Chart House Restaurant - Tower of the Americas
Awesome wait staff!The wait staff is the most professional of any that I've come across in years. Our young lady was very attentive and able to explain any dish on the menu in great detail. We started with a shrimp fondue appetizer, which was really good, followed by shrimp trio and a grand marnier souffle. And the view is stunning. I'll definitely be back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved itThis was my first dining experience at the chart house and the filet was amazing!! Best steak I've ever had!!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMcondition of buildingwith the storm that came up when we were there, the booth next to us received a big leak to where they had to move. we had some splash but nothing bad. the theater which we planned to attend was flooded out, the hallways were receiving water. We had planned to see the observation deck but they had a special event so we could not. It was our 54th anniversary and the food and dinner was great, we just did not get to complete our night. Eventually building needs repair.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMjays reviewEverything from food to prompt service was excellent except for one instance. A filet mignon was ordered medium well but was delivered more than well done. Other than this it was a great dining experience.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food; Fair serviceThe food was great. The atmosphere and view were great. The only sub par part was the wait staff. Our waitress would disappear for 10-15 min at a time and we would run out of drinks. Even when we saw her she wouldn't even check on us. We finally had to flag her and another waiter down for drinks. The sad part was that the restraurant wasn't even crowded. Its a shame because everything else was excellent.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place,Whoever I visit San antino, me and my husband always come here, the food is great, the waitess are great.....love it love it....06/10/20136/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA San Antonio MustWe had my daughter's high school graduation lunch there. The food was very good and the service was great. After lunch, we went down to the observation deck and then took great pictures with all the water features and fountains at the base of the tower. It was truly a great experience for us and our guests.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place for a special occasiogreat location and perfect place for very romantic special occasions. the food was beautifully made perfectly served and taste great service was amazing6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Special OccasionsVery nice restaurant with great food and wonderful wait staff6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh School gradGreat evening! we had three relatives in town from Washington DC and New jersey for daughter's high school graduation. Wanted to take them somewhere special - the Tower was perfect. It is a unique San Antonio venue and the food and service were fantastic.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable dining experience!This is where I proposed to my wife in 2010, and where we just celebrated our 2 year anniversary. Probably our favorite dining experience so far. A true "Gem".6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic OccasionGreat place to take you date you are trying to impress, but only if your date has never been to the Chart House Restaurant. A bit pricey but you can't beat the scenic view overlooking San Antonio. You can really impress your date by naming buildings your date points to even if you have no idea what that building really represents. Changes are your date will never know and you will come off seeming very knowledgable. Nonetheless, keep it real and have a nice evening, your paying for it.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat viewFood was very good it took a little time for the appetizer worth the wait view is terrific6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view in the city!We enjoyed great food with the best view in the city. We went to Chart House for lunch, so it was not crowded at all. The tower takes an hour and a half to complete the revolution so we took our time so we were able to enjoy the 360 degree view of the entire city. Order the molten hot lava cake to share for dessert ahead of time - makes the view even that much better!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive, but worth it.For our trip to the Tower of Americas, we made reservations ahead of time. We went at 8 pm on a Sunday night and thoroughly enjoyed the sunset in the restaurant. Upon our arrival and lift up to the restaurant, we were seated immediately. The server came around every once in awhile, but was always there when we needed him. The dessert we ate was the lava cake and every bite of it was delicious. For the price and time waiting for the cake, we both wished it was bigger. It was shareable, but we both wanted more. Overall, it was a great experience and we will return!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining!!!I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The food, ambience, and service was outstanding!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNight OutThis night out was spend with my uncle which was really fun and a night to remember. The service wasn't so great I felt like we were checked on like 3 times throughout our total time of being there for about two and a half hours. But the food was extremely good though so we were pleased about that.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat View!You will not find a better place to eat and enjoy the views of San Antonio and the surounding area! The menu has a wide variety to suit most any palate! The food was oustanding! Our Server was attentive, engaging, energetic and just plain friendly!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the CityGreat ambience in the revolving restaurant. Excellent menu, service and meal.
Perfect place for special occasion meal6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter Aljon was excellent.Our waiter Aljon was excellent. Ambiance was cozy and romantic.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood time!We went to the tower for a date night and had a great time. We only ate dessert because we ate dinner earlier, but the waiter didn't mind and was really nice. He was very helpful and professional.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasions.Visiting the tower of the ameicas is always special. It's a double treat when you can have a fantastic meal while overseeing the city at the same time. I've had friends who have visited other Landry restaurants rave how great chart house is and much better than other restaurants belonging to the same company.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGS get awayTook the misses to a weekend getaway to San Antonio, decided to take here to eat dinner before our concert. Made reservations a couple of days before, went smooth and received a conformation. Made some changes on my times and it went well. Arrived on time, and went up to the restaraunt. WOW what a view. I didn't know that the restaraunt turns as you are eating, that was real nice. We ordered a few mixed drinks which were real good and then ordered our food. My better half had seafood and I had a steak. (They were out of Ribeyes, which is the first for me) Order me a nice size New York strip. Everything was delicious, they messed up on my steak order (cant eat the blue cheese, sorry) but the manager took care of it right away. A+ Overall6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI had low expectations, but was overall fully impressed instead. Every bit worth every penny spent. Not every chart house location can provide a unique perspective, but this one does. Not a child's atmosphere, but some were there. Even I wanted to work there after I was done. Recommend reservations at sunset, for best experience. Wow. A wine lovers dream. Classy. Upscale. Top shelf. Deal Closer. Must See.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerOur waiter - Troy - was outstanding. Personable, friendly and helpful. The food was very good. Mine (Swordfish) was a bit spicy and caused a bit of a stomach upset later that night but tasted very good. My wife's Salmon was - according to her - OUTSTANDING. This was a Birthday dinner for my wife and our first visit to the Tower of the Americas.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Anniversary DinnerFrom the moment we walked in we were greeted and wished "Happy Anniversary!" from the ground floor, to the elevator, to the restaurant greeters 750 feet up, to our personal server. We even had personalized menus! We had a perfect little booth right next to the windows. Nothing could have been more romantic. Our server, Carlo, was courteous, pleasant, and knowledgable. He even took our picture. The food was delicious. The view was very romantic. We went upstairs to the observation room afterwards and read about the history of the area. The entire evening was perfect. Thank you!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceThis was my first time in the restaurant, my girlfriend and I had a great experience and a great view. Bit pricy but worth it.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMfood not good -- drinks expensive.food not good -- drinks expensive. service not attentive. woudl not recommend otherhthan the view.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM10th AnniversayDinner was awesome, service was excellent! We were first timers so we were not aware that "we were actually moving". 75 floors up and in full rotation. Crystal our server was awesome, the seafood platter that she recommended was great. We did not order our desert (which because of the fresh preparation takes 30 min) until the end of our meal, but Crystal was very attentive and placed our order without hesitation. During our wait, I asked her what time did they close, and she said 10.. It was already 11! Most waiters would have shown some sign of irritation, but she was extremely courteous and professional. Our dinner experience at Chart House was wonderful..5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTops in the TowerFabulous appetizers, especially the crab fondue. Each entree cooked to perfection with a beautiful presentation. Knowledgeable waiter. Prompt service - attentive without being fawning. Impressive view of the city. Expensive but worth it! Be sure to go to the observation deck for more views.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time! Except for the elevatorThis restaurant was amazing, very good service, great food. Pricey, but we are a few hundred feet in the air rotating (very slowly) while we eat. I loved it. The elevator was another story. It just took a ridiculous long time for it to come get us. I would only say they should figure out a way to move people faster5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMa night outReservations are a must. Friendly well trained staff. No problem requesting and getting a window seat. We only had dessert and it was good. The Chart House was a fitting way to cap off a special evening.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMwe liked the restaurant verywe liked the restaurant very much we got there early and our table was reading the waiter was very helpful talk to those couples that was a man you drink selection very good food was very prompt and great tasting no complaints here I would like to return sometime in the near future overall experience very great5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Excellent atmosphere.GREAT Food (steak). Wonderful atmosphere high above San Antonio.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMStunning viewWe were looking for an upscale restaurant with an inviting family friendly atmosphere, so we chose Chart House. The food was delcious. The drinks were refreshing. And the ambiance and view were stunning.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome timeExcellent time the dinner was great the food was even better this was the first time my wife and kids had been there and we are already bragging to our family for them to come and join.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWas a great place for ourWas a great place for our 3 couple to celebrate our anniversaries.... service was awesome & the view was fabulous.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService was Top NotchI cannot believe how impressive the service was. Other than the elevator fiasco, I was very satisfied5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMserviceGreat service ..... Blake took time to ensure our visit was going good..... Thanks5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGabriel was very excellentGabriel was very excellent and attentive waiter. The food was amazing. I ordered the snapper Hemingway and started off the best soup. I didn't really care much for the clam chowder and the gazpacho. The chocolate lava was very decadent. I also had the moscato sangria. That was yummie!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view - Food under parThe view is fantastic and the people were very pleasant. I like that the courses of the meal were spaced out so you actually have time to enjoy each dish. Couple complaints however ... I found I had to repeatedly ask for refils (not what you'd expect in a gourmet cousine) and the appetizer dish (calimari) was soggy and substandard. The entrees were okay but certainly not worth the skyhigh tab. You're definitely simply paying for the skyhigh view of the city in this place.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Evening.Our waiter was very good. He saw to all of our needs.
Our waiter ws very good. He saw to al of out needs. The view from the tower was great. it is a little pricey, but the food was very good. My wife thought the prime rib was excellent.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting San Antonio......on business and decided to dine at the Tower just for the experience. View is great from this height, but not as spectacular as the Space Needle in Seattle or the Sydney Tower in Australia. Food was very good but wouldn't say exceptional by any means. I had prime rib. It was prepared very well - medium well. My server was great. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and beautifulVery good food and beautiful views
The service lacked though5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were served by Kevin andWe were served by Kevin and made the experience a joyful one. He was knowledgeable and was not a 'hoverer' server.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be backI made a reservation for my husband's Birthday.....and let me tell you even know its price but its worth it!!!! the food was OMG soooooooooo good and our waiter Justin was really good!!! Once we got to the top there were waiting for us and they had special birthday menu for my husband.
LOVED IT!!!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner in the skyHaving dinner with a 360° view of a city as beautiful as San Antonio from 750' above the skyline is amazing5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, almost great service.My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary At The Chart House. The food was perfect to me, but for My husband he tried the swordfish and hated it. So our server said he would get the manager, well the the manager took well over 20 mins. By the time he came I was done with my meal and Ny hubby was frustrated .thankfully it only took 10 mins for them to make him another dish.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe were celebrating our 20th Anniversary. The restaurant went out of its way to acknowledge our anniversary. When we entered, I was going to ask if we could be by the window so we could marvel at the view; but they already had us a table by the window with the most perfect view. The service was great, and the food overall was good. It is a bit pricey, but for special occasions, it's worth it to see the city lit up at night.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI chose to propose to my girlfriendI chose to propose to my girlfriend there, the staff did an amazing job and really made it special. I recommend you go for a wonderful evening, and some amazing cuisine and cocktails.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
