The breakfast offered a buffet with an omelet bar and was very diverse in the food offerings. The lunches had daily specials and were very good. The service was exceptional.

Ordered room service one night and thought it was kind of expensive. I got an appetizer, entrée, and dessert....cost was over $70. It was the most expensive meal I had in San Antonio, and it was just okay. Nothing special. The person who delivered the room service, Pilar, was very kind and friendly. Now, the breakfast buffet is awesome. Might... More

We arrived at the restaurant for a late dinner. I have allergies and Xavier, our friendly server, took the time to find out what they were and communicated with the chef. My husband loved the prime rib and Ben, the chef, made me the almond chicken fresh to accomodate my allergies. The prix fixe 3 course meal was great value... More

I've ordered room service twice during my stay and had great service and great food both times. Pilar went out of her way to make sure I had everything that I wanted. The wait time was even less than the other restaurants I've been to in the area.

We stayed at the Hilton Palacio del Rio and usually eat outside the hotel where we're staying. Since we got in late that first night we decided to eat right there at the River's Edge and were delighted. We were lucky to have a great server named Chris and he made the evening with his personality, humor and being so... More

I went to the River's Edge Café for the first time and could not decide what I wanted to order. Our server, Xavier was extremely helpful and recommended I try the combination fajita plate. It was amazing!!

Excellent restaurant by the River Walk with good-valued menus and very friendly and efficient service. It's situated on a less crowded part of the river walk, so the ambiance is much quieter, which is not a bad thing. The food is quite good, specially the 3 course fixed price and we also had a hearty breakfast with a well stocked... More

Beautiful setting and excellent service - thanks, Chris G. Food was OK..vegetable medley with the prime rib was outstanding. Breakfast buffet was plentiful, varied, and tasty. Again the service was exceptional.

I am a faithful Trip Advisor user & reviewer & I'm truly stunned @ all the great reviews for this place. I will say the staff is very friendly but the food is completely mediocre. We stayed @ the Hilton this weekend to celebrate my Mom's 72nd birthday. We decided to dine close & eat in the hotel restaurant since... More

Went into River's Edge on the Riverwalk specifically because my husband wanted prime rib and it was on the menu. We were disappointed to learn they had run out and decided to try elsewhere. We hadn't gotten past the front hostess station when our waiter Xavier came running out to tell us the chef had one ready to serve. Then... More
