I was not too fond of my server.
Her infrequency of checking on us made me dislike the experience.
She gave me my bill when I was ready to order a dessert and we had a tag her down to ask questions.
I strongly feel a restaurant with this caliber should never deal with the waitstaff this poorly.
She wasn’t rude but she lacks personality and showed nap much caring about her customers.

We were seated quickly with a reservation. Food was delicious, servers were good but seemed rushed. Our fellow diner asked for a separate check but our waitress forgot and seemed irritated.

The food and service were very good. Our reservation was honored on time. The place was very busy on a Friday night and quite noisy, not relaxing. We ordered tuna burgers, rare ahi tuna and halibut. The tuna and halibut were delicious. I would go back but not on a weekend.

We had a reservation in everything went very smooth. Ordered soup & salad first (less than 10min), steaks were will done (less than 20 min o get to the table) Dessert took less than 5 minutes afterwards. The service was unbelievably excellent! We'll come back here least 2 times per month.

Totally ignored by waitress. Plates from appetizers and multiple empty cups still on table when she brought us the bill. Had to ask for condiments twice. Our service that night was horrible! At one point she was totally mia for at least 20 minutes.

My steak was terrible even after I sent it back.
There is a recognizable difference between the service at the West Bloomfield location and the Livonia location. The Dining experience at the Livonia location is much better.

J Alexander's is always my go to place for meeting with the ladies for lunch! Troy and West Bloomfield have great locations for a little shopping after lunch. Livonia is my favorite location because of outstanding service! The menu has a large variety of choices. Food is fresh and delicious!
Never disappointed.

Experienced fast service and the food was excellent. Prime Rib was perfectly done. Only drawback on a mid-week night at the dinner hour, the ambient noise made it difficult to carry on a conversation.

The service was terrible. As usual, the server was poorly trained. Orders were wrong and clearly not checked before leaving the kitchen. One salad came with wrong type of chicken, no avocado despite request, and literally no dressing. Server then brought the wrong type of chicken yet again and brought the wrong dressing (and only a tiny portion). Soft drink was not re-filled, nor was a re-fill offered. Dessert was not offered. When the bill came, it contained a $15.00 charge for an item that we were told was not on the menu, and thus did not receive. Yes, the item was removed, but it is just another example of the server not caring enough to check for accuracy.

Very noisy, tables are close together and they kept sitting ppl in the section who were having loud conversations and we needed a place that was moderate noise for a business meeting. All other times I have been it has been a moderate noise level so that wasn’t very good for us but

The prime rib which this restaurant is known for was a generous portion but overcooked, dry, salty and lacking flavor. The salad and potatoes were very good.

Food was pretty good but maybe not up to the premium pricing. Service was very prompt but we were there early. The only restaurant I have been to in a while that doesn’t start you out with bread or something. The clientele at the time we were there were somewhat loud, but overall good time.

Appetizer was delivered the same time as the entree.
Marinated steak was a little tough, but the flavor was good.
Overall we enjoyed the meal, but it wasn’t worth the expense.

Although we have eaten there several times our food - although tasty- was not hot this time. We did not send it back because we felt it would come back well done. The smashed potatoes were just luke warm as well.

The Steak Maui I ordered was very fatty, the chicken my date ordered was dry and over cooked. This was my 1st time at this restaurant but I've been to one North if Chicago where I was impressed which brought me to this location close to home. I'll try again but a different location next time but I a bit saddened by the experience.
