This was an exceptional dining experience on the San Antonio Riverwalk (where most dining establishments sling out a lot of crap for the tourist masses). Both indoor and outdoor dining are available. We sat outside, at a six-top under a gazebo. The weather was perfect...More

The steaks were cooked just right. The drinks were made well. The service was outstanding. This is a great choice if you are on the Riverwalk.

We had a function here. The rooms were intimate so a bit noisy with about 30 people. Excellent food and service. Located on The Riverwalk.

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.
