This was my second visit to Alexander's - the first visit was this past February and Rob and I decided to visit again since it was fabulous the first time. When we made the reservation we requested the server we had last time, "Mr. Peters" -- a.k.a., Blake -- since he was so professional and fun... read more

I see some disappointed people which is really different from my experience. I was there on a Sunday evening. Ambiance: very nice, dimmed lights, not too loud, I like the open kitchen, there was a bit of a draft from the AC, but nothing we bothered mentioning. Service: absolutely perfect. The staff was knowledgeable about the food and wine. Friendly... More

We came with high expectations and were totally frustrated. Even though the service is great the food was very disappointing, my husband's prime rib was cold and when we sent it to the kitchen it only came back after everybody was done. My daughter's side of French fries only came after we ask for it again and it she was... More

Amazing food, impeccable service. The food is expensive but well worth it. Wine list is impressive...they have wines from everywhere.

The service is beyond compare and that is why I gave it a three rating. The menu is very different. We started with the Mangalitsa Pork Terrine, I would not recommend it. It was a raw bacon blended into a paste. My boyfriend had the bone in filet, no better than anywhere else. I had the Wagyu Lone Mountain Ranch... More

$700 for 4 people should leave you with "WOW" used in referring to more than just the bill. Nice but somewhat sterile atmosphere with average food seems to be the vibe here. Fancy sounding yet bland appetizers. The steak was cooked to the wrong temperature and possibly the chewiest cut of New York strip ever. You won't be impressing your... More

I have been to Alexander Steakhouse several times but this last one was hands down the best meal and the best steak I have had in a while. We had the waigyu sampler and OMG I went to heaven and back...it was delicious and so tender the meat melts in your mouth. The appetizers are delicious as well, the fries... More

Kidding of course. I like eating good quality meat and this place served the very best. I ordered one of the top pieces of US meat and just to make sure, a very nice piece of Kobe beef. The US steak was brilliant and well cooked. Just perfectly crisp and moist and tasty. The Kobe was off the scale. I... More

I eat a steak once a year so it has to be good when I do -- and this was. Great experience -- not cheap by my Midwest standards... But well worth it. Lots of little samples which were generally amazing (the duck fat custard not so much -- but three different breads in small portions, and the side of... More

This is one of those very good independent US steakhouses. A little out of the way but when you get there you are in for a very good experience. Couldn't fault it from start to finish.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
