We went to the River WalkWe went to the River Walk for the weekend and our friends had been here before. We made a reservsation and asked for seats outside. They seated us with a view of the river. the service was absolutely outstanding! The food was good as well. I was very pleased with them both. Too often in tourist areas the food and service is a let down-- not here. We'll return the next time we're in the area.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood quality was excellentFood quality was excellent across the board. preparations were tasteful if somewhat "safe". They did make us wait for a table but we were a large group and ultimately were seated outdoors at a comfortable table - definitely request an outdoor table since the indoor section looked fairly sterile. Attention was good and not overbearing - don't come if your on a tight schedule or have to make an event - be prepared to relax and enjoy the meal & night air.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMfabulous waiter (Joey) whofabulous waiter (Joey) who was patient with my elderly parents and their indecision and lack of hearing!!
great food though i think $4 upcharge for a few crumbles of goat cheese on some nachos was a bit ridiculous.
but it was good enough that i sent other family members there a few days later!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBe sure to request an outdoor tableOn our first trip to San Antonio, we scouted the best restaurants. This place was recommended while I was shopping at Paris Hatters (where I bought my first ever cow-person boots). Food was excellent, but we were seated inside, upstairs, with no view or particular ambience. When we left we saw the fabulous patio seating and realized we missed the best view on the Riverwalk. Be sure to eat here and wait for outdoor seating.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to Ácenar manyWe've been to Ácenar many times before attending shows at the Majestic or Empire theaters... Great food, typically great service (ours was exceptional this time), lively atmosphere. Great place for dessert and a glass of wine after the show.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth a visitNice view of the river, a little away from the crowds. Not a tourist trap, food was above expectations.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the Cabrito!We had a table on the patio overlooking Riverwalk. The service was pleasant, prompt and efficient. The menu offers a large selection of cocktails, wine and food. Our choices of an oyster appetizer,shrimp and cabrito entrees were all good portion sizes, well prepared and well presented.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a lot of fun. Skirt steakHad a lot of fun.

They seated us immediately and our service was good. Our waiter for attentive and friendly. My children liked their meals. I had the shrimp and grits - very delicious. The atmosphere has a nouveau feel and had nice tables overlooking the river if you wanted to eat oustide - even had heaters when it's a bit chilly. It wasn't too pricey. I would go back, had a nice time.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was exceptionallyThe food was exceptionally well!!!! was mine in my girlfriends first time going there so, we really didn't know what to expect... we are from Dallas...service was good food was very good some of the best guacamole of ever had oh and they actually made it right in front of us can get more fresher than that... definitely recommend getting it. definitely looking forward to coming back again when we are in town..3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect evening on the SanPerfect evening on the San Antonio riverwalk. Table was ready when we arrived and we had a great spot next to the river. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. Acenar is not on the busy part of the river which we liked because you can enjoy your meal without a constant line of tourists walking by looking at your food. Wil definitely return.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and ambiance.I came here with a friend while we were in San Antonio for work. He got the snapper entree and I had the crab tacos. Both were flavorful, nicely presented, and priced very well. If I am ever back in San Antonio I would definitely come here again. The wait staff was very attentive and we were able to be seated promptly outside by the riverwalk. A definite gem!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a busy night, but weIt was a busy night, but we were seated quickly and the service was fantastic. This is one of our favorite restaurants, and the food never disappoints. Our oyster appetizer was out of this world, and my wife both thoroughly enjoyed our pork for me and shrimp for her tacos.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly service, guacamoleFriendly service, guacamole made table side, and diablo shrimp that will set your mouth on fire in a gentle, good kind of way. Try a specialty margarita!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!We ate here while visiting San Antonio for a winter getaway. The food and drinks were great! I had spicy shrimp and they had the perfect blend of spice to make it comfortably hot. Our server was a bit aloof but we had a 2 year old so maybe he was annoyed by this or maybe he was just super busy. But he did let us know that there was a child's size portion of what I wanted so that was helpful. The host was great! Very cheerful and high energy. We enjoyed our experience here!3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location on the RiverwalkGreat location on the Riverwalk for outdoor dining-but be sure to request the patio. Price point here is great. The menu is what I would call "unique tex mex," which was good, but check the menu if you have picky eaters (however they can probably accommodate any requests). Bar area and overall atmosphere is pretty cool and hip. I would dine here again.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
