Diner Reviews
  • "Went to celebrate my Birthday with family. We had a comfortable table for the nine of us. The service and food was excellent and in walking distance from our house. Would highly recommend."

  • "We had a three course meal for my fiancés birthday. Everything was delicious, and the beer was very good. The only negative thing is the courses took a very long time to come out. We didn't have our phones out at all so we didn't take a long time to order, but going from the appetizer to the main course took an hour. Not that we minded; the food was perfection and it was very romantic. Just expect your meal to take about two hours from start to finish."

  • "This is a real gem. Started going there when they had coupons. They are much too successful to give out coupons now. Good outdoor and great indoor ambiance. Friendly, competent service. Very accomodating. Will go there again and again."

  • "This was my third time visiting Alexander's and I will definitely be back. I've gotten different entree's each time and they've always been delicious. The service is great, the ambiance is very romantic yet it works great for groups and birthday celebrations as well. They've got a wide variety of dishes so that you can bring your most picky eater and your gourmet foodie friend. I've always been able to get reservations there to meet my parties needs, which isn't always an easy task. I don't know exactly how long this restaurant has been in business but I hope its here to stay!"

  • "We have eaten here many times. Each time it is more impressive. The outdoor dining is the best. The white of the tables against the dark of the night is very romantic. Service is wonderful, no one is rushing you. The food is terrific!! And the vintage movie is oh so much fun."

  • "Alexander's is great for date night, when you're willing to spend extra just because. The food is delicious and the portions are under control, but the prices are ridiculous for the relatively amateur service and the tight space between tables."

  • "We are so happy Alexander's now serves brunch, it was a delightful experience. The french toast was delicious & the eggs with pancetta was also. Top that off with a Bellini & your set! The DJ was a nice touch for Sunday brunch but was a tad too loud."

  • "We went to Alexander's for my husband's birthday since it had outdoor seating, but unfortunately we were rained out. The inside was very cozy and nice, and the food and service were excellent. The lobster ravioli is absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend it."

  • "Been to Alexander's multiple times, the food is always fantastic. Our four top sat on the outdoor patio for the first time, it was quiet and spacious. Food was delicious as always. Our table had the 38 special and Theodore's fix pizzas, as well as the spicy Caesar salad, and the Millian mac & cheese with bacon. We started with 2 of the bruschetta as well! The salad was not as spicy or garlicky as it's been in the past, but still a very good Caesar. The pizzas were both excellent and the mac & cheese is so rich and a wonderful treat. Our server Rex was timely with the wine service and made our evening great. We will be back"

  • "Came for Mon. HH special but were told 40 min wait. We had 7:30 res but they don't accept them for HH. We opted to dine off reg menu. We were hungry! Shared the Baby Butter Lettuce Cobb which we liked but it came with mixed greens, not Butter Lettuce. We split the Creole Shrimp pasta special that didn't taste Creole and we didn't care for. Didn't care for the surprise $26 price either. Service was excellent!"

  • "The new Sunday Brunch menu is absolutely fantastic. We are visit Alexander's for dinner often and were not disappointed in the least to try the brunch menu on their "opening" Sunday. Lazy Lasagna is amazing. Would care for a vegan choice on the menu."

  • "Great service and phenomenal food! We had such a fantastic time and were well accommodated for a party of 12 + 1 high chair. Our waiter kicked butt, probably the best service that we have received in recent months in the San Diego counties at different restaurants. We absolutely love Alexander's, we like to go there for special occasions. Must try gang, the food, ambience, and service are second to none."

  • "My son recommended Alexanders on 30th for a dinner for a group of 4. My daughter and I arrived first, were greeted cordially and immediately seated. While waiting for my son and his girlfriend to arrive, the waiter took our drink orders and patiently waited. When we were all there he explained the specials and took the other two drink orders. Service was attentive and efficient without being overly intrusive. Food preparation and presentation was top notch. All service people were efficient and friendly. Food quality was also top notch and the seasoning was great. Overall we had a wonderful experience"

  • "The food here was great here. All of the pasta dishes we had were very flavorful and the pizza was christy and had a good amount of toppings. The only downfall, because it is all made in time, is that the food takes a while to come out so a quick lunch or dinner here isn't possible. To me that's fine as I know to set aside the time to come here to eat....and trust me, it's worth it. Also, I have the service 4 stars because the night I visited, they were very busy this it took a long time for the server to come around with drinks, our bill, etc. at this time I'm going to assume that was an anomaly and not a standard."

  • "Sadly, after many many years loving this restaurant and the good food, repeated bad service has caused us to agree we won't be back. The management clearly hasn't trained it's staff properly and aside from our bus boy, no one seemed to care. We made a reservation, were placed by the dish washing kitchen, waited 10+ minutes and had then had to ask for water. Our waiter was inept and careless, had the bus boy take our order, we had to ask for everything that should have been delivered and waits were long, he was MIA except when we were given the check. He didn't even return to collect it. This was the case at our prior visit with another server. Top to bottom sad service. The food was excellent as always but at this point, doesn't matter.:("

  • "Our family has been going to Alexander's for years and always has had a great overall experience with both food and service. However, this time appetizers came out too late, after salads, and dinner followed very quickly after finally finishing apps and salads. Would have liked to enjoy all parts of our meal at a leisurely pace. Service was nothing special, food brought too quickly and then we were left for long periods and had very short check ins. Overall, not the service we have enjoyed that made each visit feel special. Hopefully this will be a one time deal and we can return and enjoy once again."

  • "Our reservation was handled very promptly. The service was great. The food was also very good. This was our fourth time there. The parking was the only the only problem. A very small lot behind the place"

  • "The food is amazing. Great pasta... my favorite Ceasar salad around. I had a pizza and ceasar with a great red wine. Big pricate comfy booths inside... outside is a pretty patio."

  • "We had heard all sorts of good things, but we rarely go out for Italian, much less in North Park. We made a last minute reservation and walked over. We were seated promptly, with the option of sitting farther from a noisier group, which we appreciated. The food was delicious, the wait staff was attentive, and the location was great. We felt a little underdressed for a weeknight, but we'll definitely keep it on our list for quiet nights out."

  • "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."

  • "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 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 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 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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
