Ate here the last night of our stay in San Antonio. Unfortunately it rained so we had to eat indoors. The food was good. We had the price fix three course meal and it was very tasty. Server was fine, but not personable. Interesting thing about most of the restaurants on the riverwalk. When one person finishes their meal they... More

The staff was very friendly and always exceeded our expectations! The food was always hot, tasty, and large servings. When you go there, ask for Benny C., because he always took very good care of us!

I stayed at the Hilton Palacio del Rio hotel that includes this restaurant. I really enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast buffet at an outside table along the river.

Went because of proximity to hotel and good ratings. ...glad we did. Our waiter was Benny and he was so nice and informative. Made some great choices and went with calamari and pork belly grill cheese. Calamari was ok but I can't say enough about the grill cheese. Outstanding and Fires a perfect compliment. Can't wait to come back.

We try a different restaurant every time we are on the River Walk. (And have liked every one we visited - there are so many good food choices.) Due to a rain storm, we dashed into the River's Edge to get out of the rain. We stayed to eat and were happy with our choices of salads and both would... More

Our waiter, Fransico, was working his 2nd day and you would never have known it! He was so friendly and accommodating and helpful. He was engaging and made our dinner memorable. The food was great, too.

If you do not have a breakfast voucher, then breakfast buffet is $$ but very good and fresh.The outdoor seating was perfect for an early breakfast and one of the best places to people watch at night. We had Benny as a server... More
