Great food great place.
Alexander?s restaurant is a great place for a wonderful meal! they have sophisticated and flavorful food! The staff also makes it a very pleasant place to be. One of my favorite dishes is the beef gorgonzola with sauce bordelaise and they always have great soups! If you want to go for a four course meal or even just for an appetizer and dessert Alexander?s is always a great choice!

"Alexander's" just doesn't capture the meaning or do this place justice!.
Fabulous Food & Decor! Rich, dark elegant and intimate describe this very formal restaurant (like a very regal pub). But be prepared for the prices!! I had looked them up and seen their enticing menu and knew their prices were high so we were expecting to pay about $75. (I must've seen an old menu or a lunch one.) When the bill came to a $125 (+ a $25 tip) we were shocked! Everything is a la carte so my !asparagus was about $10 as well as my soup and cocktail. The food was divine so just KNOW you are going to pay for it!!! I doubt whether our filet's could have been better prepared anywhere! The creme brulee was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, but could've been a little bigger. If you need to impress a woman, a client or a boss, bring 'em here! We were celebrating our anniversary which was a nice quiet, romantic & formal environment. But the men could equally do a "guys night out" here. I highly recommend it!! Our waitress was extraordinary helpful and kind. She took her cues from us regarding conversation with us. When we were friendlier and chattier, she was also. When we weren't, she was discrete. She was very attentive. Everybody should go here at least once, even if you brown bag your vege or snack up before you get there!! (LOL) Had we had an appetizer or two deserts or a bottle of wine -- whew, the price could've easily reached $200. My husband just had sweet tea; no alcohol at all. We each had a steak, 2 side items and a drink; mine was a sour apple martini. Boy, do they ever have a martini menu!! Must've been 20-30 different ones; it was difficult to have only one. I should've looked up whether there was a happy hour or not.
Tres chic and bon appetit.
A Formal Place..
Alexanders is a formal restaurant offering French style meals. The staff can seem a bit uppity, but if fits w/in the theme of the restaurant. That said, they are eager to explain the menu and make recommendations. (The ingredients can be unfamiliar, so, ask!)
The tables are spread, and, on slower nights, they will spread the patrons out (which is a plus to me.)
The food is very good. Worthy of a visit - highly recommended.
