This restaurant was near out hotel and recommended by one of the staff. He called and placed a reservation for us (you need one). We explained we only had very casual clothing with us and he said it was fine. Excellent meal, excellent service, definitely expensive but well worth it. Has a very "old school, fine dining" feel to it.... More

My husband and I rarely treat ourselves to a meal of this caliber. Everything was perfect. The complimentary appetizer (candied jalapeños, cream cheese and toast) was followed by a bread basked. We ordered the fried coconut shrimp followed by a beautiful 24 oz bone in ribeye. We shared the steak and sides, potatoes au gratin and asparagus. We were so... More

This was our 4th visit to Bohanans. Group of 4. Our past experiences here have been 5 star on all fronts....service, food, ambience, value and presentation. However, this one had a major disappointment that I hope was just a fluke. I ordered a $100 steak....now when anyone orders a $100 steak, it better be over the top special. Not so... More

I expected to leave Bohanan's and turn to my wife and tell her about how it was the best steak I've ever had, and although the place is nice and the food is good, the service let it down. The menu is extensive and they even have a meat trolley with cuts that aren't on the menu. I was immediately... More

We drove in from Austin to dine at Bohanan's one of our nieces invited us to have dinner here with her and her husband. This is a top restaurant in San Antonio and I see why, the service was great, from the moment you walk in to the time you are seated. The steaks are awesome the seafood is also.... More

One of the bests steaks I've ever had. AS is typical with high end steak houses, it was a bit pricey but not over the top. Dessert was awesome too! Atmosphere is very nice except there was one woman in a group near us that obviously has no clue that other people exist - she was laughing VERY loudly throughout... More

Bohanan's offers one of the finest steaks in the entire state, with service to match--it's as simple as that. This is not an inexpensive place to dine, so be prepared to shell out some big bucks, but you'll definitely get your money's worth.

This is a superb restaurant. It has two floors with the primary restaurant area on the second level while the cocktail bar areas are on the first level. I had one of the best steaks of my life and most expensive meals of my life there. It may be a once in a lifetime experience, but it was well worth... More

I don't even know where to start with this exceptional restaurant. From the staff at the bar, to the hostess and then the icing on the cake, the wait staff. The atmosphere is amazing , especially in the Houston room over looking Houston Street. The experience starts with white table cloths, linen napkins and a beverage of your choice. Next... More

I chose Bohanan's based on a review from Find Me Gluten-Free and it is a great restaurant. The food was well presented and the staff was attentive. The dining room was for the most part quiet, but because the World Cup was playing in the bar/reception area, there was some noise and some staff were distracted by it.
