Alfred's Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: This historic FiDi steakhouse nears its 90th birthday with a facelift from San Francisco’s Daniel Patterson Group (Coi, Alta CA). Excellent representations of classic cocktails are highlighted by a quartet of Manhattans; lemon oil adds a refreshing note to vodka standards. Openers of meaty, chilled gulf prawns and bites of house pastrami on grilled bread with Dijon and pickle both feature bold horseradish. Savory oysters Rockefeller incorporate Scotch, creamed spinach and crisp pork belly. Mesquite-grilled, dry-aged steaks headline the menu, and are paired with five unique sauces and sides of creamy mascarpone mashed potatoes, asparagus with fried egg and pine nuts, and an herbaceous roasted bone marrow. We enjoyed the tableside showmanship involved in preparation of the house salad of romaine with Champagne vinegar and soft croutons, as well as the flaming bananas Foster.

Wow was this utterly disappointing. Having tried several of Gayot's top Ten in San Francisco I felt betrayed by this rating. (R and G Chinese - which was rated in the top five - AWESOME and a great find)

The Porterhouse King - good but loaded with strips of gristle that reduced its forty ounces by half.

The Cesar - supposdly made at the table. NOT. and it was just okay.

My wife's wine had gone off. They opened a new bottle.

The creamed spinach - the consistency of oatmeal with too little water.

I am REALLY annoyed with this meal. Any Mortons takes this place hands down.
