We went in for dinner recently. There was a very limited staff in the restaurant. The shrimp appetizer was delicious, though some of the shrimp had an aftertaste like they had not been completely cleaned. When our entrees arrived we were surprised to find mashed potatoes and butter nut squash on the plate. The fish and duck were delicious. The... More

It just does not get any better than Alexanders. The staff is attentive, professional and informed, and the cuisine is absolutely terrific. Want to score big on date night? Make your parents or a client happy? This is the place to make that happen.

My wife and I celebrated Valentines Day here last night. It was a perfect evening. The served a limited menu for the holiday and the choices and combinations were remarkable. Service was very good and the servers knowledgable. Cocktails are always a strong point and they make a Sidecar better than any New York bar I've ever been to...and that's... More

My husband and I had an incredible dinner for our anniversary. The staff/ servers were so attentive. Top notch service all the way. My husband had the filet and shrimp. It was cooked perfectly. I had the salmon and it was very good. Our favorite was the shrimp and grits appetizer. The grits were so creamy. Yum! I would recommend... More

Alexander's, an elegant staple in downtown Roanoke, has always been a consistently good place for a special meal. However, this visit probably took them off my list of possibilities. There's no denying the service and atmosphere are impeccable, but a change in the menu and pricing structure has made it a very poor choice for many. Small plates have become... More

Took customers visiting from Japan and had a wonderful meal. The filet was very popular and for a good reason. Fabulous meal and service. Only downside is the price especially when the drinks are flowing freely.

Called early in the week to make a reservation for Saturday evening. They were booked during the times we were looking for. They suggested Friday and suggested early since it was the Dickens of a Christmas parade Night. It worked for us. We arrived and were promptly seated. We ordered wine and decided on the veal entre. We were served... More
