If you want to try a different cuisine.....tired of Mexican, burgers or pizza all the time? Don't want that sluggish feeling ya get after eating so much pasta again?Experiment and try out some Israeli cuisine. Fresh and delicious food like sandwhiches made to the order---with even the vegetables cut/sliced fresh to order. I know this because I have seen it myself. Combinations of flavors and food items that are unique to many people, but that you will really LOVE when you go. Don't miss out on their incredible soups too! You'll want the entire batch of soup----they're that good!As a frequent customer here, I have seen new customers come in, order items they've never tried or tasted ever before, and watch them DEVOUR their plates and state how delicious the food is. Doesn't that say enough?Having coffee that's better than Starbucks doesn't hurt either! Seriously true, folks!Ya know how you can go into some places, ask them questions about their food and it's like they're annoyed with it or they just don't know? I promise you, you will NOT get that type of service here. They're happy to help, happy to explain things to you.So, just do it. Try them out. You'll thank me for the suggestion.

I wish I knew where to start. This restaurant needs bigtime improvement before I go back. Me and my husband went in for a late breakfast and the place was packed. But the funny thing is that the whole restaurant is small anyway. Have you ever been to a check-cashing place? Well the size of that …
The Carriage House Bistro is a part of the Botanical Garden... my fiance had planned on going through the garden, but we stopped in the Carriage House Bistro first to have lunch. IT WAS AMAZING!! I don't know why their website doesn't have more information on it and how good it is. Anyway, we or…
Very good! I went here for lunch today and my entire group enjoyed their dishes. I had the 1/2 Fried Shrimp Po'Boy and fries. The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked and it was VERY filling. The fries are frozen crinkle cut variety and a little soggy so I would probably wouldn't order them again. But everything else was GREAT! The service was good and the food came out quick. I will be back! Oh and the menu changes daily, so what's online is what the have every weekday. But there are several other dishes that change daily that are not on the website.
Just had lunch here. The food was great! Lg portions of good cajun food. Only thing is that the service is not good at all. The waiter was on the phone most of our visit and was not very welcoming when customers entered the restaurant. He was scrambling to find menus and cups with ice for the drinks. They have live music on Friday nights, and I'm curious to see what that would be like...maybe better and more upbeat? I will def eat the food again, but next time I think I will call in a to-go order and pick it up.
The food was great! I grew up in Louisiana, and this place made me feel back at home. The food was so good that I literally ate until it hurt. The service was good, but it would have been hard not to be. It was really slow when we went and I am pretty sure the owner was our waiter. She didn't say for sure and I didn't ask. Oh, well. I would definitely recommend this place and I would definitely go again.... and again.... and again. :D Yum. I'm getting hungry just thinking about this place!
I had the Jalapeno-Cheddar french toast from the brunch menu. It was very plain, with very few jalapenos and no cheddar cheese that I could taste. In San Antonio, if a dish has jalapenos, I expect some heat. The menu states that it is "dipped in special batter". The batter seemed to be a simple egg-milk mixture, nothing special, The coffee was luke warm and just average quality. Service was attentive.
Good burgers and really good "Splinters". The splinters are slices of onion and jalapenos that are battered and fried and served with ranch dressing. They are wonderful! The staff was very friendly and the service was really quick. We were on our lunch break and we had plenty of time to sit and chat. The food came out so quickly and it was piping hot! Good experience!
They have gone way downhill. Rubbery tortillas and small portions have replaced the homemade flour tortillas that they once had. They have gotten far from their Blanco Cafe roots. Profits haven't gone back into the restaurant. You will find torn bench seats at most booths. I have been going here since they opened and grew up on Blanco Cafe. This is going to be my last visit.
Surprising, the burgers are truly old fashion flavored. With the juicy meat and the crispy toasted bun around the edges. The fish sandwich is flavorerful, too. Put on a bun with two white meaty fried fish. Also, the dinner is super clean, and family fun. Single women can meet good looking men from the Ft. Sam Base. ;)
LOVE THIS PLACE! It is like a second home to me. The owners and the waitresses/servers are all ver friendly and know their stuff when it comes to hookah combos. The food is good, the music selection is good, and I always find myself laughing and having a good time here. Favorite hookah bar in SA
