The cilantro lime vinaigrette is one of my favorite salad dressings in town!! The food is always great every time and well worth the money. Great steakhouse option for South KC area.

We have been going tp J Alexander’s since the early 90’s. It has always been our favorite restaurant. Tonight they fell short of our expectations. We had reservations for 6:15 and arrived on time. We waited for 15 minutes and were finally seated at 6:30. Then my husband ordered a drink which took 20 minutes to arrive. The food was excellent as always but we were extremely disappointed in our visit.

I always come here for the French Dip. This time I tried a daily special which had ham in addition to the beef and had an AMAZING gravy/au jus with it. It was very good, but I prefer the French Dip. I definitely liked the gravy side and would prefer that to au jus!! Nice meal, GREAT server, enjoyable lunch!

Had not eaten at this restaurant in years. The service was excellent and the food very good. We ate at lunch on a Saturday and was not busy so don't know if service would have been as good if we ate at a busier time. The food came out to us very quickly. It was a delightful experience

We were celebrating "Galentines" Day. We had some of the best Rose' , the best cheese dip (we consider ourselves aficionados) and the most decadent croissants! So glad you all brought back the croissants. Our server was David, and he was one of the best servers I've ever had. He was attentive and very friendly. He just did everything right to make sure we really enjoyed ourselves. I even noticed how he reacted to other tables. He seemed to understand everyone's vibe and took care of his tables accordingly and in such a genuine way. We are already planning to visit again soon. Thank you for a great girl's night.

Our 7:00 p.m. reservation turned into 7:30 so we were offered a free appetizer or dessert. The salmon was raw so we sent it back and the new plate wasn't served to us by the manager for close to 30 minutes. This salmon was much thinner and unfortunately overcooked, however, we did not send it back but took it home. The salmon was taken off the bill. J Alexanders is still my favorite place for salmon and I will continue to dine here because they usually get it right!

Great food, great service. Everything was perfect. Recently they did some interior work and made it a little lighter with light colored paint and I think more lights..., I liked the way it was previously with a little darker ambiance but that is just me. Very nice evening. Thank you...

Unfortunately, this wasn't the best experience. One of the people in my party had their order input incorrectly. The restaurant apologized and covered the cost of the meal. Mistakes happen and everyone involved was sufficiently apologetic. We will be back to give it another try. This isn't the normal experience at this restaurant.

We love this restaurant, but apparently it has changed hands and so our once a year special dinner of beef tenderloin no longer comes with the delicious Bernaise sauce it once did. That and a couple of other menu downgrades gave this formerly perfect restaurant one less star in our eyes. The steak was cooked perfectly to our specifications, however.

The menu itself no longer looks high-end. It looks like a diner lunch menu -- just one line for each item, including our $36 tenderloin. Normally there is a description.

BUT the lighting and fabulous acoustics make up for the little decline in food. The restaurant was packed, yet we could hear each other perfectly. The lighting sets off each table so you feel alone in your little dining domain. Very lovely. And I have to compliment the host. In our reservations I had requested a booth. At the time we arrived there were none available, so our wonderful host asked if we wanted to look at the four-top that WAS available to see if it was acceptable.-- and it was just fine. I truly appreciated his doing that.

I also like that there are no televisions to distract from your social time.

Food and service were excellent once seated. Had a reservation for noon. Got there at 10 of. Seated at 12:30. Promised a free appetizer because of the long wait. Then did not provide it. Way overbooked. Wasted alot of time. Unhappy about that.

My filet was not a good cut of beef. I could have purchased my own beef and prepared and cooked better. Very chewy and almost like a large portion of sirloin.

We had a great family dinner at J Alexander’s. I had the rotisserie chicken. Amazing. My wife had the chicken salad. Our son had the ribs and they looked huge and delicious and his wife had the filet. All very good. And the wine selections by the glass are very good. 🍷
