Alexander's on 30th
DELISH!My hubby and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Alexander's last weekend. The food was wonderful! he only negative note was that they were just too busy. We had reservations but they were so far behind we ate at the bar. I believe that graduation party's were the reason, so I won't hold that against them!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceWe were a party of 4 and everyone in our party loved our dishes. Food was incredible, and service was good too. It was a little loud because the place was packed and full of energy, but not too loud that we couldn't talk. Was a great dinner.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite date spotAlexander's is a classic in our neighboorhood. I love the food and the service6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe're in LOVEMy fiance and I can't believe it's taken us so long to dine here! We always walk by and live a short 10 minute walk away. We finally came in on my birthday with our family and we enjoyed every bit of the experience from the service, to the meal, to the ambiance. Every dish ordered was unique and enjoyable. We will definitely return!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDaughters graduationWe went with cousins down from LA and OC to celebrate my daughters graduation, our table was beautiful and our server attentive and wonderful, the food was outstanding, the cousins were extremely impressed, We always have the nut and cheese board, and the Sea Bass is delicious. The great food, ambiance and service from the host to our server made our special night even better.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely restaurantThe only problem I had with this restaurant was the parking. The lot is very small and very little parking is available withing easy walking outside of the lot. This might discouraged people which would be a pity because the restaurant is charming, the food was excellent with generous portions, and the service was quite good. It did get a little noisy inside the restaurant, which is very clever about maximizing its small space. There is also outside eating but it was closed off the night we went. Overall, I had a good experience but I wish it was in a better location.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe live Alexander's on 30th for special occasions its one of my favorite places to eat! The food and service are always outstanding...6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was amazing! EveryoneThis place was amazing! Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was awesome...busy busy place, even on a Monday! Food was OUTSTANDING and beautifully plated. I highly recommend this place!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMnice Sunday mealAlexander's does well in providing a really nice atmosphere. We sat in a large banquette which was perfect for our party of 4. We could actually hear each other in conversation, a rarity in most restaurants.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYumm-o!I have wanted to eat here for years!!! This place has had great reviews in the past, and still continues to do so. The food was very, very good. Servers are friendly. LOVE the atmosphere! You can't really go wrong here.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Surprise...Booked here through OpenTable - for a celebration during the Rock N Roll Marathon event in San Diego...it was such a pleasant experience and find. We were a party of 16 and the experience was exceptional from the seating, our waiter - Eric was delightful and didn't miss a beat, to the wonderful cuisine. I use the word cuisine because the food was that good. Trying to please 16 people of all age groups from 3 yrs to 84 yrs old is not an easy thing to do, but Alexander's did it! Definitely recommend and will be back next time we're in SD...What a hidden neighborhood gem...Kudos, Alexander's on 30th!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA San Diego mustWe don't get down south too often but when we do, we make sure to include a stop at Alexander's on 30th. Skip the downtown dinner scene and head up to North Park. Best food and best service of anywhere I've been to in San Diego.
Any restaurant could stand to learn a few things from Alexander and how he runs his business. World class in every sense of the word.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyIf you're looking for the perfect romantic restaurant in San Diego, this is the place. From the deco/ambience to the service this restaurant screams romantic. From the moment you walk in you know you're in for an experience. We started with the roasted garlic and Brie cheese with garlic bread. If you're garlic and cheese lover this is the perfect starter. With warm bread, garlic and cheese, every bite melted in my mouth. I had the Baked Vodka Bolognese. This was absolutely amazing. There were beautifully cooked mushrooms with sausage chunks in a Roma vodka sauce and of course the rigatoni which was perfectly cooked. I wish I'd gotten the Chef's name so I could say thank you for a beautiful dinner.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLoooooved!I am so glad we found Alexander's! We went for a bachelorette dinner and the staff was super nice and accommodating, the food delicious, oh and they gave us a complimentary glasses of wine! Sat on the outside patio, gorgeous! The movie playing against the wall was a sweet surprise! We loved everything about it and look forward to coming to Alexander's on a regular basis now!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhite Room Pizza - excellentWhile the service wasn't quite up-to-par, the food was excellent. Our table was off the beaten path, so the server didn't quite give it the attention we were used to with Eric. We will request him next time.
The feta pesto appetizer was great, as was his chicken picatta and my white room pizza. That pizza is incredible. Can't wait to go back again for more.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMloved itFrom the lovely selection of wines and appetizers to main dishes it was a wonderful experience5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNorth Park GemLove this place, indoors or out. Perfect for the girls or with a date. Fantastic food. Knowledgeable staff. I live just 4 blocks away and consider it a "selling point" for the neighborhood.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBaked vodka bolognese wasBaked vodka bolognese was amazing! Loved the atmosphere! Service was ok--nothing special, but good. We will definitely be back!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDivineski!!!!!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 place for a date.I have been to Alexander's twice at always enjoyed myself and the food. The staff is very friendly and attentive. It is great for dates.5/2/2013 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 AMNeighborhood Gem in San DiegoLovely neighborhood venue with lots of energy, ambiance, and good food.

too noisy for my gf...but, to their credit, she was not feeling well overall (aside from the restaurant).4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThree Year AnniversaryThis is comment I sent:
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. I would go back again and again but I use open table to reserve a seat.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Alexander's! Great energy,Loved Alexander's!
