The food, drinks, service and atmosphere are always 5-star at J. Alexander's in Plantation, FL. The Fire-Grilled Artichokes and Mexico City Spinach con Queso are great appetizers. The Slow Roasted Prime Rib, Filet Mignon with Béarnaise, and Ahi Tuna Steak are awesome entrees. The French Dip Sandwich is amazing. For sides I recommend the Not Your Ordinary Mac & Cheese or the Ripened Tomatoes. For dessert the Carrot Cake and the Chocolate Bundt Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream are heavenly. They also have a great selection of wines by the glass and bottle.

The RSVP was for 830pm we did get seated 855pm, what's the purpose of RSVP if you still have to wait almost 30 minutes for your table

We had a great experience there. Food was prepared just as we asked. Staff was energetic & friendly. The only draw back was the noise level. We were yelling to hear one another. Acoustics are pretty bad. Everything else was a positive.

We a grilled artichoke for an appetizer which was delicious. The King cut Prime Rib, the Center Cut fillet and French Dip were perfect. The only issue was our dinner was served before we could finish our appetizers. I would suggest delaying ordering until you are served the appetizers or even a little later. We felt rushed.

They had to close a large section of the restaurant unexpectedly so we had to wait 20 minutes after our reservation time. We were seated near the bar which was a little noisier than I am used to. Other than that the food and service were great as usual. Our server, Kyle, was great even after just coming off of a long family road trip. I will continue to eat at this restaurant and at this location. <3

We had a delicious dinner; the pecan trout special was absolutely delicious. Everybody at the table enjoyed their food, Service great, only complaint, I asked for some bread and we were brought a plate of sandwich bread, sliced in half on the diagonal. What???? I didn't need the bread anyway. But other than that we will definitely go back.

It was amazing food was amazing never been served so quickly. Everything was great and the server was great. I just wasn’t ready for when they added some type of money on the bill. I believe it was around $98. I paid and it went straight up to 108 when I got the bill back. I honestly didn’t understand it at all. But overall everything was great

Food and selection was very good.

Waiter was not friendly and borderline rude when I told him we hadn't received our appetizer when he checedk after the entre was served.

He did compensate by giving me a free desert.

Noise level made conversation difficult even sitting side by side.

The food was excellent and we had an amazing time with the exception of the waitress we had. She paid little to no attention to our table checked on us once. I watched as waiters and waitresses attended to other tables. As our waitress did not come back to our table until 30 mins after she took our order. She seemed very disinterested in us as she focused on her larger parties so I’m guessing the tip would be better for her

We went on Father’s Day and had a reservation. They seated us half an hour after The time we had reserved. When we arrived it was obvious that they were already overcrowded and it only got worse after we were seated. Instead of a table in the dining area we were given a booth opposite the bar which was also crowded with people waiting for their tables. No effort was made at the bar to alleviate a crowd of condition that fell over into our seating area for our dinner. We ordered salad for an appetizer and our main entrées arrived before we were even halfway done with our salads. By the time the waitress came back to check on us our main entrées were already getting cold as we try to finish our salads. Our waitress made no effort to correct the situation. The food was prepared very well and actually delicious but unfortunately because there was no time between the salad and our main entrées it left us very disappointed. To add insult to injury our waitress did not offer us coffee or dessert and brought the bill right after our entrées were served. She obviously wanted us to leave so that she could see another party and get another turn off her table and alleviate the crowding in the restaurant. I assume the manager gave her instructions to clear tables as soon as possible. So the service was amongst the worst I’ve ever had from both waitress and management.

Should be a shame of themselves! Very, very disappointed.
