    Service was great and the server was well knowledge. I recommend the Hamachi Shooters. I would come back just for that. Only thing I'm disappointed is I think this place is worth 1000 pts, instead of 100 pts from open table.

  • Best Service and Prime Rib EVER!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/21/2014
    My wife and I were fortunate enough to get reservations (although early) on the night we arrived in SF. The ambiance was romantic and the service was impeccable. Yahir, our main server, was knowledgeable, great personality and very charming. Ask for him! The menu had so many delightful entrees - my salad (a take off of a Caesar's) called a little gem and romaine was outstanding. The Hamachi Shots were unique and delicious. The 20 oz. medium rare prime rib was cooked to perfection and literally could be cut with a fork. The cocktails and the Alexander "House" cab were wonderful. We will not visit SF without reservations at Alexander's.

    I took my Fiancé here for dinner and everyone went to the extreme to make it a special night. From a welcome glass of champagne to a free desert soufflé from the chef to another little birthday cake. The food and service was outstanding. The prime rib is the best we've found anywhere! Alexanders is a true 5-star restaurant.

    Great atmosphere and vive, modern yet classic feel, we sat at mezzanie level do had a birds eye view. Staff were attentive, professional and knowledgeable. Extensive range of Wagyu from US, Australia and in particular Japan. We decided on a Wagyu journey and tried 3 different Wagyu Ribeye cut. Sticky Toffee soufflé was excellent probably the best soufflé I have tried. Overall excellent experience needs to be a special occassion unless you have a big bank roll.

    Had a fantastic dinner there with my siblings and children. The prices are expensive but the prime rib and the tomahawk were excellent! The rib eye, which my brother ordered, didn't hold up compare to the other choices. Sides were tasty. This is the place to go for their prime rib and order the 20 oz size, you will be happy to have leftovers for the next day! Their au jus and horseradish dip was right on. Order it medium rare so it is tender. And their sticky toffee souffle is so yummy! Just on the sweet side so if you don't like your dessert too sweet then pour only part of the sauce in. Definitely a must for anyone who is carnivorous! And I have to give 5 stars for our server who was so professional and pleasant. We never felt rushed and he timed his appearances perfectly. The only downside is they are not serving their truffle fries.

    The food and sevice in the restaurant was great since we were celebrating a special occasion. It was a pleasent surprise when my husband got a small piece of cake with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate. My only negative would be the bar service. I got there 10 minutes before my husband and waited at the bar. It took a couple minutes before anyone gave me a cocktail menu and another couple minutes for someone to take my order. After ordering I didn't get my cocktail until a few minutes after being seated; at that point I thought the bartender either forgot or ignored my order. Also while at the bar a couple people who came after me got their order before my husband met me at the bar.

    The service at Alexander's Steakhouse is second to none. Several people attend to each party to replace your used silverware with new ones, cleaning the linen, delivering tasty treats from the chefs and seeing to your every need. The food is mouthwatering and delicious. Although the expensive and special cuts of meat from Japan are mind boggling to think you're paying over $100 for a piece of meat not much larger than your fork spears - it is well worth trying at least once. The cuts of meat from this special section are literally like butter in your mouth. The best steak you will ever eat in your life!

    I took my boyfriend here for dinner for his birthday. Great to find valet parking, especially since it was a giants home game that day- they even let me park while we went to another bar and watched. For dinner, we received complimentary champagne for his birthday- awesome service. They even made him a birthday card. Great steaks- there are a lot of tables but not too close together, so remains intimate. Steaks were cooked to perfection- we got a ribeye and prime rib. Didn't get an appetizer so we could enjoy as much as the 20oz steaks as we could. Waiter was so helpful in understanding everything and made the night very special. Ended the meal with a surprise birthday treat. Overall amazing experience- recommend for any special occasion.

    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.

    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.

    If you are feeling carnivores and your pocket is deep then this is the place to go. The best meat selection including a wide variety of Kobe A5 which is the best steak you will ever have. Great ambiance, great service and wonderful full bar. In addition to all the carnivores selections there are options for the non meat eater and a large selection of sides. The best steakhouse in SF.
