“Great foodie restaurant on the Riverwalk”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Boudro's was a great find amidst the sea of cheesy, touristy restaurants that line the Riverwalk. The food was delicious and the menu was interesting and different. The service was top notch and the atmosphere was very lively and had a French bistro vibe.

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Love the atmosphere, ate right on the river, service was outstanding, and the food was amazing. Don't miss ordering the guacamole made table side, warm chips, and the prickly pear margaritas. Had lunch here, went back in the evening for dessert. Easily of one of our best river walk experiences.

“Solid and classy”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Sat outside at a table a few feet from the river. We had the famed frozen prickly pear margaritas and they really were very good. We also had the guacamole which was excellent; what made it unique is that our server prepared it slightly chunky, not like pulverized avocado at many restaurants, and they also cut and squeeze fresh lime and orange juice in it. This was delicious and it's definitely how we'll make guacamole from now on. Our dinners were very good too: tender pork loin and the fish of the day. Both were excellent and plentiful. As busy as the Riverwalk can get, I'd imagine this place gets crazy busy during the summer and this was about 7:30 on a Tuesday night in early September. The inside dining room is very nice but very loud. This was an excellent choice amongst the touristy restaurants that surround Boudro's.

“2nd Verse - UNLIKE the first.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

So I got to experience Boudro's a few years' ago, and it was my favorite part of San Antonio. The Guac - amazing, the mojito - fantastic, the atmosphere - unbeatable.

This trip I was travelling with my company, and instead of being at the main restaurant, we were taken around the river and through the woods to another "secret" location where they must hold large group functions. Somehow the guac (while good) lost it's charm when I wasn't seated outside on the river, but was instead in a courtyard someone along the main drag near the Alamo. The staff was great, particulary (Matt?) one of the gentlemen working the table making guac like a machine (a special thanks for making some adjustments based on allergies).

I would say that if you're part of a small group and are diniing at the main location - you'll love it. If you're part of a group just note that you will not have the same feeling or experience.

“Dinner Cruise”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Make reservations in advance for the dinner cruise. It was lovely. Boudro's is located in a very busy section of the riverwalk and the restaurant itself was packed with diners!! Knowing that we were going to dine onboard instead of in the chaos of the restaurant was definitely worth it. The food was delicious. There is a full bar ready to serve as you board. Appetizers were served including chips and guacamole. The boat captain gives a narration of the sights as you skim down the river. There were about 3 turns through the river and back to the restaurant. The first tour was while we enjoyed appetizers and got to know our dining companions. We returned to the restaurant to pick up the hot entrees and went out the second time. Entrees were cleared and ice cream dessert was brought onboard after which we made a third tour. It really was fun and a great way to spend the evening.
