Service and food were outstanding. We ordered wine, a salad (which they plate-split for us), and two pasta entrees which all tasted great. Definitely on the slightly pricier side, but for our special occasion, it was an excellent treat.

This was a cute and romantic restaurant set just outside of North Park. The food was very tasty and satisfying. The only negative thing I can come up with was we sat near a window and the street was a little noisy, but it got quieter as the night went on.

Cannelloni was just terrible. Great service, food was a waste of calories.
You will keep going back for more!
Alexander's on 30th is one of our favorite places to dine. My husband likes the pizza and the pasta dishes. I enjoy the Chicken Piccata with the roasted potatoes, veggies and pasta. The staff is friendly and check on us frequently to make sure all is well. I highly recommend sitting at the bar at least once so you can watch the Chefs in action. The Chefs are amazing and work well together on their delicious creations.
First of all- I love this place. The food has always been excellent, the service friendly- a great neighborhood gem. Further, and I typically only write glowing reviews. However my experience last Saturday at Alexander's was far from fantastic. I ordered the Naked Fish,which has always been wonderful. My dining companion ordered something else- which he loved. Unfortunately my Naked fish arrived really overcooked and very dry, which, of course, I didn't notice until I was eating it. Our the waitress never checked back after the entree was served, only when she delivered the check. So I simply ate my disappointing entree. When the bill arrived and our server asked how we enjoyed our meal- I told her that one entree was great but my fish was dry and disappointing- to which she replied, "I'm sorry." and walked away leaving the check. I paid the bill, but I was left with a lingering feeling of disregard- While it may be old fashioned, I find the slow death of true hospitality to be a real loss, and I just didn't expect it at Alexander's.
Service was rushed... served mains too fast and busser picked up my plate the second i was done, and well before my husband was done . They meed to slow down a bit so we can relax and enjoy Scallops were a big disappointment .. fried?! Chicken picatta was awesome as always.

7 o'clock reservation for 6 on a Friday. Sun was setting so one of our guests had sun beaming in his eyes for about 20-30 minutes as there weren't any window coverings. But that didn't hinder our experience. Excellent service, ambience and food. Loved the Tuscan seafood pasta, risotto, shrimp linguini.

Definitely my new favorite restaurant! The owner and staff were beyond accomodating for my party of 15 and several last minute changes I had to make. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was to die for!

Everything we ate was delicious with healthy portions. The service was very friendly and professional. The Host greeted us immediately instead of ignoring us until they were ready to seat us like most other local restaurants do. Top notch food service with reasonable prices. You get more then what you pay for. The Ambiance is elegant. Very good place to go for date night or close dinner with friends who would love a good meal and be able to have a wonderful conversation together.

Food was excellent as always. The salad with figs was really good, as was the lobster ravioli.
Noise vs. Great Food
It's always a toss up as to whether I'll endure the noise at this otherwise lovely restaurant in order to enjoy some of their fine food offerings. Once in awhile I just DO it, but it would be nice to be able to dine there and also visit with the friends I've chosen to share the evening with. I would go more often, if that were possible!

Subpar service for a fine dining establishment. Very disappointing.

What amazing service! The owner and staff went above expectations and truly made the evening even more special on Mother's Day. Everyone was very personable, professional and accommodating- especially with our young son. The food was absolutely divine, too. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants. Can't go wrong at Alexander's.
The service was somewhat slow.
Our waiter was not as accommodating as other restaurants with similar costs. We were not even asked if we wanted freshly grated pepper or parmesan cheese on our entrees. I would not recommend this restaurant for a date night as the noise level was pretty loud. You could not have a conversation without raising your voice level.
Loved the Food!
We were celebrating my husband's birthday and had been meaning to try out Alexander's for a while. I'm glad we did. The food was exceptional. Especially the garlic bread. It was the best garlic bread I've ever tasted. The ambiance was really nice and you could tell the place was pretty popular. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a great pasta dish and good wine selection.
Wonderful experience, great food/drinks and decor
It has been years since we've eaten at Alexander's but I remember it fondly. We love the clean white and grey color palette. The staff was courteous and very helpful with our requests (they even printed tickets to a show that we'd forgotten at home!). The bread was spectacular and the food that followed didn't disappoint. We adored the pizzas and the home-made pasta dishes. Note that they don't serve liquor, just beer and wine. We will definitely be back again soon!
visiting San Diego
We were so fortunate to find Alexander's while visiting the area! I already told my local friend to check it out. The brie & garlic bread appetizer was amazing. Between the three of us we had the beet salad, capellini pomodoro, walnut gorgonzola, and lasagne and loved every bite.
Great 6 Month Anniversary
My girlfriend and I LOVED it. Very great outside environment with candles and a movie playing. All very white and clean. It had decent prices too.
Love at 1st dine!
Over the year plus living in the neighborhood we finally decided to do a date night at Alexanders. The food was amazing and so rich in flavors that I highly recommend it for any foodie, Italian cuisine enthusiast, or anyone that likes a nice dining environment. Support local ;-)
Great for a Birthday Dinner!
My husband and I had a great dinner at Alexander's! The food was fabulous and very well priced. We were seated outside and the only complaint that I have, is that we had to ask repeatedly to have the heater turned on near our table. Other than that I would say that it's a great find! By the way...they have the best bread ever!!!
Alexander's has a very romantic urban vibe. Solid food (truly great garlic bread). The risotto was outstanding. The salads were also quite generous in proportion and well presented.
Great for a First Date or an Anniversary
I love Alexander's! I'd almost completely forgotten about it but when my wedding anniversary came around I suggested it to my hubbs and we both remembered how much we liked it. We loved our server, the ambiance and just the entire night there. It's great to take a first date and it'll become your neighborhood favorite!

We had the bruschetta with goat cheese , honey and bacon and it was delicious though the bread was a little too toasted. I had the sword fish and it was charred on the top and was completely over cooked. I sent it back and they did not charge for it. My sister had the spaghetti with turkey meatballs. The meatballs were tasteless and the sauce was nothing special. We had the cookie for dessert which was really good. The highlights were appetizer and dessert.
Alexander's the Great!!!
This place was amazing. Great service, beautiful ambiance, and the food was really good.
Could Be Better
Service was slow and we had to ask for things that need to be thought by the server anyways but overall it is a good place to eat out. Their pizzas are amazing!!
Our most recent visit to Alexander's was ...
Our most recent visit to Alexander's was for an early dinner on Easter Sunday. I was pleased at the relative ease securing a last minute reservation via Open Table. The food was, as always, top notch and I particularly enjoyed my Scallops. Unfortunately, the service severely detracted from our overall dining experience. The woman who took care of us repeatedly seemed hurried and rather impatient with our group while some were indecisive and asked for her recommendations from the menu. Her overall body language and curt tone was reflective of a server who had a full section that had all been sat at once. However, our reservation was for right when the restaurant opened and by the time we left she only had two other tables. We found ourselves watching one of the other servers and how cordial he was with his guests and lamented the fact that we wished we had been sat in his section as it would have vastly improved our overall dining experience. Unfortunately, we paid our bill and were on our way without so much as a "Thank you" or a "Goodnight" from our server on the way out as she walked right past us on our way out the door.

Worst server ever. She was rude and badly manner. The worst server I ever had.
Great wait staff
The food is delicious. The most important thing about Alexander's is the service. My friend and I wanted the beet and goat cheese salad and the black linguine seafood pasta. We weren't sure if we should each order our own dishes or split one of them. The waitress knew exactly what we should order so we would have plenty of food but not too much. There was a nice booth near us when we arrived but the people were getting ready to leave. As soon as the table at the booth was clean, the wait staff remembered they promised us the booth and moved us. You don't have to ask twice for anything-- water, bread, another glass of wine. I had FAR better service here than I had at 11 Madison Ave restaurant in NYC.
Love the caesar salad, spinach lasagna & service! I would recommend a little quieter music to go with the lovely candle light. Love this place!
Where is the lobster?
The service and food were very good except for the dinner my wife ordered. She ordered lobster raviolis and we could not find the lobster. All of the other dishes were very good.
