    Had the Tasting menu, such lovely tastes and the wine pairing really accentuated the flavors of each course. The staff was very engaging but not overly so, we really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary there.

    We’ve been going to Alexanders over 20 yrs starting from the original restaurant in Cupertino. The SF location was a welcome addition and we went to both locations for several years. Last Sep 14, we had a family dinner in the SF location as a send off to our son who was going away for college. From the start, our hamachi shots took over 30 minutes (we ordered 20 pcs) and were dry. We asked for additional ponzu sauce, which took over 10 mins to be brought over. It took 40 mins to get the rest of our appetizers and another 40+ mins to serve us A5 japanese wagyu beef (which is what we order exclusively at Alexanders). When it finally came, the Wagyu was cold. These, plus My sons already commenting about the slow service put me on watch. We decided to order another round of wagyu at 9:30pm when they said the kitchen was closed. This is when I spoke to our waiter and the general manager, David Murphy, about our experience. First, 35-45 mins between apps and entrees is far too slow, and, at the minimum, fine dining restaurants ask patrons if there’s anything else they would like from the kitchen before they close. Not only was their service poor, they just closed the kitchen and left us hanging. David Murphy is also their sommelier and I had a chat with him earlier about wines as my favorites were not in their wine list anymore. We focused on Brunellos and Barolos and he suggested bottles priced above $350 without giving me options. I ordered 2 bottles of Cannubi barolo at about $200 each. I had to figure this out by myself which was fine. I just thought being the ‘somm’ and general manager, he did a poor job of helping me with the wines and maimtaining the service quality. To put into perspective, my bill that night was $1,605.00. This is typical for us but the bad experience made this poor value. I have to say it was the worst $1,605 i ever spent, given the special night I wanted it to be for us. At this point, I don’t think we will return there.

    We had a dual birthday celebration and ordered the Chefs Special for everyone with the pairings. We enjoyed every dish and had great service. We mixed the steaks so we could have variety. We were seated upstairs and the band was great. It was a bit loud because the sound echos upward.

    Surprised my wife and spent our 45th wedding anniversary here at Alexander. This place was awesome and the service was top notch. Everyone was so attentive and made our special day much more special. The food was the best that we’ve had and the dining experience was by far the best. This is definitely unforgettable. From the hostesses, mixologist, food servers, somm , and everyone that works there make Alexander 10 stars for us. Thank you for the well wishes from all of you! Thanks You!

    The food was so spectacular and tastefully done. Would highly recommend getting a couple starters and sides to share - they all taste so good and you'll want to try them all. The ambience and service from the staff was also top notch and luxurious. Would highly recommend for any sort of celebration/birthday/anniversary dinner!

    Ruben our server was great and the Steaks were cooked to perfection. The Tomato plate was a work of art but I am not sure if there was any tomatoes on it It was a fun experience and if you are looking for a restaurant to go to on a regular basis as an incentive to lose weight then this place is your restaurant of choice. The prices and portions, with the exceptions of the steak sizes, will be a strong deterrent to watch what you spend. Great place if you want to wine and dine a prospective client but for an everyday date or evening out this is not your go to restaurant.

    Heather and the rest of the staff provided excellent service. Heather was personable and was always smiling; she wanted to make sure we were having a great time. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and provided some great recommendations. We wanted to try a little of everything on the menu so we tried the Chef’s Tasting Menu and it did not disappoint. The presentation, portions, and taste provided for a great experience. Next time we are in SF we will definitely go back and visit Heather.

    Service bordering on obsequious. Needs a rethink. Food was good. Steak cooked perfectly. Amuse bouche inedible. Appetizer (tomato) microscopic and not very interesting though I think that was the aim. Great wine list. Ambiance ok. Noise level low.

    Wow! We’re so grateful for the gentleman in the front desk last night for offering us the parking in front of the restaurant.He saw us looking for a parking spot and understands that finding one is difficult as Giants game is going on. Our food and service from Hogins (pardon if we misspelled the name) was Superb! The Miyazaki Ozaki A5 Wagyu Steak and was 😋 It was the particular to details and good presence of mine from the front desk that made us love this place. We had no doubt of their food quality as we’ve been to their other restaurants before but last night it was their customer service that got us to love their resto even more

    There were a good ten reasons to give this place a scathing review but the people and food were outstanding so we walked out with very positive feelings. However there were negatives with by far the worst being that the women's bathroom required them needing to leave a plunger by the toilet which was necessary for people to use. Not good!!!!

    Alexander’s Steakhouse is a restaurant for special occasions. We enjoyed attentive service from our personable waiter, Ruben, and from the assistant waitstaff and sommelier. The SOMA branch of Alexander’s offers an a la carte menu, with an entire section devoted to Wagyu steaks. They also offer two tasting menu options, one called “Chef’s Tasting” and the other, “Chef’s Hitachi”. The Chef’s Tasting menu we chose consisted of seven courses with small, but artfully prepared dishes. Our Chef’s Tasting menu courses included a scallion pancake; Kanpachi, a sashimi prepared with cauliflower and watermelon relish; English peas with Wagyu Canadian bacon; abalone with a creamy clam chowder base; Wagyu Tataki; filet mignon, which is upgradable at additional cost either to a ribeye steak or to a top-notch Wagyu cut; and, for dessert, a toffee pudding with olive oil ice cream. In addition to our Chef’s Tasting menu plates, the staff served several complimentary bonus dishes. Upon arrival, the receptionist offered me a refreshing glass of juice consisting of a mixture of tropical fruits. When we mentioned one of our guests was having a special birthday, they brought out a glass of sparkling white wine for each of us to toast our guest. The waiters preceded the tasting menu with an amuse bouche from the chef. Before dessert, we were served a refreshing sorbet, followed by a small cake with candle for our birthday guest . After dessert, the waitstaff presented us with a plate of homemade confections. And, as we were about to leave, the staff gave each of us a gift bag with several treats from Alexander’s kitchen, including home-baked madeleines. From Alexander’s extensive wine list, one of the wine enthusiasts in our group selected a 2009 Rivale Rosso Toscana that was a sublime accompaniment to several beef dishes in the tasting menu.
