This was my first time to visit a J. Alexander's restaurant. I heard the restaurants were pretty nice; that understanding proved true. Service was outstanding. Our primary waiter, Steven, was "Johnny on the spot" without being "hovering"...great waiter. What did impress was that other servers would stop by our table as they passed to inquire whether we needed anything. The... More

We enjoyed celebrating a good friends birthday last night while having a fabulous dinner and wonderful wine at Alexander's! Our server, Michael was the BEST. He was very attentive and took good care of the six of us.

The staff is so helpful that you will love to go back . The food is delicious and the portions are large. We go very often to this restaurant, but this time we wanted to have something simple so we had Soup and Salad. My friend had the house salad and she was not sure about the dressing, so they...

This is a solid good restaurant. The service is great Food was also good. Only reason I gave 4 is because it was just too dark to read the menu. The waiter brought another candle but still too dark.

It's been a while since we last had a meal at J. ALEXANDERS now known as the Redlands Grill. Not sure why they changed the name but fortunately the menu and the food is still the same. Our group ordered three different entree items; the roasted half chicken which I did not have, but very highly recommend with one caveat,... More

I travel for a living eating out many nights a week. It is rare that I encounter a restaurant that is truly memorable. This one is ! Everything is fabulous but you must save room for their carrot cake. The the service is amazing. Ritz Carlton level service. Go !!!!!

Overpriced for just average food. The waiter had zero personality. Very noisy, hard to converse with table mates. Used to be really good food, don't know what happened.

And it was not all that great either. I know the story that you should pay a bit extra for a good steak, well they have the pay a bit extra part down pat. The steak itself was tough and not all that good. I am wondering if their definition of medium was different than mine because I would say... More
