I love this restaurant! I enjoy the food and service. Only problem with last visit is that we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. There was no comfortable place to wait since the bar was overflowing. I guess everybody else loves it too.

We go there often, but this time was not up to par. They couldn't wait to take our order, but we wanted to enjoy our drinks first. Once we gave the order, it was a long time till they delivered our appetizer. Eventually we got our food, roast beef sandwich, 2 fish dishes, and roast beef, all which were good. Our dirty plates sat in front of us a long time. This is unusual service for this local place. Maybe just a bad night or waiter

Always consistent. I had the ahi tuna salad and it was good as usual. My 3 dining companions had the salmon which was fine as always. It was very noisy and hard to hear conversation.

My wife has a sensitivity to garlic and specifically told the waitress to tell the kitchen not to put garlic in her order. When her fish came there was a cup of tartar sauce on the side. When my wife asked if there was garlic in the sauce she was told that they would check and came back and said yes there was garlic in the sauce. Why did they bring it? If she couldn't handle garlic on her fish why would she want a sauce with garlic? Bad communication with the kitchen.
Also told a long time to get waitress' attention to get some water. She was not attentive to our table.
Like it there and will go back but tonight could have been a dietary mishap.

THE FOOD WAS GOOD, THE SERVER WAS GOOD, THE ONE ANNOYING THING ABOUT HERE AND IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME IF YOU ARE THERE AFTER 8PM. WHILST STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF DINNER. THE STAFF START CLEANING WHICH MEANS MOVING TABLES BOOTHS, ETC ETC GENERALLY MAKING A RACKET, DUSTING , SPRAYING, BANGING. I DON'T FEEL THE TIME OR PLACE FOR THAT IS RIGHT NEXT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE DINING AND WHILE THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO HAVE CONVERSATION AND ENJOY THEIR EVENING.

The food was awesome. Visiting Florida for a wedding and celebrated my birthday. We loved it so much we went back before we left. The steak madiera stole my heart. We have several J. Alexander's in Ohio. The closest is in Cleveland. The servers were awesome. Definitely would recommend this restaurant!¡

Was very happy with our meal. I have always avoiding going there because of the clientele. It tends to be more snowbird and we are locals. The only reason we went was because I could make reservations on Open Table and my husband wanted a cheeseburger. The restaurant is within walking distance of my house. Will go again but after season is over. They seated us as soon as we arrived and our service was great.

We had a great evening with friends. As usual, the service was outstanding. Our waitress was prompt as well as helpful with menu and drink suggestions. The food was appreciated by all.
Two of us ordered the salmon which was cooked to perfection in accordance with our request.
The four of us shared appetisers and were pleased wth our order. All in all a super, unrushed,
Saturday night experience.

Reliably above average food and good service. Very professionally run. A bit pricey but the quality warrants it. Noise level is higher than I like so it’s not a place for quiet conversation. Possibly not as loud at other times. Really terrific prime rib dinner And the same prime rib beef is also available sliced very thin for a sandwich and almost the excess fat is removed before slicing. Had both on two different visits and it’s now my favorite. Both times ordered it with perfect baked potato (with all the trimmings). Presentations are attractive, too.

Too pricey, no space at bar to have a drink while we WAITED 20 min for our table, which we had a reservation for. I don’t understand high-end uppedy establishments. Service was really good, and food was really good but not worth those prices. Also waiting with a reservation, c’mon.

We were seated quickly and we're provided drinks in a timely fashion. Our server, Andrew, was knowledgeable and polite. Our food arrived really quickly, which was somewhat surprising. My wife's first experience with the carrot cake, which she loved! A wonderful evening, and I knew it would be based on my past lunch experiences at Jay Alexander's.

J Alexander's is our (hubby & me) favorite "go-to" restaurant. The service is outstanding and food is always fresh and delicious. We especially like that we don't have to pay a la cart for everything. When you order a meal, it comes with sides! The kale salad, baby back ribs and shoe string fries are my favorite things to order!

Not one of best experiences at one of our favorites. Felt very rushed. In fact our waiter asked if we wanted dessert before one of our party finished her me. And then brought the check while she was still eating. Food was excellent. We frequent this place and have had an off night but the good outweighs the bad.

We found the staff to be inattentive. We had to flag them down for drinks, they never checked on us during the meal at the bar. It was clear that they focused on the regulars exclusively. We wanted to like the place as the bar and atmosphere is great. Maybe just a bad night but it was not top service at all.
