Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews
I first stumbled upon Alexander's when m ...
I first stumbled upon Alexander's when my partner and I were strolling late Valentines night. They were exceptional and welcomed us even though it was near the end of a busy night. The service was excellent and the food impressive. We loved it! When I was planning for my 30th birthday celebration I knew it was where I wanted to take my friends. I raved about the service and the food to them. We arrived and were seated at a lovely long table with plenty of space. Our waiter was friendly and came for our drink orders quickly, returning them right away. It wasn't until we ordered where some frustration set in. First, my friend ordered an appetizer and his entree. He reiterated the entree to clarify as the waiter repeated the wrong dish back. Our meal came, but our appetizer did not. When we asked if the mushrooms were on the way he replied, "Nope, because i forgot to put the order in. But let me put those i now and it is on me." It was a great way to handle the situation, we appreciated it. The second part, my friend who clarified the entree, was given the wrong entree. Though he made the choice not to bring it up and to eat what he was brought, it was disappointing to me as someone who so highly recommended the restaurant for someone to have this experience. Lastly, at the end of the night, we paid and we see a poster for the Tuesday weekly special, $6 spaghetti and $2 chianti. Our waiter never communicated that option to us! When I asked our waiter he said, "You're better off, you got better food anyways." No apology or recognition that yes, he should have informed us. To me this was the one thing that was exceedingly disappointing as it felt like our large party on a Tuesday night was taken advantage of by not informing us of a cheaper option. Overall, it was a lovely evening with friends and as always, the food was incredible. They need work on the service.

The thanksgiving dinner was cold. They were out of the advertised fish option as well as the apple chrisp. Pretty disappointing overall and very overpriced. The dining area is very cute and the best part of the experience.

We had a wonderful dinner bidding farewell to some friends who are moving to Honolulu. Overall, the food was very good as was the wine though a bit expensive. Lighting in the back outside is horrible and needs to be corrected. Waiter promised to bring extra candles twice but never did.

We been going to this place for quite sometime. We love the mussel with tomato and basil because the flavor is very good. As usual the main course we have the Seafood Pasta and Fillet Mignon which was cook perfectly and so tender. The Seafood Pasta is always, well prepared.

It was a packed Saturday night in North Park. We had a reservation but had to wait for 45 minutes for a table. The hostess was lovely, kept coming outside and giving us an update. She said we would be comped our first drinks. Everything was going fine once we got our table but our food was served at a different table and they started eating before realizing it so they had to put our order in again. The manager came out and apologized profusely and comped our desserts as well. Because it was such a nice warm evening and we were sitting outside and it was so beautiful and the food so good, we were not bothered by the delays. Having our wine and dessert comped also helped!

For the dinner, I have to admit, the reservations I made we're because the initial place I reserved couldn't accommodate the party size my group ended up being (we had several add-on's last minute), so I decided to try out Alexander's. The place is quaint but very romantic and classy. I almost wished I took my fiance here instead for a date rather than it being my brother's birthday dinner. Either way, the staff were extremely friendly, courteous, and relaxed. The food was amazing. If you're looking for good Italian food, I definitely would recommend the lasagna. All in all, this is definitely a spot I'll be coming back to again and again.

We celebrated our very best friends 14th wedding anniversary and Alexanders truly made it memorable. We had a romantic table in the back right in front of 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' on loop which was perfect! The food and our waiter Justin were fabulous! Thank you for a truly beautiful night!!

Everybody in the neighborhood knows that Alexanders is the best! We always think of it first thing for any special occasion. The service is always awesome, as well as the food. We usually get Rex as our server and he tops the list!

dinner for 4. Pizza was very good. My dish (the vodka pasta) was sooooo hot, unable to eat without burning your mouth. Let it sit for about 10 minutes. The meat lasagna not as good as mine. The other two dishes (mac n cheese and ??? don't remember) were good. Overall a little pricey for what you get.

This is Italian meet comfort food. Find big chunks of bacon in your steamed mussels, and really rich creamy sauces on your pasta. Been here many times, and will continue coming. Only problem, never seems to get better, is poor service, particularly if you are sitting away from main (bar) area and you sit late

I thought the ambiance and service was great! We had tickets to the theater and let them know we were on a time crunch. The service was very accommodating, and entrees came out quickly. I did not love my dish, the coastal risotto, but the other food at the table looked good. I would definitely go back and just order something else. The wine selection was good, and not too expensive. Overall, a nice experience and am excited to try it again for dinner.

I went there for the first time with a party of 9, and the execution of the food and service was flawless. There was something on the menu for everybody to eat and drink, in fact multiple things so it made everybody's decision a little difficult which is a good thing.

First time dining here. We had an awesome corner window table. Restaurant was cozy. Their bread was to die for!!! My friend and I shared the Gorgonzola & Walnut Pasta and a pizza. The pasta was delicious and as portion size was so large, we could barely finish our pizza, so we took it home for later. I will definitely come back to try other items on the menu-especially their homemade lasagna! They also have an outside patio that looks cute.

A nice enough space, but the patio is so dark you cannot see your food. We asked for another candle, but it never came so I grabbed one from an empty table. Still to dark to see what you are eating. The food was very mediocre. Seafood in my pasta tasted frozen. For $28 the seafood in a pasta dish should be fresh. Even more disappointing considering it was the chef's special in Friday night. Service was slow and disorganized. The restaurant was busy, but not slammed. Tables near us weren't cleared for 20-30 mins. Dirty dishes and the check just sat there as wait staff passed by without a glance.
