    Alexander's dry ages its Omaha prime beef for 28 days. If you really want to go all out, you can sit at the $300-per-head chef's table or the $248 "study of beef" dinner for seven very meaty courses. Read more

    Amazing cuts of cow that you can't get at Morton's or Ruth's Chris. Be prepared for the check, or have a salesperson take you there if you have to listen to a spiel.

    Impeccable service and brilliant steaks. Medium rare was perfectly executed on the filet. Side portions may be a bit small for some, so generally speaking order a side per person at the table.

    I don't eat steak, yet this steakhouse made it on my list of amazing restaurants. Yes, it's that amazing. They give you cotton candy after your meal. The lobster is delicious. Also the asparagus side.

    the ambiance the food the waiters top notch top class man everything about alfreds was phenomenal - expect to pay for all of this, although what is money if you cant enjoy the finer things.

    Great atmosphere, great service, great food...but the steak itself.was slathered with too many sauces and toppings. Cooked perfectly, but "less is more" when it comes to great steaks in my opinion.

    Bone marrow, pork belly, hamachi shots, and tasty red meats the price of small cars. Sometimes it's fun being a carnivore, and this is a decent place to celebrate it.

    You can share the side dishes with a friend of yours, no need to order separately. You might receive well done steak if you ordered medim or very dry steak if you ordered well cooked.

    Incredible Wagyu steaks. Pricing can be $50/ounce or even more...but it was the best steak I've ever had. Hamachi shots and foie gras are great too.

    Where to start! Bonita sashimi. Beet and cauliflower salad. Gangsta Dry aged ribeye! Say what up to Justin at the bar! Try a Bullfighter!

    Best $315 6oz steak I've ever had. Tastes as good as an 8oz $60 steak for sure.

    The hamachi shooters are like sushi without the rice in a little shot glass. You must try half a dozen.

    Truffle edamame, mango soup, shishito peppers, wild mushroom, and of course steaks. It's great for birthday celebration.

    You'll get fantastic steaks at this upscale place. If you're lucky they'll have actual Kobe beef.

    The uni toast is downright amazing. Creamy texture from the uni mixed with oxtail is an unexpectedly great pairing.

    Good dinner and nice meat selection. Although service was super slow (1-2 hrs to get dinner) and is on the expensive side (for a steakhouse)

    18 years in the city and I can easily say one of the best (if not the) best steak in the city.

    The cotton candy at the end of the meal is fun and tasty. Otherwise, not super impressed by much of anything here. There are better steaks in the city and the prime rib is definitely better at HOPR.

    The Burger is one of the best in SF. Not on the dinner menu anymore, but you can still order it

    Not your traditional steak house, it's good, but doesn't offer things you'd find at other steak houses, like a loaded baked potato.

    The Equinox of steakhouses. Completely overpriced. And when you pay that much money for a steak, at least it shouldn't be covered with sauce.
