Beth the manager is spectacular. She made sure everything was up to par, not only at our table, but at every other table also. The servers all work as a team, not to mention the cooks and individuals in the kitchen who are outstanding. The food is delicious and comes out warm and in a timely fashion. Nothing less than an exceptional experience is expected at this Livonia location.

Dining has J. Alexander's is a consistently positive dining experience. They have very good service coupled with very good food to be an ideal combination. Would wish that some past favorite dishes would make its way back to the menu, such as Rattlesnake Pasta or Penne with Chicken. However, still highly recommend the restaurant.

I loved the appetizers and drinks. The meal at leaat mine was just ok. I opted for the crap cake. While it wasn’t bad to only get 1 side for market price ($38) wasn’t entirely worth it. I loved the calimari, salmon and spinach queso dip and the lemon drops are strong. I tried the chicken on my friends plate and it was dry and flavorless. Oh yeah and the chocolate cake was average at best had to eat with ice cream to enjoy.

As always the service was excellent (Megan) and with the exception on one steak being more medium that medium rare, everything was great.

We made a reservation online but had to wait a half hour for our table. We were told that the "reservation" isn't actually a reservation, just priority seating. It was still better than just walking in, but I don't expect to wait that long if I have a reservation.

Best Ribeye I have had in a long time “Maui Steak”, and if your a sweet eater, don’t even get me started on the Carrot Cake... nicely portioned, expect to take some home, you won’t be disappointed on these 2 selections.

Food was really good, but service was all over the place. It was a busy night. We had one person take our order, one bring drinks, one bring the check. So strange.

The food as usual is excellent. Made to order. I had the chicken tacos. I asked to hold the lettuce and add avocado instead with the pico on the side. Came exactly as ordered with shredded lettuce on the side. My wife gets her usual Alex’s salad with chicken. She’s never disappointed. My son had the BLT sandwich with the ham and turkey ( I can’t recall the sandwich name). His only comment besides great is that there is always way too much ham and turkey on it (good comment not bad). Keep up the good work.

The service was just fine but my steak - ordered medium rare wound up medium well. I should have sent it back but did not. Salad was very good. Pace of dinner was rushed - the items popped out one after the other - too fast. Very busy place too big for me.

We've been going here for years and always love it. But this time, the food was cold, the service was slow, I asked for 'medium' on the prime rib, it was rare.
I hope it's not a sign of things going down hill. Hopefully next time will be better.

The server was excellent! It wasn’t crowded which surprised me when my steak came out medium well instead of medium and my potato was cold. I hadn’t eaten all day so I didn’t send it back. Plus, I rarely send food back unless it is extreme. Nevertheless, I’ll be back because I love this place. Also, for the prices the attire required should be a little more like business casual rather than street clothes like jeans and gym shoes.
