Took my wife for our anniversary and the atmosphere and food was terrific. When we walked in, even though it was not busy, we stood by the door waiting to be seated for at least 8-10 minutes (we almost walked out) before anyone even looked at us. After being seated, we had to finally ask for our waitress to get some drinks after about another 10 minutes. After that, all went well, our waitress was delightful and food was excellent!

My friend and I went on a Sunday evening. Our server Rex was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The ambiance was comfortable and intimate. I will be back to this North Park gem!

First time visiting Alexander's on 30th and I loved it. We sat in the back patio and it was really nice. The food was excellent and our server was really attentive. I highly recommend this place. You won't regret it.

We went to Alexander’s to celebrate a birthday on a Friday night. We were a group of seven and we were there on one of those rare nights where we have some drizzling, not major but still kind of cool and wet. The host walks us to the patio to an uncovered area and makes a joke by stating “ oh don’t worry I spoke to the rain Hods and you will be ok here outside”. We told him that one of our guests wasn’t feeling good and we preferred to be inside. He was not happy and he was rude, we went to a table for six, I asked twice about the seven spot and his answer was we are working on it and I did hear you from the first time!
That was very rude
The waitress was super nice and the food was excellent, my recommendation is to give the host some customer service training

Due to the chilly weather on the patio, the manager asked if we would like to sit inside, which made a huge difference. Thanks to the great service we had a very enjoyable night. The food here is excellent and the ambiance (especially inside) is perfect. Thank you!

My wife and I came here for our anniversary, and Alexander's became our favorite date night spot in San Diego after our experience this evening. The food was outstanding and the service had us feeling very cared for and welcomed. We sat in the outdoor seating area, and as my wife noted, it made us feel as if we were dining at some boutique restaurant in Italy (minus the one helicopter that flew over sometime during the evening). We are definitely recommending this place to our friends!

Overall terrible experience. 240$ dinner for Valentines Day was a complete disappointment. We had a 10 pm reservation because of our schedules which the restaurant posted as an option. From the minute we walked in, we were being rushed. We purchased a 60$ BOTTLE of wine and the restaurant was offering a 4 course prix fix menu for 75$ each. The server rushed us from course to course starting with the appetizer. We wanted to have the app and enjoy the wine a bit. Finally we gave in and ordered the second course. The food was “warmed” up and far from fresh. We ate only a few bites of the second course bc it was nearly inedible. The server then came and said we must order the main course bc the kitchen was closing. We said okay and when the food arrived, each of us tried a couple bites each before we decided we were finished. I ordered the filet and she ordered the stuffed chicken pasta. The chicken was over done and cold in the middle and the mid-rare steak came rare and cold. The restaurant was cleaning around us the entire time and we were paying good money. It was an available reservation like I stated. It wasn’t like we walked in unannounced. They posted this availability. Finally when we saw the waiter again, he changed from his uniform and brought us our check in his “street clothes”. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It wasn’t worth even bringing it up to the staff at this point bc clearly service wasn’t a priority to this staff. I tipped 10% to accommodate his time but not a percent more. I tried to contact the restaurant the next day with no success. Highly suggest considering other restaurants before coming here. Unreal. Never again will I return to this restaurant.

Food was excellent (asked for it to go). Server was attentive and friendly, and staff were great with accommodations. It was Valentines Day, and unfortunately the expediting of food took longer than expected.

We booked reservation for Valentine’s Day because we knew we enjoy the food and vibes here very much. The prefix menu was not bad but lacking our usual favorites (seafood pastas) but overall it was good for the occasion considering they must have such heavy prep for the day. Our 7pm sit down was great timing but somehow our food wasn’t cooked very well. Everyone else’s cheese plates had more fruits and items on it when ours came out empty and sad ( we were right next to another couple so it was obvious we got cheated ) and then later my medium rare filet came out way overcooked (again we were able to compare to the couple next to us and the filet was way more pink even I asked the server to send it back to check, still came out medium-well My bf had to switch dish with me) overall it was a good experience but the food issue definitely made it less perfect. Perhaps we were too early and the food prep was not ready? It’s a bummer.

Something to note is that the vibes was really great and the service was good too!

I would like to return here again for the regular crowd and hope the quality and flavor improve and that my Valentine’s Day experience was just a fluke.

It took forever to receive our order. We were shocked! My husband’s Vodka Bolognese noodles were tough, which means they were either over cooked or under cooked. We usually receive outstanding service and food, but not in this case. In fact one our guests ordered Scallops with Rissotto which was delivered cold and had to be returned to the kitchen to reheat.

Could have been a new waiter or just an off night but the service was very poor. They forgot that it was my wife’s birthday which was unacceptable. Too bad because the food and ambiance were pretty great.

Our group of 12 bridge, food and wine enthusiasts went back to Alexander's. We were thrilled with the refinement of simple plates such as clams, muscles, pastas preparations and the quality and attention of service.
The ambience was hot and the noise level a bit high, but it was probably from our group’s enthusiasm!

I love Alexander’s, but sitting in the main indoor dining room is noisier than the room north of it. Also, I love the bread and wine and pasta. I tried the scallops and risotto this time and it was just too rich (I had to take half of it home). I’ll stick with my favorite pink penne pasta next time.
