I am so disappointed that my 53rd birthday dinner did not happen at La Frite. Being of Dutch and Belgian descent I was so looking forward to remembering the food of my childhood, sharing it with my fiancé and reminiscing about my Mom and Oma....More

Skip the antipasto, three pieces of jerky, a tad of cheese and a frozen solid artichoke. Inedible. They left us out front in the cold until 6:00 on the nose despite a table of dinners already started. They were out of my wine, didn’t know...More

Never disappoints!! Mussels with butter and garlic very tasty. Salad with pear and Gorgonzola light. It’s big enough to share. The frites with dipping sauces very tasty. The chicken and mushroom crepe excellent. Top off the night with the creme brûlée. Wine selection adequate.

Very refreshing to have such a jewel in San Antonio, where most food is either Mexican or contemporary American. Mussels are very tasty and our favorite entree is Hanger steak. Wine selection is very good, mostly French. The decor is French bistro with white cotton...More

Perfect place for a laidback date night with a variety of great mussels and my favorite - steak tartar. The fries are great too, as is the beer selection. They often have Tripel Karmeliet on draft, the best beer in the world.

There is an oasis to the sea of TexMex and steakhouses in San Antonio. This was my second visit in less than a month. I had the duck breast (Maigret du Canard) the first time around and was taken away by the sheer quality of...More

The food at this place is very good. I have been a long time customer for this reason. However, their customer service today was aweful and the owners son's reaction to my complain was completely unacceptable. The waitress was new and clearly inexperienced. I wanted...More
