Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews
A first class dining experience from start to finish! Friendly welcome from the staff, attentive server (Kelly), great food, it's perfect when the pasta arrives at table piping hot. Hannah asked if I needed anything and made me feel right at home. I look forward to another fine dinner at Alexander's soon. Andy A.
The reservation was for 6:30. Didn't get seated until 6:50. It was just two of us on a Monday night. It was busy because of a happy hour promotion that brought in a very casual crowd. My wife and I were celebrating her 33rd birthday and had left the kids at home with the babysitter. When you're paying for a babysitter and it's time away from the kids every moment counts and I didn't appreciate the wait. Not to be nitpicky but what's the point of having a reservation system if they don't have a table reserved for you when you arrive.
We have enjoyed meals at Alexander's with a few friends,a group of friends and just the two of us for a romantic evening and every one of them were wonderful experiences. The food is consistently good as is the service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Alexander's is one of my absolute favorite restaurants and I have never been disappointed. We sat on the outdoor patio in the back corner and it was so comfy we stayed for a good four hours. We split the cheese board with fig and the proscuitto and burrata bruschetta. I had the rustic salad with scallops which I actually get every time because their scallops are to die for. My aunt got the seafood special with shrimp and scallops which she loveddd and my boyfriend got the lasagna. We also split the creme brûlée and I wish it was double the size. Dan was our server and he was awesome. HIghly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
Alexander's is a neighborhood favorite. I have eaten there several times and it never disappoints. At the end of our meal our waiter brought us desert, stating that our meals took longer than expected and it was complimentary. We hadn't even noticed the wait. Nice touch...
1) Menu: childish and disorganized. They seems to have no real concept of food. The menu design itself was poorly thought out and badly designed. Impossible to read in the low light due to a overly delicate font. Might look beautiful in the bright light of the artist studio, but in the very low light levels of this place it was a big failure. Had to use the light on my phone to read the damn thing.
2) Service staff: Disinterested and inattentive. Felt like we were doing her a favor being there. We waited while five feet away she chit chatted with another staff member before she could be bothered to come take our order. No help with the menu and the specials were described as to make them unappetizing. Showed zero interest in our experience.
3) Most comical moment: Watching the waitress reach across a patron's place setting while they were eating to deposit the bill on the table. Seems she could not be bothered to take threes steps to the other side of the table.
4) Food: Just plain bad food. Lasagna was so hot that I had to wait five minutes to consume IT. Consume was about ALL this lasagna deserved--sauce tasted of sugar and so much cheese that you could barely tell it was spinach lasagna--frozen Stouffers' lasagna is better. My wife's pasta was flavorless and appeared to have been unceremoniously mounded up and deposited in the bowl. I mean how do you screw-up Capellini Pomodoro? Well they managed too with chunks of tomatoes so large and under cooked that they did not release their flavor to adhere to the Capellini.
Made a reservation based on recommendations from friends.
Must have been a busy evening because restaurant was noisy and crowded. We were seated in patio area with low lighting and had to use our mobile devices to light up the menus.
Food was good but not outstanding. The worst part of the evening was the lack of parking!
