Melissa P made this an amazing experience. She took the time to ask about my day and tell me about the riverwalk. She helped me order my sandwich & sides. She ensured I was happy with what I ordered. I will definitely come here again . Thanks Melissa P for great customer service & with a smile. Nicole M

Wow wow WOW!! We spent one week in San Antonio and came back to River's Edge again and again! Professional attentive servers like Julian, Hector, Antonio and Anthony made each visit very special. The food is artfully prepared to perfection. Each dish we ate - from the gorgeous greens and AMAZING home made 1000 island salad dressing in the side... More

Had an evening meal on a June evening whilst on business in San Antonio. I was travelling by myself, and was made really welcome and seated at a table outside. A great atmosphere (largely from the location), and there was so much food! The food was really good, and there was a reasonable range of local beers with some good... More

We totally enjoyed this delicious meal on the San Antonio River walk. The service was attentive and excellent. We had the nachos for an appetizer which were so filling, we decided to share the entree, which was chicken and grits. Soooooo good! The house margaritas were a deal during Happy Hour and, while not the best I've ever had, perfectly... More

Had a great breakfast with my wife there and we had a choice of ordering off the menu, which we did, or choosing the buffet. Both of our meals were excellently prepared and arrived piping hot. The food portions were just right and ample for any appetite. Our server, Rosa, was the best! Very engaging helpful and definietely a reason... More

Have been spending a lot of time in San Antonio on business. The Rivers edge is fantastic with service and ease of location in the Hilton. Ms. Sheila is exceptional and seems to always be there. Thank you Ms. Sheila for taking care of us as if we were your own family.

we've passed this location numerous times (in part to the fact it looks like a hotel restaurant) but not having visited in awhile we decided to try it.. While the staff was very kind and pleasant the food lacked it's appeal. Fajitas were bland of course we realized we weren't in a mexican restaurant but still..

From the time you are seated, you feel right at home. Sheila remembers your name, what you like to drink and is attentive to all your needs. Such a sweetheart and an awesome server, indeed!

Ms Sheila and Norma made us feel welcome and treated us like family. Blew us away with outstanding customer service. They went out of their way to surprise our family at every turn in our hotel. Thanks for everything! We will be back! Your friends, The Hinojos Brothers
