Alexander's on 30th
Divineski!!!!!Simply put-the EXPERIENCE was so much fun. The setting -beautiful. The service-friendly,efficient. and well informed.....and attentive. The food was delicious-all the way around. And the presentation of the courses was imaginative and unique. We enjoyed ourselves to the hilt.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was Jenny, whoOur server was Jenny, who was adorable, energetic and very friendly, albeit a little over-worked this evening. Along with our table and several other couple / four person tables, she was also responsible for two birthday events; one table had 8 and the other table had 10. Jenny worked hard to keep us in her sights and to provide excellent service.
We started with the cheese plate of the day. Unfortunately, the server who brought us the plate did not tell us what type of cheese it was -- some goat cheese, we presumed -- but there was only 3 small toasts for the cheese, fig jam and nuts. Bring more, please! The food and wine were excellent, and the staff works well as a team. Just too noisy for us, due to the large parties, perhaps.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and really goodGreat food and really good service. Was glad to find this hidden gem and will be back soon!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCute neighborhood spotLove the white on white decor. Great food and good wine selection. Very romantic, elegant, yet still comfortable. Really enjoyed the patio with the fountain and especially enjoyed watching Breakfast at Tiffany's.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect date nightAlexander's on 30th was the perfect spot for date night with my husband. We sat on the outside patio area for dinner and the decor and ambience was so romantic. For dinner we split the black mussels as an appetizer and the burrata and prosciutto salad. The mussels were delicious and the salad was green and refreshing. We also split the entree which was one of the night's specials- pappardelle pasta with tiger shrimp and scallops with a tomato based sauce. The meal was rounded out with a bottle of chardonnay and a slice of heaven (can't remember which one) from Extraordinary Desserts. Overall the meal was ah-ma-zing, the service top-notch and the restaurant was beautiful inside and out. Highly recommend this place!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat.The restaurant was wonderful. Food was delicious, and service was great as well. We had a very nice evening. Only wish is that they would have more vegetarian options. But other than that we loved it5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this neighborhood gem!Although it takes us 20 mins. to drive there, Alexander's is one of our favorite spots. The food is always excellent, and we LOVE the staff. Everyone's so friendly and welcoming. It's one of the few places that still has a "buzz" after 9:30 PM. Most restaurants are getting ready to close at that hour.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat as alwayshave yet to be disappointed. i believe this 7pm reservation was the earliest we've had so far, and it was the quietest its been for us. always a pleasure.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceWonderful experience for family birthdays or a quiet dinner.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Most Excellent Dining ExperienceI am never dissappointed when I dine at Alexander's. The ambiance is beautiful. It's a great place to make memorable dining moments. The food is always amazing. My favorite in the Macaroni and cheese...with four cheeses, it's the best! The 30th Street Salad is delish! Monday nights offer Happy Hour Beer Specials. I usually eat more than I drink I know that sounds self indulgent but the food is scrumdiddlyumptious!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerI had about 12 of us to celebrate my Birthday!

I hope this reaches you:
Three Year Anniversary,
Thank you for the surpass service tonight. I wanted this night to be a great ending to the day of celebration for my girlfriend. My server was excellent though I cannot remember her name. She was genuinely nice to us. Oh and the host was great as well he made sure the sun was not in our eyes while we ate our dinner. From start to finish was unbelievable. And I had to tip the cooks because I am one. I know the hardwork and sacrifice that goes in. So I am very appreciative anywhere I go. But tonight this establishment raised the bar. We will return and I thank you for making my girl smile. Take care4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made a reservation throughWe made a reservation through open table for 7:45pm. When we arrived (10 minutes late due to parking issues) the only table available was a wobbly little two top shoved between the bar and the kitchen entrance. We didn't mind, we were just hungry.
We started with the roasted red pepper bruschetta which had fresh quality greens, crispy bread, perfectly roasted peppers. Then the Lobster Ravioli and Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs came out. I don't eat red meat or pork, so rarely do I get to enjoy spaghetti and meatballs. Both were fantastic. The sauce on the ravioli was complex and delicious. At the end of the meal, the host offered to buy us dessert for being good sports about the wobbly table. Get the chocolate cake. Period. ;)4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSharing the corner of UpasSharing the corner of Upas and 30th with Cardamon (bakery) seems a cruel twist of fate for any upscale eatery - who would want to compete with one of San Diego's best daytime bakery restaurants? Well Alexander's doesn't compete, it compliments the breakfasts and lunches of the sweetest dishes and flavorful combinations of spices at Cardamon by providing that perfect blend of atmosphere and delicious food at Alexander's. My wife and I went for her birthday and she was extremely impressed. I can't say enough about the food - each course was greatly satisfying. We know a highly regarded chef in town that has tried to recreate Alexander's garlic bread, it is that good! 9 out of 10.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our meal here.We enjoyed Alexander's on 30th and will definitely return. The menu offers some unusual combinations and taste pairings; the pear salad was outstanding. Plate presentations were artistic and attractive. We plan on trying a pizza next time as they looked very good on their way to tables around us.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlexander's is a wonderfulAlexander's is a wonderful place with great food and Alexander is a gracious host.

The Food is wonderful, the servers helpful with the wine list and menu items. I love the outdoor patio area, the the water and fire features. The baked pastas are right on spot.
