    I did not care to cut up a wedge of lettuce that was called salad. The dressing at the bottom on the plate was purported to have blue cheese, but was sadly lacking. Short on fresh vegetables.

    This was our fifth visit to Alexander's and it certainly didn't disappoint. As many times as we'll have them, the hamachi shots are always spectacular. Think I've found a new favorite: the bone-in filet mignon. Servers are always so knowledgeable about the wine list, and actually got to chat with a sommelier this time. Other must-haves: steak tartare, truffle fries, and French-pressed coffee to finish dinner. Will never, ever tire of this place.

  • Our Anniversary Spot
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    We frequent Alexander's every year for our wedding anniversary, and sometimes a couple other occasion during the year as well. The only complaint I have is the small tables that only seat 2 along the back walls. It feels very crammed and too close to other patrons. It's very hard to celebrate a romantic occasion when your neighbors are quite loud and in such close proximity. Between our table and the tables on each side of us, servers/waiters we're constantly coming and going making flow of traffic very obvious. It's quite distracting and noisy.

    Alexander's is absolutely the best place to celebrate a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday. The service is outstanding with lots of little extras - they really make you feel pampered. From beginning to end the food is amazing and your palate will delight in pleasant surprises in tastes and combinations. I look forward to my next visit as I am never disappointed with anything snout the Alexander's experience.

  • The Full Experience
    SecretFoodie
    Dined on 8/14/2014
    There are many high-end dining experiences one can find in and around the San Francisco Bay Area, but very few of them provide what I call "the full experience." Multiple courses, including appetizers, soup/salad, and main entree are the norm, and are quite excellent at this restaurant. To also be served an amuse bouche, an intermezzo, and a take on a petite four (with what is more accurately a "petite three" of an interesting-flavored cotton candy, a gelatin, and a tuile -- all very tasty), really does round out and complete the experience. The dry-aged T-bone with the trio of salts is fantastic, as was the creamed spinach. I don't normally go on about creamed spinach, but from this restaurant, it was worthy of specific praise.

  • Not Outstanding this time
    RavenVIP
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Normally after having dinner at Alexander's ... this is the only restaurant that I repeatedly and regularly rate as Outstanding. However, (for the 1st time) there were issues. Unfortunately I was told by the waitress that a new chef is in charge ... which makes me very concerned for the future. Keep in mind some of these issues may seem small but Alexander's pride's themselves on perfection and the best experience possible. • My favorite Mac N Cheese side has been changed after 9 years and the new one is terrible. Creamy and rich replaced by dry and crunchy. • Several times waiters served and removed from the wrong sides. • My GF's steak was not the right temp. The side was comp'ed (good customer service) however, I can't have it again.

    Alexander's Steakhouse provides a unique blend of Asian Cuisine and American Steak - something which is hard to integrate well. And yet they do it in an absolutely delicious manner all while providing excellent A-level service. It is the perfect place for romantic outings, special occasions, or for groups that want to get together and celebrate something special. Be prepared for the check though, as it is expensive, but more than worth it.

    And that's a good thing when it comes to Alexander's Hamachi shots. My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary at ASH and did it in style by eating at the chefs table in their kitchen. You practically had to roll us out of there after being completely sated with some really good food. To begin, the amuse bouche didn't really amuse us but two surprise chef gifts of a delightful and refreshing cucumber salad with a mint aioli and a generous serving of a perfectly cooked wagyu beef on a cauliflower purée sent our taste buds into a happy dance. Both were done by their sous chef Annie and she gets all the accolades for making the dinner what it was. Always bring your big wallet to ASH but it will usually be worth it.

    My first experience with this place left me wanting to go back. The time around wasn't quite the same. The waiter we had didn't seem to spend much time with us, compared to the neighboring tables. He didn't go through the menu or explain any specials or recommendations, but at tables where evveryone was a repeat customer he seemed to explain everything without even asking, whereas I could barely get enough put of him to explain anything to my party. Just not the consistency I would hope for with a higher end establishment like this.

    I've been to Alexander's many times always had great service. I noticed they did something new when 5 waiters brought out our food at the same time thought it a little gimmicky. Food wasn't a great as other times I had been. Great calamari special should replace the popcorn crab. Bring back angry birds!

    Our server Kitty was fantastic. The pace for when each 'step' took place was perfectly orchestrated, i.e. the amount of time she gave us to look through the menu, the timing of when each course arrived (never felt too slow nor too fast). Food was excellent. Since am not much of a meat person my favorite dish was the beet salad. :-) Meat was nicely cooked to specification.

    A restaurant specializing in steak should never have steak that is not cooked perfectly. I ordered fillet and my date ordered t-bone. My steak arrived perfectly cooked. She ordered her T-bone medium rare and it came medium well to well. Of course they quickly corrected it but that's not the point. This restaurant is expensive and they should know exactly how to cook steak. Having your main dish improperly cooked marred the whole evening. Next time I will go to Manresa.

    Delicious, expertly prepared gourmet food. Lots of staff w/ different servers for specific things, which does make the service slow. So don't be in a hurry. It gets busy and noisy. They serve Wagyu beef, the highest-end beef in Japan. It's expensive and a rare treat there. It's a rare thing to find it served as a regular on the menu. It's incredibly delicious and expensive! They have other types of steak that won't break the bank. Fun things served are tiny and flavorful: appetizer, intermezzo, palate cleanser and cakes and cookies at the end (if you are celebrating a special occasion - they ask you up front if you are). They are itty bitty, the size of a thumbnail to a tablespoon but they taste great and don't fill you up.

    ...I still miss the Foie Gras. I'm a big fan of a good foie gras, and Alexander's made some of the best. So disappointing that California outlawed it. TBH, I used to dine at Alexander's more often back when they had foie gras on the menu. But that's not to say they have some excellent selections now, so delicious they almost help to forget the foie gras. Almost.

    From the greeting to dessert, everything was perfect. Steaks were prepared exactly as ordered. The Prime Rib was awesome and the T-Bone and RibEye were perfect. Definitely the "go to" steakhouse! You cannot go wrong here. The dining experience overall was awesome. The service experience was just as good as the food, which says a lot about the people and the business. I usually add something to ensure the review isn't biased, but I'd be lying if I said anything negative about Alexander's Steakhouse.

    I have been a fan of alexander's for quite a while due to the bar area,my favorite champagnes and the steak of course. I like the ambiance,fireplace in bar area and dining area. My dining experience tuesday exceeded my expectations. all of our servers were great but i forgot our main server's name who recommended the caviar and it was fabulous along with the crepes it came with. they resembled tiny pancakes lol. The service was exceptional and Phil enjoyed his 56th birthday dinner with me in a private setting. Thanks Alexander's hostess,bar tender and servers from the water to the bread. I enjoyed myself and will remain a loyal patron. Thanks Bella
