    I ordered my 90 dollar steak medium rare. It arrived charred, well done and dry. Definitely not a high quality steak house.

    Food was good, but ambiance was terrible. We had two tables of crying babies and loud toddlers. Not the romantic dinner we were hoping for. We expressed our concern to the manager suggesting they seat parties with small children together in a more secluded room. Hopefully, we'll have better luck next time.

    This was one of many visits to Bob's, but this time was a little disappointing. Althoiugh the management was still great, the quality of my steak was not has good has it has been in the past. Still a great place with excellent food. It just seems to be dropping in having an overall eating experience for price being paid. I just did not fell it was the " exceptional " restaurant I have visited in the past.

    We have been to Bob's several times and they never disappoint. Steaks are always great, and cooked just as ordered, and the sides are generously portioned and always wonderful. We really loved the addition of the daily special list and have tried several of them. Carpaccio was great, but if you want a special treat order the tenderloin chili appetizer. Probably the best chili I've ever had. It's a bit spicy, but this is Chili, and you are in Texas!!

    I'd recommend this resturant for business meetings. The noise level allowed for uninhibited conversation and the food was very good. The waitress was attentive, but asked to many times about removing the pickles from the table. We'd already expressed an interest in trying them. Beyond that, we had a wonderful experience.

    Pleasant Surprise----A Restaurant that lives up to its billing-- My wife and I were shopping in the Rim development for a new grand daughter....I checked in on OpenTable and searched for reservations within two miles...Bobs popped up and I set my reservation for 7:15...We arrived on time...no wait and taken direct to our table.... OUTSTANDING service, EXCELLENT food, AWESOME menu, DELICIOUS wine ...what else can you ask for? It is a Chop House...so expect excellent steaks, fillets, Pork CHOPS...and excellent sides...No disappointments here...full meal entrees range in price from $20 to $55+

    My husband and I enjoy Bob's very much. We had an early dinner before going to the OneRepublic concert. Our server was the same server the last time we visited Bob's for my birthday. Once again, Andrew out did himself. He is excellent and so very friendly. And like always the food is oh so very good. We will definitely be back. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

    She had the Restaurant Week menu: Choice of salad (tossed or Caesar), Filet Mignon/Salmon/Pork Chop, Carrot/Chocolate Cake. It was a great deal at $35, and all items were outstanding. As for me: I chose the Bone In Ribeye, with a Wedge (before) and a Brownie (after), and it was all awesome. We appreciate the fact that Bob's nailed the food, but also the friendly, attentive service - everyone from the valet (complimentary), bus boys, servers, and managers (we met Patrick, the GM) all made us feel special and welcome. Bob's rocks!

    San Antonio has many good steak houses but this is one that serves side dish with your steak. We had a great time and everything was cooked perfect! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly as well. Parking is terrible & we went on a Thursday night. Give yourself time to park or wait for the complimentary valet.

    wanted to check out this restaurant on the recommendation of a few friends, wasn't disappointed! for the restaurant week prix fixe menu, $35 brought you a crisp salad, filet mignon/broiled salmon/porkchop with your choice of a side, and chocolate cake or carrot cake for dessert. Andy, our server, was very gracious, kind, attentive, especially with 2 very young children in tow. not all servers show the same level of respect to diners with children. Andy blew me away with how friendly he was to us and to the kids. Excellent restaurant, SUPERB service. i would definitely come back because of the service alone.

    The steak, as usual, was perfect. The flavor is incredible...ridiculously good! The service was great as well...never had to wait for anything, water stayed filled and our server, Andy, checked on us often! Do not pass up the flash fried lobster appetizer...it is a must have! Love going to Bob's! And, since it was during Restaurant Week...the price was a beautiful thing! :)

    Bob's was our choice for my girlfriend's birthday dinner and it could not have been more perfect. The service was highly attentive without being bothersome. The fried lobster appetizer is a choice that needs to remain on the menu forever. The pickles in a jar on the table is interesting in such a high end restaurant, but I could not stop eating them they were so good. Our party of 4 all had steaks while I had a side of bacon-wrapped shrimp. The bacon was a little too well done, but the shrimp was moist and the taste left me wanting another. The steaks were perfectly prepared. Bob's will be on our "gotta go back there!" list for a long time to come.

    We went to Bob's to try it out for San Antonio's Culinaria Restaurant Week. They had a prix fixe menu which included salad (tossed or Caesar), a choice of a 6 oz. filet mignon, pork chop or fish for an entrée, with glazed carrot and choice of potatoes for sides, and choice of chocolate cake or carrot cake for dessert. They also had their wonderful pickled cucumbers sitting on the table. We had the steak, and it was cooked perfectly and very tasty, the glazed carrot was very tangy, and the smashed potatoes were great. The homemade vinaigrette house dressing on the salad was nice. The sourdough bread accompanying the meal was warm and flavorful. The chocolate cake was a great ending. Martinis were also good. Will definitely return.

    The food was really great. I especially liked the steak, carrot and potato side. I really appreciated the very extensive wine list with choices for all budgets. The service was great with several attendants making sure the table had refills on drinks as needed and food coming out promptly. I will definitely be trying out Bob's again. The only strange thing was the location and parking. It's in the middle of a not too fancy strip mall and they didn't have enough parking, we actually had to park at a nearby hotel and walk through some bushes in an area without sidewalks. Strange for such an upscale place.

    The entire experience was wonderful. Our server Andy was attentive without being hovering, very knowledgable of the food & extensive wine offerings, and very personable. General Manager Partick was present, friendly and genuinely interested in our experience. He takes great pride in his restaurant, and it shows in every detail. Even gave us a personal tour of the wine celler & kitchen. And of course, the food was perfect, and cocktails from the bar were outstandingly prepared. Will definitely patronize Bob's again and often.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Bobs Chop house was really good. We had great service and a nice, quiet dining experience. The bread and jar of pickles and peppers was nice and different from other steakhouses. We ordered steak entrees with glazed carrot and baked potato. As our servers brought out plates we were laughing at site of the carrot on plate. Everything tasted phenomenal however I didn't like the glaze from the carrot on my steak because they placed the steak carrot and a big potato on the plate but overall presentation of the food on the plate was hideous. I would suggest cutting the carrots into coins and maybe putting some green on the plate along with the steak/potato to give a color to the presentation of the food! in all great food, work on presentation

    I'm not much of a steak eater, but the steak here is the best I have ever tried! I have been to a number of great steak houses in Chicago, New York, and Houston. The quality of the meat and this is a preparation make this restaurant stand out. I also highly recommend the carrot cake, which was spectacular and moist. 4 kids, macaroni and cheese is a must order.

    My husband took me to Bob's to celebrate my birthday and our waiter, Paul, recommended an off the menu steak called the tomahawk. It is 2 grade cuts higher than USDA prime and is big enough to share with someone. Not only was the steak to die for, the entire experience was. We have definitely put Bob's on our favorite restaurant list.

    I had the filet which was prepared extremely well -- still having dreams about it. The meal comes with two sides (glazed carrot and choice of potato) which was included in the price. If I had a preference, I'd rather be able to pick the sides as the sides were okay, but raised the price of the entree. It is good if you want dress casual and still want a really good meal. The staff was very attentive. Oh, and the peanut butter brownie sundae was remarkable -- we shared it between 4 people and we still didn't finish it...not due to trying :) Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.
