I was invited for a business dinner with our Accounting firm at Alfred's Steakhouse, as I arrived I though that this was going to he special since the had been in business for over 70 years. The wait staff was pleasant but not too accommodating. They wanted to go things their way. The steak average at best. With all the... More

Alfred's is like a step back in time. Atmosphere, service and food were outstanding. We would have gone here again had we stayed another night.

Came here with my brother. Had a nice glass of Zinfandel with my 10oz Filet Mignon. It was cooked perfectly. The creamed spinach was outstanding. My brother had the 30oz Porterhouse. He enjoyed it very much with the side of beef ravioli's. The only disappointment was that I originally ordered the 32 ounce bone in ribeye. I was craving it... More

Very comfortable place to gather with friends and family. Had a annual gathering with my basketball brothers here and had a great time. There were fourteen of us this year. The food was good and the service was even better. There were a variety of things ordered and only one had a little glitch. He said his steak was a... More

Went here on a recommendation from our concierge. We had a big party of 13 and Alfred's handled it with ease. The place is classic in design and feels very special. The service was spot on and the menu was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the steaks - and everything were excellent. No complaints at all and definitely a... More

You have to go looking for Alfred's because it is actually in an alley next to the Hilton Financial. Although it's called Merchant Street, it is not much of a street! We went in early enough for the "49er" special. Three courses for $49. Excellent value. But there are significant taxes and charges on top of this. And wine is... More

I've been a fan of Alfred's since it was in its original location, but having moved out of town hadn't been there in a couple of years. Last week the opportunity arose, as some friends were in from the east coast, and I thought Alfred's would be a good bet. The bet definitely paid off. My wife and I arrived... More

Alfreds Steakhouse in San Francisco had one of the best steaks I have ever tasted. The meat was excellent and the taste was superb. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I took a break from mom and dad issues to sit down and have a good meal. Alfreds was spot on. There's validated parking at the Hilton so, no worries about the horrendous parking around the area. Once in there, the staff was courteous and welcoming. They sat us down right away thanks to our reservations and... More
