Diner Reviews
  • "Special occasion not so special without the birthday cake. Juan could not find it. Our guests were not offered dessert. Just a piece of pie brought out to the birthday boy. I was embarrassed. melted cake wss given to us in a bag as we were leaving. Got to go box and sent melted cake home with our guests. There were air conditioning problems. Ac finally kicked on right as we began to eat. Prior to that sweating in the bar and restaurant when you have gotten dressed up is never a great thing. However the food was great and Jose in the bar had the hospitality skills of 100 people. Our cocktail waitress was very attentive as well. Sorry we forgot her name. We would still recommend it"

  • "Our server Yolanda was over the top great! She made us feel special and welcome. She was there to meet our needs at top speed. She even brought out a surprise dessert to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary."

  • "Service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was good not exceptional. My wife and I were celebrating our 42nd anniversary. We were also visiting from out of town so this was a unique dining experience for us because of the views of San Antonio while dining. Overall a fine dining experience."

  • "I brought my wife here for her 50th Birthday and it was wonderful! OpenTable reservations worked perfectly and we had no wait at all. The food was excellent, the service was top notch,the wait for the meal was just right! Very romantic for any special occasion or just a nice dinner with your favorite person (wife in this case). The view is amazing, especially at dusk when the lights are just coming on! Was a very memorable night all the way through!"
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "The view was, of course, spectacular. The service was extremely courteous and most helpful. Our waitperson made suggestions about what she felt were the most delicious options and she was right on target about those choices. The extra special touches they did in honor of our anniversary made our lunch even more memorable. I would definitely recommend the Chart House for any special occasion."

  • "We (two daughters and husband) had a 9:15 PM reservation and were seated promptly. After that, the wait was extremely lengthy to get our food. Our table was very wobbly and the waiter put a napkin under it so it make it a little more stable. My dish was barely luke-warm when I got it, but it was way too late (about 10:45 PM) to have another one made. We got refills only once after our glasses had been empty for a while. Also, someone at a nearby table had a child that screamed continuously so this made the experience even more annoying. I have been there before and always loved the food and experience. This last visit was very disappointing and I don't expect to go there for another special occasion."

  • "My boyfriend and I had been looking forward to celebrating our anniversary here for weeks. The experience was a HUGE let down. Our server was ok, but with the high end nature we thought the restaurant was, we were not tended to as such. He came over twice to tell us our order would be out shortly. When it finally did arrive at our table it tasted as if it had been left out for more than a short time. It was not hot, barely warm. My stuffed shrimp was a bit dry and did not have enough butter sauce as I think it had evaporated or dried up. We were not asked to sample wine by a gentleman in a suit that was tending and talking with other tables. We were never asked if we wanted a picture, which I would have paid for. Had to take them outside."

  • "We dined here for our anniversary. Of course the view could not be beat. The service was excellent and our server Monique was friendly and took great care of us. I had requested a window seat on line and was accommodated. The hostess and waitress both wished us a Happy Anniversary and made us very relaxed. The food was good. the scallops were perfect however the shrimp Chimichuri was very plain. We stopped at the bar for a night cap. The bar area also provided an excellent view but the bartenders were not overly friendly."

  • "Coming from a rural area with little finances I saved to give my child a life exeperience as an 18th birthday memory. I Was at the world fair at age 2 and shared the experience with my young historians pointing out all the City buildings as we rotated 2 times and enjoyed a satisfying dinner with a candled cake and Happy Birthday Song. The Chart House even printed Happy 18th Birthday and his name on top of the Menus and then rolled the menus with a tie for keepsake. We all were pleased with our historian, elegant style experience. My Child was elated with excitement rewarding with grins and hugs. Thank You Chart House for fulfilling a dream event on an 18th birthday wish. J.C. 8/21/2014"

  • "We usually go every couple of weeks. The service is always great! The food is generally great as well. This past visit was not so great. I ordered my steak medium well and it came out very red. It was taken back to finish and this time came out way overdone. I'm surprised it was sent back to me blackened. It literally tasted burnt. I didn't send it back again as I do not like to complain over and over. We would still go back though as the visits are usually pretty good."

  • "Arrived 15 minutes before reservation time, seated almost immediately. Offered the Chef's Special on both appetizers & main course, accepted both. Excellent service, very attentive, food was marvelous! Atmosphere was wonderful, semi-quiet, able to talk softly & hear each other. View was spectacular watching the lights come on at dusk. Will definitely dine here again, very romantic setting."

  • "The service was wonderful and very attentive. This is a place for a special occasion. A bit pricy for just an everyday meal but you expect that before you make a reservation to such a nice place. I highly recommend eating here."

  • "Was there for a special occasion and the server messed up our order. I told him it was considering desert and he put and order in anyways then told me I already ordered it! He gave us the wrong menus with a different name. Then lost ours . Just frustrating ."

  • "This is a nice restaurant the food was good but I wouldn't say great and the view of the city is nice also. The restaurant was noisy but after a while it's not that bad."

  • "This restaurant is great for evening dining out. The views were outstanding, service was excellent, and the meal delicious. Seeing San Antonio from this height while.enjoying a wonderful meal is outstanding."

  • "We arrived 20 mins late for a 5pm reservation (because parking downtown was a nightmare!), I had called and let them know but I was thankful that the hostess I spoke to understood. When we arrived the first hostess was very friendly, even wished us a happy anniversary. The host staff at the restaurant level were sufficiently nice, but more focused on getting their ducks in a row than the actual ducks. Upon being seated I noticed the table cloth was stained. I made a comment and rubbed it with my finger, the hostess pretended not to notice. The windows were smeared or dirty in several places, in a place like that I would have expected cleaner. Appetizer was delicious, entree also very good, but mash pots only warm. Server was adequate."

  • "The view is amazing and the foos id good. Not outsanding, but good. The service I experienced was a disaster though and I wouldn't go back because of that. I would recommed the place for its view and ambient."

  • "2 of us went for dinner. It's the Tower of the Americas so of course the view was amazing. They had plenty of options that I could piece together on the menu as I'm vegan. A separate vegetarian or vegan menu would have been nice but I managed ok with their main menu. You just have to order off the side menu or they had a hummus appetizer that worked. It is definitely a steak house so it is geared towards serving the meat and seafood foodies out there. While the table and food service was stellar the restroom facilities were less than perfect. If I'm paying over $80 for a couple of dinners I expect everything to be great."

  • "As part of my vacation to San Antonio, my family and I chose to go to Chart House. On the first floor, there will be a photographer who will take a photo of you in front of a green screen & when you get up to the restaurant, they will show you the photos at your table and you can choose to buy it. The view was amazing esp. when you book a table for 8pm because that's when the sun begins to set which means photo op! Although it took a while for someone to come to our table to take our order, the view and the environment and being there with family made up for it. And the tower also spun slowly as you ate! We got our table at 8pm-ish and left at 10. We spent about an hour just waiting on our food and drinks. Overall, great experience, though!"

  • "Went there for our anniversary with out kids! The food was horrible!!! We ordered the calaMari for app and it tasted fishy and was cold!! Not fresh!! The mash potatoes were aweful...cold and lumpy! We told the waiter and he brought more out that were the same! He said that is how we serve them!! Didn't offer anything else!! We spent a pretty penny there and were very unhappy!! We had collected over a hundreds dollars worth of gift cards that we saved just to use at this restaurant and are very sad that we wasted them there and has a bad experience!!! We are Landrys select club members and go to Vic and Anthony's a lot! This place doesn't come close in quality of food!! Sadly... We will NEVER go back to this restaurant again!"

  • "Arranged a business dinner for 16 clients at the Chart House on a recent stay to San Antonio. The manager was able to accommodate an increase in the size of our party from 10-16 at the last minute which was wonderful. Service was wonderful and the appetizers came out quickly to begin the meal. The entire party enjoyed the amazing views of the city. We were able to capture the sunset which lead to an outstanding view of the city at night. I went back the next day for lunch and was impressed again by the service and food offerings. This is a definite go-to place for business, pleasure or family meals. Truly enjoyed the overall experience!"

  • "Tower of America's is a tradition for special occasions for my family. My daughter was one month old when it opened. We always feel special at the Chart House Restaurant, the service and food make celebrations memorable. I appreciate the extra care the staff showed my family, since we were celebrating two grandkids birthdays and my daughter conquering cancer. It was a perfect day."

  • "Food was great, and wait staff was even better, believe the gentleman's name was Daniel, but the view was by far my favorite. I will say though I was a little upset when I saw that everything on the check was five dollars more than the menu stated. Not that I truly minded, I would just prefer for the honest price to be on the menu. Also, when my girlfriend and I decided we would head up to the observation deck, we found people who we did not believe had dined at the restaurant and honestly were just in the way and creating a ruckus and disturbing the environment. If you could please limit the type of guests up there, that would be greatly appreciated when I dine again in the future."

  • "I had a horrible waitor who was so unprofessional. I asked for a straw and he went to the drawer and dug one (unwrapped) from the bottom of the drawer and gave it to me. He also touched all over me and my dates silverware after scratching his nose. Then he mentioned how he wanted to yell at a few coworkers. Very very disappointed with my experience there. Would not recommend."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Food was outstanding and well plated. The atmosphere was nice but just a little loud for me. My only complaint would be there should be some sort of dress code. The couple sitting next to us dressed as if the just walked out of Walmart on a tax free Friday. The guy was in an oil stained tank top and cut off shorts. The were also very rude and loud which was probably why we noticed them at all."

  • "We are new to San Antonio (moved from NJ). We visited this place for our marriage anniversary. What I loved about this place is the care they take for each and every patron. They printed "Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. XYZ" on our menu. We were surprised and appreciated. We loved the food and drinks. The 360 degrees view is great. The Restuarants rotates at a slow pace so you can see 360 degrees. Food is little expensive but totally worth it. Highly recommend this place!!!"

  • "The views are simply spectacular...especially if you have a local to point out the landmarks. We 5 in our group at a window table...four facing the window and one at the end...which made it hard to hold a group conversation. It is a wonderful place for TWO. Stick with the beef...it is Texas, after all!"

  • "food was ok..don't order the chopped salad....its horrible..and lots of onions in the salad. Ordered steak ...it was ok...not the best i had. Also, they had a bat (yes..the bird/animal bat) loose in the restaurant and it was just flying around scared. Overall, this place is only good for its unique location...don't expect great food."

  • "Everything was great except for the service. The waiter was not very attentive to our table. We kept waiting for him to come around. I ordered a salad that contained blue cheese and he never came around to switch it out until about 20 minutes later when he came to pick up the plates. Not impressed at all. We stayed a lot longer than we would have liked because of the lack of attentiveness. I will not be returning."
