Closed and not reopening. It used to be a beautiful setting with very good food, but recent remodeling of the hotel did not include Francesca's.

My husband and I went for romantic dinner. Beautiful view and sunset. Food was excellent. Service was very good as we expecting and what are you paying for ;). Highly recommend for special occasions.

Everything - from the service, view, food, atmosphere, timing - was impeccable. Patrick and Karl were outstanding, professional, and friendly. My wife had the filet and I had the flounder. Both were out of this world, as were the truffle Mac n cheese and, of all things, the broccoli. One of the best meals I've ever had, and they brought... More

Good food, excellent service, tasty wine-list! The views are WOW! They will be closing their doors permanently at the end of this year (2014), so go before they close! (Hotel is making upgrades all over the property - not just to Francesca's)

We went twice in one weekend stay in San Antonio because it was THAT good. The first night was the Valentine's Day special - so the menu was pre-set, and came with wine pairings.

Beautiful views. We sat next to the windows, we ordered and then took our glasses of wine out on the balcony for sunset. Beautiful. The tag-team service was good, not at all over-done as it can be. The in-house Sommlier knows his stuff and picked a great wine list. Our food was delicious. Great experience overall.

This out of town resort could much more to justify the fame it holds. The food is below any level I have seen in the area the Caesar salads was very tired.the chef suggestion of fresh wild Atlantic salmon to be served rare was not eatable. I don't have to continue to be avoided.

Beautiful restaurant but food not great. The resort is so fantastic but Fracesca's is disappointing. Wait staff was wonderful but in addition to food being mediocre it took forever to get our meal.
