I’ve been curious about Alexander’s for a few months now so decided to give it a shot. I’ve eaten at several steakhouses across the US and the globe, so I have a preconceived notion of how steak should be done. Sadly, Alexander’s Blackened Ribeye did...More

We went to the bar and it was very nice with nice ambience and service. The restaurant was the opposite with snobby waiters and overpriced wines. The more you spend the more attention you get. I would not go back to the steakhouse.

If you are into ridiculously overpriced food with condescending waitstaff and odd combinations, this is the place for you. I had decided on a wine, but the waiter wouldn't listen to me as he prattled about the wine *he* thought I should have. I actually...More

This was a cut above the usual high end chain steak houses. The service and wagu steaks sets this apart. The service was first class and the wagu steaks were amazing. Be prepared to spend given the service and steak quality.

Old school steak restaurant in Pasadena, extensive wine list with some ridiculously higher end Riojas, but plenty of other options as well as a serious scotch offering.

I really wanted this to be a great experience. I travel with a group of friends to different cities every year, and we always make a point to have one meal in a higher end restaurant. Unfortunately, this definitely was not the dining experience we...More

My title says it all, really. If you're looking for an old school italian american steakhouse or a rowdy place like pinnacle peak where your tie will literally get cut off, this is not the place for you. Alexander's is more or a fusion/fine dining...More

Dropped by for a drink and a burger. Expensive choice on my part. They had a weird edamame hummus which could be a good idea. It looked great. Didn't taste too interesting but I don't think that is what they were aiming for. Busy, nice...More

Three words to describe our experience at Alexander's Steakhouse in Pasadena; overrated and highly disappointed. Steaks were not prepared to our order; our order was served incomplete; the server was missing in action; and had to get some other employee’s attention to make him aware...More
