This is certainly one of the best meals that I have ever had. The restaurant is conveniently located in downtown San Antonio (near the River Walk). It is stunningly beautiful inside. We were fortunate and were seated immediately. One of the things I noticed was that while some people were dressed up, there were also plenty of people in jeans with cowboy boots. This is an upscale, but not snobby restaurant.
The staff is incredibly well trained. Since it was for me, the first time in the restaurant, he explained how the meal was served. You basically, enjoy the unusual array of salads, soup, and bread, buffet style. This is not the typical restaurant salad-bar. It was gourmet and delicious. Go light on the portions, because the show-case is the main course.
A troupe of carvers than go from table to table offering you a selection of various meats and chicken which they carve to your specification (i.e., rare, medium, etc). They only come and make their offering when the small medallion you have next to your plate is turned to the green side. When it is turned to the red side, they do not disturb you.
This is a pricey restaurant. However, they offer a generous military discount. The desserts run the bill up quickly, but they are also incredibly good. This is certainly something I would do again.
