We used our GroupOn coupon at Alexender's with some trepidation. Several previous reviews panned the food, the service and the attitude of the hostess. We were pleasantly surprised by our visit. We called the restaurant to request a reservation, they called us back promptly. We were about 10 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic, but the hostess was very welcoming and pleasant. The waitress was well-trained and, although she spit out the specials (5 or 6 of them) very rapidly, she graciously went back and repeated each. When I ordered the crab cakes, which were not on special, she was enthusiastic about them. My husband ordered the lamb chops, always a trick decision at a sea food house. I also ordered a drink and an appetizer. Both were served promptly, along with excellent rolls and butter. The entrees came promptly after that and were well-prepared and well-presented. Should have resisted dessert, but tried the white chocolate cheesecake with raspberry sauce. It was an expensive night out, but well worth it. We will go back.
