Everything I was hoping it would be with only one exception. I would have preferred less noise. Still, that will not stop us from returning. The food was outstanding!

Food was excellent as usual. Service was okay. The server seemed overwhelmed and provided little service that wasn’t prompted by us having to get her attention.
Most concerning, the restaurant is violating the fire code and Americans with Disabilities Act by placing chairs in the aisle that are blocking egress for customers with wheelchairs and walkers. I spoke to the manager and he didn’t seem to be too concerned with violating the law and
just blew me off. I am a very regular customer and this was greatly disappointing. I will be notifying the city and
Corporate of my concerns.

I requested a window booth and did not get one. I felt they could have held one for us, as there are many. Other than that, they sat us immediately, our server was attentive, and the food was good. All in all a good dining experience...we'll be back.

The server seemed distant, almost like he didn’t want to be there. He seemed bothered that it took us a little while to order —— since we were awaiting the rest of the party. The food and cocktails were amazing but our waiter left a sour taste.

I love the Thai Kai salad, I eat it almost every week. I bring friends there all the time. They love the good. There is just one thing everyone complains about. The place is FREEZING!!!!! And I mean FREEZING!!! It’s a great place with healthy delicious choices, but bring a jacket with you!

Service was fast.
Food was hot and arrived in a timely fashion.
Managers were on the floor assisting guests needs as well as assisting the servers with a hand to help.
Head chef stopped by to make sure the Salmon and NY Strip were cooked to our preferred temperature.
Always a great experience when we come into Js.
Best Restaurant in Town! Hands Down!

I was very disappointed in my Tuscan steak special. I wanted it medium rare. Was told it was par cooked and lowest temp would be medium. I agreed to take it, but it was flavorless and medium well done. Won’t do that again.

Usually have good experiences with the food but not this time. Both my husband and I ordered the steak special, aged NY strip. We couldn't order medium rare because of the way it was prepared before time, but was told it would be medium. We were fine with that. However, when the steaks were delivered, mine was more like medium well but my husband's was well done. Disappointing.

The food was great, and the service was pretty good. We made the reservation for our wedding anniversary and were met with a nice mention of the occasion. At the end of our meal we were asked it we'd like a dessert, and we ordered chocolate cake. I thought it was for our celebration, but it was on the bill. When we paid the bill and mentioned our anniversary the server offered us carrot cake to go. I know it's hard to remember everything.

We have been to J Alexander's many times over the past 4-5 years and have recommended it in the past. When sitting in the bar, all is good. However, over the past year or so, the service in the main restaurant has been consistently poor. Long wait times for one or two of the drinks out of the four diners. Food coming out at different times, frequently w/ one or more not being hot. Even w/ management involvement, there has been no satisfactory resolution. Resolution could range from ensuring the issue(s) is handled immediately to comping a drink that took 45 minutes to get (mgt was involved at 30 minutes).
