J. Alexander's - Plantation
The restaurant will close early on Wednesday 7/11 at 7 PM, for building maintenance. We will re open for regular service at 11:30 AM on Friday 7/13. Please fee to visit us in Boca Raton or Redland's Fort Lauderdale.
From first entering to enjoying dinner and exiting the restaurant the customer service was excellent.
All of the young women were friendly and attractive. The food was excellent.
Great environment, super-busy for a Tuesday night. Food & drinks were great - what made it special was the service from our server (English man, cannot remember his name) who was excellent from start to finish.
Great food, great service!! Truly enjoy the atmosphere. Always recommend a reservation as this restaurant gets really busy!!
Service was great. Never let my iced tea run out. It is very noisy there however we were able to converse with each other. The steaks were less impressive than I expected. Especially for the price. The Cajun rib eye that I ordered was just so so. Stringy and tough. However, overall, I would return.
I have been here before and my experience was much better. First off I made a reservation and they said they could not find it. I made this reservation days before. I had to take out my phone to show my confirmation e-mail. With that said, I still had to wait. We ordered wine, the server came back a long while after stating they did not have either wine available and she left. She did not provide us with any complementary wine that was available that was close to what we ordered—-nothing. The food portion was good but it was very salty. The odor inside was not pleasant. I won’t be returning.
I made reservations a few days back and requested table and booth combination for there re some with back issues. I got the worst table by the reception desk and kitchen with so much noise. So disappointed. Chris the waiter, was great but the rest thumbs down.
Always on point, great restaurant
Out dated and food just ok. Was more like a sports bar than a steak house
This is a lower-level Houstons's. The interior has nice features such as the exposed beams on the roof. But the place is worn out. When we arrived I was struck by the stale air; it felt like a Denny's.
The menu is very similar to the Menu at Houston's. The food is ok. We had the queso dip (or something like that) and it was good. I ordered a ribeye and asked that it be cooked medium rare but it was medium well. The meat was flavorless. The baked potato was nice, though, with ample salt and toppings.
The wine list is also quite good. We had the Mt Veeder Cabernet for $42; I've never seen it priced that low at a restaurant. They had other notable selections at very reasonable prices.
Overall, our meal was ok. Service was good and we were pleasantly surprised by the wine list. Wouldn't be our first choice, but if we have no other options, we'll go back and at least have a Boyle of wine and appetizers.
The waitress was inexperienced. She told me that grilled artichokes were good, they were disgusting. The Maui Steak had a sweet sauce and I told her I like butter sauce, she recommended the sweet sauce, who wants sweet sauce on a steak. She seemed impatient too. Gonna try another restaurant
Food and Service very good. Need to honor timing for the reservation.
I have been going for years Great food great service but way overpriced. $28 for Salmon at lunch please...
Great atmosphere, great experience ........ always
Always a great place for food and drinks. It’s my favorite restaurant in South Florida.
This place NEVER disappoints. Had a great Valentine's experience unlike most places that are slacking on Valentine's.
Love J’s. One of the best there is in Plantation. Never a bad meal, and the ambience and service are always great too.
Great food and service, will definitely be back!
Valentine's day, we made a reservation at 6pm and we were sat quickly. Food was great, on point. Good taste and plenty of food. Price was good, nice environment.
Great Valentine’s dinner!
It was ok. Though had a 7pm reservation still had to wait until 715 to get the table
Excellent service great food
Food and service is always good here! It is one of our favorite local places to go to for dinner get-togethers. :-)
Great service and food.
Made a reservation which was great because this place is always busy. Service was exceptional. Food came quickly and water glass/drinks were always filled. They have a menu with a good variety of consistently delicious entrees - great burgers, salads, steaks. Save room for dessert - best carrot cake and scrumptious key lime pie. Great choice to impress friends and colleagues.
The food was amazing, however, they brought out salads not 30 seconds after the appetizer. So, I was still eating my appetizer and had not even started on the salad when my dinner came out one minute after the salad. I had my app, my salad and my dinner all on the table and I had not even finished the 2nd quarter of my artichoke which is cut in 4. I was still working on the second part when dinner arrived at the table. I commented to the waitress about the speed in which everything came out, and she sent the manager over. He offered me a $30 gift card for my next visit. The waitress then came when we were done and cleared the table and dropped off the check. She never asked if I wanted coffee or dessert. I never felt so rushed out of a restaurant before. The food was amazing but the experience was awful! It was embarrassing because it was my dates first time there and I had raved about the place. UGH!! We were in and out in under an hour. Horrible!
This service was amazing, The waiter told us what the chef’s menu was for the night , i really enjoyed it
always good food and great fun. only downside is all the plastic and styrofoam they use in doggy bags.
I have been to J Alexander’s many times including the location in Plantation and have never been disappointed. Living in Plantation also makes it easy to select this location. Great food, ambiance and experience. Not inexpensive but reasonable. Also, our waiter was engagingly pleasant.
Delightful to say the least
Bar area group seating was not nice enough for a business dinner. We felt cramped and there was no ambiance.
Our server forgot to bring red wine that was to be served with dinner. I never got it.
She also brought mashed potatoes with my wife's prime rib when she ordered the broccoli.
My family and I went to dinner to celebrate my 42nd birthday, there was no wait to be seated. (Super Bowl Sunday) Our meals came out on time, hot and tasting delicious as always. Service as usual was wonderful and the reason we always return to have a nice evening.
J. Alexander please keep up the great service, and outstanding meals. I thank you and your staff for always making my date nights a pleasant experience.
Little disappointed that we had a reservation at 9 and still didn’t get sat till almost 9:25. Server was very nice and the food was delicious. Just not too happy about the extended wait.
Beautiful service and delicious food! I will definitely be back.
The food was great. At some point my party was forgot about. But as soon as it was made clear that we were not served yet. We got excellent service from that point on. We are looking forward to visiting again.
Great food and service. Was noisy.
Always a great experience when we go there, food is delish!
Love it! Great food. Great service. There was a wait but the bar area was hopping. Love the grilled chicken salad.
