Dinner was amazing!
Phenomenal food and service. That family style Ribeye tomahawk was fantastic.. and the popcorn crab too
Octopus appetizer was beyond great. Wagyu ribeye was very very tender. Lobster was great. Lobster fried rice was ok. Free croissant was super delicious, also some free soda, salmon bits, and a birthday dessert. Overall the experience was simply great! The stuff are also very friendly.
All of the appetizers were fantastic!
Seafood paella was decent but it was way over priced.
Macaroni and cheese was awful and the peppers had no salt.
Drinks were average but nothing great.
I will only come back for appetizers and wine next time
Upon entry my husband and I asked for masks, since we left them in our car. The hostess at the check-in area (with a leopard mask) did not greet us, was irritated when we asked for masks and was quite aggressive when asking if we had reservations. After seating us, a few minutes later my husband and I were escorted to a nearby table. The same hostess (with the leopard mask) saw us gathering our belongings as we were making our way to the nearby table and immediately commanded to both my husband and I in an aggressive manner: "you need to keep your masks on."
We were shocked by her ongoing aggressive demeanor toward us, which ruined our dining experience from the start. Our family celebrated our wedding by having a dinner at The Sea several months ago, so this restaurant always held a special place in our hearts. We will likely not visit The Sea in the near future.
We did a pre-set meal for our 33rd wedding anniversary and the experience was worth the price. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and they were not rushing us whatsoever.
This was not our first time. However we were more than pleasantly surprised with our overall experience. We felt safe with all servers and staff fully masked and gloved, physical space between tables, even though the dining room was wonderfully full!
Our servers knowledge and recommendations were spot on. The food was delicious and conversation was lively.
Celebrated our 25th Anniversary. Had tasting menu and the seafood dishes were amazing! Very fresh and the flavors were nuanced and nicely balanced. We did not love the Wagyu Beef as it was tough and not particularly exciting to our taste buds. The service was fantastic and professional.
Friendly staffs and amazing food. You truly get your moneys worth!
To celebrate 25th anniversary. Everything was really good. We got the full tasting menu with the complementary wine which was great. Only knocks is that the cod was very sweet and it was a little loud at the beginning of the evening.
The service was lack of sensible. I had much higher standard with this place. There were flies in my red wine. First I thought, it was the wine sediment so I had couple sips of it. After, letting the staff know. I received the excuse, why the flies were in the glass, got a fresh glass of wine and still got charge for it. Its clear to me that my experience is not their priority.
You can never go wrong with Alexander's. The food, service and staff are always amazing. The tasting menu was perfect and had a little taste of everything. Thank you Alexander's for another great evening.
Food was outstanding, servers very attentive to your needs and very helpful as it was our first time here
What a fantastic anniversary dinner we had..Having Jorge and alba white truffles was the hightlight of the evening..The bread is always the best.The A1 Australian steak was delicious as well..The food,service,and ambience were amazingOur Paradigm 2014 bottle was so good as well.We will be back soon for more truffles..thanks for the aniversary card and treat!
Only negative….entree took a long time. We thought order wasn’t put in. But once arrived…
Joana the server made the huge difference. You guys are lucky to have her in your team! Kudos 👍🏾
Food was extremely underwhelming. Decor felt outdated.
Everything was excellent did the saying menu with wine pairing was worth it….service was at the level expected!!
ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING! Tonight was magical. Every aspect of our experience was top notch. This meant so much to me because today would’ve been my brother in laws 40th birthday. He passed a little over a month ago and was a foodie. He would’ve loved this place. So I came to The Sea to celebrate him and you made it so special. Thank you! I will be back.
Our server Joanna, was the best!!!!!!
Everything was great!
It was wonderful. Thank you for making my night memorable.
We were given a gift card so this was our first time at The Sea. We were greeted Happy Anniversary from arrival, when we were seated and throughout our meal by different staff members. Service was exceptional and led by our server Steven, who checked on us with each course.
The hamachi shooters were delicious. Steven told us to mix it throughly, then shoot it down, but it would not fall out of the glass. Plus, I would probably choke on the micro greens because it was quite a mouthful so we chose to use our appetizer forks.
Husband preferred that the grilled octopus be seasoned more and grilled longer so it would have a charred taste. Otherwise, there was no taste.
They served us a complimentary smoked(?) salmon sushi roll. It tasted ok.
The bread basket had 4 lobster cheddar biscuits, 4 furikake croissants and 2 seaweed crackers. The biscuits were rather dense so not much flavor, but the croissants tasted freshly baked and the crackers were interestingly good.
I ordered the seafood paella which had a wonderful flavor. I was surprised at first because literally the rice was one rice grain high, but the pan was pretty large (maybe 6”- 8”) so it ends up probably a 3/4 cup of rice. The shrimp, octopus, calamari, artichoke and chorizo covered the rice completely.
We have never had wagyu before so husband ordered the wagyu ribeye medium. The sauce that completely covered the ribeye was a little bitter. He would have preferred it was a glaze at the bottom of the plate or else on the side in a little dipping dish. Still, he enjoyed the meat, but next time, he’ll order it medium rare.
We shared the seasonal vegetables, which is more than enough for two, considering the large entree portion.
For dessert, we ordered the refreshingly yummy Pretty in Pink. You could taste the hint of lychee and guava.
The complimentary chocolate cake was light and perfect with my Nutella latte.
We already have reservations to go back with the family during the holidays.
Service was excellent. Food was too rich for our tastes. Wagyu beef was too fatty, but that’s probably my ignorance as to what it’s supposed to be like. I have read it’s better if it’s thin cut. It was a large steak and think, and I think I would have preferred thinner, smaller and less expensive.
Very good service. The apps and main course were excellent. Surprised us with some free sushi app and cotton candy to add to our dessert. Overall, prices were very high, but food quality and service warranted some of those costs. Charged extra for an ice-t refill, which was a little annoying. Offered a non-alcoholic raspberry mojito, which was great for the kiddo. Overall, a very good dinner, but would need to be a rare occasion for us based on prices. We had oysters, truffle fries, paella, cab filet mignon, and matcha bombe for dessert.
Disappointing. We reserved Friday evening for our anniversary. We were courteously greeted but it went downhill from there. We were seated in the small side room which we were ok with because of COVID protocols but the ambiance was much less appealing than the main room. We chose cocktails: the Watermelon Sugar, which was excellent and the Koi Pond which was poorly mixed and hard to drink.
We ordered the hamachi shots as an appetizer, the miso cod on lobster soboro and the grilled lobster as entrees. And as a lark, the truffle fries.
We were offered an amuse bouche but it was delivered and described so hurriedly by a server who immediately left that we had to ask our primary waiter for a second description. Both the amuse bouche and the bread course lacked freshness and were chilled as if they had been refrigerated for some time.
We shrugged this off and ordered glasses of Chardonnay in anticipation of our entrees. The wine arrived with the hamachi but one glass had multiple chunks of cork and was sent back.
The cod presentation was good. T he lobster was underwhelming, it was limp and artlessly arranged on the plate.
When we tried them the cod was tasty with a nice range of flavors and textures but the $75 lobster was awful. We tried bites from both ends and a small cut from the middle. It was overcooked, rubbery, and mostly tasteless. We called our waiter over to send it back after three bites. When I described it as overcooked and rubbery he responded that the lobster is boiled before being grilled and shruggingly said it can be hard to get it right on the grill! This left us with no confidence so we switched to a Japanese red snapper on cauliflower. In the meantime the replacement chardonnay arrived too cold to drink.
The cod was flaky at the edges but raw and gray in the middle leaving about 30% inedible.
Our waiter brought cotton candy but a fly landed in it as he set it down, which sort of summed up the night.
Excellent service and food.
Always the best seafood and steak in the Bay Area!
Lovely, upscale dining establishment with large attentive staff. For our party of 4, all main dishes were excellent; Chesapeake Black Sea Bass (special) and Miso Black Cod. Appetizers to share were outstanding: fresh Monterey Bay calamari (special); Hamachi Shots; fresh oysters on half shell. All in all a delightful evening. This is our fourth dining at The Sea, and we indeed shall return. Highly recommended.
Over-priced and very unimpressive; past its time and in need of a refresher
Great service, wonderful food. Outdoor patio is delightful
The restaurant is beautiful and the staff (waiter) were awesome! We were a bit disappointed in the prix fixe dinner and wine pairing. The sashimi was so small that we could barely taste it, the scallop was delicious, the black cod was missing in flavor. The wagyu had great flavor but was extremely chewy and impossible to eat. The wine pairing was great but the entire meal was rushed. I had to ask the waiter a couple times to slow down. I understand there are other customers but we barely had time to finish one course when the next course was being served. This was a special occasion and we were disappointed in the quality of the food.
We wish we didn’t have this experience because it is not representative of what we have had in the past. On the plus side, the staff we very nice and helpful. The selection is great. And, now for the bad. The premium dish was prepared ok, but at $225, it should be outstanding. Presentation was lacking, flavor was good, but overall, the plate looked like it had wilted. Lobster rice was over salted and over garliced. We asked for no truffle oil on the fries, we got truffle oil. This turned into a staff gaffe when they tried to convince us that it was parmesan cheese. They placed another order and there was no truffle oil this time. Fundamentally, overpriced for good, but not great, food.
The service was very nice, waiter and waitresses were very helpful they attend all our need and they reminded us about the anniversary every chance they had.
Also food was great and the chef's complements were hmmm delicious!
