J. Alexander's - W Bloomfield
Everything was good, I love using OpenTable and being seated right away even when they are crowded.
I brought five ladies with me to celebate three birthdays. No free dessert or a happy hour. My mistake - I won't do that again.
Service was hard to find. It was hard to order a second drink and there was a long wait for it, after the wait staff finally came to the table.
Don’t let them sit you in the back of the restaurant. It appears to be the children’s section. This is the second time I have had a business meeting and have been out in this section.
Usually this location is one of my favorites, but they missed the mark this time.
I remembered it way higher level than what it is today. In everything, service, ambient, food, noise... It is absolutely comparable to much cheaper steakhouses.
Always good. That is why I return
Have always had an enjoyable time, good service and food.
Not that busy lots of opening tables. A server dropped a bowl of sour cream right next to us , didn’t apologize and worse didn’t pick it up but sent someone else to pick it up. Our server couldn’t care less if we were there or not. I’ve only been there there 2 other times & believe me I will not be back.Somerset location is excellent no comparison.
Lately when we’ve been to J’s we feel like they rush the food so fast to turn tables,it is a real turn-off. The food was good, as usual, but we’ll think twice about heading back there. Also, the fact that they close at 9 on Thursdays is just weird.
Our waiter, Bryce, was fantastic! What a great personality!
The restaurant closed at 9:00 while it was still light out and potential guests were still arriving hoping to eat. In order to keep them out, the restaurant deadbolted the front door instead of simply engaging the latch on the panic bar. The deadbolt had a small knob on the inside that was not working properly. When we tried to leave shortly after 9:00, we were not able to open the door, and even staff members who tried to open it had tp struggle before they succeeded. If there had been a fire inside the restaurant (and the wood-fired grill was still operating, after all), this could have been a deadly catastrophe. It was a criminal violation of fire codes to deadbolt the door with people still inside, since it rendered the panic bar useless.
The restaurant changed their hours but did not update Open Table. We arrived for our 9:15pm reservation to find the restaurant closed with a note on the door informing potential customers that the restaurant had changed their hours to close at 9pm during the week. Very disappointed in this location.
It’s changing for the worse
I put that it was a bday in my reservation and I told them when I arrived. At the end of the meal the server stated that nobody had told her that there was a birthday
Even with reservations our wait was an hour but it was Father’s Day. Food was good and as a family we had fun
Fantastic!!!! Had a great time!!!
Everything was great. Great dinner and I thought it was a good value. I had the Tuna dinner and it was delicious.
Overall a good experience but found it a little odd that I wasn't allowed to order two drinks at once....I was hoping to enjoy a bourbon neat with a beer "back" and was told I couldn't...it felt awkward for me and the person telling me.
Our waitress Lewis was very professional and polite. He was knowledgeable of the menu and dishes that was good to taste. All the recommendations he made was good and tasty
Waitress Robin was so professional and knowledgeable of the menu. Her recommendations to try the prime rib and smashed potatoes was spot on! We had a party of 6 people and everyone got something different and everyone was truly pleased and happy that I choosed J. Alexander to have my Birthday dinner. I'm looking forward to my return so I can try something different. Thank you waitress Robin you made customer service A1...👍👍👍
I wish I remembered the name of my server who I've had before. She is fantastic. Treats her customers like
We are are at a fine dining steak house.
I love J. Alexander’s however, this was the worse service that we have ever received!
Didn’t appreciate the table next to us smoking cigars. That we didn’t smoke at restaurants anymore?
Trinity our server was amazing! The food was great as usual and the drinks were also on point.
My wife and I both had the marinated tenderloin steak tips dinner with rice and veggies. The steak was incredibly delicious. Our server, Candace, was awesome. J. Alexander's is my go-to favorite local restaurant. The food is always great and the drinks are awesome, too, with that extra side car.
It was the change over so it took to long and the French fries and mashed potatoes were all cold.
The desk gave our reservation to another couple. We waited 25 minutes for our table.
Ordered a salad
Wrong salad came
Sent it back
Wrong salad came again!
Kept it so rest of my party wouldn’t have to wait.
Seems server wrote order correctly. Mistakes were made in the kitchen.
I got sick after eating the steak Maui.
too loud in the restaurant..... need acoustic tiles to reduce the noise.
While I might recommend for dinner, cannot recommend for lunch. There is no lunch menu, ie, items and prices were the same as for dinner -- and overall more than we would normally spend for lunch. And also more than we might have cared to eat for lunch (ie, no lunch-sized entrees and we didn't want to settle for an appetizer). Our food was very tasty - we were completely satisfied - and our server terrific. But we wanted lunch, not an early dinner. My friend settled for a burger and I had a salad - but not what we had in mind when we decided to go out for lunch.
I've been patronizing this restaurant for over 15 years. It still has a special place in my heart, my wife and I had our first date there. I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice cozy lunch or a romantic dinner.
J Alexander’s is one of my favorite restaurants to enjoy a meal alone or with family and friends. The service
and the food is always excellent.
I enjoyed my meal, my server, and the overall experience
Love this restaurant. It is my all time favorite. Very enjoyable time every time I visit this establishment. Will definitely be returning at the end of this month.
Always Great! Never Disappointed!! Love Love Love J. Alex!!
We went in with no expectations and were pleasantly surprised. The steaks were cooked perfect and it was probably the best Mac and cheese I ever had
This was my first time at this place. For years I’ve heard rave reviews. However, I was not impressed. Service was great but the menu lacked options - food and drink. In 2019, what restaurant doesn’t have lemonade or some soda alternative? My entire party didn’t drink soda so are only option was water or alcohol. I ordered a ribeye that came with one side. It was the most fattiest cut I’ve ever had. I couldn’t even chew through it completely because of the fat. Since it was mothers’s day service was fast resembling that of an assembly line. Not much concern or care for customer needs; they just wanted to get customers in and out as fast as possible. Needless to say I will not be back.
I am not a first time customer therefore my expectations exceeded the taste of the food which my guests and I ordered. the service was good nonetheless
