Food and service were excellent.
Food and service were excellent. Interesting twists on some old dishes as well as some very new items. Staff knew us by name the first night and remembered us throughout our stay. The chef came out and greeted us and made us special dishes for us on our return trips. I will definitely go back.

Absolutely gorgeous setting
Absolutely gorgeous setting and impeccable service. Food was amazing, although it is a small menu with limited selections. However, everything we had was outstanding!

Great place with an amazing view
Outstanding view, an amazing menu & a great wine list! Rated low on noise level only because there was a large group also there from a convention held at the hotel that was very loud. Due to the other patrons & other surrounding I feel this was not the usual noise level of the restaurant but simply an unruly group. Service was one of the best. No children's menu is offered but they were VERY accommodating to our 10 year old that eats like an adult anyway. Expensive but well worth it!!

I have to thank Shane Tiller and the staff at Francesca's at Sunset for taking care of us on you my wifes birthday! Food was great! We had a great time. We will be back for sure.

outstanding!!!!!! delicious food
We've been there three times and every time we're impressed. The ambiance is so calm and peaceful. As soon as we walked through the door it feels like life just slows down (much needed for a mom and dad of three constantly running around) the service is amazing but the food is the best!!! This is by far our favorite restaurant.

This is an excellent restaurant overall with a great menu and very pleasant view. However due to lots of Six Flags family guests we ended up with a screaming kid 2 tables over. This distracts from the upscale dining ambiance.

This was our third time eating at Francesca's at Sunset, and, as was the case the other times, our dinner was outstanding! The food was delicious, with interesting selections for all tastes. Our servers, Jeremy and Karl, were very attentive without being overbearing. And the view of the foot hills north of San Antonio is hard to beat.

Pleasant Evening With Friends
Six of us went to our neighborhood favorite at 6 PM and were informed they were booked solid until 8:30. Open Table to the rescue! We had all dined at The Creek over the years, but it is 9 miles away and not at the top of our minds. Reservations were accepted immediately and we drove there. We were greeted by name, offered margaritas, and shown to our table. The Wine List is enviable, the seafood fresh and the veggies crisp. We will be back.

Great evening with loved one.
A romantic dinner while watching the sun set over the hill country. The food was great and the service was excellent. It's a bit pricey, not as expensive as a high end steakhouse but very worth the convenience if staying at the hotel or looking for an evening out with your loved one. This was the second time we've been and I would definitely recommend their beef tenderloin and the rack of lamb is a must here. Will be coming back again!

Nice to try
The location is nice, and the views at sunset are beautiful. The appetizers we shared were the chilled soup and the scallops. The scallops were really wonderful. The first few bites of the avocado/cucumber soup were refreshing, but didn't entice us to eat the whole thing. The Mahi Mahi dinner entree was slightly undercooked and was sitting on pureed vegetables in squid ink, which unfortunately made it just black, like it was sitting on motor oil. The taste was great if you shut your eyes. My husband had the venison, and it was very good. Water refill didn't happen as frequently as it should have. Also would have been nice to have a non-cheesecake chocolate dessert. The lemon dessert was somewhat bitter and left a strong pine-nut aftertaste.

The negative was getting there
The negative was getting there at a time to watch the sunset. Then denied the view by the hostess refusing to allow us to move even after we said ALL we got to see was a wall.. There was other three tables open with a direct view of the sunset that we're the same size as the table she said we had to take. She sat down three other couples at those tables. One couple didn't even have a reservation and got to watch the sunset. So much for our 26 year anniversary romantic dinner watching the sunset. The fact is the hostess simply didn't care about customer service just sit we're I say so I can go back to front.

Our experience was excellent.
If you are looking for a romantic spot with great food and fantastic service, then Franseca's at Sunset is the place!

Above and beyond....
Two words - lobster enchiladas. They are no longer on the menu and it’s my wife's favorite. Too bad for us, right? Wrong. I called a few days in advance just to ask if they still had them. The woman that took my call said no but that she would check with the executive chef anyways and get back to me the following day. Not only did I receive a call-back but I received it just 1 hour later. Unfortunately it was with bad news, no lobster enchiladas. We arrive for our reservations yesterday expecting to order something different off the menu, when we are seated the gentleman tells us that they "found us some lobster enchiladas, just for us!!". My wife was ecstatic and of course so was I.

We really enjoy Francesca's..definitely a 4-5x a year spot for times when it is just my wife and I. Food and service always very good, and the scenery is really hard to beat. I do think that a couple years ago Francesca's was one of the top restaurants in San Antonio; however, San Antonio's culinary scene has really evolved and they have plenty of great competition out there. Still can't beat the view though!

My birthday celebration with with husband and friends could not have been better! The service, company food, wine and view were all first class!

This was a fabulous place
This was a fabulous place to dine. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion. I took my granddaughter who turned 18 and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Afterwards we took pictures around the hotel that turned out beautiful because of the courtyard's natural landscape. I'll definitely be back with my husband!

This restaurant is very romantic, the service was impeccable, and the food was fabulous. It would make Gordon Ramsey proud! This was our 2nd visit, and the view was breathtaking.

We went to Francesca's for my wife's birthday. The food was superb and the service fantastic. We went at sunset and the views were great.

Good Food, Loud Music
Celebrated our anniversary at the restaurant. It is in a hotel, so there are hotel patrons that also dine here. During our visit, there was a family with kids there so it wasn't as romantic as I had hoped. Also, the music they played was a bit loud and not very romantic either. It was like new age jazz that was heavy paced and loud. Service was outstanding and they were on top of things. The food was tasty and priced just right. I would love to go back except for the fact that you may be sharing the dining space with kids in what one would hope to be a quite romantic getaway.

Excellent Food; Excellent Server
My wife and I were staying at the Westin La Cantera for our anniversary and wanted something easy. So we opted to eat in the hotel at Francesca's. First of all, the food was off the chart -- really exceptional. Second, our server (Jeremy) was truly outstanding. We lived in NYC for more than 12 years and I'd like to think we've been exposed to some of the best restaurants and servers anywhere, yet Jeremy stood out to both my wife and me. He was incredibly knowledgeable, courteous, friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience without "smothering" us. The restaurant itself could probably use a "face lift", but don't change the food and DEFINITELY don't let Jeremy get away!

Great dinner on Halloween.
Both of the meat dishes were tender and juicy, the venison and the duck, although the duck was not seared as hot as requested. The wine, an old vine tempranillo, was spectacular. The service was professional and friendly. The service was very professional and friendly.

Dinner with friends
Francesca's is our "Place" for special occasions. We celebrated a birthday and anniversary with friends and as usual, EVERYTHING was wonderful although there was some delay in the waiter taking our order. Other than that, the food, service and ambience are all about as good as it gets in the San Antonio area.

Superb Food with Hill Country View
San Antonio is blessed with so many fine restaurants, it is hard to choose one for a special occasion. But, for my wife's Birthday, we picked Francesca's, both for the sunset view and elegant food. We were not disappointed.
Quiet dining with superb service, locally sourced and perfectly prepared food for all tastes, wide variety of wines (including an unbelievable Dom Perignon by the glass special), and, of course, chocolate! Our servers were attentive but not obtrusive, and the Westin venue exudes excellence at every level. We'll be back.

We had a lovely time at Francesca's for Thanksgiving dinner. We enjoyed the chef's special dinner included turkey, veggies, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. We asked for the dinners without the turkey (semi-vegetarian) and the waiter made the extra effort of asking if we wanted to change our order because the stuffing had chicken stock. We didn't and it was delicious! They also didn't not charge us the dinner price - but only for the sides - so it was not only wonderful - it was inexpensive to boot. I will be happy to dine here again!

perfect for special occasion
Thanksgiving day dinner...just perfect. Looking for an upscale restaurant for that special occasion, well look no further. My table was overlooking the golf course, and as it is the holiday season, the trees outside the windows were elegantly lit with Christmas illumination. Ambience is quiet, with well appointed décor. Service left nothing to be desired, and the food..just excellent. I would recommend the redfish as my favorite entrée, paired with an excellent, though uncelebrated pinot grigio: Bollini Trentino! This was to be a special Thanksgiving dinner, and I was looking for a restaurant to complete a special holiday event. I couldn't have been happier with this restaurant! Enjoy!!
