I received a $5 coupon via email and expected to use it tonite. We finished our meal and was then informed by the waiter that it would not apply to the entrees we ordered, although the coupon did not state any restrictions. I spoke to the manager, Geena, and was astounded by her unprofessional m…

I am always surprised at the difference of opinions regarding restaraunts. J Alexanders has been a favorite of mine for a while. I have always experienced impeccable service and the food has always been of great quality. Ambience is one of a relaxing nature. I will be back many, many times.

We came for my birthday last night and got an unforgettable experience in exchange. We had an amazing server (King Julien) who made the night very special and very seriously deserves a raise for how well he took care of us. The food was delicious as well. My only complaint was the food was rat…

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.
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.
I have been to Pat O's many times for lunch and hurricanes and always have had a great time. Lately I have not been going out because San Antonio Bars are all the same. Meat markets with guys trying to grab you in places they should'nt. Tonight I was downtown with my girls and we ended up on the patio listening to an acoustic band jamming and drinking Yup you guessed it Hurricanes. I went to the ladies room and discovered a stairwell going up with people making their way up there. I followed a couple and ended up in a bar that reminded me of a place I went last winter in Berlin. OMG. it was amazing! I totally forgot about my friends and got lost in the middle of a packed sweaty dancefloor. The Dj was playing the most amazing techno I have ever heard in San Antonio much less the United States and the Bass just grabbed a hold of me and moved me all night. My girls ended up finding me and we had the time of our life! Forget all the other clubs in the city and go there. I promise you will have a blast!
This is the first Rainforest Cafe I have visited. When I heard my fiance, his parents and myself were going THERE for lunch I was disappointed... I thought it would be really tacky and embarassing to be there without kids... anyway, I was wrong! It was so cool inside - they don't just have decorations here and there, they go ALL OUT. It is really neat, a very cool place to eat a meal. Our waiter was a little inattentive, but the atmosphere and the food made up for it. Our portions were HUGE (even for America), and all of our food was very tasty! The aquariums inside were especially impressive... it would be a LOT of fun for a kid to go there, but it was fun for us adults as well!! Their menu is not cheap... not expensive... right in the middle... if you're looking for a fun place to enjoy a yummy lunch/dinner, go here!
My wife and I spent a wonderful anniversary on the river on a Saturday evening back in mid April. I knew we would have to wait since the place is not very big. The wait was only an hour so we just went to another restaurant just down the way and had drinks till our hour was up. He had the guacamole for two to start off with with a few beers. They both were great!.. beers were ice cold and we could not stop eating the guacamole Our waittress was very pleasent had given us just enough attention to make sure our drinks were never empty. We had the blackened prime rib which was very tasty and cooked just right. I would reccommend Boudro's to anyone over one of the chain steak restaurants you can go to one of those next time your are in Arlington or Waco.
We chose The Fig Tree to celebrate my son's 21st birthday and his receiving the Purple Heart for injuries received in Iraq. There were 10 of us along with several other large parties but we felt as if we were the only people in the restaurant. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the food was great. We ordered a variety of dishes and everyone of them came out perfect. When they found out what we were celebrating most of the staff, including the manager, came by to thank my son for his service and to wish him a happy birthday. It is a great upscale restaurant but with such pretty decor, outstanding service and excellent food it is definitely worth the money. When in San Antonio we will definitely to going back to the Fig Tree.
Went there the first day it opened. It was swamped but we were still seated fairly fast. It's typical home cooking fare. If you're not in the mood for typical American food, this not your place. They serve you a lot. I don't think you can walk away from this place hungry. Breakfast is also good. Most plates come with a lot of food. The ham was very good!!! What else is good;mac and cheese, hash brown caserole, meatloaf. Chicken fried steak and okra are decent, I don't believe everyting is made from scratch there as they state. Chicken fried steak looks and tastes a lot like IHOPS. The chicken fried steak is definitely better at Chili's across the street. But service is pretty good considering they have so may customers.
My good friend used to work here and she always speaks of how geeat it is fr the food to the bar. I have to say the food was great the staff were ALL so polite and friendly. When you walk in the door you instantly feel like you're at home or with all your best friends, they don't call it "The Neighborhood" for no reason they live up to the title, The bar was my favorite so many drinks to choose from,I would recomend the Pina colada it has a great flavor.KEEP IT COMING GUYS YOUR GREAT! defintly my hangout since my first visit, check it out at the corner of military drive and commercial(next to the valero) once you try it you wont wana go home.CHILI'S DON"T GOT NOTHING ON YOU GUYS!! :)
AWESOME!! great customer service given! My server was amazing she had a great attitude very friendly and fun she had my family smiling and laughing the whole time. Thanks Vanessa. the food was delicious beyond reason my mouth waters just thinking about it, The steaks were cooked perfectly. and The management even came to see if everything was to our liking, Thanks Alfredo keep up the GREAT work guys.OVERALL THE BEST DINING EXPERIENCE IVE HAD IN YEARS!!! I MOST DEFINITLY RECOMEND APPLEBEES SOUTHPARK!!
My wife and I really enjoy going to Kona for dinner. Great sushi, and other fish dishes, but not just limited to seafood by any means. I'm not usually a big salmon fan, but their salmon is wonderful. The portion sizes are large, but if you are on a tight budget unfortunately this place will have to be more of a celebration place, although most portions are good for 2 meals. Bar scene is really good too, outdoor seating patio, lively crowd. Half price appetizers during happy hour is nice too
