“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Food was great I'm craving the fondue & spinach salad just writing this!! View was great service was awesome (our waitress was from Russia very sweet girl) the whole experience is worth having at least once! (I intend to go back soon!) It's pricey though so fill your wallet!

“Sunset from the Tower of the Americas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Super place to have an great meal while absorbing the views of San Antonio, especially at sunset. The staff an amazing job of making the evening special for two of our grandkids as we celebrated both their birthdays. Then it was topped off by meeting the chef, whom had just done "Hell's Kitchen"!

“SCENIC DINING EXPERIENCE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A Delightful surprise...my husband booked us reservations here for our anniversary! Although, after I searched for reviews or suggestions for parking I became wiery! Reading everyone's complaints about cleanliness, elevator issues, subpar food and wait time...However, to my surprise it was fairly easy to find parking just off Bowie street...parking was congested but for 8 dollars and its close proximately to Tower of Americas it was worth it. Despite others reviews, we did'nt have to wait in any long lines and were seated promptly. Even though we couldnt get a window seat we were fine sitting on the upper desk since it was too hot to be sitting that close to the windows on top of the restraunt's lack of ventilation. Other than that, the food was ok..I ordered a filet mignon with crab tater tots,(bizarre for a fine dining menu, do not order) coconut shrip and my husband had their rib eye with aparagus. As the night progressed we sipped on our expensive bottle of cabernet, to help us forget about the subpar over-priced food and enjoyed the the rest of our time, soaking up the magnificent ambiance and view to die for (Love San Antonio)!

“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Well we didn't eat at the restaurant, but we did have a few drinks at the bar! The staff made us feel welcomed and gave us great customer service. The drinks are very good! and for a reasonable price!

“GO FOR THE VIEW! (and the food is great too!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Yes, it's expensive, but you're looking out over the city of San Antonio as you make a full 360-degree revolution while sitting at your table. It's phenomenal! I've been at restaurants like this before over other cities, and it never gets old. Parents -- just a note, please be courteous, this isn't a place for kids. The novelty will wear off for little ones very quickly, and a quiet tranquil dinner will turn boring very quickly. It is a peaceful, quiet, even romantic atmosphere as everyone takes in the beauty of what's below. The food was very very good, especially the clam chowder!!
