Great service. Food usually great but not so this time. Steak ordered very rare served medium to medium well. Sent back. Redone perfectly. Half chicken slightly over cooked. Breast meat dry. Other two with us very pleased with their food. It remains one of our favorite restaurants.

The only thing about j. Alexander's i do not like, is that you always freeze in there so it makes it uncomfortable to eat!

Met a friend for lunch & we both had my favorite Redlands salad with cornbread croutons instead of regular & White wine vinaigrette on the side. I also had a cup of the chicken tortilla soup. Very good!!

So delighted that the baby kale salad was back on the menu. We’d love to see corvina offered again. Yours was some of the best that we’ve ever tasted.

Horrible. We've been going for years and the service has been getting incredibly slow -- which happens from time to time -- but the food was also wrong, tasted old, and we had indigestion most of the night. It was our last visit. Seems like they're trying to cut food cost by serving low quality.

My Dad and husbands filets weren't cooked correctly. The manager had a new steak brought out to my Dad and he didn't charge him for it ( which was nice). My husband just ate his. At the price you charge, it should have been perfect the first time. Also, no bread was brought out with the salad course. I asked for a quieter section of the restaurant on my reservation but we were seated by 2 large families with small children.

The tuna was tasteless, and weirdly thick. It would be nice if you included a little something green on the plate-for taste as well as color. My friend said his salad was very good. I really like the tuna at Napa Grill so I just might be too accustomed to it

Well, my wife and I eat here two and three times a week. I got off a plane last night and we went there for dinner, they always have a special menu on a small card and on the back, drink special and or offerings. On the back of my card it said $20 bottles of wine, I ordered one, then a glass was brought out, I said I want the bottle, no big deal, I said take the glass back and ask your manager what he wants you to do. Server came and said the glass on us and I’ll get the bottle. Dinner was great as always, check comes, bottle was $32, I replied it said $20, went to the manger and came back and said I’m sorry, just don’t tip me(I tipped him, not his fault)! Now for management, I have lady say so, with that being said I’ll not come back for 3-6 months, that $12 is going to cost you between $2000-$5000 depending on how long I stay away—see, I have the last say so!!!!

This is usually our go to place,but not tonight. Food was not very good and service was bad. When my daughter told the waitress her meat was way over cooked she became very defensive and said that was just the it came. My daughter told her she had been coming there for years getting the same thing and it had never been that bad before.

I think they should change the way they handle birthdays, if you are going to give a free dessert you should let the customer choose,
There are a lot of people who do not like carrot cake.

The food is always great as is the service, ambiance, and clean bathrooms.

As a music major I love good music so I really do not like listening to the music they play at Redlands. It is either loud jazz, or repetitive avant-garde, never very appetizing. I have actually felt sick before when the "Music" is playing. I thought I was on a outer space acid trip last Sunday. It was sometimes just someone saying a word over and over and over. Please play something more beautiful in tune such as Debussy, Mozart, Beethoven, or even moderately loud forties, fifties or sixties. If the music in a Restaurant gets too loud, the crowd gets cacaphonic and we want to avoid the Restaurant. Music should be entertaining and gracious without drowning out the personal conversations. Thank you for a more pleasant music status.

Best service and food consistently! Steaks are always perfect...Redlands salad with Redlands Bleu cheese is the best in the city. Beverage glasses are quickly refilled. Carrot cake is served warm and it’s delicious. Never had a bad meal or bad service here!

J Alexander’s is one of my favorite places to eat. We were celebrating a birthday. The waitress surprised us with a slice of carrot cake with a candle in it. I thought that was nice of her. The food and service was good. I can’t wait until my next visit.
