Had a business dinner here. We had filets and Malbac. They had a seasonal side of roasted sweet potatoes. The flavor was bursting forth from the steaks and sweet potatoes. The restaurant was quiet enough that we could comfortably talk. The service and food were good. I recommend J Alexander's.

Love J. Alexander's in my home city but my recent visit in Cincinnati was not impressive. Service was fair, food was fair, can't say I will be a repeat customer.

I went to J. Alexander's before a Cincinnati Symphony concert and it had a very nice atmosphere. The waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing and the booths are comfortably large. The food was good for a medium price range, not extraordinary but not bad by any means. I hope to go again soon

Conveniently located to hotel stayed for conference. Did not have reservations, arrived around 8:30 for dinner for 2. Seated immediately, very friendly staff/host and got requested booth. Ambience is dark, woods, maroon carpet, but nice layout to room on two levels and despite size communicated some coziness and warmth. We had free app from hotel coupon-spinach artichoke queso that was... More

I eat at the bar, and the bartenders, Deanna, Amanda, Haley and okay, Scott, are all exceptional bartenders. I visit Cincinnati two to three weeks out of the year and eat here 90% of the time. Will cook to order to accommodate food allergies. To qualify two of my answers below, kid friendly definitely, but a limited selection for kids,... More

Nothing spectacular here. Seems to be frequented by business folks at lunch. Burgers are good with plentiful side orders, but for the price, they need to be. I would go back again only because it is convenient.

WE loved our steaks and prime rib here. They have nice large booths and you can linger and talk with your friends. Good for couples and date night. Excellent filet and salad. Service was a bit slow but you don't want to be in a rush here.

We normally go to the one near the Dayton mall but meet up with some friends from Kentucky here. They all got pasta .. the seafood Alfredo and others got the rattlesnake which does not contain rattlesnake. I opted for brunch fair .. the quiche which came wth potatoes and small salad. We all loved it.

Fellow traveler, there is a lot better places near by. Service was OK, at best. Food was not great and the price tag is ridiculous for what you get. A dinner at best, but priced as fine dining. Ambiance is just OK. No thank you.

Thank Herve_8
