This is our "go to" restaurant for a nice romantic dinner with excellent food and drinks overlooking the Riverwalk in a quiet section. The food was perfect as was the wait staff!!

Absolutely charming, reminiscent of small European restaurants. We were seated outside with a view of the Riverwalk. Intimate atmosphere, excellent food and service. Hands down our favorite in San Antonio.

As the others have said, yes. It is terraced up the hill from the Riverwalk. Strongly suggest reservations as far in advance as possible if you want to sit outside with the best view.
