Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews

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 meeti ...
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.

I love Alexander, we normally come on tuesdays for date night. Food, service, decor is amazing. Our waiter last time suggested we should try the pizza night on monday, you would seat outside and watch a movie with promotion price pizzas. So we made a reservation. Well I was informed at the door that the promotion price was only for walk in wich was strange but we said its ok. The big surprise was the movie finally started but no sound. We asked and the waiter said well we dont play the sound and actually today we dont have also music going. That was weird. We will come back for sure, but not for mude movie night.

Over all it was a really nice experience. I made a reservation but we still need to wait for 25 minutes to be seated,the hostess that day was ok.. Food was really good, ambiance was perfect .Really good server, didnt get his name..will definitely come back!

I had been wanting visit Alexander's for some time, and when I finally did, I was not disappointed. We ordered the Butter Lettuce Cobb salad and it was delicious! Even splitting it was plenty for two people. We also had the 38 Special pizza (excellent) and Walnut Gorgonzola (thick, creamy, rich sauce). We took food home, but everything served at Alexander's was remarkable. We will definitely return!

I have been to Alexander's on a few occasion. I did not know they had outdoor seating...loved it. Beautiful outdoor atmosphere... We sat by the water fountain (I guess that's what you would call it). They had a Marie-Antoinette style movie showing on the outside wall of the main building, very cute and no sound to interrupt conversation. We were there with out-of-town guest. It made a great impression.
We love Alexanders, and have gone there ...
We love Alexanders, and have gone there for special dinners for 7 years. The appetizers are good, the spicy Caesar salad is unique and interesting. Recently we went on diets and have avoided carbs, so we can't enjoy the pastas as much. We love the salads, and my favorite dinner is the filet mignon. It's always tender and the mushroom sauce is awesome. We always go back, though they have excellent food, and reasonable prices. The wines are nice, I'm not a connoisseur, but fairly discriminating, and our servers usually help successfully choose a good one for your meal, and allow tasting of by-the-glass wines.

Awful experience. One person had dietary restrictions and the wait staff was not able to cope. After telling that person a meal was unable to be modified to fit the diet (a dairy allergy) they then retracted this and made the meal. However when serving the meal, the servers grated cheese over the plate of the person who had a dairy allergy! Also, some of the food for our party came out 20 minutes prior to the rest of the food, which was inexcusable. The service was awful. We went here instead of the better Italian restaurants in South Park due to walkabout going on, but in the future we will stay at the better restaurants further south.

Met friends for an early dinner. Food was great, as always, and it was quiet enough to talk and "catch up". Our server, Rex, was wonderful......professional, personable, and always at hand -- all without intruding on our evening with friends.

Great food and atmosphere as always. Sadly, our server Dan did not seem interested in us at all. His first stop by was over 10 minutes after we sat down. It was another 10 minutes for him to take our drink order and we decided to put in for food at that time. Food was delivered by a runner and Dan never came by to check on us.

I love going to Alexandar's! My friend took me there for my birthday five years ago and I have been coming back. I have given my family gift certificates several times. They love coming too! Aside from the menu the small neighborhood feel is wonderful. Alexandar's is a great find.

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.

I've lived in the area for years and never have dined at Alexander's on 30th. The decor and ambiance is in my opinion, absolutely beautiful and elegant and chic. However after all these years never having gone, I was disappointed in that the only part I was impressed by was the ambience and not at all at the food. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing ( the chicken dinner entree ) because it was pretty underwhelming. Would love to give it another shot for a date night!

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.
