  • "amazing food, tremendous service. i love this place!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We'd been to Alexanders many times before, but never again! It took over an hour for the steaks to arrive, even though the restaurant was moderately crowded. The $89 aged ribeye chop was overcooked and tough. The filets were good however. They have raised priced considerably since we were last there. This is now a place to avoid."

  • "As good as the Cupertino location. Even the classic hamachi shots are different here and spectacular! We now have a new go to place in the city for steak."

  • "From the minute we walked in to Alexander's, we were taken care of. The staff were attentive and extremely helpful. The time they take explaining each cut of meat, the beer selection, etc is wonderful. The Wagyu steaks are outstanding and I also must recommend the corn soup"

  • "The salmon lacked flavor despite its many ingredients. I wasn't a fan of how it was cooked, as it ended up mushy and lukewarm. Wasn't super wowed by anything. And we were charged for the wrong bottle of wine—one that was double the price. They fixed the bill, but I'd expect more attention to detail from a high end steakhouse."

  • "My boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Alexander's ad they went above and beyond to make our night special! Upon checking in, 20 minutes early, they greeted us won a signed anniversary card, thanking us for sharing our special day with them. Their service was top notch and every person we interacted with was very kind, as well as very knowledgableable; they definitely know their stuff! We were treated with many delicious items, complimentarily, which was awesome. It was the first time I had Wagyu and it was so good; the meat melted in my mouth. At the end, they have us a chocolate desert and on the plate, they wrote happy anniversary. I was so impressed with their warm, kindhartedness. I definitely recommend Alexander's"

Great drinks, great appetizers, great sides, the BEST prime rib is an outstanding night. Add fast charming service - free amuse bush , dessert, a birthday card equals a life time memory!

  • "Service started out very fast. Taking last bite of snack and swooped in with next course. To their credit asked them to slow it down and from then on GREAT SERVICE. Food was good. Thought restaurant was VERY pricey-more than it needed to be. Enjoyable evening and worth the experience nevertheless."

  • "I took my boyfriend there for is birthday. I notified them that it was his birthday ahead of time and it was so great. they gave us free champagne and dessert and a birthday card. Everyone was great and super helpful "

  • "First... why are those women working the front desk? Can't even manage to smile? Not a great way to start the meal. I've been many times, and it's always the same. The table layout is very poor and the service staff often have to reach over you or ask you to place or pickup things for them. I'm not sure how they would fix this, but that table arrangement on the side is very bad. Steaks are fantastic. The sides are great. I appreciate that the chef experiments with flavor combinations (asian, etc), but it doesn't always hit the mark. A for effort, but I wish I could say the same for taste. The majority of food is very good or excellent. The wine list is quite large with some pricey wines. If you look, there are some good deals. "

  • "I have been to Alexander Steakhouse many times and have never been disappointed by the food, the wine or the service. It is my "go to" restaurant for special occasions or to treat out-of-town friends."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Came here for our anniversary. They sat us down and wish us a happy anniversary along with a card. Though that was really nice of them. Place is a little expensive but well worth it. The food was so good and had so many flavors and textures. The service was great. Everyone was really friendly. I would so come here again for another special occasion."

  • "We had a lovely meal. Restaurant was attentive to all our requests, and our guests were delighted and impressed."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "It all started by walking up a very long staircase to a dining room where we were a party of 3 sitting in a semi-private room/area with a very large table next to us with several toddlers (which were very cute and sweet). The staff were constantly buzzing in and out with "little gems" from the chef... but we felt the "sales presentation" of the steaks was almost comical. You never know who you're talking to... My family raises cattle, so I know a little more than the average foodie about the cuts. And the deserts just seemed to miss the mark... Maybe they were trying too hard? Left feeling like we weren't sophisticated enough to eat in this restaurant... would have preferred going back to Boulevard two nights in a row!"

  • "The waiter was very informative and friendly with a smile. He is a great asset to Alexanders SF. He helped us make our decisions for our meal selections and had lots of patience for the entire family.. Thanks Alexanders!!"

  • "I took 2 of my friends for a birthday dinner and when we got there we were greeted right away. The hostess handed birthday cards to both my friends and acknowledge that it was a special occasion. The service was fantastic making our dining experience amazing. Our water glass never reached below 1/4, as they refilled it right away. Also our food was delivered the person who delivered the food explained the order and the ingredients that was in it. This place is fantastic and I can't wait to celebrate my birthday there."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Service for the beginning of the meal was so great that my fiance and I commented to each other on how impressed we were. Then came the wine. We asked for a wine reco and settled on a bottle. It reeked of brettanomyces, even after being decanted and allowed to breathe for 20+ minutes. vinyl band-aid flavor. Our food arrived and we had no wine, the somm came to the table and gave us a dirty look asking what was wrong with the wine. She was generally rude and we quickly selected a wine by the glass while our $500 in steak got cold. When the server returned he made the comment that he was looking forward to drinking that bottle later with the somm. Service dropped off completely after that. Spoiled wine and a spoiled evening."

  • "I need to come up with more special occasions to go to Alexander's Steakhouse. Once again I left feeling like I've enjoyed the absolutle best dining experience in all of San Francisco. I cannot imagine hwo the food could be better, or the wait staff more attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The new mixed drinks were remarkable as well. So once again I had the perfect meal, and will look forward to my next visit."

  • "this was our first time to alexanders. great staff - great bartender - interesting drinks and incredible menu. definitely on the expensive side but the food and the staff were great and deserve a try. unfortunately - we parked at one of the two lots (outside parking and about $12). the lots are well lit and look like they have cameras. after a great dinner - we discovered a 'smash and grab' on several of the cars (including ours) in the lot. we have NEVER had a problem with this kind of activity in SF. when we told the staff at the restaurant - they informed us that we should be careful about leaving our valuables in the car! Recommend this restaurant only if you are walking or taking a taxi!!!!"

  • "We were celebrating our 14 year old's birthday (he is a bit of a foodie). I myself am very sensitive to well prepared food and service having been a chef and owner of a catering company for 33 years. Most steak houses do not put the attention to presentation that Alexander's does. The appetizers were stunning, but there was a major flaw. The King Crab was mealy and overcooked. The porterhouse was the finest I had seen in the way of presentation. The bone Marrow lay across the de-boned Tenderloin/Strip Steak. The souffles for desert were gorgeous and fluffy and were available for order at the end of the meal, I would highly recommend Alexander's to any one who appreciates fine dining with an effort of artistic interpretation."

  • "Third visit in about a year; service and steaks consistently topnotch. House Cabernet very good; tasty without excessive tannins-- just right with beefsteak. Hamachi shooters a mandatory treat. Don't order sweet onions side veg; cloying. The truffled French fries, however, are to die for. Squab is uninspired but pork chop is really fine. Get the mint sorbet dessert and be raptured. House specialty is Japanese Wagyu beef; all of it very good, as are the Omaha steaks. Alexander's now offers a dry-aged Kagoshima steak well worth trying-- even at the price I seriously thought about ordering another."

  • "Went for my fiancée birthday. He got a Japanese wagyu and I got the porterhouse. Appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks...one of the most expensive dinners I've had but it was worth it."

  • "This is an upscale restaurant with excellent food, and well, you will have to pay high price too. The japaniese steaks are way over-priced and do not live up to expectations. But everything else was very delicious. Great steaks and appertizers and the salads were seriously the best salads I ever had! They also kept bringing little taste bites here and there; those were very nice surprises and really elevated the diing experience! It was a nice treat for my husband's birthday."

  • "The Hype, the Yelp reviews, how could it be anything but fantastic? It just was. Having the priviledge of living near a world class city of restaurants, this was not one to be rated this high. Everyone has an off-nite this was that nite for the food alone. The service was everything it was rated to be...excellent. Extremely attentive wait staff. The ambiance was very much in line with the SF scene. The food was just not up to the hype. My boyfriend indulged in to quote our server, "the #1 most tender and rare cut of meat in the world", more rare than Kobe. The size cut 3oz (less than a deck of cards) for $140. It was good, but not "great". I had the porterhouse & it was overcooked. $600 tab for 2 . In this town there are better."

  • "Went here with a group of friends for the very first time for my birthday dinner. The ambiance was great and our server was very knowledgeable. They had a birthday card waiting for me and definitely catered the dinner to my birthday and even gave free dessert in the end! which was very kind and thoughtful. The steak was wonderful, we got the tomahawk, shooters for appetizers, and a few other things. The squab was a very small portion but tasteful. The food unfortunately did take a VERY long time to come out, but the staff did try to keep us occupied and eating with small treats from the kitchen which did help. Overall, great for a special occasion and steak, but perhaps snack a little before or order more appetizers."
