Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews

I love Alexander, we normally come on tuesdays for date night. Food, service, decor is amazing. Our waiter last time suggested we should try the pizza night on monday, you would seat outside and watch a movie with promotion price pizzas. So we made a reservation. Well I was informed at the door that the promotion price was only for walk in wich was strange but we said its ok. The big surprise was the movie finally started but no sound. We asked and the waiter said well we dont play the sound and actually today we dont have also music going. That was weird. We will come back for sure, but not for mude movie night.

Over all it was a really nice experience. I made a reservation but we still need to wait for 25 minutes to be seated,the hostess that day was ok.. Food was really good, ambiance was perfect .Really good server, didnt get his name..will definitely come back!

I had been wanting visit Alexander's for some time, and when I finally did, I was not disappointed. We ordered the Butter Lettuce Cobb salad and it was delicious! Even splitting it was plenty for two people. We also had the 38 Special pizza (excellent) and Walnut Gorgonzola (thick, creamy, rich sauce). We took food home, but everything served at Alexander's was remarkable. We will definitely return!

I have been to Alexander's on a few occasion. I did not know they had outdoor seating...loved it. Beautiful outdoor atmosphere... We sat by the water fountain (I guess that's what you would call it). They had a Marie-Antoinette style movie showing on the outside wall of the main building, very cute and no sound to interrupt conversation. We were there with out-of-town guest. It made a great impression.

We love Alexanders, and have gone there for special dinners for 7 years. The appetizers are good, the spicy Caesar salad is unique and interesting. Recently we went on diets and have avoided carbs, so we can't enjoy the pastas as much. We love the salads, and my favorite dinner is the filet mignon. It's always tender and the mushroom sauce is awesome. We always go back, though they have excellent food, and reasonable prices. The wines are nice, I'm not a connoisseur, but fairly discriminating, and our servers usually help successfully choose a good one for your meal, and allow tasting of by-the-glass wines.

Awful experience. One person had dietary restrictions and the wait staff was not able to cope. After telling that person a meal was unable to be modified to fit the diet (a dairy allergy) they then retracted this and made the meal. However when serving the meal, the servers grated cheese over the plate of the person who had a dairy allergy! Also, some of the food for our party came out 20 minutes prior to the rest of the food, which was inexcusable. The service was awful. We went here instead of the better Italian restaurants in South Park due to walkabout going on, but in the future we will stay at the better restaurants further south.

Met friends for an early dinner. Food was great, as always, and it was quiet enough to talk and "catch up". Our server, Rex, was wonderful......professional, personable, and always at hand -- all without intruding on our evening with friends.

Great food and atmosphere as always. Sadly, our server Dan did not seem interested in us at all. His first stop by was over 10 minutes after we sat down. It was another 10 minutes for him to take our drink order and we decided to put in for food at that time. Food was delivered by a runner and Dan never came by to check on us.

I love going to Alexandar's! My friend took me there for my birthday five years ago and I have been coming back. I have given my family gift certificates several times. They love coming too! Aside from the menu the small neighborhood feel is wonderful. Alexandar's is a great find.

Service and food were outstanding. We ordered wine, a salad (which they plate-split for us), and two pasta entrees which all tasted great. Definitely on the slightly pricier side, but for our special occasion, it was an excellent treat.

I've lived in the area for years and never have dined at Alexander's on 30th. The decor and ambiance is in my opinion, absolutely beautiful and elegant and chic. However after all these years never having gone, I was disappointed in that the only part I was impressed by was the ambience and not at all at the food. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing ( the chicken dinner entree ) because it was pretty underwhelming. Would love to give it another shot for a date night!

This was a cute and romantic restaurant set just outside of North Park. The food was very tasty and satisfying. The only negative thing I can come up with was we sat near a window and the street was a little noisy, but it got quieter as the night went on.
You will keep going back for more!
Alexander's on 30th is one of our favorite places to dine. My husband likes the pizza and the pasta dishes. I enjoy the Chicken Piccata with the roasted potatoes, veggies and pasta. The staff is friendly and check on us frequently to make sure all is well. I highly recommend sitting at the bar at least once so you can watch the Chefs in action. The Chefs are amazing and work well together on their delicious creations.
First of all- I love this place. The food has always been excellent, the service friendly- a great neighborhood gem. Further, and I typically only write glowing reviews. However my experience last Saturday at Alexander's was far from fantastic.
I ordered the Naked Fish,which has always been wonderful. My dining companion ordered something else- which he loved. Unfortunately my Naked fish arrived really overcooked and very dry, which, of course, I didn't notice until I was eating it. Our the waitress never checked back after the entree was served, only when she delivered the check. So I simply ate my disappointing entree.
When the bill arrived and our server asked how we enjoyed our meal- I told her that one entree was great but my fish was dry and disappointing- to which she replied, "I'm sorry." and walked away leaving the check.
I paid the bill, but I was left with a lingering feeling of disregard-
While it may be old fashioned, I find the slow death of true hospitality to be a real loss, and I just didn't expect it at Alexander's.
Service was rushed... served mains too fast and busser picked up my plate the second i was done, and well before my husband was done . They meed to slow down a bit so we can relax and enjoy
Scallops were a big disappointment .. fried?! Chicken picatta was awesome as always.

7 o'clock reservation for 6 on a Friday. Sun was setting so one of our guests had sun beaming in his eyes for about 20-30 minutes as there weren't any window coverings. But that didn't hinder our experience. Excellent service, ambience and food. Loved the Tuscan seafood pasta, risotto, shrimp linguini.

Everything we ate was delicious with healthy portions. The service was very friendly and professional. The Host greeted us immediately instead of ignoring us until they were ready to seat us like most other local restaurants do. Top notch food service with reasonable prices. You get more then what you pay for. The Ambiance is elegant. Very good place to go for date night or close dinner with friends who would love a good meal and be able to have a wonderful conversation together.
Noise vs. Great Food
It's always a toss up as to whether I'll endure the noise at this otherwise lovely restaurant in order to enjoy some of their fine food offerings. Once in awhile I just DO it, but it would be nice to be able to dine there and also visit with the friends I've chosen to share the evening with. I would go more often, if that were possible!
What amazing service! The owner and staf ...
What amazing service! The owner and staff went above expectations and truly made the evening even more special on Mother's Day. Everyone was very personable, professional and accommodating- especially with our young son. The food was absolutely divine, too. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants. Can't go wrong at Alexander's.
The service was somewhat slow.
Our waiter was not as accommodating as other restaurants with similar costs. We were not even asked if we wanted freshly grated pepper or parmesan cheese on our entrees. I would not recommend this restaurant for a date night as the noise level was pretty loud. You could not have a conversation without raising your voice level.
Loved the Food!
We were celebrating my husband's birthday and had been meaning to try out Alexander's for a while. I'm glad we did. The food was exceptional. Especially the garlic bread. It was the best garlic bread I've ever tasted. The ambiance was really nice and you could tell the place was pretty popular. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a great pasta dish and good wine selection.
Wonderful experience, great food/drinks and decor
It has been years since we've eaten at Alexander's but I remember it fondly. We love the clean white and grey color palette. The staff was courteous and very helpful with our requests (they even printed tickets to a show that we'd forgotten at home!). The bread was spectacular and the food that followed didn't disappoint. We adored the pizzas and the home-made pasta dishes. Note that they don't serve liquor, just beer and wine. We will definitely be back again soon!
visiting San Diego
We were so fortunate to find Alexander's while visiting the area! I already told my local friend to check it out. The brie & garlic bread appetizer was amazing. Between the three of us we had the beet salad, capellini pomodoro, walnut gorgonzola, and lasagne and loved every bite.
