In older versions there was an option to reset safari
But in 9.0.3 I am not seeing this option
What are the alternatives? How can I reset safari 9.0.3?

Safari can also be reset from the command line.
Open a Terminal window and type the following or to be safe launch finder and navigate to the following locations and manually delete or move these
mv ~/Library/Safari ~/Desktop/Safari-`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S`; \ rm -Rf ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari; \ rm -Rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari; \ rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/Apple\ -\ Safari\ -\ Safari\ Extensions\ Gallery; rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.LSSharedFileList.plist; \ rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist; \ rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist;
This should give you a fresh Safari with the menu item option to reset Safari again.
