  • Just ok
    disappointed
    Dined on 9/28/2014
    For the price, we were expecting a lot more. Server barely checked on us. The lobster mac & cheese that everyone raves about was dry and lacked flavor. The positive was they noticed we barely touched it and took it off of our bill. I definitely appreciated that. The Ribeye steak was decent, but nothing more special than what you'd get at Chili's (sorry). The bone-in filet mignon was pretty good though (4 star). The creamed spinach was quite good. Mashed potatoes were average to above average. I had the Baked California, which was too sweet and I didn't finish it. My wife had the Eclipse, and it had an off taste to it. All in all, the food was just ok, but really disappointing considering the close to $200 price tag for two people.

    The food and service here have really gone downhill over the years but the prices have not. It took 45 minutes for us to get our appetizer and the steak was not prepared as requested. The waiter was pleasant but mostly unavailable and the kitchen was overloaded. They get away with this because there are so many ignorant techies in the area who do not know any better and think high price means a great restaurant.

    Best food I've had at a place called a steakhouse. Kobe style beef available in 3 oz increments, excellent service and artistic presentation. Not inexpensive. Seafood and veggie dishes also very good. Very good wine list and interesting cocktails. They have 13 brands of rye.

    We ordered three medium-rare prime ribs. One was more rare than the other two, but they were all outstanding. The Hamachi shots were very tasty, the steak tartar was excellent, but the French Onion soup was just good and not outstanding. All in all, a very enjoyable dinner.

    I have various food allergies and every other fine dining establishment I have gone to has made amazing meals for me and has altered for my allergies. At Alexanders I was served a plain piece of salmon with lime wedges and steamed string beans. I expect much more from a Michelin star restaurant. The fact that the chef was not creative was disappointing.

    Celebrated Mom's 90th birthday. She had a most wonderful time since she loved to do lunch and Alexander's did a great job. Starting with a nice birthday card, complementary champagne toast and a delicious meal, topped off with chocolate calligraphy on her very own dessert plate! The cotton candy was a nice touch. What a thrill it was for her on her special day and for us, as well. We want to commend Alexander's for their superb training of their staff as they made us feel so comfortable and welcomed. Special mention to Chris who waited on us with such attention to detail and friendliness. We will ask for him next time and we will return!

  • worst steaks, yet expensive
    lvfinedining
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    we have a group of 7. We all ordered different types of steaks... and unfortunately, they were all bad. The "CAB Prime" was worse than the Prime steak we get from Costco (texture, freshness), and we BBQ grill better (don't know how they can destroy a Prime steak so badly). The Aged steaks clearly weren't prime and in fact super chewy... every bite resulted in spitting out. several of us gave up. It's a shame for such expensive restaurants that pride itself to be a steakhouse can deliver 7 bad steaks, each priced above 50. the Corkage fees are out on a league of its own.... we brought 4 bottles and first 2 were $35 each... next 2 were $50 each! Will not come here again... I think it's going downhill.

    Good services . Good food . The filet mignon was super tender and juicy even though we ask for medium cook . The only thing I didn't like is the Japanese beef - the wagyu beef . It's expensive and too much fatty . It cost like $140 for 3 ounces . But over all it was a nice diner with good services . Oh a plus thing about our diner was that they keep bringing out the samples while waiting for our food and in house treat cotton candies and mini chocolate cake slide light up w/ candles for our anniversary and they also give us a nice card for our anniversary !!!

    Considering the price point, I've had better service at cheaper restaurants, so I couldn't believe this use to be a Michelin-star restaurant. Everything seemed rush, abrupt, and all the service seemed miserable to be at their job. At one point, when our food arrived for our large party, 3-4 guys came out with our food, the guys looked at each other and basically rushed to get out of there, left the slow guy to explain our food. By the way, mentioning of explaining food, they did not explain any food, until we asked, "wait what's in that?" I had way more tentative, hospitable service at other restaurants. Of course the steak was good, but the rest, I wouldn't rave about. Definitely wouldn't spend another dime here.

    For a recent dinner with six work colleagues we decided to go to Alexander's. I had been there before a year ago and must say, service has gone down a notch. The food is still amazing, but time between courses (45 minutes between salads and entrees) left a bad taste in our mouths. Our waitress said the manager would comp us something on our bill, but that never happened and we left after waiting for the manager for 20 minutes. For a $800+ table, I expect a bit higher attention from staff.

    We went here to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance is excellent, it was kind of early so it wasn't real busy (changed later on tho). The server was extremely knowledgeable about everything and very willing to explain all the fine details. Right after we sat down the server brought us 2 glasses of champagne (but I do not drink so she gladly changed it for raspberry sparkling water) to toast our anniversary. She (Kitty) then proceeded to go through the meat descriptions and fresh catch options. The food was so good it just melted in your mouth. We ordered the Hamachi Shots which were excellent. I can't say enough about this dining experience. It was over the top. Doesn't even compare to Forbes Mill which is where we went last year.

    Exceptionally pricey but you forewarned me. Very professional and knowledgeable service. Worth the price? Not sure but at least I can now say I've had Kobe steak. Unless you like fatty meat, skip it and stick to the good old American-raised beef. Cannot say much about the appearance of the restaurant. My companion and I were put in the banquet room...alone for most of the evening. But at least we got to talk without background noise.

    We have dined at this restaurant since it was opened with the original wagyu beefs with it's own menu and birth certificate of the wagyu. Our most recent dining experience was awful. Noticed the chefs have all changed. Non wagyu steaks were BLAND, tough and chewy. Yes the wagyus were still good but amount was considerably less then before. The noise level received 3 levels not because it was energetic but because it's TOO noisy to carry a conversation. Wine prices increased tremendously. NOT WORTH DINING. Los Altos Grill's steaks are consistent, cheaper, and blows this place out of the water. I was embarrassed to treat a first timer here for dinner for their birthday.

    There were 2 of us for lunch and neither was very hungry. So we decided to split the prix fix lunch. I had the steak tartare appetizer and my friend had the French Dip sandwich and we split the brownie dessert. He took home half of his sandwich and with the amuse bouche of egg drop soup and 1/2 the dessert, the small portion of the steak tartare was adequate. Everything was very good, as was the service, and we would return.

    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.

    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.
