The best carrot cake, ever! The scallops are perfect. The Prisoner is the best price point I’ve ever seen. Great place in Oak Brook. Great, friendly people.

My date and I enjoyed the food. Except my potatoes were cold and the drinks were very weak. The server kept forgetting things we asked for with our dinner and wasn't financially compensated for the mistakes but they were extremely busy so I didn't complain much. Overall it was ok. Not really worth the money in my opinion.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I loved it. They had a steak kabob and I asked if I could have chicken instead and they were amazingly accommodating. I really liked that our server used my name when she came back to the table. Never had that and I loved it!! Great food and service and I would absolutely go back again!!

The reason for a less than favorable reply was we specifically asked for a quiet booth in the main dining area and they wanted to seat us in a booth right next to the bar. I told the individual that wasn't what we requested so asked for another booth he looked over his shoulder and said I don't think we have one! So,I said could you walk to the upper level as this is not what we requested. He did find one. I think they need to look on the original reservation (that I booked well in advance) and fulfill that request. The food & service was great .. but they got off on the wrong foot with us ...trying to seat us a noisy area, when that didn't match our request.

The place was much bigger than I expected. I really love the lighting, it's a darker more private intimate setting. The food smells & tastes delicious, particularly the mac & cheese . The NY Strip steak was tender but the Maui Steak was more flavorful. The chocolate cake with ice cream was perfect, its a good portion with very deep rich chocolate. I look forward to trying other food on the menu like the burgers, chicken & ribs & other sides

The food was good and our server was friendly and competent. The problem was that we had a 6pm reservation and didn't get seated until 6:30pm. Not terrible, but this was a Sunday night (not real busy). They said the table for 6 that they had for us had a group that took a long time to leave. But other large groups came in and were seated much quicker. Perhaps we could have been seated at a different table? Anyway, we did get 2 free appetizers and everyone was very polite about all this.

We had a great meal and a great time. Our server Mark was excellent, very accommodating, letting us just sit and talk. He was very pleasant as well.
Have only eaten at this location once but it was great. Each had the Alex salad and split the French Dip. They also brought a great piece of carrot cake as we were celebrating a Birthday.
Overall a wonderful time!!

When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated quickly. Unfortuantely, the window we were sitting by was a bit drafty. We were seated again after a short wait but we were very fortunate to have a very nice young lady(Melissa) take care of us. Our celebration was terrific and the evening went very well.

Thank you J. Alexander Oak Brook.

Our filet kabobs were excellent. There was an underlying taste that added so much to the meat and the rice. Service was excellent, especially considering it was a very busy evening. The chocolate cake for dessert was the perfect end to an excellent meal.
