Nice place for lunch!

Nice place to eat for lunch. Good variety of food including sandwiches, soups and salads. Different specials each day, and I have never had anything that wasn't easy. Reasonably priced. Worth giving a try.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have never had an unpleasant experience. The manager, Tracey, makes sure that everyone feels welcome and the wait staff is very attentive.

We took our daughter to lunch here recently and we were terribly disappointed that such a fine restaurant has fallen so far. We loved this place in the early '90s. Since then, however, it seems to have gotten progressively worse. This last meal was the last straw; we will not be back. The Mediterranean sampler appetizer, which had been a... More

We had a Valentine's Day dinner reservation in the first seating of the evening. I get that it was a special holiday event and the idea was to maximize seating, but the tables were crammed in and we felt cramped and a bit claustrophobic. Also...and this is a picky thing, but the vinyl upholstered chairs we were seated in were... More

Very nice evening with a two piece combo of piano and bass playing smooth jazz. The "almond snapper" was over a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and the "Ocean Trio" consisted of shrimp stuffed with crab and lobster. Both were excellent and highly recommended.

Great hidden restaurant in San Antonio... we went with a group from work - needed a break to celebrate a successful hard day working on our balanced scorecard and strategy. The atmosphere was good the food even better. Get the Lamb Tagine! it was excellent. well presented in a Tagine (a Berber covered oven dish) and even better tasting. Wine... More

Went for lunch with a few coworkers, and this place is excellent. Great food and atmosphere. It was somewhat busy as our waiter had a hard time keeping up, luckily he had backup and another waitress picked up the slack. Great teamwork. Overall great food ans experience will return.

Very nice, not chain, upscale restaurant. Mediterranean cuisine and a four piece jazz band.on Friday and Saturday nights. Two of us shared a spinach & artichoke appetizer dip which was still almost too much. An almond crusted snapper with shrimp with spicy flavoring was outstanding. The herb encrusted pork tenderloin with bordellaise sauce, asparagus and potatoes had an excellent flavor... More

Enjoyed dinner with our group at this bistro. We had fish which was well prepared. The music started right before we left, and it was very nice jazz fusion. Not too loud for the space.

We are from out of town and were visiting the Japanese Tea Garden. The hunger pangs hit and we had no idea where to go for lunch. I arbitrarily searched for an Italian restaurant in the area, and it led to a small plaza on Boardwalk. We never did find the Italian restaurant however, we found Boardwalk Bistro. There was...
