No more Rattlesnake Pasta! No more pasta dishes at all actually. The rattlesnake pasta which was a blackened chicken Alfredo with fresh green and red peppers drizzled with scallions and parmesan cheese and just the right amount of spice was one of their most popular dishes. My family and friends stopped going there since they no longer have it on the menu. Steak and ribs start at $25 a plate and basically the only other decent choices on the menu.... But you can get steak and ribs at many other restaurants...... For much cheaper.

The food was great. Getting in on Mother's Day was not at all difficult. The server was a bit busy so we did not get great service. We have received better service in the past.

It’s was Mother’s Day, it was crazy, but J. Alexander’s was so organized that it didn’t feel crazy at all. Our waitress was amazing and my parents enjoyed their first time here. Thanks for making Mother’s Day perfect for us!!

Most of the service was good, I went on Mother’s Day. I ordered dessert and it never came, so I cancelled. Everything else was okay.

The table was not ready at the reservation time. It took an extremely long time for our food to come out. On the bright side our server was nice and the manager gave us dessert. I would rather have had our food more timely.

My sister and I came for Mother's Day dinner, May 13, 2018. My daughter gave me a gift card for this restaurant. I had never been here before, so this was the perfect time to try it.
We felt like royalty!! We were both given roses for Mother's Day. We both had Prime Rib and I would have to say it was one of the best I have had. We split a salad before dinner and our server was so kind to bring us 2 plates and separate dressings if we had wanted.
I would definitely come back and recommend J. Alexander's - Livonia to my friends.
Thank you for a fabulous Mother's Day dinner!!

Food was great! Chicken is always tender. A longer wait due to it being Mother's day. Waitress forgot a few things we asked for. Not holding it against her. Will go back.

J. Alexander has to be the most consistent restaurant in all aspects, from the friendly hosts and servers to the great tasting food. I have been dining here for over 10 years, at the Livonia location, and I always leave satisfied. I’m a picky eater and being a mom of 4 who loves home cooked meals, my outings at restaurants better be just as satisfying and J Alexander’s always wins! I’m a fish eater and let me tell you, you can never go wrong with their salmon or tuna steak. If you have any little picky requests like mine, they cook it to your liking! Enjoy!

I was not please with the quality of the food. I was even more disappointed in the Keylime pie that I ordered..... the consistency horribleand it was poorly made, it tasted like sugar without tart. My date ordered steak tacos.... the portion of meat was for a three year old and cold. He refused to eat them because when they were brought to the table they were cold he sent them back, our appetizer, the dip was too liquied. On top of that we felt rushed by the wait staff to where he were we unable to enjoy each other’s company. My date drive from Chicago just to take me to dinner. I’ve been serviced much better at the WB J Alexander’s during lunch..... we have to do a better job!!!

I was very disapointed with the Prime rib. It was incredibly salty. Much too salty! I was sadly surprised a vegetable didn't come with the meal.
The service was outstanding!

I love that we’re always seated around our reservation time. It’s my biggest pet peeve to wait forever despite having a reservation- what’s the point, you know?

Our service was great, but not from our actual assigned server. I can’t remember her name.. Caucasian, dark brown hair, a lot of makeup. She was mostly absent. Ancillary servers more than made up for her though.

Place is incredibly mediocre. Steak was overdone and grainy. I showed up at exactly the time of my reservation and waited 10 minutes to be seated. And what's with this member's wine club? There are several wines on the menu but you can't (yes, cannot) buy them unless you're in the club.
