Never heard of it, but we're invited to dinner there -- any thoughts, opinions, warnings, recs?
the beef quad is a little much but it's a good way to sample their offerings..there are many. i enjoyed it and took some home for breakfast the next day.
great service & atmosphere in an unassuming location. enjoy!
I've been to Alexander's several times. Always prompt with reservations - never have to wait.
Wine list is great. Salads --- I'm not a fan of their ceasar.
I've ordered their Kobe Burger... amazing. Best burger I've ever had in my life (and the price tag is pretty hefty, but worth the experience at least once).
I've also ordered their beef quad and couldn't finish it. I thought all 4 items were good, and took the left overs home for lunch the next day.
The steaks of course are always perfect. Sides --- Mac and cheese, rice, mushrooms, mashed potatoes, all were good. They are generous portions so you can share.
Service and atmosphere are nice too, but sometimes can get noisy.
haven't been yet, but doesn't this place give out Free Cotton Candy at the end of the meal?
edit: this place is $$$$ so bring your credit card.
things i might consider getting if I was going:
soup, sea of cortez scallops, crab, hamachi shots, filet mignon, cow & crustacean, 28-day dry aged NY; all 4 love, mac & cheese, sauteed chanterelle mushrooms, crimini mushrooms, haricot verts w/ bacon, mashed potatoes, steak fries.
