Love the Sopas!

Mmmm. On a rainy day, I think El Mirador. The soups are the best comfort food ever!

brunch barely average

We had teh omelet bar and there was absolutely nothing great about it. The potatoes on the omelet bar were good, though. The bread was a good change of pace but the server brought it out as were finishing our meal. She also didn't bother to refill tea or coffee. We asked another server.

Best meals I've had in San Antonio

I've read some of the older reviews and was shocked. I've been there twice in the last 2 months and found it to be the best meals that I had while in San Antonio. The service was great and the food was excellent. I was with a group both times and we had several items. Everyone loved it and I cannot think of a single negative. Even the manager was nice enough to call us cabs so that we could return to our hotels. I a... view more

Horrible if the server is- Guillermina

The food is ok. But the service is not good. We had a server name Guillermina, she is simply horrible. She is very rude. Twice I had the experience. Messed up with our order but did n't bother to say sorry. Again messed up with the bill, over charger my friend >>>>>>>>> In a word if u sit outside make sure your server is not Guill...\r She will make ur lunch/dinner horrible.

Great Interior Mexican food

I can't see why others are so negative. Our dining experience was wonderful. I had the filet with a sherry poblano sauce that was terrific and Terry had a ancho stuffed chicken that he really liked. I didn't like the ancho mashers, but the Mexican rice and baracho beans were up to par. Margaritas were good too. All-in-all it was a good dining experience for someone (me) who is afraid to try things out of the ordi... view more

Please don't walk - run away from this place!!

I can honestly say this was the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten. Hands down. We decided we'd like to have one really good Mexican (or Tex-Mex) meal while on our weekend family getaway to San Antonio. We're from Austin and grew up on home-made Mexican as well as local Tex-Mex fare. I researched a couple of travel websites and decided that El Mirador appeared to fit the bill. We ordered bean and cheese tacos f... view more

The only good thing was the water

I went there with friends who recommended it. The decor was nice, but a little sparse. There were about 6 tables occupied and a bigger party in the back. There were a number of people that obviously work there running around like army ants. As if it were packed. It wasn't. It took our server about 15 minutes to approach our table and order our drinks. A few minutes later, our drinks arrive. Then she split ... view more

What Brunch?

I've been to El Mirador several times for lunch and have never been disappointed but with breaksfast (not brunch) however, it was as if we were at a completely different restaurant. They opened 10 minutes late and the service was slow and left a lot to be desired (long wait, warm coffee). Our waiter initially handed us discontinued menus and only after 10 minutes did he provide the newer-accurate brunchless ones. ... view more

We Sought it Out and it Delivered!

We planned our trip to San Antonio on the web and came across El Mirador - it sounded great, so when we were there we deliberately sought out the restaurant... and it was fabulous! The tortilla soup was absolutely authentic, as were the entrees. Although the ambience needs a little work, the overall experience was very satisfying and we would defintely go back. Seek out El Mirador yourself and see what we - and ot... view more
