Alexander's on 30th Ratings and Reviews
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.
This was a wonderful dinner. Rex was our server and he was fantastic. He was knowledgeable on all items on the menu and was a lot of fun. The food was excellent! There were four of us and we each ordered a different item. All of the dishes were delicious. We definitely recommend this restaurant. I will be back often.
We are local North Parkians and Alexander's is by far our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. My wife and I highly recommend this place for all occasions. If weather permits (which is does most of the time), ask to sit on the patio, it's the perfect ambiance to set any tone. You won't be disappointed.
This is our go to spot for any special dinner. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and Kelly was amazing. We normally get Rex who's the best, but this time we got Kelly and she was great as well. Rex still came by and made the night extra special. This resturant is one if the best in San Diego. Honestly you can't go wrong ordering anything here.
Resturant was packed and very noisy on a Monday night and parking was horrible. With our Open Table reservation we were seated almost immediately in a comfortable booth. The food was acceptable but not a good value for the price point.
The service was good and I was impressed with how the wait staff assisted each other. The wine selection was good also and we picked a nice Chardonnay for a reasonable price.
All things considered, I am glad we went to Alexander's for dinner but I doubt that we will return.
I have eaten here several times before but this place is going downhill. We were given hard pizza so bad it was hard to chew. The white pizza looked like it had red sauce. Had I known before others already started eating it I would have refused it. Not much was done to remedy except for an oh well and one pizza discount. Still got mandatory gratuity for the shotty explanation. No one liked it. Not going back anymore. What a shame.
I reserved a 15-person table for a bachelorette party. The day-of the number dropped to 13 and they easily accommodated our change. The service was top-notch: quick, polite and very responsive. We had to nix an order because one girl went home sick and they kindly cut it from our table. The wine was delicious and the food servings were generous and everyone was pleased. We were probably the loudest table there and, without such a loud party, the restaurant would be great for a quiet table. They brought ice cream and cookies for the bride and were wonderful when splitting the check two ways. Thanks, Alexander's! I can't wait to go back!
Really loved this place. Have been several times. I was a little disappointed this time that they missed my private note requesting dessert be brought to the table for a bday. I didn't want to announce it in front of my friend that I was taking out, so I left the note in the special sections on Open Table. No harm, no foul. I just wish it would have been handled, they brought the check before I could even mention it. Food was amazing!!!!! always is!
Great experience and atmosphere, food is delicious and generously served, price is very reasonable. One of my favorite restaurants in SD without exception.
Tip: pay attention to the servers recommendations in specials for the day, they realky know what they are talking about...
Very busy night at Alexanders, and only two people working it all on the floor. Not enough. We weren't in a rush, but 15 minutes to even be greeted by a server - who could have at least voiced the evening's short-staffed challenge - was a bit much. After our order was taken, we were very nice with our waitress and that seemed to get us more attention, but we could see plenty of other diners being neglected. Bathrooms were also unkempt...again, I understand the short-staffed issue, but that was our experience. Comped our dessert which was nice and appreciated. Overall a good night though.
Good menu with wide range of dishes--everything from specialty pizza to fine Italian dishes. Beer and wine menu good as well. Comfortable seats and we had a table where we could talk. Parking lot behind restaurant which is handy in North Park. We will return.
Went here for dinner with several friends. They were able to accommodate a party of 13 on relationally short notice. Reasonable price too. Good selection of beer and wine and the service was good. The waiter recommended the chicken picatta which was excellent. The linguine and clams was average at best. My friend got the lasagna, which was pretty terrible. It was all cheese and literally one noodle (we counted). It was greasy too. That's the biggest reason I won't be recommending this place to anyone. There's better places in San Diego to spend your money.
Food is excellent. Inside seating was a bit noisy, loud music form bar area, large table seated nearby). I've eaten here before on the patio and it was better ambiance, unfortunately patio was closed. Will probably only return of patio seating is available - food is very good but lots of good Italian restaurants out there.
