Always enjoy food at JA but Friday was an off night, very cold in the restaurant as well as outside. We had an odd table located outside of our server's assigned range so we didn't see much of her making for poor service. No cheesecake or creme brûlée, my two favs. Disappointing visit for me this time!!

Usually the service is great but this visit the service was off. I went to restroom and came back to see that my plate, utensils and drink had been removed. When I received my entree salad it didn't have any dressing on it.

Our party of four included one in a wheelchair. The table held for us was comfortable and was positioned where we could see much of the restaurant. Our server was attentive but allowed us plenty of time to make our selections. My drink from the bar was very good, as was the craft beer my son ordered. Our nachos and cheese was better than average, and the entrees were great. My only complaint would be the noise level, but it was a very busy Friday evening. We were celebrating my son and his wife's rare visit home for Christmas. I probably spent double what I normally spend for a dinner out for four, but I feel the meal and service were excellent.

My husband took me Wednesday for my birthday and I really enjoyed it. We had reservations so we only waited a few minutes to be seated. They were busy, but the service was still good. I had the tiger shrimp and slaw and it was delicious! My husband had the steak and mac and cheese and he said it was very good. Since it was a special occasion, we got the carrot cake. It was warm and melt in your mouth goodness! One of the best versions of carrot cake I have ever had! We will definitely return.

J.Alexander is our favorite restaurant and we try to go to a different one when we can. This was our first time visiting the restaurant in Chattanooga. The food was still great. Our server was not very personable. Not sure if she was new, but we did not let that spoil our experience there. Overall, we enjoyed out meal!

J's has been our "go to" place for years. They offer a good variety on the menu and the quality of both the food and the service is very good. There were four of us on this visit and we had steak, trout, fish tacos, and ahi tuna Asian salad - we took full advantage of the breadth of the menu and all of our meals were nicely done. Pricing has edged up over the last few months, but as long as the total package remains this good we'll keep going back.

J. Alexander's is always great. I do have a complaint about the reservation system. Our last visit was for my wife’s birthday. She expressly wanted to set in one of the curved booths in the back of the restaurant. There was no way to convey preferences via the reservation system. I telephone the restaurant and requested they append our preference to our reservation. Another member of our party arrived before me. We were seated at a table in the noisy center of the restaurant. Obviously the request for a curved booth in the back was not appended to the reservation.
Suggestion / request, add a space for special request in the reservation process and assign a host or hostess to read and heed the requests.

Alexander's delivered once again a great dinner to the family. The shrimp as an appetizer was plentiful and perfectly done. One order was filet which was prepared rare as ordered and was outstanding. My wife ordered the pork tenderloin with spicy sauce which she really enjoyed and my daughter ordered the prime rib which she thought was perfect. Wine list is extensive which we ordered a couple glasses of Cabernet also very good. All in All a perfect dinner out. Highly recommend.

The waitress was amazing. She made sure we were happy with everything, kept our drinks full, and at the end of the meal boxed our food up for us. The food was delicious! I had the New York Strip medium well and it was cooked perfectly and my date had the salmon and she loved it.

Our second time at this particular location. While the food was good and the best cup of coffee I've had in some time, the service was lacking. We had to ask multiple times for bread and it finally arrived after we finished our salads. I believe we should be asked if we want bread rather than the other way around and it should be brought out shortly after being seated. We also had to ask for drink refills each time. This place would get 5 stars from me across the board if the service were better.

My husband and I had a late, quiet dinner here on a Saturday night after running some errands. Still crowded at 7:45, but reservation was honored promptly. We have had lunch here many times but I had forgotten that this is a great place for a glass of wine and a cozy dinner. Food was good, service was lovely.
