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!!!

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.

I must say twice I have been disappointed. No one checked our table on a regular basis. We waited a long time before someone took our drink or appetizer order. We stacked our own appetizer plates and then asked someone to take them. We then requested someone to take our order. Extensive wait for everything. Not a good dining experience. Overall poor service. Really bummed! I wish this business much success but you will not have people returning if they receive poor service.

I had requested a booth as we were meeting friends who had never been before. The restaurant is very noisy and the booths are more tucked away, therefore quieter. I called the restaurant to make sure we could get a booth. When we arrived the hostess said there were no booths available and they had no record of my request. This would be alright if one had not been promised earlier that day. Not very good communication on the restaurants part. We were seated at a very noisy table in a high traffic area. Needless to say our friends were not impressed and will not go back. We have been many times, and feel that if this is how they treat their customers we probably won't be back either.
IF YOU SAY YOU'RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING THAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!

I always loved coming here for the turkey meatballs. They were replaced for a period of time, and then came back! When we went to order them from the menu we were told they were gone again and not coming back. The server said they were gone for 6 months, but the menu was not updated. They said our only option is Angus meatballs, and they were not understanding at all. The restaurant was far too cold and the toppings on my pizza not consistently added. A large disappointment.

We loved our server, the ambience, wine, walnut & gorgonzola salad, and loved the garlic bread. We had the spinach lasagna and the cannelloni and thought it was just good, but not as fantastic as the rest. We would highly recommend a visit.

Great Italian food, my Chicken Piccatta was wonderfully cooked, although it lacked a good amount of the lemon flavoring I go for in this dish. The restaurant was a little loud sitting right next to the kitchen, so ask for a table away from the work area. Great service, and bright, nice space. Looks like a fun space outside on the patio for a small brunch get together or small occasion for 10-20 people.

We were recommended to visit Alexander's and we are so glad we did! It's an amazing restaurant in what seems to be a fun & funky part of San Diego. The décor was beautiful, and the food was outstanding! We enjoyed the cheese board & mussels for appetizer, both very good. Their pizza is fantastic! And their pasta dishes are large portions and delicious. I will be recommending Alexander's to our friends, for sure!

I've been going to Alexander's for years. Food is very good and has something for everyone. I love the chicken piccata and the baked spaghetti.
My only issue is the noise. It is just too loud and then they often have the music turned up. They are usually good about lowering it some.. but I just don't understand the need for music so loud that you can't hear the person across the table.
Service is always excellent.
