Menu

This is Besh’s first restaurant outside of his home state of Louisiana, and it

features a menu of authentic Old World cuisine, combining classic German and French

cooking techniques with a New Orleans touch. Lüke is conveniently situated in San

Antonio’s popular downtown district. Chef John Russ is enthusiastic about evolving his menu of farm fresh ingredients and bistro specialties including house-made pâtés and abundant plateaux of cold, fresh seafood, as well as chef-inspired blackboard specials. To complement its cuisine, Lüke offers an extensive wine list and beer selection.

Limited menu that didn't offer anything to suit me. Made mistake of ordering the mussels. Thought it said a pound on menu. Turns out they charge $1 per mussel! Ate the mussels and left for dinner elsewhere.

Let me just start off by saying, if you do not like loud restaurants, this place is not for you! I went one evening when they were playing music and it was too loud to talk. It would be better to go when their band is not playing. But the service was very friendly and the food was great overall. I tried three appetizers: the Crispy Brussel Sprouts, the Flammenkuchen, and their Petite Fried Gulf Shrimp Bam Bam and they were all great! For my entree I had the Pork Loin Schnitzel, which was very very good. I also tried some of their Lamb pasta dish, which was good as well, but didn't have enough lamb in it for the price I paid. Overall a very good experience! Would eat here again.

We ate fairly early so it was easy to get a table for 5. We opted to eat here because we were staying at the hotel and everywhere else had a very long wait time. Our waiter was ok...not much of a personality. The hostess was very nice. The food was not all that. In my opinion, over priced for what it was...giving something a fancy French name does not make it good. I ended up sick....vomiting and diarrhea for about 5 hours later that evening. It is now 3 days later and I'm still getting over it (Dr seems to think it may be a case of listeria) It was convenient at the time, but we won't eat here again.

The Schnitzel was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. The quail was also exceptional. The service was spot on and made for an all around wonderful dinner.

We were so excited to try this place since it's attached to chef Besh's name. Can't go wrong if it's owned by a known chef right? Well I was wrong. Service was the worst we have ever experienced. Horrible! He visited our table maybe 4 times. 2 of which we had to flag him down for drink refills and again for the check. That's even after we had mentioned it was our first time to Luke's. I know the Spurs playing is a big deal in San Antonio.... but so is my money to eat at a place while getting zero service because watching the game was more important. And there were only two other tables. This place seemed to be more of a sports bar than anot upscale restaurant. And what's with using kitchen cloths as linen napkins? Our plates and silver ware had dried food particles still stuck on them too. Disgusting! With all the other places to eat along the river, this place was not worth it at all. I do not recommend wasting your money and time here. Sadden that this place reflects chef John Besh. We have been to Besh Steakhouse and August. Fabulous!

Service isnt great. Their "house" bloody Mary is a just Zing Zang, and they charge way too much for it. Seriously though, bartender didn't tell us that the bloody Mary was a giant vat of Zing Zang, even though the host had said there were three different sizes that wasn't reflected on the menu. I guess the oysters at Happy hour were a good deal? Anyway, not a place I'd recommend.

Got a dozen raw oysters there on Sat. evening and my wife and I have been vomitting the past few hours, thanks for the food poisining!! We went there because some retard(s) online called this place the number 1 restaurant to eat at near Riverwalk, the bar and table service was absolutely terrible and the portions of food very dull and small. The ribeye steak I ordered was similar to a steak one would get at Jim's diner or Denny's for $7 not $30!! Wish I would have given them $150 and walked away before me and wife got sicker than ever. 0 Stars

visited because my friend was dying of hunger. The ambient is very nice. The service is professional. The food is ok but quite generous. I liked the burger. Nice place to eat.
