Reservation was for 7:15 pm everyone arrived at 7:05 pm, we were not seated until 7:34 pm.
A lot of confusion between the three people at the check in desk.

Grilled Filet did not seem to be grilled but coated with something to indicate grilling marks
very disappointing.

Went for our anniversary. Everything went grEy until entrees were served. Runner only delivered one prime rib meal. She looked confused and saw her check the kitchen and finally tracked down our server. Server apologized and a second dinner arrived in about five minutes. We were comped desserts for the snafu. Prime rib was perfectly cooked. Smashed potatoes were a disappointment. Not creamy at all and tasteless.

J. Alexander's is one of our favorite places to dine, especially before seeing a movie. The only issue this last time was the fruit flies!!! My husband must have killed 10 of them. I mean so many that it became the entertainment at our table.

Seriously, fruit flies are annoying and gross! Can you please get them under control?

Thank you,
Wendy Zobl

I told the waitress that we were celebrating anniversaries, and nothing. No response. She seemed really checked out. No attention to detail. Left our drinks empty and had to flag down the manager to get drinks. Food just okay. Really pricey$$ for what we got. Calamari WAY overpriced. Nothing special at all and not worth the $17. Asked for my fries to be packaged separately, and she says no problem....but was given all in one container. Yeah, no problem right...I gave you a shot after 20 yrs, not sure I'll ever be back.

We absolutely love going to J. Alexander's restaurant in Livonia. The service is just perfect, and even more, the timing of the drinks and food is the best. There's nothing worse than getting soup or salad followed immediately by the main course. The staff a Alexander's know the perfect time to deliver the courses without making you feel rushed. We will definitely be going back and it will be sooner rather than later.

We were on vacation and chose J. Alexander’s for our last night’s dinner. My moms steak wasn’t cooked correctly and the manager went out of her way to make sure it got done right. They comped us dessert and coffee and everyone was just nicer than could be.
Would go there again in a heartbeat. Great place and outstanding service.

I’m a big fan of J Alexanders, but it seems like the food has been off the past two visits. I order my steaks medium, but even at medium the steak was dry and very little pink. French fries were cold as well. The only thing I liked on my last visit was the macaroni and cheese.

Per usual, J. Alexander's was amazing. Honestly, I have NEVER had bad service or food at the Livonia location or the Haggerty location. Our waiter was sweet and kind. The power went out for about 2 minutes. She was putting in my appetizer when the power went out. Instead of putting it in when the power came on, she just gave it to us for free.
