“Breakfast package”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Breakfast was great, but pricey so try and get a package deal. Handmade mini puff pastries one day, empanadas another, granola mixed in-house, just a good variety.

“Great food and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The Oro restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is always excellent and you can valet park, then walk to the Majestic Theatre for a show - much easier than the central parking garages. The service at Oro is also always excellent and the thing we love the most - it is QUIET and you can actually eat, enjoy your meal, and hear each other talk.

“Wine Dinners at ORO at the Emily Morgan Hotel with Chef Chris Cook”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

My Name is Deanna Eames and I am a National Sales Rep for Willamette Valley Vineyards. I have had the Honor and privilege to host two dinners with Chef Chris Cook and the amazing staff at ORO. This hands down is one of my all time favorite Dinners I do. Every course is paired beautifully using local flavors, a farm to fork mentality and mind blowing presentations. Not only are you surrounded by a beautiful setting inside but looking out the window you stare straight at a huge part of our countries history!

I also stayed the week at the Emily Morgan Hotel and stay in a gorgeous room that was very reasonably priced. Truth be told the food at Oro is so good that I rarely ate anywhere else. From reception of the staff to the "Hello Mrs Eames" Every night when I returned made me feel a little closer to home out on the road.

If you are planning a trip to San Antonio I STRONGLY suggest checking out ORO and the Emily Morgan Hotel. You will love it!
Thank you Chef Chris and Staff for always making me feel at home and so welcome!

“Great hotel breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

One of the best hotel breakfast buffets that I have seen in a while. Great choices and the lox and bagels are a welcome touch! Will return here again for certain.

“Nice Atmosphere and Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I decided to try the Oro rather than the hectic and sometimes over-priced Riverwalk restaurants. It is located in the new Doubletree Hotel, the Emily Morgan. They have a full menu and also very complete bar with a good happy hour selection of food and drinks. I had a very good steak, cooked perfectly, so was very satisfied. The house wine, which was a bargain as it was happy hour, was decent. If you are arriving late into San Antonio and don't want to venture onto the Riverwalk the Oro is a good choice. hey are also open for lunch and only a block from the Alamao.
