We were greeted at the entrance by the restaurant manager, and from then on he made sure all was perfect. We ate two breakfasts and a dinner at the restaurant. The breakfast quesadia was different for me, it tasted great, and was a large portion. The dinner also was well worth it, with the steak prepared as requested. And the Texas waffle is a great way to start the day. The prices were very reasonable, especially for downtown in a major metropolitan area. The service was fantastic! It has always seemed to me that when the manager is actively participating in the operation, things go well, and that seemed to be the key to the success of the restaurant. If you are downtown in San Antonio, stop by. It is across the street from the Alamo at the Hotel Indigo.

We had breakfast and afternoon tapas before dinner at this bistro. The breakfast was excellent, my waffles even had the shape of texas and the presentation was absolutely beautiful. Before dinner, since we were so close to the Riverwalk, we decided to have tapas and wine here and we amazed at how good the tapas were. Excellent food, great price, excellent service.

Tim, the bartender was very friendly and helpful. He knew and shared some of the history of the Alamo and made great drinks. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent place to stop and grab a bite. We had the same experience others have noted in reviews, once you meet Tim and Cruze you feel like you knew them all your life. It's not just someone serving you, they make you feel like family. Welcoming you in, filling you in on the history of the Hotel. We were there during Fiesta, they had an outdoor table set-up serving the parade crowd in addition to keeping the restaurant served . These guys put a lot effort into making this a quality location.
