A friend and I were looking for a place to lunch while we were in San Antonio for a conference. We happened upon the Houston Street Bistro and decided to check out the menu. A friendly waitress invited us in and we decided to try the special of the day - Chicken Parmesan. It was really good and the price... More

This was the second time I visited this place. The first time was a disaster. My girlfriend convinced me to try this place again before we wen to see the Maxwell Concert. The waiter was very attentive his name was Steven L. He did a great time of recommending a Moscato for my girlfriend. We also split a chips and... More

At only blocks away from the Riverwalk, this place cannot be beaten. Do not be fooled by the name, this isn't some sandwich shop or deli. High quality food in a high class environment at an amazing price, perfect for a date night or exploring downtown San Antonio. Tonight my waiter was Terrance and he is one of the best... More

Came here with my wife before we did the sister Grimm's ghost tour and it was amazing. Terrance was our waiter and he did an outstanding job on keeping our glasses full and making sure we had a great time. It's a little off the beaten path but is next to the Majestic Theatre and Houston st. Garage.

Great patio seating on the sidewalk of Houston Strieet. We have visited several times and always found the lunch specials to be great and the service excellent.

This is a great place to have a really good meal at very reasonable prices. They will always make sure that you are served in time to always make the curtain call at the Majestic Theater.

The Houston Street Bistro is conveniently located right in the theater district and on nights that shows are scheduled be sure to make an advanced reservation because the place is hopping! Right after the theater crowd it thins out quickly to a non-existent clientele. Lunch is packed as well as they offer good portions at a fair price and may... More

The food is very good and beautifully presented. The service is wonderful and professional. They have a pre-theater special that will allow time to have a very good dinner and still make the show. It is right next door to the Majestic. I have had several different meals here and never been disappointed.
