We have been going to Alfred's Steakhouse every year after finishing a horse sale and it is always something we look forward to. The food and service are always first class and we always leave saying, "That was the best meal yet." The Hennessy side cars are our favorite drink on the menu and never disappoint. Thank you for making... More

Cannot thank the staff and management enough. In short, I left my wallet in a cab and only realised once we had sat down. Whilst I went off to try and reunite myself with if they looked after my wife and kids as if they were their own. Nothing was too much trouble for them and to top it it... More

We went there as a family of 4 people. The waitress that welcomed us was very pleasant. After that, we had to wait a long time in order to get serve. Not going to lie, I had one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. We all ordered something different and basically you can't go wrong. They give generous portions... More

We have been coming to Alfreds since 1992, back when they were on Broadway. Now they are located in the financial district in the space that used to be the Blue Fox. The drinks are very generous and the steaks consistently good. This evening we ordered the forty niner special . For $49 you get your choice of salad or... More

Alfred's Steakhouse is located in what would first appear in a non-descript location down a small alley. But, once you get inside the environment is pure old San Francisco steakhouse -- well dressed waiters, leather booths, dim lighting, a fantastic well-stocked bar. It dates back to the 1920's and has kept the atmosphere. So, if you are looking for "trendy",... More

I had never been to Alfred's but had visited many of the local steak/prime rib restaurants over the last 2 years. Local residents with some association to the financial district spoke highly of the food and the old style steak house look. They were right on. Apps like toasted garlic bread, prosciutto wrapped shrimp and calamari may lack for creativity... More

Although I left CA in 2000, I've probably been to Alfred's Steakhouse dozens of times, even the original location over the tunnel (!) and have never had a negative experience. This place still defines class from the moment you enter and are greeted by warm, personable people. The steaks are perfectly cooked, the sides are excellent, the salads are fresh... More

Advertisement descriptions for this restaurant use terms such as “Alfred’s ambiance radiates with the feel of true fine dining … the glow of dazzling chandeliers, starch white linens” and so on. This is all true, but our experience here one Thursday night was marred by being rushed. When booking on the restaurant internet site, we only had the choice of... More

Alfred's staff was extremely friendly and the food was great. It might be the best steak I've ever had in San Fran!
