Diner Reviews
  • "I really liked the food we had at the Chart House, but I loved the spectacular rotating view of the city of San Antonio. The city was alive with the start of Fiesta. and people were coming to an event at the Alamodome. The panaramic scene helped me better understand the layour of such a beautiful city and I was able to follow the curves and turms of the Riverwalk. My wife and I did eat a great meal. She had Salmon and I had the steak. I know she loved how her salmon was prepared. Then we had the chocolate dessert. The cake/brownie part of the dessert was tremendous (real chocalately). Our server did a great job of making us comfortable and helped spot many of the tourist highlights for us. She also made several wonderful recommendations."

  • "This restaurant has completed changed me and my wife's life forever. We expected it to be nice but we did did not expect for it to completely knock our shoes off. Food great atmosphere great and trying to top this next year is going to be incredibly challenging so I guess we will have to just go back again. To tell you the truth we will actually be returning next month for my wife's birthday. Signing off Mr. Yum Yum"

  • "We went to Chart H for lunch & it was a disaster from the minute we stepped off of the elevator. There wasn't 1 person waiting & when I told my bf that I was going to use the restroom prior to being seated, the hostess snapped at me & told me that she was going to seat me now. 1) no lunch menu on weekends which I was not informed of when I made a reservation; 2) ordered the Gorgonzola salad - it came out w/dressing, the pecans were soggy & salad was rust brown & slimy!The replacement salad was not much better aside from it now had dressing. We didn't eat it & waiter still charged us. The sides were bland & all of the food was cold. The one redeeming quality is that the view is absolutely spectacular - go get a drink & leave."

  • "We took our girls (age 4 & 6) to dinner at Chart House since we knew they would enjoy the view. But not only did they enjoy the view, our waitress was very accommodating ensuring they had meals that were kid friendly yet healthy and also a yummy dessert of vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries. My husband and I also had a wonderful meal and thoroughly enjoyed the tuna and avocado appetizer. Great experience and we will definitely be back."

  • "Food was cold. Steak medallions cold and looked like they had been run over by a car. Saffron orzo was bland they crab meat looked like shredded crab. I will say the lava cake was good. Way over priced"

  • "I had the coconut shrimp entree with the Orzo. It was decent. I will probably get something different next time. I went during lunch on a Friday so it wasn't busy. But I had a lovely experience and the view is great!!"

  • "Our group of 5 all ordered different menu items and we were all totally wowed by the incredible flavors. Enrigue, our server, made the evening very special and his team was a weel oiled machine. The apple cosmo was a real treat. The Souffle (chocolate) was a light and tasty end to the evening."

  • "Our reservation was 10pm and we were early at 930 and the lady at the counter said smugly " have a seat you will be set closer to 10pm" so we sat and waited after group after group got seated before us. we finally got sat at 1030pm then we were served and It just seemed the the waiter was ready to be off his shift as it seemed like the rest of the staff felt. Having worked in the customer service industry i know how important it is for the customer to not feel when the employee are ready to leave. It leaves a sour taste on the evening."

  • "My family recently celebrated my wife's birthday at the Chart house. The view of central San Antonio was superb,& the food and service very good, which is surprising for an establishment in a major tourist attraction"

  • "Enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and our waiter was great. My wife had the seafood sampler and I had the stuffed Flounder. Food arrived hot and timely. We enjoyed the restaurant and will probably go back on another special occasion."

  • "The service was poor, though we had a reservation and arrived when there was not a lot of other diners we were asked to wait about 10-15 min for our table to be prepared. There were plenty of clean tables by the entrance that were ready as well. They were also running the air conditioner very hard while it was 60 degrees outside. My whole party was cold. We should have just gone on the free observation deck and eaten at a restaurant with better service."

  • "I had three dinners at the Chart House over a four day period. All dinners were exceptional and I plan to return to the Chart House the next time I am in San Antonio. The noise level is such that it is easy to conduct a business meeting. I strongly recommend the Chart House."

  • "It was our first time there and enjoyed it very much from the elevator guy to the hosts and the waitress. I also was amazed that they personalized our menu's for our special occasion which I thought was an awesome gesture."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I made reservations ahead of time and indicated preference and purpose of dining due to my birthday. I asked if a personalized menu be printed and offered to my guests. When we arrived. Not even a warm hello or birthday greetings from the maître d. I have to purposely remind the waitress about the birthday celebration. She went to inform the manager but manager seems to be very busy and not willing to print personalized menu. Waitress came back with a generic menu printed happy birthday. That's very insulting. Lastly the price of food is expensive yet the quality of taste and presentation are very poor. Will not recommend this place to family and friends."

  • "I used the gift cards I'd been given and took a friend for lunch. The experience was excellent from the beginning to the end. We both had the Parmesan crusted snapper which was beautifully presented and tasted absolutely wonderful. Our server was very attentive as was the manager. Needless to say the view was spectacular and it was fun to see familiar places in San Antonio, near and far, from a different perspective. Afterward we went to the observation deck for more of the must-see view and then took the elevator down to spend some time on the grounds admiring the waterfall landscaping around the tower. Great overall experience and well worth the time and expense, even without a gift card!"
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The Chart House restaurant was amazing! From going in to the front desk on the ground floor to the elevator workers, to the restaurant employees, everything was amazing and everyone was so friendly. Even though we went for lunch, the atmosphere was still romantic and you could tell the waiters and waitresses wanted to make all experiences one to remember! I would definitely recommend the Chart House restaurant to all those who are visitors to San Antonio, or just a couple or group looking to spend a great time together with amazing food."

  • "The night was special, but the staff at the Chart House made it even more special. From an anniversary salutation written on our menus to the complimentary desert for two presented to us by the Manager, our experience at the Chart House was pleasingly memorable. The food was excellent. The wait staff was courtesy, knowledgeable and pleasant. Almost every manager stopped by our table to see if we were satisfied and everyone was extremely polite and professional."

  • "We were celebrating our 18yr anniversary and thought this would be a nice place. We drove all the way from Taylor about 1 1/2 drive.We were not thrilled with the experience we had. 15 mintues to get our water, soup didn't arrive till the entrees came, & that was only after I rreminded the waiter we had not received it. I had to keep asking for the sprite I ordered. My husband's portion was ridiculously small. For the amount of money we spent we should have had much better service. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Our daughter and son-in-law made my husband and I reservations at Char House and provided us with a nice e-gift card to the restaurant for our 29th Anniversary and the evening couldn't have been more perfect! The atmosphere was wonderful, the food was delicious, portions sizes were perfect, the view was great, and our server, Nick, took really good care of us! I would highly recommend Chart House to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion in San Antonio!"

  • "This is my second try here and had suspect service on the previous visit. Food was excellent. Filet Mignon was cooked perfect, asparagus was great, my wife's Mahi Mahi was excellent. Service is extremely slow. Our waiter was more interested in reciting the menu features from memory at a high rate of speed,while looking at the ceiling, rather than making any sort effort of eye contact or slowing down so we could understand what he was saying. Funny in retrospect, how fast the speech was and how slooooow the service was. The view over the city is amazing and the food is great! If you don't mind mediocre service then give it a try. Desserts looked amazing, but was to full to sample."
