J. Alexander's - Redland's Grill - Northbrook Ratings and Reviews
Nice menu. Excellent service from our server, George. I enjoyed a grilled cod entree with (believe it or not) some delicious couscous. My date had a salad which she thoroughly enjoyed. We each had a very reasonably priced glass of wine - a chardonnay and a cab - and shared a wonderful slice of heaven commonly known as Key Lime Pie. All in all, a wonderful dining experience.
My husband and I recently enjoyed an excellent dinner at J. Alexander's . We were seated in a nice booth and although the restaurant was lively we could hear each other well. Drinks were a good pour and our waiter even brought the extra amount of Cosmopolitan that the bartender made. The fish we ordered was superb and the bread was fresh. All in all, a great meal and pleasant experience.
Steak Caesar salad was ample and delicious, good value at $17. Would have been nice if they had offered or provided rolls or bread to go with the salad.
My only issue is that theirwaitstaff always seems to rush the process. Feels like they're trying to turnover the table as quickly as possible. This has been my experience on several visits. Wish they would slow down and be more gracious.
Salads are generous, tasty and always a good starter choice. Crab cakes are superb! Beautiful large morsels of crab with hardly any binder.
Menu has many good options but could use some changes once in a while. Food is always good, but rarely remarkable.
Wine pours used to be generous but this is no longer the case. We do not appreciate the recent trend of chilling red wines.
The carrot cake has recently been cut down to 1/3 of its previous portion size. Still fabulous tasting but a major slash!
This was our first time and was very impressed especially with the crab cakes. Just moving and from being from Massachusetts would could not believe that the crab cakes were 100% crab no fillers. Also the warm Carrot cake was to die for. Very pleased with the whole dining experience.
Waiter took order and never saw him again. Had to ask for additional drinks as well as check to be delivered. I haven’t had such poor service in years. Had to ask 3 times for help from waitresses near by. First time that I left no tip for such poor service. Matthew was our supposedly server ! Terrible care for customers
Enjoyed a business meal with some co-workers. Very nice bar section if you arrive early or need to wait for a table. It is a busy place and reservations would be suggested during peak times. Food was very good with a wide range of options -- I had the Filet Kabob which was superb. My co-workers enjoyed some of the seafood and vegetarian options and were pleased as well. Nice wine list and some very good wines available by the glass. We were too stuffed to attempt dessert, but the menu did look good.
J. Alexanders is one of our favorite places to go because we know that we'll always have good service and delicious food. This time was not an exception. Adam was our waiter and was attentive, friendly and professional. Between the four of us we had the scallops (out of this world perfection!), the salmon (omg!), shrimp and beef kabobs. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The martini's were prepared exactly as ordered and tasted like another. ;-) We split a dessert of key lime that resulted in one of the guests wanting to lick the plate clean.
