Wow I guess it depends on what day you go on, and who the waitstaff is or who is at the door. Everyone was great IMO from the front door to the elevator staff to our waiter and the person who opened for the waiter lol. The food was pretty good my bill alone was like $199.00 or so but I felt it was worth the money I spent. My sorority sister and I went one evening before going to the Majestic to see Chicago the musical and my experience was good and I am black.....so IDK lol

My wife and decided to have a romantic date, so we added Bohanan's to our itinerary. We decided to first visit the bar downstairs. We were greeted right away by the host. She checked us in to our reservation. We had a few amazing drinks while waiting. great Happy Hour. We were taken to the dining area via an elevator. As we got off the elevator, we were immediately greeted by name. The staff that waited on us, made it seem as though we were the only ones there. Great service. The food was amazing... from the candied jalapenos you get before the meal, to the Caprese salad appetizer, and to the Chataubriand for two that was served tableside. The food was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be going back.

Could not agree more with Sanative7.
I took an out of town guest in on a Thursday and hardly no one was there at 6pm and they could not believe or accept that someone could just show up for dinner without calling ahead..they could not have been more rude, condescending or frankly SNOBS at this jerk joint.
They would rather maintain their arrogant attitude and let a $300 ticket walk (that's what we spent next door at the Palm) then allow an unconfirmed reservation in. I was embarrassed for myself, my guest, and San Antonio and have NEVER seen such SNOBS in this city. If this is what you get at the front door, I can certainly understand the bad service inside that people are talking about!
They have lost my expense account and my business forever (trust me on that) and I will NEVER recommend them to an out of town business partner.
We went next door to the Palm and those folks the food terrific!. That's the place where they welcome and appreciate guests. Could not have had a better experience and will go back.
This place does not reflect the San Antonio friendly attitude and I apologize to all tourists that this place does business here.

Some of the food here is actually pretty good. If you don't mind being treated as a banjo player at an opera, this may be the place for you. My wife and I are native San Antonians, professionals, well-dressed, etc. We have eaten at Bohanan's a couple of times, and the service is uniformly awful. Most of us can understand a lapse in attention, which is what most bad service is, but at Bohanan's they also have that wonderful quality of service that informs you that the staff hasn't overlooked you; you're just not worthy of attention. Like I said, I think we're OK customers, just not good enough for Bohanan's. Thank goodness for tourists, because if there were no tourists in SA, this place would be a taco joint by now. A taco joint with better service, I daresay.
My husband and I go to Bohanan's for special occasions and other times when we are really just wanting a delicious meal. Having been there at least a dozen times I can tell you that I have never had a bad meal or bad service experience. From the minute we walk in to the minute we leave they go above and beyond to make the experience wonderful. Oh and then there is the steak...it melts in your mouth, incredibly tender and flavorful! Once we went there on our anniversary and mentioned to the waiter that we were going to take a horse carriage ride downtown and he took the liberty to arrange a taxi for us to get to the area where they were available. Great attention to detail. And, before you leave you must save room for the strawberries imperial, our favorite dessert in town!
My husband and I just returned from Bohanan's where we spent our 8 year anniversary. WOW! Truly awesome dining experience. The concierge was very friendly and made you feel welcome right after you step off of the elevator. The restaurant was "business casual" attire, but was still very comfortable, even for me (I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of person). The menu had many options and the prices were very reasonable, especially for such a great atmosphere. My husband ordered the red snapper and wild rice. The snapper practically melted in your mouth. Unfortunately, the wild rice was a bit "too wild" for my husband's taste. It tasted pretty good, but the texture was too weird to overcome. As for myself, I ordered the jumbo shrimp and potatoes augratin. When they say "jumbo", they really mean it. I have to say that I was amazed at how wonderful the shimp was. Right amount of breading, amazing flavor.. pure perfection. The potatoes augratin was pretty good, too. The only problem is that my stomach wasn't big enough to finish it all. If you go, I would reccomend "Mo" and "Daniel". Daniel is a bit quiet, but Mo is great! I definitely reccomend Bohanan's. It's my husband and I's new favorite get away in San Antonio.

1/10/2009 My husband and I took another couple here for their Anniversary. None of us had ever been there but we were looking forward to a wonderful experience. When the waiter came to take our order, one of the 4 of us didn't order a salad. The waiter said, ""Don't you want a salad? Everyone ELSE is having one."" (I thought: What, is this guy a car salesman?!) That was my first clue as to what was to come. Our appetizer came out at the same time as our salads. He never brought the vegetable side dish one of us ordered. My steak was delivered without the special Prawn on the top that I had ordered. (""oh, I'm sorry that will be right out."") The Goat cheese mashed potatoes were brought to the table with no serving utensil. After waiting 15 minutes for the missing prawn, and never receiving the serving spoon for the mashed potatoes, I finally got up to find the manager. I saw our waiter and he said, ""Oh, are you looking for your prawn?"" I said, ""I'm looking for my prawn, a spoon, and the manager"". The manger came over and I told him about the vegetable, the serving spoon, the prawn. The potatoes were cold by now and I told him to forget the vegetable and prawn because we were all finished with our steaks.He was apologetic and said he'd speak to the server. The server later returned to our table and apologized and offered us free dessert. But he never brought a dessert menu! For a place of this caliber, I would never expect such horrible service. The result? All they did was take the prawn and potatoes off the bill. To top it all off, that night at 1am, my husband was sick in the bathroom for 3 hours! Needless to say, we will never go back.

My wife and I visited San Antonio from Houston for a romantic weekend getaway. We had read about Bohanan's after it received 2nd place in the Texas Monthly Best Steakhouses issue. It did not disappoint. In fact, having been several times to the restaurant which was awarded 1st place, it was underrated by Texas Monthly. The candied jalapenos with cream cheese starter was excellent. We also had the Chateau Stack and Kurobuta steak. If you go, do not miss the French Grilled Oysters appetizer. They were the best. Chef Bohanan did visit our table and was gracious in describing the history of his restaurant, his plans for the future, as well as our common connections to Corpus Christi. However, the service from Jose, as head waiter, and Chris, who assisted, was impeccable. Regardless of how good the food was, the service we received was unparalleled. We now recommend Bohanan's to all of our friends, and gladly recommend it here. For us, it is the No. 1 steakhouse in Texas. For those who go, don't miss having dessert on the ""secret"" balcony (ask your waiter).
