From the moment we entered the front door of Alexander's, we knew we were we in for an amazing experience. Our friends had arranged the evenings reservation for our group of 14, who were celebrating a 5 Year reunion. Bjorn and Tessie gave us the most incredible service and the food was fantastic. As a restaurant owner, I give Alexander's... More

I went with a group I use to work with and we all had a great meal. The crab cakes are the best I have ever eaten. I preordered because the usually do not have them on the weekends. Every dish is great. They put a lot of thought in the food and presentation. I have been going here for... More

We went to Alexander's for dinner Saturday evening and could not have been more pleased with our visit. The service was impeccable, and the food was outstanding. This area has many fine restaurants and Alexander's is at the top of the list.

About 10 of us from company meetings held at Hotel Roanoke had a reservation for dinner. Gourmet menu with more selection than Lucky's. Excellent service and attention. I had one of the filets and it was cooked properly. Serving size was adequate. Rather pricey. Overall a nice restaurant.

We were a group of 8 which meant different entrees and a large table. Once again Alexanders proved themselves to be up to the challenge and excellent in all respects. Special requests handled wonderfully, each meal a delight. Unobtrusive but attentive service, superb food and wonderful wines made our evening truly memorable. Cannot recommend Alexanders highly enough...never disappoints!

Nice ambiance. Real tablecloths and napkins. No paper. And the food is really good too. We went in the middle of the week and had no trouble being seated.

When the word "consistency" was coined, it must have been Alexander's they were thinking of. You could also use reliability, satisfaction or even excellence. Few restaurants in the Roanoke area match Alexander's predictability for excellent food, impeccable service and an overall great dining experience. If you're a Roanoke visitor, don't be fooled by the quiet, unassuming storefront appearance. Locals know... More

The food is the best in Roanoke and the restaurant has stood the test of time. The service is 5 star. The house wines by the glass and the wine list are the only Achilles tendon.This is my go to place before theater, anniversaries, birthdays and any special occasion as well as when my wife and I plan a date....
