We have traditionally visited this location multiple times per week. The service at this location has become horrible. They cannot keep waiters. As a result, they constantly have new, inexperienced wait staff providing very poor service. Order specifications are routinely ignored by the kitchen., even after a wrong plate is sent back once. It is happening far too frequently to be bad luck. There is an obvious lack of leadership. They cannot charge their high prices and expect people to return when the service is so poor. We plan to start avoiding this restaurant.

We both ordered the swordfish special. The fish portion was quite large cooked nearly perfectly and seasoned in a lively manner.

The couscous which is always good was absolutely fabulous.

Was only disappointed to see lower grade greens mixed in with the alex salad - along with a recent price increase - bad combo.

It was date night, with the wife. I was taking her out to someplace where we had to dress up a bit nicer than jeans and a polo shirt. The food was great, as usual. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection, and had a smokey quality to it. My wife said her haddock was spicy, but not bad.

I was sad that they didn't have the Eos moscato. But the bottle of Firestone Riesling we had instead was good enough.

At the end, we decided to split a chocolate cake. This was a great idea, since it was certainly sized for two people.

We had a great time, and keep J. Alexander's in mind for special occasions.

Reservation thru Open Table specially marked, and given priority. Didn't have to wait much beyond the reservation time. Great service, good ambiance. Appetizers thru dessert - all servings very good. Will recommend to anyone for a casual dinner experience.

I love J. Alex's fish tacos too much - I never even order anything else any more (except for a side of roasted beets). Enjoyed a family dinner with my vegetarian nice who picked the restaurant because of all the veggie options. Everyone left happy - and full.

The food is always consistent.
The salmon is always top notch, and love their veggie burger. Grilled artichokes are just great.
The noise level is high, and often crowded. But this is our "go to" place when we are in the mood. We always know what we will be getting. Not inexpensive, but worth the cost.

I had not been to J. Alexander's in several years because I had found it to be uninspiring but I'm SO GLAD that my friends and I ended up there earlier this week. Our wait staff was attentive and very helpful and the food was plentiful and tasty. I'm happy to say that I will return to J. Alexander's soon!

Our waiter and food once we got seated was great. We made a reservation and had to wait almost 20 minutes while we stood there and watched call ahead and walk ins taken before us. Kept asking at hostess stand and was told several times that we were next. It was not until I called over a manager that we were seated. If I am expected to be on time for a reservation or not be seated, I should at least have the same consideration. The hostesses are not very nice. Added note that I eat at a variety of J. Alexander’s from West Bloomfield to troy to Livonia to Palm beach gardens to boca raton. This seems to always happen at West Bloomfield.

Been here countless times. Always have consistently great service. Food and cocktails are second to none. Best steak for the money outside a high end steakhouse. You don’t know what you’re missing. Run don’t walk to get here.

The vent above dripped water onto my girlfriend's food. We were on a date. It made her cry and she wanted to leave. The manager said it was due to AC. A server noticed and said she would retrieve the manager. Beforehand she let another server know who indicated this had happened before. It's worse this wasn't addressed beforehand. I never leave reviews but having something leak onto one's table is simply inexcusable. Please fix this so it doesn't ruin another patrons event.
