Good food, attentive service, and great view.

Unbelievable view, delicious food, and good service. It is pricey but it is a very unique experience so we thought it was worth it.

Go for the view of San Antonio. Stay for the meal. A good wine selection (though sadly no TX wines), nice menu with good food (though smaller portions) salads (slightly over dressed) and desserts. A 7.5 of 10 for an elegant styled restaurant, but no complaints really. It really is about the view and great service here.

We did enjoy the magnificent scenery while the restaurant "revolves" round and round. The sunset views was so amazing too. As regards their food, thumbs up again. However, their services were so much below average. WE NEEDED to ask the waiter to clear the plates off our table.

Brought my wife here for a date night the first time I brought her home to San Antonio to meet the family. We absolutely loved the place. The food was top notch and the views at night were just breath taking. Now that we live nearby, we try to take everyone who comes to visit us to this place.

This was a great place to try. My family went for lunch and did not have to wait long. We had great window seats and it rotated the full 360 degrees for a great view. Lunch prices weren't bad and the burgers and skinny fries were delicious. They were more than accommodating for my 1 1/2 year old who loved... More

Chart House restaurant is a must stop for people that are visiting. Be aware that this is a nice restaurant with high prices. We saw many people leaving after looking at the menu. View the menu online before you go so you know what you are going to pay and what they have to offer. The hummus is made in... More

We came to the Chart House on recommendation of a friend in San Antonio. Great suggestion. We had dinner high up overlooking the brightly lit city of San Antonio. This is definitely a tourist attraction (they take your picture). Yes a bit cheesy but the view is wonderful as the restaurant slowly rotates to get a full viewing of San... More

Visited San Antonio from Houston. Even if the food was complete crap we would have loved our visit here. The atmosphere was so relaxing and the view was incredible. There really is not a bad seat in the house as you can appreciate the view from all parts of the restaurant and the floor rotates 360 degrees very slowly to... More

Great way to enjoy the Tower. We got the Diner Burger which was excellent and plenty big! The restaurant is laid out well so that there is no bad seat in the house. The tables are all on the outside edges, with the kitchen/serving area in center behind a nice rounded wall, which is stationary, while the table area turns.... More

Lovely view and good food. Only two small issues...the elevator and the hostesses. To get to the restaurant, we were fed through a line of folks...the elevators were shared between those going to the observation deck as well as the restaurant. So, there was a wait. Upon arrival and checkin, we were seated away from a window. We quickly passed... More
