Description: Classic, Fine Dining, Strictly Local All perishable products from within a 150 mile radius. Everything made by hand as it was done in 1850, without electric machines. Everything made by the classic methods, using only preparations that existed in San Antonio in 1850. We are the reflection of Old Texas in a graceful, romantic setting by the river.

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant, in a converted older mansion right on the Riverwalk. The food is NOT Mexican (nice change for San Antonio), but the it IS locally-sourced and creative. We went for the 5-course tasting menu, (maybe a bit of a misnomer, most tasting menus don't include the sorbet as an actual course and would call it a four-course dinner) with wine pairings and we enjoyed everything.
The timing was just right and the bill for two came to a reasonable $200.

This was the 2nd time we have visited Restaurant Gwendolyn. I was afraid that I was too excited and would be let down - not a chance! They exceeded my expectations again. We selected the 5 course menu with the wine pairing. The flavors are amazing and you are treated to combinations of food you would never imagine and they are wonderful! You will not find food like this anywhere else in San Antonio - a must visit for visitors and locals.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident. What a find! Interesting dishes, very tasty. We had the 3-course dinner, with a cheese plate to start. Wine pairing was excellent. We will return anytime we are in San Antonio.

Amazing food, exceptional wine paring, and superb service. Probably the best meal we have had in San Antonio and we have lived here for 3 years. We will be back!
