Usually, Alexander's is very good... great food, excellent service, etc... but we suppose coming off the heels of COVID-19 which is still among us, all restaurants are hurting a bit... so we'll give Jimmy (who went out of his way) & the gang a pass on this one and come back when things calm down. :) Have a Joyful & Blessed Christmas!

Cheers, Gerry Bryson (& his bride & neighbors)

The Calamari was so good.
The prime rib needed to be seasoned, Au jus was bland.
The veal was good but sides were bland

We had a great experience and our server was so knowledgeable about the menu that she was able to provide guidance on substitutions that made our entree even better. I can’t say enough how attentive our server was to make us feel welcome by meeting our needs and making our meal truly a pleasant experience. Their staff have been there for years so that says a lot. The food is fresh, with different tastes that blend together that you will not find just anywhere. And the ambience is always warm!

Went here for Thanksgiving dinner. They seemed overwhelmed. Were late getting us seated - not a big deal, but.then took forever to have our waitress acknowledge us. We had a later reservation, so they were out of the soup - still fine, they offered us a different selection. Overall, the food was pretty good for a Pre-fix meal. Could have been a much better experience, but think we would be better going on a regular day where you can order off the menu. We will be back, but probably not on Thanksgiving.

Wow, not sure how to say this, we were there two day before our second visit. I loved the dish I ordered on the first visit. Nothing but super!!! The second visit, the fish in the same dish did not taste fresh. They cooked another order. This time it was loaded with salt. They did not charge us for my meal. Otherwise the service was great. I learned a lesson. If you had success with one entree order a different entree the next time. We will go back again.

Two people enjoyed their meal. The New England clam chowder was delicious. But two people was told the mahi-mahi was the special and we ordered it, but they served us inferior salmon (their words) . The waitress said they were misinformed by the kitchen. The maître d’ was very apologetic, the waitress not so much. We were not charged for the two meals.
