Diner Reviews
  • "We have eaten at Fredrick's Bistro before and it never ever disappoints. Not to be missed is the Escargot with Spanish Chorizo appetizer. The rich, elegant flavor lingers on the palate for just the right amount of time. This time we had the Snapper with an equally delicious mustard sauce. The restaurant is not large, you need a reservation made well in advance. The best thing about the restaurant is that they never rush their diners in an attempt to turn their tables. We had leisurely dinner with knowledgeable foodie friends -- a splendid time was had by all."

  • "We have never had even an average meal here. The food and service are always exemplary. My fish was outstanding and my wife's chicken was superb. Definitely a place for us to continue to go to for special occasions."

  • "This place could be fun and exciting - but the decor is drab and the menu underwhelming. The waitress was helpful and attentive. The sauce on my shrimp was bland and normal. Nothing special. The lemon dessert was the same. The hostess was unkempt and bedraggled - not a good first impression. Maybe that effected the rest of my visit."

  • "Hard to find (sign not obvious) and servings more American-sized than French, but an excellent meal. The Sunday wine at half price was much appreciated; it provided an opportunity to try a wine that we would not normally order. We recommend the duck and osso buca."

  • "4 of us for an early dinner Tuesday evening. Have been here many times all with favorable results. Service good, drinks better. A very nice wine list. The menu is simple with many wonderful meals. I often get the Osso Bucco which is great. Two in the party got the trout which say say is exceptional (better be, they get it every time )! Steaks are good as well. Frederick, the owner. always stops by, not just to say hi, but stays for a little chat."

  • "We decided to go to Fredrick's Bistro for Chinese New Year, what a blast. I believe this was the first time I have had upscale Chinese food. 4 courses prix fix Chinese fusion. Really a surprising and great change. Perhaps Fred should consider opening an upscale Chinese restaurant ;)"

  • "Multiple visits to this restauant. As usual, the meal was well prepared and very good. Our server was either new or not motivated and getting a refill or anything was a chore. Unusual for Frederick's."

  • "Was on a business trip Wednesday and looking for a nice meal with a colleague. No hostess to be found and a harried waitress finaly grunted at us. The restaurant had 3 tables occupied and some quiet bar patrons in the other half of the restaurant. Menu was fit for foodies. I had the truffled Chilean sea bass special, but no scent of truffles was detected. My friend, who prefers low brow meals, was satisfied with his parmesan cod choice. The vegetable sides were good as was the Napa cab by the glass. Irish coffee was coffe with whipped cream and some whiskey- but no Irish. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant. Since it is close to my office in SAT and has the feel of a nice restaurant, I will be giving it one more try on my next trip."

  • "Always a delight! Great variety of menu and special items, perfectly prepared. A little on the pricey side, but they always deliver a first-rate dining experience. This is a quiet place, perfect for business discussion or romantic interlude."

  • "We were on a whirlwind long weekend trip from Corpus Christi with stops in San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, back through San Antonio and home to Corpus. We had a lot of good food during the weekend but our meal at Frederick's was by far the best! We shared the special lobster crab salad, the country pate, the escargot, and the duck confit pizza. Everything was excellent. We will be back!!!!"

  • "Restaurant is trading on an old reputation from Alamo Heights & not living up to it! Had to change tables to get away from kitchen staff's conversation. Slow Slow service. Waitress told us about 1/2 the specials....had to hear from another table after we ordered about other specials & 1/2 off wine. Caesar Salad was definitely a Costco pre-fab! Dressing had no taste. Croutons like cardboard. Lettuce from a bag. Parmesan cheese with no flavor. Mushroom sauce (same sauce is on lots of menu items) has too much salt or pre-processed food with sodium....left mouth dry. Dry chicken. Bone dry pork chop...probably reheated. Just like going to a chain restaurant where food is prepared elsewhere. All this and owner was there oblivious."

  • "We ate here on a weeknight with friends from out of town. The menu was innovative and varied. For appetizers, we chose pate, escargot, oysters and we all enjoyed our choice. Entrees we tried were salmon, "healthy" fish, lamb and all enjoyed. Service was attentive. Wine list not extensive but good choices. A nice neighborhood bistro, but not inexpensive. We'll go here again."

  • "Started out with Escargot w/ Spanish Chorizo, Mushroom & Garlic Butter Sauce. Best ever and we don't share. Once again, the seafood was outstanding. Perfectly cooked scallops, shrimp and fish. Reservation for Saturday night at 7:00 and the place was packed but I would not let that get in the way of going back again on a Saturday night. Sunday nights are a little more quieter and they used to have 1/2 price wine. Not sure if they still do at this time."

  • "My favorite restaurant when I lived in San Antonio and I cannot find ANYTHING that comes close to the food, service and ambiance where I live in California. I am in San Antonio pretty often and look forward to the delicious meals I always get at Frederick's Bistro (or Frederick's Restaurant located on Broadway). EVERYTHING is always prepared to perfection and served with a thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Their menu has something for everyone. If you think you don't like desserts, you haven't tried one of the many that Frederick's offers. My personal favorite is the Chocolate Rum Cake Euphoria . It is a Happy Dining Journey that is not to be missed."

  • "The menu was prix-fixe, but quite varied in course selection,so it was easy to find something that suited. All the courses were excellent. Service was a bit slow,but given the crowd,understandable. The two hostesses did double duty with drink service and our waiter (who was actually a part of the kitchen staff) was polite and knowledgeable. We have been to Fredrick's (both locations) many times and have never had a bad experience."

  • "Excellent evening because of all the attention given and details. Coming in reservation was ready, table set simple and efficient. Waitress knows the menu and the wine, very attentive without pushing. Noise is on the high side, and probably could use an ignore lighting. But most of all the food is exquisite, well presented, each bite a delight. Would go back as often as I could and do recommend it."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "We went for lunch and enjoyed the quiet ambience. The food (red snapper & pork chop) was simply average for a French bistro. The cream/butter sauces were too rich & over powered the natural flavor of both meats, even for traditional French cuisine."

  • "We had a memorable dinner several years ago and decided to celebrate a special dinner on 11/19/13. My guest and I were promptly seated and drink orders taken. We were then presented with the menus and informed of the specials. Upon return, my guest and I both requested the specials. I then learned they were out of the halibut but could be prepared with mahi mahi. Mind you it was early - our rez was 6:45. Okay so far but downhill from there on. We had to request bread be served and a second glass of wine. The wait for the entrees was excessive, as was the wait for the check. We had to request it when our server happened to be in the vicinity. Generally-marvelous food spoiled by unexpected ordinary service."

  • "Have been here MANY times (15 to 20). The food is always wonderful, service impeccable and all in a friendly quiet atmosphere. I get something different most times I go and am always impressed. The wine list is also suitable for whatever it is you decide on. Had the filet this time, cooked perfectly and a nice Pinot Noir from Marlborough New Zealand."

  • "The food is excellent! It doesn't matter if you compare it to restaurants in San Antonio or France.(We have just returned from France and have been there three times). My husband and I were celebrating a birthday. I have been there many times with girlfriends for the Happy Hour and ordering lighter...the food and service was excellent then, also."

  • "Incredible service from Riley who manned the bar AND waited the dining tables in the bar area. We sat here to enjoy some apps from the Happy Hour menu and remained to order and eat our dinner.She was incredibly efficient and gave wonderful menu advice.The unique take on escargot is phenomenal! Oysters and eggplant also super tasty starters.My son devoured his pizza and asked for a second! Seafood pasta and mahi/scallop special were divine. Pork osso buco also very good, but a bit of work to get meat (cutting away fat and tissue a challenge).Rich, creamy, dreamy chocolate pecan cake and moist, chocolate covered Rum Euphoria (with a kick!) made for a sweet,declicious ending to the perfect birthday meal. Won't wait until next bday to return!"

  • "Frederick Costa in my opinion has one of the best restaurants in San Antonio. The menu has something for everyone and the daily specials are really special. Frederick is the expert in preparing fish. I've eaten there many times and almost always order the fish. The presentation is a work of art and the flavors and sauces are the best. You will not have a bad meal here. Starting with some of the most delicious dinner rolls found anywhere, Frederick has proven that he can be creative and consistent with everything he prepares. The staff is also very attentive and the bar scene is lively. I highly recommend eating here. The prices are also reasonable for the portion size and quality of the food."
