We enjoyed a great late night meal here. The patio was open and the ambience was perfect with the lighting. It's on the Riverwalk so enjoy the sights. Our server was amazing! Very attentive and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the chicken bacon mac and cheese! Go and enjoy!

We recently stayed at the Hilton, which this restaurant along with two others is on the bottom floor of. The River's Edge has a great breakfast buffet in the mornings but especially on Sunday. It is one of the few places right on the River Walk that has breakfast. The best experience we had here was when we stopped in... More

We had dinner here over the Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to walk up and get a table outside without waiting. It is really nice to dine by the river, and the service was very good. The food was somewhat of a disappointment though. It is average at best. We had the three course meal, which was very reasonably priced... More

We were there for the holiday parade that goes down the Riverwalk and were told that the only way we could eat there was to pay an outrageous fee to eat a price-fixe menu that was a chicken dish. I didn't come to San Antonio to eat chicken. I has seen there menu on the internet and it looked very... More

I stayed at the Hilton for the week and had daily breakfast with Olga the smiling chef at the Omlette bar who made each morning spectacular, not just with the fresh omelette and fresh ingredients but with a smile and friendly demeanor. The buffet is fresh, varied and worth it! I sampled a half dozen dinner menu items and each... More

Located at the edge of the River Walk, at the bottom of the Hilton, The River's Edge really did a great job for us! We had a decent group that was accommodated easily by the staff. The atmosphere is wonderful, right on the edge of the river. The food really did meet the standards of a diverse group, and the... More

I went around 5:30 pm on Sunday night last weekend to meet two friends for a drink, but we were going to be a complicated group since more people would be joining us for drinks and dinner over the next three hours. By 8:30 there were about 13 of us and we had a great time. Our waitress Melissa P.... More
