Took my customer to J Alexander's for a business lunch. Brandi was our server and did an excellent job. Customer shared that the Thai Kai salad was his absolute favorite. Based on his recommendation I tried it. The flavor profiles of the dressing coupled with the peanut sauce were just awesome. Chicken was cooked to perfection. Everything was fresh-fresh-fresh. We...

When we are in town we try to get to J Alexander's. We love the chicken pasta soup and often bring home a couple of cartons for lunch the next day. We also enjoy their burgers, ribs, and fish. Frankly, we have yet to try something that we didn't enjoy! They also carry our favorite wine!

I secured a 4:30PM dinner reservation on line and advised that it was our 48th Anniversary. We arrived at the appointed time and were greeted and seated immediately. Throughout the dinner we were given congrats on our longevity together and chatted with a few of the staff. We go to J Alexander's for the Prime Rib. I love it so... More

Always enjoy my experience at J Alexander's. Recently gathered with some folks that had not been together in 20+ years and the ambiance was great, food is always quality and the service was exceptionally gracious as we sat at his table, literally for hours (server #1035?). Great place for lunch, brunch, dinner - upscale but not pretentious.

The J. Alexander's in the Norwood area of Cincinnati served up some excellent meals and terrific service. If you enjoy the predictability and familiarity of a chain restaurant and are also looking for something a bit more upscale, this is a great option. Everyone in my party ordered something different, and none of us was disappointed. The food was delicious... More

This was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had! The service, the food, the wine - EVERYTHING was exceptional. Even the key lime pie was second to none! Can't wait to come back next time we're in Cincy!!!

Jays or Redstone Grill is always a great place for lunch or dinner. The service stuff is top notch. The food is always excellent. Wide range of items, great salmon. Happy hour gets crowded. I think Monday is half off wine but I maybe wrong.

A quick stop before a show in downtown. Things were slow on a Monday night and we grabbed a seat at the bar. The server was awesome and friendly, and the food was good (had the Thai Kai Salad). Great atmosphere.

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!
