I haven’t done a restaurant review in a while, which makes me sad because trying out new places is one of my favorite hobbies, if you could call it that. I had seen Alexander Pierce on Yelp for quite some time, but it looked like a fancy place and I felt that I needed a special occasion to go. I decided that my birthday at the beginning of April was the perfect time to go. I made reservations weeks in advance, I would recommend this big time!
When I tell you this place is nice, whoooa it’s nice! Private lounge, live singer, you can even get a membership there. The restaurant entrance is located at the back of the building. When you pull up you don’t even realize it’s a restaurant. Then you see the big iron gate with ‘Alexander’ written on it and the beautiful entrance. We were seated quickly and the server was incredibly nice.
When you come to a restaurant like this you have to go all out and that’s what we did.
The pretzel-crusted fried pepper jack was a special at the time, but if it is on the menu when you go ORDER IT. It’s salty, it’s spicy, and it’s the ultimate savory bite. Do not get me started on this meatball. It’s stuffed with gooey cheese, served with a delicious sauce and toasted bread. It could be a meal itself. I recall saying about 10 times ‘this is the best meatball I’ve ever eaten’. And that’s not hyperbole, I truly believe that it was. Onto the main entree, the ribeye. OH MY GOD. I am a med-rare girl, but at some places you go, that means medium or well. That’s not what I want, no no. Alexander Pierce did this ribeye so right, I can’t even do it justice. I added the peppercorn demi-glace, it did not even need that. The steak was so perfectly done that its juices were the only sauce I needed, that’s how you know a steak is done right.
If you are looking for a fancy night out, friends get together, date night, or whatever it is, please check this place out. I think it should be a staple in Akron dining. You could pick this restaurant up and put it in any big city and it would stand out, but I am happy that it is standing out here in Akron, OH.
Eaten with Love,
