Special occasions were the norm for Alex's Steakhouse. Reservations are recommended. Food and ambiance is quite good. We ate there on a Saturday which also provided a live 9 piece band that played terrific music for our pleasure. Wonderful night!

Today is my birthday. Went here for dinner. We live in San Diego. Been here many times over the years. Was just here in September, plus stayed at at the Madonna Inn.
Tonight our server was awful. The busser was better.
When she came to the table to introduce herself (Roseanne), she interrupted the busser who was talking to us. My husband ordered Caesar salad, that was awful. He sent it back twice... never ate it. Caesar salad was a $1.00 up charge. Steaks were ok. I had to ask for a refill of my Diet Coke several times. At the end of the meal, she said she had something for me. She brought a piece of cake for my BD. She never asked the rest of the party if they wanted any dessert. We saw her present a desert tray to another table, but nothing to us. She brought the bill, and there was the $1.00 up charge for a salad we didn’t eat!!! We paid the whole bill. After, I went to the manager and he said he would talk to her and said they have turnover and new people.
It was not a good experience for a high-end restaurant... over $50 per person. I expect much better service.
A disappointing birthday.

A blast from the past!! Dining in the 1950’s with good food and service! If you never been here, it’s a pink palace! Where can you still get crudités before your meal. Great steak and dancing after dinner. Definitely a place to stop and enjoy.

Madonna really has the best meat on the central coast. They overcook the veggies but the baked potatoes & meat make up for it.
It’s just fun to go there

We were celebrating my wife's birthday. We both had the french fillet mignon. They were excellent!

I was entertaining relatives from out of town and wanted them to experience the Madonna inn. The place doesn't disappoint in terms of atmosphere. The food and service are subject particularly for the cost. I ordered the slider appetizer and it was terrible. The meat was so overcooked and dry. There was hardly any brie and no sauce to speak of.

Our waitress was no where to be found. Most of the time. Fortunately my guests had a great time.
