In all honesty, there isn’t much left to be said about the restaurant Alexander’s Steakhouse in Cupertino, CA.
What I can say (which I’m sure many will agree) is that if you decide to spend a meal here, and you’re a red meat fan (or even a vegetarian) you will find something suitable and completely decadent.
I was lucky enough to dine at Alexanders with my family for my twin siblings HS graduation (whoa does time fly!) and more than enjoyed every moment of the meal.
For starters, my dad ordered for the table. Depending on your taste preferences, there really isn’t a wrong way to go.
A decadent set of the freshest Shigoku oysters with a pickled ginger migonette ($12 ea.), Squid Karaage— fried to perfection and served with a sweet chili sauce ($16), Beef Carpaccio drizzled with a light truffle vinaigrette, sprinkled with shimeji mushrooms and parmesan ($22), and last but not least a delicious plate of Jamon Iberico (the most prized cured ham!) surrounded by a heaping pocket of fresh Burrata cheese ($36), all graced the table.
A little Osetra Caviar, served traditionally, happened as well…
And then the most decadent parade of meat started to trickle out to the table…
A Dry Aged T-Bone (24oz!!) served with a trio of salts & grilled lemon for my dad…
The oh-so-insanely-decadent Hokkaido Wagyu for my baby brother (seriously look at that perfection)
sides on sides on sides for the table to share— I favored the mashed potatoes and the wild mushrooms (pictured) but the others were quite delicious as well…
And for me 14oz Dry Aged, Bone-in Filet Mignon.. To DIE FOR!
As it happens I was so fat and happy that by the time dessert arrived I had completely forgotten to take pictures… but let’s just say there was some beautiful dessert wine, a lovely blackberry Soufflé and complimentary cotton candy that seriously blew my mind. I think I’d forgo dessert in the future and just wait in anticipation for that whimsical little finish.
And if by now you aren’t convinced you must eat at Alexander’s… I don’t know what will get you there.
