Was a wonderful evening at Alexander’s with a friendly staff greeted me when I arrived. Had made reservations and the staff was fantastic and went out their way to answer all questions and continued to check on us and made excellent recommendations on what to have for dinner. The food was delicious and the desert was more than we could eat. Was a fantastic place for dinner

My friend and I went there after church to eat and fellowship. Our server Steven was very nice and professional. The bar must have been quite busy because our food came before our beverage. My friend ordered fish tacos and I ordered the Thai Kai salad. The salad claimed to come with grilled chicken, however the "chicken" looked like slices of white deli meat (it tasted like it also). I sent it back and ordered shrimp tacos and I was brought fish tacos instead. Steven apologized for the mistake and corrected it. I found that to be very commendable, as I have eaten in upper scale restaurants where the server acted like the error was the fault of the patron. All in all we enjoyed ourselves. But I do think it is sad when you call "deli meat" grilled chicken. You see I've had that salad in other restaurants with pieces of "grilled Chicken."

The food was exquisite as always! Enormous food Portions! The presentation was delightful with a beautiful contrast of appealing colors. The ambience restful and relaxing. The service was ok, but server forgot my change after generous tip. Jay Alexander’s is so consistently excellent that I can easily overlook this one occasion. This has easily become my favorite restaurant in SanAntonio. I’m looking forward to my next dining experience there.

Solid restaurant, good menu, but the prices are about 10%-20% above where they should be. Strong points are cocktails and prime rib.

This was my first visit but will not be my last visit. MY wife, son and I really enjoyed the dining experience. The food was delicious and the waite staff were exceptional. There was so much food from the salad, to the main course, to the dessert. And you cannot beat the price based on the service.

We always have a great meal here. We are sorry to see they are leaving Open Table. I guess Open Table fees or some other factor caused this.

We have been to J. Alexanders may times. It's one of our favorite places to have dinner! Our waiter wasn't as attentive this time as times past. My husband was served his drink in a cracked glass, drink glasses were left empty a couple of times (and that has NEVER happened before), steak was undercooked (has never happened before either). I would still recommend it but this past time was lacking for sure. I sure hope it doesn't happen again.

Great meal tonight. The crispy chicken platter is enough for two! The mac and cheese is to die for. The cypress salad is a smash, get it with honey mustard and extra croutons.

French Dip sandwich, generous portion of prime rib. Alex salad with Ranch a huge delectable salad with cheese, cucumbers, bacon bits and croutons. Awesome house white wine! Relaxing atmosphere with gracious and professional wait service. Quite enough to carry on a conversation and great menu selection. This has quickly become my favorite restaurant in SanAntonio.

Delicious food and great service. It was the perfect opportunity for me and my friend to catch up, just before the dinner rush. Service was prompt and the server was amazing... sadly I cant remember his name. But it was a team effort.
