Francisco, a wonderful staff person!

I was in San Antonio for a conference and found River's Edge the first night. I was fortunate to have Francisco for my server. Friendly, professional and attentive. Thank you for a great dinning experience. It was the best while I was in your city.

During my visit to San Antonio for the Fiesta my boyfriend and I were walking the crowded riverwalk and decided to stop at this busy cafe as opposed to the others. I thought we were going to be disappointed at first as the original person who asked to help us seemed too busy to answer questions. Moments later Charles B.... More

Enjoyed lunch at The River's Edge Cafe. Was a touch on the cool side so we sat inside, but the patio area looked like fun in warmer weather. Food was good, enjoyed the chips and guacamole appetizer. Service was average. Waitress was not overly attentive and it was hard to get drink refills etc. Prices were average.

Terrific location on riverwalk; great for a drink & people watching. Entree salads are average. Not a big selection of beers but they do have 5 or 6 local brews.

Xavier was our server on a late Saturday afternoon during Easter weekend 2015. No food; just sat on the patio and had a few margaritas. Service was prompt and steady. Perfect afternoon. We did NO order food; so cannot attest to that. Margaritas were perfect ... just the right amount of the good stuff. Definitely will return.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a stay at the Hilton Palacio and enjoyed a fantastic meal at the River's Edge Cafe. Excellent food and even better service! Thanks to Melissa P. for the recommendations and the "first class" service.

If you want to be on the River walk and don't want to wait for 1.5-2 hours on the weekend, try the Rivers Edge. It is on the ground level of the Hilton and the food and service was very good. Great location and you won't be disappointed.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first day and we ended up there for cocktails and snacks every evening! Xavier was an awesome server- he even helped us play a trick on my brother in law! We had a blast! There was a competition for who made the best lemon drop martini- ask for one from Francisco and one... More
