I finally made it to Alexander's and was pleasantly surprised by their menu and outdoor seating. Definitely a great spot for a date or a nice affordable dinner. My fiancé and I sat in the patio and there was plenty of seperation (in the age of covid). Highly recommend the seafood Pasta entre and their bruschetta as a starter. Was not a fan of the scallop starter only because it was fried (or it tasted as if it was). Hoping to go back for seconds and explore the rest of their menu!

DOLLAR BEER AND PIZZA NIGHT!!!! Monday night is the best night at Alexander's. Dollar beers can't be beat. And the Theodore's Fix pizza with pineapple is the best pizza in San Diego as far as I'm concerned. So glad pizza on the patio is still an option these days.

The service and food are great. The booths are white leather and need to be thoroughly cleaned. Paint needs a refresh. Its an expensive romantic place and needs to be maintained.

Everything was fantastic. The only part that was not amazing was the bottle of wine we ordered. It was the Heitz Cab which we love, however the bottle was warm and we had to ask the server to put it on ice!

We had a great dinner at Alexanders. They are doing a great job to implement social distancing. We were out in the courtyard with to other tables of people, more than 10 feet apart. The menus were single use and the wait staff wore masks. The food was great and the ambiance wasn't too impacted by the safety measures. Would do it all again!

Alexander did everything right and then some. The food and service is just as great as it always was prior to COVID. Seating is minimal by design due to social distancing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, ambiance, and service. Alexander will do anything for his customers to make things right. Top notch and would definitely recommend.

We missed eating at one of our favorite restaurants, so were so excited for our first dine-in meal out. Unfortunately, we see the struggle is all too real for restaurants to come back after lockdown. Understand that budgets are tight, but that's no excuse for compromise on service. Restaurant was not very busy, still our table went unattended: dishes weren't cleared rapidly, had to ask for water refill, etc. Bread was day-old and pasta slightly undercooked (I ordered the seafood tortellini special). Food took a long time to be served. Will give it another try in a month or so... come on, Alexander's- you can do better!

Drinks, apps, entrees, refills, and dessert served in under an hour. Our server (Zach) was so attentive, and made us so comfortable. Anything we asked for was provided immediately and when we were done with our meal we weren’t rushed in any way. We were able to just sit and enjoy our anniversary date. Will definitely return.

We had an amazing date night. Daniel went above and beyond and gave us the best customer service my boyfriend and I have had in a while. This is coming from 2 people who have been in the restaurant and bar industry. We really were impressed by the service we received tonight. Thank you for such a memorable experience. We will definitely be back and asking for Daniel!

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!

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.
