Chart House Restaurant - Tower of the Americas
Graduation Celebration!We had a wonderful time. We celebrated our daughters college graduation. We surprised her and she loved the restaurant and the fabulous views! A great time was had by all.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove ItTook My Girl Friend there for mothers day and everything from the food to the service was outstanding.The night view of the city was amazing,my girl friend was so excited over the scenery and the romantic setting she wanted to cry. I'm from Louisiana and I recommend this restaurant5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWe made a reservation for 7 for Mother's Day at the Chart House. Minimal wait to get to our table, service was good. Food tasted good other than the salad was chopped into tiny pieces. Fantastic view in this restaurant. It's pricey but a great place for a special occasion. Elevators do take quite a long time is the only gripe.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSan Antonio GemI have gone to the Tower restaurant in many incarniations over the last 3 decades. I took my Mother here for Mothers Day and the food with the Chart House ownership the food is amazing. The finish of the restaurant is exceptional and the view is amazing. Our waiter was sweet and attentive but his uniform could have been more polished and the little details like service precision, silverware managenent, and lack of crumb blade usage were noticably lacking. While this makes it less white tie/formal then I remember (and prefer) it does feel more accessable for the average diner/tourist.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood steak second timeOur steaks were both way overcooked but after I sent it back they cooked it like I ordered. It was just a shame it took them two tries to get it right though. The manager and waiter were great and very apologetic though. I'd still recommend them as long as you don't have a fear of heights.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent date night!I was in town visiting my boyfriend who is in be army at Fort Hood. We were celebrating our four year anniversary and I cannot imagine a better place to have celebrated! The views were phenomenal and the service and good were just as amazing! Thanks for a wonderful evening with my soldier!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe service and food was all great. Keep up the good work5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience.We are always looking for new places to eat. I'm not sure why we have never considered here. The food was great. We had a drink in the lounge prior to being seated and the staff was amazing. We will definatly recommend the chart house to all of our friends.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLuvn the TowerIt was my 2nd time visiting the Tower and we loved it. I celebrated my 1st Anniversary dinner. The beat of the best, hands down.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI took a lady friend for ourI took a lady friend for our first formal date(first time Charthouse for her) and she was so impressed by the service(patrick was our server) view and ambience that in effect the experience for her was a big plus for me! I look foward to going again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMcoldThe air was blowing pretty aggressively most all the time. Because of the cold air the temperature of the food was not good. It cooled off fast and cold fish does not taste good. It would have been nice to actually have all seating look toward the window.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Birthday!It was an amazing evening, it's just frustrating for foodies such as ourselves (members of the club) to be parked at a tiny table for two even though we have a history of buying copious amounts of food. I felt limited by the table space and wish the two could have been correlated. (i.e. history of food bought against group size as there was a larger table next to us, empty the entire time of our visit.) However, with that being said - we had a beautiful view and the food was 'to die for' delicious and Rico, our server was personable and dedicated.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't be beat...Just a phenomenal experience! The food is amazing, the service is fantastic, and the view is divine! This was as good a family experience as we could possibly have had. We loved every minute of it and can not recommend it highly enough.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTheTravelerIn SA & want a view with your meal, this is the place especially at sunset. I go there everytime i am in town NEVER been disappointed with anything. Wait staff do an excellent job with knowledge of menu, timing, and service. Chefs do wonderful in preparation and display of the food. Management even comes by to make sure everything is as you desire. I have eaten in lots of places. This is one of my top favorites.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealThe dishes were well portioned and great tasting. The continuously changing scene as the restaurant rotates creates interesting views of the city.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMvery happyOn May 5th I took My mom to surprise her with dinner at the tower of Americas along with my brother. My mom is almost 57 and has lived in San Antonio all her life and has never gone. When I finally showed her her surprise she couldn't believe it. She was so happy!! From the moment we opened the door the hostess downstairs greeted us happily. Made us feel welcomed. Then when we got upstairs the hostess again welcomed us with a smile. Very friendly. The dinner was delicious. Our waiter was phenomenal. I can not remember his name, I'm very bad with names but he did a fantastic job. Made this night even more special for my mom and us. Thank y'all so much. I look forward to taking her back when I come home to visit again.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a Special San Antonio Treat...My wife and I spent our honeymoon in San Antonio years ago and had dinner at the Tower of the Americas restaurant. The restaurant has undergone some changes since then, as you might imagine, but the spectacular view, which changes throughout your dining experience, still brings a smile to our faces. The restaurant rotates as you dine, giving you a complete panorama of San Antonio while you dine! Best time to go in May is probably closer to 8pm so you can see the amazing sunset! Bar was great upstairs and they paged us on my phone when our table was ready. There is nothing on this menu that is shabby..all top notch food with a Texas chic/Oriental mix flavor. Interesting flavor combinations. You should go...no question!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience! TheWonderful experience! The view is amazing from all directions, and the seafood is great! Best service I've had in a long time - quick and friendly. Beware of the tablecloth catching as the restaurant spins. (I hear it doesn't happen too often, though.) Overall, it was a very exciting and memorable night.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!We really enjoyed the meal and experience- though it is a little pricey!
Great for a special occasion. The on-line reservation system is wonderful.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to the Chart House forWent to the Chart House for our 2 year Aniversary. I was very impressed with all of the service, from the bar staff to the waitstaff. I had read prior reviews, which were very mixed and was not sure what type of service I would get or how the experiance would be on the whole. To say the least I have no complaints whatsoever. The food was amazing, the view spectacular, service was great. I would recommend this restauraunt to anyone visiting San Antonio4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner experienceFor our last evening in San Antonio, I wanted to do something special and memorable. Chart House at the top of Tower of the Americas was the perfect choice. The view was, of course, spectacular. The grounds of Hemisfair Park are stunning. And our meal was delicious. My husband and I both had snapper; he chose the Grilled Snapper, and I ordered Snapper Hemingway.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great view of the lightingHad a great view of the lighting and rain, we will definitely return when in San Antonio.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the service exceptional.

Great food and service in a beautiful setting. It's my favorite place to take out of town guests. Wish I could get there more often!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time! ServiceWe had a great time! Service was on the slow side but we were in no rush and this is probably done on purpose so you can do a full rotation while you eat. The view was awesome and the food was great. Really liked the bar too.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a very fine diningThis is a very fine dining restaurant. The food quality was excellent and the view was out of the world. The service was however you want it to be based on your time frame, just tell them. Everything was so very wonderful, I would recommend this to anyone visiting the San Antonio, TX area.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFelicidadesFuimos a festejar un aniversario y la pasamos muy bien. La comida fu excelente y los precios son buenos.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall good experience.Overall good experience. Our waiter was excellent but I think had too many tables so we waited a long time for our food to come out and when it did, it was cold.
View spectacular, of course, but we could not get a cab to the rest!!! Apparently San Antonio has a shortage of cabs and when there are big events going on, good luck! So we had to walk in high heels and kept going the wrong way because the entrance is hard to find!! Upon leaving the rest, no idea where cabs wait to pick up people and it is not marked, so we almost lost cab going back to hotel!! For a land mark that has been there a long time, it is definitely not user friendly.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience for my wholeGreat experience for my whole family. Got to enjoy the setting sun and fortake on a stupendous dinner.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there for dinner afterWe went there for dinner after getting engaged. It was a special night and the ambiance and food were perfect. The waitstaff was helpful and friendly. We did have to wait a little long before our waiter first came to our table but other that that it was perfect. We were even sitting near a table with two young children but they were well behaved and enjoying the view as we were.
This is the 2nd time I have dined at chart house tower of Americas and the food has been amazing every time. Well worth it.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Surprise!Obviously, you are paying for the phenomenal view from the top of the tower at Chart House. Having said that, we were impressed with the quality of the food and service. Celebrated our wedding anniversary there Tuesday night. Excellent food from the appetizer to the dessert. Most impressed with the "surf & turf" of short ribs and scallops. Lounge was closed due to a private event, but that did not seem to impact the service or quality of the drinks. Overall, a most pleasant surprise, as I had been led to beleive that the food was average. Will not be our last trip to Chart House!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreetings! I took my motherGreetings!
I took my mother to celebrate her 71st b-day to the Chart House Restaurant in San Antonio recommended by a friend that saw it online. This could not have been a better place to celebrate! The servers were absolutely magnificent in every sense of the word. They were able to change the selections to fit my mother's dietary needs. Just superb service all around! The ambiance and food were absolutely excellent. The ability to overlook Downtown San Antonio was quite fantastic for my mother that did not realize that the restaurant does a slow spin so that you see all aspects of Downtown San Antonio. I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to everyone...4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our celebraton.We enjoyed our celebraton. Food was very good, service was good but the friendliness of the staff made it even more enjoyable. Had a leisurely dinner with a great view.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMfun and great viewVery nice and very cool experience- you do notice the table moving very slowly and it is kind of surreal as you look at the view change out the window- very professional service and the food was excellent
we tried the famous lava cake that they claim is there original - very yummy - a bit exspensive4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChart house accommodated myChart house accommodated my special birthday requests perfectly. The whole experience was memorable and absolutely wonderful.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat,we enjoyed our eveninggreat,we enjoyed our evening with you very much. If there was anything that bothered me it was the music, when we arrived it was a disturbing loud beat. something slow and romantic would have been nicer.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally, We're Here!We were very excited to visit the restaurant. However, the elevator ride was atrocious. On the first loading we exited the car before moving because the attendant overloaded the car. The second time we entered the car was better, but only because a supervisor had spoken to the attendant. The appetizer was great! The potatoes were very dry. The souffle was horrible (maybe someone should teach the pantry chef how to make a proper souffle)! The coffee was good and the scenery was fantastic!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceWould have liked a seat right by the window, but all views are good. Reservations and seating were easy. Sat at bar first, great atmosphere and wonderful bartender. Large table and spacious. Waitress was Rochelle. She was super, very attentive. Salad was delicious. Steak cooked perfectly. Mushrooms were unbelievable. Dessert was a soufflé that was also indescribably wonderful. We didn't get a professional photo, as mentioned by waitstaff, but she took our picture with our camera. Wine and mixed drinks were great.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPrime Rib, clam chowder, cocoanutPrime Rib, clam chowder, cocoanut shrimp, & yellow bread, are excellent! Fish dishes, stuffed flounder and salmon, good and Presentation good. Potatoes too stiff, but nice taste. View was great, but seating effort was real friendly and great! Added ride to observation tower appreciated.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good. Fun placeFood was very good. Fun place to eat and look out at the city at night. Big Downside though: We had reservations for 7:15. We got there at 7:00. It took us about an hour to get up to the restaurant. So, we spent about the same amount of time standing in line for the elevator as we did actually eating our dinner. I think they should warn people because while I am able-bodied, there were two pregnant women in line and a very elderly couple with canes who had to stand for an hour as well. Also, the air conditioning was broken where we had to wait in line so it was quite stuffy.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodGreat food service and view. The lounge was loud and crowded but the everything else was great.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing setting!What a great way to view the area. If I had to do it again I would only order appetizers and desert...the lava cake was great. We had a server that it was her first day...she did a wonderful job. Try to get an afternoon reservation where you have the opportunity to enjoy the view in the daylight and watch the night fall. Amazing view!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything's great EXCEPTWe came in from Ft. Worth for a conference and wanted to take a night to really treat ourselves. I have to mention that the food was absolutely phenomenal! Unfortunately, the entire experience was dumbed down by terrible service. It's upsetting that my appearance as a young woman gives a certain connotation, but I work in the industry and I was hoping for the reputation of Chart House to overcome this idea. Our greet took over 5 minutes, we did not have any water until we finally asked. I tried ordering 2 bottles of wine right off the bat and my guest finished her salad, (which was not the one she had ordered), before we got our first bottle. She would not bus any plates, and was walking away from the table and speaking at the same time.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing viewThe view was amazing! The food took forever (about an hour) to come out and wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be for the price. I had the surf and turf (with scallops) and my girlfriend had the Best of Shrimp. I probably will not go back to eat but to enjoy the view from the observation deck.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMneeds attention to detailI would have given a better review but I expected the food to be more innovative. Seems the menu doesn't look much different than that of a common Landrys Seafood House. You guys have a great thing going up there....why not give it a special menu? Not just another common Landrys menu. I also feel that a chef should use less salt and more ingenuity when cooking. The filet mignon tasted like it was crusted in too much sea salt. The asparagus also tasted like overcooked spinach from Lubys. I think a special restaurant deserves special attention to its menu. That alone will keep people coming back. I wont spend $210 on dinner for 2 here again just to see a birds eye view of San Antonio.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! hadABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! had the greatest time with my husband. service was great, the food amazing and the view was breathtaking especially at night. A recommendation for the appetizer, try the Quail, it was DELICIOUS!!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall excellent place toOverall excellent place to dine with a great view. Drinks and food was outstanding. I would highly recommend the crab cake!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
