This was our first time here. We were pleasantly surprised. We arrived at 5 pm, were promptly seated and could choose indoors or outside. We chose inside. It is very much like an English pub atmosphere. If you arrive before 6:55 while happy hour prices are in effect, once you order a drink or wine, those happy hour prices continue all evening. Their homemade red sangria was delicious and light filled with little chunks or quite edible fruit. A real treat. Because we ordered from the happy hour menu, we all had burgers for $12 that became $19 after happy hour and they were very large and perfectly cooked and served on a brioche bun. Their french fries were outstanding. We had 2 orders for 3 and still did not finish them all. A great stop.

This was my neighborhood restaurant, not sure if it is new management or just a bad night, but the service was awful, food was mediocre and they ran out of wine and had to go buy some. They sold us $5 wine for $45. Unbelievable. I will not go back

We eat here a lot and the food is always excellent. It's been even better and more creative lately. Staffing changes and tiny kitchen can slow down busy nights but great wine list makes time ok. Really sweet young wait staff also is a charmer.

Neither main dish was very good, we had duck and pasta. Salad was good and chocolate dessert was very good. Would not go back.

Nice person but incompetent. They seem also to be charging for every extra: eggs w/out toast!?! Showed us one menu then changed it. Could not get a coffee refill for a long time. Argumnets among staff. Disappointing as i had liked this restaurant. Hope it was an aberration.

This restaurant was recommended by Le Du's Wine store on Washington St. and it is a gem of a restaurant for a small quiet dinner. Food is simply amazing, you must try the mussels and order the Scallops for your main course! Love, love, love the place! Sometimes you just want a local place and not too much of a NYC scene!

I made a reservation for a Saturday night for dinner for me and a friend, and the experience was wonderful. I beat my friend there and sat at a table outside to wait (it was cold so outdoor dining wasn't open), and the staff came out and greeted me and brought me a water. Once my friend arrived, we were seated right away. The fries were missing from my burger, but they waitress quickly corrected it and someone came out from the kitchen to check on me.

The place is small and intimately lit. Although I enjoyed it for dinner with a friend and there were several groups, I'd consider it a good date location. The food was delicious as were the drinks. I'll definitely be back.

Alexandra is a very simply decorated room with a homey neighborhood feel. Service was friendly and efficient. I had the calamari to start, which was excellent, followed by the roast chicken, very juicy and tasty if simply prepared. Portions are fair. I had a glass of Cotes du Rhone, which was fine (but they could use a list rather than having the waitress recite them all). Espresso but no dessert, and the total came to $47, a fair price I felt. Convenient walk to the Lortel theater.

Recent Valentine's Day dinner here was a delight--wonderful food and charming atmosphere. They offered a fixed price menu for the evening (although I snuck in a plate of oysters with a surcharge and was more than happy to pay up for that). Strong wine list. Great location. Book early--they are tiny and popular.

A nice storefront bistro, not large but reasonably spacious in one room. Jazz in the background. Menu is limited but good: there are enough specials to make it varied. Service is good.

We were there for dinner on Christmas. It was a 3-course price fixed meal, reasonably priced for the quality and quanity of the food. If you like calamari, be sure to order it as an appetizer. It is to die for. The prime rib was outstanding and dessert was delicious. One minor dissapointment was the bread. Perhaps there was no bread delivery on Christmas day and that would explain the basket of toast.

We had a lovely time. Thank you Alexandra!

Booked Alexandra for a party of 6; staff readily accommodated my need to change reservation. Alexandra is a lovely but very small restaurant, with about 25 seats at tables plus a bar. This throws off the ambience a bit, but the place is friendly and welcoming. My mussels appetizer and roast pig (more like pulled pork) entrée were excellent.

This place is a small hole in the wall in the Village, but go ahead and set your expectations high. Their food and menu acumen immediately impress. A butternut squash and coconut soup was to die for. The pork chop was amazing. I tried a bite of my friend's calamari and want to return to enjoy it for myself. Dessert tasted homemade and simply delicious. Also, the restaurant was empty when I arrived, but nonetheless, I noticed the manager turn away several walk-up customers just after I arrived . Sure enough, shortly thereafter, the restaurant was packed with a full house of reservations. Smartly, management kept the restaurant just a few seats shy of capacity and clearly knew how to honor reservations and manage a full house. All good!

Excellent, fresh, quality ingredients, great chef, organic grass fed hamburgers, perfectly seared scallops. Friendly relaxed atmosphere, although sophisticated with a touch of romance. Went first with my husband which was romantic. Went second time with 8 girlfriends and we all had delicious food and were all very happy there. We came 1/2 early for our reservation AND added 3 people to our original reservation and the wait staff was accommodating and handled the whole thing with grace. Love this place. Please don't tell anyone!!
