Diner Reviews
  • "From the first call requesting a special table overlooking Houston Street, to our dessert, the entire experience was wonderful. As locals know, specific seating is no guarantee, however I thought it was worth a call, as we had guests visiting from Rochester, Minn.. On this night, they were able to accommodate our party of five. Jenny and Tony took care of us, and their non intrusive, yet attentive service was outstanding. We began with appetizers, which included a special request for the Tiger Shrimp. Although the Tiger Shrimp (taste), was to me, much like a large gulf shrimp, I ordered it for the presentation (an impressive sea creature). I had the Akaushi steak, and for a real foodie, this is a required item. Thank you Bohanan's"

  • "We came to Bohanan's to celebrate my husband and I's first night out together since having our 4 month old daughter. We have eaten at other high end steakhouses and this is our new favorite. My husband LOVES steak. He had a previous love at another restaurant for their ribeye. However after taking one bite out of Bohanan's ribeye he looked at me and pronounced his love for it, lol! It literally melted in your mouth! (Of course I had a bite!) I had the Red Snapper Royale...to die for! We had the lump crab cake as an appetizer, no complaints. The candied walnuts in their house salad were awesome! THEN we had the carrot cake for desert...holy moly we are STILL talking about it! Superb! The service was EXCELLENT all the way around the house!"

  • "My girlfriend and I went for our 3rd anniversary and we could not have picked a better restaurant. The service was incredibly professional, kind, and helpful. Our waiter was able to answer every question we had and helped us choose from the great drink selection they have available. The food was some of the best that I have ever had. We shared a caesar salad and while she enjoyed the butterflied jumbo shrimp that were stuffed with crab and wrapped in bacon, I was devouring the 16oz New York strip steak. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. I would recommend this to anybody that is able to afford it. Well worth it for a special occasion, entertaining guests, or a dinner on the corporate account."

  • "The bartender feels obligated to warn me (on my first cocktail), "are you sure you want to order that? It is quite boozey." I don't appreciate or anticipate advice from a bartender as though he was my father. We were literally seated at a table facing an open door to the kitchen. Not good. We were then moved to a room were the restaurant seated families with children. A young boy was running in circles loudly stating that he had to go the the bathroom. Service was very slow and inattentive. My husbands medium steak arrived rare and my shrimp dish was cold... The waiter never cleared the table... very disappointed."

  • "Food and atmosphere was good. We had the upmost attention from waiting staff until a few large parties came in and then we were obviously put on low priority. We were left feeling slightly disappointed! But overall we enjoyed our experience."

  • "This was our 25th wedding anniversary. I was looking for a place that I could take my wife and celebrate, without having a lot of people being loud. I saw the advertisement in the Express-News. I then booked our engagement. I am so glad I did. This place is so awesome! Our waiter, Mo was filled with knowledge. His information rolled off his tongue. Mo never missed a beat in his presentation. The atmosphere was so great and made us feel as if it was just for us. A big hit and my wife loved it. The steaks were very good! I thought I could grill steaks! My wife enjoyed her meal, as well as me. We will be coming back 10 November 2014 to celebrate the Marine Corps birthday. Thanks for a great evening and meal. Job well done!"

  • "After several disappointing visits, I am happy to say my filet was back to "best in SA", like the 1st couple of times I dined there. 2 with Tuna were underwhelmed; 1 overcooked. Great dinner for others & service excellent."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I was expecting a great experience, but was a little disappointed. The service is average, the stakes and the tuna are spectacular. The escargots are awful and also the fried oysters. I'd say that it is more pretentious than it really is."

  • "Came here to celebrate a birthday. Had a hard time finding parking downtown and was running a little behind. Called the restaurant to let them know we were about 10 min behind. Got an slight attitude from the hostess about it. Started me off with a little negative impression. However, once we arrived we had an excellent experience. Angela was our server she was fantastic. She knew her menu and represented the restaurant very well. Never intrusive but there when you needed her. Food was fabulous. Nothing was a disappointment. Will be back!"

  • "Our dinner at Bohanan's was one of the finest we've ever had. The service was impeccable and the food was simply awesome. From the cheese plate we shared at the bar, and then from our appetizers through dessert the meal was simply outstanding. Our waiter Josh was also first class. We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Bohanan's and our table had rose petals scattered around the center candle piece. They also gave us a complimentary glass of champaign to recognize the occasion. This was our first time at Bohanan's but it won't be our last."

  • "Wonderful all around! Perfect timing of each course to get us to the theater on time. Great location downtown and just across the street from the theater. No rushing. Best escargot ever! That's a meal by itself. Veal so tender it cut with a fork. Steak melted. Massive wine selection and full bar. They even hold "people" leftovers bags to p/u after theatre. And discounted valet parking. Going back for my birthday."

  • "You can't go wrong at Bohanan's. We had appetizers, soup, steak, seafood, and dessert. The French Onion soup is some of the best you will find anywhere, but keep in mind it's almost like having a full meal. Very filling, but very enjoyable. The steaks are from Allen Bros. of Chicago and are prime. You will know it with every bite. The thing that makes Bohanan's really stand out above all else is the deep dish Pecan Pie. Skip the other fancy desserts and have the pecan pie. It will be the best you've ever had and the most unique. Service is fantastic and the wait staff is so personable. Impressive wine list. Bohanan's is worth it. Go."

  • "I haven't been out on a date with my husband in a while so when we saw an opportunity to sneak away, we wanted to make it count. This place is upscale, meets old 40s style with jazzy Fitzgerald playing in the background, down to the beautiful scene from the second story (Restaraunt level) with creeky wooden floors to top everything off. I loved it! The first floor consisted of a bar/lounge that attracts an older crowd (30-50yr olds) with a large menu of drinks to offer, and my favorite, martinis. For dinner, my husband ordered the filet with mushrooms, which was buttery as promised and I had the red snapper with lobster and scallops, which was also very tasty and filling. The service was excellent! Dress business casual or better :)"

  • "We were talked into the Akaushi Kobe-style beef by our excellent host and I have to say, it was an absolutely marvellous experience. I have in my time been fortunate enough to enjoy some excellent steaks, but I now have a new number one, the 10oz filet served at Bohanan's! As with all absolutely top class steaks it melted in my mouth and the flavour was unbelievable. True ambrosia, food of the gods and a zenith of delight for the taste buds. Unfortunately it is expensive, $100/steak, but if you can afford it then it is an experience so good that it has to be tasted to be believed."

  • "Overall, this restaurant was what my wife and i were expecting. The decor, attention to detail and service were beyond expectations. We expected pay an arm and a leg for this dinner, We paid much less than expected. Honestly i didn't care about the prices. I cared about the service....the staff was excellent. Attention to detail and service were beyond expectations. The food was amazing. The portions were perfect. After dinner we hit the bar, smoked a cigar and listed to the jazz music. Our nite started and ended here. No need to go else where. My wife was happy, Wine & dine led to the perfect nite. Mr Jacob was on top of service. Great host staff. Highly recommended for a special evening."

  • "The quality of the meat cut is not what I have come to expect from this restaurant. Of course I ordered off the menu. Still, there was a time when the menu steak was superb. I could have bought this steak at the local HEB and had the same quality in my backyard."

  • "The entire experience was great. Walking through the bar downstairs sets the mood from the moment you walk in. We were greeted immediately and escorted to the elevator that leads to the dining room upstairs. Once we arrived on the second floor we were greeted by two friendly hostesses and shown to our table. We had two waiters serving us and they were both very attentive and friendly. The wine list was extensive and the food was perfect. We had the Filet Mignon and they were cooked to perfection. All of the sides were delicious and unfortunately we were so full that we didn't get to try any desserts. The ambiance is one of the best in San Antonio and from our table we could see the historic Majestic theatre which added to the experience."

The service is wonderful and the staff even better. We have dined all over San Antonio but this is by far the best and certainly in the top 5."

The salads, appetizers, and sides were tasty. Prices were on par with other prime steakhouses. The wait staff is attentive. The wine list is diverse."

Since the sequel is never as good as the original, my expectations were somewhat tempered, but it was even better than what I remember. Can't say enough how great the steak was. Worth every penny."

  • "Although the food is always good, I would much rather pay premium prices for "grass-fed-only" beef. I appreciate the effort of obtaining the Akaushi (Texas-raised) beef. I don't like the vague-ness of "grain-fed" when describing a genetically modified food source. The cows are genetically modified and I'm pretty sure the grass and grain they are fed are as well. The restaurant needs an acoustic remedy. It is ALWAYS too loud in there. Unless you're good at lip-reading-you can't hear what the person across/next to you is saying. With that said... I have been to this Bohanan's Restaurant 8 times, so far."
