    It was my fathers 87th birthday and I had mentioned that when I made the reservation online. Our waiter, Billy, and all the wait staff, were excellent and very attentive. The food was fantastic, I had Sea Bass and my father had a NY Strip, cooked perfectly!! At the end of out meal, it was just my father and I, Billy brought a fabulous chocolate, cinnamon cake w/ice cream topped w/a chocolate ribbon w/Happy Birthday written on it as well as a glass of port and dessert wine for my father. It was vey thoughtful and made the occasion!! I would highly recommend Kirby's.

    Went in to try the Culinaria (Restaurant Week) menu. Hit the bar first and discovered a really nice happy hour menu with good selection of special drink offerings and wine choices. Greeted in the dining room by Billly. Very knowledgable and patient with us on our first time. Tempted to try some of the specials but stuck with the Culinaria menu. Steak was very good, perfecdtlyl prepared, wife had pork loin which was wonderful. We'll be back!

    Kirby's should just stay out of Restaurant Week. We had to ask for that menu, then the waiter steered us away from the better entree. The floor manager then insulted me when I said the tenderloin on a skewer was too tough to eat, perhaps I was trying to cut through the skewer! They did comp my meal, but their offerings did not compare with the other upscale restaurants we visited during Restaurant Week.

    Our service in the dining room was very good, but in the bar was not good, too many people not enough staff, also, very noisy. Happy hour wine choices was basically one white one red. The happy hour menu looked interesting, but due to noise level not sure we would go back and spend much time in the bar.

    We went to Kirby's this time as part of Restaurant Week and chose from the offered menu. Some restaurants can disappoint in their menu selection for this week but not Kirby's - it was wonderful. Food, service and ambience were nothing less than excellent. We both had the beef tenderloin spring rolls with spicy sauce and it was so tasty. My New York Strip - medium rare - was just that, with never a hint of being over or undercooked. Desserts were innovative, right sized and truly just right to end the meal with. This was a great dining experience.

    My wife has been wanting to go to Kirby's for quite sometime. First off the bread had no flavor. My salmon still had the plastic around it (obviously it wasn't freshly made) and I figured that out while the plastic was in my mouth. There were pesky gnats flying around our table. The banana foster/bread pudding was hard to slice and chew through...like microwaved bread. On the upside, the steak and mac n cheese was pretty good. For the money I paid...this was a poor experience overall. I simply cannot recommend Kirby's to any of my friends. As far as a message to the manager...she knew I chewed plastic..brought me out another salmon appetizer after i said I did not want that again. I think mgmnt should have done something about the service.

    As expected, there was no disappointment Saturday night. We happened to dine during restaurant week which just made it even better...price wise. The fried artichoke appetizer was incredible! Cory, our server, had a sixth sense...always knowing when we needed something. The food, ambience and company were fabulous! Will be hitting this hotspot again, soon. Thanks, Kirby's!

    We had a great meal. However, there was live music in the bar that was loud. Fortunately they were on break part of the time we were there. We were also told we would get a dessert for no charge because someone in our party had a birthday. We did not ask for it. We were charged for the dessert but were given a small credit on the bill. It did not cover the cost of it. I think if we had known it would be charged we would have chosen our own dessert or not had one at all.

    The atmosphere was great. The waiter(Shaun) was outstanding, very attentive as well as informative about the menu items. The crab cake was the best I've ever tasted. I loved how a salad and soup of the day came with your entrée. (Other steakhouses I've been to charge separately). The steak was cooked to perfection. Can not wait to go back!!

    This was one of the best experiences I've had at a San Antonio steakhouse. Wait-staff was friendly, attentive, professional, but not stuffy. The food was excellent. Wonderful lamb chops, even my kids enjoyed them with the button mushroom sauce. Steak was perfectly cooked, excellent drinks (though we didn't order wine this time it was an impressive menu). Mashed potatoes were creamy and rustic, one of the best starch side dishes I've had at a SA steakhouse. Will definitely come back as aside from Ruth's Chris, Bohanan's, and Chama Gaucha this was one of the best steak experiences I've had in SA.

    When you choose a restaurant like Kirbys you expect the best. Normally this would be the case. On this occasion I must say that I was very disappointed. Though the service was spectacular, the steaks were very much overdone. My wife's medium rare filet mignon was warm and slightly pink in the middle. My pepper steak was ordered medium and came to the table pretty much done throughout. Both steaks were very dry. I had my steak replaced and by the time it got the table my wife had completed her meal. I was unable to eat my steak therefore I just had it boxed-up to take home. The manager did apologize from the overdone steaks. Honestly at this price point I was very surprised they didn't offer a discount or at least a free dessert.

    It never seems to fail that Kirby's will always excite you with food. This time I had the lamb and talk about tender. It was cooked perfectly. It gets a little loud in there but there is noting wrong with spirited conversation. I don't think there is anything I wouldn't eat except the dairy stuff lol.

    FamilyOfThreeVIP
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    Dinner for 3 was $200, and at that price I would expect excellence. We started off right. The escargot was very good. The wine, while ultra-expensive, was also very good. Lobster bisque also quite tasty. But then the entrees arrived. Sea bass was the best of the bunch, but it was on a bed of gummy risotto with bits of chewy overcooked lobster. And while the sauce went well with the fish, it was a complete disaster with the risotto. So as a plate, it didn't come together. My lamb chops were tough and completely unseasoned, served with a sauce that had no flavor. My partner's filet suffered from the same lack of seasoning and was overcooked the first time. For these prices, head to Perry's or Bob's. You'll be much happier.

    The service was fantastic. Very helpful waiter. Wine/liquor list was good, single malt scotch and bourbon. We were disappointed in the steak. We ordered the large bone in rib eye to share, plenty large but quality was not good. We have been to a lot of steak restaurants and the quality of this steak was below par at this restaurant. We both had salads which were very good and we shared a baked potato. Prices were on target with other steak restaurants, so we expected more. We would go back with expectations lowered.

  • Best Steakhouse in San Antonio
    Bruce
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    We've tried most all the top steakhouses of San Antonio and keep returning to Kirby's. Excellent ambiance and superb food choices. Bar scene is fun too for before or after dining. Only downside ... on last couple visits, the primary waiters have been too pushy/invasive. Frequently interrupting conversations and aggressively hawking extras. Waiters should be helpful, attentive and unobtrusive in our opinion. This is only criticism of Kirby's. That said, we still reurn on a regular basis.
