Diner Reviews
  • "One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Bohanan's is paradise for steak lovers!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Food was excellent along with service. Staff also remember you and greet you by name. For cigar smokers, you can go to their outside patio area and enjoy a beverage."

  • "I chose Bohanan's as the restaurant to propose to my future wife. Via opentable I requested a table with a view and a single red rose on the table; they did a great job meeting both requests! The service was outstanding. Our waiter was Rick and he met our needs perfectly. We were not rushed, the meal was outstanding. When it came time to ask for her hand, and she finally stopped crying long enough to say yes, two crystal glasses filled with champagne appeared compliments of the restaurant. What a wonderful night made possible by a great restaurant."

  • "Ended up at the Chef's table this evening. The service was impeccable. Our 8 year old was treated as a prince. The wine pairing to food and our tastes was perfection. The steak, as always, was amazing. Chef Bohanan runs an incredible kitchen, sourcing incredible staff and food to match. This must be one of the best steak restaurants in the world."

  • "Best steaks ever. Lump crab was super fresh. Service in the restaurant is first rate. But bar leaves much to be desired. There were only 4 tables of people and many staff present but difficult to be served. When drinks arrived (it took a long time) one was even wrong."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food was very good and we enjoyed our evening at Bohanan's. The wine list was lacking in moderately priced wines which would have been much appreciated, however."

  • "When looking for a romantic venue to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary we looked no further than Bohanan's Prime Steaks and Seafood. Hearing that it was owned by a fellow Aggie and learning that he is the hands- on chef we felt that it would be a fine resturant to celebrate. The bar staff were friendly and the drinks were made to perfection. Once arriving at the dining area by elevator, we were seated and never felt rushed by the staff. Both of our meals were excellent. Although the prices are higher end and a la cart we did not leave hungry like some finer resturants that we have expereinced before. When visitng the San Antonio area and looking for that special dining experience make reservatrions at Bohanan's, you will not be sorry!"

  • "This was the most incredible eating experience we've had- best way to celebrate anniversaries! Staff very attentive and helped make it special with rose petals, roses and champagne! Oh yes, the "to die for melt in your mouth" steaks. The best we've ever eaten. We look forward to more experiences."

  • "The maître d was very accommodating and made me and my business partner feel very welcome, like there was no rush and not a care in the world. The food was good, but I felt it was a bit overpriced. I had the Chateau Stack with a Japanese Akaushi filet substitute ($130), which was good, but I expected more flavor from the beef as I have had Akaushi meat several times before and knew what to expect. Overall, I would come back and give this resto another try, they have a wide menu which I am sure is just as good, if not better."

  • "When the opportunity arises to "treat yourself (and a special person in your life)" make sure you book a table at Bohanan's! Absolutely exquisite! The expertise of every server, assistant server and staff are a welcomed surprise in a world where courtesy and kindness are scarce! The presentation of the choices of food was exemplary!!! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff to assure that our dining experience was perfect! Jenny, our server, was delightful and genuine! We will return and specifically ask for Jenny!!!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had dinner in that restaurant. I can say that dinner was the best comparing with another places. Food was delicious! I loved their halibut and macaroni cheese! The staff was attentive and obliging! I will definetly be back to this restaurant ;) I recommend this place!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Fantastic as always! Music was a tad loud for our party of three at a four top for dinner. I still recommend Bohanan's as my favorite place to take out of town guests or business clients!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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 :)"

  • "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."
