Impecable service.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMYahoooooo to the Buckaroo lunchGreat value, great choices, good food and service. Everything was great.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a special night outThis is the place to go to celebrate a special occasion. Fancy and elegant but not pretentious or uncomfortable. Prices very reasonable and not outrageous. Varied menu and so far we have never been disappointed6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak -- great serviceAfter chancing on Alfred's we gave it a try and were more than impressed. The service was great and efficient and not over the top -- friendly and helpful. Oysters and shrimp nice way to start and then a fillet that was cooked to perfection. It was also the right size and we couldn't envisage the 30 ounce steak -- almost enough for a village. Booth made conversation at normal levels and we will certainly be back!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was outstanding.Food and service was outstanding. Great value. We had a lovely evening and will be back again!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSan Francisco VacationEvery time my wife and I come San Francisco we go to Alfred's and have great time and meal. They have a great wine list, steaks and more. The service is the best not too fast or slow, just right. It's an old world feel inside where you feel good dressing up. The next time we are in San Franciscowe will be back!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Evening With FriendsAlfred's can always be depended upon to deliver with friendly & attentive service.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent classic steak houseRelaxed and comfortable. Our small group celebrating birthdays found the thick steaks and rack of lamb (2!) perfectly done and servings generous. Delicious and very tender osso bucco on homemade gnocchi. Pasta in homemade ravioli had was pleasantly al dente and the sauce well rounded. Beautiful steamed vegetables were straight forward and just right. Spinach in both the creamed spinach and ravioli tasted fresh and had a slight crunch. Wedge salad with bacon and blue cheese dressing was classic. Do order salad dressings on the side as the dressed Caesar salad was over dressed. Those of us who did enjoyed our salads very much.
Service was pleasant and efficient. Us foodies had a very nice time and would return and order more sides.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak HouseI think this is the best steak house in the City. Great food. Staff is pleasant and attentive. If you are a meat lover then the porterhouse is for you. I was out of town for 10 days and booked Alfreds before I can back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience...Food was great, along with the ambience... I will definitely be dining here again..

The steaks are aged and flavors melts in your mouth.All things that go on agreat steak house menu.cant wait to go back5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA trip down Memory LaneThis was our third visit to Alfred's during the past two decades. It is San Francisco staple with beautiful artwork and Chicago Steakhouse ambience. The aged, Chicago grain-fed Beef is excellent. The appetizers are classic and delicious. We enjoyed a lovely evening with great service, outstanding food, and delicious wine in a gorgeous, iconic restaurant5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak lovers' choice...One of our very favs in SFO...had the Osso buco for a change...very good, but steak is better...the "perfect meal"...Tuscany T-bone, med. rare...Caesar salad, martini-shaken-dry-3 olives, crab cakes....;)...too bad they don't open on Sundays.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlfred's is a venerable steakAlfred's is a venerable steak house that has been around for 75 years. The decor is vintage. The service is very good and the host was quite engaging. Unfortunately the steak while tender and properly cooked lacked flavor and needed a sauce which shouldn't be the case for a piece of dry aged corn feed beef. I had a delicious desert of chocolate chip bread pudding. Overall a good experience but not the great one I had hoped for.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic SF Style SteakhouseI'm always looking to capture the late 1950's chic of San Francisco. Since Ernie's restaurant (in the movie Vertigo) no longer exists, my friends brought me here. Excellent choice. We sat in a booth and though the restaurant was crowded, the noise level was good for conversation among four (mature) people. My friend had the ribeye and he thought it very good. I'm vegetarian and thoroughly enjoyed ordering vegetable side orders (brilliantly yummy). Alfred's is located in an area of town that enabled us to bar hop for our 'after dinner' drinks (so fun). I like to think the name Alfred's is for Hitchcock - but, alas, the restaurant was established in 1928 (so not possible). Nice decor, energetic bar, good service, go there....5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBet ribeye everThe biggest, tastiest and most tender ribeye I ever had5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Meal to RememberEverything was fantastic from the appetizers to the desserts. Service was outstanding. The appetizers and The Cream of Mushroom Soup were very tasty. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Good choice of side dishes. Dinner was topped off with some delicious desserts. The 3-hour parking validation is nice as parking spaces are so scarce. We will definitely be returning to Alfred's and I look forward to another wonderful dining experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall - a good steak placeVery good meal. Only real 'complaint' would be that there idea of med rare is different than mine; the steak I have was quite rare. Also, half the desserts we had as options under the full 'meal deal' were unavailable because, according to the waiter, someone had left the freezer open and all the ice cream had melted. Waiter didn't seem too concerned and offered no alternatives or even an apology. Overall though, it was a good dining experience. The deal they offer for appetizer, main course and dessert is a good value.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome SteakI had an wedding anniversary party of 12 at Alfred's. It was PERFECT! All my friends raved about the cocktails and the food. It was worth the 50 mile drive. We are all talking about meeting out there again soon.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgood eatExcellent, the table very spacious, very good reception, the Antipasti Misti wonderful. The'' Bull Market Dinner "was the best option, the Rack of Lamb sensational, need not mint., and my Ribeye as I like. The bread pudding the BEST ever.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood FindI recently went to this place with my father and brothers for a meal that I was skeptical about but was totally surprised how well the food was. I had the Filet and it was perfect. The wine selection was pretty good and the ambiance was great. The waiter was very attentive and would only interrupt us when he saw that we were finished with our meal. All in all I highly recommend Alfred's as a place to go and will send my friends and clients here.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Alfred's Steakhouse!I love Alfred's Steakhouse!

We enjoyed going there, and the service was amazing.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlfred's is for somebody lookingAlfred's is for somebody looking for a traditional SF dining experiance that likes real food, (If your looking for stacked garnished princess portions that you eat with tweazers this is not your place). This is a very special Restaurant for special occasions, big deals are closed over these meals.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have a very nice time andWe have a very nice time and look forward to returning.

WE chose the Filet Whiskey Filet Tips........ The food was delicious,.
The waiter was excellent and attentive. It's like visiting OLD San Francisco! A delightful time was had by all3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place does steak, andThis place does steak, and does it right. You get what you order, and nothing to distract you from it. Whether it's just a steak with fries, or a steak with _everything_ you can think of, you get what you asked for, and it's perfect.
And if you're looking for something nice to drink with your steak, the bar selections is extensive.
Service is sometimes a little slow, so don't eat here if you're in a hurry. But the food is so good, you shouldn't eat here if you're in a hurry anyways. :)3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been going to AlfredsI have been going to Alfreds for many years and it is always welcoming, great food and thoughtful service. Had a wonderful time.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI know I love the food here.I have been to Alfred's twice now (both for special occasions) and I must say the food has been outstanding and consistent both times. Alfred's is a good old fashioned style steak house, and if you order a martini they leave the shaker with you (You get about 3 drinks out of it NICE....)! The only reason I HAD to give this tremendous steak house 4 stars is that the service is incredibly to slow (perhaps it is part of their motif). I mean had to take the check to our server... The staff is very friendly though and knowledgeable. You can see all of the meats curing in the dry age locker (pretty cool). So if you are there take a peak in the locker, the maitre'd will even explain the entire process to you if you ask him! How cool is that?! :)3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDON'T THINK ABOUT IT, GET IN!IF YOU ARE A CARNIVORE, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. GOOD, HONEST BAR. NO NONSENSE, STRAIGHT AHEAD FRIENDLY, INFORMATIVE SERVICE. STEAK LIKE YOU DESERVE. THE BEST, DRY AGED, COOKED TO YOUR ORDER AND DELICIOUS. SIDES THAT MATCH UP AND, UNUSUALLY GREAT DESSERTS, FOR A MEAT HOUSE. IT'S THE REAL DEAL IN S.F., BEEN MANY TIMES TO THEM ALL. GO, BE HAPPY.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved that deal for 46 bucks.I loved that deal for 46 bucks. Very reasonable and excellent.
