Reserved a table through OpenTable. We were celebrating our anniversary and went through all the reviews from every site and found that Kirby's was most consistent with great reviews. When my husband and I arrived we were greeted by everyone from valet to the hostess. The ambience is great for intimate encounters. Our waitress, Dominique, was awesome! She recommended things, had great people skills, and was professional the entire meal. The manager came by once and made sure our experience was pleasurable. We never went without water or a beverage because they were just on top of it. The food makes you want to spend your entire check there. It is hands down some of the best quality tasting food I have had in sometime. I ordered the shrimp scampi pasta with crab on top and my husband had the redfish. Both meals were superb.

Since we were celebrating our anniversary we mentioned it to the hostess as we arrived. Without us mentioning it again the waitress said she knew and by the end of the meal we were having a dessert on them with Happy Anniversary written on it. It made for a great memory and I'm so please with the experience.

My only complaint is that when we arrived we sat at the bar for a while (that was our choice, even though our table was ready). My husband ordered a double shot of Hennessey and coke and I had a girlie drink. When we got the bill for those two items it was $46.00. I was bewildered. The bartender decided upon himself to use the top shelf VSOP as oppose to something that does not cost as much without informing us it would be so expensive. I thought that was a bit deceptive as my drink was only $12.00. And our bill for the meal itself was $98.00 aside from the bar tab. That almost ruined our evening but I was hungry and hopeful that the remainder of the evening would be representative of the reviews I read, and it was.

I will return again but I will ensure that I know the price of everything before I order.

Friends and my spouse visited Kirby's yesterday and were impressed with the food and service. I had a filet that was cooked just the way I like it and my husband had salmon that were perfect! The service was great and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. Will go back for a special occasion as the prices are a tad expensive. A glass of wine was $12.

It took an hour for my wife and I to decide which steakhouse we would try the last night of our trip. Boy did we make the right decision. The service was incredible but the food was even better.

My wife had a filet and I tried one of the chef specials, the Mesquite rib eye. My steak was cooked perfectly and the flavor was unbelievable. The mesquite rib eye flavor was unlike anything I have ever tasted. We also had a couple salads and the mashed potatoes and everything was perfect.

Will definitely be back here when we come back to San Antonio.

My husband took my parents and us. We had a great time. The beef was like butter, melting in our mouth! My parents said they did a little something special the the bacon wrapped around the shrimp. My mahi fish was cooked to perfection. And our dessert...well judge for yourself.

Hubs and I enjoyed date nite @ Kirby's. We are repeaters, so we were familiar with the restaurant decor, which I think is perfect for a romantic evening dinner. Great food drinks and great service- as expected at Kirbys!
