Went there for my birthday. What a view of the city up in the Tower. We were fortunate to have Ernesto as our waiter. Was very gracious and was always there when we needed him without being over bearing. Food was cook perfect. If you go ask for Ernesto to wait on you.

We stopped in for lunch, there wasn't anyone in the lobby, but we were told it would be a 20 minute wait - it ended up being a 35 minute wait, once we were seated it took 20 minutes for the server to come to the table. I asked for hot tea and he said he would bring me a... More

Our hotel concierge had arranged for a VIP dinner here, which we enjoyed immensely. The revolving restaurant gives you a birds-eye view of the city. Our reservations were at 9pm, so we weren't able to "see" much of the city other than the lights, but it was nice. Food and service were outstanding! Definitely a great experience we would love...

Personally, I had this experience to compare with Stratosphere so it sets a bar. Had a reservation that we still had to "wait" for. Without an offer of going to the bar upstairs. Then upon sitting it took 11 min for service and we got cocktails before water. Lobster Bisque was to die for - could have ended there. I... More

Every time we come to San Antonio we go to the Towers of America and the Chart House bar to see the view and enjoy happy hour drinks and food. They have changed the furnishings so the chairs sit up higher to enjoy the view. Don't pay for the observation deck; just go up to the bar for a drink... More

This is a very fun (& nice) place to eat. The food and service were both very good, however do not go unless you have ample amount of time, as they get in no rush. Overall, I would recommend, especially if you're visiting, the views alone are worth it.

This is great food, great views of the city. Very romantic at dinner and sunsets. The is lit up and beautiful at night. On the high side but worth it. They have an observation deck that is good for those that don't have a fear of heights. Not good on windy days either. Enjoy a memorable dinner!

Very good service and a variety of food! The views were the best of the city. Took about 90 min. to rotate all around the city but you don't feel it moving. We went at dinner time so got to see the sunset and the view of the city at night. Def. recommend reservations but still had a wait to... More

Hosted a company dinner here. Food and services were outstanding. View is amazing, but the service was kinda slow. Everyone enjoyed being there, so, it didn't hurt anything, and we were a fairly large group (15), and everything was served hot to everyone at the same time. That took some planning. I will definitely go again, but probably with a... More

We went in the evening specifically to not only try the food, but enjoy the sunset. Based on a few of the less than stellar reviews, I was worried about the experience at such an expensive place. While it was expensive, everything was top notch. Our waiter James, was excellent -very friendly, prompt and professional. The drinks were very good... More
