Diner Reviews
  • "Fish was overcooked. Pasta was salty and too oily."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed the food at Alexander's but was very disappointed in the ambiance. My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary and was expecting a romantic, upscale experience. Our table was in the corner of the room with flies everywhere. For such a high price I would think a clean fly free environment is a guarantee."

  • "We came for a special occasion for 17 ladies and we were all very impressed. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was spectacular. We will definitely consider coming back for special occasions as well as romantic dates or just drinks with the girls."

  • "Reservation was schedule for 915pm When we got there they told us on sunday they close at 9pm. So why they give reservations through open table at 9 pm."

  • "We like Alexander's a lot and are usually there once a month for dinner and it's usually very good, this past Saturday, the food was just exceptional, the Pasta special was incredible and the entire meal was excellent, it is a great place to go with your wife/girlfriend and friends and have a great night of food, drinks and relaxing."

  • "We frequently go to Alexander's, even though it's about a 20 min. drive for us. This time, we had Rex as our waiter. He's fantastic, as are almost everyone who works there. Both my husband and I are trying to avoid pasta, so we asked for our meals with vegetables rather than pasta. Rex was happy to comply. Both entrees were delicious. We think Alexander's is one of the most attractive restaurants in San Diego. We are never disappointed."

  • "We love coming here on Mondays for the $1 beers and the special on Pizza. Went on a Sat. to celebrate my gf bday and the service was excellent and so was the ambiance. Would def. go back."

  • "Our service was average unfortunately. He forgot a couple things we asked for. Seemed like he was avoiding us, or just antisocial. We don't like feeling rushed when were eating or ordering. Ordered a bottle of wine and was hanging out eating a app, and it seemed like he just wanted us to order our entrees immediately. Loved the ambience of the restaurant and the food! Ordered the Caesars Salad, and a seafood tortellini pasta and they both tasted like love. Everything else was spot on, just wasn't too crazy about our server. Lack of service seems to be a north park trend though."

  • "We go to Alexander's every year for my birthday, special occasions, & when we want a guaranteed great experience, & perfect food. We have tried out different Italian restaurants in San Diego, ( I'm a born, & raised New York Italian) and we live 2 blocks over from little Italy, but we always come back to Alexander's. Nobody comes close. They are the best!"

  • "Some of the best Italian I've had since Rome! No, really, very very good! Wish we could upload the pics we took of the food. The shrimp risotto was out of the park. Mild red sauce with tomatoes and broccoli. The seafood pasta was spot on! Bread, oil and cheese to compliment the meal and excellent wines!"

  • "I had sea bass with roasted red potatoes & carrots (one of the specials). It was very good. Chocolate hazelnut cake for dessert was great! A friend had the other special, scallops & tiger shrimp with pasta. She loved it! Our other friend had lasagna (not sure how she felt about it)."

  • "My wife and I have been to Alexander's on 30th a number of times. In fact, we went on our last anniversary as well. When I made the open table reservation and it asked for "special occasion," I put "2 year anniversary." Last year, they brought out a nice dessert that said "happy anniversary." This year, nothing. In fact, they sat us right next to two little children as one of them kept kicking the seat. The food was amazing, as usual. The service was terrible. We waited over 1 hour, on a Tuesday night for our food. The lady took forever to even bring us water. Sadly, we are probably not interest in returning to Alexander's. My wife was quite upset with the service and the lack of acknowledgement of the special occasion."

  • "We've had dinner at Alexander's several times and it has always been our first choice when recommending a place to have a special occasion dinner (e.g. birthday, anniversary). This time, however, it did not live up to our expectations for a couple of reasons. We recommended the Milan Mac&Cheese to our friends, who had never been there before, and a few tried the dish. Even though their were multiple orders for the same thing, the plates ranged from way to much cheese to hardly any. A few people a ordered beer and they had no glasses which is not that big a deal but then they had like one left of each kind on the menu. I'm sure we will go back again because it's one of our favs it was just a disappointing visit."

  • "The pictures of the food looked more promising on yelp. The food compared greatly to the Olive Garden with tons more salt and garlic added. $26 for a generic cream sauce that tasted exactly like my friend's $16 cream sauce entrée was a bit of a let down. The ambiance was absolutely stunning, and I would recommend this place for date nights or outings with friends. Just skip the expensive eats, have a cocktail and enjoy the scenery."

  • "I must say, I was expecting a nice meal, but this place far exceeded my expectations. The baked feta had excellent and balanced flavors, the mussels were perfectly prepared, and the gorgonzola pasta was phenomenal. To top it off, our server was among the best I'd ever had. He read our expectations perfectly. We brought an old bottle of champagne to celebrate a graduation, and he prepared and presented the wine so nicely to us. He was extremely gracious, and when you match that to the great food and beautiful ambiance, I find it hard to see any reason why I wouldn't recommend this place 100 times over. Cheers."

  • "I have been a few times there and have had great service very at-tentative and have even been surprise, but last night was the first time the service was Laim our waitres was not friendly and seem un happy with us. We were celebrating our anniversary and did not need any server with attitude."

  • "Took a group of 15 here yesterday for my son's UCSD graduation dinner. At first glance upon arriving and seeing the eclectic neighborhood, I was a little unsure, but wow were we blown away! First of all, the restaurant property is beautifully done and decorated in all white. Service was amazing and fast, and the food was awesome! The shrimp, scallops and pasta special (with prosciutto and peas, etc.) was a top choice. So good. They also have this amazing desert of vanilla gelato with espresso that you pour over it; OMG, I could eat that every day! This place is a gem."

  • "Made a reservation and requested a booth for a romantic evening with my man. We got seated right away, on a booth, which I loved it. I absolutely love the white decor, especially as I got dark and the candles gave the room that special romantic touch. My server was Nigel and he was a perfect mix of good service, friendly personality but without being too intrusive, since we were on a date night. (Place gets really noisy, tho) Their wine list is a bit disappointing, with only 3 great varieties/vintages of Italian wines, which I consider poor for an Italian restaurant. The prices however, are fair. We ordered the suffed mushroom for appetizer (nothing extraordinary), white room pizza (the bomb!) and seafood pasta (fantastic)."

  • "Our 3rd time at Alexander's, this time we brought guests because we really love this place! We have eaten inside and out but really would always opt for outside if available. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly. Ambience is great in both. Do love white tablecloths..."

  • "This was our second brunch visit. It was just as awesome as the first in all regards. We chose new items off the menu and shared and we enjoyed every bite! Beautifully presented and wonderful flavor balance to all offerings. The complementary Mimosas are a very nice touch along with being extremely good. Bloody Mary is one of the best around! All the staff is warm, welcoming and very friendly. They are accommodating to your food requests and make sure you are satisfied. "

  • "Was there for my 2 yr anniversary was a place my wife has always been interested in eating at. Food was good service was terrible. Had to ask for water refills never came to check to see if appetizer was good then came to us 20 min later saying he had a computer problem what was our orders again. Also was brought a beer menu and tried to order 3 different beers and was told you were out of them. Was just a disaster of a time and ruined my anniversary. "

  • "This restaurant's interior was beautiful--all white, very classy. We came with a party of 4 people and they sat us outside. A little tight in the corner but we asked for another chair so it turned out perfect. Food was amazing! We ordered bruschettas for appetizers and shared all our dishes: vodka bolognaise, tuscany seafood pasta and clams linguine. The meals were divine! It was definitely a good find, quite a gem in a neighborhood area. "

  • "Alexander's has really got an improved feel to it since they've expanded the size and added the back patio. The food was great - our salad (beets, avocado, etc.) was huge and tasty. Awesome mussels. The 'Kathleen' pasta was a little intense on the pesto for me, but the wife loved it. Also fantastic service. "

  • "I been to Alexanser's twice. The first time with a few friends and the vibe was so trendy, romantic, and food was great!!!! The second time I took a date and to start off they took a while to sit us, even with reservations. The service was ok, the food was ok. What I didn't like the second time was the crowd!!!! People were having dinner in shorts and flip flops :( ugh"

  • "Alexander's on 30th ambience is peaceful! It's clean grey walls white white furnishing and decor make the food pop not only in your mouth! Great Italian cuisine for any date night. The service, while everyone working there is attractive, is also friendly and inviting!! I always enjoy Alexander's!! Sit outside if you can!"

  • "The food, service and ambience are all what I'd expect of Old Venice's little brother, Alexanders. Each dining area is carefully laid out and offers several options for private or more open dining. We sat in a small rounded-corner area with three tables that seemed a little noisy at times but we'll definitely be back. "

  • "We made our reservations online and it was a good thing we did! We were seated right away and the waiters were very attentive. The food was delicious! I had the lobster ravioli, which was wonderful! My husband enjoyed his chicken piccata and my sister-in-law loved her white pizza with all the toppings! When the waiter heard that it was our anniversary, he brought us dessert with a candle in it! IT was also delicious, although we were already quite full! We will definitely go there again!"

  • "I made a reservation for a group of ten for my 40th birthday dinner to sit outside on the patio. When I arrived I was told I would not be able to be seated outside because they had recently washed everything down and everything was wet. The dinner and wine was very good (we had the mussels, the feta bake, their fish special and a few salads). However, toward the end of dinner we had a hard time getting our server's attention. We were out of water and couldn't get it filled. Also, we would have gladly ordered another bottle or two of wine but we couldn't get anyone's attention. They were also out of the tiramisu, but weren't offered the dessert list again to choose something else. We were disappointed in the service."
