  • The best steak I've ever had

    We went during our honeymoon and were not disappointed. It ended up being the most special dinner and best steak either of us have ever had. Their attention to detail and exemplary service would be hard to be surpassed!

    Service was outstanding, food was ok. I guess I was going in with very high expectations due to our friends' recommendations. The best item we had was the uni toast. I'd go back just for that. The other stuff was just ok especially when you put into account the price. The entire staff was very helpful and pleasant. We ordered a dry aged Omaha prime t-bone that was not very good. We mentioned it to our waiter, I think his name was Jeffrey, he took it back without hesitation and gave us something else. Our waiter and the rest of the staff that Friday night provided us with some of the best service we had. I just wish the food was as good as the service.

    Came here this week with my husband the night we got married! Instantly met with friendly staff and a very sweet and knowledgeable server. The food was outstanding, everything we had was widely over my expectations. Being that this was our wedding meal, we didn't worry too much on prices, but, yes....this is an expensive meal. As much as I want to eat here every day, well have to reserve it for anniversaries. Wonderful restaurant with great service and food!! Hope to be back many times.

    I had heard good things about Alexander's and decide to take a long term business associate for dinner. He ordered the 20 oz. Prime Rib. It was 2" thick and served medium rare as ordered. He was very satisfied. I ordered the T-bone and I was very disappointed. The meat had an odd taste and there was a great deal of fat and the meat was not tender. The filet part of the T-bone was no where to be found. The side dishes were very good, but very small portions. Wines by the glass were limited. At these prices everything should be perfection. My steak was off the mark. I won't be back.

    If you want to see how expensive it is possible to make a steak dinner this modern chic spot is a must. Everything over seasoned in an attempt to make it trendy in an Asian fusion way and lots of minute treats- compliments of the chef, of course. So it's Mortons meets Ozumi meets Mina pricing. Service was very willing but tried to hard to sell the package, I was exhausted just listening to the menu run down and needed oxygen once I worked out the pricing.

    Alexander's does NOT disappoint! This was our 3rd time dining there, and we invited a couple who had never been. The entire experience was delightful. The service is un-matched. The taste's that the chef's send to the table are such a treat. The Hamachi Shots are truly a party in your mouth. The stone fruit dessert was a perfect end. Great drinks, great beginnings, great meats, great desserts, great service.

    A very nice looking and well laid out restaurant, our waitress was excellent. She totally had the menu down. very professional. While the chilled corn soup was fantastic, it was the star of the evening. We loved it. However, the $70. Rib-Eye steak was a complete disappointment. I've had much better for much less. I had so hoped for much better. The best parts of the whole evening were the waitress and the chilled corn soup. So sad.

    Visiting San Francisco and Alexander's was highly rated by several websites. Pros: Prompt, caring, and attentive service. Dining experience was excellent overall and would come back when in the area. Steaks were perfectly prepared and presented . Loved the attention to detail by all of the servers. Cons: No chefs specialties mentioned, although could be due to Sunday night. No valet parking, wine list seemed overpriced for selection, given proximity to world famous vineyards, cork fee was very high.

    From being seated to receiving the check, the service is truly something to see. I appreciate when I ask a waiter for his/her recommendations and they actually provide an in depth suggestion. From where we were seated we could see into the kitchen and saw the inner operations of the managers and wait staff. Easily the most professional operation I've witnessed. The manager gathered the staff every time they prepared to take food to a table and made sure they moved in-step, and everyone received their food at exactly the same time. Table service is attentive but by no means overbearing. My wife and I both had steak. She had the filet mignon and I had the T-bone. Both were delicious and very tender. Also, the fries are fantastic.

    The food was great, the service was great, the drinks were undersized and way over priced. Everything was pretty much excellent except for the price. I don't think the price measured up to everything else and I think you're just paying for restaurant close to the AT&T Park.

    I went over the weekend with my bf to celebrate our anniversary. I loved the idea of receiving a card and champagne to help us celebrate! That was a definite plus. I just thought some of the servers were a little robotic. The hostess who led us to our table sounded as if she gave her speech a thousand times and had no emotions. But other than that, the food was good. I tried a wagyu from Austrailia. I ordered 6oz. bringing the total of my steak to $180 which was pretty outrageous. I think for that price, I expected it to be the best steak I ever had. That wasn't the case. My bfs filet was really good tho. Then dessert, the complimentary cotton candy was fun and yummy! Overall it was an experience.

    We celebrated a birthday here. The staff was great, and made the birthday girl feel special. The food was very good, although the prime rib wasn't as flavorful as one would expect. It was however cooked perfectly, and very tender. This is not a cheap date. The bill with the tip came to almost $400. There were four of us, we all split the entrees, and there was only one glas of wine (mine),

    The service here was exceptional. You really feel like the waiters and servers and giving you special attention, in giving time to explain the menu, wine list and the dishes when delivered to your table. There is no mistaking that this is an expensive night out. We spent $170 a head, but we got what we paid for. The starters were exceptional, I recommend the rabbit! Steaks were cooked to perfection, and we found one side between two was enough. The deserts were a slight let down - found them very dense and filling after very meat-heavy first and second courses. However, the steaks and the service are the stars here. It's definitely a 'special occasion' restaurant unless you have a generous expense allowance!

    What a great find...came here for a business dinner this past week on a recommendation and sure glad we did! The first thing I would shout out is the very friendly staff here. I was running late for our reservation and called and spoke to the front desk people and they couldn't have been more polite and held our table for us and based off of how busy they where could have easily given it away. First course a Caesar salad with a pouched egg on top with bacon and washed down with a seasonal IPA this salad was to die for! Skip right to the meat I got the large Filet medium rare and this steak was so delicious you could have cut it with a fork....I indulged with a side of mushrooms that were equally as tasty. I wanted to lick the plate clean...

    I went here for my Boyfriends 25th Birthday. The accommodating staff worked with me, via email & phone, for two weeks while making my reservation (I kept changing the # of attendees.) Let that set the precedent for the excellent service we received upon arrival. The ambiance is beautiful, the staff was impeccable, and the food was absolutely delicious! They're very aware of those who might have food allergies, so the work around that with the utmost care. Attentive staff and very helpful in navigating the menu. Steaks (I got the Filet) were the BEST I've ever had. We go to a steakhouse in SF every year for our birthdays (His in August, Mine in November...so we've been to A LOT) and Alexanders was the most memorable. HIGHLY recommended!

The Hamachi Shot was different, but very good, we had one each, had to have another. Salads were small, but turned out to be the right size and very tasty (Heirloom Tomato, Little Gem and Romaine). My dining companion had the 14 oz. Prime Rib which was very tender, very tasty, and prepared to her liking. I had the HYOGO KOBE CITY WAGYU $132.00 for 3 oz, I had a 6 oz. cut, medium rare take you to heaven experience.

    Trendy modern decor, specializes in steaks with Japanese fusion to its menu. were seated at the bar to wait for our table but bartender is not attentive and we waited over 15 minutes not being served, instead he served a group of 6 who came after us. We didnt get our drinks till later at the table. Had the prime rib, excellent, melted like butter, sides and appetizers were very small for the price. I think that waitstaff and servers were overly dressed, creating a stuffy and pretentious atmosphere. There were different servers that presented each entree and i thought that was kinda uncomfortable - one would hv been enough.
