    Unfortunately the wait staff was not very knowledgeable about food preparation and the wine list. Both our steaks were way overcooked and the quality and taste of the meat was also very poor. On top of that, the staff only offered to replace one of our steaks. It was a very disappointing (and expensive) dinner to say the least.

    As a steak enthusiast, i was expecting better quality at those price points. Waiter was pretty pushy and rude entire time trying to get us to buy more sides and drinks when we didn’t want any and would not stop. My ribeye was decent but the glaze was way too strong and was hard to eat entire steak. My wife’s filet was similar.

    The food was good but I wasn’t blown away. I may have had high expectations considering the establishment is well known but I was expecting a tad bit more since you’re paying top dollar here.

    Great food at reasonable SF prices but a little too noisy yet service was fantastic they did not come too often so we could have a nice dinner (I don’t like when the servers come every 2 min asking if the food was good… :) )

    If wanting an American style steakhouse, this is not the place. Very unique menu with a lot of Asian influence. The wine list has a lot off choices although very expensive. Staff was fantastic.

    Dining room was freezing cold. We were all eating our winter coats and so were guests at most other tables. It was a cold winter night and they said “we know. It’s the windows”. Kind of crazy for what was a $400 / head dinner. Over priced for what it is. Wouldn’t recommend.

    Service is excellent as ever as we come here every year. However, the portions of food is getting ridiculous small and the price is higher than before…I guess we can only blame that on inflation…

    We hadn’t been to Alexander’s in a number of years, and wanted to celebrate our nephew’s SF internship at a steakhouse. We couldn’t have been more delighted. All of the dishes, not just the steaks, were superb, and the service was spot on. We’ll be returning often!

    I am a frequent fine diner. Unfortunately, this establishment came nowhere close to meeting the bar of excellence that you expect at fine dining such as this. The service was not up to par. The dry aged steak that I ordered had so much gristle that it was hard to chew. Am I picky? Yes. But when you are paying nearly 1000.00 for a meal it should be nothing less than excellent. This was closer to a chain style restaurant quality unfortunately. I will not be returning.

    A wonderful meal to celebrate a milestone birthday as a date night. It was extremely cold in the restaurant so both of us kept our coats and scarves on. That definitely needs to improve. The ambiance could have been more interesting but it was not bad. The service and food were the standouts. Excellent staff and memorable dishes. We’re happy. Just cold!

    I really wanted to like this place. This is where the old Baccar used to be. Greeter and hostess were very nice. Ruben the server was great and Albert the sommelier was very polite. Appetizers were tiny. Steaks were average, even the A5 we ordered, which was dry and tough. Very very disappointing. Desserts were meh.

    This was our second visit - it wasn't our first choice, but it was the only nice steakhouse that had tons of availability in SF, everywhere else was booked. Very noisy inside, service was very slow. First visit last year we had the tasting menu which was ok but not worth $251/person - they served a bunch of small bites and at the end served a huge steak - I think it was a ribeye which was very thin, I couldn't even eat it. total bill for 3 of us was $2K! I and I had one cocktail, the other person just had ice tea and the other person had 1 cocktail so I have no idea why it was that expensive. Our second visit I skipped the tasting menu but honestly the pricing is way too high, I mean $105 for pasta?! Now I know why they had a ton of availability. It wasn't very busy when we went but took them 45 minutes to get water and 2 cocktails to our table, the Manager David was rude and not helpful. This was our last visit.
