Some of the food was cold, meat grizzly, and when I order a steak, I don't want 3 slices of meat. Vegetables were overcooked. Called next day to express my dissatisfaction, talked to a manager who was suppose to get back to me. Never did. We will never go back.

If you like your hamburger buns stale and your french fries cold, this is the place for you. 2nd & last time I will ever come here. My first time I came here, I had problems with my burger so the manager gave me a card to get another burger at half price....which I took advantage of today.....w…

This resturant is a great treat for anyone who appreciates a good home cooked meal. Every dish is prepared with fresh tasteful ingrediants. You've got to try their breakfast. We ordered the pecan and banana pancakes and it practically melted in our mouth! It was the best breakfast we've had on t…

I live in Colorado and everytime I visit San Antonio, I make it a neccessity to eat at Sawasdee. Most restaurants say their food is authentic, and some may be, but Sawasdee is 100% authentic. The servers are Thai, and the cooks are Thai as well. \r \r The noodle dishes are fantastic. With each…

I have rated one other Applebees in the local area, and the service and food did not suprise me at all. Located ideally near the crossroads of 410 & 281 this place leaves you want better. The food is decent, but no where close to the quality you'd expect from atleast a decent sit down rest…

This is a cool place to get everyone together and meet up for happy hour. Nothing special about the drinks or food but the ambiance and client el are good.

This is one of the best place to eat, have an anniversary dinner, birthday party, or a meeting with family, friends or some one you want to impress. The food is hot, varied, delicious, and FRESH. I have always wondered why a lifetime card was not made available. if there were a 500 dollar gift…

Hidden Gem on the Hill! Went in with my family and was served the best portabella ribeye that these taste buds have ever had. Add on a lobster baked potato for only 3.99! Are you kidding me! What a deal of a meal! Love this place and the staff! Just ask for Rancher's table and you'll feas…

I am new to San Antonio, and I was thrilled to be introduced to Little Italy. The restaurant's interior reminds me of a cute little Italian restaurant I used to go to when I was growing up in Chicago. We were warmly greeted at the door, and led to a cozy booth for two. The service was excel…

Very excellent food no matter what you order, and the staff are wonderful. We eat there often, and I have taken others with me and then they become fans. Never too busy or dead. This is a very reasonable place to eat. Laura P.

I have no idea what people are complaining about. Every single restaurant in the world, sometimes orders are mixed up. Yet, nobody talks about when they get good service so I will start:\r \r I used to work at Rackspace from 07 to 08 and not once did they have a problem w/my order. I love thei…

Excellent service. Great ambiance. The stuffed flounder is exquisite. Highly recomend the stuffed mushrooms as well as the fettucini alfredo. Child friendly, low-key, romantic setting for those of us who have to balance both simultaniously. Elegant private booths also. Especially inviting when t…

All around, a top notch restaurant. I'd driven by it many times and really hadn't thought much of it; sort of unassuming in a strip mall on the northwest corner of 1604 and Redland Rd (new address). It was highly recommended to me by a trusted source, so I thought I would give it a shot. I was v…

LOVE LOVE LOVEZ THE PANDA WINDOW!!!!!! China King is beautiful inside & out!! The food there was pretty generic... The service was good considering that my visit was during the lunch hour. I got to use the print out coupon :) All in all i'd have to say... Give it a try its aight.

We had a horrible evening at the Hofbrau in San Antonio on Jones Maltsberger Rd. The managers did not care about our complaint about the blowing fans above our heads outdoors. It was a beautiful evening but the fans froze us out. We asked that they be turned down and all we got from our waitr…

I am not sure if many places...especially of the fast food sorts...would fit the bill for a 5-star rating. Still, Podna's Catfish and Po'Boys was an easy choice for a top rating. Having spent 6 months living in San Antonio, this place became one of my favorites. Although it is a place that could be easily overlooked on Austin Highway, and generally would not be fit for a 30 minute lunch if you work downtown, I found as many opportunities to go back as my co-workers would allow. The food in general is really good, but of course, you should shoot for the po'boys. My favorite was the 12" 1/2 fried oyster, 1/2 fried shrimp. Whatever you choose, it is overflowing with meat, the roll that it comes in is fresh and the sauce that you can add on your own is great. The fries weren't necessarily my favorite, but they are still really tasty and not overly fried or salty. This is a pretty basic restaurant, and watch out for the high noon lunches, as it might be difficult to find a table. But the staff is really nice and the owner, who willingly shares about his visit to New Orleans which led to the start of his business, is definitely a friendly character. Although I was never that rushed, they even have a drive-through, and I have heard that you can call in orders and have them cater. Now, I am off to new eating adventures in Dallas, TX as a next step in my own professional pursuits, but Podna's will definitely be on my list when I take my next trip to SA.
Across from the Hotel Valencia this little deli exceeded my expectations. We were waiting for the valet and I spied this deli across the street. I asked the girl at the counter for something quick and delicious. She suggested the Unforgettable Druthers (turkey, cream cheese, bacon, sprouts, tomato, and avocado) and Kenny's Klub (turkey, bacon, onion, tomato) sandwiches. When I got in the car my boyfriend and I split the Unforgettable Druthers first. Who knew sprouts could be so good. Later on we shared the Klub and that was amazingly good too. All I have to say that I am glad the valet took forever with our car. If he hadn't we might have never had the pleasure of eating here. Love the food, will be back next time I am in town. I can't wait to try those sandwiches from the grill! :)
My brother and his wife went to for their Anniversary a few days ago and I was looking to take my wife for her Birthday Meson was recommended we choose to give it a try and we're happy we did. The food, ambiance, service and the staff were great. We have the le, escargo as appetizer, the house salad (Organic spring mix) Service with the French vinaigrette, my wife had the Lamb and I had the grilled New York cut of beef served with the bernaise sauce, a bottle of Little Black Dress wine which was very good for $21.00 I spoke with the owner who is from Dominican Republic and he said that they moved from the Zavala where they open on 1995 now they have being in the new location since 2008.Any way we enjoy everything there and will be back and tell every badge we know to give a try.
Now When we want a nice diner or lunch we go to Meson. The food is very very good we was there a few days ago for diner and to day we went for lunch We ordered the Ceasar Salad for two prepared table side and their lunch day special which was crab meat sauteed with a reduction of batter and wine with a hint of east indian spices, friend order the grilled salmon which was fresh and juicy, the Ice Tea and lemonade was the best we ever have, we complement the waiter and he said they use Kangen Water to make their tea, coffee and their thing in the restaurant. They have a full bar with very large wine list at very good price and private room for meeting. The place is beautiful and the people are nice. We recommend
I have lived in San Antonio for 15 years, I moved here from New York and could never find a pizza I liked they all tasted just like Pizza Hut. I recently ate at the new pizza place off University Heights and could not have been happier there pizzas where made with fresh ingredients. The pizzas where thin and crispy and full of flavor they had fresh pieces of tomatoe on all of there pizzas and it added so much more flavor. I would recomend this place to anyone who enjoys new york style pizza its not greasy and has a very fresh taste. Not only is the pizza outstanding they have a full bar and happy hour. Deffinantly go try this place!!!
You have got to try this place. The ambience is homey...the food is FANTASTIC! The grilled chicken sub is supremo. This place has more than just pizza...it has lasagne, spaghetti, subs. I'll put it this way, when my 9-year-old son took a bite of the chicken sub, he said, "Bada-Bing!" Locally owned and operated by Flo. She's the best and she has always made sure we are well satisfied. Prices are very economical especially for the absolute best flavor anywhere. We are so glad we heard about it on the radio and gave it a try. What a find!
BEST PLACE TO EAT IN THIS AREA THE CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS, AND THE FOOD IS GREAT !!!!!!!!!! DON'T PASS THIS PLACE UP YOUR YOU WILL MISS A CHANCE TO EAT GREAT FOOD AND ENJOY THE RESTAURANT THE DECOR IS VERY RELAXING.RECOMMEND TO GO FOR DRINKS AT THE END OF THE DAY THEY HAVE A BAR TOO. SERVICE IS FAST AND GREAT IF YOU HAVE BEEN GOING TO RUTHIES DOWN THE STREET SKIP IT AND GO TO WEST AVE ONCE YOU BEEN HERE YOU WILL NOT GO ANY PLACE OTHER THEN HERE THEY HAVE EVERYONE BEAT HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!......:O)
The hotel was beautiful but check in time was supposed to be at 4pm and we got there at 3:30 just to be told or room was not ready and it would be at least an hour. Or only other option was to downgrade from out king size suite to a double bed one. A butler there told us they always had this problem and there was a long line of people complaining about the same issue. No one apologized for our inconvenience of having to wait at the bar tired after a long drive. Not sure if I will return again.
Excellent food, service, and ambiance! My husband and I had a nice romantic dinner here a few days ago and I am still dreaming about the food we had. The chicken marsala and steak was cooked perfectly!! All side dishes complemented the main dishes quite well. The service could not have been better. The entire waitstaff was very attentive, but never seemed to be hovering or bothersome either. The atmosphere was gracefully refined and inviting. I can not wait to go back again!
This restaurant is real new and we have been there four times already. They are a young couple trying to get this restaurant going and they have all the right ideas. The food is very good and they are so friendly and will fix anything on their menu to your liking. They are still in the process of getting everything 100 percent but think you should give them a try. So far I have tried the Tom Yum, Beef Salad and Fried Rice. Next I want to try their Lemon Chicken...all very good.
