    Brannon's at La Cantera Resort was a pleasant surprise. Food was much higher quality than I thought it would be and service was great. Nice change of pace....

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    We stayed at the hotel the night before, so breakfast was included in our "Texas hospitality" package (see hotel website). We could choose from the full breakfast buffet and the omelette station. Buffet was above average in freshness, presentation, and taste. The smoked salmon and fixings were delicious--a nice touch. The omelette chef was super friendly. We chatted for five minutes while he prepared one of the best omelettes I've had; he made sure to sauté those onions to perfection! Cappuccino and latte (not included in price) were top notch. Service was friendly. Our table had a great view, adjacent to the massive window. Overall: Very good.

  • Nothing fancy...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/9/2013
    The food was okay. It wasn't anything fancy really, hamburgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. I did like the chickpeas and eggplant trio appetizer, basically it's hummus and babaganoush. The butternut squash soup was very sweet and watery... Not to my liking. We also had the mushroom and black bean empanadas that were nothing to write home about. For the cost, I would go elsewhere. Our waiter, however, was very friendly and attentive. He gets an A++!

    Wow this restaurant gets better with age and experience! Years ago we would reluctantly go here to eat . Years ago this place seemed hopeless from the service to stale menu options. But oh my! It is now somewhere where we love to go especially for the salmon, shrimp cilantro salad and The best corn pudding ever! Cody was our waiter for the weekend. He was attentive and friendly to all. My children beg to go for salmon, hot dogs and kids' steak all with crunchy tater tots!!! Way to go management! You fixed it and made this restaurant perfect! Thank you!!!

    The main thing that was a problem besides that the mojito was mostly ice (it was good, though) was our bill was wrong. I ordered the pulled pork sliders which was on the menu for $13 but on our bill it was printed on the receipt for $15. We told our waiter and he finally came back with a total that was corrected, but did not show a full receipt that was correct. Did not apologize either. Seemed like he thought we were being too picky about it.

    Not a good experience. Waiter preoccupied with something. Waited 45 minutes for soup. The manager apologized and comped our food. I guess it was just a bad evening for them.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/19/2011
    My family's food was excellent. My husband LOVED the chicken and waffles and my daughter got the rotisserie chicken and thought it was the best she had ever had. Even the chicken on the kids plate was flavorful and well seasoned according to my husband. I am a vegetarian so there was only one dish on the menu for me- but kudos for having a veg menu item at all. The eggplant was well cooked and seasoned but arrived somewhat colder that would be optimal and the rice was just ok. Overall it was much better than the usual assortment of side dishes that I am often stuck with. Side note- the restaurant was uncomfortably cold and our server said there was nothing they could do about it since the whole hotel is controlled on one system.

Good menu options and the children menu will is great...makes you want to eat your vegetables.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I would recommend for dinner (with some caveats), but not breakfast unless it is included with your room. We had dinner 2 nights in a row, and breakfast two days in a row while we were staying at the hotel. Service was very poor both nights -- though, second night the waiter comped part of our meal, which was nice. Staff are all very friendly and well-meaning -- but seem stretched thin. Menu does not have many options, although what they have is excellent. Breakfast buffet was only marginally better than the Marriott Courtyards we usually stay at. Breakfast ordered from the menu -- food was excellent but overpriced (as hotels generally are), and menu was very limited.

    The waitress had poor training on how to serve wine. She brought a totally different varietal and year from what we ordered and proceeded to open it without asking us AND it cost $12 more than the one we ordered. Even though the restaurant was practically empty when we walked in, we were seated with a view of the supply closet, by the window with the setting sun pushing the indoor temp to a very uncomfortable level. The food was good.

    Service was terrible. We had several different people that waited on us b/c they were apparently overwhelmed at the crowd due to the nice weather. Located near the pool at the Westin the view is spectacular. The food and wine were good if you could overlook the spotty service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/8/2011
    Went to Brannon's for their breakfast buffet, especially the egg/omelette station! Their options for omelettes is unrivaled as all of the ingredients are fresh & wholesome (variety of bell peppers, jalapenos are actually spicey (not sweet), bacon is well cooked, mushrooms crisp, spinach is fresh. etc). Their pastry selection is limited (mainly to philo-dough type of pastries with the exception of a muffin or two) and that could be improved upon. Their fruit bar is fresh, sweet & well-maintained (no stray fruit in other containers) as well as their yogurt selection and fabulous oatmeal & grit station! Plenty of condiments to add to either, with the granola & brown sugar being my favorites. Would like to see a pancake option added.

    We recently moved back to San Antonio after more than 10 years living in Las Vegas. During our years in Vegas we had a tradition of having Christmas morning breakfast at the Bellagio. Brannon's may be our new tradition! At the Bellagio we had a view of their lovely gardens...at Brannon's we had a view of Texas! Just awesome. The food was excellent resort fare. Pricey, but good. The service was impressive and the friendliness of resort staff and wait staff was outstanding.

Our waiter endeared himself, not only by the service, but by being patient enough to take pictures of our ladies. Brannon's is five-star in every aspect!
