Our group of 8 had dinner reservations at 5:00PM before 7:30 PM play. Restaurant is very close to Cleveland Theater District. Food, service was good.

We've been to Alex's three times and have been happy each time. Decent menu and wine list. This place is so convenient when going to the theatre. Less pricey than Cowell and Hubbard. Reasonable service.

Arrived for early dinner before a show. They could not find our reservation, they were able to pull together some tables quickly. Our group ordered soups, appetizers and salads. 2 bowls of soup were cold. The other food was good.
