The food was good but the service was even better. I had the club sandwich and it was perfect. I'm not a fan of shoestring fries but they weren't bad but I would go baked or mashed.

Why yes and no you can ask???!!! Yes/no: nice food but not fabulous, good service but not perfect, nice restaurant but not amazing, nice wine but not good except if you don't pay quite a lot of money! So once you can try it but then you will realize that it's enough! Enjoy it!

Expect to pay a lot for small servings. Food is good, but to get a decent amount you should plan to spend a lot of money.

We ate here for the first time about 6 months ago. I gave it 5 stars across the board. We were so looking forward to eating here again. We got there around 11:30 am on a Wednesday. There were about 6 people at the entry way in front of us. The hostess told us it would be about a 10... More

Over time, J Alexanders has become the go-to restaurant for special occasions. The service is always spot-on and welcoming. We love to take my Mom because she simply loves the prime rib sandwich. My wife loves the Alex's salad, with good reason, and I always, inevitably, order the soon-to-be famous Rattlesnake Pasta. Although we're almost always too full, we sometimes... More

Sunday night I just returned from out of town and stopped in for a Cypress Chicken salad very tasty and then as I was ready to pay the check- the waitress suggested dessert. Key lime pie, home made carrot cake or a special chocolate bunt cake with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. My daughter who was with me, looked... More

Allie was our waitress and she was great. Service all around was perfect. Food was fantastic. Very clean and professional. Gets busy around noon, so I was glad we arrived for an early lunch at 11. Every thing about our experience was awesome. You will pay a little more, but I doubt you would be disappointed.

I must start by saying I LOVE this restaurant. It is one of my favorites in all of Kansas City. The food and drinks (especially the martinis) are outstanding. Service from the waiters and waitress is also always outstanding. The reason for my not perfect review of this visit was due to the young lady and gentleman (maybe a manager?)... More
