In town for business and this place had great reviews. For the most part, the reviews were accurate. Make sure to reserve a table in advance. The eggplant Josephine was delicious as was the filet mignon. The wine list was decent. The service was okay, but a bit slow. The atmosphere was loud and cramped, but cozy as the establishment is fairly small. I would recommend this to my friends/family.

Just had dinner and thought best restaurant on riverwalk. Dave and Nathan were great. Loved my paella and my husband devoured his filet and potato croquettes. He also had room for bread pudding. I'd put this number one on your list

Nice and cozy little restaurant at the riverwalk. Food is good and tasteful and service is fine. Unfortunately there was a cockroach in the restaurant - but the staff was cool about it and it is what you can expect when eating by the river.

Extremely rude owner or senior staff member when my friend and I showed up without a reservation. We were not expecting to get a table, just stopped by to ask nicely if it was possible. I am an attorney, we were well-dressed, and I had plenty of $$ to spend, but I will NEVER go there again!

This place was amazing. I called ahead and I told them I was going to propose. They set us up in a great spot in the restaruant and the waiter even took pictures for us while I proposed. The food is great, probably some of the best food on the riverwalk. It is a bit pricey but if you appreciate fantastic food and service then it is worth every penny.

If I could give zero stars I would. The owner is one of the rudest people I have ever met. He blamed us for him not checking his messages to know our party had changed from 3 to 4. He then refused to seat 3 of us at a 4 top. He expected us to sit at a 2 top. He said at his restaurant, 3 people sit at what barely seats two people. This was while there were several outside patio tables available, 3 four tops open, and one 5 top open. We of course know not to spend $$$ at a place this rude and quickly left.

Had to wait for 15 minutes for a table we had booked. In this time they turned away lots of unbooked couples and families. When we got in the place was half empty. We ordered the sizzling plater, it came out luke warm. The meat was lovely but there was none of the expected Mexican spice. Thoroughly disappointed. In fairness the manager only charged us half for the main course, as we spoke to him about the meal.

The host was amazing! He asked us if we had a reservation, we said sorry we did not. He essentially asked us to wait a few minutes and he'll see if any last minute cancellations. We were seated almost immediately. The service was amazingly top notch. Not an issue with our waiter at all. Possibly one of the very best waiters I've ever had ever had be our waiter. Drinks were always filled, his knowledge of the menu is amazingly an accord, and the knowledge of the wine menu was spot on. Our meal was very simple. Absolutely one of the very best steaks I've ever had med-rare, perfect!! Absolutely would recommend this place to everyone. Get your reservations in, and it is worth the wait and drive to visit this fine establishment. We will alway come back to this restaurant when we visit San Antonio again. Superb!!!
