I have visited this location for dinner several times but this last visit was the first time I have ever ordered dessert. I ordered their dessert minis which are strawberry cheesecake, key lime pie, and chocolate trifle. I ordered one of each and thought they were very cute when the waitress brought them out. They were all lined up in shot glass like dishes with the spoon sticking straight out. For being so small they defiantly got your attention. The Cheesecake was probably my favorite, it was nice and creamy and had a wonderful flavor in the graham cracker crust and paired with the strawberries was very delicious. It was also a nice alternative to the traditional presentation of cheesecake. The key lime pie i didn't like so much though. The flavor of the key lime was pretty spot on it was just the crust that made the dessert not what it could have been. The crust tasted as if it could have been frozen and then thawed out or like a stale vanilla wafer cookie crumble. The chocolate trifle would have been my favorite since it was for sure made for a chocolate lover like myself but the mousse that was layered in between the cake was a one-note item. It had great texture but that was about all you got from it, it needed some added flavor like a liquor or a coffee or hazelnut or something to give it something special. The chocolate cake that was in it though was very good and my favorite part of that dessert it was light and moist and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. One thing about the cheesecake and key lime that i didn't like was the whipped cream. It tasted like it came from a can and a bit oily it was not anything like a fresh whipped cream so that is one thing i would definitely change. I had a overall great experience and minus the few set backs in the desserts i did really enjoy them. I would just suggest a few alterations and then i would most defiantly order them again.

UPDATED POSTING & CHANGE IN RATING: I revised my original rating of one star (based on my experience cited in the "Old Positing" below) to a five star for this location because management apparently pays attention to these reviews: (1) they cleaned house with new personnel and (2) training was apparently re-emphasized: The staff is extremely friendly at the window, orders are filled correctly; sauces are included, and the menu terminology confusion has been corrected. Great job top management in responding to your customers! _______________________________________________ OLD POSTING: (1) This particular location on Wurzbach and IH-10 over the last 36 months has invariably filled our family orders incorrectly, and one time there was a huge puddle of pickle juice on top of one of our BBQ plate orders. (2) For breakfast, they always seem to forget hot sauce with the order. (3) One very frustrating issue is a lack of training for the window clerks. When ordering CHICKEN TENDERS as described on the drive-through menu, the fast food clerk ALWAYS refers to them as & STRIPS; this continuously frustrates our family, as well as a few of our friends who also dine there, for fear that our orders will once again be filled incorrectly. RETRAIN THE CLERKS OR CHANGE THE OUTSIDE MENU: ARE THEY CALLED STRIPS OR TENDERS?! Overall, this is surprisingly terrible customer service considering the long-time positive experience I have had with other locations. I recently noticed a change in personnel as of February 2011, so we'll see how things go. If it's not fixed, we're gone!
In an era of cutting corners and passing along the bill to the customers, its great to know that their are restaurant owners who still care about the community they are a part of. The staff at Tresca are proud of their ellegant spot in the Plaza at Concord on Sonterra. The hostess explained to us that tresca meant "a love affair." And that the owners indeed have a love for the city they are part of. All of the art is local, and the food is exceptionally fresh crisp and tasty. The server informed us that Tresca is commited to using friendly farm meats and organic veggies. The wine list is extensive yet not over priced and if your group has varied tastes you can order bt the caraffe, glass, bottle, or just a splash. I thought this offering was unique and perfect for diners in this area. I love trying different wines, and it is obvious that Tresca has designed their wine menu with their guests in mind. The service was the best Ive had in quite a while. When it came time to move between courses, it felt as if the entire staff made our group the priority! Thank you and we will be back soon.
