Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews

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.

This was my first time to Alexander's and I thought it was great! The food was especially delicious. The only negative point I have to make is that the servers, although nice, were a little sloppily dressed, and I even noticed dirty wrinkled shirts on some of the servers.

Party of 5 - each ordered different entrees...most all impressed. The special item that caused the most happiness was the tiramisu! One of my guests had never had it and exploded with glee after his first bite! He said he had never tasted anything so delicious. I agree.
I ordered the cannelloni, but no trace of beef or spinach. It was just pasta laden with cheese, heavy cheese that was hard to swallow. Not sure what happened here. Took away one star for this mishap.
Server was awesome! Loved the look and ambiance of this place. Love the location in North Park.
Will dine here again.

Such a cute neighborhood restaurant! I highly recommend it for any occasion. Their patio is perfect for a date night or celebration. Food is amazing, along with their service. No need to hesitate, just book and enjoy! Cheers!

I cannot believe I have robbed myself for years by not coming here earlier!!! Alexander's is awesome! Every bite of food I had, mine, my husbands and sisters was exquisite!!! Don't go another day without coming here. You will really love it. The staff was also absolutely wonderful, our server was superb!!

This was my first time dining here. I've heard great things about Alexander's and they were right. The service is friendly and efficient. My friend and I both ordered pasta and shared the garlic bread and brie as a starter. The pasta dishes were freshly made with great ingredients. They have a decent wine list.
I will recommend this neighborhood gem to my friends and plan on returning in the future. I did, however, find the prices a bit high. I would not consider it to be everyday dining prices.

The server was helpful but not attentive as he should have been . Very slow.
The food also took awhile but that could have been the serves fault. The meal took much longer than it should have.
Not impressed with the wine list, needs better selection. I would do away with most of the choices and start over.

A friend took me to Alexanders prior to going to the theater. I was so impressed with the quality of the food that I took some friends who are fine diners. They were equally impressed, and we all agreed that our meal was probably one of the best we have EVER had!!! The waiters are attentive, and very knowledgeable about the wine selections as well as menu. My friends and I always order appetizers and several entrees which we share family style (the restaurant is not set up for that, but they gladly accommodate us). Both times our choices have included the sea food special.... don't hesitate to give their fish of the day a try... you won't be disappointed! And did I mention the incredible Rustic Garlic Bread that is served? Incredible!!! My new favorite restaurant!!!

My experience here was wonderful and my boyfriend and I enjoyed a fantastic meal by the window per our OpenTable reservation request. I would have liked to enjoy a little more recognition for my birthday (as I put in my reservation notes) but the food and my wine made up for it! I will definitely come back here the next time I'm in San Diego :)

The food was delicious! It took a bit of time for the food to arrive, but it was well worth the wait. You can tell the food was freshly prepared. The twice baked feta with pesto is a must to try with the house garlic bread.

I would actually give it 6 stars. Waiters....the best. Food, even better. Be it sitting at the bar or table outside in the back, super restaurant. We have eaten there twice now, and it has not become 'our' place to go to.

Fist there's barely any parking went around the place 3 times before I found parking. When we went inside its really nice and fancy, very romantic. We ordered champagne and a Cesar's salad and a spicy pizza that was very good. When we were done we waited a while to get our receipt after we had already asked for it the waiter came back and asked if we had received it and we were still waiting for it.

While the dinner was amazing service was amazing the chef did add goat cheese to my order that I specifically asked to be removed. I tried to deal with it and then could no longer stand the goat like taste. Upon receiving the new order my fish was butchered thrown on a plate and served to me as if I were the one that made the mistake. I did not let this spoil my time.

We were a group of six dining early. Noise level increases dramatically when the restaurant fills, so recommend early dining(or maybe outside) if you want to speak to each other at a normal level
Food was very good-expected at the price point. BUT, our bread was moldy, very obvious once you realized it was not some special seasoning. When brought to the attn of the waiter, he nonchalantly took the basket away without comment. I expected more. Also, little attention paid to our wine glasses. Our bottles of white wine were placed in the middle of the table(no effort to keep them chilled).

I had the sea bass, the fish special of the day, without the sauce. Mediocre fish--a bit fishy and overcooked.
Our waiter was excellent--helpful and friendly, but didn't hover and let us talk.
Noise level was too high for good conversation.

We enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. He drew us a map to the best pizza place in Venice, Italy. We will let you know how that works out after our visit.
Thank you. We highly recommend Alexander's on 30th.
