We visited J Alexanders and I was impressed with the food, the wait staff and the hostesses, who kindly accommodated our group of 14 last minute on a Saturday night. The place was packed by 5:30 and still they set us up within 30 minutes albeit at 2 tables next to each other. Everyone had great food - the salmon... More

I hadn't been here in a few years and was lucky enough to have lunch here today. Great service and delicious food! The salads are great (I enjoyed the Thai salad) and everything I saw coming out of the kitchen looked so good. The croissants that they served with the salads are sinful!

We needed a restaurant on Christmas Eve (not our usual year of doing the family dinner this time) and as we were staying across the street, we made a reservation at J. Alexander's. The service was excellent, the food excellent and an overall pleasant dining experience. Highly recommend.

We go to J. Alexanders eight to ten times a years. The food and service are always dependably great. It's kind of like fine dining but kid friendly as well. We've never had a bad item there before. We really enjoy the Caesar Salad, Mr. Jack's Crispy Chicken, French Dip, Slow Roasted Prime Rib, and the Bayou Pasta. The service... More

Trust me when I say that they served THE BEST carrot cake we've EVER had. Ever in my entire life and I'm 60. It is served warm. The cake is so, so moist and delicious. The frosting looked like it had been poured over the piece. We savored each individual bite. It set the gold standard for carrot cake. I... More

Needed somewhere to eat for a group of five with no reservations and decided to give J. Alexander's a try in Hyde Park. We couldn't have made a better choice for the evening. It was 6:45 PM, but we were seated immediately at a large round booth. The wait staff was prompt to our table and provided excellent service throughout... More

We expected this restaurant to be delightful. It was not. I have had some awful restaurant meals but out of all of the awful places I have been to, I would say this was the worst. We had family in town from Florida and wanted to go somewhere nice to have a predictably nice meal and this turned out to... More

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
