Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews
It was my birthday and I was really craving The White Room pizza, so I reluctantly made a reservation here. We used to dine here probably every other month, but the last time we were here (wow it was March 2016- I looked through my OT history) with our friends that just moved to Alexander's neighborhood, it was a terrible experience. They said they would not return there. So, gosh, 1.5 yrs later, we did, and SO glad we did. We were seated in "Justin's" section and he greeted us almost immediately after we sat down. Just to say hi and see what type of water we'd like - not jumping down our throats to order drinks. Then a large party was leaving while he was giving us our water. The gentleman thanked Justin and turned to us and said "he's fantastic!". Ok...let us see for ourselves....I have to report that he exceeded our expectations. He checked in often, but was not intrusive. Honestly wanted to make sure we enjoyed our drinks, then our appetizers, and then our entrees. Of course TWR pizza did not disappoint. To top it off, he brought me a beautiful piece of tiramisu with a candle. He still would have received 5* even if cake was forgotten. He was that good. Needless to say, Alexander's is back on our dinner circuit...thanks to Justin. We'll ask for him when I make the next OT reservation.
We dine at Sammy frequently. We ordered the wonderful pasta they serve, first rate. So, I decided to do pasta and a salad and split it with my girlfriend. No problem. The problem happened when I expected my passport card to be used. The waiter, kelly, said can't use your passport tonight, you didn't did not get two entrees you got one entree and one appetizer. It was awkward, she said u can do this tonight, but make sure they are two entrees. it was a bit awkward
We went with another couple for an adult night out. I had been wanting to try Alexander's for awhile. It did not disappoint. The wine was delicious. For an appetizer we had the baked Brie with roasted garlic. Wow! The garlic bread is amazing. We had a nice house salad and split it. Perfect size for splitting. We shared a pizza and the capellini with our friends. Very good and perfect amount of food. The cheese board sounded amazing, so I will definitely be back to try it.
The host was kind of rude in that they had many open tables but wouldnt seat us.
Luckily, we had open table were we booked a table and he begrudgingly seated us right away.
The food was great but it was just weird that the host didn't want to fill open tables, really akward and there are lots of other great resteraunts in San Diego.
My husband and I visited Alexander's, as a last outing dinner date before an 8 month deployment.
When I first moved to San Diego, four years ago, I'd noticed the restaurant — and had wanted to dine there ever since, though hadn't, until last Saturday.
Fast forward to being greeted and waiting for a table in the corner, which showcased torn leather chairs by a window with chipped paint on either sides of the walls. After being seated I noticed that there were many other seating options, but perhaps we were sat there to fill a space, between two other occupied tables.
Our waitress (or waiters, because she forgot about our table, twice and we found ourselves being serviced by other people) was seemingly friendly and vivacious. However, she filled our waters only once (water was the only thing we'd ordered due to having wine and dessert at home) and apologized for forgetting to bring bread to the table, at the end of the meal. She did, however, put the bread in a take-out bag for us to take home.
The chicken piccata was quite possibly the worst version of a chicken piccata I've ever tasted and paid for... The only palatable item on the plate were the noodles drowning in white wine sauce.
While Alexander's is officially off of my bucketlist, it is also officially off of a place I'd like to dine at, again.
This is our second time eating here. On both occasions the food was outstanding. The Tuscan Seafood Pasta was delicious. The gluten free pizza was also very good. We are already planning to return next week. Love the atmosphere, both inside and out. The service was very good..time will tell wether it is one of those restaurants that never disappoints but so far so excellent.,
Our mom is moving to the midwest, so family from LA came down and off the Alexanders's we went for a family celebration dinner. All the pasta dishes were great, but those who had the fish said it was slightly overcooked. At the beginning of the dinner the sound level was slightly loud, but ok. Midway through dinner the place got A LOT louder, where it was difficult to hear the person sitting across from you. If htere is one change to make I'd say Alexander's should invest in some better sound proofing. The service is always great. Our server, Daniel, was awesome!
Terrifically noisy dining room and bar with no views except dozens of cars passing in a 4-way intersection a few feet from some of the diners' tables. If you want to communicate with people at your table or booth, be prepared to practically yell at each other. My entree was excellent, risotto with scallops, and I would get it for take-out to treat myself some time. My dinner companions thought they had mediocre dinners and they had no interest in returning--especially for the prices. One other time I sat at the bar here and had a good pizza while I complained about the incredible noise level and bus and traffic fumes. I don't think this place works. It's unfortunate. I do not plan to go back unless it is for take-out of pizza and maybe the risotto again.
