Another fine meal at 20nine.
Another fine meal at 20nine. The food continues to improve - it use to be that only the pizzas were worth eating, but the entrees are now quite good too. We had apork chop and a venision stack that were both quite delicious. But the reason to go to 20nine is the wine. An excellent list with mostly US choices but some a reasonable sampling from around the world. Ask Rudy, the bartender for suggestions - he has turned us onto some great wines, Turley zins, Orrin Swift, and many more.

The food was of great portions, presented well and of excellent taste. We (my wife and I) enjoyed the "wine trails" which allowed us to sample 3 wines from different regions at the same time. My "Linguine Pescatore" was "To Die For" and with a few hot chili peppers sprinkled over it, makes it a true South Texas favorite!

A Great Wine and Fine Dine Spot
20Nine has been down a long, mixed road of owners, chefs, staff and quality, but we have to say that our last three visits over the past 4 months have proven to be fantastic. We tend to focus on service - because there is a lot of bad service in SA - and 20Nine really has it down, from the hostesses all the way to very excellent busser, (we don't know her name but if you watch carefully she really keeps the restaurant moving!). Good service is the key to NOT ruining a great meal, and the food for the past maybe year has been both excellent AND consistent, (another SA problem). The menu is varied and "foodie" without being pretentious, and the portions are right for the price. Wine is off the charts too.

Decent food, although overpriced.
Decent food, although overpriced. I ordered a charcuterie plate for the table, and as a vegetarian I was hoping for more cheese and so i sent it back in return for a cheese plate which they obliged to! veggie pizza was decent but i have had better. their wine was good, we ordered a bottle of carchello (a spanish red from the jumilla ragion)and a chelsea goldsmith cab which was also good. ambiance was great and our table of 6 had a great time!

The food was fantastic and so was the service. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday because she is a wine lover and we found this tobe a great choice. I plan to go back very soon!

We will all be going back soon.

GREAT FOR GATHERING
I LOVED THIS PLACE. BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND THE CHANDELIER WAS GORGEOUS!

Delicious food and wine selection
Nice place and the food tasted great. The lighting indoors was a little bit too dark for my liking, but overall very nice place.
Nice selection of entrees and main courses and the wine selection is extensive.
I would recommend it to my friends.

Best carpaccio in SA
Heirloom tomato salad was fantastic. Don't understand why it was served on top of a piece of burned toast. Shrimp and grits with scallops another dish not to skip. Wine crispy and cold. Wonder why so few people were there on a Friday night. Service prompt and professional.

Another Great Visit to a Great Spot
20Nine is one of our "go-to" spots when we need an easy decision on where to eat, (because it's always excellent). Fortunately for us, the Chef had just changed the menu a couple weeks ago, and I swear it gets better and better every time. We started with the cheese plate, which is fairly substantial - at least enough for 4 people to start. The Chef also personally delivered some rosemary beignets to the table, which were incredible as an app. Although I went for one of the standard sourdough pizzas, my wife had the grilled octopus salad and my daughter the buffalo mozzarella ravioli with peas. Both are new menu items and were EXCELLENT! We finished out with a fig bread pudding, on par with any other we've had. Great place!

Our favorite place to dine
My husband and I love 20 Nine Wine Bar. The food is always incredible and the service is second to none!

Celebrated our 22 yrs of marriage on July 13 the atmosphere was excellent, its more of a 40's is the in age restaurant.
Felt very at home.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband had looked over the menu online and when we got to the restaurant he told me they had lamb chops, which is my favorite dish. We looked over the menu and didn't see it so we asked our waitress who in turn asked the chef. They had just been taken off the menu but they still had some and very happily made them for us. That's great service!!

1/2 off Champagne on Thursdays, sold!!! We had three entrees and we loved all three. I have to say that the Pork Tenderloin was the best. Can't wait to go back.

A gem in San Antonio!
This was a wonderful experience in every way. Superb wine selection, excellent entrees and appetizers, and an ambiance that really made the whole experience a big hit. Even though there was a good crowd, we were able to have conversation without shouting to each other. If you love fine wine and excellent food, this is a must have in your collection of fine restaurants here in San Antonio!

I took my man for his birthday and we loved it. The food was awesome and the ambiance was lovely. Thanks!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The scallops were our appetizer and they were cooked perfectly. We got the duck for our entree and that was prepared to a perfect med-rare with bourbon infused cherries. We decided pomegranate creme brulee which was also very tasty. Our service was one of the best we've had and the wine list was very extensive however maybe just a bit on the pricey side. Overall, our experience was fantastic and we would definitely return again.

Great outdoor seating to unwind after work.
Food was absolutely wonderful

I was very impressed with the variety of items offered on the menu. I really enjoyed the beet salad and had not seen this dish at other places I have eaten in the past. It was delicious.

Awesome service and well present
Awesome service and well present meals paired with wine groups...Waitress was very imformative.
It was crazy dark where we sat and i didnt get too much of the romantic atmosphere...i sat on a group table for 4 and it was only 2 of us. I had a reservation, so dont know why i got that table. The group sitting next to me was loud and threw off my moment with my date. Maybe the Host should be more alert to couples vs groups.
Still had a good experience...

All that and some wild rice waffles
Excellent service and excellent dining selections. Seems to be one of the best kept secrets in San Antonio! Shhhhhh. :-)

Great For Girls Night
I selected this restaurant for a much needed girls night out. None of us had been here before. What a great surprise! The food and service were beyond excellent. The ambiance was wonderful with muted lighting and lively music but still the music did not interfere with conversation. After dinner, we enjoyed the outside seating area. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and I will be back.

Great food and great wine!
My wife and I went on a Saturday evening date here and the overall experience was very good! Service was outstanding and the experience was perfect!

Great date night
The wine list is excellent and the food is very good. It is a bit pricy but they are happy to split plates and do so with generous portions.

Love the duck. Cooked to your liking. Great wine, as well

First Time Visit
It was easy to find parking nearby, as this location was away from the main stores in the marketplace. The outside dining area was well sheltered. The service was quite friendly, but not intrusive. The wine selection was impressive. The steak was delicious, as were the sides of garlic potatoes and asparagus.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was outstanding. The pepita crusted chicken was delightful and the portion was very large. The pork loin was also very good. The asparagus was fantastic and this coming from someone who doesn't like asparagus! We will definitely return!!!

My only regret- we bought the last bottle of Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you don't mind eating/drinking in the dim lighting then it's great. Hard to see menu items; however, the waiter was well informed bout the food items. All staff were prompt in picking up dishes, filling up glasses, etc. Went earlier in the evening before the evening crowd hit. Inside is quite small. Can imagine things get quite tight when the place is full.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend

While me and my wife are not wine drinkers, the food was great! Service was excellent. The patio was very busy. We ordered the rib eye and stuffed chicken. Both meals were awesome! The meatball appetizer was very traditional and somewhat ordinary. I also had 2 beers. The bill was 75ish. I can't wait to go back.
