Thank you for a nice dining experience. The waitresses even laughed at my two, loud little kids, and our waitress brought out extra croutons because my youngest was loving the ones on my salad.

It made the whole evening a pleasant and fun evening with great food and great ambiance! We have our favorites on the menu, but love all the choices given on the daily specials.

It is one of our favorite places to dine! Love J. Alexander's!!!

The waitress and manager were both more than accommodating when I had a nightmare experience with my debit card, due to some fraud, it was being declined. They were kind, and were going to allow me to return to pay them. I got it worked out but I wanted to make reference to this specific occurrence because it spoke so loudly to the type of restaurant and employees that they have.

The food was delicious, and I have never been disappointed with this place.

We eat here every 6 weeks +/- . Food is Good, simple things could make it better for me.
Appetizers: Selections are very limited; Deviled eggs?why,
and couple of dips. I would love to see some type of stuffed Mushrooms, sliders or meatballs etc. Fries at a steak place should be Steak Fries.
I love the Israeli CousCous, but it has too much Pepper and heat for me. I wish They would put the pepper and heat on just prior to serving so, the option for heat can be
left out

The food looked good, but it didn't taste good. Even the burger wasn't good. Price was high for below average tasting food. Menu was interesting. I wish the food would have lived up to expectation. Also, it was very cold in the restaurant. Huge air vents blow cold air which makes it very uncomfortable.

We enjoyed our dinner. But, there was cool air blowing down from the ceiling most of the time we were at our table. This was distracting and uncomfortable to both of us the entire dinner. I wore my coat over my shoulders while trying to eat my food. The pumpkin pie was amazing !!

We have a group of 4-5 couples who periodically go out for dinner & have been doing this for over 10 years. Our experience at J Alexander’s was excellent! From being seated on time, to the table service, to the food and drink, a most delightful night out. Make sure you read the daily specials, as I had a pan encrusted trout dish that was reasonably priced and excellent. Our entire group enjoyed their entrees. We will go back again!

I love J Alexanders/Redlands Grill! We always have consistently good food and service. We ate there the other night, and I had the Shrimp Louie salad. It was delicious. It is easy to carry on conversations in the restaurant and the darkness lends to coziness.

Everything was generally good; the only exception was the chocolate cake which was inedible. Ordered 2 slices to take home for our grandchildren and us- they were cold and much too dense to eat. We had to toss them away after we tried them. This was the only low point.

We’ve ate here about 3-4 times and each time it declines. Ordered prime rib and it was cold and had hardly any flavor. My wife had steak and it was very fatty. Hate to say but the best part was the fries and Caesar salad. Don’t think we will be back unfortunately.

We have been to J. Alexander's several times over the years. This past year, every visit seems to get worse. We were seated on time but had to wait 10 minutes before a server showed up to our table. It took another 10 minutes for drinks. Our food showed up and my steak was over cooked but the broccoli was very good. My wife's pasta had way too much sauce on the pasta. The seafood was limited in quantity. My wife couldn't eat the pasta and left 95% on the table. I had to wait 10 minutes for the server to show to get me a refill on my drink. It was a bad experience and it's a shame because we use to really like dining at J. Alexander's Cincinnati.

Usually J.Al’s is a go-to for me for business lunches. Friday was awful. It took longer than 10 minutes to even get a drink order (we stopped counting), let alone to get a drink. We tried making eye contact with someone serving next to us, and he either “didn’t see us” or blatantly ignored us. That was until I said to my guest “Are we invisible?” Then he stopped over and sent someone over. I cannot speak for him but he seemed to be ignoring us several times throughout the experience. The service was slow. Everything we requested to be on the side came on the meal. Our refills were swapped, yet no one would visit us. Therefore, my Diet Coke craving was not satisfied with my regular Coke. I honestly am a great topper and left a bad tip for these reasons. I don’t even know who our server was. So many different people stopped or were flagged down by us. Therefore, I have no idea who to discuss the issue with as I don’t know with whom the fault lies. This was extremely disappointing form a recurring customer.

We usually have an AMAZING experience and so when we made a reservation for my husband’s birthday, I️ wasn’t worried. Then we were seated....we have two different servers come to take our order, we waited over 10 minutes for drinks because of broken glass in the ice container, the server continued to call a Manhattan a Martini (only because he order it up). I️ ordered the Prime Rib medium...usually its perfect. This was over done and dried out. I️ was pleasantly surprised that they were offered my husband a “birthday dessert” on the house, however it wasn’t something my husband would eat. When he mentioned that he couldn’t eat that specific dessert, the server just said “ok” and left the table...on other occasions, they have offered other options of that occurred. We hope this was just an off night and not a sign of further things to come.

Service and ambiance was outstanding as usual! Never had a food complaint until we ordered the pork chops. They were very, very bland and watery. Cooked to perfection, but zero flavor even with the apple glaze sauce they pour over it. This is the first time out of MANY visits that we were disappointed in our food. Its definitely not going to keep us from dinning there again, as everything is usually 100% on the mark!
