    Both the ahi starter and steak entre were superb. We had to wait nearly an hour after the starter before the steaks arrived, but when they did, they were worth it. Very busy restaurant, service excellent when you get it.

    If your expectation is to have the Best then Bohanan's should be your first choice. Every detail of having a totally top shelf dining experience is addressed at Bohanan's-WITHOUT having to ask! From the minute you arrive all you have to worry about is making a decision on what to order as the choices are all fantastic. Bottom line-you need to go there!

    When we arrived at our booth, we were greeted with rose petals strewn on the table cloth, followed up with two glasses of champagne. I mentioned when making the reservations that we would be celebrating our 5th anniversary. Very nice touch! The food was delicious and service was attentive. Beautiful restaurant!

    This was our first time to try Bohanan's and it was an incredible find. We had heard of it and expected it to be expensive, which it was. But we did not expect it to be so worth it. And in the scheme of things, it was very reasonably priced. The little appetizer they have is at the beginning (sugared jalapeno peppers over cream cheese) were delicious. The wine list was extensive and excellent. Steaks were cooked perfectly and my husband is very fussy. The broccoli was crisp tender and the au gratin potatoes were superb. Even the wedge salad, which you would consider to be pretty standard was extra good with Maytag bleu cheese that made me want to lick the plate. Sergio gave us impeccable service.

    This may well be our best dining experience ever. Bohanon's mix of ambiance, food quality, and service made for a wonderful combination. Our server, Angela, was so knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to our needs. We were visiting from out of town and went to Bohanon's prior to attending a play at the Majestic. We are already talking about a return trip to San Antonio to visit Bohanon's.

    This restaurant is excellent in every aspect. The downstairs is an upscale bar with great music. Upstairs is the restaurant which also has a small bar. We had a table by the window upstairs which we would definitely request again however; the entire restaurant is well appointed. It reminds me of a cross between New Orleans and Washington DC steakhouses. The wine list is extensive with a wide range of prices. The on menu steaks are superb (3 of us enjoyed the filet) but they also offer off menu choices that are much more expensive. The crabmeat stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon was excellent as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Our first time at Bohanan's. Perfect dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Food (Filets) was great, service outstanding and we didn't feel like we were rushed. Waiter (Josh - highly recommended) asked if we were attending the show at the Majestic Theater (and we were), he made sure we were checked out with plenty of time to walk across the street for the show. They even held our leftovers in their fridge to pick up after the show.

    A special place for special occasions. Bohanan's is a trip back in time to the elegant steakhouses of yesteryear. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Every detail was outstanding. The steak was deliscious and the macadamia nut encrusted red snapper is a treat. A bit pricey for a regular habit, but well worth that special dining experience.

    Food was great and overall the service was excellent. We did wait awhile for some of the courses such as dessert. Also, another waiter had a table set up behind me and started cooking one of the flaming desserts. The flame came up so high that I moved my chair because I thought I was going to get burned. Not fun. A little too noisy for me.
