Eat At One Of The Best SF Steakhouses For Under $100 per person: Alexander’s Steakhouse

  Posted by - July 18, 2016 - $$$ (50-100), Dinner, Restaurants, San Francisco

So here’s a common misconception: Alexander’s steakhouse is expensive AF.

If you’re like me, you want a bomb ass meal that doesn’t break the bank.

Anyone with me on this?

While it is true that Alexander’s serves some of the most expensive steaks in SF, you can also have a delicious meal for under $100 per person AND be completely full to the brim.

Winnnnnn. (If you don’t turn to the last page of $100+ Wagyu steaks lol).

Now let’s talk about the most affordable steak on the menu. The 8 ounce filet for $52.

It’s SO GOOD. In fact, this is my favorite steak in all of SF.

All their steaks are in the top 1 percent of best quality in the US. Basically, that means they only use the best product they can get their hands on. You can even track the lineage of each cattle! And none of them are fed antibiotics.

This 8oz filet in particular is very tender, juicy, and consistent.

Let’s talk about that last part- consistency. You know how most steaks are cooked more on the outside and more rare on the inside? Well, that doesn’t happen here. Every bite is consistent throughout the entire filet.

Now after this $52 steak, you still have ~$40 bucks to spend. (aka $80 bucks between you and your hot date). 

To get the best bang for your buck, go for the sides instead of the appetizers.

Although… this uni toast and hamachi shot is fire!

Uni toast ($9) with braised oxtail on a toasted brioche is one of my favorite bites.

And this Hon Hamachi shot $5– made with avocado, serrano, cilantro, yuzusoy, garlic and radish is HEAVEN.

Again, both these bites aren’t “filling” but they are damn good!

If you’re looking for a more filling meal, save your money for the bigger sides ranging from $9-$16.

Choose between wild mushrooms, rainbow carrots, fries, grilled asparagus, caramelized sweet onions and more.

We recommend the confit fingerling potatoes and sugar snap peas.

Side: this asparagus salad also tastes AMAZING. It’s not exactly “filling” but the ingredients are so fresh, unique, and the flavors are unlike anything I’ve had.

In a nutshell, if you don’t turn to the back page and order a 100+ wagyu steak… then you won’t break the bank. Get the 8oz filet for $52 bucks- it’ll rock your socks off!

    Have you tried any of their wagyu steaks?

      I have! Definitely one of the best steaks I’ve ever had- perfectly marbled throughout. But also expensive (insert crying emoji) haha.

    If this is your favorite steak in SF, it must be good! Will have to check them out. What’s the steak in your last picture called?

      It’s the Schmitz Heritage Strip Steak 12oz, for $68. It’s good too, but honestly its not as tender as the filet!
