J. Alexander's - Oak Brook
Friday & Saturday: 11:00am - 11:00pm
Artichoke appetizer was amazing. But the service was the best thing about the restaurant.
Wonderful lunch’s and exceptional service!!! 5*
We went two days, back to back. Two very different experiences! The first day we got great service & our food very quickly. The second day, around the same time & the same food...we got ok service & it took a very long time to get our food. It was rare instead of medium rare. We ate it regardless, because we were late for a meeting. Prime rib is still amazing!
Another nice meal, politely served. We were seated right away in the location requested on my OpenTable reservation.
Birthday for friend.
This is a hidden gem. Everything is always great. If it is on the menu, it is worth eating.
Unorganized service. Ran out of rose wine, took 25 minutes to get a beer due to changing the keg and the food was not very good. Nice servers and ours comped our second round of drinks, but we won’t return. It’s really gone downhill since our last visit.
We enjoyed our lunch on the patio very much. Did not enjoy the type of music played and it was also way to loud for conversation.
This is my 3rd visit and i bring someone different each time and in turn they bring someone.the food is exquisite and the waitstaff exceptional and very accommodating.will be returning.
Our server was very accommodating. Food is always good. We would like some new items on the menu, that’s the only complaint
With so many restaurants in the Oakbrook / Lombard area the lack of people who can properly wait tables has finally impacted J. Alexander's. The previous visit the waiter forgot to place a wine order and was scarcely at the table following up through the night. Our more recent visit we were seated and no one came to the table for more than 8 minutes. (J used to use a "team" system and we were always greeted within a few minutes). This time I had to ask the receptionist if anyone was going to wait our table. To her credit she notified the manager and he came by to apologize. We were then assigned a wait person who was attentive the rest of the visit. I believe there is a wait staff shortage in the area and it is now effecting J. A's.
Other than that, the food is always great and it is a comfortable room where it never gets so loud that you can't have a conversation. Still one of our favorites.
We always have an excellent dining experience here. The professionalism and excellent food keeps us coming back. The carrot cake and Alexander salad was outstanding. The waitstaff is professional and polite. The open face kitchen experience is exceptional.
Great traditional food without breaking the bank. Prime rib is worth trying.
went Here Last weekend for my Husband birthday the food was Great And also the Drinks 🍹 good to
Series of unfortunate events
Went there for a birthday dinner. Love the ribs. My two friends had never had the ribs. They said that the ribs were fantastic and the quantity and quality were fantastic. Would reccomend
Food has always been very good. Our server sarah was excellent. Great suggestions phenomenal service. We have been here multiple times. Never been disappointed.
Another fine meal, well served. Delicious ribs. Love the pasta soup.
Great overall experience
Great white bean soup. It was very awkward when all 4 of us had soups and our 4 entrees arrived right after soup arrived. No room on table and a lot of confusion. It worked out but just a heads up
I've been going to J. Alexander's for years and have never been disappointed. Great food and service.
Great food, great service, great venue for a business lunch
Great place for meeting for lunch!!! Great food! Great service! 5*
The food was way too salty.
Love this place. Food is always perfect and never wrong
Staff was great! Would go back!!
Solid food and wine as always. Server was great. I did order salmon on my salad and it was kind of a sad piece but none the less good.
Went there with friends to celebrate upcoming marriage of child. We had a wonderful waiter - so friendly and accommodating. Food was very good. Pleasant surroundings
Very good food . Service is outstanding . Nice people .
Wow! Made reservation saying it was my son’s birthday and they made a card with the specials with his name and birthday! The manager came by and asked ‘we heard Alex is celebrating his birthday’. Made him fell very special. Also they were very informative about making food items gluten free. Great service and food!!!!
Usually meet friends for lunch. We don't see each other often (some live out of town) so it's a great meeting place. We never feel rushed and the servers are friendly. Kind of pricey but it's OakBrook - so expect it.
It was an excellent experience !
Loved the filet kabobs!
Outstanding service from their wait staff as well as the hostess when you check in! One of my very favorite places for lunch!!!They have a great menu to choose from and their portions are great size! Just tried the Chicken Cesar Salad which was outstanding!!! They have the Best Fries!!! 5* in my book!
Food was good, our waiter was very friendly and prompt! The only thing that kinda ruined the experience was that they got our reservation messed up (For a party of 2) and sat us (Party of 5) at a small/tight booth. While rite across from us was an empty table/Booth that sat up to 7, and when we asked to sit there they kinda gave a little bit of a hard time, until I said if we had to sit here (Small booth) for dinner that we would leave because of how tight and uncomfortable the seating was, then they moved us to the bigger table. That Sucked! But food and waiter service was Good!
This was one,of the best meals we had in a long time. Also portions were huge and the menu was varied enough that we all got what we wanted and loved it!!!
My husband and I have been coming to J Alexander's for almost 20 years. The service was average at best. It was Fathers Day so we expected it to be busy and loud but there was a lag in drinks and delivery of food.
My last experience was 6/17/18. I was not pleased with the food that was ordered, esp the salmon. It was very dry. The bread taste as if it was old, very crumbly. My wife ordered a steak and was very fat. She threw away most of it. This was not a good experience for us esp. on Father's Day. Please do away with the hard bread you are serving.
J. Alexanders is by far one of my favorite restaurants. The service is always outstanding and the food has never disappointed. I have one complaint. It is time to change the carpet (tiles). Usually, the floor is not something that I wold pay attention to; however, the carpet was sticky throughout the restaurant. The foot traffic over time and I'm sure the occasional spills is a result, but now you cannot even tell what color the carpeting is unless you look at the edges of like the reception desk. But more importantly, I don't expect the soles of my shoes to stick as I'm walking to and from my seat. Change the carpet J. Alexander. Change the carpet.
Great service and great food! Chris is an amazing waiter!
