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

I'm remiss in not commenting years ago on my wife's and my favorite classic San Francisco restaurant. We discovered Alfred's in the 1960s when it was on Broadway and followed it to the Financial District next to the Hilton on Kearny across from the Chinatown Park over the Portsmouth Square Garage. When I want to remind myself of why I... More

Steaks aged to perfection, we had the filet mignon and the filet tips in mushroom sauce, there aren't many steakhouses who still give you a side vegetable and potato or pasta on the plate. The coddled egg Ceaser salad was all I expected and wanted in a true Ceaser. The Filet and Filet Tips were served with speed and perfectly... More

Nice location, nice atmosphere and nice service but....The food didn't impress me. Coming from Italy, we had such high expextations about American steackhouses. I don't want to say I didn't like the food, but I expected something better. We asked for a medium rare steack, but it was definitely too cooked. The flavor was good, and good were veggies and...

If you want a traditional steakhouse experience with 5-star service, great steaks, seafood, and pasta and great wines and cocktails, this is your place. A great place for special occasions that's been around for many years. Red Wine and cocktails are very good and I'd try the oysters.

You can't beat an old classic...that is unless it comes with blue filet mignon cheese sliders if you order two drinks at happy hour. Happy hour dinner also includes a choice of several steaks, along with sides and deserts for $49. ALFRED'S FTW!

Dined with friends at Alfred's Steakhouse. old SF ambiance with red walls and leather booths. Marco, the owner, is terrific and Neil, our waiter, was top-notch. fabulous caesar salad, melt-in-your-mouth steaks, yummy sides and save room for dessert.
