Excellent service, attentive, but not intrusive. Every dish was exceptional, served on the elegantly designed plates. We had a great time and enjoyed every single dish and drinks served. Thank you!

Table for 8 was perfect. They gave us the long table upstairs alone the side. Great for us and the kids. The service was perfect. The Hamachi shooters were good and fun. Now we ordered 6oz Hokkaido A5 Wagyu beef as an appetizer which was perfect. We ordered the 20oz Prime rib, 28oz porterhouse, Rib eye chop, 19oz T-Bone W/bone marrow, all cooked to perfection. Side were green beans, carrots, mushrooms, onions, roasted potatoes and French fries. For desert we ordered all 4 lava cake, strawberry moose passion fruit w/chocolate cake crumble. Can you say food coma !

The restaurant was very nice and the service in general was great! There were only two things that lowered my rating, our servers visible irritation with questions and the fact the actual steaks did not taste good and were over cooked.
Regarding the service - it started out great however our server was irritated because one of the guests asked a lot of questions and if there could be special preparations. She is pregnant which was disclosed, so the questions and requests were very reasonable and for a Fine dining restaurant I would have expected more support. The rest of our service staff were excellent.
Regarding the food - Everything was great except for the actual steak, they would have redone the steak temperature if we requested. We enjoyed Apps, Dinner, Wine, Dessert, Coffee.

Impeccable service and presentation and delicious food. We loved the great selection of steaks and the waiter’s recommendations. The meal was well-paced, and I appreciated the time to digest appetizers before the main course was served. For dessert I had the chocolate soufflé and it was very good. Complimentary cotton candy was served at the end, and it was a nice touch. Overall a wonderful experience that was well worth the $100-$200 per person price.

I went there to have a nice meal and treat myself at the end of a work week. Over all the food was just ok for the price I paid. But the one saving grace of it all was my waiter, Richard. The guy went out of his way to make up for a rocky start to the dinning experience. Class act guy and a waiter that absolutely knows what it means to have excellent customer service. If there were such things as yelp for waiters, Richard would get a glowing review and I’d recommend getting him if you can.

Was suppose to go there last week. Was told to go to Osso Steakhouse. Not even in same league as Alexander’s. Alexanders blew away Osso. The staff were terrific. Manager at Osso did not seem to care about under staffed. Osso was truly a great experience. Would highly recommend it.

Start to finish our dining experience was fantastic. My medium rare filet mignon was cooked to perfection. The hamachi shots were flavorful. Ate all of the chocolate souffle down to the bottom of the bowl. The cotton candy and cookies were a great way to end the meal. My sister was celebrating her birthday that day. The staff really went above and beyond to make her experience special from the complementary champagne to the birthday card to the complementary dessert at the end. Overall a great first time and I will definitely be back.

Worst service I’ve ever experienced. The servers have no idea what they are doing. They are clumsy and ruin the experience. Also I’d recommend serving the foie gras with more than just 1 small tuile! A shame given how good the food is.

Educate your staff on how to conduct a proper service!

Service was excellent. It was our anniversary and they gave us a cake which was a nice touch. Gave us a card as well. Our son was with us and he’s amazed how the service was. He loves stakes and he said one of his favorite so far and we couldn’t be agreed. From the start to finished that was a wonderful memories we will not forgotten.

We went there for Father’s Day! Wine and Xo are amazing. But the salad is too salty and the fries are way too spicy. We ordered two wagyu beefs and one T bone. I think the steaks are good. But somehow my stomach hurts all night after the dinner. 😒

We got there Saturday waited at the bar for our table the bartender was great his service was awesome. They had a table for us earlier then our reservation which was great. The service started out great very attentive to us bringing water drinks bread etc waiter took our order everything was great until we finished our meal than the service lacked our water glasses where empty our plates where cleaned off and the staff never cleared our table it took them 20 min to finally clear the table and another 10 min after that for our waiter to come by and give us a dessert menu the place was no busier than what it was when we arrived. Not sure what happened but our experience was great until the end of dinner the service was terrible would I recommend it to friends absolutely.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday and traveled 3200 miles. It was probably the best dining experience we’ve ever had. Not only was the food exquisite but the service was absolutely perfect. They made us feel like we were the most special people in the entire restaurant. My 16-year-old daughter said she wants to come back here on her 21st birthday just so she can drink some of the wine that I enjoyed. Steaks were cooked to perfection and all of the additions were absolutely spot on. I can honestly say that I work in a five-star resort and this was a five-star restaurant no doubt about it!

I celebrated my 45th birthday here on 6/7. The service was great as well as ambiance. As soon as the host found out it was my birthday, 5 minutes after being seated another host came to our table and handed me a birthday card from the restaurant. That was an extra treat. I didn’t enjoy the oink scallops too much. I’m not used to the pungent smell so it was an immediate turn off and none of us wanted to finish the appetizer. We ordered a 48 oz. porterhouse steak for an entree and it was absolutely delicious. The whole dining experience was a 10.

Alexander’s was recommended to us as we celebrated our 36th Anniversary. Upon arriving, we were greeted warmly and brought to a nice comfortable booth. The level of Service clearly was going to be excellent. However, after seeing the prices on the menu I realized I would be eating my most expensive steak of my lifetime. All prices were higher than I am accustomed to.

After enjoying a spectacular meal with world class service, I would say it was worth every penny and more. The food from apps to entree’s was fantastic and cooked to perfection. The service from Molly, John and team was as good as I have ever experienced. I will absolutely return to dine at Alexander’s...overall I grade it a 10 out of 10
