    We very much enjoyed our 25th wedding anniversary dinner and drinks at Bohanan's. The experience was top notch. The dining room and bar staff exceeded our expectations- very skilled and welcoming. Both food and drink menus are extensive and creative. My one negative thing- the web site showed a dress code, that most of the diners adhered to(including us). We were there celebrating a special occasion and it was annoying to be seated in between one table with men wearing golf shorts and another table wearing faded blue jeans. If they advertise a dress code- it should be enforced.

    I selected Bohanan's due to its reputation. In my opinion the meal wasn't a "WOW" I could have gone to Saltgrass for the same quality of food. I nor my wife are wine drinkers so when we didn't order their expensive wine I got the feeling that I was being rushed to open a table for the next guests. Lastly, when we arrived we were seated at the very back of the dining room near the kitchen door when only two other couples were in the room. So my romantic view was of a mirror and the kitchen door. As for my over all review I have had my first and last meal at Bohanan"s.

    first time here and not only was the service slow, two of us were finished eating by the time the third persons food showed up. the management was very nice to take care of her dinner, but we were disappointed that my birthday experience was not as glowing as others had told me it would be. will try again, but make sure they are not at capacity and can actually HEAR our orders..

    My husband got a filet medium rare it was perfect. I got the quail which were to die for. Cocktails & wine were both wonderful. We have a 2 year old and they catered to us to make our evening super special with her. We stayed at the Embassy Suites and it was an easy walk for dinner.

    Although it's about a 2 1/2 hour drive, we chose Bohanan's to celebrate a milestone birthday. The entire experience was everything we'd hoped for. We shared a divine Caprese Salad, each ordered a steak, & shared 2 sides. The steaks were wonderfully flavored, even without the Bearnaise Sauce we ordered. The Lobster Creamed Corn is delicious, unique & not to be missed! As much as we would have loved to try a dessert, we had to pass. Next time, we'll share only 1 side (the corn!), & save room for a dessert, The wine list is extensive, & the wait staff superb. Truly a gem!

    We went to Bohanan's after a disappointing visit to another neighborhood "steak house". Bohanan's was 110% hands down. The candied jalapenos over whipped cream cheese complementary appetizer was so good we have Googled how to make it! We had the Akauski beef filet mignons (well worth the money), creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes. Topped off with table side made bananas foster. If you are in San Antonio, take the time to eat here.

    Amazing doesn't really do Bohanan's justice, but it is as close as I can find. My Wife and I went here to celebrate our 5th anniversary and were blown away by the service, the food, and everything overall! We had an amazing meal, with a dry aged steak that was ridiculously good, asparagus and sauteed mushrooms that were to die for, and finished it off with strawberries imperial (Dinner and a Show!!) I cannot say enough great things about our experience at Bohanan's. Just awesome! After dinner we were on our way out, and found a live band in the bar that we had to sit and enjoy while having a few drinks, and found the same level of service in the bar as was in the dining. What a great night!

    Bone in New York, Best steak I've ever had, and I've had some great ones. My wife had the AKAUSHI New York. It was excellent, but a bit underwhelming. Our server, Michael, was extraordinary. I also had an Old Fashion cocktail made with Templeton rye.... sublime.

    We were in San Antonio overnight and decided to eat on the River Walk so we chose Bohanan's and we were very pleased. I had the ribeye and my wife the mahi, both were fantastic. The only problem was with the service, it was not worthy of anything but a fair review.

    Decided to try this steakhouse over The Palm Steakhouse because it was local. I was traveling on business, so luckily cost wasn't much of an issue. The steaks were fair at best. We both ordered the bone-in ribeye ($20 more expensive than The Palm next door) and the flavor was bland and ordinary. On the other hand, service was very good and Chimay on tap was good. Went to The Palm the next day for lunch because I was so dissatisfied.

    Cooked rare to perfection as requested. What a beautiful piece of meat from the Allen Bros. folks. The wife had oysters, lightly breaded, and absolutely mouth-watering. The servings are large here. A little loud in the dining room but we could carry on a conversation with our friends. Our server(s) were very attentive and took great care of us. Thank you for a special evening.

    My experience was spectacular! We were greeted by the hostess,headed upstairs to our table (which was the best seat in the house)which was recently remodeled.Once we finished dinner our waiter comes by with a cart for the banana fosters. While I was busy recording the finale of the flame, our waiter was getting the dessert prepared on the plate at this time I was too busy posting on my social media to not even notice the BIG FINALE that would be the happiest day of my life! My boyfriend grabbed this beautiful box got down on his knee and began to express his love and asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes and the entire restaurant went in an uproar!Now I know that the entire staff was helping my now fiancé plan this wonderful night!

    There seemed to be miscommunication amongst the servers, our before dinner drinks were to be added to the final bill as was discussed when we arrived. Rather, two different servers came to our table as we were enjoying our dinner and demanded $10.00 dollars for the drinks rather than just add it to the final bill. Thought that could have been handled more professionally as we did spend $200.00 dollars for dinner, the wait staff is very inexperienced for the most part.

    I have dined at Bohanan's several times and I have never been disappointed. Their service is impeccable, the ambiance is 5 star and the steaks are top of the line. They have a very comprehensive wine list and their wine prices are in line with other restaurants of similar caliber. Their off the menu steaks are a must and the flambéed strawberries are prepared table side along with vanilla icecream making for a very delectable dessert. All in all I highly recommend this restaurant.

    The service was outstanding, the food was delicious, and the dining area was very elegant. All diners receive their candied jalapenos on cream cheese with butter toast, and fresh bread with butter. For those who don't like meat, they have a vegetarian platter that was enormous. My husband had the chicken with goat cheese mashed potatoes. Delicious. We ended the meal with Cream Brule, also, excellent. After our meal, we sent to the first floor and listen to the Jim Cullum Jazz band, which is a must see. It was a wonderful evening I would highly recommend.

    . We have been trying many different restaurants throughout the San Antonio area and I have to say it is definitely one of the best, if not the best. The food was delicious, the service attentive and the ambiance was terrific. We sat at the bar for a drink before dinner, the bartender (Clint) made us wonderful margaritas that we don't often find in even good restaurants. We order salads (house and spinach) and both were excellent. My husband ordered snapper with crab and scallops and I ordered the tenderloin and a baked potato. I ordered the potato with all the trimmings but there was too much sour cream for my liking. But that was my fault because I should have asked for light sour cream. We were so full we didn't order dessert.
