After dozens over the years of visits to Alexanders, since Redlands became involved it seem to have declined some what. Simple request were forgot extra plate, no Couscous on one plate, coffee tasted as if it was instant. When a shared desert was delivered without flat wear (table was cleared from the meal) the server ask if we would like utensils. For the price not exorbitant but above average these are things that should not happen.You need to have a third option on recommendation and a forth on noise level either of these do not give a complete option to the consumer.

Used to be top echelon of service, but completely different now. What I loved about this place was the team approach -- anyone passing might stop and ask how things are. Now they don't make eye contact despite my waving and shouting, they hurry by. I had to actually get up and walk to hostess stand and ask if they could send our server over so we could pay and leave. At one point we could see our server hauling ice bags around? She was nice but harried, and they no longer have the culture of anyone can help you. Food quality was thankfully good--still love the grilled artichoke, fries, meats.

Server didn't give us much time and seemed more interested in turning the table over than letting us enjoying our meal. The bacon on my salad was inedible - chewy, undercooked and extremely fatty.
It was my 10th time at this location. It must have been an off night.

Food quality and consistency was extremely poor this evening. The chips and fries came out multiple times over cooked and harder than usual. When replacement fries were brought, both times they were hard and burning hot. I’m pretty sure they were just thrown back in the fryer and brought back scalding hot in a dismissive attempt to just do something. I was very dissatisfied with my meal and the floor manager or whoever he was didn’t appear interested in service recovery whatsoever. Nobody was monitoring the food quality this evening. There are many dining options in the immediate area, and more opening soon. I was extremely disappointed and dissatisfied.

We love J. Alexander's, been there many times and are favorite "go to" place for family special events and to catch up with very good friends. In the past our reviews have been outstanding in all categories but not this last time. The place...perfect, not too noisy with a great low key ambiance. The food...exceptional, there is nothing on the menu from appetizer to dessert that disappoints and since we frequent the restaurant as often as we can, we all have our family favorite dishes. The service...well, our waitress was wonderful, being available without being intrusive. Our complaint at our last visit was being rushed. We were halfway through the appetizer and the salads came, we were just starting our salads and the main course came. We were almost finished with our entrees and the push was on for dessert. We felt that we were being hurried to eat and leave. Will we go back...absolutely! Will we continue to recommend the restaurant to others...yes, highly recommend! If you want great food, a wonderful atmosphere and impeccable service you will not be disappointed.

The restaurant has always been eye appealing when you enter. We were there last night to celebrate or friends promotion at work, they had never been. They have the best 16oz prime rib in town (medium-rare) and it's not even close. Unfortunately the night we bring our friends, Jeff our waiter was terrible...not the rude comments type but very distracted and could never to things out to us or forgot all together. Our server James was not good. We have had amazing wait staff people here in the past. Plus for some reason the first 4 trips to the desk to bring menus, water, silverware changed we had someone different come to our desk. Most of the tim we come in the manager will walk by and ask how things are going..nope not last night...and the place was not busy. I will eat there again many times over, but James is not in it to win it

We were here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The manager came by our table with our dessert (carrot cake of course) along with a birthday card signed by the restaurant staff which was a nice gesture. My wife really appreciated it and it made our night. The food of course is terrific. Atmosphere is also inviting and cozy.

We are "regular". If the choice of a restaurant is for one that we can depend on for good food, and service, this is the place, hands down.

Love love love this restaurant. However, this is the second time I have asked for something not to be included in my salad and it comes with the item despite my request. They are always good about quickly correcting the issue, however, it is awkward to send it back and timing is then off with my companion who I insist should do ahead and eat. I think the issue is in the kitchen, not my server, since it appears each time that they are diligently writing down the request. Fortunately, it is not an allergy issue.

An diesem Samstagabend war das Restaurant sehr voll. Der Service war trotzdem ausgezeichnet. Wir entschieden uns für einen Haussalat, welcher sehr frisch und speziell war. Danach bestellten wir Entrecote und den Tagesfisch. Beides war ausserordentlich frisch und gute Qualität. Wir würden dieses Restaurant weiter empfehlen.

The experience was outstanding. The restaurant was very clean and neat as well as the staff. We were greeted with smiles everywhere we turned. The food was phenomenal! Had the prime rib and it's one of the best that I've ever had. The Nyo mac and cheese is out of this world. Our server Carlos made us feel like we were the only people in the whole entire restaurant. He catered to us and went above and beyond to provide premiere service. We also received a card for our anniversary hand signed by each individual . Thank you all!

Nice menu, steaks expensive for the style restaurant it is. Salads large. Friends had burgers which looked large with fries that were thin and hot.
Wait staff very attentive. Will return. came from the Start where it took about 15 minutes to drive, seems to be close to TPA.

Prime rib was fantastic along with the side dishes. Tried the daily special appetizer which was also full of taste. Added a glass of wine to the mix and it was a great night. Service was attentive yet not overbearing. Noise level fluctuated. The temperature of the restaurant fluctuated as well at times.
