Upon hearing about "Brusketa" I was excited to say the least. Finally an authentic upscale Italian restaurant here in San Antonio. Upon entering the establishment I was immediately ignored and told simply "we are not open yet" by the hostess. No apology, no information as to …

In my Professional opinion, this pizza hut has two kinds of people, the professional, courtious ones that deliver the pizza, the ones on the front lines, in the trenches. Is beef that expensive? even when the customer ask for it twice? D3@$, pordon my french, but s%&#, its cold o…

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.
I haven't been in San Antonio in over 6 years and a buddy of mine agreed to try this place for dinner. When you walk in, the entire area looks like it has not been vacuumed in at least two days. The woman who seated us was rude and quickly told us that our waitress will be with us and walked off to talk to someone near the bar. We ordered the steak and wild mushroom flat bread, and boy was it flat. It fell apart when you tried to pick it up and the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Halfway through my coca-cola, I had the distinct pleasure of having something that was not ice go into my mouth. It looked like part of a nail, but I couldn't be sure. I got passed it and got another drink. This particular restaurant has an outside section to be able to view the RiverWalk and we witnessed over 25 pigeons, ranging from different sizes of height and weight having their way around two tables that had leftover food and plates from previous patrons who had left. It got so bad that another patron tried to get the pigeons to fly away. After 10 minutes of this and myself and others filing this, one of the waiters finally came out and tried to remove the plates. I ordered the New York 12 ounce steak and it was cooked very well. I didn't have any complaints regarding the steak, broccoli and potato. This is honestly not that bad of a place to eat, I will more than likely never eat there again just because of the issues I had when I went.
This was my first and last time to this restaurant. I took my family of 6 to this authentic Italian restaurant with the expectation of having a lovely dinner and was disappointed. The staff (assuming owner and daughter) was rude and disregarded our requests for more bread and wine while the "regulars" were treated with countless bread and drink refills. When they weren't sitting with their "regular" customers they were drawing the three waiters attention to serve their "regular" customers and never looked our way to see if we needed anything. Even when we finally got the attention of the waiters our glasses remained empty. When we finally got our food it was mediocre. Warm not hot. Ok flavor but couldn't really tell since I was thirsty and hungry and annoyed with the horrid service! Then was met at the door by the owner to say "goodbye"! Really! Goodbye and good riddance! I will not be back.
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
Eh, its just ok. I had lunch here today with 5 other coworkers. The food was good but nothing amazing. And the service was terrible. It took a while for our server to greet the table...the place was not busy at the time. We ordered our meals with our drinks on his initial visit since we had plenty of time to look at the menu while waiting. The food took a long time to come out and the server couldn't remember what anyone had and "auctioned" out our food. And some of the orders were incorrect. It was difficult to get water refills. Then when paying it was an extended wait for the payments to be completed. All in all, I likely won't return even though the food wasn't bad.
Pleasantly impressed! I went to lunch here today with a group of coworkers. We had a great time. The food was good, I didn't hear one complaint. The focaccia bread served with the meal was excellent. I had the special today which was Chicken & Eggplant Parmigiana. It was very good. The pasta was cooked perfectly aldente. The chicken was not particularly juicy alone, but any dryness was not noticeable when eaten along with the slice of eggplant served on top of the chicken cutlet. The red sauce was also good. I tasted a coworkers dish of tortellini pesto (also on special), it was good too. I will likely return to this establishment.
I went for lunch. I had the Chicken Parmesan and spaghetti. The Chicken Parmesan was just ok. I could probably buy a frozen one from HEB and be just as good. The sauce on the spaghetti was not good at all. It was like warm ketchup with a little bit of spices added to it.The server was excellent. She was polite and very attentive to us. The service is the only reason why I gave 3 stars instead of 2.The price paid does not equal the quality of the food received. I probably will not go back.
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.
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.
YUMMY food experience. The arugula salad was a perfect starter (big enough for 2) and a wonderful compliment to the wine. Fabulous wine list. The cracklin chicken was melt in your mouth good and bursting with flavor and the orzo pasta was simply scrumptious. The music is loud but creates a vibrant vibe that I enjoyed. The menu is topnotch casual gourmet. Overall pleasurable dining experience that touched on all of my senses. Highly recommend if you want a change of pace!
