We went here for a party and it was not good.
The steaks are very small for the money.
The ribs are over cooked.
The place is way overpriced
Not going back
My food was barely luke warm. It was prime rib and mashed potato, no veggie, no rolls, nothing extra. For $28, I expect better.
J's never disappoints. Great food and drinks. We had a new server so service was not as "spot on" as I am use to. Fortunately, the servers who were working in the area were able to pick up some of her slack.
Great food. Favorite restaurant! Crab cakes are the best!!
Always an outstanding evening spent at J. Alexanders. It has been the place to be for me and all of my business associates for many years. Thank you for the continued great service.
Great! Love the crab cakes!
Was seated and noticed a considerable draft in our booth. Mentioned it to our waitress and she passed it in on to management. After 2 more complaints, manager come over and said they “turned up the heat”. We ended up wearing our coats during dinner. The waitress was very apologetic and service was good but really thought we should have been reseated (there were several open tables) but that was never offered. Poor management in my opinion
Great food and service. Will be back!
As always very consistent. Great Caesar salad.
Food was excellent and service was great!
I was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant! !!
The place wasn't bad but wasn't very memorable either. Nothing all that unique and the menu was typical of these types of places. They charge an aggressive but still in the ballpark and try to pass themselves off as high-end dining and perhaps it is for some or those without much experience. The food was good but again nothing memorable.
Lovely waitress (ty), gave us space to talk, food was done as we requested. A fun dinner for two old fruends
We were extremely happy with our dinners, our service and our overall experience!! George was very friendly and personable!!! We will definitely be back soon!!
I like the restaurant well enough, the menu is fairly good and the food is very good. But I have a complaint about the way our reservation was handled today.
I made a reservation for a party of two for noon and was on track to arrive 10 minutes early. My friend arrived 20 minutes ahead of me. The hostess would not seat him until I arrived.
I think that's a stupid policy, especially to apply it to someone who made a reservation through OpenTable.
Had I been the one to arrive first and been told I couldn't be seated while waiting for my friend, I would have left.
My friend took it in stride and because we had an otherwise enjoyable meal, I will give Alexander's one more chance. But this kind of customer service ticks the ever-loving bejesus out of me.
Food was good and reasonably priced
Excellent food and service! Have never been disappointed with this place. Always consistently great!
Wonderful food and great cosmo. We had the best server who chatted with us and made our experience even better
Will definitely go back again.
I made a reservation about a week ago. We showed up and they wanted to put us in a booth in the bar, because the server was "next up". When we objected, they sat us in a booth closest to the kitchen. There were a number of booths away from the kitchen and bar, but apparently those servers were not "next up"
I think the restaurant should be more concerned with the patron's comfort, rather than what server was "next up".
Great evening with friends!!
Always great food and fast service. I work nearby and this is a great place for a special lunch.
Tues 11/20 1pm reservation, seated promptly, friendly front staff. Convenient location. Lively atmosphere, Great food & service. Another enjoyable business meal.
Solid experience. Enjoyed it.
Asked for quiet "romantic " booth, got a bioth near cold drafty front door at the bar area.
This is without a doubt the best restaurant in the northern suburbs. We use to like to go into the city to dine but why when you have the best in NORTHBROOK. Food, service and atmosphere are a10+.
I had the prime rib sandwich which was perfection. The prime rib was a the perfect med-rare, tender and flavorful and large enough for a hardy meal. My wife had the French dip that was equally excellent. I found the wine list to be stocked with very approachable selections. We had the Sebastiani Cabernet Sonoma Valley at $35.00. This is a great wine with red meat. The service was excellent, knowledgeable, attentive while easygoing. This was our first time at Redland’s as we were in Chicago for just a few days.
Very pleasant staff. Excellent service. Very professional but not "stuffy" or "robotic". Excellent choice of dishes. Great architecture and decor. Very pleasant atmosphere.
Great - perfect!
Great food and service!
Enjoyed our birthday celebration dinner although no complementary dessert was offered
Our entire table was pleased with their meals, service and restaurant. Staff is professional, & we were quickly seated even though the restaurant was packed. I definitely trimme recommend it and will return again.
Wonderful food and service
I didn’t give 5 stars for overall because we were celebrating my fiancé’s birthday and usually they provide a birthday dessert. We were not brought or offered the birthday dessert so l ordered a dessert. After I inquired about the birthday dessert we were told they did provide a birthday dessert but the one we ordered was not the one they offered. The problem is had they brought what they usually bring for birthdays to the table like they usually do, we probably would of been fine with it. I felt insulted.
The food and the service are outstanding. Our favorites are the prime rib and fried shrimp. The grilled artichoke appetizer is amazing.
We were told a 20 min wait and we had to wait 45 min. It was frustrating watching people who got there after us be seated before us.
great salad and fish menu. I had the Chinese/Thai chicken salad it was great. The portion was huge! I followed it with the Tuna. It was good too. the mash potatoes were luke warm.
A great restaurant. Everything I’ve had on the menu is delicious. Salads are huge, fresh and the dressings are uniquely tasty. Their fried chicken fingers are yummy and come with perhaps the best coleslaw I’ve ever had! Solid, friendly service.
Top notch business lunch spot
This restaurant is without a doubt one of the best! Always consistent with quality of food and exceptional service. We are a regular!
