We've eaten at Alexander's twice and this last meal was to celebrate our birthdays. Service was impeccable and the food is always excellent.

Alexander's remains my favorite for a special dinner out. It is a dining experience best enjoyed with people you want to share a fun evening with. Waitstaff are attentive but never intrusive or pretentious.
