selection of Bourbans!!

I came here with a group of friends on Sunday night for dinner and live jazz. We arrived early enough for the cocktail hour which had a great selection of drinks and small plates to choose from. For dinner I had the paella which was cooked to order and delicious. The seafood in the dish was cooked perfectly and went along very well with the seasoned rice. I also had a taste of the steak which was also very good and cooked perfectly. I would have liked to try the mussels which I saw other guests eating but just did not have enough room! I will have to order the next time I come. Blue Rhino jazz is not to be missed! We will be back again.

We arrived and were seated in an empty dining room with a blaring radio that we were told could not be lowered in volume. We decide to eat outside where there several other tables with people. Perhaps they couldn't handle the noise either. It was 5:15 and we had a 7:00 curtain. While discussing the menu and appetizers I told the waiter we needed to finish eating by 6:30. He hinted that we might skip the appetizer. One of our party got her meal at 6, the rest about ten minutes later.
My wife then went inside to the rest room which she was told was not in working order.

We passed the restaurant after theater and saw that most of the outside tables were filled. Perhaps a loud inside radio does wonders for the outside street scene.

We enjoyed our meals and were charmed when the owner refilled our glasses and later hailed us a cab in the rain. Like visiting a friend's house for dinner!

Had such an unpleasant experience here. Inexperienced waitstaff. Music too loud. Rickety tables and chairs. Would neither come back not recommend.

Really excellent food every time I have been there. But the music is so loud inside that conversation is a chore, even at lunch. I have had trouble ordering because of this. When the wait person could not hear to take the order, I asked if the music could be lowered. Apparently the owner insists on the level. So go when you can sit outside.

Nice, but the waiters should provide more accurate information about the dishes.

I was expecting more from this place based on other reviews. Perhaps it's better at dinner. Went for brunch on a Sunday and we were put on a table too small with not enough space to sit around without getting in the way of the front door, which meant the whole meal wasn't very relaxed.

I'm obsessed with Huevos Rancheros and two of us ordered that but it was disappointing - dry, not much flavour. Third person ordered caesar salad, which was fine. The food was not awful by any stretch, just not great and so I don't feel compelled to go back, which is a shame as clearly it can be awesome! The service was very good and staff are super friendly.

We had such a great time at Alexandra. The food was great and the service was even better. We would absolutely go back- especially with a group. Must order the brownie desert!

The service was outstanding and the waiter paid close attention to all details. The wine list was not extensive. Listened to wonderful jazz while eating.

Alexandra's is a lovely looking restaurant, but the wait staff were all preoccupied on their cell phones, our order was all mixed up and didn't come out all together. My own entree was almost cold by the time my friend's entree came to the table. It was very disappointing.

The food was delicious, the service ok, but the loud jazz music made the whole experience very disappointing. Our group of 4 asked for the music to be lowered a bit and we were told no, even the bartender/manager came over and told us the music could not be lowered. He told us there is a reason the music is at a certain level, but he wouldn't tell us why (!). You can imagine how frustrating that was. Anyway, it put a real damper on the night, conversations weren't easy as the music was so intrusive. I guess it's best to sit outside at this restaurant.

Alexandra for me is the anchor restaurant on Hudson Street in the West Village. The beautiful authentic French outdoor cafe wicker seats seduce you to come sit down and enjoy a meal and fine glass of wine. Their Burrata and Peaches salad is off the hook amazing and I think I can confidently say that they serve the best calamari in New York. Their fish specials are always amazing and their scallops in risotto is a great main course on their menu. If you enjoy a great desert, their key lime cheese cake is spectacular. Then finally at the end of the meal if you enjoy espresso coffee, I can honestly say that their espresso is best I have ever had in New York City. For breakfast, lunch, happy hour or dinner, an excellent choice.

I brought six friends, and was completely baffled at the poor level of service, respect, and quality of food. First off, I called ahead to add one more to the reservation, but table was not set properly upon arrival. It took the waiter thirty minutes to locate enough menus, and tell us that there was no wine list. The waiter told us about the dismal wine selection - and we ordered a few bottles, having to ask on pricing. We are all respectable adults, living in New York and should not have to wonder whether we are buying a $40 or $140 bottle of wine. Wine was warm when brought to our table - and waiter would not get us a fresh bottle. The food was mediocre at best, and a sad excuse for West Village casual dining at this price point.
