Great service, great setting, sub-par prime rib

We stopped by around 11 pm after the Alamo Bowl, still smarting from Oregon's epic collapse. The restaurant was full, the staff was super friendly (and especially our server Arquisha, she was truly outstanding), but the prime rib was really pretty poor.

The staff was very friendly, I believe they're going through renovations so the place was pretty empty. I did not enjoy my meal very much.

The appetizers and meals were great. The best part of this experience was Kelsey our waitress. She was a superstar. As I was seated I noticed that our server had a table of at least 14 guests. I was concerned that we were going to have a long wait. Wow was I wrong! Kelsey exceeded my expectations. She was phenomenal.... More

We stopped at the restaurant late after the Alamo Bowl. Our server Arquisha was outstanding! Best waitress I have encountered. The service was excellent. I wish I could give more than 5 stars for her service. The food was great as well - wonderful experience. Since it was after the Alamo bowl, it was busy -but the staff was super... More

Excellent food and "adult beverages." This super great restaurant also has the most attentive and wonderful wait staff, servers and bar tenders. We've been there in great weather, and also the most inclement weather. Their breakfast buffet is totally beyond awesome!

We got back to the Hotel late, it was just after 11:pm we went down to the restaurant and he said they were closed but still had people in there so he checked with the mgr and they said we could go ahead and order. We tried to order simple things so it would not keep them too long since... More

The tacos were tasty but fell apart when picked up so had to eat with a fork. The rice tasted like cardboard warmed up. The beans were tasty also. Noisy indoors but restaurant was agreeable to turning down the music. Right by the Riverwalk if you choose seating outdoors.

What a great meal and experience. Thank you Julian J, if not for you we would have left earlier. My one year old granddaughter found her voice, and even though we were in the patio area along the Riverwalk, certain people were not understanding. You saved the dinner. Food was great, but the experience was memorable.

This restaurant is part of the hilton on the riverwalk, apparently. So we were told. But, the menu is varied enough and has some fun options too. Great for snacks and drinks in the evening, which is why we stopped in. It wasn't terribly busy, but the service was excellent and the view is lovely. In particular the hostess, Enreguita,... More
