We're big fans of Alexander Steak House. When we heard their offshoot ALX Gastropub was opening we went there on our next trip to SF. We were not disappointed! The food was spectacular. The service was perfect. The decor was modern and light. We were happy to be there and left discussing when we could come back. More

American | SOMA, San Francisco

Hands down one of the very best meals of my life. This is the revelatory experience I'm always hoping but rarely achieving to find when trying a new fine dining restaurant. All sixteen dishes were gems and tasted even better than we could have expected. They are polished and refined, but even more delicious than they are beautiful. Strong bold flavors, a commitment to rich and fatty flavors without being overly heavy and providing many really distinctive dishes and tastes. The restaurant was warm and inviting, very well lit (which is great for seeing and taking photos of the dishes) and I really adored our waiter who was great to talk to and provided tons of valuable context. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant and look forward to returning. More
