Went to J Alexander’s to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The food was excellent, as was the service we received. We highly recommend going to this restaurant as we have never been disappointed with their food.

The meal and the service were excellent. I was taken my table in a good time, considering it was on Saturday. I had the shrimp tacos and they were excellent. Very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant.

This was our Easter dinner...not excited about the new name. Also, disappointing to hear you no longer offer the bernaise sauce. One of my favorites! Still love the food, service and ambiance. Glad to see your restaurant on Open Table!!

2nd time back to J Alexanders within 6 months. Return visit was just as good as first. Crab cakes full of chunks of crab which is one of my favorites.

Our service was terrible. It the food good. Our waitress was mia at our table for quite a bit...my daughter had her 2nd refill of soda and I was still waiting for a glass of wine. The server’s assistant did more face time than the server. The food was good but bad service always puts a damper on the experience.

J. Alexander's is our favorite KC restaurant for celebrations. The service and food are always outstanding. The portions are generous enough to split, or take half home for another meal.

Always great! Friendly service. Easy to make reservations. Everyone who works there has always been kind, professional, terrific. Food is always delicious. Served hot. Best choice for relaxed, casual dinner with really good food. Not too loud. Easy to talk with the people at your table. Will be back.

We have dined at J. Alexanders at least 20 times in the last few years and this was the first time the service was off. From the front desk who forgot to enter our reservation at open table (we got a did not show message from OT) to forgetting an ordered item to not making the substitution we order on one of our meals.
We love this restaurant and will be back because one bad experience will not deter us.

We reserved a time, and requested a table- a member of my party uses a walker and would not be able to scoot in a booth.
The hostess was friendly and advised me that the table they hoped to use was still occupied, much past typical service and they would seat us at a larger table that had chairs. I appreciated the suggestion but the table was too big, right next to the kitchen and we ended up yelling at each other over the noise of the ice being dumped, the chatter of the service and the general kitchen noise. Our server was excellent and the food ‘bullet proof’ as I like to say. Just disappointed we couldn’t hear each other.

This was the perfect place! I was with my son, who is recently returned from a deployment to the Middle East. The service was friendly, attentive and unobtrusive. The food was wonderful. We were able to visit as the noise level was low.

Our experience was way below expectations for the amount we were charged for the meal. My wife had the salmon that was not completely cooked, the accompanying rice/vegetable mix tasted weird and the broccoli we ordered tasted funny. She ate less than half her meal. I had the steak/fries meal and was underwhelmed. However the carrot cake was excellent. Service started out slow, but we ended up having a nice chat with the waitress.

This was our first time eating here and the atmosphere was great, the service was terrific! We thought the food was delicious but we felt both our steaks had a little to much fat and were more medium rare verses medium. We will definitely return.

We will not be going back unfortunately. Over the past couple of years there is too much inconsistency with the food. We ordered 2 filets medium rare and both were well done! They made us new ones which we got 25 minutes later after the other members of our party were finished eating. The new steaks were raw, and we can eat a rare steak, but this was ridiculous! I’m not one to ask to be compensated, but when you order 2 of the most expensive item on the menu you expect it to be cooked right or taken off the bill.

I got the Maui steak and my husband had the salmon. We shared the house salad. The food was all really good. However we waited over thirty minutes. Then it came out cold. Several people around us who came after us got their food first. Our waitress was very busy. I sent my steak back as I ordered medium rare. It was rare and cold. Husband’s salmon cold in center. He ate his anyway. But my steak did come back perfect. As in all the food was great. Service was pretty good and ambiance was nice although loud. I will go back

I ordered the prime rib sandwich when it came it was much smaller than the prime rib sandwich that someone else at my table ordered. I said something to the waiter. He offered to get me another but I said I didnt feel like waiting while it was cooked. I continued to eat even though I wasnt really happy with it. The waiter must have said something to the manager because he came over and took my plate. Was back with a new prime rib very quickly and it was much bigger. I was very impressed with all this.
