    Exceptional attentive table service, lovely atmosphere, dressy but still relaxed and fun. I had the small filet and my husband had the bone in rib eye. The steaks absolutely lived up to their reputation. Steak fries with truffle oil, house salad, lobster creamed corn, French onion soup... We loved everything. Pricey but well worth the $$$.

    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.

    We have eaten at Bohanan's many times and each and everytime the food, atmosphire and service out does the time before. The service at Bohanan's is one of the best we have every had and they treat you as though there is no other patrons around. We would suggest anyone for a special occasion or just a night at the riverwalk to try Bohanan's!

    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.

    We were celebrating out anniversary and they really made it special. There were rose petals on the table and comped us two glasses of champagne. I can't say enough about the crab cakes. They were nearly all crab and very generous portions. The greek and wedge salads were amazing and the presentation was perfection. My husband had the rib eye and said is was very good and tender. Our waiter was wonderful and said he loved what he did and had worked there for three years. Fabulous service making our evening a perfect eventing.

    It took over and hr and a half after we ordered to get our main course we ended up just having to take it to go. Obviously when you have to reheat your food the $50 steak tastes like a $5 steak. The staff was very nice I just really wish we could have enjoyed the food seeing how pricey everything was.

    Our favorite steakhouse in San Antonio. Steaks and seafood are always too notch, along with delicious sides and incredible service, you can't go wrong at Bohanan's. It can be a bit pricey, but in my book it's the best steakhouse in San Antonio, so it's worth it.

From the moment we walked through the front door until we left, the service was exceptional and well-managed, and the food was outstanding at every course. I highly recommend Bohanan's!

    By far my favorite steakhouse in San Antonio, the ambiance was great, the service was impeccable. We were a party of six (three couples) we ordered crab cakes for the appetizers, Greek salads and French Onion Soup, for the main course, the 40 oz. Porterhouse, the 24 oz. bone-in Ribeye, the Chateaubriand for two, Grilled Jumbo Asparagus, Potatoes Au Gratin, and Baked Potato. For desert it was tableside Cherry Jubilee. Fabien Jacob, Bohanas's Master Sommeliers choose an excellent wine to go with the steaks. Afterwards we headed down for some cigars out on the patio and later listen to some great jazz music. Our waiter of choice is always Mr. Mo., can't say enough about his attentiveness, his service and his talent.

    I have dined in 5 star restaurants and many highly recommended venues in a number of great cities in this and other countries and rate Bohanan's as one of the very best if not the best. In fact, all things considered the reasonableness of the cost make it my personal favorite of all. Reasonable pricing is only a small part of this exquisite restaurant. The service and cuisine are simply world class.

    First time there but won't be the last. Service was top notch, Enrique and all of our staff was very attentive and helpful. You never had to ask for anything. Excellent wine list. The "jalapeno butter" I will call it was worth the trip alone, it was absolutely delicious. The oyster appetizers are probably the best we have ever had. We had the Chateaubriand. The meat was cooked to perfection, juicy, flavorful and melted like butter in your mouth. We enjoyed our dinner immensely and will be back. Highly recommend it.

    I love Bohanan's and it was solid as usual but they missed the mark on the meat. The bone in filet was ordered medium rare but served cool almost cold. The Kobe filet while an amazing cut was ordered medium but served rare and cold. In a town of dozens of amazing steakhouses this place should be on point. Still the bananas foster was amazing as was the service.

    Rarely is a restaurant at the top regarding food and service - I don't mean good, I mean superb. Everything we had, from drinks at the bar through dessert and coffee was among the best we've ever had. The service - unobtrusive but highly effective, personable, professional, made the dining even better. Prices high for San Antonio - but not for this level of dining in other cities.

The presentation and service were outstanding, Gabriel and Shawn as well as the rest of the staff, took great care to ensure that every detail of the evening was perfect.
