Everything I've had here tastes like they used a can opener to get at it Terrible. I'd only tell me enemies to go here, maybe not even them.

We took the Greek plater for two. We had plenty food and a good taste of a cross section of menu items: pita bread with amazing humus, moussaka, spanakopita , lamb, chicken skewers, potatoes, and Greek salad. Definitely recommend this place and we'll be back!

Can't beat the great food at Alexandra's! The portions are huge and the prices are fair. Can't complain about the good looking servers either ;) Can't wait to go back!

Whenever we have a family dinner outing, we always end up at Alexandra's Bistro! The food, service and atmosphere are great! We always start off with Saganaki. It is so delicious! Everything on the menu is so inviting but I usually end up with Kleftiko. Not sure of the spelling but it is lamb shank served with rice, Greek potato,... More

I used to work down the road and when asked where I wanted to go, I most often voted for Alexandra's. Love the chicken souvlaki and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Recently took my family here after many years away and knock myself for waiting so long to return as it was just as enjoyable.

Was here tonight with a group of 8. All meals were excellent. Server was friendly and efficient. Drinks were good too. We had the platter for 2 which was excellent enough food for 3 people. Highly recommend this lovely Restarant.

Thank Daphne D
